Golly, the Muse kinda misses Sugar Cosmetics. They sure did have some fab finds in my humble opinion. Like those awesome baked blushes! Remember those?
If you haven’t quite gotten your Sugar fix on allow me to give you the chance on the cheap. We like cheap don’t we?
Snag a limited amount of Sugar Cosmetics for .99 cents on the Sugar website. They are pretty much clearing it all up at this point and it’s just a small amount of goodies but none the less it’s a buck….a buck is a buck right?
Check it, these bits are worthy of your change.
I snagged a few of the Plump It Up Glosses and other bits to stick in my little cousin’s Christmas stocking…ok, ok…I admit I also grabbed one or two for me.

Mmm now THIS I can get on board with.
This being the new MAC Baroque Boudoir Collection releasing this coming November. Honestly it makes me want to save my pennies and skip MAC Holiday 2009 Magic, Mirth, and Mischief and just haul hard in November.
This has a certain Dita Von Teese feel about it doesn’t it?
Can’t wait to see the full images.
To haul or not to haul?
The Balm AutoBalm Set totally appeals too bad the Muse has much of what’s in it. Set your beauty regime on auto pilot with some fab minis from the Balm all hooked up in a cute little makeup bag for…check it….$19.50!
The set includes mini sizes of all the following products:
- the Balm Hot Mama
- the Balm Plump Your Pucker In Cocoa My Coconut
- the Balm balmShelter
- the Balm Stainiac in Beauty Queen
See? Automatically beautiful on the cheap.
Available at Sephora.
Lordie I don’t think I’ve blogged the joys of VOV Castledrew Eye Shadow yet. How remiss of me not to introduce you to these tiny little pots of funky color that are so absurdly inexpensive you won’t believe it.
VOV is a Korean brand with a slew of cute little finds that are incredibly inexpensive but manage to pack alot of quality. Like most Korean brands it’s all the quality at a fraction of the cost. If you’re having a lem or two after my post I suggest checking out E-bay to see what deals are hanging out.
Jump ahead to learn more about these cute singles.
Ahhh days of old. The Muse loves reliving her youth and remembering really bad makeup choices and drugstore purchases gone horribly wrong.
I remember Sea Breaze which was the equivalent to deep skin diving with a cotton ball. I swear that stuff removed oil, dirt, skin, and all. It dried me out like the Sahara Desert but lord knows it sure dug deep. Am I alone in my twisted love for this stuff? Granted I’d never use now thanks to being in the know about alcohol and dry skin but back than it was incredible.
Bonnie Bell Lip Smackers! Totally where my pokemon, collect ’em all disease originated from. I had to HAVE all the flavors when I was like 11 or 12. I remember for Christmas my sister would always stuff my stocking with the 100 pack….remember those packs of a million? I was all kinds of cool for having that many flavors.
Hmmm…..let’s see…..there are more I’m sure of it.
Oh yes! Nozema! Actually it’s still an old age favorite around these parts and has a prominent space on my shower shelf. I slather it on like nobody’s biz while I’m doing my thing in the shower. All that stinging has to mean it’s deep cleaning right? No seriously I love this stuff.
How about you?
What are some of your old school favs?
I’m ever hopeful some of you are as old as me and can kick back and remember the good old days of wacky skincare and makeup finds.
