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.

the Balm Cabana Boy Review

If you’re new around these parts you may have missed the drama surrounding the Balm Cabana Boy. Dude, oh my god, so difficult to find. Sephora had released info on it early this Summer but ever after that it was removed and no word about it was around. I later discovered it on a few websites but failed to order it. Finally Sephora slapped it back up and I recently hauled it…ok not so recent, ’bout a month ago. I was quite in love with the Balm Down Boy and of course when I laid eyes on Cabana Boy I got that singing in my blood that was screaming, “Must Have….Must Have…” I imagine you know the sound of that voice in your head that mimics that of a zombie demanding brains for dinner…yes well I get like that with makeup sometimes but it doesn’t come out “Brains………Brains…..” it comes out “Makeup….Makeup…..”

Fact of the matter is when the Balm releases powder blushes in any form I’m normally on line to purchase as they always turn into something very special. And of course the Balm Cabana Boy Blush is special.

Philosophy The Supernatural Moonlight Review

Hey lovies!

The Muse happened to be in Sephora a few days ago and had a peep at the new Philosophy makeup display. Remember how they used to have the skincare against the wall and the shower gels kinda hanging out in a middle rack? At least that’s how mine had it. Anyway…..it’s still like that but now they have an entire display for the cosmetic line. I thought this was rather exciting as I’m hopeful it means good things are coming our way from Philosophy. They really seemed to pay special attention to their color cosmetic line this Fall so maybe they’ll consider releasing more items next season.

Anyway!

‘Nuff of my babblings. How about a Philosophy review to celebrate?

Ahhh the moonlight, isn’t it terribly romantic? A touch on your face creates an instant highlight and a beautiful finish. How can we bottle up the moonlight for our faces?

With Philosophy the Supernatural Moonlight! Instant traces of a luminous glow for your cheeks and face all bottled up with a sponge applicator for easy application.
