The Muse has a deep, affectionate relationship with MAC Technakohl.
It’s possibly one of my favorite pencils from MAC and works like such a dream. But, ado, everything is not always perfect in Technakohl land.
Is it me or does it irritate the population terribly that Technakohl wears down so quickly? I actually find the product useless once it’s worn down to a stubby little smidgelet of a pencil. The sharp even edge that I loved so much is worn down within three or four uses and basically after that I only get proper use out of my Technakohl by using it on my waterline as it no longer has that sharp, precise tip that I so dearly loved lining my upper lash line with!
All in agreement say I!
But of COURSE the Muse was fairly excited to see the Sephora Brand Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner for $12 USD…ooooo cheaper than Technakohl…but guess what else?
Not only is the design pretty much the same but the dreamy, creamy formula looks the same too but guess what else!?
A built-in sharpener to keep your pencil tip extra sharp and crisp for lining and defining for months to come! Ahhh blessed relief. Question remains is the formula just as good as MAC Tecnakohl? If so, count the Muse happy that someone finally figured out a sharpener was in order!
Oh by the way….how about a smudge tip too? Sephora thought of it all with this one kids!
Good on ya Sephora! MAC failed to remember it but you didn’t!
Yay or Nay?

Remember the old Sephora Harmony Trio Bronzers?
Somewhere deep in the realms of my makeup pile, Sephora Harmony Trio Bronzers in Rose and Bronze lay in peace.
Lord knows the Muse recalls purchasing ‘em but for the life of her she can’t remember using them! After a while she just got tired of them even thought she used them once at the very most.
Have you freaking seen the new Sephora Bronze Harmony Trio in Apricot? Hello Spring!
Sephora Brand Harmony Trio Bronzer in Apricot is looking mighty fine me thinks!
Dare I say the bright rose, orange, and gold shimmering shades aren’t fitting in with the name “harmony bronzer”…oh no…these are something special, something more…!
The shades are so Spring-friendly and remind this Muse of candy! I likey, might I have one now please? Count me curious…this may very well make it onto my wish list soon!
Have the old trios?

Best get into your inbox and start looking for your Sephora Spring Catalog 2009 ladies! The Sephora High Voltage Spring Catalog for 2009 is winging it’s way to your mail box as I type this.
I was shocked to come across my catalog so early in the season but hey I’m not complaining I always get hyped over a Sephora Catalog no matter the time of the year.
Surprisingly it’s jammed packed full of plenty of new products. Why my surprise? Well, I guess the economy has convinced me that somehow variety wouldn’t be making an appearance but have no fear plenty of choices to be had in the new catalog.
This year alot of emphasis on bright neon nail shades with more subdued eyes and brighter lip looks. I found the combos interesting to say the least. Some may open the catalog and think the models wearing the neon colored wigs a tad on the ridiculous side but I was feeling all that neon for some reason. Guess we can chalk it all up to my need for something bright as the weather is bleak and the economy is just plain dark, I’m sure we can all use a tiny bit of color in our lives at the moment! As per Spring 2008 they went with alot of bolder, vibrant looks but mostly it seems to lean more heavily on pooping lip shades and really outrageous nail colors.
Pretty good selections to be had as well and plenty of new items that we have pretty much already heard about already anyway but it’s always nice to read the details, see the prices, and just drool over the pretty pictures. Few reruns are thrown in for good measure from last season but I can cope with that.
Quite a few new mascaras are mentioned such as Benefit Bad Gal Waterproof, a new version of Lorac Specla Effects Mascara, and of course Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash. I was delighted to see the new Smashbox Beauty Guru Palettes which I hadn’t heard of until reading the catalog, those are looking quite nice!
Overall, I guess it isn’t an overwhelming amount of BRAND new items but plenty of selection for sure. I’m normally one for ranting a blue streak about how much I’m hating the catalog but I was kinda hyped to see it in with my mail today.

Anything that promises me the world is easily headed straight to the top of my priority list.
Take for example Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer, promises me the world and then some more.
The Muse is ever, always on the quest for thee best concealer on the market so of course when my eyes recently landed on Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer I was feeling quite hyped.
What’s this? A tattoo concealer? That sounds like some seriously pigmented stuff!
What is it?
A heavy duty, multitasking concealer with a moisturizing, creamy base for covering up bemishes, dark circles, tattoos, and other woes. Supposedly this is super pigmented and wears ultra long. It’s $25 USD so it has to do some of what it promises wouldn’t you agree?
I’m thinking if it can cover up tattoos it shouldn’t have a problem with a few nasty dark circles. Yes, indeed I needs this right away, on the double please, I’ll take a case.
Contrary to whispered rumors that the Kat Von D Collection is a revamped, repackaging version of the Sephora Makeup Collection the Muse can verify that she’s tried a few bits and bobs from the line and quality is brilliant so of course I’m putting my full faith into Miss Von D with this concealer.
It’s on order now and review will be upcoming soon!
Get it now at Sephora!
Gotta work right?
