The Lipstick League - week of 7.18.11



Question of the Week:

  • In some sort of cruel twist of fate, it's ruled that you can only wear one brand for the rest of your life - which do you choose?

If I had to choose one brand to wear for the rest of my life that brand would have to fit some criteria. A brand that has a foundation that I love, a large range that continues to change and add products, as well as a brand that is easily accessible to me and most people. For me when I add that all together I think I would have to pick Chanel. Chanel is not my favorite brand but it is in the top 5 of my favorite brands. Chanel is easily accessible, has a foundation I love, and it's range is constantly changing. Chanel is classic, I can create a look for work or easily change it up and create a look for a night out. I love Le Metier de Beaute and at first I thought that would be the brand I would choose, the only reason I didn't is because LMdB products sell out across the board and takes a while to get products in stock. For example I waited almost 5 months to get my foundation in stock. I love you LMdB but I can't wait 5 months for my foundation if I run out.

Now onto this weeks links...

Hmm I think I would pick Shu Uemura. I love their skincare, makeup (blushes, mascara, foundation), and hair products. The only problem would be the price haha and accessibility since they don't have counters anymore. Chanel sounds like a great brand with quality products and gorgeous packaging.

Love your new orange icon! Very fitting. I didn't want to pick a soup for mine because people might think it was a food blog... so I picked Boo, a Mario character LOL.
