Ok, so yes I do have an obsession with quality concealer. I’ve tried so many concealers over the course of the year it’s grown from a simple obsession to a rather sick, twisted NEED to try something new. I’m always on the hunt for thee perfect concealer, the concealer that will change my life, the concealer that will end my woes of dark circles and puffy eyes forever.
Could that concealer be the new La Mer The Radiant Concealer?
At $65 this has to be the concealer that will create flawless coverage under my eyes, erase my dark circles, conceal my puffy eyes, erase my fine lines….yes…this one has to be it.
Available in three shades the treatment cream concealer optically corrects dark circles and blemishes to create a flawless finish. It instantly evens out the skin appearance while adding radiance. Gemstones capture light energy to camouflage dark circles and precious marine plant extracts help to reduce the appearance of under eye puffiness by the way it also has an SPF 25.
I’m not worthy La Mer.
I need this in my life, like now, like yesterday.
Expect some sort of review soon as I can’t control the need to snag me some of this. My excitement knows no bounds.
Available now from La Mer.
Oh Justin’s bringing back all kinds of sexy with the new Givenchy fragrance for men, PLAY.

For what seems like a very long time I’ve fallen out with many of my beloved Japanese cosmetic collections. If you’re a collector or fan or Japanese cosmetics you probably know what I mean as it’s been a rather long, hard road of reruns and repetitive products and colors.
This year I’m actually quite excited to finally haul some new products from some of my favorite Japanese brands that have captured my interest.
Jump ahead to hear the Muse’s Wish List for Japanese Collections 2009.
Although my love affair is not nearly over with T’estimo, I have gotten used to the idea of Coffret D’Or. One thing I am excited about is the release of sixteen shades of Coffret D’Or Eye Shadows Singles. These shadows all look quite exciting to me and carry an inexpensive price tag so indulging in a few won’t break my bank.
It’s been a while since Lunasol really caught my interest. As beautiful as many of the pieces are, I admit that the price does put me off every so slightly. However, cost aside this year’s Lunasol Star Shower Eyes have me in fits of joy. I see at least three color combinations I’ll be hauling!
KATE almost always has my heart and it hasn’t been so long since my last haul from the brand. Kate Reflect Mirror Eyes look positively delightful with three shades of shadow for a contrasting, sparkling eye look!
And finally Lavshuca Light Mix Eyes garnered some of my attention as these are a tad different from what Lavshuca has been pulling off lately. Although the color selection is pretty the same ho-hum shades, I still feel they may be worthy of a pick up.
Overall, Japanese Fall is looking up this year. Although many of the shades and products have been done before a few items did warrant a further look and since I do feel ever so slightly excited about these releases I think, finally after a long, dry spell, I’ll be indulging in quite alot of Japan’s Fall cosmetic offerings.
How about you?
