WANT IT: Fresh Rose Fresh Face Primer

Well gee I must be asleep because I didn’t notice that Fresh recently introduced a new primer to their collection. I was in Atlantic City this past weekend and while at the Bluemercury Apothecary Spa I came across Fresh Rose Fresh Face Primer.

Fresh+Rose+Fresh+Face+Primer

Read ahead for the deets!

This is the third release of primer from Fresh with High Noon and Twilight already a part of the collection. Although Fresh Rose Primer could easily be mistaken for Fresh Twilight at a glance and perhaps considered a dupe rest assured in texture and formula they are considerably different. I have Fresh Twilight and it’s an iridescent finish that casts a highlight on cheeks and face. After swatching Fresh Rose I was quite delighted that it was simply a white, fresh smelling primer that absorbed easily without leaving behind a finish of any kind.

Where as High Noon and Twilight cast a glow to skin Rose simply lays the foundation for a fresh, dewy face that you can follow up with makeup or just enjoy au natural.

Likey!

I didn’t buy it as I had already indulged too much that day at the Spa but I’m thinking it made end up in my basket shortly. It’s available at Fresh’s site right now if you find you’re yearning for it after reading this.

Anyone a lover of Fresh primers?

Which ones?

Lancome Fall Collection 2009: Lancome Declaring Indigo

Bjooti has the first images of the new Fall Collection from Lancome entitled Declaring Indigo.


I don’t always get excited about Lancome but sometimes they surprise me with delightful releases in the Fall such as the Mystery Game. Lancome Declaring Indigo is equally delightful with mysterious shimmering blues and touches of gold. I can get on board with loving all of this release particularly the shadow palettes and delicious shimmering golden powder!


What do you think?

Steal It: Pop Apple of the Cheeks Stain

Pop+Apple+of+my+Cheeks

I dunno if you recall but I reviewed Pop Apple of the Cheeks Lip and Cheek Stain several months ago. Well, good news, it’s on sale at Sephora!

I don’t pretend to know the mentality behind Sephora but they have these guys marked down as $12.60 and $9. Don’t ask me why one shade is more expensive than the other because I haven’t a clue. It’s one of life’s great mysteries that little feeble minded makeup users like ourselves were never meant to understand.

The good news is that these are a considerable mark down from the $18 or $19 I think I paid for them way back when. I think they make a rather fine fresh, natural makeup for Summer plus who doesn’t love stain that wears long, is sweatproof, and hot weather friendly?

Loves it! And all under $13 bucks (I kept it simple by saying under $13 bucks, don’t want to confuse anyone further with the $12.60 and $9 price plans over yonder).

Update Your Bookmarks Please?

Hey loves!

Quickie note. Please update your bookmarks. If you link me or if you have me stashed away on a bookmark site or on your taskbar or wherever I may be laying around please update the URL to read www.musingsofamuse.com

I know so so so so many of you have been with me since the start here at Musings when my URL used to read www.musemedia.blogspot.com but that’s since been changed to a custom URL.

I’m telling you this because blogger occasionally runs into problems with redirect (you may have experienced this the past week or more) which could cause a problem for you to view my site when in IE and using the old URL instead of the new one.

So please take a sec to update your bookmark or your blogroll or whatever to www.musingsofamuse.com

Thanks guys!

Love ya!
