The Lipstick League — week of 8.8.11


Remember that bloggy vacay I told you about last week? Well, it’s been postponed until next week! You’ll have a few new posts in the coming days—of pretty, shiny things. Here’s your question of the week and link love from your Lipstick League!

Question of the Week: What perfume can bring back memories with just one sniff?

Answer: For me, it would have to be Estee Lauder Beautiful. I wore it obsessively in high school, and even just seeing the bottle on a Lauder counter as I’m walking by—it totally takes me back. What about you?


Pink Sith – has swatches of two of the new NARS Night Series Nail Polishes. One conjures memories of a 1980′s rock song and the other, a 1980′s TV show. Find out which is which!

Phyrra – shares a new sensitive skin serum, Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit Seed Oil!

Prime Beauty – has a fabulous Splurge vs. Steal for us this week. Find out what foundation is a dupe for Napoleon Perdis Advanced Mineral Makeup and costs 4 times less!

we heart this – finds out that Jo Malone candles are as fabulous as their fragrances. Especially these David Hicks designed ones!

Beauty Junkies Unite – What’s British, colorful, and sold exclusively at Sephora in the U.S.? Check out nails inc., which just launched Thursday!

Clumps of Mascara – is absolutely in love with purple lips. Think you could rock ‘em?

EauMG – reviews an indie perfume from Arcana that smells like blackberry jam.

Lipglossiping – ditches her beloved black eyeliners for softer greys when she takes a closer look at Estee Lauder’s latest collection!

Nouveau Cheap – shows you the entire Wet n Wild On the Prowl Collection. For a Halloween nail polish collection, this one’s full of the unexpected!

    I guess it would be Obsession which I cannot stand now. But I used it every day pretty much and went through lots of bottles of it before switching. I was asked to switch by the folks I worked with in a hospital lab – when I hung my lab coat up for the night in the closet for them – everyone of he guy scientists would say their coats smelled like Obsession!
