Clarins Holiday Collection 2009: Clarins Palazzo d’Oro Collection

Clarins Palazzo dOro Collection 11

The Muse heard about Clarins Holiday oh…mmm..’bout a month or so ago. My Clarins rep was ever so happy to share the deets about Clarins Holiday 2009 when I kindly asked and I proceeded to drool all over the place. Now at the time I just had a nice little write up about what was coming out but a few days ago I saw the pictures and my jaw dropped.

Clarins Palazzo d’Oro Collection is everything I love about a holiday collection with a heavy emphasis on sparkling golds for a super glamorous look.

Check it after the jump and be prepared to be wowed!

The Muse Thinks Pink: Smashbox Pout Lipstick for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Giveaway

As you know this month I am all about thinking pink!   I’m trying quite hard to raise both awareness and money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation which is my charity of choice for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.   So far I’ve raised $21 and have plans of donating $200 of my own personal funds to the cause.  I was originally doing a Comment 4 the Cure post which would donate a dollar each time someone posted a comment but I fear everyone got somewhat wrapped up in the giveaway I was doing and forgot to put a comment in that post.   My donation of $200 still remains firm if you do or do not comment but I hope you will consider placing a comment in that post.

To those who have taken a minute out and donated a $1 or more thank you VERY much.  I greatly appreciate it and it’s going to a good cause.

All the giveaways I’m doing this month will run until October 31 and a winner will be randomly selected from those who entered and alerted via email.

Today I’m thinking pink with the limited edition Smashbox Pout Lipstick which is a beautiful way that Smashbox is giving back.   Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Pout will raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.   With each purchase of this lipstick a 40% portion of the proceeds will be donated to Komen Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The lipstick is a baby doll pink shade which is quite mod.   It has a custom sleeve which was inspired by the Fashion for the Cure benefit.  The color is highly sought after currently and quite surprisingly talked about on all the makeup forums I visit.

The Muse has teamed up with Smashbox to giveaway one Pout Lipstick to a lucky winner.  In order to enter you can do a few things.

Beauty News: E.L.F. Cosmetics At Target

elf target

Beauty news of the day is E.L.F. Cosmetics will soon be available at your local Target.  Interesting news dontcha think?

Starting November 1st E.L.F. Cosmetics will be available at Target on a 3 1/2 foot end cap in the cosmetics section.  The items will be a feature of $1, $3, $5, and $10 E.L.F. offerings in a slick black packaging.

Most of the items available initially will be from the $1 E.L.F. Collection but Spring will feature an updated assortment from the E.L.F. Studio Collection.

I think it’s kinda cool as now you can actually see product rather than look at swatches on the Internet.  I’m a big supporter of online shopping but sometimes I do like to see a product in person before laying my money down.

Are you an E.L.F. fan?

Love the idea of shopping it at your local Target?

Tell the Muse!
