The Lipstick League - Week of 9.5.16

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

What’s your favorite fragrance to wear during late summer/early fall? 

G's answer: I love anything with a predominant fig note during this time of year. Figs are in season both in June, and then again from August through October, so they bridge the gap beautifully between summer and fall. Sweet like summer fruits, but also cozy and autumnal. My favorite luxury fig fragrance is L'Artisan Premier Figuier (which I got for a steal at a local discount store a few years back). For affordable fig fragrances, I love Pacifica Mediterranean Fig. Oh, and Bath & Body Works Brown Sugar & Fig is always fun, too.

The Lipstick League Links of the Week

Phyrra - Want to glow on a budget? I've got the Best Highlighters for Under $10!

Prime Beauty - plays in the mud and comes out glowing! You've got to try Farmhouse Fresh Peat Perfection Mask!

we heart this - A haircare line that's covered in vintage babes and has an ambassador who defines the word "fearless" Beauty & Pin Ups!

Beauty Junkies Unite - The sun is still blazing in SoCal, which means hair color doesn't get a break! See what haircare combo Amber is using to keep her color true.

Blushing Noir - There’s really nothing “basic” about the new Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette. Even if you have Basics 1 and 2 - you’ll need to add Ultimate to your makeup collection ASAP!

Clumps of Mascara - Okay, glow girls and boys, the MAC Taraji collection has finally hit stores and I can’t get enough of those beautiiiiiful MSFs.

EauMG - I’ve tried the newest perfume from Tom Ford which I’ve heard described as “love it or hate it”. Follow this link to find out if I love or hate Orchid Soleil!

Gouldylox - Have dry, frizzy hair that can't be tamed? I found the three products that are worth their weight in gold to anyone who suffers from dry hair.

Nouveau Cheap - If the idea of coconut and blueberry together in one lip balm sounds yummy to you, then you might want to check this one out.

Olive & Ivy - I’m sharing my back to school beauty must-haves and hosting a GIVEAWAY for some of them!

  1. Fig sounds like a really nice fall scent! I've never really thought about it! Definitely photo investigate this G!

  2. For spring and summer I like florals, and start easing a bit out of that as fall comes in. That's when I'll dig out the Chanel No. 5 again, or something like Opium. I also found a perfume oil last fall that I ended up really liking, with hints of honey, amber, tobacco and blossoms. To me it smells warm and comforting in some odd way. I'll order samples from Etsy, too, for variety, seeking perfumes with hints of rum, amber, honey, tobacco, musks, etc.

    1. Heidi,on the off chance you see this, sounds like you'd love many of Wylde Ivy's winter scents (near bottom of page):

    2. I lied. The scents I'm referring to are the Fall/Winter scents, right below the Halloween scents. Not near bottom of page! :)

  3. Elizabeth Taylor's Passion! I recently received a sample of Armani's Acqua di Gioia in Jasmine and have been trying to find it at Kohl's.
