Holiday Collections 2008
The new Art Deco Holiday Collection entitled Glamour Avantgarde has launched on the Art Deco website. It all looks rather stunning and the Muse feels quite a bit of excitement over all the gorgeous goodies!
Where as many collections concentrate on either a gold or a silver look for the holidays, Art Deco took it a step further and introduced both gold and silver to create a stunning, contrasting, shimmering look that totally appeals to this Muse! I do think I might splurge out on a majority of this collect as I truly can’t resist the shimmer and just the overall chic, elegant feel of it. The stars of the collection are a highlighting loose powder and a highlighting pressed powder. The pressed powder is made up of dusky rose and brown shimmering shades and is quite reminiscent of the powder included with the new Magie Deco Holiday Coffret which I’ll be reviewing for you shortly. The Art Deco Glamorous Mineral Powder is supposely a warm apricot shade with a subtle shimmer that creates a warm glow to your face.
The following items are being released with Art Deco Glamour Avantgarde:
3 Art Deco Shimmering Shadows
Glam Granite Grey
Glam Red Violet
Glam Petrol Blue
1 New Shade of Art Deco Glam Stars Liquid Eye Liners
2 Shades of Art Deco Diamond Lashes
4 Shades of Art Deco Shimmer Lipstick
Fresh Fuchsia Shimmer
Art Deco Glamorous Highlighter
Art Deco Glamorous Mineral Powder
As you can see the collection looks stunning! I can’t verify prices on any of the items as the site never lists them. Sadly, the entire collection is available within Europe only (Sweden, Germany, Etc…) so if you’re wanting it you’ll have to arrange for a CP on MUA or a cosmetic forum. I do think it’s well worth hunting out as it looks quite lovely. You may just see a review of this from the Muse shortly as I do see a few items that have caught my fancy!
Ok so check it.
Avon has released a brand new lipstick entitled Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick which contains shimmering gold flecks!
The price is $4.99 USD each!
Likey some more!
I know, I know you must have noticed by now that I’m suddenly Avon’s biggest cheerleader but I honestly can’t help myself as they have introduced some sincerely lovely items lately that are pretty high quality plus inexpensive!
I’m highly interested in trying out the new Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick as hey, it has gold in it…do I need any other excuse to want it?
I seen at least 6 shades I wanted and at the price I can totally afford to nab ‘em all if I so want! They even have a shade entitled 24K…well hello gorgeous! I mainly have my eye on Golden Wine which looks simply stunning. Click to check out the luscious shades!
Hopefully I’ll bring a review to you shortly on these!
Tried ‘em already?

The Bourjois Paris Japanese portal has been updated with the Holiday Collection which will be debuting on November 27th.
I think the collection is being released within Europe and Asia obviously but not within the US sadly.
It includes three shades of Bourjois Paris Liner Glitter Fizz, four shades of Bourjois Paris Eye shadows which appear to have a a healthy dose of shimmer in the formula, and a gorgeous pendant with lip gloss.
OooOoooo pretty shimmers!
The liners are 1,575 yen each, the shadows are 1,990 yen each, and the gloss pendant is 2,625 yen. The prices are considerably higher and I’m guessing you’ll find these in your local Boots (if you live across the pond that is) for a tiny bit less.
The entire line up looks lovely and I think I’d like to try out a liner, some of the shadows, and of course I want the pendant! Hopefully I’ll have a review of the new items shortly! I’ll also be bringing you a review of the new Bourjois Paris Liner Effect Mascara and the Bourjois Paris New Brush Foundation shortly!
What do you think of the new Bourjois Paris Holiday Collection 2008?
Wish it was making an appearance with the US?

