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‘.

    Eeep! That polish WILL be mine. Is that sea-horse thing a blush/highlighter? It’s too darn adorable.

  • caroline

    eeek! i’m SO excited to see more photos of this collection! just wanted to say HI! i’ve been reading your blog for awhile- has totally inspired me to get more into makeup (oh, and more in debt! hehe) and i have to say it’s a LOVE!
    you’re awesome and i love your reviews!

    • the Muse

      hi caroline!!!!! thanks for stopping by to say hey 😀 aw shucks thanks! I’m flattered I’m influencing you into the wild world of makeup!

      Thank you for the incredible comment 😀

      I too can’t wait for more info and pics of this collection!

  • Anastasia

    Oh, pretty packaging.

    But… no… evil. Bad MAC. With their bad price increases and terrible customer service and green eyeshadow packaging…

    Eh, it’s not like it’ll ever get to England. We don’t even have All Races yet.

    • the Muse

      damn anastasia you guys didn’t get all races yet!?

      shat! That’s bad!

  • Cucumpear

    Wow, I’m really not much of a MAC person, but I’m loving the look of this stuff. I wonder what the orange compact is…

  • Nunu

    *Gasp* Musey has been holding out on us!!! I don’t even care what it is, but I’ll take 3 of the seahorse.
    The packaging is strangely familiar……omg could it be Neo sci-fi n Turquatic?

  • MC

    LoL…I like the sea horse powder. The lipstick and lip glass tubes have a Neo SciFi look to them..the pencils look adorable. I’m licking my chops thinking about it lol.

  • Vonvon

    OMG!! are those sea creatures on the product itself or on the cover only? the one with the sea horse….gasp!! So pretty!!!!

      • Vonvon

        Oh NOOOOO!!! How will I have the heart to use it if all the sea creatures are on the products??? Get doubles of everything??? sob sob….

  • Sarah

    Omg <3 your literally amazing!

    I couldn't afford By Candlelight MSF , but what looks like an amazing face powder is there! It looks really nice, can't wait!


    • the Muse

      sarah now you have time to save up as this looks WAY better than by candlelight 😀


  • Vanessa

    I hoping that the orange packaging is just a test run colour, and not part of the actual line – we’ve already seen it in Sci-Fi, there’s no need to recycle the colour again!

    • the Muse

      true vanessa but I haven’t really considered it I’m busy being gobsmacked by the seahorse powder 🙂

  • Anna

    I just wee-ed with you OMG I need the Sea Horse and I swear I will display it in my beauty cabinet and never use it. LOVE IT!

  • jenn

    Wow! I think I just wee-ed in my pants along with you.

    Any idea when it will launch? I can’t WAIT!!!

  • Daituf

    But I still wouldn’t buy MAC… I just don’t really understand its hype you know?
    Also, how come everyone’s so gaga over UD’s alice in wonderland palette? Nothing against it or the brand of course!
    I’m just curious…

    • the Muse

      daituf mac is something that either grabs your from the start or grows on you 😀 I happen to be the grow on you one. I used to buy mac for a friend in the UK all the time and ship it. Was never into it at all but as I started buying her stuff I started to get more and more and more into it…it’s something that grew on me. If you like alot of variety and endless choices plus tons of fresh and new makeup almost every month or sometimes two to three times a month MAC is one of those brands that keeps the edge. very few companies release as many collections as mac does in the industry and this is one reason I believe it’s so popular. The never ending stream of release after release really excites makeup lovers.

      As for Alice that’s the packaging primarily. People are crazed over Alice at the moment due to the movie so of course the palette captured the interest of many plus many people are just die hard fans of UD and it was a must have item instantly 🙂

      I really depends I guess how INTO makeup you get 🙂

  • Melody Lai

    I love it !
    Reminds me of Neo Sci Fi from a while ago (:
    I can’t wait til this collection launches
    maybe just for the packaging (: HAHAHA.

    • the Muse

      melody for sure! very neo-sci fi 😀 ha I hear ya packaging is my downfall!

  • jas


    i’d not only wee in my pants if i could touch these babies!!!!!!!!!

    MAC has just outdone herself yet again.

    • the Muse

      tammy I don’t have it. I WISH! I got the image from a blog who posted it after the editor of the teen vogue beauty blog tweeted it 😀 If I had it I’d be rolling around in fits of delight!

      I know nothing aside from the pic you see 🙂

  • charlieee

    OMG! orange and lime packaging! and that seahorse powder! *drools*
    can’t wait to read about the colour information! the collection looks good! thanks for the heads up Muse! 🙂

  • mochamishmash

    OMGooness! I need that starfishy thingy right now!! Dunno what it is, but I want it–lol!! Can’t wait to see everything…please don’t make us wait too long!

    • the Muse

      haha mocha I hear ya. I really can’t wait until it hits store so I can get some!

  • Dana

    omg… the seahorse… wow… can’t waitttttt…. maybe i’ll finally get more MAC hahaha

  • pinkcrow

    all my $ is going to the Give me Liberty of London collection! And with the price increases, my money will be more selectively spent.

  • Bjooti

    I think it all looks rather horrid, except the pens and the seahorse powder. The rest of the packaging puts me totally off. Yikes.

