Here’s some popular keywords that brought readers to Musings last week. Check ‘em out.
Since LA Ink premiered the buzz around the Internet has brought many searches in for Kat Von D Concealer and how Kat Von D looks without her tats. The brand new Kat Von D Perfume has also caused a stir in my search box!
For some reason or another the Too Faced Smurfette Collection has generated quite a fair bit of incoming traffic lately. Everyone is searching up the smurfs…could it be we might see another smurfy collection soon or maybe it’s just about ready to hit the clearance bin!
Folks are obviously feeling the heat and humidity because searches for warm weather friendly makeup are abound like MAC Just a Pinch Blush, Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation, and Lush Tea Tree Water Toner.
Milani Runway Eyes Wet and Dry Eye Shadow in Beach has been named my fav a few times here at Musings and obviously it’s a fav this Summer as the searches are pouring in trying to find swatches for this great Summer shade!
The searches are also pouring in for Fall Makeup Collections 2009, Winter Collections 2009, and of course Holiday 2009. Obviously this heat doesn’t sway anyone from yearning for Fall and Holiday looks!
And that’s the top searches bringing people into Musings this week!

Golly anyone else an emotional wreck when it comes to applying liquid liner? I’m fairly decent with gel or pencil liner but put a liquid one in my hands and I begin to shake in fear.
For those of you who aren’t as emotional with liquid liners you’ll be happy to hear all about the new Too Faced Metal Eyed Liquid Eyeliner!
Click it to see what it’s all about after the jump!
Not unlike Too Faced Glitter Eye Liners these new liners have a sparkling, shimmery finish to line lids with however the formula is that of a liquid liner. Line eyes with long-lasting, non-smudging liner that comes in eight shimmering shades. The quick drying formula makes application a snap even for liquid liner amateurs like me!
The thin brush lines eyes precisely for a clean, professional look. The gentle formula has great color payoff with a rich pigment and a beautiful shimmery finish.

Last year I fell in love with the Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette and this year isn’t any different with the introduction of the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette, incredible, truly a fabulous palette and a killer deal!
Jump ahead for some raving!
I’ve been known to hate all over a natural, nude eye look but my tastes have evolved since I started this little site and with those changes came the revelation that I do enjoy a natural eye look. With a total of nine shades, three tutorials, and a brush, all packaged together, Too Faced Natural Eye Palette arms you with just about everything you’ll need to create three natural, nude looks or any number of looks using the nine shades. This style palette is ideal for anyone who either loves neutrals or isn’t so handy with eye shadow application. It’s ease of use and nifty little tutorial cards make it’s a snap to create a flawless eye look sans drama.
The palette is a sweet flip top box with full size mirror and pull out draw with one dual applicator that includes a sponge on one side and a liner brush on the other. As per my rant last year I will say that I hate they don’t include at least three sponges with the kit as it would be great to use one brush per shadow look. The kit also includes a sleeve which houses three little business card size tutorials with three simple steps for creating a Day, Fashion, and Classic Eye look. The instructions are simple and easy to understand and for the most part one sentence tells you what to do. Believe me if I can follow the instructions you’ll be able to without any problem. The instructions make it very easy to create dramatic neutral looks that are beautifully flattering for Fall.
The shades in the palette are as follows:
Heaven (Matte Cream)
Velvet Revolvor (Matte Nude)
Sexpresso (Matte Brown
To create the Day Look you simply sweet Heaven all over the line and blend Velvet Revolver into the crease to contrast. Finish the look by blending Sexpresso on the upper and lower lash line for a smudged out liner effect. The results of the completed look are a work friendly subtle neutral eye look.
Nude Beach (Shimmering Beige Peach)
Honey Pot (Coppery Bronze)
Cocoa Puff (Shimmering Golden Brown)
When compared to Day, Fashion Look is considerably more dramatic. To create the look you’ll be using nude Beach as a high brow highlighter and blended into the crease. Follow up with Honey Pot patted on the inner lid and around the tear duct and complete with Cocoa Puff blended on the out lid, crease, and upper and lower lash lines. Although completely work friendly, Fashion Look manages to have the drama of a night time look as well!
Silk Teddy (Nude Shimmering Peach)
Push-Up (Light Shimmering Brown)
Erotica (Grayish Brown with Golden Sparkle)
The Classic Look is probably the most dramatic of all the looks with a blend of bronze and brown to create a very smoky, nude look. To achieve the look you’ll blend Silky Teddy from crease to brow and gently press Push Up onto the lid. Follow up by smudging Erotica on crease and lower lashes.
All three looks are very pretty and flattering on my brown eyes. It’s fun following the card step by step but nothing is stopping you from using the shades individually or combined to create any number of looks. Nine shadows is alot of color so I’m sure you can let your imagination run wild to create some other interesting looks. All the shadows in the palette are brilliantly pigmented and rich in texture. Finishes range from shimmery, matte, to velvet and blend like a dream.
Overall, the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette is an absolute steal at $34 and a Fall must have for creating natural or dramatic eye popping looks. I really love this one and I’m deeply impressed. Quite a great little palette for not only makeup amateurs and beginners but also those who are well versed in makeup application.

Oh I fancy myself some gold shimmer. Gold is such a good color for me and so flattering. Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight is part of the Too Faced Fall Collection 2009 and one of my favorite items released. A pretty little compact filled with powder candlelight is just what ever girl needs in their life.
Jump ahead for the review!
Housed in a cream and gold compact this finely milled, sheer golden powder has a hint of shimmer to deliver a lit from within finish to skin. The powder is ideal for sweeping on cheekbones and face for a subtle little kiss of gold. It works a treat on bare moisturized skin to illuminate skin with a natural finish. The powder easily multitasks as a great way to brighten up eyes or the brow bones too. It’s also packed with a dose of skin-saving antioxidants to help protect and sooth tired skin as it warms and illuminates your complexion.
I’m all about gold so this has much of my attention. It’s a rather universally flattering shade that works well right now in the Summer, will remain looking fabulous as the Fall and cooler weather approaches, and will be ideal for the holidays when I want a brush of gold across my face.
Truly a great little palette for illuminating and brightening up my complexion for a soft, romantic glow.
