Fall Collections 2007

Stila Fall Fantasy 2007

Stila’s Fall Collection, Fall Fantasy, is up on it’s website and available for purchase!

Laguna

Madagascar

Moss

It’s hard to get into the Fall frame of mine when it’s still 90 degrees outside my door but hey I can always be tempted by cosmetics right?

Sadly, this collection isn’t really calling my name and I’m not all that excited about it. It truly makes me realize how much I miss the Stila girls and the cute packaging of yesteryear.

The three palettes are kind of cute but too “grown up” for my tastes. Plus the moss palette looks similar, both in color and style, to the palette that was released last fall in the wallet style!

These are something you might want to pick up if you find them on sale at a Cosmetics Company Store, during the Stila Warehouse Sale, or just if they happen to pop up on E-bay for a really good price. Otherwise, you can probably just skip them all together in my humble opinion!

Oh well..bit of money saved here!

Matte is Where it’s At!

untitled092829
For the self confessed glitter haters I am the barer of good news! Urban Decay has introduced 12 New Shades of Matte shadows! Oh my! I want them all! Yes, I did say that so get over it! I’m an avid collector of UD shadows and nothing will stop me from getting these! Well…maybe I’ll wait an itty bitty while before ordering..but it shouldn’t be too long!

I’ve read a few blogs and they had mentioned that Urban Decay “promised” the shadows to be pigmented. This seems like a question. Is there any doubt these will be awesome? Come on…let’s be honest…these are going to reign supreme in our collection and possibly go for hand to hand combat with MAC matte shadows!

I’m also hearing general excitement about Narcotic a bright turquoise!!! Oh the my! I, too, felt like it was Christmas upon seeing this gorgeous hue! It’s turquoise which means I’m all over that like candy!

Hmmmm…but my brain begins to kick in and I stop thinking with my excited emotions and I realize wait a sec…this looks like freaking Piccadilly! Now I’m in a panic….a gorgeous shade of turquoise that just may be a rerun? Jesus, what an excitement killer!

How terribly wrong of Urban Decay to get my hopes up only to have them crushed by the idea that this very may well be a spin off of Piccadilly!

Narcotic Matte Eyeshadow

My Beloved, Rare, Long Ago Discontinued Piccadilly
Picture+05755

Anyway the moral of the story is I still absolutely want Narcotic and the other 11 shades! However, Narcotic still seems to have the look of Piccadilly to it! I can cross my fingers that maybe, just maybe it’s even more vibrant and bold than Piccadilly!

The 12 New Shades Are:

Chronic: Bright Light Green
ABC Gum: Pale Peach
Foxy: Light Neutral
Narcotic: Bright Turquoise
Revolver: Stone Gray
Perversion: Jet Black
Secret Service: Medium Brown
Illegal: Smoky Rose
Cult: Eggplant
Naked: Buff Nude
Purple Haze: Bright Purple (Ooo! Cool! Purple Haze sans Glitter!)
Yeyo: Powder White

I think these will be great for layering with the regular Urban Decay shadows! All in All some nice shades in this bunch and long over do as plenty of people found application with UD shadows a general mess! Personally I love ‘em and never had much problem with fall outs but I know some people who are sure to be happy with a matte formula!

Speak to me!

Are these on your wish list? Do you love the old Urban Decay shadows? Prefer these matte ones?

MuseTV Presents: Fall Collection Haul

‘ello there!

I was lucky enough to get a delightful little package in the mail of which contained the Fall Japanese goodies!

I did a video blog of ‘em for you guys! I’ve added in pics as well and will be doing reviews and Face of the Days pics very soon!

MuseTV Presents: Fall Collection Haul:

Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures icon sad I normally take photos with my trusty Kodak DX6490. I decided that I’d go with cute and super portable so I purchased a Sony Cyber Shot T20 this past week! I was excited to have a smaller cam to use for taking pics for my blog and just generally toting around for small shots here and there!

My DX6490 is only 4MP’s has a virtually no ISO so the T20 was quite appealing at 8MP with an obscene ISO, HD output, onscreen editing, and a tons of other bells and whistles.

Upon getting it in the mail I flipped out at how cute it was. I proceeded to try some Face of the Day pics plus some additional variety, random shots and………it’s crap. I strongly suggest not bothering! I’ve just now finished wrapping it up and it’s going right back for a full return! I am astounded at the crap quality of the pics! Everything had a weird orange tinge too it plus the ISO had a setting of 300 because anything more would cause some mega crap quality photos!

Do tell me whatcha think of these pics taken with the cybershot as compared to my older pics in my blog taken with my trusty kodak!

I’ve been sorely tempted to purchase a Nikon D40 but can’t justify the cost for a hobbyist like myself. It’d be far different if I had a family with children and such but just to purchase the D40 for hobby shots of cosmetics, some vacation photos, and random shots seems just a silly purchase really! I adore photography but the general idea of the D40 seems a spoiled indulgence on my part!

Anyway!

Tempting Offerings!

Obviously I have way too much freaking time on my hands today and blogging calms me so you’re stuck with me posting far too many entries today!

Personally, I believe that any time that I share with you should be considered some sort of blessed blessing! After all I’m very important and special and what not!

Sorry I got off track, that happens sometimes when I talk about my fabulous self!

In a prior blog I discussed the drama of my first Bobbi Brown purchases. It appears I haven’t learned my lesson in regards to Bobbi Brown because I just stumbled onto the Make-Up Bag Blog and glory be my eyes were blinded by some new palettes being released for the fall Bobbi Brown line up!

I got that funny feeling in my stomach and my hands began to shake upon seeing these shiny new palettes! It must be love??? Well, maybe not love but lust was in there somewhere for sure!

After my previous burn with the Sand and Surf palette I’m left feeling unloved by Bobbi Brown but maybe…just maybe…kinda….sorta…..I could be convinced to purchase the new line of palettes popping up for Fall!

Behold! Bobbi Brown Metallics Collection
bbmetallicsfall07d

This collectin includes:

Burnt Sugar Metallics

  • Toffee Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Gold Dust Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Burnt Sugar Metallic Eye Shadow

Velvet Plum Metallics

  • Raisin Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Champagne Quartz Eye Shadow
  • Velvet Plum Metallics

Forest Metallics

  • Sage Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Balsam Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Forest Metallic Eye Shadow

Midnight Metallics

  • Platinum Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Rockstar Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Midnight Metallic Eye Shadow

I know I’m going to regret even thinking about purchasing these but I’m sorely tempted by the blue, green, and velvet palettes look amazing!
