Not So Sparkly: Trish McEvoy The All About The Eyes Collection

Trish McEvoy The All About The Eyes Collection

The new Trish McEvoy The All About The Eyes Collection has me every so slightly puzzled. After a brief trip to my local counter count me even more confused than when I started out.

The new collection features a few new shadows with the promise of sparkle and shimmer but are so very subdued and are even part of the general catalog?

Count me confuddled!



Latest Obsession: H20+ Oasis Mist

Ok, I’ll be the first one to admit I have way too many facial mists in my beauty arsenal. Anyone? Raise your hand slowly, no reason to rush into your confession.

Who better than the pioneers in the HD makeup world to create a new HD Blush.  Make Up For Ever HD Blush is the newest edition to the HD family of products from MUFE and it’s coming atcha soon.

What do you think?

Ready for the world of HD blush?

Not sure what I think. I’m not too keen on cream blush and even less so on a liquid form of blush. But we’ll see….could turn into something special!


Pieces of Life: The 11th, He Cometh Soon.

the 11th

They say Spring is a time of renewal. A rebirth of sorts isn’t it? The damp chill of the Winter is greeted with warmth, flowers begin to bloom again, the chill and darkness of Winter is suddenly erased, eased even with new hope and a new beginning. What better time for the 10th to be reborn and the 11th to grace us with his presence.

The trailer for Doctor Who appeared this weekend on BBC for those within the UK and if you were privy to it already, lucky you, if not here it is, in all it’s 65 second glory.



The Muse’s Mail Bag: Bihada Ichizoku Cheek Blush Review and Swatches

mail bag

Peeping into the mail bag today I got a few requests and questions on the Bihada Ichizoku items I’ve been reviewing.

Kelly from Washington writes,

Dear Muse,

I really like your reviews on Bihada Ichizoku. My friend was telling me that cosmetics are also available with this range but I only see you reviewing the skincare. Is it true? Are there cosmetics?

If you heard about this can you do a review of these items too?
