WANT: Lush The Strokes Hair Treatment

Ooooooooooo looks what’s coming back to Lush!

lush+the+strokes

Welcome back gorgeous!

The Muse absolutely adores Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff Eaze and she welcomed it with open arms into the Lush haircare family however with it’s release the Muse had to bid farewell to her favorite hair treatment, The Strokes.

But it’s back!

Lush has introduced The Strokes back into the Retro Lush Catalog and the Muse is all about stocking up on a few and stashing them in her fridge! The Strokes tames my curls and adds tons of shine and body! It smells fresh and citrus like and leaves my hair scented as such for days and days and days after using!

To use The Strokes simply slap a heaping amount on dry hair and slip on a shower cap or wrap your head in a towel. The Muse normally runs a towel under extremely hot water, rings it out, and wraps around her with the treatment on. I leave it on for about an hour although they suggest 20 minutes or so. After the hour is up I rinse off and shampoo (no conditioner required) and I’m left with smooth, soft locks that remain as such for at least a month!

Best hair treatment evers!

The Muse adores The Strokes and is happy for it’s return! Remember kids Lush Hair Treatments only last 3-4 months so use them in that time or they’ll go bad!

Snag yours from Lush for $17.95 USD per a pot!

What’s your fav Lush hair treatment?

Remember The Strokes?

Product Musings: MAC Pigment Kitschmas

mac

The Muse likes to think it was kismet when she met up with Kitschmas.

MAC Pigment in Kitschmas is one of my first and favorite pigments! The Muse adores the soft lilac color and loves how it lends a certain frosty feel to her lids!

MAC+Pigment+Kitschmas4

If you favor light shades of purple or just purple in general this is well worth picking up. The formula is one of the flakier pigments from MAC which in turn gives it a nice hint of shimmer. Use it by itself or pair it up with a darker purple for a gorgeous contrasting eye look!

Pieces of Life: The Gossip Girl Edition

I only got the chance to watch the first five minutes of Gossip Girl this week since the Muse has been very, very, very, alot busy but did you check out who’s starring as Chuck Bass’s uncle?

musescrush

Well, hello gorgeous!

Muse, who is this love muffin you speak of?

Tis my future husband Desmond Harrington of course!

Desmond played Joey Quinn in this season of Dexter and did a brilliant job of it might I add. Now the Muse normally doesn’t fall for manly men such as Desmond but she must say that his accent sends shivers down her little spine. Desmond was born in Georgia but grew up in the Bronx and that boy has the accent to prove it. Loves it! I don’t think I’ve seen him in a role where he’s fully dropped his accent so it’s always rather fetching to watch him work. Growing up in New York I have a deal for the accents around these parts…hells you should hear my friend Marc his accent is harder and rougher than Desmond’s!

And hello now he’s playing Chuck’s uncle on Gossip Girl? The Muse is totally thrilled. Holy Hotness Batman! I sure hope that they keep him on Dexter next season as well because although he wasn’t cast in the most brilliant light the Muse just enjoys the extra eye candy on the show! Yums! I think they’ll set him up with Lily on Gossip Girl but from what I have seen…was he flirting with Blair in that first scene? This could get dangerous!

Desmond is Muse Approved by all means possible teehee!

Love him?

Tell me!

Steal It: Scott Barnes Ice Eye

Oh my freaking god Scott Barnes Ice Eye is on sale again at Victoria’s Secret!


Why have I never picked these up!?

I seen these last year during the Semi Annual sale and skipped them and now again I’m presented with them and I can’t help but feel that old special lemming come on for these. I’m so intrigued to try them out. Knocked down from the original price tag of $25 USD and now priced at $11.99 USD I probably can afford one or two to try out right?

I think mainly, as unconventional as it is, the packaging appeals to me in a big way. Isn’t it really pretty? But on a sad note I worry it’ll be really difficult to get the product out plus the general mess of it which is why I’m glad I can steal it at this price because hey if I hate it at least I didn’t dish nearly $30 bucks on it!

Anyone try these?

Love ‘em?

Want to try ‘em?

Tell the Muse!

Spring Collection 2009: Laneige Art Play

It’s probably terrible of me to reveal that I was relieved that the Laneige Spring Collection Art Play holds little appeal for me. My Spring Collection list is getting huge and I knew that Laneige would introduce some awesome collection that I’d want to add to my list but upon seeing the promo images I experienced utter relief that I could cross one thing off my list at the least.

1231382599

Jump ahead to read more about Laneige Art Play….

Might I say the art work they choose for the above promo image is so strangely festive, I’m tuned in to the right channel here right? This is Spring Collections 2009 correct? Not Holiday ’08? Laneige is legendary for including it’s signature snowflake theme on everything but I just get a Christmas vibe with that image.

Secondly, I must have not been awake this morning because when I seen the model on the left hand side of the promo image I thought it was Lee Da Hae…is it me or does it look like her a tiny bit? Can’t see the resemblance? The Muse highly recommends trying it through sleep deprived eyes and you’ll see it! Maybe it’s because I used to have a great love affair with Le Da Hae prior to seeing Sweet 18. Anyway……….

LANEIGE+ART+PLAY+SPRING+2009+Xx

The line up includes four total palettes coined in the usual “Secret of the Snow Crystal” Collection name. Do you heart Laneige in a major way for that name? “The Secret of the Snow Crystal…” cue the dramatic music….

xx

Two of the palettes are a quad of eye shadows and the other two are lip palettes which include six shades.

LANEIGE+ART+PLAY+SPRING+2009

LANEIGE+ART+PLAY+SPRING+2009+X

The palettes look very nice but just not for me. For one I’m not interested at all in the strange design displayed on the emblem. I’d imagine I’d be all over these if the packaging was nice but sadly I’m just not into it at all and secondly the color combos aren’t appealing in the least as they look very washed up.

Although I do not have prices on anything as of yet I can guest-timate that they will probably range in the $20-$25 range as most Laneige color palettes are around that price. From what I’ve seen and heard Singapore has Laneige for even cheaper in some cases than Korea.

All in all I’m actually quite relieved that I can finally cut something off my Spring list as it was getting rather long and outrageous!

What do you think of Laneige Art Play?

Want it?

Skip it?
