Would You Buy It? La Mer Holiday 2009 Gifts

La Mer Holiday Collection 2009 19121

Dear Santa,

I read somewhere that J-Lo smears La Mer Moisturizer all over her body like it doesn’t cost crazy money. So this year I’d love it very much if you could maybe help me win the lotto as I want to be just like J-Lo when I grow up as I’m all about smearing La Mer all over my body and hey since it’s lottery money I’d smear my dog in it too and get a few gifts to throw at family and friends.

k, thanks.

Love,
the Muse

P.S. If you heard anything about me being naughty this year, that’s bull, I am always SO nice, for serious, I am.

P.S.S. By the way I WILL tell the Missus all about you kissing mommy under the mistletoe if La Mer fails to be found under my tree.

Jump for the La Mer Holiday 2009 Gift Collection and tell the Muse, Would you buy it?

Lorac Lip Polish Review and Swatches

I’m probably totally dating myself here, I hate when I do that, but I remember the first time I experienced Lorac Lip Polish. It was a few years back, I’m saying 8 years maybe 9. They had a gift set that was called Star something? And it included a single Lip Polish and a Lorac Cheek Stain. Now I got my hands on it and was excited as all hecks but was pretty disappointed after trying it out. Note to self, Lorac Cheek Stain, not good. Turns out I was far from impressed with the entire kit, no good.

So…

I hit up the Lorac VIP sale and took note the Lorac Lip Polish were on sale for $4.99 and I thought well hey there I can try you again at that price. I proceeded to plop one in my cart…soon after I ended up ordering four more!

Etsy Musings: Beautiful Twists Vegan Lip Conditioner

All this gushing about Ella Dean in my latest Muse’s Gift Guide has me wanting to review her newest offering Vampire Dentist’s Toothpaste for Your Lips aka Vegan Lip Conditioner. Now most times Ella’s popular Lip Conditioners come in a balm much like a chapstick but she now has this new style which is sort of a liquid glossy lip conditioner, loves it! As much as I love the balms I must say this is even better yet.

Check my review after the jump!

mark Mist Opportunity Review

Hey peeps!

What’s up? It’s terribly cold and rainy today in New York. I swear Fall just left us quite suddenly and I do believe it’s kinda full on winter. The rain feels like little drops of ice, yak! Not a fun feeling but that’s New York, Winter is our specialty.

This is the time of the year when my skin begins to resemble a raisin in the sun so I really need to do double duty with the prepping and priming and moisturizing, etc…etc…On that note I thought I’d interest you in a little find from mark.

I hear you guys when you talk and I know you’d like to see a few cheaper reviews thrown in here and there. I do realize when I review cheaper stuff it’s always not a raving review because the Muse does so believe you get what you pay for. But on occasion cool stuff slips into my grasp that doesn’t cost me alot and does work.

mark Mist Opportunity would be such an item!

Jump for the review!
