liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter Review

Breathing new life into your skin is now quite cheap thanks to Avon liiv Botanicals Collection.

The Muse thinks combining a fine quality product with an inexpensive price tag is quite nice and she can have both with the new liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter.

Ok, so this stuff is seriously my latest obsession. Considering my skin needs as much moisture as it can get when the cold weather sets in, I’m all over liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter.

$10 bucks people! That’s right $10! Loves it.

liiv Botanicals has a whole lot of awesome going on with it’s brand new facial and body collection. The line is clinically and demagogically tested, suitable for even sensitive skin as a preservative-free and dry-free product. The collection is a holistic beauty care collection that harvests plant power to restore vitality to skin. Whoa. Count me impressed.

But aside from all that the more important thing would be how awesome it smells….gorgeous. It’s a combination of a certain freshness with a hint of floral and a whole lot of crisp ozone that combines to create a beautiful healthy blend that’s quite alluring.

liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter is an ultra-rich body butter that’s super thick and made for various skin types, especially dry skin! This moisturizing body butter immediately hydrates my skin and makes it smell quite pretty too! My rough elbows and knees literally suck up the formula while it leaves behind silky, smooth skin. The body butter absorbs easily without leaving behind a greasy mess.

Count the Muse impressed that a body butter costs as little as $10 USD and smells quite brilliant, contains good for you ingredients, and makes my skin super soft.

Loves it!
Alot!

Stash Spotlight: Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer

tarte

I like pretty much everything Tarte puts out but one of my absolute favs are the Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheers!

Tarte+24+7+Lip+Sheer+1

The Muse thinks that Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheers don’t get nearly enough love so she thought she’d feature them in a Stash Spotlight today!

For a very, very long time these were my go to item for a beautifully pigmented pouting smile. I used to use them with almost every single look I created as they are so moist, glide on beautifully, and are pigmented as all heck. At $14 USD I always thought they were an incredible deal with the quality. I’ve been thinking about how much I’d love it if Tarte took a bit of time out and revisited with these incredible balms and maybe introduced a few new shades. The Muse would be every so happy if they did!

Tarte+24+7+Lip+Sheer+2

Tarte+24+7+Lip+Sheer+3

If you never tried a Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer the Muse highly recommends nabbing one! Fab stuff, ’nuff said.

Loves ‘em?

Leaves ‘em?

In the Muse’s Purse: Silver Heart Lipstick Holder

Find out what the Muse’s lipstick is held in when in her purse after the jump!

I found this adorable silver lipstick holder that’s shaped like a heart in a cute little Asian shop a year or two ago. I slip the lipstick I’m wearing that day inside and flip it open whenever I need a touch up as the lid holds a mirror as well!

Musings of the Day: Packaging Rat

tag orange

When you buy new makeup be it MAC or anything else, do you keep the boxes and packaging it comes with?

Are you a pack rat?

The Muse normally keeps special items in their boxes. And sometimes she even keeps packaging for expensive brands, for example all my Givenchy blushes and shadow quads are kept in their boxes even if they aren’t LE. MAC boxes I normally toss unless it’s a special packaging like FAFI or Barbie, etc…

I used to keep Bobbi Brown in all the packaging but lately I toss it out even LE palettes I find that I toss the boxes which surprises me considering how anal I am about my cosmetic collection.

Crummy packaging, even if the item is LE, normally gets tossed. For example Urban Decay’s sometimes has cruddy plastic packaging on LE items and I just toss that out. I also do this with LE Japanese brands products such as KATE palettes that are LE…the packaging is just plastic so I normally toss it, same for Lavshuca.

I actually wish I can get out of keeping boxes and packaging because it’s such a hassle to store, organize, and even find items I’m looking for when everything is in little boxes.

I guess this makes me a bit of a packaging rat and a bit of a tosser depending on brands and such!

How about you?

Packaging rat?

No way! I toss it!

Tell the Muse!
