MAC Beauty Powders


The Muse got her small haul of Beauty Powders from MAC Pro yesterday. She’s been too nuts at work to actually go in and grab them so she rang them up and paid the $7 to have them shipped to her home!

At the time the actual move of paying taxes plus the additional $7 for shipping seems to make the original price tag of $21 per powder a bit much!

However, she has good news, the powders are all that and a bag of chips and well worth the cost of shipping.

I’ll be reviewing these shortly for your reading pleasure! The good news is they are wonderful, the bad news is I only ordered two of the eight colors and now I am seriously wanting the rest!

Uh oh…

Stay tuned for the review and pictures!

Samples Anyone?

Love samples? Love trying new things?

Imagine a box full of sample and full size products that you can enjoy at a low price.


Check out The Little Black Box for a fabulous box of goodies. For $23.50 you get a box full of interesting tidbits to try out! Cosmetics, Candles, and Bath and Body bits and bobs are only some of what you’ll find in the box you order!

The Little Black Box is on sale monthly and each month is a great time to experience new goodies! It’s an awesome way to discover interesting new shops on the internet that you may never have thought of trying before!

The next box is on sale October 19th and includes samples (and if you’re lucky full size items) from over 35 online shops!

The Muse loves the idea of a big old sample box of goodies! She can’t wait to order her box!

Shop Shu

For the longest time, in order to get my Shu dosage, I ordered from the Shu Uemura website but now I can shop Shu from Sephora!

Sephora used to carry a limited range of Shu cosmetics but it now offers quite a few more items! It doesn’t yet carry the entire line but it’s slowly adding more and more items.

This makes the Muse happy! Especially when it’s time for the Friends and Family discount at Sephora! Shu discounted! Yes, indeed the Muse is content!

Survival Beauty

I think, as a woman, I’ve asked myself the question, “What items would I need if I were stranded on a deserted island?”, a million times!

You must ask yourself this too or have had a friend ask you what three or four items would you ABSOLUTELY need if you could have nothing else with you!

Well..I’d answer…I need a stunning man (or two) to climb trees for me and gather coconuts, and fish, and do all that manly stuff because I’m a delicate ladeeee!

And I’d also need a few beauty items. Sadly I’m unable to give you a list of three or four items I absolutely have to have because really I’d be lying if I said the list was that bloody short! Knowing me I’d need a u-haul truck full of cosmetics, skincare, and general girlish rubbish to keep me content on a deserted tropical island! I don’t give one flying leap it’s paradise! I need cosmetics damnit and I need them now!

If I’m without I might as well jump into the ocean and perish!

But have no fear I don’t have to go through such drastic measures as that!

Victoria Jackson is here to save the day!

If the ship was sinking and the rescue boats were waiting to whisk me to the deserted island in wait of help I’d grab up my Victoria Jackson Survival Kit and call it a day!

YAY I can be fabulous and stranded!

The Survival Kit is by far the coolest little gadget the Muse has set eyes on. The Muse likes nifty gadgets it must be the geek in her!

Flip up the top and an eye pencil, lip pencil, and mascara await you!

Split the kit open and two blushes and a mirror are on one side.

Flip over the blush tray and another mirror (in case you didn’t feel fabulous looking at yourself in the first one!) and 5 lipcreams are at the ready to make you gorgeous!

Slide the tray out on the side and 2 trays of 5 shimmering shadows (10 in total) are here to make your eyelids sparkle with color!

Slip the tray out on the opposite side and a blush brush, shadow brush, and lip brush are enclosed to put your face on!

How freaking cool is this?

Thanks Victoria! We beauty junkies needed this! Might the Muse add that this is the perfect little treat to take with you on trips! With all the rigid airline rules in place I get very nervous packing my precious cosmetic items for fear they’ll be broken or taken away! Pack this up and I’d say you’re good to go and look elegant at the same time!


Elke Von Freudenberg on the Wedding Podcast Show

I happened upon this tonight and thought I’d share! The Muse’s new mate, Elke, is on the Wedding Podcast Show discussing quickie makeup application tips and eyebrow shaping! I was particularly enthralled listening to her discuss eyebrow shaping (I had a giggle when she said she sorta looks at girls in the street and envisions what she could do to make the brow area better, etc…). I’d love to see what sort of advice she’d give the Muse about her brows!

Anyway do CLICK over and listen! It’s quite interesting!

While were on the topic of eyebrow shaping check out the photoshopped eyebrow job that Kiss and Makeup did on Keira Knightley!

Remember kids, eyebrow shaping is important, don’t want to go around looking like that scary photoshopped version of Keira do ya?
