Tell the Muse

Hey guys!

I was curious....

What would you like to see more of? Less of? Something I haven't covered that you want me too?

Do throw your ideas at me! I'm curious what you're wanting to see at Musings or what you'd like to see more of!

Tell the Muse all about it!

Dear Mlle. Muse,

Do you have any info on the new Bond No. 9 bottle design contest? Please post about this, it sounds so cool.

Heard they're holding a design competition for their new Brooklyn scent's flacon, and I am super curious -

(How amazing would it be to win and get my beauty vision realized?!)

thank you!

I'd like to see more fragrance reviews. I think you do a great job on them! :)

Well I love your skincare and base makeup reviews so if I had to ask for anything I'd ask for more of that.

Also it'd be cool for some reviews if you posted before and after shots. Also sometimes it's difficult to tell if you're truly raving about a product or you're doing a paid review from a brand that has sent you a sample. Are you allowed to tell us when you're doing those?

Oh and it would be nice to see some of your entire looks! Hair, makeup, outfit, shoes...

hello Musey- i've been wondering what you thought of the M-Lab creams and potions. (though it's hard to review them, obviously, i just wanted your impressions)

I love when you review high end brands. Items that are really rare or expensive. I´m sorry, but you asked ;)
Stash Spotlight is also great and what would be the ultimate post for me, a complete inventory of your collection, with dozens of detail photos, all labeled. Well, again, you asked ;)

I love your site, but I must say ever since you switched formats, I've been coming less often. I don't like that I need to click to read the most of any post--all the back and forth really bugs me and my internet connection! I liked it when the majority of the post was right there on the page! Anyways, just a thought. Thanks for all your do!

hi kelly!

Well thanks hun! I always fear I suck at fragrance reviews but I'll sure do some more ;)

I really love reading your product reviews because I feel like you give an honest opinion on everything you try. Everyone else could love product X, but if you think it sucks/doesn't work, you'll tell us honestly! I really appreciate that :)


Hope things slow down and stop being so crazy for you.

hi youdee

Thanks hun. I'll try to do more base makeup, skincare.

before and after I'll try to work on sometimes I get busy and don't have time to do so.


I don't do paid reviews...Not sure any cosmetic brand pays anyone to review a product at least in my experience so anything you say here is my honest opinion of an should read my disclaimer as it explains about this :)

The only pay I get out of this are nickles and dimes I get from the ads that I display on the site aside from that I don't get a paycheck from my blog....

If I don't like sometime I just say it didn't work for me etc.....if I like it I normally get super excited and muse approve it etc...I thought it was obvious :)

If you have particular item in mind that I reviewed that you weren't sure how I felt about it...let me know and I can maybe go into greater detail of it?

looks I don't do...occasionally I twit pics of various items I am wearing etc...but my blog is mostly makeup and bringing into accessories, outfits, just makes it more fashion...? if that makes sense? I like the idea of bringing a bit of fashion into it but I don't know if I ever will but thanks for suggesting it :)

hi Brittany!

I'm sorry to hear you visit less lately :( I'm not going to change back sadly. Many, many large beauty sites embrace the read more option so I decided it was best for my new theme/format here. It's cleaner and fits more posts on one page :)

Thanks for the suggestion hun but I doubt I'll change this feature.

I'm so sorry ;(

I hope you'll still visit!

Muse, I say "more of the same!"

I am curious to see your hair down more, though. :)

Dear Muse,

It will be great if you can do a review of the Cle de Peau concealer. Its a rave among the celebrities but I have yet to get my hands on it because I can't seem to source cle de peau here. Also, tell us which is your fav concealer!

I really enjoy the discussion posts - and also stash posts! It's fun to see other's collections - especially if they're as vast as yours!

Keep up the good work! x

"Don't go changin' to try and please me!" i find it what i wanted to say... Don´t change.
But i really liked your swatches and reviews, so more swatches and reviews again :)!

Agree with this. I totally don't visit as much either. I also dislike the amount of asian type products that are reviewed. I mean I can understand some, but it seems like that is all I see when I come here.
And please don't get offended because that isn't my intention, you asked so I thought I'd share.

