Etude House I Can’t Help Smiling

Etude House has updated it’s main portal (Korean site) with a brand new collection entitled I Can’t Help Smiling!

The collection seems to be centered around a brand new perfume of the same name. Although I’m not particularly interested in the fragrance (I find most of Etude House’s fragrances smell somewhat old ladyish!) I am quite excited about getting my hands on the new makeup items and cleansing oils introduced with the Etude House I Can’t Help Smiling collection!

The collection includes a highlighting bead set with cute fluffy puff in the same vein as Guerlain Meteorites but with a Benefit Highlighter packaging style! Cute! Also available is a lipgloss mini trio and what appears to be a quad gift set of lip balms!

And finally a few new cleansing oils entitled Etude House Cleansing Dream and also a few cream cleansers I believe.

I wouldn’t call this a holiday collection per say but it does look like a rather nice line up of goodies from Etude House. Sadly, I have no prices as of yet since the Etude House shop is not yet showing the products nor am I able to get a hold of the new makeup video for these goodies as the site is boggled down as usual! Rant! I’m going to try to get my hands on these items so I can appease my appetite for new Etude House goodies and bring you the deets on whether you need ‘em!

Loving this collection?

Want it all?

Not so much!

Religious Cosmetic Musings: Looking Good For Jesus

Religious Musings ahead with some comic relief……you’ve been warned!

The Muse likes to think she’s an agnostic kinda girl although on occasion she’s been known to lean towards the atheist side of the field. Now her parents did their best and sent the Muse to Catholic elementary school and an all girl’s Catholic High School but here be the Muse a few hundred years later and her beliefs are quite drastically changed from when she was a mere girl.

The Muse has decided that the best way to bring Jebus into her life was to do so with bubble bath, moisturizer, and lip balm. I mean this is surely how a Muse would gain faith right? So she set on her quest to find Jebus by taking the leap of faith into cosmetic country. Sadly, she found out that not many cosmetic brands care about the all mighty God just about the all mighty dollar!

Damn.

But…now…recently…she was enlightened by the latest brand from Blue Q entitled “Looking Good for Jesus”! This was it! This would surely be my way to the Lord!

My god look at that slogan! “Look your Sunday Best! Guaranteed to help you be worthy and get noticed by the King of Kings!” This is possibly so morally and maybe politically incorrect I can’t help but piss myself laughing!

Now to get tight with Christ you can indulge in bubble bath, lip balms, and many other fabulous and heavenly items!

Find the Lord in your bathtub!

A Sparkling Hand Cream! I just knew that Jebus would love the sparkles!
125838319 m

Jebus Lip Balm! It says that this will be return my lips to near virgin quality! Bless Be!
125837681 m

Now to get the full effects of this amazing brand the Muse does recommend checking it out for yourself by clicking here!

The Muse has meditated (and prayed) on the topic and she’s decided that these items could surely change the face of Jesus, the church, and religion as we know it! If you hit the cosmetic junkies with the Lord surely the good news of Christ will spread far and wide.

Indeed…Jesus needs to consider tapping this industry!

If you’re wanting to get jiggy with Jesus do check out the Blue Q website for further details as I’m positive you’ll at the very least want the lip balm! Lord knows where your lips have been right? Best get them back to virgin-like quality fast!

Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Gloss in Disco Pink Review, Swatches, & FOTD

You know Bobbi Brown Glitter Balm failed to excite this Muse but she has absolutely no such feelings about Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Gloss!

Likey!!!!!

This morning I whipped out my brand new Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Gloss in Disco Pink and started to boogie down baby!

I’m trying so hard to resist the 20% Off discount and not get the other shades of this gloss as I loves it lots. Where as the balm had a crummy texture this succeeded in having a fab emollient formula that was slick, glossy, and shimmery! Yay! It also happens to have wonderful pigmentation and I have no need to use a lipstick or stain prior to use! Slick on and beautiful glossy lips!

Although many of us hate dipping our fingers into pots and such, the Muse’s number one pet peeve there, I try to set aside my dislike and concentrate on the good things that the packaging has to offer like the fact it has a rather awesome dual cover. The compact sports a regular lid and a secondary clear lid to protect the gloss from ending up all over the upper lid, whoa did that make sense? Anyway, I’m sure you got it! Pretty cool right?

Picture+153

The shade I tried out is Disco Pink which by the very way has nothing pink going on with it…holy strange name Batman! But the good news is that I absolutely love the shade as it’s a beautiful brown based peach shade that looks stunning with warm corals, golds, and bronze looks! As I mentioned earlier the formula is quite emollient so the gloss gives your lips a nice slick look with a hint of fine gold shimmer that lends a festive feel to the gloss as it should considering it’s part of the Bobbi Brown Party Collection.

Givenchy Mister Bright Review & Swatches

The Muse thinks that sometimes the saying “as you get older you get better” isn’t always necessarily true.

For example the Muse thinks that as Bruce Campbell gets older he fails to get better in a major way! Now if I was Bruce I’d have left the industry when I was still the cult horror God of The Evil Dead Series….but ado…a 100 lbs later and Bruce feels the need to continue trying to recapture his youth by appearing in bad budget films that never quite get it right.

Now the Muse can go on and on about epic fails in the movie industry but she won’t bore you with the details. The moral of this story is the Muse knows that she doesn’t always get better as she gets older and sometimes she needs a little bit of help making herself better.

In this case the Muse needs a tiny bit of help with her under eye woes…a bit of brightening, a little lightening up….in this case she whips out her trusty Givenchy Mister Bright Touch of Light Pen! A click and a swipe and my eyes are looking more awake, well rested, and bright eyed and busy tailed!

Now Mister Bright has a great knack for being a multitasking demon! He works as a great highlighter on cheeks, sides of nose, or anywhere you want to add a bit of light! He highlights and contours your face beautifully with a pink pearl luminance! He can also be used to highlight your brow bone or a dab or two on your lids and on the inner and outer corner of the eyes to create the illusion of 8 hours of sleep when you only had 4!

Mister Bright comes packaged in a click pen! Dontcha just love click pens? The Muse does! One click should be plenty of product to do your entire face as you’re not going to want to use a heap of this since it does contain a healthy amount of shimmer. The formula is a thick pink cream which blends effortlessly. If you’ve ever tried Benefit Eye Bright Pencil this is virtually the same concept but in a liquid form plus it works much better! You can use Mister Bright under your eyes as well but do be careful! Only a dab for under the eyes as you’re not wanting to get insane shimmer overload by dabbing a whole lot. Remember, Mister Bright isn’t a concealer but a highlighter so use him to brighten up your dull complexion and wake up your tired eyes but don’t expect him to conceal major problems! If you’re wanting to get the most out of the product you can also use it as an all over color wash on your lid and eye area as a cream eyeshadow! The effect is a illuminating pearl pink wash of color that lights up the eyes and gives an angelic look to the face!

The Muse likes Givenchy Mister Bright so much she’s Muse Approving it for purchase! At $31.50 USD he doesn’t break the bank either considering a little goes a long way plus anything that helps me get better as I get older is always in fashion with the Muse! The Muse sure does think Givenchy Mister Bright Touch of Light Pen does the trick at creating the illusion of perfection.
