Anna Sui Christmas Collection 2008

anna+sui

Tis the Season for a new Anna Sui Collection!

The Anna Sui website has been updated with the Christmas Collection which includes new nail polishes, new duo eyeshadows, and a few new shades of shimmer/glitter vials!

Honestly, as cute as the collection is I’m not particularly thrilled as the colors just aren’t what I like for a Holiday collection but they are limited edition which does up the appeal but ado even that doesn’t tempt me.

Two limited edition pouches with four nail polishes for 4,200 yen each are available.

Three limited edition eyeshadow duos are available as well at 2,500 yen each. These look darling but honestly the shades aren’t what I’d called Holiday friendly. Now if it was Spring or Summer I’d probably be all over these but I look for more shimmery, lighter colors come the Holiday!

And finally four new shades of the shimmer/glitter vials are available for 2,000 yen each. The shades are blue, silver, purple, and an off gold. These aren’t appealing at all to me either.

It looks like a perfectly nice selection but I think I’ll be skipping on a majority of it as it just doesn’t hold any interest for me. The selections are available within Japan only however a few select online shops do have the line available for purchase if you’re feeling a desire to own it for your very self!

KATE Website Update: KATE Gel Eyeshadows

Mmmmm mmmm mmmm good! KATE’s website has been updated with the brand new KATE Gel Eyeshadows and the Muse couldn’t be happier!

KATE is a Japanese brand that is exclusive to Japan however if you take a look at my buying guide you can locate a few shops online that sell KATE.

The brand new gel eyeshadows are calling my name I’ll be indulging in quite a few of the shades plus the price is right at 8,50 yen. At that price I think it’s safe to say that these should be about the size of KATE’s Gel Eyeliner which is about half the size of a MAC Fluidline.

These shadows are quite similiar to gel liners released this past Spring as they look like they have a metallic finish with quite a good bit of shimmer but we shall see soon enough!

Lemming ‘em?

Lush B Electro Soap Review

During my last UK Lush Order I failed to order Lush B Electro Soap which is Lush’s newest soap that’s available for a limited time, thank god for that.

I’m not the biggest fan of B Electro considering that it reminds me of another soap Lush used to make entitled Happy….I believe it was Happy don’t quote me on that though (many Lush soaps have come and gone through the Muse’s life and she can’t remember them all, especially if they sucked!).

It lathers really well however doesn’t offer any moisturizing as most Lush soaps do. I think about the only good thing about it, is it’s cool neon color and the neon suds it creates in my shower! I feel like I need a dark light so I can take a shower while my body is partially submerged in bits of neon green suds! During this time I could also play bad 80’s Cyndi Lauper songs and bop around the shower stall singing about how girls just want to have fun (stranger things have been known to happen in the Muse’s shower!).

I normally dislike shopping for Lush in store considering people put their grubby, sweaty hands on everything in the store which is about the time the Muse has a total freak attack over the germs…oh god the germs…..Ahhhh! Lord knows some of these people may have picked their nose prior to picking up that bath bomb!

You can relate if A. You’ve shopped at Lush before or B. Don’t dig strangers touching soap and other items that you’ll be using on your body or face!

I got sucked into the pull of buying a chunk of B Electro when an SA calmly explained to me that the entire slab was brand new and just put out, she promised, swore on her dear old dead grandmere, and on her unborn child that it indeed was new. I quickly took her word for it and decided ok I’ll buy a slice since I’m here already! Later on my friend Jamie reminded me that several people were in the store during this time and could have possibly touched it before I entered shop…thanks Jamie…Love you.

I quickly realized when I got it home that this wasn’t for me. Although it’s a nice enough soap and suds up beautiful and of course as I mentioned it’s freaking neon green (that along should make us all wet our pants in excitement!), this is sadly all it has going for it. I sniffed it casually when in the store but when I did finally get around to using it I just wasn’t digging the scent.

Sheesh I hate giving Lush a poor review. I love Lush but this just didn’t do it for me! I had hoped and wished for a bright, citrus scent and B Electro does have have a nice fruity, citrus smell but it also has an underlay of fennel and rose which pulls through way more prominently then it’s base of grapefruit. I don’t mind the rose but bringing together rose, fennel, grapefruit and jasmine and you pretty much have disaster in a bar of soap!

Sadly, B Electroc failed to do much for me and my $10 piece quickly made it’s way into the nearest trash can however I keep hope alive that one day Lush will create another masterpiece of a citrus soap like Sexy Peel and all will be right again with the world! Until that time no more exciting neon green shower experiences here!

Tried it out?

Want to?

Loved it?

Tell the Muse!
