Mmmmm mmmm mmmm good! KATE’s website has been updated with the brand new KATE Gel Eyeshadows and the Muse couldn’t be happier!
KATE is a Japanese brand that is exclusive to Japan however if you take a look at my buying guide you can locate a few shops online that sell KATE.
The brand new gel eyeshadows are calling my name I’ll be indulging in quite a few of the shades plus the price is right at 8,50 yen. At that price I think it’s safe to say that these should be about the size of KATE’s Gel Eyeliner which is about half the size of a MAC Fluidline.
These shadows are quite similiar to gel liners released this past Spring as they look like they have a metallic finish with quite a good bit of shimmer but we shall see soon enough!

I have my eye on the pink, purple, gold, and white. If hey end up being good, as I think they will be, I’ll grab the other colors as well!
Have you seen ‘em?

During my last UK Lush Order I failed to order Lush B Electro Soap which is Lush’s newest soap that’s available for a limited time, thank god for that.
I’m not the biggest fan of B Electro considering that it reminds me of another soap Lush used to make entitled Happy….I believe it was Happy don’t quote me on that though (many Lush soaps have come and gone through the Muse’s life and she can’t remember them all, especially if they sucked!).
It lathers really well however doesn’t offer any moisturizing as most Lush soaps do. I think about the only good thing about it, is it’s cool neon color and the neon suds it creates in my shower! I feel like I need a dark light so I can take a shower while my body is partially submerged in bits of neon green suds! During this time I could also play bad 80’s Cyndi Lauper songs and bop around the shower stall singing about how girls just want to have fun (stranger things have been known to happen in the Muse’s shower!).
I normally dislike shopping for Lush in store considering people put their grubby, sweaty hands on everything in the store which is about the time the Muse has a total freak attack over the germs…oh god the germs…..Ahhhh! Lord knows some of these people may have picked their nose prior to picking up that bath bomb!
You can relate if A. You’ve shopped at Lush before or B. Don’t dig strangers touching soap and other items that you’ll be using on your body or face!
I got sucked into the pull of buying a chunk of B Electro when an SA calmly explained to me that the entire slab was brand new and just put out, she promised, swore on her dear old dead grandmere, and on her unborn child that it indeed was new. I quickly took her word for it and decided ok I’ll buy a slice since I’m here already! Later on my friend Jamie reminded me that several people were in the store during this time and could have possibly touched it before I entered shop…thanks Jamie…Love you.
I quickly realized when I got it home that this wasn’t for me. Although it’s a nice enough soap and suds up beautiful and of course as I mentioned it’s freaking neon green (that along should make us all wet our pants in excitement!), this is sadly all it has going for it. I sniffed it casually when in the store but when I did finally get around to using it I just wasn’t digging the scent.
Sheesh I hate giving Lush a poor review. I love Lush but this just didn’t do it for me! I had hoped and wished for a bright, citrus scent and B Electro does have have a nice fruity, citrus smell but it also has an underlay of fennel and rose which pulls through way more prominently then it’s base of grapefruit. I don’t mind the rose but bringing together rose, fennel, grapefruit and jasmine and you pretty much have disaster in a bar of soap!
Sadly, B Electroc failed to do much for me and my $10 piece quickly made it’s way into the nearest trash can however I keep hope alive that one day Lush will create another masterpiece of a citrus soap like Sexy Peel and all will be right again with the world! Until that time no more exciting neon green shower experiences here!

Ahhh water. Our body loves it and our skin needs it plus it’s cheap as day old chips! Skincare nirvana comes in a simple bottle or a flick of your wrist to turn on your faucet!
Did you know as babies we are made up of 75-80% water? As we grow older that decreases from 50-60% and as for our brain it’s made up of 85% water and our skin and bones 10-15%!
Helluva cheeky smart girl aren’t I?
When I seen Tricia Sawyer Skin Balancing Water Primer but of course the very first thing that popped out at me was WATER! I always look for water content in my primers considering how much I hate silicon based primers so anything that remotely resembles a moisturizing primer experience will end up in my greedy little hands instantly!
Tricia Sawyer Skin Balancing Water Primer contains silicon but it also has a unique cooling formula that’s water based which releases extra moisture when applied. The Muse likey! The primer is oil-free and glides gently onto the skin leaving behind a cooling, moist, dewy surface to prep your skin for foundation.
Although this didn’t do much to make my foundation last longer it did provide a flawless canvas for my coverage and made it easy to work with since it created a balanced, moist surface for my foundation. I think it successfully gave my skin a normal feel for a few hours of wear which was both shocking and delightful. Since my skin is combination at the moment, ranging from oily to dry in different locations of my face it was shocking to smooth some of this on, proceed to apply my makeup, and have my skin act normally for 8 hours. Obviously as per it’s name it does balance the skin.
The texture is extremely interesting as it does have a slight silicon feel but it does have a water base so it manages to feel very moist. I find silicon primers uncomfortable to wear and notice they pill on my face however the water base in this allows it to glide on perfectly well, absorb quickly, while feeling light and airy on. It creates a super moist feeling and in turn this provides ease of application for my foundation.
The primer comes in a really great pump style bottle that distributes just the right amount of primer with the first press.
All in all I really enjoyed this one and recommend going to try it out at your local Sephora. The texture and formula is truly dreamy plus eases application and creates a flawless finish to my skin for my makeup. I love the extra amount of moisturizer it provided and the way it eased my irritating combination skin was a huge plus!
This one looks like it’s shaping out to be a keeper!
You can nab yours at www.triciasawyer.com or visit Sephora to try it out before you buy it!
The Muse likey! I see it becoming a fast favorite and possible a staple product in my morning makeup routine!
