The Muse is getting excited to get to MAC today for a good day of hauling some of the MAC SugarSweet Collection. It’s all looking rather tempting doesn’t it?
To celebrate I decided to use some of the items I already have from the collection paired up with a few items already in my beauty vault! Jump ahead for a peek at my SugarSweet FOTD!
I really love MAC eye shadow in Aquavert so I was happy to see it brought back. I honestly have plenty to last me so I won’t be indulging in another but it’s nice to see it brought back to life with the SugarSweet Collection. This morning I used Aquavert on my eyes and added some Kryolan Metallic Mint Green Eye Dust on top. I used the MAC Shadestick in Lemon Chiffon as a base and a highlighter for my brow bone.
On my lips I have a light application of MAC Lipstick in Lollipop Loving with a clear gloss on top. Lollipop Loving was released prior with Heatherette so I already had it in my collection. Lollipop Loving is a great shade but I find I have to do a light application with it otherwise it makes my full face look even fuller eep! It’s a frosty pearl nude finish that just isn’t as flattering on me as I’d like but a nice light layer with clear gloss works well.
To complete the look I used the new MAC MSF in Refined as a blush and a highlighter. It’s pigmented enough to give my cheeks a burst of peach! Refined isn’t as glittery as many MSF’s I already have but the flash from my camera makes it look like shimmer overload so no worries it is quite a nice satin finish without chunky glitter.
I was going to do a Dear Cupcake look but I decided I was loving all the green so I went with that plus I thought that Refined would look better with a pop of green.
What’s your ideal SugarSweet look?

My life happens to be complete after meeting your MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder.
Thank you for blessing my mundane little world with it’s existence.
Ever your fan,
P.S. Can we has a pink Hello Kitty Collection?
The Muse met up with MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder and we fell in lurve. Read ahead for the details!
Not so long ago in a land right around the block from here the Muse ranted terribly about Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. Somehow, someway this powder became a staple in my daily makeup regime. Actually I think it was Bobbi Brown that absolutely convinced me I had to set my concealer with a loose powder of some kind thus I started using the Secret Brightening Powder to do so and just kind of fell off the bandwagon of ranting over it and turned into liking it. I really should do a fair review on it one day but that’s for another time.
The moral of the story is that I started liking the powder because I found an eye cream that was moisturizing my eyes very well so the powder wasn’t creasing or caking as it once was and was setting my concealer to last all day plus brightening up my eye area. I still use it daily but I’ve also taken to using the powder that came with my Mally Concealer Kit
as well. I’ve noticed that just about any transparent powder works great at settling concealer and blurring fine lines and creating very well rested eyes.
In steps MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder and lust quickly set in. I really, really like this and I highly recommend grabbing some because it’s freaking cheap and it multitasks.
Break it down:
Laura Mercier $22 USD 0.14oz
Make Up For Ever $30 USD 0.35oz
MAC $21 USD 0.32oz <-----Swing! Deal!
Let’s be honest, white finishing powder is white finishing powder no matter what the hell you call it, HD, Brightening, whatever it’s name it’s all the same stuff to me so honestly you get a whole lot of product with MAC’s version and it’ll only set you back $21 USD.
Benefits of finishing powder…..
So it’s going to set your foundation for you right? True that. But it’s also going to make it last considerably longer plus brighten your face, cool. But most important for me is it brightens, lightens, and wakes up my eye area while making my concealer last all day and than some more.
If you’re looking for that extra step to look flawless this will do the job well. I do favor it as a tool for my under eye area but it also makes my skin look extra beautiful and flawless with a quick buff on.
MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder will be available with the MAC Colour Ready Collection that releases April 2nd. I’m positive some MAC Pro shops already have it if you having a lemming at the moment.
MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder is fully Muse Approved for purchase. Get some, promise you’ll adore it!
Tried it already?

The Muse is feeling the sugar rush today and is bracing herself for the release of MAC SugarSweet tomorrow. I can barely wait as this collection is so me, the Muse happens to as sweet as sugar dontcha know!
Jump ahead for a teeny tiny preview of what’s ahead for MAC Sugarsweet tomorrow.
As I said I’m quite excited about this color story release so I’m all raved up and ready to go. I thought I’d give you a quickie sneaky peek at a few items I’ve already hauled…tomorrow I’ll be hauling more so expect a sequel post shortly.
Am I the only demented one that thinks with names like Dear Cupcake and Lemon Chiffon that this collection would be even better if the products were scented as such?
You seen mine now tell me yours, whatcha haulin’?

My Musings of the Day was brought on suddenly after watching a video from FloridaSweety on youTube.
Please tell me you subscribe to her videos? No? Check it below and you’ll totally understand my obsession.
Is she hysterical or what? I absolutely adore how she starts out on one topic and starts flying off the handle from topic to topic. Absolutely adored when she stops mid sentence because her cell phone starts to ring and she goes off on a tangent about how she won’t pick it up.
Lord…youTube is the best.
The moral of the story is FloridaSweety was saying how overrated MAC is and I was wondering what brand or brands do you think are terribly overrated?
Click below for my answer!
Ok, I probably have a few answers for this. Let’s see. I think NYX is big time overrated. They have alot of great stuff but the raves about how comparable they are to MAC…ummm overrated! One such example would be everyone comparing NYX shadows to MAC ummm again no I don’t think. Very nice shadows but not as good as MAC in my humblest.
It’s Monday so my brain is slow today and I’m only coming up with the one brand…so throw some my way!
Which brand or brands are completely overrated?
Tell the Muse!
Omg! The MAC Grand Duo Collection was created to tempt and tease a Muse! I’ve already blown through much of my Spring budget and I’m so, so tempted by this collection!
Jump ahead to find out if I’m hauling!
MAC Grand Duos combine two of my favorite items from MAC, an MSF and a Mineralized Blush. Well Hello gorgeous want to come home with me tonight?
I so want all of ‘em! I’m tempted beyond belief but I’m also feeling the love for many of the other upcoming MAC Collections that will pop up shortly, can you say Sugar Sweet?
So I’m in high debate whether to haul these or just wait?! Oh the pain of having to make choices such as this. Le sigh!
What about you?
