A package from my angel arrived a few days ago which contained the new Lunasol Geminate Eye palettes!
The colors are amazingly pigmented, full of sparkle and shimmer, and really solid colors for the cooler months! I’ve never purchased a Lunasol palette prior to these but I can see these are quite possibly Kanebo’s best line of product and may even beat out T’estimo for quality! These are a higher end cosmetic compared to Kanebo’s other color lines and the cost of each proves that these are indeed a luxurious item to purchase!
This is only a first impression, I haven’t tried them yet as I am too busy stroking them and telling them how pretty they are BUT I can tell you they are possibly better than Visee’s Jewel Crush Eyes!
Many of you, like myself have purchased T’estimo’s newest palettes plus Visee’s Jewel Crush Eyes. These beat out both in the department of high shimmer, sparkle, and glitter! If you’re pressed for cash and in debates what you should purchase I’d go with one of these and skip the T’estimo and Visee palettes! Overall I’m mighty pleased with these and quite excited to begin creating a new look with ‘em!
These have to be the best Fall collection I’ve seen this season! The colors just remind me of a cool autumn night! I was in high debate about which palettes to choose and in the end I decided on all five! And am I ever glad I did!
The Muse was completely spoiled in this package as not only were the Lunasol palettes tucked into it but some gorgeous little pressies that the angel included for me!
Now this angel knows me a little too well and she included some much lusted after Sweet Sweets palettes for me!
Sweet Sweets is an amazingly cute and inexpensive Japanese drugstore brand! These are just too terrific for words! I’m utterly in love with ‘em! They are on the sheer side but if you want to do a real simple makeup look these are perfection! I’m loving these!
And if that wasn’t enough something else was tucked into my box!
I love the little fairy drawing the eye liner on!
The Muse’s angel sure knows how to enable because Cineora is not a brand that the Muse has every heard of! The loose powder is not only adorable but perfect for tucking into my purse for touch ups! It does wonders on under eye circles! And the liner is sheer perfection! One stroke will do it! No having to go back and repeat myself this is nice and dark! The Muse is in love with Cineroa’s brand of cosmetics now
Friends are special people and when they go out of their way to do something lovely for me I can’t help but feel thankful that I am lucky enough to have my life touched by them!
The Muse’s lovely mate at A Touch of Blusher has an entire week of Anti-Aging! Some wonderful articles to be had on general skincare, skincare reviews, and great tips and tricks!
Of course the Muse is gorgeous and never aging so she has no need of trivial things such as anti-aging methods (I’m Kidding! I’m Kidding!)!
My favorite so far is Thursday’s entry which contained a link for What Makes a State-of-the-Art Moisturizer? Very interesting reading!
And of course when Anti-Aging week is over you can always keep A Touch of Blusher bookmarked for other fantastic blog entries about cosmetics, skincare, and all good things girly!
Once upon a time their was a beautiful princess by the name of Lynnderella! Now Lynnderella, like all gorgeous princesses, wanted to smell like the sweet scent of cotton candy.
Now Lynderella is quite a smart princess as she wrote to the Muse telling her tales of the perfect Cotton Candy blend! In turn the Muse felt that she owed the beautiful princess some highly gorgeous Cotton Candy recommendations
So this….is for you Lynn….a highly compiled list of all the Cotton Candy blends the Muse has tried and found true and unique to her little nose I hope it helps you on your quest in finding that perfect cotton candy blend that your little heart seeks! May it put your lemmings to rest!
Now most anyone that hears cotton candy will right away jump up and shout PINK SUGAR! PINK SUGAR! PINK SUGAR! (My lovely soulmate owns a pink shirt that’s been properly nicked Pink Sugar as I kept slipping up whenever I typed “pink shirt”…see this is how the mind of a true girl works! “Pink shirt” some how popped out as “pink sugar” almost every single time!)! Now the wonders of Pink Sugar are quite lost on me because I hate it! It makes me positively ill! Pray don’t step forward and tell me you love it because I may have to shoot you dead for admitting as such! Ok Ok..I won’t shot you…but torture you I may!
So Pink Sugar is officially off the Cotton Candy list! Princess Lynnderella is clever and she has already tried Demeter’s version of Cotton Candy but this was not to her liking! Or to mine for that matter! The throw is off, the linger is non existent and it’s just not worth it!
In the Muse’s travels through cyberspace she has discovered some near perfect blends of Cotton Candy that she hopes might appease our Princess and make her happy and lemming free!
