in+the+muse%27s+purse

Although the Muse wasn’t the biggest supporter or fan of the MAC Hello Kitty Collection she does so admit that one of thee best items released with the collection were the awesome shades of MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner released with the color story!

Her fav of the two shades released? Jump ahead to find out!

Since I purchased MAC Tinted Lip Condition in Popster it hasn’t seen the outside of my purse. I carry it everywhere! It’s the perfect combo of pink, peach, and coral. Such a warm lovely shade that brightens up any of my looks and is perfect for on the go touch ups!

Product Musings: Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Peace and Graffiti

urban+decay

Dontcha just love when you find that perfect combo that just goes well together without any major thinking on your part? I’m not so great pairing up colors but when I got my hands on Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Peace and Graffiti a few years ago, I knew I had a match made in heaven on my hands!

Urban+Decay+Deluxe+Eyeshadow+7

I’ve never met such a great pair of shadows that went so well together. Contrasting Peace’s cool blue teal with Graffiti beautiful bright green is a gorgeous cocktail of color.

Let’s not forget how pigmented, easy to blend, and silky smooth Urban Decay Deluxe Shadows are as well! I’m not much for a satin finish but these are divine!

Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner Duo

Smashbox+Waterproof+Shadow+Liner+Duo

Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner Duo available in four shades for $25 USD is the newest duo available from Smashbox.

I really like these. I enjoy Smashbox potted liner anyway and the idea of having a matching shadow to go along with a liner is rather a cool concept. I’m loving the slick compact as well with the added mirror, nice touch! Although I don’t favor a smoky eye in the Spring/Summer I wouldn’t mind grabbing one or two of these for the Fall!

Available now from Nordstrom

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo Review

If by some chance you’re looking to wash that man right out of your hair and everything else with it, that would mean it’s about time you tried out Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo.

Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+4

Hello, my name is the Muse and my hair has been silicon free for years now.

Ahhh the joy of living life with silicon free hair. It’s like having a good hair day every single day! Lush Shampoo and Conditioners are silicon free which means that hair is not weighted down with tons of yucky additives. Additives which give you bad hair days, frizzy hair, flat hair, oily hair and just general hair woe. Although on occasion my hair does crave a little silicon I try to use silicon based products in moderation.

The moral of my story is if your hair is not feeling it’s cleanest and you’re wanting to detox, I’m highly suggesting you grab yourself a big bottle of Lush Antiphilitron and call it a day. You’ll be happy you did!

What is it?

Think of Antiphilitron as a bottle of detox for your locks. It rinses your hair clean of oil, buildup, silicons, and more! What it leaves behind is pure joy! Your hair will feel lighter with a single use, more manageable with less frizz (if you suffer from frizz that is). If you have oily hair you’ll be all the more excited as this works amazingly well on oily scalps to create pure hair bliss! The formula is lemon based which makes hair shiny as well!

Now my hair is a bit on the dry side so I use this once or twice a week to detox my tresses. I use Lush King of Mods and although it doesn’t build up in my hair it does leave my hair feeling a bit oily plus during the week I’ll occasionally reach for my Skindazzles custom conditioner which is loaded with silicons. To rinse all this out I simply use Antiphilitron once or twice a week for a glowing head of hair! Loves it!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo wasn’t available for a really long time as it was discontinued but it was brought back recently with Retro Lush! Who knows how long it’ll last but I sure hope they keep it around for a while as it’s simply awesome!

Who might love it?

  • Anyone with oily hair!
  • Those who want squeaky clean hair.
  • Anyone who’s hair is loaded down with build up from product use such as gel, hairspray, silicon shampoo, and conditioner.
  • Anyone who wants picture perfect hair everyday single day!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo is simply amazing stuff and comes with my highest Muse Approval for purchase! I heart this stuff in a big way! Pick it up! It’s a must have!

Oooo! Ahhh! Awww! Whoa! Yay! Sounds good to me.

They will be releasing the standard goodies like eyeshadow palettes, makeup bags, brushes, etc….but what really caught my interested was the MAC Look Book which will include mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, etc…in a little box! Cool! Likey!

I can’t wait to see MAC Graphic Garden for myself!
