These cute stains are available in two color options and can be used on cheeks or lips. The formula is a gel so it’s not a messy application, swipe across cheeks, blend, and you’re left with a very natural, fresh look! The novelty of these would be the scent! The stain carries the sweet, slightly tart scent of apples! Too cutes! Color options available are Au Natural which is a rosy bronze shade and Rouge which is a bright berry red color. Color is buildable so you can have a sheer finish if you desire or build it up for a popping, just out of the cold look.

Pop Beauty Lip Lust Review

Have you ever successfully completed a tube of lipstick? Am I the only one in the world that has the hardest time in the world using one up?

If you have this problem too you might be interested in trying out Pop Beauty’s new Lip Lust Lipstick! These tiny tubes house a hydrating, moisturizing lipstick that’s sheer and natural with a beautiful glossy finish.

Pop+Lip+Lust+Lipstick+Dew+Toffee+45

I tested out Dewy Toffee which is a nude peach. The color gave me a beautiful, natural look that went beautifully with my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Shimpange. I’m particularly smitten with the glossy finish on these and I love how they simply glide onto my lips not to mention give my lips much needed moisture on hot days.

The packaging is simply sweet! Since this isn’t a full size lipstick you can easily slip it into your makeup bag for touch ups without taking a ton of room. The size makes it equally charming for the simple fact you can actually get through the entire tube where as with full size lipsticks I’m normally ditching them because I can’t get through them within a year or two and by that time they are long since old, dry, gross, and germ ridden! If you’re familiar with Lavshuca’s Jewel Lips Mini the Pout Beauty Lip Lust is comparable in size to this.

All in all it’s a rather great Summer lip stick as it offers a beautiful glossy finish plus plenty of moisturizing benefits to keep your lips shiny and hydrated in the hot sun!

The Muse digs it!

Check it out at Sephora!

Tried it?

Can you get through an entire tube of lipstick?

Pop Smokey Rose Palette Review

I know, I know. You’re probably tired of my babblings about Pop lately but I can’t help myself they have come out with some truly awesome items lately.

What started out as a few palettes for the eyes has turned into an entire line up of fantastic palette after palette after palette releases that are such a steal!

The newest palette entitled Smokey Rose combines not only a ton of eyeshadows but also gloss and blush this time around! Sweet!

The Muse likey a palette with tons of goodies that covers my entire face! The convenience of a do it all palette thrills me to absolute pieces!

So, What’s the scoop? What do I get?

Let me tell you……..

You get 12 Eyeshadows, 4 Cheek Colors, 2 Lip Colors, and One Dual Ended Brush for $42 USD! That, my dear girls, is a steal in my humblest.

You’d pay close to $35 USD anyway for six shadows or so in a palette! This gives you eyeshadows plus cheek colors plus lip colors plus a brush..what more could you possibly want?!

If you’re on a bit of a budget this is a great palette as it offers so much variety for a small cost. If you’re a no nonsense type of girl that doesn’t like stashing large quantities of cosmetics this would be for you as it has a healthy selection of goodies stowed away in a cute checkbook style wallet!

The shades in the wallet range from darker to medium to lighter. Lighter can be used as a highbrow highlighter or as an all over color wash for prepping the eye area while the darker shades can be used to smoke your eye out or to use as a liner and finally the medium shades can be used on the lid.

You can get very creative with the palette and create dozens of looks!

The blushes range from bronzey to pink and lighter to darker. You can use the darker shades to contour the face and the brighter colors on your cheek bones! The lip colors included are a deep shade of cranberry stain and a lighter glossier pink. The stain gives the appearance of just bitten lips while the glossier nude pink looks gorgeous on top for a bit of shine!

Tips and Trixs for Application:

  • Use any of the 4 darker shades as eyeliners to line and define the shape of your eye!
  • Apply a medium tuned color onto lid and blend into crease to create a gorgeous look!
  • Apply a nude cheek color all over the cheekbone and a pink color on the apples of the cheek only!
  • Stain lips with the cranberry stain and dot pastel pink in the middle of the top and bottom lip for a plumper, fuller lip look!

The Muse is loving Pop lately and thinks the newest Smokey Rose Palette is definately gorgeous! The packaging is a gorgeous snap close, faux croc purple wallet with a loop for holding the brush inside. Easy storage! Easy for toting around in your purse!

