MAD Minerals FOTD

I was browsing around FOTD’s the other day and I came across a most delightful FOTD that I just fell in love with!

The lovely Julie has granted the Muse’s request to feature it on Musings of a Muse. How exciting our first guest FOTD!

I was so delighted with this FOTD that I went and ordered all the minerals she used to create the look! For about or under $10 bucks you can create the same look at MAD Minerals! Do check them out!

Fantastic job Julie! You’ve inspired the Muse!

If you have an FOTD you’d like featured do e-mail me at [email protected]

How eye popping is this look?

Guerlain Golden Lash Top Coat Mascara

The Muse’s most favorite beauty gossip Betsy has alerted me to the fact that Sephora is slowly updating the site with the Guerlain Holiday Collection.

And Betsy would be very right.

Not much so far but my little eye did spy the Guerlain Golden Lash Top Coat Mascara.

As Seen on Sephora.com:
P196505 hero

The top coat is $30 and happily encrusts your lashes with bits of sparkling gold! Yum!

Wish List anyone?

Givenchy Holiday Collection Pictures

While you are most eagerly awaiting the Muse to get her shipment of the Givenchy Holiday goodies you can head over to visit with the most lovely Iris and see close up pics she has on her blog of the entire collection.

These pictures are the best I’ve seen so far in regards to detail! She’s even included the nailpolishes that I knew nothing about!

Click on over and visit with my favorite beauty addict icon wink

Nordstrom and Saks Beauty Event

I should have blogged about this way earlier but I’ve had so much going on in my life at the moment it utterly slipped the mind and didn’t pop back into my brain until I was discussing it with a reader and friend on here!

Now is a good a time as any to nab the new holiday collections at Saks and Nordstrom since both are having their Beauty Events at the same time.

I’m sure you all know the drill icon wink but if not the Muse brings you some Steals and Deals a little early!

Head on over to Saks and spend $100 on Beauty Items or More (Might the Muse suggest the Givenchy Holiday Collection?) and recieve a tote bag stuffed with all sorts of yummie goodies!

And of course Nordies competes with that offer and counteracts with it’s deluxe beauty tote filled with juicy morsels after you spend $95 or more (Might the Muse suggest Alexander Mcqueen for MAC?). Your gift will automatically enter your cart as soon as your total reaches $95!

Purchasing cosmetics is always a joy for the Muse but getting something free while doing the purchasing is truly lovely!

Happy Shopping!
