We might all be stuck in the house right now and it may be literally snowing in May but Summer is coming even though it feels like ages away! It’s been pretty cold here in Gotham. We’ve had heavy winds, rain, and yes, a bit of snow too. Oddly enough, the start of April was very promising with beautifully warm weather but soon enough it changed into cold wetness which is continuing into May. I sure hope Summer gets here soon and with the warmer weather.

Here’s a few new makeup and beauty picks to get you in the mood for Summer 2020 Collections!

NARS Orgasm Eyeshadow Quads $52
There are not one but two Orgasm Eyeshadow Quads available for Summer 2020. The lighter of the two palettes is available now and includes golden shimmer, light pink champagne, matte coral and light cocoa shades. The darker of the two releases May 13th and includes pink rust shimmer, sparkling amber, dusty rose matte, and black with red shimmer.

NARS Orgasm X Cheek Palette $42
Speaking of Orgasm there’s a new shade of Orgasm Blush called Orgasm X that released a few short months ago. This new cheek palette from NARS includes that new shade as well as Orgasm Highlighting Powder and the original Orgasm Blush!

NARS Mini Orgasm Eyeshadow Palette $25
Tired of all the Orgasm yet? I’m not. It’s so my shade! This mini eyeshadow palette contains six shades inspired by Orgasm Blush! Shades include:

  • Maximum Pleasure
  • Full Moon (metallic pale pink)
  • Danger Girl (matte coral)
  • Wild One (metallic golden pink)
  • Pattaya (sparkling iridescent copper)

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 45 $52
SPF is a must all throughout the year but especially during the Summer when you’re outside a lot more. Peter Thomas Roth’s newest SPF 45 is a cream to water formula that protects skin as it hydrates with a 30% Hyaluronic Acid Complex.

Nudestix Sun & Sea Nude Beach Palette $75
I dunno about you but I’m pretty guilty of hauling these Nudestix Sets when they launch. I just really like the creamy, easy to apply application of the pencils! This particular one contains 3 eyeshadow pencils, a bronzer, two lip and cheek pencils, a sharpener, pouch, and travel tin! All in fresh Summer shades!


  • Magnetic Luminous Eye Color in Cote D’azur and Sunrise Star
  • Magnetic Matte Eye Color in La Isla and Desert Sun
  • Nudies All Over Face Color Bronze in Beach Babe
  • Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm in Babe and Crave

Makeup Revolution Heatwave Shadow Palette $25
I wonder if Summer is going to overwhelm us with new eyeshadow palettes! I haven’t seen anything yet but this Makeup Revolution one will get you in the mood for the warmer weather with a ton of warm, sizzling, heated shades!

MAC Bronzer Foiled Eyeshadow $26
MAC’s early Summer 2020 Collection has launched (don’t worry there’s more to come) and the eyeshadows are what got me excited. Sand Tropez is a shade I’ve added it to my Summer list! It’s a great taupe-y brown that will get you a lovely bronzed eye look!

Becca Own Your Light Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter $38
Speaking of all these Orgasm shades def has me hoping that Becca’s new Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Own Your Light will be a pretty golden peach!

Ulta Lip & Cheek Color Stick $10
If you’re wanting to multitasking your way through Summer these new creamy blush sticks can be used on your cheeks and your lips!

I Heart Revolution Tasty Peach Palette $15
If Too Faced hasn’t worn you completely out with peach all the things this affordable little palette from I Heart Revolution might catch your eye with it’s assorted shades of corals, peaches, and pinks!

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.

    The PTR looks interesting. I got the original in a set with the cleanser when it first came out. How do you think they will balance the hyalaronic moisture with the SPF. My SPF”s tend to leave a grey cast that I notice outside around my hairline.

  • Diana

    I might have to give Nars another try after I hated that metallic cream palette last year. These are nice. But it’s the Mac foiled eyeshadow that caught my eye….Nudestix are great too. I love anything bronze.

    It has been cold&gloomy in the N.Y. area, like we are 3 weeks behind weather wise.

    • Isabella Muse

      Yeah, NY weather has really blown. It’s been so cold and rainy. Weirdly we had some good weather early in April and suddenly it all went to hell! Where in NY are you?

      • Diana

        I’m a minute over the N.Y. border in Fairfield County, CT (Ridgefield, like a N.Y. suburb, lots of commuters to NYC) I’m a native N.Y. girl. It did go to hell didnt it? Saturday was amazing to see the trees dusted in snow! But it’s the constant wind&cold air in between a nice day thats I’m in a coat one day then shorts the next haha

        When its ok to and its nice out, we have to visit that aromatherapy oil shop in Danbury that you reviewed last year! I’ve gotten some beautiful scents from her.

        • Isabella Muse

          Cool! I’m a native as well! bred, born, raised! East Coast weather has been weird for a while now though hasn’t it? I remember when I was a kid we’d have snow for Christmas and Easter we’d have on light dresses because the weather was finally warming up. Now it’s either steaming hot or freezing cold. This morning the wind was blowing hard now we have beautiful sun! It’s like WTF mother nature. She’s amazing isn’t she!? Her perfumes are fab ;-D I’m glad you’re enjoying her stuff!

          • Diana

            Exactly! There was a certain order to the weather. I hate the steaming hot so I hope this May cold spot will delay it and give us a real spring! It’s back to windy here, its our turn now A Torchwood Season 2 night for me. Enjoy a great night! Think I’m going to get the Mac Sand Tropez, thanks for the post today!

          • Isabella Muse

            We’ll likely see spring in June which I’m fine with tbh as I don’t like super hot humid weather either ;-D YEAH! Have fun! I should rewatch torchwood, that would be a good binge right now ;-D My pleasure! It looks like a great shade. Thanks for commenting 😀
