Kesalan Patharan French Couture Eyeshadow Palettes

The Muse has an angel that takes very, very good care of her! When the Muse needs her Japanese fix the angel is always around to get what is on the Muse’s wish list (I’m very lucky to be blessed with wonderful people in my life!)!

Today I got a gorgeous package that I have holding my breath waiting for and inside were two items that were most definately on this Muse’s wish list!

Kesalan Patharan French Couture Eyeshadow Palettes!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m quite pleased with these and I’m happy I ended up purchasing them as I wasn’t sure at first if they were worth it. I’m happy to report that you should snatch these up before they are gone for good!

Out of the entire collection of French Couture nothing else appealed to me aside from these two palettes but at first I was somewhat skeptical if they were worth a purchase but my mind was quickly changed when my sweet mate Iris said they were most definately worth getting!

The palettes are available in two flavors s005 and s004 (someday I’m going to convince the Japanese to stop naming palettes with numbers and letters! It’s bloody confusing!) . The shadows inside are three strips of shimmering color that range from dark, medium, to light which means you have just about everything you need within this compact to create your eye look!

My favorite of the two would have to be s005 which consists of a shimmering gold, a shimmering brown, and a gorgeous peach color. s004 is equally beautiful and includes a shimmering silver, a deep shimmering purple, and a lighter purple.

Of course the Muse in her sick, twisted little mind doesn’t want to use them at the moment because of the beautiful design imprinted on the middle powder! It’s a swirling flowery affair that will be ruined once you dip your brush into it. Le sigh the life of a cosmetic junkie is sometimes too stressful!

KP has outdone themselves with these very sweet palettes and I’m just enjoying looking at these at the moment and thinking up exciting eye looks to create!

The palettes are available for $55SGD and 3,990yen so I’m happy to report that the import of these to Singapore hasn’t caused too much of a price jack and the palettes are respectfully a few dollars off (for us yanks that’d be $37USD and $34USD).

I have other KP shadow trios and I do like the line of shadows from KP as they are quite pigmented but I do feel they are slightly chalky in texture and rub off a bit easily. These are the first really pretty shimmery shades I’ve seen from KP and I’m enjoying the novelty of them!

Overall, if you have the means these should most definately make an appearance on your wish list!

Now the Muse’s angel always spoils her and she also happened to included an awesome KP makeup bag for me which I’m utterly loving at the moment! It had a cute mini KP brush set inside too! Plus another cute Stila Girl makeup bag in pink icon wink The Muse loves pink! Having good friends around that take such lovely care of me always makes my day!

HSN Sephora Steals and Deals

Bit early for Steals and Deals but HSN has been featuring many Sephora brands at some great deals icon smile

The Muse has knocked up the best deals she noticed and slapped them into a nice little blog just for you! You can thank me and tell me how great I am later!

Make Up For Ever Star Powder Trio for $45 with Free Shipping
These normally run $18 each and that’d be $54 for three with the HSN option you’ll be getting three at a discount of $9 plus you have an option to pay for these with their flex pay plan. Flex pay basically cuts the cost in half and charges the payment to you this month and the following month! Kinda cool if you’re wanting to space your payments apart!

The Cargo Travel Collection Portable Makeup Box Set may be exclusive to HSN as I’ve never seen these items bundled together prior to this! This set is $29 with Free Shipping and includes 30 Pack a Day Lipgloss, 28 Color Cards, and Liquid Powder Foundation in a cute tin! These are great for traveling, quick makeup looks, and heck they’d make a great gift! Color Cards are $24 on Sephora and 30 Pack a Day Lipgloss is $12 so that’s a total of $36 for those two items if you purchase them separately. For an extra $4 you can get the HSN kit that includes the cute tin and Liquid Powder Foundation! I personally have the gloss packs and love these! I’ve never tried the color cards but this is a perfect excuse to do so at the price!

These are just some of the great deals I came across on HSN. I’m really liking that Sephora has teamed up with HSN for one main reason, that would be the freaking awesome Free Shipping option! I think it’s so great I can just log onto HSN and get Free Shipping on say a Dior Mascara or a Cargo Blush as compared to Sephora where I have to spend $75 before getting Free Shipping!

Do check out HSN for more interesting goodies!
