The Lipstick League: Week of 7/14/14

Lipstick league 2

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! This is the week of the 6th anniversary of Beauty Junkies Unite. Keep your eyes peeled here on the blog and on my social media accounts for special giveaways just for you! Now let’s take a look at this week’s links from my friends in The Lipstick League…

Question of the Week: Your friend borrows your makeup and returns it in awful condition. What do you do?

Answer: I would never loan mascara or eyeliner, so that’s out anyway. I have allowed only very, VERY good girlfriends to use my lipstick, and that’s been fine. (I dip in alcohol later to cleanse.) If someone broke a blush pan, nail polish, or foundation bottle, I’d just assume it was an accident and let it go. Over the years, I’ve kind of developed a “don’t expect to see back what you loan out” mentality. (I’m pretty selective about what I loan, and pretty much always receive everything back!) But makeup is a little different to me. If one of my really good girlfriends is in need of something I have (within reason), it’s okay with me if an accident happens. They’d probably offer to try to replace, and that gesture would be good enough for me. I love my makeup collection, but I treasure my friends more!

    Be-friend that person! haha jk But, I would think not much only cause I wouldn’t be lending out any makeup in the first place if it was expensive, and also for hygienic reasons. Unless that friend needed it for a special occasion, and a $50 palette was ruined then I would ask that they replace it. That’s too expensive to just get ruined. But, I give away makeup all the time to cousins and family If I find I don’t use that product much often. Has this ever happened to you Amber?

    I totally understand! I give away a lot of makeup. Unless it’s one of my fave limited editions or a basic item, I typically don’t loan. I agree on hygienic reasons, I’m kind of a germaphobe, but I have a few friends I trust with my life (that I’ve known for decades) and don’t mind if we share certain things. Most of the time, I give it to them anyway! I just have too much stuff :)
