Smashbox Muse Blush Rush in Masterpiece Review, Photos, Swatches, and FOTD

The Muse kinda sorta thinks that Smashbox was thinking all about her when they created the Smashbox Muse Collection.

Indeed, I think they got the creative energy flowing and had a mental image of the Muse as they mixed up, created, and finally released the Smashbox Muse Collection.

Oh well at least I’d like to think that’s how it went. What? A girl can dream.

When I originally blogged Smashbox Muse I didn’t even realize a blush was being released with the collection! Well duh and hello gorgeous! Smashbox Muse Blush Rush in Masterpiece was obviously made exclusively for me because it’s most flattering on this Muse’s chubby little cheeks…although it’s exclusive for the Muse she’ll share and let you buy one of your own..if you must….teehee!

The packaging on Smashbox Muse Blush Rush is quite cute as it has a flip top lid with little paint spatters all over the compact and the outer box packaging, flip it up to reveal the blush and a nice size mirror! I was slightly scared of the shade which they have entitled Masterpiece in keeping with the “arty” theme of things, as it appears to be a warmer, muddier orange shade and normally that’s not quite flattering on my face. To look at it one would never know how pigmented it is as the formula, upon first glance, appears quite chalky however it blends seamlessly and offers a nice warm peachy pop of color to my cheeks! Likey! See? I told you they had me in mind when they created this collection.

In keeping with Spring I do think that the shade would go perfectly with greens, golds, and browns for a warm, fresh look. It’s suggested on the website to prep and prime with the new Smashbox Hybrid Luminizing Primer (review coming shortly) and apply Smashbox Blush Rush in Masterpiece on top. I haven’t yet tried this but I will do so shortly as I’m curious what the finished results will look like.

All in all I’m quite pleased with the blush and I was finding myself wishing that they had released other shades. The blush is $24 USD and available now at www.smashbox.com

Smashbox Muse Collection

The Muse has fully embraced her “musey” personality for almost two years now on Musings of a Muse and it appears that Smashbox decided it was about time to tell the world how awesome the Muse truly is.

I’m almost but not quite positive that when Smashbox created it’s new Muse Collection they were thinking ALL about this Muse. Honestly who else could they have possibly been envisioning when going about the creative process of creating a Muse Collection right?

Read more about Smashbox Muse Collection after the jump….

The new Smashbox Muse Collection looks quite fun and funky but not completely what this Muse is all about however that does NOT stop me from wanting every single piece in the collection simply because it has my name…errr…I mean my alter ego’s name stamped all over it!

The collection consists of the following items:

Smashbox Muse Lip Paint $21 USD
 5761995

Smashbox Muse Artist Eye Palette $48 USD

 5761997

Smashbox Muse Cream Eyeliner Artist Pencil Set $36 USD
 5761998

Smashbox Hybrid 2-in-1 Luminizing Primer $34 USD
 5761996

It’s actually a pretty nice round up and I thought it was interesting that they included a pencil set as it’s abnormal to have sets such as this after the Holidays.

As you can see the Smashbox Muse Collection has a long way to go to be as uber fabulous and awesome as this Muse but it’ll pass. The Muse thinks she’ll take her chair and table and head to Sephora and the nearest Nordies and set up shop outside. As people purchase the collection the Muse will offer to autograph the boxes of the collection as who doesn’t want an autographed copy of a Muse Collection right?

Hmmm yes I believe I will do that….check for me at your local makeup counter soon!

If you’re want to be all Muse-like (but not as great as the Muse of course) you can head on over to Nordies and nab this collection now! It’s up and happily available for purchase.

What do you think?

Good enough for this Muse?

Need it?

Love it?

Tell your Muse!

Smashbox Rapture Lip Gloss Set Review & Swatches

Oh how I love thee lipgloss let me count the ways!

You come in a wide variety of colors and flavors! You make my lips shiny, glossy, and sometimes even sparkly! You make my lips pop with life and make my teeth look white and bright!

Ahhh gloss…..tis the essence of a beauty junkies life!

That’s why it’s always so exciting when the Holidays roll around and gloss sets start popping up! Variety is the spice of life after all and what better way to get a slew of variety than picking up a gloss gift set from your favorite cosmetic brand!

The Muse was particularly excited about the yummie hues included in the Smashbox Rapture Lip Gloss Set! The set includes six shades of popping lipgloss for the upcoming Holiday season for $29 USD! That’s $4.80 USD per a gloss! Sweet deal right? Plus the shades are some of the best I’ve come across in the world of glossy gift sets!

Radiant (Shimmering Deep Rose)
Illume (Shimmering Beige Gold)
Candid (Shimmering Deep Coral Peach)
Ravishing (Bronze Brown with flecks of Gold)
Stunning (Rosy Fuschia)

Although the glosses are super emoilent I do love the fact that are pigmented enough to wear without staining my lips prior. The finish has a slightly hint of shimmer but nothing to dramatic that you’re looking like a disco ball.

All in all the price is quite nice and the selection of colors are amazing which is pretty much what you drew me to the set to begin with. The shades all have a certain coolness about them but can easily be warmed up with a nice blush!

Smashbox Rapture Lipgloss Gift set is available now from www.smashbox.com plus you get Free Shipping on any order and samples! Do check out the rest of the Smashbox Rapture Holiday Collection as the Muse is loving it all!

Smashbox Enchantress Beauty Kit

I told you earlier about the Smashbox Enchantress Beauty Kit kit but I didn’t have any images for it!

Sad sigh!

However, good news, the Smashbox site has been updated with more of Rapture Collection! The item that really had me curious was the Enchantress Gift Set and it doesn’t disappoint from what I’ve seen so far!

media.nl

The set includes:
Smashbox Soft Lights Quad in Aglow
Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Protege
Smashbox That’s A Wrap Mascara
Smashbox Cream Eye Liner Duo in Caviar and Midnight Brown
Pewter Gray Zip Up Makeup Case

and finally the item that really caught my eye…The Silver Pedant Necklace on a Triple Strand Chain.

The necklace looks quite nice actually and I thought it was rather interesting and unique to include it with this collection!

The entire kit is $45 USD and available now from Smashbox Cosmetics.
