Well gee I must be asleep because I didn’t notice that Fresh recently introduced a new primer to their collection. I was in Atlantic City this past weekend and while at the Bluemercury Apothecary Spa I came across Fresh Rose Fresh Face Primer.
Read ahead for the deets!
This is the third release of primer from Fresh with High Noon and Twilight already a part of the collection. Although Fresh Rose Primer could easily be mistaken for Fresh Twilight at a glance and perhaps considered a dupe rest assured in texture and formula they are considerably different. I have Fresh Twilight and it’s an iridescent finish that casts a highlight on cheeks and face. After swatching Fresh Rose I was quite delighted that it was simply a white, fresh smelling primer that absorbed easily without leaving behind a finish of any kind.
Where as High Noon and Twilight cast a glow to skin Rose simply lays the foundation for a fresh, dewy face that you can follow up with makeup or just enjoy au natural.
I didn’t buy it as I had already indulged too much that day at the Spa but I’m thinking it made end up in my basket shortly. It’s available at Fresh’s site right now if you find you’re yearning for it after reading this.
Anyone a lover of Fresh primers?
I admit I have an unhealthy obsession with Estee Lauder shimmer powders but lord above have you seen this one yet:
Combing a marbelized shadow with shimmering golds, apricots, pinks, and peaches Estee Lauder Glided Rose Shimmer Powder screams Muse friendly! It looks positively lush doesn’t it? I’m so running to my nearest counter to have a lookiee and a swatch, I’m thinking it’s a WANT!
Like everyone else in the makeup world I strive for perfection. I want to look as flawless as humanly possible. Which is why Cover FX The Big Cover Up 3 Step Essentials is currently topping my WANT list!
Cover FX The Big Cover Up 3 Step Essentials is a set made up of professional quality products to achieve incredible coverage for a flawless, beautiful complexion.
Baby I’m a want you!
Cover FX is a camouflage makeup that’s heavily pigmented to work at covering even the worst flaws, birth marks, tattoos, etc….This kit includes everything for covering minor to major imperfections.
The set includes:
- Cover FX SkinPrep FX
- Cover FX Total Coverage Cream Foundation (3 Shade for mixin’ and cocktailin’ for your unique shade)
- Cover FX Setting FX
- Cover FX Precision Foundation Brush
- How To Video
Can I tell you I’m totally enamored with this set and want it badly. The only thing that’s prevented me from fully exploring Cover FX is having to sit down and have my color matched for me. I’m not a fan of MA’s touchin’ and feelin’ all over my face so I haven’t experimented with the wide range of Cover FX foundations. Which brings me to why this kit is so appealing. It’s only available in four color combination which totally breaks down the overwhelming amount of colors available in the standard foundation. Plus it has three shades so even if I get a set that doesn’t match me completely I can still mix my proper shade.
But…ado…the $75 price tag hurts a little bit. I believe what’s included is pretty much trail size so I’m wincing slightly at the price.
Doesn’t stop me from wanting this kit though! I’m trying hard not to submit, a little moral support please?
Can I tell you that I had Sonia Kashuk Sheer Magic Mineral Face Palette in my cart during my last trip to Target but I kept taking it out and putting it back, taking it out and putting it back.
Needless to say I left the store without the bloody thing because I’m so bleeding indecisive.
That’s where you come into play…help a Muse out….

There isn’t any question I seriously want this little wonder palette. Is palette even the proper term to use? It’s basically a stackable set of mineral foundation, mineral blush, and a creamy concealer. There isn’t any palette here but hey whatever Sonia wants to name it is fine and dandy by this Muse!
It’s only $14.99 but my cart was loaded down and that extra $15 bucks for something that may or may not be good was kinda making me worry my bottom lip and bite my finger nails deciding did I really need mineral foundation in my life? Especially considering we don’t get along so well and all. The choice was turning into should we impeach Nixon or not. It was life altering that much I’ll tell you.
So the question is, do I need Sonia Kashuk Sheer Magic Mineral Face Palette in my life or is it something I can safely skip?
I’ll be honest and say the choice has kept me up at night for the better part of the week and I’m having a bad case of non buyer’s remorse and wishing I had indulged.
It’s so damn hard being the Muse sometimes.
Sometimes my lems are big sometimes they are small. At the moment they are a teeny tiny size of under £2. What a steal!
Check it after the jump!
Vaseline makes a comeback in the UK with an amp’ed up version of simple everyday petroleum jelly with a hint of color. Yes, yes we all know my love affair with Smith’s but let me tell you Smith’s costs a whole heap of alot more than £1.49.
Available at Boots and Superdrug Vaseline Rosy Lips is pretty much the same concept of my beloved Smith’s but with a glossier, smoother finish and a heck of alot more pigment from the reviews I’ve heard around the town. Hey, DollFace has my favorite review of this tiny tin of joy!
Yes, I think I need more Vaseline in my life, particularly if it’s rosy in color.
If you wants it you’ll have to put your head together and do a little Sherlock Holmes searchin’ as it’s only available in the UK from what I’ve seen.
