Naughty Nauticals & DazzzleGlass FOTD: Mutiny Meets Love Alert

Not sure I completely love this as the blending came out awful since Mutiny isn’t finely milled but I had fun with it and I guess that’s what counts!

Fake Jill Stuart Palettes

Unbelievable. I just read about this on Risser’s blog and I was absolutely gobsmacked. It appears that a few fake Jill Stuart Palettes have popped up on a yahoo auction. The seller appears to be in Hong Kong.

Amazing how alike these look right? Even down to the plastic cover sheet! Wow. Just wow. It was pointed out that the only thing missing from the fakes is the Jill Stuart logo on the bottom right hand corner of the open palette! If you see my photo and compare it to the fakes you’ll notice the logo is missing! Interesting.

I’m absolutely astounded.

Can you believe this?

I can’t help but look at the palettes and think how great the color combos are though hehe! I’m awful aren’t I?

Honestly, the boxes and compact looks freaking awesome for a fake don’t they!?

You can read some rants about this seller by clicking here.

But seriously this is just fascinating. The things people do!

So beware kiddies when bidding on auctions from another country! I bid on abroad auctions all the time so this might be an eye opener for me!

Thanks to Risser for keeping us in the know! Risser explains in her post that it’s common for MAC and Bobbi Brown to pop up with counterfeit items but it’s not everyday you see Jill Stuart being duped like this!

This is rather sad for people who are new to the brand, not knowing the color selection and buying these blindfolded and being screwed over! Very sad!

I know, I know. You’re probably tired of my babblings about Pop lately but I can’t help myself they have come out with some truly awesome items lately.

What started out as a few palettes for the eyes has turned into an entire line up of fantastic palette after palette after palette releases that are such a steal!

The newest palette entitled Smokey Rose combines not only a ton of eyeshadows but also gloss and blush this time around! Sweet!

The Muse likey a palette with tons of goodies that covers my entire face! The convenience of a do it all palette thrills me to absolute pieces!

So, What’s the scoop? What do I get?

Let me tell you……..

You get 12 Eyeshadows, 4 Cheek Colors, 2 Lip Colors, and One Dual Ended Brush for $42 USD! That, my dear girls, is a steal in my humblest.

You’d pay close to $35 USD anyway for six shadows or so in a palette! This gives you eyeshadows plus cheek colors plus lip colors plus a brush..what more could you possibly want?!

If you’re on a bit of a budget this is a great palette as it offers so much variety for a small cost. If you’re a no nonsense type of girl that doesn’t like stashing large quantities of cosmetics this would be for you as it has a healthy selection of goodies stowed away in a cute checkbook style wallet!

The shades in the wallet range from darker to medium to lighter. Lighter can be used as a highbrow highlighter or as an all over color wash for prepping the eye area while the darker shades can be used to smoke your eye out or to use as a liner and finally the medium shades can be used on the lid.

You can get very creative with the palette and create dozens of looks!

The blushes range from bronzey to pink and lighter to darker. You can use the darker shades to contour the face and the brighter colors on your cheek bones! The lip colors included are a deep shade of cranberry stain and a lighter glossier pink. The stain gives the appearance of just bitten lips while the glossier nude pink looks gorgeous on top for a bit of shine!

Tips and Trixs for Application:

  • Use any of the 4 darker shades as eyeliners to line and define the shape of your eye!
  • Apply a medium tuned color onto lid and blend into crease to create a gorgeous look!
  • Apply a nude cheek color all over the cheekbone and a pink color on the apples of the cheek only!
  • Stain lips with the cranberry stain and dot pastel pink in the middle of the top and bottom lip for a plumper, fuller lip look!

The Muse is loving Pop lately and thinks the newest Smokey Rose Palette is definately gorgeous! The packaging is a gorgeous snap close, faux croc purple wallet with a loop for holding the brush inside. Easy storage! Easy for toting around in your purse!

Pop’s Smokey Rose Palette is most definately Muse Approved for purchase! It’s pigmented, it has a large selection of gorgeous goodies, it’s compact, it comes with it’s own brush….yup, it’s definately Muse Approved!

Lush Cosmetics Tea Tree Water Review

It’s starting to warm up here in New York. It’s not quite humid yet nor is it sweltering hot but it’s warm enough to make my normally dry skin take on a tinge of oily!

My forehead suffers most in the Summer and becomes a fun mirror of shine and oil!

Never fear, Lush is here to save the day!

Picture+089

When the weather warms up and I know my skin will begin it’s descent into the depths of oily hell I turn to Lush Tea Tree Water to clear up my skin and make it matte and normal once again!

I spritz this on in the AM prior to my normal moisturizer and it mops up excess oil and preps my skin for my moisturizer! When I take off my makeup for the night I spritz it on again prior to my night cream! It keeps me oil free for about 5-6 hours depending on how hot it is and how long I’m outside! You can of course tote it around for fresh ups but I wouldn’t recommend using it on a made up face! I never have to worry about this drying out my face the way normal toners do as it’s 100% Alcohol Free which makes it gentle on my skin and not tight feeling after spraying on!

Picture+088

If you happen to suffer from acne this is a wonderfully refreshing toner for detoxing your clogged pores and not drying out your skin! I personally use it on my T-Zone during warmer days when oil rears it’s ugly head!

The smell is refreshing and it doesn’t sting the way some toners tend too!

For me it’s an absolute “must have item” for the long, hot Summer ahead!

Good-bye oily skin! Hello, Gorgeous!

Lush Tea Tree Water is most definately Muse Approved for purchase!
