Spring is just around the corner which means it’s time to toss out those dark, fall colors for something a bit lighter. Luckily, Smashbox Cosmetics has done the work for us by launching their Spring 2009 Muse Collection of beauty products. Designed to allow the consumer to unleash their inner artist, the Muse Collection offers a variety of colors that can be mixed as you please inspired by your own creative vision. Using your own bare skin as the canvas, many products include professional makeup tools to ensure flawless results.

The Bionic Mascara in Black Violet has a special engineered brush that gently coats lashes for a longer more voluminous look with just one sweep. The black tone has a hint of violet for a sexy twist and retails for just $19.

Can’t find the perfect lip color? Create your own with Lip Paints by layering together or over lip pencils in shades of Artiste (creamy berry), Virtuoso (creamy pink) and Luminary (creamy nude) for just $21 each.

Missing that spring crush but still want that summer flush? Try Blush Rush in Masterpiece (warm peachy coral) for just $24. Apply using Fan Brush #22 or Blush Brush # 16 for a flawless, makeup artist look.

Before you apply foundation, dab on Hybrid 2 in 1 Luminizing Primer to create a smooth base or wear it alone for a vitamin packed glow. The Bare Canvas (luminous champagne) is available for $34 and can be applied using just your fingertips.

Cream Eye Liner Artist Pencils in a set of 4 is available in shades of Lapis (deep ocean), Imperial (deep violet), Slate (dark charcoal) and Antique Gold for just $36 and can be worn separately or blended together.

And for the“Pièce de la résistance,” the Artist Eye Palette in Muse includes ten stunning shadows that can be worn together or monochromatic and includes an artist eye shadow brush for a flawless application.

A variety of colors, easy application and plenty of room to use your own creative vision, The Muse Collection by Smashbox Cosmetics is an easy way to lighten your look for spring without emptying your wallet.
