At first glance I wasn’t sure I needed the MAC A Tartan Tale but soon after I seen the eyeshadows and promptly fell in love.
The shadows are so gorg and fun you’ll probably want ’em after seeing this post.
Let’s check out a few pieces from the MAC A Tartan Tale Color Collection.
Just when you though Bobbi was all about playing it safe she releases the Crystal Eye Palette. Now Bobbi Brown injects color here and there on occasion but for the most part she’s a professional and keeps to slicker shades of browns, golds, and other colors that work well in a business environment or for more elegant makeup.
I will say prior to starting Musings I was all about loud and outrageous colors of eyeshadow and well into my first years of Musings I was still about that. But I’ve gotten older and I’ve gotten very appreciative of what a single shade of good brown eyeshadow can do for my eyes. I can thank Bobbi Brown for that.
Now for the Holidays, Bobbi got a little crazy and for the first time since I was introduced to the brand she injected a little color into one of her new Holiday palettes.
The Bobbi Brown Crystal Eye Palette for the most part are as wild as Bobbi gets with shades of purple and white however she also included a popping shade of teal eyeshadow that may just surprise you. Go on now Bobbi, getting all crazy on us!
E.L.F. Cosmetics has several new kits which feature a smoky eye theme for $5. The kits include everything you need to create the perfect traditional smoky eye look (black) or a brown smoky eye.
The sets each include:
- E.L.F. Eyeshadow Trio
- E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner
- E.L.F. Mechanical Eye Lash Curler
- E.L.F. Professional Eye Shadow Brush
- E.L.F. Lengthening & Defining Mascara
At $5 you’re paying a buck each per an item in the set. Not bad eh? I do find E.L.F. products hit or miss in most cases but I still like to try things out to see what might be a winner and what might be a big old FAIL.
I purchased the E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown because I’m really into smoky brown looks lately thanks to the Urban Decay Naked Palette plus it seems interesting enough for my Beauty on a Budget category.
Was it worth it?

I totally found the perfect vampy Fall lip shade! Gasp! I didn’t think I’d ever come across a shade that actually worked well for a vampy lip but the Lancome Cult Rouge French Touch Lipstick in Cherry Kiki is it! These are a set of limited edition collector lipsticks that celebrate Lancome’s 75th Anniversary. The shades are available at Neiman Marcus and Saks if you’re lemming them.
I can’t believe how deep we are into Fall already. I feel like yesterday was Summer. Seriously, last week I had my AC on because it was so warm and this week I have my heat on because it’s so much cooler in the evening.
Nothing captured Fall this year for me like The Body Shop Smoke & Mirrors Collection. The face powder alone were enough to send me into fits of joy! Honestly, The Body Shop releases some killer limited edition sets and the new Smoke & Mirrors Collection for Fall 2010 happens to be one of this collections that has some incredible offerings that you should be hauling for a warm, Fall look.
With the Holidays in our face so incredibly quickly this year, it’s nice to step back and look at a bit of Fall.
