Stash Spotlight: Majolica Majorca Majolook Palettes

untitled

I have a serious disease when it comes to collecting, hoarding, and stashing away crazy amounts of Majolica Majorca Majolook Palettes.

Majolica+Majorca+Majolook+12

Even the ones that suck somehow end up in my arsenal of insanity. Is it a sin to collect palettes I don’t even use? Am I going to hell?

I think I pretty much have ever Majolica Majorca Majolook Palette released over the course of the past few years. Many people will beg to to say that Majolook palettes aren’t as good as Majorca Majolica singles or not as great as many other releases but honestly about 85% of the ones I have, I absolutely adore.

The colors always work well together, the liner that comes with some of them is pretty decent quality, and I kinda dig the compact palettes!

Hope you enjoy the photos of my sickness! I even included some of the Majolica Majorca Majewel Palettes, my flavorites!

How about you?

Happy Syu Wa Wa Powder Wash Review

Are you tired of powder washes yet? The Muse has featured three already in review and today she’ll bore you further with her very favorite powder wash.

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+1

Now do keep in mind the only reason she loves this one is because it’s called Happy Syu Wa Wa, seriously does the name not alone make you giddy or is it only me?

Happy Syu Wa Wa is created by B&C and runs around $4-$5 USD or sometimes higher depending on where you purchase. It’s a basic powder wash for removing makeup, simply add a small amount to water, rub together and wash your face.

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+4

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+6

One good plus side of this particular powder was is it produces a rather rich, almost carbonated lather that looks like a foam and really does a good job of moisturizing my face as well as removing my makeup.

It boasts that it can boost blood circulation for softer, smoother skin but count me not believing that much, let’s not get crazy now!

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+2

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+3

It’s perfectly good for all skin types as it doesn’t strip skin or leave it dry plus if you happen to have oily skin it does a good job of mattifying skin but no fear for dry skin types as you won’t experience dryness. It’s completely unscented so if you like your cleansers sans scent you’ll be all the happier with this.

For the price it’s a rather good, basic powder wash without any bells or whistles. I’m a particular fan of the foaming action which is why I tend to buy it when I run low but aside from that it doesn’t have anything huge going for it that makes me want to urge you to go out and grab it for yourself.

If you can find it cheap I highly recommend trying it out as it’s a nice basic powder plus who can’t love that name, Happy Syu Wa Wa, makes me want to dance!

Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream Review

The Muse loves the fact she can bring you a review for a BB Cream that’s 1. easily available online for purchase and 2. quite an inexpensive beauty budget find.

Which BB Cream am I talking about?

InnisFree Trouble Care BB Cream, available at Sasa and quite an inexpensive beauty find at $15.30 USD.

If you’re unfamiliar with BB Creams please read my introduction of BB Creams here.

Innifree Trouble Care BB Cream is actually quickly turning into HG (holy grail) material for me and that’s saying something as I’m quite picky with BB Creams. Strangely enough it’s not even made for my skin type as it’s for oily, acne skin types. Taking into account it was made for oily skin I was worried about using it on my dry skin but it turned out it worked like it absolute dream!

One of the first things I loved about the formula was the perfect shade of milky beige cream it was, this was a perfect fit for my skin and once I applied it was equally as light on as it adjusted to my tone perfectly. On top of the perfect shade selection it also had a beautiful formula that glided onto my skin, absorbed easily, and made my skin feel dewy and fresh. I was surprised as being made for oily skin I feared it would dry me out but it was wonderfully refreshing on and created a flawless canvas for my makeup. Everyone always raves to me about the benefits of using their BB Cream as a fabulous concealer but honestly I’ve never had success using BB Creams as an under eye concealer. However, Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream worked perfectly as both a foundation and a concealer! It really did a rather fab job of covering up all my woes including puffiness, fine lines, and dark circles.

This comes in a pump style bottle just like Etude House Magic BB Cream but I’m not loving this at the moment since the depressor has a bit of a problem where the slightest pressure distributes way too much product. You don’t need a ton of the cream to cover your face as it’s richly pigmented and sadly I find it amazingly wasteful that I can’t get it working correctly to pump out only a tiny amount. Each time I use it a big dollop comes flying out! Aside from this minor rant I absolutely love this one and Muse Approve it for purchase!

Innisfree+Trouble+Care+BB+Cream+12

museapproved

Why I loved it:

  • Richly pigmented, a little dab will do my entire face
  • Leaves me with a flawless, even complexion that’s younger, fresher, and healthier
  • Creates a perfect working canvas for my makeup
  • Acts as both a concealer and a foundation
  • Feels natural and breathable on my face
  • Formula is moisturizing and absorbs easily into my skin

Who I think would love it:

  • Anyone who wants a beautiful, fresh complexion
  • Anyone with Fair, Medium Fair, and Lighter Skin Tones
  • Those who have a certain dullness to their skin and want a bit of freshening up
  • Anyone who likes a multitasking product that gets you out the door faster!

I do think this is a near perfect product however it seemed to be quite rich for anyone with oily or acne skin even though the formula is made exactly for that skin type. Once it’s on your skin it’s quite light and natural feeling however during application it has a bit of a thick, creamy formula which worries me for people who fear clogged pores.

I used the Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream in my latest review FOTD for Prescriptives, I’ve included one picture below of me wearing it but if you’d like to see more do visit that post. Over the course of the next few days you’ll see me wearing it in other FOTD’s and I’ll def post to say as such.

Picture+018 400x300

Overall, it’s probably one of the better BB’s I’ve tried and I absolutely adore it and highly recommend picking one up. I’m thrilled I can offer an easily accessible BB Cream that’s available as an online purchase as normally BB’s I’ve featured in the past aren’t available stateside or online and if they are online it’s for a crazy amount of money.

All in all I loved this one and it’s definitely staying close by for daily cosmetic rituals.

The Muse loves it!

Sephora France Palette Green Idyll

Sephora+France+Palette+Green+Idyll

Although I’m not a fan of Sephora Brand cosmetics I can’t deny that the Palette Green Idyll from Sephora France is très assez!

Palette Green Idyll contains cream blushes you can use for cheeks or lips and four shimmer cream shadows for 19,90€. I like the fresh green shades mixed with golds and coppers! Quite lovely for Spring might I say. Euro is converting particularly well at the moment so I decided to order this palette as I’m really loving the design and colors, unsure if I’ll be disappointed or not but I decided what the heck!

Expect a review shortly!
