I can’t believe it’s Easter this Sunday!
Didn’t that go fast?
I don’t know if I entirely like that Daylight Savings began 2 years earlier then it did last year and Easter is here 12 months in advance.
But seriously I kinda like the Winter and I’m somewhat sad to see it go so quickly! In all seriousness does the fact that Daylight Savings coming early REALLY help you to be more “green”?
I’m still switching lights on left and right so all this extra daylight is definately not saving me money on my electric bill (or helping me conserve much energy for that matter). Bad Muse Bad!
Either way…..this post isn’t about conserving energy but more about wishing you a very Happy Easter Sunday! I hope you’re spending it with those near and dear to you be it friends or family!
I’m not a very religious person but my parents are and I try to be as “religious” as I can be for them (bloody hell I went to an all girl’s Catholic School!) but for me it’s all about the chocolate and the Easter Bunny. The tooth fairy is a gimmick, Santa was created by department stores to sell toys but the Easter Bunny is real! What’s not real about a big, fat, fluffy bunny who hops around giving chocolate and maybe a colored boiled egg or two? That’s some serious stuff right there!
Wishes for a beautiful Easter be it about the chocolate, the resurrection of Christ, or both! Enjoy, be happy and healthy, and above all be thankful you’re here, right now, to enjoy it all!
Spring is upon us! A special time for rebirth what’s not to love about that?
Happy Easter from your bunny loving Muse!
I got something cool to show you!
Behold Pop Rose Belle Blush Palette (I’m getting pretty good with these close up shots aren’t I? I’m rockin’ the new Canon!):
I have tons of eye palettes. Like seriously alot, more then two. But I don’t have any blush palettes and in all honesty when I think about it how many companies even make blush palettes!?
Which leads me into my review on Pop’s Rose Belle Blush Palette! This thing has freaking eight shades to choose from! How excited am I? I bet you’re excited too…don’t lie…I know you are!
Pop makes some uber cute cosmetics a few of which grace my collection and I’m happy to have gotten a chance to try out this new blush kit from them! The palette comes in three shade selections, each of which holds 8 shades of blusher, highlighters, or bronzers. The one I got is Rose Belle but they also have two others which are Bronze Belle and Glow Belle. Bronze Belle comes with a selection of 8 Bronzer while Glow Belle comes with a variety of highlighting shades. In my humblest I like the idea of having eight shades of blush in one palette so I think Rose Belle is definately the nicest in the selection of kits offered.
Each one is $28 USD which breaks down to about $3.50 per a blush, another words it’s a total steal. The colors are silky, smooth, pigmented, and easy to blend. Use one or use several to create different shades to suit your skin tone or use one to highlight and one to contour. You can seriously get hundreds of looks from one palette as it’s so versatile!
The shades included with Rose Belle are Pale Pink, Baby Pink, Mauve, Copper-Rose, Fresh Rose, Hot Pink, Nude-Rose Glow, and Bronze-Rose.
The colors range from light shades to darker bronzer shades. All the colors are pretty much flattering for any skin tone in my opinion and if for some odd reason you can’t find a suitable color among the eight you can get all Doctor Frankenstein and start combing colors like a mad scientist to concoct a shade that’s uniquely you! Isn’t that fun now?
The palette is pretty small and perfect for travel. Easier then toting around a few MAC blushes in my opinion! Slip this into your traincase and you have eight colors at your fingertips!
Overall, definately a sweet palette for the price and worth taking a look at!
This one gets a thumbs up and Muse Approved seal of approval for purchase!

Ok did my best. I’m NOT a good swatch person but I thought these would be helpful for all my girls in Europe, Asia, China, Etc…that aren’t getting the collection for at least another month or more!
I’m not a good swatcher sadly and the pictures are so so! Hope it helps a little!

I’m off to bed! The Muse is early to bed tonight and very early to rise (5am groaannnnnn!)! Sweet Dreams pretties!
PS I forgot to do a swatch of the piggie will do that tomorrow! I’m ditching Starlet Kiss and Melrose Place so no swatches for those. Way too mod for me! And the Beauty Powders I didn’t swatch because you just couldn’t see them!
I was muddling around with Heatherette this morning and I slapped together a rather quickie FOTD that came out absolutely awful!
But…at least you can kinda see some of the colors together!
I’m not sure if the problem was with my lack of blending skills this morning or the fact that the colors are so difficult to work together with!
What I Used:
MAC Heatherette Trio 2
MAC Duo Eyeliner in Phone Me/Text Me (Heatherette)
MAC Lipstick in Hollywood Nights (Heatherette)
