Latest Obsession: Lumene Vitamin C+ Energy Cocktail Review

So I think I’m actually part of the club now. I’m not entirely sure but I think CVS likes me. Prior to this past month anytime I walked into a drugstore within the US I heard Angels weep. I was actually scared the place would crumble down around my head after passing the threshold. The Muse does not do drugstore makeup and/or skincare. But so many new items have been popping up that have made me curious so I do venture in time to time plus so many of you expressed wanting affordable makeup reviews that I couldn’t simply ignore what you requested. So indeed I’ve been heading to CVS the past month….but the club…

Well I got some sort of coupon in the mail because they have this like extra card thingy that gets you bonus bucks kinda like the Boots Reward Card, not as good mind you. Anyway they sent me $5 off anything in the store via an e-mail so I guess this means I have an in now, I’m part of the secret club, coupons and all!

No seriously I did get the coupon so I did decide I might as well spend it. I ended up hauling Lumene Vitamin C+ Energy Cocktail with the coupon. Mind you not because of the formula but because it looked so pretty, literally like some fancy cocktail, it just needed a little paper umbrella and I’d say it was downright tropical.

Have a jump to see why it’s my latest obsession!

Would You Buy It? Kim Kardashian Perfume

Kim Kardashian Perfume

The Muse has a love/hate relationship with Kim Kardashian. I hate her because I can’t stand reality TV, OMG reality telly is my pet peeve. I’m a PBS nerd so you can take it from there what sort of viewing habits I have as far as the tube goes. You can just imagine what it’s like when I switch on the TV and I’m presented with shows like Keeping Up with The Kardashians…lame-o!

Anyway.

I love her because I really do think she’s an utterly flawless looking girl. I’d love to meet her makeup artist. Kinda have the hint of a girl crush on her. I know little to nothing about her mind you aside from her looks as I never really paid much attention to her show or interviews and such with her although I did hear her brief, short replies during her spot on the Howard Stern recently…yea I know how ironic it is that I listen to Howard Stern but hate reality TV, shrug.

I’m babbling.

Fact is that Kim now has her own fragrance. The new Kim Kardashian Perfume is coming to Sephora shortly and I’m honestly intrigued and curious how it might smell.

Question is, would you buy it?

The Muse’s Year End Review 2009: The Muse’s Fav Beauty Tools

favorites

Ahhh tools!  Anyone that does some sort of trade has a set of tools.  Mechanics, Carpenters, and of course, most important, Make Up Artists.   These tools are used to sometimes fix something or create something entirely new.

Although I’m not a make up artist I still have my fair share of beauty tools that I favor each and everyday to apply my makeup and create my eye looks.

As the New Year starts, take a step back with me as I look through some of my very favorite beauty tools.
