The weather isn’t quite right yet for the beach or the pool sigh. If you live in New York you’ll understand exactly what I mean as it’s not much of a Summer here in the Big Apple. However, this doesn’t stop me from thinkin’ up what I need for my beach bag or in my case pool bag as the Muse doesn’t do the beach to well (seaweed, sand, eek!).
So here’s a few items that are making a starring appearance inside my beach bag this Summer!
Everyone wants beach hair, everyone. Tousled, windblown locks that are soft, seductive, and sexy. Indeed, beach hair is where it’s at! A great item to toss in your beach bag for a full head of alluring hair would be Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist, smells just like tropics plus I just really dig on the name.
When you’re at the beach or pool you want clean, natural makeup that wears well and wears long. Morgen Schick Cheek and Lip Stain is my go to for long wearing color on my cheeks which is waterproof and incredibly flattering for a sunkissed glow!
If you’re at the beach and you’ve SPF’ed yourself to death as is the Muse’s routine you probably won’t get much of a tan but you can flatter your pale white skin with hints of iridescent pink on face, eyes, and cheeks with a dollop of Eyeko Cream!
Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheers used to be my all time favorite lip treatment. Don’t overlook these little tubes of pigmented joy for a Summer lip look that’s natural and laced with SPF.
Keep your hair conditioned and protected from the sun with Blossom Under Cover Conditioning Mist with SPF. Frizz be gone!
Eyeko Face Off Wipes aren’t great for removing a full load of face makeup but they are nice for toting around in your purse and freshening up your face with. Each box contains 10 individually wrapped wipes!
A little touch up of cooling mist for your face is always a pleasure when sitting out in the hot sun. Pack up some Evian Mist in the travel friendly can to mist your skin with to keep it fresh and dewy!
I’m the first one to admit that Loccitane Citrus Verbena Summer Fragrance tends to not linger very long however I find that in the Summer heat it manages to give off a very subtle, fresh lemony scent that I find rather ideal for beach or pool lazying!
Give your face a kiss of sun with Eyeko Face Tint! Amps up your Summer tan or gives your pale white skin a touch of Summer sun.
Hope you enjoyed my picks for hauling in my beach bag this Summer!
What are some items you stash in your beach bag?
Tell the Muse!
I’ve been seriously trying to convince myself all day to just say no to Eyeko Lip Gloss Tins! Oh my god the cuteness is burning my eyes!
Three brand new scented lip balms in cute little tins are a Muse’s downfall!
I’m not sure what’s tempting me more the fact that they are available in flavors like cherry, cupcake, and rose or the fact that Eyeko is offering free shipping on every order.
I hate how you tempt me Eyeko! Not cool, not cool at all!
Each balm is loaded up into a cute little tin and it’s £4 price tag is just as sweet!
Snag ‘em now by visiting Eyeko
As for the Muse, she’s sitting on her hands and trying to show some restraint!
Did you know the Muse likes a bit of sparkle, shimmer, and shine? Obviously right?
Put a tiny bit of sparkle into your looks with Eyeko Sparkle Powder! An ickle pink cardboard box holds a deliciously candy scented powder puff that’s loaded up with iridescent sparkling powder that can be used on face, cheeks, and if you so please puff some onto eyes!
I’ve been meaning to review this since I got my order late Summer sheesh can you see how behind I am with reviews? Bad Muse! But something good does come out of it considering that the holiday is upcoming and I think many of us like a bit of sparkle for this time of the year so here in is an ideal little solution.
The sparkle is in the puff so it’s pretty much mess free! Simply dab the puff onto the places where you’d like a bit of shimmer and you’re good to go! The scent is a vanilla cotton candy blend that’s quite pleasant and girlish!
I think for the most part the appeal is in the packaging in this case as the puff and little box is too adorable! I do think that the price tag is a bit expensive considering it’s price tag of £5. But hey I love shimmery bits and bobs so I’m happy to have this in my stash!
If you’re interesting in nabbing this you can get it now with Free Worldwide Shipping from Eyeko!

Eyeko’s new Touch Up & Glow Highlighter is now a permanent fixture in the Muse’s makeup bag!
This cute highlighter comes in a tidy and neat click pen applicator for easy application that’s mess free and great for toting around for quickie touch ups on the go! The highlighter is a flattering pink shimmering shade that should suit most all skin tones.
You can use the highlighter in several ways one of which happens to be as a brow bone highlighter. I admit that when I prep my eye I do sometimes forget to concentrate on the brow bone this makes it simple! Swipe a little smidge on your brow bone, blend, and you’re left with a beautiful luminescent shimmer.
You can also use this on cheeks bones, as a light eyeshadow application for a quick eye look, as a liner for your bottom lash line for a bit of sparkle, the possibilities are endless!
I personal like toting around with me for swiping across my cheeks bones to add a bit of lighter and sparkle to my face when my makeup is wearing off, it does a fine job of freshening up my complextion!
Did I mention the price can’t be beat at £5? I’m sticking a Muse Approval on this for purchase. Simplicity rules my makeup world and this makes for a wonderful little addition to my makeup bag for quick touch ups on the god!
You can get yours from the Eyeko UK website (Yes, they ship to the US).
The Muse is loving Eyeko Touch Up & Glow Highlighter!

Eyeko Touch Up & Go Concealer
Eyeko Face Off Wipes Review
Wow I’ve covered ALOT of concealers these past month haven’t on? And guess what? I’m still going strong and bringing you a brand new batch of concealer reviews this week!
If you missed my introduction please see my Good, Bad, and Great Concealer post to see what’s been reviewed so far!
Today I’ll be reviewing Eyeko’s Touch Up and Go Concealer which promises to wake up my eyes and put my blemishes to bed. I don’t use concealer to conceal blemishes so I guess under the eyes it will be!
Does it deliver on it’s promise?
Although the packaging is super cute, and the price is just right, plus the fact it comes in a click pen makes the Muse happy doesn’t mean that it’s an awesome concealer. The bad begins when the product is only available in one shade…uh oh…not good. The worst begins when you figure out what an unflattering nude, beige, slightly peachy combination it is.
Although it’s pigmented enough to conceal dark circles brilliantly well I felt like the color did nothing for my eyes. The color matches my skin perfectly however speaking for myself and I’m sure many others prefer concealer a shade or two lighter than your foundation. In this case the concealer matches the tone of my skin and does nothing for brightening or waking up my eye area. Although it does conceal my dark circles it fails to create a fresh, awake look and I blame that on the color. The formula is moisturizing and dense while blending very well however the wear is two hours if you’re lucky. It contains a blend of Jojoba for moisture and a soft touch.
Sometimes the Muse gets suckered in by cute packaging and can convince herself the product is really good because she’s so in love with the uber sweet packaging however in this case it’s just bad.
As I said it is inexpensive at £5 and it’s probably good if you don’t mind the color or the lack of wear but personally I didn’t like it.
Thumbs down on this one.
It’s a trash and not a stash!
