bareMinerals Pure Platinum

Last year Nordstrom offered the bareMinerals Pure Platinum Gift Set for the Holidays and the Muse was pretty delighted with the kit.


It’s long since been gone though and I’m sure that those who didn’t indulge may still be yearning for it.

Have no fear the Muse can show you how to get your very own bareMinerals Pure Platinum!

Get the deets how after the jump!

QVC has gotten the bareMinerals Pure Platinum Kit in stock for $59 USD (same price as last year w00t score!)!

Type in item number A81855 to snag yours!

The kit includes:

  • Bare Escentuals Blush in Posh Blush
  • Bare Escentuals Gossamer Body Powder in Platinum
  • Bare Escentuals Glimmer Eyeshadow in Silvery Hue
  • Bare Escentuals Eyeshadow in Periwinkle
  • Bare Escentuals Natural Lip Color in Ripe Fig
  • Bare Escentuals Double-Ended Mascara with Classic Black Mascara and Platinum Luminous Lashes
  • Bare Escentuals Flawss Face Brush
  • Bare Escentuals Tapered Shadow BrushBare Escentuals Crease Defining Brush

The kit is well worth picking up since it’s one of the older kits which includes full sizes of virtually almost everything in it where as nowadays Bare Escentuals has decreased the size of products drastically in new set releases. It also includes quite a variety of items where as, again, BE has chosen to scale down not only the size of products in it’s newer kits but also the quantity of items.

This is a rare gem well worth picking up especially if you missed it last year!

Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit

With the evolution of technology someone, somewhere in the cosmetic world decided that now was the time to introduce a slew of HD inspired products. With that brand new HD TV you got for Christmas you may just want to indulge in some HD makeup to go along with it to hide flaws, wrinkles, spots, and any other woes that your face may possess. After all HD displays and shows EVERYTHING thus we can’t likely get away with our simple makeup application anymore, we have to step it up a notch and bring our application process into the realms of high-def.

HD

Yeah well you either laughed really hard at my LOL l33t speak or you just didn’t get it……

Considering everyone and their mum has jumped on board with this idea it’s really caused a rather nice craze and hype. Truth of the matter is do we honestly need HD makeup? The Muse likes to think we don’t. She’s not against looking flawless but when is it likely she’ll appear on telly? I guess we can chalk up HD as being one of those extra mile stones that we all want to pass to enter into the flawless skin nirvana we all seem to crave.

I wouldn’t trust my HD makeup to anyone so when I seen the Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit I knew that indeed it was time to actually cross paths with HD makeup and take the plunge!

So you may be a bit weary when you finally figure out that Morgen Schick actually offers her cosmetics through HSN. I know, I know. The idea of no name products off of HSN may scare you. Honestly, I’ve found some amazing products on Home Shopping and I’m not embarrassed to admit that. Although Morgen is far from being a no name she still is for many an unknown. I personally think her products are some of the most awesome I’ve come across and the flawless finish you see to my skin in about 85% percent of my photos is thanks to her Hide and Highlight Palette.

Anyway about this HD thing I was talking about.

I recently ordered the Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit from HSN for $39.50 USD and of course I’ll bring a review of it to you as soon as it arrives in my mail box. I’m quite excited about the kit as Morgen has a special knack for creating products that just do a world of wonder for making dull skin light up and glow. The hype of the HD bug never did bite me but as soon as I seen this kit I knew it was about time to jump into the world of HD makeup!

Morgen+Schick+Hi+Def+Perfection+Kit

For now I’ll leave you with the video showing application and general information about the kit.


Expect the Muse’s review very soon!

What’s your take on HD cosmetics?

Gimmick?

Love the idea?

Tell the Muse!

Musings of the Day: Possession Obsession

musingsoftheday

Do you hate your friends digging into your cosmetics? Can’t stand when your mate tries to use your favorite gloss? Absolutely abhor the idea of anyone touching your beloved stash?

I probably fall into the possessive category with my cosmetics but than again none of my friends are as obsessed about makeup as I am but I still don’t like them digging through my collection or swatching it or lord knows even using it! I guess I’m a greedy girl that doesn’t share her toys well!

How about you?

Are you possessive with your makeup or maybe it doesn’t bother you if someone touches or uses your stash?

Tell the Muse!

Pieces of Life: The Monday Morning Edition

Monday+Edition

Morning guys!

Happy Monday! Oh my god tis like the Monday from hell! Was so hard dragging my butt out of bed this morning after having so many days off. I swear the last few days have been so completely relaxing! I’m always running around doing this, that, and the other thing and never have enough free time to just sit down and veg! The last few days I did just that. Total vegetable. It was so lovely. I caught up on a few books I’ve been meaning to read, played stupid amounts of WoW, watched a slew of geeky flicks with my mate Martin (we generally have the same retarded taste in sci-fi films one of which was Capricorn One circa before James Brolin became Barbra Streisand’s b*tch…what? I love Barbra but we all know she has James on lock down!), and just really enjoyed doing absolutely nothing!


Jump ahead to read more about my Monday, the weekend, and what’s ahead at Musings!

Oh and I was really productive and stuff this weekend too so I did do other stuff that wasn’t in the realms of playing dead and acting like a veggie! Read on….

For the longest time my main ring tone was the Time Warp so I decided to change it this weekend. What? I’m still in Halloween mode I guess…sue me!

Check it and tell me whatcha think icon wink


I also switched up the slider to play the sound of the Tardis launching! Loves it!

See? Told ya I was productive!

I have a slew of posts for you today including my Year End Favorites list, my New Year’s Resolution post, a giveaway or two, and a few other tricks up my sleeves so stay tuned! Oh which reminds me I know the past few days you haven’t seen many reviews but don’t worry those are coming along too and we’ll be back to cosmetic nirvana shortly!

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and you’re back on the “back to work” bandwagon! After a few diet cherry pepsis, some tea, and a bit of coffee the Muse promises you’ll be all awake and alert enough to deal with Monday morning!

Feel free to spread the cheer about your weekend and what you did, what you hauled, and any trouble you got into! My comment box is open and my eyes are listening!

xoxo <--------whoa how gossip girl of me!
