So Many Lovely Chats Happened this Week!


Happy Friday!

So many wonderful chats happened this week! We expressed our love and our hate for mineral makeup and we got down and dirty about our insecurities and how comfortable we or aren’t when heading outside without makeup.

It’s always such a pleasure speaking to you all. Just so you know, I think you’re all beautiful!

So, Sephora Play, finally right? When they first introduced Sephora’s new beauty box subscription I was shocked New York wasn’t one of the first states to get it. Because, you know, as a New Yorker I feel somehow entitled to everything first! It’s like, “Well, Sephora Play isn’t available for New York” and I’m all like, “BUT IT’S NEW YORK DAMN YOU!” Typical New York self entitlmenet issues.

I’m not a beauty box kinda girl! I love Memebox but I got a little carried away with it and I noticed I wasn’t using everything I got so it was like, “What’s the point!?” so I stopped buying them for a while. I admit I did just subscribe to Universal Yums! I have a super sweet tooth for sweets and crisps from different countries (especially the UK and the Netherlands) so this box is awesome for me. It basically sends out a selection of sweets, crisps, etc..from a different country each month! I just got Poland yesterday! I was going to do an unboxing post on Musings of a Muse and I changed my mind because it’s SO NOT makeup!

Anyway, the weather is sunny and it’s going to be like that all weekend here in Gotham! I can’t wait to leave my office today and breath freedom ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great one!

See ya Monday!

P.S. I need to track down the rest of the Jordana Made to Last Liquid Eyeshadow! They make my eyes look amazing! UGH! NEED MORE ASAP!

P.S.S. Strawbery Letter 23 is my ear worm today so I’m passing it off to you!


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‘.

    I like that song. Thanks for sharing, Musey girl. Very relaxing ! After the week we had, we too have a lovely weekend of full sun and no rain or snow for a week. Spring has sprung again. xoxox ๐Ÿ™‚

      aw my pleasure Blee sorry delayed reply ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    Well, those of us in NJ usually get things after you NYers are done with them, so welcome to that feeling! (BTW I was just in an ELF store and they now have the Dior Lip Glow dupe in peach and this dark, purple-plum color now too. Actually, it sorta reminded me of that Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick that was that sheer, grayed-out purple, though not as shimmery.)

    • Isabella Muse

      awww sorry! Oh interesting! I need to check out the peach! Thanks Kristin!

  • Dee

    This song is exactly what I needed today! Awesome beauty articles plus music that grooves – what more could I ask for?!

    I received a footcardigan.com sub for my birthday this year and while I’m not the subscription type, I may renew this. One pair of (funny,unique) socks every month. And maybe now this. Socks + candies. TLF.

    • Isabella Muse

      I just checked that out! Too cute! A sock subscription! Jeez, now I’ve seen it all haha!

    Oh! That sounds nice! I love trying sweets and junk food from other countries, in particular the U.K. and Japan. Skosh box does Japanese snacks.
