Happy New Year from the Muse!

NYE Muse

Thank you for being a part of Musings this past year! I hope you’ll be part of her future as well.

I remember when Musings had a hand full of readers and several years later I still feel like I’m talking to myself when I type up blog posts but you comment, you tweet, you communicate with me daily, and I realize I’m not talking to myself at all…I’m talking to a great big bunch of friends who happen to be as crazy about makeup as I am.

If it was a great year for you, may it continue to be a good one through 2011 and if it was a bad one, may you have a fresh start and a better horizon ahead.

Enjoy your journey into 2011! May it be safe, healthy, and happy!

I’ll see you all really soon for what I hope will be another fine year of babblings and Musings from me to you.

Happy New Year friends!

At first glance the MAC & Micky Contractor Collection does so deceive. I was thinking, “eh, probably nothing here to see…”

However, there is a gem or two in the rough even if you think the collection might not be suited to your skin tone. The shadows are all wearable in my opinion and one are two are really keepers, the fluidlines will easily be a must have if you’re a fan since the colors are stunning gem shades, and believe it or not the concealers in the lighter ranges might work well if you prefer a more lighter concealer (I always go lighter with my concealer).

Obviously MAC is gearing the collection towards a specific skin type so not everyone will be able to take advantage of some of the base options in this collection however the color products are definitely a go particularly if you like nudes (the lipstick shades are all very nude-ish and beige) or bolder shades (the shadows are all extra bold).

Let’s have a look at some swatches.

the Muse’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways

giveaways 2010

Hey there!

Apologies for the lack of posts today. I admit that I was busy procrastinating a majority of my day away playing W0W and proceeding to head out to a movie, dinner, and semi-annual sale hunting with friends soon after. I normally have a backlog of posts but didn’t get a chance to edit, crop photos, and schedule them. In other words, I got lazy and let the addiction of W0W set in, give a sister a break, I haven’t played in two months, in geek time that’s two years.

I’m making up for it now though by inviting you to enter the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways on Musings!

As I said in each post, these giveaways would close after the Holiday season was over. Officially I consider that Monday so please go ahead and enter if you haven’t done so already as there are still 11 Giveaways open, links below!

Good Luck!
