The Lipstick League – week of 5.19.14

Lipstick League Question of the Week

What are some of your favorite blushes, highlighters and/or bronzers for summer?

G's answer: I've been reaching for my Milani Matte Baked Blush in Delizioso Pink a lot lately. It gives my cheeks such a pretty glow, and it lasts forever. Also, I'm still obsessed with my Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint in Pop of Pink because it's so easy to apply with just my fingers, it blends beautifully and it lasts all day even in warm weather. And of course I'm loving the e.l.f. Studio Blush Palettes! For bronzers, the tan shade in the Light e.l.f. Blush Palette is a nice one for lighter skintones (it's also good for contouring). And I always seem to fall back on my Milani XL Bronzer in Radiant Tan, which really works for my skintone. As for highlighters, I've been loving the Physicians Formula Nude Natural Palette when I want some nice shimmer. I also still love my Milani Illuminating Face Powders when I'm looking for a softer sheen (my absolute favorite is Hermosa Rose).

  1. What exactly is the lipstick league & how would a beauty blogger like me get in on it?

  2. I'm really loving the Milani blush in Coralina that I picked up at Walgreens in clearance recently. Such a pretty warm color and I'm loving the touch of shimmer. I've never been a big fan of bronzer but I do have an e.l.f. bronzer/blush duo that I like for attempts at mild contouring.
