A few years ago I purchased Laura Mercier Brightening Powder and hated it. Honestly, this stuff was pointless to me. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I ended up not liking it at all.
Flash forward a year or so later and it started to become my right hand lady to use in conjunction with my concealer. Go further forward and Bobbi Brown’s Concealer Palette had a similar white powder which became a fast friend of mine.
And finally present day you’ll find me toting around Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder, it’s my HG (holy grail).
Moral of the story? I’ve gotten older and appreciate brightening powders in a major way. They not only set concealer but they really do brighten up the eye area and create a more flawless finish under my eyes. Granted, in my opinion, if you’re younger you might not experience the same results but if you’re in your late 20′s, 30′s or older, a brightening powder is essential to have in your beauty arsenal in my opinion.
Most recently Sofina Aube Couture Designing Highlight crossed my path. I’m a fond fan of Japanese brand, Aube, so I was all about trying out their brightening powder….

“Are you the Spirit, sir, whose coming was foretold to me?” asked the Muse.
The voice was soft and gentle. Singularly low, as if instead of being so close beside her, it were at a distance.
“Who, and what are you?” the Muse demanded.
“I am the Ghost of Christmas Collections Past.”
The Muse is quite fond of rehashing her past and remembering collections that caught her fancy over the years. Take a step back in time with her and remember Holiday Collections from 2007 that brought joy and excitement to us all!
The Muse has always had a special fondness for Aube Shower Jewelry Eyes, just the name along has been an endless source of joy and amusement for this Muse and she did so love and adore the Aube Shower Jewelry Eyes Holiday Palette in EX02. Cool shimmering shades of light blue, white, and brown topped with a grayish liner created the perfect sophisticated holiday eye! With the release of the palette Aube also gifted us with two loose shimmering powders which came in a lovely little glass bottle! Truly a Holiday Collection that excited this Muse!
Step into my past and check out the Aube Holiday Collection 2007 Review
On the heels of Aube’s release came Majolica Majorica’s Holiday Collection which granted our Christmas wishes and brought to us two shimmering Majolook Palettes that would later become my very favorite shades when brought together with my other MJ palettes. Keeping in the theme of sparkling colors MJ also released a shimmering silver mascara overcoat and a sparkling white face, eye, and body powder! This collection has since topped the Muse’s list as a favorite collection released from Majorca Majolica!

Jill Stuart always keeps a special place in my heart even though many releases are quite repetitious of colors past. This year I didn’t feel the need to indulge in the Holiday Coffret but last year I did get tempted by all the sparkling, light hues of the Christmas palette!

Although the Muse sometimes gets a bit ranty and disappointed over Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks she’s almost always on the bandwagon to purchase a new one, especially limited edition ones, as soon as they release. Last year she dove fully into her purchase of the Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick and although she never truly made proper use of it she still looks at it fondly and is happy it graces her collection.

This year the Muse liked but didn’t love the Bare Escentuals Ruby Collection but last year she fondly recalls loving each and every release that Bare Escentuals graced us with! The Holiday Collections from BE last year were something that the Muse still can’t forget!
The crisp coolness of the Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection thrilled the Muse to bits and she still gets hyper each time she whips out her BE Diamond Gossamer powder!
A tale and a review of Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection
Following closely behind Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection was the QVC release of Bare Minerals bareGold Luxury Color Collection and soon after the Nordstrom release of Bare Escentuals Pure Platinum Collection!
The amount of gossamer powder that the Muse ended up hauling with each gift set should last her well into the years to come!

The Muse let the holiday get away from her this year and in doing so she forgot a few small pieces here and there she wanted to pick up! The NARS Holiday Palette this year was on this Muse’s list but never quite made it into her cart (maybe soon) but she does so remember getting her NARS Night Series Palette last year and holding it in her greedy, sweaty palms as she gleefully smiled down at it!
Drool over a review on the NARS Night Series Palette
Thinking back on the Lavshuca Winter Make Collection the Muse recalls her excitement however she does feel kinda let down that the cardboard palettes from this collection didn’t fair well into 2008! But it doesn’t keep her from recalling how truly lovely and brilliant she thought they were when she first laid eyes on them.

