The Lipstick League - Week of 9.26.16

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

When it comes to haircare, what styling product are you reaching for the most these days? 

G's answer: Do any of you remember a while back when Ulta had that deluxe freebie promo for Matrix Total Results Miracle Creator Multi-Tasking Treatment? Well sometimes I don't use those freebies right when I get them, and they get tossed into the "try this when I'm desperate and out of my good stuff" box. But for some reason, I tried that product right when I got it and I have been obsessed with it ever since. That stuff does something magical to my hair, and I need to review it for you ASAP. It's $16 for 6.5 oz. but currently on sale for $12. And guess what? It's going to be $7.99 at Ulta on 10/15 only (and free shipping if you're Platinum) as part of The Get Gorgeous Hair Event. So yeah, I'm stocking up.

The Lipstick League Links of the Week

Blushing Noir - Fall is here and red lips are where it’s at! If you’re into pigment and comfort grab you some MAC Liptensity Lipstick shades!

Clumps of Mascara - Because let’s face it...sometimes those pores greet people before you can. There isn’t one way to minimize them so I’ve compiled a list of several ways.

EauMG - I’ve been impressed with so many new perfume releases over the past few months, like this one by Elizabeth & James.

Gouldylox - This powder foundation is actually as buildable, beautiful and long wearing as they promise. (And I hate powder foundations!)

My Beauty Bunny - The pumpkin pie body scrub from The Compassionate Chick’s Guide to DIY Beauty is perfect for PSL season!

Nouveau Cheap - Can the Target Cartwheel app get any better? Actually, yes. It can! Here’s the scoop on the new Cartwheel Perks program that may be coming to your phone soon (I’m in a test market, so I have early access).

Olive & Ivy - The L’Occitane holiday advent calendar is finally out!!! Check out a spoiler of what's in it this year here.

Phyrra - I've fallen hard for the new Kat Von D MetalMatte Palette. Find out what makes it the perfect eyeshadow palette!

Prime Beauty - is totally smitten with the POPSUGAR Must Have Box for September. A little fashion, a little beauty, a few practical items and yummy snacks make for a fabulous subscription box. Read her review and get $5 off your first box!

we heart this - for when you want to get in on the micellar water craze, but you're also super lazy...

  1. Right now I have been using Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray. I spritz 10 times into my palm and rub it into the roots at my crown. Gives me crazy volume and last until I shampoo. Sometimes it's 3 days!

  2. I took that little freebie on a recent trip and I like it, but I'm loyal to Its a 10. I have 4 bottles on backup.

  3. G, do you know what happened to Loreal EverPure 7 in 1 hair spray (you know the one you thought smelled like 7 up)? Can't find anywhere!? So sad as you get me hooked on....

  4. Every time I style, without fail, Garnier Pure Clean Gel tames my frizz and defines my 3c curls. It is thick so Iike to add water to my palms and rub a dollop until it is the runny consistency I need to get it to spread. It is the final step after leave-in conditioner and styling cream. It even goes on sale for $3 every now and then! Quite a steal for my Holy Grail hair gel.
