MAC SugarSweet Collection: Dear Cupcake and Red Velvet

MAC+SugarSweet

I was working from home Friday since I purchased a TV and was waiting on it to be delivered so I didn’t really put much effort into my FOTD. I ended up fiddling around a bit with MAC Eyeshadow in Dear Cupcake and MAC Shadestick in Red Velvet for my look below. I really like how well these work together to create a nice popping pink look! I liked the look so much I didn’t bother removing it for when I went out later that night as it wore amazingly well all evening without creasing or fading up. Great shade combo.

Check below for the look I created using both!

I used a quickie swipe of MAC Shadestick in Red Velvet and MAC Eyeshadow in Dear Cupcake on top. The Shadestick allowed the eyeshadow to last ll day and also made it a more intense color of pink! Quite nice. I used a simple shimmering white on my highbrow to highlight the whole look. It’s not really anything special as I rushed a fair bit while doing it but I must say Dear Cupcake goes so very well when combo’ed with Red Velvet!

Sneak Peeks: Spring 2009 and Summer 2009 Shu Uemura Collections

Hey guys!

Busy Monday for the Muse today! How was your weekend? It’s a gorgeous but brisk day in New York today, supposedly it’s going down to 16 degrees tonight…umm so much for Spring weather!

Even though the weather outside is frightful I can tantalize you with news of Shu Uemura Collections releasing over the new few months.

shu

Check it out below!

shu+uemura+Cream+Eye+Shadow

Loving these! Available now, brand new Shu Uemura Cream Eye Shadows available in nine shades for $30 USD each. The waterproof formula comes in matte and pearl finishes. The formula supposedly lasts for hours without creasing or fading for all day, long wear.

Colors available are:

  • Black
  • Beige
  • Brown
  • Light Green
  • Sand Brown
  • White
  • Light Blue
  • Pink Taupe

These looks fab but I was a little shocked at the $30 price tag….seems a little bit much? But I have complete faith in Shu and I think they might be something special! We shall see! Looking forward to having a swatch and trying ‘em out for myself.

Shu+Uemura+Spot+Brightner

Now this I’m all over! You know how much I adore concealer of any kind! This is $45 USD and available in March. This can be used for precise application on age spots, acne scars, and dark circles.

Likey! Anything to cure my dark circles I’m all over and I like the idea of using it everywhere on my face not only under my eyes.

Here’s some sneak peeks of what will be coming soon from Shu Uemura this upcoming Spring and Summer, check it!

Coming in April, Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Pink Collection which will include lipsticks and glosses made from Pink Hybrid Pigment, one of the purest pink pigments ever discovered. Oooooo likey pink for the Spring, this sounds interesting!

In May Shu Uemura Painting Gel Liners will be released in nine shades. I’d love to see how these measure up to my HG liner, Bobbi Brown Gel Liner!

May also brings the release of Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse Shimmer which is a light weight mousse primer to even skin tone, tighten pores, and create a flawless, even finish for makeup.

In June we can partake of a new Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Bar themed as Lashes in Nature. I’m looking forward to seeing these. The collection is designed by Shu’s atelier team including celebrity artist and Shu Uemura artistic director Gina Brooke.

Overall, we have plenty to look forward to from Shu this Spring and Summer! I’m particularly eager to try the new cream shadows and spot brightener.

How about you?

Kenzo Cleansing Ice Jelly

kenzo

Summer is on the way…well actually it feels like it’s here already the past few days! The Muse wants herself some Kenzo Cleansing Ice Jelly to keep her skin nice and cool for the warmer days ahead.

Kenzo Cleansing Ice Jelly turns into a soft, watery cleanser upon contact with your skin. It has a unique jelly texture that even removes waterproof makeup! Oooo likey! Cooling and removers waterproof makeup? I could deal with that.

This gentle cleanser whisks away makeup while it tones your face. Scented with ginger flower it’s a spicy, invigorating scented cleanser!

Kenzo embraces the chill this Summer with not only this cleanser but also a cooling eye cream and a cooling moisturizer. The Muse is currently having a test drive with Kenzo Ice-Cold Eye Cream and will bring you a review of it shortly with her eye cream round up.

Brrr all this cooling skincare makes me yearn for the warmth of Summer. I’m adding this cleanser to my wish list!

Kenzo Cleansing Ice Jelly will be available for purchase in April.

What do you think?

Love the idea of a cool (literally cool) skincare collection?

Tried Kenzo Cleansing Ice Jelly already?

Love it?

cats

You got the makeup now you need somewhere to store it all. I’m always looking for ways to organize my monster of a stash and The Container Store is one of the first places I hop to when I want to locate cute little draws, containers, bins, boxes, and trays for stashing away all my makeup goodies!

Jump ahead for a steal and a deal for your storage needs!

From now until April 13th you can score 25% Off your entire Container Store online order or in store purchase! Sweet deal right? I rarely see them offer a deal like this so the Muse is taking full advantage.

I’ve had my eye on a Bisley media cabinet for a while now to store away some of my shadows, glosses, etc…it’s so tiny and takes so little space but you can stash so much makeup in it! It’s still costly after the discount but it’s probably the best price I’ll find on a Bisley! I’m thinking of taking the plunge.

Steal yourself a beauty budget trio of Vintage Sister Lip Balms all housed in a cute little tin.

Vintage+Sister+Pucker+Up+Set+1
Vintage+Sister+Pucker+Up+Set+3Vintage+Sister+Pucker+Up+Set+4
Vintage+Sister+Pucker+Up+Set+26

If you’re more sour than sweet this set is sure to please!

$12 USD (plus a mere $1.85 USD for shipping) will get you three of Vintage Sister’s cult favorite lip balms all housed in a cute sliding tin. Each balm brings both the sour and the sweet!

The Muse is all for golden oldies which is why she’s been a big Vintage Sister fan for years now. Their uber cute balms bring back the childhood memories of cute lip balms I used to tote around with me when I was a mere girl. The set includes three flavors all of which are housed in retro style sliding tins. Slide the tin back to reveal a heavy moisturizing balm that’s dosed with plenty of of good taste or in this case plenty of sour to make your lips curl up in a puckering pout!

Vintage+Sister+Pucker+Up+Set+7
Vintage+Sister+Pucker+Up+Set+9Vintage+Sister+Pucker+Up+Set+25

The set includes Sour Cherry, Sour Lime, and Sour Pink Lemonade. Sour Cherry is a pink transparent balm that tastes and smells like the real thing. Plenty of cherry with just the right tart sweetness that’s sure to please. Sour Lime has plenty of lime flavor with a bit of a fizz a la 7up or Sprite but it also has that tart, sour kick! Sour Pink Lemonade isn’t too sour but has plenty of sweet sugary lemon that will remind you of a warm Summer day!

Vintage Sister balms have a hard texture but once warmed up they’ll glide onto lips and leave behind plenty of shine. They’ll heal up chapped lips and keep lips moist all while tasting and smelling delicious!

Vintage Sister Puck Up Lip Balm Set is a personal favorite of mine and a great beauty budget pick!

Loves it and Muse Approves it for purchase!
