There isn’t any doubt in the Muse’s mind that when beauty lovers ask to have an angel sent their way they are talking about Thierry Mugler Angel.
Exquisite comes to mind when discussing Thierry Mugler Angel Perfuming Body Cream. Dropping $80 USD on a body cream may seem obscene but the cream is so rich, so complex in scent, so moisturizing, and so gorgeous that the indulgence of $80 will seem like mere pennies.
The many notes and levels of Thierry Mugler Angel fragrance lends a certain complexity to the scent that’s near impossible to explain. The name “angel” can be misleading or at least it can for the Muse as she was expecting a much lighter fragrance but in fact the scent is quite deep, dark, and unique. Notes of Bargamot, Honey, Dewberry, Red Berries, Vanilla, Chocolate, Caramel, Hedione, Helional, and Patchouli cocktail together to create a exotic and sensual fragrance. I’m not a big fan of patchouli and it’s a very dominant note in the fragrance especially during dry down however the other notes in the blend create a unique layer that morphs the patchouli into something a bit more passionate and exotic.
Thierry Mugler Angel Perfuming Body Cream is the perfect companion for layering the scent onto skin after using the perfume. The moisturizer glides on and literally melts into the skin leaving behind a softer version of the fragrance. Although the cream is thick it remains silky and smooth while absorbing easily.
Of course the Muse is a sucker for beautiful packaging and she simply loves the stunning jar that the cream comes in. The moisturizer comes encased in a large, heavy glass jar decked out in silver and blue coloring with glitter in the base of the jar and a star motif surrounding the front. The packaging lends as much beauty as the fragrance does and is completely vanity worthy.
This is truly a luxurious product and well worth every penny! I’m looking forward to adding the fragrance to my collection soon. All in all a rather beautiful and exotic product.

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.
Granted it’s not like she minds in the least to have hair comparable to Einstien but she’s come to the conclusion that old Albert could work this look where as the Muse on the other hand can not.
In my quest for all things cheap lately (you know we haz to be cheap with the economy and such) I discovered Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules aka weird little capsules that look like the latest street drug.
Although a majority of the time nothing touches my hair outside of Lush haircare and a few select e-tailer brand shampoos and conditioners I decided to shrug off my snotty little nature and try out Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules. Honestly, anything that promises to tame the frizz is always a welcome addition to my haircare regime. My hair is long, it’s wavy, it’s curly, and without proper care it does look quite like I stuck my hand into the nearest socket.
Surprisingly these little capsules do exactly what they promise which is tame the evil frizz. The price is one of the key selling points as for $2.99 USD it’s quite a nice steal. You’ll get 18 capsules which you’ll either use one or two of or more if you’re really having a frizzy kinda day. I used one and my hair was nice and soft afterward, frizz-free, shiny, and didn’t feel weighted down. My main concern when using new haircare is how it’ll weight my hair down. My hair is currently silicon free thanks to Lush so I take extra care when using anything else as once I reintroduce silicons or other additives into my hair it starts to misbehave. I was pleasantly surprised that merely one capsule which contains 3, 4 drops of serum at the most banished my frizzes and made my hair nice and soft.
If you’re looking for something cheap that won’t weight your hair down and will zap your frizzes I highly suggest checking this out. Not a bad deal on the price plus it delivers on the promise of frizz-free hair! I’m on the bandwagon for a re-purchase once I run out!
Damn that Tom Jones! I’d fling my panties at him any day of the week!
Fact of the matter is it really is cold outside! The Muse just got home after fighting with traffic and idiotic New York drivers. But she’s safe and sound in her house now. At the moment it’s a stormin’ outside and 15 inches of snow is expected to land outside. The good news is it makes it feel more like Christmas but the bad news is that the Muse happens to be way too old to go outside and build a snowman! Darn.
View from the Muse’s makeup room!
But she really doesn’t have to forsake that snowman….Lush has a solution!
There isn’t anything in the world like a really hot bath when the chill of the winter is howling outside your window. Forsaking the outdoor snowman for an indoor one in my bath was the way to go today! Meet Lush Frothy the Snowman Bubble Bar:
Frothy creates mounds of soft, fluffy bubbles (hence his name…froth…..bubbles…get it?) in your bath while scenting your hair, body, and skin with a mix of coconut, licorice, and vanilla. He’s quite moisturizing and after stepping from the tub you’ll notice how soft and smooth he’s made your skin! The Muse thinks he’s rather cute as a stocking stuffer or a little topper on a gift.
The only sad thing about Frothy the Snowman is you have to crumble him up into little pieces to use him in your bath but once you get over mourning his broken little body you’ll be happy to step into your hot bathtub filled with lovely, scented bubbles to relax and de-stress!
Crumbled remains of Frothy waiting to melt away into masses of bubbles! He’s a holly jolly soul and welcome in my bathtub anytime of the year but sadly he told the Muse not to cry as he’s limited edition and will be gone after Christmas but he may be back again someday!
Someone said it’s the most wonderful time of the year, the Muse thinks it was Andy Williams.
The Muse thinks Andy Williams is the best thing since toast and tea although she also thinks they may only tug him out of the closet when they need a little Christmas. You ever notice he pops up in the weirdest places? This year he was dancing around 34th Street during the Thanksgiving Day Parade! Yup…they def take him down, dust him off, and use him when they need a little Christmas around! Afterward they tuck him safely back in the closet until next year! They do the same for Dick Clark during the New Year you know!
Dontcha just want to go into your closet right now and search out your bestest Christmas sweater after viewing that pic? I know I do!
Well anyway the moral of today’s story is that the Muse thinks Andy Williams does a fine job of making it the most wonderful time of the year but she also thinks that Lush Snow Fairy lends a special helping of Holiday cheer to my shower, bath, and hair, making it a truly wonderful time of the year!
It’s a sad state of affairs that Lush Snow Fairy is only around once a year and like Andy Williams it gets tucked away and doesn’t come back until next Christmas so now would be a good time to stock up on as many bottles as your bathroom cupboard can hold because you don’t want to be without Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel this entire year do you?
What Lush has to say about Snow Fairy:
Sparkly pink, sweet-as-sugar shower gel for fluffy, fruity fairies
We thought that this cotton-candy scented, sparkly gel would be just the sweet surprise for small girls who like wearing party dresses and waving wands. Amazed we were when we found fully grown hairy men using it too. (They send other people off to buy it for them, but we know!) It’s a Christmas best seller and you know best! So she’s back. Stock up before she flits off to Fairyland again.
What the Muse says:
If you love sweet scents that are girlish and pretty this would be one to grab. It’s difficult to describe Snow Fairy and although it’s been compared to cotton-candy the Muse thinks it’s so much more! It has a bit of vanilla, a bit of a wicked fruitiness, and just the right touches of pink. The Muse concludes that if pink smelled it would have the scent of Snow Fairy attached to it! Sadly, I cannot say more about it because it’s difficult to put into words exactly what it smells like but rest easy as the Muse absolutely adores it and thinks you will too!
Snow Fairy is bubblegum pink with a bit of shiny gold glitter but don’t worry the glitter washes off easily! You can use this in your shower or to lather up your hair (oh my nothing like Snow Fairy scented hair) or if you so please a little squirt in the tub will give you tons of moisturizing, sweetly scented bubbles!
The Muse is telling you all about the virtues of Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel today because she thinks your holiday will be a bit more wonderful if you snag some of this great shower gel! Just like Snowcake it’s Muse Approved for purchase and well worth getting a few to last you and keep you sweet smelling all year long!
