Lorac Silver Screen Full Face Collection Palette Review and Swatches

The Muse is ever so guilty of sometimes passing by great palettes and never realizing their potential. That would be the case with the new Lorac Silver Screen Full Face Collection Palette.

Oh my gosh, how did I miss this one? It’s available exclusively at Ulta and it’s $30 bucks and probably some of the best money you’ll spend on such a nice palette this season. Really liking the elegant looks you can create with.

Stila One Step Makeup Foundation Review and Swatches

Stila has a total masterpiece of a foundation on their hands with the new Stila One Step Makeup Foundation. I love this stuff! It’s been a while since I’ve used a US brand foundation and I did expect to be disappointed, US brands just don’t cut it for me anymore, but I got ever so delighted with this stuff. Incredible.

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II Review and Swatches

There isn’t ever any GOOD excuse to refrain from reviewing incredible makeup but let me explain my side of the Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II tale.  I know SO many of you have e-mailed begging and pleading for me to review but I kinda wanted to do looks with the palette before reviewing…sigh….sadly my schedule is always jammed tightly packed and I didn’t have that chance to do the looks which is why I’ve been held up with my review.

Don’t hate me k?

Since Urban Decay Friends and Family is on at the moment now is good as any a time to spread the cheer and joy that surrounds Book of Shadows II.

Note before making the jump please know the post is photo intensive. I’d really appreciate it if you not download images from the post as it will bring down my site. I took lots of photos because I know it’s fun to see each and every aspect of a makeup item but it’s also at the cost of possibly causing a problem with my server so please refrain from downloading images, thanks!

Jemma Kid Mannequin Skin Brightener and Concealer Duo Mannequin Skin Brightener and Concealer Duo Review

Todays Special

I dunno why…but when I heard about the new Jemma Kidd Mannequin Skin Brightener and Concealer Duo the first thing that popped into my head was that old kid’s show, Today’s Special. Remember that? Totally dating myself here right? Must be the “mannequin” part because I was thinking of that guy Jeff who was a mannequin and came to life at night when the store closed, it was kinda the premise of what Kim Cattrall would later bring to the big screen.

Anyway….if you don’t remember that don’t mind my babblings but I’d be ever so delighted if you all admit you did so I’m not left feeling like the old fart around here.

What was it I was talking about again?

Ahhh yes Jemma Kid Mannequin Skin Brightener and Concealer Duo.
