E.L.F Candy Shop Lip Tins

elf

I’m not particularly excited about E.L.F Candy Shop Lip Tins, I just wanted an excuse to play this song.


Ok, maybe I am kinda sorta digging the fact that E.L.F has these cute little lip tins filled with candy flavored lip balm but I won’t approve of the $2 USD price tag! What the hell happened to dollar makeup? It’s not fair to charge inflated prices E.L.F! For shame!

Available in Coconut, Frosting, Mocha, Melon, Candy, Berry, and Cherry there’s a little something sweet for everyone.

Take a trip to E.L.F’s Candy Shop and snag a deal by purchasing one Candy Shop Tin and getting one at 50% off using promo code EGSPRAP. At least that’ll get you one for a dollar so you’ll feel better about the price.

Sweetness awaits you (or cheapness depending on how you look at it)!

Musings of the Day: Fav Drugstore Mascara (US Drugstore)

Musngs

Since discovering my favorite drugstore mascara I’ve wanted to shout the good word of it to all the masses…..well I already have kinda but I’ll tell you about it again after the jump!

Ok, I’m speaking of US Drugstore brands here as there are way too many awesome Japanese drugstore mascaras that rock my little world. If you choose it does have to be a US brand…those be the rules kiddies!

My choice would have to be L’oreal Double Extend Mascara, whoa I really like this stuff, sincerely. I can’t help myself but this stuff is pretty damn good. I’ve been using it daily for about a month now and simply lurve it. That’s saying something as I normally fart in the general direction of any and all drugstore mascara finds in the US, sorry if you’re a lover, I happen to be a leaver. But Double Extend changed my very life and made me a believer that great mascaras may still dwell within a US drugstore….

Brb I think I just heard an angel sing!

Name your fav mascara.

Remember US brands only, no cheating and playing with the big guns, we all know Japanese drugstore mascara rocks it so you must choose a US brand…if you can that is….

It’ll be hard but I have confidence that you can do it!

Stash Spotlight: Shu Uemura Blush

Shu+Uemura

Do you realize that I used to have over 25 Shu Uemura Blushes? It was a disease I believe, that’s the only thing I could think of that would cause me to collect so many.

I started out my collection years ago but I’ve since swapped many of the blushes away when I started collecting NARS. I’m unsure why because I do think that Shu might top NARS very slightly in the blush category! But indeed, I use to have a fair few.

Today I’m proud to say I only have six. Phew. Jump ahead to spy my small stash of Shu blushes!

Shu+Uemura+Blush+4

With names like P Red D32 you’re sure to completely forget what color is your favorite. This could be one reason I stopped purchasing Shu blushes, the bloody number and letter system confused this Muse. The blushes are all majorly pigmented so for those who prefer alot of pop with their blush you’ll find Shu makes some of the best around. They have quite an extensive catalog of colors so there is definitely a little something for everyone.

Shu+Uemura+Blush+3


As I look at these I remember what fond favorites they were and are. I think I’ll take advantage during the next FF sale and indulge in a few shades I swapped away…the Muse misses them and feels a bit nostalgic.

What about you?

Lover of Shu?

Leaver?

Product Musings: MAC Lipstick in Kiss Manish

mac+lipstick

The Muse is super excited about MAC’s upcoming Summer Collections. All the colors are positively dreamy! Loving all that gold and bronze, so very Muse-like!

As I salivated over MAC Summer I couldn’t help but think what was already in my beauty arsenal that I could combo up with the collections when they released and the first thing to entire my mind was MAC Lipstick in Kiss Manish!

Loves it!

Released with the special, limited edition Manish Arora for MAC this incredible lipstick shade won my heart over fairly quickly. It’s made it’s way onto my Year End Favorite List for 2008 and has been worn too many times to count, that’s saying something as the Muse isn’t loyal to any one lipstick.

MAC+Lipstick+Kiss+Manish+3


The shade quite reminds me of my other favorite shade from MAC, Pink Grapefruit Lipglass. It’s such an incredibly deep shade of coral with a loud orange base but just enough punch to give it a dark peach sheen on my lips. Absolutely stunning! Truly MAC broke the mold when they made this particularly lippie!

Have you tried it?

Hauled it for yourself?

Love it as much as the Muse?

Tell me all about it!
