Pout’s Demise

The Muse’s friends at Kiss and Makeup had reported earlier that Pout was taking a nose dive and going bye bye!

The line is super cute and I’m super sad to see it go icon sad

The good news is they are having a SALE! The entire line is 50% off but even with that great discount the items are still somewhat high in cost so I’d definately suggest waiting a bit longer and seeing if the sale takes a nose dive to 75% off!

You never know!

I’ll mourn the loss of Pout but I sure will do a little jig when I can nab some great Pout at sale prices!

Can’t wait? Visit Pout for the ongoing sale!

I have quite a collection of B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful perfume and cosmetics! If you don’t know about B you’re really missing out!

B is Lush Cosmetic’s younger, glamorous little sister! It’s a vegan line of cosmetics, bath goodies, and perfumes created by (with a little help from a buncha other people) Mark Constantine, Lush’s owner!

B Cosmetics are legendary for bringing the glam and gorgeous to cosmetics with cute little bejeweled pots of blush, eyeshadows, etc…They also do an ultra glam line of perfumes in vintage bottles!

I may do a spotlight on my B stash this week sometime but until then I bring you some great gifts from B that are definately gorgeous!

Two sets introduced this year are the Chocolate Box Sets which contain your choice of three or six eyeshadows plus an eyeshadow brush!

You can select the colors of your choice that goes into the box! Weeee! How very fun!

B Shadows are pretty good quality. They do not contain much shimmer but they are extremely pigmented and go on smooth with long lasting results! They come in vibrant, bold shades that are simply beautiful!

So these as a gift or for yourself are pure perfection!

Lavshuca Winter Make Palettes 2007

Yay! I got my Lavshuca Holiday Palettes today! These actually arrived I think Friday or Saturday but I was unable to collect them until today from the post office icon wink

They are now in my greedy, sweaty little hands and I couldn’t be more pleased!

The palettes came in the cutest little gift box and if you happen to have a Japanese cosmetic lover in your life these would be the perfect gift!

They come packaged in separate parts. One part is the empty compact and the second part is your lipgloss, eyeshadow, and applicators. I assume that they package the parts separately for beautiful display reasons, it also keeps things nice and tidy during shipping, and finally it’s just good, old plain fun to put it all together into the compact yourself!

The compact isn’t a hard shell it’s a durable cardboard which may sound worrying because you might be thinking this means it’s on the cheap and shoddy side. Fear not! The cardboard is quite sturdy and not cheap in the least. It’s covered in either a pink or gold foiling depending which color you end up purchasing with the lovely Lavshuca emblem on top.

Picture+061

Inside there are two separate spots for the sponge eyeshadow applicator and lipbrush on either side with the eyeshadow and gloss smack in the middle. The Lavshuca emblem again graces the inside top of the palette.

I haven’t yet tried any of the colors but from what I can see the strip of eyeshadows are quite shimmery and gorgeous and I’m hoping it isn’t a spray of glitter but a sparkle straight to the core. You’ll also receive a sparkling lipgloss and a matte lipcream.

The size of the shadow strip is a tiny bit disappointing because it’s really NOT a whole lot of product but if you generally collect tons of palettes and shadows you won’t mind too much because chances are you won’t go through this very quickly! However, if you don’t own a ton of different shadows and you’ll be using this daily chances are you’ll get through it very quickly as it’s not a whole lot of product!

I have to say that at the moment I find them both very pretty but I do favor the 02 palette better than the 01.

02 eyeshadows consist of a white shimmering gold color, a shimmering yellow gold, and a shimmering brown with gold specks. The gloss is a sparkling golden brown color while the lipcream is a orange brown. Layering the gloss and lipcream will surely make a striking combo!

Picture+059

01 is just as pretty and consists of a shimmering white with, it appears, to me, pink, a shimmering pink shade, and a darker purple. The gloss is a sparkling pinkish purple affair while the lipcream is rosebud pink.

Picture+060

Overall, I’d say they are most definately worth a pick up! The Lavshuca Winter Make Palettes are Muse Approved for purchase!
