I was muddling around with Lavshuca’s PU-2 Palette this morning and created a super duper fast look!
What I Used:
Lavshuca Eye Color Select Palette in PU-2
Kiss Volumizing Mascara
Majorca Majolica Rouge Majex in RD419
Bourjois Paris Bons Baisers De Paris in Rose Prefere 1
The Muse has an angel that takes very, very good care of her! When the Muse needs her Japanese fix the angel is always around to get what is on the Muse’s wish list (I’m very lucky to be blessed with wonderful people in my life!)!
Today I got a gorgeous package that I have holding my breath waiting for and inside were two items that were most definately on this Muse’s wish list!
Kesalan Patharan French Couture Eyeshadow Palettes!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m quite pleased with these and I’m happy I ended up purchasing them as I wasn’t sure at first if they were worth it. I’m happy to report that you should snatch these up before they are gone for good!
Out of the entire collection of French Couture nothing else appealed to me aside from these two palettes but at first I was somewhat skeptical if they were worth a purchase but my mind was quickly changed when my sweet mate Iris said they were most definately worth getting!
The palettes are available in two flavors s005 and s004 (someday I’m going to convince the Japanese to stop naming palettes with numbers and letters! It’s bloody confusing!) . The shadows inside are three strips of shimmering color that range from dark, medium, to light which means you have just about everything you need within this compact to create your eye look!
My favorite of the two would have to be s005 which consists of a shimmering gold, a shimmering brown, and a gorgeous peach color. s004 is equally beautiful and includes a shimmering silver, a deep shimmering purple, and a lighter purple.
Of course the Muse in her sick, twisted little mind doesn’t want to use them at the moment because of the beautiful design imprinted on the middle powder! It’s a swirling flowery affair that will be ruined once you dip your brush into it. Le sigh the life of a cosmetic junkie is sometimes too stressful!
KP has outdone themselves with these very sweet palettes and I’m just enjoying looking at these at the moment and thinking up exciting eye looks to create!
The palettes are available for $55SGD and 3,990yen so I’m happy to report that the import of these to Singapore hasn’t caused too much of a price jack and the palettes are respectfully a few dollars off (for us yanks that’d be $37USD and $34USD).
I have other KP shadow trios and I do like the line of shadows from KP as they are quite pigmented but I do feel they are slightly chalky in texture and rub off a bit easily. These are the first really pretty shimmery shades I’ve seen from KP and I’m enjoying the novelty of them!
Overall, if you have the means these should most definately make an appearance on your wish list!
Now the Muse’s angel always spoils her and she also happened to included an awesome KP makeup bag for me which I’m utterly loving at the moment! It had a cute mini KP brush set inside too! Plus another cute Stila Girl makeup bag in pink The Muse loves pink! Having good friends around that take such lovely care of me always makes my day!
To all my readers here at Musings of a Muse the Muse wishes you a Creepy, Spooky, Happy, and Safe Halloween!
In continuing with my Bath on a Budget hot topic of the moment today I present to you some nice goodies from Skindazzles!
Two bath products that I adore from Skindazzles are the Bath Bombs and the Shea Boom Candy!
The Bath Bombs and Shea Boom Candy are rotated in scent as seasons and holidays change so check back often for new scents on both! At the moment my little eye spies scents like Candy Cane Cake and Gingerbread in celebration of Christmas, which will soon be upon us!
Bath Bombs are your standard bath fizzies that fizz, pop and swirl around in your tub making your bath water soft and beautifully scented! I find the scents in the bombs quite strong and lasting! I have many places I buy bath bombs from and Skindazzles makes some of my favorites!
Skindazzles Bath Bomb
Shea Boom Candy is a treat for your body! If you like your bath water moisturizing and soft these wonderful candies are what you seek! They are soft and squishy and melt away happily in your tub as you bath scenting the water and making your skin soft and sweet! I normally crumble this under running water but you can float it in your bath water and laze while it melts away! Upon exiting your bath you’ll see how gorgeously smooth your skin will feel!
Skindazzles Shea Boom Candies
Bath Bombs and Shea Boom Candy at Skindazzles are most definately fitting for bathers on a budget, bombs are $3.70 and candies are $3.
Please keep in mind prior to ordering from Skindazzles that airmail shipping applies as it’s a business located within Canada however shipping prices are fairly reasonable if you get a few items!
You’re Muse happens to love unique perfumes that she can’t get in regular shops that sell fragrance! My tastes in fragrance run to the unusual I guess and when I’m seeking something sweet, foody, or unique I visit with the gorgeous Ashley Peldon at Starring Fragrances to get my fix!
I have many, many, a bottle of cocktails that Ashley, herself, has created! The scents at Starring Fragrances are mostly in the foody range so if you’re a grave lover of scents that smell of cookies, cakes, or gorgeous decadent foody items this would be the spot you want to grab some very interesting blends!
Ashley has recently extended her popular perfume line and is now doing custom blended hair and body care items such as lotions and shampoos! I haven’t personal tried any of the new products but I can give my Muse approval to the wonderful perfume blends that are created at Starring Fragrances!
The thing that totally sells me on these perfumes is the incredible staying power and special notes within each perfume! One or two sprays is all you need to smell completely edible and delicious all day long! Upon spraying one of these you can distinctively pick out the notes with the perfume which is so amazing. If I spray myself with my favorite blend, The Scream Queen, I don’t get one particular scent from the perfume I can smell all sorts of notes through the blend all day long! As the day progresses and the perfume dries down and heats up with my body temperature I can smell the tart sweetness of the berries, the luscious vanilla ice cream, and the yummie bubble gum!
If you’re looking for a unique experience in your perfume world Starring would be a great place to start!
Some of the Muse’s favorite blends:
The Scream Queen
Yummie Berries, Vanilla Ice Cream and Bubble Gum!
Yellow Cake with fluffy marshmallow!
Strawberry and Cherry Licorice! Mmmm!
Who Spiked the Cupcakes?
Yummie cotton candy, vanilla cupcakes, and frosting! Oh my how decadent!
With a Cherry on Top
White Cake, Marshmallow, and of course Cherries!
Starring also does a line of tarts which are fantastic as well! If having your house scented with yummie baked treats sounds tempting do check out the tart line up!
Starring Fragrances is Muse approved and I can’t say enough good things about this great little e-shop!
The customer service is fantastic and packages are shipped in a very timely manner with little to no wait time! Ashley is extremely sweet and accommodating with requests if you should have any! Starring does ship via parcel post which makes the Muse impatient as her goodies normally end up taking from 7-10 days to arrive. This can’t be helped as all liquid must be shipped via US parcel post by law! Starring even has a Frequent Buyer Reward System that offers various discounts with each order you make!
The Muse always tries to get nice goodies for you and Ashley has been kind enough to offer readers of Musings of a Muse a special treat and as it’s Halloween it’s always nice to get a treat or two!
You can try out a 1oz perfume for 1/2 Price from Starring Fragrances by entering code MUSE during checkout! This is a great deal as perfume’s run $26 at the normal price!
Go get yourself a sweet treat for Halloween and tell the Muse all about it!
