You may remember our guest Face of the Dayer Julie from a few days ago! She had done this AMAZING purple look that the Muse fell in lust with! After seeing it I ran (I never walk when cosmetics are around) over to the MAD Minerals website and immediately placed an order for the exact same colors that Julie used on her eyes!

So I’m mighty impressed with these piggies I picked up at MAD Minerals. For one thing they are cheap as day old chips with great pigment and fantastic hold through the day into the evening. Another fantastic thing is their catalog is pretty darn huge and they have an array of colors to suit any mood or taste!

1/4 tsp. Sample Jar is $2.25 and believe me a little goes a long way so that small amount will last you ages!

The texture of these is very weird because inside the jar they appear thin and almost transparent but as soon as you apply you’ll notice right away the color pay off they pack is pretty huge!

The company sells larger sizes if you’re loving a particular color, I personally just brought some sample size jars.

I ended up buying all the colors Julie used and they also threw in three sample jars which was very generous!

They shipped these within a day and I had them within two days or so! Very fast turnaround time!

Overall it’s worth a look at and the Muse deems it fit for purchase!

A special thanks to Julie who’s enabled me to the wonders of these pigments!

If you’re wanting these at the moment Barbi from MAD Minerals informs me that they are going to do a Halloween Sale shortly with 20% off the entire site!

Off to make my list of goodies I want!

Technical Difficulties

Hello Pretties!

Musings of a Muse is experiencing some slight technical difficulties that I thought you should know about. If you’re wandering around my archives (how the very dare you! Get out of my closet!) you’ll notice some of the font color on my entries is off and you’re unable to read any of it!

I’m slowly switching around the html code on those entries so the text will be readable!

I apologize for the problem icon sad It probably occurred during my big move from mySpace to Blogger!

Please excuse the mess while the Muse cleans it all up nice and tidy for you!

Chat with the Muse

in Chat

Hello there!

The Muse would like to chat with you icon wink

I guess the question to ask is do you want to chat with the Muse icon wink

I know many of you are in Asia, Europe, and spread out across the US (and other exotic lands) so the best thing to do when arranging this chat is to ask what particular times are good for everyone!

So if you’re interested in having a live chat with readers, myself, and maybe fellow Beauty Blog Members do comment and let me know times and dates you are free!

I’ll choose the time and date according to how many people reply and what looks like a good time frame!

The last time I held a chat only one reader, Sarah, turned up sadly and quite a few of my fellow bloggers on the Beauty Blog Network!

We had a rather fabulous time (at least I think we did lol) and Sarah was an absolute joy to speak too!

I know that’s because many of you are 5-6 hours off from my own time so this is a good way to see when everyone is free!

Soooooooooooooooooo…..

If you’d like to chat about all good things cosmetic and otherwise my ears are open! Comment box at the ready! Throw some dates and times my when we can all get together for a giggle and a babble!

Bobbi Brown Forest Metallics FOTD

Gosh after a LONG time I finally got around to doing the FOTD that was requested when I originally purchased the Bobbi Brown Forest Metallics palette!

You can see my prior FOTD (and review) using the Burnt Sugar Metallics Palette by clicking here.

You can see my first impressions about the palettes by clicking over here.

Ok….I hadn’t yet used this palette until this morning and I have to give everyone a fair warning if you haven’t used yours or if you are about to purchase this. The warning is this is a very, very, very, very dark palette. Obviously when you see the palette you’ll notice how dark the greens are but they go on even darker and it’s a bit of a challenge to create a look with this! Not to say I don’t love the palette, I most certainly do, however it is a bit hard to work with as the colors are difficult to blend correctly without the entire look looking BLACK. So a word to the wise prior to using or buying this practice caution with your application icon wink
