The Muse has fully embraced her “musey” personality for almost two years now on Musings of a Muse and it appears that Smashbox decided it was about time to tell the world how awesome the Muse truly is.
I’m almost but not quite positive that when Smashbox created it’s new Muse Collection they were thinking ALL about this Muse. Honestly who else could they have possibly been envisioning when going about the creative process of creating a Muse Collection right?
Read more about Smashbox Muse Collection after the jump….
The new Smashbox Muse Collection looks quite fun and funky but not completely what this Muse is all about however that does NOT stop me from wanting every single piece in the collection simply because it has my name…errr…I mean my alter ego’s name stamped all over it!
The collection consists of the following items:
Smashbox Muse Lip Paint $21 USD
Smashbox Muse Artist Eye Palette $48 USD
Smashbox Muse Cream Eyeliner Artist Pencil Set $36 USD
Smashbox Hybrid 2-in-1 Luminizing Primer $34 USD
It’s actually a pretty nice round up and I thought it was interesting that they included a pencil set as it’s abnormal to have sets such as this after the Holidays.
As you can see the Smashbox Muse Collection has a long way to go to be as uber fabulous and awesome as this Muse but it’ll pass. The Muse thinks she’ll take her chair and table and head to Sephora and the nearest Nordies and set up shop outside. As people purchase the collection the Muse will offer to autograph the boxes of the collection as who doesn’t want an autographed copy of a Muse Collection right?
Hmmm yes I believe I will do that….check for me at your local makeup counter soon!
If you’re want to be all Muse-like (but not as great as the Muse of course) you can head on over to Nordies and nab this collection now! It’s up and happily available for purchase.
More Steals and more Deals! Is your wallet feeling any lighter yet? Well brace yourself as Beauty Crunch has some ridiculously priced Stila on sale!
Beauty Crunch is hosting Stila’s Virtual Warehouse Sale this year and it’s some blockbuster pricing that the Muse sees! I know I need at least a few of the items that they have available!
More info after the jump on the sale!
As I mentioned above the prices are psychotic so if you’ve been holding out for a while or you have some extra cash stashed away that you got as a pressie this season, now would be a good time to get spending!
This is only a few of the items they have available! Tons more to choose from so best get over there before the news hits MUA and makeup forums! Everything is in stock now but who knows how long that will be! Happy Shopping!
Yes to Carrots is holding a little contest at the moment on it’s Facebook Group asking readers, “What do you say yes to?”
Last week the Muse said Yes to smoother, softer hands by using Yes to Carrots Pampering Hand and Nail Spa. She was thinking about it and she realized that when it comes to cosmetics she’s constantly saying YES, YES, YES! Hmmm it’s rare you hear no uttered from these lips when makeup is invovled! With all the sales going on lately it’s getting harder and harder to say nay!
Hmmmm the Muse came across some interesting sales on Sephora today! Seems Sephora is axing Pop Beauty and Vincent Longo from the line up and slashing prices on LE Holiday goodies across the line!
And here we are with another sale……
Nothing is sacred this year and virtually everything, including luxury gifts, are getting the axe and experiencing an abnormal price cut! A reader mentioned that MAC in the UK is even having a sale…makeup sale in Europe? Unheard of!
Sephora appears to be doing it’s normal house cleaning by placing Pop Beauty and Vincent Longo on sale however they are also slashing prices on many, many gift sets! This is highly unusual and leads me to believe that the items simply didn’t sell well this year and they have to get rid of them somehow. Right now it’s 7 pages give or take a few pages for items that were already on sale such as Bourjois Paris and Sugar Cosmetics however I’m seeing big name brands on the sale list such as Stila, Urban Decay, even Fresh!
I’m curious what will happen as Christmas comes nearer and in fact passes for that matter. I’m guessing we are in for some serious discounts after the Holiday. We’ve seen some great sales this season but I think we are in for some SERIOUS sales come the New Year! Who knows this year you may see them giving away items for free during the semi-annuals! At this rate we are all going to need extra storage to stash away our ridiculous hauls.
Here’s some items that Sephora has slashed and that the Muse suspects will be slashed even further after Christmas.
Obviously the recession is the root of all evil in the cosmetic world because it’s causing some serious temptation to splash out major bucks to haul all we can at these prices! Sheesh! The Muse is being good and not indulging but she can’t say these aren’t some nice steals and deals that are popping up lately!
Damn that Tom Jones! I’d fling my panties at him any day of the week!
Fact of the matter is it really is cold outside! The Muse just got home after fighting with traffic and idiotic New York drivers. But she’s safe and sound in her house now. At the moment it’s a stormin’ outside and 15 inches of snow is expected to land outside. The good news is it makes it feel more like Christmas but the bad news is that the Muse happens to be way too old to go outside and build a snowman! Darn.
View from the Muse’s makeup room!
But she really doesn’t have to forsake that snowman….Lush has a solution!
There isn’t anything in the world like a really hot bath when the chill of the winter is howling outside your window. Forsaking the outdoor snowman for an indoor one in my bath was the way to go today! Meet Lush Frothy the Snowman Bubble Bar:
Frothy creates mounds of soft, fluffy bubbles (hence his name…froth…..bubbles…get it?) in your bath while scenting your hair, body, and skin with a mix of coconut, licorice, and vanilla. He’s quite moisturizing and after stepping from the tub you’ll notice how soft and smooth he’s made your skin! The Muse thinks he’s rather cute as a stocking stuffer or a little topper on a gift.
The only sad thing about Frothy the Snowman is you have to crumble him up into little pieces to use him in your bath but once you get over mourning his broken little body you’ll be happy to step into your hot bathtub filled with lovely, scented bubbles to relax and de-stress!
Crumbled remains of Frothy waiting to melt away into masses of bubbles! He’s a holly jolly soul and welcome in my bathtub anytime of the year but sadly he told the Muse not to cry as he’s limited edition and will be gone after Christmas but he may be back again someday!
