NYX Sensual Mood Gloss Review & Swatches

Hey Guys!

So sorry for the lack of communication lately. I have a lot of comments to get through and feels like ages since we last talked. How are you doing? I’ve been swamped. Life, both personal and professional, has been getting in the way of Musings. I hope to be back on track next week when things slow down a bit for me.

I’ll be rolling out the new look for Musings shortly too. Apologies to IE users who have had issues with my site and seeing new posts. A refresh typically takes you to new posts or try clearing your cache (this is a temporary fix until I figure out what is going on here).

What else is going on with you?

See any good movies lately? Read any good books?

Am I imagining things or have you noticed a decline in the Walking Dead’s zombie makeup? Did the budget cut hit…!? Also please, can it be off the farm time now? I’m so bored of the farm. Old McDonald had a farm and wished it was over run by zombies not humans having too many emotional moments and playing house during a plague! P.S. What’s all this about not seeing bites and scratches on zombies? Is it be airborne time now? Wink! Do gimme the good word on your Walking Dead theories, with only a few episodes left I’m waiting for the big BANG to hit.

Anyone try out the new NYX Mood Glosses?

I likey…these are kinda a cool little budget gloss available in four different formulas.

Take a look at the Sensual version, perfect gothy shade to wear for stabbing (not shooting, we need to reserve bullets) zombies in the head.

Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit & Romantic Rose Review

Biore released their Resort Nose Strips in the Summer of 2010. Seriously, what’s better than sitting around with a nose strip on than one that’s like a tropical vacation! These scented nose strips whisked you away to a private paradise as they dug deep into your pores to remove those pesky blackheads.

Hmmm maybe it was a tropical paradise for your blackheads rather than for you.

Either way, aromatherapy in nose strips, can I get a hells yes?

This year, two new scented nose strips have arrived in Japan.

Take a look, they aren’t tropical island paradises but they do bring some fun fruity, floral notes to your nose strip world!

E.L.F. Mineral Face Cleanser

Wow so cutting age, E.L.F. has a washing powder.

Seriously.

If you’re not in the know on your Asian beauty you might not know that washing powders are fairly common in various parts of Japan, Korea, etc….

What is it?

Sounds odd right? It’s simply a powder in a bottle of some sort that you shake out (like salt or sugar) into the palm of your hand and you add a little water to it to. Once you add the water it’ll lather up and you can clean your face with it. I’ve literally tried hundreds of washing powders most of which have whitening or brightening promises. I don’t particularly love washing powders as I find they are messy to work with. As here you are jugging a wet face and hands, struggling to get a bottle open to pour a powder into your hands, etc….etc….I also don’t think many of them deliver on their promises and in a few cases they end up making my skin very tight and dry after use.

I do find it completely novel that E.L.F. is one of the very first washing powders I’ve seen in the US market.

Take a look!
