NuBo Cosmetics

I’m pretty sure I’m too young to take full advantage of the new cosmetic line NuBo or at least I’d like to think so. Debuting at Harrods in November, NuBo claims to offer “cosmeceutical-strength formulations without controversial chemical ingredients, including parabens, petrochemicals and sodium lauryl sulfate”.

If you’re conscious of what goes onto your face I’m pretty sure the idea of a high street brand cosmetic that promises quality minus harmful ingredients is probably thrilling you to bits and pieces.

At the moment NuBo consists mostly of skincare and I’m unsure if they have plans to further the line into cosmetics. One product that did interest me, cosmetic wise, was the NuBo Voile.

The product is an invisible veil created to hide lines, correct skin tone, and create flawless skin. This contains Hyaluronic Acid to fill and plump fine lines while offering extra moisture.

Considering I don’t have fine lines as of yet on my face is it terribly vain to admit that I fancy the lilac packaging and that was what really got my attention? Although, if you experiencing fine lines on your face already this sounds like an absolute miracle.

NoBu does look quite interesting but unless you’re willing to pay high street prices (prices range from 30 all the way to a whooping 120) you may find that it’s something you can safely skip on. But hey I’m sure some of us have found staple products that we are willing to dish the cash out for and NoBu may contain some staple products that we all can’t live without.

The Muse may try to get her greedy hands on some NuBo Voile as all the pretty packaging is too difficult to resist.

Spring Collections 2009: Kiss Chocolat Collection

There isn’t any question in the world that I absolutely adored the Kiss Chocolatier Collection for Sprng 2008 so I was really thrilled when I heard that Kiss would be following up on the theme and releasing a new chocolate collection for Spring 2009.

Sadly, I wasn’t too excited once I actually got the chance to view the collection for myself.

The Kiss Chocolat Collection is quite small so it’s nothing to get too hyper about however I will say that I’m quite disappointed in the Kiss Dual Chocolat Eye Palettes released with the collection. Now the colors are absolutely fav and keeping with the chocolate strawberry theme however the main shade is a cream shadow. Although I’ve made piece with cream shadows I think it’s safe to say that these will probably be a mess to apply, lack pigmentation, plus the liner being a powder kinda makes them a tad on the boring side.

Le sigh!

The good news is that the Lip Chocolat Treatment looks quite good! Of course it’s strawberry chocolate scented and flavored…Muse likey! Last year I enjoyed the glosses released with the Chocolatier Collection immensely! The flavors were really true to life and they smelled so yummie! I’m looking forward to this lipgloss in a major way and I’ll definately be reviewing it soon!

Although the collection’s main focus item, the duos, are a sore disappointment I do think the gloss looks like a joy!

What do you think?

Love this collection?

Not so much?

Don’t these look lush!? And they aren’t too badly priced either at $18 USD per a pot! I wants them all! Well maybe not all but I def have my eye on the gold one! I haven’t really dove fully into the ck line but I have to say these caught my attention in a major way!

Loves it!

Yes, yes I know I spelled Klein wrong in my picture…your Muse isn’t perfect and she makes mistakes too…she’s also too lazy to correct it! Besides it adds a certain charm to the post don’t you agree?

What’s your take on these?

Want ‘em?

What are your favs from the ck Calvin Klein line?

Givenchy Spring Collection 2009

Givenchy always holds a special place in this Muse’s heart. The Givenchy Spring Collection 2009 sure does look interesting and I can see myself picking up at least one or two of the items they are offering up!

I’m such a little nit picker but as gorgeous as the items are don’t you think they are a tad warm for Spring? I’m more of the mind that lighter, breezier shades are more flattering come Spring. This looks a tad bit too Summery! Not that I’m complaining I firgure I can haul it and stash away until June! Love, love those red lippies!

What do you think?

Trash or Stash!?

The Body Shop Spring Collection 2009

I admit that I occasionally get tempted by the cosmetic offerings at The Body Shop although I do still stand by my right to say I find them vastly overpriced! Wince! It’s The Body Shop not Sephora after all right? But aside from that I have picked up quite a few pieces here and there that I have been quite pleased with and in all honesty some have even became staple products.

body+shop+spring+2009

The Body Shop Spring Collection definitely keeps in the theme of Spring with soft shades of pink that I’m sure you’ll fancy!

I have my eye on the darker of the two blushes that’s for sure but I think I can probably safely skip everything else!

What do you think?

Want any of this collection?

Skipping it in favor of something else?
