The new Trish McEvoy The All About The Eyes Collection has me every so slightly puzzled. After a brief trip to my local counter count me even more confused than when I started out.
The new collection features a few new shadows with the promise of sparkle and shimmer but are so very subdued and are even part of the general catalog?
Count me confuddled!
When you’re a beauty junkie you’re almost always guaranteed to run across one or many products that promise you the world. Flawless skin, perfect skin, enhanced, HD ready skin, smooth finishes, moisturizing formulas, and one of my personal favs, long wearing formulas.
I can always refresh my lipstick and lipgloss. It doesn’t bother me in the least to re-apply. Granted I’d love something that didn’t only wear long but also wore all day but it’s not irritating doing a re-ap of my lip products.
My eyeshadow is virtually bullet proof thanks to Urban Decay Primer Potion so really I don’t need to bother myself with it at all.
Mmm blush normally sticks around well enough however like lipstick or gloss I’d love for it to stay all day but again I’m not bothered in the least.
My pet peeves?
Concealer and foundation. If I can find myself a concealer and a foundation that wears ALL day without moving, migrating, fading, or oxidizing I’d be a happy Muse indeed.
Jump ahead to hear my latest find for stupid long wearing concealer.
You’re simply gagging to own a MAC 224 so you can get in on all that window wiping motion blending that everyone else is up on. But…you really can’t afford to shell out $28 bucks GASP!
You get yourself a Sonia Kashuk Blending Brush for $3.99 at Target and call it a day dude.
Ok, I’ll be the first one to admit I have way too many facial mists in my beauty arsenal. Anyone? Raise your hand slowly, no reason to rush into your confession.
Do you hoard away facial mists? Denial is futile.

Who better than the pioneers in the HD makeup world to create a new HD Blush. Make Up For Ever HD Blush is the newest edition to the HD family of products from MUFE and it’s coming atcha soon.
What do you think?
Ready for the world of HD blush?
Not sure what I think. I’m not too keen on cream blush and even less so on a liquid form of blush. But we’ll see….could turn into something special!
They say Spring is a time of renewal. A rebirth of sorts isn’t it? The damp chill of the Winter is greeted with warmth, flowers begin to bloom again, the chill and darkness of Winter is suddenly erased, eased even with new hope and a new beginning. What better time for the 10th to be reborn and the 11th to grace us with his presence.
The trailer for Doctor Who appeared this weekend on BBC for those within the UK and if you were privy to it already, lucky you, if not here it is, in all it’s 65 second glory.
I’m chugging my way through the MAC Spring Colour Forecast Collection. Phew, it’s a big one isn’t it? What have you hauled so far?
Today I have swatches of MAC Spring Colour Forecast 3 for you plus a review.
Peeping into the mail bag today I got a few requests and questions on the Bihada Ichizoku items I’ve been reviewing.
Kelly from Washington writes,
I really like your reviews on Bihada Ichizoku. My friend was telling me that cosmetics are also available with this range but I only see you reviewing the skincare. Is it true? Are there cosmetics?
If you heard about this can you do a review of these items too?
As I was titling this post I happened to make the mistake of typing, “MAC 3D Glitzy Glamour Gloss” doh! I can’t help but associate the new Milani 3D Glitzy Glamour Gloss with dear old MAC Dazzleglass.
Jump for the cheap girl’s dupe to Dazzleglass.
I have a thing for lemons. I really like the tart scent of a lemon. It’s a little fruity, a hint of sweetness, but for the most part it’s tart and shiny. I likey the tart part!
Jump ahead to hear about the Skin Food Lemon Pack Wash Off Mask.
Well, Philosophy is still busy exploring it’s cosmetic options, this time with a brand new concealer!
