Beauty Bits & Bobs
The Muse thinks it’s been too long since her last Stash Spotlight so she deems today a good day to do one!
How about a lookiee at her stash of Bare Escentuals Glimmers and Shadows?
Ok, so the Muse is the first to admit she has way too many of these. Whoa. But she feels better that at least they were mostly collected with kits and not purchased separately, that counts for something right? Maybe….
The Muse listens, honest she does. She’s gotten numerous requests asking for a review and swatches of the new Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush. One new shade was introduced, Pink Coral, which was quite appealing for my Summer Blush series but I got soooo many requests for a review and a spotlight on it that I just decided why not Muse it by itself instead of having it become lost in a series post!
So here it is, as per alot of requests, Product Musings on Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Pink Coral.
With the barest hint of sparkle, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blushes are sure to please anyone who prefers a non-matte blush formula. Pink Coral is one of the newest shades available in this formula and ideal for Summer-wear. It’s a gorgeous shade of coral with a tiny kiss of pink! If you’re desiring a sweet pop of peach on your cheeks Pink Coral will do the job well. Although the “shimmer” maybe scare you, rest assured it’s a barely there shimmer that’s very subtle and pretty.
The silky formula glides on well and blends beautifully leaving behind plenty of pigmented color so remember a little goes a very long way. Use the blush in it’s own pan or pop it out and place it in one of the Bobbi Brown Customize palettes to create your own unique compact.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush are fantastic and Pink Coral is a beautiful shade to Muse about this sunny day! The only rant the Muse has is the blushes are only available in seven shades, boo can we has more now?
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Pink Coral (or any shade) is Muse Approved for purchase.
Carol’s Daughter has been known to capture my heart a time or two with their incredibly unique fragrances. So the case may be with the brand new fragrance introduced from Carol’s Daughter.
Carol’s Daughter Pearls is one of the best scents to date I’ve tried from the collection. According to Lisa Price she loves creating fragrances that are unique and unforgettable and truly that’s something she does well. Pearls is a soft blend of lemon verbena with a beautiful finish of apricot and peach. The blend has a complex way of morphing from a fruity scent to a warm sugary blend to a soft floral with hints of jasmine, rose, and violet and plenty of warm vanilla and caramel too! It quite reminds me of Fresh Lemon Sugar but far more complex with it’s various notes. The scent is very warm, sweet yet nothing too crazy, and very feminine and flirty. I love the scent of lemons in my perfume and this is a heavy note of lemon with a nice underlay of warm vanilla, sugar, and hints of caramel which slowly morphs into a fine floral. It’s quite interesting, very unique, and truly a special fragrance. Even though the fragrance is an EDT it still manages to have great throw and lingers quite strongly as most Carol’s Daughter fragrances do.
I’m reviewing Carol’s Daughter Pearls today since Mother’s Day is right around the corner and there is a very special limited edition collection available that’s a steal, a deal, and something that will make your mum (or you…hey we all need spoiling!) very happy.
Available for a very limited time is the Carol’s Daughter Limited Edition Pearls Gift Set for $49.50 which includes a Carol’s Daughter Pearls Eau de Toilette 2.5 oz and a Carol’s Daughter Pearls Body Creme 1oz. The two items come housed in a gorgeous little keepsake jewelry box with a dome lid and a little gold clasp. I still have the creme and perfume stowed away in it but you can remove them and use the box to stash away your jewelry or small treasures as it’s really a nice, sturdy keepsake box.
Carol’s Daughter Pearls Fragrance is actually $45 USD so you can spend a few dollars more and get the gift set with the body lotion for a better deal. It also ships free when purchased from Carol’s Daughter directly. Sephora also has it in store and in stock.
Carol’s Daughter Pearls is very Muse Approved for purchase. Do head to your local Sephora to check out, I’m positive you’ll fall in love with it as much as I did. It’s simply a gorgeous scent. It makes a rather great gift for Mother’s Day but the Muse can understand if you want to keep it all to yourself!

If you’re been a lemming Smashbox Untamed but couldn’t quite justify the cost at the moment do check out the Smashbox Untamed 3 Piece Set on QVC. Killer deal!
The kit includes three pieces from the brand new Smashbox Summer Collection, Untamed. Purchased separately the items would run you $71 USD plus tax. You can snag three of the items for $46 (plus shipping) from QVC by using item number A91013.
The kit includes:
- Smashbox Untamed Trio in Savage
- Smashbox Untamed Lipgloss in Flesh
- Smashbox Cream Cheeky Color in Untamed
Nice little deal if you ask the Muse’s opinion.
If you’re ordering something for your mum from Bath and Body Works (go now! There’s still time to get it in time for Mother’s Day!) you can slap these little guys into your cart too for a sweet bathing experience.
There are two Delish Bath Cupcakes on sale at Bath and Body Works for $6 each. You can choose from (or choose both) Carrot Cake or Sweetie Pie. Each is housed in a cute little gift box and tied with a ribbon, perfect for giving to mum (I’d keep it for myself though…eep how rotten of me! I can justify that by saying my mum is not a bath person anyway!).
If you’re ordering from BBW anyway it’s well worth tossing ’em in your cart to tide over your shipping to $65 to take advantage of the free shipping. I’ve tried them before and they are quite delightful! Nice price, killer pressie!
