Musings of the Day: Choose It Wisely!

musings

Oh my god how painful would it be if you could only select from one, single makeup brand? If you had to choose one single brand which would it be?

Jump ahead for the Muse’s choice!

Asking me to choose a single brand is like taking the color right out of my life. It would be too difficult to settle on just one but what if I had to? What if I had absolutely no choice and had to select from only, one single brand? Which would I choose?

Of course, I was leaning towards MAC because it has the most variety plus has a pretty nice user friendly price tag! But….I actually changed my mind quickly and decided on…..

Drum roll please!

Bobbi Brown.

I choose Bobbi because she has plenty of collections that release almost as often as MAC but with alot less fanfare so I’m not left feeling like I absolutely have to have everything released. I also feel as I get older the colors released from Bobbi Brown Collections are way more friendly and easier to use for evening or day looks.

I was thinking if I choose MAC, as cheap as it is, I’d probably end up going for heaps more money as I always want everything from their releases. Plus on top of that as I got older, if I had to settle for the one brand for life, I think that Bobbi Brown would be best as MAC would be a bit too loud for me at say 80!

So, if I had to settle on a single brand, I’d go with Bobbi Brown!

How about you?

If you had to choose only one single brand to purchase from for your entire life which would it be?

Choose wisely.

Musings of the Day: MAC Site

musigns

I think this is a rather awesome Musing of the day so tell me whatcha think!

Do you love or leave the new MAC site?

Tell me all about and click below for my take!

Ok, so I’ve been thinking about this really, really hard (without busting a blood vessel I promise) and I remember how much I liked and enjoyed playing around with the MAC site when it was first updated. I mean it’s kinda ingenious being able to search by color and having the color options in every single available product etc….

But…well…the novelty wore off and I really, really, really, really miss the old design. For example, if I’m logging on just to have a quick look at a new collection it’s so difficult to navigate because the collection pages go by so quickly…or maybe I’m not clicking fast enough?

On top of that the black background drowns out the actual photos of the products. Plus one click brings another sliding frame and after that another frame appears…and I begin to feel like a n00b on the Internetz for the first time. What the hell?

I dunno it’s just too many bells and whistles and I just loved the simplicity of the old site.

Please MAC bring it back?

What do you think?

Absolutely adore the new site?

Want the old site back?

Want a new site but a little more organized and a little less fanfare?

How would you improve it?

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?

Tell the Muse!

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!

Click to find out more about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer.

How about you?

What’s your next makeup purchase?

Spill it!
