The Lipstick League – week of 4.21.14

Lipstick League Question of the Week

If you could splurge on one luxury beauty treatment (think facial, salon visit, massage etc.), what would it be? 

G's answer: If we're dreaming here, I would shell out the dough needed to get my hair cut and colored by Tabatha Coffey (love her!). I would also probably need some serious connections to make that happen, but this is a fantasy, right?

  1. My splurge is getting my highlights and my roots done 2 or 3 times a year. I find it so relaxing

  2. Some kind of face peal thingy. Over a year ago I used coconut oil on my face for 3 days and it broke me out so badly that I'm still dealing with acne scars. If love to have my skin back again.

  3. I have to tell you about my great find at BigLots-I cant seem to post on you tell me page,but found an amazing bb cream,made in Korea!!!! It is epielle (as in wipes) aqua tinted bb cream-it comes in light beige and natural beige, is spf 20,exp.2016-and contains glycerin,niacinamide,allantoin, -the spf is octyl methoxycinnamate and titanium dioxide!!!!! I apologize for putting this in comments, but if you try it you will see why I HAD to tell you about it-and it is only $2.80!!!!!!! Amazing stuff!!!!!!!! : )
