That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 1.30.17

Question of the Week: Do you use micellar water? If so, when and how often do you use it?

Answer: Personally, I find micellar water to be a bunch of hooey. My skin never feels clean enough with them. So, give me cleanser or give me death!

Here’s what was up with The League last week…

fanserviced-b – After spending $6,000 on beauty in 2016, I resolved to clean up my act and try to get more joy out of purchases; here’s how I did in January.

My Beauty Bunny – A liquid lipstick that isn’t super drying? YES PLEASE! I’m swatching and reviewing the entire new collection of Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks!

Nouveau CheapMy new favorite perfume isn’t new at all, but it’s under $15, absolutely sublime, and I owe it all to a fellow Lipstick Leaguer!

Phyrra – I’ve finally found my perfect foundation for dry skin! See my in-depth review and wear test of Idun Minerals Norrsken Liquid Foundation.

Prime Beauty – is ooohing and ahhing over the new Smashbox Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Hour. These sunset hues will have you drooling!

we heart this – has the five things you should know about microblading (plus, before and after pics!)

Beautygeeks – has stopped to smell bright, youthful rose fragrances for Valentine’s Day. Bonus: a related martini recipe.

Blushing Noir – It’s a long road, finding that perfect, drugstore foundation when you REQUIRE full coverage but have oily skin. In this post I’ve shared 4 of my favorites plus a brand new makeup sponge that’s only $8 and is giving the beautyblender a run for it’s money!

EauMG – I sooo don’t get the point of Valentine’s Day but I will embrace any day that gives me an excuse to smell like roses and burn fancy candles. If you want an excuse to spoil yourself, check out my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide.

fanserviced-b is Currently Craving: I’m really curious about the Youth To The People Cleanser + Cream Youth Duo Mini set ($20); the ingredients look great and early reviews suggest these products are winners.

  1. @stef – I like micellar water as a “pre-cleans”. It does do a good job of getting the first layer of eye makeup off as well.

      SAME! Micellar water is great as a makeup remover before you fully wash your face. As an oily-skinned gal, I can’t use it as my only product, but it’s nice to have in the arsenal.

  2. Bioderma has a nice one.. I only use it with q-tips for around my eyes when removing messy make-up applications.
    I will say its makeup-removing is legit. I just feel I need to really wash my face with a good cleanser and a lot of splashing clean water.

  3. lipglossandspandex

    I’ve tried a few brands of micellar wipes and they were so so. I do like the micellar water in a bottle from Simple for removing makeup (I douse a cotton ball or pad), but I always follow up with a facial cleanser. My beauty routine is always makeup remover, followed by cleanser. I haven’t found a product that does both as much as I’d like.
