Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick

My little eye spies a new Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick at Nordies!

This brand new shimmer brick is entitled Copper Diamond and available for $40 USD exclusively at Nordstrom at the moment!

Although the packaging is brand new the Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick looks quite similiar to the limited edition gold version that I already have. This is one of those must see items in store before I decide if I need it as the resemblance to my Bobbi Brown Gold Shimmer Brick is uncanny!

Do I want it? Hells yes! But first the Muse must investigate further to see how similiar these two are!

Seen this?

Putting it on your wish list?

Prescriptives Holiday Collection 2008: AGLOW

image002

I’ve taken a look at the Prescriptives AGLOW champaign and I must say I’m duly impressed and eager to see it on counters!

Prescriptives Holiday Collection AGLOW will be available on counters and on the Prescriptives website in November, I’m happy see that Prescriptives is taking things slow and giving us room to enjoy the beautiful Fall season, I wish more companies would consider the same!

image006

I like the looks of virtually everything that’s available from this collection but I’m seriously lemming the Prescriptives Winter Reflections All-Over-Highlighter which is limited edition compact of soft, shimmering pearls to highlighting the face with shades of white, beige, and pink! You can use these on face or body which makes them a great multitasking product!

Prescriptives is also releasing two limited edition eye shadow quads in a Warm and Cool version. The Prescriptives Winter Reflections Eye Color Quad comes housed in a platinum mirror compact and contain four coordinating shimmering shades of color! I have my eye on the cool version but the warm version looks equally as nice!

Prescriptives Winter Reflections Eye Color Quad Warm

  • Chestnut (New & LE shade)
  • Brunette (New & LE Shade)
  • Suede (New & LE Shade)
  • Banana

Prescriptives Winter Reflections Eye Color Quad Cool

  • Oyster (New & LE Shade)
  • Twinkle (New & LE Shade)
  • Eclipse (New & LE Shade)
  • Shell

Prescriptives is also releasing a brand new Blush More or Less shade in Santa Fe Sun.

For lips Prescriptives has several limited edition shades of gloss and lipstick available in the following selections:

Prescriptives Coloruscope Lip Gloss (All Shades are LE)

  • Twinkling
  • Peachy
  • Rosy
  • Icy

Prescriptives Colourscope Lipcolor

  • Golden Quartz (LE)
  • True Bronze
  • Winter Rose (LE)
  • Wisteria

All in all I really like the looks of this collection and hopefully will nab some to review for you soon! I’m highly interesting in checking out the shimmering pearls for sure!

How about you?

Isadora Holiday Collection 2008: IsaDora Diamond Ring with Gloss Review

The evil allure and temptation of IsaDora’s Holiday Collection got me good! I found myself captivated by the gorgeous IsaDora Diamond Ring with Gloss….I guess what they say is true…..Diamonds (and gloss too!) are a girl’s best friend!

I’m unsure if it was the sparkling Swarovski crystals or the gloss housed inside that captured my heart when I seen this glittering cocktail ring but I do know I’ll be sporting it happily through the season, in fact I’m wearing it today! Why wait for the Holidays!?

The IsaDora Diamond Ring is a quite a heavy piece of jewelry! Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a wimpy little ring with a cute gloss thrown it! Far from it! The piece has a sterling silver quality and is quite a fashionable piece of custom jewelry! I’m a sucker for jewelry so this totally appeals to that side of my nature. The ring is an oval style triangle decorated with Swarovski crystals and baring the IsaDora name sake on it’s side.

Wear it out for a bit of bling and slyly slip it open for gloss touch up on the go! The ring slides open to reveal a shimmering pink gloss to slick on lips on the fly!

As you can see it’s difficult to resist all that shine, sparkle, and glimmer! Pairing up elegant jewelry and lipgloss…..total perfection! The Muse likey!

The IsaDora Holiday Collection 2008 has wormed it’s way into my heart and I’ll be indulging in further items very shortly! Look out for my review on the yummie palette soon!

Urban Decay Heavy Metal EyeLiner Gift Set

Tis the Season for bling or so they tell me (not really it’s only freaking October sheesh!)! Honestly, I don’t need a particular Holiday or Season to want shimmer, glitter, and sparkle in my daily makeup routine!

Picture+002

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liners have a huge cult following and it’s not difficult to firgure out why! These are some of thee most intense glitter liners I’ve had the pleasure of collecting (I have almost all the shades available!) and although a few companies have jumped on board the glitter liner express train none measure up to the beauty that is a Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liner (see the reviews for yourself on MUA!)

Picture+004

Picture+005

Supposing you wanted to indulge in three shades of Heavy Metal Liner right now…did you know it would set you back $54 USD and tax…ouchie but well worth it!

What if I told you, you could get all three for $32 bucks….! Sound good?

Well, you can!

Urban Decay has a brand new trio of available now for $32 USD which includes three full size Heavy Metal Liners in the following shades:

  • Metalhead (Purple)
  • Glam Rock (Silver)
  • Stage Diva (Aqua)

Picture+0161

Picture+009

Stage Diva is exclusive to the trio gift set and not available as a single liner purchase so that makes this set a bit more special!

The liners are intense glitter overload so if you love a bit of sparkle and glimmer for the Holiday Season these will do the job on the double! Not many companies make glitter liners and those who do (MAC, Too Faced, Etc..) haven’t quite perfected the great formula of Heavy Metal Liners. Other brands you have to keep going over the liner to build color and glitter up where as Heavy Metal liners offer a quick stroke and go method as they are heavily laced with nice chunks of glitter!

I simply adore topping a smokey eye look with some Glam Rock or I use these as lash sparkles by smoothing the small application brush onto my lashes after my mascara has tried down, this creates a sparkling lash look!

Whether you use these in a bold, outrageous way or for a more suble sparkle, they make any eye look pop and sizzle especially during Christmas parties, New Year, or in the Muse’s case who needs no excuse to bling herself out, anytime is a good time!

These are available now from Urban Decay Cosmetics do check ‘em out they’d make a fab gift for someone or yourself…..go on you know you want ‘em!

Want more Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liner color selections? CLICK!

While you’re visiting Urban Decay do check out the Urban Decay Book of Shadows, it’s thee must have palette of the Season in my opinion! I’ll be reviewing it soon for you!
