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.

    I am ridiculously curious about the Rainbow glitter eyeshadow… it looks almost like an iridescent white from the product imagery. How’re they going to make good on the promise of it being “rainbow”?! So wanting to find out!!!

    • the Muse

      hi nyc doll I believe it’s iridescent so it gets that pinkish/bluish sheen that appears rainbow like if that makes sense 🙂


    oh I love it <3 The packaging is so nice and the colours look so amazing.

    But I thought they would be eventually price reduced at sephora 🙁 im still waiting. lol

    oh well I really love rainbow and silver and gold are the best colours. 🙁 so much want so little time

    • the Muse

      LOL me too Linda! I stalk that shiz like a dog with a bone 😀 I’m waiting LOL!

  • Kate

    The rainbow e/s sounds intriguing. And I love the packaging on the powder. Would have to see some swatches (hint, hint!) or see these in person.

    • the Muse

      hey kate kinda leaning towards the shadow so swatches may be in your future 😀

  • Su

    I am interested in all especially glow powder..I am curious with green and lavender color powder lol..
    I want to know how it will work ..and I love shu eyeshadows..

  • ginnygordon

    I also vote for swatches, please! I am really curious about these, but I already have several white and silver shadows, so I am not sure they’re worth it unless they are really unique. ‘Rainbow’ really catches my attention and I love the packaging on the flawless glow powder.

    • the Muse

      hey ginny def see what happens when it hits counters dear 😀 the silver and gold are calling me!

  • Angel

    I’m interested in swatches between this gold eyeshadows versus the gold one from Tokidoki!

  • Tiffany

    • the Muse

  • plue

    but i may go and check out rainbow and see how it looks like tho 😛

    • the Muse

      hey little sis me either! def not a summer girl 😀 gimme Fall!

  • Dawn

    Aww, these are all so lovely. That glow powder is so funky I may just have to get that. It makes me sad, though, because I read on The Beauty Girl that Shu Uemura makeup is being phased out of the U.S. market.
    We’ll still be able to buy it online, but still…

    • the Muse

      hi dawn yup I know I did a post about Shu pulling out of the US market a few weeks ago 😀 Pretty sad 🙁 at least it’ll be available online!

  • Yui

    Hi! I went straight to the nordstrom website once I read this post and placed an order for the Rainbow along with a mother’s day gift. Received it last night and compared it to the Lunasol Stardust on Eyes… Shu glitter/shimmer is very very fine. I love it!!

    • the Muse

      hi yui! jealous! I haven’t tried yet or purchased 😀 sounds gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! enjoy 😀

  • wefadetogray


    How do you use this glam powder? I do not really understand 🙁
    Do you use the different colors for different areas of your face? do you just mix them all? what’s the difference between the lighter and darker shades? does it work like the meteorites by guerlain?
    ufff! sorry for this crazy amount of questions!
    ps: just a brief comment on the rose scents. I tried the pixie rose perfume and is disgusting! 🙁 still looking…

    • the Muse

      hi wefadetogray

      I haven’t gotten it to be honest but from what I understand the upper part highlights and the lower set contours. you’re supposed to swirl across sections and use them in areas you would naturally highlight and/or contour.

      oh thanks for the heads up on pixi! 😀 I was going to buy!
