Beauty Confessions: Washin’ Up the Brushes!

mac+brushes

Brushes. Brushes are so very important to makeup application. I have a slew of brushes since many I got in kits and of course I went a little buck wild purchasing a slew of MAC brushes when I first got into the brand.

Although I must confess…

Jump ahead to hear my beauty confession.

I haven’t washed mine in over a month. Oh my god I’m so ashamed of myself. Eep! I normally give them a proper wash with MAC Brush Cleaner at least every three weeks but after I went on holiday and came back it’s been well over a month since I cleaned them since I’ve been terribly busy. Indeed, a gross and possibly bacteria filled beauty confession.

I’ve sinned. Forgive me?

When was the last time you washed your brushes?

How often do you wash ‘em?

Yay or Nay: MAC Eye Shadows

summer yayornay

This is always an interesting topic to Muse about. MAC Eye Shadow that is. Are MAC Eye Shadows a Yay or a Nay for you?


Click ahead to find out if I’m yayin’ or nayin’!

I always find it interesting when people tell me they can do without MAC shadow. I happen to fall into the Yay crowd when speaking of MAC and eye shadow. I like the price, I like the variety, and I like the color payoff. Not alot to hate here. Call me a MAC groupie but if anything MAC does shadow right. I know occasionally it can get a tad repetitious after collecting a while and all the colors begin to run into each other after a while but I can honestly say I’m always delighted when I find an interesting, unique shade and I do think many shades are unique and different.


Yay it is for me!

Smooth, Silky Summer Legs: Schick Intuition Plus Razor Review

Growing up in my house was quite a treat especially with a nutter mum like mine (but I love her so much regardless of how crazy she is). For a lady that shops the dollar store like it’s Neiman Marcus you could understand her mentality of telling my sister and I that soap was the bestest shaving cream evers. From the first day I started shaving my legs my mother was the biggest supporter of using soap and water to get a clean, smooth shave. Ok, mum, not so much. I dunno about you but using soap so does not get me a clean, smooth shave. I think I get the job better done with conditioner than soap but since my mum is the dollar store queen she’d be the authority on using anything cheap (such as soap) to get the cleanest, smoothest shave possible.

Yes well that never worked for me. So please can I have my can of shaving cream now?

Of course when I seen the Schick Intuition Razor which had, you guessed it, a big bar of soap encasing the razor, I was skeptical to say the least. I mean this was everything I had rebelled against as teenager and now here I am trying out a razor that’s encased in a big old bar of soap.

Oy vey.

So I’m always up for admitting how terribly shallow I am which accounts for my fascination with the Schick Intuition Plus Razor. The razor is now available in three limited edition design styles and I wasn’t sure what got me more excited, the pink handle or those bloody limited edition words plastered all over it. Dontcha always get that belly flipping, oh my god must have it feeling when you hear the words limited edition? Even a razor gets me that hyper….God…I need a life and so do you because you know the feeling! Don’t lie!

So….the razor. Basically the razor is encased in a bar of soap that eliminates the need for shaving cream as it lathers itself, shaves and moisturizers in one step. Ok, I likey simplicity. Although the razor looks pretty bulky it actually performs quite well as it pivots and fits the contour of my leg nicely. The moisturizing head takes a second to lather up but after a few swipes it does begin to foam up and creates a nice glide for the blades. This doesn’t produce a mass amount of lather or foam but it does give enough to give a good glide to the razor which in turn gives me a nice, smooth shave. I like the idea of eliminating the need for shaving gel as I’m always fumbling around in the shower for the can but I also admit that it’s a crutch of some sort and I miss it when I’m shaving without it for some odd reason.

I didn’t experience any cuts or nicks using the razor and it gave me a good, clean shave. It did take a second for me to get used to the bigger handle but I quickly adjusted plus it’s pink so all was quickly forgiven, the Muse likes pink! I actually could get used to using this as it would be a bit cheaper for me than buying razors and shaving gel. I did read a review stating the soap ran out quickly but not for me, seems to last until the razor dulls or at least almost.

So far the Schick Intuition Plus Razor is my Summer pick for smooth, silky legs. Loves it!

Schick has these available in three limited edition handle designs, so if you’re anything like me you’ll want to pick one up for the handle alone. Yes, the little things in life make a Muse happy such as a pink handle for one thing!

Beauty Credit Lovely Auto Gloss Review

I’m a pretty big fan of Beauty Credit because it’s so inexpensive and has such a wide variety of fun items from makeup to skincare and beyond. You’ve probably already ready many of my past reviews on the brand and perhaps you’re even a fan yourself of the line.

Although I’ve always had great success with many of the items I’ve tried from Beauty Credit one item I was slightly disappointed with.

Beauty+Credit+Lovely+Auto+Gloss+005

Allow me to tell you about it, click for it.

The only item, thus far, that I’ve tried from Beauty Credit that I really didn’t love was the Beauty Credit Lovely Auto Gloss. Beauty Credit Lovely Auto Gloss has a whole lot going for it with it’s cute packaging, inexpensive price tag (4), variety of colors, and nice pigmentation but I’m not the biggest fan of the formula.

A cute click pen houses the gloss which is rather great packaging as I love this style gloss since it makes applying so easy. It also features the cute Beauty Credit rocking horse emblem. The sponge tip applicator is a bit on the smallish side but it applies the gloss pretty well regardless.

Auto Gloss has great pigmentation, enough so you don’t have to wear a stain or lipstick beneath however it’s the formula that I find terribly crummy. It’s not at all glossy or shiny and has a slightly silicon feel which ends up making it feel more like a lip color rather than a gloss. I didn’t find it moisturizing but more drying on my lips than anything else.

I suppose if you like a silicon-like gloss you may like this but I’m not a fan. I’ve run into a similar problem with many Maquillage glosses as well.

Beauty Credit remains a fond favorite of mine for price and selection but Auto Gloss was a fail for me. No likey!

Beauty Credit has it’s own website and certain vendors around the world carry the line including ones in New York City if you’re interested in exploring the line further.

Anyone a fan of Beauty Credit?
