IsaDora Summer 2009: IsaDora Bronzing Trend

Although the Muse is anything but a sun goddess she can’t help herself from falling helplessly in love and lust with the IsaDora early Summer release, IsaDora Bronzing Trend.

The Muse is loving the beautiful lips and eyes in this promo image. The sun kissed, bronzy lips are gorgeous and the seductive bronzes and golds on the eyes is truly a stunning look for Summer! These are the days I don’t mind all that tanned skin so much as it looks so yummy for the warm weather!

All of the details for the items releasing are in the promo image below:

The Muse is on board with that shadow palette, blushing bronzer, and gorgeous shade of lipgloss!

Likey!

IsaDora Bronzing Trend could get me on board with a tan yet! One never knows when presented with a collection like this.

IsaDora Summer Collection 2009: IsaDora Eye Brow Lift & Define Review

Oh hai super cheap light and bright for my eyes!

IsaDora+Summer+2009+1

IsaDora Eye Brow Lift & Define is a dual ended pencil that multitasks the job of defining and filling brows and highlighting them. One end of the pencil has a dark brown brown filler whole the other has a soft matte pink highlighter on the other end.

My brows are full already that I’m not making as much use out of the filler as I should but I am seriously in lust with the highlighter side of the pencil. It’s kinda a cheaper version of Benefit Lemon Aid. It works great at simply highlighting the upper brow area, giving eyes an arch and illusion of a lift. Or use it all over your eye to mattify it (particularly great if you have oily lids) and waken up your eyes. It’s ideal as a prep and prime for eyes and acts as a concealer for your lid area. My lids tend to be a bit red and dull unless I use a yellow base on them prior to applying shadow so this is ideal as a little pick me up for my lids. Even though it’s a pale pink shade it still manages to freshen up my lids and make me look wide awake and fresh. Likey! At $13 USD it’s a rather nice little steal and deal.

Who might like this:

  • Anyone who has oily lids and wants to mattify them prior to shadow to prevent creasing and fading.
  • Those who need to fill in brows for a fuller look!
  • Anyone who has a touch of sagging around the eye area and desires a lifted look.
  • Those who need a wake up call for their eyes!

All in all I really liked the price on this and can def see myself purchasing again in the future. I like the convenience of a dual product but I’d actually like to see them do the highlighter separately as I made more use of it.

You can purchase IsaDora at Amazon and Cosmetic Mall.

Summer Collections 2009: Smashbox Untamed Summer Collection Rawrrrrrr!

smashbox+untamed+summer+2009


You in the jungle baby! We got fun and games….oh and Smashbox makeup too!

Amp it up with a bit of the jungle this hot Summer with the new Smashbox Untamed Summer Collection. Not your traditional Summer release, Smashbox focuses on a smoky, dramatic look for Summer with olive greens, shimmering brown and beige and combines it with tanned brown skin for pop.

Untamed Lip Gloss for a sexy, fierce bite of color in two shades, Flesh and Raw!


Untamed Creamy Cheek Color adds a hint of healthy glow to cheeks and face!


Untamed Waterproof Shadow Liner Trio contains two contrasting shades of shadow for a dramatic smoked out look with a matching waterproof liner! Available in Savage and Exotic.


And finally Untamed Double-Ended Eye Brightener brightens eyes and adds highlight!

Rawrrrr! Smashbox Untamed is shaping up to be something special. I particularly love the glosses and the trio! Looks like a nice evening out makeup to me and should compliment a tan if you’re into that sort of thing (although we know the Muse is not!).

Loves it?

Leaves it?

Urban Decay Summer Collection 2009

Although small the Urban Decay Summer Collection has me drooling already! I can barely wait to get my hands on a few of the pieces being released. The Muse is always feeling the love for a little UD.

Urban+Decay+Summer+2009

Slap me happy talking about Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Shimmer Body Lotion. Oh stop the press. How I love thee Midnight Cowboy! You grace my eyes and my lips and now my legs? my shoulders? my arms? Oh you’re perfect. Come to mama!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+3

This brand new lightweight moisturizing body lotion has a subtle golden shimmer to make you sparkly and sexy! Ride ‘em cowboy! 100% Paraben-Free dontcha know! Come out and play with the Muse now won’t you!

Although I possibly have all the shadows in the new Urban Decay Get Baked Eye Kit it doesn’t stop me from wanting it anyway. This limited edition palette contains Twice Baked, Half Baked, Baked, and Flipside in a super-slim palette for glamming up your look on the go and get you a bit baked if you so please. If you’re feeling like sinning too while you’re getting baked Urban Decay was nice enough to include some of the new Urban Decay Potion Primer in Sin to get you started. And complete it all with a Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon…it simply gets better and better…booze, sin, and getting baked? Lord, we are so COVERED for Summer! Loves ya UD!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+5

Possibly my favorite piece in the collection I like that they included all the baked shadows and a stunning ocean green to go along with it. It’s sort of a vampy, funky Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand palette for the hipper girl. Loves it!

Tis the Summer so we need some waterproof mascara now don’t we? Check out Urban Decay Big Fatty Waterproof addition to get you through those long days at the beach and in the pool. Won’t smear, won’t fade, won’t crack, stays where you put it until you want to take it off. Good bye raccoon eyes and hello Summer lashes!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+1

Longer, stronger, curlier, and thicker. Get it all with Urban Decay Skyscraper Mascara! This new mascara nourishes lashes for longer, stronger, feather soft lashes with a tube formula to get your lashes from wow to WOW!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+2

And finally one new shade in the Urban Decay Big Fatty Colored Mascara. Welcome Flipside to the collection! Perfect for pairing up with your new Urban Decay Get Baked Eye Kit! Yums!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+4

All in all I’d say Urban Decay has a nice Summer Collection coming at us! The collection is live on Sephora and is also available now from www.urbandecay.com

If the Muse was you, she’d RACE over to UD and grab it as they are currently having their 30% Friends and Family Event! Oooo la la! Savings and new makeup!

What do you think?

Loves it?
