How very un-cosmetic of the Muse but today she’s highly interested in scoring some Hello Kitty Diamonique @ QVC! I have a serious addiction to collecting Hello Kitty themed jewelry…necklaces, earrings, watches, you name it the Muse probably owns it with Hello Kitty’s mug on it!
At one time it was pretty difficult to get nice jewelry featuring Hello Kitty within the US so I was an offshore collector nabbing things from different parts of Asia, particularly Japan.
It’s gotten considerably less harder to get some great themed products here in the US and even Sanrio has finally expanded it’s line to include some fairly nice Hello Kitty jewelry items!
When I heard QVC was doing a presentation of Hello Kitty Jewelry, well, you can imagine how excited I was!
Check out why below!
Jumping on the coat tails of MAC’s Hello Kitty release I’m sure it’ll be a Spring of Hello Kitty releases and QVC just happens to have a line up of Hello Kitty items from it’s popular “Diamonique ” line.
Nothing got up and grabbed me after I looked through some of the collection but I did end up nailing the QVC “Today’s Special” and a few other bits and bobs I’ll share with you in a sec.
The today’s special is a Hello Kitty Zodiac Pendant for $86 USD and some change. I thought it was darling so I picked it up in my sign. It’s available in all the zodiac signs and comes with a chain so I thought it was well worth the price.
I also snagged the Hello Kitty Diamonique High Polished “Kitty ID Tag” Pendant for $56 bucks which also includes the a chain. I thought this was a bit different from other pieces I collected and quite cute.
And finally I got the Hello Kitty Diamonique Sterling Princess Kitty Pendant which was $96. This was quite a unique piece as well and I thought the price wasn’t bad considering it comes with the chain as well.
They had some super cute items and I think I nabbed the most interesting and unique in the collection. It’s worth checking out if you’re a big Hello Kitty Fan!
You can check the entire collection at Hello Kitty Diamonique.
I guess Hello Kitty will be ruling the Spring scene! I look forward to see what else popped theme wit her Hello Kittyiness!
Wanna steal some Majolica Majorca Trick On Palettes?
Get ’em for $13.80 USD at Sasa.com plus Free Shipping on orders over $75
That price is a lower than Japanese retail so I’d jump on board if I were you. They only have two shade selections available but if you’ve been wanting to try ’em for a while and didn’t want to shell out the jacked up prices on evil-bay and online shops, this is a great way to get them at a good cost!

Go get ’em!
Sephora sometimes sneakily places items on sale and before you notice that they are giving away cosmetics for next to nothing, everything is normally snatched up and long gone.
So what’s the trick for scoring a Sephora sale?
Allow the Muse to tell you……….
You may already know this tip but it’s fairly simple the Muse suggests doing it once a week or once every two weeks to carry away the swag from Sephora when a sale hits.
What is it Muse? What is it? How do we score at Sephora?
Simply search “sale” on Sephora’s site and anything and everything that’s currently on clearance will pop up on the screen!
Go practice and try it out for yourself! Click! But don’t tell anyone else. It’s our secret, k? Shhhhh.
Last year Nordstrom offered the bareMinerals Pure Platinum Gift Set for the Holidays and the Muse was pretty delighted with the kit.
It’s long since been gone though and I’m sure that those who didn’t indulge may still be yearning for it.
Have no fear the Muse can show you how to get your very own bareMinerals Pure Platinum!
Get the deets how after the jump!
QVC has gotten the bareMinerals Pure Platinum Kit in stock for $59 USD (same price as last year w00t score!)!
Type in item number A81855 to snag yours!
The kit includes:
- Bare Escentuals Blush in Posh Blush
- Bare Escentuals Gossamer Body Powder in Platinum
- Bare Escentuals Glimmer Eyeshadow in Silvery Hue
- Bare Escentuals Eyeshadow in Periwinkle
- Bare Escentuals Natural Lip Color in Ripe Fig
- Bare Escentuals Double-Ended Mascara with Classic Black Mascara and Platinum Luminous Lashes
- Bare Escentuals Flawss Face Brush
- Bare Escentuals Tapered Shadow BrushBare Escentuals Crease Defining Brush
The kit is well worth picking up since it’s one of the older kits which includes full sizes of virtually almost everything in it where as nowadays Bare Escentuals has decreased the size of products drastically in new set releases. It also includes quite a variety of items where as, again, BE has chosen to scale down not only the size of products in it’s newer kits but also the quantity of items.
This is a rare gem well worth picking up especially if you missed it last year!
After the popularity of my Etude House post I got so many comments, e-mails, and questions asking where you could buy Etude House from. Sadly, I got mine directly from a friend in Korea and I was unable to recommend any good, inexpensive sellers online.
I recently ran across a site entitled BeautyKat which sells a limited amount of Etude House products. Prices aren’t too bad and shipping is only $2.88 USD within the US.
The site sells a few Japanese brands as well so it’s worth checking out!
