Musings of the Day: Your Worst or Funniest Makeup Counter Experiences

The Muse is fond of biatchin’ herself a blue streak when it comes to terrible customer service but thankfully she always gets great makeup time at her fav counters at Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Saks. I’ve always had the pleasure of being treated beautifully well at counters that I purchase from. However, I do choose to deal with the same reps over and over again which could account for the good service I get as they know my likes, they know I’m out to spend some money, and they just know a bit about me and who I am.

On occasion I’ve been known to run into a rep or two who is snotty or not helpful or just plain rude.

Musings of the Day: Friends or Foe?

Hey chicas!

How’s Monday treating you? My Monday has been a nightmare. It’s a busy time at work plus I’m kinda feeling my way around WordPress at the moment. You may have noticed some of our comments got lost in the move on older posts.

Sad sigh.

So sorry about that as we’ve had some bloody good blatter in the last few years haven’t we? Oh well guess we’ll just have to make some new memories together.

Why don’t we start out those memories with a new Musings for today!

Today’s Musings is a favorite topic of mine since I get asked the question alot. Are my friends as into makeup as I am?

Big junkies?

Maybe they are more into it than you are?

Tell the Muse all about it and jump ahead for my answer.

Wanna Muse?

Today’s Musings is about replenishing your stock of “things I use everyday”. You know what I mean…you reach for ‘em daily, like mascara, foundation, primer, etc….

I recently had to make a list of items I was running low on so now is a perfect time to Muse about what I need and hear what you’re running out of and need to replace.

Check it after the jump!

Musings of the Day: Who Influences Your Beauty Purchases?

You read beauty blogs, you read consumer reviews on forums and beauty sites, you read magazines, and you watch TV adverts.

Question is of all those things who is it that influences your beauty purchases the most?


Is it something that you see on your fav beauty blog? Or maybe a friend told you how you have to try out this new shampoo she loves. How about TV advertisements or magazines?

Who Influences Your Beauty Purchases?

Jump ahead to hear my influences!

For the most part I’m influenced by some of my fav beauty bloggers and also websites and the like. Say I wander onto Sephora and see something that captures my interests, that will likely cause an immediate need to purchase an item. I’m one that loves pretty pictures and the likes. If I see something advertised on a model such as items from many Bobbi Brown launches, I instantly want it as the model is always so picture perfect and flawless.

I’m also a huge follower and reader of beauty blogs so those also influence my need for product.

Forums and online communities also feed my need for beauty.

How about you?

Musings of the Day: Hold Me I’m Scared!

We haven’t mused together in such a long time. Wanna give it a go?

This is an interesting one I know, but what sorts of things simply scare the heck out you beauty wise?


Are you terrified of poking an eye out with your liquid liner? Scared you’ll over pluck your brows? Shivering in fear that your eye lash curler will give you that extra hard pinch when you capture lid skin instead of lashes with it?

Share what scares you about beauty and jump ahead for what I’m frightened of!

Mine is really simple and in my mind the most terrifying thing ever about beauty.

Oil cleansers.

I remove much of my makeup with an oil cleanser be it from Shu, Biore, or other Asian brands. I normally take to using Philosophy Purity for makeup remover but for the most part I’m an oil user as it gets my face perfectly clean.

The problem?

Fuzzy, cloudy vision.

Oh god it scares me so badly. Isn’t it the worst that your eyes are so cloudy for a few minutes after using oil cleanser?

Ugh. Worst feeling evers.

Aside from that not much else scares me beauty wise and I can’t possibly think of anything worst than walking around with fuzzy vision.

Eeep!

Share your beauty horror stories!
