Makeup & Beauty On My Desk Series

Hey!

Hope you’re having a good week. It’s a short week thankfully! Been a rainy few days in Gotham but not much we can do about it outside of complain daily. And when the heat and humidity arrive? Complain some more. You know New Yorkers, never happy.

I have taken to doing a great Makeup & Beauty On my Desk Series on Instagram so if you don’t follow me, well, you’re missing out. Not really…sooner or later everything I Instagram ends up on Musings anyway but it sounded dramatic saying that.

Basically it consists of beauty and makeup that passes across my desk so you can get a bit of a sneak peek of what might be coming up in terms of reviews.

This week quite a few lovely Asian goodies are passing across my desk like the Etude House Color Pop Collection and BRTC’s new Jasmine Water CC Cream. Slay me, I adore the BB Cream and now a CC Cream version?

Life is good.

In other news, I’m currently working on my 50th Anniversary jacket for Gallifrey One 2014 and this will make an appearance:

allonsy

Dontcha just love Etsy? You can find anything.

Oh and whoever said Game of Thrones went off the reservation is right. Started out quite good but yeah, not really following the book..but hey, it’s DAMN good entertainment.

Have a wonderful hump day!

Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher Review & Swatches

Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher 7

Unfortunately for me Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher is all about the pretty. This pretty little rose shaped blush is gorgeous to look at but the performance of it left something to be desired.

I never learn with this marble blushes almost ALL of the ones I own from a variety of Korea brands are typically too frosty to really act as a blush. Perhaps a highlighter? But the glow they produce is just too overkill for me.

Take a peek!

Tarte Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint Review & Swatches

Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronze Glow Matte Bronzer Cheek Tint

Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint is a late Summer 2013 release following on the heels of Tarte’s Aqualillies Summer 2013 Collection. Park Ave Princess is such a popular Tarte product that makes an appearance everywhere so I found it interesting this is a reinvention of the formula.

You’ll recognize the format with Tarte Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint as the Maracuja Blush & Glow in a similar style packaging. But in this case, I feel like you’ll make more use of the gel bronzer here where as I found it challenging to get through the highlighter in the Blush & Glow.

Let’s take a look!

Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara Review

Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara Summer 2013

Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara will be trickling into drugstores this June but I was lucky enough to try it out early. Don’t worry, it isn’t like June isn’t right around the corner. Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara had me hopeful because I didn’t really love the original Falsies formula and was hoping for more everything with Big Eyes.

Did it turn out into everything I hoped?

Ren Satin Perfection BB Cream Review & Swatches

Ren Satin Perfection BB Cream

Unfortunately Ren Satin Perfection BB Cream Sunscreen ($38), like most US brands, doesn’t quite get the idea of a BB Cream down correctly when compared to Asian brands. But they might just have something special on their hands here as the formula is positively delightful and quite silicone-free as well!

Let’s take a peek!
