Musings of the Day: Happy Fall Ya’ll!

Halloween Musings of a Muse

I got rather excited this morning when I saw new Bath and Body Works Halloween Pocketbacs popping up on blogs! OMG! I really LOVE Halloween. Some people love Christmas but my Christmas is Halloween! It’s my absolute FAVORITE holiday and I look forward to celebrating it every year.

After seeing those new Pocketbacs I realized we are mid month now and within two weeks or so some of our favorite shops will start stocking Halloween goodies.

What sort of Halloween beauty goodies do you haul during the holiday?

What are you looking forward to shop?

Here’s a list of things I’m looking forward too!

Musings of the Day: What Brand Do You Want Bringing Your BB Cream To You?

BB Creams Blemish Balm Creams

Dr. Jart recently launched two BB Creams to the US Market available exclusively at Sephora. This is a big step for the US market however sadly, my experience so far with BB Creams here in the US is lacking.

Dr. Jart, BRTC, Missha, Skin79, etc…are all popular BB Creams available in Korea and household names however larger brands we all know and love also have BB Creams available within the Asian market such as Dior, MAC, Lancome, etc….

This Summer, I believe you’ll start seeing the ripple effect of Dr. Jart’s US launch. It’ll be small at first but by Fall, BB Creams will finally be something that the US market will know of and hopefully embrace.

I already have confirmed news that Smashbox has a BB Cream of sorts that will be available exclusively from QVC. I also hear rumors of MAC finally bringing their BB Cream to the states and also a whisper about Clinique possibly launching one.

My question is, which brand would you like to see release a BB Cream here in the US?

Perhaps your favorite high end brands like Dior and Chanel?

Or maybe middle end brands such as Urban Decay or Too Faced?

Or maybe you want to hit up your local drugstore and grab one from Revlon or Covergirl?

Either way BB Creams are finally launching here in the US but whether or not our market actually embraces them or not only time will tell.

Musings of the Day: How FAR Are You Willing to Go For Beauty?

Have you met Queenie? That’s her behind the yellow mask there. She’s one of those inspirational people that makes you remember why you love life so much.

What’s the mask for?

Well, she’s having a skin whitening injection which is a popular since early 2010 in Taiwan and Hong Kong. It similar to a Botox injection in someways but rather than lifting skin it offers a way to whiten it temporarily.

Honestly, at prices that go from $900-$1500 I wouldn’t be so inclined to do it for mere temporary results.

Chances are you won’t see whitening injections in the US anytime since the craze for whiter skin isn’t one we embrace in the Western market plus since the local Asian governments don’t actually place restrictions on the treatments and they are done in easy to access place such as a beauty salon, well, I doubt that would go over big here but…

How FAR are you willing to go for beauty?
