Here’s an affordable tool you might want to add to your beauty arsenal:

The SpinLash!

SpinLash is a revolving brush that coats each of your lashes (both lower and upper) with mascara while avoiding clumping! If you have a problem with clumping this be the tool for you!

Picture+457

I don’t really have much of a problem with clumping but I must admit that this definately does a mighty fine job of grabbing each lash and coating it in mascara plus not only separating my lashes but adding nice volume at the same time.

I was a bit scared of placing a spinning brush anywhere near my eye area however it works basically the same way your regular wand would aside from the fact it rotates. The bristles revolve all the way around in a gentle, slow motion not only coating your lashes with your mascara but also curling them up and out plus separating them and adding volume.

The SpinLash is only $14.95 USD and comes with it’s own mascara however, in my humble opinion, the best part of this product is you’re able to use it with your own mascara! For me that’s a total plus!

The mascara this comes with isn’t too bad and hey it’s free so no rants from me about that however I prefer using the unit with my own mascara. I tried it with it’s own mascara plus my Majorca Majolica mascara. I was astounded with the results I got when using it with the MJ Mascara. MJ adds super volume to my lashes anyway but when used it in conjunction with the SpinLash I was impressed with the glamorous look of my lashes!

The brush on the SpinLash is soft rubber which makes for easy clean up. I used it and proceeded to dunk it in alcohol and wipe clean after use. The mascara came off fairly easy plus it prepped the brush for my next use.

The positive experience of having one product to not only curl my lashes but also apply product with the added benefits of separating my lashes and adding extra volume is definately a likey for the Muse! Whether this will completely do away with my beloved lash curler remains to be seen but it’s definately worth checking out for yourself plus you can’t really go wrong for the price!

The SpinLash in Action!

If you’re Asian and you’re plagued with short, stubby lashes this might be the tool for you as the unit does a good job of grabbing the lashes and pulling them up and out!

All in all it’s an interesting tool and worth trying out for yourself!

The SpinLash is available for purchase now at www.SpinLash.com

Friday Night with Doctor Who

I have to stay home and stop my entire life on Friday night as the good Doctor is appearing on my telly screen April 18th! Cancel everything! Clear my schedule!

Just a friendly non cosmetic note from the Muse that Doctor Who, Season 4, returns on the Sci/Fi Channel Friday night (I’m gasping for breath in excitement)!

Set your Tivos!

Does it gives you tingles when he says, “I’m the Doctor, I’m a Timelord!” or is it only me?

ya ya I know how annoying Catherine Tate is but what can you do!

Remind yourself how funny she can be by watching this clip:

It’s so difficult to choose who wins for most annoying…Catherine..Kylie..Catherine…Kylie…DO NOT WANT! Can it be Rose time again? Billie where iz you the Muse misses you! Put me out of my bloody misery pleaze! I’d settle for Sarah Jane Smith in her 80′s at this point!

If you’re not feeling David you can always take a blast through the past with the Muse’s very favorite Doctor, the one, the only Mr Tom Baker!

No one can replace the quirk that Tom Baker brought to the Doctor!

The hardest regeneration I went through! *sniff*

The Doctor is, was, and always will be Muse Approved!

Sorry sometimes you have to suffer through some of these Non Cosmetic, Geeky Bits that the Muse loves so much now back to our regularly scheduled Cosmetic Babblings…….

Ghost Hunters Return: Uh Oh Another One of Those Non-Cosmetic Posts

%3Bl%3Bll

w00t! Ghost Hunters returned tonight!

The Muse has set the Tivo and recorded every juicy minute (when I’ll get a sec to watch it is anyone’s guess!)!

Don’t get me wrong I’ve been enjoying Ghost Hunters International but I was missing Tango in a major way! The Muse crushes on Tango in a rather strange way! What’s not the like? He stutters slightly, he’s twitchy as hell, and he looks like he might fall over if I blow on him but hey he hunts ghosts that’s enough for the Muse! I met Tango at a geeky Fangoria style convention about a year and a half ago and can I tell you he’s as neurotic in real life as he is on the telly but still damn cute! Sadly, I don’t have pics as I was being as neurotic as he is when I met him! I may have even developed some sorta stutter! Imagine if I met a real celebrity? I’d fall over and have convulsions!

