cosmetics

You ever have those very favorite products that seem so amazing, so great, so incredible that you feel like you couldn’t possibly live without them? Indeed, the Muse knows that feeling well!

Jump ahead for a few Beauty Items that I can’t live without.

Shills BB 6 in 1 BB Cream (review coming sometime soon) is something I can’t possibly live without. It’s one of thee best BB creams I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing! So much so that I’ve forsaken most every other BB Cream in my collection for it. This is love people.

Speaking of BB Creams no question that Etude House Magic Cream and InnisFree Trouble Care BB Cream are two of my other favs in the BB Cream world!


Benefit Coralista omg! I can’t think of three letters that explain how great Coralista is other than O M G. This pigmented peachy powder is my very favorite blush of all time.


On the topic of Benefit let’s not forget the awesomeness that is Thrrrob and my staple product, Benefit Lemon Aid.


I find that lately I can’t live without the very beautiful Ella Dean’s Beautiful Twist Lip Balm in Winter’s Cherry Snow Slushie Kisses. Who doesn’t like slushies? Especially cherry ones! Yum!


Although it’s sticky and tacky and ooey and gooey I probably couldn’t live without Lipstick Queen Shine Gloss. It gives my lips such incredible slippery shine plus it makes them look twice the size! Loves it!


The day NARS Super Orgasm entered my life I think the angel’s sung! What an incredible blush. Needs no commentary from me about it’s awesomeness.


I can’t live without Urban Decay Primer Potion and I don’t want to think about it not being in my life. ’nuff said.


Bobbi Brown Blush in Apricot entered into my collection quite by chance when I happened upon it at my local CCO. Ever after it’s been my staple blush and favorite shade!


Oh Bobbi your name is on my lips today! Let’s not forget how I went from feeling unsure about the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer palette and quickly having it become a staple product for me. I NEED this in my life.


Shu you know how to treat my lashes right. The cadillac of lash curlers would be my trust Shu Uemura Lash Curler, we be best buds.


Although it’s meant for aging skin I absolutely love Lancome Absolue Makeup. Flawless perfection comes to mind after use!


Speaking of perfection that would also come in my jar of Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer, nope can’t live without, can’t go for that!


Another beautiful foundation that graces my daily cosmetic regime would be Lavshuca Creamy Liquid Foundation, we loves each other for about a year now with no end in sight!


It’s Summer again so the Muse is hauling out Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in Glided Gold. Indeed, this product single handedly changed my mind about bronzers!


Life isn’t worth living without Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy in my life, golden perfection.


Mally Concealer System, worth it’s weight in gold peeps.



Majorca Majolica Mascara
probably couldn’t live without that and not willing to try either!

This limited edition palette contains Twice Baked, Half Baked, Baked, and Flipside in a super-slim palette for glamming up your look on the go and get you a bit baked if you so please. If you’re feeling like sinning too while you’re getting baked Urban Decay was nice enough to include some of the new Urban Decay Potion Primer in Sin to get you started. And complete it all with a Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon…it simply gets better and better…booze, sin, and getting baked? Lord, we are so COVERED for Summer! Loves ya UD!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+5

Possibly my favorite piece in the collection I like that they included all the baked shadows and a stunning ocean green to go along with it. It’s sort of a vampy, funky Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand palette for the hipper girl. Loves it!

Tis the Summer so we need some waterproof mascara now don’t we? Check out Urban Decay Big Fatty Waterproof addition to get you through those long days at the beach and in the pool. Won’t smear, won’t fade, won’t crack, stays where you put it until you want to take it off. Good bye raccoon eyes and hello Summer lashes!

And finally one new shade in the Urban Decay Big Fatty Colored Mascara. Welcome Flipside to the collection! Perfect for pairing up with your new Urban Decay Get Baked Eye Kit! Yums!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+4

All in all I’d say Urban Decay has a nice Summer Collection coming at us! The collection is live on Sephora and is also available now from www.urbandecay.com

Beauty Battle: Urban Decay Eyeshadow VS Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow

Pitting sister shadow against sister shadow is truly wicked! But the Muse can’t think up a better battle than facing off Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow against Urban Decay Eyeshadow!

urban+decay+223

Let the battle begin!

I’ve always been a big fan of just about anything UD has put out, particularly it’s awesome line of incredible eyeshadows. Hello likey! As I was thinking up this week’s Beauty Battle I couldn’t help but think what a great fight it would be putting up two of Urban Decay’s greatest shadows and facing them off against each other!

Urban+Decay+Shadow+5

Urban+Decay+Shadow+1


It’s going to be a close one kids so sit tight.

It deserves to be mentioned that both shadows have incredible pigmentation and a formula that blends like a dream. They are both really high end, quality shadows and some of my favorite shadows around.

urban+decay

Weighting in at 0.05 oz with a price tag of $16 USD and over 25 shades to choose from, Urban Decay Eye Shadow sure does please. Matte shadows, sparkly finishes, and plenty of shimmer are all available from this line of shadow! It’s size, it’s price, and it’s incredible variety keeps Urban Decay Shadow on top of this game but what does Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow offer us?

Urban+Decay+Shadow+6

Urban+Decay+Shadow+4

urban+decay+22

Merely $2 cheaper with a $18 USD price tag and a size of 0.09 oz these shadows creep up on us as a possible better value. The graffiti style package definitely trumps the old hubcap style of Urban Decay Eye Shadows as well. Getting a 3rd more product for $2 cheaper plus cute packaging could make these a winner but a mere 12 color selection could be it’s downfall!

Urban+Decay+Shadow+2

Urban+Decay+Shadow+3


This is a tough one to call but I do so deem the original Urban Decay Eye Shadow the winner. Although it’s bigger size and great packaging really appeals, I must deem Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow the loser for it’s lack of color selection. The colors they do offer are amazing so I’d love it if they expanded on the line and introduced new shades!

Our Winner?

Urban Decay Eye Shadow all the way baby!

Urban+Decay+Shadow+66

How about you?

Which wins in your book?

UD Shadow or UD Deluxe?

Beauty Muse: Take Urban Decay Primer Potion and Make It Better

udpp
Wanna muse improvements for Urban Decay Primer Potion with me?

How can you possibly take something as awesome and incredible as Urban Decay Primer Potion and make it better? Not possible!

Picture+013

But yes, I’m sure we are all in agreement we can def do a better job of UDPP. Not so long ago I almost lost a finger or two trying to cut open my bottle of Urban Decay Primer Potion. Can’t recall? Jump for the details!

I was quite pleased with the amount of UDPP that was stuck up in the neck of the bottle after splitting mine open. Oh how sad is it we all toss our bottles out and inside is tons and tons of primer still stuck in the the bottle. Sigh! After I hacked into my bottle I transferred all that beautiful primer to a small sample jar but turns out, for some odd reason, the primer isn’t nearly as good once it’s out of the bottle. The texture becomes a bit dry and actually loses it’s ability to hold shadow in place as once the open air hits it and it lays in the jar a while it just suffers through some sort of transformation. Or at least that happened to me.

So how in the world can we make UDPP better?

New packaging that’s how! I wouldn’t love a tube like Too Faced Shadow Insurance but I’d love a straight line bottle with the same sponge applicator so I can get all the goodness out without having the struggle with the sexy curved bottle the primer currently sports!

How about you?

Go on! The Muse knows you’d love a new style packaging for our old favorite!

Tell me how you’d make it better!
