Would You Buy It? La Mer The Hydrating Facial Mask

La Mer The Hydrating Facial Mask 22

La Mer The Hydrating Facial Mask saturates the skin with hydrating ferments to  reveal youthful skin.  Dryness and dehydration are treated quickly and easily.  The saturated mask is made of spun-lace cotton and contains a solution to treat skin to a spa-like experience.

Sounds incredible right?

The kicker is it costs $250.  Eep!

I’d probably indulge if I had an endless flow of cash but I honestly couldn’t afford to dish out for it right now even if I wanted to.  $250 for a mask is way above my budget.

Would you buy the La Mer The Hydrating Facial Mask?

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!

Wants it!
