The Lipstick League - week of 4.18.11

Peep sushi!

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! The week after Easter is always fun for cruising your local drugstores in search of 50, 75 or even 90% off Easter candy, and I for one am pretty happy about that--I prefer Easter candy over Christmas candy and even Valentine's candy--I just love the pretty pastel colors and marshmallow goodness that's unleashed by candy manufacturers this time of year. I love malted milk eggs, and my favorite candy blog did a wonderful review of this candy that's got me itching to track it down. Have any of you tried the LE Three Musketeers Marshmallows they released this year?

The Lipstick League Question of the Week:

What’s your signature lip color?

G's Answer: That's an easy one: pinky-brown! For over a decade now, pinky-brown lip colors have dominated my lipstick stash. I think the first one I ever fell in love with was Bobbi Brown Brown (or maybe it was a shade by Club Monaco--anybody remember that brand?), and my quest for the perfect pinky-brown lip color has continued through the years. Pinky-brown is always the shade I gravitate toward in any lip color collection because it always seems to work with my skintone and it's just so versatile.

What's YOUR signature lip color?


  1. The link for Orange to LA doesn't work.

  2. I love me some pinky beige lip colors and I keep searching for perfect pinky coral or coraly pink! This last search keeps me going during the summer months!

  3. I'm def a peach/coral to bright pink gal! My go-tos are my Mac Pink Nouveau and Yes to Carrots coral lip tint :P
