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….
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.
Le Sigh….Missing you Pout and your brilliant blushes too! I’ll always remember you which is why you deserved your own feature in Beauty Blast from the Past!
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!
Although the Muse wasn’t the biggest supporter or fan of the MAC Hello Kitty Collection she does so admit that one of thee best items released with the collection were the awesome shades of MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner released with the color story!
Her fav of the two shades released? Jump ahead to find out!
Since I purchased MAC Tinted Lip Condition in Popster it hasn’t seen the outside of my purse. I carry it everywhere! It’s the perfect combo of pink, peach, and coral. Such a warm lovely shade that brightens up any of my looks and is perfect for on the go touch ups!
Can we please have it in a stick? I hate sticking my fingers in the pot! Aside from that Popster isn’t leaving my purse anytime soon!
Kenzo returns to nature with a new collection of three delicate floral notes, Eaux de Felurs, featuring three separate flowers, picked from Japanese trees to evoke a trail of gorgeous scent!
If you’re looking for a perfectly airy, fresh floral blend that’s light and cheerful for Spring the Muse highly recommends trying out Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk. This fragrance is part of a three piece collection inspired by the beautiful flowers of Japan. Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk is soft floral blend with hints of a fruity dominate base. If you’re not partial to floral perfumes this would be one to try as it’s fruity base softens the floral and morphs it into a very crisp, light Spring scent that’s sure to please. Kenzo describes it as a silk flower that flutters gently in the breeze and indeed that’s a good description as it has an element of airiness as one would experience when the cool wind of Spring is blowing and only the barest hint of floral can be caught and sniffed on the breeze. The sweet fruity notes keep the floral fresh and clean making the fragrance incredibly easy and flattering to wear!
Although it’s an Eau de Toilette it manages to linger nicely and give off a soft throw that’s very pleasant and quite long wearing. If you like softer blends that smell clean and light with hints of both floral and fruit and a bit of peony this would be something you’d love.
Also released for Spring are Eau de Fleur de Magnolia and Eau de Fleur de the Tea. All three fragrances are available for a very limited time from Kenzo so if you’re wanting to spice up your Spring wardrobe with a brand new scent these are sure to please.
Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk is available now from Kenzo and is Muse Approved for purchase. It’s an incredibly beautiful scent to shake off the long Winter and get you in the mood for Spring!
