main header1

My friend Angel, Stefan, Nick and I are headed to Comic Con this weekend!

Wahoooooooooooooooooo!

Anyone in New York headed over? If so do e-mail me maybe we can meet up and discuss geeky bits and some cosmetics too!

Some of thee most awesome people are going to be at Comic Con this year such as…drum roll please…Neil Gaiman, Guillermo Del Toro, Doc Hammer, Stan Lee, Grant Morrison, and a slew of other geeky people that the Muse will be bowing down to this weekend! Oh wait scratch that Doc Hammer isn’t so special! That man whores himself at every convention!

I’m particularly excited about Neil Gaiman as he’ll be doing a reading! So awesome! I’ve been in a funk for the past few days so this will surely cheer my gloomy self up!

For details on purchasing tickets click on over to the website and maybe join the Muse in a day of Geeky fun!

Beauty on a Budget: Mini Bourjois Paris First Impressions, Haul, and General Babbling

My mate Rows from Mostly Makeup sent me over some Mini Bourjois Paris from jolly old England! Thanks Rows the Muse loves you lots and lots and lots!

This is my first time trying out Mini and I love it! I love the regular Bourjois Paris line anyway and this is amazing quality and just as good as the full size products!

I’m shocked and delighted at how great these are. It’s really nice to be able to indulge in such a cute, inexpensive cosmetic that has the quality to back itself up!

I know a few people aren’t really loving Bourjois’s normal baked eyeshadows. For whatever reason you might have for hating baked eyeshadows you’ll be able to happily indulge in Mini as the shadows are not baked. These are just regular old eyeshadows with great pigmentation for the price!

The shadows do not come with a compact and I believe they are around $6 or so each. I’m not sure if they fit into a MAC quad as I haven’t tried. You can purchase a cute little cardboard box which holds three shadows which costs $2! Not a bad deal in my opinion!

The range carries not only eyeshadows but a ton of other mini items such as gloss, nail polish, pigments, etc…! I haven’t tried everything but I do like what I see so far!

The pigments are probably my favorite of the lot. They aren’t sheer by any means and you get a nice beautiful finish with them! Very pigmented for the price and just enough in the jar to last ages! I wish MAC pigments were available in this size!

Finally the lipgloss is the exact same formula as the regular size! It’s just cheaper and smaller! It has a little string you can use to attach it to your iPod, Cellphone, Etc…!

All in all Mini Bourjois Paris is definately something to keep your eyes out for! I know Ulta is now selling some of the line which is awesome as it was unavailable stateside prior to that! I’m hopeful that maybe Sephora will catch up and start carrying this!

If it’s inexpensive you seek without forsaking good quality this is exactly something you might try! These are excellent for traveling light as well or for those of you who are unable to finish larger size products!

Tried these?

Love ‘em?

Tell the Muse!

US Drugstore Steals and Deals

A few readers had expressed absolute delight and curiosity when I had posted a few of the sale pages from various drugstores here in the US a few weeks ago!

So I thought I’d do so again! Bit boring if you live in the US and are privy to this stuff all the time but I think it’s a bit fun for folks living in Europe, Asia, Etc…!

Soooooooo enjoy!

The following are taken from various sale pamphlets from CVS, Walgreens, Etc…!

Something that might particularly interest international readers is the money back guarantee on cosmetics!

Friday Night with Doctor Who

I have to stay home and stop my entire life on Friday night as the good Doctor is appearing on my telly screen April 18th! Cancel everything! Clear my schedule!

Just a friendly non cosmetic note from the Muse that Doctor Who, Season 4, returns on the Sci/Fi Channel Friday night (I’m gasping for breath in excitement)!

Set your Tivos!

Does it gives you tingles when he says, “I’m the Doctor, I’m a Timelord!” or is it only me?

ya ya I know how annoying Catherine Tate is but what can you do!

Remind yourself how funny she can be by watching this clip:

It’s so difficult to choose who wins for most annoying…Catherine..Kylie..Catherine…Kylie…DO NOT WANT! Can it be Rose time again? Billie where iz you the Muse misses you! Put me out of my bloody misery pleaze! I’d settle for Sarah Jane Smith in her 80′s at this point!

If you’re not feeling David you can always take a blast through the past with the Muse’s very favorite Doctor, the one, the only Mr Tom Baker!

No one can replace the quirk that Tom Baker brought to the Doctor!

The hardest regeneration I went through! *sniff*

The Doctor is, was, and always will be Muse Approved!

Sorry sometimes you have to suffer through some of these Non Cosmetic, Geeky Bits that the Muse loves so much now back to our regularly scheduled Cosmetic Babblings…….
