You know Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes was so not enough. We absolutely now need in our lives Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Effet Extension Mascara. You know…bigger, better, more awesome lashes……loves it right?
For Fall, Givenchy has released their brand new improved formula in four shades for the risque mascara user who likes to bat color lashes at the world. Ok, if you’re boring you can bat your black lashes at the world (it comes in black too!).
Jump ahead for a peep at the new Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Effet Extension.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to mattify your skin. Indeed, you don’t want your friend using your shiny forehead to apply lipstick do you? Around this time of the year the Muse drops to her knees in thanks as her oily forehead begins to dry up thanks to the cooler weather.
But fact of the matter is, it’s been a rather hot few days and I’m back to my ever oily forehead. So not cool.
Been testing out The Body Shop Matte It Skin Primer this week to see if it can combat the shine.
Jump ahead for a peep!
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.
