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.

Jump for it.

Beauty Battle: MAC Lipglass Versus Korres Cherry Lipgloss Versus Stila Lipglaze

Beauty Battle Lipgloss Edition 2

The Muse normally doesn’t do battle between three different products but today is a little bit of a special day.   I’ve decided to face off MAC Lipglass against Stila Lipglaze and added in some Korres Cherry Lipgloss for the ride!

The Muse happens to love all three equally but one has to be the gloss that rules them all.  There is only one winner in this beauty battle of the glosses.

Which will it be?

Jump ahead to take on this beauty battle!
