Most days of my life are spent relishing the release of brand new makeup. But lately I’ve noticed that I get equally excited about skincare, actually, thinking about it now, I get REALLY excited about skincare lately. Dunno what changed. Perhaps I’m a little burned out from one too many eyeshadows but I really enjoy exploring new skincare lately and I even notice I’ve been stockpiling moisturizers, cleansers, and toners like they might go out of style at any given time.
This week I’m trying out the new Lumene releases that you can check out at your local CVS.
So far it’s a likey!

Ok, story time.
Is it me or do you find it utterly irritating when eye makeup remover is dubbed as being for eyes and lips? That’s a total pet peeve of mine. Seriously, how many people are sporting lippies that are so bulletproof you need to remove that crap with eye makeup remover. “Hi honey I’m home can you pass the eye make remover so I can remove my lipstick? k, thanks! Let’s have dinner!”
Just for the record I’ve never found myself wiping down my lips with a cotton pad saturated in eye makeup remover and I probably never will. I understand the mentality of it and that on occasion people are sporting some sort of lipstick that perhaps…kinda…sorta…may need to be removed with something stronger than a mere tissue but honestly 1. my lipstick doesn’t even MAKE it to the end of the day so I do not need a liquid remover for it and 2. If it’s still hanging around I simply wipe it off with a tissue.
Anyone with me?
But anyway, ’nuff ranting from me. That rant was brought to you by my current review actually, Lumene Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover (for eyes and grrrrrrrrrr lips).

So I think I’m actually part of the club now. I’m not entirely sure but I think CVS likes me. Prior to this past month anytime I walked into a drugstore within the US I heard Angels weep. I was actually scared the place would crumble down around my head after passing the threshold. The Muse does not do drugstore makeup and/or skincare. But so many new items have been popping up that have made me curious so I do venture in time to time plus so many of you expressed wanting affordable makeup reviews that I couldn’t simply ignore what you requested. So indeed I’ve been heading to CVS the past month….but the club…
Well I got some sort of coupon in the mail because they have this like extra card thingy that gets you bonus bucks kinda like the Boots Reward Card, not as good mind you. Anyway they sent me $5 off anything in the store via an e-mail so I guess this means I have an in now, I’m part of the secret club, coupons and all!
No seriously I did get the coupon so I did decide I might as well spend it. I ended up hauling Lumene Vitamin C+ Energy Cocktail with the coupon. Mind you not because of the formula but because it looked so pretty, literally like some fancy cocktail, it just needed a little paper umbrella and I’d say it was downright tropical.
Have a jump to see why it’s my latest obsession!
