That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 4.23.18
Question of the Week: What new nail colors are exciting you right now?
Answer: Have you ever felt like a nail polish collection was made especially for you? Let me tell you, it’s a good feeling! Those are the feels I get from the Cirque Colors Desert Bloom collection. The nine shades feature “glimmering shimmers and subtle speckles inspired by colors of the desert.” So, what I see everyday from my window.
The three that had to be mine are Pebble; black speckled creme nude, Wildflowers; dusty violet nail polish with copper shimmer and Palm Springs; pearlescent blue with pink shimmer.
Super impressed with these shades. The desert by way of Brooklyn (where Cirque is based.) Way to go, Cirque!
Here’s what was up with the League last week…
Beautygeeks – may go straight for a summer bronzer application instead of a Spring glow given the warm temperatures promised next week… did you know there’s a difference?
Blushing Noir – Lip gloss that shines, isn’t sticky and gives that plumping effect we all crave?! YES, PLEASE! Check out swatches of ALL 20 of the Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss.
EauMG – Oh, honey, do I have the perfume for you! That is if you like honey. The newest natural perfume from Hiram Green smells like gooey honey and beeswax.
My Beauty Bunny – has swatches and a review of the limited edition, cruelty free Cargo Havana Nights eyeshadow palette. The colors look bold in the pan, but how do they look when you swatch ’em?
Painted Ladies – Sheila shares the complete makeup breakdown from a recent glam night out featuring the Urban Decay Backtalk palette.
Phyrra – You’ll love these Affordable Cruelty-Free Makeup Dupes!
Prime Beauty – ColourPop is going on vacation and I’m packing their new Lux Lipsticks and Vacation Palette in my makeup bag and tagging along!
Realizing Beauty – Lacquered shine, a long wearing stain, and plumping hydration all in one lip product? That is exactly what Dior is offering with their new Dior Addict Lacquer Plump.
we heart this – We heart that Pixi appreciates influencers! So much so that they have another round of collaborations, including the warm and dreamy Pixi + Weylie Hoang Dimensional Eye Creator Kit.

Beautygeeks is Currently Craving: a $70 CAD/ $54 USD lippie and feeling ridiculous even thinking about such an expensive item that isn’t skincare. But have you seen the juicy and glamorous Tom Ford Lip Lacquer shades/finishes?
