Stash Spotlight: Gransenbon Gran Blush

spotlight

Gransenbon Gran Blush is my go to product for soft, gently flushed cheeks! Which could account for why I’ve stocked up on a majority of the colors offered!

I think many of us stateside aren’t afraid of color. We aren’t shy in using a deeper, pigmented blush to make cheeks pop! However, many colors you’ll find in Asian brands are softer and lighter for a more natural, unmade up look. Gransenbon Gran Blush caters towards a more natural finish that, when I’m in the mood for it, is truly flattering.

The shades have a tiny hint of shimmer that’s barely noticeable and all the shades are soft and delicate even those that are darker only give the barest kiss of color. For the most part I do admit that the packaging with it’s soft pink outer case and cute dual compartment is what captured my attention at first but soon after I was thrilled over the color selection which is how I ended up hauling away most of the catalog of colors offered!

Here’s a little peek at my stash of Gran Blushes!

Steal It: on10 Lip Balms

I think the on10 Collection available at Sephora is simply darling so I’m a little upset at how drastically they cut their prices as this could be the beginning of the end. I sure hope I’m wrong.

cat

The good news is you can grab some serious steals and deals at the moment from the line. The Muse is all about stocking up on some of these cute little tins of balm especially at these prices………

Virtually the entire catalog of on10 Lip Balm singles has been cut from the original price tag of $10 USD and is now down to $6.30 USD. I do think they were worth the original price but I kinda sorta feel like $6 bucks is a fairer deal for a tin of balm, maybe I’m cheaping it a bit here but I love the idea of $6 bucks when compared to $10!

on10

I think the best part of on10 is the ridiculous variety. They have SOOOOOO many quirky little flavors and if you’re a big fan of balms this is sure to tickle your fancy. Plus I failed to mention the adorable vintage style design! Loves it!

At $6.30 USD the Muse says go Steal It! She’s going to!

bareMinerals Pure Platinum

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!
