Stila Pretty in Paris Palette Review and Swatches

Stila Pretty in Paris Palette 3

Ok, so, most of us agree that the new Stila Travel Palettes are all about the cuteness and the price but not necessarily the contents. I was a wee disappointed in the USA palette and honestly the upcoming Tokyo one is doing nothing for me either.

However, Stila Pretty in Paris….

You need it!

Philosophy Windows to the Soul Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches

Philosophy starts off Fall this year with a color cosmetic launch. As you know from my past Musings, I’m a fond fan of discussing Philosophy’s break through into the cosmetic world. I think it’s official they are here to stay as Nordstrom and even Sephora now have special little displays with Philosophy cosmetic offerings, a few years ago you’d have seen displays featuring skincare and shower gel but not color cosmetics. Pretty great if you’re a fan of the brand right?

The latest release are the new Philosophy Windows to the Soul Eye Shadow Palettes which come in three shade selections. It’s Philosophy’s solution to easy, 1, 2, 3-sy eyeshadow application.

Becca Mineral Powder Foundation Review

Becca Mineral Foundation 4

I’m so not a mineral makeup lover or user. I don’t care who tries to convince me but in my opinion minerals are for oily skin types or people with perfectly smooth skin. I also stay away from minerals due to Bismuth, a fairly common ingredient in mineral foundation that makes me itchy as hell. Feels like hundreds of tiny ants are crawling under my skin! Not fun!

Mind you, none of this sways me from trying to find the perfect mineral foundation. I’ll try just about anything mineral because deep down inside I have a hidden hope that someday, some where, my mineral wishes will come true.

Becca Mineral Powder Foundation made its way onto my beauty radar recently.

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Ignition Review and Swatches

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Ignition 1

I imagine that Milani HD Advanced Lip Color is the brand’s take on Dior Serum De Rouge Luminous Color Lip Treatment. Who doesn’t like a drugstore dupe right?

This is newly released and should be popping up at your local drugstore at the moment.

Is it worth the haul?
