The Lipstick League – week of 6.17.13

Let’s play Guess the Palette! This pretty palette is the ONLY one I’m packing to go on my trip to Connecticut next week. Kind of a BFD considering how much makeup I pack for trips. But it beautifully covers all my bases, so no need for any others. See if you can guess it with these clues:
• just released
• based on a fashion designer’s pieces
• it also contains a mascara
Leave your guesses in the comments!

Question of the Week: What are your favorite perfumes to wear in the summer?

    Favorite summer perfumes–anything light and sparkly, with tea/ grassy/vegetal notes. One of my favorites is Memory of Kindness by CB I Hate Perfume–it has the spicy, green scent of tomato vines and freshly turned dirt. I also will do Demeter’s Wet Garden–which, true to its name, smells of flowers/greenery drenched in dew.

    Oh, those palette colors look amazing! My favorite “dress” fragrance for summer (and all year long) is Nina Ricci’s “L’Air du Temps.” It is sublime. I do believe Heaven must smell like Creed’s “Love in White” (when I can afford it). I also enjoy Marc Jacobs’ “Daisy Eau So Fresh” and Anna Sui’s “Fairydance.”
