Beauty Babble: Makeup On The Go

Beauty Babble 1

Hey Chicas!

I was feeling the need to Beauty Babble today as it’s been a while since we did one.

If you want to babble with me here’s how it works. To play the game you’ll basically be filling in a series of questions about what you’d do in certain situations where cosmetics would be needed.

Today’s babble is about makeup on the go!

Guess Who’s Back? MAC Volcanic Ash

MAC Style Black 1

Today the Muse is hoping and praying for you.   As of September 24th MAC releases Style Black and the Muse is every so hopeful you’re hauling it.  No, no not the color cosmetics…..no worries this Muse understands not everyone can pull off black lipstick.

She’s talking about the re-release of MAC Volcanic Ash.

Oh joy!  Bless Be!   The gods have answered my prayers.  MAC Volcanic Ash is repromoted for a limited time…yes it’s only a limited time so best get a case of it.

I should hope you’ve tried this incredible face scrub.  Last year I did a review and a huge rave on MAC Volcanic Ash.    I’m delighted that it’s returning and equally pleased they changed the packaging.  Originally Volcanic Ash came housed in a plastic jar which was a big old mess.   This year they released it in a squeeze bottle which is absolutely ideal and way more hygienic.   See?  The MAC Gods listen to our rants and improve on their failures.

On top of the release of MAC Volcanic Ash you’ll get the added bonus of Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask.  I was so smitten with the latter I didn’t get a chance to try the mask on the last release so I’m every so happy to get my chance to haul it.  Anyone try the mask?  Tell me the deets.

Please tell me you’re as overjoyed as I am at the promise of Volcanic Ash’s re-release.

If you never tried it you absolutely must!  It’s incredible.

Musings of the Day: The Pressure Is On

Picture this….

The Muse is at her local makeup counter (pick a counter, any counter) and a MA (makeup artist) stops over to start pimpin’ her wares.  Maybe this is the Muse’s first time trying this brand or her normal MA is on vacation or some such thing.

Now when have you headed to a counter or even Sephora and NOT run into some aggressive MA.  I think it’s rare to not run into someone who wants to sell you the entire counter and than some more.  I mean anything….orange foundation?  “Oh my god this color is perfect for you!”  Vomit Colored Eye Shadow?  “This will really brighten up your eyes!”  And on and on and on…..

Which brings me to today’s Musings!

Are you a push over?

Do you handle aggressive MA’s or sales reps with an iron fist?

Or do you get sucked into their vortex and end up spending money on stuff you really didn’t want to begin with!

Jump ahead to find out if the Muse is a stand up kinda girl or a big mush when the pressure is on at the counter.

Beauty Abroad: Banila Co De La Couture II

Banila Co De La Couture II2

Banila Co hits the Fall scene with a brand new…ahem…a rehashed release of De La Couture II. If you’re a fond fan of Korean makeup you probably remember last year’s release of Banila Co De La Couture. I imagine they took the idea and just ran with it again this year. Although it’s new items and new colors it does still fail to wow me into believing I absolutely need it and can’t breath without it. Dare I say last year’s colors were actually more exciting!
