Product Musings: Milani Runway Eyes Wet Dry Eye Shadow in Beach Sand

milani

It’s been a while since we product mused together hasn’t it? Today I’m musing about the joys of Milani Runway Eyes in Beach Sand!

Check it after the jump.

I hauled Milani Runway Eyes Wet Dry Eyeshadow in every shade a while ago and I’m always so delighted by the quality of these shadows. Great pigmentation, a gorgeous yet subtle sparkle, and a pretty price tag keeps me a happy Muse indeed.

As Summer comes forth I’m reaching for the shade Beach Sand daily. It’s name is ever so fitting and complimenting of it’s shade as truly it reminds me of the golden sparkling sands of a beach on a hot day. Such a gorgeous shade of sparkling golden beige to compliment a Summer bronze look or to light up your eyes with just the minimal amount of makeup!


Beach Sand is gorgeous in both color, finish, and it’s beauty on a budget price makes it even better!

Does Milani Runway Eyes Wet Dry Eye Shadow in Beach Sand grace anyone’s collection?

Beauty News: DuWop Twilight Lip Gloss DuWop Lip Venom V

I’m the first to admit I absolutely adore Twilight so of course a new themed lipgloss from the movie by DuWop has me in fits of joy!

duwop+twilight+lip+gloss

Jump for the beauty news on DuWop Twilight Lipgloss (or DuWop Lip Venom V, name is unconfirmed as of yet).

Entertainment Weekly reports that DuWop Twilight Lip Gloss is a lip stain mixed with DuWop’s popular Lip Venom! Some reports I’ve read are saying that there will be an entire makeup collection themed for the Twilight film and that Robert Pattinson is already sporting DuWop Twilight on the set. You’ll see this gloss and possibly this collection, if rumors are true, later this year but I’m betting by the end of Summer for Fall Collection releases.

Count me on board for purchasing the gloss and anything else they choose to theme with Twilight. WANT! This could be one LE collection that sells out FAST!

Would you buy Twilight themed cosmetics?

WANT IT: Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15

Apologies for my ravings about Fresh lately but I’ve been taken in by their newly themed rose items as of late. Sugar Rosť Tinted Lip Treatment is next on my want hit list!

Check it:

More deets after the jump!

Quite reminds me of Dior Lip Glow doesn’t it? Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment ($22.50) is a simple hint subtle rose tint for lips with an SPF of 15 to protect and moisture lips. I guess it’s nothing special but the Muse fancies it and thinks it’ll be a rather nifty little item for those natural make up days!

I wants it!

Musings of the Day: Take It and Make It Better, Drugstore Cosmetics

I know alot of you enjoy drugstore brands (within the US that is) but I haven’t really been on board with them myself. I haven’t caught drugstore fever since I was in high school and rarely do I buy much makeup in drugstores. Up until I started my blog I rarely even ventured into a drugstore to buy much of anything. Well, times have changed since many requests come in daily for cheaper makeup options so I head to various drugstores to see if I can find decent makeup items.

Today, I have a Cheap Beauty Challenge post that’s upcoming in a few. As I was typing it out last week I realized something that could get me excited about drugstore cosmetics. This in turn gave me my idea for today’s Musings of the Day.

If you’re not a fan of drugstore cosmetics or you like them but wish they were a bit better this question should appeal.

How would you make drugstore cosmetics better?

What would make you want to buy more from your local drugstores?

Packaging? Pigmentation? Price?

Think about your answer and reply below!

I thought about this and as much as I wanted to say PACKAGING! I realized one thing that would be even better than packaging would be online advertisement. When you walk into a drugstore it’s rather nifty that they have various displays with new collections however have you ever noticed you can’t find ANY info about these releases on the brands websites? Take for example the Maybelline Focus on Gold Collection (I’m reviewing this in the Cheap Challenge). I can’t find a word about it anywhere on the Maybelline site.

How great would it be if all these little collections they release would have better online push. Maybe e-mail alerts? Or a website for the collections? Something that allows us to know that the releases are out. Most time collection releases are rarely pimped out online. I read someone mention that the Diana Keaton Collection was never on the L’Oreal site and when they called L’Oreal even the company didn’t know about it.

I think, possibly, US drugstore brands would be more appealing if I could get more info about releases and what was released with the collection, etc….at this point it’s more of a “surprise!” whenever you walk into the drugstore.

Packaging definitely would help too but online advertisement would be even better.
