Beauty Bits & Bobs
A few weeks ago I introduced you to some of DuWop’s new items for Fall which was a small selection of interesting bits and bobs. One item in particular instantly caught and held my eye which was the DuWop Crush Molten Metallic Eyeshadow Trio.
Can you say love?
The DuWop Crush palette contains just about everything I love about a shadow palette. Pigmented shadows, beautiful finish, shimmery, intense color! Yes, indeed the Muse loves it alot! She sometimes sleep with it under her pillow and whispers her love to it although it hasn’t yet replied…oh well!
It’s quickly becoming my favorite Fall shadow trio although I doubt I’ll be faithful to it…you know the Muse, ever the junkie when it comes to eyeshadow! Jumping around and cheating on favorites is fair play in cosmetic land!
However, right now, it’s high up there on the rungs of eyeshadow nirvana!
In all seriousness, you should probably get out that Sephora wish list and check it twice making sure that the DuWop Crush Eyeshadow Palette is on there!
The palette consists of three deeply pigmented shadows that work at either creating three single color looks or creating multiply looks by combining the three. Although it’s only three shades they work extremely well at creating a multitude of different looks that are amazingly flattering for the Fall season! The colors in the palette include a copper, a cranberry, and a golden cream.
The texture on these is a creamy powder finish that blends like a dream! The colors all have fantastic color pay off and wear well all day long. Although they could be considered metallic in finish I felt like the shadows also had a beautiful shimmery finish as well. Although the formula was slightly flaky fall out was minimal and easy to clean up!
I created two seperate looks using the trio. The first one I used the darker copper shade and the cranberry shade as a contrasting color on the outer v and swept up towards the crease. The second look I created using the single golden cream shade all over my crease and lid.
Loving the lips? It’s Shine Manish Lipglass from MAC!
All in all the looks I created are very warm and flattering for the season!
I have to say that the DuWop Crush palette is definately Muse Approved for purchase! The colors are amazingly pigmented, beautiful for Fall, and stunning on. It’s a must have palette for Fall in my opinion! It comes with my highest recommendation and approval for purchase! You can nab it for $24 USD at DuWop (Free Shipping on orders $50 and up) or from Sephora.
By the way, it totally felt like a Sally day today hehe!
Want it for yourself?

Hey there, hi there!
I’m a little slow today getting reviews out but I wanted to do another quick give away in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I felt a bit pressured and rushed this month getting reviews out and I’ve been quite swamped with just about everything else so my blog hasn’t taken part in much of the goings on for Breast Cancer Awareness.
This doesn’t mean that I have forgotten, far from it. Although I haven’t personally been effected by this disease my heart still goes out to those who have had to personally deal with it or who have had friends or family members effected by it.
Allow me to direct you to a few members of The Beauty Blog Network who are currently working hard at raising money for this worthy cause. Please visit the Beauty Blog Network to find out more information and how you can make a personal donation to this cause.
After careful consideration I decided I wouldn’t be doing a chip in post this year for donations as I felt a tad bit too rushed to take it all on however I have made a personal donation. If you’d like to support the Muse’s charity of choice you can visit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and make your donation, small or large, every little bit takes us one step towards a cure.
You can also help with the cause by purchasing “Pink” themed products from such companies as Estee Lauder who donate partial or all proceeds of purchases to Cancer Research!
I’m having a small give away on this post as well. You can comment below to enter and I’ll announce the winner at the end of the month. If you win you’ll receive an Estee Lauder Pink Ribbon Pin!
As always my contests are open to both US and International readers!
Good Luck and I’ll hope you’ll consider making a small donation to some charity this month to help make a path towards a brighter future for cancer research!

Did ya know that Lancome Oscillation Mascara is available for purchase on Lancome’s website as of October 22nd?
The Muse sure is!
I got my credit card handy and ready to go as I missed the original release of Lancome Oscillation Mascara when Lancome had a sneak peek purchase a few months ago!
But now, finally, I can have one for my very own!
I seriously can’t wait to try this mascara because I’m hearing raves all across the board about how fab it is! From what I understand the counter wait list is long so you might want to save yourself the agony right now and order it online when it officially releases this week!
Plus I got super good news for you…..
You can have one too!

Good Luck and do have a click over to Lancome’s site and show ’em the love! The Muse would appreciate it greatly!
A kind reader, Elena, pointed out last week NP Set, Jemma Kid, and Pixi had disappeared from the shelves and was clearance’d out at her local Target!
Could this be true? Was the Muse’s prediction of the demise of these lines at Target right?
I skipped my way to Target immediately to find out as I was very curious to see what was going on!
Super sleuth, the Muse, is on the case!
I’m unsure where Elena is located but it looks like the lines are all up and available at Target and regularly priced here in New York. I visited two Targets just to be sure but all remains perfectly safe and sound….so far.
The only thing I noticed that was slightly suspicious is the lit title header on the Pixi display was gone (at both Targets!)…..mmmm could be me jumping to conclusions but is this a hint that they are taking the display down soon?
Hmmm missing display!
Who knows but I’m definately keeping my eyes peeled for new develops as I’m dead curious if the lines will make it or break as predicted by yours truly!
Have you seen Pixi, NP Set, or Jemma Kid on sale at your local Target?
No? Think the lines will last much longer before hitting the sale bin?
Tell the Muse!