To this day the mystery behind Stila’s “Asia” Only palettes amuses this Muse…Asia only? What? Huh? Confuddled am I! Even though the mystery remains the Muse still loving caresses each of those palettes as they brought back her beloved Stila girls! The packaging was too delightful to resist and the Muse pleads with Stila please more Stila girls! Some of us, after all, miss them crazily!
Enjoy a review on the release of Stila “Asia” Only Palettes from last Holiday Season!
Disappointment sometimes reigns supreme with MAC Holiday if you’re an old school collector but the Muse does still give thanks and praise for the release of the MAC Royal Assets Metallic Eyes Palette!

It wasn’t too much of a problem falling deeply in love with a few items from MAC’s Antiquitease Color Collection. The Muse was particularly thrilled to bits and maybe pieces too by Red Romp Lipglass, Queen’s Sin Lipstick, and Uppity Fluidline! The Muse sends blessings to MAC each day for introducing to red lippie items that actually work well for this Muse!

Diamonds were a girl’s best friend this year and they happened to be just as friendly last year when the Muse got her claws into the Givenchy Diamantismme Holiday Collection! To this day the Givenchy Prisme Solitaire All Over Diamond Powder holds a special place of honor on my vanity!

Aube Gloss Frutina are an absolute staple item of mine and even though I’ve reviewed them prior to this I thought they deserved a revisit considering a new selection has been released for Summer (Visit with Carleen and check out my love of Gloss Frutina at Girl Gloss!)
The original Gloss Frutina line up from last year included a healthy dose of shades where as this year the collection was cut down to a mere four shade selections. Even though the shades were limited this season they did have their own unique difference that the prior release did not sport.
This year the collection was not only scented with exotic fruit and food flavors but included a pleasant taste as well. I’ve quite fond of mentioning and re-mentioning the fact that many Japanese gloss brands fail to flavor their glosses. I’m always shocked to hear how many people actually hate flavored glosses where as I always love them and prefer my glosses have some sort of flavor. The new glosses range from orange flavoring to apple flavoring and more so I was quite in nirvana when I heard about this!
The formula on these pretty much remains the same as the previous release with very minor differences. Although in the packaging the gloss appears to be a creamy lip color and pigmented that’s not the case. The texture is quite a good deal thicker and creamier than the prior release and I’m actually enjoying this formula much better. Pigmentation isn’t fantastic sadly although you can build sheer color up on your lips the best bet is to stain your lips prior to use to get the most out of the gloss. Each gloss contains a very faint shimmer of gold or silver but nothing overpowering just enough to give your lips a delightfully shiny, shimmery look.
The packaging has changed very slightly with the glosses sporting a brand new pinkish lilac top. This new top is quite lovely considering it matches the palettes beautifully. It still contains the same crystals embedded into it as well which is a nice, elegant touch. The prior release was identical aside from the fact that top was silver.
As I mentioned earlier these do have a gorgeous scent and flavor. EX03 is a creamy shimmering coral shade that tastes like Blood Orange and Rosemary. The idea of combining oranges and rosemary may sound unappealing but I assure you the taste and smell is very pleasant! EX04 is a gorgeous, popping true pink that tastes like Berries and Mint. EX05 shimmering, nude, natural plum beige combination that tastes like lemongrass and plum. And lastly EX06 is a nude beige that tastes like caramel apple.
My favorite of the four shades would have to be EX04. It’s such a beautiful pop of pink and with a very sheer layer of lip stain under it my lips look quite gorgeous sporting this!
Aube did a rather great job with the new line up of Gloss Frutina and I’m glad I indulged in all four colors as they were well worth adding to my beauty stash!
Aube Gloss Frutina are most definately Muse Approved for purchase!

