Sephora Atomic Volume Mascara

When you’re on a small island and the only makeup around can be found at duty-free shopping you’ll be wow’ed by anything.

Which just happens to be the case for the Muse when she seen L’oreal’s Telescopic Mascara.

I was somewhat impressed with L’oreal’s Telescopic Mascara when I seen it in a duty-free shop in Grand Turk. Although I was tempted I didn’t indulge as I’ve been burned one too many times by drugstore brand mascaras.

I love my MJ Mascara too much to cheat but I do feel tempted by Sephora’s Atomic Volume Mascara!

I’m always on the hunt for fuller lashes and this new mascara from Sephora quite reminds me of L’oreal’s version which is all good as I haven’t been as disappointed with Sephora branded makeup as I have with drugstore brands!

It’s on my wish list and I’m sure you’ll see a review soonish!

This is available now from Sephora for $16 USD.

Count me tempted.

Want it?

Laura Mercier Flawless Face Kit

lauramercier

I’ve wanted to try a few of Laura Mercier’s products for a long time now and how convenient that Sephora has a prepackaged Flawless Face Kit available for $65 USD!

Most of the times within the new kit are items I’ve been really tempted by and wanting to try.

The kit includes:
1 oz Foundation Primer
1 oz Tinted Moisturizer
0.21 oz Undercover Pot
A Secret Camouflage Brush
A Camouflage Powder Brush
A makeup sponge and puff

Although the price makes me wince I’m still indulging. The products are awful small but I figure in the long run they’ll save me a ton of cash on the large sizes!

This seems like the perfect little Summer must have for a flawless, unmade-up face that’s both natural and gorgeous!

I just ordered it so expect a Yay or a Nay soonish!

Have this?

Love Laura Mercier?

Guess Who’s Back?

Hello World!

Miss me much?

I know I missed you!

Obviously a few days away from the beauty blogging world is way too much as I see brand new collections, semi-annual sales, Fall Collections, new MAC color stories (Yes, I did indulge and I know you’re gagging to hear about it! Review to come!) and tons of other great stuff!

My fingers are eager to start typing (and sharing) away about all the items I’ve come across and heard about!

How are you all? It appears you’re all alive and kicking as I have over 80 comments to get through! Thanks for all the well wishes on my trip! Appreciate them greatly! It’s going to take me a little time but I promise to respond to each one individually! I noticed many of you commented on my Dior vs YSL post and I’m eager to dive into that discussion shortly!

I’m great and well rested and relaxed after a wonderful and amazing holiday! Yay! My cruise was absolutely fabulous and I’m thinking that maybe I need an extra month more to get back into the grove of work, life, and everything else but ado reality is knocking on my door and it’s back to real life!

A HUGE hello and thanks to a very special couple of friends the Muse made while on her cruise! I was lucky enough to meet a beautiful couple (who may just be reading this) during my time away so a big thanks to them for making my vacation extra special!

What about everyone else?

What have you been up to?

Any new lemmings?

Any new purchases?

Eager for the Japanese Fall Collections?

Tell the Muse all about it!

Comment box is open and available! It seems like years since I’ve talked to each of you!

Before I leave I’ll give you some details on what to expect in the new few days from your dear, old Muse!

Upcoming:

A review on Philosophy’s newest cleanser….hmmmm exciting eh?
Reviews and FOTD’s from MAC’s hot new color stories including Cool Heat!
News on Korean and Japanese Fall Collections
Reviews on Japanese Summer Collections (Long over do aren’t I?)
and much, much more……….!

Sadly, I didn’t overindulge in duty-free shopping as truly I didn’t find anything that I didn’t already own or could find cheaper here. I can never understand all the hype about duty-free shopping as it’s sincerely not that fantastic!

However, I do have many a fine trick up my sleeve for the week and you won’t be without your daily dose of Musings from this Muse!

The Muse now needs to unpack…..*groan* Wanna help?

The Muse is leaving on a jet plane….well…not a jet plane but a cruise ship! It’s almost the same thing anyway right?

I’ll be away from from June 2nd until June 14th. Umm yea totally screwed up on the dates duh…June 4th to June 14th…ahhhh that’s better!

I’m not bringing any geeky gadgets while I’m away…no cell phone….no powerbook….etc…

Which sadly means no blogging for 12 days! I doubt you’ll miss me as much as I’ll miss you!

While I’m away you can amuse yourself with some of my past posts!

Bon Voyage!
