The Muse is shivering with anticipation over iridescent shades of pink and orange blush from Givenchy’s Spring Collection.
If Givenchy Sari Glow Iridescent Blush gives me half the glow I got using the Givenchy Prisme Again! Blush Quartet in Glowing Rose, you can count this Muse a happy girl!
Available in a sizzling pink and a gorgeous popping orange the blush promises a silky soft formula and a gorgeous flush of color for cheeks! I’m very interested in ordering both shades of the blush for myself as I think they’ll be ideal colors for pairing up with MAC Manish Aurora Eyeshadow Palette, glosses, and lippies for a bright, fun Spring (and Summer) look!
From what I understand the blushes may be a baked version of Givenchy’s normal blushes which has me curious about the pigmentation. Generally I love Givenchy’s blush range so I’m on board for picking up both of these.
Currently the price is $42 USD each which I find quite nice as Givenchy continues on it’s new “lower” range. Why do I get the feeling they’d be marked at $50 USD if all was well with the economy? I’m all for embracing Givenchy’s new prices, that’s unquestionable!
Keep this Muse in mind for a review soon!
What do you think of the Givenchy Spring Collection 2009?
How about these blushes?
Tell the Muse!
Givenchy always holds a special place in this Muse’s heart. The Givenchy Spring Collection 2009 sure does look interesting and I can see myself picking up at least one or two of the items they are offering up!
I’m such a little nit picker but as gorgeous as the items are don’t you think they are a tad warm for Spring? I’m more of the mind that lighter, breezier shades are more flattering come Spring. This looks a tad bit too Summery! Not that I’m complaining I firgure I can haul it and stash away until June! Love, love those red lippies!
What do you think?
Trash or Stash!?

“Are you the Spirit, sir, whose coming was foretold to me?” asked the Muse.
The voice was soft and gentle. Singularly low, as if instead of being so close beside her, it were at a distance.
“Who, and what are you?” the Muse demanded.
“I am the Ghost of Christmas Collections Past.”
The Muse is quite fond of rehashing her past and remembering collections that caught her fancy over the years. Take a step back in time with her and remember Holiday Collections from 2007 that brought joy and excitement to us all!
The Muse has always had a special fondness for Aube Shower Jewelry Eyes, just the name along has been an endless source of joy and amusement for this Muse and she did so love and adore the Aube Shower Jewelry Eyes Holiday Palette in EX02. Cool shimmering shades of light blue, white, and brown topped with a grayish liner created the perfect sophisticated holiday eye! With the release of the palette Aube also gifted us with two loose shimmering powders which came in a lovely little glass bottle! Truly a Holiday Collection that excited this Muse!

On the heels of Aube’s release came Majolica Majorica’s Holiday Collection which granted our Christmas wishes and brought to us two shimmering Majolook Palettes that would later become my very favorite shades when brought together with my other MJ palettes. Keeping in the theme of sparkling colors MJ also released a shimmering silver mascara overcoat and a sparkling white face, eye, and body powder! This collection has since topped the Muse’s list as a favorite collection released from Majorca Majolica!

Jill Stuart always keeps a special place in my heart even though many releases are quite repetitious of colors past. This year I didn’t feel the need to indulge in the Holiday Coffret but last year I did get tempted by all the sparkling, light hues of the Christmas palette!

Although the Muse sometimes gets a bit ranty and disappointed over Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks she’s almost always on the bandwagon to purchase a new one, especially limited edition ones, as soon as they release. Last year she dove fully into her purchase of the Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick and although she never truly made proper use of it she still looks at it fondly and is happy it graces her collection.

This year the Muse liked but didn’t love the Bare Escentuals Ruby Collection but last year she fondly recalls loving each and every release that Bare Escentuals graced us with! The Holiday Collections from BE last year were something that the Muse still can’t forget!
The crisp coolness of the Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection thrilled the Muse to bits and she still gets hyper each time she whips out her BE Diamond Gossamer powder!
A tale and a review of Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection
Following closely behind Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection was the QVC release of Bare Minerals bareGold Luxury Color Collection and soon after the Nordstrom release of Bare Escentuals Pure Platinum Collection!
The amount of gossamer powder that the Muse ended up hauling with each gift set should last her well into the years to come!

The Muse let the holiday get away from her this year and in doing so she forgot a few small pieces here and there she wanted to pick up! The NARS Holiday Palette this year was on this Muse’s list but never quite made it into her cart (maybe soon) but she does so remember getting her NARS Night Series Palette last year and holding it in her greedy, sweaty palms as she gleefully smiled down at it!

Thinking back on the Lavshuca Winter Make Collection the Muse recalls her excitement however she does feel kinda let down that the cardboard palettes from this collection didn’t fair well into 2008! But it doesn’t keep her from recalling how truly lovely and brilliant she thought they were when she first laid eyes on them.

To this day the mystery behind Stila’s “Asia” Only palettes amuses this Muse…Asia only? What? Huh? Confuddled am I! Even though the mystery remains the Muse still loving caresses each of those palettes as they brought back her beloved Stila girls! The packaging was too delightful to resist and the Muse pleads with Stila please more Stila girls! Some of us, after all, miss them crazily!
Enjoy a review on the release of Stila “Asia” Only Palettes from last Holiday Season!
Disappointment sometimes reigns supreme with MAC Holiday if you’re an old school collector but the Muse does still give thanks and praise for the release of the MAC Royal Assets Metallic Eyes Palette!

It wasn’t too much of a problem falling deeply in love with a few items from MAC’s Antiquitease Color Collection. The Muse was particularly thrilled to bits and maybe pieces too by Red Romp Lipglass, Queen’s Sin Lipstick, and Uppity Fluidline! The Muse sends blessings to MAC each day for introducing to red lippie items that actually work well for this Muse!

Is there any ever doubt that perfection and luxury is housed in all Guerlain compacts? Purple was the order of business for Guerlain Holiday 2008 but last year gold…gold reigned supreme over Guerlain Holiday 2007!

Diamonds were a girl’s best friend this year and they happened to be just as friendly last year when the Muse got her claws into the Givenchy Diamantismme Holiday Collection! To this day the Givenchy Prisme Solitaire All Over Diamond Powder holds a special place of honor on my vanity!

I’m kinda still on my bubblegum pink gloss craze! Remember when I was all about shades of bubblegum pink?
With Givenchy Holiday 2008 they introduced thee most gorgeous shade of pink and the Muse had to have it to add to her array of pink glosses! Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystal in Rose by Night is a sheer, shimmering pink shade sure to suit your cooler Holiday looks this season! The beautiful rosy shade has a healthy dose of shimmering gold and pink with a nice base pink shade that’s pretty much pigmented to wear on it’s own or over your favorite lipstick. Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystal has just the right amount of tack so your gloss lasts for quite a while between touch ups. As for the packaging it’s done in the new fireworks theme for the Givenchy Holiday Collection 2008. Pretty!
