Did you know Benefit Lemon Aid is a beauty gift from the gods above? Tis true, bestest stuff ever. However, it’ll set you back a pretty penny…but no worries the beauty gods understand all about recession proofing your beauty regime and sent a replacement along with the new mark Please Hold Eye Primer coming atcha this Summer.
Morning chickets…or wait it’s afternoon already isn’t it?
How was your weekend? Mine was pretty slow going for once, amen for slow weekends. I got a chance to see Alice in Wonderland on Friday and I’m still debating what I think of it, who seen? Whatcha think? Discuss!
The rest of the weekend went by in a rather quick blur especially yesterday when I proceeded to veg in front of the telly playing Bioshock 2 and Heavy Rain with my mate Martin. It was one of those lose track of time moments as we proceeded to fall into a gaming comatose. Can I tell you how pissy I am about Heavy Rain? Between choppy video and incredibly long load times we were both ready to toss Mountain Dew a the TV and hiss big boos! Seriously, I could have walked around the block and made a roast while waiting for the damn scenes to load. Not cool Sony, so not cool.
Anyway, I also got a chance to check Avon Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick. Dontcha just love how Avon tosses in all those major words? Mega! Rich! Ultra! It’s like an action movie. I know I get excited when my lipstick is mega, rich, full of impact, and ultra…yeah baby!
So New York was hit with a pile of snow last week and I can’t help but find myself shoppin’ Spring scents. I’m already making my list and checking it twice for light, fresh blends for the upcoming warmer weather. How about you guys? Which Spring blends are appealing to you?
I have my little eye on the new mark Citrus Bloom Fragrance Mist but I’m a little bit scared to try it after my last ordeal with a mark fragrance…but regardless I really love crisp citrus blends for the Spring ya know?
Oh the dilemma!
The Muse hearts herself some lip stain! It’s truly a staple product for me and I can’t really say a time I’m not staining prior to glossin’ up which is why I’m every so intrigued by the new mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain ($9).
A gloss and a stain, in one formula? Ok, count me in!
