Laura Geller was on QVC a few days ago as any good twisted cosmetic junkie would do I recorded the showing. I was fast forwarding through most of it but I came across this little kit she did and it intrigued me!
The pictures actually don’t do the product justice. The lipshade appears on screen to be a very lovely burnt red color and the gloss on top made it into a golden dark peachy shade. It was rather nice on the model that was sporting it.
They kept raving on and on about how good it smelled and tasted but no one said exactly what it was smelling and tasting of. I can only assume it’s some tropical taste hence the name!?
The packaging also sold me as it’s studded in pink glittery bits. Cutes!
The set is available from QVC for $24.25 USD under Item Number A6451. I haven’t ordered it because I’m playing good girl at the moment and saving my little pennies for Summer releases however I am curious and I do have a little bit of a burning lem in my stomach! If you’re familiar with the color PS Kiss this reminds me of that thus the need to purchase it is hard upon me!
Own it already?
Just love Laura’s cosmetics?
Tell the Muse!
Oh my gods dontcha want ‘em? I came across this while browsing Bjooti (Click to visit
I want all of them thank you very much!
God they look amazing!
I hope they have a brush applicator instead of a sponge! I wanna bath in this stuff! No seriously though I think a brush applicator would totally kick it and get the product on in big, yummie, slippery slides! A sponge would suck!
We shall see!
Available from MAC very, very soon but not soon enough for me!
Want ‘em all?
Dying for them?

I know, I know. Why the bloody hell am I posting about Revlon? So unlike me. I should put a disclaimer on this post to say I do not buy Revlon.
The reason I’m posting this is because much of my target audience flows in from abroad. I love you yanks but sadly you aren’t my main reader quota.
We tend to take what we can get here in the US for granted and likewise for those of you around the world.
There in lays my inspiration for this post.
Something as simple as Revlon’s Spring Collection may not yet be available around the globe (or available at all for that matter) so it’s my responsibility as a good blogger to inform all my readers outside of the US what happening here in drgustores!
So I came across some of the Revlon Spring Collection at CVS when I was doing some personal shopping for Miss Rows at Mostly Makeup.
Here’s what I came across (hold your applause until the end):
Revlon does this big deal about how limited these are but this isn’t Japan which basically translates as you can get this crap for ages and ages and it never leaves the shelf. How limited is that? I think I’ll sue Revlon for false advertisement! Remember when they released those Just Bitten Lip Stains 500 years ago? Oh sorry it was last year I think! Well those are still hanging around the shelf. Yay for limited edition products!
Here’s the line-up, without further snarky, wise cracking commentary from me!
Floral Affair Sheer Powder Blush Available in 4 Color Selections
Make a Sheen Eyeshadow Palette Available in 4 Color Selections
Marble-ous Match Liner Available in 5 Shades
Soft on the Eye Sheer Loose Powder Eyeshadow Available in 3 Color Selections
Mix and Mingle Lip Palette Available in 6 Shade Selections
Prices range from around $6.99-$9.99 USD and most places have buy one get one 50% off type a deals depending on the sale at the tim!
I actually must say that collection is interesting! I won’t personally buy any of it but it does appear rather nice to look at!
So…that’s all folks!
Hope you enjoyed this brief foray into US Drugstore Brands (mind you Revlon is available almost everywhere in the world but unsure if this particular collection has reached shores other then our own here in the US).
Despise Revlon as much as the Muse?
Tell me all about it!
Bless Be! We have live instant messenging!
I was seeking a good program and all along it’s been right under my nose!
So what does this mean…?
It means you can speak to me live whenever I am online! Yay! If you look towards my left hand column and scroll down a tiny bit you’ll come across a tiny bubble that reads “Chat with theMuse”. Click it…go on you know you wanna……just be sure your pop up blocker is off!
Click to enlarge:
A window will pop up and connect you live to me! And we can chat, discuss the weather, makeup, whatever your little heart desires!
As long as the little radio button is “green” that means I may be at my computer and around for a little chitter chatter! When the button is gray it means I’m currently offline!
I’m pretty excited to finally have this available for you guys to use because I get so many questions and emails a day I think this might make things a bit easier!
Hope you enjoy it!
I’ve gotten alot of comments mentioning KATE as not being pigmented enough or not the best quality, etc…
This made me want to do a review of my own on KATE because it’s one of my favorite Japanese Brands and I think the quality is fantastic!
One of my favorite products in the KATE lineup are the Glamtrick palettes. They are sincerely some of the best quality palettes I’ve come across Japan side. The colors blend fantastically and the smoky eye looks you can create are truly fabulous.
KATE has an edge about it that other brands don’t and this reflects in the darker color selection available from KATE. In particular the Glamtrick palettes sport darker colors used to create very interesting smoky eye looks.
The Glamtrick palettes contain a total of five colors. One light shade of shadow, one dark contrasting shadow, one base, one liner, and a shimmering shade used over your completed look.
The palettes are at 1600 yen (about $16 USD) and in my personal opinion give alot of bang for your buck!
In order to create each look I used the lightest shade as a base on my entire lid, I proceeded to stroke the next medium shade from my lid to my crease, after this I packed on the darkest in my crease and on half of my top eye lid. To complete my look I lined my bottom and lower lash line with the shadow liner and dusted on a bit of the sparkling/shimmer shadow on top of the entire look and Bob’s your uncle the perfect smoky look!

KATE has an entire line of various palettes but I thought I’d share the Glamtrick ones with you as they are my favorite in the line! The palettes make creating what I called a “colored” smoky eye look goof proof and they take the smoky look to a new level with interesting shades instead of your standard gray/black look.
KATE’s Glamtrick palettes are most definately Muse Approved for their inexpensive cost, quality and pigmentation, and ease of use!