It’s hot outside but you can keep yourself cool by exploring my Winter 2007 review of Aube’s Holiday Collection!
I’m a big fan of the Aube Frutina Lipglosses that were released last year and the good news is this year they are making a guest starring appearance in Aube’s Early Summer release Collection!
My very beautiful mate, Iris, reported on these earlier in the month and I felt myself getting all hyper at the prospect of not only new colors but from what I’m understanding new flavors!
BLESS BE the Japanese have heard my prayers and have answered them! Flavored Lipgloss! Hooray! Hooray! I’m one for ranting at the lack of flavor in a majority of gloss brands on Japanese shores so this is exciting!
Each gloss is LE and scented in exotic combinations but I’m not entirely sure if they are “flavored” as well! So here’s to hoping right?
Orange is orange and rosemary scented, Pink is berry and mint (mmm sounds great), dusky pink is plum and lemongrass, and finally the beige is apple caramal and chamomile (please see Rouge Deluxe for the original information about these releases!).
Each gloss is 2100 yen each and well worth the price tag in my opinion. The color selection looks fabulous compared to last year’s glosses. They appear almost frosty this time around however sometimes the swatches aren’t so brilliant so can’t go by that until I actually see them in person.
Since I enjoyed these so much I thought I’d combine a mini review here from the glosses I do have from the previous release!
I really like these and they definately fall into a favorite category for me. One thing I really like about them is the applicator. The applicator is a sponge but it’s a large sponge and for some reason or another it saturates really well with the product so you get a nice bit of the gloss on it for smoothing onto your lips! I’m not sure if it’s the applicator or the formula but it just smooths on amazingly well for a gloss! I always struggle with sponge applicators as I’m constantly redipping where as with this I only need one dip and I’m good to go! These are a tiny bit on the sheer side so I definately suggest layering them to deepen the color on your lips as one stroke will get you a nice glossy look but not enough color to really pop so a bit of redipping and building the color up will give you an excellent pay off and beautiful look!
The texture is not sticky or tacky at all. It feels perfect on and has a pretty good water base because the gloss just slides on beautifully creating a very natural feel on your lips but NOT the type that’s sliding off onto your chin!
Sadly, as with almost all Japanese glosses I’ve tried, these lack any taste or flavor. I enjoy flavor in my gloss but this is great if you’re hating that. The color selection last year came in about 12 shades I believe and a few were LE but not all. These new releases will all be LE so that’s a plus!
The packaging is definately pleasing as each gloss has tiny crystals in the top! Very pretty!
These particular shades being released appear more pigmented! We shall see! Very excited for the collection to hit shops so I can lay my greedy hands on some!
Love Aube Frutina?
Tell the Muse!
At the rate I’m going I could have reviewed Aube’s Holiday/Winter Collection next season! Sorry about the delay getting this out!
I’ve had this collection for a while and I haven’t yet tried any of it but last night I decided to finally crack it open and take a peek at the colors!
When the collection came onto the scene I wasn’t too tempted but later on I decided that I needed to add some of it to my beauty arsenal!
They released a pressed powder with this that a friend of mine was unable to locate sadly so I missed out on that! Out of all the goodies I only ended up with three items which were the newest Jewerly Shower Eyes and the two loose shimmering powders!
The palette is quite gorgeous although not what I expected. Upon seeing the promo images it appeared the model was sporting a white sparkling baby blue look but upon getting the palette I learned the colors are a tad bit different and it left me slightly puzzling over the best way to get her look but that hasn’t swayed me from loving it!
The main color in the palette is a cream gold sparkle followed by a beige bronze color and a dark chocolate liner color. The Shower part of the palette (and star of the shower in my opinion) is the light blue gold infused cream color! It’s a beautiful shade and it really sparks up the main colors of the palette! I’m not going into detail about application here but if you’re interested in understanding how the palette works do click here to review my main review on Aube’s Jewelry Shower palettes! My sole rant about the palette was the packaging. I was slightly disappointed that the packaging wasn’t the standard shiny metallic style. It seemed they changed the compact to a matte finish instead of the regular shiny metallic compact! I really liked the pretty pink shimmer to the old compacts!
Old Packaging vs New Packaging
The palette sold very well in Japan from what I understand as my mate had a difficult time locating it upon it’s release!
The other two items I got were the loose shimmering powders which come in a nice glass bottle. I really love the presentation on these and the packaging is ultra cute however application is a bit messy! The powders come in a nail polish style bottle but they do not have an attached applicator. I thought this would come with a spatula applicator or a brush of some sort attached to the bottle topper but that’s not the case sadly. In order to apply you have to tip the bottle while stopping it with a finger tip and then lightly dab the powder where you want it! It’s a wonderful silky, sparkly powder that can used on your face, cheeks, or body however application is a tad bit messy with just a fingertip for applying. I guess you can use a really slim brush to fit into the bottle and take a little powder out at a time but I’m still wishing these came with an applicator of their own! The two shades available were gold and pink and both are well worth getting as they are truly beautiful shimmering shades!
Overall, I really like this collection and I’m glad I decided to get some of it! I highly recommend at least nabbing the palette if you have the means of locating it!
Have this collection?

