The Lipstick League Week of: 5.4.15

lipstickleague_large

Question of the Week: What are your thoughts about tightlining? Are you a fan? And if so, is it essential or just for special occasions?

My Answer: I am definitely a fan! I really dislike seeing any white space of skin between lids/lashes when people wear eyeliner, so I always do it if I wear it.

The Lipstick League Links of the Week:

we heart this – Summer is coming, Fekkai will make sure your hair is ready in it-girl like fashion.

Beautygeeks – It sucks that the US lacks the range of micellar cleansers that Canadians have. But Simple Cleansing Micellar Water IS sold in the States, it’s perfume-free — and you shouldn’t keep it in the bathroom.

Clumps of Mascara – butter LONDON has a new nail polish formula out. Woohoo! But is it worth the extra $3?

Gouldylox Reviews – Tired of nudes and not feeling the summer brights, either? Play with color and texture with this gorgeous palette from Smashbox instead!

Love for Lacquer – 18K Gold Plated Brushes?! Yes please! Make Mom feel LUXE this Mother’s Day with these gorgeous picks from b-glowing.com!

My Beauty Bunny – We dropped by The Organic Pharmacy for a Green Coffee Body Sculpting Treatment and went home with their Beauty Drops for glowing skin. Read why they are worth the splurge!

Friday Favorites: Books

Favorite Books

Happy Friday everyone!

I decided to do something a little different for Friday faves today. Rather than pick more makeup or nail polish to talk about I wanted to show you my favorite books of all time.

Considering my book collection is pretty large I actually didn’t have a hard time with this challenge. Most of these books have been my favorites for 30+ years now and they will always remain so. I have about a million other books I absolutely love as well, but I can’t list ’em all or we would be here all month long!

L’Occitane Peony Collection

LOccitane Peony Collection

The L’Occitane Peony Collection aka Pivoine Flora (if you wanna get all fancy) is new and features a variety of options all with the delicious flowery scent of the peony. And they also have a new skincare and cosmetics line called Pivoine Sublime.

There is a Mediterranean legend of a beautiful nymph named Paeonia who was so courted by the gods that a jealous goddess transformed her into a flower with a thousand petals: a peony. Since then, this symbol of beauty brightens every spring with its dazzling show of colors and scents.

The Peony collection includes Beauty Milk, Hand Cream, Beauty Cream, Shimmering Oil, Shower Gel, Petal-shaped soap, Eau de Toilette Roll-on, a candle, Perfecting Essence, Perfecting Cream, CC Cream, Perfecting Mist and Tinted Lip Balm. The top notes are blackcurrant, bergamot and pink pepper. The heart notes are peony and freesia. The base notes are white musk, sandalwood and peach. All come together and smell fantastic!

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Fringe & Get Lucky

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow

The other day I posted some swatches of the Where The Light Is ColourPop Super Shock Shadow set and now I have two more for ya!

I decided to pick up Fringe and Get Lucky because I had seen some photos on Instagram of people wearing them and they looked positively illuminating and pretty. As I mentioned before I had a really hard time narrowing down which ones to get. I literally want 99% of all of them! But since I hadn’t yet tried the formula, I figured I better stick to a smaller number of them in case I didn’t like them. Well I like them, and my fingers feel itchy to order more.
