Givenchy Parad’Eyes Fluid Eye Liner Poetique Lavender Review and Swatches

So the Muse is busy trying to take on liquid liner again. She hasn’t perfected her technique yet but she’s trying hard. In my bid to become a pro liquid liner I’m testing out the new Givenchy Parad’Eyes Fluid Eye Liner. I’m thinking in order to perfect the perfect cat eye I need expensive, posh, $27 dollar liquid liner. What better one to give a whirl than Givenchy’s? Right?

I know the mentality behind my cosmetic Musings even baffles me.

WANT IT: Kat Von D Solid Perfume Ring

The Muse never woke up one morning and though, “Gee, I really want to smell like Kat Von D!” but she admits it’s coming to that now. I don’t watch L.A. Ink and I’m not planning on getting ink myself…something about needles that terrify me…but I still find myself stalking everything Kat Von D does with her color cosmetic line and now her brand new fragrance line.

Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer Review and Swatches

It was a pretty crummy Summer around this little city.  Rain almost every weekend, kinda chilly and damp.   I’m still in shock it’s nearly Fall now and really if you’re not officially counting I’d say that New York has already stepped right into the season within a flash of Labor Day being over.

Me?

I adore Fall but I’m so not ready for it.  I’m still re-living my days of Summer especially cosmetic wise.   I can’t just let go of Summer quite yet which is why I’m still enjoying Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer.   The good news is that little touches of Summer are pretty flattering seasonal shades for Fall.  The soft peachy glow of a bronzer will keep your face looking like you just stepped out of the sun but still manages to create an ethereal warmth that can only be associated with the falling leaves.

Jump ahead for a review, some swatches, and a babble or two.

Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl Inspired Collection At Target

Anna Suis Gossip Girl Inspired Collection At Target 6 300x247

The Cut has all the deets on Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl Inspired Collection available at Target shortly.

The line will be in stores and online from September 13 to October 17th so one assumes it’s a limited edition line up but chances are you’ll catch it at your local Target’s clearance wrack if the Muse has anything to say about it.  Consisting of nineteen looks inspired by several of our favorite Gossip Girl characters, the line does leave a little bit to be desired in my eyes.

Gossip from The Cut says that Target Executives can’t handle the heat and aren’t wanting to associate the collection with Gossip Girl as the series is just a little too racy.  Ahem…you think?   But boy do I adore all that countless acts of badness,  makes me want to be a mean girl too!

No worries big wig execs the Muse finds the entire line very innocent and girlish nothing I see here would S and B even think about wearing to bed never mind out on the streets of the Upper West Side.

As for this Muse I’m unsure if Anna Sui has even seen the likes of Gossip Girl prior to slapping this collection together.  So not feeling the love and thinking it’s more drab than fab at this point.  It’s ok, I wasn’t really wanting to take on the world of Gossip Girl fashion anyway.

Here’s a few images from the line but a peep at the various looks at The Cut and let me know what you think.

Musings of the Day: Friends or Foe?

Hey chicas!

How’s Monday treating you? My Monday has been a nightmare. It’s a busy time at work plus I’m kinda feeling my way around WordPress at the moment. You may have noticed some of our comments got lost in the move on older posts.

Sad sigh.

So sorry about that as we’ve had some bloody good blatter in the last few years haven’t we? Oh well guess we’ll just have to make some new memories together.

Why don’t we start out those memories with a new Musings for today!

Today’s Musings is a favorite topic of mine since I get asked the question alot. Are my friends as into makeup as I am?

Big junkies?

Maybe they are more into it than you are?

Tell the Muse all about it and jump ahead for my answer.
