Musings of the Day: Happy Fall Ya’ll!

Halloween Musings of a Muse

I got rather excited this morning when I saw new Bath and Body Works Halloween Pocketbacs popping up on blogs! OMG! I really LOVE Halloween. Some people love Christmas but my Christmas is Halloween! It’s my absolute FAVORITE holiday and I look forward to celebrating it every year.

After seeing those new Pocketbacs I realized we are mid month now and within two weeks or so some of our favorite shops will start stocking Halloween goodies.

What sort of Halloween beauty goodies do you haul during the holiday?

What are you looking forward to shop?

Here’s a list of things I’m looking forward too!

MAC Me Over! Collection for Fall 2011

MAC Me Over Collection Fall 2011

Oh MAC me over, I’m all I wanna be, a walking study in demonology HEYYYYYYY! \m/ rock on!

MAC Fall 2011 starts with the new MAC Me Over! Collection that was inspired by the November MAC Me Over! contest which was a search far and wide for the essence of what makes MAC people beautiful. An online contest ensued that asked fans to submit a photo or video finishing the following statement, “MAC Me Over! because….”

Six individuals truly stood out and were selected to fly out New York City and experience a superstar level photo shoot and collaborative makeover with industry luminaries such as world-renowned photographer Michael Thompson, A-list stylist Paul Cavaco, hair guru Serge Normant, makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen, and of course, our very own Creative Director of M·A·C Cosmetics Worldwide, James Gager, who oversaw the project from its inception and hand-selected the winners.

In the end MAC teaches us yet again that makeup is all about YOU whoever you are. Boy, girl, black white, old, young, man, woman…!

MAC Me Over! embodies the spirit of all makeup lovers with three different Fall looks and new limited edition shades including old favorites.

Let’s take a look!

Dr. Jart BB Cream

Today we have a very special giveaway courtesy of Dr. Jart.

I’ll be giving way a bundle of two of Dr. Jart’s brand new BB Creams that recently launched at Sephora.

You don’t have to choose, you get both of these!

The set includes:

Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 PA+++ $39
A moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum, this all-in-one product also includes advanced brightening properties. Ideal under makeup, its natural looking coverage minimizes the appearance of imperfections and evens the skin tone. Antioxidant bio-peptides and adenosine protect skin from harsh environmental factors while restoring firmness and elasticity.

This one step balm perfects skin while protecting it from the sun.

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25 PA++ $32
A moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum, this all-in-one product also hides imperfections. Made with 50 percent water, Dr. Jart’s Advanced Water Bead Technology helps hydrate and maintain healthy moisture for a dewy, fresh look. Like a drink for your skin, once applied, tiny droplets of water appear before being quickly absorbed, generating an instant soothing and cooling effect.

If you’ve never tried a BB Cream or you’re not sure what one is I’d suggest reading my “What is a BB Cream? post.
