I reviewed L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara for you several weeks ago. At the time I had to go as far as Sweden to snag myself one as it wasn’t yet available within the US. Here’s the beauty news of the day, you can now grab it up for yourself at your local drugstore as it’s hit US shores.
So you know by now all your favorite beauty brands are out there in Twitter-land tweeting away about life, the universe, and everything. I should hope by now you’re followin’ ‘em and talking to them daily as they are a friendly lot.
But did you also know that your fav brands are bloggin’ it to? More and more brands are beginning to take on the world of blogging. It’s a social marketing media-fest as brands Tweet, Facebook, mySpace, and Blog their way through the Internet. It’s a great way of getting some one on one time with your fav brands.

Oh it’s beginning to look alot like Christmas. Ok, maybe not but it’s never to early to start planning and plotting pressies for family, friends, and most important for ME!
Is that terribly selfish?
As for this Muse she’s busy looking through deets about the Philosophy Holiday Collection 2009. Most years I overindulge in Philosophy for not only myself but as gifts for friends and family as they make such delightful little sets for the holidays.
Jump ahead for a look at what Philosophy has in store for you this Holiday!
The Muse never woke up one morning and though, “Gee, I really want to smell like Kat Von D!” but she admits it’s coming to that now. I don’t watch L.A. Ink and I’m not planning on getting ink myself…something about needles that terrify me…but I still find myself stalking everything Kat Von D does with her color cosmetic line and now her brand new fragrance line.
My latest ode to Kat? The new Kat Von D Solid Perfume Ring, please sir might I have one of these flashy flower do-dads for my pretty ring finger?

The Cut has all the deets on Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl Inspired Collection available at Target shortly.
The line will be in stores and online from September 13 to October 17th so one assumes it’s a limited edition line up but chances are you’ll catch it at your local Target’s clearance wrack if the Muse has anything to say about it. Consisting of nineteen looks inspired by several of our favorite Gossip Girl characters, the line does leave a little bit to be desired in my eyes.
Gossip from The Cut says that Target Executives can’t handle the heat and aren’t wanting to associate the collection with Gossip Girl as the series is just a little too racy. Ahem…you think? But boy do I adore all that countless acts of badness, makes me want to be a mean girl too!
No worries big wig execs the Muse finds the entire line very innocent and girlish nothing I see here would S and B even think about wearing to bed never mind out on the streets of the Upper West Side.
As for this Muse I’m unsure if Anna Sui has even seen the likes of Gossip Girl prior to slapping this collection together. So not feeling the love and thinking it’s more drab than fab at this point. It’s ok, I wasn’t really wanting to take on the world of Gossip Girl fashion anyway.
Here’s a few images from the line but a peep at the various looks at The Cut and let me know what you think.
How’s Monday treating you? My Monday has been a nightmare. It’s a busy time at work plus I’m kinda feeling my way around WordPress at the moment. You may have noticed some of our comments got lost in the move on older posts.
So sorry about that as we’ve had some bloody good blatter in the last few years haven’t we? Oh well guess we’ll just have to make some new memories together.
Why don’t we start out those memories with a new Musings for today!
Today’s Musings is a favorite topic of mine since I get asked the question alot. Are my friends as into makeup as I am?
Hmmmm….how about you?
Your mates as heavily into makeup as you are?
Maybe they are more into it than you are?
Tell the Muse all about it and jump ahead for my answer.
The Muse wonders if the romance of Paris can be captured in a single bottle of fragrance and the answer is yes with Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Eau de Parfum.
Like the rose, Paris is about the romance, elegance, and sophistication of a city that has the charm of a small quaint village. The romance and softness of the rose and the beautiful city come together in this beautiful floral blend that’s sure to please those who like feminine perfume blends.
Jump ahead for the a review on Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne.
Excuse me DuWop but when will your new Private Red Lipstick ever come back into stock at Sephora?
Oh how I yearn for it!
Although I should be ever so tired of the color-changing lipstick and gloss rage I can’t help but feel that special WANT feeling when I laid eyes on DuWop Private Red Lipstick. The formula adapts to each person’s unique body chemistry and adjusts accordingly to provide a killer perfect red shade.
Yes, yes I do believe it’s been said and done before but I’m laying bets this one could prove more pigmented and gorgeous than all the rest making it the fairest of them all!
Now if Sephora would just listen to my need and get it in stock already.
Just between us, I’ve been the queen of cheap lately. I’m not sure what brought on my sudden cheapieness but I’m thinking it’s a few things. At first I thought it might be the economy, after that it was the recession. Finally I’ve decided that cheaphood comes from 1. having way too much makeup and 2. just wanting to simplify things and keep it simple.
You like simple, natural, cheap makeup? Oh you do, do you. Me too.
That’s why I’m all about the brand new Korres Natural Beauty Necessities.
