Tarte Holiday Collection 2009: Tarte Crown Jewels LipGloss Gift Set Review and Swatches

Ok, let me so share with you a Musey Christmas story.  When I was little one item I could always look forward to when I was a little Muse would be those Lifesaver Christmas Books.

Please tell me I have a few older readers that remember these?

lifesavers

Basically it came with a life time supply of LifeSavers Candies (8 rolls but it seemed like a life time supply to me when I was a kid) in a little book style packaging.   I’ll bore you no more but the moral of the story is the new Tarte Crown Jewels Lipgloss Set kinda reminds me of that days of old packaging from Lifesavers when I was an ickle baby.

Product Musings: MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow Blue Sorcery Review and Swatches

There is something so magical about MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Blue Sorcery.

Believe it or not I’ve been avoiding the MAC counter like the plague since the release of the MAC Holiday Collection 2009. Oh I know MAC and MAC knows me. It’s likely I’ll haul tons of Holiday like it’s going out business if I’m not careful that’s why I’ve been biding my time carefully for the big day I do finally head to counter. Fact is I am somewhat off the jet plane I used to be on where I was rushing to MAC as soon as a collection released. I’m calmer now, a little less hyped, more level headed about my purchases….as its probably evident I have WAY too much MAC.

But today I can Muse a little with you about MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow Blue Sorcery. Wanna join in?

Perfect, Inexpensive Gift: Sonia Kashuk Twist of Fate Brush Set Review

I know you’re all very, very excited about the release of the Sonia Kashuk Holiday Collection 2009 as I got dozens of e-mails requesting a review and asking when it’ll be in stores.

Here’s the deets.

I traveled through Target late Sunday night to pick up some last minute party stuff for Halloween and of course I hit up the makeup section. As of yet it hasn’t been updated with Holiday and as of last look it was displayed on Target’s site as having a 3-4 week wait prior to shipping. Good news is it’s available for shipping on Target when I checked today and a reader even said she got her stuff in the mail already plus you can get free shipping with your $50 purchase (don’t forget to shop around for coupons as Target has 10% ones hanging around), bad news is as of yet it’s not available in store from what I’ve seen but have no fear I imagine that situation will be redeemed very, very shortly.

Even better news is I have an early preview of the collection and I’m hear to say wow…elegant and inexpensive, unheard of right? But indeed Sonia managed to combine budget friendly options plus a beautiful air of elegance to each piece.

For my first review of the collection I’ll be showing you the brand new Sonia Kashuk Twist of Fate Brush Set.
