You may be asking yourself “Just what is this fabulous Lipstick League loaded with links from some of the biggest beauty blogs on the web?” You’re wise to be curious…
The weekly link list was developed by Stef from we heart this and G. from Nouveau Cheap during a brainstorm/chit chat about how the two friends could promote each other’s hard work in a symbiotic, kumbaya fashion.
As fellow bloggers were invited and joined the forming group, the founders realized they were creating more than just a link list. They were creating something powerful. Like, a super power kind-of powerful. And so the Lipstick League was born.
You may also be asking yourself “Beauty bloggers with super powers? Isn’t that far-fetched?” We’d argue no. Not only do these bloggers take their trade very seriously, they’ve been featured in some of the largest publications around (both in print and online) and reach over one million viewers per month combined.
Sounds like a super power to us…
