Lush 13 Soap (Unlucky for Dirt)

Only Lush would think it would be a good idea to combine oregano with rose. Is it me or does that somehow remind you of pizza for some odd reason or another?

lush+13+soap

Lush 13 Soap is a mix of rose and oregano and gets it’s name from a 1931 film about soap. I looked that up and didn’t see anything about it but I think I’d love a movie about soap…or cosmetics…or shower gels…hmmmm.

Lush 13 Soap is made with oregano because it supposedly kills MRSA bacteria, I dunno about that but from what I’m hearing from Lush fans it smells heavenly. But do go right ahead and count me skeptical…I’m still thinking pizza…must be the oregano.

It’s available now from Lush UK and soon after I’m sure it’ll come visit our side of the pond where we can enjoy it with pizza.

If you could create a Lush soap what ingredients would you use?

Just a little update on Victoria’s Secret Wet/Dry Shadows. These are finally making an appearance on the VS website and after trying to figure out exactly how many shades are available it’s finally verified. It appears there are a total of twelve shades! I’ve only been privy to about 8 or so. Nice to see they have all the shades listed with swatches now on the site.

I reviewed these last week if you missed it have a clickie here.

Anyone have a chance to try these out yet?

If so what did you think?

10 MAC Lip Glosses You Should Own

mac+lipglass

Somehow, someway MAC Lipgloss wiggled it’s way into my heart. My first try with MAC gloss was a nightmare and I ended up hating it for ever after because of the terribly sticky, tacky formula. As you know I’ve since made peace with the formula and even give it props for being tacky enough to stay in place for hours at a time.

I’m now the pride owner of one too many MAC lip glosses. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Who knows but the fact remains I can’t get enough of them and I look forward to new shades with each release.


Check out my list below fro 10 MAC Lip Gloss shades I think you should own or at least consider adding to your collection!



MAC glosses come and go through my life as collections release. The shades you see above are ones that stick out in my mind and I consider favorites! The Muse thinks you should think about adding one or two of these colors to your collection, loves ‘em!

Anyone own any of these shades?

What are some MAC gloss shades that stick out in your mind?

Beauty News: DuWop Twilight Lip Gloss DuWop Lip Venom V

I’m the first to admit I absolutely adore Twilight so of course a new themed lipgloss from the movie by DuWop has me in fits of joy!

duwop+twilight+lip+gloss

Jump for the beauty news on DuWop Twilight Lipgloss (or DuWop Lip Venom V, name is unconfirmed as of yet).

Entertainment Weekly reports that DuWop Twilight Lip Gloss is a lip stain mixed with DuWop’s popular Lip Venom! Some reports I’ve read are saying that there will be an entire makeup collection themed for the Twilight film and that Robert Pattinson is already sporting DuWop Twilight on the set. You’ll see this gloss and possibly this collection, if rumors are true, later this year but I’m betting by the end of Summer for Fall Collection releases.

Count me on board for purchasing the gloss and anything else they choose to theme with Twilight. WANT! This could be one LE collection that sells out FAST!

Would you buy Twilight themed cosmetics?
