An artist-inspired, eye shadow palette that offers advanced blending with seamless color transitions.

“Eye shadow palettes, with their flat surfaces and defined borders, can be so confining. I wanted to curate a collection of eye shadows with a versatile, continuous spectrum.

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 was just at Sephora today but didn’t see these beauties. Checking them out for sure next time.

  • Jamie

    Oh gosh! There are more options than I thought, they’re all so beautiful! I’m regretting my one product a month limit I set for myself for the year 🙁

  • dgalvez

    I bought the Infinity one when it came out at Barneys a few months back and I love it!

  • Bonnie S.

    Oh my! These look good enough to eat. Though I have enough eye shadow palettes to stock my own Sephora, I will buy one of these delicious beauties. Cannot resist!

  • Sahily

    I went to sephora online and I’m a VIB rouge but the it says “coming soon” do you know the actual release date? Love your blog!!!

    • Isabella Muse

      the 19th from hourglass directly shaily I believe is the date so they should be available shortly for VIBers! Did you check today!? THANK YOU! flattered <3 🙂

      • Sahily

        I checked as soon as I read your email this morning. So, yes I checked this am. That’s the first thing I do when I see an email from you!
        I’ll keep checking and stalking the sephora website.

        • Isabella Muse

          I’m sorry dear! I just checked too! nada! officially the 18th it looks like it’ll launch on sephora. damn! really wants 🙂

          • Isabella Muse

            sorry girl! I feel your pain! my pleasure! It’s ok! the 18th is around the corner 🙂

  • Melanie

    Just when I told myself no more eye shadow palettes. I did see this on instagram a few months back, but only one palette. Now that several are out there I will of course give in. So glad these will be part of the permanent line as I see 3 I am in love with…..so 1 a month I shall justify somehow. Really loving the Hourglass line.

  • Tracy

    This is the most beautiful piece of makeup I’ve ever seen ! It’s probably very dupable, and I have enough eye shadows to paint my whole face for the rest of my life, but I want all of these ! what to do !!!

  • celine D

    These look fab! Hubby gave me a gift card from Sephora for Xmas . Bingo!
    Will be getting one or 2 of these babies !

  • Traci

    These are so gorgeous! I want all of them. I don’t think I would even want to use the eye shadow for fear of messing up the palette.

  • Jai

    OY VEY!!!! I want to hear reviews before I buy. This is definitely not helping my no buy

    • Tara

      Have you been able to find swatches? I have been looking everywhere for the swatches of exposure! 🙁

  • Lori P

    I just won a $50 GC for Sephora and I want everyone of these but I will limit myself to one…or two. Now is the hard part, deciding which one to get first because I will probably get all of them eventually.b

  • AnniLau

    We wants them all, my Precious.

    (Also, you have the same description on Atmosphere and Obscura. Sephora has Obscura listed as “(Earth Tones) – cream, smokey brown, rose gold, coffee, cool bronze”.)

  • Rachel R.

    These are so breathtakingly beautiful. I would worry about the colors getting mixed into each other with use, though.

  • Renu

    Chocolate sauce poured over ice cream… I WANT these, especially the Olive Green and the Rose ones. Waiting for your swatches.

  • Annilau

    These are now available for VIB Rouge. I was going to wait until pay day to order my favorite (Obscura) but, well, I didn’t.

  • Tara

    Has anyone found swatches of exposure? really interested in those plums for my brown eyes 🙂
