cosmetics

You ever have those very favorite products that seem so amazing, so great, so incredible that you feel like you couldn’t possibly live without them? Indeed, the Muse knows that feeling well!

Jump ahead for a few Beauty Items that I can’t live without.

Shills BB 6 in 1 BB Cream (review coming sometime soon) is something I can’t possibly live without. It’s one of thee best BB creams I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing! So much so that I’ve forsaken most every other BB Cream in my collection for it. This is love people.

Speaking of BB Creams no question that Etude House Magic Cream and InnisFree Trouble Care BB Cream are two of my other favs in the BB Cream world!


Benefit Coralista omg! I can’t think of three letters that explain how great Coralista is other than O M G. This pigmented peachy powder is my very favorite blush of all time.


On the topic of Benefit let’s not forget the awesomeness that is Thrrrob and my staple product, Benefit Lemon Aid.


I find that lately I can’t live without the very beautiful Ella Dean’s Beautiful Twist Lip Balm in Winter’s Cherry Snow Slushie Kisses. Who doesn’t like slushies? Especially cherry ones! Yum!


Although it’s sticky and tacky and ooey and gooey I probably couldn’t live without Lipstick Queen Shine Gloss. It gives my lips such incredible slippery shine plus it makes them look twice the size! Loves it!


The day NARS Super Orgasm entered my life I think the angel’s sung! What an incredible blush. Needs no commentary from me about it’s awesomeness.


I can’t live without Urban Decay Primer Potion and I don’t want to think about it not being in my life. ’nuff said.


Bobbi Brown Blush in Apricot entered into my collection quite by chance when I happened upon it at my local CCO. Ever after it’s been my staple blush and favorite shade!


Oh Bobbi your name is on my lips today! Let’s not forget how I went from feeling unsure about the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer palette and quickly having it become a staple product for me. I NEED this in my life.


Shu you know how to treat my lashes right. The cadillac of lash curlers would be my trust Shu Uemura Lash Curler, we be best buds.


Although it’s meant for aging skin I absolutely love Lancome Absolue Makeup. Flawless perfection comes to mind after use!


Speaking of perfection that would also come in my jar of Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer, nope can’t live without, can’t go for that!


Another beautiful foundation that graces my daily cosmetic regime would be Lavshuca Creamy Liquid Foundation, we loves each other for about a year now with no end in sight!


It’s Summer again so the Muse is hauling out Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in Glided Gold. Indeed, this product single handedly changed my mind about bronzers!


Life isn’t worth living without Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy in my life, golden perfection.


Mally Concealer System, worth it’s weight in gold peeps.



Majorca Majolica Mascara
probably couldn’t live without that and not willing to try either!

Lipstick Queen Saint Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos, and FOTD

Although the Muse is a known sinner she likes to think of herself in an angelic light or even saintly one if you will!

Lipstick+Queen+Saint1

Lipstick+Queen+Saint3

In order to evoke her saintly nature she gets out her Lipstick Queen Saint!

I previously reviewed Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick for you and today I’m bringing you my review on the Lipstick Queen Saint Lipstick.

You might be wondering what the different is between a Sinner Lipstick and a Saint one so allow the Muse to explain. Lipstick Queen Sinner is a matte, color rich lipstick with no shimmer, frosting, or anything else aside from straight, creamy, pigmented color.

Lipstick+Queen+Saint6

Lipstick+Queen+Saint7

Today I’m reviewing Saint and Saint happens to be a color rich formula just like Sinner. It’s pigmented with a fantastic color pay off on lips however the formula is a tad bit different. The formula of Lipstick Queen Stain is much like traditional lipsticks you’d buy from many brands with a light, moisturizing formula. Now don’t let that traditional note fool you as this isn’t like any brand of lipstick you’ve probably tried before. What sets it apart from other brands? Pigmentation. Color payoff is amazing on these lipsticks be it the Saint version or the Sinner. It’s one of the key elements that makes Lipstick Queen such a hit and amazing lipstick choice.

Color glides on perfectly with a nice moisturizing finish. If I had to choose I’d say I’m more saintly than I am a sinner as I like the moist feeling of this particularly formula when compared to the matte version of Sinner. Color payoff, as I mentioned a million times, is simply amazing. After trying two other Lipstick Queen products I’m still amazed and absolutely thrilled each time with how pigmented the products are! I’m wearing Lipstick Queen Saint in Berry below but I did think it looked slightly like the color I tried for Lipstick Queen Sinner but they are different shades however look pretty much the same. I assumed the shade was a sheer berry but it’s more of a deep peachy brown. Very nice and quite lovely with warmer eye looks!

Overall, Lipstick Queen Saint is a heavenly formula and truly a gorgeous product! Any and all Lipstick Queen products are Muse Approved for purchase! This Muse is definitely a fan of Lipstick Queen Saint.

Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick in Rouge Sinner Review, Swatches, and FOTD

The Muse has been known to sin on occasion although her mum doesn’t know so don’t mention it to her if you see her ok?

Lipstick Queen makes it pretty darn easy to sin my way through luscious, pigmented, pin up style girl lips!

