You see what the world needs now is NOT love sweet love but Rollerblush!
Yes indeed that’s what we need!
For $10 you can purchase blush on a roll! Flirt Cosmetics offers a roll of blush with sheets you can rip off that hold a sheer wash of blush! Stroke on and PRESTO! you’re gorgeous!
Don’t you love simplicity?
But…the Muse says she might skip this! The general idea of $10 blush on a roll scares me a little bit (reminds me too much of toilet paper maybe!)
Pack your bags we are all moving to Europe (or Asia whichever you like) so we can get some Bourjois Paris Mini cosmetics!
Why oh why don’t we have the Mini line here in the states? The Cosmetic Gods hate us!
Look at the cuteness:
Bourjois Paris Mini Eyeshadows and Empty Palettes
Plus did I mention these are dirt cheap? £1.50-£1.95 for Empty Palette Pans
and £2.95 for Shadows!
It’s unjust and cruel that we Yanks have no access to Mini Bourjous Paris!
Ok I think I may have missed something or my brain is a little muddled after such a long holiday!
Clue me in if you please.
Sephora has a new palette out with 16 of it’s bestselling eyeshadows! Here’s the kicker. It’s $48.
Ok so it’s a palette right and like it has 16 shades of eyeshadow and it’s $48 bucks.
Um…I’m doing the math but it’s not adding up!
I can get this for $48:
I can get this for $48:
Is it possible the price is wrong?
My god this is boggling my little mind!
It’s just too much for a Monday morning!
I guess my heading is a bit dramatic and if you’re not a Douglas Adams fan you have no idea what the reference is about however it is slightly true!
Behold my solution to Life, the Universe and Everything lays within a tiny tin of lip balm!
Ok, ok enough drama but I will say I can’t recommend this balm enough and if you don’t have at least five of these tins in your draw already you better hurry to the store and grab some immediately! Rosebud Salve is my cure all, multitasking beauty demon that works in any number of ways to save the day! This works on everything! When I say everything I really mean EVERYTHING! If you visit the website they’ll recommend it for any number of things that will amaze you but I personally use it for the following reasons:
Chapped Lips: I get severe chapped lips come winter and this is wonderfully soothing and healing on my cracked, dry lips!
Eyebrows: A small amount keeps my brows in proper shape all day long!
Zits: Yes I said zits! This works great on small pimples and dries them up almost instantly!
Elbows, Knees, and Feet: I use this on all my rough patchy skin areas like my knees, elbows, and on the heals of my feet! It makes my skin smooth and soft!
Cuts, Cuticles, Hangnails, and Burns: I’m not exactly Betty Crocker in the kitchen but when I do get small burns from removing something from the oven I can dab a little of this on to soothe it! It also works great on small cuts! Smooths out my cuticle area and for hangnails it works amazingly well to sooth the dry skin and makes me less likely to rip it off!
I can probably go on and on with this list! I’ve been using this stuff for ages and it’s amazing! I’ve seen imitation brands but nothing works as good as the original Rosebud Perfume Co. Smith’s Rosebud Salve!
I love the fact that over the course of the last few years they have done different flavors! I really can’t pick a favorite as I adore them all! Mint Rose is a delightful Victorian rose and mint flavor! It may sound weird but the taste is yum! The strawberry is yummie too! And the regular rose flavor is delightfully fragrant and tasty! The mentholated one I don’t use on my lips but I do use on my chest when I’m feeling a bit congested!
Mostly this post was inspired by the fact that a new flavor has been introduced that the Muse is dying to try!
Brambleberry Rose Lip Balm
This new flavor promises the taste of freshly baked berry pie! Mmm my lips are singing already!
Here are a few in my collection (I keep these everywhere! My desk draw, washroom, nightstand, etc…):
Original Rosebud Salve (This is my body tin which accounts for the amount used hehe! Hands, Feet, Toes, Legs, Etc…)
These tins run $6-$7 each and are an incredible value as the tin is HUGE! The Muse highly recommends Rosebud Salve which makes these Muse approved!
Tell the Muse!
