American Beauty Luxury Lids Eye Shadow Duo Review

It’s so VERY Fall. Wait, hold it.  Actually it feels like blooming Winter.  It’s cold.  But I’m in Fall mode regardless of the cold weather.  Fact is I wanted to go all festive Fall-like with my eye look this morning so I dragged out the American Beauty bits I got from the Summer Collection and proceeded to go to work.

Even though they are friendly Summer finds you can still them at Kohls.

Mally Beauty Perfect Prep Eye Primer Review

A while back ago when I first started blogging I moaned and whined alot about my under eye area.  The deal at the time was I had just turned 30 and suddenly I woke up and had all this insanity going on under my eyes.   My sister claims it’s some sort of law that once you hit 30 it all goes down hill.  Indeed, my eyes were heading that way fast.

A reader recommended that I try prepping with Clarins Instant Smooth which I did and didn’t really notice much difference.  The general idea was it would prep my eye and create a smooth canvas for concealer.

This idea is pretty much what Mally Beauty Perfect Prep Eye Primer is all about.

Check out the review for it below!

Pieces of Life: DOMO! Edition

Target Domo Halloween 1

The Muse briefly interrupts your regular cosmetic readings to show you some Domo pr0n!

DOMO!

Ok, actually there is a reason behind my Domo lovin’ post today. I got about 75 e-mails, a few tweets, and a comment or two after I tweeted a few pictures of my recent Domo Halloween haulings. Sinseriously Domo and Halloween? That’s like bringing together milk and chocolate chip cookies, the coolness knows no bounds.

Moral of the story is people NEEDED to know where to buy Domo! OMGZ It’s Domo, where can I gets him?

Target actually caters to the Domo fan girls almost every season. There’s Domo Halloween, Domo Easter, Domo Christmas, etc…..basically Domo does the Holidays at Target. Last year, Domo was a huge Halloween theme on Target but this year not so much as he’s been traded in for Skelanimals. I love me some Skelanimals but I actually prefer Domo.

Problem is when they introduced the Skelanimals they really pushed Domo aside and made it near impossible to find him. Here’s my suggestions for locating him at your local Target.

Brace yourself you may need to search a while. I went to four Targets without success. An online friend located in NJ found me Pumpkin and Devil Domo recently (thanks Tam, love ya lots). My friend Martin has been running around the city trying to locate poor Domo everywheres as well. We located Domo Dracula recently w00t, score!

Since Skelanimals are the main attraction I highly suggest looking outside the main Halloween display for Domo. I located Domo Dracula in a pile of Halloween stuffed toys at the 2nd aisle of the Halloween display on the very last shelf, pushed way to the back. After speaking with other Domo enthusiasts this has been the same experience for them. When all else fails I highly recommend asking a Target sales rep. Most of ‘em are friendly and about 80% of them seem to be hardcore Domo fans so they can point you in the right direction or break the bad news to you gently that Domo is sold out.

Finally when desperation sets in head to Evil-Bay and enjoy jacked up prices of Domo.

Hope this helps.

Happy Domo Halloween!

P.S. The non-Domo fans can disregard this public service announcement and yes we will hate all over you if you ask, “Who’s Domo?”

Feel free to chat about Domo in the comment box, I’m a listening!

UPDATE: Tammy has informed me Domo is also available at 7-Eleven.

Disclosure: The Muse purchased Domo with her own money. This is not an endorsement for Domo or a paid advertisement. Domo has his own money and endorsements and does not need the Muse to endorse him. The only thing endorsed here is my love of Domo and my eagerness to pass that love on.

Smashbox Holiday 2009: Smashbox Wish for the Perfect Pout Review and Swatches

I think I was in the 8th grade when I first started watching 90210 and that was only because Luke Perry was considered crazy hotness in the 90′s.  I do know that I never quite got fully “into” it but only watched it a few times because I believe at the time my mum deemed it too racy or some such nonsense.

Anyway.

Moral of the story is I started watching the revamp of 90210 last season because I was trying to relive some part of my youth I suppose.  Turns out the show is a train wreck that I haven’t been able to keep my eyes off of since.  It’s awful.  The actors are all annoying, the story plots are absurd, and it’s complete cheese whiz…but I continue to watch for some reason.

This is getting rather long but I’m telling you this because have you so noticed that they went all budget on the show?   Like what happened to the parents?  They cut them out almost completely.  And Kelly?  Practically gone.  And the great big Hollywood home…finished.  90210 is getting the economy treatment if ever I did see it.  Thank god CW hasn’t cut down on Supernatural otherwise someone would have to hear me whine about it.

SMASHBOX

You know what else is getting economized this year?  Makeup!  But unlike 90210 that’s a good deal as far as this Muse is concerned.
