Benefit Throb

I’m so jumping on this Bandwagon! Yes, indeed!

untitledeeeeeeeeeee

I’ve been burned before (Click Here to read about my woes with Benefit) but I just have a good feeling about Benefit’s newest face powder called Throb! It looks downright perfect to me! Read about my love affair with Dandelion by clicking here and you’ll soon realize how Throb might very well be on it’s way to my favorite list!

I just ordered mine from Sephora (hey I had a Sephora Gift Card burning a hole in my pocket! Might as well indulge right?!)!

Expect to see my raving review for Benefit Throb soon! I just know I’m going to love this!

Kylie Minogue Boards the Tardis and Ages a Few Years

For the past few years geeks within the US mourn the fact that Brits get a very special Christmas treat on the 25th.

No idea what they get on Christmas Day? That means you aren’t as dorky as the Muse is either that or you’re saying EASTENDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No it’s not Eastenders. *insert rolling eyes here*

They get a special Christmas episode of Doctor Who on the 25th of December. Damn lucky people. One more reason why the English should rule the Universe.

Since Billie Piper’s sad, sad exit (I’m still crying! I’m actually mourning for the loss of Camille Coduri aka Jackie Tyler more than anything else to be honest! I still say she’d have made a brilliant assistant in all her annoying glory!) from the show we’ve been treated to quite an array of woman traipsing through the Tardis as of late…hell even Catherine Tate and dare I say….Jennifer Saunders (Not as an assistant either my friends! I say no more for fear of ruining the surprise should it happen!).

Well, assistants come and go but the quirk of the Doctor always remains the same thankfully.

And why am I babbling about the good Doctor you might ask?

Yes let’s get to that shall we!

The Muse has scoured the undernet in hopes of locating the Christmas episode (The word on the street is Peter has recorded it for me! You remember Peter don’t you? If you’ve been with the Muse from the start you’ll know who I mean! If not click here and while you’re at it do a search for Peter and you should find a bit of info to appease!)

Well, sadly I haven’t really bothered looking hard enough but the moral of the story is that it’s quite possible that Jared Blandino may have gotten to the very cute Kylie Minogue (I’ve been told he has a special flare for aging the young!).

What.
in the.
World.

I seen the promo images for Voyage of the Damned and I must say they aren’t Kylie’s most flattering! I personally think she’s bloody gorgeous and looking quite suave for her age but whoever did her makeup and hair for the Who episode deserves to be shot down!

Granted the year is 1912, is that the year they said it was good to wash your hair with salad dressing? I can’t recall.

Seriously, her hair is a bird’s nest, rat’s nest, frizz a whizz special or whatever else you choose to call it! She quite looks like she has a wig on (and maybe does! I hope!).

Her makeup is quite ok but it appears they may have run out of concealer for both her and David!

In all seriousness I worship at the feet of David’s alter but god knows he looks much better with a pound of concealer on! I didn’t think anyone could take Tom Baker’s place in my heart as the Doctor but damn if David didn’t. But the sad, sad fact is David is quite pale and freckle laden. Which isn’t a bad thing but I’m so used to seeing the man with a ton of concealer on it’s sometimes shocking to be confronted with his real skin!

And Kylie my god the wrinkles and crow feet are scaring me. Someone hold me.

Did they run out of cash for this episode and couldn’t afford proper make-up artists? And the hair..my god the hair….

Ok so we should take into consideration that this is Doctor Who which means tons of running around after some aliens or creatures and Kylie’s hair probably suffered the consequences during all that action but I will say that Billie Piper never had a bad hair day so why should Kylie?!?!??!

David with his concealer firmly in place!

Kylie needs some help here! The hair, my god the hair! Forget the face for now woman! Do something with her hair! King of Mods maybe?!

David looking very scary minus his concealer and Kylie looking equally awful! Maybe the airbrush on photoshop was brokes!

David minus his concealer again! If I was him I’d sue BBC for posting these on the Internetz for all his adoring fans to see!

Kylie looking very…um….unKylie-like!

David looks ok thankfully but Kylie has had a better day here!

Do click to enlarge some of these because they are seriously scary! Particularly this last one!

Kylie don’t quit your day job love! Thank god Who was a one offer because lord knows it aged you at least 10 years darling!

I apologize in advance for my cruelty but these images just shocked me straight out of my shoes! However, I will say that my schedule is clear if BBC is seeking a new assistant as the Doctor most certainly needs a Muse in the Tardis even if it ages me a a couple of years! I don’t mind, honest, swear, truly! I can live without concealer!

