Beauty News: ASOS $6 Flat Rate Shipping Deal

asos

The Muse shops ASOS way too much for her good health. This UK shop carries a variety of beauty brands not available in the US such as B Never (recent addition), Bourjois Paris, Lord and Berry, and many more!

Normal shipping costs from the site to the US is pretty high but the good news is now they have a flat rate shipping deal for $6 bucks to the US! w00t! Best news ever! I couldn’t be happier as I now I can stop asking friends in the UK to haul me goods from Bourjois Paris and the likes and just order them myself from the site for an extremely low airmail cost.

This will be ideal for any of you lemming the new Bourjois Paris Smoky Eye Palettes as you can easily score them with the shipping deal.

Yay!

Do you shop ASOS?

IsaDora Fall Collection 2009: IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody

IsaDora+Fall+Collection+2009+IsaDora+Bohemian+Rhapsody+3

IsaDora believes it’s evoking the 70′s with it’s new Bohemian Rhapsody Collection but the Muse just sees a warm, elegant look for the cooler weather ahead. Loving all over this look and must haves it now!

Take a peep after the jump!

I’m ever always slightly skeptical of combining browns and greens for some odd reason but I should know by now it simply works. The new IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody collection features the model wearing a combination of olive green and deep chocolate on her eyes which pops and screams Fall. It’s a beautiful cocktail of warm colors for a cooler season and I’m loving all over it. The collection is geared towards a more 70′s retro feel but I’m just seeing it as a very beautiful collection that has a certain warmth to it which I associate with Fall. Although traditionally olive greens and browns aren’t something to get too excited about as many collections release similar shades like these for Autumn, but I still can’t help but feel quite excited about this collection.

IsaDora+Fall+Collection+2009+IsaDora+Bohemian+Rhapsody+1

At the center of the collection is a brand new Isadora Eye Palette in Bohemian Rhapsody ($19.50) which is a range of warm shades of olive green, browns, and golds. I’m quite interested in picking up the palette and the IsaDora Chrome Lip Polish in Candied Apple and the IsaDora Perfect Moisture Lipstick in Russet as I’m loving the model’s lips in the promo images.

There are also several other offerings such as a liner pencil, nail polishes, and a bronzer to choose from but for me the eye palette and lip items were what stood out most.

Overall, I’m really loving the imagery of this collection and look forward to hauling it. I’ve also glimpsed IsaDora Holiday 2009 and must say it looks thrilling but more about that later.

This collection will be available for purchase from Cosmetic Mall as of 09/15 and Amazon.com soon after.

WANT IT: Lush Vanilla Scoop

Ahhh it’s still quite Summer and a scoop of vanilla is always in order. Indulge in a Lush Vanilla Scoop and snag a steal and a deal!

lush+vanilla+scoop

Scoop this scoop by taking the jump!

Lush UK Mail Order has a brand new set entitled Vanilla Scoop which is 39.95 and includes all of the following vanill-lish goodies!

  • Lush Vanilla Puff Dusting Powder
  • Vanillary Perfume
  • Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion
  • Vanilla Fountain Bath Bomb

The items come to 45 regularly so you’ll be saving about 5 on the purchase of the set.

Lush UK does ship to the states however since this contains the perfume I’m unsure if they will ship it. Lush used to ship perfumes abroad but they ran into a few probs with items breaking and the likes and didn’t do perfume shipping during forum parties so I’m unsure whether they do or do not as of now since many of my orders haven’t included perfumes as of late.

I’m going to attempt to purchase one of these as I haven’t tried the dusting powder as of yet and I’m out of lotion plus I can always use a stock up on the perfume and bath bomb. I’ll let you know how it goes.

It’s a rather nice little package of vanilla treats if you’re a lover.

Available now from Lush UK.

WANTS IT: Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II

Urban+Decay+Book+of+Shadows+Volume+II+1

You’d think after creating something so incredibly good like the Book of Shadows that Urban Decay didn’t have any tricks up it’s sleeves. Honestly, what could possibly top that incredible palette? I know when I got mine I was doing back flips across my foyer as it was too gorgeous for mere words.

Well….

Urban Decay decided to top that.

Jump ahead for the deets!

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume 2 this is where it’s at baby. If the original Urban Decay Book of Shadows was incredibly awesome this palette falls into the “oh my god” amazing category. With two 24/7 Eye Pencils, Primer Potion, and 8 brand new, limited edition shades of shadow exclusive to this palette obviously Urban Decay has topped the original Book of Shadows with a great new palette, WANT!

Urban+Decay+Book+of+Shadows+Volume+II+2

Inside you’ll find existing Urban Decay Eye Shadow favorites Sellout, Gunmetal, Ectasty, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside, and YDK.

But the real killer?

The new LE shades!

You’ll get AC/DC (deep eggplant shimmer), Nylon (champagne sparkler), Mushroom (taupey-gunmetal), Sphynx (pink sparkle/shimmer), Jinx (bright blue shimmer), Homegrown (bright green shimmer), Misdemeanor (deep teal sparkle), and Perversion (matte black).

The palette is covered in pearly white with a purple foil design! It flips open to reveal a generous mirror framed in exotic peacock feathers. Hiding behind the secret doors is a mini look book. Incredible! The Muse thinks the mini look book is probably one of the greatest things about the palette as it’s a full photo booklet containing photos of Urban Decay’s model, Daniela, using the palette in various looks. I’m always looking for inspiration when creating a look and this book will make it a snap!

Need I say more?

It’s been topped!

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II the Muse WANTS IT!

It’s available now for $48 at Urban Decay.

I know many of you have already begun asking for a review and swatches, I’m working on it and will bring it to you shortly!

Do share…

Are you wanting this?

Accessory Corner: Christian Siriano for Payless

Accessory

Now the Muse wouldn’t necessarily call having your own Payless Shoe Collection fierce. Payless and the fierce realm…well let’s say it’s like comparing apples with oranges.

Never you mind though, the accessory news of the hour is that the new Limited Edition Christian Siriano Shoe Collection has officially launched for Fall 2009 at a Paypless store near you!

Jump ahead for the details.

Honestly, none of the styles appeal to me as they are a tad too middle age crusty for this Muse but the price tag of $34.99-$49.99 does make it fashionably inexpensive couture.
