That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 3.13.17
Question of the Week: You’re going on a trip. Tell us what beauty products you bring in your carry-on (3oz or less, remember!)
Answer: Well, what do you know? I AM going on a trip! (Follow @weheartthisdotcom on Instagram to see pics from my Icelandic adventure.)
Shown above are the beauty products that made it into my carry-on to help with hydration and to redo my makeup prior to landing. I had to have a killer lip balm (Embryolisse) and eye drops to banish redness (Rohto Redness Relief) As well as these key items:
• RMS Ultimate Makeup Remover wipes with coconut oil to refresh and moisturize
• January Labs Restorative Tonic Mist for inflight calming and bacteria-fighting
• Viseart Theory Palette in Cashmere; my legit desert island eye shadow palette
• Kevyn Aucoin Ariana Blush; perhaps the prettiest blush known to mankind
Side note: how much do you love the woman on the 5,000 Krona note? Now that’s a hat!
Here’s what was up with the League last week…
we heart this – Plagued with pimples? We’ve got 3 simple steps to get rid of acne (and none of them involve buying new beauty products!)
Beautygeeks – has a sneak peek at (plus a bad case of #grabbyhands over the new Maybelline Hot Vivid Lip Gloss collection launching this summer!
Blushing Noir – You can have all the best products in beauty, but if your brushes suck you can bet your look will suffer the consequences. Check out 10 Brushes from EcoTools that prove high quality makeup tools don’t have to be expensive OR hard to find.
EauMG – Please remind me to stop sampling expensive perfumes. I can’t afford to keep falling in love with niche perfumes (like this one from Neela Vermeire Creations).
fanserviced-b – I tried Charlotte Tilbury’s $22 Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask and it did not go very well, to say the least.
Gouldylox – Looking for the perfect vacation makeup? This sweet little collection has everything you need for a simple, beautiful vacay look and it’s on sale right now.
My Beauty Bunny – Can’t stop won’t stop trying new highlighters! NARS released a limited edition Banc de Sable highlighter palette and I’m letting you know what I think.
Prime Beauty – After a long winter, bring a pop of spring color to your life with Milk Makeup’s Eye Pigments! They are vibrant, long lasting and deliver a dose of color in one swipe!
