Beauty Bits & Bobs
If you read my blog daily you might have heard me mention that I recently fell in love with Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup. I’ll be doing a review on it shortly but the one thing I would like to mention is how much I love the packaging! The application on this mimics Philosophy’s Supernatural Airbrush Canvas and Bare Escentuals Rare Minerals.
After reading about Everyday Minerals and the empty puff jars they sell on Vanessa’s blog I decided I needed to purchase a few for myself! These are identical to the Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup applicator!
I’m thrilled to bits that they have these! I’m not the biggest fan or supporter of mineral make up but I felt like Surreal Skin applied so well due to this style packaging so I purchased two of these empty puff jars and I’ll be emptying some long forgotten Bare Escentuals Mineral Foundation Powder into one to see if this improves my low opinion of the powder! The other jar I’ll be using for the Maybelline Mineral Powder Powder Foundation who knows maybe this will redeem my poor opinion of it!
These are only $5 USD each so you can’t really go wrong by grabbing a few. I think I’m going to invest in a few more to use with some loose powders blushes I have.
Have these already?
Ideas how to use ’em?
NARS gets some more love this week with my Summer Must Have Nail Polish for my toes! NARS Nail Polish in Schiap is my latest discovery of coolness!
At first glance of the bottle this looks like a really cheap, gaudy fuchsia but once it’s on..oh LORD….loves it!
It’s a beautiful cherry pink! That’s the only way I can describe it. Can we have a blush and a lip gloss like this please NARS? Thanks from the Muse and your fans!
I can’t really describe the color but it’s worth hoping into Sephora to peek at! It’s a cross between fuchsia and a reddish pink and the outcome is a simply divinely gorgeous shade!
See for yourself:
The Muse is loving this shade and her toes are happily wiggling with it on!
Perfect shade for the Summer!
Go grab some!
Have it already?
Like the swatch?

I blogged about the NARS Summer Collection a few weeks ago and I recall one of the first items that grabbed my attention when I saw the releases was the lip gloss in Misbehave!
I got my hands on Misbehave recently and it has turned into one of my Summer Must Have Makeup items for sure!
It’s advertised as a sheer shimmering red but it’s so much more to me than a simple red color! On my lips it looks like a cross between a fiery brick red with hints of copper and orange and a shimmer of gold! It’s not a true red but more a cross between several colors that looks simply stunning on!
I brought this with me when I was on my holiday and it rarely left my lips! I’m all for variety you know me another day, another color however I sincerely loved Misbehave so much I found myself pairing it up with many of my looks!
It goes amazing with Urban Decay Baked Bronzer! I normally don’t like pairing up reds with peachy, gold shades but in this case I felt like NARS Lipgloss in Misbehave complimented those shades wonderfully!
When paired up with simple pinks it looks wonderful but when cocktailed with warmer shades you’ll get a popping Summer look from a simple gloss!
The formula contains a shimmer of gold which reflects wonderfully off of golds, corals, peaches, etc….
This color is on my Summer Makeup Must Have list! You have to give it a whirl for yourself! NARS Lipgloss in Misbehave gets a big seal of Muse Approval for purchase!
Tried it already?
