Ahhh blessed relief. Let’s all let out a collection sigh of utter, blissful relief. My good friend Iris from Rouge Deluxe reports about the Lavshuca Fall Collection 2009 and what a pleasant surprise it is!
Finally something great to look forward to from Lavshuca this year.
With it’s disappointing release after release as of late Lavshuca has fallen into the do not buy list for the Muse. Look at Summer, utter disappointment there!
My last known purchase from Lavshuca was Summer 2008 and I do think, currency conversion aside, this is testimony how bad collections have been as of late from Japan. Because seriously if I’m not hauling something is terribly wrong.
But have no fear the Lavshuca Fall Collection 2009 is so something special to look forward to it appears. The floral motif and interesting color selection shown in the photo above is enough of a reason to get this Muse excited. I’m looking forward to how this develops and I’ll start saving my pennies as of now so I might indulge. Iris reports the following items will be released:
- Lavshuca Light Mix Eyes (5 Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Grade Color Eyes (1 New Shade Selection)
- Lavshuca Dual Prism Eyes (2 New Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Full Baloon Rouge (15 Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Rouge Star Classics (2 New Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Power Memory Eyebrow (2 Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Power Memory Eyeliner (1 Shade Selection)
- Lavshuca Pore Concealer Base
Count me excited for Fall to get here!

You ever have those very favorite products that seem so amazing, so great, so incredible that you feel like you couldn’t possibly live without them? Indeed, the Muse knows that feeling well!
Jump ahead for a few Beauty Items that I can’t live without.
Shills BB 6 in 1 BB Cream (review coming sometime soon) is something I can’t possibly live without. It’s one of thee best BB creams I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing! So much so that I’ve forsaken most every other BB Cream in my collection for it. This is love people.
Speaking of BB Creams no question that Etude House Magic Cream and InnisFree Trouble Care BB Cream are two of my other favs in the BB Cream world!
omg! I can’t think of three letters that explain how great Coralista is other than O M G. This pigmented peachy powder is my very favorite blush of all time.
On the topic of Benefit let’s not forget the awesomeness that is Thrrrob
and my staple product, Benefit Lemon Aid.
I find that lately I can’t live without the very beautiful Ella Dean’s Beautiful Twist Lip Balm
in Winter’s Cherry Snow Slushie Kisses. Who doesn’t like slushies? Especially cherry ones! Yum!
Although it’s sticky and tacky and ooey and gooey I probably couldn’t live without Lipstick Queen Shine Gloss
. It gives my lips such incredible slippery shine plus it makes them look twice the size! Loves it!
The day NARS Super Orgasm
entered my life I think the angel’s sung! What an incredible blush. Needs no commentary from me about it’s awesomeness.
I can’t live without Urban Decay Primer Potion and I don’t want to think about it not being in my life. ’nuff said.
Bobbi Brown Blush in Apricot entered into my collection quite by chance when I happened upon it at my local CCO. Ever after it’s been my staple blush and favorite shade!
Oh Bobbi your name is on my lips today! Let’s not forget how I went from feeling unsure about the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer palette
and quickly having it become a staple product for me. I NEED this in my life.
Shu you know how to treat my lashes right. The cadillac of lash curlers would be my trust Shu Uemura Lash Curler
, we be best buds.
Although it’s meant for aging skin I absolutely love Lancome Absolue Makeup
. Flawless perfection comes to mind after use!
Speaking of perfection that would also come in my jar of Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer
, nope can’t live without, can’t go for that!
Another beautiful foundation that graces my daily cosmetic regime would be Lavshuca Creamy Liquid Foundation
, we loves each other for about a year now with no end in sight!
It’s Summer again so the Muse is hauling out Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in Glided Gold.
Indeed, this product single handedly changed my mind about bronzers!
Life isn’t worth living without Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy in my life, golden perfection.
Mally Concealer System
, worth it’s weight in gold peeps.
Majorca Majolica Mascara
probably couldn’t live without that and not willing to try either!
Ok that’s Beauty Items that I can’t live without! Any of ‘em match yours? Name a few you can’t live without!
Well hmmm! Count me disappointed. Rumor of Lavshuca Lipgloss and it’s Summer release has been afoot on the Internet for ages now but I thought perhaps we’d get a palette or two a la last year’s incredible release.
Lavshuca has updated it’s website with the Summer Special section and it’s a pimp of old items and the brand new Lavshuca Lipgloss. Whoa. So that’s it?
Two looks, Clear Shiny and Clear Sweet, are shown on the site. Basically the looks are made up of old releases (blush, shadow, etc…) along with the new Lavshuca Lipgloss.
Well, I guess that means money saved this Summer. I can’t help but be slightly disappointed but what can you do? The Muse was under the impression maybe they’d extend further and slap us with a surprise palette or two. Doesn’t appear to be happening!
I’ll be bringing you a review of Lavshuca Lipgloss soon minus incredible, nonexistence palettes. Damn.
My stash of Lavshuca palettes has gotten considerably smaller over the years as they release more and more palette styles and colors that I am none too fond of. I believe the last time I indulged was last Summer. I’m hopeful this Summer we’ll have more of the same great palettes from Lavshuca rather than a rehash of terrible colors.
Until Summer the Muse hauled out some of her Lavshuca to do a Stash Spotlight on!
As I said Lavshuca has failed to catch my fancy as of late. Lord knows it’s an epic fail lately. I am so terribly eager for news of the Summer Collection to reach my ears (hopefully good news and not disappointing news!).
I’ve been collecting Lavshuca for a few years now and I embraced the brand new packaging with glee however I do miss the certain princess feel the brand used to sport however I’m still loving the new slicker clothes.
Could be the sparkle, the smallness of the palettes, or just the fact that it’s Japanese but Lavshuca has a special place in my heart even when it’s busy putting out crummy shades!
Here’s a few pictures of my stash of palettes!
Lavshuca lover yourself?
Longing for something better from Lavshuca?
Tell the Muse!
Lavshuca has updated it’s website with the new Spring Collection but the Muse is sadly confused considering she can’t navigate it too well at the moment.
Most of the collection is hid away somewhere deep in the website and I don’t have the time or the patience to look through it however the Muse highly suggests visiting with Kanebo directly to see what the deets are or seeing my other post about Lavshuca Spring 2009.
I did want to mention that the puffy girls are looking quite fluffy today..or is it me? I like the straightened hair but I’m unsure if this is the look for this particularly promo.
Hmmmm oh well random Musings from a Muse!
As I mentioned in my previous post I’ll probably avoid a majority of what is being released aside from one of the new palettes. I honestly fail to feel any excitement for Lavshuca lately as it’s too much of a rerun.
I keep hope that Summer will bring something exciting enough to keep me pacified enough to stop ranting about the lack of imagination lately with Lavshuca’s releases.
How about you?
Hauling any of it for yourself?
Tell the Muse!
