Sneak Peek: Lancome Holiday Collection 2009

The British Beauty Blogger is on the case of the Lancome Holiday Collection 2009. Although it may be early for you to think of the Holiday, the world of beauty bloggers are already clamoring at the prospects of beautiful seasonal makeup.

Lancome releases yet another shimmering powder with this year’s holiday collection. I find that Lancome and Estee Lauder seem to keep with the powder theme much of the time. Obviously, this is a super secret ninja spy marketing technique because they know we can’t just pass up a powder that sparkles right? Lancome Sparkling Cherub Sheer Warming Illuminating powder has a cute little cherub embedded into the powder and appears to be made up of a bronze gold shade. Looks more Valentine-like to me but very pretty none the less.

Lancome Glossy Plum Color Fever Gloss looks like a rather festive red color. British Beauty Blogger reports it’s somewhat of gothic, vampy shade. I find it unique and quite fitting for the holiday.

Also releasing are two limited edition Lancome Oscillation Mascaras one of which is a sparkling gold and the other a silver. I’m really interested in both as I love sparkly lash looks for the Holiday.

The entire collection should be available on counters November 1st or probably before if this Muse’s Lancome hopes and wishes are granted.

The Muse wonders if the romance of Paris can be captured in a single bottle of fragrance and the answer is yes with Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Eau de Parfum.

Like the rose, Paris is about the romance, elegance, and sophistication of a city that has the charm of a small quaint village. The romance and softness of the rose and the beautiful city come together in this beautiful floral blend that’s sure to please those who like feminine perfume blends.

Sneak Peek: Korres Natural Beauty Necessities Review and Swatches

Just between us, I’ve been the queen of cheap lately. I’m not sure what brought on my sudden cheapieness but I’m thinking it’s a few things. At first I thought it might be the economy, after that it was the recession. Finally I’ve decided that cheaphood comes from 1. having way too much makeup and 2. just wanting to simplify things and keep it simple.

You like simple, natural, cheap makeup? Oh you do, do you. Me too.

That’s why I’m all about the brand new Korres Natural Beauty Necessities.

Korres Natural Beauty Necessities 1 225x300

Korres Natural Beauty Necessities 3 300x225

Score! Deal!

Product Musings: MAC Push the Edge Pigment Swatches MAC Make-Up Art Fall As Seen By Marilyn Minter


Long gone are the days of old when the Muse had to have every single MAC Pigment ever known to men, ahhh the life of a cosmetic junkie.

The last of the trio in the MAC Make-Up Art is the Fall As Seen By Marilyn Minter. This collection includes MAC Pigments, MAC Reflects Glitter, and MAC Glitter. As much as I adore pigment I’m not particularly excited about this release as I do believe I’ve overdosed on plenty of piggies and glitter to last me a full life time.

Click ahead to muse about the brand new MAC Push the Edge Pigment!

The Muse’s initial impression of MAC Pigment in Push the Edge was, “whoa that’s a dupe of Entremauve”. Turns out that’s a nay. Although quite similar (so much so you can skip Push the Edge if you already own Entremauve) they are have a subtle little difference. Push the Edge is a deep set royal purple as is Entremauve but the difference is Entremauve is a tiny bit deeper in color and has a subtle bit of golden shimmer. Aside from this they pretty much swatch almost identical.


I’ve never made fair use of Entramauve as it’s either too deep a purple for me to appreciate or I just don’t have the talent to create a dramatic eye look using it. When I originally purchased it my MA suggested using it as a liner but it seemed a whole lot of piggie just to use as a liner. Since that day it’s sat happily away on my shelf without getting any love from me.

This leads me to believe that Push the Edge may very well suffer the same faith. I do so wish I could create some incredibly purple smoky eye look but I fear I don’t have the talent to take on such a bold look.


I liked Mariyln’s collection least of the three MAC Make-Up Art Trios sadly. I’m always one for getting excited about pigments but this time around I may safely skip.

Are you lemming Push the Edge?

What sort of look would you create using it?
