Good Luck recreating some of these! And if you’re successful do e-mail them to the Muse and she’ll feature them as a Guest FOTD!


GoSMILE 5 Senses Toothpaste Kit

I’m really anal about brushing my teeth.

I mean super anal.

I mean so anal that I am doing it three or four times a day.

I think when I was young my mum had somehow instilled in me the virtues of clean, sparkling teeth and it’s stuck with me every since.

Thanks mum!

In all seriousness I do have a thing for brushing my teeth quite a bit and the irony of it is I hate actually smiling with my teeth! I normally keep my mouth close lipped whenever I smile!

But that doesn’t prevent me from wanting a Hollywood sparkling white smile that might have Colgate knocking on my door asking might I appear in their next TV commercial….

Sorry…I lost track of the conversation for a second there.


Your teeth.

Allow the Muse to introduce you to a very cute set of toothpastes for quite a cute little price! $20 bucks ($25 if you nab it after the Friends and Family Discount! Wow I should get paid for pimping Sephora so much lately!) gets you 5 mini tubes of GoSMILE toothpaste and a cute little travel toothbrush!

GoSMILE 5 Senses Toothpaste Kit as seen on Sephora

I have this set, my sister stuck in my stocking last year as a bit of a joke (see even my family knows how anal I am about brushing my teeth!) and I must say it’s a darn cute set and makes a great gift for people like me in your life 😉

The set includes toothpastes in Mango Paradise Smile, Aloha Tropical Smile, Lemonade Smile, Ginger Cookie Smile, and Peppermint Candy Smile!

The Muse got one for her dentist last year and her dentist was quite tickled over it to say the least!

The moral of the story is that you don’t have to always have minty fresh breath! Why not have Ginger Cookie scented breath or Lemonade scented breath!!!!!!!

I like a little variety and the little things really get me happy thus this kit most definately gets a smile (a sparkling one) from your Muse!

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…!

Full Fuchsia

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 😉


MAC Tenderstones Still Alive and Kicking at Nordies!

Ha! I was browsing around Nordies and noticed that MAC Tenderstones are still available for purchase!

I find this kinda funky and funny 😉

You can check the Muse’s review by clicking here if you have any ideas about purchasing some of these!
