Spring is Coming or Is It Winter?


Spring is Coming, something you’d NEVER hear the residence of Seven Kingdoms saying.

Honestly, we got some early snow in New York but this weekend I’m hearing tales of weather in the 50’s! So perhaps Spring is coming but if anything I know that Mother Nature likes to play tricks on us New Yorkers so it might just be time to hunker down with a cozy blanket to wait out the long Winter ahead.

But regardless, once the Holidays are over (it feels like they already are?!?! OMG! When did that happen?) which is basically as soon as next week it’ll be Spring 2014 in the Makeup World!

And with Spring comes brand new collections to covet and drool all over. So far we’ve seen Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette as well as the Too Faced Spring 2014 Collection featuring the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette.

But what other collections are you looking forward to this year?

Some sort of drugstore pick? Wet n Wild Powder Play Palettes disappointed but perhaps they’ll have something else up their sleeve as we head deeper into the Spring season.

Perhaps something from a high end brand? Chanel’s Spring 2014 Makeup Collection perhaps for you? From what I’ve seen from that collection it’s very fresh and pink!

How about Bobbi Brown? She has a new Nude Glow Collection upcoming with three eyeshadow palettes to lem over!

MAC? MAC has a little of everything popping for Spring including Magnetic Nudes, Huggable Lipcolor, and Punk Couture but plenty more is on the horizon and even a Maleficent Collection to celebrate the release of the movie.

I have a feeling Urban Decay might surprise us with a Book of Shadows maybe!?

What are you MOST excited about for Spring?

Which brand Spring Collections are you most excited about? Do share!

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.

    I’m really hoping that Bare Minerals does another Ready 8.0 palette. I LOVE the two that I have, they’re tiny and portable with amazing colors and performance! I wasn’t crazy about the neutrals one they had in the fall (I love brighter colors!) so I’m hoping they do something fun for Spring… and of course I’d love to see what else Urban Decay comes out with. I picked up the Black Market liner set with my Sephora $15 off $50 certificate already.

    • Isabella Muse

      oh gosh, you know what, they didn’t even enter my head but yes something as wonderful as power neutrals would be lovely as I really liked it 🙂 I think you have the potential for something great for Spring if you recall Remix last year was really FUN! 😀

    I’m a few house south of you in Maryland and on Sunday it’s expected to be a warm and balmy 70 degrees out! While the warmness is unusual, it’s highly anticipated for me since I’m cold from the beginning of fall until the middle of spring. It is perfectly fine to listen to Christmas carols while basking in the sunshine =)

    the collection that I’m anticipating the most is the Maleficent collection. That beautifully evil fairy has been my favorite since I was a child and can’t wait to smear her magnificence all over my face! I was hoping that Sephora would continue with the princess line and Aurora would be in their plans, cause I would be all over that like nobody’s business! About 10years ago at Disneyland I got to meet Aurora and cried. a lot. I couldn’t even imagine meeting Maleficent, I’d probably faint.

    • Isabella Muse

      weather has been absurdly beautiful but it got cooler for Christmas at least 😀 How was your Holiday Ruth? 😀 ME TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! me too 😀 hopefully no reprootes as well! I surely am sad they didn’t do more with the line, only three princesses? sigh 🙁 How crummy! Snow White would have been nice too!

      • Ruth

        How was your holiday?
        for us, Christmas was great! we’ve had a pretty hard year and everyone had smiles on their faces, the house was filled with laughter so one couldn’t ask for more.

        Even with the Maleficent collection, even if there are re-promotes those items will find their way into my stash anyway. I have a problem! hi, my name is Ruth and I have a make up/book/shoe addiction and am not sorry about it!

