The Lipstick League Question of the Week

What are your favorite perfumes or scented body products to wear in the fall?

G's answer: I usually lean toward my heavier, richer, deeper fragrances for fall but for some odd reason, right now I'm all about muguet (aka: lily of the valley). I can't get enough of that clean, floral note and I'm actually going to be doing a post this week about my all-time favorite budget-friendly lily of the valley fragrances. If you're a muguet lover, I promise that I can hook you up without breaking the bank!

Spotted: eos Holiday 2014 Limited Edition Rachel Roy Lip Balm Set (NEW FLAVORS)

Did you know that eos has collaborated with fashion designer Rachel Roy on some limited edition lip balms? I had no idea this was even happening, so my thanks go out to reader Karmen (@imkarmenmartinez on Instagram) for this tip! Karmen spotted the Holiday 2014 Rachel Roy Set at Rite Aid this week and was nice enough to share pics and info with us. Take a look:

eos Holiday 2014 Limited Edition Rachel Roy Lip Balm Trio
(retail: $9.99 at Rite Aid)

There are three limited edition flavors in this set:

  • St. Barth's Sunrise (pink grapefruit)
  • Aloha Hawaii (strawberry kiwi)
  • Indian Summer (orange blossom)

Every time eos does these limited edition sets, there's always one flavor in particular that really gets to me. This time around, it's Indian Summer. Aaaah, I need an orange blossom lip balm in my life!

And guess what? There's one MORE eos Rachel Roy lip balm coming our way. Keep reading for a peek...

Many thanks to several of you on social media for the heads-up about this one!

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette
(retail: $34; now $16)

Did you know that the Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette is now $16 (originally $34) on the Ulta website, Sephora website and Urban Decay website? Also, the Mrs. Mia Wallace Nail Color is now $5 (originally $15) on the Urban Decay website.

For swatches, check out Phyrra's review HERE. She also did a lovely eye look using the Pulp Fiction Palette HERE.

I'm a huge fan of Pulp Fiction. I actually saw it five times in the movie theater (twice in one day) when it debuted in 1994 and I quoted it constantly for a period I like to call my "Pulp Fiction years."

"You, flock of seagulls, you know why we're here?"

So yeah, I've been wanting this palette since UD originally released it a few months ago and I don't think I can resist at this price! Do you already own the Pulp Fiction Palette? If so, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to let me know about the reduced price!

What Is Reverse Hair Washing and Is It Right for You?

Several months ago, one of you tweeted me some info about Reverse Washing (if that was you, please comment below so I can thank you properly!). I found the whole idea of conditioning your hair first, then shampooing, to be absolutely intriguing.

I had never heard of Reverse Washing before (NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE SAME THING AS CO-WASHING, which is when you use conditioner instead of shampoo), but according to Google, Reverse Washing has been around for quite some time. I tried it shortly after I received that tweet and I have been doing it off and on ever since. If you'd like to hear about my experiences, as well as why this might be a good fit for YOU, keep reading!
