Clinique Almost Lipstick Lip Swatches Luscious Honey, Tender Honey, Flirty Honey, Lovely Honey

I’m not really a great photographer and I stink at lip swatch photos in particularly…plus close up shots of my lips kinda freaks me out.

So I did a few Clinique Almost Lipstick Lip Swatches but in full photos. I know they probably won’t be a ton of help but I wanted to share how incredibly natural these look on lips. There one of my biggest picks for Spring 2012. I’m really loving ‘em!

Take a peek!

Butter London Spring 2012 Summer 2012 Collection

Hey nail girls!

Here’s a little look at the Butter London Spring 2012 and Summer 2012 Collection.

I had a blast with some of the names. If you’re a reader of Musings from the beginning you probably remember Peter, my British x-boyfriend’s father. One of my Internet alias for gaming, forums, etc is fan_girl and Peter used to like to call me fanny girl. Needless to say if you’re British it wasn’t the best nickname in the world. Haha!

Let me know if anything catches your eye!

Make Up For Ever HD Complexion Starter Kit Make Up For Ever Unretouched Campaign

Make Up For Ever is relaunching its UnReTouched Campaign for the New Year. If you remember last year Make Up For Ever launched this campaign with several models wearing various Make Up For Ever foundation products and color cosmetics. The difference between those promo images and ones you see from other brands or in glossy magazines was the fact they remained untouched. Make Up For Ever delivered you the raw images without retouching or perfecting the photos using Photoshop.

This year, Make Up For Ever takes the idea of giving you the “real deal” even further with a casting call to find a model for their new Unretouched Ad Campaign. That model could be you! Visit www.hd.makeupforeverusa.com and submit a photo for consideration. All finalists will be posted on Facebook and the winner will be flown to NYC for a professional photo shoot in February.

Make Up For Ever has also launched a brand new interactive shade finder tool to help women find their perfect shade of foundation online. Many folks are a bit wary of buying foundation online for the first time because they are worried about the shade being completely wrong for them. This new tool aids you in selecting your shade! Try it out at www.hd.makeupforeverusa.com/shadefinder.

The Make Up For Ever HD Complexion Starter Kit recently launched as well which is a value set containing four products for $79.

You get:

  • Make Up For Ever Microfinish Powder
  • Make Up For Ever HD Kabuki Brush
  • Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer
  • Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation (Your Choice of Shades)

Get your HD Complexion Starter Kit exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com

What do you think of unretouched ad campaigns?

Can you think of a beauty world with less than perfect ads?

Would you feel more inclined to purchase makeup?

Does it kill the illusion for you?

Is the honest, “hey, this is how you’ll REALLY look” if you buy our product more of what you’d like to see?

Is the Clarisonic Worth Purchasing It? Becky Worley Seems To Think So!

I’m dating myself here but who remembers when Becky Worley was on Fresh Gear? Those were the days, those were the days…!

I came across her on the Today Showing doing a test of the Clarisonic and I had to share it.

When I originally purchased my first Clarisonic I was vastly disappointed but after diligently using it I realize I probably can’t live without it. I dunno what it might be doing for keeping my skin youthful but it really does give my skin a super deep clean. I particularly like Becky’s testing with fluorescent makeup in her review!

Was your Clarisonic worth the purchase?

Did you feel like it was a good $100+ purchase?

Disappointed in yours?

Feel like it changed your life?

Do share!
