Musings of the Day: Wipe It All Off!


The Muse is blessed with so many incredible friends in her life but she does so wish she had more that were into makeup that way she could debate MAC Makeup Remover Wipes.

The Muse freaking loves the topic of these wipes. She adores people that go on and on about how wonderful they are, mind you the Muse thinks they are pretty special too but….

It irritates the holy hell out of me that people say these bloody things take it ALL off. But…but…but how? I love them with a passion. They don’t dry my skin out, smell amazing, make my skin feel moisturized, and remove my makeup….

HOWEVER….

They do a crap job on waterproof mascara. So technically speaking they do not get it all off yet many a fan will insist they remove EVERYTHING.

Why jebus why!

I’ve honestly never had any success getting off waterproof mascara with these. I even seen one very popular youTuber say they took of MAC Liquidlast….she must be using a different wipe than I am or she’s on crack…no freaking way are these doing that unless I scrub my eye with it like it’s a brillo pad.

Damn.

That’s my two dollar rant of the day.

Love ’em, just wish they’d do a better job with waterproof mascara and wish everyone who says they take off everything wouldn’t say that.

But you can say whatever you like in my comment box.

Spill it!

What do you think of these wipes?

It’s ok the Muse will still love you long time if you say they take off waterproof mascara…although it might be a tiny bit harder to do so after you admit that but love you she will.

Tarte multiplEYE First Impressions

Some of you may be sighing in relief and excitement over the brand new Tarte multiplEYE! I’ve been testing it out for a few days now and will be bringing you a full review in about a month’s time but for now I’ll give you a quickie sneak peek of what it’s all about!


Tarte multiplEYE is a natural lash enhancer (paraben free). This liquid formula is meant for application daily to lengthen, strengthen, and thicken lashes.

Tarte promises 152% change in the appearance of your lash length with multiplEYE. The product contains Hydroplant peptide which is clinically proven to give the appearance of longer, fuller lashes naturally using soy and amino acid proteins combine to form an essential super-protein base that fortifies and nourishes your lashes.

According to reports Tarte multiplEYE test 100% of subjects reported an increase of lash softness and appearance of lash length while 90% experience an increase in lash thickness.

Some of the benefits of Tarte multiplEYE is it’s easily obtained at your local Sephora, no need for a prescription. It does not contain parabens, prostaglandin, or any other harmful ingredients so you can feel comfortable and safe applying this to lashes that are so close to your eyes.

The product comes housed in a square tube similar to that of a mascara tube. It’s a clear formula and has a straight line lip style brush for application. The product is meant for once a day application on clean skin at the lash line as you would apply an eyeliner. However, for added results you’ll want to brush directly onto the lashes but do be careful not to get the product into your eyes. You’ll wait 60 seconds for the product to dry before applying makeup. I find it’s best to apply at night as it makes it another part of your night time regime and you aren’t worrying about dry down time during a busy morning makeup application rush.


I’ve been using it a week so far but won’t post results until at least a month’s time. If your lashes are stubby, weak, break off easily, or you just desire fuller, stronger lashes, Tarte multiplEYE may hold the key to bliss!

Check back soon for an update.

Anyone want to try?

Think it’ll work?

Steal It: Fresh Scents by Terri


The Muse recalls dishing out $48 dollars and some change for her very first Fresh Scents fragrance.

But now you can get them for some silly price on Cherry Culture, lovesssss it!

Cherry Culture has two (the 3rd is sold out) of the Fresh Scents by Terri fragrances on sale for $12 bucks each! Omg! These normally retail for $48 so it’s a considerable savings to say the least.

Peachy Keen and Berry Cute are available but the third scent, Tangerine Kiss has already left the building. I really love these and think they are def worth trying out plus the price is ridiculously low.

Go haul peeps! Go haul!

Beauty News: Etude House Website Relaunch

Bless freaking be! The Etude House website has gotten a make over and I couldn’t be more relieved (although there be a steep learning curve for those of us who can’t read Korean).


I can’t begin to tell you how SLOW and tedious the old Etude House website was. It’s not bad enough struggling through the Korean lanuage but also having to face the horrible load time, the terrible pop up promos, and the amazing amount of ridiculous sections they had going on.

Yesterday Etude House was down all day and I thought maybe there might be some sort of new launch in the works but turned out it was EH getting ready to slip into some new clothes. The new site is a good deal faster loading, doesn’t load a pop up from the get go, and seems a tad easier to navigate.

I do have to reteach myself the lay out but I’m so happy it loads fast I may just wee myself in delight (but I won’t, promise!). It’s pretty much a one shot site and everything you may need or want is right there on the main page. I’m just delighted that FINALLY Etude House did a revamp because the site just really needed major work.

If you’re like a nosy visit http://www.etude.co.kr

Happy Drooling!
