Dearest DuWop,

You obviously listen to the Muse when she’s yammering on and on about your incredible crush palette from last year because you introduced a new one with your Summer Collection! Gasp! You really love the Muse don’t you? Showering her with gifts such as this. Btw you were a little late coming out with your Summer this year but we forgives you because of the new shade of the crush palette plus the other bits you have coming out look mighty fine.

Thanks for hearing my prayer! Love ya lots!

Your faithful servant,
the Muse

P.S. Let’s do lunch soon!

Yes, you read that correctly. The DuWop Summer Collection 2009 is up and available on the DuWop site (and on Sephora if you so please) and yes you also read correctly that a brand new shade of the DuWop Crush Palette is out! My god the excitement is too much, I can’t stand it. If you haven’t tried the crush palette you are so missing out of one of life’s greatest joys!

Jump ahead for the rest of the release deets!

Although small the DuWop Summer Collection 2009 looks mighty fine peeps. Check it below!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+5

Ok, so of course I want to tell you about the new DuWop Crush Palette ($24 USD). Last year I fell in love with this palette and I hoped and prayed for another color selection, bless be my prayers were heard and in comes a new shade entitled 18 Karat. So I have to rant a little bit because I’m the Muse and that’s what I do. 18 Karat looks a little, tiny bit uneventful from the photos. I’m a tad worried as it looks sorta matte, not as shimmery as the prior palette, and even appears almost a dupe of the other palette however I will say in it’s defense that the stock photo may not be doing justice. I’m really worked into a frenzy over this palette and I’m looking forward to getting my order so I can see if it’s a yay or a nay. If you missed my raving do check out my review of the original DuWop Crush Palette by checking it out here.

Love, love, loving the new DuWop Iced Teas ($19 USD)! These are a cooling transuclent lip treatment with a exotic fruit flavor which also contain sunscreen. They look incredibly yummie! I’m unsure if they taste different, like their names imply, or it’s the same taste. Four shades are available which are White Peach, Black Currant, Strawberry Kiwi, and Passionfruit!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+2

As always I’m on the bandwagon for expressing my intense dislike for bronzers but count me on board with the DuWop SunDrops ($28 USD). DuWop Sun Drops is a universally flattering bronzing serum that gives a healthy radiant glow. The fact that it’s in a pump packaging makes it very appealing as it means the chances of overdoing it are slim!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+3

Speaking of bronzing also available is the new DuWop Revolution Deep ($28 USD). This I’ll avoid like the plague but anyone who is interested in a deep tan this gives a smooth, bronzed effect to skin!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+4

And finally DuWop Doubleglow7 Deep ($25 USD) is the brand new Doubleglow from DuWop. This I can get on board with as it looks quite glowy and shimmering! Perfect for highlighting cheeks with a splash of the sun! Likey!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+1

Although it’s a tiny collection it really covers just about anything you could possibly want in a Summer collection. I’m quite excited about trying it all. You can get 10% Off and Free Shipping with your $50 order by entering the code BRONZE at check out! So go shop! Please for the love of god get the Crush Palettes! You’ll love ‘em!

DuWop Amber Eyes Trio

The Muse was so enthralled with DuWop Crush Metallic Eyeshadow Trio last year. It was truly a great little trio of shadows. She was so in lust with it she was busy wishin’ and hopin’ that DuWop might extend the line and do a few more shades, the Muse can so get on board with that.

Although they didn’t quite get it right, they are getting the idea with the brand new, limited edition DuWop Amber Eyes Trio!

Behold:

duwop

It’s like a little version of DuWop’s popular Amber Eyes Palette! Look! Just like mom used to make only smaller (ha remember that commercial?)!

The compact features an amber shadow for the lid and a contrasting deeper amber for the crease with a sable eyeliner. It also includes a double-ended brush but count me in for calling that a stupid idea, where the hell am I supposed to store the brush? Hello, lost and found? Have you found my DuWop double ended brush I lost last week because I can’t fit it in the palette and have to carry it around separately duh!

Aside from my rant about the brush I like the idea of this palette but not so much the colors as it’s a bit of the same I already have with the Crush palette….but let’s wait…and see…maybe we’ll get more colors of this fine palette soon from DuWop……

You’re almost there now DuWop…needs a little tweaking and you’ll have it just right me thinks!

DuWop Cheek Venom & Doubleglow7 Luminous Balm Duo

duwop

I’m not a particularly big fan of DuWop Cheek Venom but when I seen this new Cheek Venom duo I was sorta intrigued.

Exclusive to QVC at the moment the DuWop Cheek Venom & Doubleglow7 Luminous Balm Duo is $24 USD and brings two of DuWop’s products togehter in one compact. You’ll get a highlighter for cheeks and face with DuWop Doubleglow and a Cheek Venom cream blush to give cheeks a pop of color!

