the Muse on QVC All Access Beauty

Musings of a Muse QVC

25 hours of beauty on QVC? I’m on that! Literally, I’m on that. The Muse makes an appearance on the QVC All Access Beauty with 12 of my very favorite picks from Tarte, It Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Philosophy, and more later this week!

QVC is such a big part of Musings of a Muse so I was very flattered when they recently asked me to pick 12 of my favorite products and told me they’d be featuring those favs on their website.

Of course, it took me all of a minute to choose because there are so many HG (holy grail) products that I use daily that I discovered, purchased, and repurchased from QVC that it was a complete no brainer making my selections.

My picks are featured on the All Access Beauty Shop along with other great bloggers like Afrobella and Temptalia. I’m sure you’ll recognize many of my favs as I rave them constantly, like, It Cosmetics Concealer…seriously, how much time have I spent raving that concealer right? So, of course, it had to make an appearance on my All Access Beauty page!

All my favs aren’t live yet but most of them are and you can view (and purchase if you like) them at

People are ALWAYS asking me what are your favorite products? What products do you use daily? And MANY of the ones featured here are what I personally use and reach for daily! So now you have a little reference for some of my favorites!


Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream Review & Swatches

Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream

CC Creams are hitting hard this Spring in Korea and many brands are introducing their own variation. The latest one I tried is Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream which also fits into the color adapting formula that many of the brands producing CC Cream are using.

I am very impressed with the color changing technology on CC Creams as they seem to indeed do a fairly good job of fitting my exact skin tone and so far I’ve only had one that was a tad too pasty and light. Outside of that it appears the skin adapting technology is really working out quite well.

Let’s take a look at Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream.


Y.E.T Break BB Water Drop Review & Swatches

Y.E.T Break BB Water Drop BB Cream

I recently purchased Y.E.T Break BB Water Drop on a whim when I snatched up some of Y.E.T’s Blushes and Skincare products. This was a poor purchase on my part as I HATE Water Drop BB Cream style products.

Anyone with me?

They are always so terribly runny and watery and just ugh…!

I had hopes this would prove different.

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge Review & Swatches

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge Spring 2013 Shades

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge is available in a few new shades for Spring 2013 so I quickly snatched up one (even though I was tempted to get them all).

Maquillage is one of the sub-brands that’s part of Shiseido in Japan. Such a shame its never made its way to the US.

The appealing aspect of Essence Glamorous Rouge was the colors were inspired by natural lip colors and tone so it gives you that “your lips but better” finish.

Holika Holika Pure Mellow Jelly Blusher Review & Swatches

Holika Holika Pure Mellow Jelly Blush

Holika Holika Pure Mellow Jelly Blush is a cute cream blusher available in five different shades. I recently picked this up on a whim because I loved the sweet apricot color plus I thought a cream blush would be rather excellent for Summer wear.
