Spring Collections are a poppin’ ladies! It’s coming at you full force as all the beauty sites and counters are updated with the pretties for the upcoming Spring season! Today I bring you the tale of the Tarte Spring Collection for 2009.
DuWop isn’t the only one thinking about Anti-Aging foundations. Is this the latest craze? Tarte ReCreate Anti-Aging Foundation with Wrinkle Rewind will rid your face of wrinkles while giving a soft, flawless look.
A perfect swirl of color to add to cheeks and lips with the new Tarte: A Perfect Whirled Cheek Stain that combines a soft coral and pink for beautifully blushing cheeks and as with the foundation no additives or parabens.
The Muse is all about anything to help her bottom lashes to look longer and fuller! Wimpy lower lashes=so not cool! Tarte Bottoms Up Lower Lash Mascara promises to coat every single one of my bottom lashes and make them full and lovely looking!
We all need a little pick me up palette for Spring! Check out Tarte Spring Greening Straw Palette! Contains 6 Tarte Eyeshadows, three tarte mini glosses, an applicator, and a reusable straw bag. Aww sweet!
If you’re all about natural you’ll be happy to know all of the above products contain none of the following ingredients:
All in all a rather nicely made up Spring Collection for Tarte and sometime to look forward to for those who are conscious of what goes into their cosmetics!
What do you think?
Tell the Muse!
All the Stila Loves Barbie Sets are completely sold out at Sephora already? Wait what? What about mine? The Muse hasn’t gotten hers yet! I want to speak to the woman in charge.
Can it be?
The Stila Loves Barbie Talking Palette is still up there but all four cans are “temporarily sold out”…..
I need a paper bag I’m about to hyperventilate. Stop the insanity.
Yea well fancy me not excited after seeing the actually product photos for the MAC Hello Kitty Collection. Please Jebus can it be pink Hello Kitty time now?
I’m a hopin’ and a prayin’ that MAC Hello Kitty Kouture tops all this…otherwise there will be hell to pay! No one likes a nasty Muse!
Jump ahead to understand my disappointment…or not…(you might love it!)….
My deepest, sincerest apologies for being off the MAC bandwagon lately. Hate me much? Please don’t. Your Muse was one for collecting everything and anything MAC related but lately I haven’t really been thrilled with much of anything but I am slowly gaining ground and MAC Dame Edna appealed greatly.
It was probably the lilac packaging that first caught my attention. All that light purple packaging just thrills me to bits and pieces which is why when I originally seen the MAC Dame Edna promo images I nearly fell off my chair. But I do ask myself…will MAC ever learn? Turns out the packaging is indeed gorgeous but again with the freaking stickers! Grrrrrrrr! Upon opening the glosses and lipsticks for the first time and simply sliding them out of their boxes, the stickers are already peeling off! MAC, have we learned nothing at all from Fafi’s release!?
Ok, rant over. I shall say no more.
Aside from my beef with the peeling stickers I do so believe that Dame Edna has alot of nice items and plenty that are must haves in my humble of humblest opinions although two items I think are avoidable are the eye palettes. I got my eye palette in Royal Tour and it’s nothing to get to hyper about. The colors in both palettes are quite the same o’, same o’ reruns. Royal Tour contains a soft pinkish purple shade, a lilac shade, and a deep almost periwinkle blue shade. I’m honestly at a lost how to use the palette as the shades are a mix match of colors. At this point I’m thinking of using the lightest shade as a base, the lilac as a contrasting shade for my crease and outer v, and the periwinkle as a liner. I’ll have to take a peek at the face charts for ideas on the best way to use this. I personally think, aside from the uber fabulous packaging, you can skip both palettes unless you’d just like one to add to your collection.
Now the beauty powders I was quite excited about and disappointed all in the same breath. The powders are truly gorgeous at first glance and I’m quite pleased MAC went out of their way to include a matching lilac sponge to apply the powder, nice work guys! Likey! However, the powders are sprayed with a fine shimmer over top under which lays a chalkier formula powder. I guess I was somewhat disappointed that the shimmer wasn’t straight through the powder however I honestly don’t mind that the powder is the standard MAC beauty powder formula as I do enjoy these. I got both shades which are Spectacle! a soft pink and What a Dame! a pale orange. These are quite nice to carry around for a bit of a touch up and to add a nice glow to cheeks. I liked both and think they are well worth picking up.
Finally the glosses and lippies in the collection are super and all are well worth snatching up as they are some sincerely unique shades. In particular I felt like the MAC lipglasses released with Dame Edna were particularly lovely shades. I ended up getting all three lipglasses released which were Possum Nose a bright coral (my favorite of the three), Splendid a lovely coral with hints of pink, and Hot Frost a light fuchsia shade.
I stupidly hauled only two of the three lipsticks but never mind I guess that means I’ll have extra money for MAC Hello Kitty. The two shades I got were Kanga-Rouge a lovely blue based red (My fav!) and Coral Polyp a nice shade of coral that appears almost orange.
All in all the MAC Dame Edna Collection is a nice selection of bolder, louder shades. Out of all the items I do think that the Lipglasses are the star of the show in this case and well worth picking up as I found them unique and quite nice shades for the Spring. Everything else is a bit of a hit and miss for me. I loved the Beauty Powders but again it’s nothing you absolutely have to have unless you want it for the packaging alone.
The collection doesn’t fully get me back on board the MAC train but I’m slowly gaining speed!
How about you?
What did you haul from MAC Dame Edna?
