Jesses Girl Eye Color Collection 9 Pan Eye Shadow Compact 001

Money saving divas put your hands up.

I’ve always been a bit of a beauty snob but I started venturing into drugstore beauty around the same time I migrated to the WordPress Platform. I wanted Musings to be a place where you can find both high end, low end, and beauty abroad purchases. I wanted to bring variety to you guys and in doing so I ended up opening the door for myself as well because at one point I’d turn my nose up at budget beauty but I readily admit you can score a deal on occasion.

My latest beauty budget purchase is the new Jesse’s Girl Eye Color Collection Palettes.

Take a look!

Sula Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Sula Blush 001

Sula Blush doing me proud today.

At $8 ($6.50 on sale now at Ulta.com) who would have thought you’d get this much pigment? Think bolder, richer, and more vibrant than a NARS Blush.

True story peeps!

Revlon Diamond Lust Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Revlon Diamond Lust Eyeshadow 001

Revlon introduced new Diamond Lust Eyeshadow with their Revlon Expressionists Collection. This Fall Collection was a collaboration between Gucci Westman and Revlon for Fall 2011. I’m not sure if the Diamond Lust Eyeshadows are exclusive to these displays and limited edition but I have a feeling that Revlon might be adding them to their color catalog once Fall is over….but don’t quote me there.

With Maybelline Eye Studio we’ve come into a nice selection of shimmering shades of shadow however drugstore shimmer finishes are kinda limited in my opinion. Not alot of brands carry shimmery finishes so it’s nice to see that Revlon went all out with these Diamond Eyeshadows as they do, indeed, pack a TON of shimmer.

Let’s take a look!
