Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup Review

My mum’s Italian so grating cheese is some kind of art form at her house. Indeed, anything that has to do with cheese, sauce, garlic, and pasta is quite like the Mona Lisa.

Since I’m such a professional in the cheese grating department, thanks mum, it wasn’t any surprise I quickly adapted to using the new Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup.

Cheese grater you say Muse?

Indeed, makeup application as easy as grating cheese for your favorite pasta dish.

Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream Review

Salmon is a popular food because of it’s healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and high vitamin content plus it’s ever so tasty isn’t it? It also happens to be the theme surrounding the new Skin Food collection available now in stores.

The line is a concentrated formula rich in omega-3 fatty acid, haloxyl, arbutin and vitamins to improve blood circulation and whiten skin. It includes not only a concealer but also a brightening powder and several creams and serums for use under the eyes.

Aside from the salmon-like formula it also sports a salmon color which is always ideal for covering severe dark circles.

bareMinerals Radiance Rocks

Innovative beauty? Possibly. bareMinerals Radiance Rocks are made up of three minerals in their most natural state.

bareMinerals+Radiance+Rocks

Hmmm….

Interesting but what’s it for?

Jump!

This set is made up of three mineral rocks in various shades for a sheer wash of refreshing, cooling color on eyes, cheeks, or body.

Possibly one of the most interesting cosmetic assembles the Muse has seen to date these do so appear interesting. They come packaged with a Kabuki Brush for application and three shades which are bronze, champagne, and warm rose. Honestly, they look gorgeous but the question is will they be messy or way too pigmented to work with?

Remains to me scene but this Muse did so plop ‘em in her cart at Sephora and is eagerly awaiting their arrival on her doorstep…maybe they’ll be as special as they look!

What do you think?

Available for Sephora Beauty Insiders for $35.

P.S. Bare Minerals has done “rock”-like cosmetics before with a bronzer rock this past Summer.

Too Faced Lip Luxury Free Love Review and Swatches

Urban Decay single handedly convinced me I need more nude pink shades of lipstick in my life with it’s newest color, Naked.

Suddenly, the Muse’s dreams are filled with visions of naked, nude pink shades for my lips. And than Too Faced Lip Luxury in Free Love stepped into my life….!


Click it for the review.

Oh my god dude this lipstick is champagne-infused….w00t! I’m going to party like it’s 1999 tonight. Ha!

But no seriously it really is inflused with champagne…interesting concept eh? I’ve been meaning to try Too Faced Lip Luxury for a fair while now so I’m happy to finally test it out.

It’s quite a nice lippie. Good formula with a smooth application. Very creamy and moisturizing, good pigmentation as well. It’s incredibly lightweight with a shimmering, sparkling finish.

Of course, the Muse is all about the packaging. It comes in metallic pink tube with a diamond colored rhinestone on the top of the cap. Loves it!


But after all this the very best part is the new shade for Fall entitled Free Love. It’s a sweet pale pink shade that’s incredible beautiful on lips. It’s not dramatic, it’s not bold, it’s simply a sweet pink that makes lips look fuller, prettier, and just girlish.

Now it’s not Naked by any means and the Muse does so think you need both Naked and Free Love in your beauty arsenal this season! Where as Naked is more of a perfect pale pink minus shimmer, Free Love is a sparkling nude shade that’s subtle and mod chic.

Too+Faced+Lip+Luxury+Free+Love+8


If you’re a lover of nude pink lips Too Faced Lip Luxury in Free Love will be your best girlfriend this season. Pair it up with a cat eye or a dramatic smoky!

Loves it!

Muse Approval for purchase.

Giorgio Armani Greige Collection Review: Giorgio Armani Manta Ray Eye Shadow Review and Swatches

The Muse told you all about the Giorgio Armani Greige Collection a week or so ago. Honestly, it wasn’t exactly something the Muse was interested in when she finally got some products to test.

I received one lipstick and one shadow both of which looked incredibly dull and boring.

But wow…after I tried both out I was so floored by how simply pretty the shade on my eyes was and the lipstick just added to it.
