Sneak Peek: Lancome Holiday Collection 2009

The British Beauty Blogger is on the case of the Lancome Holiday Collection 2009. Although it may be early for you to think of the Holiday, the world of beauty bloggers are already clamoring at the prospects of beautiful seasonal makeup.

Lancome releases yet another shimmering powder with this year’s holiday collection. I find that Lancome and Estee Lauder seem to keep with the powder theme much of the time. Obviously, this is a super secret ninja spy marketing technique because they know we can’t just pass up a powder that sparkles right? Lancome Sparkling Cherub Sheer Warming Illuminating powder has a cute little cherub embedded into the powder and appears to be made up of a bronze gold shade. Looks more Valentine-like to me but very pretty none the less.

Lancome Glossy Plum Color Fever Gloss looks like a rather festive red color. British Beauty Blogger reports it’s somewhat of gothic, vampy shade. I find it unique and quite fitting for the holiday.

Also releasing are two limited edition Lancome Oscillation Mascaras one of which is a sparkling gold and the other a silver. I’m really interested in both as I love sparkly lash looks for the Holiday.

The entire collection should be available on counters November 1st or probably before if this Muse’s Lancome hopes and wishes are granted.

The Body Shop Fall Collection 2009: The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents Review and Swatches

The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents is available now in store and online. The Body Shop went a little warm this year and a little bold with their new Fall line up. I was quite delighted to see a mix of Fall friendly shades thrown together with some very vibrant, popping shades of green, blue, and lilac. Quite an interesting collection if you’re a friendly fan of color.

In honor of their new Fall Collection, The Body Shop is featuring new haul videos daily from youTubers who review, discuss, and even do tutorials using the collection. You can hop on over to The Body Shop Blog and enjoy a new video daily to see who’s loving all over the collection and what sort of looks they created. The Muse did a very brief video on her MuseTV channel over on youTube however she doesn’t particularly excel at video creating which is why she is following up that review with a post here on Musings.

Jump ahead for my review of The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents.

Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun Review

I’m keeping my Summer glow together with a little bit of Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun. Never again will I hate bronzers after using this little bronzer….errr…maybe I should say huge as the packaging is big. The excitement and delight of bronzer all comes together when I whip out my fancy box of Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun.

I’m one smitten kitten with this kawaii packaging and adorable puff for application.

Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara Review

smashbox1

Dude, remember that kid from A Christmas Story? Come on, who doesn’t traditionally (and compulsively) watch A Christmas Story every year. I mean it wouldn’t be Christmas without it right?

But anyway…..remember the catch line? Of course you do.

“You’ll shoot your eye out!”

This is so the problem with Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara. In this case I’m not going to shoot my eye out but I’m going to poke my eye out if I’m not careful.

Jump for the review.
