The Lipstick League - week of 10.27.14

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

What is your favorite season when it comes to new beauty collections? 

G's answer: Definitely fall. I love all of the rich, jewel-toned shades that we typically get in the fall, since those types of colors always work better for my skintone. I do love spring collections though, because pastels are so fun when the weather starts to warm up. But I mostly love pastels in theory since those types of colors tend to look horrible with my skintone.

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by EauMG - The Non-Blonde shares 10 perfumes that she thinks EVERYONE should try at least once. Here’s her list of fragrances to Try Before You Die. This has me thinking about what I would include on such a list...


  1. Winter...Christmas gift sets! Perfect time to try out new makeup.

    1. I agree. The fall/winter season is the best time for new makeup. That when I wear more of it. Spring and summer is for outdoor activites and limited or light makeup. And Christmas brings lovely gift sets. Yeah!

  2. I have to agree with you G, I do love me some dark vampy fall tones!

  3. This is my first year of growing my makeup collection and I'd definitely say fall to winter is the BEST time to get one's hands on makeup. Fall brings forth really lovely shades that I find to be very workable and winter, of course, rains holiday palettes that are of great value upon us. I'll definitely be keeping that in mind next year and save early for fall and holiday collections. :)
