A Little Bit About My QVC All Access Beauty Picks

The Muse on QVC

Set your Tivo because starting Friday, May 10th at 11PM EST QVC All Access Beauty starts off with 25 full hours devoted entirely to beauty. I’m actually away this weekend so I’ll have to be sure to set up my recorder in case I miss anything I absolutely have to have!

This exciting event will feature breakthrough products, special values and beauty tips straight from the faces behind the brands like Kate Somerville, Mally Roncal, Ken Paves, Chaz Dean, Jamie Kern Lima and more.

Beauty gadgets, skincare, makeup, and more from your favorite brands like Laura Geller, Philosophy, Tarte, Bobbi Brown, Mally Beauty, etc…etc…will be all featured during the All Access Beauty premiere.

As you know
QVC actually asked me to pick out 12 products that I absolutely love and use daily. Some of you asked, “12? How the heck did you keep it to 12?” I know right? QVC must be mental thinking they can trust me to pick JUST 12 products. But I did it and I’m quite proud of myself and I’m welcoming pats on the back for being so awesome about picking a mere 12 products….!

I didn’t really have to put a lot of thought into those 12 products because they are staples of what I use daily or products I reach for a whole lot. I thought I’d share why I choose some of these products and what makes them so special so jump ahead to take a peek!


the Muse’s 5 Fav Indie Shops

Do you shop Indie?

Indie shops are a celebration in creativity. Most of them are owned by a single person who basically puts their heart into creating either makeup, bath and body products, or skincare just for the joy of doing so, this would be the thing that makes Indie shops so very special. But let’s not forget in many cases Indie products are extremely unique and inexpensive!

Here’s Five of my Fav Indie Shops.



5 Shades of Korres Cherry Full Color Gloss You Should Own

Korres Cherry Full Color Gloss has the knack for creating the perfect MLBB (my lips but better) experience every single time I wear it. I own quite a few shades of this fabulous gloss and really enjoy the formula but I think it’s the shades that really rock my lipgloss life.

Some of the color range is outstanding and many of the shades have become HG in my makeup bag.

Here are 5 Shades of Korres Cherry Full Color Gloss I think you should own (if you don’t already as a fellow Korres fan!).



5 Must Try Concealers

Ahhh concealer. If there is anything I like more than color cosmetics it would be concealer. I’ve been on a mission to find the best concealer in this universe for years now. My concerns pretty much consist of concealing mega dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.

Believe you me I’ve tried plenty of concealers and known the ins and outs of many of ’em. Here are 5 Must Try Concealers from the Muse as in you MUST try them.

Check out the reviews of the concealers featured in this slideshow (If you’re reading from RSS please visit my blog to see the slideshow)!

A Few Of Oprah’s Favorite Things: Are They A Few Of Your Favorite Things?

How awesome is it when Oprah does her Favorite Things episode? I swear I love seeing all those chicks in the audience going buck freaking wild when she says she’s giving them a tin of popcorn or a moisturizer, I mean you get the same reaction with the popcorn as you do when she says she’s giving away a free car. It’s screaming and tears and sobbing and OMGZZZZZZZ all over the damn place, hells some people fall down and convulse in excitement. Popcorn, car, whatever it’s Oprah and those women are all about Oprah and the swag!

Today, I was reading Bargain Swaps for Oprah’s Favorites on Total Beauty and I was wondering HOW many of those favorite things match up with my own?

Jump ahead to take a little quiz to see how many of Oprah’s favs are some of yours!
