How many makeup products do you use for an everyday face?

That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 8.24.15 Question of the Week: How many makeup products do you use for an everyday face? Answer: Kind of a lot! Here's what I do though.

3 Things:  Summer Camp

3 Things: Summer Camp

Netflix recently debuted Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and it got me thinking about summer camp. Me thinking looks a lot like this... I'd always wanted to go and finally managed to nag my parents into letting me do one week at Girl Scout camp during the summer before 5th grade. Once there, it became apparent that…

Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse swatches and review

Bringing smell-free color to your sun-less body Summer is winding down and we're about to enter the seasons where my husband begins to refer to me as "pasty" (thanks honey!) But it's true, with fall and winter on the brink, my skin gets so dull and pale, I start to look ghostly. Bronzer only gets me so far and it's…

Nonie Crème Colour Prevails Watercolour Eye Shadow Palette in Nude and Neutral, swatches and review

As a fan of Russian author Vladimir Nabokov and his lushly intricate writing (Lolita only scratches the surface), I’ve come to really appreciate butterflies. You see, Nabokov was an accomplished lepidopterist—in other words, a butterfly scholar. The winged creatures flew through both his scientific and fiction writing, blurs of bright color and astonishing beauty. I’m no butterfly expert, but the…
DIY Lip Balm – you TOTALLY got this!

DIY Lip Balm – you TOTALLY got this!

As a lover of all things craft and beauty-related, making my own lip balm is the best thing I've ever done. You can customize the recipe in terms of consistency, moisturizing power and — my favorite — color. Seriously, what's not to love? After tons of experimenting and playing around, this recipe has become my absolute favorite. It's super moisturizing and glossy, without being…

The Lipstick League – week of 8.17.15

Question of the Week: What do you think of the current ‘90s revival in beauty and fashion? Answer: I like it. Bring on vintage coats, baby bangs and brown lips! But I worry that thin brows will come back in style right when I finally get mine grown out... Here's what happened with the League this week. Blushing Noir -…

Jordana Cosmetics Complete Cover 2-in-1 Concealer & Foundation swatches

Wanted: Good product at a great price. Slackers need not apply. Lately, I have been trying to do more with less. That means my beauty arsenal is being streamlined. My pretty-packaged “slackers” have been kicked to the curb. I have no time, energy or space for anything that does not do its job well. So, I am excited to tell…

Get accessorized in style with new pieces every month How well do you accessorize? If you’re anything like me, your daily pieces for a workday are the same basic two or three earring/necklace options. And on the weekend, there's very little accessorizing happening! I love jewelry, but on the weekend, I just don't have the time/energy to pick out the…
