Laura Geller has started offering some of her QVC Today’s Special Value sets at retailers. The sets have a tendency to appear on QVC first but within a few months to a year they end up renamed and made available at retailers like Ulta.
Products included in the sets also become available in the general catalog or other sets which is the lead in for this post.
A reader had recently requested some swatches of the Smashbox Waterproof Powder Eye Shadow Palette #2 that came in the second shipment of my Smashbox FAQ’s 7 Piece Color Collection that was available on QVC because she had seen it on E-bay and wanted to order it.
These palettes aren’t yet available for retail but I imagine at some point Smashbox will release them.
Here’s a look at some photos and swatches of the set as requested by Natalie.
Yesterday’s post sparked alot of interest in L’Oreal Color Infallible Eyeshadow, I guess we all can’t wait to see these on our shores. As of now the shadows are available within Europe and from what I read, they are getting some rave reviews.
Two reader’s e-mailed asking what the shades were called so go ahead and jump ahead for more images and the shade names and descriptions!
A famous Japanese actress made Vitacreme B12 one of the most hyped up skincare products I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. The claims of renewed skin cells, diminishing age lines and existing wrinkles, and just generally making skin look amazing are just a few of the urban legends that surround this moisturizer or at least in my experience they are urban legends.
I’ve been using the cream on and off for a few years and recently had an e-mail from a reader asking me if I had ever tried it.
Damn straight I have and no it doesn’t jump rope and chew gum at the same time.
Here’s the deal according to the Muse!
Hope you’re all having a brilliant AM so far. Just wanted to briefly update my post from yesterday’s review of the Lush It Started With a Kiss Lip Tint. Someone had requested an FOTD using the product which I should have included with the original review, sorry.
So here it is.
Below I’m using Lush It Started With a Kiss Lip Tint on both cheeks and lips!
Hope this helps you decide if you need it!

If you asked me what my ideal perfume scent would be, I’d probably answer and say something like gummi bears!
Yeah, I’m hardcore when it comes to sweet scents. I really love fruity, sweet candy-like blends but…….I do tend to migrate to unusual ones as well like spicy florals or interesting fruity florals. I’m a Jill of all Trades when it comes to fragrance however I definitely feel most comfortable with something sweet.
A reader wrote to me recently and said, “Muse, I know you’re keen on sweet stuff but have you tried Lush Vanillary?”
Why, yes, I have.
Vanilla is outside my norm to be honest and it’s not something I seek out in my fragrances however with Lush’s name stamped all over it, it’s instantly something I purchased as soon as it released last year.
There’s one thing you should always remember about Lush, THEY KNOW how to create good fragrance.
Cheek stain is one of my makeup life’s longest wearing product. Most makeup wears off, oxidizes, and never really wears well throughout the day but you can always rely on a good cheek stain to stay put until YOU take it off. How many cosmetics do that?! Not many in my opinion!
I recently stocked up on my favorite cheek stain by Vincent Longo as there is a sale ongoing at the moment of 25% Off and a reader had requested I review the product after getting it. Strangely enough, Vincent Longo Lip and Cheek Gel is my HG (holy grail) for a very long time now but I never took a second out to review it.

Hey there, hi there.
Since Sasa is selling a slew of Shills goodies (Taiwanese beauty brand) I’ve gotten a ton of requests to review items I have in my own collection. My most recent request was from a reader who asked after the Shills Anti-Acne Cleansing Oxygen Mask and Shills Whitening Oxygen Mask.
Now I’m a big lover of Oxygen Masks of any kind so of course I had these tucked in my skincare graveyard….(that’s speaks for how well I like them eh?).
Jump ahead to hear my thoughts!
Ahhh BB Cream. It’s the heart of my coverage existence dontcha know. I promised myself that when I finally got around to writing a review for you on the Maybelline Pure Mineral BB Base I would NOT get into the politics of what a BB Cream is, why it’s wonderful, etc….
I’m going to keep that promise because we will be here all day if I get into a mega discussion about BB Cream. Allow me to direct you to my “what is a BB Cream?” post from several months ago for a brief introduction in the vast world of BB.
Now on with the review of the Maybelline Pure Mineral BB Base!
I’m plotting my holiday for Spring and debating where I want to go. Until I decide I have Bath and Body Works Passport Tahiti Island Mimosa Body Mist to keep me feeling tropical, sunny, and warm even when the wind and rain is kickin’ it up a notch outside my window!
I reviewed TokiDoki Fantastico Lip Ink for you last week, missed the review? Click it!
I got a few e-mail requests and comments asking to see the product on my lips so here it is with a little Bobbi Brown Clear Gloss on top!
Hope this helps!
Taking a note from Maybelline, Essence Soft Touch Mousse makes it’s mark on the beauty budget world.
Mmmm god I hate silicon primers but the silly cute packaging on Bihada Ichizoku FORCED me to buy it.
After my review on the Aqua Gel from Bihada Ichizoku a reader kindly requested I review the primer. Lucky enough I do in fact own it so doing the review was easy.
Bihada Ichizoku Make Up Base is a silicon base primer so I haven’t given the product as much love as I should have but it’s nice none the less!
Take a little jump!
Sorry, can’t recall who, but someone requested a review of Cure Natural Aqua Gel.
Here’s the review you requested!
