The Lipstick League Week of 5.16.17: What's Your Current Obsession?

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

We all go through phases when it comes to beauty products, so tell us what you’re really into right now. Makeup? Skincare? Fragrance? Haircare? Or…? 

G's answer: For the past several months I've been way into fragrance and my obsession isn't letting up, even though wallet is yelling, "Make it stop!" I purchased several old favorites when Target had that 20% off sale on their site, and I'm having a great time revisiting them. I plan to do some reviews soon of the ones I'm loving (and not loving).

The Lipstick League Links of the Week

Nouveau Cheap - Ulta has added so many new brands to their website over the past few months, but did you hear about these two brands that will be available (very) soon?

Phyrra - Do you have problem skin but hate caking on foundation? I share my Glowing Light Coverage Foundation Routine for Problem Skin!

Prime Beauty - Ding dong, Avon calling! Color me impressed with the updated color rich Avon True Color Nourishing Lipsticks! Read my review and see swatches.

we heart this - Feel the power of the BUBBLE!

Beauty Junkies Unite - I'm getting ready for some bright summer fun with the new MAC Fruity Juicy Collection!

Blushing Noir - Just when I thought Chrissy Teigen had slayed every aspect of my life she went ahead and did a collab with BECCA Cosmetics, proving she actually IS my spirit animal. Check out the Glow Face Palette here!

EauMG - I’ve decided I just want to smell like the French and Italian Riviera this summer. And this aromatic citrus from Tonatto Profumi smells just like that.

fanserviced-b - I tried the pricey, Instagram-famous Hanacure zombie mask and the results were pretty horrific.

Gouldylox - Bored with your beauty stash? Here are >ten reasons you need to update your routine right now!

Nouveau Cheap is Currently Craving: I just discovered that Tocca has hair fragrances now, and I’m super excited to try them (especially Cleopatra, since I love the idea of my hair smelling of grapefruit and cucumber).


  1. I'm obsessed with lipstick, which is the norm unless I'm sick. But I really like the sheer blotted lipsticks from ColourPop right now and have been super into those for a couple weeks.
    Also I ended up hacking my hair short (from shoulder length to a sort of pixie with it longer on top) and have been having fun playing with more product etc., instead of just trying to tame frizz, and being thrilled it's not super tangled and shedding so much.

  2. Right now I am so into highlighters. I can't get enough! I stick pretty much with just a couple but just keep buying palettes!

  3. I have been feeding my lipstick obsess obsession by purchasing gobs of Colour Pop lipsticks. The new blotted matte ones are super nice.

    Lipstick is easy when I want to feel like I tried but not have a full face of makeup on.
