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‘.

    gotta say I’m tickled to see stick foundations making (another) comeback! I used to love the ones by Almay and L’Oreal back in the day…. I may have to invest in one (or 6) for fall… 🙂

    You gonna try it out and review, Muse? 🙂

    I bought this two weeks ago in Chicago at a Sephora store. I really like this stick foundation! Long wearing and matched my skin tone really well.
