Musings of the Day: Trying It On For Size?

tag orange

You probably all know my answer to this one right?

So when you go to Sephora or your local counter do you test makeup out on yourself? On your lips? Cheeks?

As I said you probably know my answer, a big, fat NO! I refuse to put anything on my lips, cheeks, or face at counters or Sephora. If I want to test I swatch on my hand but I’m too anal to try any of it on my face. Be it at MAC, Dior, or Sephora I don’t care what counter or store I’m at, I simply won’t test any of it.

Yuk!

Tis my anal, germ-a-phobic nature but I’m not testing any of that stuff on my face!

How about you?

How do you test at counters?

Are you a swatcher or do you test on your face?

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo Review

If by some chance you’re looking to wash that man right out of your hair and everything else with it, that would mean it’s about time you tried out Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo.

Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+4

Hello, my name is the Muse and my hair has been silicon free for years now.

Ahhh the joy of living life with silicon free hair. It’s like having a good hair day every single day! Lush Shampoo and Conditioners are silicon free which means that hair is not weighted down with tons of yucky additives. Additives which give you bad hair days, frizzy hair, flat hair, oily hair and just general hair woe. Although on occasion my hair does crave a little silicon I try to use silicon based products in moderation.

The moral of my story is if your hair is not feeling it’s cleanest and you’re wanting to detox, I’m highly suggesting you grab yourself a big bottle of Lush Antiphilitron and call it a day. You’ll be happy you did!

What is it?

Think of Antiphilitron as a bottle of detox for your locks. It rinses your hair clean of oil, buildup, silicons, and more! What it leaves behind is pure joy! Your hair will feel lighter with a single use, more manageable with less frizz (if you suffer from frizz that is). If you have oily hair you’ll be all the more excited as this works amazingly well on oily scalps to create pure hair bliss! The formula is lemon based which makes hair shiny as well!

Now my hair is a bit on the dry side so I use this once or twice a week to detox my tresses. I use Lush King of Mods and although it doesn’t build up in my hair it does leave my hair feeling a bit oily plus during the week I’ll occasionally reach for my Skindazzles custom conditioner which is loaded with silicons. To rinse all this out I simply use Antiphilitron once or twice a week for a glowing head of hair! Loves it!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo wasn’t available for a really long time as it was discontinued but it was brought back recently with Retro Lush! Who knows how long it’ll last but I sure hope they keep it around for a while as it’s simply awesome!

Who might love it?

  • Anyone with oily hair!
  • Those who want squeaky clean hair.
  • Anyone who’s hair is loaded down with build up from product use such as gel, hairspray, silicon shampoo, and conditioner.
  • Anyone who wants picture perfect hair everyday single day!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo is simply amazing stuff and comes with my highest Muse Approval for purchase! I heart this stuff in a big way! Pick it up! It’s a must have!

Nordstrom Exclusive MAC Graphic Garden

MAC+Graphic+Garden

According to the Muse’s mate over at Krasey Beautiful this year’s MAC Nordstrom Exclusive Collection will be called Graphic Garden!

Oooo! Ahhh! Awww! Whoa! Yay! Sounds good to me.

They will be releasing the standard goodies like eyeshadow palettes, makeup bags, brushes, etc….but what really caught my interested was the MAC Look Book which will include mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, etc…in a little box! Cool! Likey!

I can’t wait to see MAC Graphic Garden for myself!

Sound exciting to you?

Keep your mind occupied until we can get our hands on it by visiting with last year’s Nordstrom Exclusive MAC Color Forms! Or go even further back and take a look at the Nordstrom Exclusive Novel Twist!

Which have been some of your favorite MAC Nordstrom Exclusive Collections?

Loves it!

When I seen Too Faced Pinch My Petals Blush I couldn’t help but notice how similiar the two were! Whoa! Tis like having Down Boy Blush in several shades…likey!

The blushes are $19.50 USD and available in three shade selections! Loves it!

The formula is paraben free and the blush is designed to brighten and freshen up your complexion…hmmm I’m loving it even more! I like the sweet little vintage flip compacts. Very cute. And the price tag isn’t too bad either. I think I might indulge in at least to give it a test try and if it’s good snag the others.

What do you think?

Wish list?

DuWop Cheek Venom & Doubleglow7 Luminous Balm Duo

duwop

I’m not a particularly big fan of DuWop Cheek Venom but when I seen this new Cheek Venom duo I was sorta intrigued.

Exclusive to QVC at the moment the DuWop Cheek Venom & Doubleglow7 Luminous Balm Duo is $24 USD and brings two of DuWop’s products togehter in one compact. You’ll get a highlighter for cheeks and face with DuWop Doubleglow and a Cheek Venom cream blush to give cheeks a pop of color!

It’s rather interesting to see both products packaged together. As I mentioned I’m not a huge fan of Cheek Venom but I’ve always been tempted to try Doubleglow and hey it’s packaged together so kinda a nice little treat!

Want it? Snag it at QVC by typing in item number A90925

Now if they’d only release something like the DuWop Crush Trio! That was good stuff! Please DuWop let’s have another of those this year?
