Bourjois Paris Mineral Matte Foundation Review

The Muse sobs herself silly daily when she thinks about how Bourjois seems to be slowly yanking itself out of the US. Anyone notice when you visit their site they don’t even have a US portal anymore? Oh my god talk about ruin my day!

At the moment the only place I know you can pick up the line is at Ulta, outside of that it’s kinda difficult to locate. Lucky enough I have a few good friends in England who kindly snag me my Bourjois Paris.

Today I’m reviewing Bourjois Paris Mineral Matte Foundation. I got alot of e-mail about this one as many people were quite curious about it.

Shills Miss Perfect Pores Hide Review

Shills Miss Perfect Pores Hide 1

To think I was just bragging to you how my skin is bulletproof but wanna know one thing that makes me break out like a teenager? Freaking Benefit Dr. Feelgood!

The cute packaging slays me but man oh man this stuff breaks me out something fierce. I have no idea what causes the problem but damn straight I get a face full of pimples whenever I attempt trying it out.

Shills Miss Perfect Pores Hide recently captured my attention. Knowing how bad Dr. FeelGood is for my skin didn’t really stop me from wanting to try this out regardless. It’s the packaging, the damn packaging does me in every single time.

SkinFood Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence Review

Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence 1

I swear most bloggers (and perhaps readers too!) would look down their noses at me for reviewing skincare within a week or two of testing it out but that’s how the Muse rolls.

In all seriousness my skin is like a bulletproof vest. I can pretty much test out anything and not break out. I imagine if I took to slathering acid on my face I’d probably be quite alright. That’s just how my skin is. So of course I do declare that I can pretty much get a feel for a moisturizer within first use. I can make a snap decision on the spot if I love it or if I hate it after first use.

My experience with Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence was a quickie I love you, I can’t live without you situation.

L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Anti-Dull Skin Primer Review

L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Anti Dull Skin Primer 1

The Muse is still having a bit of a tantrum that the new L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Collection that hit England earlier this year has yet to rear it’s head on this side of the pond. It looks like such an interesting array of products and it’s such a blooming shame it’s failed to come to the US as of yet.

No worries I’m kinda sorta keeping my fingers crossed that it’ll pop up come Spring. What are our chances?

In the mean time I’ll show you one item I was lucky enough to try out when a friend gifted me with it recently.

Check it!
