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.
Not sure if I got you all pumped about H20+ as of yet but if by chance I have and you’re overwhelmed what to try first, you’ll be happy to hear about the kits they offer. H20+ has several great skincare kits available so you don’t have to choose to test one single large item that you may not like! You can get a selection of 3-4 items in one kit for a low price that allows you to test out a few choice offerings from H20+.
Right now it’s my go to skincare and I’m enjoying the ride fully. I recently placed a haul order which I’ll tell you more about later but for now let me introduce you to the H20+ Sea Results Starter System.
Jump for it!
These kits are available for a variety of skin problems and contain up to four items for a mere $19.50. It’s a great way to introduce yourself to the line and see if you’ll like it. So far I’m having great results with H20+ and I can possibly…gulp…see it replacing my Lush moisturizers.
The H20+ Sea Results Renew Kit contains a variety of items for cleansing and repairing skin. Particularly it concentrates on fine lines and wrinkles. The kit includes four items total in mini form.
H20+ Sea Results Sea Mineral Cleanser H20+ Marine Toner H20+ Sea Results Line Mender H20+ Sea Results Eye Mender Plus
First off the item I loved the most that I’ll will be purchasing a bigger size of would be the H20+ Sea Results Mineral Cleanser. I normally stay clear of cleansers that are of a cream consistency as they don’t seem to work great at removing makeup. The formula of this is a moisturizing, loose, slightly runny cream. I’d probably miss on this if I had known of it’s formula to begin with but I sure am glad I was oblivious as it’s terrific! The formula is very gentle on my face and feels cooling and refreshing. You can literally feel it wipe away makeup and grime while refreshing the skin with a burst of moisturizing hydration. It doesn’t leave me feeling tight or itchy after use and feels like I rinsed with cool water and naught else. Very nice stuff.
Now I wasn’t too impressed with the H20+ Marine Toner. It feels well enough on my face but I didn’t really notice anything particularly exciting about it aside from the fact it was simply a toner without much fanfare. Unexpected as I’ve grown used to great things from H20+ lately.
The other two items in the collection I can’t say I’ve seen results as I’ve yet as it’s only been a week and a half since I’ve used either. I will say the Eye Mender Plus is a great eye cream so far as it’s creamy and very moisturizing. The Line Mender probably isn’t useful as of yet since I don’t have lines on my face that need mending, thank god, but I suppose it’ll make a nice treatment regardless, can never start too early fighting wrinkles, even ones that aren’t there.
Overall, the kit is a great little bang for your buck. H20+ Sea Results are available in any number of options from fine lines, to oil control, and even extra hydration so you don’t have to settle on this particular kit you have options available depending on your skin type.
These are a fine deal and a great way to become neighborly with the brand.
