Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit

With the evolution of technology someone, somewhere in the cosmetic world decided that now was the time to introduce a slew of HD inspired products. With that brand new HD TV you got for Christmas you may just want to indulge in some HD makeup to go along with it to hide flaws, wrinkles, spots, and any other woes that your face may possess. After all HD displays and shows EVERYTHING thus we can’t likely get away with our simple makeup application anymore, we have to step it up a notch and bring our application process into the realms of high-def.

HD

Yeah well you either laughed really hard at my LOL l33t speak or you just didn’t get it……

Considering everyone and their mum has jumped on board with this idea it’s really caused a rather nice craze and hype. Truth of the matter is do we honestly need HD makeup? The Muse likes to think we don’t. She’s not against looking flawless but when is it likely she’ll appear on telly? I guess we can chalk up HD as being one of those extra mile stones that we all want to pass to enter into the flawless skin nirvana we all seem to crave.

I wouldn’t trust my HD makeup to anyone so when I seen the Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit I knew that indeed it was time to actually cross paths with HD makeup and take the plunge!

So you may be a bit weary when you finally figure out that Morgen Schick actually offers her cosmetics through HSN. I know, I know. The idea of no name products off of HSN may scare you. Honestly, I’ve found some amazing products on Home Shopping and I’m not embarrassed to admit that. Although Morgen is far from being a no name she still is for many an unknown. I personally think her products are some of the most awesome I’ve come across and the flawless finish you see to my skin in about 85% percent of my photos is thanks to her Hide and Highlight Palette.

Anyway about this HD thing I was talking about.

I recently ordered the Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit from HSN for $39.50 USD and of course I’ll bring a review of it to you as soon as it arrives in my mail box. I’m quite excited about the kit as Morgen has a special knack for creating products that just do a world of wonder for making dull skin light up and glow. The hype of the HD bug never did bite me but as soon as I seen this kit I knew it was about time to jump into the world of HD makeup!

For now I’ll leave you with the video showing application and general information about the kit.


Expect the Muse’s review very soon!

Musings of the Day: Possession Obsession

musingsoftheday

Do you hate your friends digging into your cosmetics? Can’t stand when your mate tries to use your favorite gloss? Absolutely abhor the idea of anyone touching your beloved stash?

I probably fall into the possessive category with my cosmetics but than again none of my friends are as obsessed about makeup as I am but I still don’t like them digging through my collection or swatching it or lord knows even using it! I guess I’m a greedy girl that doesn’t share her toys well!

How about you?

Are you possessive with your makeup or maybe it doesn’t bother you if someone touches or uses your stash?

Dior Night Diamond All Over Diamond Dust Powder Price Cut @ Sephora

Although the Muse absolutely adores her Dior Night Diamond All Over Diamond Dust Powder and strokes it lovingly, and tells it how pretty is is, and reminds it how much she cares about….what was I saying?

Oh yea!

Although I simply adore my Dior Night Diamond I’m a little disappointed that the price has been completely chopped down!

dior+night+diamond

The Muse paid a whopping $80 USD for the compact and it’s now down to $59 USD….le sigh. I feel rather badly that I shelled out so much and now it’s down over $20 bucks! That stinks! I’m contemplating calling Sephora and asking for a refund.

Although the Muse felt it was well worth it’s costly price tag, the good news is if you didn’t originally take advantage of it at full price you can now get it at a considerably savings!

Happy Shopping!

2008 Year End Reflection

2164550936 d8f1cff09d

It feels like the year virtually flew by doesn’t it? It’s been a great year for makeup that’s for sure! My year end favorite post is upcoming shortly but I thought we could reflect on a few things first!

Some of the questions I asked myself as I was reflecting were the following:

favs

The Muse will place her answers here and you can answer, if you like, in the comment field below! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this!

I think I have to take myself all the way back to Spring 2008 to get a good idea of my very favorite collection of the year. The Etude House My Lovely Face Collection (aka Peach Collection) was my absolute favorite of the year! And it’s no wonder with it’s great packaging, fresh peachy shades, and incredible Pore Erasing Peach Base! This was by far my fav of the year! Etude House Spring 2009 I Can’t Help Smiling is simply adorably but in the Muse’s opinion it isn’t nearly as kawaii as last year’s collection!

In reflecting on my tastes and whether they have changed or not from last year I’d have to say a loud YES! I embraced more natural looks this year, got really excited about nudes and neutrals, and just dramatically altered my normal bold looks to include some very mature ones! So yes indeed my tastes have changed a tad bit. This doesn’t mean I don’t still adore bold looks but I have to say I’ve surprised myself with the amount of natural makeup I’ve taken on lately!

Unquestionably my greatest cosmetic find of the year was NARS Blush in Super Orgasm! I’ve heard rants and I’ve heard hate but I simply adored it. For me it was pure perfection! Not that it tops Super Orgasm but discovering that Urban Decay Primer has a SLEW of product left in the bottle after slicing it open is definitely a highlight of my year as well!

I can’t say so much if I embraced any trends this year. I kinda march to the beat of my own drum and I’m not one for embracing a trend but more along the lines of doing my own thing! One trend I definitely couldn’t get a handle on, no mater how hard I tried, was the vampy lip! I tried with MAC Binge and tried again with the Lancome Piha Collection but it just didn’t work on this Muse!

I’d be a liar if I said I wasn’t somewhat excited about the MAC Hello Kitty Collection! Although I made up my own little ideas about how this collection should look, I do find myself getting more and more antsy for it’s release as I am eager to see it in person for myself. Yes, I know I’ll be disappointed but I just can’t seem to shake the feeling that maybe, just maybe, it’ll be great! I’m also excited to see what the Summer has in store for us! Summer releases are a great time to stock up on bold shades so of course I look forward to what MAC, Urban Decay, and other brands have on the menu for the warmer weather!

Now it’s your turn…..

Tell the Muse all about what you loved and hated in 2008?

What your greatest find was?

What trends you embraced?

I’m listening!
