Stila Loves Barbie Collection

That crazy chick Barbie not only loves MAC but now she loves Stila too! Who can blame her right? The Muse hearts Stila herself. MAC may have done Barbie already but the Muse couldn’t be more excited that Stila is now bringing us their of version a Barbie Collection!

I’m dancing in circles over the the launch of Barbie Loves Stila which is making a guest starring pre-launch appearance at Sephora starting January 14th, 2009. Mark your calendars ladies as the release is highly anticipated and each canister is numbered and will not be produced more than 10,000 times per a set. This make the collection a collector’s item and the lower the number of your can, the more valuable the set. I don’t care much about the number of my can I just want me some Barbie and Stila makeup and forget the rest! w00t!

Jump ahead to view more pictures of these limited edition Stila Barbie Cans.

A long time ago in a land far, far away the Muse used to collect Stila cans. Lord knows I can’t recall the last time Stila has put out a paint can and now a Barbie LE one? I’m on the case! I’ll take 5. k. Thanks.

The Barbie Loves Stila Collection consists of four separate gift sets and one brand new Stila Barbie Talking Palette Eye Shadow Quad. Likey.

So tell the Muse…

Are you a foxy barbie? Maybe a jewel one? A fun, loving Malibu Barbie? How about a ponytail one?

The Muse thinks she’s a jewel one, a ponytail one, a foxy one, and a malibu one…groan my poor credit card! They are $40 USD so maybe I can afford one of each?

Which set are you loving?

Tell the Muse!

Remember the sets are available from Sephora.com exclusively and Sephora’s 5th Avenue location in New York plus International Sephoras.

Ghosts of Christmas Past Collections

Picture+002


“Are you the Spirit, sir, whose coming was foretold to me?” asked the Muse.

“I am!”

The voice was soft and gentle. Singularly low, as if instead of being so close beside her, it were at a distance.

“Who, and what are you?” the Muse demanded.

“I am the Ghost of Christmas Collections Past.”

Christmas 700312

The Muse is quite fond of rehashing her past and remembering collections that caught her fancy over the years. Take a step back in time with her and remember Holiday Collections from 2007 that brought joy and excitement to us all!

The Muse has always had a special fondness for Aube Shower Jewelry Eyes, just the name along has been an endless source of joy and amusement for this Muse and she did so love and adore the Aube Shower Jewelry Eyes Holiday Palette in EX02. Cool shimmering shades of light blue, white, and brown topped with a grayish liner created the perfect sophisticated holiday eye! With the release of the palette Aube also gifted us with two loose shimmering powders which came in a lovely little glass bottle! Truly a Holiday Collection that excited this Muse!

Step into my past and check out the Aube Holiday Collection 2007 Review

On the heels of Aube’s release came Majolica Majorica’s Holiday Collection which granted our Christmas wishes and brought to us two shimmering Majolook Palettes that would later become my very favorite shades when brought together with my other MJ palettes. Keeping in the theme of sparkling colors MJ also released a shimmering silver mascara overcoat and a sparkling white face, eye, and body powder! This collection has since topped the Muse’s list as a favorite collection released from Majorca Majolica!

Jill Stuart always keeps a special place in my heart even though many releases are quite repetitious of colors past. This year I didn’t feel the need to indulge in the Holiday Coffret but last year I did get tempted by all the sparkling, light hues of the Christmas palette!

Remember Jill Stuart’s Christmas Coffret 2007



Although the Muse sometimes gets a bit ranty and disappointed over Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks she’s almost always on the bandwagon to purchase a new one, especially limited edition ones, as soon as they release. Last year she dove fully into her purchase of the Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick and although she never truly made proper use of it she still looks at it fondly and is happy it graces her collection.

This year the Muse liked but didn’t love the Bare Escentuals Ruby Collection but last year she fondly recalls loving each and every release that Bare Escentuals graced us with! The Holiday Collections from BE last year were something that the Muse still can’t forget!

Picture+014

The crisp coolness of the Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection thrilled the Muse to bits and she still gets hyper each time she whips out her BE Diamond Gossamer powder!

A tale and a review of Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection



Following closely behind Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection was the QVC release of Bare Minerals bareGold Luxury Color Collection and soon after the Nordstrom release of Bare Escentuals Pure Platinum Collection!

The amount of gossamer powder that the Muse ended up hauling with each gift set should last her well into the years to come!

Read on about Gold!



Read further about Platinum!

The Muse let the holiday get away from her this year and in doing so she forgot a few small pieces here and there she wanted to pick up! The NARS Holiday Palette this year was on this Muse’s list but never quite made it into her cart (maybe soon) but she does so remember getting her NARS Night Series Palette last year and holding it in her greedy, sweaty palms as she gleefully smiled down at it!

Drool over a review on the NARS Night Series Palette



Thinking back on the Lavshuca Winter Make Collection the Muse recalls her excitement however she does feel kinda let down that the cardboard palettes from this collection didn’t fair well into 2008! But it doesn’t keep her from recalling how truly lovely and brilliant she thought they were when she first laid eyes on them.

To this day the mystery behind Stila’s “Asia” Only palettes amuses this Muse…Asia only? What? Huh? Confuddled am I! Even though the mystery remains the Muse still loving caresses each of those palettes as they brought back her beloved Stila girls! The packaging was too delightful to resist and the Muse pleads with Stila please more Stila girls! Some of us, after all, miss them crazily!

Enjoy a review on the release of Stila “Asia” Only Palettes from last Holiday Season!

Disappointment sometimes reigns supreme with MAC Holiday if you’re an old school collector but the Muse does still give thanks and praise for the release of the MAC Royal Assets Metallic Eyes Palette!

MAC Royal Assets Holiday 2007

It wasn’t too much of a problem falling deeply in love with a few items from MAC’s Antiquitease Color Collection. The Muse was particularly thrilled to bits and maybe pieces too by Red Romp Lipglass, Queen’s Sin Lipstick, and Uppity Fluidline! The Muse sends blessings to MAC each day for introducing to red lippie items that actually work well for this Muse!

Is there any ever doubt that perfection and luxury is housed in all Guerlain compacts? Purple was the order of business for Guerlain Holiday 2008 but last year gold…gold reigned supreme over Guerlain Holiday 2007!

Diamonds were a girl’s best friend this year and they happened to be just as friendly last year when the Muse got her claws into the Givenchy Diamantismme Holiday Collection! To this day the Givenchy Prisme Solitaire All Over Diamond Powder holds a special place of honor on my vanity!

Stila Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio Review

It’s not too late! There’s still time left to head to Sephora and snatch up a few good gifts for friends and family!

Considering that New Year’s is next week you might want to indulge in Stila Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio which contains three smudge pots for $32 USD. At around $10 USD per a pot the Muse is liking this good deal for an elegantly lined eye look for New Year’s Eve (and day) parties and gatherings!

Picture+016
Stila’s Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio contains three gel eyeliners in black, bronze, and gray. Although most makeup addicts claim MAC Fluidline is the go to product for liner the Muse begs to differ. She finds that fluidline applies streaky and she hates having to go back and re-line as it creates more of a mess! The formula of Stila Smudge Pots applies precisely, easily, and mess free the first time, every time, no re-lining required. As per their name they smudge beautifully well to create that perfect smoked out look plus they make a wonderful base for shadows if you choose.

I thought including three smudge pots in one kit was quite a nice value and I think it makes a rather cute little stocking stuffer or come on who can resist getting it for yourself right? You know you wants it!

Snag your set at Sephora or visit www.stilacosmetics.com

What are your fav potted liners?
