We all have flaws that bother us. Some folks have skin woes, some want to lose weight, some hate their unruly hair, etc…..As women we nitpick our features apart and yearn to change everything and anything.
But let’s get really personal and discuss hair. As in confess hairy situations……
Beauty confession time….
I was thinking about my many a trip and adventure through Sephora this morning. I noticed that every single time I hit up the mall or I walk past Time Square or 34th, I can’t pass a Sephora without walking in for a little lookiee. I wonder if this means I need some sort of intervention or worst therapy?
Picture the Muse laying on some shrink’s couch telling them, “Well it’s like this Doc, I can’t seem to pass by a Sephora without walking inside, it’s a compulsion of mine!”
Worst yet…I think I’m one of those people that hangs out at Sephora! GASP!
The Muse went to an all girl’s high school and once a month we all had to assemble in the gym, wait in line, and proceed to sit down with one of four priests to confess our sins. I swear confessing my naughty deeds was the most difficult thing ever. I admit that on occasion I’d make up things like, “I took the Lord’s name in vain…” just so I could get out of there really fast…honestly, I wasn’t going to tell him what I was really up to!
Now as embarrassing as it is to sit and confess all my cheek to a priest I have no such reservations confessing my beauty mishaps to you.
Brushes. Brushes are so very important to makeup application. I have a slew of brushes since many I got in kits and of course I went a little buck wild purchasing a slew of MAC brushes when I first got into the brand.
Although I must confess…
Jump ahead to hear my beauty confession.
I haven’t washed mine in over a month. Oh my god I’m so ashamed of myself. Eep! I normally give them a proper wash with MAC Brush Cleaner at least every three weeks but after I went on holiday and came back it’s been well over a month since I cleaned them since I’ve been terribly busy. Indeed, a gross and possibly bacteria filled beauty confession.
I’ve sinned. Forgive me?
When was the last time you washed your brushes?
How often do you wash ’em?
Oh hai! I’m the Muse and I have a beauty confession for you today (I’ll be sharing more beauty confessions with you soon but you’ll have to wait and be patient).
You know those little mesh hanging sponges that you use in the shower with your fav shower gel or wash?
I have a beauty confession about those little guys!
Jump ahead to read it!
So the Muse is so anal that she tosses these sponges out every three weeks. I know, I know I can totally get more use out of them than a mere three weeks but…..
The story goes like this….
I dunno remember what I was watching or where but it was this beauty documentary somewhere, someplace and on this doc they mentioned how many germs and how much bacteria grow in your shower and within sponges, toothbrushes, etc…of course we all knew that already but it freaked me out so much that I toss those little sponge meshes out every three weeks. Indeed, I do this religiously.
So you might be the frugal type and thinking gosh she’s insane all that money for the sponge and she’s tossing it? Turns out the Muse’s mother is the dollar store Queen of Manhattan. I. hate. dollar. stores. with. a. passion. I hate them but my mum loves them with a passion. The lady sniffs out every single dollar store within a quarter of a mile radius and attacks. She adores dollar stores with a passion and will proceed to call me to rave about her awesome hauls from said locations. Personally the Muse won’t step a foot into one but lucky for her that her mum is indeed the dollar store Queen which means that said dollar store Queen tells the Muse to buy bulk mesh sponges for a buck at the local dollar store. Well, wow, awesome! Who knew? Now I feel less guilty about tossing out my bacteria ridden mesh sponges!
That was rather a long confession wasn’t it? You know you love me.
Go ahead confess your beauty!
The Muse is listening!
