That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 10.9.17
Question of the Week: Mascara, lipstick, eye shadow: you have to eliminate one from your routine FOREVER. Which would you chose?
Answer: I do not like having to make this decision one bit! But I’m going to be methodical about it. No way the answer is lipstick. I’d break the rules and be in beauty jail within a day. And I can’t imagine a world of plain eyelids. What a boring place that would be! So, although the thought of naked lashes is tough, I gotta say mascara. I could always do some tightlining to beef them up, or get eyelash extensions.
By the way, that’s Revlon Dramatic Definition mascara, Surrat Beauty eyeshadow in Chinchilla and MAC lipstick in Diva.
Phew! That was hard…Here’s what the League was up to last week.