Pop’s Smokey Rose Palette is most definately Muse Approved for purchase! It’s pigmented, it has a large selection of gorgeous goodies, it’s compact, it comes with it’s own brush….yup, it’s definately Muse Approved!

Pop’s Day to Play Palette Review

in Pop

Another Pop Review for you guys icon wink

I’ve been playing with the Day to Play Palette for about two weeks now and I must say it’s fantastic. Remember I mentioned this during the holidays? Click!

This particular kit is a gorgeous wallet style with a cute button clasp. The package definately sells it for me as it’s really cute for toting around. It almost looks like a checkbook style wallet. This comes with a brush as well and a little brush loop inside the wallet for attaching it.

This particular palette is quite a steal for the price at $42 USD which is about $1.75 USD per a strip of color as you get 24 shades of fabulous shadows.

If you don’t have a vast collection of eyeshadow and are looking to start one up so you’ll have a variety of looks you can create this little palette is definately alot of bang for your buck. With 24 shades you can create a multitude of looks ranging from natural and elegant to loud and outrageous!

Picture+235

I’ve been using the top part for the past few days as it contained the most Muse Approved colors that ranged from bold greens and blues to beautiful pinks and reds.

The top half the palette contains all the vibrant popping shades where as the bottom contains more natural shimmering shades of browns, pinks, and pastels.

This is also particularly great for beginners or those of you afraid of a little color. I love how Pop always includes a handy little card of color in with the packaging to show you which colors work well together and what sort of looks you can create using the palette.

The colors are of good pigmentation and blend very easily but lack too much shimmer which is sometimes a deal breaker for the Muse but since the colors are so lovely I can’t complain over much! They have a very fine sheen of shimmer but not an overload which can be good since fall out isn’t a major problem plus it makes them easier to work with!

I know a few people who had expressed interest in buying this when I did my original post and I’m here to say it’s definately worth your time. Pop does a range of these palettes but this is by far the nicest I’ve seen. Most of the older palettes they did contained 12 shades of shadow but they are now doing bigger and better palettes which also include blushes. I’m really loving these at the moment as simplicity is becoming a daily part of my regime.

The brush included with this is plenty to create the look you desire. One end is a fluffy eyeshadow brush and the other is a flat liner style brush.

All in all Pop gets my vote for cool palettes as of late. Simplicity with a range of gorgeous colors!

Cheers to that!

Pop Eye Cake Review

in Pop

I’m on a freaky Pop trip lately! I can’t seem to get enough of it!

Today I wanted to review the Pop Eye Cake I got because it’s so awesome and I wants more colors! Now!

I was lucky enough to test out the Pop Eye Cake in Bright Pink this week and I created so many looks with it tis ridiculous. It only contains 5 colors but you can do so much with the colors that you end up creating 20 different looks or more with one little compact! Sweet!

First of all the packaging is uber cute. It reminds me of Cargo’s packaging as it comes in a cute little tin which is great for knocking around your purse as it won’t spill, break, or open! Each Eye Cake is $19 USD which evens out to less then $4 USD per a color in the tin. These come in 13 or so color combinations so you have plenty of variety when selecting what you want. Bright pinks, blues, golds, you name it and Pop has you covered.

The pink is perfect for me because I truly think pink is my most flattering shade. All the colors are somewhat matte aside from one shimmering shade which you can use as an undercoat or overcoat for a bit of sparkle and shimmer! The pinks range from light, dark, and deep. There happened to be a bluish gray color in with my pinks which worked well as a bottom eye liner for one of the looks I created using this but I’m still in high debate how else to incorporate it in with so much pink!

Picture+106

Looks you can create range from bold to natural it’s all up to how many colors you use, how heavily you pack on color, and what you’re looking to create. Colors are good quality and pigmented and they blend a nice little treat!

Honestly, I’m loving this little guy and want a few more of the colors available! As I get older I find that I lean more towards buying palettes like this to avoid the drama of packing a ton of makeup when I travel! This sincerely simplifies life because the colors just all work well together. Ease of use is sincerely a plus when you’re running around in the morning!

I’d say the Pop Eye Cake is Muse Approved for purchase!
