The Muse’s list of wants is every growing! She can think of a few items she’s gagging to add to her stash.
Check it below!
With it’s smudge free, waterproof formula this Muse can get excited about Make Up For Ever Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow. Plus doesn’t it look like the blackest, black liner you ever did see?
I can’t stress the overwhelming feeling of want when it comes to Dior Addict Lip Glow
. Just a touch of customized lip color? Yes, please.
Sephora Cooling Cover Stick conceals plus preps and primes lids for shadows for $12 bucks. Not a bad deal! The Muse wants to take it for a spin as she does with almost all concealers she meets up with!
I feel the love for Guerlain Summer 2009
, need I say much more?
Splish, Splash! I want Philosophy Apricots and Cream
in my shower this Summer!
One tends to forget about MAC Creation Hues
but not when they smell like roses! The Muse sniffed this overlooked fragrance for the first time this weekend and fell in lust! Wants it!
Tried one, now I need them all! Bobbi Brown Sheer Gloss
These are a few of my Most Wanted Beauty items of the moment. Share a few of yours in the comment box!
The Muse listens, honest she does. She’s gotten numerous requests asking for a review and swatches of the new Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush. One new shade was introduced, Pink Coral, which was quite appealing for my Summer Blush series but I got soooo many requests for a review and a spotlight on it that I just decided why not Muse it by itself instead of having it become lost in a series post!
So here it is, as per alot of requests, Product Musings on Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Pink Coral.
With the barest hint of sparkle, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blushes are sure to please anyone who prefers a non-matte blush formula. Pink Coral is one of the newest shades available in this formula and ideal for Summer-wear. It’s a gorgeous shade of coral with a tiny kiss of pink! If you’re desiring a sweet pop of peach on your cheeks Pink Coral will do the job well. Although the “shimmer” maybe scare you, rest assured it’s a barely there shimmer that’s very subtle and pretty.
The silky formula glides on well and blends beautifully leaving behind plenty of pigmented color so remember a little goes a very long way. Use the blush in it’s own pan or pop it out and place it in one of the Bobbi Brown Customize palettes to create your own unique compact.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush are fantastic and Pink Coral is a beautiful shade to Muse about this sunny day! The only rant the Muse has is the blushes are only available in seven shades, boo can we has more now?
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Pink Coral (or any shade) is Muse Approved for purchase.
There is something so terribly appealing about puffing my entire body down with a big slab of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick! And lookiee here now I can fulfill that need with the brand new Neiman Marcus Exclusive Bobbi Brown Exclusive Shimmer Brick for Body & All Over Body Brush!
Available exclusively at Neiman Marcus the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for Body & All Over Body Brush is all about creating a bit of shimmering dazzle on legs, arms, decollete, or anywhere else you’re wanting to shimmer yourself down. Mind you this kind of treatment doesn’t come cheap! The palette is $75 USD and the brush, yes it’s sold separately, is $85 USD! Whoa.
But of course this doesn’t prevent me from wanting it any less. The Muse likes the idea of sitting around and brushing shimmer everywhere and anywhere but of course she does think a bunch of craft glitter in a bucket, dumped over her head might be a bit cheaper but it doesn’t have Bobbi’s name on it now does it?
Yes, indeed, I wants it, rather badly.
Count the Muse bored when she seen the new Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara which was launched with the Bobbi Brown Nautical Collection. Ho-hum not a whole lot of special going on here kids.
With a promise of making the most of every lash this mascara is supposed to separate, curl, and give lashes perfect definition plus it’s safe for contact lens wearers too! Supposedly the unique multi-comb brush is the key to the amazing results….yes well that’s one of the reasons the Muse was bored. That brush looked terribly boring! What was so special about this mascara?
This is a perfect reason why you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Although Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara looks very unappealing it actually does exactly what it promises and than some. Quite a nice mascara and a tad surprising for this Muse.
I’m one for looking for mascaras with elaborate brushes. I shop mascara brushes as I would a brand new car. It has to have tons of bells and whistles. Nothing normal or standard will do, hey kids this isn’t 1950 where one brush reigns supreme. We have so many options now a days why settle for a brush with a straight line and simple bristles when you can have curved, plastic, or straight!
But leave it to Bobbi to prove a Muse wrong.
Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara does an incredible job of grasping all lashes, pulling up and out, defining, curling, and offering nice plump results with plenty of length. The formula stays on all day and keeps curl twice as long plus at the end of a long day it simply washes away with a little warm water! Loves it! Although the brush looks standard but looks indeed can be deceiving as it does an amazing job of keeping lashes looking lovely all day long.
At $22 USD it’s decently priced for a counter mascara that delivers. Well worth checking out, it has the potential to become a fast favorite with this Muse. Likey!

With the Summer coming at us full speed ahead, I’m sure we are all thinking about how best to minimize our makeup. Lighter makeup is always the order of business as the hot weather approaches and what better way to keep it fresh than with the new Bobbi Brown Nautical Collection releasing this May!
The Muse arranged for a little sneak peek of this collection so jump ahead for a peep!
Available in six shades Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tint are chubby, travel friendly tubes of pigmented cheek color that glide on quickly and leave behind a glow of color. At $22 USD I wasn’t so sure on the price of these since they are half the size of a normal stick blush plus Bobbi Brown Rouge is $22 per a pot…you can see my dilemma here probably. Aside from the rant about it’s size I do think it’s a rather great little product plus I like how travel friendly it is and in a way I do like the size as I’ll run through it quickly rather than have it sit around for months because it’s just TOO much product.
The colors I tried were Sheer Pink and Sheer Coral. Sheer Coral is gorgeous and Orgasm-like shade, very peachy and pretty. Sheer Pink is a pretty sheer pink that gives a nice fresh glow. Both shades allow for sheer or bolder application. I didn’t find that these lasted as long as the potted rouge so reapplication was necessary after around 5 hours of wear.
All in all I like these alot for traveling and do like that they are tiny simply because I have plenty of product to get through. If you’re looking for nice, healthy color that’s light and fresh for the warmer weather, these make a great treat!
Also releasing with Bobbi Brown Nautical Collection is the new Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Gloss in four shades. I only have one of the four colors and I must pick up the other three as they are rather fantastic. At first glance of the promo photos I was thinking these were a lip stain. They aren’t a stain but a rather nice tacky, glossy, natural looking gloss that makes lips look quite fresh and sexy. The gloss is sheer with a tiny bit of color. It’s sticky enough to wear quite long and it goes rather nicely with the cheek tints to create a very natural, fresh look. I tried the shade Popsicle which is a very sheer pink. I liked the gloss alot and I looking forward to picking up the other shades when they are available in store.
The Bobbi Brown Nautical Collection keeps beauty natural and fresh this Summer. If you like a barely there face this collection is sure to please. I loved the FOTD’s I did for them as I thought I looked younger, fresher, and very natural using the products in the collection. Quite nice of you’re a fan of the minimal makeup look.

If you’re a beauty junkie you probably already knew that QVC had an all day beauty event on Saturday. As tempting as it was to stay inside and just watch beauty on the tube, the weather was too nice to resist the temptation of outdoor play so this Muse Tivo’ed up everything that was on this Saturday and fast forwarded through it early this morning to get a peep at what she missed!
After fast forwarding briefly I came across two or three items I had to have but was somewhat relieved that it wasn’t a ton of must have items.
Here’s what I hauled:
I’m not sure why but I got a bit crazy with all the Laura Geller items offered. It seemed like such a good deal and the Kiss and Bake set. The few times I’ve tried Laura’s baked goodies they have always been a tad chalky but I decided what the heck, might as well re-try ‘em!
As for the Bobbi Brown, obviously you can see why I love these shadows plus I thought it wasn’t too bad a deal for all three.
I’m looking forward to scrolling through the rest of my Tivo’ed recordings to see what else was offered on Saturday!
What did you haul?
It’s that time again kids! Time for a Beauty Battle! Taking two of my favorite cream blushes and battling them again each other should make for an awesome fight. Stila Convertible Color versus Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge to the death!
Let the game begin!
Let me tell you this is sadly not much of a battle as it’s easy enough to see who will win here but let’s have a go and see what you think after I’ve butted these two against each other!
Stila Convertible Color comes housed in a cute little palette with embedded flowers on it’s lid and a nice full size mirror for on the fly application. Packaging wise Stila has it going on. When compared to Bobbi’s very minimal black pot design there isn’t much of a question which is the cuter of the two. Placing cuteness aside Stila Convertible Color has alot of catching up to do in the price and size department. At 0.15 oz in size with a price tag of $25 USD, Stila has alot of work to do to catch our attention aside from sweet packaging.