It’s rather interesting to see both products packaged together. As I mentioned I’m not a huge fan of Cheek Venom but I’ve always been tempted to try Doubleglow and hey it’s packaged together so kinda a nice little treat!

Want it? Snag it at QVC by typing in item number A90925

Now if they’d only release something like the DuWop Crush Trio! That was good stuff! Please DuWop let’s have another of those this year?

DuWop Circle Block Review and Swatches

I dunno what it is but concealers really turn me on lately. I’m on board the concealer express train and haven’t quite reached my destination as of yet which is why when I seen the new DuWop Circle Block Concealer I was quite excited to have a try.

It has it all! A dynamic duo to conceal my dark circles and a water-resistant treatment shield to keep my circles away all day.

Right…when things sounds too good to be true that normally means they are.

DuWop Circle Block is a dual system which works at concealing dark circles and waterproofing the concealer formula so you have lasting, flawless coverage throughout the day.

DuWop+Circle+Block+Concealer+12

Well, slap me and call me silly but I’ve no idea why they though it was a good idea to package a concealer with a strange “water-resistant treatment shield” that’s orange in color and actually makes your eyes look tired and more exhausted than when you originally started out.

Two steps go into applying the concealer. 1st you’ll be applying the orange “shield” below your under eyes and proceeding to follow up with the concealer. The orange shield is a moisturizing orange, yes orange treatment which is rather strange to apply considering it doesn’t technically blend out to a suitable shade it just stays…well it stays orange. After the orange treatment is on you’ll follow up with the concealer. The concealer has a nice whipped texture which could be comparable to Clarins Instant Smooth Foundation however not as much silicon in the formula. I tried the lightest shade and it’s honestly still too beige. Add to the fact that the shade is a terrible shade of beige plus applying on top of the orange and you come out with a nice hot mess of interesting shades under your eyes.

I generally love that they put an interesting effort into the product with a “water-resistant” treatment. That seriously sounded like it’ll be a life saver in the concealer department however it’s an epic fail for me. The orange is terribly strange! I guess they consider the treatment not only a water proof mechanism but also a means of concealing darker circles by off setting them with a salmon shade however for me it just drowns my eyes out terribly and gives me a full on made up look. The concealer itself on top of the treatment creases and cakes terribly partly due to it’s whipped consistency I’d say. The concealer blends well enough and has a nice texture but it doesn’t absorb too well and patting into place is out of the question as you’ll really end up with a cakey mess. Smoothing on is the way to go but after an hour or so you’ll notice it creeping into fine lines.

Overall, I just thought the entire two part system was rubbish. It concealed circles only ok but I have way better concealers that do the job without as much fanfare. I felt like it aged my eyes as well and made me look tired due to the mix of orange and beige shades. Props to an interesting idea but it just fails to work well enough for me to rave. The formula is paraben free but that doesn’t excuse the terrible finished results of the product.

In the end DuWop Circle Block ended up taking the short train home to Sephora as I returned it. $28 USD is just too much to spend on a product that did absolutely nothing for concealing my under eye woes.

Rethinking this I love the idea and maybe if they did a clear waterproof treatment, with a more flattering shade of concealer (less beige) please and maybe a finishing powder to complete the entire concealing system. Now that would really work for me.

In the end DuWop Circle Block is a no likey for this Muse!

Tried it?

duwop+spring+2009

Now here’s something to get excited about! The DuWop Spring Collection 2009 is shaping up to be something that I’m highly interested in indulging in! New foundation plus a new concealer all have my interest captured!

Want!

Read on for further deets on the DuWop Spring Collection 2009.

Ok, stop everything you’re doing and feast your eyes on the new DuWop Circle Block which is being released as part of the DuWop Spring Collection 2009.

Well hello possibly ridding me of my dark circle woes…!

DuWop Circle Block is a two-part system for prepping and concealing dark circles while offering all day waterproof coverage…whoa…likey. This promises “phenomenal staying powder” combined with a richly pigmented concealer plus it’s paraben free…it’s getting better and better isn’t it? It appears that you’ll be prepping with the gel like primer and applying concealer on top. I wants it as soon as possible. It’ $28 USD and will available shortly from Sephora.

DuWop+Spring+Collection+20092

Also releasing is a brand new foundation entitled DuWop Foundation of Youth which is a light weight anti-aging foundation with brush applicator. $38 USD and also available from Sephora shortly. This one doesn’t tickle me but I admit that the idea of an anti-aging foundation does sound interest although it looks tiny for the price tag! Will have to see it in person before deciding.

DuWop+Spring+Collection+20094

DuWop Mattillume is a baked translucent powder for battling oily skin and creating a fresh, flawless look during those warm Spring days!


And finally DuWop Tinted Prime Venom plumps lips while offering gorgeous color and kissable lips all in a moisturizing lip balm formula!

All in all the line up looks fantastic but I’m particularly interested in the DuWop Circle Block and will bring you a review of it as soon as I can get my greedy hands on it!

How about you?

Loving this collection?

Skip?
