A Reader’s youTube Videos

A lovely girl by the name of Aimee happened to e-mail the Muse about a month ago (*blush* it’s taken me this long to get to replying).

In her e-mail she explained that my videos had inspired her to make some of her own!

I love looking at other people’s collections and this video deserves a look (A traincase full of goodies)! Aimee also happens to have some great tutorials up!

The Muse recommends you have a peek!

Thanks for the e-mail Aimee and keep up the great work with the videos! The Muse approves and loves ‘em icon wink

And of course she’s utterly flattered she’s inspired you in someway!

T’estimo’s Demise, Coffret D’Or Uprise!

If you’re as much a fan as Japanese cosmetics as I am you’ll know that Kanebo is cutting T’estimo from it’s main line up and replacing it with a new line entitled Coffret D’Or.

I’m mourning T’estimo in a major way! If you’d like a sneak peak at Coffret D’Or do head on over to my good friend Iris’s blog to see some great pics of the new line!

The new line does look interesting enough but I’m still not completely convinced!

Fellow Japanese cosmetics addicts what’s your take?

Elke Von Freudenberg on the Wedding Podcast Show

I happened upon this tonight and thought I’d share! The Muse’s new mate, Elke, is on the Wedding Podcast Show discussing quickie makeup application tips and eyebrow shaping! I was particularly enthralled listening to her discuss eyebrow shaping (I had a giggle when she said she sorta looks at girls in the street and envisions what she could do to make the brow area better, etc…). I’d love to see what sort of advice she’d give the Muse about her brows!

Anyway do CLICK over and listen! It’s quite interesting!

While were on the topic of eyebrow shaping check out the photoshopped eyebrow job that Kiss and Makeup did on Keira Knightley!

Remember kids, eyebrow shaping is important, don’t want to go around looking like that scary photoshopped version of Keira do ya?

Lunasol Geminate Eye Palettes

A package from my angel arrived a few days ago which contained the new Lunasol Geminate Eye palettes!

SQUEAL!

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 icon wink

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!
