I’m still making my own kind of music and singing my own special song when it comes to Pink glosses! As you know I’ve been obsessed with bubblegum pink lately! You didn’t know that? ZOMG! Click and you’ll be magically whisked away to a page that will tell you more about the Muse’s obsession with pink!
Anyway….my love of bubblegum pink is here and alive and possibly kicking but just slightly on the back burner as I explore my options for Summer. I know, I know it’s only March blah blah blah! I can’t help myself! Summer is coming and I must be prepared!
Today I was rotating my makeup (I’m allowed to do that as I have so much!) and I came across a favorite Lipshine of mine by Morgen Schick. I adore lipshines! Nicely but not overly Pigmented, Shiny, Tasty, and Gorgeous what more could a girl want in a gloss?
I was rotating some colors and I came across a Morgen Schick Lipshine in Tangerine Sorbet. I had to share this with you guys because it’s possibly thee most gorgeous shade of yum I have in my collection!
I have plenty of oranges, peaches, corals, etc…but truly this is the best “pop” of orange I own! It’s a beautiful true tangerine shade that’s not outrageous but has just enough brightness to make it look amazing on!
I’m working the close up shots aren’t I? Go on tell me how awesome I am!
This is a super hot shade for Summer and definately worth having a look around on E-bay for!
The Muse Approves it big time!
Can’t find it on E-bay? Check out Morgen Schick website to purchase it!
Laura Geller was on QVC a few days ago as any good twisted cosmetic junkie would do I recorded the showing. I was fast forwarding through most of it but I came across this little kit she did and it intrigued me!
The pictures actually don’t do the product justice. The lipshade appears on screen to be a very lovely burnt red color and the gloss on top made it into a golden dark peachy shade. It was rather nice on the model that was sporting it.
They kept raving on and on about how good it smelled and tasted but no one said exactly what it was smelling and tasting of. I can only assume it’s some tropical taste hence the name!?
The packaging also sold me as it’s studded in pink glittery bits. Cutes!
The set is available from QVC for $24.25 USD under Item Number A6451. I haven’t ordered it because I’m playing good girl at the moment and saving my little pennies for Summer releases however I am curious and I do have a little bit of a burning lem in my stomach! If you’re familiar with the color PS Kiss this reminds me of that thus the need to purchase it is hard upon me!
Own it already?
Just love Laura’s cosmetics?

I was seeking a good program and all along it’s been right under my nose!
So what does this mean…?
It means you can speak to me live whenever I am online! Yay! If you look towards my left hand column and scroll down a tiny bit you’ll come across a tiny bubble that reads “Chat with theMuse”. Click it…go on you know you wanna……just be sure your pop up blocker is off!

A window will pop up and connect you live to me! And we can chat, discuss the weather, makeup, whatever your little heart desires!
As long as the little radio button is “green” that means I may be at my computer and around for a little chitter chatter! When the button is gray it means I’m currently offline!
I’m pretty excited to finally have this available for you guys to use because I get so many questions and emails a day I think this might make things a bit easier!
Hope you enjoy it!
I’ve gotten alot of comments mentioning KATE as not being pigmented enough or not the best quality, etc…
This made me want to do a review of my own on KATE because it’s one of my favorite Japanese Brands and I think the quality is fantastic!
One of my favorite products in the KATE lineup are the Glamtrick palettes. They are sincerely some of the best quality palettes I’ve come across Japan side. The colors blend fantastically and the smoky eye looks you can create are truly fabulous.
KATE has an edge about it that other brands don’t and this reflects in the darker color selection available from KATE. In particular the Glamtrick palettes sport darker colors used to create very interesting smoky eye looks.
The Glamtrick palettes contain a total of five colors. One light shade of shadow, one dark contrasting shadow, one base, one liner, and a shimmering shade used over your completed look.
The palettes are at 1600 yen (about $16 USD) and in my personal opinion give alot of bang for your buck!
In order to create each look I used the lightest shade as a base on my entire lid, I proceeded to stroke the next medium shade from my lid to my crease, after this I packed on the darkest in my crease and on half of my top eye lid. To complete my look I lined my bottom and lower lash line with the shadow liner and dusted on a bit of the sparkling/shimmer shadow on top of the entire look and Bob’s your uncle the perfect smoky look!

KATE has an entire line of various palettes but I thought I’d share the Glamtrick ones with you as they are my favorite in the line! The palettes make creating what I called a “colored” smoky eye look goof proof and they take the smoky look to a new level with interesting shades instead of your standard gray/black look.
KATE’s Glamtrick palettes are most definately Muse Approved for their inexpensive cost, quality and pigmentation, and ease of use!
Yearning to try KATE?

Good Morning Lovies!
You may (or may not) have noticed that Musings has undergone a few minor changes. One important change for me was having a new domain name setup. You can now find Musings of a Muse at it’s new address, www.musingsofamuse.com!
Yay! Exciting! If you by chance link me on your site if you could please as a personal favor to me update your link to reflect the change I’d be extremely grateful!
Secondly, you’ll notice my layout changed a tiny bit. I felt like my three columns were a bit cluttered so I now have a column on the left and a column on the right and finally my posts are smack in the middle!
Thirdly, I’ve added a cbox off to the right hand side of my column which you can use to comment randomly or just to say hey!
I have a few ads up as well! If you find these irritating do let me know and I’ll try to come up with something else as I never want Musings to be about “commercial” or “corporate”. That’s not my aim with Musings at all so if you feel overwhelmed by ads you should tell me and I’ll do everything I can to reduce the clutter so you can have the content you come here for!
I’ve temporarily moved my live chat room. I know it’s been ages since I held a live chat but I promise I’ll be adding it up soon and having a live chat
A few items that are upcoming as you know are the Musings forum and some podcasts as well!
That’s about it!
I hope you’re as excited as I am about the changes! Maybe they’ll make your life a bit easier too when browsing around here as I believe it’s better organized now!
Much Love and Hugs,
From your Muse.
