Limited Edition Awake Stardom Reflective Eye Quad First Impression

I ordered Awake’s Stardom Reflective Eye Quads from Neiman Marcus for a lovely girl and myself and I must say I’m delighted how pretty these are!

$38 USD gets you a sparkling quad of eyeshadows that are just beautiful! These are my first awake quads and I’m excited to dig in and use them!

The shades quite remind me of T’estimo but it appears these are a shimmering shadow through and NOT sprayed over with a layer of shimmer!

The palettes are easily purchased at Neiman Marcus so you don’t have to go out of your way to have someone purchase them for you from Japan!

Lori Griener Cosmetic Storage Solutions

I get so MANY questions in regards to some of my storage cabinets that I use for cosmetics and I’m happy to report that my three main storage units are up and available on QVC’s site for sale again!

Sometime ago they had been sold out but now is a good time to grab them! I personally love both and think they are a fabulous deal!

You can see my original post about the units and my cosmetic storage by clicking here. I’ve included some videos of my entire collection, plus photos, etc…in that original post!

Sometime ago I had asked for pics of collections and storage units! I got a few replies but not many so if you’d like to share your collection, massive or small, and how you store it e-mail me at [email protected]!

Here’s three of my main storage units that you can purchase from QVC!

Boots No7 Beauty Gifts

I know I’m a posting demon tonight aren’t I? But I may go on hiatus while I watch the season finale of Torchwood so I best get my beauty posts in while I can because I’ll be in mourning until it comes back or Season 4 of Doctor Who makes it’s appearance (whichever comes first)! The Muse worships at the altar of Tennant and Barrowman which means without either on telly I’m as good as dead!

Ok bit dramatic but anyway (I’m slightly exhausted and sleep isn’t cooperating)!

Beauty posts!

If you happen to have mates, boyfriend’s, family members, or general gorgeous people (I’ve never not met a gorgeous Brit! Honest they are all lovely!) living in the UK you can ask them to buy you some very lux Boots gift sets (or you can go to Target and get some but what’s the fun in that?!??!)!

Boots No7 Set of 5 Mini Lipglosses $9.99

Boots No7 Set of Body and Lip Shimmers $9.99

Check out your local Target or CVS for Boots bits and bobs or just call over to the UK and get the good stuff as our gift sets aren’t nearly as lovely as the ones over yonder!

Ulta’s Color on the Go Palette

Hey if the Ulta Blockbuster Palette isn’t enough for you!

How about the Color on the Go Palette which includes 56 Eye Shadows, 30 Lip Colors, 2 Blushes, and 2 Over-All Face Colors!

Ulta’s Color on the Go Palette $19.99 at Ulta.com

I really want someone to prove me wrong about these palettes because they sure do look good but that much product in one place for $19.99 makes a Muse skeptical!

Ulta’s Holiday Blockbuster Palette

I guess Ulta’s doing it’s own little version of the Holiday Blockbuster Palette and it’s only $24.99! Take THAT Sephora!

Ulta’s version comes with 28 Eyeshadows, 12 Lip Colors, 4 Full Size Lipsticks, 4 Blushes, 4 Nail Polishes, 2 Face Powders, 2 Lip Glosses, 2 Lip Gloss Pots, 2 Eye Shadow Quads, 2 Concealers, 2 Liner Pencils, 2 Shimmer Powders, Applicators, a Removable Train Case, and a Partridge in a Pear Tree (I made the last part up).

Supposedly it’s worth $195 but personally I’d take a gamble that it’s a lot of cheap makeup with no pigment! Just the Muse’s humble observation (I know I’m cruel but if it makes up for anything I feel the same way about Sephora’s Blockbuster Palette!)!

What do you think?
