Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Double Balmstick and Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Shinestick

More news on the Victoria’s Secret cosmetic front with the introduction of two new Beauty Rush items.  You know they place those bins of Beauty Rush products at the registers for a reason.  They are meant to tempt and tease you into dropping $10 or $15 more bucks when you weren’t planning on it.   Two new Victoria’s Secret Beauty items are coming at you in those evil bins and each looks quite interesting to this Muse.

The first is the Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Shinestick priced at 2 for $12 or 5 for $20 (Mix and Match with other Beauty Rush bits).   This little lip treat is available in six shades and promises a glossy pout with a hint of color.  Count me curious and wanting to haul, let’s just hope it doesn’t turn out to be glorified chapstick.

Next up is the new Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Double Balmstick also available in six shades for the same price as the Glossy Shinestick.  This one is a peppermint balm for lips with a soothing aloe center.  This interests me the least as I’d prefer a bit of tint and gloss to my lips and not up for a splurging on a balm.

What’s the good word?

Think you might haul either?

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Cosmetic have been known to be a yay for me so I’m thinking two of those Glossy Shinesticks might end up in my cart.

Twilight Beauty Website Launches: First Impressions of the Line


As you read in my prior post, a new line of cosmetics has been recently released themed around the popular Twilight book and movie series. Might as well milk the cash cow with themed cosmetics. If you make them the fanpires errrr fans will come.

Honestly, I adore the idea of Twilight makeup. Hey, this is part of being a geek that never grew up. The idea of cosmetics themed around a favorite book of mine is always in style. Personally, I’m waiting for the WoW or Doctor Who cosmetic line but I’ll settle for Twilight if I must.

Jump ahead for more of my initial thoughts on Twilight Beauty.

The Muse bets any amount of money that you are wondering if she’ll indulge in some Twilight Beauty. To answer your question quickly without having to torture you too much through the babbling ahead I’ll say yes. If you want to hear me rant to do read ahead, if you’d rather just leave it at yes and wait for my reviews stop reading now.

Ahhh so you’re still here.

Here’s the deal. I’m very grumpy that they launched the site and are taking pre-orders for about 50% of the makeup. I’m an instant gratification kinda girl I am not wanting to wait until October for makeup k? If you don’t have it in stock please don’t proceed to flaunt it at me, make me want it, but tell me I have to wait until the end of October to have. Not cool guys not cool.

That’s my first rant…read more.

Ok, so I’m about to rant a little more here. Brace yourself.

I’m disappointed.

I’m kinda disappointed in most of the line. As I told you in a previous post it’s split into two collections which are Luna and Volturi. Hmmm who loves the Volturi? Anyone a fan? Yea well not loving that idea but ok. I guess the basic concept is lighter vs darker and more goth. However, I don’t see too many differences between the two collections anyway so I do believe they should have just left it at “Twilight Beauty” forget the entire Luna and Volturi concept.

Here’s the low down…it breaks my heart to be so brutally honest….absolutely nothing in the collection is a must have in my humblest opinion. Nothing stands out or shouts at me to buy it. I am a tad disappointed that it wasn’t something that wow’ed me. I honestly do not have a better idea for the collection but I just don’t like it as is either. Aside from the lipstick nothing else really grabs me as a must have and my total cart is made up of four items costing around $83…..The Twilight Beauty Blushing Creme has some of my attention but it honestly looks to sheer in the photos but it’s in my cart as I’m curious. I did see one color of Twilight Beauty Lip Gloss that appeals and one shade of Twilight Beauty Staining Balm. However, I can’t really see anything special or unique about any of the items on offer. I’m particularly disappointed in the packaging which isn’t quite living up to my idea of Twilight, dare I say it looks cheap?


So yes I’m kinda feeling all brokenhearted today….I don’t know what I expected but it wasn’t this. The good news is maybe after I decide on my final order and get the products I’ll be wow’ed by the quality.

What are your thoughts?

Twilight Beauty Yay or Nay?

So far my list consists of the following:

  • Twilight Beauty Staining Lip Balm in Rapture (Maybe Blush too)
  • Twilight Beauty Blushing Creme in Swoon
  • Twilight Beauty Lip Gloss in Butterfly Kisses (Maybe Myth as well)
  • Twilight Beauty Gleam Metallic Mascara in Panther

What’s your list looking like?

Indulging?

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Turns 15


My sis is absolutely in lust with all things Donna Karan particularly Cashmere Mist. For the past several years Donna Karan Cashmere is her signature scent of choice. Recently, I found out that the scent is turning 15 years old. Gasp! Who knew?

DK created the signature scent out of love for the luxurious fabric because she adores it and designs with it, wears it, sleeps with it, and uses it all year round. The Muse can appreciate that feeling as cashmere is such a gorgeous, posh fabric and so positively soft on skin!

The scent itself is as comforting and soft as the fabric with a combination of sensual lily of the valley, vanilla, amber, and bergamot. The line itself is so popular (not only with my sister but everyone else on the planet) that the collection consists of twenty different products including shampoo.

Happy Birthday Cashmere Mist! Funny as my sister’s birthday is in August too…how fitting!

Yes well I know you’ve had to listen to me biatch myself blue about how the Balm Cabana Boy mysteriously disappeared off the shelves of Sephora soon after I told you about. What the hell? It’s a total conspiracy they so didn’t want me to have this blush!

Yes, yes you guessed it. It’s available at Sephora! OMG! Everyone rejoice! All hail Cabana Boy! Thank gawd. I was liable to throw myself off a roof in protest if I didn’t get me some of this soon. The baby jebus finally heard my prayers.
