Lavshuca Star Decoration Eyes GN1 BR-1 Review, Photos, Swatches

Lavshuca didn’t go the coffret route this year for the Holidays which was a bit disappointing. Nor did they go for a special palette release. They did however release a brand new selection of eyeshadow palettes. This is an interesting release for the brand considering they reserve palette releases for the Spring and only release a special palette or two or a coffret for the Holidays.

Lavshuca is a drugstore brand that can be purchased in Japan. Unlike findings in a US drugstore, Japanese drugstore makeup is of high quality, incredibly pigmented, and just stunning, packaging wise.

Let’s have a look!

the Muse’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways: Day 3 A Most Coveted Gift!

giveaways

Morning loves.

I just closed off my Day 1 Giveaway and will be alerting the winners shortly. Sorry, I’ve been a little swamped and out every night for the past several weeks so I’m behind on just about everything that needs doing on Musings which is why the giveaway ran a little over but hey it gave those who missed the chance to enter, their chance!

Day 2 is in effect and you can enter it here if you haven’t already.

I wanted to take a chance to say thank you for all your lovely comments! I really can’t answer each one individually, I apologize, but I am reading them and can’t tell you how much I appreciate them all, thank you!

I’m hopeful you’re reading the rules and regulations on each giveaway as I notice reader’s who comment saying they wish they had something in their country when I do a review and proceeding to comment on a giveaway which ships within the US only. So please do read the rules on each giveaway to be sure that I am shipping within your country.

Each giveaway runs the entire month (aside from Day 1) and random winner(s) will be alerted via e-mail at the end of each.

Now that’s the boring stuff.

One with today’s giveaway!

Hard Candy Pop Up Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hard Candy Pop Up Palette 1

After some serious digging I finally located the Hard Candy Pop Up Palette. Who wouldn’t want it? The promise of cute little pots of Hard Candy Baked Eyeshadow in a pop up design palette a la Urban Decay Book of Shadows with a $15 sweet as honey price tag. It seemed like a great option to feature on Musings as a budget beauty gift or just because we are all bloody fine beauty junkies that need the latest, greatest fix eh?

And….

Wow.

Wait until you hear this!

Shu Uemura Lip Duo & Tint Love Apricot Harmony Pink Review, Swatches, Photos

Shu Uemura Lip Duo Tint Love Apricot Harmony Pink 13

I couldn’t resist the new Shu Uemura Lip Duo & Tints from the Shu Uemura Takano Abracadabra Fantasy Collection for Holiday 2010. I admit I had my doubts they wouldn’t work because my lips are pigmented plus they just appeared very nude (I can’t do nudes) but I wanted to try them out anyway since the promo images really made them look darling.

Did they work?
