Lookiee what the Muse found!
A quad of Vincent Longo’s Wet Diamond Eyeshadow!
Are you excited? I’m excited.
I have a few of these shadows in the full size and I adore them and now two different quads are available with four colors each! Yay!
The shadows are normally $24 each and this palette is $40 ($32 with your Friends and Family Discount this week!) that my dears is a deal and a half!
These shadows are super glittery, super shimmery, big time pigmented, and practically perfect in every way (much like the Muse and Mary Poppins).
The quads come in two color combos which are Cassini and Roja! I’m curious if these are shades I already own because if not I’m all over these and most definitely snatching up some during the discount!

MJ’s website has been updated with the Holiday collection but no cool story *sniff*(not that the Muse can read the story but she likes the pretty flash that goes along with it!) to go with it…hmmm maybe they’ll update upon release! Cross your fingers!
Anyway the goodies are up with pictures!
If you want to see close up shots click here.
Everything looks great but I’d have liked some more then a Majolook palette. It’s very pretty but something special for the holidays would have been nicer!
The Muse wants it all with a few backups
How about you?
There is some slight confusion about Stila’s newest trios and palette in regards to where these actually came from!
These are advertised as “Asia” only but for the record I don’t think they have ever graced the beautiful shores of Asia!
From what I have gathered they were more along the lines of “Asian” inspired and not Asian Exclusive. If you didn’t already know Asia has it’s own little niche for the Stila market and the Stila girls are somewhat alive and kicking within Japan however they are no longer here on the shores of the US. The general impression when the palette and trios were released was that “wow we are getting some Asian exclusives” when the actually case is “wow we are getting some Asian Stila fan “inspired” goodies”.
So don’t ask me what it means to be Asian Stila fan inspired because I haven’t a clue! I’m taking a wild guess that the beautiful girls within Asia were wanting these colors sold in a trio or a palette and thus the Asian “exclusives” (I use the term exclusive very lightly) palettes were born or we can stop making this complicated and just say they look like Holiday palettes to me!
Anyway that’s all rather long and boring but the good news and the non-boring news is that your Muse has nabbed all of the Stila offerings and is here to review them!
The first and my personal favorite would be the Belle of the Ball palette. Yummie is an understatement my friends. First of all let me say I am so pleased to see the Stila girls gracing these packages that I am beyond myself with excitement (it’s the little things that get your Muse excited).
I should mention that this palette is absolutely, positively, amazingly gorgeous! It has 4 perfect shades of glittering, shimmery, yummie, pigmented eyeshadow! It contains a shimmering white, a shimmering aqua greenish color, a shimmering gold, and a shimmering darkish sky blue. You wouldn’t think “holiday” upon seeing these at first but I’m slowly thinking of fantastic ways to use these for the holiday season and hey they’ll make great Spring and Summer colors too!
If you’ve been debating on this for a bit I’d say do yourself a big favor and grab one while they are still in stock! This one, in my humblest opinion, is too good to pass up!
Next up the Eyeshadow Trio in Cool. Cool is nice and pigmented and all the good things you’ll find in a Stila eyeshadow however it’s not a must have. It’s got three gorgeous shades that aren’t overly shimmery which disappoints me. You’ll get a soft lavender, a dark blue, and a creamy white and if you’re like me you’ll basically sit for a while and ponder over how these colors go together. Sigh. Dontcha just hate that?
It’s a nice trio all together and I’m glad I purchased it but it’s not nearly as nice as The Belle of the Ball palette and it can be skipped unless your a serious Stila collector.
Another trio for you but this time in warm colors. Another miss on this in my opinion and unless you’re a collector you can sincerely and seriously skip on it. Warm comes with a peach, beige, and a brown color all of which are kinda boring in the shimmery department. These aren’t exactly matte but they aren’t exactly shimmering shades either. Definitely pigmented that’s for sure!
And lastly a Blush Duo in Peach & Pink. Another you can chalk up to as very nice but nothing to get too excited about! Both shades look a bit on the sheer side, I haven’t yet tried them so I’m not sure. Very nice shades but they might not completely work for my skin tone we shall see!
These are all beautiful items and if you’re a Stila collector you sure are going to want all of them for sure! But if you aren’t so keen on Stila I’d most definitely get my hands on the Belle of the Ball palette as it’s a keeper and a really beautiful palette!
Overall, it’s nice to see the Stila girls gracing the packaging again and I’m loving all of these but the only must have in the lot would be the Belle of the Ball palette!
Tell the Muse!
Ahhhhh! The Muse purchases a lot of these each and every year and her friends go ga-ga over them!
Cargo Glossy Greeting Card as seen on Sephora.com
That little pink dot happens to be a smidgen of Cargo gloss that’s good enough for about three to four uses!
Cool right? Gloss and a Christmas Card! What better way to share your passion for makeup than giving out these cards!
This year’s cards say “Wishing You Health, Happiness, and Glossperity” however the Muse liked last year’s cards better which featured a picture of Santa and beneath read “Here Comes Santa Gloss!”
$10 bucks gets you 5 cards and the Muse deems them perfect for giving to a special sister, best friends, and any true cosmetic lover in your life!
Does Iris EVER fail us?
The first high quality images that I’ve seen for Majorca Majolica’s Holiday Collection have been graciously shared with us by my most lovely mate Iris on Rouge Deluxe!
Head on over and have a tissue ready to catch the drool (or in my case I’m actually foaming at the mouth after seeing this collection!) that will dribble from your mouth!
The new Majolook palette looks amazing as does the Lash Freeze!
I’m thinking I need two Lash Freeze, one eye palette, and powders!
Start making your list and checking it twice as this collection will be out on November 21st (and it can’t come soon enough for eager Muses everywhere!)!
I’m loving that MJ is keeping with the diamond sparkle theme/trend of the season!
