Steal It: on10 Lip Balms

I think the on10 Collection available at Sephora is simply darling so I’m a little upset at how drastically they cut their prices as this could be the beginning of the end. I sure hope I’m wrong.

The good news is you can grab some serious steals and deals at the moment from the line. The Muse is all about stocking up on some of these cute little tins of balm especially at these prices………

Virtually the entire catalog of on10 Lip Balm singles has been cut from the original price tag of $10 USD and is now down to $6.30 USD. I do think they were worth the original price but I kinda sorta feel like $6 bucks is a fairer deal for a tin of balm, maybe I’m cheaping it a bit here but I love the idea of $6 bucks when compared to $10!

I think the best part of on10 is the ridiculous variety. They have SOOOOOO many quirky little flavors and if you’re a big fan of balms this is sure to tickle your fancy. Plus I failed to mention the adorable vintage style design! Loves it!

At $6.30 USD the Muse says go Steal It! She’s going to!

bareMinerals Pure Platinum

Last year Nordstrom offered the bareMinerals Pure Platinum Gift Set for the Holidays and the Muse was pretty delighted with the kit.


It’s long since been gone though and I’m sure that those who didn’t indulge may still be yearning for it.

Have no fear the Muse can show you how to get your very own bareMinerals Pure Platinum!

Get the deets how after the jump!

QVC has gotten the bareMinerals Pure Platinum Kit in stock for $59 USD (same price as last year w00t score!)!

Type in item number A81855 to snag yours!

The kit includes:

  • Bare Escentuals Blush in Posh Blush
  • Bare Escentuals Gossamer Body Powder in Platinum
  • Bare Escentuals Glimmer Eyeshadow in Silvery Hue
  • Bare Escentuals Eyeshadow in Periwinkle
  • Bare Escentuals Natural Lip Color in Ripe Fig
  • Bare Escentuals Double-Ended Mascara with Classic Black Mascara and Platinum Luminous Lashes
  • Bare Escentuals Flawss Face Brush
  • Bare Escentuals Tapered Shadow BrushBare Escentuals Crease Defining Brush

The kit is well worth picking up since it’s one of the older kits which includes full sizes of virtually almost everything in it where as nowadays Bare Escentuals has decreased the size of products drastically in new set releases. It also includes quite a variety of items where as, again, BE has chosen to scale down not only the size of products in it’s newer kits but also the quantity of items.

This is a rare gem well worth picking up especially if you missed it last year!

Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit

With the evolution of technology someone, somewhere in the cosmetic world decided that now was the time to introduce a slew of HD inspired products. With that brand new HD TV you got for Christmas you may just want to indulge in some HD makeup to go along with it to hide flaws, wrinkles, spots, and any other woes that your face may possess. After all HD displays and shows EVERYTHING thus we can’t likely get away with our simple makeup application anymore, we have to step it up a notch and bring our application process into the realms of high-def.

HD

Yeah well you either laughed really hard at my LOL l33t speak or you just didn’t get it……

Considering everyone and their mum has jumped on board with this idea it’s really caused a rather nice craze and hype. Truth of the matter is do we honestly need HD makeup? The Muse likes to think we don’t. She’s not against looking flawless but when is it likely she’ll appear on telly? I guess we can chalk up HD as being one of those extra mile stones that we all want to pass to enter into the flawless skin nirvana we all seem to crave.

I wouldn’t trust my HD makeup to anyone so when I seen the Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit I knew that indeed it was time to actually cross paths with HD makeup and take the plunge!

So you may be a bit weary when you finally figure out that Morgen Schick actually offers her cosmetics through HSN. I know, I know. The idea of no name products off of HSN may scare you. Honestly, I’ve found some amazing products on Home Shopping and I’m not embarrassed to admit that. Although Morgen is far from being a no name she still is for many an unknown. I personally think her products are some of the most awesome I’ve come across and the flawless finish you see to my skin in about 85% percent of my photos is thanks to her Hide and Highlight Palette.

Anyway about this HD thing I was talking about.

I recently ordered the Morgen Schick Hi Def Perfection Kit from HSN for $39.50 USD and of course I’ll bring a review of it to you as soon as it arrives in my mail box. I’m quite excited about the kit as Morgen has a special knack for creating products that just do a world of wonder for making dull skin light up and glow. The hype of the HD bug never did bite me but as soon as I seen this kit I knew it was about time to jump into the world of HD makeup!

Morgen+Schick+Hi+Def+Perfection+Kit

For now I’ll leave you with the video showing application and general information about the kit.


Expect the Muse’s review very soon!

What’s your take on HD cosmetics?

Gimmick?

Love the idea?

WANT: Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash

If the promo image is anything to go by, Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash may be something to look forward to and could be added to the old wishy list!

Make+Up+For+Ever+2

Mysterious, dark, gorgeous lashes await you with Make Up For Ever brand new mascara, Smoky Lash.

Well..maybe all that doesn’t await me…I haven’t tried it yet so I’m not the authority on anything mysterious, dark, or gorgeous however have no fear I’ll be adding it to the review list shortly as I am intrigued by this one.

The mascara offers the standard fair of adding curl, volume, and length to lashes however it also has a deeply pigmented formula which was designed to create a volumized look to lashes. Be still my beating heart! It sounds almost to good to be true!

Make+Up+For+Ever

I am slightly weary of the brush applicator as it looks a tad bit messy considering the formula appears extra thick and gooey but aside from that it does look pretty good and the promo model is really selling the Muse on it.

I must have it!

WANT!

How about you?

What do you think?

Wants it?

Not so much?

Tell the Muse!

MAC Summer Collection 2009

MAC Summer Collection 2009 going to the Bees?

According to my favorite beauty girls at Kiss and Makeup, part of MAC Summer 2009 will be a line up of honey scented body products including some sort of moisturizer.


Here’s to hoping it’s as good as Honey I Washed the Kids!

What do you think?

If it’s as good as MAC Volcanic Ash you can count this Muse on board!
