This actually isn’t as hard a question as I thought it would be when I was originally writing it out…Jump ahead to read why!
When I first asked myself What was the most important thing in my makeup bag? I started to panic! How could I just pick one thing? But than I realized, wait a sec, I don’t carry a slew of cosmetics with me in my bag anyway so what am I so worried about?
If I had to pick thing it would be cheek stain. It’s completely multitasking so I can give a hint of color to my cheeks and lips and at the very least I look healthy and fresh so it’s probably the most important item in my bag. Although my makeup doesn’t last all day, my skin is very clear so I don’t need to keep touching up with powder or foundation. I chew my gloss off almost an hour after it’s on so it’s important to keep one stashed away but I find that once it’s off I get too busy to actually reapply so unless I am going out after work I don’t retouch it. I carry a compact mirror but that’s honestly available anywhere…in my car, in a bathroom, etc..where can’t you find a mirror nowadays right?
So stain it is 😉 Works on my cheeks and lips and makes me go from dull to lovely!
How about you? What’s the most important thing in your makeup bag?
Tell the Muse!
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.
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!
What’s your take on HD cosmetics?
Love the idea?
Tell the Muse!
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?
Tell the Muse!
The Muse is a sucker for freebies…..don’t even sit there and lie about loving freebies…I won’t believe you!

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