I just want you to know I’m willing to have my head examined and shell out $150 for this gorgeous train case from Kat Von D.


Exclusively at Sephora the Kat Von D Angeleno Case is a luxury train case for storing or traveling with beauty. With an interior material that’s soft-textured and passionate red in color this lush case is $150. Five compartments and four built in pouches make up the entire case with a built in mirror and a beautiful, signature, tattoo inspired exterior.


Am I the only one loving on this?

Beauty News: Bobbi Brown Cosmetics “The Bobbi Brown Experience”

If you happen to live abroad, lucky you, you’ll be happy to know that this Spring, Bobbi Brown is opening two new free-standing stores in Paris at 1 Bis, Rue des France Bourgeois, Le Marais, Paris and in Japan at 3-46 Kita-Aoyama, Minata-ju, Tokyo.


Jump ahead for more information.

The Studios are an expression of Bobbi Brown’s unique brand culture, and a way for consumers to discover and enjoy Bobbi’s products and services first-hand.

The store’s main goal is to offer a welcome environment for the consumer to try products at their own leisure or with the help of a Makeup Artist. When visiting The Studios you’ll have the freedom to design your own shopping experience. You can gather with others at an artistry table to exchange tips and ideas, watch a video of Bobbi’s seasonal inspirations and how to’s, or you can choose from a menu of specialized services. The Studio stores will also offer exclusive, limited editon items on a seasonal basis.

Oh my god jealous! I want to visit a Bobbi Brown Studio Store!

The Communal Artistry Table is a focal point of the stores inviting consumers that are either shopping alone or with friends to enjoy an environment where they can test products on their own or have a on the spot makeup lesson with an artist!

The entire studio experience is to get customers more hands on with Bobbi’s products and also to teach them how to use the products to their full advantages. Numerous services are offered in the shops.

This is the first I’ve heard of this and it appears we even have one across the bridge in Jersey. Perhaps the Muse needs to stop in for a peep!

10 MAC Lip Glosses You Should Own


Somehow, someway MAC Lipgloss wiggled it’s way into my heart. My first try with MAC gloss was a nightmare and I ended up hating it for ever after because of the terribly sticky, tacky formula. As you know I’ve since made peace with the formula and even give it props for being tacky enough to stay in place for hours at a time.

I’m now the pride owner of one too many MAC lip glosses. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Who knows but the fact remains I can’t get enough of them and I look forward to new shades with each release.


Check out my list below fro 10 MAC Lip Gloss shades I think you should own or at least consider adding to your collection!



MAC glosses come and go through my life as collections release. The shades you see above are ones that stick out in my mind and I consider favorites! The Muse thinks you should think about adding one or two of these colors to your collection, loves ’em!

Anyone own any of these shades?

What are some MAC gloss shades that stick out in your mind?
