The Muse is feeling all pretty in pink today as she’s wearing Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie Eyeshadow in Peekaboo Lace! Oh speaking of pink doesn’t that so remind you of Duckie from Pretty in Pink with Molly Ringwald? I had such a crush on Duckie….what the hell was Molly thinking when she dumped him for Andrew? And speaking of which how freaking disappointing was it that her dress turned out so bad? I thought she was going to whip up some Cinderella affair and she comes walking out of her bedroom in a scary pink straight jacket looking prom dress.
Sadness, but hey at least her dad was played by Roman Grant
right? That has to count for props that your dad is the future Prophet of Juniper Creek!
Oh hai did I get off track there for a second? You want to hear more about Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie dontcha? Ok, ok no more babblings about Pretty in Pink!
Jump ahead for the pretty in Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie Review!
There’s something terribly sexy about an eye shadow entitled Eye Lingerie. Sounds naughty doesn’t it? But it’s very fitting with Dianne Brill’s favorite line of “slipping it on”.
If you’re wanting a silky smooth pigmented shadow with a pretty pearl finish I highly suggest checking out Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie Eye Shadow. The shadows come packaged in a faux matchbox, slip it open to reveal the sweet lacy silver compact. Decked out with a lacy fishnet stocking and a ribbon this eye shadow is probably like no other in your collection. Flip open the compact to reveal a nice size mirror and an even nicer sized shadow! These shadows are nice and large so you’ll be looking pretty for a long time with daily use. The shade I tried was Peek-a-Boo Lace which happens to be a great dupe for the Dianne Brill Blush I recently tried. The color is a pretty pink with a solid base of gold, blended onto the lid you’ll get a morphed shadow of pinks and golds that’s unique and quite beautiful. It’s quite like the shade of blush I recently reviewed entitled Rose Gold Pearl so pairing the two up will make you very pretty in pink!
The formula of the shadow is very silky, blends easily, and is quite pigmented. If you’re wanting to multitask a bit you can probably get away with dipping a blush brush in the shadow and sweeping across cheeks for a pink, gold highlight on face and cheeks! Pretties!
All in all I continue to be impressed with the quality and uniqueness of Dianne Brill Cosmetics. If you’re looking for something a little bit different from the normal cosmetic lines do check out Dianne Brill!
Dianne Brill Eye Lingerie Eye Shadow is Muse Approved for purchase! Absolutely loves this one.

I dunno what it is that’s so very appealing about the Smashbox Mother Earth Palette but the Muse feels her blood boiling when she laid eyes on it!
After many an email asking after it I’ve decided I really need to go and get one for my very self.
What is it? An eco-friendly color palette containing four eyeshadows and a blush. It’s a certified-organic compact with a sleeve made from sustainable materials. Whoa I’m all green friendly now! Although I’m all about bolder, vibrant shades for Spring, I’m loving all over the peach colored blush in this palette.
With each purchase of the Smashbox Mother Earth Palette, a tree will be planted by the Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating sustainable enviroments through forestation.
Feel good about your purchase in knowing you’re helping your planet out and making yourself beautiful at the same time.
Loving this palette?

KATE is one of Kanebo’s many sub-branch cosmetic lines available within Japanese drugstores in Japan and if you’re lucky in various parts of Asia. Many of you already know most of this already but for those new to Asian brands a few quick facts about KATE lay ahead.
KATE is a rather inexpensive, mid-range priced cosmetic line that sports a variety of edgy compacts and cosmetics with fantastic color payoff and quality. The line is darker and has a certain flair that many Japanese cosmetics don’t sport. Where as many of these brands sport kawaii, girlish, or very feminine packaging, KATE brings the edge to it’s brand.
One of my very favorite items from the line are the KATE Dual Carat Eye Shadow palettes!
Jump ahead for my stash!
KATE Dual Carat Eye Shadow Palettes contain two contrasting shades of shimmering, pigmented shadow in a small slim line case. The shadows are silky smooth with fantastic color payoff and most important pack a nice shimmery finish that the Muse favors!
I’m a big lover of these little guys and I believe I’ve collected all the shades that KATE has released so far. I’m ever hopeful when a new collection pops up that they’ll either add to the current catalog of Dual Carat compacts or introduce a similar line up as KATE is known for revamping there palettes while keeping certain aspects of the old.
They are a true favorite with this Muse as you can see from my vast collection!
How about you?
Love KATE Dual Carat Shadow Palettes?
