Rimmel London Shock Gloss 3D Mattifying Lipgloss

Ok…I wants Rimmel London Shock Gloss 3D Mattifying Lipgloss…..

rimmel%3B


I’m not Rimmel’s biggest fan but I’m actually quite curious to try these new glosses! These are available in three shades so far for
3.99 within the UK. The Muse is hopeful we’ll see them US side soon.

Rimmel has adapted the popular Asian spatula style applicator that I simply love for gloss application! More brands seriously have to get on board with this awesome applicator!

The shades are entitled Intense (Clear Pink), Clearly Clear (Clear), and Amp’ed (Red). The formula supposedly gives a highly glossy finish however I have tried one Rimmel gloss prior that promised similiar and was a grave disappointment!

I think I’ll wait to try them out when they reach my side of the pond rather than spend money on airmail on an item I may not like!

Are you within the UK?

Tried these yet?

Love ‘em!?

Share with the Muse!

New Korean Brand Beauty Credit

Round up those CP pals my friends! You’re going to need a CP pal after you hear this.

Muse you always talk about CP’s what the heck does that mean anyway?

Gasp! Some of us aren’t always up to date on our internet lingo so allow me to briefly explain that CP stands for “custom purchase”. This entails a certain individual from another country going out and purchasing an item for you and you either return the favor or you pay them via paypal. After arrangements have been made to either pay them or swap with them your items are sent over and you send any goods over to them and Bob’s your Uncle you have a CP partner!

I’ve done many a fine CP for people and have had many CP’s done for me thanks to people I’ve met on MUA, various makeup forums, etc….

You might remember Laura who runs around England snatching up Bourjois Paris for the Muse and shipping it over. I heart that girl!

The moral of the story is now is a good time to grab your CP partner OR find one on your local makeup board.

Beauty Credit is a brand new brand I came across while watching some Kiss and Makeup TV. Those cheeky monkees, Zara and Gemma, have created major lemmings for me after I viewed their video!

beauty+credit

Since the Muse loves Zara and Gemma so much she’ll forgive them this once for making her want to indulge in major amounts of Beauty Credit and roll around in it.

What’s Beauty Credit?

Somang Cosmetics is South Korea’s 5th Large Cosmetic manufacturer and distributor. It began in 1992 with three employees and has since ballooned into 600 employees! Amazing right? Somang Cosmetics has several sub-brands and just as Kanebo in Japan distributes several brands such as Lavshuca, Tiffa, Coffret D’Or, Etc…Somsang Cosmetics has several different brands it’s responsible for manufacturing and disturbing. One of which happens to be Beauty Credit.

My readers in Singapore may recognize Beauty Credit as it is available within Singapore. Beauty Credit is available in 17 countries including the US and Canada (I haven’t personally run across the brand within the US).

As you know from past posts and reviews I’ve done Korean cosmetics are normally two important things, high quality and cheap plus add in very cute and you got cosmetic nirvana. I think we established how much the Muse loves Korean makeup and culture already so of course I jumped all over Beauty Credit when I heard about it!

The good news is I’ll be reviewing some of the line for you shortly. The bad news is that you can’t order it online within the US. Sorry guys. Which is why you’ll need that CP pal across the pond for the hook up of purchasing and sending over some Beauty Credit your way (or if you’re lucky maybe Beauty Credit is available in your area of the US?)

The really good news if you happen to be lucky enough to be English (the Muse wants to be English when she grows up if she can’t she’ll settle for having an English accent and being Asian in her next life…what are the chances I’ll get that lucky?!) you’ll REALLY want to pay close attention to this little brand since it’s very, very cheap. It’s rare you can find quality cosmetics in England at a good price. And this brand is very nicely priced for UK beauty addicts.

I don’t yet know how good the products are but I shall be reviewing them shortly as I mentioned but I’m sure it’ll be fabulous as when have we run across Asian cosmetics that aren’t anything but brilliant right? The line looks very promising and contains bath and body, skincare, and cosmetics. Did I mention they have their own BB Cream too? Promising, very promising!

Stay tuned for further info!

Rose & Co. Goodness

Did you know that salve is the Solution to Life, the Universe, and Everything? Or so the Muse likes to think so!

It’s been a while since I headed over to the Rose & Co. website so imagine my delight when I came across some rather interesting bits and pieces that I’m dying to indulge in!

Since a tin of Rose & Co. Rose Petal Salve lasts me for a few hundred years I rarely hop over to the site to have a lookiee around!

However, since I was busy researching for the blog aka procrastinating at work I decided to pay Rose & Co. a little visit and came across some yummie goodness that I wants!

Eyeko New Releases for Summer 2008 and New Packaging too!

back header

Eyeko is my favorite little brand in all of England (and that’s sayin’ something considering what a Lushie I am!).

It appears Eyeko has a few new items up on it’s site that I did spy with my little eye! One product in particular that caught my eye was my very favorite cream in new clothes!

Eyeko’s popular cream has been revamped and repackaged and is looking quite glam! The Muse is excited as she’s running low so a new package definately appeals!

eyeko+cream

I guess Eyeko went all out for Spring/Summer because I see quite a few new items available on the website!

How about some Eyeko Eye Beauty Eyeshadows?

5.00 gets you a fun tin of eyeshadows to make yourself pretty! These appear similar to Pop’s Eye Cake but they have my heart for the cute design on the package! Three options to choose from too! The Muse has her eye on the Pretty Eye Palette!

If it’s sparkle and shimmer you seek I imagine Eyeko has you covered with it’s new Sparkle Powder! 5.00 gets you a cute box full of candy scented shimmer to dust where you please!

You might need something to remove all the makeup on your face at the end of the day so Eyeko has new Face Off Wipes! Grab a box of 20 for 5.00 and wipe all that makeup off your face with a pre-soaked towelette that contains only good things for your skin like Vitamin E! They claim to remove water proof mascara too! I’m on it!

I’m always looking for my holy grail concealer might Eyeko’s new Touch Up and Go Concealer be it? At 5.00 I can afford to say yes to a test drive!

eyekoconcelaer

Considering our good friend Kylie Minogue is such a great fan of Eyeko Cream she should be happy about the release of Eyeko’s Touch Up and Glow Highlighter! Click your way to beautiful for 5.00!

All of Eyeko’s new items are in my cart for purchase! I’ll definately bring you a review shortly!

Love Eyeko?

Want any of the new line up?