Aw, well THANK YOU for responding! It's been on my mind every time I come here! My internet has been going a bit faster now, so it's not terrible, I really just find that I click on less things, so that's kinda bummy (bummy? yes, bummy!)
Anyways, I love all the same things you do, so I'm here QUITE often, and now that I know it won't be changing I'll simply get used to it!
As for what to review...more skincare scrubs! :)

hi aretha!

Absolutely will! It's in the works I've just been terribly slow getting to it :) forgive me?

Oooo right now, it changes often, my fav concealer is electric eye from shills ;) also I'm loving mally concealer system and the bb creamy concealer palette ;)

Those are my top three!

hi Anonymous

Aw sorry to hear you don't visit as much. Sadly I've embraced the read more option fully at the moment.

Is there a reason you don't like Asian cosmetic reviews? I've built this blog on many asian/beauty abroad posts and a majority of my readers absolutely love it as it's different and unique :)

Also, many of my readers are of some asian descent so I think that like stopping by hearing about local brands in their country.

was there some reason in particular you don't like these reviews?

I beg to differ though on "seems like that is all I see when I come here". I think that's probably not true considering the amount of reviews I pump on daily are normally US based. Especially lately since currency is converting terribly so I do less and less shopping abroad.

I'm not at all offended, thanks for sharing and giving your feedback. Hopefully you'll explain why you aren't a lover of these reviews as I'd like to hear your thoughts.

hi Anonymous!

All comments approved this morning that I got last night and the day before. Was there something you commented on that I didn't reply too?

hi brittany!

My pleasure hun! I'm going to try and see if I can make my shorter posts "read more" click free :) I've been having a prob with related posts appearing in posts without the read more option so I'll def try to make these easier for you and leave the longer ones at read's that? Compromise? :-D

I think mostly it's also my site, not your connection, I noticed my new template loads a little slower :(

I'm glad you'll visit me still! I appreciate your stopping by daily. I'll def see what I can do about the smaller posts...this is def a prob that I can solve :)

scrubs?! really?! You got it! Will see about doing more scrubs...body or facial?

Hey Musey. :)

I love the site just as it. I adore the new lay out, think it's even better than the last one, and I like the Read More option, because sometimes I want to skip a product and I can do this easily.

I don't leave many comments - and really, that's just because I use so few brands. I try to only use products where neither the finished product or the ingredients have been animal tested. So it kind of doesn't leave me much choice! lol. But I come here a couple of times a day, and jealously read most of the product reviews, whether I can buy them or not. :)

I'd love to see some synthetic brush reviews, and I need to find me a tinted moisturiser so any reviews you do on these I'd be very interested in. But seriously, don't change a thing - you're perfect just the way you are. :)

hello bev!

thank you so so much hun :) I like it too as it makes things so much neater :-D

You're a smart girl! I want to be more minimized myself :)

did you see the cargo plant love line that's pretty good!

Thanks so much for stopping by daily hun I really appreciate it :-D

I think I have just the tinted moisturizer you might like! I'll have to buy it soon so I can review :) and def will look into brushes for you!

Thank you hun, your feedback means the world!

woops... am i a bit late? i've been so unconnected lately, breathing the offline air for a few days. i hope you still get to read my comment ;)
i also have to (still) get used to the new format, i'm sure i'll get around to love it as much as the previous one.
now to the base question. i'd love for you to review MORE korean and japanese products haha, i've read the comment that you ONLY review asian brands, comeon... you do US, UK, Asian everything! that's why i love your site cos it's so amazingly diverse!

hmmm, i'd specifically love for you to review more "skinfood" products~

Yay! Thanks for the compromise. It's perfect! And bring some facial scrubs at me!!!

hey hiromix!

LOL how was the offline treating ya?!

Don't love it too much, it's about to change for Spring hehehe!

thanks hun..I feel the same way. I think I do ALOT of everything and I do notice that mainstream cosemtics rule my blog lately as in US brands considering the crummy conversion rates so I'm unsure why anonymous feels I only ever do asian product reviews...I'm think he or she doesn't visit often :)
LOL yes I'll get to skinfood soon promise!
