The Muse is like any other girl and loves being spoiled rotten. She’s particularly good at spoiling herself rotten of course. Recently, when she received The Lip Slip by Sara Happ she couldn’t help but feel extra special and spoiled.
You may very well know Sara Happ from her extensive line of lip scrubs but recently she launched a brand new product entitled The Lip Slip. The Lip Slip is a super luxe balm that truly indulges a girl’s need for an extra pampering lip balm.
When I got my Lip Slip it was packaged in a golden bronze box with pale pink lettering and a cute white ribbon, indeed this was like getting a diamond ring, can you say spoiled? I was so enthralled and delighted with the pretty packaging I almost forgot that the actually product was INSIDE the box. After setting the box by my computer keyboard and admiring it from afar for the better part of an hour I decided it was time to open it up. The box and ribbon somehow hypothesized me into being extra gentle and careful as I slowly untied the ribbon, lifted the sparkling box lid, and proceeded to peek inside.
Was it a chocolate bon bon? A diamond ring? Earrings? Nope, better. It was a big chunky jar filled with a luscious uniquely scented pink lip balm! I’m simply at a loss for words how to explain what Lip Slip smells like. It’s a bit cakey, a tiny bit spicy, and maybe a hint of bubblegum? It’s interesting and very different to say the least.
The Lip Slip is simply a glorified lip balm. This isn’t your everyday run of the mill balm, tis glorified people. Super emollient, extremely thick, amazingly moisturizing, oh and it’s pink with a tiny bit of sparkle. I always find that pink and sparkle are very important factors in the Muse’s lip balm world. The balm is really super thick and once applied your lips will be praising the gods in happiness for supplying them with such a gorgeous moisturizing lip treatment. Although The Lip Slip suggests wearing it all day or overnight the Muse is leaning towards overnight only. The formula is quite thick and I’m not a lover of anything thick on my lips throughout the day so I feel like this would make an amazing overnight treatment. At the moment it’s making a guest starring appearance on my night stand and probably will remain there all through the Winter when my lips need a quenching treatment to keep the evil dryness and cracking at bay! This softens and smooths and simply spoiled like no other balm I’ve tried, likey!
Overall, the Lip Slip by Sara Happ is a spoiled rotten indulgence and a complete win for this Muse. By all means it’s, of course, Muse Approved for purchase!

Although the Muse is a known sinner she likes to think of herself in an angelic light or even saintly one if you will!
In order to evoke her saintly nature she gets out her Lipstick Queen Saint!
I previously reviewed Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick for you and today I’m bringing you my review on the Lipstick Queen Saint Lipstick.
You might be wondering what the different is between a Sinner Lipstick and a Saint one so allow the Muse to explain. Lipstick Queen Sinner is a matte, color rich lipstick with no shimmer, frosting, or anything else aside from straight, creamy, pigmented color.
Today I’m reviewing Saint and Saint happens to be a color rich formula just like Sinner. It’s pigmented with a fantastic color pay off on lips however the formula is a tad bit different. The formula of Lipstick Queen Stain is much like traditional lipsticks you’d buy from many brands with a light, moisturizing formula. Now don’t let that traditional note fool you as this isn’t like any brand of lipstick you’ve probably tried before. What sets it apart from other brands? Pigmentation. Color payoff is amazing on these lipsticks be it the Saint version or the Sinner. It’s one of the key elements that makes Lipstick Queen such a hit and amazing lipstick choice.
Color glides on perfectly with a nice moisturizing finish. If I had to choose I’d say I’m more saintly than I am a sinner as I like the moist feeling of this particularly formula when compared to the matte version of Sinner. Color payoff, as I mentioned a million times, is simply amazing. After trying two other Lipstick Queen products I’m still amazed and absolutely thrilled each time with how pigmented the products are! I’m wearing Lipstick Queen Saint in Berry below but I did think it looked slightly like the color I tried for Lipstick Queen Sinner but they are different shades however look pretty much the same. I assumed the shade was a sheer berry but it’s more of a deep peachy brown. Very nice and quite lovely with warmer eye looks!
Overall, Lipstick Queen Saint is a heavenly formula and truly a gorgeous product! Any and all Lipstick Queen products are Muse Approved for purchase! This Muse is definitely a fan of Lipstick Queen Saint.

What is it with the Muse and monkeys? I fear that I’m getting in touch with my inner primate whenever I see anything that has a Paul Frank design slapped on in! Must be the left over effects of evolution but I consider Julius as my best friend!
Check out what has me hyped after the jump!
Now’s the time to get my inner monkey on with new Paul Frank Lipsmackers, well maybe now isn’t the time but late 2009 it’ll be the time!
Paul Frank has collaborated with Lipsmacker to create nine monkey loving flavors (banana pie, banana split, etc….) that are sure to please any and all Paul Frank fans and collectors. Each tube of balm is decorated with everyone’s favorite cheeky monkey, Julius!
Read more (and see more pics) about the Paul Frank for Lipsmacker collaboration by visiting with NYLON.

September there was quite a roar of excitement at the possibility of Jill Stuart Cosmetics making their way to the US however a recent article in Elle says that may not be the case!
Jump ahead for the sad news….
According to Emily Hebert of Elle News Blog the Jill Stuart Cosmetic Line will not be launching at a counter near you anytime soon but instead will debut at the Jill Stuart flagship store in Soho.
“……the beauty products—which were used by makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury at Jill Stuart’s spring 2009 show—will debut in late spring/early summer at Stuart’s flagship store in Manhattan’s SoHo district (no exact date is set).”
Well so much for all the excitement that maybe Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks, and other fine department stores would have the makeup collection on sale!
