The Illusion of Hollywood, A Non Cosmetic Blog

There is, in my humblest, lowly opinion, such a thing, as taking too many liberties.

This be a perfect example:

Your thoughts?

Perhaps I’m too much of a purist to give this it’s proper dues (Am I the only one that finds it deeply disturbing they choose an American actress to portray Jane freaking Austen! The height of blasphemy! How did England let us get away with this?!?!? I believe the BBC even had a doing in this! My god the world must be coming to an end I say!)!

Appeasing Your Hunger for Japanese Cosmetics Part 1: An Introduction

‘ello girlies (and guys)!

I had quite a few questions in regards to “OH MY GOD WHERE CAN I GET JAPANESE COSMETICS!!!!!!!?”

The Muse has some gorgeous friends in her life that do her shopping for her! Without these lovely people in her life she’d be quite remiss of Japanese goodies in her train case! My god the HORROR! *insert scared, terrified looking face here*

Sometimes busy schedules also means that they are unable to get me my little bits and ship them over icon sad (I say “little bits” so it makes me appear less obsessed than I actually I am teehee!)

When these horrible things occur the Muse must search, search, search for alternative ways of locating her Japanese crack…errr…I mean Japanese cosmetics!

Our very own, gorgeous Fleck has some great hints, tips, and general tricks for obtaining what she wants! She’s passed some great ideas off to the Muse about where to locate good cosmetics to satisfy her lemmings! Do visit her reviews on MUA! They are my bible when purchasing!

The Muse also has her own toolbox of locating interesting little bits and pieces to appease the insatiable hunger for Japanese cosmetics!

Finding decently priced Japanese cosmetics is a difficult job my friends but with a little hard work you can find somewhat good priced deals here and there icon wink

This will entry will be in several parts which will also include a video blog to go along with it! I hope it helps satisfy your lemmings for great cosmetics!

Halloween Arrives Early at Cherriflip

Cherriflip has sent out it’s monthly newsletter with it’s new Halloween goodies and the Muse is getting quite a case of the excited wriggles!

The goodies available for Halloween are 4 new bubble bars and 7 new gorgeous scents that you can have in any number of bath goodies, shower gels, perfumes, etc..!

One of the bubble bars entitled Blue Meanie is cute and sweet but it’s also a contest! One of the bars was made wth orange eyes and if you happen to get that bubble bar in your order (these are randomly selected) you could win your entire purchase free of charge! Yay how exciting!

Some of the new Halloween Themed Bubble Bars:

If you are unfamiliar with bubble bars I’ll explain icon wink Bubble Bars are a solid form of bubble bath! You take these very cute bars and crumble them under warm running water while your bath fills! Swish your hand around a bit and you get masses of lovely bubbles in your tub! Not only do they smell amazing but they moisturize wonderfully!

The New Halloween Scent List:

Screaming Banshee: You will be screaming with delight with this divine salty yet sweet caramel ice cream scent. Hints of soft toasted peanuts, rich vanilla, and sugary sweet caramel ice cream make this the ultimate decadent sweet treat.

Spooky Juice: Bright and crisp concoction of fresh guava, airy cucumber and soft pear. Spooky juice is a refreshing light treat.

Dark Enchantment: A bewitching sophisticated blend of deep black amber and vanilla bean blended with lavender. Dark enchantment is a deliciously addictive scent.

Voodoo Doll: Wickedly wild and refreshing wasabi sniff. Walk on the wild side with a little wasabi voodoo!

Taboo: warm caramel cream with just a touch of cocoa and vanilla meringue, and a hint of praline essence

BOOkies: Sweet caramel pumpkin cream essence infused in a warm cookie crumble base.

The Vanishing: A delicious banana blended with ripe, fresh fruit mallow cream. Fresh banana slowly vanishes to reveal light berries, citrus and marshmallow cream. This is one disappearing act you don’t want to miss.

The Muse would love to place an order but first she must firgure out the riddle that Cherriflip has teasingly put in their newsletter:

My life can be measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick
Fat, I am slow
Wind is my foe.
What am I?

If I can firgure it out I’ll receive an extra 15% off my entire order! Any ideas? I’m stuck icon wink If you do happen to firgure out the one word answer you can use that word in the coupon box to get the discount off your order!

Cherriflip is one of my favorite online shops for not only wonderful Bath Goodies and Bodycare but cosmetics as well! Do check out the entire Halloween line up!

Happy Haunting..err..I mean Shopping!
