Product Musings: KATE Glamtrick Palette GN-1

gn1

Since I was busy musing about KATE today I couldn’t help but bring out my very favorite KATE palette of all time to muse over. KATE Glamtrick Palette in GN-1 holds a special place in my heart and is possibly the greatest palette in the world for creating a smoky green eye look in a few steps!

Loves it!

Released with the KATE Spring Collection 2008, GN-1 contained a beautiful selection of greens to create a sexy, flirty green eye look that’s made my eyes sizzle with life. I absolutely adore this palette! It’s since made many of my all time favorite lists and has been the source of plenty of posts here!

I couldn’t help but share the love today for GN1! Truly a great little palette that does an incredible smoky eye. Gorg! See my Musings on KATE Glamtrick Palettes for further information!

Love it?

Beauty Muse: Making MAC Lipglass Better!


Wanna Muse MAC Lipglass with me? Jump ahead to join in!

The Muse was thinking about it this morning, yes indeed she occasionally does that, think. As she applied her MAC Lustreglass she was thinking how brilliant it would be if MAC embraced the brush applicator for all it’s glosses!

The Muse started her career a hater of MAC glosses as they are so bloody sticky and tacky! Yak! But I’ve since made peace with them and admit that although they are sticky as all hell they have incredible long wear, the longest wear of any of the glosses I’ve tried!

The only thing that would improve on the MAC gloss line is if they’d embrace brush applicators for their glosses. I’d truly dig that. Lustreglass already has a brush applicator and I can so dig on MAC Lipglasses with one too instead of the sponge applicator!

What do you think?

Would you love MAC glosses to all have a brush applicator?

How would you improve their glosses?

Pieces of Life: the Cheap Edition

sephora

Two bucks for a satchel? 4 for a box? Word.

Dudes, sit tight and listen to my tale of cheap!

Ok, last night I was wandering around Sephora and loaded my cart up with stuff I didn’t really need. As I was getting ready to check out I clicked up on my samples and proceeded to select the gift box option. I always get the box as I use the awesome Sephora gift boxes for storing bits and bobs. They are such sturdy boxes, they make a great organizer for little pieces of makeup and other items.

After selecting all my options and punching in my debit card number I was about to hit submit when I realized my total was a tiny bit off. Hmmm wonder why?

Turns out that gift boxes and satchels are no longer free at Sephora. For serious. Now it’s $4 USD for a gift box and a satchel is $2 USD. Ummm so not cool. Ew. I was being totally cheap so I removed the box option and was about to go for the satchel when I realized that they were charging for that too! Damn. Oh well I suppose I can understand charging for the box but the satchel was a bit on the ridiculous side.

To add insult to injury I had added the new Korres pack they have for free with your Beauty Rewards. I was quite chuffed about this and was looking forward to getting it. I had over $76 USD in my cart which more than qualifies for free shipping on the items I had purchased. When I added it into my cart they were charging me $5.95 USD to ship all my items but if I remove it shipping was free. What the frack? No likey paying shipping for something that’s free.

Anyway, this was my rant of the day about Sephora. I’m not loving all these changes but I suppose they are necessary in this economy but that doesn’t mean I have to like ‘em!

Grrr!
