Long Wearing Concealer: Maybelline Super Stay Concealer Review

When you’re a beauty junkie you’re almost always guaranteed to run across one or many products that promise you the world. Flawless skin, perfect skin, enhanced, HD ready skin, smooth finishes, moisturizing formulas, and one of my personal favs, long wearing formulas.

I can always refresh my lipstick and lipgloss. It doesn’t bother me in the least to re-apply. Granted I’d love something that didn’t only wear long but also wore all day but it’s not irritating doing a re-ap of my lip products.

My eyeshadow is virtually bullet proof thanks to Urban Decay Primer Potion so really I don’t need to bother myself with it at all.

Mmm blush normally sticks around well enough however like lipstick or gloss I’d love for it to stay all day but again I’m not bothered in the least.

My pet peeves?

Concealer and foundation. If I can find myself a concealer and a foundation that wears ALL day without moving, migrating, fading, or oxidizing I’d be a happy Muse indeed.

The Muse’s Mail Bag: Bihada Ichizoku Cheek Blush Review and Swatches

mail bag

Peeping into the mail bag today I got a few requests and questions on the Bihada Ichizoku items I’ve been reviewing.

Kelly from Washington writes,

Dear Muse,

I really like your reviews on Bihada Ichizoku. My friend was telling me that cosmetics are also available with this range but I only see you reviewing the skincare. Is it true? Are there cosmetics?

If you heard about this can you do a review of these items too?

Thanks!
Kelly
