Happy Holidays from the Muse!

2102071498 2e3d87c48d


Christmas sure did get away from me this year! I can’t believe it’s here already. I blinked and it arrived. I guess as we get older it tends to creep up rather quickly where as when we were kids it took years to arrive.

We’ve been through alot together haven’t we? It’s almost two year’s since I started this little blog and to this day I’m amazed that anyone even bothers coming over to visit and read my insane little babblings.

Thanks.

Thanks for reminding me that I’m actually not talking to myself most days but a rather large bunch of readers…actually not so much readers but more along the lines of friends.

From my Tardis…errr…sorry from my home to yours have a very, very Happy Holiday Season filled with joy, friends, family, warmth, and love.

The Muse wishes you the very best for a wonderful holiday to you and yours!

Cheers!

Stila Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio Review

It’s not too late! There’s still time left to head to Sephora and snatch up a few good gifts for friends and family!

Considering that New Year’s is next week you might want to indulge in Stila Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio which contains three smudge pots for $32 USD. At around $10 USD per a pot the Muse is liking this good deal for an elegantly lined eye look for New Year’s Eve (and day) parties and gatherings!

Stila’s Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio contains three gel eyeliners in black, bronze, and gray. Although most makeup addicts claim MAC Fluidline is the go to product for liner the Muse begs to differ. She finds that fluidline applies streaky and she hates having to go back and re-line as it creates more of a mess! The formula of Stila Smudge Pots applies precisely, easily, and mess free the first time, every time, no re-lining required. As per their name they smudge beautifully well to create that perfect smoked out look plus they make a wonderful base for shadows if you choose.

I thought including three smudge pots in one kit was quite a nice value and I think it makes a rather cute little stocking stuffer or come on who can resist getting it for yourself right? You know you wants it!

Snag your set at Sephora or visit www.stilacosmetics.com

What are your fav potted liners?

Yes to Carrots Frosty Loves C Lip Butter Gift Set Review & Giveaway

The Muse think that stocking stuffers are the order of business today! Is it me or are stockings stuffed with cute little gifts are what Christmas is all about? I freaking heart uber cute items to tuck into family and friends stockings!

The Muse wants to fill your stocking with joy this year so check out her review and giveaway of Yes to Carrots Frosty Loves C Lip Butters below!

If you’re anything like the Muse your lips might be suffering at the moment with the crazy cold weather we are having! Yuk!0

If you’re look for a nice, natural, paraben-free lip treatment you might want to try out Yes to Carrots Lip Butter. These are pretty much the same concept as your normal run of the mill chapstick but the formula is vastly different. It deserves to be mentioned I’m not a big fan of chapstick because I hate the waxy feel. The good news is that these have a superior formula to chapstick. They are soft, moisturizing, and glide nicely onto the lips protecting them from the harsh winter weather and preventing them chapping, drying out, and cracking. Of course the key selling point being the natural good for you ingredients and the paraben-free formula.

Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules Review

Granted it’s not like she minds in the least to have hair comparable to Einstien but she’s come to the conclusion that old Albert could work this look where as the Muse on the other hand can not.

In my quest for all things cheap lately (you know we haz to be cheap with the economy and such) I discovered Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules aka weird little capsules that look like the latest street drug.

Although a majority of the time nothing touches my hair outside of Lush haircare and a few select e-tailer brand shampoos and conditioners I decided to shrug off my snotty little nature and try out Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules. Honestly, anything that promises to tame the frizz is always a welcome addition to my haircare regime. My hair is long, it’s wavy, it’s curly, and without proper care it does look quite like I stuck my hand into the nearest socket.

Picture+009Picture+006

Surprisingly these little capsules do exactly what they promise which is tame the evil frizz. The price is one of the key selling points as for $2.99 USD it’s quite a nice steal. You’ll get 18 capsules which you’ll either use one or two of or more if you’re really having a frizzy kinda day. I used one and my hair was nice and soft afterward, frizz-free, shiny, and didn’t feel weighted down. My main concern when using new haircare is how it’ll weight my hair down. My hair is currently silicon free thanks to Lush so I take extra care when using anything else as once I reintroduce silicons or other additives into my hair it starts to misbehave. I was pleasantly surprised that merely one capsule which contains 3, 4 drops of serum at the most banished my frizzes and made my hair nice and soft.

If you’re looking for something cheap that won’t weight your hair down and will zap your frizzes I highly suggest checking this out. Not a bad deal on the price plus it delivers on the promise of frizz-free hair! I’m on the bandwagon for a re-purchase once I run out!

Tried these?

in MAC

‘ello possums!

Get cheeky with the MAC Dame Edna Collection after the jump!

I must admit that the MAC Dame Edna Collection definitely holds way more of my interest and attention than the MAC Hello Kitty Collection. I’m simply in love with the lilac packaging! Although the trio color selections aren’t exactly what I’d have liked to see (too similar to shades released already) I can’t deny they are quite Dame Edna themed to say the least. I’m particularly thrilled with the lippies and glosses in this color story as they look quite lovely. The beauty powders as well have caught my eye although I have heard stories that they are chalky but I’m not minding in the least and if worst comes to worst I can always pop them up and replace with my own pressed powder so I can enjoy the lovely lilac packaging!

Love it?

Not so much?
