Posts From January 2009
I recently did an FOTD
for you using Givenchy Sari Glow Blush in Maharani Orange, Givenchy Precious Sari Glittering Eyeshadow in Maharani Gold, and Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Maharani Henna and today I’ll be bringing you another look using some of the items from the Givenchy Spring Collection 2009.
Jump ahead to have a peek!
Since I’ve already done a warmer looking using some of the Givenchy Spring Collection, I thought a cooler order was in order. For the cooler look I used Givenchy Sari Glow Blush in Maharani Pink and Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Maharani Rose. I was tempted to use Givenchy Precious Sari Glittering Eyeshadow in Maharani Silver but I thought it didn’t quite go so well with all the pink so I opted for a wash of color using a few MAC eye shadows in various pink shades.
The pink blush wasn’t as popping as I thought it would be and it came out as a basic pink shade on my cheeks, quite flattering really but nothing as bold as I originally though. I’m absolutely in deeper lust now after trying out the Maharani Rose lippie! It’s a stunning shade and quite lovely for Spring.
Here’s the basic look I created using the above listed items:
My quest for inexpensive beauty finds has led me to Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream which has a near perfect rating on Make Up Alley and a really huge fan base on the Avon website.
If the MUA’ers like it that has to account for some of it’s creditability wouldn’t you agree?
At $32 USD for a 1.7oz jar I doubt you’ll find a cheaper night cream option, jump ahead and more about Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream.
Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream Review is a lightweight gel-like cream that works while you sleep to rejuvenate sleep, hence the name eh?
The price can’t be beat as this not only renews and rejuvenates but also helps to visibly shrink pores and erase fine lines from the face. Gets better and better doesn’t it? The formula is a gel cream which absorbs easily into the skin with absolutely no effort, my dry skin seems to like it alot as it’s cooling and glides into my skin beautifully. It carries a fresh scent which is somewhat floral, almost rose-like, very pleasant.
I honestly can’t speak for reducing pores and fine lines but the moisturizer did work well at renewing my tired, dry skin so I woke up with soft, silky skin minus dry, flaky patches that are customary in the Winter for me. Normally I use Philosophy When Hope is Night Enough for my night cream but I quickly ditched it in place of Lush Skin Nanny for the anti-aging benefits. A few months ago I discovered Steamcream (review coming soon…) which became my night cream but honestly speaking Steamcream has absolutely no anti-aging benefits to speak of. Taking into consideration all of this I’ve decided to make Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream my nightly cream until the jar is finished as I hope to report back soon that I see as many visible improvements as reviews have claimed on both MUA and the Avon site. So far I’m quite pleased that it works well with my dry skin and absorbs quickly, the benefits of anti-aging ingredients and promises of renewed skin are added bonuses.
All in all if you’re looking for a budget friendly night cream with quite a few bells and whistles I do think checking out Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream could be worth checking into!

Risser has further information and pictures of the MAC SugarSweet Collection on her blog! Yay! This is fab news for the Muse as I believe I’m more excited about this release then I am MAC Hello Kitty!
I blogged a tiny bit about MAC SugarSweet prior to this but do jump ahead for even more info about this sweet collection!
According to Risser’s blog the collection releases March 19 and includes the following items:
MAC Eye Shadows
- Dear Cupcake
- Aquavert (Oh Hai! I remember you!)
- Stars ‘n’ Rockets

Everything looks absolutely delicious and although many will be quick to compare it to the MAC SweetieCake Collection I do believe it’s quite different, unique, and has a flavor all it’s own!
I’d say I’m hauling just about everything in this collection! Fabulous! I feel very excited about a MAC release for the first time in ages.
How about you?
