Up Ahead, A Look Into the Future of MuseMedia

Here’s a little sneak peak at what’s up ahead for blog updates!

-Staple Brush Video Blog
So many people ask me about my brush collection, which brushes are best, which are my staple brushes, which are used for what part of my eye area, etc….I’ll be doing a video blog about this very shortly which will include all the brushes I own, ones I absolutely can’t live without, and where I use them on my eyes and face!

-FOTD’s
Few people have expressed how much they miss my Face of the Day pictures! I’ve been a bit remiss in adding any new ones up! My cam whoring days have been bleak as I find myself always late in the morning to do them! I’ll be adding new pictures up soon! Anyone who asked for a particular palette FOTD please know I haven’t forgotten and will of course get to them!

-Japanese Cosmetic Buying Guide
The guides for Japanese Cosmetics are coming along very well and I hope to have part two up very shortly for your viewing pleasure!

-Questions, Answers, Recommendations
I get ALOT of messages on youTube, via e-mail, etc..asking me questions about application, questions about cosmetics, and general questions about recommendations for certain products! I’d love to open a section up just for general questions, answers, and recs! That’ll be something I’ll be doing soon!

-A Cosmetic Junkie Forum
I’m currently working on opening up a forum because I truly believe that all good cosmetic junkies should have a place to conjugate and get into trouble icon smile There are many forums for makeup junkies already out there but the general idea of having my own where I can do reviews, FOTD’s, etc..is really appealing to me! That’s something I am currently working on!

-Videos
More Musemedia videos are in the works! Youtube doesn’t like me to babble much and I’m cut down to speaking for 10 minutes at a time! I’m currently looking into uploading the videos and serving them to you in a better format, recorded with my MiniDV, and served from my own server! This means better quality for you, faster loading times, and longer videos (I won’t need to have several videos floating around at once when I can just have one long video). As I work on this I’ll continue to use Google Video and Youtube as the main home for Musemedia Video Blogs!

-Your Content!
Their is NOTHING I love more than hearing from other people, seeing their FOTD’s, listening to their reviews on products, seeing their hauls, stashes of makeup, etc….I’ll be doing blogs asking for content soon from everyone! I’d love to have a weekly submission of pictures, reviews, etc…from the readers!

I think that’s about all I have in the works now and plenty of it will keep me busy! Thanks to everyone for stopping by and reading my absolute insanity! The numbers can’t lie as I’ve had a steady stream (little miss show off here hehe) of 415-450 visitors a day and quite a few spurts of over 1000 last week! icon eek

I can’t thank everyone enough for visiting me here! It’s truly a passion and I adore sharing it with each and every one of my fellow cosmetic whores and general junkies!

Cheers to us!

Lorac Starry-Eyed Baked Eyeshadow

Hmmmmmmm now here’s something I can finally get excited about this Fall! Lorac has three new baked eyeshadow that promises I’ll shine like a super star if I buy them (I don’t really need these as I already am quite a star as is! I’m joking! I’m joking! No one throw any tomatoes please!).

The three colors are Evening Star (a blue trio), Rising Star (a green trio), and Shining Star (a bronze trio). These are all limited edition and $24 each!

Bit pricey for a trio but if they are contain as much sparkle and shimmer as they promise it’ll be worth it!

They are on my wish list!

Stashes and Storage

PJ from A Touch of Blusher sent me this fantastic link!

I adore seeing how other people store products and just generally like to see what they have in their stashes! Dunno if this makes me nosy or curious!

This blog has some great pictures of vanities, stashes, and storage! When I view other girls stashes (why does that somehow sound perverted?!) I feel less lonely in my cosmetic ocean (without a life vest)!

The Illusion of Hollywood, A Non Cosmetic Blog

There is, in my humblest, lowly opinion, such a thing, as taking too many liberties.

This be a perfect example:

Your thoughts?

Perhaps I’m too much of a purist to give this it’s proper dues (Am I the only one that finds it deeply disturbing they choose an American actress to portray Jane freaking Austen! The height of blasphemy! How did England let us get away with this?!?!? I believe the BBC even had a doing in this! My god the world must be coming to an end I say!)!

Appeasing Your Hunger for Japanese Cosmetics Part 1: An Introduction

‘ello girlies (and guys)!

I had quite a few questions in regards to “OH MY GOD WHERE CAN I GET JAPANESE COSMETICS!!!!!!!?”

The Muse has some gorgeous friends in her life that do her shopping for her! Without these lovely people in her life she’d be quite remiss of Japanese goodies in her train case! My god the HORROR! *insert scared, terrified looking face here*

Sometimes busy schedules also means that they are unable to get me my little bits and ship them over icon sad (I say “little bits” so it makes me appear less obsessed than I actually I am teehee!)

When these horrible things occur the Muse must search, search, search for alternative ways of locating her Japanese crack…errr…I mean Japanese cosmetics!

Our very own, gorgeous Fleck has some great hints, tips, and general tricks for obtaining what she wants! She’s passed some great ideas off to the Muse about where to locate good cosmetics to satisfy her lemmings! Do visit her reviews on MUA! They are my bible when purchasing!

The Muse also has her own toolbox of locating interesting little bits and pieces to appease the insatiable hunger for Japanese cosmetics!

Finding decently priced Japanese cosmetics is a difficult job my friends but with a little hard work you can find somewhat good priced deals here and there icon wink

This will entry will be in several parts which will also include a video blog to go along with it! I hope it helps satisfy your lemmings for great cosmetics!
