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‘.

    oh I like!!!! I got the black honey cream eyeliner stuff a few years ago and adore it.

    • the Muse

      isis I need that ;-D they didn’t have it when I picked these bits up!

  • Dee

    Got these last week…really loving the blush and eyeshadow palette!!!

  • Sara

    Gimme gimme gimme! I went looking for the lip stuff at the clinique counter and they didn’t have it. :(. Hopefully soon-ish! There isn’t a Nordstrom counter anywhere close.

      • Sara

        Oh really? Hmm….now to find one! I think there is one down in TX. *Or* I can try to find one next week when I goes to DC. Hey are there any cool Nordies deals on Clinique during the sale? I’m always torn between trying to make friends at the counter (so tough when most of the “ladies” are uppity dicks) and buying online. Usually you get samples when you buy online…

        • the Muse

          hmm not sure sara…check their website chica for store locations ;-D I dunnooooooo but maybe…could be a freebie in the works b/c of the anniversary sale ;-D mm like Clinique is soooo high end for them to be snobs LOL!

          • Sara

            I know! Last time I was at the counter she could barely conceal her disdain and boredom while I asked questions. The time before that I swear the chick would’ve thought she was draped in diamonds and I was some patchy-clothed, holey-shoed street urchin. “Pardon me, your majesty, might I have a look at the ingredients label, please?” *lol* Then mah purple-haired self wandered over to the Armani and Chanel counters in flipflops to drop some cash. Maybe it’s the hair. You think the hair makes me look low class? :p

          • the Muse

            hells no sara….they all act that way. You can walk in waving cash around like a fan and they still act snobby as hell LOL! so no it’s def not the hair, just that they all need attitude adjustments ;-D sometimes though you’re lucky enough to build up really great relationships with MA’s but something they can def be snobby as hell!

  • Steph

    Oh God, must have! I wish the stores near me carried this. Is it exclusive to Nordstrom?

    • the Muse

      right now at nordies only steph but it’ll trickle onto counters shortly I’m sure of it!

  • Morgan

    Eeeeee! They look so perty. Great fall tones. And I love the collection name! Black Honey. Waaaant. :begins counting pennies:

    • auroragyps

      Me too. I always wanted Black Honey, but couldn’t get myself to spend that much $ on one lippie. Gloss+lippie= awesome deal.

  • Tala

    Clinique’s really great for office-appropriate makeup, which I love now that I’m working! All those swatches look gorgeous. I might pick up the eyeshadow palette when I head to Duty Free. Thanks, Muse! 🙂

  • Sarah S.

    Man, I want that lippie… hauled the cream liner already, though 🙂

  • kiwikiwidragon

    want the eye palette and cream eyeliner. love the dual lip treat but i just can’t justify (nor do i have the room) for another cheek and lip item

  • Jessica

    Oh Muse! I’ve been waiting for something like this, since I was fourteen and spent my babysitting money on Black Honey almost lipstick.

      • Jessica

        LOL! It was 1994, and after reading in Vogue that Kate Moss adored it, I too knew I had to have it. The saleswoman didn’t take me and my pink streaked hair seriously, you know the whole “I doubt you’ll actually buy anything so you’re not worth my time” snub. I pulled my babysitting money out of my pocket and said Black Honey Almost Lipstick please. Unfortunately that experience led to Chanel to get Vamp and Metallic Vamp (still hoarding 3 bottles, and 2 metallic vamp lipsticks), which led to Dior, Guerlain, and the list goes on. I’m a full blown addict and proud of it 🙂

  • JoElla

    I love the shadows but they won’t work for me.. but I will pick up the blush and the eyeliner!

  • Enchantress

    no I am not taking it.. did not like @all. it just looks so simple and even drugstore brands have similar products…

  • Swimsalot

    Omg muse n Jessica
    I spent my babysitting money on black honey way back when. It was in the light green pot and really sticky. Loved it. Made me feel grown up.

    • Jessica

      Thank you for saying that! No one believes me when I talk about clinique’s green (and cheap-like) packaging of yesteryear
