The Lipstick League – week of 6.23.14

Lipstick League Question of the Week

 Which lip color do you reach for when you’re in need of a pick-me-up? 

G's answer: Whenever I need my face to just look a little bit brighter, rosier, healthier, etc., I always end up reaching for my Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss lippie in #104. For some reason, that color always does the trick even when I'm not wearing anything else on my face but a sheer BB cream (or nothing at all).

Lipstick League Links of the Week

  Gouldylox Reviews - Makeup Wars is all about purple eye shadows! They look amazing on everyone; which is your favorite?

  My Beauty Bunny - Who says natural makeup has to be boring? Go bold with the Cherry Bomb Lip Lacquer (and more!) from Cate McNabb.

  Nouveau Cheap - swatches the new Maybelline The Nudes Palette and gives you her first impressions (plus a few dupe comparisons).

  Pink Sith - wonders if you actually read nail polish reviews, or just look at the pictures. She puts you to the test with some pretty Nail Polishes from FingerPaints!

  Prime Beauty - discusses the issue of rosacea, a common problem among women and how to treat it. But that's not all...enter to win a Cetaphil Gift Basket AND a trip to the Emmy's!

  Phyrra - brings you an Orange is the New Black Flaca Makeup Tutorial! See other character tutorials too!

  we heart this - if James Vincent tells you need a Fan Brush, well then, you go get yourself a Fan Brush (and read his advice on what to do with it.)

  Clumps of Mascara - is in love with this Too Faced Melted. How can a lipstick/gloss/stain thingy be THIS fantastic?

  EauMG - It’s officially summer and here are Victoria’s perfume picks for Summer 2014!


  1. For me it's always going to be either Burts Bees tinted balm in Rose or Bare Minerals gloss in Cupcake...despite my lippie collection which is kind of obscene, those are my two go-to's when I need to not look corpse like!

  2. Hmmm. In general just applying some kind of lipstick or balm cheers me up. Maybelline BabyLips, NYX Butter Balms, or any kind of lip crayon make me happy. Or just "shopping" my collection.

  3. Lip gloss. Something shiny and non sticky.

  4. A bright color. Nyx shocking pink.
