C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum

I freaking love the C.O. Bigelow Lemon line. The shower gel, the hand soap, the moisturizer…it’s all good news to me. So get this, best news evers, C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum. Can you say freak out!?

C.O.+Bigelow+Lemon+Eau+de+Parfum+1223444

WANT!

Click it for the deets!

So check it, C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum is inspired by my beloved, favorite Lemon Body Cream from C.O. Oh my god likey! It’s a pure, sparkling lemon fragrance that blends gren lemon leaves, citrus notes, and a creamy white musk. Sounds pretty much like what heaven smells like (I’ll write a mass e-mail when I get there one day so you know if I was right about that!).

The scent already has a near 5 star rating on the Bath and Body Works website. Likey some more! The price tag isn’t half bad either for an EDP which is $34.50 for a 3.5oz size.

I so need C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum in my life please. As much as I LOVE Loccitane Citrus Verbena it just doesn’t seem to last on me, sadness. So slap me excited that the C.O. Bigelow one has an EDP, maybe it’ll linger longer on me? Oh please, please, please!

The Muse is a listening and has heard a few pleas yammering for a review so as soon as I can get my hands on it, I’ll be giving the good word!

Anyone wants?

Tell me!

Fill In The Beauty: Lip Plumper

Fill in the below beauty blank with your favorite plumper!

FILL+IT+IN

Although many a beauty fan will say lip plumpers don’t REALLY work the Muse begs to differ. I’ve run across a few that I really adore!

lipstick+queen

Although it’s not your typical plumper I’m quite the little fan girl for Lipstick Queen Shine Gloss. It really does make my lips look HUGE and juicy looking! Likey!

Beauty Most Unusual: Cheetos Lip Balm

Mmm cheese doodles. Some people love ‘em, some people hate ‘em. I can understand the hate! Who wants their finger tips all orange and gross looking? Just one bite and you end up with orange crud on your finger tips that’s an absolute biatch to remove. Or how about the fact that eating cheese doodles kinda gives you a milk mustache in the bright shade of orange!

Cheetos+Lip+Balm+2

If you happen to fall into the lover category check out this fantastic new product that you probably won’t want to live without…

Bless be for cheese doodle lovers far and wide, the Muse gives to you Cheetos Lip Balm!

Cheetos+Lip+Balm+1

If you’re wanting to experience that yummy orange goodness without the calories now you can slick on Cheetos Lip Balm, lick your lips, and experience the joys of eating a bag of cheese doodles.

I love the cheese factor of this, get it, cheese factor! Ha I’m such a comedian.

If you’re wanting Cheetos Lip Balm I don’t have the slightest idea where to get it nor would I tell you if I do because the idea of a cheese doodle flavored lip balm should be avoided at all costs and the Muse’s mission, since she choose to accept it, is to keep cheese doodle lovers (and haters) from buying this blasphemy. Horror!

Beauty Babble: Survival Beauty

beauty+babble

Hey Guys!

I’m trying out a new category here at Musings called Beauty Babble. The Beauty Babble section will basically be a scenario of “possibilities” with questions and answers about what you’d do in situations where cosmetics would be needed!

For example.

Your house on fyressssss! Oh my god! What beauty item would you grab while running out the door! (might as well add this one into our Beauty Babble this week)

Fun right?

Jump ahead to see this week’s Beauty Babble!


fire

Your in a deep sleep, REM has set in, your snoring out of one nostril and drooling from your mouth while dreams of Colin Firth sweeping you across an English country side dances through your head! Suddenly an annoying beeping makes a guest starring appearance in your Pride and Prejudice fantasy, what the hells is it? Oh my god it’s the smoke alarm! You have to jump out of your bed and get out of your house (or apartment, parent’s basement, rental room, etc…) as quick as you can! You have to grab one beauty product! What would it be?

The Muse says concealer. I could probably live without the rest but I need concealer to cover up my scary puffy eyes, fine lines, and dark circles! I’d probably go with the Mally Concealer System, I figure I could pass it off as two products in one since it has a setting powder and a creamy concealer.

tropical

You’re on a gorgeous cruise, the weather is beautiful, you’ve been enjoying fun in the sun and plenty of eating at that never ending buffet (does the food every end?). As you’re waiting on that buffet line in your string bikini the captain announces you must abandon ship! Waiting life boats are prepared to dump you on a deserted tropical island. The captain happens to be a makeup junkie so he allows you to select one item from your train case to take with you! What will it be?

The Muse says SPF! As tempting as it is to say concealer or powder (imagine my oily face in that humidity), I’d much rather protect my skin with a good SPF, I’d simply die if I ended up all tanned and gross looking (the Muse no likey tanning). I’d probably go with Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection as it’s one of my favs!

moon

As you’re yawning through your work day and procrastinating terribly by reading beauty blogs you notice your favorite blogger is going to the moon! You read further to hear she (or he) is giving away tickets to the moon, whoa. Foaming from the mouth you eagerly comment and enter for your chance to go to the moon with your favorite beauty blogger (your fav beauty blogger should be the Muse btw plus as soon as cosmetic companies start giving away trips to the moon you know damn well I’m holding a contest for one!). A week later you’re contacted about winning but sadly you’re only allowed to take one item with you due to strict moon travel accommodations. What do you take with you to the moon?

I’d so take some sort of anti-frizz gel or spray! Imagine a no gravity situation? You’d be looking like Einstein as soon as your foot hit pay dirt! I’d probably go with Lush King of Mods, Soap & Glory Hair Supply, or some of that Sunsilk Captivating Curls smoothing cream!

Now it’s your turn. Put your self in all the above situations, a fire, a trip to the moon, and a humid tropical island. Now think hard….what one item would you take with you to those destinations? This Beauty Babble is all about Survival Beauty!

Post your answers in the comment box!

Have fun!

Musings of the Day: What Do You Conceal?

As a girl or a woman (I tend to think of myself as a girl, the Muse is quite like Peter Pan she may never grow up!) you probably conceal daily. Maybe you conceal your eyes or maybe a pimple or a scar….

What about your feet? Indeed. Some people supposedly conceal their feet. Yes, for serious they do. T!NTALIZE is proof that people do indeed conceal their feet.

foot+concealer+3

foot+concealer+2

foot+concealer+1


The Muse personally doesn’t conceal her feet but she’s somehow become fascinated with people that do!

Two chicas, Sidney and Allyson created an entire line of foot concealer to make your feet gorgeous and flawless. The concealer works to conceal corns, scarring, veins, and other minor foot imperfections. The Muse can’t say she’d be willing to try a foot concealer but the idea seems interesting enough!

concealer

Speaking of concealing things……what do you conceal? Your feet? Would you consider concealing your feet?

How about your eyes? Face? Tell me about it!

As for the Muse she conceals her under eyes but aside from that she doesn’t bother much. I never, ever cover up pimples with concealer and my foundation pretty much covers up any dullness I have on my skin! So a quickie swipe or three under my eyes is what I conceal.

How about you?

Share it!

P.S. It’s ok if you want to admit to concealing your feet, we won’t make fun of you…..too much.
