Now is a great time to stock up on palettes, shadows, and more at a 30% savings! Yay! I’m going over to have a look in a few seconds but before I do I thought I’d review one of the Best of Urban Decay Gift Sets for you!

You might have guessed that the Muse loves to match so of course gift sets that contain an array of matching items are always appealing! The new Best of Urban Decay Baked Gift Set contains everything you need to create a sizzling hot Holiday eye look by combining Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Baked, Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner, Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Bourbon, and Urban Decay Primer Potion all for $32 USD (and just think at 30% off that would be $22 USD or so!).

Even though these sets were introduced for the Holiday the Muse feels like the Best of Urban Decay Baked Gift Set is ideal for the Fall as the color combination reminds me of falling leaves! Baked eyeshadow is a shimmering bronze shade that matches up perfectly with the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Bourbon and topped with a bit of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Baked you’ll be smoking!

To create my look below I used Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Baked all over my lid and crease, lined my lower waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Bourbon, and completed my look by lining my upper lash line with Urban decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Baked. Since I was busy being Baked I brushed some Urban Decay Baked Bronzer on my cheeks as well!

Beauty on a Budget: Softlips Review & Contest

Meet my favorite budget friendly stocking stuffers for the Holiday:

Picture+004

If you read my review on Rosebud Salve you probably already hold the key to the secrets of Life, the Universe, and Everything. What you probably didn’t realize is that the second key to the universe is held within these little duo packages of joy!

I’ve been using Softlips since…hmm forevers. The Muse and her sister have happily purchased Softlips for a very long time, years and years. I can remember Softlips Lip Balm being one of my very first makeup purchases so indeed it’s been a while!

Honestly aside from Rosebud Salve I haven’t met a better option for keeping my lips happy during the cold weather skin! I’ve always had one of these little guys tucked into my purse for quick touch ups on the go. They glide on incredibly well and offer a nice seal of protection for cold, bitter New York weather plus they taste sooooo good! And let’s not forget they have SPF 20!

Softlips have introduced two new Limited Edition Duo Packs that contain two full size Softlips Balms. The first package holds Vanilla and Mint flavored balms which are great to use alone or layer them on top of each other for a Vanilla Mint flavored pout! The second package contains my personal favorite Cherry! It also contains Sugar Cookie which you can combine with Cherry to create Cherry Sugar Cookies! Yum! The Muse gets really excited about the little things in life.

Many of you have written me emails asking I feature some budget friendly options for cosmetics, gifts, etc..and I think that these Softlips Duo Packs are ideal for budget stocking stuffers! Each pack costs around $3.50-$3.99 USD which isn’t too bad a deal at all! They make very cute gift toppers as well to tape to the top of a bigger gift or to stick in a Holiday gift bag!

Yo can learn more about Softlips by visiting them at www.softlips.com!

I know quite a few folk were disappointed that the Harajuku Girl Solid Perfume Coffret Contest was not open to the US residents! Boo! Hiss!

But the good news is today I have two Limited Edition Packages of Softlips to give away to readers within the US and abroad! Simply comment below and I’ll be choosing two random readers to get one of the two packets I have! The contest begins today and ends on Friday so Good Luck!

Sephora Friends and Family In Store Event

Hey guys!

I’m sure you’re busy little bees getting your items all placed in your cart online at Sephora! But if you’re one for heading in store to swatch, look at, and touch items you may want to take advantage of the Sephora Friends and Family In Store Event this weekend on Saturday from 8-10 am!

I got a Beauty Insider inviting me to participate in this event but I know not everyone did so I took the liberty to white out my name and slap it up here for everyone to enjoy!

If you’re a Beauty Insider just print this out and take it to the store on Saturday morning and the Muse thinks they will honor your request to get 20% off your total order!

Happy Shopping!

Harajuku Girl Solid Perfume Coffrets Contest

clipart+contest

Hey Guys!

Happy Friday!

Next week I’m bringing you a Week in Review of the brand new Harajuku Girl Fragrances. I covered these before but I wanted to do an individual review of each perfume because I got an overwhelming amount of e-mails asking how these are, if they are worth purchasing, key notes in the blends, etc…etc…Rather then answer all those e-mails I thought I’d just post a review a day of each fragrance giving you further details about each one, what my favorites are, what they smell like, etc….

In honor of my Week in Review I’ll be doing a little contest here on Musings! I know how much you adore my quirky contests where I do my geeky trivia but I’m going to keep this one rather clean and simple!

You have two chances to win one of two Harajuku Girl Solid Perfume Coffrets I have available. The coffrets have all five of the scents available in one cute gift box so you can try each of them out for yourself! Cutes right?!
