Beauty Bits & Bobs
Remember the Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick I was telling you about? Turns out it’s something rather special! I do so highly suggest checking these out for yourself from Avon as they are truly good and inexpensive to boot!
Each tube is $4.99 USD and contains a beautiful sparkling shade of highly moisturizing and pigmented lip color. Who can’t love that price? The shades all contain a healthy dose of gold shimmering flecks which ends up intensifying the color of the lipstick and making your lips gleam and shine! Gorgeous!
I tried two shades but I’m heading back for more shortly as truly they are gorgeous. The two colors I tried were Ruby in Gold and Golden Wine. Ruby in Gold is a beautiful deep peach a la my favorite MAC Lipglass Pink Grapefruit (I know, I know you’re tiring of hearing about Pink Grapefruit already!). Now Gold Wine had me terrified when I first seen it! The shade takes vampy up a few notches to say the least. In the tube it’s a deep, dark almost black cherry shade….terrifying….but it applies maroon with tiny flecks of gold! Gorgeous! If you ask which shade I like more I couldn’t possibly say as they are both beautiful.
For the price and the great quality I’m slapping a Muse Approved sticker on ‘em! I loves ‘em and thinks you will to!
If you’re looking for that perfect sparkling lippie for the Holiday Season with a nice price tag, look no further Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick has you covered!

As always we never get any of the cool stuff…..
Take a gander at the awesome Sephora France Aristo Punk Collection:
Oh my god it’s so unfair Sephora on our side of the world doesn’t have these! They totally appeal to the Muse’s inner goth side!
The gloss is violet flavored and although it’s an outrageous purple it applies clear. The blush can double up as an eyeshadow if you so please! The gloss is 8,90€ and the blush is 12,90€ somewhat expensive so I won’t be bugging anyone to snag these for me in France but I can’t resist the cuteness! Although the Muse is simply TERRIFIED of spiders she loves collecting bits with them on it like jewelry, t-shirts, etc….hey I never said I was normal.
If you’re in France nab these are your local Sephora, if you’re in the US or anywhere else you’re plum out of luck! *Sniff!*

Religious Musings ahead with some comic relief……you’ve been warned!
The Muse likes to think she’s an agnostic kinda girl although on occasion she’s been known to lean towards the atheist side of the field. Now her parents did their best and sent the Muse to Catholic elementary school and an all girl’s Catholic High School but here be the Muse a few hundred years later and her beliefs are quite drastically changed from when she was a mere girl.
The Muse has decided that the best way to bring Jebus into her life was to do so with bubble bath, moisturizer, and lip balm. I mean this is surely how a Muse would gain faith right? So she set on her quest to find Jebus by taking the leap of faith into cosmetic country. Sadly, she found out that not many cosmetic brands care about the all mighty God just about the all mighty dollar!
But…now…recently…she was enlightened by the latest brand from Blue Q entitled “Looking Good for Jesus”! This was it! This would surely be my way to the Lord!
My god look at that slogan! “Look your Sunday Best! Guaranteed to help you be worthy and get noticed by the King of Kings!” This is possibly so morally and maybe politically incorrect I can’t help but piss myself laughing!
Now to get tight with Christ you can indulge in bubble bath, lip balms, and many other fabulous and heavenly items!
Find the Lord in your bathtub!
A Sparkling Hand Cream! I just knew that Jebus would love the sparkles!
Jebus Lip Balm! It says that this will be return my lips to near virgin quality! Bless Be!
Now to get the full effects of this amazing brand the Muse does recommend checking it out for yourself by clicking here!
The Muse has meditated (and prayed) on the topic and she’s decided that these items could surely change the face of Jesus, the church, and religion as we know it! If you hit the cosmetic junkies with the Lord surely the good news of Christ will spread far and wide.
Indeed…Jesus needs to consider tapping this industry!
If you’re wanting to get jiggy with Jesus do check out the Blue Q website for further details as I’m positive you’ll at the very least want the lip balm! Lord knows where your lips have been right? Best get them back to virgin-like quality fast!
Whoa…life is good….

The Muse remembers the first time she purchased a cosmetic book. It had to be 10 years or so ago and it was entitled Your Makeover: Simple Ways for Any Woman to Look Her Best by Morgen Schick. The Muse is a big supporter of Morgen Schick and her amazing array of awesome cosmetics and her book was quite great at creating a flawless, natural look.
Recently the Muse was introduced to another makeup book which is the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual. The Muse finished this book in a day! I took it to bed with me one night and didn’t stop reading until it was completely done. Although much of what was discussed I already know I still felt like the book was an awesome manual for those who are just starting out in the cosmetic world.
The book covers many topics such as picking a moisturizer and foundation for your skin tone and type, how a good diet influences your skin and body, application of concealer, foundation, eye makeup, and more! The book has a solid index of just about everything you want or need to know about makeup and application. Granted, the book does contain the most basic (no complex application methods here just straight to the point) of information but this is actually what makes it so appealing as the simplicity of the techniques are easy to follow and understand! The book covers virtually all aspects of makeup but it also covers details such as photographer and becoming a makeup artist.
All in all it’s a rather interesting compilation of great tips and tricks! I think it’s well worth picking up if you’re a beginner to makeup application or you’re just seeking to brush up on your current skills!
I enjoyed it and I’m quite happy to have it on my bookshelf as I definately learned a thing or two after reading it!
You can nab yours from Amazon.com
