Beauty News: Missha

Slap me happy! The Muse was browsing around the Internets and noticed that Missha revamped it’s website and now you can even order online!

Well, ‘ello there!

Missha is a Korean brand that’s sold in Korean, select Asian countries, and even Australia. Up until now I’ve never been privy to Missha within the US although I’ve seen a few odd pieces from it’s skincare collection here and there but never it’s point/base makeup collection.

Maybe I’ve been living under a rock but this is the first time I’ve seen Missha offering some of it’s point and base makeup items for sale within the US online including, ‘ello, BB Creams!

Now don’t get too excited as they really don’t have a whole lot going on at the moment, guess they are testing their feet in the US waters but they do have a few pieces here and there that can be exciting for the Asian cosmetic junkie in us all. Hey they even have the Missha Over Blusher! It’s a start people, it’s a start!

Some items are about the same price you’d pay in Korea but some are considerably higher. For example the BB Cream is $24.99 USD on the US site and 9,800? within Korea…major price jump. But they do offer free shipping with a $40 purchase and free samples plus you know you’re getting a fresh tube of BB where as with E-bay you have to pay shipping, probably aren’t getting samples, and may be getting an old tube.

Honestly, I’d rather give Missha my money than some E-bayer who’s jacking up the price on me. At least purchasing from Missha I can justify the higher costs as being a possible deal with importing it.

Anyway you splice it count the Muse happy she can get some Missha in the US now! Tis exciting news if ever I did hear it.

Pieces of Life: The Economy Edition

Did you read the news today? Obviously you have considering I think we all watch it as it’s such a train wreck we can’t keep our eyes from it now can we?

Today’s newscast is the demise of Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Saks….hello insanity!

Clickie!

Looks like our fav luxury retailers are barely keeping their heads above water at the moment. And finally we reach the pinnacle of no return.

What do you think?

It’ll get better……?

No way, it’s the long road home!

Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadow Mystery Solved!

The Muse was busy thinking about Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadows recently. Remember when she had mentioned that Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadows aren’t such a new item?

urban+decay+cream+eye+shadow

As I recall it these were around a good deal ago. Same packaging, same creamy texture, and a few of the same colors too I think! Of course, I didn’t mind a rerun as they turned out damn well this second time around. But I couldn’t help but wonder what exactly was different about these new shadows, if anything?!

Jump ahead to finally hear the mystery solved!

I remember having an Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadow in Midnight Cowboy many moons ago and another shade the name of which escapes me at the moment and of course when they re-released these I couldn’t help but wonder had anything changed? I also realized that MANY of you were wondering the same thing as I’ve gotten dozens of emails asking me, “Please Muse what’s the difference between this version and the old version?”.

Urban+Decay+Cream+Eye+Shadow+1

Turns out I’ve finally solved the mystery! The new version of these shadows have “silicone technology”. Clever right? Who knows what the hell that is….I had to do a little homework and from what I understand the shadows do indeed have a brand new formula that has a special silicone texture which lets you blend well before it stays put. Another words these shadows stay “wet” and “creamy” a heck of alot longer than normal cream shadows so it gives you plenty of time to blend it up before it dries down.

Urban+Decay+Cream+Eye+Shadow+2

This makes perfect sense as the texture is indeed an interesting loosely packed cream formula which doesn’t dry down right away. I both love and hate this because 1. it does make it easier to blend and 2. it kinda makes it a little bit difficult too! It’s all about packing on the right amount of color so you aren’t left with a streaky mess!

Anyway!

That’s the mystery solved in case you were wondering what it is that was different about this release and the past release.

MAC Hello Kitty Video

For your trippy pleasure, MAC Hello Kitty Collection video:


Skip ahead to hear my thoughts on it!

I swear I wish I had a tab of acid I could slap back because that would seriously give me the full on experience of watching the MAC Hello Kitty video.

For serious.

It’s trippy enough mind you but acid would really give it a certain edge dontcha think? Didn’t those dudes in the big Hello Kitty heads remind you of the Pyramid Heads from Silent Hill? Shudder! For a second there I was thinking things were going to get sexual as they looked ready to rip that blond chick’s clothes off. Omg when did Hello Kitty become so scary?

hello+kitty

That’s some seriously trippy stuff even without the acid.

What do you think?

Loves it?

Leaves it?

Scares me Muse!!!!!
