Day of Beauty: Face Stockholm Spring Collection 2009

As I mentioned in my previous post I’ll be reviewing many of the items in the Face Stockholm Spring Collection release but for now check out a complete look of the collection on the Muse!

Face Stockholm’s Spring Collection is all about simplicity but with a very chic feel. It’s runway beauty at it’s best in my opinion with subtle shimmery lids paired up with a popping red lippie. It’s easy to wear and ideal for the warmer weather where you want enough but not too much on your face.


I improvised slightly on the look by toning down the red lipstick (I can’t pull off red too well) and lining my waterline with the black liner since I stink at cat eyes. The end result was a pretty, simple, yet elegant day to night time look.

For my face I used Face Stockholm Go Natural Mineral Foundation (amazing can’t wait to tell you more shortly!) and some Face Stockholm Magic Wand to conceal my eyes.

On my lids I used Face Stockholm Eye Shadow in Pearl, Face Stockholm Vanity Eye Dust, and Face Stockholm Gel Liner. I swept Pearl all over my lid, crease, and upper eye area as a shadow wash since it’s very sheer and natural. It preps my eye beautifully and makes them look more awake and refreshed. I followed up by sweeping the Vanity Eye Dust all over my lid and blended up and into my crease. I completed the look by adding a touch of the gel liner to my lower waterline. Finally I applied Face Stockholm Mascara to my lashes!

For my lips I used Face Stockholm Lipstick and Face Stockholm Alert Pot Gloss. You’ll see below that I blended the lipstick out by using a good dose of the gloss. I also took a secondary picture with bare lips and just the gloss on, I thought this complimented the look nicely.

Finally I completed my look using Face Stockholm Splendid Blush for a healthy touch of pink!

Here’s what I came up with:


I think it’s quite nice and minimal! Very pretty results. Although this is a Spring Collection, I have a feeling I’ll be making plenty of use out of much of it well into Summer as well.

C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum

I freaking love the C.O. Bigelow Lemon line. The shower gel, the hand soap, the moisturizer…it’s all good news to me. So get this, best news evers, C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum. Can you say freak out!?


WANT!

Click it for the deets!

So check it, C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum is inspired by my beloved, favorite Lemon Body Cream from C.O. Oh my god likey! It’s a pure, sparkling lemon fragrance that blends gren lemon leaves, citrus notes, and a creamy white musk. Sounds pretty much like what heaven smells like (I’ll write a mass e-mail when I get there one day so you know if I was right about that!).

The scent already has a near 5 star rating on the Bath and Body Works website. Likey some more! The price tag isn’t half bad either for an EDP which is $34.50 for a 3.5oz size.

I so need C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum in my life please. As much as I LOVE Loccitane Citrus Verbena it just doesn’t seem to last on me, sadness. So slap me excited that the C.O. Bigelow one has an EDP, maybe it’ll linger longer on me? Oh please, please, please!

The Muse is a listening and has heard a few pleas yammering for a review so as soon as I can get my hands on it, I’ll be giving the good word!

Anyone wants?

Tell me!

Fill In The Beauty: Lip Plumper

Fill in the below beauty blank with your favorite plumper!


Although many a beauty fan will say lip plumpers don’t REALLY work the Muse begs to differ. I’ve run across a few that I really adore!


Although it’s not your typical plumper I’m quite the little fan girl for Lipstick Queen Shine Gloss. It really does make my lips look HUGE and juicy looking! Likey!
