Sephora Moroccan Sunrise


I suppose the Spring isn't always about pastel shades. I can't help but think light and airy for Spring but that's not the case with most collections releasing this year and year's past. I imagine most brands aren't of the same frame of mind as the Muse and when they think Spring they think time for a "tropical holiday" and time to beat the cold and embrace the warmth of a warm vacation on an island somewhere with the sun beating down on our heads and the smell of colitas rising up through the air...oh wait...that's a song isn't it?


Sorry I meant to say the warm smell of tanning lotion!

Yea, well you're either an Eagles fan and loved it or didn't get it at all.

Moving on....

Sephora has embraced that warm, tropical feeling with it's brand new collection entitled Moroccan Sunrise.

The Muse say...whoa likey!


I honestly have no love loss for Sephora Brand cosmetics but I do generally love how hard they try when they do release an interesting collection so be the case with the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Collection, it truly is rather gorgeous.

The general fanfare is included with the release including brush sets, makeup bags, and the odd little cosmetic bit and bob such as a mirror and atomizer. However, what really caught my attention was the entire makeup part of the collection. It all looks quite nice and dare I say indulge-able. Is that even a word? Well I deem it a word, place it in your Musepedia of words and phrases this Muse uses.

I personally think they went a bit too far with the fanfare items and left the color makeup part of the collection lacking. We all know that the huge selection of Moroccan themed makeup bags will end up on clearance quickly enough so why bother releasing so many? They should have expanded further on the makeup line up in my humblest as this is really quite nice.




The collection is tiny as you can see and understand why I'm ranty now. It includes a gold powder, a beautiful eye palette, and a few lipglosses. If I were Sephora I'd have done some blushes, maybe an eyeliner or two in sunny shades, and perhaps some lipsticks. They actually did pretty well with what they did release however a blush would have been superb but hey we can't haz it all can we?

The fluff pieces:










I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thinking about adding that eye palette and bronzer too my wish list! Hmmmm....decisions, decisions...

What do you think of the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Collection?

Tell the Muse!

I really love the look of the compact mirror, and the makeup..although those shades do not suit me at all.
