Beauty on a Budget: L’Oreal HIP Matte Shadow Duo

LOreal HIP Matte Shadow Duo 3

The Muse wants to know, are there really people out there that work in mattes?   If so, I want you to know I admire you so bloody much.  Matte is probably one of thee most difficult mediums I’ve had the pleasure of working with.  I’m no expert at makeup application but I do think that shimmers, pearls, creams, etc…are way easier to blend and work with when compared to mattes.  Mattes are the work of the devil as far as this Muse is concerned.

However, if matte is your bag you’ll adore the fact that L’Oreal HIP now has a range of shadow duos that are matte in formula and highly pigmented.

Jump for it.

Musings of the Day: The Building Up of the Immune System

musings

I can’t be alone here.   Do you ever come across an incredible skincare, a foundation, or anything really…and after a year or so of use, suddenly, you become immune to it?

The foundation that made your skin flawless isn’t really doing the job anymore, or that concealer that hid everything isn’t really covering much at all, or how about that incredible moisturizer that soothed your dry skin which suddenly fails to hydrate your skin.

GASP!

Why?

The Muse Thinks Pink: Giveaways and Babblings

Hi Guys.

Happy Monday!  Hope Everyone had a super weekend and are nearly if not fully awake today.   I’d say I’m zombi-fied after a long weekend of partying extra hard, Halloween, gotta love it.

I wanted to take a moment out to thank each of you for joining in by donating this month for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I’d also like to thank each of you for commenting or posting a story about your experience with Breast Cancer.

Although It’s November 2nd today and October is over I’d like to take a second out to give you a chance, if you haven’t already, to enter into the giveaways I currently have active.  Tomorrow morning winners will be alerted via e-mail so you still have time to enter if you haven’t done so already.

With the help of some I managed to raise $71 dollars plus $200 of my own funds which will donated to the Breast Cancer Research Fund.  That’s a total of $271 dollars.  I hope I can perhaps surpass that and head for $300 or $350 so please if possible a donation of $1 to $2 would be greatly appreciated as it is going to a worthy cause.

Also your donation of $1 counts as a single entry into some of my great giveaways that are ongoing now. Each $1 gets you one entry, $2 will get you two, and so on and so forth.

Korres for the Cure contains an array of “pink” products from Korres which are valued at over $50.

Smashbox Pout Lipstick is also a giveaway for a limited edition Smashbox Lipstick made especially for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

And finally an Estee Lauder Elizabeth Hurley Lip Set is being given away as well which contains an array of great items from Estee Lauder.

Please check through each giveaway separately as some are open to non-US readers which gives you a chance to win even if you live in Europe, Asia, or elsewhere.

Since I got so many comments on some of the giveaways I didn’t reply to each one personally but I did want to address each of you in this post and offer up a great big thanks for joining in during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Each of us can make a difference in fighting this disease until a cure is found.
