Summer+2008

Step back in time with the Muse and re-visit with some of what was happening in Summer 2008.

Bobbi Brown taught this Muse a thing or two about the benefits of combining pink with beautiful bronzes to create a killer Summer look! Check out the Muse’s review of the Bobbi Brown Bronzed Pink Collection from 2008.

Much excitement was afoot when the Muse discovered the new Stila Kitten goodies but sadly they did so disappointed. Gather round and listen to a tale of Stila Kitten Silk Shimmer Gloss and Stila Kitten Silk Eye Shadow Wash.

Cooling off with Etude House Aqua Sherbet Skincare was easy especially since it smelled so pretty and looked equally gorgeous.

MAC A Rose Romance: MAC Fix+Rose WANTS IT!

MAC Fix+ Rose? So wants it!


MAC+A+Rose+Romance

As the release of MAC A Rose Romance nears the Muse can’t help but jump around in excitement over the MAC Fix + Rose! I have a thing for rose scented products so I’m all about a calming spritz filled with vitamins and minerals carrying the scent of 100% natural rose water.

My inner Victorian lady so needs a bottle or two or three….there’s something terribly ladylike about spritzing one self with rose scented fix!

What about you?

Is MAC Fix+ Rose calling your name?

Reader’s Request: MAC Just A Pinch Gel Blush Review

Ok, so you don’t like Benetint because it’s simply too red. And you’re not too keen on Posietint because it’s too pink….but you’re still wanting a nice, natural cheek stain.

No problem.

You really need MAC Just a Pinch Gel Blush!

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+3

Introduced as a limited edition product with MAC Rose Romance Collection this sweet little blush gives cheeks just the right amount of flush without being too red, too pink, or too bold!

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+5

The gel comes in the standard paint pot jar which contains a healthy amount of product but since I’m loving it so much I feel like I need a back up before it’s gone EEP! I suppose it’s not really a stain per say but more of a gel blush. The formula is a cool, moist gel with a subtle touch of color that can be built up in intensity. Going natural or loud is completely optional just layer the product for a more bolder look or use a tiny touch for a more natural look.

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+4

Since it doesn’t have the standard formula of a liquid stain it’s easier to blend on to cheeks. You won’t be left with little dots of red on your cheeks since it absorbs and blends easily for a smooth finish. The impact is a very natural, simple flush to cheeks, nothing dramatic, very subtle and fresh. Ideal for Spring I’d say. You might recall a few years back when MAC had gel blushes in a tube. This is kinda the same concept but more of a solid base.

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+2

MAC+Just+A+Pinch+Gel+Blush+1


Personally I love the look it gives to my face. If you’re a big lover of stains you’ll probably fall for MAC Just A Pinch Gel Blush instantly! Although it’s a rather bold shade of red in the pot, I thought it looked very natural and sweet on my cheeks.

Definately Muse Approving this one for purchase! Loves it so much I think I’ll snag a back up!
