The Muse is a bit of a Philosophy girl with her skincare so of course she wants to try out the new Philosophy Eye Hope ($48 USD)!
With the promise of a renewed hope for my skin and powerful clinical results, this sounds like the eye cream I’ve been hoping for. Six weeks of use shows significant improvement in fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness. Honestly, I’ve had great success with fine lines and dark circles but have yet to find a match that will cure my puffy eyes so here’s to hoping that Philosophy Eye Hope might do the job plus bring home with my fine lines and circles too.
Sounds good to me!
Available now from Nordies and Sephora.
Anyone try yet?
I freaking love the C.O. Bigelow Lemon line. The shower gel, the hand soap, the moisturizer…it’s all good news to me. So get this, best news evers, C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum. Can you say freak out!?
Click it for the deets!
So check it, C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum is inspired by my beloved, favorite Lemon Body Cream from C.O. Oh my god likey! It’s a pure, sparkling lemon fragrance that blends gren lemon leaves, citrus notes, and a creamy white musk. Sounds pretty much like what heaven smells like (I’ll write a mass e-mail when I get there one day so you know if I was right about that!).
The scent already has a near 5 star rating on the Bath and Body Works website. Likey some more! The price tag isn’t half bad either for an EDP which is $34.50 for a 3.5oz size.
I so need C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum in my life please. As much as I LOVE Loccitane Citrus Verbena it just doesn’t seem to last on me, sadness. So slap me excited that the C.O. Bigelow one has an EDP, maybe it’ll linger longer on me? Oh please, please, please!
The Muse is a listening and has heard a few pleas yammering for a review so as soon as I can get my hands on it, I’ll be giving the good word!
Lorac The Muse sometimes doesn’t give you enough tender, loving, care. Please don’t take offense, I do so adore you but sometimes you get pushed to the back corner but have no fear you have my utmost attention this Summer with all your delightful baked goodies.
Lorac introduces two brand new baked goodies with it’s Summer Collection. Introducing Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow and Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush, I know, I know matte! Try not to panic! I promise we are all going to be ok.
Matte scares a Muse and probably scares about 99% of you as well. But I must say that both the Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow and Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush look utterly dreamy and possibly easy to blend especially since they are baked which makes them extra silky smooth plus “satin” is in the name!
I’m partial to the Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush available in three shades for $24 USD each…I could cope with gathering up all three for my very own!
- Exposed (Peachy Pink)
- Hollywood (Bronzed Rose)
- Velvet Rose (Plum Rose)
It’s probably safe to say Lorac could probably talk me into purchasing two or three of it’s brand new Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadows as well available in 5 shades for $22 USD each.
- Chic (White)
- Drama (Charcoal)
- Insider (Deep Blue)
- Posh (Nude)
- Social (Brown)
Well, hello there Posh and Social! The Muse happens to be both very posh and very social (at least she likes to think she is) so you’re perfect for her.
All in all I think I like the looks of these even though “matte” is thrown around. They look quite silky and very pigmented! The Muse must get to Sephora and pick up a few for review. Keep it tuned here for the good word. It’s ok to admit that matte is where it’s at sometimes.
You know as well as I, that the Muse can b*tch herself blue about Sephora makeup being mediocre at best. But you have to give them credit where credit is due. For example take a peep at their latest palette:
With the recent release of the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Palette I do so admit to being quite excited. I didn’t indulge simply because many of the colors were in my beauty library already but I’m girl enough to admit that the palette was rather good looking to say the very least.
Embracing the same concept Sephora has now introduced a second palette along the same lines entitled Calypso Soul. Now the palette is of course part of the normal drum up to introduce new makeup bags, brushes, etc….but it’s also quite obviously the star of the collection. Made of heavy metal with a pretty design and beautiful hues of the ocean this palette undoubtedly tempts. I can hear the siren’s call of, “buy me Muse, buy me….” so much so that now I’m considering getting the Moroccan Sunrise one too!
For shame Sephora you’re evil for making me give into your lure.
Good job Sephora.
Keep ’em coming like this and you might shut me up in the future about how bad your makeup line is.
