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=love.

Product Musings: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Pink Coral


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.

Neiman Marcus Exclusive Bobbi Brown Exclusive Shimmer Brick for Body & All Over Body Brush

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.

Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Eye Definer


Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Eye Definer? K, sign me up!

Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Eye Definer available in four shades is a brand new gel liner to create a precise line on eyes or use a base for creating a perfect smoky eye look! I believe this comes with a brush as well for $27 USD, super duper, def has me with the brush option!

Although only four shades are available I’m a fan of Kevyn Aucoin so I’ll overlook that minor flaw. Count me curious! Wants to try this one!
