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!
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!

If you missed it, I happened to review Pop’s Rose Belle Blush palette last week! Click here to catch up on that review!
I got something cool to show you!
Behold Pop Rose Belle Blush Palette (I’m getting pretty good with these close up shots aren’t I? I’m rockin’ the new Canon!):
I have tons of eye palettes. Like seriously alot, more then two. But I don’t have any blush palettes and in all honesty when I think about it how many companies even make blush palettes!?
Which leads me into my review on Pop’s Rose Belle Blush Palette! This thing has freaking eight shades to choose from! How excited am I? I bet you’re excited too…don’t lie…I know you are!
Pop makes some uber cute cosmetics a few of which grace my collection and I’m happy to have gotten a chance to try out this new blush kit from them! The palette comes in three shade selections, each of which holds 8 shades of blusher, highlighters, or bronzers. The one I got is Rose Belle but they also have two others which are Bronze Belle and Glow Belle. Bronze Belle comes with a selection of 8 Bronzer while Glow Belle comes with a variety of highlighting shades. In my humblest I like the idea of having eight shades of blush in one palette so I think Rose Belle is definately the nicest in the selection of kits offered.
Each one is $28 USD which breaks down to about $3.50 per a blush, another words it’s a total steal. The colors are silky, smooth, pigmented, and easy to blend. Use one or use several to create different shades to suit your skin tone or use one to highlight and one to contour. You can seriously get hundreds of looks from one palette as it’s so versatile!
The shades included with Rose Belle are Pale Pink, Baby Pink, Mauve, Copper-Rose, Fresh Rose, Hot Pink, Nude-Rose Glow, and Bronze-Rose.
The colors range from light shades to darker bronzer shades. All the colors are pretty much flattering for any skin tone in my opinion and if for some odd reason you can’t find a suitable color among the eight you can get all Doctor Frankenstein and start combing colors like a mad scientist to concoct a shade that’s uniquely you! Isn’t that fun now?
The palette is pretty small and perfect for travel. Easier then toting around a few MAC blushes in my opinion! Slip this into your traincase and you have eight colors at your fingertips!
Overall, definately a sweet palette for the price and worth taking a look at!
This one gets a thumbs up and Muse Approved seal of approval for purchase!

Welcome to my combined review of the Vincent Longo C_Scope Collection that I babbled about yesterday PLUS the Pop Lid Neon Palette as well! Isn’t it fun to get a double dose of two brands in one post?
I was babbling quite a bit yesterday about Vincent Longo’s C_Scope Collection so if you missed it you can click here for a recap! I also babbled about (and swatched) Pop’s new palette Lid Neon if you missed it click here and here to get in the know!
Let me start by saying I’m quite in lust and love with the Vincent Longo C_Scope Collection! After swatching myself happy at Sephora with every single shade in the collection I decided, after much debate and deep thought, that I’d go with the mascara and liner in blue. Truly it was a difficult choice and I wanted to walk out of Sephora with at least three other colors but somehow, some way I showed a willpower I didn’t even know I possessed. Although I imagine the other colors will make a starring appearance in my collection soonish!
The blue I choose is a the truest blue I’ve ever owned. I don’t own any colors like it and I’d never have thought to pick such a color for myself but after seeing the promo images I was pretty much sold! It’s a solid, true, primary blue and might I add it goes wonderfully with the blue in the new Pop Lid Neon Palette I purchased.
I decided this morning I’d pair up the Pop Lid Neon Palette with my Vincent Longo mascara and liner. What I created is a bit scary and needs a bit of tweaking to look good but I think with a lighter hand and a bit more time I can do a sincerely awesome look!
I should mention that I hate liquid liners with a passion. HATE! They are so difficult to apply! Stick me with a pencil or a potted liner and I’m good to go, give me liquid and it’s like sending me to a hanging! I have no skill when it comes to lining with liquid (I have had success with Cenora Liquid Liner though! Yay me!)! I just suck at it, pure and simple. The good news is that the liners from the collection are so deeply pigmented. It’s like applying ink to your lashline and it’s impossible to screw it up. It just slides right on perfectly and personally you don’t need much talent for application. I dunno why but since the blue is so loud and outrageous it just makes it easier to apply for me. If I’m using black in a liquid liner I tend to notice if I screw up or if my line is messy and not so straight where as with the bright, bold blue I didn’t notice any such thing. I think the fact that the color is so very vibrant that you’re not noticing any minor imperfections. Any goof ups I did have, I corrected easily by gently following the line I made with a q-tip, reapplying, and again lightly touching up with a q-tip! Presto! Bob’s your uncle! Perfect line!