The Muse is all about Chanel today! She was saving this post for a rainy day but she’s feeling rather generous so today she’ll bring you a review of Chanel Poudre Precieuse aka Chanel Gold Highlighting Powder aka holy cow this is expensive and so worth it!
Yes indeed the Muse skipped down to Nordie’s a few weeks ago and purchased Chanel Gold Highlighting Powder for $75 USD…….I can hear the cries of agony, the sighs of pain, the shouts of “but what about tightening your belt Muse! The economy is at war with itself!”.
Yes, yes I know the price is pretty high but I dare you…I double dog dare you to head into Nordie’s…look at the powder…and deny yourself. Go on do it. I’ll wait here until you get back…..bet you’ll be carrying a shopping bag with your Chanel Gold Highlighting Powder tucked up inside when you do get back!
To justify the cost we should all remind ourselves that this is a huge old pot of delicious, sparkling, shimmering, ridiculously luscious gold powder. Am I tempting you yet? This is a large jar so it’s not as if you’re paying $75 USD for a dinky little jar of gold powder…..there’s enough gold powder inside to last you a few decades if not more…..see? I’m justifying why you should be dishing out your $75 bucks for this!
On top of being some of these most gorgeous gold powder I’ve ever laid eyes on, it also happens to multitask as a face, eye, and body powder! For my FOTD I used Chanel Poudre Precieuse Gold Highlighting Powder on my eyes, my cheeks, and I sprinkled a tiny bit on my lashes when they were still wet with mascara for a bit of a golden gleam!
The powder is silky smooth and beautifully pigmented. You can build color up for an intense sparkling effect or a very subtle golden glow, the choice of how much to use is entirely up to you. This comes with a large silky brush that fits the contours of my cheeks perfect and allows for evenly distributing the powder across my face and if I’m using it on my body the extra large brush allows me to sweep it on evenly for a perfect golden glow!
Do you need it? Yes. I’m passionate about gold powders and eye shadows and honestly this is some of the best I’ve come across in all my year’s of collection cosmetics! The gold sparkle is simply divine and allows for a sophisticated sparkle or a really vibrant burst of gold! Who doesn’t want a bit of golden sparkle during the Holiday season? Is it worth the price? Yes, for sure considering how large a jar you’ll be getting and how much product is inside plus it’s ability to multitask as a body, cheek, hair, eye, etc…product makes the $75 USD price tag very worth it.
All in all Chanel Poudre Precieuse Gold Highlighting Powder is on my Holiday Collection Favorite’s List and I’m happily Muse Approving it for purchase! If you’ve been denying yourself all season long now is a great time indulge in a gorgeous powder to make yourself beautiful and more importantly, sparkly for the Holidays!
As I mentioned above for my look below I used the powder as an eyeshadow, some on my cheeks, and a bit sprinkled on my lashes!

Majolica Majorca has updated it’s website with it’s new Holiday story, I Am Gorgeous. CLICK! The only site updated is the main Japanese portal as the official street date for the collection is the 21st and taking into consideration at the moment it’s the 21st already in Japan, it’s pretty logical the site has been updated accordingly! When other Asian countries will get the release is beyond this Muse but I’m sure it’ll shortly be available within Singapore, Taiwan, Etc…and followed up a few months down the line in other locations (aside from the US where we get NONE of the good stuff SIGH! RANT!).
I’m very excited about this collection although that’s not saying much as I’m always excited when Majolica Majorca updates it’s site. The Holiday Collection does look interesting to say the least and I’ll be partaking of everything released with it!
I think the star of the show are the new Majolumina Powder in Puffs. I’m normally not a fan of powders that are in the puff already but I am very curious about these and will be purchasing both as the price of 1,300 yen or so is truly a bargain!
Although I’m not the biggest fan of Majolica Majorca Gorgeous Wing Mascara I will be purchasing the new version released with the I Am Gorgeous Collection. The color is a orangy-bronze-gold brown which looks very nice!
And finally two new Majolook palettes! Yay! I’m looking forward to these! Again, not a big fan of the base cream shade but the trio of powder shades looks simply amazing so, I for one, am very happy about the return of Majolook and glad they didn’t do more Trick On Palettes for this reason! Honestly, BR788 looks very similar to a palette I already have but I’m all for getting this anyway!
All in all it looks like a very promising selection of items. They extended the line a tiny bit compared with Holiday 2007 as this year we are getting two powders, two palettes, and a mascara where as last year it was one powder, two palettes, and a mascara. Of course, the Muse is on board and will review this all for you shortly!
The site is very, very lagged at the moment so I recommend checking back later tonight or tomorrow morning to see the updates! The Muse is looking forward to the Singaporean update so I can read the story in English! Once you “find” all the items you’ll have a chance to download the special screen saver! Do grab it as it’s rather cute!
How about you?
Loving the new palettes?
