Sneak Peek: Stila Fall Collection 2009 Stila Kitten Lip Glaze Review and Swatches

If you were busy admiring my gloss in my Stila Kitten Smudge Pot post, allow me to tell you all about it. Along with it’s new Fall Collection Stila is releasing a brand new lip glaze in the Kitten color.

Good news for Kitten lovers I’m sure.

Jump for it.

First off, allow me to remind you Kitten has already been formulated in an LE gloss back in Summer 2008. No offense Stila but I really didn’t dig that gloss so I’m quite happy, ecstatic actually that Stila went ahead and re-released the shade in lip glaze formula.

Stila Lip Glaze is quite nice in general. Nicely pigmented, plenty of tack and stick for a long wearing formula, and a great click pen for application. Loves it!

Adding the shade Kitten to the line is fantastic as it pairs beautifully with Kitten shadow and the likes and as I said the original gloss formula wasn’t particularly great but lip glaze is by all means a beautiful gloss.

The Lip Glaze shade is considerably richer when compared to the shadow. It has a bit of pink sparkle to it but heavily golden beige for the most part. The shade is flattering for Fall without question but works well in the Summer sun as well!

If you’ve been longing for Kitten in gloss formula here’s your chance. Stila Kitten Lip Glaze releases this September as part of the Stila Fall Collection, Stila Smitten with Kitten.

Sneak Peek: Stila Fall Collection 2009 Stila Kitten Smudge Pot Review and Swatches Stila Smitten with Kitten Collection

Stila roars (or maybe meows?) into Fall with brand new Kitten goodies that are sure to please. Here’s a little sneak peek review at the brand new Stila Kitten Smudge Pot releasing this September at Sephora.

Check it!

Stila introduced Kitten Eyeshadow way back when in 1997. I do believe this was just around the time I was getting into Stila and can recall Kitten being a fast favorite. I’m not the only one as many a fan will attest that Stila Kitten Eyeshadow is a cult fav! With it’s universally flattering combination of pink and beige champagne it’s one of those soft shadows that’s brilliant for dressing up or down with. Many a fan are Smitten with this Kitten.

The release of Stila Smitten with Kitten Collection for Fall 2009 includes two new smudge pots and one new lipglaze.

You’ll be seeing Stila Kitten Smudge Pot and Stila Kitten Lip Glaze today in separate reviews and later this week I’ll be showing you Stila Black Cat Smudge Pot which is also apart of this sweet collection. Kitten has been done prior to this in a cream form and also a gloss in the Summer 2008 but it’s still very nice to see it released in a smudge pot and lip glaze format.

Stila Smudge Pots are great multitasking tools to use as a shadow primer, an all over shadow color, liner, or go crazy and use on cheeks and brow bone for a pretty highlighter. Stila Kitten Smudge Pot is a gorgeous blend of pink ad beige champagne with a shimmer finish. This smudge pot is particularly great if you’re not in love with the fall out from the powder format of Kitten as this blends easily onto the eye minus clean up after use.

Stila Smitten with Kitten is a Muse Approved for purchase. It’ll be available from Stila in September but I suspect you’ll see it towards the end of August.

If you’re a lover of Kitten you’ll sure to want to peep at this collection!

Will you haul it?

Lancome Fall Collection 2009: Lancome Declaring Indigo

Bjooti has the first images of the new Fall Collection from Lancome entitled Declaring Indigo.

I don’t always get excited about Lancome but sometimes they surprise me with delightful releases in the Fall such as the Mystery Game. Lancome Declaring Indigo is equally delightful with mysterious shimmering blues and touches of gold. I can get on board with loving all of this release particularly the shadow palettes and delicious shimmering golden powder!

Sneak Peeks: Avon Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand Review and Swatches

Coming July, to a theater near you. Dudes, I so wish I had that awesome announcer guy to lead into this review. Wouldn’t that be hawt? Ok so maybe I’m deranged and think that’s an awesome idea.


Coming in July from Avon is a brand new product, actually a few new products but today I’ll bring you one, Avon Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand. Oh the excitements I just can’t stand it.

Don’t hate me for reviewing this so early k? You can’t get it yet but the Muse’s promises that Jillian Dempsey and Avon are working hard at getting it to you in July, right around the corner.

The Muse likes to think you can thank Mrs. McDreamy for all the cool new changes to Avon lately as she’s the new Avon Global Creative Color Director plus her husband has really cool hair, go Jillian! Yay!

Gee I lost my train of though, sorry. I was going to introduce you to Avon Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand… did you ever want to carry around all your lip products in one slick tube? Liner? Gloss? Lipstick? Check, check, check! I’m not talking about carrying around three separate cosmetics, I’m talking about one single item with all three options available to you.

Likey this idea?

Jump for a review on a cool techy gadget from Avon.

Avon Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand is basically your one stop work horse for lining, filling, and defining in one slick, slim line tube. Ok, I admit that I don’t really feel like toting around three products but I also admit that I don’t use lip liner so this could be potentially pointless for me. However, the fact remains it’s got that superfly, Inspector Gadget-feel which appeals to my geeky nature. I love the idea of a single tube that has all three products housed inside.

How’s it work?

Pull the cap off the top half to get to your lip liner, twist the middle to get to your gloss, and unscrew the bottom to get your lippie. Presto! All your lip goodies in one spot.

I think Avon was trying keep things simple plus offer three products in one value price of $9.50 USD (no worries the Muse bets her life that it’ll be cheaper when it first launches). I don’t think I can deny that Avon makes darn good lip products, remember Avon 24k Gold Lipstick?

So you want the deets on the quality I’m sure.

Here it is. Liner is good, mind you I don’t use liner, but it’s buttery smooth and goes on very nicely. Gloss, very good too, not deeply pigmented but quite shiny and glossy with little to no tack. Lipstick, not sure yet how I’m feeling. It’s not on par with Avon lipsticks I’ve tried before however I’m a tad bias as the color I got, Delicate Rose, is really nude and with a cream finish. Cream finish, nude, yup not so Muse-like. But I will say after lining, filling, and glossing up I really liked the finished results. I normally hate a nude lip look but I liked this.

Avon Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand will be available exclusively through Avon reps starting July in 10 shades but I imagine it’ll pop up for sale online as well, if not we better all get on the horn to our Avon lady (I don’t even have one of those! An Avon Lady that is, I have a phone.). If you’re looking for the convenience of a multitasking lip product that’s easy to tote around this be it kids! I’ll reserve my full judgment after I tried one or more colors as I just don’t Delicate Rose was very me!

What do you think?

Like the idea of carrying it all with you?

Rather just carry around separate products?