Here in the US we have our fair share of gorgeous cosmetics but you know that my heart always lays with the gorgeous collections that my most favorite Japanese brands put out for the Holiday season!
What better way to learn all about what’s coming out this season then visiting with the Muse’s very good mate Iris at Rouge Deluxe!
Iris has been making the Muse very happy with all her posts about the goodies that Lavshuca, MJ, Paul and Joe, Gransenbon, and many other brands have in store for us this Christmas Season!
Some of the items I am looking forward to this Holiday Season are included in this little blog entry!
The entire Majorca Majolica collection! Iris has just posted the details and the Muse is drooling in delight at what’s being offered!
Two (not one but two! Celebrate good times come on!) new Majolook Line Impact palettes! Oh my and one looks purple with shimmery bits and pieces! Go right ahead and count the Muse in as being excited about these! If you’d like a look at past Majolook palettes please see my prior blog Spolight on Majorca Majolica by clicking here.
Lash Freeze Glitter Mascara! OH.MY.GOD! You know I want this don’t you? Count me in for two of these please! I love the old glitter mascara they introduced and this is on my MUST MUST MUST HAVE TO HAVE OR DIE LIST! Oh sorry was I being a bit too dramatic? Glitter does that to me.
And finally Snow Carat Face Powder which sounds like something very yummie that I must have as well
MJ looks like it’s coming out with quite a gorgeous range for Christmas! You can see the pictures, prices, and first impressions from Iris by visiting her here.
Next up on the list is Lavshuca’s two new Holiday palettes! The packaging on these looks adorable! You can see both by clicking here and here. Puffy’s back as Lavshuca’s model for the palettes! Yes, I know I know everyone is groaning but the Muse likes Puffy! I’m not entirely sure I’m loving her hair in these promo images but I still think she looks gorgeous! Anyway enough babbling about Puffy back to the palettes! The palettes are a bit weird in color as these appear more Autumn than Winter however they both look quite nice and too good to use! Beauty Vault anyone? They consist of three strips of shadows and two lip creams! Yum the Muse is writing her Letter to Santa now!
Please bring me two each of the new Lavshuca palettes and I’ll be sure the cookies are extra good this year! Promise!
Much love, the Muse!
Sonia Rykiel has caught my eye with the sparkling face powders they are introducing for the season! You can click over here and see them. I’m thinking all three need to make an appearance under my Christmas tree!
Aube Christmas line looks pretty darn nice as well! The new Jewelry Shower eye palette has caught the Muse’s eye! If you’d like to see the past Jewelry Shower eyes click here.
My Japan/Asian wish list is growing quickly and I’m happy that most of my US shopping has been done (aside from the MAC bits that have to make an appearance). The Muse has to go count her pennies and see about making all these wonderful items her very own
Visit with Iris on Rouge Deluxe for your Japanese Beauty fix but don’t say I didn’t warn you! Japanese makeup makes you broke and poor kids! Don’t be annoyed when the Muse says “I told you so!” when she hears your wallet screaming in pain!
Look for these at your favorite Japanese online shops starting around the end of the month and the beginning of November!
I wannaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa here you guys talk! Comment! Tell me what you are getting this year from these lines or other Japanese lines!

