Stash Spotlight: Gransenbon Gran Blush

spotlight

Gransenbon Gran Blush is my go to product for soft, gently flushed cheeks! Which could account for why I’ve stocked up on a majority of the colors offered!

I think many of us stateside aren’t afraid of color. We aren’t shy in using a deeper, pigmented blush to make cheeks pop! However, many colors you’ll find in Asian brands are softer and lighter for a more natural, unmade up look. Gransenbon Gran Blush caters towards a more natural finish that, when I’m in the mood for it, is truly flattering.

The shades have a tiny hint of shimmer that’s barely noticeable and all the shades are soft and delicate even those that are darker only give the barest kiss of color. For the most part I do admit that the packaging with it’s soft pink outer case and cute dual compartment is what captured my attention at first but soon after I was thrilled over the color selection which is how I ended up hauling away most of the catalog of colors offered!

Here’s a little peek at my stash of Gran Blushes!

Lierac Paris Soin Eclat Express Masque Review

If you’re anything at all like your Muse your skin may be seeking a bit of extra moisture at the moment especially if you live in a cold and windy city. Although you know I’m a true Lushie I admit that sometimes I get tempted to try out new skincare which is the case with Lierac Paris Soin Eclat Express Masque. Considering I really enjoyed Lierac Paris Hydra-Chrono Extremel Balm I didn’t mine in the least giving this mask a try out.

Remember The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask? Lierac Paris Soin Eclat Express Masque kinda sorta reminds me of it.

The mask can be used in one of two ways. You can apply the mask and leave it on for 10-15 minutes and tissue off or you can apply and leave it on over night. Lierac scents it’s products quite nicely and this has a nice fresh, floral smell. The mask isn’t overly thick but has an almost gel like consistency.

All in all for use once or twice a week this is a nice skin softening treatment especially if you have dry, flaky skin however I’m unsure if I need this extra step in my skincare regime.

Clean Simply Soap Eau de Parfum

The Muse loves herself some Clean perfume so she’s pretty excited that the latest fragrance from Clean, Clean Simply Soap, will be debuting on HSN January 6th-8th. Set those Tivos ladies so you can snag this new scent!


Clean Simply Soap is a soft floral fragrance with a blend of Calabrian orange bergamot, Polynesian fragipani, Japanese lotus blossom, Damask rose oil, sweet voilet, and soft musk. Ok, so I admit I haven’t a clue what a fragipani is but it sure does sound good.

The scent, like all Clean scents, is an inviting comforting aroma that evokes the spirit of a soft bath robe, Egyptian cotton sheets, and a warm sudsy bubble bath!

Considering that Clean has been very adventurous lately it sounds like Simply Soap will be more of what the brand has been known to produce in the past, a good, “clean” scent.

I’ll have a review up soon but for now you can grab it at HSN using Item: 390-371 to indulge in just the scent or Item: 390-364 to get the fragrance and body lotion.

Which are your favorite Clean scents?

Eager to try Simply Soap?
