Product Musings: Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Peace and Graffiti


Dontcha just love when you find that perfect combo that just goes well together without any major thinking on your part? I’m not so great pairing up colors but when I got my hands on Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Peace and Graffiti a few years ago, I knew I had a match made in heaven on my hands!


I’ve never met such a great pair of shadows that went so well together. Contrasting Peace’s cool blue teal with Graffiti beautiful bright green is a gorgeous cocktail of color.

Let’s not forget how pigmented, easy to blend, and silky smooth Urban Decay Deluxe Shadows are as well! I’m not much for a satin finish but these are divine!


Peace and Graffiti are too of my very fav Urban Decay Shadows! Love pairing them up, loving wearing them solo, simply loves ‘em!

Good stuff!

Musings of the Day: Trying It On For Size?


You probably all know my answer to this one right?

So when you go to Sephora or your local counter do you test makeup out on yourself? On your lips? Cheeks?

As I said you probably know my answer, a big, fat NO! I refuse to put anything on my lips, cheeks, or face at counters or Sephora. If I want to test I swatch on my hand but I’m too anal to try any of it on my face. Be it at MAC, Dior, or Sephora I don’t care what counter or store I’m at, I simply won’t test any of it.

Yuk!

Tis my anal, germ-a-phobic nature but I’m not testing any of that stuff on my face!

How about you?

How do you test at counters?

Are you a swatcher or do you test on your face?

Product Musings: Clio Art Blusher


With it’s arty packaging and beautiful shade selection Clio Art Blusher is one of my favorite blushes!


I’ve reviewed Clio Art Blushes before but today I thought I’d muse some about it!

There is something so gorgeous about Clio Blush, well, that’s not true really. If I’m honest I’d say there is something so gorgeous about marbleized products in general! Baked products are so pretty! All those pretty veins of color! Clio Blush is such a beautiful piece of makeup art hence it’s packaging I guess right? Plus it’s so reasonably priced in Korea for such a high end cosmetic! Packaging, color selection, and a soft fluffy brush are only some of the things that make Clio Art Blusher a winner with the Muse!


Loves it!

Sasa does sell Clio Blush at not too bad a price if you’re interested!

Anyone else a fan?

Bobbi Brown Lip Quad


The Muse is always up for new Bobbi so when she seen the new Bobbi Brown Lip Quads I could feel myself get giddy!

But….

Ok, so these are super cool right? And not too badly priced! $20 bucks snags you four shades! But I was thinking to myself how strange it is that these can be popped out of their compacts and placed in one of the Bobbi customizable palettes.

Wait….

Huh?

They must be really, really tiny if they can fit inside one of those palettes?! How big are the lippies? Dime size?

Hmff!

Seeing is believing! Guess I have to haul to see it for myself!

What do you think?

Tiny?

What? New concealer from Smashbox? Ok, I’ll bite!

Smashbox introduces High Definition Concealer meant for concealing dark circles with a weightless formula and a natural finish! It even supposedly helps with under eye puffiness, this could be good! It has a soft touch precious applicator for smooth application around the delicate eye area! Sweet! Likey lots!

I can deal with more of the high def hype so I think I’ll take Smashbox ‘High Definition’ Concealer for a test drive soon!
