Our fearless co-editor Stef is enjoying a little time with friends and family on the East Coast, so it’s up to me to share a little something with our Lipstick League readers. And you know what that means – cat pictures!
Behold Venus, the “split faced” cat that’s been making the internet rounds. What a stunner. As you can see, her sweet little face is split right down the middle between black fur and ginger tortoise shell. And check out the eyes – one blue and the other green. She’s Snopes verified and I predict a book and/or calendar contract for this kitty celeb soon. But for now, you can see more on her Facebook page.
Onto the League!
Question of the Week: Your three favorite haircare lines, name them…
Answer: Fekkai, Bumble & Bumble and Aveda
I have fine, straight, thin hair – so I really don’t use a lot of products (too much can weigh it down). I get my haircare kicks from shampoo and conditioners and these three brands make my very favorites. I’m always happy when I have a set of Fekkais’s Brilliant Glossing, Bumble & Bumble’s Thickening or Aveda’s Rosemary Mint shampoo and conditioner in my shower.
The best from around the League this week:
Lipglossiping – offers a juicy insight into the latest Jo Malone fragrance launch: Blackberry & Bay. Cream scones and tea with that?
Nouveau Cheap – My favorite makeup brush cleaner isn’t really a makeup brush cleaner at all (well, technically speaking).
Prime Beauty – loves what WEN Cleansing Conditioner does for her hair but not her wallet, so she’s found an affordable alternative in her latest Splurge vs. Steal!
Phyrra – is ready to battle again in Makeup Wars – Favorite Fall Nail Polish. See the best nail polish for Fall!
we heart this – has partnered with Sephora this week to bring you the colors of the season; Blackest Black, Nouveau Purple and Crimson Velvet. Check out these red lip picks for the prettiest pout around.
Beauty Junkies Unite – Get Amber’s official breakdown of the new READY Foundation SPF 20, a solid mineral foundation from bareMinerals!
Clumps of Mascara – has found the world’s most interesting eyeshadow quad. It’s quite reminiscent of alien aircraft!
Gouldylox Reviews – This lash curler actually fits the shape of my eye, perfectly. I didn’t know what I was missing by settling for my Shu.
Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Lipglossiping – My favourite post of the week comes in the form of this little number from A Touch of Blusher who has me craving the new Paul & Joe collection like a reformed smoker at a Marlboro convention.
Readers – are you staring at more pictures of Venus right now? Once you’re done, share with us your three fave haircare lines!
