the Muse’s 5 Fav Indie Shops

Do you shop Indie?

Indie shops are a celebration in creativity. Most of them are owned by a single person who basically puts their heart into creating either makeup, bath and body products, or skincare just for the joy of doing so, this would be the thing that makes Indie shops so very special. But let’s not forget in many cases Indie products are extremely unique and inexpensive!

Here’s Five of my Fav Indie Shops.

Bath & Body Works Liplicious Crazy for Candy Corn Lipgloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Bath Body Works Liplicious Crazy for Candy Corn Lipgloss 001

Ahh Candy Corn.

The irony of candy corn is I love the way it smells, I love the way it looks, I even purchase bags of it during Halloween to keep on my desk in a jar at my office….but I technically don’t like it. Nasty azz candy. Yuk!

But hey, love the idea of it….!

Victoria’s Secret Hypnotic Beauty Perfect Lipstick Exotica Review, Swatches, Photos

Victoria’s Secret Hypnotic Beauty Perfect Lipstick Exotica 004

The Victoria’s Secret Hypnotic Beauty Collection launched this week so I ran right quick over to my local store to pick it up. I basically hauled it all.

Could not resist.

Some of the pieces are real gems but I haven’t tested it out yet so, of course, I have to fiddle a bit more before deciding if I should tell you guys to get it.

One item that surprised me was the Victoria’s Secret Hypnotic Beauty Perfect Lipstick in Exotica. The promo image does nothing for this shade as it looks pink in that image.

Take a look, you’ll probably love it as much as I do if you love MAC Pink Grapefruit.
