Clarins Holiday Collection 2008 Chic & Glam Holiday Colour Collection

Golly..I’m reviewing Clarins Fall Collection tonight and already the Holiday Collection is knocking on my door!

Isn’t it nuts how quickly collections have popped up this year? Phew! I’m exhausted and it isn’t even Christmas yet!

Clarins celebrates the Holiday Season with some fabulous kits this year and at $40 USD they are quite wallet friendly in my humble opinion!

Lush Christmas 2008

It’s my personal favorite time of the year….can you by chance guess what time of the year that would be?

It would be the announcement of the Lush Christmas 2008 Collection!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh the Muse is running around in circles in utter excitement! You’ve no idea how excited I get when Lush puts out it’s offerings for Christmas!

Before you get excited, let me tell you that Lush’s Christmas Collection is ONLY available on Lush UK’s website so far. I suspect you’ll see an update for Lush NA around the beginning or middle of November! Yes, you can order from Lush UK if you’re within the US and this is normally what I do as 1. I’m impatient and 2. I like the quality of UK Lush a bit better when compared to the US.

Lush has brought some odd favorites back and PLENTY of brand new items that are sure to please!

Returning Bath Bomb Favorites:

Twinkle, Mister Butterball, and Jingle Spells

Brand Bath Bombs:

Humango, Magic, and Snowdrops

Rimmel London Shock Gloss 3D Mattifying Lipgloss

Ok…I wants Rimmel London Shock Gloss 3D Mattifying Lipgloss…..

rimmel%3B


I’m not Rimmel’s biggest fan but I’m actually quite curious to try these new glosses! These are available in three shades so far for
3.99 within the UK. The Muse is hopeful we’ll see them US side soon.

Rimmel has adapted the popular Asian spatula style applicator that I simply love for gloss application! More brands seriously have to get on board with this awesome applicator!

The shades are entitled Intense (Clear Pink), Clearly Clear (Clear), and Amp’ed (Red). The formula supposedly gives a highly glossy finish however I have tried one Rimmel gloss prior that promised similiar and was a grave disappointment!

I think I’ll wait to try them out when they reach my side of the pond rather than spend money on airmail on an item I may not like!

Are you within the UK?

Tried these yet?

Love ‘em!?

Share with the Muse!

Bath and Body Works Holiday Collection 2008

Bath and Body Works has a little sneak peek up of it’s Holiday Collection and I’m actually quite excited about the offerings myself!

Many of the Lambie items offered last year are back this year and I’ll definately be adding a majority of these to my both my own wish list and gift list for friends and family! I was happy to see the revised the Sweetest, Softest Blanket from last year which they have placed a little Lambie emblem on it! So cute! I purchased the Sweetest, Softest Blanket last year and was very happy with it, I’ll definately be indulging in the latest one! This year they also wrapped the blanket up in a beautiful gift giving box! The blanket is $35 USD and possibly the best money you’ll ever spend on such a luxuriously warm blanket, it’s perfect for snuggling on the couch to watch DVD’s or for extra warmth during chilly winter nights! The blanket is available in white or black. Last year I recall wanting to wait to purchase my Sweetest, Softest Blanket till the Semi-Annual Sale and I’m honestly glad I didn’t as they sold out quite quickly towards the middle of December so I highly suggest nabbing this quickly!

Last year when I blogged about the Lambie slippers I got SO many emails asking me about them and it’s no wonder why as they are truly cute! These are available in two styles, a full slipper and a sock slipper. The sock slipper was extremely limited at one time but this past Summer I’ve seen them slowly appear back in shops but I predict both the slippers and the socks will sell out very quickly just like the blanket so do nab them early if you want them!

lambie+slippers

The slipper socks are a value at $10 USD and come in two colors this year!

The Lambie slippers have been revised lightly with a raised heel that allows the slipper to hug your entire foot. I like this new version as last year I had a little problem with the slipper turning inward! It’s about time for a new pair so I’ll definately be indulging! These are $16 USD and I believe a bit cheaper from last year as I recall paying more but I could be wrong!

lambie

The Bath and Body line up isn’t full up and available as of yet but I did come across a few pieces for the Holiday! I’m a sucker for Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint so I was quite excited they extended the scent to the hand soap! I’ll definately be stocking up this! These are $5 USD each and are available in all the traditional Bath and Body Works Holiday scents such as Winter Candy Apple and Vanilla Bean Noel!

hand+soap

One item that didn’t really catch my eye are the new Bath and Body Works Glittering Shower Gels for $11 USD. I’m somewhat bored with the typical scents they release year after year which are Winter Candy Apple and Vanilla Bean Noel! I may indulge in a Twisted Peppermint one however “glittering” shower gel doesn’t seem like something I’d love! Shimmer and glitter in my makeup items, yes, but not in my shower!

shower+gel

You can see more of the Bath and Body Works Holiday Collection 2008 by taking a look at the sneak peek on their website!

A few items so far have definately caught my eye and of course the Lambie items are on my wishy list for sure! I look forward to seeing what else is released for the upcoming season! I’m super disappointed that Bath and Body Works has successfully eliminated the Temptations Collection from both it’s Fall and Holiday Collections, I doubt these will be back ever. The items I’ve featured are available for purchase now online and I’m pretty sure stores must be stocking them too shortly! I haven’t been inside a BBW in a few weeks now but I’m pretty sure they busy stocking these up already or will be soon!

Want any of the BBW Holiday selections?

Love ‘em?

Love the Lambie Collection as much as your Muse?

Tell me all about it!

Too Faced Holiday Collection 2008: What A Girl Wants

headerImg launchPad

Too Faced seems to know what a girl wants this holiday season with it’s new Holiday Collection!

Plenty of shimmer, glimmer and sweet palettes await you from the Too Faced Holiday Collection entitled What A Girl Wants!

What a girl wants and what a girl needs is more Too Faced makeup!

Ok, so are you naughty or nice? Freak it….go on and be both with the Too Faced Naughty and Nice Set for $29.50 USD

I personally consider myself super nice with a tiny crusty, chewy inside of naughty. How about you? For my nice side I can use the natural, nude shades included with the palette and for my inner naughty side I can deck myself out with a smoked out eye and a sexy red pout! The palette includes two complete sides of color to create a more natural or a sexier evening look. A total of 12 shades make up the palette, 6 shadows and 6 lip creams!

You might want to step up your game a little bit and go for the Too Faced The Jewelry Box Pink Diamond Edition for $39.50 USD! $10 bucks more than the Naughty and Nice Set will get you an array of items to make up face, lips, and cheeks!

product The Jewelry Box Pink Diamond Edition 002 l

For the mini obsessed check out Too Faced Mini Mirror Mirror Gloss Set for $25 USD and Too Faced Mini Starry Eyed Liner Set for $25 USD!

The Too Faced Mirror Mirror Gloss Set comes with a Muse recommendation and approval! Bestest gloss evers!

Too Faced has quite a few other beautiful pieces up their sleeve for the Holiday Season! Do check out further information about the Too Faced Holiday Collection What a Girl Wants by clicking here!

Indulging in any of this collection?
