Beauty Bits & Bobs
Ok, ok so the Grinch (or in this case the Muse) that Stole Valentine’s Day says that V-Day is such a terribly overrated holiday! Seriously, do we need one day of the year to tell people we love them?
But…I admit…I kinda dig V-day beauty! I secretly love when Sephora, Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, Avon, Etc…release little bits of beauty fun that’s themed for Valentine’s Day. I can’t deny I love the cute factor.
Taking into consideration the economy is absolutely depressing as hell I think we all need a little budget beauty Valentine joy to put a little bit of a smile on our face.
Soak away the stress of reading the news with Avon Bubble Bath in Chocolate Strawberry Truffle. Who doesn’t want to soak in a tube full of chocolate strawberry scented bubbles? Plus at $4.99 USD for 24oz you can’t beat the price! Snag some for yourself and maybe as a cute little gift for a friend this V-day season!
.69 cents for lipbalm? I’m all over it! Avon Sweet Delicious Lip Balm
is available in four flavors:
- Coconut Cream
- Decadent Cherry
- Luscious Berry
- Sweet Strawberry
Layer ‘em up to create a cherry, berry, strawberry, coconut smacking pout! Hey, for .69 cents you can’t really complain about the price!
The Muse suggest snagging some Valentine Gift Bags from Oriental Trading Company for $6.99 a dozen and stuff an Avon Lipbalm or two into the bag, with a bottle of Avon Bubble Bath, and a few Valentine chocolates and give it to a friend or two to make ‘em smile!
Cheap, affordable gift giving! Loves it!
Don’t forget to spoil yourself too!
Price cut coming at you pretties!
Check out the Stila Shine On Gift of Glaze Set at Sephora cut from $28 USD down to $22 USD sweet!
Jump ahead for swatches and the Muse’s babblings about this fine deal!
The Muse has LOTS of glosses and a good part of her collection is made up of Stila Lip Glaze! I love the packaging, I love the color selection, and I love the long wearing formula. Fab stuff, Stila Lip Glaze! I normally hate lip brushes with a passion but I’m regular fond of the lip brush applicator on Stila Lip Glaze. Twist up, slick on, and Bob’s your uncle! Beautiful pigmented shine! I absolutely adore I don’t have to stain my lips prior to use as the product is plenty pigmented to work on it’s own. It wears ALL day long as well which is a complete plus for lazy bums like myself who fail to touch up their makeup throughout the day!
Stila Shine On Gift Of Glaze was originally $28 USD for six glosses however it’s since been cut to $22 USD which is $3.50 USD or so a gloss. Can you seriously go wrong at that price?!
If you’re wanting to add to your growing pile of Stila Lip Glaze you’re going to want this awesome set or if you’ve never tried Stila Lip Glaze before you can afford to indulge in a set of six!
The gift set includes:
- Vanilla (Nude Pearl)
- Brown Sugar (Shimmering Golden Nude)
- Raisin (Shimmering Plum)
- Grapefruit (Frosty Pink)
- Apricot (Melon)
- Gumdrop (Bold Pink)
The shades range from cool to warm to suit any of your looks!
The Muse thinks it’s a rather awesome collection of glosses for a wee price tag. Pick it up at Sephora before it’s gone!
You come visit your Muse because you’re makeup obsessed right?
But you likely visit with Michelle @ All Lacquered Up to cure your cravings for all things nail polish!
Do help the Muse in congratulating her mate Michelle on her appearance in Glamour’s Beauty Blog!

Crack the whip ladies and check out MAC Cremesheen Lipstick Lavender Whip!
Yesterday you were privy to the brand new MAC Cremesheen Glass and today I bring you a sneak peek at a look of one of the newest shades of Cremesheen Lipstick in Lavender Whip!
I imagine you’ll want to get your mod on with this interesting lilac lip color with a creamy smooth formula that glides onto lips leaving behind a “mod”-like finish and a burst of Spring purple!
We fell in love with MAC Cremesheen Lipstick this past fall and now MAC is reintroducing the collection with some new shades and some old favorites. Watch your MAC counter in February for the release of MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in eight shades!
Now I’m off to figure out the best way to use Lavender on my lips…hmmmmmmmmmmm……..I aim to do Twiggy proud with my moddy purple look!
The Muse is a big fan of Lori Greiner as you may already know from my post, upon post, upon post of her awesome storage units!
A majority of my collection of makeup is stashed away in a Lori Greiner organizer or two!
On Lori’s recent QVC appearance she spotlighted one of her new Mirrored Wall Cabinets that I am seriously having a case of the lemmings for!
Looks quite unassuming doesn’t it? Wait till you see what it looks like opened!
Open up this mirrored cabinet and inside lays a spot for just about anything and everything in your cosmetic collection! The entire unit holds 150 pieces of makeup with spots for your lipstick, compacts, brushes, and more!
The cabinet is wall mountable or you can purchase a separate frame that will hold the unit in an upright position for placing on a table or vanity.
The cabinet comes in your choice of finishes (oak, cherry, or white) and is also available in a jewelry version for stashing away accessories, earrings, etc….
I’m dying to purchase the makeup one but I’m trying to be reasonable with my purchasing at the moment! If I do get it expect a review and a rave! It’s $78 USD and available now from QVC using Item Number H06285.
The Muse loves it!
Anything Lorai Greiner is ALWAYS Muse Approved! The Muse thinks she’s aces with her wonderful creations.
