Granted it’s not like she minds in the least to have hair comparable to Einstien but she’s come to the conclusion that old Albert could work this look where as the Muse on the other hand can not.
In my quest for all things cheap lately (you know we haz to be cheap with the economy and such) I discovered Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules aka weird little capsules that look like the latest street drug.
Although a majority of the time nothing touches my hair outside of Lush haircare and a few select e-tailer brand shampoos and conditioners I decided to shrug off my snotty little nature and try out Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules. Honestly, anything that promises to tame the frizz is always a welcome addition to my haircare regime. My hair is long, it’s wavy, it’s curly, and without proper care it does look quite like I stuck my hand into the nearest socket.
Surprisingly these little capsules do exactly what they promise which is tame the evil frizz. The price is one of the key selling points as for $2.99 USD it’s quite a nice steal. You’ll get 18 capsules which you’ll either use one or two of or more if you’re really having a frizzy kinda day. I used one and my hair was nice and soft afterward, frizz-free, shiny, and didn’t feel weighted down. My main concern when using new haircare is how it’ll weight my hair down. My hair is currently silicon free thanks to Lush so I take extra care when using anything else as once I reintroduce silicons or other additives into my hair it starts to misbehave. I was pleasantly surprised that merely one capsule which contains 3, 4 drops of serum at the most banished my frizzes and made my hair nice and soft.
If you’re looking for something cheap that won’t weight your hair down and will zap your frizzes I highly suggest checking this out. Not a bad deal on the price plus it delivers on the promise of frizz-free hair! I’m on the bandwagon for a re-purchase once I run out!

Looking to be as glam as that foxy little minx Dame Edna? I mean seriously who doesn’t simply adore her crash lilac hair and sparkling dresses!
Get cheeky with the MAC Dame Edna Collection after the jump!
I must admit that the MAC Dame Edna Collection definitely holds way more of my interest and attention than the MAC Hello Kitty Collection. I’m simply in love with the lilac packaging! Although the trio color selections aren’t exactly what I’d have liked to see (too similar to shades released already) I can’t deny they are quite Dame Edna themed to say the least. I’m particularly thrilled with the lippies and glosses in this color story as they look quite lovely. The beauty powders as well have caught my eye although I have heard stories that they are chalky but I’m not minding in the least and if worst comes to worst I can always pop them up and replace with my own pressed powder so I can enjoy the lovely lilac packaging!
All in all I see myself hauling a majority if not all of this collection! I really like the looks of it!
How about you?

MAC Dame Edna debuts from MAC in January.
It’s that time of the year when the Muse is all about frosty shimmering shades. The snow is laying on the ground outside and the wind is blowing so hard it feels like it’ll knock you clear off your feet so hues of frosty white, peach, blue and purple are definitely in style today.
I think an icy, cool look a la the Ice Queen for the Holidays is so very chic and fitting with both the season and the weather!
Let me show you the perfect palette for creating a gorgeous shimmering Ice Queen look that’s sure to be a hit this season!
The Isadora Dazzling Diamond Collection totally caught my eye this season due to it’s gorgeous packaging and shimmering shades. Of course the Isadora Diamond Eye Shadow Palette ended up on my hit list right away with it’s gorgeous mirrored compact design and five cool, frosty shades of shadow. The Muse can’t resist all that goodness!
The palette contains five shades of extremely soft, silky, pigmented shadows that include frosty blue, shimmering white, sparkling peach, and two shades of purple. All the shades would be wholeheartedly approved by the Ice Queen herself I’m sure. I loved the finish of the shadows and they are like nothing I’ve ever tried before formula-wise in the eyeshadow world. They are quite light and soft with nice pigmentation however they do crease a fair bit so proper prepping prior to application is required to avoid a mess later in the day. I noticed the shades work best on their own and not combined with other colors in the palette. They blend nicely however when applying two or more shades you end up with a fair bit of a muddy look. Personally I think they look best on their own anyway so in keeping with that theme you’ll end up with five separate looks from the one palette.
The palette’s design is just as gorgeous as what it holds. The compact is a complete mirror design with Isadora’s logo on the top lid. This does cause major fingerprint problems but I simply wipe off with a soft cloth after I’ve used it and it’s back to it’s gorgeous self again!

At a tiny price tag of $21 USD I think that the palette is well worth picking up! I loved the cool look the shadows created and think they are quite flattering for not only the upcoming Holiday but also the cooler weather!
All in all the Isadora Diamond Eye Shadow Palette is definitely a nice little item to tuck into your stocking this season!

You won’t hear me ranting about dark colors and unusual shades when you see the new Shu Uemura Mirage Collection for Spring 2009.
Spring is an unusual time for cosmetics and you never know quite what you’ll get when new collections launch. Ideally I love softer, pastel shades for the Spring however that’s doesn’t always happen and sometimes bolder comes into play. However, this year I couldn’t be more excited about the Shu Uemura Mirage Collection which contains an array of softer colors that are most flattering to embrace the warmer weather when it breaks through the bleakness of Winter.
The collection is launching in Japan as of January 23rd however it’s arrival is already gracing the pages of Evil-bay! I got these images mailed to me this morning from an E-bayer whom already has a majority of the collection, at ridiculously jacked up prices, available for sale.
The collection includes four liner pencils in an array of softer, delicate shades such as pastel pink and purple. Also releasing are two limited edition eyeshadow trios which I’m quite excited about considering I haven’t seen a release of trios such as this since I picked up some released with the Shu Uemura Prism Collection. Also included are three new Glow On duos which include two contrasting shades of blush and finally a limited edition lip duo!
Shu Uemura Prism Collection Spring 2007
Whether the US will see any of these releases remains to be seen but at the moment it will release shortly in Japan to what the Muse expects to be great excitement as the collection is quite stunning.
All in all I can’t help but feel very Easter-like about the entire collection. Don’t get me wrong it’s extremely appealing but the shades remind me of fluffy yellow baby chicks and pastel dyed eggs……
What do you think?
