Guess Who’s Back? MAC Volcanic Ash

MAC Style Black 1

Today the Muse is hoping and praying for you.   As of September 24th MAC releases Style Black and the Muse is every so hopeful you’re hauling it.  No, no not the color cosmetics…..no worries this Muse understands not everyone can pull off black lipstick.

She’s talking about the re-release of MAC Volcanic Ash.

Oh joy!  Bless Be!   The gods have answered my prayers.  MAC Volcanic Ash is repromoted for a limited time…yes it’s only a limited time so best get a case of it.

I should hope you’ve tried this incredible face scrub.  Last year I did a review and a huge rave on MAC Volcanic Ash.    I’m delighted that it’s returning and equally pleased they changed the packaging.  Originally Volcanic Ash came housed in a plastic jar which was a big old mess.   This year they released it in a squeeze bottle which is absolutely ideal and way more hygienic.   See?  The MAC Gods listen to our rants and improve on their failures.

On top of the release of MAC Volcanic Ash you’ll get the added bonus of Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask.  I was so smitten with the latter I didn’t get a chance to try the mask on the last release so I’m every so happy to get my chance to haul it.  Anyone try the mask?  Tell me the deets.

Please tell me you’re as overjoyed as I am at the promise of Volcanic Ash’s re-release.

If you never tried it you absolutely must!  It’s incredible.

Backstage with Sally Hansen at Tracy Reese and All Lacquered Up

As you know the Muse doesn’t cover much in the way of  nails over here but she was quite excited to see her good mate Michelle from All Lacquered Up featured in the Backstage with Sally Hansen video.  The video features nail trends during Fashion Week 2009 and has a great recap of the show with interviews from Tracy Reese, Gabrielle Union, Michelle from All Lacquered Up.  Michelle is looking lovely and all in the know with the trends she spotted this season, you’d think by now the Muse would have picked up a thing or two about good nails from her….oye, I need to work on these poor nails.

You can read more about the backstage show and the trendy nails at the show by visiting www.alllacqueredup.com

Philosophy Hope Springs Eternal Facial Mist 11

Philosophy Hope Springs Eternal Facial Mist is hydrating miss that replenishes skin’s natural moisture level with a fresh, invigorating scent. This is formulated with 250 minerals that topically feed skin nutrients for a healthy glow.

The Muse wants to feel the glow. It’s $20 for a 5oz size which is cheaper than Shu’s Facial Mist so I’m on it plus I like the promise of an invigorating scent…wonder what that’s all about?

Yes, you shall be mine Philosophy Hope Springs Eternal Facial Mist!

Dr. Jart All Out Black Head Review

Last night the Muse got home extra late and decided to do battle with the one or two stubborn blackheads on her nose.  It’s never a good idea to go into full on war with blackheads when you’re tired but she must have been terribly exhausted to attempt it.

As you may know from reading my past posts I’ve been full on at war with these blackheads for a while and my quest has lead me on many adventures to rid myself of them from the downright weird to the incredibly good way of winning this epic battle.

My search recently led me to Dr. Jart All Out Black Head as it gets rave reviews in Korea. Asia understands the drama of blackheads so of course I was ever trusting that Dr. Jart was going to rid me of evil blackheads.
