Sneek Peek: MAC Rose Romance First Impressions, Review, and Product Photos

Oh MAC why…why do you have do this to me? Just when I thought I was cured you yank me back under your spell. MAC Rose Romance, a truly romantic and impressive collection from MAC.


Could be love, could definately be love! Jump ahead for the sneaky peek!

MAC Rose Romance releases officially April 23rd but check your local Pro shops as it might be peeking it’s pretty head out early for you to snag. So far I only have a few of the items and from what I tried I must say I’m impressed and I’m rubbing my hands in glee awaiting my chance to get my greedy little hands on the rest of the release.

Star of the show, for the Muse, without question is the new MAC Just Pinch Gel Blush. Oh my god the coolness is too much. Housed in a paint pot glass jar this gel gives your cheeks a pinch of blush that will last all day long! Likey. It’s a loud red so a little goes a long way and with a bit of the new beauty powder on top you’re sure to look pretty for Spring!


Of course second runner up for my money are the stunning new Rose Romance Beauty Powder. Available in two shades these are shaped like a rose and pack a nice bit of pigment so they can easily be used a blush. I have Summer Rose which is a soft violet with plenty of pink.


I only have two of the three lipglasses released but from what I seen so far loves it! They seem more shimmery and full of sparkle than any other lipglasses I have. Steal My Heart is bright fun pink shade and Virgin Kiss is a pale almost peach with plenty of sparkle.


I wasn’t big on the lippies as they are a bit too nude but I def want to try to make them work. The colors I have so far are A Rose Romance which is a nude pink and Way to Love which is a creamy nude pink that almost has a touch of peach. I’m wanting Odyssey as it seems a nice warm plum shade and keeping with the mauve like look and feel to the entire collection.


Love, love, love the new shades of See Thru Lip Colour although they have been downsized from their original size of .17oz and are now mini size. I’m partial to Tender Tryst which is a gorgeous plum! I also tried out Secret Crush which is a pure berry.

Old size vs. New Size


I’m looking forward to seeing the other shades of shadow in the collection but so far I’ve tried Of Summer which is a frosty mauve and Et Tu, Bouquet? which is a frost pale pink with touches of gold (nice to to cocktail with Circa Plum piggie!).


I believe Circa Plum Pigment is a repromote. It’s a frosty dark lavender which makes a great contrasting shade for paler pinks, very fitting for the collection. Mutiny is being re-released as well and if you haven’t already gotten this gem from the Naughty Nauticals Collection I highly rec nabbing it now as it’s thee most perfect shade of aqua I’ve run across.


So far I’m deeply impressed. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest shortly and I’m very eager to try out the MAC Fix + Rose Spray, it’s on top of my list to buy! Just when I think I’m off the MAC train I can’t help but be suckered back in. Really a great collection and well worth checking out for yourself.

Summer Collections 2009: Smashbox Untamed Summer Collection Rawrrrrrr!



You in the jungle baby! We got fun and games….oh and Smashbox makeup too!

Amp it up with a bit of the jungle this hot Summer with the new Smashbox Untamed Summer Collection. Not your traditional Summer release, Smashbox focuses on a smoky, dramatic look for Summer with olive greens, shimmering brown and beige and combines it with tanned brown skin for pop.

Untamed Lip Gloss for a sexy, fierce bite of color in two shades, Flesh and Raw!


Untamed Creamy Cheek Color adds a hint of healthy glow to cheeks and face!


Untamed Waterproof Shadow Liner Trio contains two contrasting shades of shadow for a dramatic smoked out look with a matching waterproof liner! Available in Savage and Exotic.


And finally Untamed Double-Ended Eye Brightener brightens eyes and adds highlight!

Rawrrrr! Smashbox Untamed is shaping up to be something special. I particularly love the glosses and the trio! Looks like a nice evening out makeup to me and should compliment a tan if you’re into that sort of thing (although we know the Muse is not!).

L’occitane Peach Blossom Collection

There’s something terribly attractive about peaches. Sweet, juicy, and fuzzy….ok, well maybe the fuzzy part isn’t all that appealing!


L’occitane obviously knows the value of a good peach which is why they have a brand new collection dedicated to that sweet, juicy, fuzzy fruit!

L’occitane Peach Blossom is a brand new exquisite fragrance that combines the scent of velvety white peaches with lemon, and bergamont with a base of
musk, iris, and tonka bean.

Considering how much I adore the lemony goodness of L’occitane Verbena I could probably quickly get on board with L’occitane Peach Blossom.

The collection is an array of limited edition pieces that include an EDT, lip gloss, body gel, shower gel and more! Prices range from $12-$46 USD. I was particularly delighted that the EDT was $46 USD as isn’t the 3.4 oz normally around $67-$76 USD or am I totally losing my mind here?

I’m feeling the love so I think I’ll head out to L’occitane too to nab some for a review.

Urban Decay Summer Collection 2009

Although small the Urban Decay Summer Collection has me drooling already! I can barely wait to get my hands on a few of the pieces being released. The Muse is always feeling the love for a little UD.


Slap me happy talking about Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Shimmer Body Lotion. Oh stop the press. How I love thee Midnight Cowboy! You grace my eyes and my lips and now my legs? my shoulders? my arms? Oh you’re perfect. Come to mama!


This brand new lightweight moisturizing body lotion has a subtle golden shimmer to make you sparkly and sexy! Ride ‘em cowboy! 100% Paraben-Free dontcha know! Come out and play with the Muse now won’t you!

Although I possibly have all the shadows in the new Urban Decay Get Baked Eye Kit it doesn’t stop me from wanting it anyway. This limited edition palette contains Twice Baked, Half Baked, Baked, and Flipside in a super-slim palette for glamming up your look on the go and get you a bit baked if you so please. If you’re feeling like sinning too while you’re getting baked Urban Decay was nice enough to include some of the new Urban Decay Potion Primer in Sin to get you started. And complete it all with a Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon…it simply gets better and better…booze, sin, and getting baked? Lord, we are so COVERED for Summer! Loves ya UD!


Possibly my favorite piece in the collection I like that they included all the baked shadows and a stunning ocean green to go along with it. It’s sort of a vampy, funky Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand palette for the hipper girl. Loves it!

Tis the Summer so we need some waterproof mascara now don’t we? Check out Urban Decay Big Fatty Waterproof addition to get you through those long days at the beach and in the pool. Won’t smear, won’t fade, won’t crack, stays where you put it until you want to take it off. Good bye raccoon eyes and hello Summer lashes!


Longer, stronger, curlier, and thicker. Get it all with Urban Decay Skyscraper Mascara! This new mascara nourishes lashes for longer, stronger, feather soft lashes with a tube formula to get your lashes from wow to WOW!


And finally one new shade in the Urban Decay Big Fatty Colored Mascara. Welcome Flipside to the collection! Perfect for pairing up with your new Urban Decay Get Baked Eye Kit! Yums!


All in all I’d say Urban Decay has a nice Summer Collection coming at us! The collection is live on Sephora and is also available now from www.urbandecay.com

If the Muse was you, she’d RACE over to UD and grab it as they are currently having their 30% Friends and Family Event! Oooo la la! Savings and new makeup!
