That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 12.7.15
Question of the Week: What one beauty item would you really love to receive this holiday season?
Answer: Santa, I have been SO good this year! If you could bring me the Jo Malone Cologne Intense Collection ($150) I promise to be good for all of next year too. I will also make a deal to be good most of next year for the lesser priced Velvet Rose & Oud Dry Body Oil ($75). I got to sample all of these at the Grand Central Terminal Jo Malone store in October and fell in love.
Here’s what happened with the League this week…
Blushing Noir – Neutral for days! The MAC x Ellie Goulding Collection was made with me in mind – even though it’s all about that Ellie.

Nouveau Cheap – It’s the most wonderful time of the year for drugstore makeup lovers…if you live near a CVS! The semi-annual Beauty Clearance Sale is back, which means tons of makeup for 50%-75% off.
