I was feeling the need to Beauty Babble today as it’s been a while since we did one.
If you want to babble with me here’s how it works. To play the game you’ll basically be filling in a series of questions about what you’d do in certain situations where cosmetics would be needed.
Today’s babble is about makeup on the go!

Now….I did so give into the idea of a vibrating mascara last year but I can’t say whether or not I’ll go so far as to indulge in a vibrating…foundation?
Yes, you read that right.
Cashing in on the success of Oscillation Mascara, Lancome is now introducing Oscillation Foundation due out this Fall (October).
Lancome’s Oscillation Powerfoundation cushioned applicator delivers 7,000 micro-vibrations per a minute…..oo techy! This in turn breaks down the mineral foundation and seamlessly buffs the product into skin. Lancome lays claim this will give an airbrushed finish and a record breaking 14 hours of wear. It also has the added benefits of acting like a Clarisonic Brush by supposedly diminishing the appearance of lines and pores after one week and refining skin texture after four weeks.
Me? I didn’t like the Clarisonic Brush all that much so I’m unsure at this point how I feel about applying mineral foundation with a vibrating sponge…..
But you can try to convince me this will be a good thing.
What’s your word on the new Lancome’s Oscillation Powerfoundation?
The Muse missed the boat on the Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick. I dunno I was kinda on the fence about a stick concealer so I didn’t bother indulging. I guess stick foundations kinda remind me of those old school lipstick style concealers with the hard texture and awful formula that makes blending into the art of scrubbing really hard. Applying concealer should not involve scrubbing to the point you’re yelling “out, out damn spot!”. You so know what I mean right? Lord knows they even still sell these lethal concealer lipstick thingys at your local drugstore. In my humblest they should be outlawed.
Yes, so that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
However, Clarins Concealer Stick popped around for a visit today and I immediately raced to my mirror to try it out. I should have been feeling skeptical about it like most stick foundation but in my excitement I completely forget my unforgiving nature in regards to stick concealers.
Thank god I did as it’s special.
Jump for it.
