MAC Little Darlings Product Photos and Swatches

Dontcha just love MAC Holiday?

Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside!

I’m REALLY loving MAC Little Darlings for Holiday 2008!

Last year, I didn’t take advantage of any of the sets introduced since I had so many of the items already offered and I was being a bit reserved with my purchases so I’d have plenty of money to feed my Japanese Holiday addiction!

I felt rather badly later since I missed out on the lip sets but many months passed and I was happy to haul those at my local CCO!

This year, however, I am taking full advantage of MAC Little Darlings and I’ll be quite the glutton with the interesting pieces releasing with these cute coffrets!

Although the piggie collections didn’t catch my eye (since I already have a majority of these in full size already) I do so highly recommend nabbing one or all since they are a super value for those of you who are new to MAC pigments! Each set includes five small vials of pigment (believe me that vial will last ages) for $29.50 USD. One thing I absolutely love about these sets is how interesting it is to see what colors they pair together! I noticed that Pink Mauved and Quietly, which I have in full sizes, make a great combo! I’d have never pair the two of these until I seen them in the cool pigment set!

This year there is a set of five warm pigments and five cool pigments each of which set contains a bit of MAC glitter as well so you can sparkle and shimmer your way through the holidays!

Although I won’t indulge in the pigments, I definately have my eye on the gloss selections! Yummie! These come packaged in lots of five for $29.50 USD as well please keep in mind these are mini size glosses, not full size however still a great deal none the less!

And finally MAC is releasing a Soft Sparkle Gift Set which includes five mini soft sparkle pencils! I have two of the colors of the five in the gift set so I’ll definately be indulging in this one as I want three shades I don’t have (nor have I ever heard of!). As with all the sets this too is $29.50 USD.

If you’re new to MAC you have to be excited about these little sets or if you’re an old school’er I’m sure you still feel the love for at least one or two of these kits!

The Muse has her eye on maybe one or two of the gloss sets and definately the Soft Sparkle pencils!

These will be available from MAC as of November 6th so keep your eyes peeled to your local MAC counter or the MAC website! I did swatches of the items I already have to help you decide if you absolutely have to have some of these!

How about you?

What are you hauling?

Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick

My little eye spies a new Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick at Nordies!

This brand new shimmer brick is entitled Copper Diamond and available for $40 USD exclusively at Nordstrom at the moment!

Although the packaging is brand new the Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick looks quite similiar to the limited edition gold version that I already have. This is one of those must see items in store before I decide if I need it as the resemblance to my Bobbi Brown Gold Shimmer Brick is uncanny!

Do I want it? Hells yes! But first the Muse must investigate further to see how similiar these two are!

Seen this?

Putting it on your wish list?

Prescriptives Holiday Collection 2008: AGLOW

image002

I’ve taken a look at the Prescriptives AGLOW champaign and I must say I’m duly impressed and eager to see it on counters!

Prescriptives Holiday Collection AGLOW will be available on counters and on the Prescriptives website in November, I’m happy see that Prescriptives is taking things slow and giving us room to enjoy the beautiful Fall season, I wish more companies would consider the same!

image006

I like the looks of virtually everything that’s available from this collection but I’m seriously lemming the Prescriptives Winter Reflections All-Over-Highlighter which is limited edition compact of soft, shimmering pearls to highlighting the face with shades of white, beige, and pink! You can use these on face or body which makes them a great multitasking product!

Prescriptives is also releasing two limited edition eye shadow quads in a Warm and Cool version. The Prescriptives Winter Reflections Eye Color Quad comes housed in a platinum mirror compact and contain four coordinating shimmering shades of color! I have my eye on the cool version but the warm version looks equally as nice!

Prescriptives Winter Reflections Eye Color Quad Warm

  • Chestnut (New & LE shade)
  • Brunette (New & LE Shade)
  • Suede (New & LE Shade)
  • Banana

Prescriptives Winter Reflections Eye Color Quad Cool

  • Oyster (New & LE Shade)
  • Twinkle (New & LE Shade)
  • Eclipse (New & LE Shade)
  • Shell

Prescriptives is also releasing a brand new Blush More or Less shade in Santa Fe Sun.

For lips Prescriptives has several limited edition shades of gloss and lipstick available in the following selections:

Prescriptives Coloruscope Lip Gloss (All Shades are LE)

  • Twinkling
  • Peachy
  • Rosy
  • Icy

Prescriptives Colourscope Lipcolor

  • Golden Quartz (LE)
  • True Bronze
  • Winter Rose (LE)
  • Wisteria

All in all I really like the looks of this collection and hopefully will nab some to review for you soon! I’m highly interesting in checking out the shimmering pearls for sure!

How about you?

Loving this collection?

Want any of it?

Isadora Holiday Collection 2008: IsaDora Diamond Ring with Gloss Review

The evil allure and temptation of IsaDora’s Holiday Collection got me good! I found myself captivated by the gorgeous IsaDora Diamond Ring with Gloss….I guess what they say is true…..Diamonds (and gloss too!) are a girl’s best friend!

I’m unsure if it was the sparkling Swarovski crystals or the gloss housed inside that captured my heart when I seen this glittering cocktail ring but I do know I’ll be sporting it happily through the season, in fact I’m wearing it today! Why wait for the Holidays!?

The IsaDora Diamond Ring is a quite a heavy piece of jewelry! Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a wimpy little ring with a cute gloss thrown it! Far from it! The piece has a sterling silver quality and is quite a fashionable piece of custom jewelry! I’m a sucker for jewelry so this totally appeals to that side of my nature. The ring is an oval style triangle decorated with Swarovski crystals and baring the IsaDora name sake on it’s side.

Wear it out for a bit of bling and slyly slip it open for gloss touch up on the go! The ring slides open to reveal a shimmering pink gloss to slick on lips on the fly!

As you can see it’s difficult to resist all that shine, sparkle, and glimmer! Pairing up elegant jewelry and lipgloss…..total perfection! The Muse likey!

The IsaDora Holiday Collection 2008 has wormed it’s way into my heart and I’ll be indulging in further items very shortly! Look out for my review on the yummie palette soon!
