FUZE Slenderize Guilt Free Lip Gloss

As Seen on Sephora:

This resolution is hardly original. But when beauty is involved, we’ll jump on any bandwagon. Too Faced’s new gloss packs wondrous ingredients that promote appetite-normalization. Swipe it on your lips to help kiss those unwanted pounds goodbye.

You read it here first folks. A gloss that’s going to help me lose weight. I’ll take a case. Wait. Better make that 10 cases! Thanks!

I always thought my appetite was pretty normal but this gloss is actually going to normalize it for me! I dunno what that means but it sure does sound super important. It’s also going to melt away any unwanted cellulite on my hips that I may want to rid myself of plus it’s also going to arrange for World Peace.

Can your gloss do that? What? I can’t make this stuff up people. It’s for reals!

The stupidity of the beauty world never ceases to amaze and delight me this is almost as good as the “breath fresher” lipgloss that was released last year!

I love me some gloss but count the Muse doubtful that a gloss is going to make me skinny!

I’ll eat my words later if this actually works or maybe not as I’ll be too full since my gloss is normalizing my appetite for me!

MAC The Originals Con Gratis

I faced the demons, the mad rush, and the evil Christmas shoppers and even Joe Torre (Seriously. He was sitting on one of the benches by the water fountain in the mall! To be honest I’d never have known it was him if my friend hadn’t said “HOLY SH*T It’s JOE TORRE!” Hey, a man’s gotta shop right? Even if he’s a New York Yankee!) to head to the MAC counter and explore the wonders and delights that is The Originals Collection.

And I’m here to say…………………..

It’s just as boring as I originally blogged about. Click here to read my first impression of this collection.

So…

I went, I saw, and I conquered.

The good news is I did get some of The Originals Collection because my darling, sweet, lovely, gorgeous MA gifted me with her “gratis” bag of The Originals. I didn’t purchase a single item while I was there but she just handed me her entire bag. I was gobsmacked at her generosity. To be utterly honest I went to the counter for two reasons: 1. To purchase Parrot and 2. To give my MA some truffles I had purchased for her for Christmas.

I ended up not buying anything as she came tearing out as soon as she seen me with the bag full of The Originals.

The really good news is I did fall in love with two of the items in the bag which was the Antique Gold and Blackened Red glitters! The rest was not so great (I feel so incredibly guilty for saying that as I’m eternally grateful for what a sweetie she is to me all the time).

Beautiful! My favorite in the lot! Blackened Red and Antique Gold Glitters

Here’s the items that she gifted to me:

I’m not sure how I’m going to make some of this work because some the colors are just not me. To be honest a majority of The Originals Collection just wasn’t Muse friendly! But I am very happy to have some of it to play with!

In the bag was Parrot which I’m properly chuffed to have a 3rd pot of because as I explained 2 pots of Parrot weren’t enough to get me through my lifetime!

Here’s the rundown:

Eyeshadows
Parrot-Gorgeous! Need I say more?
Charred-Quite a nice color for a smokey eye! I can definately make use of this guy!
Daisychain-Kinda blah. I actually though this would be much better in person but sadly it’s just a really meh shade of pale yellow! Good for a highbrow highlighter I guess!
Clue-I don’t even have a name for this! It’s sorta a brownish gray! Not so fab at all! This will be difficult to work with!

Lipglass
Full on Lust-Not so great. It’s a rather boring matte muddy rose color!

Lipstick
Chinz on Chinz-A soft chocolate color that I’m liking! I could make this work I think!
Nouveau Fro-A really awful beige mod color! I’m going to need to do some serious thinking on how to fit this into a look!

Glitters
Antique Gold Beautiful! Wouldn’t have purchased myself but happy to have this!
Blackened Red Lovely! Was definately on my “maybe” list and I’m happy to have a jar!

Overall, this is kinda fun as there aren’t many colors in the bag I’d have chosen for myself so now I’ll have a fun challenge trying to fit these into looks for myself!

The Originals Collection isn’t exactly what I hoped for but since I got some of it free I can’t complain too much 😉

A big thanks to my MA for spoiling me something awful!

Prescriptives Magic Eye Shadow Effects

I spied with my little eye some fantastic shadows from Prescriptives last night!

Behold! Magic Eye Shadow Effects Eyeshadow in Gold and Silver

Prescriptives is probably a brand I should pay more attention to but sadly I don’t. I happened across these and wanted them rather badly. Although I was somehow being frugal when I seen the $25 price tag!

Maybe after the Holidays!

I will say these are a very beautiful fine shimmer eyeshadow that’s a sure hit with the Muse as I love shimmery shades!

I have no idea if these are a Holiday item or if they have been around a while because as I said I’m not on the Prescriptives bandwagon but these look to be a definite keeper!

They will be mine *insert evil laugh here* but for now they can be placed on the back burner while I finish up my Christmas shopping for others as sometimes I have to remember Christmas isn’t always about “what the Muse wants”!

Twisted Peppermint Shimmer Body Splash

I should be taken out and shot for going back on my word and giving into the evil empire of Bath and Body Works.

I purchased two bottles of Twisted Peppermint Shimmer Body Splash last night contrary to my original post where I was saying how much I hate body splashes that shimmer.

I guess I’m contradicting myself as we’ve all established how much in love and lust I am with sparkle, shimmer, and glitter of any kind.

However, shimmer in my Body Splashes, Lotions, or any other Bath and Body item should be against the law! I hate it for some reason! I just detest shimmer in these products with a passion! Especially Body Splash! Why for the love of God and all things good would you want the put shimmer into a Body Spray!?

Sigh!

Rant, Rant, Stamping Feet, Rant!

Ok now that I’m done raving like a loon I will say that these were on sale so I guess it makes up for the shimmer part.

These were $4 Each and believe me I couldn’t resist the sweet, vanilla and peppermint scent so the overwhelming need to purchase came upon me and I left swinging a bag of body spray! Shoot me now for giving in!

In all seriousness these smell so yummie but I’m still wishing away the evil shimmer part!

The bottom of each has fake little peppermint candies! Cutes!

I went into Bath and Body Works with the soul plan to purchase a pair of Lambie Slippers because a reader who shall remain nameless for her sin created a lemming in me for these!

Sadly, they were sold out! My god the horror! Thus Twisted Peppermint Shimmer Body Splash took the place of my hardcore lemming for Lambie Slippers just barely mind you!

I’m currently searching E-bay for a pair but they are $39 and upwards and I haven’t yet reached the level insanity where I am even half considering purchasing a pair of slippers, shaped like lambs for $39. If I do reach that level you’ll be the first to know dear readers.

I did purchase a pair of the Sweetest Softest Slippers for $9 but they aren’t Lamb-y like. Dear oh dear what’s a girl to do?

Anyway.

The moral of the story is Twisted Peppermint Body Spray is a go with the Muse! Grab it while the grabbing is good because it’ll sell out quick at this price (it’s already gone online!)!

Happy Shopping!
