DO NOT WANT: Nicole Kidman at the Nine Premiere

By now you’ve seen it, heard it, read it, and probably got a call from your best friend saying, “OMG did you see Nicole Kidman at the Nine Premiere?”

If you’re living under a rock and haven’t yet heard Nicole Kidman kinda tanked it at the premiere when she popped onto the red carpet looking like A. She ate a powdered donut and got it all over her face. B. Someone slapped her with a chalkboard eraser C. All of the Above.

Nicole Kidman

I dunno what happened. I can’t believe her makeup artist let her loose on the world with powder all over her face. It’s under her eyes, on her nose, on her face…WTH? I imagine some of the powder was being buffed under her eyes to conceal wrinkles and make her nice and flawless for the flash of the camera but someone simply forgot to b;end it out…either that or you can go with A, B, or C.

Nicole, get rid of your makeup artist and hire a new one honey. DO NOT WANT powder all over the place.

Beauty Confessions: Waste Not, Want Not!

confess

The Muse went to an all girl’s high school and once a month we all had to assemble in the gym, wait in line, and proceed to sit down with one of four priests to confess our sins.  I swear confessing my naughty deeds was the most difficult thing ever.  I admit that on occasion I’d make up things like, “I took the Lord’s name in vain…” just so I could get out of there really fast…honestly, I wasn’t going to tell him what I was really up to!

Now as embarrassing as it is to sit and confess all my cheek to a priest I have no such reservations confessing my beauty mishaps to you.

But of course when I seen the new Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Eye Primer I got pretty darn excited.

The Daily Product Babble: Too Faced Holiday Collection 2009

Daily Product Babble

Heyz!

What’s up?

I’m kinda relieved we made it through Monday or at least I think we did. I admit I spent part of my Monday procrastinating over clips, news, and rumors of a Who-variety. I’m pretty jealous I can’t see the latest eppy of Nevermind the Buzzcocks live on Wednesday. Hells, I’m tempted to jump a plane and crash at my friend’s flat just so I can catch this episode but I guess I’ll have to wait until someone slaps it up on youTube.

Watch!

Please tell me that CT is NOT that dense when it comes to a show she worked on? OMG! I always dig on Noel Fielding as the guest captain so at least I can try to ignore Catherine’s crazy cluelessness and just giggle at Noel. He’s like a blooming piece of furniture lately.

Anyway moral of the story is that you’ll see plenty of DT whorin’ in England and the US (if you know where to look) this week and just about all of this month as the End of Time draws nearer and nearer. Heck it’s almost as great as seeing John Barrowman on ever single program on the network.

Oh…

but makeup…that’s what this day is all about innit?

Today let’s have a little daily babble ’bout the Too Faced Holiday Collection 2009 which, gasp, I only have one piece of! I still haven’t hauled it! Someone kick me!
