The Body Shop Fall Collection 2009: The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents Review and Swatches

The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents is available now in store and online. The Body Shop went a little warm this year and a little bold with their new Fall line up. I was quite delighted to see a mix of Fall friendly shades thrown together with some very vibrant, popping shades of green, blue, and lilac. Quite an interesting collection if you’re a friendly fan of color.

In honor of their new Fall Collection, The Body Shop is featuring new haul videos daily from youTubers who review, discuss, and even do tutorials using the collection. You can hop on over to The Body Shop Blog and enjoy a new video daily to see who’s loving all over the collection and what sort of looks they created. The Muse did a very brief video on her MuseTV channel over on youTube however she doesn’t particularly excel at video creating which is why she is following up that review with a post here on Musings.

Jump ahead for my review of The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents.

Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun Review

I’m keeping my Summer glow together with a little bit of Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun. Never again will I hate bronzers after using this little bronzer….errr…maybe I should say huge as the packaging is big. The excitement and delight of bronzer all comes together when I whip out my fancy box of Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun.

I’m one smitten kitten with this kawaii packaging and adorable puff for application.

Check it after the jump!

Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara Review

smashbox1

Dude, remember that kid from A Christmas Story? Come on, who doesn’t traditionally (and compulsively) watch A Christmas Story every year. I mean it wouldn’t be Christmas without it right?

But anyway…..remember the catch line? Of course you do.

“You’ll shoot your eye out!”

This is so the problem with Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara. In this case I’m not going to shoot my eye out but I’m going to poke my eye out if I’m not careful.

Jump for the review.

As Seen by the Muse: Sephora Blockbuster Palette 2009

As Seen by the Muse 1

Yes, well, we all know I’m not too terribly keen on Sephora palettes….sorry just can’t get on board with ‘em. But as seen by this Muse the new Sephora Blockbuster Palette for 2009 on the Sephora Blog. The Muse was thinking you you might like to see it for yourself.

Sephora won the Allure Best All Over Palette Award for it and promises its bigger and badder than prior releases (still looks like a bunch of cheap makeup to me, love ya Sephora just don’t love your palettes).

Looks pretty loaded from these photos plus they included a slew of eye liners too….or at least that’s what those pencils look like. I’m looking forward to seeing the actual design of the compact itself which will probably play an important role in this year’s Holiday theme.

What do you think?
