Urban Decay Holiday 2009: Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box Review and Swatches

As you know already Urban Decay hit the scene early with their Holiday Collection. They are probably one of the first brands that have their Holiday stock up and available for retail on their site. Pretty exciting and impressive considering it seems like December is ages away but in reality it’s never to early to get shopping done early now is it?

I’ve already introduced you to all of the offerings from Urban Decay Holiday 2009 and today I’ll be bringing you some swatches and a review of one of their newest palettes for the season entitled Show Pony Shadow Box. It’s fierce peeps, you so needs one.

Musings of the Day: Your Worst or Funniest Makeup Counter Experiences

The Muse is fond of biatchin’ herself a blue streak when it comes to terrible customer service but thankfully she always gets great makeup time at her fav counters at Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Saks. I’ve always had the pleasure of being treated beautifully well at counters that I purchase from. However, I do choose to deal with the same reps over and over again which could account for the good service I get as they know my likes, they know I’m out to spend some money, and they just know a bit about me and who I am.

On occasion I’ve been known to run into a rep or two who is snotty or not helpful or just plain rude.

Dr. Jart All Out Black Head Review

Last night the Muse got home extra late and decided to do battle with the one or two stubborn blackheads on her nose.  It’s never a good idea to go into full on war with blackheads when you’re tired but she must have been terribly exhausted to attempt it.

As you may know from reading my past posts I’ve been full on at war with these blackheads for a while and my quest has lead me on many adventures to rid myself of them from the downright weird to the incredibly good way of winning this epic battle.

My search recently led me to Dr. Jart All Out Black Head as it gets rave reviews in Korea. Asia understands the drama of blackheads so of course I was ever trusting that Dr. Jart was going to rid me of evil blackheads.
