Beauty News: Crabtree & Evelyn Files Files For Bankruptcy

Crabtree+%26+Evelyn

Crabtree & Evelyn filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday making it the latest to succumb to the poor economy.

Read ahead for the details!

The company currently operates 126 stores in 24 states and employs around 950 people. Although they are filing bankruptcy they are not going completely out of business but will be reorganizing the way they do business which will include closing several stores.

Crabtree & Evelyn is a specialty shop and with larger offerings from stores such as Bath and Body Works offering items at a cheap price it must be difficult to keep business up. I’m saddened to hear this news and have hopes with time the company will prosper once again.

Yay or Nay: Urban Decay Facial Primers

summer yayornay

The shiz has hit the fan and Urban Decay’s Fall Collection for 2009 is making it’s early guest starring appearance on Urban Decay’s website. It’ll be a month before Sephora gets the entire collection but UD has it all in stock and ready for your purchasing pleasure.

The collection is pretty special or at least I think it is and plenty of it has the potential for greatness, even if I have yet to try any of it.

urban+decay+fall+collection+2009

I think the primers are probably thee most exciting item in the collection. What do you think?

Two primers, two different fixes. Are Urban Decay Facial Primers a Yay or a Nay for you? Will you indulge?

Jump ahead to hear my yayin’ or nayin’!

Obviously doesn’t take a rocket scienctist to figure I’m drugged up, shuga shirrup hyped over not one but two facial primers (their is an ode to Mags in there somewhere!).

I guess I shouldn’t be that hyped over primers as I’m virtually poreless. Yes, I’m blessed. But it’s true I have no pores but I do have dry skin, honestly I’d rather be riddled with large pores than sport flaky dry skin yak! So I suppose primers aren’t exciting for the likes of me.

But oh no no….I NEED these primers.

Just think about the success and cult following that Urban Decay Primer Potion has. Imagine a company that gave birth to the holy grail of all eye primers that goes out and creates a facial primer. Honestly, can they go wrong with this?

I doubt it.

So….

Yay or Nay?

BIG yay! I have an ickle little feeling in the pit of my stomach that Urban Decay Facial Primers are going to be a big yay!

Who’s with me?

Are you going to indulge?

Tell the Muse!

Jelly Pong Pong Cheek Puff Fluffy Cheek Stain Review and Swatches

More Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Bag haulin’ ahead chicas!

Jelly Pong Pong Cheek Puff Fluffy Cheek Stain was included with one of my deluxe bags that I recently hauled from Jelly Pong Pong. After getting the bag I gave the stain away to my mate Chris because I already had one. I realized after giving it to her that I should really haul my own and review it for you here!

Click ahead for the deets!

Jelly Pong Pong Cheek Puff Fluffy Cheek Stain is $14 bucks and considerably cheaper than Stila Convertible Color and Bobbi Brown Potted Rouge. Same consistency, same formula, just available in a single shade though.

I dunno why but my first try with Cheek Puff was kinda meh but I did grow to absolutely adore it soon after. Probs I was ranting over it’s lack of variety in shades but I soon set my grudge away and just enjoyed Cheek Puff for it’s cuteness, inexpensive price tag, and pretty flush it gave my face and cheeks.

No one can accuse Jelly Pong Pong Cheek Puff of not being adorable. Packaged in a sweet little box featuring a baby chick this blush comes housed in a screw top jar that should last you well into the next millennium since a little tiny bit goes a very long way.

Key benefit of the blush is it’s incredible staying powder. Pretty much lasts all day through the warm weather, through the rain and snow, past all the humidity and sweat, and right on through your eight hour work day. It’s one of those sticky slightly tacky blushes that blends smoothly and adheres to skin like glue. It’s not going anywhere, anytime soon.

The shade is a universally flattering dusky pink which is suitable for just about any skin tone as it can be built up to an intense pop of pink or just dabbed on for a very simple flush of rose.

One of my favorite ways to use it is by blending onto my cheeks and topping with a MAC Mineralized Skinfinish, it goes incredibly well with Petticoat! The results are flushed cheeks with a light highlight of gold and rose.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive, cute, long wearing cream blush for Summer here it is. Jelly Pong Pong Cheek Puff is fantastic and Muse Approved for purchase all the way!
