As Seen by the Muse: Sephora Blockbuster Palette 2009

As Seen by the Muse 1

Yes, well, we all know I’m not too terribly keen on Sephora palettes….sorry just can’t get on board with ‘em. But as seen by this Muse the new Sephora Blockbuster Palette for 2009 on the Sephora Blog. The Muse was thinking you you might like to see it for yourself.

Sephora won the Allure Best All Over Palette Award for it and promises its bigger and badder than prior releases (still looks like a bunch of cheap makeup to me, love ya Sephora just don’t love your palettes).

Looks pretty loaded from these photos plus they included a slew of eye liners too….or at least that’s what those pencils look like. I’m looking forward to seeing the actual design of the compact itself which will probably play an important role in this year’s Holiday theme.

What do you think?

Sephora The Smokey Eye Brush Set.

Sephora+The+Smokey+Eye+Brush+Set

I’m a want to create the perfect smoky eye for Fall.

In order to obtain my ideal smoky eye I think I shall indulge in the Sephora The Smokey Eye Brush Set…..

See here?

Everything I need to create said smoky eye…btw is it smokey or smoky…hmm…

Jump for it!

$42 bucks and a near 5 star rating on Sephora has me wanting this kit…I’m such a bloody mush when it comes to brush sets. I always tell myself, “You so don’t need another brush set…” but my evil side proceeds to reply with, “Yes you do, what could one more hurt?”

This six piece set contains tools for creating a perfect smoked out eye. I actually do a fair job of a smoky eye on myself and don’t need a brush set to do it but hey….my evil side said it’s ok to indulge.

You’ll get a total of five Sephora Professionelle (I wonder if the “le” on the end of Professional makes these more important) Brushes and a how-to booklet plus a chic faux leather case for toting around your tools.

The brushes included are a wide smudger, an all over shadow brush, a small domed smudger, and a dual sided brow brush and comb. Plus did I mention you get Volume Mascara too? Sweetness!

I think I wants it if that’s ok. I just don’t think I needs it but hey who’s keeping track of that!

Sephora Fall Catalog 2009


As predicted by yours truly in my previous post the Sephora Fall Catalog 2009 is all about Fall Trends for the season. Dare I say I can’t recall Sephora Fall 2008? How weird! The Muse’s mind is working slow today to say the least.

Moral of the story is Sephora choose this year’s theme on Fall 2009’s trendy looks that I’m sure we will be privy to on the catwalks in September. Until that time I took some snapshots of the new catalog for you to peep at!

Check it below!

Many of this year’s looks are pretty much the typical Fall fair which we have seen a quite a bit over the past two years or so such as a dramatic cat look, bold lips, and smoky eyes. Although many of the looks lack color (it’s Fall so who wants color I guess!) I’m still enjoying the elegant, sophisticated, classical looks they choose for the catalog.

Many of the products in this catalog are already released such as the Make Up For Ever HD Collection, Urban Decay Lipstick Collection, and a few odd pieces that are new such as the Bare Escentuals Buxom Line (new liner, lip liner, etc…), and of course Kat Von D’s Perfumes. Basically the catalog won’t be bankrupting you any time soon as the offerings are simply nothing to get too excited about if you’re 1. read about them already or 2. hauled them recently!

Without further commentary from me here’s some of the pics from the catalog that should be arriving in your mail box soon or maybe it’s already there!


Overall, it’s nicely put together this year but nothing jumped up and grabbed me. The catalog is medium size or so, not too big, not too small. If you follow makeup trends this should please as for me I’m a march to my own beat kinda girl so the trends aren’t really thrilling.

Did you get your Sephora Fall Catalog yet?
