Beauty Babble: Weathering Makeup

beauty+babble

Wanna Beauty Babble with me? During our last babble we were hit with survival beauty and all the essentials we’d need in dire situations.

How To Play:
The Beauty Babble section basically is a scenario of “possibilities” with questions and answers about what you’d do in situations where cosmetics would be needed!

Today’s babble is about various weather conditions and makeup items or skincare you’d need in such situations!

Jump ahead to read my babblings and submit your own if you’re wanting to play!

You head to work on Monday expecting it to be like any other day of the week when your boss pulls you aside with some incredible news. He relates to you that he wants to send you to London for the entire Summer to work at the UK branch. You’re so excited you can’t believe your good luck! As soon as you leave his office you dial up your best friend who lives in England to share the details. Your best friend informs you that it would be a terrible time to come to London right now because the predicted weather for the next three months is gloomy, cloudy weather and rain! You’re kinda feel badly after you hear this especially since you’re having perfect Summer weather right at home. You keep your chin up and decided you’ll need a few makeup essentials to bring Summer with you to cold, dreary London. What will they be (choose five)?

I’d choose a fun Summer scent, a great bronzer, a pretty shade of blush, a shimmery, Summery palette for my eyes, and a good primer to keep my makeup from falling off my face in the rain!

My picks:

Fragrance: Harajuku Lovers G
Warm, coconut will help me think Summer during those rainy days!

Bronzer:
Urban Decay Baked Bronze in Glided
As if you haven’t heard enough how much I love this bronzer! Shimmery cheeks with hint of gold and peach will bring a little sun to my cloudy day in London!

Blush:
MAC Eversun Blush
My ideal blush this Summer and plenty peachy to bring a little color into my world on dreary days!

Eyeshadow Palette:
Kate Von D Gypsy Eyeshadow Palette
A slew of Summery greens to spring up my look in the rain!

Primer:
Korres Face Primer
Love this stuff! Keeps my makeup so fresh! Hopefully it’ll help keep it waterproof too!

Your best friend asks you to dinner on Friday night and explains she has amazing news to tell you! You meet up with her and as you’re ordering dinner she springs on you she’s getting married to an Arabian Sheikh. With your mouth hanging open you gasp in shock! After getting over your shock you gush how excited you are for her. After the waiter leaves with your order you proceed to ask her for all the details. She explains that the wedding will take place in the Sahara Desert. Trying not to gasp in shock you begin plotting skincare items you’re going to need to keep your face properly moist. Pick three items to keep your skin in order!

My picks:

Lush Ocean Salt
Most people don’t use Ocean Salt on their face because they feel it’s too harsh but I happen to love it! It’s ideal for those crazy desert days when my skin begins to flake up!

Mandom Perfect Assist 24 Double Moist Cream
This will keep my skin moist and dewy while the sun is beating down on my head!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun Block
Gotta have high SPF for those sunny days in the desert! 85+ on this one! w00t!

Ok! Now it’s your turn. The desert and dreary, cold rain for three months! Babble it peeps and tell me what you’d need to survive these nasty weather conditions.

Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer: Conceals Ink or Not?

The Muse has reviewed Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer and although she liked it she wasn’t so sure about it hiding ink. I’m not denying this concealer is hells all pigmented but if I had any ink I’m doubtful it would do anything to conceal it.

DSCN1372%5B2%5D 1

However, Sephora put it up to the ultimate test and concealed Kat’s OWN tattoos using the concealer.

Jump ahead for a peep!

Ok, so interesting results here. Check it:


That’s pretty incredible but a little, tiny bit hard to believe it was just the concealer they used plus whoa how much did they have to use? And what’s that strange reddish mark? She doesn’t have that in the picture where her tats are in place but after they use the concealer she looks bruised? It doesn’t look like it’s ink that was being concealed either because in her before photo she doesn’t have tats in that general area? And her neck is all red? I’m such a nit picker aren’t I? Just curious what happened.

I dunno!

What do you think?

Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Gypsy

Kat+Von+D+Eyeshadow+Palette

As I type this I am holding in my hand thee must have palette of the Season, the Muse dubs it so, thus it must be so (was that even a sentence?). I’m talking about the brand new Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Gypsy!

The Muse has never been so emotional over a palette in her life. Kat Von D continues to impress me more and more lately so much so I find the need to go to Sephora and add all her eyeshadows into my cart and just look at them and sigh…I never click submit but I dream about doing it.

Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Gypsy whoa. I couldn’t pass up snagging this gorgeous palette for 15% off recently and boy am I ever glad I did because it’s stupid gorgeous. I’m so enthralled at the moment that I just want to pet it and whisper sweet nothings in it’s ear so it may be a while before I actually swatch it…it’s just too pretty!

The Muse promises a review soon but please for the love of god don’t wait! Run to Sephora and get one now. As for me I’m going to light some candles and make sweet love to it tonight….or not….we’ll see what happens….wink!
