The Beauty Budget: What Are You Spending Your Money On?

Although it’s difficult for me to believe, I do realize not everyone is dropping hard cold cash on cosmetics daily. I consider doing so a perk of Musings of a Muse but prior to there ever being a I still made room for Jello aka beauty.

My beauty budget tends to flow in different directions all the time, it really all depends on what my current obsessions are. Like right now I’m on a weird fragrance kick and I’ve been trying and purchasing out new perfumes and such so my color cosmetic budget is down and my fragrance one is up. Come Winter my skincare budget will rocket as I attempt to find some miracle cure for my dry skin and of course, in the Fall I search out all the best brown and gold eyeshadow so my cosmetic budget goes back up again.

It’s every changing you see.

But on a whole, I think my beauty budget stays pretty much the same.

Armani Girl Megan Fox: Megan Fox New Face of Armani Cosmetics

Megan Fox is the new face of Giorgio Armani Cosmetics and will appear in a new ad campaign starting this year. Megan already has Emporio Armani underwear and Armani Jeans under her belt so this isn’t too new a venture for her.

A spokeswoman said: “Megan embodies the spirit of the women of today: free, confident and seductive. Her beautiful features reveal femininity, sensuality and strength.”

Aside from being a tad young (she’s 24) I think she’ll do well as the face of Armani. Megan reminds me of Bettie Page in some ways (not all ways as Dita Von Teese gets that award) and has a certain classy elegance.

I think it’s a yay for Megan Fox.

I’m quite eager to see the promotional images when they release!

What do you think?

Megan Fox as the new face of Armani Cosmetics?



If nay, who would you choose?

Share it!

Off topic, but speaking of Dita Von Teese, I’d like to see her appearing in my makeup ads. Aside from MAC I don’t see Dita appearing in many this side of the country. Well, maybe not, I’d be broke buying everything she pimped out probably…..
