Tarte Holiday Collection 2009: Tarte Crown Jewels LipGloss Gift Set Review and Swatches

Ok, let me so share with you a Musey Christmas story.  When I was little one item I could always look forward to when I was a little Muse would be those Lifesaver Christmas Books.

Please tell me I have a few older readers that remember these?

lifesavers

Basically it came with a life time supply of LifeSavers Candies (8 rolls but it seemed like a life time supply to me when I was a kid) in a little book style packaging.   I’ll bore you no more but the moral of the story is the new Tarte Crown Jewels Lipgloss Set kinda reminds me of that days of old packaging from Lifesavers when I was an ickle baby.

Stila 24K Luxe Lip Gloss Collection Review and Swatches

The Stila Summer Collection 2009 did not get as much publicity as it should have due to problems that cropped up for Stila this season.   As you know Stila did have some downtime due to economy reasons and the likes but was pulled back from the edge thankfully.   During this time I did feel like the Indian Summer Collection didn’t get the credit it richly deserved as it’s one of my favorite releases to date.

This is why I’m ever so pleased that Stila bundled up some of Summer and slapped it into a gift set for Holiday 2009.

Jump ahead for it.

Smashbox Holiday 2009: Smashbox Wish for the Perfect Pout Review and Swatches

I think I was in the 8th grade when I first started watching 90210 and that was only because Luke Perry was considered crazy hotness in the 90’s.  I do know that I never quite got fully “into” it but only watched it a few times because I believe at the time my mum deemed it too racy or some such nonsense.

Anyway.

Moral of the story is I started watching the revamp of 90210 last season because I was trying to relive some part of my youth I suppose.  Turns out the show is a train wreck that I haven’t been able to keep my eyes off of since.  It’s awful.  The actors are all annoying, the story plots are absurd, and it’s complete cheese whiz…but I continue to watch for some reason.

This is getting rather long but I’m telling you this because have you so noticed that they went all budget on the show?   Like what happened to the parents?  They cut them out almost completely.  And Kelly?  Practically gone.  And the great big Hollywood home…finished.  90210 is getting the economy treatment if ever I did see it.  Thank god CW hasn’t cut down on Supernatural otherwise someone would have to hear me whine about it.

SMASHBOX

You know what else is getting economized this year?  Makeup!  But unlike 90210 that’s a good deal as far as this Muse is concerned.

Stila Holiday 2009: Stila Lip Glaze Collection Review and Swatches

Since our economy tanked I’ve noticed I’m totally spoiled with spending less and getting more lately. The cosmetic deals in general are completely killer lately aren’t they? Everyone and their mum is packing up awesome steals and deals and slapping a super cheap price tag on it. The Muse finds herself looking at items and randomly shouting SOLD! really loudly when she sees a cool deal…ok, I don’t really shout it out loud but I’m normally very close to doing it.

This year Stila happens to give us more for less with it’s new Lip Glaze Collection for 2009. This is $25 bucks and includes 8 Stila Lip Glazes…can you say total cheapness?
