High end purchase?

Low end?

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‘.

    Hey Musey,

    I’m after some new skincare stuff!
    My friend recommended it to me since it cleared her skin, it’s a natural skincare brand called Moogoo. They have a super cute website that’s so tantalising!
    But I just ordered something a few days ago so I don’t want to overload my credit card by buying more 🙁

  • thatgal

    Hey! My next purchase will be: NARS eyeshadow duo in Rated R (that crazy match chartreuse+bright blue), NARS blush in Orgasm (yes, I haven’t tried it yet), MAC paint pot in Painterly, MAC blush in Instant Chick, Urban decay Summer of love eyeshadow palette and MUFE aqua eyes liner in Majorelle Blue.

    • the Muse

      omg thatgal you’re going to be so pleased with O-it’s my fav! 😀 good purchase there!

  • Honor

    Bobbi Brown denim and rose palette, love it, love it, love it and will be perfect for a summer look……

  • Ally

    Anything from the Dolly Wink line.. Especially the falsies, lash case, and the eyeliner pen! If only I weren’t on a ‘no-buy’ I would’ve ordered those cuteness overloads a looooong time ago! Sigh.. I swore I’ll only buy what I need/run out till my skincare/makeup ‘reservoir’ drawers get some room and it’s like, they are bigger in the inside!! ;D

  • Cindy (Prime Beauty)

    I want the Becca Bombora palette, maybe the Chanel Nordstrom exclusive quad, the Shu black sand e/liner, some Trish McEvoy stuff & probably lots more!

  • Kelly S

    I was thinking of trying the Mat Velvet foundation from MUFE since I’m getting some oilies on my face from the summer. And my Dior lipstick ran out, definitely getting more of that this weekend.

  • Courtney

    Well since I just bought two palettes from Stila I think my next purchase is going to be foundation. I have Clinque, Revlon Colorstay, Eve Pearl, and Covergirl at home but I’m not 100% happy with any of them (or even 90% for that matter). I’m using the Covergirl Whipped TrueBlend right now and it’s nice but I think I need something a little more high end. Any suggestions? Someone mentioned Bobbi Brown the other day. I might give that a whirl.

    • the Muse

      hey courtney the new bobbi brown natural coverage foundation is pretty darn nice 😀

  • Michelle

    I’m going to order from giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com since they’re having 20% off orders right now! =)

  • Kristina

    I just requalified for VIB status for next year so Sephora sent me a 10% off code. I know I want Benefit’s Scene Queen as soon as it’s in and I’m thinking the Rainbow Sherbet set, and Guerlain’s new Meteorite (did you see the pretty tin?), and …

  • Janine

    Just placed a Sephora order the other day. Needed a blemish extractor tool, wanted Fresh sugar plum, Korres golden goddess collection, Stila 24 K gloss, and 2 of the Lorac on screen duos. Hoping for a sweet haul! I’m thinking Philosophy next? LOL

    • the Muse

      Janine go for it!!!!!!!!! Lots of Holiday on sale at Philosophy stock up while you cannnnnnnnnnn! and I shall be over directly to roll around in your sephora order!

  • jenna

    i’m waiting on a massive Sephora order right now but i’ve already started my next list!! so far i need some philosophy SG in Pink Layer Cake and Too Faced blush in la vie en rose which I’m excited to use with the adorable mini kabuki brush that’s on its way!!

    i keep a “Beauty Wish List” memo in my blackberry that i’m constantly adding to!!

    • the Muse

      jenna u are going to love pink layer cake it’s a fav of mine and la vie en rose=AWESOME! aw that’s cool!!!!!!!!! I should do that 😀 sometimes I forget what I want to try!

  • Robyn

    is hopefully got job in topshop so will probably have a try of their makeup

  • jenna

    yay! now you got me more excited hehe this order may have to be made sooner than planned!

    i was a little worried about the la vie because my skin is tanned (i know, i know… i hope we can still be friends 🙂 ) and some blushes look so adorable in the packages ie benefit powders but don’t show up. do you have a swatch of la vie on here by chance?

    your reviews are so helpful! i rely on them for items to add to my beauty wish list and it also helps me eliminate the flops so i don’t waste my money!

  • yay

    i really want skin food products.. everyone seem to rave about them… they don’t sell it near where i live.. i’m hoping to buy some when i visit asia..

    • Michelle

      I went to Japan to buy skin food products, and the shop in Harajuku didn’t even carry everything! disappointed! They told me to go to Korea for better selection!!

  • Aimee Pan

    I think I’m gonna get the newly packaged Guerlain Meteorites.

  • Sofia

    I just ordered the Armani Face Fabric and the Eyes to Kill mascara (my ABSOLUTE FAVE!!) using their friends and family code online.

    They were all out of the blush I wanted though 🙁

  • Bonnie

    I need to make an actual trip to a Sephora store (I mainly buy from the site online) to pick the correct shade of Fresh Umbrian Clay Foundation for my skin. The concealer has turned out to be my HG, and so I am dying to see if the foundation is every bit as good. Also, I think I need to give Korres a little love this summer.

