favorites

Ahhh tools!  Anyone that does some sort of trade has a set of tools.  Mechanics, Carpenters, and of course, most important, Make Up Artists.   These tools are used to sometimes fix something or create something entirely new.

Although I’m not a make up artist I still have my fair share of beauty tools that I favor each and everyday to apply my makeup and create my eye looks.

As the New Year starts, take a step back with me as I look through some of my very favorite beauty tools.

Some of my favs were released in 2009 while others are old favorites that continue to impress me and make my list year after year so expect to see new and old favs pop up on each list.

And let the Muse’s Year End Review commence with the Muse’s Fav Blushes from 2009.

The Ghost of Christmas Past Collections 2009 Edition

“Are you the Spirit, sir, whose coming was foretold to me?” asked Scrooge.

“I am!”

The voice was soft and gentle.  Singularly low, as if instead of being close beside him, it were at a great distance.

“Who, and what are you?” Scrooge demanded.

“I am the Ghost of Christmas Past.”

And tonight the Ghost of Christmas Past joins us here and takes us through a journey of Holidays Collections that have long since past but are still remembered and enjoyed!

Take the jump through the past!

10 MAC Lip Glosses You Should Own

mac+lipglass

Somehow, someway MAC Lipgloss wiggled it’s way into my heart. My first try with MAC gloss was a nightmare and I ended up hating it for ever after because of the terribly sticky, tacky formula. As you know I’ve since made peace with the formula and even give it props for being tacky enough to stay in place for hours at a time.

I’m now the pride owner of one too many MAC lip glosses. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Who knows but the fact remains I can’t get enough of them and I look forward to new shades with each release.


Check out my list below fro 10 MAC Lip Gloss shades I think you should own or at least consider adding to your collection!



MAC glosses come and go through my life as collections release. The shades you see above are ones that stick out in my mind and I consider favorites! The Muse thinks you should think about adding one or two of these colors to your collection, loves ‘em!

Anyone own any of these shades?

What are some MAC gloss shades that stick out in your mind?

Tell the Muse!