When life brings you lemons, I say squeeze a blog out of ‘em and make lemonade!
It’s a LONGGGGGGGG night my friends and sleep has taken another holiday on me! Indeed, it has! I’m serious! It’s gone off to some island and is taking in the sun! It might even be scoring with hot chicks (I’m making that part up)!
Hell, the last time sleep took off on me I started blogging to Jonny’s mum! Whom, hasn’t replied to me yet! Hint Hint! Nudge Nudge! It’s ok. I’ll be over shortly and you can make me a nice cuppa and tell me all his embarressing moments! My ears are open!
When sleep is on holiday it’s a darn good time to blog about my favorite topic…..go on now…..you know what it is dontcha?
That’s right! Make-up!!!!!!! Before I carry on with my blog of great importance I will say that I am sorry I’ve been remiss in the couture department! Summer fashions aren’t as appealing to me as Winter ones so you’ll see me blogging way more about couture in the Fall and Winter months than you will in the Summer!
That said…let’s move on to the good stuff!
My lovely, sweet, gorgeous, amazing, beautiful, and loving friend Mai is coming from Japan to stay with me shortly. Hi Mai! I know you read this lovie!
I got a package from Mai this pass week! Mai is my asian cosmetic crack dealer. She is, it’s true. Don’t worry her english sucks so right now she’s scratching her head and possibly her arse and wondering what a crack dealer is (don’t worry she can take a joke and loves when I tease her)! Love you Mai!
Within this gorgeous, amazing, bright, shiny, huge package, there be treasure maties! Oh my was it ever the package of all packages! I had asked Mai to pick me up some bits, bobs, and a little of this and that! By the time I was done I had raked up a bill with Mai that could put my first born child through college for the next four years of his life. Somehow, I convinced myself that it was ok to spend that much money on cosmetics because…because….I dunno how I convinced myself it was ok! Let’s not dwell on that right now!
Mai is now happily sitting on a Paypal payment from me that’ll fund her morgage for a year!
Yes yes I know I know! You want to see the amazing items I got don’t you? Greedy little buggers aren’t you?
Aube Sofina Limited Edition Fruitina Lipgloss
These are awesome! I’m well chuffed and disappointed I didn’t order 10 more! Super duper glossy and shimmering! I just didn’t like the fact that they weren’t flavored. That was somewhat crummy! They taste sorta yuk! But I guess I can deal with it! Those are real Swarvoski crystals embedded in the top! Pretty neat right?
Lavshuca Jewel Lipstick
Really pleased with these as well! I was shocked that it turned out these are NOT full size lipsticks! They are mini ones! Very cute and very portable! I was under the impression they were larger! Aside from that they are great! I picked the color selections from my mate PJ’s blog and I’m glad I went with them because they are both great colors! Can’t go wrong with PJ! I want more of these as well! They go on quite sheer and are just a blush of color for your lips! Nice product!
T’estimo Eyeshadow Singles
I’m a T’estimo whore! But my entire time purchasing T’estimo cosmetics I’ve never once purchased an eyeshadow single! These are my first! Not much to say really! They are just as wonderful as anything you find in the palettes! Possibly even nicer to have a single color outside the palette theme! Really enjoy how sparkling and shimmery they go on!
These were introduced as part of the summer lineup! Rubbish. I purchased the mosiac blushes prior to these and was disappointed! I should have known better! Not even a sheer wash of color from these! Barely pigmented! Absolute garbage! Up on E-bay tomorrow! Was kinda hoping for a better product! Oh well! Win some, lose some!
Shiseido Maquillage Glossy Gloss
There are certain brands of cosmetics that are like bread! You go to the store, you buy bread, you eat the bread and it’s good! It’s rare that you buy bread that you hate (hell take it from a round girl, carbs are GOOD)! Shiseido is like bread! Anything you buy from Shiseido is an absolute winner! You can’t really go wrong. It’s a solid cosmetic brand that makes outstanding products. These glosses are just what they say “glossy gloss”! Intense shine and gloss! Really just perfect!
