The Weekend Beauty Shopper

I’m away this weekend but I do believe taking a second out of my busy schedule to type up this Weekend’s Steals and Deals is always in order!

Don’t you agree?

This weekend the Muse recommends heading over to Sasa for your beauty crack! Lots to be had on sale over at Sasa and Free Shipping too on orders of $50 or more!

Some of the Steals and Deals to be had at Sasa:

Bourjois Maxi Frange Maximum Length And Volume Mascara This mascara comes with the Muse’s highest recommendation and at $10.90 it also comes cheap! This retails for $19 at Sephora so you’ll be saving yourself $9! Yay!

Lavshuca Single Eyeshadows are $8.80

Majolica Majorca eyeshadows are available for $8 Sadly colors are extremely limited but if you have a hardcore lemming these are a pretty ok deal! They aren’t jacked up too much price wise compared to the original price of $5 or so each Japan side!

If I were you and I was in a bit of a shopping mood I’d click my mouse over to Drugstore.com and take advantage of the sale they have!

$5 off $30 plus free shipping

or

$10 off $50 plus free shipping

Drugstore.com is also having a Buy 1 Get 1 Free Sale which can be combined with the above deals (You’ll find a few goodies in this sale! Rimmel Mascara, Neutrogena Face Soap, Etc…)! Wahoooooo savings all around!

Might the Muse recommend THIS for your cart?

Macy’s likes us to be happy shoppers so they are offering a free deluxe sample of Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake 3 in 1 Shower Gel with a 2 product Philosophy purchase!

Since you’re at Macy’s anyway you might want to check out the Estee Lauder counter and score Free Shipping if you purchase $50 in products! Use coupon code LAUDERAUG to take advantage of Free Shipping!

If you’re lemming the Mystery Game Collection now might be a good time to get it and get something free! Lancome is offering a free sample duo with any purchase! The duo includes Definicils High Definition Mascara and Bi-facil Eye Makeup Remover (The Muse uses this and recommends it for eye makeup removal).

That’s it for this Weekend’s Beauty Steals and Deals! Enjoy your weekend! Happy Labor Day (and Happy Shopping at all the Labor Day Sales!)

Heartpounding Hair Gel!

Dontcha love when celebs pimp themselves out to Japanese couture, cosmetics, and other adverts?

Now by far the best commercial I’ve had the pleasure of seeing is freaking Orlando Bloom acting all secret agent like in a hair gel commercial for Shiseido. My dear, dear friends please do have a tissue ready as drooling may occur!

Head on over to Eru’s blog Cuteness Junkie Girl to see this heart pounding, drool worthy, yummmmmmmmie commercial! I guarantee it’s worth five minutes of your time to view!

Maybe we should all write to Hollywood and beg them to make Orlando the next Bond…….Hmmmm Jeeves bring me some paper and a pen! Oh wait…isn’t it the Queen that decides who the next Bond will be? Hmmm best write to them both!

And by the way Orlando can whisper “Fiber Neo” in my ear as he strokes my arm, kisses my neck, and….oh excuse me…I was fantasizing aloud!

Either way if anyone has questions, needs a review, or close up pictures of products do go right ahead and message me, comment here, or e-mail and I’ll gladly provide you with a mountain of info in regards to Urban Decay!

I don’t only whore myself to MAC you know icon wink Urban Decay was my original crack! hehe!

Lush Cosmetic’s Newest Haircare Line Up

Lush has always had a good solid haircare line! You’ve heard me babble some about the shampoo bars already but Lush also carries other shampoos and conditioners that I swear by as well!

I was happy to hear that Lush will be expanding it’s haircare line and introducing not only new haircare but some styling items as well! This is a big step for Lush as they have had no prior styling products to boast of prior to these! I’m very curious how they will turn out!

First up is Curly Wurly! Hmmm good news for the Muse as her hair is wavy and full of curls!

Lush’s description of Curly Wurly Shampoo:

fluff

This thick and rich marvel is so unlike any other shampoo that your hair will think itís discovered a parallel universe, one where curls soften, relax and shine on command. Amazingly enough, we make it all happen without preservatives! Coconut butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter and jojoba oil control curls, weigh the hair down and smooth hair follicles. Shredded coconut aids in application and synthetic polymers are replaced by free-range eggs while lemons and papaya add extra cleansing and shine. Available early October.

