Guest Haul: Taryn’s JPMon Order

One of the Muse’s readers, Taryn, got her first haul from JPMon a few days ago and she was very generous to share pictures of all her goodies to make us green with jealously!

Oh my pretty! Sony CP Lipgloss, Rice Powder, Tons of Mascara, Tiffa, I’m hyperventilating!

Close up shot of Apple Lip Cream (These things are like crack for the Muse! I have the peach, apple, orange, etc…totally yummie! I dunno which I love more the hand cream version or the lip cream version)!

Fairy Drops Mascara HOLY COW! I want this! NOW! How has the Muse not heard about this? I’m the Queen of Japanese Mascara but never seen anything like this! Taryn tells the Muse that this stuff is “the awesome”! Obviously it’s on my wish list right now!

Thanks so much for sharing your haul with us Taryn!

Taryn ordered all her goodies by following my little tutorial from JPmon! You can click here to view it! I feel all special now because she said I was of great help with that tutorial *sniff* *blush*

Sweet Haul Taryn!

Thanks again for sharing!

Now if you’d give us a link for the Fairy Drops Mascara we’d all be forever grateful!

Bourjois Paris Ombre A Paupieres UK Colors: The Sequel

I’m still digging through my box of goodies from the UK! I happened across ANOTHER Bourjois Paris eyeshadow in Prune Intense. It’s a gorgeous deep purple that reminds me of MAC’s Entremauve Pigment but this is far more wearable for me as it shows a tad bit lighter and has some more shimmer to it!

Just beautiful!

I can’t wait to do an FOTD with this color!

Majolica Majorca Holiday 2007 Collection

I’m so utterly guilty of calling MJ Majorca Majolica sometimes! I utterly reverse the name! If you see me do that call me out on it as I’m bloody confused most days of my life!

Anyway!

I got my MJ haul a while ago and haven’t had a sec to blog about it. My most beautiful friend Iris has already gotten her haul from Japan and reviewed it. If you missed out click here to visit with Iris and read her impressions and review on the new Holiday set!

For me this is a must have set. It’s inexpensive plus it’s cute as a button so go you, now, get it!

First in the line up are the Limited Edition Majolook Eyeshadow Palettes in SV801 and PK122. Both are quite gorgeous!

SV801 and PK122

SV801 contains a shimmering white, a shimmering light silver, a darker silver, and an eyeliner. These are of medium pigmentation so really you can create a beautiful natural look with the palette but nothing too dramatic!

PK122 contains a shimmering cream white, a shimmering light pink, a shimmering darker pink, and an eyeliner. These colors are also of medium pigment and can create a very nice frosty winter look!

Both palettes are very pretty and I’m excited to try them out for a look!

Up next the MJ Snow Carat Powder which is very pretty! It’s a beautiful white sparkling powder that’s inexpensive and perfect for giving you a touch of sparkle on your cheeks and eyes! However, I’m not too thrilled that this has a rather large opening for distribution. It would be easier if it had a siffer style with tiny holes instead of a big large hole which will cause a ton of waste for me. I like to slowly build up sparkle not have a ton dumped on the puff! But overall it’s really cute and sweet! This quite reminds me of the Kesho Wakusei highlighter powder I got a few months ago! Click here to view the powder and compare!

And finally last but never least as this is my favorite item would be the MJ Lash Freeze. I was going to get two of these but decided one was plenty but now I’m wondering if I should have grabbed some more. This is a sparkling silver glitter base for your lashes. Apply your mascara as you normally would and add Lash Freeze on top to make your lashes sparkle and shimmer with little bits of Silver!

I really love Japanese overcoats and this is soon making an appearance on my favorite list as I love the easy comb applicator and the effect is brilliant! Quite an inexpensive version of Givenchy’s Lash Sparkles!

Overall, in my humblest opinion this is most definately a must have collection! It’s cheap, pigmented, and sweet! If you’re a grand collector of Japanese cosmetics you’re going to want all of this rather badly!

Got it already?
Want it?
Tell the Muse!

Bourjois Paris Ombre A Paupieres UK Colors

Yesterday I was telling you about an obscenely large package my mate Shaz sent me! Here’s something that was inside!

GASP! How gorgeous are these!? They are so much more vibrant than the colors we have here in the US! We have NONE of these colors available to us here and I’m just loving every single one!

Shhh don’t tell anyone I even tried the lighter and dark oranges for a blush (instead of a shadow) and they look great!

My eyes literally popped with the color when I tried these and they’ll be wonderful in the Summer! As much as I love Bourjois Paris their shadows are sometimes light but these are mega pigmented!

I’m so properly chuffed I may just squeal in excitement!
