Remember how fond the Muse is of ranting about the lack of face masks available without the US? Asian markets are flooded with all sorts of facial masks and it’s a common part of skincare regime to use these masks for extra moisture, whitening benefits, and a number of other reasons. Almost all masks are commonly found in drugstores at quite an inexpensive price tag.
Now US women are quite deprived of these great treatments and if you’re seeking such a face mask a few select brand such as Shu make these masks but with a high price tag.
I was excited to see that the Sephora Brand Power Mask Collection has popped up at Sephora! Wow finally a company within the US was finally jumping on board the face mask craze.
Don’t get too excited, read ahead to find out why!
The idea behind the Sephora Brand Powder Mask Collection was quite exciting as I loved the idea of finding masks locally at my Sephora store. Cool!
Three masks are available for use one of which is a face mask that delivers extra moisture to the face! The Muse can always use as much moisture as possible on my face. Also available is an eye mask that also delivers moisture, comfort, and cooling to the eye area.
And finally another face mask option is available that nourishes tired skin and creates a more fresher, newer you!
Are you excited yet? I was.
Until I seen the price.
Umm hello expensive how are you?
The masks are not sold in bulk such as ones from Asian companies which means you’re getting a SINGLE mask, ONE time use for a price tag that starts at $8 and ends somewhere at $12.
Even Shu Eye Masks run cheaper at $45 for a box of 8 which adds up to around $5.65 per a mask.
Um no my face does not need moisture at that cost! Especially moisture that isn’t even from a high end brand name.
Needless to say you won’t catch these in my cart until they are on clearance for a buck ninety nine. The Muse is all about playing it cheap with these masks! Love the idea, no likey the price.
Lower your prices Sephora and they will come.
I suppose the Spring isn’t always about pastel shades. I can’t help but think light and airy for Spring but that’s not the case with most collections releasing this year and year’s past. I imagine most brands aren’t of the same frame of mind as the Muse and when they think Spring they think time for a “tropical holiday” and time to beat the cold and embrace the warmth of a warm vacation on an island somewhere with the sun beating down on our heads and the smell of colitas rising up through the air
…oh wait…that’s a song isn’t it?
Sorry I meant to say the warm smell of tanning lotion!
Yea, well you’re either an Eagles fan and loved it or didn’t get it at all.
Sephora has embraced that warm, tropical feeling with it’s brand new collection entitled Moroccan Sunrise.
The Muse say…whoa likey!
I honestly have no love loss for Sephora Brand cosmetics but I do generally love how hard they try when they do release an interesting collection so be the case with the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Collection, it truly is rather gorgeous.
The general fanfare is included with the release including brush sets, makeup bags, and the odd little cosmetic bit and bob such as a mirror and atomizer. However, what really caught my attention was the entire makeup part of the collection. It all looks quite nice and dare I say indulge-able. Is that even a word? Well I deem it a word, place it in your Musepedia of words and phrases this Muse uses.
I personally think they went a bit too far with the fanfare items and left the color makeup part of the collection lacking. We all know that the huge selection of Moroccan themed makeup bags will end up on clearance quickly enough so why bother releasing so many? They should have expanded further on the makeup line up in my humblest as this is really quite nice.
The collection is tiny as you can see and understand why I’m ranty now. It includes a gold powder, a beautiful eye palette, and a few lipglosses. If I were Sephora I’d have done some blushes, maybe an eyeliner or two in sunny shades, and perhaps some lipsticks. They actually did pretty well with what they did release however a blush would have been superb but hey we can’t haz it all can we?
The fluff pieces:
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t thinking about adding that eye palette and bronzer too my wish list! Hmmmm….decisions, decisions…
What do you think of the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Collection?
Tell the Muse!
Here’s one that could be interesting, check it out:
Sephora Brand Buildable Cover Concealer…hmmm…count this Muse intrigued!
Available in three shades for $16 USD the Muse could say that this makes a girl curious for sure. Sephora Brand Buildable Cover Concealer looks like Benefit Boi-ing but supposedly dries to a powder-like finish. Not sure I’m loving a cream to powder formula in concealer can you say creasing? But it supposedly hides just about everything including tattoos…whoa…this could be good.
Buildabe coverage makes this a customized concealer for large or small problems. Contains Viatmins A and E with hydrating agents such as cocoa oil.
Sure sounds like it’s food from the concealer gods…whether it is or not remains to be seen!
In the cart you go….review coming soon!
The Muse finds that a majority of Sephora brand cosmetics are a trash…could this be awesome?
Count me curious!
Sephora sometimes sneakily places items on sale and before you notice that they are giving away cosmetics for next to nothing, everything is normally snatched up and long gone.
So what’s the trick for scoring a Sephora sale?
Allow the Muse to tell you……….
You may already know this tip but it’s fairly simple the Muse suggests doing it once a week or once every two weeks to carry away the swag from Sephora when a sale hits.
What is it Muse? What is it? How do we score at Sephora?
Simply search “sale” on Sephora’s site and anything and everything that’s currently on clearance will pop up on the screen!
Go practice and try it out for yourself! Click! But don’t tell anyone else. It’s our secret, k? Shhhhh.
I think the on10 Collection available at Sephora is simply darling so I’m a little upset at how drastically they cut their prices as this could be the beginning of the end. I sure hope I’m wrong.
The good news is you can grab some serious steals and deals at the moment from the line. The Muse is all about stocking up on some of these cute little tins of balm especially at these prices………
Virtually the entire catalog of on10 Lip Balm singles has been cut from the original price tag of $10 USD and is now down to $6.30 USD. I do think they were worth the original price but I kinda sorta feel like $6 bucks is a fairer deal for a tin of balm, maybe I’m cheaping it a bit here but I love the idea of $6 bucks when compared to $10!
I think the best part of on10 is the ridiculous variety. They have SOOOOOO many quirky little flavors and if you’re a big fan of balms this is sure to tickle your fancy. Plus I failed to mention the adorable vintage style design! Loves it!
At $6.30 USD the Muse says go Steal It! She’s going to!
This is a hard one because the Muse has never found a brand of cosmetic that she didn’t like but she thought hard about it and here are a few that kinda sorta don’t tickle my fancy!
We all know and love Sephora but the Muse doesn’t feel any great love for the Sephora brand cosmetics. I’ve purchased a few bits and pieces but I’m always somewhat disappointed with whatever I buy and honestly for the quality I think it’s a tad bit over priced.
Heck I love Laura! I think the Laura Mercier Flawless Face Kit was incredible! However, I do visit the counter and just pass by on a majority of the offerings. I find it a tiny bit boring in all honesty….
I bow to the gods of Shiseido! But did you ever notice a majority of my Shiseido collection is from branch off brands within Japan such as Majorca Majolica? I never really indulge my need for Shiseido at my local counter. I dunno why but I really never found anything that Shiseido US offers that I absolutely must have aside from their killer face cotton!
I’m trying to think of more but hells knows this is a tough question for the Muse who loves just about anything and everything about cosmetics!
How about you? Which brands just don’t interest you!
Tell the Muse!
