Beauty News: Victoria’s Secret Debuts New Makeup Collection

Call me a beauty junkie but I can’t help but be excited about the new line of Victoria’s Secret Makeup coming out in August. Most every Victoria’s Secret you’ve walked into lately probably has the same sign up as seen below.

Victoria%27s+Secret+Cosmetics

Most of the line was hit with a 50-75% off sale during the semi-annual and in some cases even before that. This big discount was to make room for the new line do out in stores August. Of course, much of it will probably be the regular line up of blushes, shadows, and lip products however the excitement for me would be the reinvention of the packaging.

This is the second time that Victoria’s Secret is revamping it’s packaging. I admit that I long since missed the silver and pink standard from yesteryear and was never fully on board with the newer, chic black packaging. Out with the black and in with the new, this Muse hopes it’s a good one.

What do you think the new packaging will look like?

What do you want it to look like?

Hoping for something new to be added to the current selection?

Beauty News: Hard Candy Back in Business?

I’m not trying to get anyone’s hopes up and please don’t quote me on this but today I visited the Hard Candy site and came across this.

Hard+Candy

This could be one of two things. 1. It’s likely the URL was sold and a new site called “Hard Candy” is coming and maybe it will be nothing to do with makeup OR 2. (This is where you can get your hopes up) is Hard Candy coming back with a new line of cosmetics?

In this trying times one does doubt that they are redoing the entire line of cosmetics but how cool would it be if that was the case?

Here’s to hoping!

Beauty News Sephora Beauty Insider V.I.B. Membership

sephora

I’m a V.I.B.! Ha! Jealous? You have no idea what I’m talking about right? Sephora has taken the liberty of spamming my inbox this morning with my honorary badge of V.I.B-ery aka Very Important Beauty Insider. Honestly, I’m always knew I was extremely important, no joke, and it simply tickles me that Sephora now knows too!

Click it for further deets on how I’m down with the V I B and what it’s all about!

If you spend a gazillion dollars a year at Sephora they’ll beef up your Sephora Beauty Insider account and make it a V.I.B. account. Gawd, I love how Sephora is like a McDonald’s Happy Meal lately. You get a prize and a treat around every corner, SCORE!

Not only did they take the time out to send me a 10% off coupon that I can use in store or online (I’ll share it later on if I’m able too…not sure if it’s one use or not) but they also gave me a slew of new options with my beauty insider membership.

So the basic deals are you get invites to special events…no info as of yet what those events could be but I imagine it’s probably a buncha junkies gathering around some new product or something similar. On top of this you get bigger, badder freebies and access to not yet launched products…..meh all exciting I guess. Also you get access to the V.I.B. hot line….ummmm I’m guessing this is where you can discuss makeup porn with other junkies..kidding, kidding. But yes they have a hot line I suppose it’s for skin care, make up advice….again pretty cool perk.

All exciting yes but the biggest, bestest, most incredible thing evers?

Holiday Gift Card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone run around in circles and get excited! They are rewarding you now for spending buckage at Sephora! You read that right! The more you spend the more you’ll get on a gift card. No details are really confirmed in the e-mail but from what I gather they’ll be giving you a gift card towards the holiday with a dollar amount courtsey of the money you’ve spent at Sephora all through the year!

Sweet!

Check your inbox dears and maybe you’ll find your invite inside!

Nice job Sephora keep up the cool freebie-ness we all appreciate it in tough economic times.

Beauty News: Illamasqua at Sephora

Illamasqua

Illamasqua slides onto Sephora’s virtual shelves today with a warm welcome from many a fan. I’m sure many are curious about the exchange from sterling to USD for those readers in the UK and those in the US. It appears that it is a tad cheaper on our side of the world as of current conversion (when the economy heals and the sterling begins to top USD again you’ll notice a considerably jump in the price). Prices are ranging at $1-$3 cheaper than product in the UK. Not too bad, hopefully UK’ers are relieved too but as I mentioned you’ll see a big jump as the economy heals. I’m quite happy with the prices and and think it looks quite good.

But most important we now have the brand locally and can enjoy the entire Illamasqua collection for ourselves! Yay!
