Included in it’s Fall Collection Etude House released a Plumping Lip Tint which I’m lovinggggg at the moment!
These glosses are new to the Etude House line up and I believe LE but don’t quote me on that! They come in two shade selections both of which are sheer but give a nice tiny hint of color to the lips.
I love both shades and I’m happy I indulged in purchasing both as they are high quality items for the price and offer a brilliant glossy layer to my favorite lip stain or lipstick or of course, they look rather gorgeous alone as well. The formula is an emollient, moisturizing and quite thick gloss which gives the illusion of plumped, fuller lips. Each gloss is flavored in a cool, tingly minty bubblegum taste which, for me, a lover of flavored glosses, is quite nice!
The glosses come with the typical spatula style applicator many Asian brands favor and which I totally love as it’s great for layering gloss on and getting a nice even finish plus it’s easy to clean up prior to placing back into the tube.
The colors available are pink and red but neither is very pigmented however since the gloss contains a fair amount of tingly goodness you can expect to get a certain pink or reddish tone to lips due to this. Over bare lips the gloss looks natural, glossy, and lovely. Over your favorite lip stain or lipstick the gloss creates a sexy mirror finish that’s gorgeous!
At under around $5 USD each the price is terribly right and they work almost as great as my favorite plumping gloss of all time, DuWop Lip Venom.
The Muse likes ‘em and approved ‘em!
Definitely a nice addition to my gloss collection!
What are your favorite plumping glosses?

Ugh I can’t keep up! MAC Suite Array is live on the MAC website as of yesterday and available at your local counter Thursday!
I feel my wallet cringing in agony!
Cute little chicklets of color to create a contrasting eye look with two matte shades that you can use to accent, define, and shade eyes.
I’ve never seen a duo release from MAC quite like these although the semi-matte finish does scare me slightly I do have my eye on a few of the shades in particular the aqua looks mighty fitting for a Muse!
What’s on your MAC wish list this week?

A few weeks ago I had mentioned dropping a rather ridiculous amount of cash on the new makeup offerings from Target, one of the items I had hauled was an NP Set Lipgloss in Nisi.
I know I’ve been very vocal about my great disdain for Napoleon Perdis but I’ve set aside my general dislike for his really bad tan and decided to give his new NP Set Collection a go.
I admit that I have trashed his line in the pass but when it went on sale I was the first one at the door grabbing up all I could and running as fast as my little legs could carry me to the register to pay for my treasures. Hey, I have no shame what can I say?
In all seriousness I actually do believe NP Set is considerably better than his original line that was sold at Sephora. For one thing it’s a bit cheaper (not by much), the foundation does not range in the colors orange, orange, and more orange (they actually included shades that are flattering to normal skin tones this time around), and many of the items actually have very nice packaging!
Out of all the offerings I ended up purchasing only one item but it’s changed my mind and made me want to indulge further because it was actually very good. I ended up purchasing NP Set Lipgloss in Nisi for $12 USD. This particular shade quite reminded me of the pink shade released with Dior’s Spring Collection which could account for why I liked it. It’s a bright, bubblegum pink that could prove difficult to pull off on some tones but I think it ended up looking pretty good on me which I was surprised about because I was fearful all that pink would definately look horrid! But it ended up looking smashing with a bit of pink shadow and blushing pink cheeks!

One of the rather awesome features of the gloss is it’s pigmented enough to act as a creamy lip color. I didn’t have to prep my lips with a stain or a lipstick prior to use simply because the color is pigmented enough to act on it’s own at shading my lips with beautiful, glossy color. I did experience a slight problem during application as the gloss doesn’t glide as well as I’d like and it kinda applies streaky which is a bit of a pet peeve for me but…so does Dior Addict Gloss so what the heck right? The formula is super soft, super moisturizing, and super emollient.
All in all the gloss is actually very nice for it’s $12 price tag and well worth checking out. It’s available in several shades and I see myself possibly going back for a few more colors! I liked this one and think it’s worth taking a peek at!
Tried any of the new NP Set items at your local Target?
Not so much?

My tea is happily dribbling down my monitor at the moment as after seeing this advert I couldn’t help but cough.
Isn’t this kinda like comparing apples and oranges?
I’m unsure if a $1 Tinted Moisturizer can hold it’s own next to Laura Mercier’s rather awesome version!
But tickle me curiosity!
I’m ordering some just in case!