        • Isabella Muse

          sorry to hear it Ruth…that’s never a great thing to hear sigh! I hope 2014 is better!!!!!!! All you need is love 🙂 and laughter. I smile my way through life girl, it’s the best medicine in the world! My christmas was, good friends, laughter what more could you want? My one compliant? It went too fast and New Year’s probably will go even faster. Sigh! Oh well! And we get older with each year…:-D

          LOL! not just ANY shoe though right? Hi my name is Muse I’m addicted to shoes, books, comics, makeup, OH and freaking everything else 😀 lol!

          • Ruth

            Oh no! not any shoe will do! Our favorite is made of canvas and rubber and can go with ANY outfit from formal wear to casual dress. and one can never have too many!

            My view is just like yours: smile, laugh and try to look at the bright side of things. I’m honestly glad that this year is coming to a close and a fresh start is coming with new experiences to expand my horizons, and new friends to meet. Hopefully if I can get my sh!t together, graduate college and begin my teaching certification.

          • Isabella Muse

            LOL amen sister amen! My New Year’s Eve dress will be paired up with a pair of converse! nothing else will do! elegance at its finest 😀 well GOOD luck my dear! You can DO IT! full speed head with your future adventures! May life always be filled with smiles and laughter and plenty of bright spots! there isn’t any room for tears!

  • Maddie

    OMG! I can’t believe it’s almost makeup spring time! Here in DC I’ve heard it will be in the 70s!! Hope you have a great weekend. Happy Holidays!

    • Isabella Muse

      Happy Holidays Maddie! Crazy weather right?! We’re back to cold again here though :-/

  • Angie

    Bare Minerals has some new stuff up at Ulta! A new 4.0, loose blush, lipstick, and eyeliners so far…

  • Joy

    This post makes me happy! 😀 Every year I get the post-holiday blues, where I’m exhausted from all the holiday activity, sad the holidays are over and dreading the shortening of daylight and increasing grayness. But this reminds me there is a lot to look forward to! <3 <3 <3 Thanks Musey 😀

    • Isabella Muse

      aw my pleasure! I get the Holiday blues too! I hate when it is all over…the clean up, how bare everything looks without the decorations up everything ripped apart in stores from sale! Aww it really is rather sad :-/

      • Joy

        I love that you mention how sad the stores look LOL so true! Double yay for Spring releases which will keep our spirits up 😀

        • Isabella Muse

          I don’t mind the long Winter to be honest! I love it! The dark, the cold, the snow 🙂 I love the Winter! but I def feel ugh after the Holidays. Honestly, I already have that little sense of melancholy because it already feels a little bit over! it comes so very fast. I remember as a child the month of December felt like it lasts a full year…as an adult it just whizzes by! if anything I’m still kinda in Fall mode hahahah! Oh well on with SPRING!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Joy

            Yes! That’s the word – melancholy! I grew up in Asia & even after having spent 1/2 of my life there and 1/2 in NYC winter still feels so umm, unnatural to me. All that layering & being so covered up, just ugh. On the other hand, soup! And hearty stews! There’s always silver linings 😀

          • Isabella Muse

            where in Asia? Wait you’re in NY? I didn’t know that or did I? sometimes my head isn’t straight! We should meet up for dinner or something after holidays 🙂 and yeah…! soap! and cozy blankets on the couch with good books hehe!

  • Joy

    Musey, the reply button is somehow missing from your last message to me so I’m just gonna write as if this is a new comment thread.

    Manila, Philippines! Where you can spend Christmas at the beach 😉 I would love to meet up with you. My only question is, would dinner be before or after we hit up Sephora? 😀

    • Isabella Muse

      I noticed that too sorry! what in the world?! 😀 sorry! If you see that again let me know. damn girl I wanna spend christmas at the beach haha 😀 So long as Sephora happens doesn’t MATTER TO ME hehehe! ;-D Email me anytime after the Holidays and we can arrange something that of course, includes Sephora hehehehehehehe!

  • Joy

    Will do! No need to apologize for the reply button issue, these things happen. In the meanwhile I shall be plotting to figure out a way we can have dinner *at* Sephora LOL.
