MAC Pro Blushes

Ah do insert a happy sigh right here my pretties!

Your Muse has just popped back from the MAC Pro shop and she got two fabulous blushes that she’s in lust with at the moment!

Around July or maybe June MAC Pro had introduced a few blushes and eyeshadows (Visit with Christine and you can see swatches of all the shadows and blushes that were released!) that were exclusive to Pro shops only. It’s been a while since I dragged myself into a MAC Pro store so I decided to hop in today as I needed a bit of cheering up!

My little eyes did indeed spy two gorgeous shades of blush that were introduced in the line I was just talking about above and those are Full Fuchsia and Salsarose.

I’m positive if I showed these two colors to a professional makeup artist they’d yell and scream at me for purchasing such loud, bright, vibrant colors for my complexion but bloody hell I’m so used to breaking every cosmetic law in the book that I firgure I might as well go on and not stop now!

Both colors are utterly illegal and it’s possible I could be arrested for purchasing these vibrant shades but like I said I’m just not caring! I love these!

Full Fuchsia is just what you’d expect from a fuchsia colored blush! Holy cow it might very well glow in the dark if I switch the lights off my dears! It’s quite full on! When I wear it I look like I’m stepped in from a really cold winter’s night and I just adore that look as it makes me appear younger than I am hehe…!

The shade is truly fabulous and I’m absolutely ecstatic to use it with some vibrant shade of fushica eyeshadow (Hey why stop at blush! I want the ENTIRE look!).

I’m not entirely sure how many people (or myself for that matter) can pull this color off but I’m positive you’ll (and I) will have tons of fun trying to find just the right look using it!

Now Salsarose is much more subdued than Full Fuchsia (not by much). Salsarose is a coral red color that again gives me the just out of the cold (or pinched) look! It’s just as vibrant and gorgeous as Full Fuchsia and I’m really looking forward to using it in a full makeup look!

Overall, I’m so saddened I hadn’t picked these up when they were originally released because truly they are gems! Several other colors I wanted were out of stock and are equally in your face vibrant and yum!

If you live near a Pro shop do stop in to peek at these! If not you can always dial any Pro shop in the US and they’ll promptly deliver these or anything else your little heart desires for $7 UPS shipping fee!

Your Muse(y) approves of full on blush colors and highly suggests having a peek at these to see if they are just right for you icon wink

Dita Von Teese for Frederick’s of Hollywood

I admit that I have a girl crush on Dita Von Teese. I can’t help myself! She’s gorgeous and perfect and I wish I was lucky enough to have won the same genetic lottery this girl did!

Dita is modeling the Frederick’s of Hollywood Holiday lineup and I’m having quite fun looking through the images on the site and being all star struck by the pretty pictures! I’m a huge fan and collector of pin-up art and I’m loving some of the images they have on the site!

Do have a visit and see for yourself what all my excitement is about!

And after that why not visit with Christine at Temptalia and read her interview (and listen to her podcast) with thee gorgeous Dita Von Teese, herself!

Lucky Christine! Count the Muse green with envy!

Jemma Kidd’s Jeweled Holiday Look

item1

Neiman Marcus has this interesting little collection available from Jemma Kidd! I do love the look of the model but the price tag of $36 per bot of glitter/cream shadow is downright obscene!

However, the good news is, that you can do pretty much the same thing using MAC Shadesticks, Paintpots, and some Pigment for a fraction of the cost!

But like I said I really dig the “Jeweled Holiday Look”!

Check out Stephanie’s blog by clicking here to view her haul!

She has up pictures from the Nordstrom MAC Exclusive that I didn’t get! I have Shimmertime pigment and the Softsparkle Pencil already which was why I didn’t purchase this set but now seeing Steph’s pictures I’m wanting this set!

You can also see the rest of her Holiday haul icon smile

Good purchases Steph! Thanks for sharing with us and the Muse can’t be held responsible if a ton of people want to kidnap Daisy after seeing her on your blog icon wink
