About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    can you recommend the best liquid eyeliner (black) under $10?

    thanks! 🙂

    So sparkly and adorable! You’ve got gorgeous eyes and your look today really enhances them and makes them shine even more!

    I’m gonna have to check out the Vincent Longo line for myself now 🙂

    Hooray! More FOTD’s! And sparkly ones too… makes me think of new-fallen snow and my new sequin top! Love it. How are you liking the BE mascara? It sounded great. Oh by the way, good morning! It’s 06:32 am here and I have just done my morning yoga! 😀 Makes me happy!

    Today is tattoo day, you know how I’m working on a sleeve with butterflies? Well, today is coloring day! I’m going to get my arm all colorful and cheery, yaay! Been waiting so long and I’m very excited. How are you today? Gosh, I was all mesmerized by your glitter and forgot to be polite! :O

    Oh and I love that Full Fuschia blush on you! A lot of people avoid blushes which looks intense in the pan but they can go on so sheer and lovely when applied!

    Hugs to you!

    Hi Sealed!

    Thanks for the comment =)

    Are you looking for a japanese brand or a standard brand? I don’t really like liquid eyeliner that much! I’m more a cake liner girl =) but I did get one from my friend as a gift that I loved but not sure on the cost! It was a Japanese liner! I’ll check on the cost for you if you want!

    I also really love Lavshuca and KATE’s super sharp liner!

    Those are about $13usd each I think!

    Hi Miss Cookie =)

    Thanks so much sweetie! You’re a doll! *blush* I love all the sparkle, glitter, and shimmer hehe!

    Oo I adore those VL Wet Diamond Shadows they are my absolute fav!

    Thanks for the comment (and compliments)!

  • the Muse

    LINN! ‘ello! *hug*

    Hehe =) I love BE Mascara especially the brushless one! It’s awesome! The one from the kit is ok but I really have to curl my lashes to get good volume using it!

    Oooo Yoga!!!!!!!! =)

    I can’t wait to see pics of your sleeve when it’s complete!

    LOL I’m good! You’re always such a bubbly, gorgeous site in the morning 🙂 All happy and excited! Such a zest for life! I love it 😉

    I subdued to the Full Fuschia with a bit of Porcelain Pink MSF =) hehe! I must say I love really bright bold blushes =)

    Hugs right back to you!!!! Thanks for always making my blog a bright, sunny place with your lovely comments!

    well, I’d like to get the liner from a drug store- so i guess that really limits the selection! It’s ok, because I know you don’t like the liquid…so I’ll do some research.

  • the Muse

    I’m so sorry sealed!

    I wish I could be of more help to you!

    MUA probably has dozens of liquid liner reviews 🙂

    I’m just not too good applying liquid liner so it’s not a fav of mine!

  • the Muse

    Hey Miss Cookie!

    Go right here my dear 🙂 I’m happy for the help here as I’m not big on liquid liner 😉

    I’ll check the Almay out myself too hehe! Because I’m always looking for a liquid liner that actually WORKS!

    Hello again! I just got home from some really nice friends where we were having a “glögg” party! Glögg is a Swedish Christmas beverage which is like a spiced wine, and we drink it hot with almonds and raisins in it. Yummy! It really warmed my winter-frozen body… 🙂 I think I have a fever now though, haven’t been feeling good at all these last two weeks! But it’s Christmas month and I’m happy anyways you know! Oh, we opened the chocolate calendar today, such a joy! This whole day has been fantastic. We went to Ikea and got two absolutely wonderful, fluffy down quilts (Ikea has these non-cruelty down comforters, I hope those are kinder to the animals because I love down, only thing that keeps me warm!), a big, big pot and a wok pan which we haven’t had earlier! Really useful stuff so I’m happy. We also got some lovely hat boxes for me to store all my little things in (more boxes…)! Have you had a good day? Hope so! It’s 9:40 pm here and I’m really tired, I’m going to do a lactic acid peel for the first time ever – have heard that it stings and burns so I’m curious about it…

    You know what? I think Santa is getting me an early Xmas gift – a camera! Actually, we have decided that it’s time to buy a real camera. Not a professional one, just a compact which is good for everyday pictures. I’m going to do that Sephora dupe FOTD and email you those pics! Exciting!

    And tomorrow it’s time to light the first candle in the Advent candleholder! I always make my own with moss and petite fake red mushrooms with green candles and a red holder. Love to do that!

    Oh I have been so curious about that brushless mascara! Seems like something extraordinary, I must say. But I love to work with bristle brushes so I’m afraid I won’t try the BA one this century lol!

    The butterflies turned out great! We only had time to do four so I’d reckon it’s about 10 hours left! You’ll get to see pictures later on! 😀 (I’m so proud lol!)

    Oh, and the yoga! I love that, tai chi and meditation. Do you do any specific exercising or so? I have been in a swim team, kayaking and horseback riding earlier, but now I prefer more calm exercises! But I have never been one to work out in a gym, that’s really not my thing! For each count of a push-up or so, I don’t count “10, 9, 8…”, I just think “No, Away, Home”! Good god!

    Aww YOU are so sweet! Your blog is already so cheery so I’m just following the lead here! HUGS TO YOU!!! Hope you’re having the best weekend!

    Sounds like a nice Ikea haul 🙂 I love ikea 🙂

    LOL boxes are addicting aren’t they!??!

    My day is going ok! Busy but good!

    Tell me how the peel went! Curious to know! I’ve wanted a facial for the past month but haven’t had a sec to go!

    OOOOO santa is quite nice lol! A new cam 🙂 Good for blogging!!!!

    I loved your sephora dup!!!!!!

    It’s so nice how very into the holiday you! You truly have the spirit! Wish I could boast the same 🙂

    Brushless mascara works a treat! It’s really really good!

    You’ll love it if you do try out!!!

    I normally walk almost 4 miles every morning and that’s my basic excersie routine 🙂 Also do it so early that it’s nice and crisp out and feels good to get the blood goining 🙂

    You’re the cheeriest happiness person I know 😉
