Guerlain Fall Collection 2009: Guerlain Slavic Beauty Collection


As always Guerlain releases an elegant and very pretty selection for Fall 2009 entitled Slavic Beauty.

Jump ahead for some Musings about this collection!

I’m quite eager to see Guerlain Holiday 2009 as it’s always my favorite collection of the year but I can feel the excitement in the air for Guerlain Fall 2009. Guerlain Slavic Beauty is a selection of rich plums, browns, and purples which make up a very pretty palette for Autumn. As always Guerlain keeps things fresh with the release of Guerlain Russian Doll Blush which is a sheer pink liquid blush in a elegant tall purple bottle. Also releasing are two Guerlain Russian Beauty Eye Shadow Palettes one of which is made up of rich browns and the other purples and pinks (I have my eye on both). Another brand new take is a Guerlain Eye and Lip Palette which I haven’t seen from Guerlain before this. It includes two colors and two eye colors.


Truly a gorgeous selection for Fall from Guerlain and on my hit list to haul this season!

Cosmedix Mystic Hydrating Treatment Review


This Summer I discovered that I like misting myself to death rather than suffer through wearing a facial moisturizer. I’m utterly obsessed with misting toners that offer moisture of any kind. Jane Iredale has my attention as does Jurlique and not most recently Cosmedix Mystic Hydrating Treatment!

Click for a review!

Cosmedix Mystic Hydrating Treatment is an oily free, moisturizing mist for all skin types. Oily skin types can totally appreciate this best as it offers moisture yet doesn’t clog pores or make skin oilier than it already is. Those with dry skin will be thrilled to use it in place of their normal moisturizer in the Summer and dry skin types will appreciated how it allows skin to remain dewy and fresh while allowing it to breath and break away from heavy lotions, potions, and creams.

Mystic Hydrating Treatment pretty much takes the place of normal moisturizer which is a welcome relief as having to apply base, spf, a moisturizer, foundation, and the dozen other creams that come with makeup application is ridiculous. A quick mist of this gives me just the right amount of moisture while leaving my skin soft without making it oily. Although I’m doubtful I can use this as my regular moisturizer in the Winter it comes in mighty handy right now.


Compared to other toners and mists I thought this particular one offers the most moisture, after all it is advertised as just that, a moisturizer. Not a toner, not a mist, but a moisturizer, in a bottle, in liquid form. Coolness!

Of course you can use it to set mineral makeup as well as for me it just leaves my skin beautifully prepped for makeup. Perfect Summer treat for skin! Loves it!

Muse Approved for purchase.

Oily skin? Skip the moisturizer and head straight for this! You’ll thank me! Dry? Snag some of this to use as your Summer moisturizer!

Seriously, it’s worthy of a try.

What are some mists you love using in the Summer?

Any take the place of your regular moisturizer?
