That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 5.2.16
Question of the Week: What was your last blind-buy (purchase made without seeing or testing beforehand) and how did it work for you?
Answer: Does a perfume discovery kit count? How about a discovery kit that already contains one of your top three favorite scents of all time? It’s kind of cheating, I know. But I wanted to gush about the Juliette Has A Gun discovery kit I got at Sephora for 18 measly bucks. I already adore Lady Vengeance, and I’m loving trying the other eight scents the kit includes (including Not A Perfume, a single note scent you can wear alone of mix with the others). LOVE this!
Here’s what was up with The League last week…

My Newest Addiction is Currently Craving: Hair is kind of a big deal and nobody understands that more than Jen Atkin, hairstylist for the Kardashian clan. Her line, called Ouai, is making big waves and Laura wants all of it after trying the Texturizing Hair Spray.
