theBalm has updated it’s collection with a few Spring releases that may interest you!
I was particularly impressed with the new mascara they released which is very close to the design of Fairy Drops Mascara (Click!) that I had previously reviewed. This is a dual sided mascara which offers an end for volume and end that will separate and plump lashes! The mascara is $19 USD and available from Sephora right now!
Also introduced is the Sexy Mama Translucent Powder which is an invisible blotting powder to absorb excess oil! I love the cute retro print on the cover! Cute right? This is $18 USD and available now as well!
Lastly is to the Rescue Lip Treatment which is $14 USD. The gloss is completely vegan and the sale of each balm goes to the rescue of Pugs. The gloss is a clear lip treatment that conditions and protects lips!
All in all some very nice releases from theBalm. I’m a sucker for their cute packaging!
Want any of these?
Tell the Muse
As much as I wanted to wait for Sephora’s Friend and Family Discount to take place I couldn’t do it and my lemmings got the better of me! Thus I ended up purchasing all of the new Overshadows from theBalm.
Really! Honest! I did try to refrain but they were so tempting in their cute little pots all shimmery and glimmering! I think I heard them whisper, “buy me, buy me”…Oh wait maybe that was just me whispering it to myself.
I had previously blogged about these gems and you can read my first impression here.
These are $14 each so they aren’t going to break the bank too much and a little goes a long way. There are four colors available and of course yours truly, had a hard time firguring out which I wanted so all four somehow got plopped into my cart.
The shadows are super pigmented and can easily be worn as a shadow if you so choose but you’ll be nicely rewarded if you use them as per the instructions which would be over your shadow.
I find that these work a treat on spicing up matte shadows (I don’t have too many matte shadows but these do a great job of taking matte into wow) or adding that extra bit of sparkle you need to make your eyes pop!
If you’re a glitter hater these are not for you as they have tons of yummie shimmery bits and pieces to keep the Muse very happy!
These are a snap to use and a tiny bit on your brush is enough to light up your eyes and take any old eyeshadow and turn into a new sparkling shade! The four shades available are:
If You’re Rich, I’m Single
This is a mauve shimmer but it can pass for almost brown in color. Works perfect over purples, browns, and blacks.
No Money, No Honey
My favorite of the lot. This is a shimmering gold color and works well on top of yellows, oranges, pinks, blacks, and browns.
Work Is Overrated
Another fav of mine this is a shimmering light pink color and works well over golds, browns, pinks, and purples.
You Buy, I’ll Fly
Yet another fav of mine this one is a gorgeous shimmering cooper shade and works fantastic on top of brown mainly! It also works well on oranges and yellows.
I have to say even if the quality didn’t sell me I’d probably be so diseased as to purchase them for the mega cute packaging! Each pot has a different glamorous girl on the case which really adds a sweet touch to the cosmetic
The Muse recommends them!
Remember those moving pens from yesteryear?
I live in New York thus I am overexposed to crazy sovereigns of all kinds. Statue of Liberty keychains, I Love New York T-Shirts, Empire State Building figures, and of course the moving pen.
Now if you’ve never seen a moving pen let me elaborate further. Basically it’s a regular everyday pen but the upper part would have some sort of scene. In my case it’d be a scene of New York and a taxi. The taxi part of the scene would move up and down the pen as you flipped the pen upside down to right side up!
A moving screwdriver pen with a truck that moves back and fourth:
Fascinating isn’t it?
Oh you wanted to know what the hell this has to do with cosmetics didn’t you?
Sorry about that
theBalm has decided to nick the idea of the moving pen and use it on their new lipglosses called Balm Shell.
Each gloss has a different girly fun scene such as a day at the beach, a day shopping, etc..etc.. The moving illustration is unique to each shade and story line within the glosses little handle!
When the lip-gloss is finished, the handle can be unattached and used as a keychain!
The Muse wants some of these just for the cute factor alone!
Each gloss is $22 each and comes with the keyring.
OooooOoooooOooo! Something else to get excited about! theBalm has been amazing me with it’s nifty little here and there releases for the past year or so! They have outdone themselves with these! These are a bit of shimmering powder that can be used anywhere (body, eyes, cheeks, etc…) but they are recommended for spicing up your shadows! Apply your own shadow, apply Overshadow for a bit of sparkle and shimmer! Takes the ordinary to the extraordinary!
You know how I feel about sparkle!
These are definately a WANT item!
