Egyptians believed that the dead would need their organs in the afterlife so they stored some of them in canopic jars. Don’t ask me why but my morbid little brain instantly compared the new Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment to one of those canopic jars only difference is Josie isn’t storing a stomach or an intestine in this little jar, she’s storing a lip treatment that’s rather delicious and awesome.
And those of us who adore Epyptian history may find the joy in the little jar it comes stored in, gross organ parts aside of course.
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 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.
Wanna see ‘em?
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.
In the beauty world, seasons start fairly early. We are full into Fall at the moment and by the end of the month discussions on Holiday 2010 will begin.
But, even though it’s ending soon, Summer is very much in the here and now. Avon Summer 2010 has recently launched on their website and they are about the virtues of lighter makeup and keeping cool and fresh during the warm weather.
Speaking of lighter makeup remember the Avon Smooth Minerals Lip Tint I showed you a few weeks ago? Wanna take a closer look at ‘em?
