Bestest news ever. The popular Korean brand, The Face Shop, has launched a brand new US Website. This is absolutely thrilling news for me because as you know I’m a very big fan of Korean skincare and cosmetics. As more and more Korean brands launch US websites (Etude House, The Face Shop, etc….) I can’t help the proud mama feeling as many of these brands appeared on my blog over a year or more ago when they were still available within Korea and not yet launched in the US.
Jump ahead for more details on new Face Shop site!
I just browsed the site myself and it’s just now in it’s infant stage as a few of the color collections and skincare items haven’t been updated with product as of yet however they have many, many inexpensive skincare items that are online and available for purchase.
Like many Korean brands you get quality for a very low price. One thing that’s exciting about this launch is the fact that sheet masks and BB Creams are available for purchase. As you’ve heard me discuss in the past both sheet masks and BB Creams are somewhat unknown to the US market. The Asian market is saturated with face masks of all kinds and sheet masks are a popular part of an Asian’s girl daily skincare regime. BB Creams are also unknown with the US which gives me hope that they will become more popular with The Face Shop leading in on these. So far only one cream is available but I hope they’ll begin to launch further BB’s from the line as I’ve tried a few from Korea and they are quite good. Unknown to me The Face Shop products have also been available in Walgreens. Ha who knew?
Anyone ordering from the new online shop will recieve free samples with each purchase and orders over $25 will recieve a free Mask Sheet and finally orders of $50 will get free shopping and a Nature Garden Cleansing Bar for Face and Body.
I should be working this morning but I can’t keep my hands off the new Estee Lauder Virtual Makeover Widget.
I swear widgets like this remind me of my first Barbie Styling Head. Remember those? A decapitated Barbie head who’s hair you could style and who’s face you could make up. I remember mine looking like a clown because I’d go to town with blush and red lipstick. If I recall correctly I even gave mine a killer haircut so she ended up with a stylish (I use that term loosely), slick bob cut aka a spiky hacked mess of blond hair.
Barbie was never the same after I was done “making her up”!
I’m all grown up now and the appeal of trying on makeup still holds that certain magic.
Jump ahead to learn how you can try any number of items from the Estee Lauder catalog with their new Virtual Makeover Widget.

Barbie still loves Stila this Fall season, you’re not alone Barbie, the Muse really loves Stila too.
Quite excited that Stila has released a set of Barbie themed Lip Glazes this Fall, does this mean we might see more Barbie color cosmetics soon?
Jump ahead for a peep!
Barbie Loves Stila Lip Glaze is a trio of Stila’s popular gloss in shades Barbie would simply adore. A shimmer-infused and glossy finish formula in various shades of pink will give your pout a splash of color.
The Muse wonders does she need any excuse at all to discuss pink gloss with you? Naaaa. Pink glosses are the root of my girlish good nature. My new favorite shade? Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Cabana Crush.
I heart you so.
Jump ahead to muse it with me!
This is my first whirl with Clinique Long Last Glosswear and I likey so far. The formula isn’t tacky or sticky and glides on rather nicely plus it’s heaps pigmented so you can easily get away with gloss alone minus stains or lipstick under it. It’s formula is fragrant free so those sensitive to flavors or scents in their glosses can rest assured this won’t break you out. At $14 it’s also fairly inexpensive!
Now that we got pass it’s good features let me tell you about Cabana Crush!
Cabana Crush is a lively pink shade with golden shimmer. It has a glossy, shiny finish with a hint of fine sparkle. The shade is quite complimenting with Summer and great to pair up with a warm bronze look for a pop of pink on lips. If you’re a lover of pink this should appeal.
Overall, Musings of cool colors of pink aside, Clinique Long Last Glosswear is a rather ideal pick for a small price tag. It’s in the range of a MAC Lipglass but with a large size. If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to get glossy, shiny, pigmented lips here’s your ticket to ride.