As I mentioned earlier I also picked up the blue mascara. This I didn’t like as much as the liner simply because I felt like it was clumping my lashes up during application. Pigmentation, like the liner, is excellent! It literally turns your lashes bright blue! So outrageous! But I didn’t enjoy the way it applied. The applicator is a comb applicator so no brush here which is good because you’ll get excellent coverage this way but I’m not loving the clumpy feel and look of my lashes after application.
More raving ahead after that minor rant…….
The collection also introduced a new product entitled Lip Vinyl. Four shades are currently available and I’m hopeful they’ll slowly add more. I got the color Fellini Red and I absolutely adore it. Wow. Super duper pigmentation. I can’t speak for the other colors but this is seriously some killer lip product here! A quick swipe gave my lips a very full on, drop dead red pout! I don’t normally like reds but I have to say I loved how awesome this looked on! It might be even too much if possible! I felt like Marilyn Monroe for a second there! The formula is strange because it does apply somewhat wetly but it’s dry on your lips and very matte which I don’t like. I’m not one for a matte lip color so a little gloss on top makes my lips very happy, VERY red, and very shiny! Gorgeous!
This morning I decided to pair my Pop Lid Neon with the Vincent Longo liner and mascara. Many of you had asked how pigmented the Pop Lid Neon palette was and I couldn’t truly answer without first trying it on my eyes. I’m here to tell you it’s worth your bucks! It’s very pigmented and the one color I used (blue) went on beautifully! All the colors are matte, again I’m not a matte lover, but I am happy to have this little guy in my beauty arsenal because the shades are excellent and you can get hundreds of looks out of one little kit! The shadow is silky and applies with ease and it’s very long wearing!
As I was saying I paired up my Vincent Longo blue liner and mascara plus the blue shade from the Lid Neon palette today and although the look was a bit overkill I think in the future I can definately work it a bit better! I went with very natural lips and cheeks because the blue was already loud enough in itself!
On a side note the color lasted all day on both the shadow, liner, and mascara. No smudging, no flaking. On the upside of this I’m happy to report that the liner is pretty easy to remove. If you’re a MAC lover I’m sure, like me, you avoid Liquidlast Liner like the plague! Seriously does anyone buy it? You need gasoline dipped cotton balls to remove it from your eyes! It doesn’t budge! It terrifies me! It’s like applying tattoo ink to my lashline! The good news is you get the same incredible lasting power and pigmentation with Vincent Longo’s liner but the ease of removal that MAC Liquidlast liner fails at!
So here’s what I created, don’t laugh, it looks kinda crummy and needs alot of work! My favorite part is the liner which is why I’m showing you this! It’s so very beautiful and has that wonderful “wow” and “pop”! I’m eager to try the liner on it’s own and maybe smudge it up some and see what kind of effect I can get! By the way don’t mind the fact that I have a huge stain of blue in the inner corner of my eye, it was removed after taking the pictures! I noticed it and was like UGH!
UPDATE: Sorry guys but I’m removing the FOTD pics. Totally feeling bummed after getting some crummy comments but the good news is the review is still here!
Pop’s new palette got a little love from me earlier today when I posted about it! Click here to see my original post.
Soon after my post the need for this little palette grew and I found myself skipping my way (not literally but isn’t it damn hysterical to picture the Muse skipping?) to Sephora a little while ago to pick it up!
It’s been a very long, busy week at work with many late nights so I deserved a little pick me up treat! The palette is all I wanted it to be and I’m hopeful I can get some decent looks out of it!
It’s pretty tiny for $22 USD and it’s not super duper pigmented so you’ll have to build up color a bit but I think it’s fair enough to say that it’s a pretty sweet little array of ultra cool shadows! I love that I can have six luscious neon shades in one place! These totally work together for some vibrant, loud looks! The inside cover suggests a few ideas for using the palette which is a nice little touch!
Seriously for $22 bucks it’s well worth it in my opinion! If you want to re-live the 80’s or you’re just looking for something fresh and fun for the Summer this be the palette for you!
The Muse thinks she may approve it but she has to give it a test run tomorrow! Stay tuned for an FOTD!
Some swatches as requested by a reader:
Sorry but my cam kinda takes crummy swatch photos! These are actually way more vibrant then they look on the back of my arm!
Tell the Muse!
In keeping with the current them of outrageous colors Pop has introduced a beautiful palette entitled Lid Neon!
Doesn’t this totally bring you back to the 80’s!?
My god I love it!
It’s sincerely loud and tacky and awesome! The Muse loves tacky!
$22 USD for six sickeningly neon shades of yum!
The Muse has plopped it on her Wish List!
