MAC Dazzleglass Creme Review and Swatches

You never really think that a brand can go and take something you really love and make it into something even better. For example have you seen many movie sequels in your life that are actually good? I can only name a few.

Thus the idea of taking a product and re-releasing it with a new formula automatically makes a the Muse skeptical. How can it possibly be as awesome as the first round?

It’s possible. MAC Dazzleglass Creme is proof of that.

Benefit Velvet Eye Shadow I Cannes & I Will Review and Swatches

The Muse feels it’s her responsibility as a Benefit girl to let you know that the Benefit Velvet Eye Shadow Collection has been updated with a new shade called, “I Cannes & I Will”.

Benefit Velvet Eye Shadow I Cannes I Will 7

This was a little hush, hush as Benefit didn’t really go full force into Fall as many brands do. You know Benefit they like to wow us with one major release at a time not entire color collections but just a single awesome item every month or so.

Loving Benefit Velvet Eye Shadow? If so take the jump for a peep at the new color!

Guess Who’s Back? MAC Volcanic Ash

MAC Style Black 1

Today the Muse is hoping and praying for you. As of September 24th MAC releases Style Black and the Muse is every so hopeful you’re hauling it. No, no not the color cosmetics…..no worries this Muse understands not everyone can pull off black lipstick.

She’s talking about the re-release of MAC Volcanic Ash.

Oh joy! Bless Be! The gods have answered my prayers. MAC Volcanic Ash is repromoted for a limited time…yes it’s only a limited time so best get a case of it.

I should hope you’ve tried this incredible face scrub. Last year I did a review and a huge rave on MAC Volcanic Ash. I’m delighted that it’s returning and equally pleased they changed the packaging. Originally Volcanic Ash came housed in a plastic jar which was a big old mess. This year they released it in a squeeze bottle which is absolutely ideal and way more hygienic. See? The MAC Gods listen to our rants and improve on their failures.

On top of the release of MAC Volcanic Ash you’ll get the added bonus of Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask. I was so smitten with the latter I didn’t get a chance to try the mask on the last release so I’m every so happy to get my chance to haul it. Anyone try the mask? Tell me the deets.

Please tell me you’re as overjoyed as I am at the promise of Volcanic Ash’s re-release.

If you never tried it you absolutely must! It’s incredible.

Beauty Abroad: Banila Co De La Couture II

Banila Co De La Couture II2

Banila Co hits the Fall scene with a brand new…ahem…a rehashed release of De La Couture II. If you’re a fond fan of Korean makeup you probably remember last year’s release of Banila Co De La Couture. I imagine they took the idea and just ran with it again this year. Although it’s new items and new colors it does still fail to wow me into believing I absolutely need it and can’t breath without it. Dare I say last year’s colors were actually more exciting!

Jump ahead for the deets.
