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‘.

      • Cj

        • the Muse

          I just requested some samples…hopefully I can swatch them for you so you can decide from there ;D!

          • Cj

            Ahh that would be awesome!! <3333 so much <3 lol. I live off swatches since we don't have sephora's or any high end beauty places where I live… But they do have 2 walmarts! 3 actually there building another one close to my neighborhood… I'm scared 🙁

          • the Muse

          • the Muse

    • the Muse

      no date yet unfortunately but prob towards end of Jan/beginning of Feb.

  • K.B.

    I’m interested in the blue/green eyeshadow duo and the blush. And maybe the lip gloss pencil and the lipstick.

    MUSE! I JUST said I was on a no buy! Can’t you post information about makeup brands that I can’t afford/are not on my list of favorites? 😉

    • the Muse

      LOL sorry girl! go read stop looking at my blog. Brian is waiting for you ;-D!

      • K.B.

        lol I’m saving that story for the weekend. It’s supposed to rain for most of it, so it’s the perfect weekend to catch up on my reading.

        • the Muse

          gonna do some catching up too I’m still sick so I foresee a weekend in bed with books/dvds to keep me company!

          • K.B.

            Aww, I’m sorry you’re still not feeling well. 🙁 I’m replying a few days late, so I hope your weekend in bed has helped!

          • the Muse

            hey kb book rec in one of my posts today (forget which!?) you gotta read it, tattooed hero alert ;-D I’m feeling way better today, a weekend in bed is exactly what I needed girl! I was SO so tired and just really feeling craptastic. been ages since I just laid down and had a rest in bed ;-D was quite spoiling!

  • amy

    Pretty, but not me… I’ll likely pass on all the shadows, but we’ll see what happens after swatching, LOL. That blush looks promising, though…

  • Ada

    It all looks glorious and very pigmented – excellent for darker skintones, and lighter skinned women can blend and control their application. Good job Nars!

  • Tennyoceres

    This doesn’t look like a nice seas–[nail polish image]–okay, it will justify a swatch or two at Sephora.

  • Cindy Ramirez

    90s-esque? Have they run out of that many makeup ideas that they have to go back just 20 something years? I do love me some vibrant colors!

  • Tammie

    I’m interested in the blush, pink eyeshadow duo and the lipstick. Not sure if I’ll GET anything yet but yeah.

  • Nikki

    I have a nail polish from Elle that I got from kohls that looks similar to that one. I believe the name is dancing queen

  • 18thCenturyFox

    Totally bothered by Stella’s starved image. I would have bought Its a Mad Mad World for the name alone. Buddy Hackett heh heh..

  • KimMWC03

    I like this collection but I will wait for reviews before thinking about what I want. Nars’ new shadows tend to not be that great. That polish looks gorgeous and I love Nars’ Velvet gloss lip pencils but that one looks too metallic for me.

  • Suzanne

    wait a minute..whoa whoa whoa… Im an old person here and was in the 90s and it was all about brown undertone lipstick, and monochromatic face with one color story.. this is more late 80s. Am I missing something Muse?

    • the Muse

      suzanne, agreed, def not getting the 90’s vibe here ;-D lol I’m an old person too PS by the way ;-D

      • Tammie

        Muse!! You aren’t old!!

        That being said, you know my age…I wasn’t exactly makeup age in the 90s but even watching movies/TV from that era you can see that it’s brown lipstick at LEAST like Suzanne said 🙂

        • the Muse

          aw I love you too tammie <3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yeah I dunno where the entire 90's thing came from as I'm def not seeing it. Maybe slap a plaid shirt on this chick and that could do it for me ;-D

          • Tammie


            I can't pull off brown lipstick so I am very glad that it ISN'T but yeah, wrong. Plaid shirt would work though, I definitely wore that. See also: Tweety Bird apparel lol

      • Ruth

        me too! rocked the brown lippie with my coveralls, flannel shirt and chucks. my old azz is 36 and that model is so NOT how we did the 90’s.

  • Debster

    I don’t know about anyone else, but that promo pic makes me think there’s a lot of tape involved to hold everything together. XD

  • cat

    The colors are a bit too aggressive for me. I confine color to lip products, apparel, and accessories. I don’t need to look like a clown.

    Maybe I’ve watched too much Top Model but when I see an ad like that I question if that was really the best shot of the entire shoot.

  • Victoria

    Aurora & Muse, a little birdie told me The Nars Spring 2013 Collectiin will be available at Sephora late February & at Nars January 11th ‘ish!!!

  • Marni N.

    Seriously? Nars couldn’t come up with a better photo/model/outfit/CURVES to show off the new makeup? Haven’t they been seeing the news about overly skinny models? Sorry, that photo finds me getting on a soapbox. Love Nars, but sheesh.

  • Nina R.

    Please don’t criticize Stella Tennant’s physique. She has given birth to 4 beautiful children, so she is not unhealthy, just naturally very slim. Let’s learn to love all body types!

  • Kat

    I want the blush, the persia eyeshadow and possibly the pink duo eyeshadow..ohhh and I was was supposed to be on a no buy..OH well LOL
