When I think of electrolytes I automatically think of brightly colored sports drinks a la Gatorade. I imagine if you took a big bottle of Gatorade with you when you go spelunking it could lead the way into those dark nooks and crannies.
When I go spelunking I tote along Chanel Brilliant Lip Shine in Pop and Laser, they glow in the dark you see.

I have a little obsession with Agent Provocateur that we won’t get into right now but might I share the news, as seen by this Muse on Twitter, that a possible Agent Provocateur Cosmetics Collection is in the works?

How awesome is it when Oprah does her Favorite Things episode? I swear I love seeing all those chicks in the audience going buck freaking wild when she says she’s giving them a tin of popcorn or a moisturizer, I mean you get the same reaction with the popcorn as you do when she says she’s giving away a free car. It’s screaming and tears and sobbing and OMGZZZZZZZ all over the damn place, hells some people fall down and convulse in excitement. Popcorn, car, whatever it’s Oprah and those women are all about Oprah and the swag!
Today, I was reading Bargain Swaps for Oprah’s Favorites on Total Beauty and I was wondering HOW many of those favorite things match up with my own?
Jump ahead to take a little quiz to see how many of Oprah’s favs are some of yours!
L’Oreal USA will close all U.S. operations of Shu Uemura Cosmetics shortly. L’oreal reports that the brand had bad results during the recession which of course could be the main reason it’s closing it’s doors to US consumers. However, I’ve always felt like the brand wasn’t as well known in the US as it is in Asia or put out there. Finding a Shu counter is a tad difficult sometimes isn’t it? On top of that the company keeps it’s Asian roots which isn’t a bad thing as far as this Muse is concerned but it’s not as marketed to the western side of the market.
According to L’Oreal USA, the move was made to focus on growing larger brands in their current portfolio and even though Shu does incredibly well within Asia, the market worth isn’t particularly high within the US.
Shu Uemura will continue to leave it’s doors open online but how long that is remains to be seen.
Fare well Shu, you’ll be missed.
