Beauty Abroad: L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Collection

L%27Oreal+Paris+Studio+Secrets+Professional+Collection+007

You all suck in the UK. Ok not really I absolutely adore Britain, all hail the Queen. The point is you guys always get the good stuff. Pout! ‘Bout to have a proper Muse tantrum after seeing the new L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Collection available exclusively at Boots UK.

Oh my gods wants!

Check it after this jump.

Bjooti posted about this today and I must say it intrigues me something fierce. I’m not a huge fan of L’Oreal but they have gone and outdone themselves with this collection. We got hi-def foundation, skin brightening primer, shimmery shadow, indeed this collection looks gorg!

Dear L’Oreal Paris,

Can we has Studio Secrets Professional Collection here in the states? If you bring it I will buy.

Also I’d love you forever too!

k, bye.

Talk soon.

Well, that’s about it folks! Pretty nice right? I’m lemming a majority of it as everything looks super nice especially those primers. The price ranges aren’t too bad considering sterling is converting decently to USD at the moment although if available in the US it might be considerably lower priced with many coupon and sale options. I’m trying to sit on my hands and not jump on board asking people to haul me some as I’m wondering if Boots might go ahead and do a buy two get one sale soonish? But I know myself and I’ll jump to snag some way before that.

If you’re wanting it your options are to fly to the UK (not a terrible thing I’ll come with too!), have a friendly Brit buy some for you (check MUA, forums, etc…), or search evil-bay UK (on occasion deals do arise on the UK side of the evilness).

I must say this looks like an astoundingly good collection from L’Oreal and it’s a shame we probably won’t ever see in the US or if we do it’ll be sized down and revamped to be el suck.

What do you think?

UK’ers, anyone haulin’?

Tell it!

The Regeneration of a Most Beloved Doctor

I find it funny that my inbox has over 100 e-mails in it that are labeled “Doctor Who” in subject. I also got a few comments already as well in regards…to yes you guessed it…the new Doctor.

With all these outcries to the Muse I thought that indeed the good Doctor deserved his very own post because honestly, the regeneration of our beloved 10th deserves that at the very least right?

doctor+who+11th+doctor

I fear that I haven’t felt this badly about a regeneration since my fond favorite fourth Doctor, the great Tom Baker, regenerated into Peter Davidson. For a long time I resented Peter for taking away my girlhood crush, Tom Baker but I slowly came to love him.

So the Muse has a basic statement to release on the casting of the 11th Doctor.

Don’t Panic.

Yes, that’s it. Don’t Panic. Be a good hitchhiker and just don’t panic. If you’re a Who fan you’ve felt this way for every regeneration of every favorite Who in the last 30 years or more. We’ve all seen our favorites come and go. We’ve all mourned our favorites. I remember mourning Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, I even felt some remorse for the late, great William Hartnell. Believe it or not I became mighty attached to Christopher Eccleston as well and I thought it was god awful they were replacing him with David Tennant. Weird right?

We have something to look forward to right? Our Doctor’s personality will stay the same but with new traits and quirks. Yes, Matt Smith is virtually a no name but if you think about it David Tennant wasn’t exactly HUGE in the way of stardom either was he? At the moment Matt Smith (kinda ironic his last name is Smith…as in John Smith…) probably isn’t our top pick for the Doctor but he’s young, he’s fairly good looking, and who knows (who knows..pun intended) he may be the next best thing to David.

I think we should all remain calm and hope for the best. I have confidence that the writers will bring us a fantastic Doctor and although I mourn the loss of David I do embrace the idea of a brand new Doctor. I think David shows alot of class to pass the torch and not milk the “brand” that Doctor Who has become for all it’s worth. I think he recognized the fact that things can get old really fast and he wanted to be remembered as a great Doctor rather than a washed up Doctor. So cheers to David for making a hard choice to disembark the Tardis and make room for a new Doctor.

Chin up Who fans! We’ll be fine. We should be more worried over the fact that Catherine Zeta Jones might board the Tardis next season….now THAT worries me! You do know that she and the hub come as a package?

Wince!

There, there now. Group hug!

John Barrowman and Bill Baily on Buzzcocks

Off the topics of cosmetics temporarily icon wink

If you LOVE John Barrowman and Bill Baily as much as me you’ll adore this clip!

That’s my new catch phrase! “Talk to the hand because the wrist is pissed” hehe!

