Musings of the Day: Sooooooooooo Overrated!

My Musings of the Day was brought on suddenly after watching a video from FloridaSweety on youTube.

Please tell me you subscribe to her videos? No? Check it below and you’ll totally understand my obsession.


Is she hysterical or what? I absolutely adore how she starts out on one topic and starts flying off the handle from topic to topic. Absolutely adored when she stops mid sentence because her cell phone starts to ring and she goes off on a tangent about how she won’t pick it up.

Lord…youTube is the best.

Anyway.

The moral of the story is FloridaSweety was saying how overrated MAC is and I was wondering what brand or brands do you think are terribly overrated?

Click below for my answer!


Ok, I probably have a few answers for this. Let’s see. I think NYX is big time overrated. They have alot of great stuff but the raves about how comparable they are to MAC…ummm overrated! One such example would be everyone comparing NYX shadows to MAC ummm again no I don’t think. Very nice shadows but not as good as MAC in my humblest.

It’s Monday so my brain is slow today and I’m only coming up with the one brand…so throw some my way!

Which brand or brands are completely overrated?

Musings of the Day: Those Bloody Duos!


Omg! The MAC Grand Duo Collection was created to tempt and tease a Muse! I’ve already blown through much of my Spring budget and I’m so, so tempted by this collection!

Jump ahead to find out if I’m hauling!

MAC Grand Duos combine two of my favorite items from MAC, an MSF and a Mineralized Blush. Well Hello gorgeous want to come home with me tonight?

I so want all of ‘em! I’m tempted beyond belief but I’m also feeling the love for many of the other upcoming MAC Collections that will pop up shortly, can you say Sugar Sweet?

So I’m in high debate whether to haul these or just wait?! Oh the pain of having to make choices such as this. Le sigh!

What about you?

Hauling?

Hells no!

Musings of the Day: MAC Site


I think this is a rather awesome Musing of the day so tell me whatcha think!

Do you love or leave the new MAC site?

Tell me all about and click below for my take!

Ok, so I’ve been thinking about this really, really hard (without busting a blood vessel I promise) and I remember how much I liked and enjoyed playing around with the MAC site when it was first updated. I mean it’s kinda ingenious being able to search by color and having the color options in every single available product etc….

But…well…the novelty wore off and I really, really, really, really miss the old design. For example, if I’m logging on just to have a quick look at a new collection it’s so difficult to navigate because the collection pages go by so quickly…or maybe I’m not clicking fast enough?

On top of that the black background drowns out the actual photos of the products. Plus one click brings another sliding frame and after that another frame appears…and I begin to feel like a n00b on the Internetz for the first time. What the hell?

I dunno it’s just too many bells and whistles and I just loved the simplicity of the old site.

Please MAC bring it back?

What do you think?

Absolutely adore the new site?

Want the old site back?

Want a new site but a little more organized and a little less fanfare?

How would you improve it?

Product Musings: MAC Eyeshadow Firespot



The Muse thinks we should all sign a petition and ask MAC to freaking bring back Firespot! Too many makeup junkies have not experienced the beauty and joys of Firespot, blasphemy!

The Muse has an orange eyeshadow here and there. She also owns a few peaches, a few bronzes, and a coral or two, and other wonderful shades that fall into the “orange” category. But she’s never quite run across such a stunning, pigmented shade of pure orange flame like MAC Firespot.


Upon it’s release with the MAC Moonbathe Collection it sold out uber quickly. I was lucky to get one at the time as I was a week to late hauling Moonbathe as I recall it.


It’s possibly the most prettiest shade I’ve come across and quite reminds me of a flame of a fire. It’s extremely pigmented and works amazingly well with golds to create a gorgeous Summery eye look!

Loves it!

Can we please has it back now MAC?

How about you?

Have it?

Love it?
