Musings of the Day: Money for Nothing

Musings

Money for nothing and your chicks for free! Well…hmmm….in this case it’d be money for nothing and your makeup for free!


So if someone handed you a $100 bucks right now what would you splurge on? Has to be makeup sorry rules are rules!

Unquestionably I’d spend it on the Bobbi Brown Runway Kit at Neimans! I’m simply gagging for that palette but I blew a majority of my Spring budget so I have to be good and wait. Anyone wanna give me a $100 bucks?

What would you indulge in?

Musings of the Day: I Hate It but She Loves It!

musings

What are some products you simply hate that other people love…..you know the ones that everyone raves on and on about but you just don’t understand why they love it so much!?

Jump ahead to hear mine!

Two products that come to mind for the Muse are MAC Fluidline and the Bare Escentuals Foundation Kit.

There are SO many better options around than MAC Fluidline! I think it’s ok but the way people rave on and on and on about how amazing it is really makes me sit and puzzle…??? What am I missing? It applies streaky and I have to sit and reline it…it’s just not that great…..

And jeez if one more person tells me how great the BE Foundation Kit is I may scream! I tried it three times! That’s right, three times! I purchased the kit on three occasions and every time I ended up feeling like I may itch my skin off! Gawd! It’s terribly itchy and it makes me feel like I have a mask on! Hates it!

How about you?

What product or products do you hate that the rest of the world absolutely loves?

Musings of the Day: Purchasing Power!

musings

Ok people. Come on! Help your economy out here! Buy more makeup!

Jump ahead to find out what my next cosmetic purchase will be!

If I can find the bloody thing my next purchase will be Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer!

But hello impossible to find! I’ve seen it in CVS but sadly ever single color was sold out! Grrrr! And I’m so not asking one of the brain dead employees if they have any more in stock because it might turn into an Easter Egg Hunt. Turns out you don’t actually need a brain to work at CVS…go figure (no offense to the people with brains who work at CVS. No CVS employees were harmed in the making of this post).

Anyway, I seriously NEED this concealer! I know I’ll be disappointed but I still wants it!

How about you?

What’s your next makeup purchase?

Spill it!

Musings of the Day: Packaging Rat

tag orange

When you buy new makeup be it MAC or anything else, do you keep the boxes and packaging it comes with?

Are you a pack rat?

The Muse normally keeps special items in their boxes. And sometimes she even keeps packaging for expensive brands, for example all my Givenchy blushes and shadow quads are kept in their boxes even if they aren’t LE. MAC boxes I normally toss unless it’s a special packaging like FAFI or Barbie, etc…

I used to keep Bobbi Brown in all the packaging but lately I toss it out even LE palettes I find that I toss the boxes which surprises me considering how anal I am about my cosmetic collection.

Crummy packaging, even if the item is LE, normally gets tossed. For example Urban Decay’s sometimes has cruddy plastic packaging on LE items and I just toss that out. I also do this with LE Japanese brands products such as KATE palettes that are LE…the packaging is just plastic so I normally toss it, same for Lavshuca.

I actually wish I can get out of keeping boxes and packaging because it’s such a hassle to store, organize, and even find items I’m looking for when everything is in little boxes.

I guess this makes me a bit of a packaging rat and a bit of a tosser depending on brands and such!

How about you?

Packaging rat?

No way! I toss it!

I’m such a makeup geek so I’m of course loving this Musing!

So spill it…just single shadows….How many MAC shadows do you have in your stash?

Find out my answer after the jump!

Just counting my singles, not my doubles or my palettes, I was surprised to learn I don’t have nearly as many MAC single eye shadows as I thought I did!
