Read ahead to find out the deets!

I ran across Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara recently while I was at Walgreens and I must say it actually works quite well. Last Intense makes the standard round of promises such as fuller, thicker lashes but at $3.79 USD my dubious nature set in. Seriously, mascara that’s under $4 USD…..doesn’t the idea of the price tag alone scare the beegees out of you?

Turns out you can have thicker, longer, and fatter lashes for under $4 USD. Ha, who would guessed?

Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara sports the plastic applicator that’s taken the drugstore world by storm lately. Everywhere you look plastic applicators are popping up! What do you think of plastic applicators? I find in some cases that they work rather well but in others not so great. In this case the applicator is the key to creating beautifully long, thick lashes and works quite well. The applicator has no curve and is straight in style with longer bristles on one side and shorter on the other. The best way to apply the mascara is to use the longer bristles to brush a few coats of mascara on and use the shorter end to work product through your lashes while curling them upwards. It does a take a little bit of work to get the knack of using it without creating a mess but a few tries later and I had quite nice results.

Results are pretty amazing! My lashes were considerably thicker, longer, and full of volume. Likey! It wears well through the day without smudging, flaking, or smearing. The cute portable size and purple packaging appeals although it is a tiny bit cheap looking but hey the product works, that counts for something!

What’s not to like? If you’re on a budget and looking for a cheap mascara that gives longer, fuller lashes this is well worth a try! I didn’t LOVE it but I definitely liked it!

Anyone try out Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara?

Musings of the Day: Economy Beauty Woes

The Muse was wondering how is the current economy influencing your beauty purchases?

musings

Are you cutting back on your normal hauls? Saving more?

I’m very, very anal about setting budget goals for just about everything in my life. I plan cosmetic releases (and non cosmetic things) down to the last penny but occasionally I do go over budgets that I set for myself but it’s quite rare. I think present economic situation has definitely influenced my purchasing as I’m not so quick to jump on board purchasing every single shade of aqua eyeshadow put out. I’m a tad bit more conscious of asking myself do I really need this or do I have two dozen of the same thing at home? I’m also pretty tame with my MAC hauling late. I honestly don’t think this has too much to do with the economy so much as it has to do with scaling back some as sometimes I do realize that I have a bit TOO much stuff hanging around!

How about you?

Majorca Majolica Girly Erotica

Majolica Majorca Girly Erotica is up and active on the MJ website!

I LOVE the new story! The goth element plus the little spider made me giddy! I think it’s one of the simpler stories they have done on the site as there is nothing to “find” and everything is right there to click on, open, and view.

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+8

Nice!

I also noticed they now have a great option as soon as the first page loads which allows you to click a link and this opens the entire general catalog of items available. Great feature.

Love the goth element, love the spider, but the collection is meh at best! Pretty disappointed about the lack of items available but I’ll survive.

GWP? Cutes! Love me some spiders!

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus is the brand new mascara releasing for Spring which I will pick up for sure.

Also available are two new Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Glosses and finally Majolica Majorca Pressed Pore Cover Face Powder.

Spidey nails!

So you can obviously why I’m lacking excitement. I’ll be snatching up the mascara and I’m debating on the powder as I have several powders from MJ already and I’ll def skip the Honey Plump Glosses as I have at least six to get through already. Very disappointed at the lack of palettes or lack of virtually anything for the eyes aside from the mascara.

It’s really a bare minimal collection and I’m a tiny bit shocked they didn’t go further with it.

Economy do you think?

Hmmmm…the Muse is sad. I need a hug!

If you’re interested in reading the story you can check back to see if the Singapore site updates as that will be in English. At the moment the I am Gorgeous promo is still live so you’ll have to see in a few weeks if it changes.

Zirh The Warrior Collection Shower Gels

The Muse MIGHT be easily amused, it’s hard to say really with her sense of humor but she did so find it slightly funny that Zirh has a Warrior Collection of Shower Gels available at the moment for men.

zzz

If your man’s ego isn’t bloated enough you can now buy him Warrior Shower Gel that will make him feel like Alexander the Great, Ulysses, and dare I save even Julius freaking Caesar.

Feed his ego with these fine shower gels from Zirh and I’m postive he’ll be charging into your bedroom with a toga wrapped around his body yelling “All Hail Caesar!”

How oddly exciting….

zzz
