The Lipstick League Question of the Week
What is the most you have paid for a mascara (and was it worth it)?
G's answer: I'm a drugstore mascara girl for life, so that's hard to answer. This past May I did buy this Diorshow Mascara + Primer Set ($27.50) when Belk was running one of their $10 off $20 sales. So that brought the set down to $17.50, which I guess isn't obscenely expensive given the price of high-end mascaras these days. Anyway, it didn't work that well for me. I loved the primer, but the mascara itself was too clumpy and the brush was too big for my tastes. It's weird because I actually prefer a bit of clumpage to my mascaras since I have tiny lashes, but I just couldn't get this one to work for me. I'm thinking it was a combination of the formula and the brush--I just couldn't seem to control it during application.

EauMG is Currently Craving: N°5 L’EAU. Change can be good. And this new perfume is the perfect example of this. This update is a sheerer version but hasn’t lost any of that velvetiness that I associate with classic N°5.
