Ahhh tools! Anyone that does some sort of trade has a set of tools. Mechanics, Carpenters, and of course, most important, Make Up Artists. These tools are used to sometimes fix something or create something entirely new.
Although I’m not a make up artist I still have my fair share of beauty tools that I favor each and everyday to apply my makeup and create my eye looks.
As the New Year starts, take a step back with me as I look through some of my very favorite beauty tools.
I’m so on board with the new Napoleon Perdis Gilty Pleasures Holiday Collection. One item that particularly has me crazed is the Napoleon Perdis Bronze Bonanza Set, must order this and own this and has it for my very own. I got the Napoleon Perdis French Riviera Gift Set on clearance last year and loved it so of course the Bronze Bonanza Set caught my eye right away!
Anyway…today isn’t about bronze.
It’s about the Napoleon Perdis Shake, Rattle and Brush Roll Set released as part of the Gilty Pleasures Holiday Collection!
Today the Muse is all about buffing powder onto my face with the new Sonia Kashuk Twist & Shout Kabuki Brush for Holiday 2009.
It’s ok, it’s ok everyone remain calm I promise I will not go into a long rant about how much I love the Beatles and how Twist and Shout was one of thee greatest songs circa their 60’s era (don’t get me started on the 70’s or John era that story is way too long for this post).
I will bring you some Ferris.
I mean come on how 80’s-tastic was that scene? Almost as good as when he started lipping Wayne Newton’s Danke Schoen.
Bueller, Bueller, Anyone?

I know you’re all very, very excited about the release of the Sonia Kashuk Holiday Collection 2009 as I got dozens of e-mails requesting a review and asking when it’ll be in stores.
Here’s the deets.
I traveled through Target late Sunday night to pick up some last minute party stuff for Halloween and of course I hit up the makeup section. As of yet it hasn’t been updated with Holiday and as of last look it was displayed on Target’s site as having a 3-4 week wait prior to shipping. Good news is it’s available for shipping on Target when I checked today and a reader even said she got her stuff in the mail already plus you can get free shipping with your $50 purchase (don’t forget to shop around for coupons as Target has 10% ones hanging around), bad news is as of yet it’s not available in store from what I’ve seen but have no fear I imagine that situation will be redeemed very, very shortly.
Even better news is I have an early preview of the collection and I’m hear to say wow…elegant and inexpensive, unheard of right? But indeed Sonia managed to combine budget friendly options plus a beautiful air of elegance to each piece.
For my first review of the collection I’ll be showing you the brand new Sonia Kashuk Twist of Fate Brush Set.
Jump for it.
The Muse is all about easy clean up when it comes to fall out. I have a serious problem with fall out. Ugh. I’ve taken to wrapping a finger in scotch tape and using it to pick up any glittery bits and bobs but occasionally I do run out of the house with all sorts of wack on my face. Shrug. Oh wells.
Over a year ago I discovered and reviewed for you life saving Shadow Shields. My god these so changed the way I did makeup. They are basically a thin cotton pad cut in a half moon shape with a stick back. You stick this under your eye and it easily captures your shadow fall out for easy clean up. Loves it!
Now get this.
Sephora has shadow shields! ha!
Yup, yup now you can get ‘em at Sephora. Interesting right?
I do suggest getting them directly from Shadow Shields though as you get 30 for $9.99 where as the Sephora Brand are 30 for $16. But hey I think it’s awesome that Sephora has ‘em now since it’s easy enough to hop in store and snag some when I run low rather than waiting on shipping.
Anyone a Shadow Shield user?
How do you battle fall out woe?