Lipstick+Queen+Rouge+Sinner1

I don’t feel so guilty about sinning anymore!

Check out why after the jump…….

Prior to reviewing Lipstick Queen Sinner the Muse would like to say she hates matte lipstick just as much as she hates matte eye shadow however I absolutely loved the Lipstick Queen formula even if it was matte.

Lipstick+Queen+Rouge+Sinner2

Lipstick+Queen+Rouge+Sinner3

I’ve tried ALOT of lipsticks in my day and I’ve never come across one with such pigmented color payoff. The focus and selling point of the Sinner line is the promise of as much as 90% pigmentation within one lipstick and yes it lives up to that standard. The product contains no shimmer, no frost, just a pure, color rich finish.

Lipstick+Queen+Rouge+Sinner6

Lipstick+Queen+Rouge+Sinner7

As I’ve mentioned I have tried plenty of lipsticks from high street to low and this is by far thee most amazing product I’ve come across in regards to color payoff. The lipstick applies beautifully well and looks simply gorgeous with gloss on top. I was a tad worried that the product being so rich in color would leave me looking a bit like a clown as color tends to bleed out and apply messy but no problems at all. It applies very well and glides onto the lips like a magnet is guiding it. I felt quite like a 50’s pin up girl with such a vibrant, stunning pop of color on my lips! The shade I tried was Rouge Sinner which is an orange, coral, peachy shade which looks wonderfully warm on my lips.

Lipstick+Queen+Rouge+Sinner11

As I said I really don’t like matte lipsticks as I don’t enjoy the finish and I feel like my looks lack something without any gloss on. I think the color is amp’ed up a bit with the addition of gloss and the finish looks much nicer. I’m not sure if it’s because the product has such amazing color payoff but I noticed that my lips look fuller when using the lipstick so I suggest trying this out if you have thinner lips and are looking for something to plump them up a bit. You may be worried about matte lipstick drying your lips out, for myself I didn’t experience any drying when using the product but I do suggest topping with gloss to avoid any dry syndrome.

Who should try this:

  • Anyone who loves lipstick
  • Those who absolutely adore a pigmented, full on lip color
  • Anyone who seeks a fuller lip look
  • The not so shy girls who like a bit of pop, sizzle, and crackle to their lipsticks
  • Girls who want to sin!

All in all I was very pleased with Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick and I’ll be purchasing further colors for myself from the line. It’s truly an outstanding product. Muse Approved for purchase all the way!

Lipstick Queen Sinner Shine Hardcore Gloss Review

Billy Joel told me he’d much rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints so the Muse did just that this morning! She sinned with Lipstick Queen Sinner Shine Hardcore Gloss and sure did like all that sinning! Supposedly only the good die young so I might as we be bad and sin my way through the day with gorgeous, shiny, plump, juicy lips!

The Muse knows a thing or two or maybe three about gloss. She’s tried her fair share of ‘em over the years and she even located one or two (or a million) that she loves but she’s never, ever, in all her year’s as a cosmetic junkie came across such a gloss as Lipstick Queen Sinner Shine Hardcore Gloss. Whoa. I’ve never seen a gloss this thick, this shiny, this glossy, this pigmented….sheesh…..tis like I’ve struck the lipgloss lottery! If you’ve been searching for that perfect gloss to give you Angelina lips or maybe you prefer the Dr. Frank N. Furter look this is the gloss for you!

I think we have all established by now the entire lip plumping craze really isn’t about the “sting” but more about the texture and formula of the gloss. Thicker glosses create fuller looking lips! Lipstick Queen Sinner Shine Gloss has an amazingly thick formula which glides onto lips leaving behind a glossy, shiny finish and adding a sexy plump to lips. My lips are at least double the size this morning but I promise it’s not a bad Amanda Lepore look! Although the formula is quite a good deal sticky and tacky I don’t mind in the least as it does hold the gloss in place for long periods of time without having to touch up every two seconds because it’s slipping off my mouth onto my chin. Put it on and it stays on for hours at a time. I used it last night prior to heading to the movies and it lasted through a trip to the theater, through a two hour film, through a large Dr. Pepper Slurpee, a pack of Twizzlers, and back home…..looking at myself in the mirror a few hours later and my gloss was still going strong. The color Wine Sinner is a deeper peach shade on me. The swatch on the site looks more like a wine shade but I honestly felt like it looked more like a peachy brown shade on my lips. The gloss comes in a nice heavy plastic jar which is quite large so it’s $22 USD price tag is well, well worth it. I was quite impressed with the size of the product as I was expecting a smaller size but this is huge. The gloss has a faint lemon flavor that’s reminds me of Philosophy’s Kiss Me Gloss.

I can’t begin to rave enough about the amazing formula. It’s pigmented enough to work perfectly well on it’s own plus it’s highly emollient and moisturizing. Chalk up Lipstick Queen Sinner Shine Hardcore Gloss as a total Muse Approved gloss for purchase! You needs it! My only minor rant is the fact it only comes in 7 shades! Can we has more shades please? Thank you!
