Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer Review and Swatches

So you know how I’m always on the quest for the perfect concealer?   I do tend to get all Indiana Jone-like when it comes to locating concealer.  By now I’ve tried hundreds……What?  Some people love eyeshadow, some gloss, and me, I just happen to be passionate about concealer.

Get this, good times, I discovered Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer this weekend and I likey.  I know right?  That’s so saying something considering I wouldn’t trust the drugstore with something as important as concealer.  But indeed its heck of a good stuff.

Loving you L’Oreal HIP Jelly Balm for super glossy lips on the cheap. MAC Tendertones are nice but I never fell completely in love with them, after discovering L’Oreal HIP Jelly Balms I’d say that any love or like I had for MAC Tendertones is overs, these are WAY better (and cheaper too)!

Beauty on a Budget: L’Oreal HIP Matte Shadow Duo

LOreal HIP Matte Shadow Duo 3

The Muse wants to know, are there really people out there that work in mattes?   If so, I want you to know I admire you so bloody much.  Matte is probably one of thee most difficult mediums I’ve had the pleasure of working with.  I’m no expert at makeup application but I do think that shimmers, pearls, creams, etc…are way easier to blend and work with when compared to mattes.  Mattes are the work of the devil as far as this Muse is concerned.

However, if matte is your bag you’ll adore the fact that L’Oreal HIP now has a range of shadow duos that are matte in formula and highly pigmented.
