Lipstick on the Rim: “Ask Us Anything” Beauty Edition with Molly and Emese – All Your Burning Questions Answered Plus Extra Product Recs (Because Why Not) Happy Almost V-Day!


When we did an “Ask Us Anything” episode back a few months ago we were pleasantly surprised by the response and how many of you loved this new installment. We thought we’d go back to our trusty Instagram audience and poll you all on your burning beauty questions, specifically. From the best eyelash curler to non-negotiables we get into it all. Plus, would it be a solo episode if we didn’t throw in some extra recommendations? Lastly! Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Just thought we’d wish you all a happy V-Day regardless of your relationship status. Don’t forget— love is all around.

[Molly] On Products For Long-Lasting Makeup

“This is a makeup recommendation for when you’re a bridesmaid at a wedding or need a long-lasting makeup look. I use the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer. It’s an award-winning, hydrating face primer with hyaluronic acid and it grips for 12+ hours. Sir John used it on me a few years ago at the Met Gala. It’s an incredible product and your makeup will not move. Another long-lasting makeup must-have was recommended to me by a makeup artist who was touching me up at an event. She told me the #1 product to use is the Mac Fix and Stay Over Alcohol-Free 16 Hour Setting Spray.” It’s phenomenal.”

[Emese] On Her Current Skin Non-Negotiables

“There are so many non-negotiable things for your skin that aren’t crazy expensive. I need to have the Bioderma Micellar Water on my counter at all times. It just takes everything off my face before I even cleanse. It’s the pregame for the cleansing.”

“Another one… because my under eyes are my sore spot: I have been using these DRMTLGY Brightening Eye Masks. I saw it in an Ad on Instagram and of course, I immediately ordered it on Amazon. I put them on every single morning and I have seen such a huge difference in my eyes. Within the first few days I saw such a big difference. I’ve also been using this Biologique Recherche Liposmose Serum. It’s a serum for anti-puffiness. It’s not expensive compared to their other products, and you can even get a smaller bottle that lasts. It’s like a watery serum that I put in the palm of my hand and I massage it around my eye area. People have literally asked me if I’ve done something to my eyes lately. That’s how much it’s impacted me.”
