Ok, on a normal day to day I’m really uptight about germs and such. Could be I’m a tiny bit obsessive compulsive because I’m constantly washing my hands. Now add Swine Flu into the factor and you’ll have the Muse running scared. With the absolute insanity of this super flu taking the nation by storm everyone is washing their hands alot more lately that’s for sure.
Sometimes you’re in a situation when you don’t have soap and water handy. On these days you can reach for some Anti-Bacterial Gel minus water and help kill 99.9% of common bacterias. Thank you Jebus for giving woman such an ingenious product.
If you work in New York (or any big city for that matter) chances are you’re surrounded by disgusting germs on the subway, at your office, etc…it’s always a good idea to have a some sort of Anti-Bacterial soap hanging around for stealthy ninja hand washing minus water on the go.
But why settle for the standard brand when you can indulge in over 20 scents of Bath and Body Works Anti-Bacterial Pocketbac Hand Sanitizer. These cute little travel friendly hand sanitizers cleanse hands instantly and are small enough stick in your makeup bag.
In scents like Coconut Lime Verbena, Nectarine Mint, and Midnight Pomergrante suddenly sanitizing my hands has become an interesting event.
How are you battling germs this season?
I’m heading to get my flu shot next week. Oh my god I so dread it as my arm always ends up feeling like it was punched the next day. WTH is that all about?
MAC you excel at so many things but why do you continue to fail in the mascara world. The Muse hasn’t yet met a mascara from MAC that she actually liked.
Your new MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara has one incredible factor about it but it doesn’t make up for the other woes it causes.
Jump ahead for my take.
King of Shaves is having an event today offering sidewalk shaves (for the guys among us no they will not shave your legs ladies!) and giving away free King of Shaves Azor razors.
It takes place today from 10am to 6pm on 23rd Street and Broadway. You can stop by for a visit with Diane Wood, Master Barber of King of Shaves, who will on hand to give the guys a clean shave. Diane is the barber who appeared on Letterman to remove his writer’s strike beard.
If you have an old blunt razor bring it along with you and Diane will happily give you a brand new Azor, other fun freebies will be available too!
In honor of their contributions to the city, King of Shaves will donate $5,000 to New York City Firemen through the Friends of Firefighters Organization.
The Azor is the latest razor launch from King of Shaves and is making it’s debut in New York City Duane Reade stores this month. The Azor has a unique design that allows the head to bend and flex around contours and curves of the face or in our case it’s ideal for behind our knees and around ankles for a friendlier, smoother shave. The ergonomic handle of the razor is made of only one part (compared to 13 on other brands) leaving zero waste behind providing for greener alternative to your shaving experience.
The Azor is available for purchase online but why not stop by and get one free hehe.
You never really think that a brand can go and take something you really love and make it into something even better. For example have you seen many movie sequels in your life that are actually good? I can only name a few.
Thus the idea of taking a product and re-releasing it with a new formula automatically makes a the Muse skeptical. How can it possibly be as awesome as the first round?
It’s possible. MAC Dazzleglass Creme is proof of that.
Take the jump for a sneak peek!
Here’s your guide to sales happening at your local drugstore this week.
Check ‘em after the jump.
You up for Musing a little MAC DSquared with me?ï¿½ How about a little sneak peek at the goods?
If you’re a happy New Yorker (I’m kidding New Yorker’s are not happy. We are miserable people with attitudes) you can haul your butt to Woodbury and indulge in killer deals at the Lancome Factory Store.
They have concealer, foundation, eye shadow, blush, and a slew of other goodies priced at 4 for $40 but that’s not the best sale.
The best sale?
As Seen by the Muse Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover on Sale for $15 bucks! Gasp! Score! Deal!
I happen to be too cheap to buy it for $26 dollars even though I’ve expressed my unquenchable lust and love for it over and over again. But two for the price of one? Ok, I’m in.
I snagged two for $30 bucks. Loves It!
They had plenty so if you head over this weekend you’ll probably snag some. I’m kinda thinking I should be greedy and go back for more.
Great deal if I do say so myself.
Here’s a round up of what you’ve been searching for on my blog, what incoming traffic has been searching for, and the most popular keywords you’re using to get the deets for your makeup fix.
Take the jump for the deets!
Yesterday was the official start of Fall and the Muse couldn’t be happier. As far as she’s concerned it’s the very best time of the year. Happy Fall Ya’ll now graces my front door and I can barely wait for Halloween.
I was feeling all Fall-like today so I cracked open my DuWop Crush Palette in 18 Karat. This was from the DuWop Summer Collection 2009 and I’m just now getting a chance to use it…sheesh talk about late to the game. The good news is the palette has a slew of Fall friendly shades in it.
Jump ahead for the deets!
The Muse feels it’s her responsibility as a Benefit girl to let you know that the Benefit Velvet Eye Shadow Collection has been updated with a new shade called, “I Cannes & I Will”.
This was a little hush, hush as Benefit didn’t really go full force into Fall as many brands do. You know Benefit they like to wow us with one major release at a time not entire color collections but just a single awesome item every month or so.
Loving Benefit Velvet Eye Shadow? If so take the jump for a peep at the new color!
Oh my god people.
Just heard the word over!
Listen up! Oh wait let me get my soap box….
You can trade in 500 Beauty Bank Points at Sephora and snag yourself a ridiculously gorgeous, obscenely free Kat Von D Exclusive Eye Shadow Palette. Can you say drool much?
Dudes, do you think this is some omen of things to come? Might Kat give us more of these sweet little color palettes soon?
Either way it’s yours free now at Sephora.
Go grab it before someone else hauls it. This is a perfect excuse for me to finally order the Urban Decay Book of Shadows II.