I’m not sure what had me laughing more Bill Baily with his “I ain’t never gonna be your bitch!” (But he never had a problem being Dylan Moran’s bitch now did he?! I crack myself up sometimes!) or John Barrowman completely agreeing with Simon about what a show whore he’s been of late (Dancing with Stars, Buzzcocks, Torchwood, Who, The Weakest Link, Need I go on?)!

Kylie Minogue Boards the Tardis and Ages a Few Years

For the past few years geeks within the US mourn the fact that Brits get a very special Christmas treat on the 25th.

No idea what they get on Christmas Day? That means you aren’t as dorky as the Muse is either that or you’re saying EASTENDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No it’s not Eastenders. *insert rolling eyes here*

They get a special Christmas episode of Doctor Who on the 25th of December. Damn lucky people. One more reason why the English should rule the Universe.

Since Billie Piper’s sad, sad exit (I’m still crying! I’m actually mourning for the loss of Camille Coduri aka Jackie Tyler more than anything else to be honest! I still say she’d have made a brilliant assistant in all her annoying glory!) from the show we’ve been treated to quite an array of woman traipsing through the Tardis as of late…hell even Catherine Tate and dare I say….Jennifer Saunders (Not as an assistant either my friends! I say no more for fear of ruining the surprise should it happen!).

Well, assistants come and go but the quirk of the Doctor always remains the same thankfully.

And why am I babbling about the good Doctor you might ask?

Yes let’s get to that shall we!

The Muse has scoured the undernet in hopes of locating the Christmas episode (The word on the street is Peter has recorded it for me! You remember Peter don’t you? If you’ve been with the Muse from the start you’ll know who I mean! If not click here and while you’re at it do a search for Peter and you should find a bit of info to appease!)

Well, sadly I haven’t really bothered looking hard enough but the moral of the story is that it’s quite possible that Jared Blandino may have gotten to the very cute Kylie Minogue (I’ve been told he has a special flare for aging the young!).

What.
in the.
World.

I seen the promo images for Voyage of the Damned and I must say they aren’t Kylie’s most flattering! I personally think she’s bloody gorgeous and looking quite suave for her age but whoever did her makeup and hair for the Who episode deserves to be shot down!

Granted the year is 1912, is that the year they said it was good to wash your hair with salad dressing? I can’t recall.

Seriously, her hair is a bird’s nest, rat’s nest, frizz a whizz special or whatever else you choose to call it! She quite looks like she has a wig on (and maybe does! I hope!).

Her makeup is quite ok but it appears they may have run out of concealer for both her and David!

In all seriousness I worship at the feet of David’s alter but god knows he looks much better with a pound of concealer on! I didn’t think anyone could take Tom Baker’s place in my heart as the Doctor but damn if David didn’t. But the sad, sad fact is David is quite pale and freckle laden. Which isn’t a bad thing but I’m so used to seeing the man with a ton of concealer on it’s sometimes shocking to be confronted with his real skin!

And Kylie my god the wrinkles and crow feet are scaring me. Someone hold me.

Did they run out of cash for this episode and couldn’t afford proper make-up artists? And the hair..my god the hair….

Ok so we should take into consideration that this is Doctor Who which means tons of running around after some aliens or creatures and Kylie’s hair probably suffered the consequences during all that action but I will say that Billie Piper never had a bad hair day so why should Kylie?!?!??!

David with his concealer firmly in place!

Kylie needs some help here! The hair, my god the hair! Forget the face for now woman! Do something with her hair! King of Mods maybe?!

David looking very scary minus his concealer and Kylie looking equally awful! Maybe the airbrush on photoshop was brokes!

David minus his concealer again! If I was him I’d sue BBC for posting these on the Internetz for all his adoring fans to see!

Kylie looking very…um….unKylie-like!

David looks ok thankfully but Kylie has had a better day here!

Do click to enlarge some of these because they are seriously scary! Particularly this last one!

Kylie don’t quit your day job love! Thank god Who was a one offer because lord knows it aged you at least 10 years darling!

I apologize in advance for my cruelty but these images just shocked me straight out of my shoes! However, I will say that my schedule is clear if BBC is seeking a new assistant as the Doctor most certainly needs a Muse in the Tardis even if it ages me a a couple of years! I don’t mind, honest, swear, truly! I can live without concealer!

Kylie on a good day:

P.S. Lord knows I’ve dropped to my knees in thanks that John Barrowman didn’t decide to show up for this episode! Can you imagine what they’d do to him? I shiver in fear thinking about it!
