Remember when Blinc when all about mascara primer? Well Blinc Eye Shadow Primer brings things to a new level my friends. I guess it is fitting considering how Blinc has always been about priming stuff so why not our eyeshadow?Read More...

Enjoy $6 Eyeshadows from Lorac today at www.loraccosmetics.com
Yup, six bucks!
P.S. Picture this, 2 AM, I can’t sleep, Freaks and Geeks rerun, episode Beers and Weirs, James Franco and the unicorn poster. Classic. I had a Daniel Desario in my high school (well not really, otherwise no one would have gotten much done with all that cra gorgeous running around the hallways). Only difference was he was a she as I went to an all girl’s private school, needless to say this chick spent her days completely spaced. It was incredibly entertaining. Come to think of it I can think of a person from my high school that fits the description of every one of the characters in Freaks and Geeks including myself. I guess that was why people related to the show so hardcore.
Food for though!
Happy Almost Weekend!

Hope you’re having a good week. It’s a short week thankfully! Been a rainy few days in Gotham but not much we can do about it outside of complain daily. And when the heat and humidity arrive? Complain some more. You know New Yorkers, never happy.
I have taken to doing a great Makeup & Beauty On my Desk Series on Instagram so if you don’t follow me, well, you’re missing out. Not really…sooner or later everything I Instagram ends up on Musings anyway but it sounded dramatic saying that.
Basically it consists of beauty and makeup that passes across my desk so you can get a bit of a sneak peek of what might be coming up in terms of reviews.
This week quite a few lovely Asian goodies are passing across my desk like the Etude House Color Pop Collection and BRTC’s new Jasmine Water CC Cream. Slay me, I adore the BB Cream and now a CC Cream version?
Life is good.
In other news, I’m currently working on my 50th Anniversary jacket for Gallifrey One 2014 and this will make an appearance:
Dontcha just love Etsy? You can find anything.
Oh and whoever said Game of Thrones went off the reservation is right. Started out quite good but yeah, not really following the book..but hey, it’s DAMN good entertainment.
Have a wonderful hump day!
And hey, she could likely love it because lord knows when I love something I tell everyone about it on every social network I’m on. Hell if I find a new concealer I adore chances are I want to take an ad out in the Sunday New York Times to share it with the world.
But my question is, do celebs influence your beauty purchases at all? Not necessarily Kim but anyone really….?Read More...
My birthday isn’t until Fall but I wouldn’t be averse to someone buying me a Barbie Digital Fashion Styling Head for iPad. As a child I did indeed have a Barbie Fashion Styling Head, didn’t everyone? As I recall, it wasn’t always about makeup and styling hair though. I’m pretty sure I cut all her hair off at some point and did unusual experiments on her.
I promise anything I did was completely normal. Kinda.
But times they are a changing and now Barbie has gone digital.Read More...
I’m away a lot on the weekends in the Summer and I’m loving this cute little Sonia Kashuk Floral Print Double Zip Foldover ($9.99) for stashing my SPF, moisturizer, and makeup in for quick getaways!

P.S. Xbox One or Playstation 4? Or both…..These key notes are killing me!
When my parents asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up at the age of five I said, “An artist”….when they asked me again when I was eight the reply was the same….and this continued for most of my youth.
Unfortunately, outside of stick figures, I cannot draw, paint, etc…I have virtually no artistic talents. Nada…nothing…it’s kinda hard being an artist when you can’t get past those blasted stick figures.
But a rare few of us have that special talent, one of those people happens to be Dustin Hunter. I share a love of makeup and beauty (as well as 80′s soapy mini series) with Dustin but NONE of his talent.
He created the Face Chart to brush up your artistic talents for not only pros but for everyone.
The Face Chart are simply blank face sheets which you can use to apply makeup to aiding you in creating new looks or even for practicing on.
Pros can use these as guides in a runway show, stage, or film productions or to practice their techniques. Everyone else, like me, can use them as to polish up their skills or create a new look on paper prior to trying it out on your own face! It’s a great way to get in some practice for makeup application and make just make you into the artist you aren’t!
They are available in a 25 or 100 pack at www.thefacechart.com
And hey, I probably need them if it improves my makeup skills to the point I’m as good as application as Dustin is.
I swear sometimes I feel like I could have purchased a brand new phone for the amount of $$$ I’ve spent on cases. Why oh why am I so obsessed with how my phone looks?!
I can afford ten more bucks right? For this adorable Dior Eyeshadow Makeup Palette iPhone 5 Case….!
This establishes me as a true makeup junkie right?

P.S. Can I tell you how incredibly behind I am on Game of Thrones? Four episodes are warming up my Tivo at the moment. Must get to them! Got in super late last night and had plans to catch up a little but Batman circa 1966 caught our attention and well, we got memorized by it. Seriously, I KNOW all the lines. As far as I’m concerned it is the best out of all the Batman movies. I happened to have a huge crush on Burt Ward when I was like seven years old and old episodes played on channel 11 or channel 9, something like that. He was such a pretty boy!
Holy cheese-fest Batman! 90 minutes well spent.
Happy Hump Day!
