You could go with this:

I adore Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. Creamy, nicely tinted, an SPF 20 keeps me clamoring back for more please but it does have a $42 USD price tag eep!

If you’re not wanting to shell out that much cash why not go with that:

tinted+moisturizers+001

mark Tinted Moisturizer is $8 USD contains 1.6oz of product (that’s an oz more than Laura’s) and has an SPF of 15. You’re forgoing a little of the SPF but the size and price sure is right.

Bobbi and the Muse? BBF forevers! The Muse is loving Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek but even I admit it’s tiny for $22 USD. You could go with this:

cheek+tint+001

It’s ok if you’re not wanting to fork over that $22 bucks. You can snag a mark Just Pinched Cheek Tint for $6 which is slightly bigger and is virtually the same product as Bobbi’s version. Go with that:

cheek+tint+003

A little of this, a little of that makes for a happy beauty junkie! Hope these options save you a little money!

Steal It: Cameleon 12 Color Professional Make-Up Palette

Oh baby I think I’m a want you!

makeup+palette

I’ve no idea who Cameleon is but they look like they make a mighty fine palette!

This little guy is $7 bucks over at Sasa and I do so admit to being tempted. Those shadows looked baked and quite pigmented…..likey! They also remind me a fair bit of the Terra Eyeshadows I reviewed a hundred years ago…..

Hmm to get it or not to get it that is the question!

Fill In the Beauty: Smoky Eyes

Fill in the Beauty blank above with your answer in the comment box and click ahead to read what creates my favorite smoky eye look!

This wasn’t a hard one for the Muse. I know at least a dozen people who will shout MAC Carbon Black! But for me the perfect smoky eye comes housed in a dual palette by Japanese brand, KATE. KATE Dual Carat Eyeshadow in BK1 has two shades that create a simple and easy smoky eye that always comes out flawless for the Muse and with just the right amount of shimmer (I love shimmer in my smoky eyes).

Count my beauty blank filled with a bit of KATE!

Beauty Most Unusual: Deluscious Cookies and Borba

borba+cookies+0012

The Muse digs cookies. Mmm cookies and milk, good stuff. You know DeLuscious looks like they make seriously good looking cookies. The Muse can get on board with good looking cookies.

But get this….their cookies happen to be laced with something other than the typical ingredients you’d find in your standard chocolate chip variety.

Click it to find out what’s inside these cookies!

Considering Borba has bottled up tropical juices with anti-aging, clarifying, replenishing, and other goodies for your skin it was only a matter of time that they got to the cookies.

Come to the darkside…we have cookies…cookies with good for your skin ingredients. Ok, be right there!

Deluscious has teamed up with Borba to create a line of vitamin-enhanced oatmeal raisin and chocolate white chocolate toffee cookies (that’s chocolate twice peeps obviously this is serious skincare we are talkin’ here) to help your skin look flawless. Look at that? I’m so printing this out and taking it over to my mum’s who proclaimed how bad chocolate was for my skin when I was a growing teenage girl.

I think the promise of a cookie that creates flawless skin could be a bit much but I’m willing to try, for the sake of beauty, etc…not because I like cookies mind you.

Borba+Cookies+003

Here’s the scoop, the cookies contain antioxidants and nutrients such as acia and noni berries plus vitamins B3, B6, and B12 plus Flaxseed. I honestly get a bit too much Flaxseed in my diet (I’m addicted but that’s a story for another day) so I might be over doing it by indulging in these.

But hey sure sounds like a cure all for your body and your skin! You can get half a dozen from Deluscious for $24.95 USD, milk is sold separately.

As for the Muse she’s still debating if this is Beauty Most Unusual or something that could actually work.

I’m leaning towards a tad unusual for now.

What do you think?

Would you like your cookies laced with skincare and a side of Flaxseed?

Tell the Muse!
