The Lipstick League – week of 8.12.13

vintage bar signA perfectly weathered sign I encountered a few weeks ago…

Question of the Week: – How did you arrive at your current eyebrow shape? Were you born with those brows, did you get them professionally shaped or did you shape them yourself? And are you happy with them?

Answer: I arrived at my current shape through too much plucking! I’d kill for my old, full brows. MUFE Aqua Brow is my savior though, filling them in as naturally as possible, apart from a eye brow transplant.

Here’s what happened with the League this week…

Nouveau Cheap – Wet n Wild just released three new eyeshadow trios and a line of textured nail polishes. Have you seen them yet? If not, take a peek!

Pink Sith – says the Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer is like therapy in a bottle for her troubled skin. Plus, bonus sad walking away music from The Incredible Hulk!

Prime Beauty – has the 411 on the new butter LONDON Rock Your Colour Bespoke Colour Cosmetics Collection and it’s bright and beautiful!

Clumps of Mascara – Okay, so it isn’t exactly beauty related but if you’re living the gluten-free and dairy-free life or just want a fresh and delicious salad, check out the recipe for this one.

EauMG – is high on perfume this week (it’s OK, she’s in Washington state). Here’s EauMG’s guide to marijuana perfumes. These unusual perfumes contain a cannabis accord or are inspired by the substance. Don’t walk on the grass. Wear it.

Gouldylox Reviews – Curious if the Marc Jacobs line is worth the hype? I’ve got pictures, swatches and details!

Lipglossiping – feels the mercury rising with this spicy little number from Glitter Gal Cosmetics. Guaranteed to get you hot under the collar!

    My brows in their natural state are pretty full and I get horrid unibrow. I tweeze them myself, but have a horrible habit of forgetting which leads to marathon tweezing sessions. I would like to try getting them threaded since it looks so neat and quick.

    Unfortunately I’m Asian and for some of us we have sparse light caterpillar brows. I have been shaping and filling in my brows for years so I kind of have it down to a science. Although sometimes the shape falls due to maintenance tweezing only (the space between the brow and eye lid) and not maintaining the shape.

    I have sort of a natural shaped brows. But, they require a lot of cleanup. I have to wax and pluck. I dream of low maintenance brows. #extrabrowhairgoaway

    I’ve gone through many eyebrow phases… I go a little crazy with the tweezers, it ends up wonky, and then try to “fix” it. Thank goodness for brow powder, and little scissors. I hate my brows sometimes (I would totally have a unibrow), but I’ve finally wrangled them into something I can live with haha. I’ve never had them professionally done, I’ve always just done them myself. I kind of modeled them after all the gorgeous brows on beauty bloggers!

    My eyebrows are always my natural shape–I just tweeze the hairs sticking way out above, below, and between my brows.
    I need a fuller brow or I feel naked.
