The Muse has found that there are two types of people in the world. Type one who absolutely adore Soap & Glory and think the sun rises and falls around it and type two who think it’s all rather chav-ailious (derived from the word chav).
Well cash in my chav card because I happen to be a type one personality. I absolutely adore the line and I’m ever so excited to see the newest releases that have popped up on Boots UK.
Jump for it!
The Muse is all about easy clean up when it comes to fall out. I have a serious problem with fall out. Ugh. I’ve taken to wrapping a finger in scotch tape and using it to pick up any glittery bits and bobs but occasionally I do run out of the house with all sorts of wack on my face. Shrug. Oh wells.
Over a year ago I discovered and reviewed for you life saving Shadow Shields. My god these so changed the way I did makeup. They are basically a thin cotton pad cut in a half moon shape with a stick back. You stick this under your eye and it easily captures your shadow fall out for easy clean up. Loves it!
Now get this.
Sephora has shadow shields! ha!
Yup, yup now you can get ‘em at Sephora. Interesting right?
I do suggest getting them directly from Shadow Shields though as you get 30 for $9.99 where as the Sephora Brand are 30 for $16. But hey I think it’s awesome that Sephora has ‘em now since it’s easy enough to hop in store and snag some when I run low rather than waiting on shipping.
Anyone a Shadow Shield user?
How do you battle fall out woe?
The Muse heard about Clarins Holiday oh…mmm..’bout a month or so ago. My Clarins rep was ever so happy to share the deets about Clarins Holiday 2009 when I kindly asked and I proceeded to drool all over the place. Now at the time I just had a nice little write up about what was coming out but a few days ago I saw the pictures and my jaw dropped.
Clarins Palazzo d’Oro Collection is everything I love about a holiday collection with a heavy emphasis on sparkling golds for a super glamorous look.
Check it after the jump and be prepared to be wowed!
Prescriptives goes out with one last big hooray! Many of you emailed and asked me if the Prescriptives Holiday Collection 2009 would be available for purchase. I wasn’t certain at the time but good news, Nordstrom has it up and available for purchase and I imagine the Prescriptives site and your local counters will launch shortly as well.
Jump for it!
As you know this month I am all about thinking pink! I’m trying quite hard to raise both awareness and money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation which is my charity of choice for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So far I’ve raised $21 and have plans of donating $200 of my own personal funds to the cause. I was originally doing a Comment 4 the Cure post which would donate a dollar each time someone posted a comment but I fear everyone got somewhat wrapped up in the giveaway I was doing and forgot to put a comment in that post. My donation of $200 still remains firm if you do or do not comment but I hope you will consider placing a comment in that post.
To those who have taken a minute out and donated a $1 or more thank you VERY much. I greatly appreciate it and it’s going to a good cause.
All the giveaways I’m doing this month will run until October 31 and a winner will be randomly selected from those who entered and alerted via email.
Today I’m thinking pink with the limited edition Smashbox Pout Lipstick which is a beautiful way that Smashbox is giving back. Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Pout will raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. With each purchase of this lipstick a 40% portion of the proceeds will be donated to Komen Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The lipstick is a baby doll pink shade which is quite mod. It has a custom sleeve which was inspired by the Fashion for the Cure benefit. The color is highly sought after currently and quite surprisingly talked about on all the makeup forums I visit.
The Muse has teamed up with Smashbox to giveaway one Pout Lipstick to a lucky winner. In order to enter you can do a few things.
