Tips and Tricks: Cool Your Tired, Dull Skin Off

tips

Dramatization:

You come home. You’re tired, you’re hot, you’re skin is dull, lackluster, and suffering from a long stressful day.

Ever have these days?

Here’s the key to perking yourself up after a really long day.

Take your favorite cleansing wipes, remove one from the package. Now get yourself a sandwich baggie preferably one with a zip lock of some sort. Place your cleansing wipe inside the bag and freeze it in your freezer.

When you get home from a hot day, pop the cleansing wipe out and let it thaw for a few seconds, now wipe your makeup and stressful day off your face!

Ahhhh cool, refreshing. Great way to distress!

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Turns 15

Donna+Karan+Cashmere+Mist

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!

WANT IT: Pop Beauty Lush Blush

Pop+Beauty+Lush+Blush+2

Pop Beauty Lush Blush was on sale a few weeks ago on ASOS. Gawd, the Muse is kicking herself for not getting it back than. She’s lemming it terribly. It’s such a cute little blush, I needs it in my life don’t you see?

Jump ahead for a babble and more pictures.

Pop Beauty has been releasing quite a few items as of late. For some reason upon their exit from Sephora I was scared they’d pull completely out of the US but they are very much alive, kicking, and open for business on their website. Bless be as I adore the line.

The new Pop Beauty Lush Blush has captured and held my attention as of late. The cute design has a sponge top applicator (common in Japanese blushes) and a nifty little flip top lid. I admit the rather spunky little packaging tickles me most but I’m likely leaning towards the interesting shade they have entitled Cherry Blossom (deep rosy red shade) as well.

The blush comes in three shades which are Peach Blossom (apricot), Cherry Blossom (rosy red), and Rose Blossom (pink). For the most part I’m leaning towards Cherry Blossom at the moment. My hand is just about ready to hit that submit button….somebody stop me please?

Available for $18.50 now from www.popbeauty.co.uk

As Seen by the Muse: Too Faced Makeup Brush Sale

too+faced

As seen by this Muse Too Faced is busy tweetin’ about a makeup brush sale? But when? How much? I want to haul!

Keep your eyes peeled on Too Faced for the deets (or wait until I hear the news and bring it to you directly).

A girl can never have too many brushes especially ones as soft as the Too Faced teddy bear hair ones (don’t worry they aren’t made from real bear hair).
