Koda Kumi is a Goner!

?action=view&current=wwwbmpwwwI was wandering around the Visee website this morning and it’s pretty much official that Kodi Kumi is a goner from the champaign.

The new site is updated with a face chart when you click “What’s New?”

Here’s what you used to get when clicking “What’s New?” As you can see Kodi Kumi has been replaced with a cutesy face chart!

I believe the site went live again about a week or two ago and the images have been revamped to exclude Kodi Kumi from the ads. I’m not sure if she’s completely gone or this is temporary while the fire cools. I’m betting she’s gone completely and the Summer Collection will feature a new spokesperson! But we shall see! I’ll miss her actually as she has that edge that really brought Visee alive for me and I’m curious who they’ll replace her with!

Below is the new Make-Up theme, again Kodi Kumi has been replaced by the cute face chart image!

Benefit The Fast and the Flawless Kit

Benefit’s released a Sephora exclusive kit that includes it’s popular oil free foundation Some Kind of Gorgeous along with some other interesting bits and pieces.

The kit also includes Eye Bright, Get Bent Lash Mascara, Benetint, a Mousepad, a carrying case.

P205310 hero

The kit is $48 USD and available from Sephora now.

I’m personally not partaking of this particular kit but for you Benefit lovers this might be something you want to snatch up!

I’ve always been curious about Some Kind of Gorgeous but each time I test it on the back of my hand in the store it just feels so wrong and the color is so beige and unflattering!!

Love this?

Want it?

Tell the Muse!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday girls (and guys)!

Sadly, no new updates for the Muse today. I have about 5 good entries to post but sadly Blogger is still in weekend mode and refuses to work for me.

Dunno what’s going on but I’m unable to upload pictures. It’s definately not a problem on my side but nothing on the maintenance page from Blogger either. Sigh.

How very irritating!

I’ve tried in several browses including Safari and no joy! So sadly, updates have to wait a while until this is fixed up!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I needed to get my mind off a few things so I really kept myself busy this weekend! I ended up going to two movies with friends, shopping with some friends, brunch with some friends I haven’t seen in a while, helped my mum get her Easter dinner shopping done, went to visit my cousin, did Spring closet and makeup cleaning, went to a poetry reading, went to a book signing, and a bunch of other stuff. All this excluding sleep lol! I’m kidding icon wink

How about you?

What did you do this weekend?

It was major cold here. Strong winds about 26 degrees out! Brrrr! But it felt good walking along in a warm jacket and gloves. Sometimes it just feels nice to be out in the cold weather!

Anyway!

Updates to come as soon as Blogger decides to cooperate! This little problem should get my arse in gear to get my own website up and rolling and do away with Blogger completely!

Back to work with my lazy self!

Cheers!

PS Good news. I was able to locate the Horizon Blush in Pink! w00t! I’ll be reviewing it shortly icon wink

Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher Review

I was browsing around the Laneige site a few weeks ago and I came across the The Secret of the Snow Crystal Snow Radiant Blushers. Sounds like an epic motion picture! Now playing The Secret of the Snow Crystal starring Bai Ling!

I’m not entirely sure if these were from the Holiday Collection or not and after much discussion and debate with a friend we decided that maybe they were something available from the Korean side of Laneige only!

Anyway!

I ended up getting the entire three that were released because they simply reminded me of MAC Mineralized Skinfinish and I rock Mineralized Skinfinish so that meant I’d be sure to shower love all over these!

These were about the same cost as an MSF and honestly they have the potential for converting non MSF users. Some folk hate Mineralized Skinfinish because they are glittery and shimmery. A wide range of the colors released thus far have contained chunky bits of glitter and not everyone likes to hose themselves down with glitter the way the Muse does!

Those of you who may have ranted that MAC’s powders have some major shimmer will be delighted to know that these perform the way you probably hoped for from MAC. They highlight, create a soft glow on your face, and enhance your blush minus the shimmer and glitter.

The powder is soft and silky and easy to blend. The effect that these create is what I call a sort of photo finish glow. You can use these on natural bare skin or over your blush. I personally like to use them over my blush. You can also contour areas of your face for extra highlighting if you prefer.

I think they are quite a nifty powder to add to your beauty arsenal and a wonderful alternative if you’re not loving the amount of shimmer you get from a MAC Mineralized Skinfinish!

My Celebirty Look-A-Likes

I decided to do one of these “Celebrity Look-a-likes” after seeing them on a few other blogs! I’m scratching my head wondering how my celebrity look-a-like falls into the Beyonce and Eva Langoria range!

I thought for sure after putting my picture up it would compile and come up with images of Roseanne Bar, Rosie O’Donnell, and if I was lucky by some chance maybe they’d stick Mia Tyler in there!

But I somehow got lucky. I really couldn’t care less about Eva Langoria but hell I don’t mind being compared to Beyonce but above all else they went and released my inner Asian and I’m now on par with the likes of Aya Matsuura.

I feel like I’ve arrived. Aya Matsuura! Am I awesome or what!?

Now another one I’m properly chuffed with is Brigette Bardot. Wow…I’m a sex symbol now baby!

Upload your picture at My Heritage website and tell me who your Celebrity Look-a-Likes are!
