Musings of the Day: Put It On Ice! Makeup Fridge!

A long time ago in a land not so far away, I fell in love with Lush but like all good fairy tales, evil lurked around the corner. As fabulous as Lush skincare is, much of it needs to remain fresh, particularly the face masks. So you have to kinda go the extra mile with storage of your Lush…..could prove irritating for some or not a big deal for others. Lush Fresh Facial Masks have to be stored in your fridge and heck in some cases many cosmetic items should be put on ice really to keep them fresh particularly those purchased at Lush.

If you live with a boy chances are you aren’t wanting to store your Lush in your fridge for fear he’ll walk into the living room, munching on it, and proceed to tell you what an incredible cook you are. Horror!

Which brings me to today’s Musings….

Do you store your makeup or skincare in the fridge along with your yogurt and stale bread?

What sort of cosmetics are in your fridge?

Do I store mine in the fridge?

Musings of the Day: The Makeup Graveyard, Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, Here Lays Some Old Makeup I Wouldn’t Trust!


Ahh the makeup graveyard…

It’s where long dead cosmetics go to rest in peace. It’s where that new lipstick that looks so amazing in the store but ended up not being so great at home goes to lay its weary head. It’s where that blush you absolutely LOVED last month resides when it’s replaced with that new blush that’s the hottest shade of the season.

Count me wasteful but I rarely return cosmetics because 1. I hate the hassle of doing so. Seriously, even with a receipt don’t SA’s treat you like a criminal when you have to exchange or return something you don’t like? And 2. I hate returning makeup I used, I dunno…seems weird to want my money back for something I already tried out. I feel guilty somehow.

So what happens to all this makeup I’m not using or stuff that’s old or stuff that’s been replaced with the next best thing in my makeup world?

Musings of a Muse: Is the Honeymoon Over?

I dunno about you but I have periods in my beauty and skincare life when the honeymoon is over.

Dig?

No?

Well….

You know that fresh from the package excitement you get when you purchase some new bit of makeup or skincare? The type of excitement that has you convinced that the product is changing the way you look, the way you feel, the way your skin looks, etc…..I swear I have a honeymoon period with every single makeup item and skincare product I’ve ever purchased. This is the time where I proceed to promise said product how I’ll love it for ever and ever and ever and how I’ll never cheat on it and how thankful I am to it for making my face look flawless or making my lips look fuller…

Ahh yes the honeymoon period is such a joyous time.

But like all good relationships the honeymoon periods ends.
