Available Now at Musebeauty.pro is Lemonhead Los Angeles’ Glitter Paste & Pomade, $22 (.5 oz)  The brand was founded in 2016 by an LA Pro Makeup artist and gained popularity during its wide spread use at the Coachella Music festival. It’s described as a multi-textured glitter gel makeup ideal for eye, face, & lip applications. For you glitter enthusiasts out there, this post is for you. These gorgeous, glittery hues can be used to create a shimmering eye liner, or textured lid as well as be used to create a 3D lip.

MAC’s latest Viva Glam Campaign is in collaboration with actress Taraji P. Henson, and includes a new signature lipstick shade along with a matching lipglass. If you are not familiar with the Viva Glam campaign, every cent from the selling price of M·A·C VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass goes towards helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. It’s a great cause, and MAC has since raised over 400 million dollars to date!  There have been many collaborations with well known celebrities over the years, and I was truly excited about this launch. I am a fan of Taraji’s work–Empire fans, anyone? I truly think the shade in this latest launch is universally flattering and could work for just about everyone.

Smashbox Cosmetics recently launched a collection of seven portable Cover Shot Eyeshadow palettes, with a variety of colors to choose from. Each palette is priced at $29 and they range from sophisticated, bold, and to metallic. I really did not need another palette, but the colors in the Ablaze Cover Shot Palette really spoke to me. I could not resist, and quickly placed an order online. Besides, I was able to apply my Sephora $25 appreciation gift card towards it. I’m happy to report that I’m so glad I did!.

Happy New Year! Another year in beauty has come and gone. It’s now time to take stock and reflect on the past year. This year has been full of amazing product launches and releases, and I will be saving my top beauty favorites in skincare and beauty for another post. Today I want to share my top 5 beauty resolutions for 2017. I originally thought of at least 10, but narrowed it down to five, because I know I need to keep it attainable and realistic.

Morphe Brushes is a brand that I became acquainted with through my purchase of the limited edition and hugely popular Jaclyn Hill palette. I can recall how fast the palette sold out online and how covetable it was. I have been a fan of their brand since. They have an impressive assortment of both brushes and makeup that are of great quality at a very affordable price point. Their latest launch, the Limited Edition Morphe Copper Spice & Bronzed Mocha palettes has become another huge hit. It sold out quickly online the day of its launch, but stay tuned! According to the brand, a restock will take place due to popular demand. I decided to make a trip to the store since I was not able to purchase it online. Today I will be sharing photos, swatches and my first impressions of the Copper Spice or 25A palette. Kindly scroll below for details and swatches.

The countdown to Christmas has officially begun! Shopping for so many people can be a daunting task, especially when trying to stay within a reasonable budget. One solution to that dilemma is handcrafting your own thoughtful gift(s). One thing that I enjoy doing every year is crafting my very own DIY mason jar filled with all things beauty for my friends. Today I’d like to share this as a gift idea. If you are still scurrying around doing last minute shopping, I can assure you that this took me less than 20 minutes to put together once I had all the items I needed. I hope that you can draw some inspiration from this post. Kindly scroll below for details.

Tis the season for Holiday Lips! Today I’m compiling a list of some luxury beauty holiday lipsticks I recently picked up.  I was really impressed this year with the limited edition releases and the limited edition packaging that came along with these releases as well. I’m a huge sucker for packaging. It gets me almost everytime! Today I will be sharing swatches of these beauties for your reference. There’s some red, some nude shades, and even a deeper and bold holiday hue that you can find in Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Bad Behavior. Scroll below for details and swatches.

I can’t believe that it’s December already. Things are really starting to move at a more frenzied pace with all that this busy time of the year brings. There are so many things I want to review, and time has only been the only limitation. I do have a three week break on the horizon so I hope too be able to write more. With that being said, today I bring you swatches and my first impressions of the Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette. The palette was an online exclusive released on Cyber Monday at Sephora and I ordered it during the early access link I received for VIB Rouge cardholders. I had a feeling that it would sell out quickly, and sure enough it did. It’s an adorable extension of their popular Chocolate Bar palettes. Here, we have the White Chocolate Chip palette, which is a travel size companion that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand.

It’s almost Cyber Monday! There seems to be an overwhelming amount of beauty offers that awaits. It seems the minute I check my email for the latest update, there’s a new one awaiting in my inbox. I think I will have to exercise self-restraint and self- discipline as this is not good for my wallet. Not surprisingly, some beauty retailers are releasing their Cyber Monday deals a tad early. Today’s post will feature the exciting new Cyber Monday exclusives Sephora just dropped! At the time of this post, many of these items are currently only VIB Rouge First Access exclusives while it will go live starting tomorrow for everyone else.  Kindly scroll below for details.

Another item I picked up from the Sephora Vib Rouge Sale was The Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette. The palette first launched in October and I held off on purchasing it since I knew it was coming to Sephora the following month. This limited edition palette is created by beauty guru Huda Kattan featuring a curated set of matte, chrome pressed pearls, and 3D metal shadows. I am a fan of her range of products, specifically her lash line and liquid lipsticks, recently reviewed here, and I could not pass up this palette, especially since I was able to apply the 20% off VIB Rouge sale coupon towards it. I have had the palette in my rotation for the past two weeks and today I have swatches and my review to share with you today.

This year’s MAC Nutcracker Sweet Holiday collection is brimming with the most adorable packaging with festive designs in gold, fuchsia, and burgundy. This range is quite enticing. The presentation for every single piece is so beautiful and truly covetable. I visited the MAC store to take a look at the offerings available for pre order and immediately fell in love with the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lipstick Kit, which I will be featuring in today’s post. I am also currently conducting a giveaway for this kit as well on my Instagram to gift to one lucky winner. (See my Instagram post for details)

Hello everyone! It’s that time of year again. Sephora’s annual VIB Rouge Sale starts tomorrow from November 4-7th. Early access is granted to VIB Rouge members–members at the highest tier–so they can shop coveted items first. This highly anticipated event is an opportunity to stock up on your beauty favorites or finally purchase the high end beauty products you’ve been eyeing for months while saving money in the process. This is also the perfect opportunity to purchase coveted gifts sets that are limited edition and typically sell out fast. Today I would like to share the items that are currently on my VIB Sale wish list. Since I was able to purchase many items from the Employee Appreciation Sale last month, my list is rather small. I will also be sharing what I purchased from the Sephora Friends and Family Sale last month as well.