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge def doesn’t have the cute factor in it’s ring but it has the size and the price tag to please! No mirror here and no cutesy flower compact but a $22 USD price tag and a size of a whopping 0.38 oz makes Bobbi Brown a fierce competitor for Stila Convertible Color. So that’s over double the size of Stila plus $3 bucks cheaper? Uh oh Stila look out!
Both formulas are incredibly long wearing and can easily be considered almost an identical product.
Stila takes a sucker punch from Bobbi Brown in the color department. With merely 7 shades and Bobbi coming up on 10! Things are starting to tip dangerously in favor of Bobbi’s side here. Stila defends itself with a quick punch to the left and snaps up about LE color releases for Stila Convertible Color but can we swayed by cute packaging, a few LE colors, and a high price tag? Probably not.
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge wins this beauty battle kids! Great formula, long wearing, a huge size for a nice price tag makes it the champion in this fight. Sorry Stila…it was obvious from the start you weren’t going to win this one. We love you but your size and price leaves a bit to be desired.
How about you?
Is Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge your winner?
Or is Stila Convertible Color your champion?
Tell the Muse!
Oh Bobbi you always know the exact right thing to perk a Muse up! Your Nautical Collection makes me want to sail away! Must be that fresh look your model is wearing with her subtle navy eye shadow, gently flushed cheeks, and come kiss me lips.
Gorgeous is an understatement!
Keeping it soft and simple is the order of business with Bobbi Brown Nautical Collection. As the weather becomes hotter a full face of makeup becomes less and less appealing. Something softer, lighter is always a welcome relief and also flattering and pretty.
Step it up with four shades of Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Lip Gloss which is the newest gloss formula from Bobbi. It’s super sheer with just a hint of kiss me color. Available in four shades for a limited time for $20 USD each.
- Marina Pink
- Cabana Coral
Just a touch of color for cheeks makes for a perfect light weight makeup this Summer. Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tint gives cheeks a sheer, natural touch of color in an easy to use swivel-stick! Available in six luscious shades for $22 USD each, but snag ‘em fast before they are gone for good!
- Sheer Raspberry
- Sheer Lilac
- Sheer Pink
- Sheer Mauve
- Sheer Coral
- Sheer Blackberry
And finally a touch of mascara to define eyes. New Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara makes the most of every lash with one sweep of the wand! Available for $24 USD
The Muse will take all of those glosses thanks so much! They look delicious! This collection is kinda calling my name at the moment and I’m looking forward to taking it for a spin. It’ll be especially nice for the warmer weather and makes for great light packing when traveling on holiday! Likey! Wants it!
What do you think?
Dying for some Nautical fun from Bobbi?

My pink radar is currently tuned into Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Confetti. Loves it!
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Confetti was released with the Bobbi Brown Platinum Collection and in my opinion easily ignored since it’s a simple, sheer pink shade. But remember kids try not to judge a book my it’s cover!
The shade does look a tiny bit dull in the tube but on my lips is looks stunning. It’s a nude pink that gives me lips a full look while coloring them a natural, sweet shade of pink! Although it’s supposed to be a shimmer formula I got more of a pearl finish to the gloss which I normally don’t like but exceptions are made for such a lovely color.
The formula has quite a bit of tack and stick so it’s incredibly long wearing however I do detest the lip brush that comes with all BB glosses. Why oh why do they always split!? It drives me quite mad and makes me grumpy as hell! Aside from that one minor rant I think Confetti is worth checking out before it’s gone for good!
Great shade, loves it and Muse Approving it for purchase!
Did you haul Confetti?
Loving it as much as the Muse?

The Muse is always up for new Bobbi so when she seen the new Bobbi Brown Lip Quads I could feel myself get giddy!
Ok, so these are super cool right? And not too badly priced! $20 bucks snags you four shades! But I was thinking to myself how strange it is that these can be popped out of their compacts and placed in one of the Bobbi customizable palettes.
They must be really, really tiny if they can fit inside one of those palettes?! How big are the lippies? Dime size?
Seeing is believing! Guess I have to haul to see it for myself!
