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.

    Hmmm… Well, I DO need a new bronzer. I had to ditch my trusty Wet n’ Wild bronzer, as it was made in China (long story, will post on it soon).

    Bahama Mama looks nice, but I doubt my skin will be able to tolerate the polyethylene. Plus that upskirt pic on the packaging kinda grosses me out; it’s like “Girls Gone Wild: Polynesia”. I’m considering Make Up Forever’s Matt Bronze, instead.

    PS: I read your previous post on Clarisonic. You gots to ditch the Clarisonic before it’s too late! Don’t makes the same mistake that I did!

    Seriously, demand a refund.

    hey mandy 🙂

    Can’t wait to hear it 😉 I’ve been swamped so haven’t visited nearly enough! Be over soonish!

    LOL You’re nuts 😛 The color looks utterly off to me. When I think bronze I’m more into the healthy peach color where as this is cardboard brown..or is it only me that noticed that?!

    Just replied a bit ago. Sorry for the delay 😉 I’m returning it to Sephora shortly PHEW!

    Why did you like it?

  • the Muse

    hey gez!

    Me too! Wish stila would take a note and bring back the stila girls more often 🙂

  • the Muse

    morning nicks 🙂 how are you today!?

    I’d say save your cash for something better too 😉 Tanning, bronzing, etc…they make my full face even fuller. I hate the look of a tan on my skin! Yuk! I’m already sporting a double chin with a tan it becomes triple 😉 hehe!

    oops sorry
    the clarisonic.

    Didn’t you say you liked it in your review?

  • MandyPandy

    No, that wasn’t the review. Actually, I said that I desperately wanted it, but when I got, I didn’t even used it for the first two weeks. Then I used it regularly for like, a week. I do this kinda stuff a LOT. Before it was the Clarisonic, it was the T3 Tourmaline hairdryer (oy vey!). For 2009, I’m planning on not buying anything that’s not a necessity; this madness has to stop!

    MMm don’t feel bad I’m the same. I go through a honeymoon period with stuff and I’m loving it at the moment but within a few days, a week, a month,’s laying under bathroom counter with the rest of the crap I only used for a few days. I’m wasteful like that at times 🙁

    I guess it’s part of being a girl!?

    I’m sorta kinda banning myself at this point.

    I’m trying to refrain from going nuts with cosmetics too since I’ve got a load of PR crap to review sometimes I get really overwhelmed 😛

    I actually have to disagree, I love the matte color for countouring more than as a bronzer..there is no shimmer and for my pale skin it’s perfect for giving me higher cheekbones and a narrower nose (for photos at least) I have to say i just for like it. I found theBalm at and (same site/cart) when they stopped carrying it a Sephora. They ship for free and overnight. Plus of you use code “BABYSMILE” at checkout you can save like 20% on the purchase..I also get Lorac and Stila there too.
