Musings of the Day: Sooooooooooo Overrated!

My Musings of the Day was brought on suddenly after watching a video from FloridaSweety on youTube.

Please tell me you subscribe to her videos? No? Check it below and you’ll totally understand my obsession.


Is she hysterical or what? I absolutely adore how she starts out on one topic and starts flying off the handle from topic to topic. Absolutely adored when she stops mid sentence because her cell phone starts to ring and she goes off on a tangent about how she won’t pick it up.

Lord…youTube is the best.

Anyway.

The moral of the story is FloridaSweety was saying how overrated MAC is and I was wondering what brand or brands do you think are terribly overrated?

Click below for my answer!

musings

Ok, I probably have a few answers for this. Let’s see. I think NYX is big time overrated. They have alot of great stuff but the raves about how comparable they are to MAC…ummm overrated! One such example would be everyone comparing NYX shadows to MAC ummm again no I don’t think. Very nice shadows but not as good as MAC in my humblest.

It’s Monday so my brain is slow today and I’m only coming up with the one brand…so throw some my way!

Which brand or brands are completely overrated?

Tell the Muse!

Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie Eye Shadow Review

The Muse is feeling all pretty in pink today as she’s wearing Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie Eyeshadow in Peekaboo Lace! Oh speaking of pink doesn’t that so remind you of Duckie from Pretty in Pink with Molly Ringwald? I had such a crush on Duckie….what the hell was Molly thinking when she dumped him for Andrew? And speaking of which how freaking disappointing was it that her dress turned out so bad? I thought she was going to whip up some Cinderella affair and she comes walking out of her bedroom in a scary pink straight jacket looking prom dress.

Sadness, but hey at least her dad was played by Roman Grant right? That has to count for props that your dad is the future Prophet of Juniper Creek!

Oh hai did I get off track there for a second? You want to hear more about Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie dontcha? Ok, ok no more babblings about Pretty in Pink!

Jump ahead for the pretty in Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie Review!

There’s something terribly sexy about an eye shadow entitled Eye Lingerie. Sounds naughty doesn’t it? But it’s very fitting with Dianne Brill’s favorite line of “slipping it on”.

If you’re wanting a silky smooth pigmented shadow with a pretty pearl finish I highly suggest checking out Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie Eye Shadow. The shadows come packaged in a faux matchbox, slip it open to reveal the sweet lacy silver compact. Decked out with a lacy fishnet stocking and a ribbon this eye shadow is probably like no other in your collection. Flip open the compact to reveal a nice size mirror and an even nicer sized shadow! These shadows are nice and large so you’ll be looking pretty for a long time with daily use. The shade I tried was Peek-a-Boo Lace which happens to be a great dupe for the Dianne Brill Blush I recently tried. The color is a pretty pink with a solid base of gold, blended onto the lid you’ll get a morphed shadow of pinks and golds that’s unique and quite beautiful. It’s quite like the shade of blush I recently reviewed entitled Rose Gold Pearl so pairing the two up will make you very pretty in pink!

The formula of the shadow is very silky, blends easily, and is quite pigmented. If you’re wanting to multitask a bit you can probably get away with dipping a blush brush in the shadow and sweeping across cheeks for a pink, gold highlight on face and cheeks! Pretties!

WANTS IT: Smashbox Mother Earth Palette


I dunno what it is that’s so very appealing about the Smashbox Mother Earth Palette but the Muse feels her blood boiling when she laid eyes on it!

After many an email asking after it I’ve decided I really need to go and get one for my very self.

What is it? An eco-friendly color palette containing four eyeshadows and a blush. It’s a certified-organic compact with a sleeve made from sustainable materials. Whoa I’m all green friendly now! Although I’m all about bolder, vibrant shades for Spring, I’m loving all over the peach colored blush in this palette.

With each purchase of the Smashbox Mother Earth Palette, a tree will be planted by the Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating sustainable enviroments through forestation.

Feel good about your purchase in knowing you’re helping your planet out and making yourself beautiful at the same time.

Whatcha think?

Loving this palette?

Wanting it?

Tell the Muse!

And don’t forget about the Smashbox Muse Collection! The Muse is still wanting to pick up the palette from this collection and the pencils. Anyone haul any of it? I’m sticking by my right to say this collection was created exclusively with me in mind…”Muse”..come on you know Smashbox is so reading my blog and getting a full on creative energy burst from all my amazing babblings thus the Muse Collection was born.

You know you love me.