    Muse, I have to say that I am an Urban Decay believer now after trying the nail polish and the Summer of Love palette! 🙂

    • the Muse

      ha that’s awesome bonnie 😀 wait till u see UD fall 😀

  • dangster

    LOL i need some deodorant. I’m gonna take the plunge and pay $18 for Fresh Sugar Deodorant 🙂

    • the Muse

      lol $18 damn dangster 😀 that’s some expensive deo for your pits hehe!

  • Monroe

    I’ve read lots of good reviews (including yours!) about De-slick in a Tube and I’m dying to try it. I’ve got oily skin normally, but this hot Southern weathern and humidity is making my face even more of an oil slick. Here’s to hoping for results!

  • Anitacska

    Most probably Mac In The Groove. I want all the eyeshadows, all the blushes, a Stereo Rose MSF and possibly some of the lipsticks. 🙂

  • Colette

    My next purchases will be By Candlelight and Stereo Rose from MAC in July! I’m hoping my Chanel counter won’t have the fall collection out too soon so I can save up for a major haul there. Lots of good stuff is coming out!

    My mom bought the denim ink yesterday – it’s gorgeous.

    • the Muse

      colette can’t WAIT to get my hands on DI! 😀 and def SR from MAC 😀

  • Mara

    Oh boy, I’m going to IMATS Pasadena this weekend where most booths offer substantial discouns, so my next make up purchase will be a biggie. I’m hoping to snag Make Up For Ever’s Duo Mat Powder Foundation and a couple of their new Aqua Creams (Anthracite and Golden Copper are calling my name). Also, a few MAC eyeshadow pans and brushes, Graftobian’s concealer palette, Kryolan’s Aquacolor Interferenz palette and Urban Decay’s Ammo Shadow Box. It’s gonna be a madhouse, so wish me luck! 🙂

    • the Muse

      hey mara don’t forget to give Elessa a big hug and a kiss from me 😀 hehe! don’t forget about the new MUFE lipglosses and Urban Decay Fall will be launching there. You’re so gonna be BROKE!

  • Phyrra

    I’m not sure what my next purchase will be. Probably an eye makeup remover. I’ve been using Nyx Eye & Lip but I am SO TIRED of paying for shipping for it. I just hauled some MAC for my birthday (free overnight shipping woot!), and some Aromaleigh.

  • Jackie

    I’m really feeling the need for Illamasqua in my life, lipstick and blush!…but I would like to see it in person first. None of my Sephora’s have it in store. But then from what I’ve seen of the fall collection from Chanel, on Temptalia, I will def need to save up for that!

  • Ellie

    My next beauty purchase will be foundation, but I’m torn between Laura Mercier’s Mineral Powder Foundation and Smashbox Halo. Anyone have suggestions?

    • the Muse

      hey ellie 😀 haven’t tried either but maybe someone will reply to help 😀

    • Stephanie

      Hi Ellie, the Laura Mercier mineral powder foundation is AMAZING. I’m using it right now and it’s super smooth (almost buttery!), gives great coverage (very buildable), has a very natural finish (looks like skin) and lasts all day if you use a primer with it! Hope that helps. I haven’t tried the Smashbox so can’t say anything about that xx

  • womble

    well i’ll be at the airport so i’m gonna do some duty free beauty….

    stock pile on 17 va va voom mascara, omg its better then ones i payed £30 for, and its cheeeap

    maybe some new MAC lippies, or some mac, dior, chanel, eye shadows.

  • Nucleii

    Hmm..I need a night and day cream. At the moment, I don’t know what exactly.

  • Sarah G.

    I’m planning on making a Sephora run today (I love pay days :D) I was planning on picking up the Anastasia brow stencils so I can clean my brows up a bit, Stila all day water proof liquid eyeliner, Stila It Girl eyeshadow trio, and whatever else catches my eye.

  • Kate

    I’m really tempted to buy a high end profession hairdryer. My drugstore one tends to puff up my hair to a frightening amount.

  • Courtney

    Has anyone tried the temptu airbrush makeup system (or any other airbrush system for that matter) from Sephora? It intrigues me but is a bit pricey. I’m also horribly uncoordinated and wonder how easy it is to use.

    • the Muse

      haven’t tried it myself courtney but hopefully someone else replies 😀

  • Tohnia

    I’m going to be getting a UD palette (my first!), and the Sephora brand mineral makeup. The reviews on the site and on MUA are pretty good, so i’m excited. Also going to scoop up my Tokidoki palettes. 😀

  • jerseygrrrl78

    Curiosity and the recommendation of several friends has prompted me to finally purchase Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Foundation. Found it cheap on Ebay so if I don’t like it I won’t feel bad about giving it away, hehe!

  • Renata

    I’ve been trying a sample of Philosophy Microdermabrasion (2 steps) and I’m in love. Really impressive. I intend to buy a full size as soon as I can.

  • Ryan

    I need to get some more Shu cleansing oil and I’m thinking of getting a Bobbi Brown concealer and corrector. I’m debating on whether I want the UD Naked palette. I have so many neutral shades already it would be like paying $44 for the hot packaging. Not that I haven’t done that before, but still…..

    • the Muse

      ryan hell I’d pay for hot packaging and hate what’s inside but still so long as the packaging rocks right?! 😀
