Spring Greens! 5 Great Green Eye Shadows for Spring


I can’t help but associate Spring with the color green. Green symbolizes rebirth somehow and the beginning of a warmer season when the new flowers begin to bloom, the grass begins to peek it’s head up from the cold melting blanket of snow, and nature begins to come alive with the warmer weather.

You should probably be prepared as Spring is right around the corner and what better way to brace yourself for the up coming season than with five great green eye shadows that are sure to help you kick off Spring!


For the budget friendly makeup girl try out Milani Runway Eyes Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Leaf Green which is a sparkling light green that looks gorgeous on it’s own or paired up with a softer lilac or a darker green for a beautiful contrast! At around $4 USD this won’t break into your Spring budget. Get it this week at CVS during the Milani Buy One Get One 50% Off Sale!




Want to go a bit darker? Dark green always looks mysterious and alluring on brown eyes, take the Muse’s word for it! For a cheap, inexpensive dark green eye look try out Terra Eye Shadow in Emerald Green which runs around $6.49 to $7.49 USD at Duane Reade Drugstores.




If you want to step up your game and indulge in a sparkling green shadow try out Vincent Longo Wet/Dry Sparkling Eyeshadow in Verite. This dark green shade has plenty of sparkle and looks beautiful used wet or dry!




Urban Decay is known for it’s heavy duty sparkly eye shadows but Acid Rain has a nice silky finish sans glitter and packs plenty of soft Spring green that will light up your eyes!




Take your green abroad and indulge in a minty green shadow like Maquillage Eye Shadow in GR168. This minty green shade offers a different shade of green for Spring that’s unique and pleasing on any color eye!

Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss

Check out my review, product photos, and swatches of these new glosses by clicking here!

Ok so the whole guy in his underwear on top of the new Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lipglosses had me worried but it gets better and better. Now I’m kinda lemming these after getting the full details about ‘em!



Check it.

Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss is available in eight shades in different finishes such as cream, shimmer, and sparkle. If the finishes and the shade selection doesn’t thrill you how about the fact that it’s creme brulee flavored and is a plumping gloss? Oh my god all these features make me feel like I’m buying a new car. Guys in underwear, plumping action, shimmer, sparkle, and cream finishes plus creme brulee flavored? Am I missing anything? Hand me the keys I’m taking these bad boys for a ride!

Hey, if seeing the front of the dude in his Hanes wasn’t enough you can flip the gloss over for the backside view too. Holy hotness Batman!

Now the tubes even have pheromone ink which you can rub to enhance sexual attraction….see? Tuck it in your purse on clubbing nights, rub, and guys will flock towards you and your awesome lip gloss!


Now we’ve been introduced to Kirk in my previous post and I think we all weren’t feeling the love for Kirk but we have seven other guys to choose from and looks like some of those are hot so the idea of a naked guy on my cap is becoming more and more appealing! And best of all each of these guys was hand picked by Urban Decay and is an actual person….maybe you’ll score a date with the dude on your gloss cap…it could happen!


I’m thinking James sounds good…a little emo always makes things interesting and David…love those professional types! Oh and Jesse, the Muse loves the rocker dudes!




Which one is you type?

Women have been objectified throughout the years time to take your medicine guys!

Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss will launch on the Urban Decay site as of March 15th so be prepared for the sexy to come at you full force!

Urban Decay Summer Collection 2009: Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss

The British Beauty Blogger has a preview of the latest Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss and I got a little scared when I seen it.


But Muse why are you scared? It looks kinda cute. But…Well, that dude on the top half of the cap in his underwear is enough to worry a Muse. Turns out that the Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss is a uber slim gloss that tucks in your jean pocket without causing lumps or bumps.

And that guy? He’s a holographic image that appears dressed or undressed (don’t be dirty! Undressed but with his underwear firmly in place)….now the Muse likes men but the idea of having an undressed dude on the cap of my gloss makes me wonder……

Loves it?

Leaves it?

The downward spiral into makeup addiction hell began soon after!

All that glitter, all that pigment, all that bloody shimmer…who wouldn’t want to collect them all?

I’ve sinned many, many times with my Urban Decay Eyeshadow purchases….please forgive me? You know you loves ‘em too but it’s ok if you don’t want to admit it.

Your faithful makeup junkie,
the Muse




Lover, collector, obsessed fool for Urban Decay Eyeshadow?

Tell the Muse!

Tis ok, you can admit your addiction to your fellow diseased cosmetic junkie! I won’t tell anyone shhhh….sometimes these things get out of hand.

Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadow Mystery Solved!

The Muse was busy thinking about Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadows recently. Remember when she had mentioned that Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadows aren’t such a new item?


As I recall it these were around a good deal ago. Same packaging, same creamy texture, and a few of the same colors too I think! Of course, I didn’t mind a rerun as they turned out damn well this second time around. But I couldn’t help but wonder what exactly was different about these new shadows, if anything?!

Jump ahead to finally hear the mystery solved!

I remember having an Urban Decay Cream Eye Shadow in Midnight Cowboy many moons ago and another shade the name of which escapes me at the moment and of course when they re-released these I couldn’t help but wonder had anything changed? I also realized that MANY of you were wondering the same thing as I’ve gotten dozens of emails asking me, “Please Muse what’s the difference between this version and the old version?”.


Turns out I’ve finally solved the mystery! The new version of these shadows have “silicone technology”. Clever right? Who knows what the hell that is….I had to do a little homework and from what I understand the shadows do indeed have a brand new formula that has a special silicone texture which lets you blend well before it stays put. Another words these shadows stay “wet” and “creamy” a heck of alot longer than normal cream shadows so it gives you plenty of time to blend it up before it dries down.


This makes perfect sense as the texture is indeed an interesting loosely packed cream formula which doesn’t dry down right away. I both love and hate this because 1. it does make it easier to blend and 2. it kinda makes it a little bit difficult too! It’s all about packing on the right amount of color so you aren’t left with a streaky mess!

Anyway!

That’s the mystery solved in case you were wondering what it is that was different about this release and the past release.

Thoughts?
