Girls with Attitude LipZing Review

Oooooooo come on baby make it hurt so good! Girls with Attitude LipZing has the zest and spice for making it hurt so good? Not sure if it’s good or not or maybe it’s “oh my god take me to the emergency room my lips feel like they are on fyreeeees!”


Girls With Attitude LipZing is an instant Plumping Gloss that’s a mere 5 so the Muse said “hey, something cheaper than Lip Venom! Let’s have a go!”

When I was deciding I’d have a go at LipZing I didn’t realize that the go might be me flying out my bathroom window and burying my lips and face into the nearest pile of cold snow! Ouchie this stuff stings!!

All the promises on the back of the box of achieving that Hollywood glamour lip look def does not make up for the fact that this stuff seriously tingles, stings and creates a rather uncomfortable feeling on my lips plus it’s freaking bitter as all hell if I happen to get a taste of it when licking my lips…well hello it’s on my lips I’m going to taste it sooner or later can’t we at least make it a pleasant experience when I do? K, thanks to the team at Girls with Attitude! And seriously if I’m going to burn my lips off when it’s applied can’t we at least make it a strawberry or watermelon type experience? Maybe the flavor will sooth the fire!

I really adore DuWop Lip Venom and although their are tears of absolute agony whenever my sister uses it I absolutely love it and never experienced the terribly stinging sensation she proclaims on and on about. Until now the only lip plumping gloss I’ve tried that worked is in fact lip venom but lord knows the award should go to LipZing! LipZing definately plumps no question about it! My lips were looking quite Amanda Lepore like…I was channeling my inner tranny girl with this stuff. I’m thinking that I can’t blame the formula so much as the irritation. Those crazy chicks with attitude probably created this so it would actually irritate the lip area and in turn that would cause all the swelling and plumping up! Hello hurtful!

My lower bottom lip was sticking out like it was in a permanent pout and hells knows I was loving the look but honestly the promise of a “gentle pleasant tingling sensation” (or so the box says) is NOT happening. Taking into consideration I’m not in the least sensitive this one is going on my do not buy again list.

If you’re dying to experience the pleasure pain of Girls with Attitude LipZing shop it at Asos. But don’t say I didn’t worn you!

What’s your fav lip plumper?

Pieces of Life: The Hello Kitty Edition

hk

Damn, that bloody kitty! She’s popping up everywhere lately isn’t she? I’m speaking of Miss Hello Kitty of course!

With the introduction of the MAC Hello Kitty Collection the entire world is being reintroduced to every one’s favorite cat again! The Muse loves the fact that everyone is embracing Hello Kitty and loving all over her.

Actually since we are all feeling the love for Miss Kitty this Spring how about banking with HK herself?

Jump ahead for the deets!

If you happen to have an account with Bank of America you can sign up for their new program called My Expressions Banking.

My Expressions Banking is simply a gimmicky deal that allows you to embrace the unique side of your personality while banking. Who the hell knows why banks deem it necessary to make your banking more personal with debit cards that feature cats, dogs, and any other array of items that suit your personality! But hey I am so NOT complaining as I am loving the My Expressions Banking Hello Kitty Edition.

hello+kitty

Basically the program simply works by taking your old ugly blue and silver debit card and replacing it with a pink and white Hello Kitty debit card! Oh my god the cuteness may make me hurl! But not only does your debit card change you’ll also get checks featuring Hello Kitty and your monthly paper statement (if you get one in the mail) will be printed on Hello Kitty stationary! How awesome is that?

Sincerely, can I embrace my inner 6 year old kid with these options? I love that my bank card sports Hello Kitty! For the Muse it’s the equivalent of a black American Express Card.

I actually don’t get monthly paper statements as I do my banking online but I was too curious to see these Hello Kitty statements so I switched back to paper for a month and was oddly delighted to see Miss Kitty making an appearance on my banking statement…lord things can’t get any cuter!

If you’re a Bank of America customer you can call up and have your current debit card switched over to My Expressions Banking right now. Believe me if you’re an HK fan you’re so gonna wanna do this. And hey if Bank of America tanks at least you’ll have a cute debit card that’s virtually useless! Yay!

