The Lipstick League: Week of 10/29/12


This week’s Lipstick League post is dedicated to all of our friends on the east coast who are working hard to pull their communities back together after hurricane Sandy. You are truly an inspiration! xo

Want to help? Don’t forget, you can text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund!

Question of the Week: Do you get excited when you finish a beauty product?

Answer: I wouldn’t say that I get excited, but I do become impressed and consider buying another—because finishing an entire product can be hard for me. I guess you can say I have product ADD! I get distracted really easily, so it’s rare that I finish a cosmetic product. (But I do finish a lot of skincare and haircare.) The last I finished was a Dr. Jart BB cream, and I did buy another because it’s holy grail status for me. Products that I don’t finish usually find their way into loving homes with good friends!

By the way…
