Bob’s your uncle, Fanny’s your auntie. That’s about the gist of it folks. Easy, One, Two, Threesy!
Hope this answers your questions!
I suppose the Spring isn’t always about pastel shades. I can’t help but think light and airy for Spring but that’s not the case with most collections releasing this year and year’s past. I imagine most brands aren’t of the same frame of mind as the Muse and when they think Spring they think time for a “tropical holiday” and time to beat the cold and embrace the warmth of a warm vacation on an island somewhere with the sun beating down on our heads and the smell of colitas rising up through the air
…oh wait…that’s a song isn’t it?
Sorry I meant to say the warm smell of tanning lotion!
Yea, well you’re either an Eagles fan and loved it or didn’t get it at all.
Sephora has embraced that warm, tropical feeling with it’s brand new collection entitled Moroccan Sunrise.
The Muse say…whoa likey!
I honestly have no love loss for Sephora Brand cosmetics but I do generally love how hard they try when they do release an interesting collection so be the case with the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Collection, it truly is rather gorgeous.
The general fanfare is included with the release including brush sets, makeup bags, and the odd little cosmetic bit and bob such as a mirror and atomizer. However, what really caught my attention was the entire makeup part of the collection. It all looks quite nice and dare I say indulge-able. Is that even a word? Well I deem it a word, place it in your Musepedia of words and phrases this Muse uses.
I personally think they went a bit too far with the fanfare items and left the color makeup part of the collection lacking. We all know that the huge selection of Moroccan themed makeup bags will end up on clearance quickly enough so why bother releasing so many? They should have expanded further on the makeup line up in my humblest as this is really quite nice.
The collection is tiny as you can see and understand why I’m ranty now. It includes a gold powder, a beautiful eye palette, and a few lipglosses. If I were Sephora I’d have done some blushes, maybe an eyeliner or two in sunny shades, and perhaps some lipsticks. They actually did pretty well with what they did release however a blush would have been superb but hey we can’t haz it all can we?
The fluff pieces:
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t thinking about adding that eye palette and bronzer too my wish list! Hmmmm….decisions, decisions…
What do you think of the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Collection?
Tell the Muse!
Although the Muse isn’t the biggest fan in the world of Valentine’s Day she can definately open her heart to the love of the Lush Valentine’s Day Collection this year!
I’m quite surprised that Lush went all out this year with it’s fine selection of Valentine’s Day gift sets. Last year the collection was a good deal smaller and I honestly thought it would be even more so this year with the economy the way it is!
But not the case at all! 5 gift sets and a few new products are on the table to sweeten up yours, a friend’s, or a loved one’s Valentine’s Day this year! Check out below for the details on what’s available!
All in all a rather lovely little round up of nice gifts from Lush! I have my eye on the Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar, You Wash My Back Soap, and a My Fair Lady Gift Set.
Is it ok to say I really want the Lush Hello Sailor Gift Set for the tattoo alone. What? I’m a sucker for temporary tattoos because I’m too much of a wussy to get a real one!

Here’s one that could be interesting, check it out:
Sephora Brand Buildable Cover Concealer…hmmm…count this Muse intrigued!
Available in three shades for $16 USD the Muse could say that this makes a girl curious for sure. Sephora Brand Buildable Cover Concealer looks like Benefit Boi-ing but supposedly dries to a powder-like finish. Not sure I’m loving a cream to powder formula in concealer can you say creasing? But it supposedly hides just about everything including tattoos…whoa…this could be good.
Buildabe coverage makes this a customized concealer for large or small problems. Contains Viatmins A and E with hydrating agents such as cocoa oil.
Sure sounds like it’s food from the concealer gods…whether it is or not remains to be seen!
In the cart you go….review coming soon!
The Muse finds that a majority of Sephora brand cosmetics are a trash…could this be awesome?
Count me curious!
But of course the Muse’s is the fairest of them all!
Ok, maybe not. I probably made that up but I happen to be a legend in my own mind…that counts for something right?
Speaking of mirrors you can nab yourself a super steal at the moment as the Too Faced Mirror Mirror Lip Gloss Set is currently hitting pay dirt over @ Sephora!
The Muse has a certain fondness…ok…PASSION for Too Faced Mirror Mirror Gloss! Loves this stuff. Alot. Possibly thee best lipgloss I’ve tried in a while. I’ve already reviewed it here on Musings but it’s well worth a re-mention as it’s currently on sale at Sephora.
Nab yourself a four pack of Too Faced Mirror Mirror Gloss for $21 USD! That’s $5.25 per a gloss and well worth it in the Muse’s humble opinion. This is a perfect excuse to try the gloss out if you haven’t already plus nab a variety of colors. Or if you’re already a fan what’s not to love about the price tag? Hello, perfectly cheap so nice to see you around here darling!
Too Faced Mirror Mirror Gloss lives up to it’s name giving lips a mirror like shine that’s intensely glossy, ultra moisturizing, and might I say super shiny! This gloss is truly one holy grail material. Simply love it.
Nab yours now for $21 USD @ Sephora
, totally Muse Approved for purchase! You can thank me later for introducing you to this “can’t live without it” lipgloss! If you’re feeling particularly generous pick up a few for V-Day gifts for friends! That’s what the Muse did!