Lavshuca Loose Face Powder
This is an interesting little find! I use a unique little product, that I won’t reveal since I have to have some secrets, to lighten my face. I purchased this as a possible replacement! And I’m quite delighted to say it can’t be used in the same manner as I use the other shhhh secret product! I’m delighted because this is actually a shimmering powder that makes my cheeks and face look all sparkle like and lovely! Really like this one!
Jill Stuart Blush
Some Jill Stuart Blushes I didn’t have! I have almost all the colors now! These were just as great as all my others
Jill Stuart Brilliance Eyes Summer 2007 Eyeshadow Palette
This is the 5th palette they introduced for the Brilliance Eyes collection! I own them all and I love them! This one however was…mmm slightly disappointing! I was not loving the black color! Why they felt the need to put in black is beyond me! But hey the rest are cool
Jill Stuart Loose Powder
Gorgeous shimmering powder! I already have this in the Shine and Natural colors and this is by far my favorite! Sparkle! Weeeeeee!
The Pretty Boxes Jill Stuart Arrived In!
Not much to say about these! I have a zillion already and these are just some extra colors I wanted! Sheer, glossy and wonderful as always!
Again, not much to say! I have a ton already but wanted a few more Great colors! Shimmering, glossy, and sheer! These are what MAC slimshines hope to be like when they grow up!
So that pretty much concludes our tour of my latest purchases! Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed posting it! Drop me an e-mail if you have questions about where to purchase these items or what countries they are available in! My ear is yours! I’m always pleased to help!
The mail has arrived and within it treasures cometh!
My friend Mai will be here shortly from Japan! Oh my I’m so excited I may squeal! Anyway….I had her run around most of Tokyo to do a buncha purchases for me! Shoes, Cosmetics, etc…you name it and I asked that poor, poor girl to bring it over with her! I think I might be more eager to get the things I asked her to purchase than actually seeing her. I’m kidding I’m kidding!
About a week and a half ago I was browsing on around the internet, like the little mad demon shopper I am, and I happened across Aube Glamorous Jewel Powder! Now it contained the world Glamorous in it which can only mean that I needed to buy it, like now, right away!
I paid an obscene amount of money for this stupid powder because I didn’t want to ask poor Mai to do a last minute purchase for me when she was so busy packing and getting ready for her trip to see me!
Well…you can only guess that it has indeed popped up in my mail today. The Powder!!!!!! Weeeeeee!
Aube is a branch of Sofina. Sofina,as mentioned in previous blogs, is quite a fantastic company that makes some amazing face powders! I expected no less than awesome from this powder regardless of the fact that I paid double what the everyday drugstore in Japan would charge. To me, it was priceless!
I’m so properly chuffed with this item! It comes in a gorgeous little compact complete with powder puff, it sparkles, shines, and shimmers Oh my! It’s quite possibly the best shimmering powder I’ve come across. I’ve tried many but this could turn into a favorite of mine! Jill Stuart makes a similiar sparkling powder but truly this is far better!
You can use this just about anywhere really! Bosom, cheeks (the ones on your face that is), eyes, arms, shoulders, etc…anywhere you think you’d love a bit of sparkle you can dab this on! I would say a little goes a long way with this! I’m so in lust with it at the moment I went ahead and asked someone to pick me up the other color they have which is a gold one!
I know I know! You’re tired of my babbling and you want pictures….ok….here ya go!
I tried showing how a bit of it on my hand but you can’t see very well sadly!
