Summer Must Have Makeup: Tarte Peaches and Cream Oil-Free Powder Foundation Review

I recently read about Tarte Peaches and Cream Oil-Free Powder Foundation over at 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic.

After reading Christine’s raving review I promptly looked up more reviews for the product and decided I must haves it now! Let me tell you there are quite a few raves surrounding this little product. Although I’m a Tarte fan this is the first time I’ve even heard about this. The worst part about the entire product is it’s freaking limited edition! Ugh! How awful is that? What convinced me further to want to try this out was I got at least ten e-mails over the past two weeks asking “Muse have you tried Tarte Peaches and Cream Foundation?” and I sadly had to say no that I never even heard about it!

This is probably thee best product you’ll run across at the moment that offers really good yet light coverage plus dries down to a matte, powder finish which is perfect for those humid, hot days. I probably can’t get away with wearing this in the Winter when my skin is drier but right now when I’m sporting a bit of oily skin it’s pure perfection.

A little tiny dab goes a long way. Simply squirt a small amount on your fingertip and go to town smoothing it down the sides of your nose and spreading outwards to your cheeks, under your lip line, sides of chin, etc….these are areas I need coverage as those are dull spots for me and also shadowy. After this I have a beautiful working canvas for the rest of my makeup or since the coverage is so natural I can simply leave the house with this on and some gloss!

It contains plenty of good for you ingredients like vitamins a, c, and e plus it has an SPF of 20 which is a total plus for me! The color does appear slightly strange. It has a very weird orange beige tinge however it does blend in flawlessly in and leaves my skin looking fresh and awake!

In my quest for perfect, flawless skin Tarte Peaches & Cream definately gets added to my Summer Must Have list! The fact that it offers excellent coverage while remaining light and natural plus keep my skin matte in the Summer sun makes it a perfect addition to my Summer Must Have Makeup List!

As you can see from my FOTD (excuse my tired eyes! Didn’t have much sleep last night eep!) the foundation gives a rather fresh, dewy look to my skin!

Lint-On-The-Go-Sheets Review

I swear I’m a magnet for lint and hair!

I have two tiny dogs at home and I love them something fierce however although they are short haired I still find little pieces of stray hair hanging out all over my clothes especially in the Winter when I’m wearing darker colors.

I read about Lint-On-The-Go-Sheets a few months ago on another blog and thought how awesome they were so I’m happy to have gotten a chance to test them out for myself.

Picture+015

I normally sit with a lint a roller in my hand wheeling it across the fabric of my slacks and such. I actually found out that wrapping tape around my hand just works better than a roller does! And here you go the perfect solution to lint and stray hairs would be these Lint On The Go Sheets.

Picture+017

It’s like a big, old piece of sticky tape on the back of you hand that you pat over your shirt, slacks, etc…to swipe up all those evil lint pieces and hair!

These are simple to use. Just slip over your hand, peel away the protective layer of the adhesive, and go to town patting away all the gook that collects on your clothes!

Picture+018

Presto! You’re look perfectly posh again!

The Muse likey!

If you work in an office environment you can really appreciate slipping these in your desk draw and having them handy for touch ups!

It’s $12 bucks for a pack of 20 or go wild and get the triple pack for $26! Plus it’s Free Shipping! Don’t we love Free Shipping?

Click on over and have a peek at the Lint-On-The-Go-Sheets website and grab some for yourself! Truly these are handy to carry around with you! The Muse should know, as she mentioned, she’s a magnet for lint!

Lint Roller be gone! Yay!

Recycled Beauty: Boots No7 Cleanse and Care Eye Makeup Remover

Picture+3442

A few months ago I did a review on Boots No7 Cleanse and Care Eye Makeup Remover that wasn’t exactly a raving one however let me direct you to your local Target or CVS to pick up a bottle of it for yourself.

Picture+343

Seriously.

Go.

It’ll put you back about $7-$8 USD but it’s prob the best amount of money you’ll spend on an Eye Makeup Remover once I tell you the greatest way to use it.

Here’s what you should do:

Go and grab a bottle, go home, unscrew the top, and dump the entire contents of the bottle down the drain.

Don’t worry, don’t worry! Have I ever lead you astray?

Now fill it back up with your favorite brand of eye makeup remover (in my case I filled it with Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover).

Presto! You have an awesome bottle for your eye makeup remover now. Ok, ok so it seems really wasteful to dump out the entire contents of a bottle but honestly the bottle alone is worth more than the remover inside!

I’ve searched a few places to find a similar style empty bottle but haven’t had much success locating one so when I reviewed the Boots a few months ago and ended up hating it with a passion the next logical thing to do was dump out the contents and reuse the sincerely awesome bottle.

Muse, what’s so awesome about the bottle anyway?

The bottle has a pump style applicator similar to those you’d see on some face creams or eye creams. This simply makes an awesome, easy, simple, and mess free way to pump a few squirts of eye makeup remover onto a cotton square and go to work removing your makeup!

Picture+344

I’ve noticed my bottle of remover lasts longer now that I’m not tipping the contents on a square and spilling it all over the place!

Why the hell hasn’t anyone else thought of this great bottle for removers? It sincerely works a treat and is money well spent in my humblest of humble opinions. Plus you can just keep topping the bottle off as you run low. Unscrew, fill, and Bob’s your Uncle!

The Muse likey a simple way to use her eye makeup remover and although Boots remover sucks the bottle gets a big old Muse Approval for purchase!

musegold

Try it out! Promise you’ll love it!

P.S. If you’re feeling major guilty about dumping the contents of the bottle out just use the remover! When it’s finished pour in your own remover!

Sneak Peeks: Fall Collection 2008 Clinique Modern Matte Review

main1

Sometimes a girl has to broaden her horizons and look towards a new style of makeup that she may never have noticed before!

And so it goes for Clinique’s New Fall Collection for 2008 entitled Modern Matte. This isn’t the Muse’s normal style of makeup as she’s not one for matte, nudes, naturals, etc…but I’ve decided that I should bring you a different point of review since I get e-mailed so much about including nude, natural, mature colors in my posts!

Picture+3837

If you’ve said YES YES YES to any one of the above this is the collection for you!

Stay tuned for the Muse’s review on Clinique Modern Matte!

Want it?

Love matte?

Like it nude and natural?

Tell the Muse!
