Philosophy The Supernatural Coloring Book Review and Swatches

This Muse wasn’t placing any bets on absolutely loving the new Philosophy Supernatural Coloring Book.

Philosophy The Supernatural Coloring Book 1

It’s a little expensive, a little bit too tiny for the price, and well…the colors aren’t exactly as bright and fun as I like ‘em. Turns out it’s a total winner and comes with my highest Muse Approval to date.

They were so not kidding when they said this contained everything I needed to create a super natural face. Then I saw my face and now I’m a believer people!

Take the jump to hear the rave!

Fall Nude Lips: Urban Decay Naked Lipstick FOTD


I expressed my delight over the brand new Urban Decay Lipstick for Fall 2009 in Naked in a review recently. Naked is such a flattering shade of nude pink that will pair up beautifully well with a dramatic eye look or in my case a pink look!

Jump ahead for a peep!

For my look below I used a bit of Jill Stuart blush, Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow in Ballet, and Urban Decay Lipstick in Naked topped with a clear gloss from Philosophy. The look is fairly simple and innocent. As you can see Naked pairs up very nicely with a no nonsense, less than dramatic eye look but it’ll go along just as well with a bolder look that requires a nude lip look that won’t take away from the eyes. I’m normally not one for loving nude shades of lipstick but I fell in love with Naked almost instantly on swatch. It’s one the most flattering shades of nude pink I’ve come across and doesn’t have a mod look but more of a dewy finish that makes my lips look very natural.

Sneak Peeks: Bobbi Brown Ivy League Collection Review and Swatches

Oh. my. god. The Muse is so about the Bobbi Brown Ivy League Collection! I told you a bit about the collection yesterday and popped a sneak peek of my FOTD today on Twitter.


For Fall the bold, green eye look is too entirely flattering for brown eyes in my humblest. Putting aside the preppy factor and just rejoicing over such a true, gorgeous shade of forest green is enough to make me dance around in circles of joy.

Check it after the jump!

So far I’ve only gotten my hands on Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Golden Leaf but I want to haul the other emerald green shade that is being released. The texture of the shadow is super smooth, blends beautifully, and is deeply pigmented, delish! Although it’s a shimmer wash shadow it still manages to have a velvet-like finish with a subtle hint of golden sparkle. Too pretty.


To accompany the greens in the collection a new Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Forest Shimmer Ink was created. The color has a dominate brown note but also has the deeper aspects of a golden olive green. The shade is perfectly suited to the two shadows released and could possibly work as both a liner and a base.


I also told you about the new Bobbi Brown Creamy Eye Pencils. I got one in brown plum. Quite a nice, moisturizing pencil that glides on smoothly without skipping and smudges like a dream. For my look today I didn’t use the pencil but I have a future FOTD planned with it.


Honestly for me the stars of this show are the Forest Shimmer Ink Gel Liner and the two new shadows, particularly Golden Leaf. Although I favor a warm look in the Fall that’s made up of browns, golds, and occasionally oranges I can’t deny that such a deep, dark green is utterly flattering and fitting for the season.

Well done Bobbi. Another incredible line up.

For my look below I simply used Golden Leaf eye shadow all over my lid and crease followed up with Forest Shimmer Ink liner on my waterline. You can see how dramatic the look is, it obviously speaks for itself that a simple wash of shadow on my lids and a little lining created a bold, beautiful look! Also as promised a close up of my eye using Urban Decay Eye Lash Primer and Urban Decay Skyscraper Mascara…I think you can see the results are quite nice when the two are combined.


Anyone hauling?

Excited as I am about all that green?

Tell it!
