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.

    just took the plunge on this yesterday (with I will have to report back. I have the BB cream and love it, but it does get tired towards the afternoon. I have heard good things about this helping as a midday refresher… ๐Ÿ™‚

        well it’s definitely moisturizing! takes a little while to set but it leaves a nice finish when it does. I am not thrilled about the applicator that it comes with — i’d rather just use a brush or my fingers. It’s going to stay in the rotation for sure!

    What BB/CC cream would you recommend for someone young with pretty good skin. I have combo/normal skin and am quite fair. For reference the Prestige BB cream in light is almost too dark although it adjust perfectly. I have freckles which I’d like to dull but not completely cover.

      Been reading Muse’s blog for a few weeks, figured Id finally chime in. Im new to the world of Sephora and high end makeup. And since Ive crossed over, Ive been addicted!!! And have become obsessed with Nars blushes amongst other things!

      Which leads me to a reply for you @Elizabeth – I have skin exactly like yours which tends to get a little dry towards fall/winter. So i wanted to try something new since I normally only use a tinted moisturizer or powder. Ive been using Dr.Jart+ water fuse BB Balm in the blue tube and its awesome. I also have freckles but this still lets some of them show through which i like bc it looks so natural and like my skin, only better! HTH

          Thx Muse! I love it (insert evil laugh here) haha. And I love your site, its come in hand many times with decision makers after reading your reviews and seeing swatches ๐Ÿ™‚

          I really want to pick up a couple of Nars eyeshadow duos and one or two of their singles and possibly the Sex Appeal blush which i cant find a decent swatch photo to save my life but it intrigues me bc its so light and im fair and im dieing to know if it will give me an etherial glow, like a natural flush or not… however ive heard that Sephora sends out $20 gift cards to VIBs plus a 20% discount for the holidays, can anyone confirm? Should i pull the trigger now or wait in hopes of a discount and GC?

          Oh and I just received my long awaited Nars Adult Content blush palette in the mail, goregous!!!!!!! I just want to Stare at it all evening!!!