So an anonymous poster had posted in my Lestat blog and said that “she loves the random geeky bits…” I can’t begin to tell you how properly chuffed I was when I read that! I got that warm, fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach and I felt like I had accomplished something for the geeks of the world! YES I’ve evolved and become not only your makeup guru but your geek god! I rock!

Kidding.

Seriously I was super proper happy that she was enjoying content that was geeky in nature minus the cosmetic side.

Thus this particular post came alive after I got her comment because I sincerely want to share the joys of the Ghost Hunters with possible fans in Cosmetic Land.

Granted Ghost Hunters has gone from somewhat scary to “oh my god this is so fake” to “wow Jason looks strange being bald and all and having a beard” to “warning: Purely for entertainment purposes only”.

I’m saddened by the fact that Ghost Hunters has taken the commercial path and choose endorsement over science. I’m not a big believer in ghosts in all honesty (I am a believer in aliens if that counts?!) but during the first season of Ghost Hunters they had me slightly believing that maybe just maybe it was true. But it slowly went downhill soon after and I was unable to take much of it seriously. Over the course of it’s run I’d say it was from being sorta believable to being hopelessly full of bologna!

Anyway even if it is for entertainment purposes I still enjoy it in a major way! I’m actually quite saddened the team has dwindled down so much and all the awesome people I enjoyed laughing at (Brian anyone?) are long gone.

However, at least I get to see Brian and Barry make fools of themselves in England, Scotland, Etc…Seriously what’s better then Brian in England running around like an idiot!

The team has since added that Kris or Chris chick who I find deeply annoying! The original cast is pretty much null and Jason, Grant, Steve, and Tango are all that remains but I get my kicks where I can and enjoy it even minus half the originals.

Personally the Muse wants a show named Ghost Hunters Dave Tango Style but I doubt it’ll happen but if you want to start a petition give a yell!

Love GH?
Hate it?
Heart Tango?

Tell the Muse!

Lestat’s Return: Babblings of an Un-Cosmetic Nature

lestat.dieyoung

Here’s one for the Lestat fans (there have to be one or two of you out there in cosmetic land).

It appears Anne Rice is returning to her roots and giving Lestat some much needed air to breath, he’s been buried up in his tomb for far too long and many of his fans miss him (the Muse does!). Anne Rice spoke to Time Magazine recently and promises one more book for Lestat.

It interests me she’ll be breathing life back into Lestat but I fear for Lestat’s return as from the article’s tone it appears Lestat will be released back into the head storm of Anne Rice’s religious hurricane (I’m an atheist, no I’m not, yes I am, no I’m not!)!

If you’ve been buried under a rock for 12 years or you’re just not a big reader you probably haven’t noticed the lack of blood dripping from Anne Rice novels as of late. That’s simply because Anne Rice is no longer an atheist and “re-found” the catholic church. In short terms, this meant she’d buried the Vampire Chronicles and ‘the evil” it created for her and she’d take on the new adventure of writing about Christ’s life. I can’t make this stuff up it’s all completely true. A lady that was writing about Sleeping Beauty in Bondage a few years ago is now a hardcore Christian…I dunno..whatever floats your boat I guess…stranger things have happened right?

I haven’t been a fan of Anne in a while in all honesty. Her work began a downward spiral a very long time ago and Lestat had long since lost his ability to speak to me since…god…who knows a very long time ago.

I’ve done my duty, as a good fan, and read through everything she’s put out (with much difficulty) over the course of the last several years. Reading Memnoch was at times comparable to root canal surgery with a rusty drill!

I guess we do that from time to time with someone we love reading (King is a good example). We fall under the illusion that the next book out will surely recapture the intense feeling we experienced when we originally read the author’s first book. But it’s never really the case is it?

Lestat’s return won’t happen for a few more years yet I imagine (even the article states as much) but I’ll keep some sort of hope (not a high hope…) alive that he might make a colorful reappearance in her next novel! Who knows maybe Lestat will learn to communicate on the same level with Anne that he used to before Anne went off on her trip to Never Never Land without him.

The Muse looks forwards to the gentleman vampire’s return (even though my gut tells me it’s going to be a very weird trip)!

Cheers Lestat de Lioncourt! High hopes for one last big bang before you disappear off the literary circuit for good.

By the way if you’re really missing the goth you can always appease your hunger by reading Christopher Rice’s dribble…that’s not quite root canal surgery…it’s more alone the lines of brain surgery while you’re fully awake!

Yay!
