Dior Extreme Fix Powder

in Dior

What if I told you that for $44 USD you could have a silky, transparent powder that you’d brush on your face to make your foundation last all day long.

Would you buy it?

I’ve personally never run across a powder that allows my foundation to last more then say mmm 5 hours or so.

Of course I should mention that I don’t wear a full foundation face. Lucky enough I don’t need full coverage so my basic routine consists of T-Zone application. I use cream foundation so a swipe of foundation down either slide of my nose, on the corners of my chin, and across my upper lip (due to shadows on my skin found on my upper lip line and chin area) is all I need to look very fresh.

I set my foundation with either loose powder or MAC’s Mineralized Skinfinish. Done. Not much to my routine.

However, I do notice I need a fresh up within 2-3 hours and by the time hour 5 strikes I’d say my foundation is pretty much gone along with my blush, lipstick, etc…

Behold my new solution for bullet proofing my foundation:

Meet Dior’s Extreme Fix Powder. I seen this little gem a few months ago on Nordies website and honestly it held little appeal as its promise of making my foundation long lasting seemed empty and meaningless! I’ve tried powders before how could this be different!?

Recently I came across this on one of my readers blogs and her review created an intense lemming for the powder. I soon found myself feverishly googling for more reviews on the product. I came across the powder on MUA with a rating of 5.0! Bloody hell I’ve never seen much of anything get 5.0!

Every review I’ve run across is a rave about how well this simple, clear powder creates an amazing shield against the elements and your face so your foundation lasts all freaking day long!

$44 USD is not much to spend if this means my makeup will last all day!

The moral of the story is Dior Extreme Fix Powder is on my hit list and I’ll be reviewing it shortly!

Believe you me if it works it’ll get a double Muse Approved Stickering!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

star+trek+quotable+capt+women

So it’s Valentine’s Day isn’t it?

Minor depression as my boyfriend lives in the UK but we did spend a rather awesome evening talking, being goofy, etc…!

I kinda sorta think V-Day is somewhat a bit too commercial for my likes. I don’t think I need a particular day of the year to tell someone I love them! Heck I do that everyday anyway icon wink

But I did want to take a sec to say Happy Valentine’s Day to each of you and your loved ones! It’s not all about lovers! My parents get me a V-Day pressie every year and I give them one! Same for my sis! icon wink And some special friends too!

So even if you’re single you can make it about someone else that holds a near and dear place in your heart.

Single, Married, or In a Relationship the Muse wishes you only the happiest feelings in the world on Valentine’s Day!

If I could I’d give each and every one of you a big squishy hug and some hershey kisses too (because fat content is important on Valentine’s Day!)!

I hope your day is special whatever you do!

And hey what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day then with great pick up lines from the Captain right?

You’ve been officially Shatnerized with this post! And yes the Muse believes even back then it was a hair piece! For shame William, for shame!

Dear oh Dear Spock you cheeky little monkey! Naughty! Naughty!

I flipped over these during Christmas and none were to be found in the land! However, lucky enough I did end up with a pair!

The good news is they are now up and available on Bath and Body Works Website again!

But I have better news!

BEHOLD:

Do you love these? Admit you want them! $10 bucks! It’s the Lambie Slipper Sock! Ahhh! *runs around in circles*

I want these so badly!

I went to my local BBW when I stopped off for Fafi last night and of course they had them but someone smeared freaking lipgloss on ‘em! I asked if they had another pair and of course I got a killer attitude and a big, fat “whatever is on the shelf Mizzzzzzzzzzz!” Thanks for nothing!

The good news is they are available online!

The Muse likey and wants two pairs please!

And you know you’ll be running to get ‘em too! Who can resist the lambs!?

Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Oh.
My.
God.

The Muse is in geeky heaven watching the preview for the new Indiana Jones movie! I nearly wet my pants, nearly, very nearly.

Although if possible there may be just a bit too much CGI for me. I know, I know but we’re talking old school Indy here…a little less CGI would give it that vintage feel!

By the very way Mr Spielberg maybe just maybe we could have done without Shai Lebeouf. Bloody hell I had to deal with him in Transformers and that was like root canal surgery now Indiana Jones?

You’re ruining my geeky childhood here (and geeky adulthood)….! Sinseriously…I did not need Shai Lebeouf mucking up my Transformer experience!

Anyways.

Aside from those minor rants…this has the potential to be awesome. Cross your fingers we don’t have a lemon on our hands here a la Lucas’s money grubbying Episode 1, Episode 2, etc…….that had dollar signs written all over it!
