DiorShow Extase Mascara Review

I’m so busy having my love/hate affair with DiorShow Extaste Mascara for the past month or so.  We love each other, we hate each other, we want to fight, we want to make up…it’s been a whirlwind kinda relationship for the two of us.

DiorShow Extase Mascara Dior 3

DiorShow Extase Mascara is the newest mascara to grace the Dior family. With the promise of a ton of technology to make lashes look all high impact and incredible in a single stroke of course the Muse was excited. Promise me high-impact anything and I’ll be your best friend forever and ever.

The mascara is supposed to create a 3D volume effect while expanding lashes in size by up to 50% after application. See? See? It gets better and better right. Sounds like exactly what my lashes needed.

WANTS IT: Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Lip & Eye Palette

Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Lip Eye Palette

You know it wouldn’t be too long before the Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Lip & Eye Palette ($60) hit my beauty radar. I’ve been to busy to hit up Neiman’s to grab it but I did order it online last week.

This palette includes four sunny, juicy lip shades plus six neutral eye shadows that work perfectly with bright lips.

Eye shades include:
Ivory Eye Shadow, Bermuda Pink Metallic Eye Shadow, Seashell Metallic Eye Shadow, Bonfire Metallic Eye Shadow, Tan Eye Shadow, Burnt Sugar Metallic Eye Shadow

Lip shades include:
Cabo Coral Lip Color, Salmon Lip Color, Shell Lip Color, and Coral Reef Metallic Lip Color

It looks stunning for Spring and can be used well into Summer me thinks! Yes, it shall be mind because I’m a tad obsessed with the Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Collection at the moment.

Wants it!

Whatcha think?

Clarins Everlasting Foundation Review and Swatches

Not so long ago, in the near distant past, the Muse was every so delighted when she heard about Clarins Everlasting Foundation. This brand new foundation is dubbed “everlasting” for a reason as it promises 15 hours of staying powder. For the Muse finding a foundation that doesn’t oxidize and lasts on her face for 15 hours is equivalent to discovering the holy grail and owning the Hope Diamond. I mean imagine it…you put your foundation on in the morning and it lasts and lasts and lasts. Never again will your foundation slip away, melt off, or just disappear. Yes, indeed this sounds like what I need in my makeup life.
