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?
Micellar water is basically my jam. I use it every single morning and evening – sometimes instead of washing my face with a cleanser! I love trying out new ones, and I recently bought the Pacifica Cactus Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic. What I love about this stuff – and all micellar waters for that matter – is that it gently and easily removes dirt, oil, impurities, and makeup without unpleasant rubbing or even rinsing! This Pacifica micellar water is infused with cactus, which has a long history as a skin toner, hydrator and anti-aging combatant. Plus, just look at this packaging! It’s so pretty and looks adorable on my bathroom counter.

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 Cheap – My 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; the ingredients look great and early reviews suggest these products are winners.
