Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Maui Wowie and Midnight Cowboy, these are golden, they shimmer, they contain heaps and heaps of sparkle, and I love ‘em. Can’t do without, no way, no how.
long since gone but big enough to last me into my next life! Swirling shades of beautiful maroon, red, hints of shimmering orange and gold…you get the point? Love!
I’ve done an ode to MAC FireSpot
prior to this but it’s worth speaking of my great love again. Bright pigmented fiery orange, indeed it’s love!
Milani Runway Eyes
in Beach Sand is full of shimmery gold, I see a trend developing. Best shadow that Milani carries, hands down. It’s Summer right? So sportin’ this all through those long, hot days!
ALL of the Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadows
are to die for but the soft pink allure and shimmer of Ballet holds the Muse’s heart.
I remember my rave about Napoleon Eye Patrol in Private Angel
when my blog was still new, not alot has changed in regards to my feelings for this shadow. Again, another shimmering shade of gold and oh so pretty!
I’ve been known to get excited about Vincent Longo Wet Diamond Eye Shadow. Verite is my fav shade from the collection, believe me I have ‘em all! Deepest army green around with plenty of sparkle.
B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful in Burke is always my fav eye shadow wash. Shimmering white makes the perfect prep for my bolder shadow shades!
Mattese N.Y.C. Shadow Dust in Queen is not only cheap as day old chips but gorgeous. The deepest shade of turquoise this Muse has ever had the pleasure of owning!
Those are my 10 Eye Shadows I can’t leave without! What are some of yours?
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Ecstasy slipped by this Muse. I was blinded by the cosmetic glory of the Urban Decay Get Baked Eye Shadow Palette that I didn’t realize that Urban Decay had sneakily injected two brand new shadows to their catalog on the fly that are available exclusively at Sephora. But of course this is always something that gets me hyper, I mean seriously have you seen my Urban Decay Eye Shadow Collection? You haven’t? For shame! Check it here.
In honor of my excitement about new shadow shades I’m all about Product Musing Urban Decay Ecstasy today!
Check it after the jump!
First off, Ecstasy is not Flash. Flash is a more true grape purple where as Ecstasy is more violet. But let’s keep it simple, if you love purple you’ll love Ecstasy. Particularly good news is the lack of shimmer, not good news for the Muse mind you but good news for anyone who doesn’t want a load of shimmer in their shadow. The formula is very smooth, shimmer-free, slightly semi-matte in feel but smooth and velvety. It blends incredibly well and gives your eyes a real knock out bunch of purple. It’s been a fair while since Urban Decay has added any shadows to their collection so I was quite excited to see a new shade. Minx is also a new shade which I’ll be musing for you tomorrow!
Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Ecstasy is available now exclusively at Sephora
. Check it out! Likey!
So you want surreal skin? Yes, well welcome to the club. We all want surreal skin. Perfect skin, flawless, gorgeous skin. A myth? Possibly. But occasionally we run into one or two products that help us fake it. Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Powder can add to the illusion of flawless skin nirvana.

Hello, my name is the Muse and I hate mineral foundations. Yak, itchy, mask-like, flaky, horrible mineral foundation. I’ve run across maybe one or two mineral foundations that I like and I’ll go so far as to admit most end up in the bottom of my draw. I dunno why but I just can’t get on board with minerals. However, I will admit that Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Powder Foundation is my go to item for Summer coverage. I like this one, alot. And that’s saying something for a mineral foundation hater.
I’m trying to decide if I like this for the formula or if I just love the convenience of the packaging. I’m not on board with the whole tap, swirl, buff routine so this makes things simple. It has a puffy soft sponge on top and a simple dab on my face and a quick swipe around will get my face looking pretty flawless.
I should mention that Philosophy Supernatural comes in the same style packaging but it’s not nearly as good. It’s not pigmented, quite sheer really, plus it makes me itchy. I didn’t experience any of this with Urban Decay Surreal Skin. Surreal Skin is quite pigmented with buildable coverage for sheer or medium application depending on what you reckon your skin needs. This doesn’t contain talc so this could be one reason my skin likes it so much.
As the Summer sets in and my forehead decides it wants to shine like a mirror I’ll be happy to have Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Powder in my beauty arsenal. It gives my skin good flawless coverage, keeps it semi-matte without flaking or making my dry skin look worst, doesn’t itch, doesn’t look like mask, and just generally works brilliantly.
This is one of the few mineral makeups I do like which makes it worthy of a look at. Loves it.
Good stuff and a Summer Makeup Must Have for this Muse!
What are your fav mineral foundations?

Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy is possibly my favorite shadow of all time which is why I’m always excited when they introduce it in different formats. A new shade of it, in glitter liner format, in a lipstick, etc….
To put a twist on my Summer, Urban Decay has introduced my favorite shadow shade into a lotion. Oh. my. god. Loves it!
Jump ahead to hear me squeal about the joys of Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Body Shimmer Lotion.
Urban Decay you cheeky little monkey! You know just how to make a girl squeal like a little girl on Christmas morning. Meet Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Body Shimmer Lotion:
Ok, let me tell you a secret. The Muse wasn’t paying attention the first time she got the good word of this lotion and for some odd reason she was under the impression it was a tiny bottle, like maybe, I dunno, 2 oz in size or less. I dunno why I was thinking that. Doh!
It’s actually a whopping 7oz! It’s a big bottle! Likey! Enough lotion in here to get you through Summer without probs but the Muse thinks you’d best stock up anyway as hey, you can never have too much shimmer in your life.
First off we need sniff-o-vision around here because I’m sincerely dying for you to take a whiff of this if you haven’t already. It’s tropical, coconut gorgeousness. Think of tanning oil but with a softer edge. Beautiful, glorious scent! They call the scent milk and honey I call it hot Summer night!
Now the formula is a super light, paraben-free, fast absorbing lotion that leaves skin with a delicate veil of golden shimmer. I thought the sparkle was very subtle, very pretty, and perfectly golden. If you’re a huge fan of shimmering lotions but aren’t always thrilled with the overkill of sparkle this is sure to please as it’s very sheer. It’ll look glorious on a tan that’s for sure. Use it on legs, arms, shoulders, wherever you want a golden sparkling sheen of Midnight Cowboy.
All this Muse can say is ride ‘em cowboy!
