Clinique Pep-Start Pout Restoring Night Mask & Dragons!

Clinique Pep-Start Pout Restoring Night Mask ($17.50) is yet another launch in the Pep-Start Collection which acts an overnight hydrating treatment mask for lips. I have pretty dry lips so I’m always looking for a good balm that isn’t sticky or tacky which I can wear to bed.

You can apply this any old time of the day but it is recommended as a nightly treatment to restore moisture and leave lips soft and supple the next day after use.

Clinique Pep-Start Pout Restoring Night Mask is available now at

P.S. Don’t read past this point if you don’t want any spoilers from the Game of Thrones episode this week!

OMG! The Night King raised an effing dragon! I KNEW it was going to happen but some part of me was like, “Naaa! How could that go down?” But it went down people.

You did have to suspend all sense of logic in this episode though because really where did the Army of the Dead get a bunch of large chains from? How did Dany get to Jon so quickly!??! Is Jon really that small? I’m sorry, blame the meme for that joke.

And one of those most important questions ever, will they address the fact that Jon and Dany are related or will they ignore that and have them making sweet, sweet love in the finale.


By the way, they should give up all hope now because Cersei’s not giving that throne up for anyone. They are NEVER getting her on Team Bend the Knee so just forget about it. They might had a chance prior to her being pregnant but now that she’s got a baby Lannister cooking up she’s going to protect that throne with everything she has. Night King, Army of the Dead, Dragons, NOTHING is going to get her to give in.

By the way, I’m not even remotely apologetic for that crude meme.

Just keeping it real my friends ;-D


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Ha ha! The episode was crazy but I was not surprised when the dragon’s eyes opened and they were blue. And Dany and Jon’s relationship is nowhere near as messed up at Jamie and Cersei so….

    • Isabella Muse

      lol too true! She’s having Jamie’s child and his nephew/niece! Haha!

      • Annie

        Plot twist: the new Lannister bun in the oven is going to be a dwarf, so Cersei will have to reckon with her animosity toward Tyrion. Ha! I wish!

    I am newly obsessed with this blog and check in daily!! I am obsessed with my dry lips, too, and I have been using Bite Beauty’s lip mask.. LOVE IT! I also love KBeauty, and I have the LaNeige version too, but the Bite Beauty is so much better! I am actually doing a comparison post on my blog (My Boyfriend Hates Makeup) in a few weeks! Def want to try this Clinique one, too, since the price point is so good.

  • Robin

    But she’s not supposed to have another kid!! I was upset the dragon died. Will the siblings be harmed by blue eyes?

    • Isabella Muse

      She’s not technically not barren or maybe I’m reading the story wrong. I think she was mislead to believe she was. She also technically gave birth to her dragons on some level. The eggs were believed to be fossils and for all intents they were. Some infertility magic on her side are what caused them to hatch. Maybe I’m overly thinking this though 😀 I think Viserion has the possibility of killing his siblings or even his mother. But I also wonder about the interactions between Dany and Viserion when they do finally meet. Will he recognize his mother? Will she still have some control over him? Or will the Night King have total possession? Ice Dragons have been hinted about in the past, one is said to live beneath the wall, they are explained as if they are species unto themselves, wild, free. But those are stories, no one has actually seen an ice dragon! Until now anyway! I’m rubbing my hands together in glee and hopeful he’ll make an appearance in Sunday’s finale! And I’m hoping the Night King underestimated his power and perhaps Viserion will turn on him! THAT would be epic!

      • Robin

        Yes!! If Viserion freezes him or burns him up, that would be great!
        I like Dany and Jon together or Dany and Jorah! After what he went thru to get rid of the grayscales, he deserves happiness w/Dany!

    Muse, I don’t even watch the show, but I know who Jon Snow is because he is smoking hot. As soon as I saw that meme I sent it to my adult son who just replied with an eye roll. I think it’s funny as hell!

    Anyway, about the actual product you were posting about this is what I have to say:

    Dear Clinique: Just stop. Stop bringing out stupid products that people don’t need just to increase your sales. Your brand is failing because you waited waaaay too long to join the 21st century. Now you are grasping at straws to lure all the millennials to your brand which will never happen because there are way too many cosmetic brands out there that have already built a relationship with said millennials. Just stick to what you know, which is good skincare. That is all.

    (Full disclosure, I worked for Clinique for over two years so I know all about their marketing strategy to attract millennials to their brand. Hence all the “new” products with the colored packages and hip names. When I worked there, about 90% of the customer base were women in their 60s or older. They would have classes for us to tell us they were trying to attract twenty somethings and they were bringing out new products left and right. I would just roll my eyes because Clinique cannot compare to the likes of say, Urban Decay or Smashbox or Too Faced, etc.)

    • Isabella Muse

      haha! I don’t blame you Kit Harrington is a good looking guy! ;-D You should watch the show! They did a good job adapting to screen! You’re right about millennials. they are trying to capture that audience! As are all brands lately but clinique is just a wee bit late!

  • Allie

    I’m disturbed that i’m looking forward to some swooning between Dany and Jon. Incest love. Swoon.

  • CarrieAnne

    Muse, stay away from the clutches of YouTube if you don’t want to predispose yourself to figuring out what happens next in the show. My husband and I are addicted to the GoT fan nerd channels like Talking Thrones and Emergency Awesome and so far they are almost spot on with forecasting the series, as well as interpreting the show leaks. But I don’t mind!

    • Isabella Muse

      OMG I watch Emergency Awesome too! haha! Stay away from Reddit, that’s where the real spoilers are! I try to avoid the GOT sub because it sucks you in and ruins your life lol!

  • Saiba

    I had prepared myself since I first saw the dragons in season 1 that one or all of them were going to die….I still wasn’t prepared enough. Why?! Why did this show make me cry over a CGI dragon T-T Oh and they are all screwed. The NK has a dragon o_o

    Dany and Jon, I don’t know why but I ship it lol Maybe it’s cuz they’re both Targaryens and I don’t want that lineage to die out. Targaryens have been doing incest since forever and Dany herself is an incest baby XD I feel bad yet I don’t since it’s a tv show.

    Also I don’t think Cersei really has a baby…or if she does it’s not gonna happen. The prophecy said she would only have 3 children. So if it is there I don’t think she’s carrying to term. Though it would be cool if she gave birth to a dwarf. >:D

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL! Aww 😀 I totally understand! It was such a sad moment! Hell I’m all Team Incest lol! They make a cute coupon! OMG if she gave birth to a dwarf that would be such epicness!
