Shop Shu

56656

For the longest time, in order to get my Shu dosage, I ordered from the Shu Uemura website but now I can shop Shu from Sephora!

Sephora used to carry a limited range of Shu cosmetics but it now offers quite a few more items! It doesn’t yet carry the entire line but it’s slowly adding more and more items.

This makes the Muse happy! Especially when it’s time for the Friends and Family discount at Sephora! Shu discounted! Yes, indeed the Muse is content!

A Reader’s youTube Videos

A lovely girl by the name of Aimee happened to e-mail the Muse about a month ago (*blush* it’s taken me this long to get to replying).

In her e-mail she explained that my videos had inspired her to make some of her own!

I love looking at other people’s collections and this video deserves a look (A traincase full of goodies)! Aimee also happens to have some great tutorials up!

The Muse recommends you have a peek!

Thanks for the e-mail Aimee and keep up the great work with the videos! The Muse approves and loves ‘em icon wink

And of course she’s utterly flattered she’s inspired you in someway!

Anna Sui Royal Romp Pressed Powder M

1440

An angel happened to help the Muse out in purchasing some of her recent lemmings for Anna Sui goodies!

Upon seeing the new Royal Romp collection from Anna Sui on the Japan site the Muse swooned in delight!

The entire collection is quite delightful but the thing that whispered to the Muse’s delicate little ears was the Pressed Powder M!

Magical Pressed Powder to enhance my complexion! Oh my!

The design on these delicate compacts is lovely gothic black and purple colors with a silver and purple butterfly emblem on top! Inside the powder has a slight shimmer to it and a purple puff that carries the strong, sweet, gorgeous scent of roses! Tre Chic!

I’m quite pleased with these powders! It’s just the right amount of shimmer that you aren’t over doing a look. The texture is soft and perfect in all ways! And how cute to whip this out of your bag for quick touch ups right?

The colors available are a pale pink/white (01), a beige/peach (02), and a darker pink (03).

The Muse ended up going with 01 and 03 as 02 didn’t appeal to her.

Overall these are a fantastic little find from the Royal Romp Collection and worth a peek or a purchase! They are limited edition so get ‘em while to getting is good icon wink

Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie

The Muse is as obsessed with fragrance as she is with cosmetics and she’s always on the look out for exciting new scents to tickle her nose and make her smell gorgeous!

While wandering around on one of my favorite sites, Wickedly Chic, I came across a review of Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie.

I ended up ordering three oils from Magickal Perfumerie and believe you me that was a difficult task to do! The array of scents available is overwhelming and everything sounds so good that you’ll be tempted to buy one of everything!

The first item to hit my cart was a perfume oil entitled “Candy Pop”.

AD CandyPop

This perfume promised notes of Pink Sugar, Candied Apple, Coconut, Cherry, Strawberry, Vanilla, Daffodil, Plumeria. Oh my the Muse likey all those notes!

I haven’t yet tried any of these on my person so this is a first impression from sniffing alone and not wearing the actual fragrance! Upon first sniff of Candy Pop I can most definately smell the fruits in this blend! Cherry and Strawberry are the most prominent with an underlay of coconut and a tiny smidgen of apple! Vanilla is most definately in there as well and it appears to be holding the entire concoction together with a gorgeous layering.

Candy Pop is most definately a favorite for the Muse! As far as lasting power and linger that’s to be determined when I get around to wearing this lovely blend!

As I was wandering and browsing around the site with Candy Pop safely in my cart awaiting purchase I came across a most interesting perfume, Linnea Quigley Summer of Sin. Now I think the celeb factor along sold me on this perfume blend. You may not know Linnea Quigley unless you’re a geek but for me the general idea of a blend that was endorsed by the scream queen of B Horror films totally blew me away and I had to have it. The geek factor did sell me on this but I also happened to glance at the notes in the oil and they also agreed with the Muse’s little nose so into the cart it went!

AD Linnea Summer

The description of the oil contains Coconut Oil, Papaya and Pineapple and a few other interesting tropical treats that most definately appeal to my sense of smell. Upon sniffing this I am a tad disappointed. I was expecting this to be way more tropical than it actually is. I do get coconut and some pineapple but the blend seems to also have a strange (not unpleasant) of chocolate. It’s interesting that’s for sure and my disappointment is only minor as the blend seems quite nice!

My final purchase was difficult to make simply because I ended up running into the “sugared” collection category on the site. The site carries a large list of sugared scents that make my mouth water! I settled on Sugared Melons as my purchase but Sugared Cherries, Sugared Bananas, Sugared Vanilla Mint, and quite a few more tempted me to commit a major sin against my credit card! I refrained and ended up with Sugared Melons as I do adore the sweet scent of Melon!

A mouth-wateringly delicious melon salad of Honeydew, Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Mango, Guava and Papaya, with a sprinkling of sparkling sugar.

AD SugMelons

The above description sold me on this perfume blend and I’m happy to have picked it as it smells fantastic! Cantaloupe is most definately a high note in this perfume blend and it’s quickly followed by Watermelon. I haven’t yet touched on Mango, Guava, or Papaya but once I try this on my skin I imagine it’ll dry down to a mix of wonderful fruity scents!

Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie are extremely generous with their samples and they included 4 large samples that the Muse is quite thankful for as it gives her a chance to further experiment with some new blends from this fantastic site!

Included with my order was Sugared Orchids, Innocence Found, Nectar du Printemps, and Linnea Quigley’s Rabid.

Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie is making it’s way to the Muse’s favorite list very quickly! Customer Service was fantastic, generous extras, and shipping was super quick (and quite FREE! I love free shipping!).

One other thing that deserves to be mentioned is the artwork on the bottles and the website. The art work is just too awesome. What you see on the site is what is printed on each bottle’s label!

I’m very eager to try these on and can’t wait to make my next order!
