Lorac Box Office Sensation Face Charts and How To Looks

Thank the makeup Gods! Lorac has some great face charts and how to’s for the Lorac Box Office Sensation Traincase. I’m so happy to see this as the one thing I didn’t like about the palette was the fact they didn’t include some “how to” looks! If you have the palette, these should be a very welcome tool for creating some great looks using it.

If you missed my review please see it by clicking here and proceeding to take the jump to see some the looks created by Carol Shaw, makeup artist to the stars and creator of the Lorac line.

Some of the looks, well all of the looks, are truly stunning so I’m pretty excited to have instructions for recreating them plus ideas how to use my Lorac Box Office Sensation!

MAC Pink 4 Friday MAC and Nicki Minaj Collaboration

MAC Pink 4 Friday, a collaborated lipstick shade between Nicki Minaj (who?!) and MAC will be available for purchase starting November 26th online only at www.maccosmetics.com and will be offered each following Friday (December 3rd, 10th, and 17th) in the month of December.

Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian hip-hop diva according to MAC. According to me? I haven’t a clue who she is. Eep! Have I lost touch with pop culture? I’ve honestly never heard of her but than again my taste in music runs to the extremes.

Nicki’s shade, is a creamy pink satin formula, kinda looks dup-ish to the recently released Lady Gaga Pink that MAC created for Viva Glam.

Honestly her shade does seem a tad hard to pull off for many in my humblest, I thought the same about Gaga’s shade but if you’re a nude pink kinda girl this should appeal.

It does appear super limited edition so it could appeal to hardcore MAC collectors.

What do you think of it?

An Open Letter To Bath and Body Works: Ahem…Where’s Lambie?

Dear Bath and Body Works,

I appreciate the Sweetest, Softest Collection. It’s cuddly and warm and oh so delightful for gift giving but….

Where’s Lambie?

I buy a Lambie Blanket, Lambie Slippers, and Lambie Accessories every year but this year there isn’t any Lambie. Do you have plans to release it maybe on Black Friday?

If not, this could prove worst than the year without Santa Clause.

So please….

Bring back Lambie.

k, thanks!

Happy Holidays!
the Muse

Well, as you know by now Lambie hasn’t popped up in store or online. Wonder what Bath and Body Works is up to. I gotta say if it hasn’t made its appearance yet I doubt it’ll make appearance anytime soon as we are pretty much into the Holiday Season at this point in time and we are all shopping or even, if we’re organized, done shopping.

What are the chances we’ll see Lambie this year?

Oh well at least we have some lovely offerings from the Sweetest, Softest Collection to pacify us but it isn’t Lambie…sniff.

Any fellow Lambie fans out there?

Share it!

Yay or Nay: Oprah Winfrey Hope in a Jar

It’s really rather sweet that Philosophy is honoring 25 years of Oprah by slapping her face on a jar of Hope in a Jar.

For a limited time you can purchase the limited edition jar for $38 to $105 depending on which size you want.

Oprah’s damn lucky because the woman hasn’t changed much since that photo was taken and her skin and face are still looking pretty damn youthful.

So what do you think of Oprah Winfrey’s Philosophy Hope in a Jar?

I gotta say nay simply because Oprah looks ALL kinds of pissed off to be on that jar. It looks like someone stole her lollipop and proceeded to snap a picture of her soon after.

New picture Philosophy. One of little girl Oprah grinning happily.

Available now from www.philosophy.com

Disclaimer: Oprah was not harmed in the making of this post. It’s just for fun!
