Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer Review & Swatches

Stila Stay All Day Foundation

Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer is a newly launched long wearing base from the brand for Fall 2012. This somehow replaces, I guess, their One Step Makeup Foundation which I loved and they proceeded to axe from the master line.

I don’t think I like Stay All Day Foundation as much as I did One Step but it does prove convenient for travel if you’re looking for your concealer and foundation to be housed under the same roof so to speak.

Take a look!

Tarte Amazon Escape Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Tarte Amazon Escape Amazonian Clay Eye Cheek Palette 1

The new Tarte Amazon Escape Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette raced across my desk today. I decided to have a little play with it because girls (and guys) I need an escape. My week is brutal. I’m having a hard time catching up and a trip to the Amazon with Joe at my side is all I need.

This stylish mirrored clutch features eye and cheek essentials infused with Amazonian Clay, sorry Joe’s sweat isn’t technically in the formula…!

Lunasol Shining Eyes Review & Swatches

Lunasol Shining Eyes 1

This a little late of a review since Lunasol Shining Eyes were released Spring 2010. But I realized I never reviewed them here on Musings and decided to do so today.

I’m a big fan of this type of Japanese cream eyeshadow. Many, many brands have a similar sort of product however, my first try with them were from Visee.

Let’s take a look!

Lush Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipstick Review & Swatches

Lush Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipstick

So how we feeling about Lush Emotional Brilliance so far? Lush launches themselves back into the world of cosmetics with this range of makeup. I say “back into” since they have already had a makeup line a few years ago called B Never.

B Never was fancy and posh and terribly alluring but Lush Emotional Brilliance is more industry for me. It’s very modern yet has an old world alchemy feel about it as well.

Lush’s “Spin the Wheel” discovery game can be played which personalizes your color experience with Emotional Brilliance. It’s not something you have to do but it’s a fun little extra that allows Lush to spontaneously select shades they think suit your mood.

Lush’s Color Wheel will select a shade based on your “mood” or “state of mind” and is available to play with at both stores and online.

What do you think of the Color Wheel? I’m more about selecting shades I like. Are you cool with letting Lush doing the picking for you?

I checked our an Emotional Brilliance Eyeliner recently and this morning I decided to test out the Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipstick I got my greedy hands on.

Here are some thoughts!

MAC Styleseeker Lipglass Review & Swatches

MAC Styleseeker Lipglass

MAC Styleseeker launched while I was away. Did anyone grab anything from this collection? It looks a little meh at a glance but there are actually some great pieces in this launch so don’t overlook it.

I’m in love with the lipglasses, so much so I’m considering a back up of a shade or two.

Let’s take a look at the MAC Styleseeker Lipglass shades I’m loving!
