I’m all for relieving my childhood and Demeter Fragrance has me covered for reminiscing about days of old with it’s Tootsie Collection!
Check out these old childhood favorites available now from Demeter:
I can’t help but sing when I see this bottle! “The world looks mighty good to me because tootsie rolls are all I see! Whatever it is I think, I see becomes a Tootsie Roll to me”….why do I have this strange feeling all my readers that are 25 or under have no idea what I am on about…
I rarely eat candy or chocolate but at least I can have both without the calories in a perfume spray!
These fine, funky, and fun fragrances are available now from Demeter! Click on over and check ‘em out!

As per my original sneak peek post at Bobbi Brown’s Bronzed Pink Collection today I am bringing you my complete review of the items I snagged from the collection.
The collection consists of a variety of beautiful bronze powders, shadows, and lip colors. I think this collection would be appealing to those of you that enjoy a sun kissed look for the Summer. I’m not particularly a big fan of bronzers myself but I’ve been experimenting a bit which is shocking! I’m brave enough to go out of the house wearing bright pink eyeshadow but when it comes to natural, neutral shades or in this case bronzers I find that I’m not so courageous.
I was lucky enough to get a chance to test out the metallic eyeshadows and tinted lip balm. I’ve been yearning to try out the tinted lip balm for a while now!
The tinted lip balms are a moisture rich lip treatment with a tiny touch of metallic shimmer. Three new colors were released with the Bronzed Pink Collection and I tested out two in the shades Golden Pink and Bronzed Pink.
Golden Pink is a rosy pink color with touches of gold while Bronzed Pink is a chocolate metallic shade. Both shades will look smashing with your Summer tan. I enjoyed the formula of these as they slick on wonderfully and leave beautiful, glossy color on the lips without being heavy, sticky, or tacky.
Although the swatches are bit sheer I am happy to report on my lips they were quite pigmented. If you desire a lighter look simply swipe the balm across your lips once. If you prefer a darker look just layer the color on for a heavier pop of color!
I got so happy and hyper about the Metallic eye shadows that I completely forgot to look closely at them to see if I could pop them out and use them in the Bobbi Brown Custom Palettes. Well duh!
I got two shade selections to review for you. Bronzed Pink which is a dusty nude rose and Penny which is a light chocolate copper shade.
Both shades have a satiny metallic finish. Don’t confuse the look of metallic with shimmer as these have no heavy shimmer or glitter. They blend beautifully and pigmentation is excellent. You can go really heavy with these if you please or do a light color wash. I haven’t tried them wet and it doesn’t mention wetting them but I’m curious how they’d look if I attempted that!
Again my swatches came out very sheer but when you see my FOTD you’ll notice how pigmented these are considering what a heavy hand I used during application.
I decided to contrast the shades when I did my looks. I paired up Penny eye shadow with Golden Pink lip tint and Bronzed Pink eye shadow with Bronzed Pink lip tint. Instead of pairing up the bronze colors together and the pink colors together I mixed it up a bit. I also tried my hand at creating a bronzy look on my cheeks instead of my normal “blushing” pink cheeks I’m known for.
Below I am wearing Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow in Penny on my eyes and Bobbi Brown Tinted Lip Balm in Bronzed Pink on my lips.

All in all a very nice collection of goodies from Bobbi this Summer! I’m still dying to get my hands on the Pink Metallic eye shadow palette! I’m sure a review for it is coming soonish from the Muse!

Sadly, a problem with Blogger caused all the comments to appear ahead of time but most people put their hardest googling techniques to work in order to get the correct answers to my question!
If you somehow missed it here were the questions:
Who is the girl below?
Hint: Mr. Saxon aka The *blank* once mentioned how her “father” (I use the term father loosely!) supposedly single handedly sealed the rift in The *blank* Cascade!
The girl is Jenny, the good Doctor’s Daughter! I used the term “father” very loosely as Jenny was created using some of the Doctor’s DNA. Sorry Who fans sadly Jenny was not created in the traditional sense and there was no hanky panky involved! The Muse arranged it so no sexual hijinks will occur unless I’m present within the Tardis. House rules and all that!
A little fun fact for the Who fans: Georgia Moffett is actually Paul Davison’s real daughter! Pretty awesome right?
If you filled in the blanks correctly and said the Master you’d be right! Mr. Saxon was an alias for the Doctor’s arch enemy, the Master (RSVP Roger Delgado! The one true Master in the Muse’s eyes!).
Although it hasn’t happened yet, the Master does indeed mention that the Doctor single handedly sealed the rift in the Medusa Cascade.
Yay if you got all the answers correct! I wish I had a SpinLash to give to each and everyone of you but sadly I only had three to give away but we always have next time right?
Congrats to our winners!
I know how patiently you’re waiting for me to review the Lavshuca Summer Collection! I’ve been SO swamped with everything else that I haven’t broken into the palettes yet! Gasp! Sigh! Rant!
Am I nuts?
But to make up for the fact that I haven’t written the review or done any looks with the palettes yet I thought I’d tease you with yummie images of both palettes!
Here you go:
Am I forgiven for being so behind on reviews?
You still love me right?

Guess what I got my hands on?
Some of Bobbi Brown’s brand new Summer Collection entitled Bronzed Pink! Excited? I know I am.
My love affair with Bobbi Brown continues from the Spring into the Summer with this hot new collection!
I know, I know I’ve said I hate bronzers but I couldn’t help but get curious about Bobbi’s Bronzed Pink Collection. Seriously, just think about it, bronze and pink…a contradiction most gorgeous don’t you agree?
Anytime I’ve ventured into the scary world of bronzers I’ve always had the yearning to spice up my bronzing experience with a dash of pink and lucky for me Bobbi thought the same exact thing when she created this collection!
I admit I wasn’t brave enough to venture into actually purchasing the scary bronzing powders I seen with the collection but I did get the best of the lot of items introduced with two of the Metallic Eyeshadows and two of the Tinted Lip Balms and I’ll be testing them out for you shortly!
I’m thinking these shadows and the lip balms are going to rock out really well with the new love of my life, Urban Decay Baked Bronzer.
The promo images are simply divine and the model is glowing with health and such a natural look that I’m dying to dupe!
