I’m really lemming Kiss’s Chocolatier Collection rather badly! The lipglosses aren’t very me but I must say both look really yummie!
What sells me most about the entire collection is the model! She looks quite like a doll using the palette and I’m wondering if I can achieve the same wide eye, innocent look using the quad in the same way!
It’s really brightened up her eyes in a simple yet elegant way!
I own quite a few Kiss cosmetics and I find that they make quite a nice high quality cosmetic so I’m thinking I might have to get the quad at least and maybe one of the glosses!
Tell the Muse!
PS Sorry about the ????? in the images! I don’t have language packs installed at work thus the question marks floating all around!
I was saddened to hear that Mr Shu Uemura passed away. His great skill and innovative ideas in the cosmetic world will be sorely missed. He was an artist in ever sense of the word!
I’m standing by my New Year’s Resolution with this FOTD! If you haven’t read my resolutions click here for details!
I’ve opened up and…gasp…used my Ombre Eclat Duo and Liner palette finally! I created a very simple yet pretty gold look using this palette! Contrary to the promo images you can’t create a big fanfare look with this palette as the shadows aren’t pigmented enough to do so however you can get away with creating a very lovely yet elegant gold look!

Meet Morgen Schick:
I was sorting through e-mail and I came across an e-mail from “Morgen” at first I thought it was spam but after reading it I was astounded to learn it was from Morgen Schick, herself!
Morgen’s e-mail to me:
Hello Muse. This is first time I have been on a ‘blog’- guess it shows my age! My name is Morgen and I actually have never Goggled myself until today, when some one told me I had to see what was on the ‘net’ about me! So I scrolled down, and see that this lovely lady has picked one of my all time favorite products as one of her ‘Fav of 2007’ products! I decided 2 things, #1- that I wanted to thank you, and #2- that you need a new Hide N Hilight!! So, if there is an address where I can personally send you a new one (at least for photography on your blog I will happily do so! I’m also loving that you use my Schick Stick Cheek & Lip Stain, again, something I use daily- I’ll throw one of those babies in too! I appreciate your including my little products in your very impressive list, and I hope you have an awesome 2008!! Best, Morgen
Even after reading this it took a sec for my brain to function and realize that this was indeed, thee Morgen Schick, and not someone playing around with me!
I almost fell off my chair soon after. I replied really quickly and in my star struck manner I asked her about HSN! It’s been a long while since I’ve seen her featured on HSN and to my delight she told me that she’ll soon be on and gave me her schedule for the dates and times!
If you’re a US resident you can tune into HSN on the following dates and times to see Morgen Schick! It’s been ages since Morgen has been on and I can’t say how excited I am! And I really want to share this with you because I honestly couldn’t achieve some of my best looks without using Morgen’s Whisper Set Powder and Hide and Highlight Foundation!
Morgen Schicks Appearances on HSN:
Jan 16th @ 3pm and 11pm Jan 17th 7am, 2pm, and 8pm
You may remember a while ago I did a blog about my Flawless Face Coverage and how I achieve it, if not click here for details! One of my secret weapons to creating a flawless look is starting with the Morgen Schick Hide and Highlight Palette! This is my holy grail product! I use this as my main foundation of choice (click here to see it featured in my Year End Review). I’ll be featuring a review on the palette very soon but until then I highly recommend tuning into HSN and seeing Morgen work her magic!
It may sound corny but I’m such a very big fan of her cosmetics and the idea she took the time out to write me a lovely e-mail totally made my day!
Honey I’m home!
Did you miss me?
I have to get caught up with e-mails and comments but I was sure to do a few posts early this AM as soon as I came in the door so you weren’t too bored while awaiting my address to my court (I’m so self important aren’t I?)!
Thanks for all the great comments and e-mails! I’ll get right on the comments and I promise by next year you’ll all have a reply to the e-mails you’ve sent 😉
Vegas was awesome. CES was outstanding. I didn’t want to leave but real life was calling my number and I had to come back and get my butt back to work sadly!
I missed you all!
