My “new” template is actually getting older now but I thought I’d share some tips and tricks on how to find content on Musings of a Muse today so you can have the best user experience possible on my site.
There are SO many ways to search through the archives and older posts and you might not be utilizing them.
So this is a little discussion of how you can find your fav brands, search for reviews, etc….
Clickable Categories and Tags
One of the best features of my site in my opinion are the category tags. Every single post features clickable tags below the post title. See the photo above for an example as it contains tags for Asian Brands, Beauty Abroad, Blush, Japanese Brands, Majolica Majorca, Make-up Reviews, Muse Approved, Swatches…you can click any of these tags and similiar posts will be available for you to browse through!
Search by Brand
If you look towards the right hand side of the site you’ll see some pull down menus that allow you to search by brand. I’ve categorized these into four sections which include:
- Drugstore Brands (Almay, Covergirl, Revlon, L’Oreal, etc….etc…etc….can all be found here)
- Mid-Range Brands (Urban Decay, Lorac, Bare Minerals, etc….etc….can all be located here)
- High-End Brands (Givenchy, Dior, Guerlain, etc….are all here)
- Seasonal Collections (Spring 2007? Summer 2008? All seasonal collections are located here)
Simply drop down the menu, click the brand you want, and EVERY single post I ever did for that brand will appear in your browser.
Muse Approved, Beauty on a Budget, and a Daily Dose of Beauty
Want to know some of the products that are really doing it for me? Click on the Muse Approved icon located on the right hand side of the blog and you’ll be magically whisked away to things I love. While you’re hanging out over there do check on the Beauty on a Budget and Daily Dose of Beauty tags too!
These are just some of the cool ways to search through the site!
I’ll cover more in another post soon!
Have fun storming the castle!
Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek Liquid Blush were launched in four shades last year but I never got a chance to review them and that’s a shame because they are a fantastic product.
Although available for a limited time they are still very easy to get from a variety of online shops. These are a liquid blush the likes of which has never been done before by Majolica Majorca.

A tanning body wash? Has to be the first of its kind as I’ve never seen a body wash that acts as a self tanner! Innovative!

Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream Color Control Cream SPF 32 PA ++ was recently released in Korea. Actually, Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream is one of a few products in the Face 2 Change range but I’ll tell you more about those in upcoming reviews.
CC Creams got a big push this Spring in Korea and more and more brands are launching their own variations. At this point, I can honestly say, I am in love with the CC Cream formulas I’ve tried and dare I say find them even more wearable and user friendly than some of my personal favorite BB Creams. Tony Moly, Skin Food, Etude House, and Holika Holika are just a few of the many brands that are doing CC Creams at the moment.
Let’s take a look!
