The Muse so needs to try out Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer!
Have you see these? Check it!
I rarely get excited about drugstore cosmetics but this looks promising to say the least. When I was purchasing my cheese mascara at Walgreens I ran across a display of these but sadly all the lighter shades were sold out.
I’m generally curious about the product as it reminds me of Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown’s dual concealers which has the creamy concealer on top and a silky white setting powder on the bottom. I’m not sure but that Flickr photo says $12.79 USD and don’t quote me but I could have sworn it was $8.99 USD around these parts.
Must. have. it. now.
Honestly, it seems promising to say the least and hopefully I can locate it as I’m highly curious if it’s worth the splurge! You know me, concealer gets me happy!
Welcome to a new category entitled “In the Muse’s Purse”! I thought this would be a kinda fun way of seeing what I’m toting around in my purse at the moment.
Now it doesn’t include EVERYTHING that’s in my purse it only includes one item that I am loving at the moment! You’ll have to check out my next post to see what else is happening in my purse!
Jump ahead to see what’s featured In the Muse’s Purse today!
Omg this is probably so corny but I’m utterly in love with single packs of Kleenex Aroma Tissues.
I picked these up at Harmon’s a few weeks ago and they have every since made a guest starring appearance in my bag. Considering my nose is always stuffy in the Winter it’s ideal to have a single package of small tissues around for cases of the sniffles or even for blotting my lipstick.
What’s so special about a package of tissues?
Well…they are actually aroma tissues…cool right? What’s that mean? It means they are scented with Strawberry, Mint, and Nectarine. Teehee! Cool right? What? Sue me, the little things make a Muse happy.
I kinda get a kick out of Strawberry scented tissues! I just thought these were too cute and a nice little item to tote around in my bag. Who wants boring old tissues when they can have Minty, Strawberry, or Nectarine scented ones!
Kleenex Aroma Tissues are currently what’s in the Muse’s purse!
What’s in your purse?
Tell the Muse!
The Muse was wondering how is the current economy influencing your beauty purchases?
Are you cutting back on your normal hauls? Saving more?
I’m very, very anal about setting budget goals for just about everything in my life. I plan cosmetic releases (and non cosmetic things) down to the last penny but occasionally I do go over budgets that I set for myself but it’s quite rare. I think present economic situation has definitely influenced my purchasing as I’m not so quick to jump on board purchasing every single shade of aqua eyeshadow put out. I’m a tad bit more conscious of asking myself do I really need this or do I have two dozen of the same thing at home? I’m also pretty tame with my MAC hauling late. I honestly don’t think this has too much to do with the economy so much as it has to do with scaling back some as sometimes I do realize that I have a bit TOO much stuff hanging around!
How about you?
The Muse MIGHT be easily amused, it’s hard to say really with her sense of humor but she did so find it slightly funny that Zirh has a Warrior Collection of Shower Gels available at the moment for men.
If your man’s ego isn’t bloated enough you can now buy him Warrior Shower Gel that will make him feel like Alexander the Great, Ulysses, and dare I save even Julius freaking Caesar.
Feed his ego with these fine shower gels from Zirh and I’m postive he’ll be charging into your bedroom with a toga wrapped around his body yelling “All Hail Caesar!”
How oddly exciting….
Remember how fond the Muse is of ranting about the lack of face masks available without the US? Asian markets are flooded with all sorts of facial masks and it’s a common part of skincare regime to use these masks for extra moisture, whitening benefits, and a number of other reasons. Almost all masks are commonly found in drugstores at quite an inexpensive price tag.
Now US women are quite deprived of these great treatments and if you’re seeking such a face mask a few select brand such as Shu make these masks but with a high price tag.
I was excited to see that the Sephora Brand Power Mask Collection has popped up at Sephora! Wow finally a company within the US was finally jumping on board the face mask craze.
Don’t get too excited, read ahead to find out why!
The idea behind the Sephora Brand Powder Mask Collection was quite exciting as I loved the idea of finding masks locally at my Sephora store. Cool!
Three masks are available for use one of which is a face mask that delivers extra moisture to the face! The Muse can always use as much moisture as possible on my face. Also available is an eye mask that also delivers moisture, comfort, and cooling to the eye area.
And finally another face mask option is available that nourishes tired skin and creates a more fresher, newer you!
Are you excited yet? I was.
Until I seen the price.
Umm hello expensive how are you?
The masks are not sold in bulk such as ones from Asian companies which means you’re getting a SINGLE mask, ONE time use for a price tag that starts at $8 and ends somewhere at $12.
Even Shu Eye Masks run cheaper at $45 for a box of 8 which adds up to around $5.65 per a mask.
Um no my face does not need moisture at that cost! Especially moisture that isn’t even from a high end brand name.
Needless to say you won’t catch these in my cart until they are on clearance for a buck ninety nine. The Muse is all about playing it cheap with these masks! Love the idea, no likey the price.
Lower your prices Sephora and they will come.