Next up a new conditioner of sorts entitled Jasmine & Henna Fluff Eaze! The name alone sold it for the Muse. Anything that contains the word “fluff” in it makes me want it all the more!

Lush description for this new Fluffy product:

fluffye

Jasmine & Henna Fluff Eaze makes really fluffy hair smooth and encourages normal hair to behave. Henna infusion adds loads of shine and moisture, but it wonít change your color (even if itís color-treated). Brazil nut oil and olive oil add even more shine, calm fluffiness and give control to the ends without taking all the life out of it. Youíll find this hair treatment detangles, stops static and helps prevent your hair from tying itself in knots. Whatís more, the effects last for weeks! Best of all, the lovely scent of jasmine wafts around you like moonlit evenings in a Moroccan garden. Available early October.

Now these have the Muse intrigued! All natural hair gels!

The Big Tease

productpic4

The Big Tease can stand your hair straight up without feeling brittle — all with a texture a bit like glue (but in a good way). Itís loaded with natural, good-for-your-hair ingredients like glycerin for softer texture and cupuaÁu butter (pronounced: coo-poo-a-soo) from the Amazon rainforest. This acts a bit like lanolin, which means excellent conditioning thatís all vegan! Youíll be delighted when you sniff this gel too. It has the same refreshing (and very popular) fragrance as The Olive Branch shower gel, with orange flower, lemon and bergamot. Tease it high! Available early October

Goth Juice

productpic5

Fans of The Mighty Boosh (a British cult comedy TV show) will be aware that real Goth Juice is made with the tears of Robert Smith. (Thatís why itís purple.) If you have no idea what weíre talking about, thatís cool, just take it from us that our Goth Juice is a medium-strength gel to hold and style your hair without drying it out. Glycerin, hemp and flaxseed oils nurture, strengthen and in general, take good care of your hair — even when they join forces to double the size of your head. It has a beautiful, dark green-forest scent of oakmoss and olibanum. Available early October.

Holy cow the Muse definately wants this! She loves the Mighty Boosh and dare ye all who question her about it and know not of it’s origins! Off with your bloody heads for not being exposed to bloody brilliant britcom! Sadly this is also an earthy blend which means maybe the name and concept sounds brilliant but the general idea of oakmoss and other green bits aren’t what the Muse prefers her hair to smell like! Le sigh! How very depressing that Goth Juice doesn’t smell fruity!

And lastly in the hair management department….

King of Mods

productpic6

This soft-hold gel takes soft, fluffy hair, controls it and makes it look cool. It shines hair, moisturizes it and holds it softly in place no matter the adventure. Like Mods themselves, itís controlled but not hard. Itís also good for your scalp with eight percent almond oil and camellia oil (the one that Sumo wrestlers use to keep their long, black hair shiny). King of the Mods is perfumed with grapefruit and lime essential oils to wake you up in the morning and revive you for an after-work party (think Swinging London of the Ď60s). Party on! Available early October.

Overall looks like a nice little line up of additions to Lush’s already supremely awesome haircare line! I want to try the gels for sure and Curly Wurly is definately going to end up in my cart!

Reviews to come when I buy some of these bits and pieces!

MAC Stylistics Color Collection

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

It appears MAC has quite a gorgeous collection in the works for us this Holiday season! Rumors are abound and everywhere the Muse looks some new information is popping up about the latest “It” collection from MAC!

This could have the potential to be HUGE, as in the best collection I’ve seen released from MAC in quite a while!

The collection won’t be out until November 29th but it hasn’t stopped the spread of rumors, speculation, and general chitchat about this exciting limited edition color story!

Here’s what the Muse has gleaned so far from her travels through cyberspace:

Check out Beyond Beauty Basics for an interesting little article about the collection!

Not only is there a new Holiday color story to look forward to but a limited edition fragrance entitled Air of Style that will be released as well! From what I’m reading the scent will be extremely limited and once it’s gone it’s gone!

The total collection is gem encrusted so these should be some pretty gorgeous compacts ala MAC Couture from last year! Which brings up another topic! I am wondering if this is similar to Couture’s release last year. Couture was released something in November I believe and than soon after Formal Black popped up! I’m wandering if Stylistics is merely a tease and prelude to the real Holiday color story! We shall see!

Some interesting little photos of what could possibly be part of the collection have cropped up!

MACFALL

The moral of the story is save your pennies because come November you’ll be flat broke after purchasing some of this collection! I’m already shaking in my designer flats!

My very tiny collection of MAC Couture from last year:
