Most Wanted Beauty: Spring Lemmings

As we head into Spring…wait….pause….

Are we heading into Spring? According to Punxsutawney Phil we’ll be seeing six more weeks of Winter.


Ok….let’s go ahead and make up a Spring Most Wanted Beauty list ANYWAY. It’ll be a good way to pass the cold days ahead.

Jump ahead to see what my current Most Wanted Beauty items are!

From the new Trish McEvoy Demure Collection I absolutely must have the Trish McEvoy Demure Sparkle Eye Base Essentials ($24). Trish’s upper-eye brightener and shadow primer gets a revamp with a dose of flattering radiance in the perfect pink base. I need more sparkle in my life so this is right up the Muse’s alley!

Givenchy Printed Lips ($24.50) top my Spring most wanted. Seriously, the Muse is all kinds of bonkers about lips stains and markers and such but few companies actually successfully implement the idea. I’m taking bets Givenchy’s version will be utterly fab-o. Created in two shades this water-based formula promises to keep lips hydrated while tinting them with a weightless, naturally finished bite of pink or red.

I so need a little Tarina Tarantino in my life. Particularly the Tarina Tarantino Eye Shadows, Blush, and Sparklicity Shimmer Dust. Yes please to all three.

As the warmer weather sets in I’ll be hunting around for the latest and greatest in the realms of TM’s. Could Sephora Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 be it?

I want a Anastasia Mini Wax Kit to tame the fuzz. Plus it’s $12, affordable and practical!

Tarte Natural Lip Stain
($24) has me a hopin’ and wishin’ that they are the same formula as Tarte’s Natural Cheek Stain. Dontcha think it would be cool if they took all that goodness and slapped it into a stick form for your lips? One can hope! Must get me some!

Still haven’t indulge in Stila Eye Shadow Trios ($20) but they will be mine! I have my eye on Goddess, Going Green, and Bella.

The new range of Marc Jacobs Splashes ($68) have captured my attention. These are inspired by the decadent indulgences of a patisserie shop and are available for a limited time. Marc Jacobs Biscotti Splash Scent has my name written all over it!

How about you?

Anything topping your most wanted beauty list for Spring or even just for now?

Something you have to have?

Any we share in common?

Spill it!

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‘.

    • the Muse

      OMG OMG OMG dina mac spring forecast we should shop it together, gonna try to hit up mac this week to get me somes. jo malone red roses=AWESOMEZZZZ

      I never tried the shower gel for field of flowers, is it nice?! def on the new harajukus! I smelled PS I love you and got a little bit vertigo….it’s a bit too floral have you sniffed yet?

      LOL! hehe *bounces* so exciting love new stuff!

  • dina

    me too!!! field of flowers is very pretty, i actually got through a whole 16 oz last spring/summer and that usually takes me forever. it is just straight up mixed flowers, don’t know how else to describe it, no one floral sticks out in it for me.
    the original ps i love you was def way to strong but i think they have a new one out that is blue. as long as its new and doens’t involve musk/woods i have to at least ck it out πŸ˜‰ sick i tell you

    • the Muse

      hey dina! Interesting might have to try that out for me πŸ˜€
      no no that’s the one I am talking about the new one. It’s a heavy lily of the valley note (I think it was lily) VERY floral. I like it and hate it as smelling it made me slightly sick, bit too much but very curious what you think πŸ˜€

  • Kristina

    Yup, Tarte’s gel stain was on my list and now I want Givenchy’s too! And Bobbi’s new palette of course.
    Love my Cucumber Splash so can’t wait to sniff the new ones!

  • Marina

    Tarina for sure! The Kat’s Beethoven and MM palettes…Some more UD. After getting the Alice BoS and the deluxe palette, I am so hooked. I definitely need full size of X, because I’ve been using it on my eyes almost daily as well as a highlight for my cheeks…

  • jonnie

    I want the Tarte lip stain very much (I have my eye on Moody…). Please review it when you get it!

    I hadn’t seen the biscotti splash but omg does that sound fantastic! I just bought a couple things from BPAL though; I shouldn’t buy more fragrance right now… not that I really need a new lippie right now either though…

    • the Muse

      hey jonnie for sure! It all looks delightful πŸ˜€

      god Bpal V-Day is killing me! Trying to avoid but it’s HARD!

      • jonnie

        I know… I love BPAL. I just bought a scent locket from them too…I can’t wait to get it all.

        My work has been super stressful recently so I’ve been spending a ton more money than I should be. Retail therapy… my closet and makeup b ag is happy but I’m spending way too much…

        Anyway, back to lemming… I forgot about the UD Stardust! I want Bobby Dazzle too. Another thing I don’t need since I just got the Alice Book o’ Shadows… I have tons of eyeshadow at this point! Plus, now that I got my little $10 Benefit kit I think I may be a fan of PosieTint… and thanks to the last post I also think I need that Japanese moisturizer. So… much… stuff…

        • the Muse

          hey jonnie!

          bpal kills me. πŸ˜€ I never purchased any of the scent lockets but I have a stash of bpal that will boggle your mind πŸ˜€

          same here! Same here! My office is INSANE around this time of the year and I’ve been relieving stress with retail therapy. LOL damn girl! Your list is growing my leaps and bounds πŸ˜€ Posietint=LOVE

          add yumberry from stila on there it’s just as gorg as posietint πŸ™‚

          • jonnie

            This is the first scent locket I’ve ever tried… I wasn’t too interested but I looked at the Neil Gaiman ones and had to have the one that looks all haunted houseish. I got a sample of Cathouse room spray, a new bottle of my beloved Dorian, and a bottle of White Rabbit in honor of the AIW movie… Alice was my fave book since I was 9. I even had teachers that used to call me Alice… prolly cause I was in Wonderland all the time… so I’m all worked up about the new movie. πŸ™‚ I haven’t tried WR before so we will see how that one goes.

            At this point I’m trying to avoid BPAL’s website. I must not look at the vday stuff… must not…

  • Terri

    Hey Muse! I didn’t really make a list, but I did do a bit of a spring haul yesterday…I ordered the new Tarte lipstain (in Moody), Too Faced Beach Bunny bronzer, the new Laura Mercier polished palette (this will be my first LM product, so I can’t wait to compare it to Bobbie!), Stilla Convertible colour (in bright Petunia) and a few other lipglosses to play with (a couple of BE boxums, which I really like, and Sephora has a $34 Fusion gloss on for $10, so I threw that in my basket too!)….I should get everything next week, and I can’t wait!

    • the Muse

      hey terri!!!!!!!! sounds like a nice Spring haul to me πŸ˜€ I can’t wait either!!!! hehe you have me hyped for your haul! the polished palette looks fab and I’m looking forward to hearing what you think πŸ˜€

    • jonnie

      Ooh, i’d like to know what you think of Moody too… I’ve been toying with buying it off and on but I’m not sure yet… plus I always wait until there’s enough stuff I want to get the free shipping. πŸ™‚

      • Terri

        That’s how this haul started…I needed to replenish my night cream, so may as well make it worth my while! We have to get at least $120 worth of stuff for free Canadian shipping….but for some reason, that’s never really an issue for me πŸ™‚

        • the Muse

          lol ever an issue for me either terri dishing out $100 bucks on makeup? no problem! I got it covered LOL!
