Well, hello there! It’s Sunday morning here in my part of the world, and so far so good. The coffee that Mr. Beauty Junkies made didn’t taste too awful (it usually does), and I’m busy going through some AMAZING photos we took yesterday at IMATS LA. (The International Makeup Artist Trade Show.) Each year, this is a consumer-friendly event full of crazy deals and talent exhibitions that you really shouldn’t miss if you can help it. I have a post coming up about our experience at this year’s event this week, so more on that soon. But here’s your weekly dose of Lipstick League love!
OH! I almost forgot. Going forward, the weekly links will also feature the link to a post from a blog that a Lipstick Leaguer really liked for the week. Each week, a different Leaguer will choose a link we find from the web to share! That will be the last link on the list. Enjoy the additional read!
Question of the Week: What’s your current favorite hand cream?
Answer: Yikes! Sorry guys, I can’t pick just one, so I’m going to tell you a few that drive me wild. Yes, I just said “drive me wild” about HAND CREAM. I have these stashed on my desk, nightstand, and in my purse because of the amount of damage that swatching polishes does to my nails and hands. I probably apply hand cream once every 2 hours, and I wish I was joking, my hands soak it up like crazy. But here goes!
- AVEENO Positively Ageless Skin Strengthening Hand Cream
- J.R. Watkins Mango Hand Cream
- Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Hand Crème
