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?

Bobbi Brown Metallics Swatches

As requested by a lovely reader. Some swatches from the new Bobbi Brown Metallic Palettes:

Sadly, I don’t think these will be too helpful! My camera doesn’t pick up swatches well on my arm or hand and it doesn’t seem to like them on paper either! I guess it gives you a general idea of the colors but isn’t all that great a help! These are palettes you have to venture into the store to see, touch, and try out for yourself!

Sorry ’bout the crummy swatches icon wink Did my best!

Oh Woe Is Me!

Avon has decided it didn’t really want you to have the Cynthia Rowley Collection this soon.

About 5 hours after receiving the email announcement and placing items in my cart I got this message:

Dear AVON Customer,

We experienced technical difficulties on our websites today, which triggered an email informing you that the Cynthia Rowley product you’ve been waiting for was now available. Unfortunately, it will not be available until September 14, 2007. We will send another reminder email at that time.

We’re very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Sincerely,
AVON Online Customer Care

Alright than tease and torture us and than leave us high and dry! How unclassy Avon!

I personally think it’s a publicity stunt! or was it?

Cynthia Rowley Avon Collection

Back in June I was browsing around my favorite blog A Touch of Blusher (See I not only write a blog, I’m also obsessed about reading them too) when I came across an article about Cynthia Rowley cosmetics! Behold something the Muse never heard of! Now as far as Cynthia Rowley fashion and accessories this the Muse has heard of but cosmetics? Never knew she had a line of cosmetics! A Touch of Blusher educated the Muse about some very cute Cynthia Rowley cosmetics and made her lem them rather hard but sadly they are impossible to track down on E-bay, MUA, or anywhere really!

I never really purchase Avon and can’t even properly give anything from Avon a review but the Cynthia Rowley collection may just end up in my cart as the packaging is so delightfully cute! This collection is available now from Avon for a limited time! Check it out! The all over face powder is intriguing the Muse!
