Stila Holiday 2009 Stila Smudge Pot Collection Review and Swatches

Yes, yes it’s early but Stila graces us with it’s Holiday Collection already.   Gotta  enjoy sharing the love of cool Holiday makeup two months before Christmas.

This year the Stila Holiday Collection 2009 graces us with a few gift sets.  As of yet I haven’t seen palettes but I’m not losing hope yet as Stila has a way of creeping up on us.  Plus we do have to give them some breathing room since they are rebuilding.

The good news is the gift sets are inexpensive as sin.  It’s alot of product packed into one place with a small price and even a To and From field if you’re giving instead of getting for yourself.

Jump ahead to enjoy swatches and a review of the Stila Smudge Collection.

Beauty on a Budget: EOS Lip Balm Review

Let me bring you back a little bit, Fall 2007 to be exact.  Lancome releases the Mystery Game and the Muse proceeds to flip out and find a new love of her life, the Lancome Baume Baiser.  Since that time I’ve been through three of these thanks to the Lancome Outlet in Atlantic City having them handy…..currently I’m on my last one and probably won’t get another unless I really look hard as the shop no longer has them.

Flash forward to present day and find the Muse slicking her lips with inexpensive, tasty EOS Lip Balm.   Hello dupe-tastic!   These smooth spheres are tasty, cheap as day old chips, and mimic that of my beloved Lancome Baume Baiser.

Thank Jebus for answering my prays.

All hail and rejoice ultra cool lip balm that’s inexpensive and readily available without the dreaded LE (Limited Edition) curse attached to it…oh and organic and good for you too.

IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody Review and Swatches

Oooooo chicas let me tell you.  It’s icy cold outside.   It’s been a weird few days in my little city as the weather is more Winter than Fall.   But we had a few warm Fall days around these parts and lord knows it’s my very fav time of the year.

I’m celebrating Fall with Isadora Bohemian Rhapsody today.   It’s a rather fab little collection that’s inexpensive and quite sitting with the season plus it carries the name of my very favorite song from Queen what more could a girl want?  Did I ever tell you about my Freddy Mercury obsession?  Wait…maybe we’ll skip that chat otherwise we’ll never get to the review.

What was I saying? Oh yes the IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody Collection!

Carol’s Daughter Princess Tiana Beauty Collection

Carols Daughter Princess Tiana Beauty Collection 1

The Muse is still very much a kid at heart which is why the new Carol’s Daughter Princess Tiana Beauty Collection is calling out to me. Last year Disney approached Carol’s Daughter to launch a hair and a bath line for their new movie, “The Princess and the Frog”. Today that dreams comes to life with The Princess Tiana Beauty Collection line.

The collection includes Beauty Within Shampoo ($10), Inner Shine Conditioner ($10), Dream big Hair Detangler ($10) and Sharing Means Caring Bubble Bath ($8).

The line is quite affordable and sweet for little ones in your life or in the Muse’s case she’s all about hauling it for herself.

What?

I like cute stuff, sue me.

Bourjois Paris Coup de Theatre Mascara Review

This morning the Muse is raking her brain trying to remember the first time she tried Bourjois Paris Corps Mascara. Gosh, it had to be ten years ago at least. Do you guys remember it? It was a dual mascara with a primer on one side and a mascara on the other. Actually at the time the entire idea and design was unique to anything anyone had out on the market.

Anyway….

Reason I’m taking my little trip down memory lane today is because I’ve been test driving the brand new Bourjois Paris Corps de Theatre 2 in 1 Mascara and loving all over it. For the longest time Bourjois was my go to brand for great mascara and it’s nice to see them release something new.
