I have quite a collection of B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful perfume and cosmetics! If you don’t know about B you’re really missing out!
B is Lush Cosmetic’s younger, glamorous little sister! It’s a vegan line of cosmetics, bath goodies, and perfumes created by (with a little help from a buncha other people) Mark Constantine, Lush’s owner!
B Cosmetics are legendary for bringing the glam and gorgeous to cosmetics with cute little bejeweled pots of blush, eyeshadows, etc…They also do an ultra glam line of perfumes in vintage bottles!
I may do a spotlight on my B stash this week sometime but until then I bring you some great gifts from B that are definately gorgeous!
Two sets introduced this year are the Chocolate Box Sets which contain your choice of three or six eyeshadows plus an eyeshadow brush!
You can select the colors of your choice that goes into the box! Weeee! How very fun!
B Shadows are pretty good quality. They do not contain much shimmer but they are extremely pigmented and go on smooth with long lasting results! They come in vibrant, bold shades that are simply beautiful!
So these as a gift or for yourself are pure perfection!
£24.50 Gets you three B Shadows in your choice of color, one bejeweled shadow brush, and a gift box!
£49.95 Gets you six B Shadows, one bejeweled shadow brush, and a gift box!
B Shadows are on par with MAC shadows so you’re getting a great little gift package that’s well worth your money!
If you’ll looking for an elegant gift for a special friend or makeup lover in your life this would surely be the perfect present!

Here’s a few more items that I purchased with my Friends and Family order discount! The Vincent Longo Diamante Quad’s in Roja and Cassini!
These are fabulous and I’m well and properly chuffed that I put these in my shopping cart when ordering. These are regularly $40 each but I paid $32 after the discount!
I already own a few of the Vincent Longo Wet Diamond Eyeshadows and adore them so having a palette of four shades is thrilling your Muse!
If you love shadows that have major fall out these be the palette for you! They contain a huge amount of shimmer, sparkle, glitter, and shine! They also happen to be super pigmented! Add that all together and it equals a must buy for me!
The colors in these palettes are all yummie and range from darker for a smoky eye look to lighter for a nice soft look!
When creating these I don’t think they had any plans for combining all four shades into one looks but have no fear you can do some pretty gorgeous looks just using two colors or even one!
Cassini contains a gorgeous shimmering purple, an elegant sparkling black, a beautiful beige and a softer shimmering pink!
Roja contains two beautiful bronze colors (one darker than the other), one darker pink and one lighter pink!
I find Roja has the best complimenting shades as you can do nice contrasting eyes using the two bronze/copper shades in the palette or the two pinks!
I’d say it’s a great bang of shadow for your buck whether you are paying the original $40 or the discounted price!
The Muse most definately approves!
I got my Sephora Friends and Family order a few days ago and inside lay my gorgeous Night Series Palette from NARS! Oh My! This is beyond yummie my friends and well worth the money!
I had blogged about this previously and must take back any bad thought I had about it! The palette just looks boring when you view it online! It looks matte and unexciting and just not something that I must have! So really when I originally seen it pop up on Sephora I just passed over it really quickly and chalked it up as rubbish that I didn’t need!
However, upon seeing it in store I fell in deep lust and it ended up on my WANT, MUST HAVE NOW list!
The palette is $55 regularly but I got it for $44 with the 20% discount. $55 may seem a bit much but if you break it down it’s less than $10 per a shadow which is a pretty good deal! I must say that I prefer paying $44 for it in comparison to it’s original price tag of $55 however I’d pay the regular price if I had to because the palette is most definately a high quality item in my humblest opinion.
The palette contains a favorite shadow of mine which is Night Star! I love this shadow! It’s an understated gold sparkle affair that is fantastic as a base or all by itself.
The rest of the shadows I don’t have but all of them are gorgeous. One of which I’m deeply in love with is the Night Snow which is a gorgeous shimmering white sparkle that’s going to be absolutely perfect for many great Holiday eye looks!
Other shadows included are Night Fever which is a black with tons of red glitter, Night Clubbing which is black with gold glitter, Night Rider which is purple with silver glitter, and Night Fairy which is lilac with gold glitter!
I love the two blacks in this palette because the shimmer has totally transformed the colors from being basic black to something completely WOW!
Overall, the palette is most definately on my awesome list! I’m completely loving it and it’s Muse approved for sure!
Tell me! I’m curious what you think!
