Musings of the Day: Returns!

FloridaSweety is back with a brand new video about the best way to return items at a store! I posted one of her videos previously and it got a great response as I think everyone enjoyed her as much as I did. She’s always a great inspiration to get a good conversation flowing so this morning’s Musings is all about returns!


So how do you feel about returning makeup? Do you return it or just give it to friends if you can’t use it?

The Muse isn’t as assertive as FloridaSweety sadly so most times anything I hate ends up in the bottom of my closet in the beauty graveyard. I’m also really bad with receipts and keeping them, I throw them to the bottom of my purse and end up losing them etc….Sometimes I feel comfortable returning at Sephora but most times I don’t as everyone is terribly snotty about returns. Did you every notice what a hissy fit people have at counters and Sephora when you have to do a return? Even with a receipt they get all evil and snotty! Or is that me? This is one reason I absolutely adore shopping on Sephora’s website as it’s free return postage back and no one questions you about what was wrong with the product or gives you an attitude problem about returning it.

I really never could understand why employees get so upset about returns. It’s always a rather big deal whenever I return something and five different people have to come over and look at the item, the receipt, etc….

How about you?

Are you a “return queen”?

Do you avoid returning items?

Tell the Muse!

Beauty Blast from the Past: Pout Beauty Rouge

Pout+Beauty+Rouge+22

My inner Brit misses Pout Beauty so very much! Sigh. Especially the Pout Rouge! Those were such a seriously great product!

Why, oh, why did the entire line get flushed? I miss it so!

Available in some great popping shades Pout Beauty Rouge was truly a fab product. Pigmented, silky smooth with a satin finish it gave cheeks a healthy pop of color. It’s one of my favorite blushes and I can’t help but think what a terrible shame it was when Pout went under! The entire line was so fresh and girlish. The rouges came in large compacts with a full mirror and plenty of product for the price.

Laura Geller Baked To Go Balance N Brighten Foundation

Laura+Geller+3

Laura Geller Baked To Go Balance N Brighten Foundation, yeah well I can’t help but think of how comical the name is here.

Baked..to go? Are we on the same wave length here?

Meet Laura Geller Baked To Go Balance N Brighten Foundation and no it’s not that kind of baked but hey the name can’t be beat. Thanks Laura I’m already breaking out my munchies!

The concept behind this intrigues me. What is it: A portable complexion compact of color-correcting powder that helps to create a smooth, flawless look.

Who is it for: All skin tones and types. It’s a mineral oil, paraben-free formula meant to create a radiant glow on skin all while evening out skin tone, ruddiness, and brighten up dullness. Ohhhh likey! Let’s get baked together!

Instead of the traditional loose powder this actually houses an entire sphere of baked foundation that you swirl a sponge over and apply! Cool right? I was so thrilled with getting baked I ordered myself one….!

I’ve never been a big believer in the original formula of this as it just seemed a glorified foundation powder that was baked (I really like saying baked teehee!) but this version has captured my interest, must be my inner geek that’s loving the gadgetry behind it all!