Click to make the switch from blah banking to Hello Kittified banking!

Stila Convertible Mascara Review

Is it terribly weird that while I was testing out Stila Convertible Color Mascara I was thinking of convertibles and the Hoff?


I dunno what it is but convertibles just remind me of that catchy little ditty by David….I hear he’s big in Japan.

car

Stila Convertible color is embracing the crazy tube technology that’s taking the mascara world by storm at the moment. Not fibers kids but tubes!

The unique polymer formula encases puny lashes in a tiny smudge-proof, water-proof “tube” that binds each lash and offers longer, defined lashes that can take on the world and the Hoff if worst comes to worst without flaking, smudging, or creating terrorizing raccoon eyes!

Stila+Converible+Mascara+1

Stila+Converible+Mascara+2

Stila+Converible+Mascara+3

I don’t claim to know why Stila dubs everything with convertible lately but the Muse likes to think they too were thinking of the Hoff and his hawt car when creating this mascara. The Stila Convertible Mascara is a dual-ended brush that works at offering volume to both top lashes and lower lashes for that no lash left behind feeling (our x-President would be pride I’m sure!).

Stila+Converible+Mascara+4

Stila+Converible+Mascara+6

I generally like the idea of a double ended wand that performs separately to lengthen my top and lower lashes. Considering that each brush is made specifically for separate functions I somehow wish that all my mascaras sported a similar feature as I always have a hell of a hard time getting to those naughty lower lashes without causing a hot mess. The upper lash applicator is a nice size brush that grasps lashes quite well and sweeps them upwards and outwards while the secondary lower lash applicator is thinner in size and has a straight line for snagging those hard to reach lashes.

Stila+Converible+Mascara+8

Stila+Converible+Mascara+9

The mascara isn’t particularly wow inspiring. It does volumize and it does offer length but it’s nothing too dramatic. I recommend it for anyone that doesn’t like the irritating feeling of fiber based mascaras as this is a nice light weight formula that will offer good volume to puny lashes without weighting them down or making them feel “hard”. For me personally tube mascaras are probably thee most awesome find considering how much I hate the feeling of fiber mascaras.

This offers plenty of bells and whistles such as being smudge-proof and water resistant while offering definition, length, and volume but I can’t help but feel the overall effect wasn’t particularly amazing. I’m not too big a fan of a more natural lash look and this is exactly the finished result that Stila Convertible Mascara offers.

All in all quite a nice product but I prefer L’Oreal Double Extend Mascara as it’s cheaper and offers more of a dramatic result than this did. It was worth testing out just so I could compare “convertible mascara” to David’s popular “Get Into My Car” song. Bless that man.

Philosopopy Apricots & Cream Shower Gel Set

The Muse is terribly fond of reminding everyone how Philosophy has really improved on it’s 3-in-1 Shower Gels as of late….I can’t be the only one that feels this way right?

But of course their newest QVC Exclusive has me wanting to sample it as the idea of Apricots and Cream sounds heavenly!

philosophy+apricots+%26+cream

This three piece kit contains large sizes (24oz chubby bottle) of the newest Philosophy scent Apricots and Cream. You’ll get Philosophy 3-in-1 Shower Gel, Philosophy Body Lotion, and Philosophy Lip Shine all in the brand new scent for the perfect fruity sweet layering experience!

Philosophy+Apricots+and+Cream+3

The price of the kit is $48.06 USD. Each 24oz shower gel normally prices at $20 USD so you aren’t really saving a ton of money by buying the kit. If you’re purchasing each item separate the total cost would be $50 USD plus tax and in this case with shipping and tax it comes to nearly $60 USD. Honestly, the only thing you are getting is the limited edition products and exclusivity of the kit although we all know sooner or later these things have a way of popping up on Sephora. Taking cost into consideration, although I really want to try out the shower gel I have no need of another lotion or lipshine so I think I’ll wait to see if Philosophy Shower Gel in Apricots and Cream ends up at Sephora sometime soon!

If you absolutely need it now look up item number A90250 at QVC.

Want it?

Tell the Muse!
