Beauty Bits & Bobs
I’m ever so intimidated by the Chantecaille counter. Hold me I’m scared. Chantecaille reps scare the beegees outta me so I normally avoid the counter and order online if I’m self indulging myself in beautifully prestigious makeup. I don’t own a ton of Chantecaille but the few pieces I do have are safe guarded by two very large growling dogs but anyway onto the beauty news of the days!
After a long, long, very long, pretty long, long, why did it take this long?, long time Chantecaille has gone live with it’s brand new website which includes an online shop with the entire Chantecaille collection!
Bless be! I think I heard an angel get it’s wings!
Click for the deets!
Chantecaille has had a website for a long time but it was rarely updated and you couldn’t purchase anything from it. How pleasant that the site is now newly revamped with an online store for browsing and finding out more about the brand and making possible purchases. Truly this is a great day.
So so long intimidating MA’s and hello chantecaille.com!
Happy news for any fans?
Also, free shipping from the site until August 12th if you’re wanting to dish our a few bucks on incredible cosmetics!
Walmart has recently expanded it’s cosmetic aisles to appeal to the junkies that explore the empire for a deal or two or three. The Muse herself has been known to hit up the Walmart cosmetic aisle for a steal and a deal on a rare occasion when her sister forces her to tag along on long expeditions to explore cheap warez and goods.
In further news Walmart intends to expand even further, the Deathstar got nothing on this empire! It’ll be a bigger, badder Walmart than you’ve ever known before!
Click ahead for it!
Walmart may have your money but they want to keep it to. In a bid to keep customers clamoring for more Walmart has plans to expand it’s line by dumping many brands and bringing in higher end merchandise. But..but…but that’s why I shop Target!
I dunno if this really applies to cosmetic goods but Walmart has already begun revamping many 3,600 of it’s store base to include many big name brands. One can hope this means you’ll see Dior on your next trip to Walmart but don’t be too surprised if you don’t k? In the Muse’s opinion they should spend a few billion dollars on the cosmetic aisles.
Count the Muse curious to see these changes during her next yearly visit to the empire.

The weather isn’t quite right yet for the beach or the pool sigh. If you live in New York you’ll understand exactly what I mean as it’s not much of a Summer here in the Big Apple. However, this doesn’t stop me from thinkin’ up what I need for my beach bag or in my case pool bag as the Muse doesn’t do the beach to well (seaweed, sand, eek!).
So here’s a few items that are making a starring appearance inside my beach bag this Summer!
Everyone wants beach hair, everyone. Tousled, windblown locks that are soft, seductive, and sexy. Indeed, beach hair is where it’s at! A great item to toss in your beach bag for a full head of alluring hair would be Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist, smells just like tropics plus I just really dig on the name.
When you’re at the beach or pool you want clean, natural makeup that wears well and wears long. Morgen Schick Cheek and Lip Stain is my go to for long wearing color on my cheeks which is waterproof and incredibly flattering for a sunkissed glow!
If you’re at the beach and you’ve SPF’ed yourself to death as is the Muse’s routine you probably won’t get much of a tan but you can flatter your pale white skin with hints of iridescent pink on face, eyes, and cheeks with a dollop of Eyeko Cream!
Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheers used to be my all time favorite lip treatment. Don’t overlook these little tubes of pigmented joy for a Summer lip look that’s natural and laced with SPF.
Keep your hair conditioned and protected from the sun with Blossom Under Cover Conditioning Mist with SPF. Frizz be gone!
Eyeko Face Off Wipes aren’t great for removing a full load of face makeup but they are nice for toting around in your purse and freshening up your face with. Each box contains 10 individually wrapped wipes!
A little touch up of cooling mist for your face is always a pleasure when sitting out in the hot sun. Pack up some Evian Mist in the travel friendly can to mist your skin with to keep it fresh and dewy!
I’m the first one to admit that Loccitane Citrus Verbena Summer Fragrance tends to not linger very long however I find that in the Summer heat it manages to give off a very subtle, fresh lemony scent that I find rather ideal for beach or pool lazying!
Give your face a kiss of sun with Eyeko Face Tint! Amps up your Summer tan or gives your pale white skin a touch of Summer sun.
Hope you enjoyed my picks for hauling in my beach bag this Summer!

Well gee I must be asleep because I didn’t notice that Fresh recently introduced a new primer to their collection. I was in Atlantic City this past weekend and while at the Bluemercury Apothecary Spa I came across Fresh Rose Fresh Face Primer.
Read ahead for the deets!
This is the third release of primer from Fresh with High Noon and Twilight already a part of the collection. Although Fresh Rose Primer could easily be mistaken for Fresh Twilight at a glance and perhaps considered a dupe rest assured in texture and formula they are considerably different. I have Fresh Twilight and it’s an iridescent finish that casts a highlight on cheeks and face. After swatching Fresh Rose I was quite delighted that it was simply a white, fresh smelling primer that absorbed easily without leaving behind a finish of any kind.
Where as High Noon and Twilight cast a glow to skin Rose simply lays the foundation for a fresh, dewy face that you can follow up with makeup or just enjoy au natural.
I didn’t buy it as I had already indulged too much that day at the Spa but I’m thinking it made end up in my basket shortly. It’s available at Fresh’s site right now if you find you’re yearning for it after reading this.
Anyone a lover of Fresh primers?
Bjooti has the first images of the new Fall Collection from Lancome entitled Declaring Indigo.
I don’t always get excited about Lancome but sometimes they surprise me with delightful releases in the Fall such as the Mystery Game. Lancome Declaring Indigo is equally delightful with mysterious shimmering blues and touches of gold. I can get on board with loving all of this release particularly the shadow palettes and delicious shimmering golden powder!
