Musings of the Day: What Do You Conceal?

As a girl or a woman (I tend to think of myself as a girl, the Muse is quite like Peter Pan she may never grow up!) you probably conceal daily. Maybe you conceal your eyes or maybe a pimple or a scar….

What about your feet? Indeed. Some people supposedly conceal their feet. Yes, for serious they do. T!NTALIZE is proof that people do indeed conceal their feet.

The Muse personally doesn’t conceal her feet but she’s somehow become fascinated with people that do!

Two chicas, Sidney and Allyson created an entire line of foot concealer to make your feet gorgeous and flawless. The concealer works to conceal corns, scarring, veins, and other minor foot imperfections. The Muse can’t say she’d be willing to try a foot concealer but the idea seems interesting enough!

Speaking of concealing things……what do you conceal? Your feet? Would you consider concealing your feet?

How about your eyes? Face? Tell me about it!

As for the Muse she conceals her under eyes but aside from that she doesn’t bother much. I never, ever cover up pimples with concealer and my foundation pretty much covers up any dullness I have on my skin! So a quickie swipe or three under my eyes is what I conceal.

How about you?

Share it!

P.S. It’s ok if you want to admit to concealing your feet, we won’t make fun of you…..too much.

blinc Mascara Review

You know you’re a makeup junkie when you get terribly excited about mascara that comes in a tin tube! Doesn’t that just get your blood pumping? Or maybe that’s only my insanity but I’d like to think I’m not the only one around that runs around in circles when she sees interesting packaging concepts (if you don’t get excited just lie and say you do to make me feel better about it!).

blinc Mascara comes in this rather cute little tin with a screw top! Rather cute packaging for a mascara. Of course this isn’t the actual mascara it’s just the outer packaging doh!

Click it for the review!

blinc Mascara is probably the first “tube” mascara I ever used and if I think about it’s possibly the first of it’s kind on the market prior the the “tube” craze that hit the mascara market by storm earlier this year.

blinc Mascara gives both volume, length, and a natural look that lasts all day. As with most tube mascara it wraps each lash in a gentle formula that’s waterproof but manages to wash away simply with warm water and a bit of cleanser. It doesn’t fade, it doesn’t fake or cake or flake, and most importantly it doesn’t give you the look of a raccoon.

Pretty much anyone can use blinc mascara as it’s non irritating formula is gentle even for those with sensitive eyes or contact lens wearers.

The overall effect of the mascara isn’t very dramatic but it does perform decently and creates a nice, soft longer lash look, it’s a very natural look. Anyone who likes tube mascara would definitely enjoy this one.

(apologies for the blurry picture)

Who might like it?

  • Anyone who likes tube mascaras!
  • Those who want their mascara to remain on all day but come off easily at the end of a long day.
  • Anyone who likes fuller lashes with a more natural, softer look.

blinc Mascara is available at www.blincinc.com

Anyone try?

Love it?

Lush Grease Lightning

Ahhh the good Lady Macbeth said it best when she uttered the words, “Out, damn’d spot! out, I say!” Haunted and obsessed by Duncan’s blood all the good lady wanted was the damn spot to be gone (even if it wasn’t really there at all)!

lush+grease+lighting

Flash forward, present day and still the words of out damn spot may fall from your lips on occasion when you see a spot or two rise up on your face! And of course we even get as obsessed as Lady Macbeth with those damn spots.

Never fear, Lush is here to save you from spots and make your face clear and happy again without the guilt of Duncan’s blood on your hands too! Phew, thanks Lush the Muse was worried for a second there.

Jump ahead for it!

The Muse likes to think if Lady Macbeth was of sound body and mind she would appreciate the benefits of a good spot treatment like Lush Grease Lightning! Or perhaps John Travolta might make better use…..


Hmmm one does wonder about these things!

Whatever the case may be we can be sure that we’ll make plenty use out of Lush Grease Lightning. Brand new to the Lush skincare collection is this super spot zapping face gel! Made with aloe and witch hazel and plenty of other good for you ingredients this gel dries invisible and zaps those spots clear away!

lush+grease+lightning

Hmmm a natural spot remover? I can get on board with that. On occasion the Muse has been known to break out here and there so a spot treatment would be handy especially one made my Lush!

Likey!

Available now from Lush UK Mail Order (and soon to follow at Lush NA Mail Order).

Wants it?

Beauty Items The Muse Just Can’t Live Without

cosmetics

You ever have those very favorite products that seem so amazing, so great, so incredible that you feel like you couldn’t possibly live without them? Indeed, the Muse knows that feeling well!

Jump ahead for a few Beauty Items that I can’t live without.

Shills BB 6 in 1 BB Cream (review coming sometime soon) is something I can’t possibly live without. It’s one of thee best BB creams I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing! So much so that I’ve forsaken most every other BB Cream in my collection for it. This is love people.

Speaking of BB Creams no question that Etude House Magic Cream and InnisFree Trouble Care BB Cream are two of my other favs in the BB Cream world!


Benefit Coralista omg! I can’t think of three letters that explain how great Coralista is other than O M G. This pigmented peachy powder is my very favorite blush of all time.


On the topic of Benefit let’s not forget the awesomeness that is Thrrrob and my staple product, Benefit Lemon Aid.


I find that lately I can’t live without the very beautiful Ella Dean’s Beautiful Twist Lip Balm in Winter’s Cherry Snow Slushie Kisses. Who doesn’t like slushies? Especially cherry ones! Yum!


Although it’s sticky and tacky and ooey and gooey I probably couldn’t live without Lipstick Queen Shine Gloss. It gives my lips such incredible slippery shine plus it makes them look twice the size! Loves it!


The day NARS Super Orgasm entered my life I think the angel’s sung! What an incredible blush. Needs no commentary from me about it’s awesomeness.


I can’t live without Urban Decay Primer Potion and I don’t want to think about it not being in my life. ’nuff said.


Bobbi Brown Blush in Apricot entered into my collection quite by chance when I happened upon it at my local CCO. Ever after it’s been my staple blush and favorite shade!


Oh Bobbi your name is on my lips today! Let’s not forget how I went from feeling unsure about the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer palette and quickly having it become a staple product for me. I NEED this in my life.


Shu you know how to treat my lashes right. The cadillac of lash curlers would be my trust Shu Uemura Lash Curler, we be best buds.


Although it’s meant for aging skin I absolutely love Lancome Absolue Makeup. Flawless perfection comes to mind after use!


Speaking of perfection that would also come in my jar of Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer, nope can’t live without, can’t go for that!


Another beautiful foundation that graces my daily cosmetic regime would be Lavshuca Creamy Liquid Foundation, we loves each other for about a year now with no end in sight!


It’s Summer again so the Muse is hauling out Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in Glided Gold. Indeed, this product single handedly changed my mind about bronzers!


Life isn’t worth living without Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy in my life, golden perfection.


Mally Concealer System, worth it’s weight in gold peeps.



Majorca Majolica Mascara
probably couldn’t live without that and not willing to try either!
