Musings of the Day: The Makeup Bag

tag pink

This actually isn’t as hard a question as I thought it would be when I was originally writing it out…Jump ahead to read why!

When I first asked myself What was the most important thing in my makeup bag? I started to panic! How could I just pick one thing? But than I realized, wait a sec, I don’t carry a slew of cosmetics with me in my bag anyway so what am I so worried about?

If I had to pick thing it would be cheek stain. It’s completely multitasking so I can give a hint of color to my cheeks and lips and at the very least I look healthy and fresh so it’s probably the most important item in my bag. Although my makeup doesn’t last all day, my skin is very clear so I don’t need to keep touching up with powder or foundation. I chew my gloss off almost an hour after it’s on so it’s important to keep one stashed away but I find that once it’s off I get too busy to actually reapply so unless I am going out after work I don’t retouch it. I carry a compact mirror but that’s honestly available anywhere…in my car, in a bathroom, etc..where can’t you find a mirror nowadays right?

So stain it is icon wink Works on my cheeks and lips and makes me go from dull to lovely!

How about you? What’s the most important thing in your makeup bag?

Tell the Muse!

Musings of the Day: Possession Obsession

musingsoftheday

Do you hate your friends digging into your cosmetics? Can’t stand when your mate tries to use your favorite gloss? Absolutely abhor the idea of anyone touching your beloved stash?

I probably fall into the possessive category with my cosmetics but than again none of my friends are as obsessed about makeup as I am but I still don’t like them digging through my collection or swatching it or lord knows even using it! I guess I’m a greedy girl that doesn’t share her toys well!

How about you?

Are you possessive with your makeup or maybe it doesn’t bother you if someone touches or uses your stash?

Musings of the Day: Leaves It!

qotd

This is a hard one because the Muse has never found a brand of cosmetic that she didn’t like but she thought hard about it and here are a few that kinda sorta don’t tickle my fancy!

  • Sephora Brand

We all know and love Sephora but the Muse doesn’t feel any great love for the Sephora brand cosmetics. I’ve purchased a few bits and pieces but I’m always somewhat disappointed with whatever I buy and honestly for the quality I think it’s a tad bit over priced.

  • Laura Mercier

Heck I love Laura! I think the Laura Mercier Flawless Face Kit was incredible! However, I do visit the counter and just pass by on a majority of the offerings. I find it a tiny bit boring in all honesty….

  • Shiseido

I bow to the gods of Shiseido! But did you ever notice a majority of my Shiseido collection is from branch off brands within Japan such as Majorca Majolica? I never really indulge my need for Shiseido at my local counter. I dunno why but I really never found anything that Shiseido US offers that I absolutely must have aside from their killer face cotton!

I’m trying to think of more but hells knows this is a tough question for the Muse who loves just about anything and everything about cosmetics!

How about you? Which brands just don’t interest you!

Tell the Muse!
