Annabelle Summer Collection 2009 Hydropolis

Loving all over Canadian Brand, Annabelle’s Summer Collection for 2009. Entitled Hydropolis the collection is a tiny release of three strip style eyeshadow palettes in three different shade selections!

Annabelle+Summer+Collection+2009+Hydropolis++111111111

Looks rather nice!

Click ahead for some face charts using the palettes!

The palettes look very nice and come with five strips of color in three separate shade selections. Aquatech is a cocktail of aquas and greens. Amberwave is made up of browns, oranges, and bronzes. And WaterLily is a combination of various pinks. I can’t verify price as these are exclusive to Canada however I’m sure they pop up on Evil-bay sooner or later if you’re interested!

10 Eye Shadows I Can’t Live Without

eyeshadows

Ahhh eye shadow. Bless be the woman who created eye shadow! The Muse has plenty of shades she loves.

Find out 10 she possibly couldn’t live without by clicking below!

Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Maui Wowie and Midnight Cowboy, these are golden, they shimmer, they contain heaps and heaps of sparkle, and I love ‘em. Can’t do without, no way, no how.



MAC LoveStone long since gone but big enough to last me into my next life! Swirling shades of beautiful maroon, red, hints of shimmering orange and gold…you get the point? Love!


I’ve done an ode to MAC FireSpot prior to this but it’s worth speaking of my great love again. Bright pigmented fiery orange, indeed it’s love!


Milani Runway Eyes in Beach Sand is full of shimmery gold, I see a trend developing. Best shadow that Milani carries, hands down. It’s Summer right? So sportin’ this all through those long, hot days!


ALL of the Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadows are to die for but the soft pink allure and shimmer of Ballet holds the Muse’s heart.


I remember my rave about Napoleon Eye Patrol in Private Angel when my blog was still new, not alot has changed in regards to my feelings for this shadow. Again, another shimmering shade of gold and oh so pretty!


I’ve been known to get excited about Vincent Longo Wet Diamond Eye Shadow. Verite is my fav shade from the collection, believe me I have ‘em all! Deepest army green around with plenty of sparkle.


B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful in Burke is always my fav eye shadow wash. Shimmering white makes the perfect prep for my bolder shadow shades!


Mattese N.Y.C. Shadow Dust in Queen is not only cheap as day old chips but gorgeous. The deepest shade of turquoise this Muse has ever had the pleasure of owning!


Those are my 10 Eye Shadows I can’t leave without! What are some of yours?

Tell ‘em!

IsaDora Summer Collection 2009: IsaDora Delirious

IsaDora+Summer+Collection+2009+IsaDora+Delirious+005

If being delirious means sporting super popping shades of shadow on my lids and lips I’m all over the brand new IsaDora Summer Collection Delirious!

Check it!

We can always count on IsaDora to give us a crazy cool palette for each season’s release, Summer happens to be no different with the IsaDora Eye Palette in Delirious. I’m literally delirious just staring at it! Bright shades of coral, blue, pink, yellow, and brown make up this bright hued palette.

Isadora+Summer+2009

The collection also has brand new shades of IsaDora Perfect Moisture Lipstick and 3-D Glitter Gloss plus a bronzing powder that was released with the early Summer Collection I told you about several weeks ago. Great selection of items but my eye is on the prize of that palette!

Interesting also is the release of IsaDora Delirious Eau de Toilette. This is a first as I’ve never seen a fragrance from them prior to this. Sparkling, fruity, and green so says the description, count the Muse curious she likes sparkling fruity blends!

Jelly Pong Pong Muffin and Meringue Gloss Set Review

I did so promise you a full review of the bits and bobs I got in my Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Gift Bags didn’t I? If you missed the post you can see it here.

Today I’ll be showing you Jelly Pong Pong Muffin and Meringue Gloss Set! Too cutes and loving it so far with a hiccup or too here and there.

Read it by clicking ahead…!

Housed in a jumbo pink and white striped box the new Jelly Pong Pong Muffin and Meringue Gloss Set contains two tubes of gloss. Loving the packaging so much on these. From the cute box they come in all the way to the very cute squeeze tube glosses I’m not sure what I adore most about these. The packaging of the glosses do not have an applicator so it’s a matter of dabbing on with your fingers or a lip brush. Squeeze, apply, and you’re good to go.

The set includes Muffin Gloss which is a light pale pink shade and Cherry Meringue which is a glossy berry stain. Both taste very nice although I’m leaning more towards Cherry Meringue as a fav for both taste and color. Muffin Gloss doesn’t really taste very muffin-like but more lemony. I didn’t really like Muffin’s color as it’s a very pale, nude pink. These aren’t very glossy and they feel a tad silicon like when they are on so I’m unsure if I’m in love with the formula or not at this point. I do like the sheer hint of red that Cherry Meringue gives to my lips and the burst of fruity cherry! Nice!

Overall, I think they are too cute and but I may be super bias about the formula since I adore the packaging so much. For a quick swipe and go they make a fine gloss although for a more fancy look you might prefer going with a MAC Lipglass or something a bit more substantial.

Cutes but needs a little work!

I’m wearing Cherry in my FOTD today which you can see here.

Anyone try these?

Tell the Muse!
