Philosophy Fall Color Collection 2009

Philosophy+Fall+Collection+2009+0043

I love that Philosophy is giving a little love to their color collection this Fall. As many of us are known to lust after both Philosophy Skin care and their bath and body line, I think a fair few of us forget that Philosophy has a color cosmetic line as well.

This Fall Philosophy has quite a few new skin care and bath and body products releasing but they are also showing the love for their color cosmetic collection with a few new pieces that have captured my eye.

Click below for the details!

Philosophy The Supernatural Moonlight Natural Illuminating Powder ($28) is a translucent illuminating powder that instantly highlights your face and leaves behind a luminous finish.

Philosophy+Fall+Collection+2009+003

Philosophy The Supernatural Instant Sunshine Natural Mineral Bronzer ($28) is a sheer, natural looking sunny color that gives a sun kissed glow.

Philosophy+Fall+Collection+2009+002

Philosophy The Supernatural Superglossy Lip Gloss ($16.50) is a sheer lioquid lip gloss that moisturizes lips without a tacky, sticky feel! It’s also formulated with an SPF 15.

Philosophy+Fall+Collection+2009+004

Shades Available:
  • Bare Your Soul
  • Do What Comes Naturally
  • Follow Your Dreams
  • Live In The Moment
  • Open Your Heart
  • Posey-Reflect A Little
  • Share The Love
  • Smell The Roses

Philosophy The Supernatural Coloring Book Palette ($37.50) is a color palette for eyes, cheeks, and lips for a natural make up look.

Philosophy+Fall+Collection+2009+001

All in all I’d say Philosophy did a good job in updating their makeup line. I’m interested in the palette, gloss, and possibly the highlighting powder….that bronzer sounds great too but with Fall quickly approaching I’m not up for a bronzy look.

The entire collection is available now at Nordstrom.

Philosophy Supernatural Super Beautiful Foundation

Philosophy takes on the liquid foundation world and introduces a brand new foundation coming in September.

Philosophy+Supernatural+Super+Beautiful+Foundation

Take the jump to find out more.

Philosophy Supernatural Super Beautiful Foundation is a lightweight liquid makeup formulated for sheer, natural coverage. It provides color and moisture plus sun protection in one easy to use liquid form. Although Philosophy doesn’t advertise it as such it sounds somewhat like a tinted moisturizer to this Muse.

I’m quite eager to try it out for myself. Philosophy excels itself in the skincare and bath and body world but has been known to release a nice item or two in the cosmetic world as well.

Available in 5 shades for $25 each starting in September.

WANT IT: Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe

Philosophy+The+Sweet+Shoppe+3

By now I imagine I sound like a broken record. But..ahem…allow me to repeat myself for the umpteenth time and mention that Philosophy continues to impress me with it’s 3-in-1 Shower Gel range.

I’ve always been a mad fan for Philosophy Shower Gels but even as a fan I confess disappointment over a few that didn’t quite smell like their namesakes. Ok, I admit some were down right wrong on many levels.

But over the course of a year and a half or so Philosophy has beaten out shower gel after shower gel that impresses and tops each past release. The scents are creative, true to their namesakes, and delicious. Actually if I think about it they are exactly what I originally hoped and wanted from Philosophy but somehow was disappointed when it didn’t turn out as such.

Why you must ask am I going on about this now?

Well, Philosophy has three brand new scents available at Sephora and I suspect more will follow soon for Fall.

Click it and learn what they are and why I’m excited!

Indeed I’m not averse to a quick stop at The Sweet Shoppe, particularly Philosophy’s Sweet Shoppe.

Now available and brand new are the Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe Set that includes Watermelon, Little Fishy, and Bubblegum Scented 3-in-1 Shower Gel ($30). Although I find myself unexcited about the actual set (I prefer the large size shower gel bottles) I am excited about the scents. Little Fishy? I adore the scent of Swedish Fish candy! Bubblegum? Another fond favorite! And Watermelon too? Be still my beating heart.

Philosophy+The+Sweet+Shoppe+2

I hope that Philosophy will extend these scents to the bigger bottles if not I shall indulge in the set but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a larger size.

Also available is the Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe Lip Shine Duo ($20) which includes Watermelon and Bubble Gum flavored glosses! Sweet! What happened to Little Fishy though? Sob!

Whatever your opinion of Philosophy you can’t deny the cuteness behind these sets!

Want!

Philosophy Just Release Me Eye Make Remover

Tickle me delighted that Philosophy has taken on the eye make up remover world. Philosophy Just Release Me is a brand new eye make up remover coming soon to Sephora or a Philosophy counter near you!

Philosophy+Just+Release+Me

Jump ahead for some deets on this brand new product plus how to snag yourself a free sample!

Philosophy Just Release Me is Philosophy new dual-phase eye makeup remover. Looking like Lancome Bi-Facil here a bit aren’t we?

I couldn’t be more excited about this but I am slightly put off about the price. The bottle is 6oz in size which is very generous and $18. Honestly, I’m terribly cheap when it comes to eye makeup removers so the idea of spending more than $10 on one doesn’t appeal no matter how good it is.

I absolutely adore Lancome Bi-Facil but for the very reason I mentioned above I don’t indulge sadly. The good news is Philosophy is consderably cheaper and a larger size compared to Lancome but still…I do find myself second guessing the idea of shelling out $18!

No matter…I’m still quite excited and look forward to trying it. You can actually try a 1oz size early from Sephora by entering promo code RELEASEME. The Muse will do just that and she’ll cry later on when it’s all gone and she’s not willing to purchase that second bottle.

As for me? I remain hopeful QVC will come at me with some super size version of this on easy pay so I don’t feel like I’m overindulging!

What do you think?

Willing to dish out $18 bucks?

Tell the Muse!
