Musings of the Day: Returns!

FloridaSweety is back with a brand new video about the best way to return items at a store! I posted one of her videos previously and it got a great response as I think everyone enjoyed her as much as I did. She’s always a great inspiration to get a good conversation flowing so this morning’s Musings is all about returns!


So how do you feel about returning makeup? Do you return it or just give it to friends if you can’t use it?

The Muse isn’t as assertive as FloridaSweety sadly so most times anything I hate ends up in the bottom of my closet in the beauty graveyard. I’m also really bad with receipts and keeping them, I throw them to the bottom of my purse and end up losing them etc….Sometimes I feel comfortable returning at Sephora but most times I don’t as everyone is terribly snotty about returns. Did you every notice what a hissy fit people have at counters and Sephora when you have to do a return? Even with a receipt they get all evil and snotty! Or is that me? This is one reason I absolutely adore shopping on Sephora’s website as it’s free return postage back and no one questions you about what was wrong with the product or gives you an attitude problem about returning it.

I really never could understand why employees get so upset about returns. It’s always a rather big deal whenever I return something and five different people have to come over and look at the item, the receipt, etc….

How about you?

Are you a “return queen”?

Do you avoid returning items?

Beauty Blast from the Past: Pout Beauty Rouge

Pout+Beauty+Rouge+22

My inner Brit misses Pout Beauty so very much! Sigh. Especially the Pout Rouge! Those were such a seriously great product!

Why, oh, why did the entire line get flushed? I miss it so!

Available in some great popping shades Pout Beauty Rouge was truly a fab product. Pigmented, silky smooth with a satin finish it gave cheeks a healthy pop of color. It’s one of my favorite blushes and I can’t help but think what a terrible shame it was when Pout went under! The entire line was so fresh and girlish. The rouges came in large compacts with a full mirror and plenty of product for the price.
