Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick Review & Swatches

Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick 1

My Lips But Better or commonly referred to as MLBB in the beauty community is a term coined for a shade of lipstick or gloss that’s comparable to that of your natural lip color only enhanced. A shade that gives your pout that perfect natural color that looks like your real lip color only way better.

MLBB shades are a rarity in my opinion. They aren’t something you run across daily and you may have to go through dozens of lipsticks and glosses to run across a single shade of MLBB. I’ve tried plenty of shades of lipstick and tons of gloss and can only give the coveted MLBB title to a very, very few shades in my stash.

If anyone deserves the title of the perfect shade of MLBB it would have to go to Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick. I recently told you the tale of Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipgloss, now let me tell you one about the lipstick.

NYX Sensual Mood Gloss Review & Swatches

NYX Sensual Mood Gloss 1

Hey Guys!

So sorry for the lack of communication lately. I have a lot of comments to get through and feels like ages since we last talked. How are you doing? I’ve been swamped. Life, both personal and professional, has been getting in the way of Musings. I hope to be back on track next week when things slow down a bit for me.

I’ll be rolling out the new look for Musings shortly too. Apologies to IE users who have had issues with my site and seeing new posts. A refresh typically takes you to new posts or try clearing your cache (this is a temporary fix until I figure out what is going on here).

What else is going on with you?

See any good movies lately? Read any good books?

Am I imagining things or have you noticed a decline in the Walking Dead’s zombie makeup? Did the budget cut hit…!? Also please, can it be off the farm time now? I’m so bored of the farm. Old McDonald had a farm and wished it was over run by zombies not humans having too many emotional moments and playing house during a plague! P.S. What’s all this about not seeing bites and scratches on zombies? Is it be airborne time now? Wink! Do gimme the good word on your Walking Dead theories, with only a few episodes left I’m waiting for the big BANG to hit.

Anyone try out the new NYX Mood Glosses?

I likey…these are kinda a cool little budget gloss available in four different formulas.

Take a look at the Sensual version, perfect gothy shade to wear for stabbing (not shooting, we need to reserve bullets) zombies in the head.

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Shade 3 Swatches

Clinique Age Dense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Shade 3 Swatches 3

BB Cream has finally stepped into the spotlight here in the US. In Korea, where BB Cream first became popular, girls and women use this product after their skincare in place of sunscreen and foundation to perfect, protect, and create flawless skin.

Now that BB Cream has reached the US, we’ve adapted our own uses for the BB Cream that’s used in a variety of ways from priming, protecting, to using in place of foundation and controlling oil. BB Cream is a hybrid product that acts as skincare, makeup, and sun protection all in one.

Although BB Cream formulas and the some of ideas of the product has changed slightly to make it more marketable here in the US for the most part the concept remains the same, flawless skin achieved using a single product for easily achieving flawless skin.

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream is probably my favorite so far from the releases here in the US. What originally started out as a light and medium shade selection has now been extended to include another shade selection.

Take a look!
