bareMinerals Read Eyeshadow 2.0 010

Word on the street is the Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 Palette are quite the hit. And really why wouldn’t they be? I have my little stash of loose mineral shadows from BE but let’s face it they are the fall out demons from hell. I hate having to clean up fall out because hello, how impossible. I’ve tried tape tricks, powder under the eye trick, etc…etc…even eyeshadow shields which are sometimes a gift from the beauty tool Gods in these situations but fall out, such a pain.

Bare Minerals makes some might fine shadows but having them pressed up into a compact, well, that’s the best thing I’ve experienced in the beauty world since the introduction of Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Let’s take a peek and find out what’s so fab about ‘em!

L’Oreal Project Runway Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

LOreal Project Runway Blush 005

I’ll be the first one to admit I spend alot of my drugstore makeup life with my nose up in the air. I used to be very snotty about what kind of brands I purchased but as Musings grew so did I and I now embrace alot more drugstore makeup however it doesn’t mean that I don’t nitpick most of it apart and find flaw in almost all of it. Sometimes, you do get what you pay for.

On the upside….sometimes you score such a great deal you wanna share it with the world. I happen to be blessed enough to have the ability to share it with a few thousand people a day here on my site when I really like something. The same people who share my love of makeup. I can’t tell you how fun that is.

My recent great deal?

The new L’Oreal Project Runway Blushes. Wow, these are awesome.

Pixi Beauty Blush 001

I do need a little beauty therapy and a helping hand when it comes to blush because yes, I admit, I am heavy handed. Clown cheeks! Freak out!

Freaking klownz are all kinds of scary. I dunno who thought that it was a good idea to slap a wig on someone, paint their face white, and give them a big red nose, it’s just such a freak-fest. Remember Killer Klowns from Outer Space? That shiz gave me all kinds of nightmares in my youth and up until today if I’m honest.

If you haven’t seen it, rent it, seriously it’s such a scary cheese-fest.

The Klowns are sadistic aliens who invade Earth and pitch their circus tent ship in a sleepy American Town and proceed to chase people down with their cotton candy ray guns. Inside the ship they keep the bodies wrapped in cotton candy cocoons. It sounds ridiculous but dude, it’s scary as hell!

I got off topic didn’t I?

Pixi Beauty Blush a simple solution to avoiding clown cheeks!

Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash Review, Swatches, Photos

Urban Decay 24 7 Shadow Pencil Stash 001

Urban Decay’s Friends and Family Event is on baby! This is the time you can take advantage of hauling all you can at 20% Off. If you don’t already own the Naked Palette you’re a stinker, go get it, NOW!

I feel like I’m pretty locked up tight on the Urban Decay front so I’m not taking advantage of the sale. Yes, I admit, there is such a thing as too much Urban Decay. Thankfully I’m pretty stocked up on everything from the brand now I’m just sitting around patiently waiting for Spring 2012 to release. I’m positive Urban Decay Spring 2012 will probably be something stupid awesome, another Book of Shadows maybe?! With ALL new shades and no Midnight Cowboy? Yes, yes, please make it happen!

For those who are hauling at the sale might I suggest grabbing yourself the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash?

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Review

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant 001

Oh it is so brisk outside this morning. Did ya hear we had a little snow over the weekend? Listen 8 inches of snow in October is absurd in New York just so you know.

Crazy.

Who pissed off Mother Nature?

As I brace for the weather to get even colder I’m starting to rotate my lotions and potions. My gel moisturizers that I love for Summer wearin’ are heading to the back of my stash and I’m starting to haul out the big guns like Badger Balm Evolving Body Care Massage Oil because my dry skin needs all the help it can possibly get.

I also got a tube of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant in the mail several weeks ago so I yanked it out to see if it needed to become apart of the “Muse’s Surivial Kit for Cold Winter Weather and the Defense Against the Undead”. No one wants dry skin while fighting off the undead dontcha know!
