Now the Muse wouldn’t necessarily call having your own Payless Shoe Collection fierce. Payless and the fierce realm…well let’s say it’s like comparing apples with oranges.
Never you mind though, the accessory news of the hour is that the new Limited Edition Christian Siriano Shoe Collection has officially launched for Fall 2009 at a Paypless store near you!
Jump ahead for the details.
Honestly, none of the styles appeal to me as they are a tad too middle age crusty for this Muse but the price tag of $34.99-$49.99 does make it fashionably inexpensive couture.
As for this Muse I think I can safely skip….
What do you think of the new line?
Yay or nay?
Available now at Payless.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation gets a bad wrap on most reviews the Muse has read but I’ll tell you a secret…shhh…I kinda dig it!
Jump ahead for my review.
When the Muse is feeling all lazy and isn’t up for a whole face of makeup she uses a dab of Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation and calls it a day.
Before I tell you why I like it let me get the bad stuff out of the way. One, it’s likely going to settle into fine lines or large pores if you sport either. Two, it’s not going to mattify your skin, yes the name says matte, but I experienced no oil control when using it.
I hear so many reviews of how people look made up with this on and how it has a cakey finish and honestly I’ve experienced none of this. A simple dab will do you well so yes if you proceed to slather this on as you would a normal foundation chances are you will be made up. However, a simple dab or two and you’ll be golden. This is the kinda foundation I dig for the days I’m being lazy. It’s an ideal foundation for anyone who doesn’t need nor desire a ton of coverage. It doesn’t wear incredibly long but it’s great for running errands with or heading out for a quick bite, etc….as it evens out skin tone and creates a good canvas for a simple blush or cheek stain. It’s my minimal makeup product of choice.
The formula is a thick, whipped mousse that blends quite nicely onto my skin. I don’t have fine lines nor do I have large pores so it absorbs easily, mess-free, without settling on my face like a mask. It feels incredibly silky and almost silicon-like. It’s pretty pigmented and evens out my tone well erasing dullness and creating a good canvas for makeup. I tend to wear very minimal makeup when I use it as I don’t think it’ll hold well with a whole load of makeup but for use with a bit of cheek stain or powder blush it’s perfection.
I’m not keen on the packaging as I’m a germ-a-phobe so dipping my fingers into a pot to apply isn’t my ideal idea of good packaging. I tend to use a disposable sponge with each use that way I can get a dab on a new sponge without handling the product and creating a breeding playground for bacteria. After use I simply toss the sponge.
A find one or two dabs can do my entire face and I’m left looking quite flawless and ready for blush. As I mentioned above it doesn’t wear incredibly long and feels like it melts off after about 2-3 hours of use but for the days I’m just running to the grocery or something unimportant it’s great as I’m not keen on going out completely nude without a face on.
Overall, Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation isn’t going to change your coverage life but it’s a great one for minimal makeup days. If you have good skin and don’t require a ton of coverage minus large pores or fine lines this should be a great little find for natural coverage.
Call me crazy but I tend to lean towards the likey side of this foundation.
