Hard Candy Lite Bright Whipped Brightening Concealer ($6) is a new whipped click pen concealer that launched for Fall/Winter 2012. Hardy Candy markets the formula as an illuminating concealer to brighten eyes and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
I’m a complete concealer h0r so of course I had to get my hands on this as soon as humanly possible. After a variety of trips to the evil empire Walmart I was finally able to track this down. Believe me heading to Walmart more than once is like removing teeth from my mouth without anesthetic, god help me. But for concealer I was willing to do it.
Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara is a new volumizing mascara that offers a clump free finish. I’m not sure I really have issues with clumps…don’t get me wrong there are mascaras that clump occasionally but I blame the formula or applicator not necessarily my lashes. That’s not to say that clumping isn’t an issue some folks experience, in that case you might be seeking out a formula that will offer you a clump free finish.
On top of not having issues with clumps I wasn’t terribly excited to try Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara. I have not come across a single mascara from the Lashblast Collection that I actually like. For all the marketing and all the bells and whistles that comes along with their massive applicators I typically end up with a more natural fringe of lashes after use. You’d think all that fanfare would give me some drama but sadly, the finish from a Lashblast Masara is typically mediocre and just falls flat of what one would expect especially because most come with those HUGE club style applicators that look like they could do some major damage.
Perhaps Clump Crushed by Lashblast will change my mind?
Bath & Body Works are giving out Holiday 2012 Catalogs with purchases in stores. Each catalog features three coupons as well as photos of some of the exciting Holiday offerings this year.
Although you’ve likely been privy to the catalog already I know some of international readers enjoy seeing snapshots of catalogs from a variety of shops so I thought I’d take some photos of the little mini catalog for those who don’t have easy access to Bath & Body Works.
I’m such a big fan of Josie Maran Cosmetics so I was quite excited when they asked if I’d like to extend a discount to readers. Thanks to Josie and her team for offering reader’s of Musings of a Muse 20% Off their entire purchase and Free Shipping on orders of $50 or more using promo code MUSE20. This is valid for one day ONLY!
They even created a lovely landing page for my reader’s with my favorite products!
Hi there! It’s a Who kinda morning…! Going mobile is totes my busy song. I do wonder why someone hasn’t picked it up for a cell commercial….you should see me sing it during Karaoke nights, it’s the hottest mess in the world when I’m pretending to be Pete Townshend. I always thought Pete sounded remarkably like Roger in certain parts of the song.
So sorry about the lack of posts this week. Work, life, the universe, and everything has me a bit busy! But I promise new posts are upcoming shortly.
I hope you’re all safe and warm. You’re in my thoughts Jersey, Long Island, and others on the East Coast still without power. If there’s some small thing I can do for any of you please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact button. I’d be happy to do what I can…! There’s a storm on the horizon and I’m hoping it’ll pass us by because I really can’t stand to think of anyone without heat on a cold night.
I’m sorry about the Sephora sale. Posting about it seems to have caused complete and utter chaos. I honestly don’t have insider info about this and I know many of you are upset with the sale (or really happy I hope?!) and how it went down this year. If I could fix it to make everyone happy I surely would but sadly I don’t have that power. Boo!
I surely hope your week is going well. I sincerely wish you all the best for your week ahead and hope for a quick weekend to appear for us all so we can rest, relax, and just chill for a moment while we take a deep breath and prepare for our next adventure.
I hope to talk to you all soon in the comments.
New posts, reviews, and general babble upcoming shortly.
Don’t forget to enter all the lovely giveaways going on at the moment.

My Bath & Body Works doesn’t have Lambie Plushes yet but I sure as hell want one as soon as they arrive. I was in store last week hauling candles like nobody’s business during the 2 for $20 but sadly no Lambie Plush!
However, they are available online for $8.50. At that price she’s probably quite small but still do so want a Lambie stashed under my tree this year. Now if they would just launch Lambie Blankets my Holiday dreams would be complete.
P.S. Annoying sales rep wanted to know why I was hauling so many candles. Dude, do I need a reason to haul ten candles…jeez! I told her the zombie apocalypse might cause a power outage, best be prepared. Grab your candles, your Twinkies, and your Daryl’s while you still can!
P.S.S. They had these cool moisture swirl hand soaps too in Winter Candle Apple and Vanilla Bean Noel but not such luck on Twisted Peppermint. They are kinda cool as they have a layer of lotion swirled into the antibacterial soap…!
The Disney Cinderella Ultimate Fairytale Collection is a super steal if you haven’t already indulged in the collection. QVC has packaged up many of the star products from this release and included them in one gift set with one very special low price, free shipping, and the option to pay for it all on easy pay.
