Musings of the Day
You probably all know my answer to this one right?
So when you go to Sephora or your local counter do you test makeup out on yourself? On your lips? Cheeks?
As I said you probably know my answer, a big, fat NO! I refuse to put anything on my lips, cheeks, or face at counters or Sephora. If I want to test I swatch on my hand but I’m too anal to try any of it on my face. Be it at MAC, Dior, or Sephora I don’t care what counter or store I’m at, I simply won’t test any of it.
Tis my anal, germ-a-phobic nature but I’m not testing any of that stuff on my face!
How about you?
How do you test at counters?
Are you a swatcher or do you test on your face?

I’m curious how everyone will answer this Musing today! Do you set your foundation with powder? I know many if you that have oily skin will answer a solid yes but what about those of you with dry skin?
Find out my answer below!
I have dry skin a majority of the time and sometimes a little oily come Summer. For a rather long time I always applied my liquid or cream foundation and didn’t bother setting with powder aside from a teeny tiny amount down the sides of my nose. Just the last few months I started setting with powder and love the results. I still hate the fact that powder makes my dry skin all flaky in certain places but I love the fresher, cleaner look of my makeup thanks to the powder and the fact that it makes my foundation last a bit longer.
What about you?
Do you set with powder?
I’m especially curious about to hear about those with dry skin!
Since discovering my favorite drugstore mascara I’ve wanted to shout the good word of it to all the masses…..well I already have kinda but I’ll tell you about it again after the jump!
Ok, I’m speaking of US Drugstore brands here as there are way too many awesome Japanese drugstore mascaras that rock my little world. If you choose it does have to be a US brand…those be the rules kiddies!
My choice would have to be L’oreal Double Extend Mascara, whoa I really like this stuff, sincerely. I can’t help myself but this stuff is pretty damn good. I’ve been using it daily for about a month now and simply lurve it. That’s saying something as I normally fart in the general direction of any and all drugstore mascara finds in the US, sorry if you’re a lover, I happen to be a leaver. But Double Extend changed my very life and made me a believer that great mascaras may still dwell within a US drugstore….
Brb I think I just heard an angel sing!
Name your fav mascara.
Remember US brands only, no cheating and playing with the big guns, we all know Japanese drugstore mascara rocks it so you must choose a US brand…if you can that is….
It’ll be hard but I have confidence that you can do it!

Fest up peeps! Do you leave your house without makeup on? Foundation-less? Gasp! Not a stitch of blush on your cheeks!? No lipgloss!?
Find out if I do after the jump!
If I’m running errands or just hanging out with friends my normal makeup wear is a bit of moisturizer, concealer, and cheek stain. That’s about it. I don’t do mascara, gloss, lipstick, shadow, etc……
How about you?

My Musings of the Day was brought on suddenly after watching a video from FloridaSweety on youTube.
Please tell me you subscribe to her videos? No? Check it below and you’ll totally understand my obsession.
Is she hysterical or what? I absolutely adore how she starts out on one topic and starts flying off the handle from topic to topic. Absolutely adored when she stops mid sentence because her cell phone starts to ring and she goes off on a tangent about how she won’t pick it up.
Lord…youTube is the best.
The moral of the story is FloridaSweety was saying how overrated MAC is and I was wondering what brand or brands do you think are terribly overrated?
Click below for my answer!
Ok, I probably have a few answers for this. Let’s see. I think NYX is big time overrated. They have alot of great stuff but the raves about how comparable they are to MAC…ummm overrated! One such example would be everyone comparing NYX shadows to MAC ummm again no I don’t think. Very nice shadows but not as good as MAC in my humblest.
It’s Monday so my brain is slow today and I’m only coming up with the one brand…so throw some my way!
Which brand or brands are completely overrated?
