We all need a little gossip in our lives. The Muse thrives on good gossip…oh should I not admit that do you think?
Banila Co knows that we all LOVE a little juicy gossip which could be why their latest color story is entitled Gossip Girl!
Be prepared for some great pops of color!
The star of Banila Co Gossip Girl would be the new face and eye palette which features a lovely pink blush and three shades of shadow! Loves it!
A new marble blusher is also available in the shade Pleasure which is a cool shimmering pale pink! Sweet!
My personal favorite is the new dual shadow which features a bright pink and orange that clash wildly together. I absolutely love this duo and def want to pick it up.
A popping shade of green lip plumper anyone? Could work you never know!
Pair it all up with a bright pink lippie to complete your gossipy look!
The collection looks quite nice and I’m particularly feeling the love for that shadow duo, so gorg! Rather a nice late Spring release from Banila Co.

It’s that special time of the year kids when all the Asian brands begin releasing new base makeup. I kinda like and don’t like this time of the year. I like it because it’s interesting exploring new base makeup options and I don’t like it because Summer seems ages away which means a longer wait for Summer Collection details! I also don’t really like changing my base makeup around alot so I’m always somewhat fascinated at how many lines revamp there base line to include a slew of new powders, foundations, etc….
This isn’t to say I don’t like new base makeup I just feel like I switch around alot lately since I’m always searching for that perfect base makeup.
Anyway, the moral of the story is that Etude House has a brand new base line up which also includes a few color options as well. It’s somewhat unusual to have a new base makeup and a color collection released together which is one more reason to absolutely adore Korean cosmetic brands as the Japanese would never consider doing both at the same release.
Etude House Precious Mineral Skin Project looks interesting enough but I’m doubtful it can compete with last year’s Lovely Face champagne.
Jump ahead for the deets.
Etude House Precious Mineral Skin Project hmmm sounds like the Greenlight Project or something. “Be a part of the Etude House Precious Mineral Skin Project….” Whoa, awesome. Aside from the funny name the collection has promise.
Happy is a Muse who’s presented with new Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream. I’m a big fan of Etude House Magic BB Cream so this looks quite similar! Wants it!
A new mineral setting powder also being released.
Etude House Precious Mineral Make Essence is a new primer.
Etude House Tear Drop Liner which is quite similar to what was released with the Lovely Face Collection. This is a glitter liner meant to lighten up the eye area!
A new highlighter for applying to cheeks and face for a bit of a Spring glow!
And finally two new color options which are the Etude House Fresh Cherry Blusher Duo and Etude House Fresh Cherry Lip Tint quite like Etude House Plumping Lip Tint
I’m kinda leaning towards snagging just about everything in the collection as it all looks rather good. I’m particularly liking the blusher duo and lip tints!
How about you?

The Muse didn’t realize how big Labello would be when she posted a review on some Labello Lipbalms a few weeks ago! Suddenly her inbox is filed with comments and questions about Labello.
So at many a reader request I decided to do some more Labello reviews. One in particular that comes with a Muse Approval for purchase in Labello Caregloss and Shine!
Find out why after the jump!
There are only two shades of Labello Caregloss and Shine which does so make my life easier. As much as I love Labello it does get a bit overwhelming when it comes to the variety of a simple lip balm! Sometimes taking away options for the Muse is a good thing otherwise she’d sit there and want every single color. In this case the best shade available is Pink Star! Amen for lack of colors! For once I’m relieved I don’t have to make difficult color selections.
I have a slew of reasons why I absolutely adore Labello CareGloss and Shine starting with the color! Pink Star is the perfect pink that makes lips look natural and pretty. It’s just such a flattering shade of pink that makes my lips look full, pouty, and very, very pretty. The shade has a certain fun feel about it and makes me feel girly! Probably the most important factor about Labello Caregloss and Shine is the formula which allows for endless hours of wear. The formula has a slight silicon feel but remains slippery and glossy with a shiny, mirror finish. The silicon aids the gloss in wearing quite long on your lips while having a very comfortable wear without a sticky or tacky feeling. The gloss keeps lips moist and heals chapped or dry lips all while giving a beautiful touch of pink to lips! How many healing lip products do you have lying around that heals lips and offers great color?!
Doesn’t it look soooooo pretty on my lips!?
If you’re wanting a long lasting gloss with beautiful color and the ability to heal dry, chapped lips look no further as Labello Caregloss and Shine has you covered.
A tried and true favorite for the Muse. Loves it!
A few readers have asked me where to get Labello online and I’m really not an expert as I have someone who ships them over from Europe for me but I do suggest trying E-bay or these shops:
Prices are sadly not retail and are nearly 50% higher than what you’d pay in Europe but Labello is such good quality it’s probably worth the increase.
I always get rather excited when I see Clio releasing new items as they don’t do so nearly enough!
Releasing a brand new base collection along with a point collection offers many options this season for perfecting skin and creating a colorful Spring look!
Much of the new base collection embraces anti-aging with Q10 to help promote fresher, rejuvenated skin.
Clio Collagen Essence Foundation firms and lifts skin.
Clio Collagen Essence Concealer firms and lifts skin under the eyes while concealing fine lines and dark circles.
Clio Collagen Essence Pact contains an SPF 22 and collagen boosting benefits to sooth skin and regenerate.
Clio Art Lip Gloss is available in 17 shades offers a clear sparkle with Vitamin E and C.
Housed in an deco lipstick case Clio Art Lipstick is a pigmented, moisturizing formula.
Clio Lip Plumping Pencil offers a high shine finish and a formula that plumps lips for a flirty Spring Pout!
Clio Art Shadow 1.5 embraces the old Clio shadow lie but with a new twist. A trio of shades instead of single color. Use all three shades to create a perfect Spring eye look!
Quite a nice selection of goodies from Clio for Spring 2009 me thinks. I already have a great deal of the single shadows from Clio and I’m absolutely loving the idea of trio. The base makeup all looks rather good as well particularly the concealer.
Although none of this is available within the US keep your eyes peeled and check up on Sasa as sooner or later the collection is available…a little late..but better late than not at all!
Remember when Pupa was all about those cute little animal shaped compacts? I remember having the Angel and the Devil…actually if I think about it I probably still do somewhere in the sea of forgotten makeup items on the bottom of my closet. Remember when it was sold at Sephora!?
It’s since changed a good deal in a great way aside from the fact it’s near impossible to find stateside.
Pupa Plastic Shine Collection embraces all the modern and leaves behind all aspects of kawaii that it used to sport. The collection features some bolder shades for Spring highlighted with softer cheeks.
Pupa Baked Eye Shadow in four new shades can be used wet or dry to create a vibrant Spring look. Pink, Blue, Green and Violet all offer popping color not just for Spring but anytime!
Pupa Luminys Eyeliner
Complete your look with perfectly matched liner!
Pupa Lip Perfection Splendor
Shiny liquid lipstick available in three shocking colors to create a ultra shiny lip look to compliment your bold eye look!
Pupa Baked Blush-On Illuminating Blush
Just a touch of healthy, natural highlight to cheeks and face will finish up your look!
I really love this collection, particularly the shadows. The line should be available as of now in Singapore, Japan, and various parts of Europe. For US residents keep checking Sasa as they tend to get collections just a bit later on the release.
What do you think?
