Musings of the Day: Sooooooooooo Overrated!

My Musings of the Day was brought on suddenly after watching a video from FloridaSweety on youTube.

Please tell me you subscribe to her videos? No? Check it below and you’ll totally understand my obsession.


Is she hysterical or what? I absolutely adore how she starts out on one topic and starts flying off the handle from topic to topic. Absolutely adored when she stops mid sentence because her cell phone starts to ring and she goes off on a tangent about how she won’t pick it up.

Lord…youTube is the best.

Anyway.

The moral of the story is FloridaSweety was saying how overrated MAC is and I was wondering what brand or brands do you think are terribly overrated?

Click below for my answer!

musings

Ok, I probably have a few answers for this. Let’s see. I think NYX is big time overrated. They have alot of great stuff but the raves about how comparable they are to MAC…ummm overrated! One such example would be everyone comparing NYX shadows to MAC ummm again no I don’t think. Very nice shadows but not as good as MAC in my humblest.

It’s Monday so my brain is slow today and I’m only coming up with the one brand…so throw some my way!

Which brand or brands are completely overrated?

Tell the Muse!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess: Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick Review and Swatches

I simply love a lipstick that performs double duty and not only adds color to my lips but a nice glossy finish too. A lipstick and a gloss all in one formula is always a complete joy of a product for this Muse. Sad fact is so little brands embrace the idea enough!

But have no fear with the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Collection four shades of beautiful Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Sticks were released so you can get your lipstick and your gloss fix all in one product!

Likes it? Nope, Loves it!

This Summer, oh hell, let’s make it Spring…This Spring drench your lips in popping shades of color with a lipstick that has a beautiful shine, a glossy finish, and the power to plump your pout!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick is available in four shades. These beautiful lipsticks act as both a lipstick and a gloss.

The Muse has a thing for lipsticks that are moisturizing and leave a beautiful glossy finish to lips. This could stem from my gloss addiction or just the need for a quick application of lipstick minus gloss or maybe it’s me being generally lazy and just wanting to whip out my lipstick and not have to apply gloss on top. Anything that helps me get done fast is always the business!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick offers moisturizing pigmented color to lips and also creates fuller, plumper lips within four weeks of use, I’m not entirely sure if it’s working but at the very least it does make my lips fuller when it’s on. The color has a good long wear time and the shades released are all very flattering for Spring and especially Summer.

I tried out all four of the shades which were Nude Almond, Orange Poppy, Wild Plum, and Pop Pink. Pop Pink is a bright pink that could be dubbed fuchsia but it’s not like any wild shade of pink I tried before. In the tube it’s frightful but on the lips it’s quite inviting and pretty! Orange Poppy is a true orange shade which is flattering with bronzed or peach cheeks. Wild Plum is a plum shade with hints of lilac and a little hint of pink. And finally Nude Almond is a very natural shade of beige brown with a hint of golden shimmer. All four shades are very wearable and pretty for both Spring and Summer. The shades compliment the Bronze Goddess Collection, particularly when paired up with a bronze look!

All in all the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Sticks are well worth checking out and have a nice price tag of $18.50 USD each. The Muse enjoyed these and thinks they are worth swatching at your local counter.
