German import, Essence Cosmetics, debuted at Ulta last Spring with beauty goodies that had sweet budget prices of .99-$2.99 much to the joy of our wallets.

Boscia brings the first black nose strips to the US with their new Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips.
Nose strips aren’t a common pick up in the prestigious cosmetic world and are most commonly associated with Biore here in the US however charcoal strips or black strips are very common in the Asian market. Various brands produce nose strips including Shiseido in Asia.
We are sorely lacking…
But thanks to Boscia we now have a new way to attack those pesky blackheads!
I’m not knocking beauty budget because this morning I pulled out some of my N.Y.C. New York Color Cosmetics Extreme Color Lipglider Lipgloss and proceeded to squeal.
Damn that stuff is good…and under $5 bucks each!
N.Y.C. New York Color Cosmetics Summer 2011 is packed full of fabulous beauty budget goodies that won’t have you breaking into your vacation fund to indulge!
As you know from my prior post has a brand new Pivoine Flora Makeup Collection that released for Spring 2011. The collection is inspired by the graceful peony which dances like a ballerina in the Mediterranean breeze. The collection features a stunning color collection of luminous springtime hues with a formula that’s enriched with softening peony extract (in some cases the makeup even has the delightful aroma of the peony flower)!
I have a full review of the new L’Occitane Pivoine Flora Petals Eye Quartet that will be pop later today but I wanted to do a quick post with a look I used to create it!
This is a super easy Spring look for day use that can be achieved with a few simple steps.
The evolution of youTube beauty has brought about quite a few videos that feature stashes and hauls galore. What is this odd fascination we have with looking at other people’s stashes (does that sound perverted?)…..I know I can literally sit for hours, with my mouth hanging open, and my eyes unblinking as I watch a stranger on youTube that gives me the grand tour of her beauty collection.
Hours of entertainment right there people.
So….I want you to send me your stash pictures (or videos) and I’ll feature them here on Musings of a Muse so we can sit down with a bucket of popcorn and look through them.
Small, big, huge, crazy scary….send it on over!
Can’t wait to see!
Mail them to musingsofamuse at gmail dot com
I’ll be stalking my inbox for them.
Of course, it wouldn’t be fun without swag! Anyone who takes time out to send photos will get a token (aka swaggalicious beauty goodies) of my appreciation via mail if I feature it on Musings.