    • the Muse

      hey kat! I like the seahorse powder too 😀 Have to see the colors of the products to really decide but so far kinda digging it 🙂

  • Lilan

    how adorable is the ocean theme?? can’t wait to check ’em out!

    miss you Musey!

    • the Muse

      aw lilan miss ya back my dear friend! I’ll pop in later to say heys 😀 deal? 😀

      Loving the ocean theme, loving it! 🙂

  • K

    that seahorse is on top of my list! want it now, please! hahah. and ooh, are those eye pencils? too cute!! can’t wait for this collection to come out 🙂

    • the Muse

      k I’m with you. right now please 😀 looks like eye pencils yup! 😀

  • PinkyKathy

    Awwwwww, such a pretty packaging!! I think my money could be gone for the seahorse powder , starfish blush, and lippies. ^_^

    One thing, I don’t like the idea of reusing package design from NEO SCI FI collection. Like…… compare to JAP makeup, they tend to have more and more and more new design.

    Anyway, those r cute!! can’t wait to see them in the store. :))

    • the Muse

      kathy that’s about where my bucks will go 😀 mmm yea…it is back to neo sci fi which isn’t cool but I’m so in lust with the seahorse I’m disregarding 🙂

      me too dying to see in person!

  • Robyn

    the colours of lipgloss look interesting so im intrigued by what th elipsticks will be but…

    really sorry muse but i hate the packaging i like the shell idea etc but its just so mixy matchy theres orange then theres green then theres a different green then theres black
    my eyes just no likey if they had just stuck to one colour i like the pencil packaging tho

    • the Muse

      ha robyn that’s quite ok hun no need to apologize 😀

      I have to really see it before I decide what I think but so far I likey 😀 the powder is thrilling me! 🙂

  • Anitacska

    OMG OMG OMG! That seahorse powder is gorgeous! I’m going to buy two of it, one to use, one to stare at! 😀 The rest I’ll have to check for colours, the packaging alone doesn’t excite me that much, but that seahorse powder is very Chantecaille that I love love love! (I have duplicates of all their pretty palettes like Protected Paradise – I am THAT crazy!) 😀

    • the Muse

      anita couldn’t agree more 😀 OMG dude can I come over and play!? 😀

  • Hailee

    Haha! I was just saying how much I like the sleek black look of mac, and this pops up! Loves it. It’s like…cute, but not kiddy cute…ifyaknowwhatimean

    I love the coral on the liner

    • the Muse

      lol hailee and yes and I had replied 😀 but yes totally with ya love the looks of it all!

  • MM Curator

    Oooooh, these will definitely be making it into the collection. Thanks for the heads up!!

  • suz

    what month will this release or is it already released? dang it I haven’t bought anything mac and now this collection is tempting me…need to save save save…tax comes to rescue…

  • Marsha

    I LOVE the packaging. I’m a packaging whore. I’m probably buy something based on that alone.

  • Irene

    Oooh my.. that blush? with the seahorse on it looks gorgeous! Wanna have! <3

  • Ellie

    Oh…my…gosh…I must have the seahorse powder (of course) and the pink lipgloss, and probably whatever is in the orange compact. I’m hoping it’s a blush or blot powder. After looking at lists of all the stuff that MAC would bring out in spring I made a list of the things I wanted (being very selective for my bank account’s sake) and then said “Okay, after I get these things I’m going on project 10 pan”….yeah, and now I can’t. Haha. Oh well. I got into MAC right when Grand Duos and Style Warriors came out so besides Hello Kitty I have no LE packaging like this. SO EXCITED~!

    • the Muse

      hey ellie must has it all too 😀 Oh you’re a mac virgin how awesome 😀 I imagine you’re VERY excited than 🙂

  • DonnaN


    I am SO getting this collection……thank GOD that it’s summer, so that it gives me time to save after Spring Color next week…….

    Must have it ALL!!!

  • GretalovesMAC

    This is just Awesome!!!! I didn’t see this one coming at ALL!! Me love it looonnggg time:) Wish they used some other neon colors besides the orange though, maybe they could have used neon yellow, purple etc……Oh well I will def. buy doubles of ALL of it!

    • the Muse

      hey greta I’m so with you it’s lovely and can see myself going the backup path!

  • Gia

    That pink lip glass is mine!! I wish something had a dolphin on it. It’s soo bright I just want to stare at the packing instead of the snow we have outside my window 🙁

  • Joyce

    I will eat peanut butter and turn down the heat in the house to save for this! I Love this , so fun. I thought I was saving for Give Me Liberty….

  • Christy

    OMG! I can’t wait to see more pictures. I am just not becoming a MAC addict. But the more I buy the more I need to buy more! I love everything about it! Can’t wait! Thanks so much for enabling! LOL

    • the Muse

      LOL Christy sounds very mac addict-y to me dear 😀 hehe! You’re most welcome!

  • Hannah

    Darn Mac. I’m 14 and feel like I shouldn’t be wanting Mac makeup, but it’s just too pretty. I wish it wasn’t as expensive though…

  • star

    I can’t wait for this collection to come out! though i do kind of wish the lip products were turquoise or blue coloured instead of the bright orange. it would just feel more sea-y to me 🙂
