Stash Spotlight: Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer

tarte

I like pretty much everything Tarte puts out but one of my absolute favs are the Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheers!

Tarte+24+7+Lip+Sheer+1

The Muse thinks that Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheers don’t get nearly enough love so she thought she’d feature them in a Stash Spotlight today!

For a very, very long time these were my go to item for a beautifully pigmented pouting smile. I used to use them with almost every single look I created as they are so moist, glide on beautifully, and are pigmented as all heck. At $14 USD I always thought they were an incredible deal with the quality. I’ve been thinking about how much I’d love it if Tarte took a bit of time out and revisited with these incredible balms and maybe introduced a few new shades. The Muse would be every so happy if they did!

Tarte+24+7+Lip+Sheer+3

If you never tried a Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer the Muse highly recommends nabbing one! Fab stuff, ’nuff said.

Loves ‘em?

Leaves ‘em?

In the Muse’s Purse: Silver Heart Lipstick Holder

Find out what the Muse’s lipstick is held in when in her purse after the jump!

I found this adorable silver lipstick holder that’s shaped like a heart in a cute little Asian shop a year or two ago. I slip the lipstick I’m wearing that day inside and flip it open whenever I need a touch up as the lid holds a mirror as well!

Musings of the Day: Packaging Rat

tag orange

When you buy new makeup be it MAC or anything else, do you keep the boxes and packaging it comes with?

Are you a pack rat?

The Muse normally keeps special items in their boxes. And sometimes she even keeps packaging for expensive brands, for example all my Givenchy blushes and shadow quads are kept in their boxes even if they aren’t LE. MAC boxes I normally toss unless it’s a special packaging like FAFI or Barbie, etc…

I used to keep Bobbi Brown in all the packaging but lately I toss it out even LE palettes I find that I toss the boxes which surprises me considering how anal I am about my cosmetic collection.

Crummy packaging, even if the item is LE, normally gets tossed. For example Urban Decay’s sometimes has cruddy plastic packaging on LE items and I just toss that out. I also do this with LE Japanese brands products such as KATE palettes that are LE…the packaging is just plastic so I normally toss it, same for Lavshuca.

I actually wish I can get out of keeping boxes and packaging because it’s such a hassle to store, organize, and even find items I’m looking for when everything is in little boxes.

I guess this makes me a bit of a packaging rat and a bit of a tosser depending on brands and such!

How about you?

Packaging rat?

No way! I toss it!

Tell the Muse!

YSL Matt Touch Compact Foundation

YSL+Matt+Touch+Compact+Foundation

There is something so fabulously chic and luscious about the new YSL Matt Touch Compact Foundation.

YSL Matt Touch Compact Foundation is ridiculously pretty…the Muse likes pretty things. She likes to take them home and pet them and tell them how pretty they are. Gee is that very demented? Oh well!

Available in 10 shades YSL Matt Touch Compact Foundation has an ultra soft and comfortable texture to give your skin a flawless perfection with long-lasting matteness thanks to it’s oil-regulating power and anti-shine powder. Oil-regulating power, bloody hell that sounds amazing! Take that oily skin! The formula contains SPF 20 so not only is it combating your oily skin but protecting it from the sun as well.

Anyway forget all that stuff…..I’m mostly enthralled by the pretty gold box…with it’s flip top lid and YSL emblem on the powder. Oooooo pretties! The Muse must make it hers!

I’m such a sucker for gorgeous packaging!

Loves it?

Leaves it?
