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.
As you know already Urban Decay hit the scene early with their Holiday Collection. They are probably one of the first brands that have their Holiday stock up and available for retail on their site. Pretty exciting and impressive considering it seems like December is ages away but in reality it’s never to early to get shopping done early now is it?
I’ve already introduced you to all of the offerings from Urban Decay Holiday 2009 and today I’ll be bringing you some swatches and a review of one of their newest palettes for the season entitled Show Pony Shadow Box. It’s fierce peeps, you so needs one.
Take a look after the jump!
So you’re not so hot in the eyeliner department eh? It’s ok, have no fear, the Muse here to save the day.
I’m not a fabulous eye liner queen me self in all honesty. Liquid I’m rubbish with, gel I’m ok with, and pencil I’m decent with. Lining my eyes isn’t my strongest point and I normal over do it unless my eye look is simple since I always look overly made up with say aqua eye shadow on and a black liner…..am I the only one that suffers so?
My discovery for simple lining? Laura Geller Baby Cakes Baked Eyeliner Palette!
Check it after the jump!
Towards the end of August the Muse introduced you to the Philosophy Supernatural Color Collection which features a line of cosmetics free from parabens, mineral oils, fragrance, and other harmful ingredients. The products promise not clog pores or irritate skin while offering a super natural finish. These are particularly great for those who prefer a more natural, softer makeup look.
Today I’ll be introducing you to the Philosophy Lit From Within Cream Blush and later in the week I will tell you about a few other pieces in the collection.
Take the jump for the review.
The bloody Balm gets me every time with their uber cute glam packaging and interesting little cosmetic releases that make it seem like the world will end if I don’t haul it.
Such is the case with their new highlighting powder entitled Mary-Lou Manizer. I’ve no idea what the name is about I guess it’s a cross between man and luminizer? I’m not really sure but hey whatever floats your boat the Balm, I’ll go along with anything you say if you keep pumping out these cute packages of makeup goodness.
Jump ahead for the deets.
