Happy Lunar New Year!

I normally get crazed on the weekends and don’t sit at my computer so just wanted to wish each of you a very Happy Lunar New Year!

For those who celebrate, I hope you all end up with plenty of  lucky $$ for haulin’ new makeup goodies!

Happiest New Year friends! 新年快樂!


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‘.

    Happy Lunar New Year to you! I’m just sitting at my son’s wrestling practice plotting my next Sephora purchase… I got an email today saying I can get a full-size super pink Sephora brand lip gloss as a gwp… 🙂

  • Tammy

    Happy Lunar New Year/Valentine’s Day to you too! I don’t think I’ll be getting much money to haul anything, but I’ll be celebrating with the boyfriend by eating lots of yummy food and watching fireworks in Little Saigon (in Los Angeles)! We’ve been together so long that we’re sooo beyond over waiting an hour (or more) for a friggin’ table at some over-crowded restaurant. We’d rather do something fun, like watch (and possibly play with) fireworks!

      thanks tammy 😀 I hope you had a fab one and had plenty of yummie goodies 😀 LOL! I hear that!!!!!! I really believe I love you isn’t just for one day of the year, it’s for everyday right? 😀

  • eliza

    that’s very nice of you! thank you! sadly i’m overseas this year so can’t get “lucky money” for more makeup :p

    Happy New Year too Muse. Mum normally gives me a small amount as a gesture… but i’m looking forward to Dad’s 😛 Being a bit sheepish here, i shouldn’t be like this… but I’m lemming too much from Spring Colour Forecast! It better be out here soon. (as reference – I went to a store maybe a week after Warm and Cozy came out, everything had arrived except the shadesticks… and then I got a call like, 3 weeks after to say they have arrived, but by then I was too busy to go, it was out of the way -_- so when I arrived only 2 of the 4 was left. At least the one I wanted (cuddle!!!) was there so I did manage)
    PS Someone is selling the Alice in Wonderland palette here on Trade Me (our version of eBay) for NZ$169! (that is at least US$110) GULP

    • the Muse

      hey marcy! Aw that’s lovely 😀 Spring Forecast was out last week for me but didn’t get a sec to get to the counter grrr but will do shortly 😀 I did get a few testers. Damn your counter took a bit to get Warm and Cozy, you must abroad! Oh duh just read and realized you are abroad haha! OMG 110? that’s insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sheesh talk about greedy! That’s double the price!

      I hope you got plenty of lucky money 😀 Two of my friend’s parents give me lucky money ever year, rather embarrassing as i never want to accept it but do not want to insult them by refusing!!!!!! 😀
