More News On The Balm Cabana Boy

Alright, I admit I’m a little obssessed with Cabana Boy. Sue me. My last update I was biatchin’ about the fact that the Balm refused to take my phone calls or return ‘em. They obviously caught on that I’m stalkin’ their site and Sephora’s for any word on Cabana Boy.

Anyway.

That brings me to the fact that I got a little carried away and started googlin’ Cabana Boy in my spare time. It’s rather sad when you’re googling and trying to locate something and all the links that pop up for said searched item are pointing to your own website. Sigh.

After a little hard work, FINALLY (after weeding through my own numerous posts that popped up on google), I located someone selling Cabana Boy. Chocolate Lotus, whom I’ve never heard of, has the Balm Cabana Boy in stock! Bless be.

Not so blessed be.

They are on vacation and not shipping until July 13?

I swear I must have seriously pissed off the gods somehow because something is preventing me from buying this bloody powder.

I’ll keep you in the know as news progresses as the saga of Cabana Boy continues, that is if you aren’t already bored hearing about it 100 times already. I won’t rest until I have it in my greedy hands!

No Cabana Boy Yet but Here’s the Balm Mary Lou Manizer

Well, the Muse was unsuccessful contacting the Balm today. They just aren’t picking up the phone or they are screening their phone calls and see “the Muse” on their caller id and refusing to say hai!

the Balm Time Balm Concealer Review

You know the Muse, she’s terribly addicted to concealers. I got many requests asking me to please review the Balm Time Balm Concealer for a while plus I got many recommendations from lovely readers who told me how great it was.

I decided it was about time that I try it out for myself to see if all the excitement that surrounds this particular concealer was living up with the Muse’s expectations.

It’s good. It’s not great and it’s not my holy grail concealer of choice but it’s not bad. the Balm Time Balm Concealer comes housed in a rather tiny little clear jar that’s about the size of what you’d get a pigment sample in. Although the packaging is tiny it houses plenty of concealer that should last well over a year. Also included is a tiny, circle sponge that blends the concealer in place.

Few fun facts about the concealer….

It’s not a moisturizing concealer in any way, shape, or form. If you’re older this is probably not one of the first concealers you’ll want to be reaching for simply because it takes a tiny bit of work to get it in place and blended in thus being older you aren’t going to want to do all that rubbing around the eye area so much (or even if you’re younger for that matter). The product is pigmented enough to hide up plenty of woes such as dark circles, puffy eyes, and fine lines. Although the concealer is more of “harder” texture than what I’d prefer it does cover up amazingly well.

I think the key to getting it blended correctly is using the small sponge it comes with. I twirl my finger in the top and dab a few spots under my eyes and proceed to pat on with the sponge. It seems to give a nice airbrushed look by applying this way but I do have to be careful with prepping correctly otherwise it creases and cakes terribly.

Coverage is good and the concealer performs pretty well all day without a touch up in between. I think if you prefer, for lack of a better word, a more dense concealer this would be something to consider. The texture is not creamy nor can it be compared to Benefit Boi-ing’s formula which also has a slightly “hard-like” texture. The feel of the product holds it’s own in the concealer department.

Overall, it a good concealer but I have doubts I’d repurchase if I ran out as I prefer a more moisturizing concealer. This would be a great one for those who prefer this style of texture in their concealers. Personally, at my age, I’m all about moisturizing concealers. This was nice and quite good but not on my to buy again list.

Anyone love it?

Tell the Muse!
