Beauty Bits & Bobs
I recently did an FOTD
for you using Givenchy Sari Glow Blush in Maharani Orange, Givenchy Precious Sari Glittering Eyeshadow in Maharani Gold, and Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Maharani Henna and today I’ll be bringing you another look using some of the items from the Givenchy Spring Collection 2009.
Jump ahead to have a peek!
Since I’ve already done a warmer looking using some of the Givenchy Spring Collection, I thought a cooler order was in order. For the cooler look I used Givenchy Sari Glow Blush in Maharani Pink and Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Maharani Rose. I was tempted to use Givenchy Precious Sari Glittering Eyeshadow in Maharani Silver but I thought it didn’t quite go so well with all the pink so I opted for a wash of color using a few MAC eye shadows in various pink shades.
The pink blush wasn’t as popping as I thought it would be and it came out as a basic pink shade on my cheeks, quite flattering really but nothing as bold as I originally though. I’m absolutely in deeper lust now after trying out the Maharani Rose lippie! It’s a stunning shade and quite lovely for Spring.
Here’s the basic look I created using the above listed items:
You know my mum thinks that the solution to life, the universe, and everything is bottled up in a jar of Vicks Vaporub.
Anything that ails me can normally be solved by rubbing myself with Vicks Vaporub. I dunno, that’s what my mother told me.
If I have a cold rub some Vicks on my chest, if I’m coughing rub some Vicks on my chest, if I have a sore throat rub some Vicks on my chest….what can I say my mum is either a nutter or kickin’ it old skool. So I do admit that she has a point here. I do feel heaps better after a rub down with Vicks Vaporub but mmmm walking out of my house and going to my office with a bunch of greasy petroleum under my nose and on my chest is a tad bit on the strange side.
Have no fear! I have just the solution for fighting off the flu and cold season with an easy to use product that’s in the Muse’s purse!
Jump ahead to check it out!
Guest starring in the Muse’s Purse today is Body Works Cold & Flu Therapy Instant Aromatherapy Roll On!

What is it?
It’s an all-natural roll on that contains a blend of eucalyptus, basil, spearmint, wild mint, lavender, cedar left, and essential oils. Shake up the bottle a bit and roll onto the base of your throat and around the chest are, now breath deeply to combat the unwanted effects of your stuffy noise brought on by the cold, wintery weather!

What are some of the ways you cure a stuffy nose?
Tell the Muse!
If you didn’t grab Sugar Cosmetics Sweet Cheeks Baked Blush the first time around you’re seriously missing something!
And if you didn’t grab it when Sephora axed it from the line, again, you were seriously missing something!
But have no fear…you can haz it now for $5 bucks thanks to your kind old Muse!
Click ahead to read who has it for $5 USD!
Sugar Cosmetics has discounted many of it’s items on it’s main website and the Sweet Cheeks Baked Blush happens to be $5 USD at the moment.
This leads me to believe the line is gone for good or they might introduce a new line up….but let’s be honest with ourselves here, with the economy in a mess I think it’s safe to say Sugar Cosmetics is taking a long trip and not coming back anytime soon!
Kisses and Hugs Sugar!