Kylie on a good day:

P.S. Lord knows I’ve dropped to my knees in thanks that John Barrowman didn’t decide to show up for this episode! Can you imagine what they’d do to him? I shiver in fear thinking about it!

Happy Holidays Lovely Readers!

Eat, Drink, Be Merry but remember what John Lennon asked us in 1971, “So This is Christmas and what have you done?”

FUZE Slenderize Guilt Free Lip Gloss

As Seen on Sephora:

This resolution is hardly original. But when beauty is involved, we’ll jump on any bandwagon. Too Faced’s new gloss packs wondrous ingredients that promote appetite-normalization. Swipe it on your lips to help kiss those unwanted pounds goodbye.

P202628 hero

You read it here first folks. A gloss that’s going to help me lose weight. I’ll take a case. Wait. Better make that 10 cases! Thanks!

I always thought my appetite was pretty normal but this gloss is actually going to normalize it for me! I dunno what that means but it sure does sound super important. It’s also going to melt away any unwanted cellulite on my hips that I may want to rid myself of plus it’s also going to arrange for World Peace.

Can your gloss do that? What? I can’t make this stuff up people. It’s for reals!

The stupidity of the beauty world never ceases to amaze and delight me this is almost as good as the “breath fresher” lipgloss that was released last year!

I love me some gloss but count the Muse doubtful that a gloss is going to make me skinny!

I’ll eat my words later if this actually works or maybe not as I’ll be too full since my gloss is normalizing my appetite for me!

MAC The Originals Con Gratis

I faced the demons, the mad rush, and the evil Christmas shoppers and even Joe Torre (Seriously. He was sitting on one of the benches by the water fountain in the mall! To be honest I’d never have known it was him if my friend hadn’t said “HOLY SH*T It’s JOE TORRE!” Hey, a man’s gotta shop right? Even if he’s a New York Yankee!) to head to the MAC counter and explore the wonders and delights that is The Originals Collection.

And I’m here to say…………………..

It’s just as boring as I originally blogged about. Click here to read my first impression of this collection.

So…

I went, I saw, and I conquered.

The good news is I did get some of The Originals Collection because my darling, sweet, lovely, gorgeous MA gifted me with her “gratis” bag of The Originals. I didn’t purchase a single item while I was there but she just handed me her entire bag. I was gobsmacked at her generosity. To be utterly honest I went to the counter for two reasons: 1. To purchase Parrot and 2. To give my MA some truffles I had purchased for her for Christmas.

I ended up not buying anything as she came tearing out as soon as she seen me with the bag full of The Originals.

The really good news is I did fall in love with two of the items in the bag which was the Antique Gold and Blackened Red glitters! The rest was not so great (I feel so incredibly guilty for saying that as I’m eternally grateful for what a sweetie she is to me all the time).

Beautiful! My favorite in the lot! Blackened Red and Antique Gold Glitters
Picture+389

Here’s the items that she gifted to me:

I’m not sure how I’m going to make some of this work because some the colors are just not me. To be honest a majority of The Originals Collection just wasn’t Muse friendly! But I am very happy to have some of it to play with!

In the bag was Parrot which I’m properly chuffed to have a 3rd pot of because as I explained 2 pots of Parrot weren’t enough to get me through my lifetime!

Here’s the rundown:

Eyeshadows
Parrot-Gorgeous! Need I say more?
Charred-Quite a nice color for a smokey eye! I can definately make use of this guy!
Daisychain-Kinda blah. I actually though this would be much better in person but sadly it’s just a really meh shade of pale yellow! Good for a highbrow highlighter I guess!
Clue-I don’t even have a name for this! It’s sorta a brownish gray! Not so fab at all! This will be difficult to work with!

Lipglass
Full on Lust-Not so great. It’s a rather boring matte muddy rose color!

Lipstick
Chinz on Chinz-A soft chocolate color that I’m liking! I could make this work I think!
Nouveau Fro-A really awful beige mod color! I’m going to need to do some serious thinking on how to fit this into a look!

Glitters
Antique Gold Beautiful! Wouldn’t have purchased myself but happy to have this!
Blackened Red Lovely! Was definately on my “maybe” list and I’m happy to have a jar!

Overall, this is kinda fun as there aren’t many colors in the bag I’d have chosen for myself so now I’ll have a fun challenge trying to fit these into looks for myself!

The Originals Collection isn’t exactly what I hoped for but since I got some of it free I can’t complain too much icon wink

A big thanks to my MA for spoiling me something awful!
