Smashbox Reign Collection Price Cut

Whoa dudes. The Smashbox Reign Collection is on sale at Sephora already. It’s not really a sale I guess but it is a price cut. Pretty incredible considering that we are just now stepping into Fall.

I do so admit I was smitten with this collection but did feel like it was a teeny tiny bit expensive upon first release so maybe this could prove a good thing especially if you’ve wanted to haul but felt a little fear at those prices.

Here’s the deets.

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Double Balmstick and Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Shinestick

More news on the Victoria’s Secret cosmetic front with the introduction of two new Beauty Rush items.  You know they place those bins of Beauty Rush products at the registers for a reason.  They are meant to tempt and tease you into dropping $10 or $15 more bucks when you weren’t planning on it.   Two new Victoria’s Secret Beauty items are coming at you in those evil bins and each looks quite interesting to this Muse.

The first is the Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Shinestick priced at 2 for $12 or 5 for $20 (Mix and Match with other Beauty Rush bits).   This little lip treat is available in six shades and promises a glossy pout with a hint of color.  Count me curious and wanting to haul, let’s just hope it doesn’t turn out to be glorified chapstick.

Next up is the new Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Double Balmstick also available in six shades for the same price as the Glossy Shinestick.  This one is a peppermint balm for lips with a soothing aloe center.  This interests me the least as I’d prefer a bit of tint and gloss to my lips and not up for a splurging on a balm.

What’s the good word?

Think you might haul either?

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Cosmetic have been known to be a yay for me so I’m thinking two of those Glossy Shinesticks might end up in my cart.

Pretty exciting and impressive considering it seems like December is ages away but in reality it’s never to early to get shopping done early now is it?

I’ve already introduced you to all of the offerings from Urban Decay Holiday 2009 and today I’ll be bringing you some swatches and a review of one of their newest palettes for the season entitled Show Pony Shadow Box. It’s fierce peeps, you so needs one.

Musings of the Day: Your Worst or Funniest Makeup Counter Experiences

The Muse is fond of biatchin’ herself a blue streak when it comes to terrible customer service but thankfully she always gets great makeup time at her fav counters at Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Saks. I’ve always had the pleasure of being treated beautifully well at counters that I purchase from. However, I do choose to deal with the same reps over and over again which could account for the good service I get as they know my likes, they know I’m out to spend some money, and they just know a bit about me and who I am.

On occasion I’ve been known to run into a rep or two who is snotty or not helpful or just plain rude.
