I’m trying out a new category here at Musings called Beauty Babble. The Beauty Babble section will basically be a scenario of “possibilities” with questions and answers about what you’d do in situations where cosmetics would be needed!
Your house on fyressssss! Oh my god! What beauty item would you grab while running out the door! (might as well add this one into our Beauty Babble this week)
Jump ahead to see this week’s Beauty Babble!
Your in a deep sleep, REM has set in, your snoring out of one nostril and drooling from your mouth while dreams of Colin Firth sweeping you across an English country side dances through your head! Suddenly an annoying beeping makes a guest starring appearance in your Pride and Prejudice fantasy, what the hells is it? Oh my god it’s the smoke alarm! You have to jump out of your bed and get out of your house (or apartment, parent’s basement, rental room, etc…) as quick as you can! You have to grab one beauty product! What would it be?
The Muse says concealer. I could probably live without the rest but I need concealer to cover up my scary puffy eyes, fine lines, and dark circles! I’d probably go with the Mally Concealer System, I figure I could pass it off as two products in one since it has a setting powder and a creamy concealer.
You’re on a gorgeous cruise, the weather is beautiful, you’ve been enjoying fun in the sun and plenty of eating at that never ending buffet (does the food every end?). As you’re waiting on that buffet line in your string bikini the captain announces you must abandon ship! Waiting life boats are prepared to dump you on a deserted tropical island. The captain happens to be a makeup junkie so he allows you to select one item from your train case to take with you! What will it be?
The Muse says SPF! As tempting as it is to say concealer or powder (imagine my oily face in that humidity), I’d much rather protect my skin with a good SPF, I’d simply die if I ended up all tanned and gross looking (the Muse no likey tanning). I’d probably go with Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection as it’s one of my favs!
As you’re yawning through your work day and procrastinating terribly by reading beauty blogs you notice your favorite blogger is going to the moon! You read further to hear she (or he) is giving away tickets to the moon, whoa. Foaming from the mouth you eagerly comment and enter for your chance to go to the moon with your favorite beauty blogger (your fav beauty blogger should be the Muse btw plus as soon as cosmetic companies start giving away trips to the moon you know damn well I’m holding a contest for one!). A week later you’re contacted about winning but sadly you’re only allowed to take one item with you due to strict moon travel accommodations. What do you take with you to the moon?
I’d so take some sort of anti-frizz gel or spray! Imagine a no gravity situation? You’d be looking like Einstein as soon as your foot hit pay dirt! I’d probably go with Lush King of Mods, Soap & Glory Hair Supply, or some of that Sunsilk Captivating Curls smoothing cream!
Now it’s your turn. Put your self in all the above situations, a fire, a trip to the moon, and a humid tropical island. Now think hard….what one item would you take with you to those destinations? This Beauty Babble is all about Survival Beauty!

Musings of a Muse has a loyal readership both within the US and Internationally. Japan, Singapore, Korea, and England are just a few of the many places that Musings gets traffic from. Readers are very interactive about what they are currently loving in the cosmetic world here at Musings and love hearing about the latest and greatest on the makeup front!
Musings of a Muse is popular do to the fact that the Muse is an average, everyday girl (Not Paris Hilton!) that’s passionate about cosmetics, skincare, and other wonderful beauty finds and that excitement and passion comes out in her posts and reviews to readers (If anything at all the Muse sure does know how to get the blood boiling and pumping when it comes to new cosmetic finds!)!
If this is an environment that you’d like to see your product reviewed in do drop the Muse an e-mail.
My press time varies depending on what I have lined up for review at the moment however I can make room if you need your review posted at a quicker turn around time! Just ask nicely 😉

Please keep in mind the Muse is sometimes swamped reviewing, testing, posting, replying to comments, and real life sometimes catches up with her too so if you don’t get a reply right away to your email please be patient she promises to write back really soon!
If you can’t wait for a reply just comment and you’ll get an uber quick reply from yours truly!
Who is this Muse girl anyway?
Around the Internet I’m simply known as the Muse. A Muse of makeup maybe..the Muse in Musings perhaps?
Could be anything.
Who am I really?
I’m just an average, everyday, general cosmetic junkie that plans to take over the world. You can join me and my minions on our quest for cosmetic nirvana by reading my uber awesome, fabulous blog!
In all seriousness……….
I’m a 30 year old, native New Yorker. Born, Bred, and Raised in this little city (but traveled far from home on many a fine occasion seeking new and exciting beauty products from distant lands…it’s true just check my blog for reviews on products you may have never heard of!).
Contrary to popular belief I do not work in the fashion or cosmetic industry, far from it.
When I’m not moonlighting as the Editor here at Musings (Wow! Editor sounds so bloody important doesn’t it?) I have a real job, in the real world as an Insurance Broker, underwriting commercial and personal policies. I own and operate my own office with my older sister and together we are a legend in our own minds (I’m positive other people think we are legendary as well but I haven’t met one yet! If I do I’ll let you know!).
I also enjoy pina coladas and getting caught in the rain….
When I’m not posting tons of reviews, testing new products, and playing around in the comment box with my awesome readers you can find me at some high end counter looking for the next awesome cosmetic find.
I’m also a geek and come with all the excess baggage geeks come with such as attending crazy conventions, playing stupid amounts of WoW, reading manga, and watching Star Trek and Doctor Who reruns.
In my spare time I love shopping, eating out, going to the movies, and enjoying good times with my friends (Hey, I live in the city that never sleeps! We got plenty of awesome entertainment options here!).
I’m a huge lover of literature, indie and foreign films and could possibly be more passionate about these than cosmetics. Whoa.
I adore traveling and have been to many great and exotic places! I’m a big lover of Japanese, Korean, and British popular culture.
Ok, ok enough about me…I feel like I’m on a dating site here….
Something you’re dying to know about little, old, boring me?
E-mail or comment! I’ll happily provide the deets!
