Fill in the Beauty Blank: Fall Makeup Collections 2009

fall+collections

The Muse has been testing out Fall Collections since July but even she hasn’t tried them all yet. I’m currently coveting one or two collections that I haven’t yet gotten my hands on that’s for sure!

Jump ahead to hear what I’m wanting this Fall!

I simply can’t wait to try out the Guerlain Slavic Beauty Collection particularly the new Guerlain Russian Doll Blush! It’s screaming my name. I love gel or stain blushes and this looks incredible. Guerlain’s Fall Collection for 2009 is one of the few Fall Collections I haven’t hauled yet so I’m looking forward to making the kill shortly.

Dolce+%26+Gabbana+Eye+Color+Quad

The Muse has been busy stalking Saks and the new Dolce & Gabbana website, drooling over all the offerings.

One particular item that captured my attention (and held it to the point of obsession) is the new Dolce & Gabbana Smooth Eye Colour Quad. These quads look stunning from pictures I’ve seen on other blogs and beauty forums.

The Muse needs more Dolce & Gabbana Makeup in her life, like now.

I feel a haul coming on, look out Saks here I come.

Anyone check out the new line?

Loving it?

Tell the Muse!

Want It: Shiseido Pureness Oil Control Cleansing Massage Set

Shiseido+Pureness+Oil+Control+Cleansing+Massage+Set

The Muse isn’t one for dabbling around with her skincare. She normally sticks to what she knows. But she can be tempted on occasion.

Shiseido Pureness Oil Control Cleansing Massage Set does so tempt!

Click ahead to read about this new cleansing kit from Shiseido.

This set includes a cleansing massage brush….I swear that must be what appeals most to me. The Muse is a gadget junkie for sure…what? I get happy about a facial brush, can’t help myself.

Also included in the set is a full size Shiseido Pureness Deep Cleansing Foam and a travel size of Shiseido Pureness Balancing Softener. The set provides a gentle facial massage and is designed for a more thorough cleansing thanks to the silky-soft, finely tapered bristles and silicone cushion of the brush. Plus you’ll get oil control benefits with the foam as well!

I just want it because of the brush….

Available now from Nordies.

Bizarre or Unusual Beauty Secrets 101

beauty+secrets

We all know celebs are out there living the high life, we should all be so lucky and of course with all that money floating about one is bound to get bored. The Muse’s theory is the more money you have the more likely you are to adapt a bizarre, possibly unusual beauty regime. It’s true right? You have a ton of cash and you’ve tried every lotion and potion on the market and now you’re bored…might as well try something different to spice things up right?

Check out some possibly unusual beauty treatments that celebs and share your own!

Catherine Zeta-Jones
Strawberries
Malic acid acts as an astringent to remove discoloration on teeth. Combining with baking powder, strawberries become a natural way to clean teeth.

Cindy Crawford
Milk
Cleopatra was well known for bathing in milk and honey. Milk is a luscious skin treat when it is added to bath water. Milk exfoliates, softens and nourishes the skin.

Debra Messing
Snake Venom
Supposedly is a great ingredient in anti-wrinkle treatment. I haven’t seen any skin care sporting it as of yet but than again I don’t have Debra Messing’s bank account, must be shopping in the wrong places!

Jennifer Love Hewitt
Toothpaste
Ahhh we’ve all tried this home remedy I’m sure, a little dab of toothpaste for my pimples. Toothpaste acts as a mask treatment to dry out pimples and reduce their size. Some toothpastes contain menthol or alcohol which accounts for the drying properities and the reduction of a pimple size.

Sandra Bullock
Hemorrhoid Cream
Personally anything that’s normally used for your butt would not be touching my face but if Sandra Bullock likes it good for her! Supposedly it’s great for wrinkles.

Halle Berry
Coffee
The idea is to mix coffee with some sort of body lotion to buff away cellulite. Can’t say if it works but plenty of people swear by it!

Julia Roberts
Olive Oil
Rubbing olive oil into nails and cuticles will keep them soft and moisturized

Eva Longoria
Placenta Protein
Word on the street is that placenta contains highly proteins, vitamins, and such to help skin regenerate.

Teri Hatcher
Wine
Dunno if Teri’s drinking in it or bathing in it although the Muse has heard that a glass of vino a day keeps the old ticker beating happy and healthy…not sure about skin though!

Do you have any unusual beauty regimes?

Me, I don’t think I really have any. I’m not one for trying out home remedies and the likes so I can’t say I really used any of the above treatments.

How about you?

Share ‘em!

P.S. I do not endorse any of the above treatments nor do I suggest you try them. I’m not a doctor or a dermatologist and have no way of knowing the effects of these treatments on skin. Always be safe when attempting anything new on your skin. This post is for entertainment purposes only. Whether or not if the following celebs actually use these treatments is entirely speculation please see the source for more information.
