Too Cool for School Max in Pocket Lip Balm

Too Cool for School Max in Pocket Lip Balm

This week the Lipstick League is insisting we tell all: What beauty products did you buy during Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday? I'll spill if you will...

I don't usually do much – or any beauty shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but this year there were some inexpensive sets from brands I want to play in, so I bought the following:

From Sephora, a Murad Ultimate Hydration DuoLaura Mercier Layer Up Caviar Eye Stick Collection (I know, I rarely wear eyeshadow, but someone commented under in a past post that they're great crayons, so I couldn't resist this set... which is sold out now); Origins Cult Favourites (for a specific item to appear in a later post); Too Cool for School Max in Pocket Lip Balm (too darned cute and I'm totally keeping it for myself); Peter Thomas Roth Skin Savers (still on sale); and another item I'm giving to someone else.

And from I snagged a cute Ultrasonic Oil Diffuser on a flash deal; more on that soon.

Here's what the Lipstick League is talking about right now
