Stila Loves Barbie Collection

That crazy chick Barbie not only loves MAC but now she loves Stila too! Who can blame her right? The Muse hearts Stila herself. MAC may have done Barbie already but the Muse couldn’t be more excited that Stila is now bringing us their of version a Barbie Collection!

I’m dancing in circles over the the launch of Barbie Loves Stila which is making a guest starring pre-launch appearance at Sephora starting January 14th, 2009. Mark your calendars ladies as the release is highly anticipated and each canister is numbered and will not be produced more than 10,000 times per a set. This make the collection a collector’s item and the lower the number of your can, the more valuable the set. I don’t care much about the number of my can I just want me some Barbie and Stila makeup and forget the rest! w00t!

Jump ahead to view more pictures of these limited edition Stila Barbie Cans.

A long time ago in a land far, far away the Muse used to collect Stila cans. Lord knows I can’t recall the last time Stila has put out a paint can and now a Barbie LE one? I’m on the case! I’ll take 5. k. Thanks.

The Barbie Loves Stila Collection consists of four separate gift sets and one brand new Stila Barbie Talking Palette Eye Shadow Quad. Likey.

So tell the Muse…

Are you a foxy barbie? Maybe a jewel one? A fun, loving Malibu Barbie? How about a ponytail one?

The Muse thinks she’s a jewel one, a ponytail one, a foxy one, and a malibu one…groan my poor credit card! They are $40 USD so maybe I can afford one of each?

Which set are you loving?

Tell the Muse!

Remember the sets are available from Sephora.com exclusively and Sephora’s 5th Avenue location in New York plus International Sephoras.

Spring Collection 2009: Too Faced Lock Down Cream Eye Shadow

The Muse thinks that the order of business this Spring appears to be cream shadows. They sure are popping up everywhere aren’t they?

too+faced+low+down

Urban Decay has an extensive list of cream shadows to choose from with their Spring Collection and Lancome is also releasing a new cream shadow but today what has the Muse’s interest is Too Faced Lock Down Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow.

The Muse believes that her lovely friend, Pursebuzz, was the brains behind the concept of Too Faced Low Down Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow. A few months ago Pursebuzz was in her laboratory and came up with the idea to combine Too Faced Shadow Insurance with a bit of pigment to create a colored shadow base….

And whatta ya know..we now have Too Faced Low Down Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow which indeed has a base of Too Faced Eye Insurance Primer! This indeed looks promising however it’s only available in four shades so far which disappointed the Muse who really likes variety but hey it’s a start!

What do you think?

Which are you lemming more…Too Faced Lock Down or Urban Decay Cream Shadows?

Tell the Muse!

MAC SugarSweet Collection

The mighty gods (or should I say girls?) of Specktra are dishing on the new MAC SugarSweet Collection and boy does it have the Muse hyper!

mac+sugarsweet

With names like Cakeshop and Butternutty can you blame me?

Not much is known about the collection so far but they do have images up of three new MAC Shadesticks being released entitled Butternutty, Red Velvet, and Cakeshop. The Muse wants ‘em for the name alone! Loves it.

Looking at the swatches this actually makes me want to hold off on purchasing Shu’s new Spring Collection, Mirage as this collection looks like it’s going to be loaded with beautiful shades of pastels with hints of shimmer.

Lavshuca Spring Collection 2009

Kanebo’s main portal has been updated with the Lavshuca Spring Collection for 2009. Although the Lavshuca main site has yet to reflect these changes we can at least get a bit of a sneak peek at what Lavshuca has to offer for Spring!

lavshuca+spring+2009

Sometimes the Muse wonders if she should be grateful or saddened over the fact that Lavshuca has hit an all time low in regards to repetition. The new eye palettes are simply the same o’, same o’ item that keeps popping up in a new design. Your Muse longs for the days when Lavshuca was keen on introducing aquas and bright pinks as opposed to the new standard of brown, brown, a bit of pink and brown, and more brown.

Sigh.


About the only color that appeals at the moment is the GN-1 variation which I don’t believe I’ve seen from Lavshuca as of yet. Considering my grave love affair with KATE Glamtrick GN1 and the Visee Glam Hunt palette in the same color selection I do so wonder if I really need to add this to my stash? But ado it calls to me so try it I must!

lavshuca+grade+eye+gn1

As we already seen with past releases, Lavshuca is fully embracing it’s new aubergine packaging and slowly phasing out anything and everything that carried the old style packaging. The latest item to take the hit is the Lavshuca loose powder which now comes with a round aubergine screw top and about zero of the fanfare and beauty of the old style packaging. I’m somewhat disappointed as I love my girlish packaging from the old power…le sigh…..I may indulge in the new powder out of curiosity since it appears to be a new formulation.


lavshuca+powder+old

We also have two new mascaras to look forward although I can safely skip both as I’m not a huge fan of Lavshuca mascara plus I have a few on my hit list already for Spring so these are just a filler I really don’t need. It’s rare they release mascara so it may be something you’ll be wanting to jump on board with!

lavshuca+mascara

I enjoyed the Lavshuca Foundation released this Fall immensely so I was excited to see a new base that’s matching with the packaging of my foundation! Weee! I want to try out the moist version and see how it is!


There are also some lippies and I believe a concealer but again all safely off my wish list! At the moment one palette, the base, and possibly the powder is looking good to me but I have to see a few more collections on my list and budget out what Spring will cost prior to deciding on these as they aren’t top priority for me at the moment but we shall see as I do feel a little twinge of temptation for the GN-1 palette!

How about you?

As disappointed as the Muse?

Love the collection?

Not so much?

Tell the Muse!
