the Balm Cabana Boy Review

If you’re new around these parts you may have missed the drama surrounding the Balm Cabana Boy. Dude, oh my god, so difficult to find. Sephora had released info on it early this Summer but ever after that it was removed and no word about it was around. I later discovered it on a few websites but failed to order it. Finally Sephora slapped it back up and I recently hauled it…ok not so recent, ’bout a month ago. I was quite in love with the Balm Down Boy and of course when I laid eyes on Cabana Boy I got that singing in my blood that was screaming, “Must Have….Must Have…” I imagine you know the sound of that voice in your head that mimics that of a zombie demanding brains for dinner…yes well I get like that with makeup sometimes but it doesn’t come out “Brains………Brains…..” it comes out “Makeup….Makeup…..”

Fact of the matter is when the Balm releases powder blushes in any form I’m normally on line to purchase as they always turn into something very special. And of course the Balm Cabana Boy Blush is special.

Philosophy The Supernatural Moonlight Review

Hey lovies!

The Muse happened to be in Sephora a few days ago and had a peep at the new Philosophy makeup display.   Remember how they used to have the skincare against the wall and the shower gels kinda hanging out in a middle rack?  At least that’s how mine had it.  Anyway…..it’s still like that but now they have an entire display for the cosmetic line.  I thought this was rather exciting as I’m hopeful it means good things are coming our way from Philosophy.   They really seemed to pay special attention to their color cosmetic line this Fall so maybe they’ll consider releasing more items next season.

Anyway!

‘Nuff of my babblings. How about a Philosophy review to celebrate?

Ahhh the moonlight, isn’t it terribly romantic?   A touch on your face creates an instant highlight and a beautiful finish.  How can we bottle up the moonlight for our faces?

With Philosophy the Supernatural Moonlight!  Instant traces of a luminous glow for your cheeks and face all bottled up with a sponge applicator for easy application.

Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil Review and Swatches

With names like Chinatown Chase and Chinatown Thriller the Muse can’t help be tickled by the Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil.  Seriously, I’m a total grindhouse movie geek and the names just reminds me of some cheesy little flick that features chases through Chinatown in beat up Monte Carlo Chevrolets with hot chicks at the wheel and possibly bad dubbing.  Bad dubbing always makes grindhouse movies the awesome doesn’t it?

Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil 2

If hot chicks are involved in I’m betting they have juicy, glossy lips and who knows maybe they are reaching for Lipstick Queen Glossy Pencils to do the job up good.

Take the jump to watch this grindhouse movie unfold.
