Product Musings: MAC Lipstick in Kiss Manish

mac+lipstick

The Muse is super excited about MAC’s upcoming Summer Collections. All the colors are positively dreamy! Loving all that gold and bronze, so very Muse-like!

As I salivated over MAC Summer I couldn’t help but think what was already in my beauty arsenal that I could combo up with the collections when they released and the first thing to entire my mind was MAC Lipstick in Kiss Manish!

Loves it!

Released with the special, limited edition Manish Arora for MAC this incredible lipstick shade won my heart over fairly quickly. It’s made it’s way onto my Year End Favorite List for 2008 and has been worn too many times to count, that’s saying something as the Muse isn’t loyal to any one lipstick.

MAC+Lipstick+Kiss+Manish+1

MAC+Lipstick+Kiss+Manish+3


The shade quite reminds me of my other favorite shade from MAC, Pink Grapefruit Lipglass. It’s such an incredibly deep shade of coral with a loud orange base but just enough punch to give it a dark peach sheen on my lips. Absolutely stunning! Truly MAC broke the mold when they made this particularly lippie!

Have you tried it?

Hauled it for yourself?

Love it as much as the Muse?

Tell me all about it!

Product Musings: Bare Escentuals Blush in Fruit Cocktail

musings

I’ve Mused Bare Escentuals Glimmers and Eyeshadows but I never discussed Bare Escentuals Blushes. Secondary, on my list of favs from Bare Escentuals line would have to be their blushes.

Bare+Escentuals+Blush+Fruit+Cocktail+1

Bare Escentuals has some great hidden gems in their blush collection that many people probably never took note of, one such shade would be Fruit Cocktail.

Doesn’t the name just make you happy?

Bare+Escentuals+Blush+Fruit+Cocktail+2

The shade is a popping pink that kinda reminds me of fruit cocktail. Every eat fruit cocktail in the can? All that fruit and if you’re lucky a single cherry or two….I used to love the cherry when I was little, it was the highlight of the fruit cocktail! This blush reminds me of those days.

Bare+Escentuals+Blush+Fruit+Cocktail+3
Bare+Escentuals+Blush+Fruit+Cocktail+4
Bare+Escentuals+Blush+Fruit+Cocktail+5
Bare+Escentuals+Blush+Fruit+Cocktail+6

The color could be a bit loud for some but for my cheeks it’s very flattering. It has that just pinched look that I favor in my blushes and if I’m feeling frisky I can even use it as an all over color wash on my eyes!

Bare Escentuals Blush in Fruit Cocktail is one to watch, the Muse loves it!

Tried it?

Love it?

Product Musings: MAC Eyeshadow Firespot


untitled

The Muse thinks we should all sign a petition and ask MAC to freaking bring back Firespot! Too many makeup junkies have not experienced the beauty and joys of Firespot, blasphemy!

The Muse has an orange eyeshadow here and there. She also owns a few peaches, a few bronzes, and a coral or two, and other wonderful shades that fall into the “orange” category. But she’s never quite run across such a stunning, pigmented shade of pure orange flame like MAC Firespot.

MAC+Firespot1

Upon it’s release with the MAC Moonbathe Collection it sold out uber quickly. I was lucky to get one at the time as I was a week to late hauling Moonbathe as I recall it.

MAC+Firespot2

MAC+Firespot3

It’s possibly the most prettiest shade I’ve come across and quite reminds me of a flame of a fire. It’s extremely pigmented and works amazingly well with golds to create a gorgeous Summery eye look!

Loves it!

Can we please has it back now MAC?

How about you?

Have it?

Love it?

Tell the Muse!

Product Musings: Bare Escentuals Glimmer in Azure

untitled

When I recently mused about Bare Minerals Glimmer many of you were quick to chime in about a favorite shade of mine that was pictured in one of my photos.

Azure.

Ahhh Azure truly a great Glimmer if ever the Muse seen one!

Although many Bare Escentual Glimmers are gorgeous I have a special place in my heart for Azure. Truly a versatile color that works fantastically well with greens to create a perfect popping eye look. A wash of Azure over your lids is sure to create plenty of conversation on “whatever is that color?”

Bare+Escentuals+Glimmer+Azure+1

Bare+Escentuals+Glimmer+Azure+2

Is it blue? Is it blue-green? Is it teal? Is it aqua?

It’s Azure and stunning to say the least.

Tried and true favorite for the Muse!

Love Bare Escentuals Glimmer in Azure?

Own it?

What do you cocktail it with?

Product Musings: MAC Eyeshadow in Forgery

mac

You know the Muse tends thinks that the creative genius behind MAC Eye Shadow in Forgery deserves a major award.

MAC+Eye+Shadow+Forgery+1

Although I have a slew of favorites when it comes to MAC Eye Shadow I do so admit that Forgery holds a special place in my heart.

It’s probably one of thee better shadows I own from MAC. Pairs up perfect with a cool look, works fabulous as a highlighter, tops off a smoky eye with just the right touch of shimmer, and simply screams sparkly brilliance.

MAC+Eye+Shadow+Forgery+2

MAC+Eye+Shadow+Forgery+3

MAC+Eye+Shadow+Forgery+5

Indeed, whoever created this shade deserves some sort of compensation. A tried and true favorite for this Muse.

Are you a fan of Forgery?
