Stila Holiday 2009 Stila Smudge Pot Collection Review and Swatches

Yes, yes it’s early but Stila graces us with it’s Holiday Collection already.   Gotta  enjoy sharing the love of cool Holiday makeup two months before Christmas.

This year the Stila Holiday Collection 2009 graces us with a few gift sets.  As of yet I haven’t seen palettes but I’m not losing hope yet as Stila has a way of creeping up on us.  Plus we do have to give them some breathing room since they are rebuilding.

The good news is the gift sets are inexpensive as sin.  It’s alot of product packed into one place with a small price and even a To and From field if you’re giving instead of getting for yourself.

Jump ahead to enjoy swatches and a review of the Stila Smudge Collection.

Beauty on a Budget: EOS Lip Balm Review

Let me bring you back a little bit, Fall 2007 to be exact.  Lancome releases the Mystery Game and the Muse proceeds to flip out and find a new love of her life, the Lancome Baume Baiser.  Since that time I’ve been through three of these thanks to the Lancome Outlet in Atlantic City having them handy…..currently I’m on my last one and probably won’t get another unless I really look hard as the shop no longer has them.

Flash forward to present day and find the Muse slicking her lips with inexpensive, tasty EOS Lip Balm.   Hello dupe-tastic!   These smooth spheres are tasty, cheap as day old chips, and mimic that of my beloved Lancome Baume Baiser.

Thank Jebus for answering my prays.

All hail and rejoice ultra cool lip balm that’s inexpensive and readily available without the dreaded LE (Limited Edition) curse attached to it…oh and organic and good for you too.

IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody Review and Swatches

Oooooo chicas let me tell you.  It’s icy cold outside.   It’s been a weird few days in my little city as the weather is more Winter than Fall.   But we had a few warm Fall days around these parts and lord knows it’s my very fav time of the year.

I’m celebrating Fall with Isadora Bohemian Rhapsody today.   It’s a rather fab little collection that’s inexpensive and quite sitting with the season plus it carries the name of my very favorite song from Queen what more could a girl want?  Did I ever tell you about my Freddy Mercury obsession?  Wait…maybe we’ll skip that chat otherwise we’ll never get to the review.

What was I saying? Oh yes the IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody Collection!

Bourjois Paris Coup de Theatre Mascara Review

This morning the Muse is raking her brain trying to remember the first time she tried Bourjois Paris Corps Mascara. Gosh, it had to be ten years ago at least. Do you guys remember it? It was a dual mascara with a primer on one side and a mascara on the other. Actually at the time the entire idea and design was unique to anything anyone had out on the market.

Anyway….

Reason I’m taking my little trip down memory lane today is because I’ve been test driving the brand new Bourjois Paris Corps de Theatre 2 in 1 Mascara and loving all over it. For the longest time Bourjois was my go to brand for great mascara and it’s nice to see them release something new.

VOV Castledew Eyeshadow Review

Lordie I don’t think I’ve blogged the joys of VOV Castledrew Eye Shadow yet.  How remiss of me not to introduce you to these tiny little pots of funky color that are so absurdly inexpensive you won’t believe it.

VOV is a Korean brand with a slew of cute little finds that are incredibly inexpensive but manage to pack alot of quality.  Like most Korean brands it’s all the quality at a fraction of the cost.   If you’re having a lem or two after my post I suggest checking out E-bay to see what deals are hanging out.
