I love luxurious little makeup, fragrance, and beauty bits and bobs. Speaking as a girl who loves anything pretty, I think it’s pretty safe to say as women we all love something that has a little bit of a luxury chic feel. These pretty little luxuries don’t need to have expensive price tags, they only need to feel and look gorgeous.
Here are 10 little luxuries you may wish to indulge in. If you’re reading in RSS please visit my blog to see the slideshow embedded in this post.

The Cut has all the deets on Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl Inspired Collection available at Target shortly.
The line will be in stores and online from September 13 to October 17th so one assumes it’s a limited edition line up but chances are you’ll catch it at your local Target’s clearance wrack if the Muse has anything to say about it. Consisting of nineteen looks inspired by several of our favorite Gossip Girl characters, the line does leave a little bit to be desired in my eyes.
Gossip from The Cut says that Target Executives can’t handle the heat and aren’t wanting to associate the collection with Gossip Girl as the series is just a little too racy. Ahem…you think? But boy do I adore all that countless acts of badness, makes me want to be a mean girl too!
No worries big wig execs the Muse finds the entire line very innocent and girlish nothing I see here would S and B even think about wearing to bed never mind out on the streets of the Upper West Side.
As for this Muse I’m unsure if Anna Sui has even seen the likes of Gossip Girl prior to slapping this collection together. So not feeling the love and thinking it’s more drab than fab at this point. It’s ok, I wasn’t really wanting to take on the world of Gossip Girl fashion anyway.
Here’s a few images from the line but a peep at the various looks at The Cut and let me know what you think.
What do you think?

Check it out at the official Target site!
Tis the Season for a new Anna Sui Collection!
The Anna Sui website has been updated with the Christmas Collection which includes new nail polishes, new duo eyeshadows, and a few new shades of shimmer/glitter vials!
Honestly, as cute as the collection is I’m not particularly thrilled as the colors just aren’t what I like for a Holiday collection but they are limited edition which does up the appeal but ado even that doesn’t tempt me.
Two limited edition pouches with four nail polishes for 4,200 yen each are available.
Three limited edition eyeshadow duos are available as well at 2,500 yen each. These look darling but honestly the shades aren’t what I’d called Holiday friendly. Now if it was Spring or Summer I’d probably be all over these but I look for more shimmery, lighter colors come the Holiday!
And finally four new shades of the shimmer/glitter vials are available for 2,000 yen each. The shades are blue, silver, purple, and an off gold. These aren’t appealing at all to me either.
It looks like a perfectly nice selection but I think I’ll be skipping on a majority of it as it just doesn’t hold any interest for me. The selections are available within Japan only however a few select online shops do have the line available for purchase if you’re feeling a desire to own it for your very self!

Now that the Muse has taken care of a majority of the collections here in the states she’s ready to pursue her Japanese Brand Wish List!
I really want to hear all about what you guys are lemming from Japan this year ðŸ˜‰
Here’s what I am wanting:
The two new limited edition Christmas palettes from Lavshuca are so definitely on my wish list! The Japanese take all the extra steps to make a palette perfect in my opinion and in this case I’ll explain how. This palette is cute right? But are you thinking that maybe it’ll be a bit messy having eyes and lips in one place? That’s how the Muse’s mind works and when I originally seen this I was thinking oh wow love it, cute, but it’s going to be messy
Have no fear the palette is completely organized and mess free. The lip side of the palette has a clear plastic hinge that lifts up for application and flips down when not in use. Tell me is this mess free and awesome? The Muse loves the Japanese and bows to their superiority in making all things cosmetic perfect ðŸ˜‰
These retail for about $15 each and can be seen on the Lavshuca website!
They are most definitely on the Muse’s wish list!
The two Elegance Christmas Coffrets are on my wish list as well! Each kit comes with a gorgeous eyeshadow, blush, lipgloss, and case! These are a bit steep at about $78 each but I’m really loving the look of the eyeshadows in these kits! These are on the Muse’s “maybe” wish list! The only thing preventing me at this point of purchasing both is the price tag!

Kesalan Patharan’s My Dear X-Mas Coffrets are also on my wish list. Dear Dream seems somewhat more appealing to me than Dear Wish so it may come down to purchasing just one of these! Each Set is $65 USD (Can anyone verify the price for me in Singapore please?).

Anna Sui’s Christmas collection is delightful and I’m lemming just about all of it! On my wish list are the two separate makeup kits which include a pouch, gloss, and blush (peach and pink color options), the loose powder glitter, and the glitter mascara overcoat are all on my wish list!
Anna Sui Christmas Collection 2007
Anna Sui Christmas Set $45 Each USD
Anna Sui Glitter Mascara Overcoat $25 Each USD
Anna Sui Loose Gitter Powder $18 Each USD
I’m sure there are more items that will pop up and make their way onto my wish list but for now these are the items I’m really wanting!
I’m eagerly awaiting Majorica Majolica’s website update because I know I most definately want all of the Christmas items that will be introduced!
The Muse will update you as her list gets longer and her wallet continues screaming in absolute agonizing pain!
Want any of these items?
Something else on your Japanese Cosmetic Wish List?
Tell the Muse all about it!
An angel happened to help the Muse out in purchasing some of her recent lemmings for Anna Sui goodies!
Upon seeing the new Royal Romp collection from Anna Sui on the Japan site the Muse swooned in delight!
The entire collection is quite delightful but the thing that whispered to the Muse’s delicate little ears was the Pressed Powder M!
Magical Pressed Powder to enhance my complexion! Oh my!
The design on these delicate compacts is lovely gothic black and purple colors with a silver and purple butterfly emblem on top! Inside the powder has a slight shimmer to it and a purple puff that carries the strong, sweet, gorgeous scent of roses! Tre Chic!
I’m quite pleased with these powders! It’s just the right amount of shimmer that you aren’t over doing a look. The texture is soft and perfect in all ways! And how cute to whip this out of your bag for quick touch ups right?
The colors available are a pale pink/white (01), a beige/peach (02), and a darker pink (03).
The Muse ended up going with 01 and 03 as 02 didn’t appeal to her.
Overall these are a fantastic little find from the Royal Romp Collection and worth a peek or a purchase! They are limited edition so get ’em while to getting is good ðŸ˜‰
