I know, I know you’re probably a bit tired of all my ravings about Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection already. I’m sowrry but I can’t help myself I’m really enjoying this collection!
I promise this is my last review! Today I’ll be giving you some brief deets about the brand new Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Lip and Cheek Pop plus a few swatches thrown in for good measure.
Click it to learn more!
Ok, first off, prior to my review, I need to tell you to go out and grab these now. If you’re yearning for ‘em don’t wait as they are completely sold out on the website and many Victoria’s Secret stores I’ve passed by have maybe one color at the most. So hurry, hurry! Get ‘em fast!
Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Lip and Cheek Pop are basically packaged in a deodorant style, swivel up tube. Just swirl the dial and the stick slides upwards for application. Swipe across cheeks or lips and you’re done. You’ll get a very subtle pinch of color that’s quite pretty. One of the novel things about these cute little blushes is the fact that they are cooling on your skin. As you apply you’ll feel a burst of coolness on your cheeks which is rather refreshing, too cutes!
The Cheek Pops come in three shades which are Peach Pop (coral, orange combo), Berry Cooler (fuchsia), and Pink Splash (pink). The sticks are pretty budget friendly as they are three for $15 USD. If you prefer your blush a bit darker you may need to swipe two or three times for decent color payoff or just once for a very sheer layer. I was pleasantly surprised at how long the color lasts. I started my day off with it on in the AM and was delighted when my sister said, “Oh it’s still wearing well..!” at around 5 PM that same day. I do think they look way better on cheeks than lips.
The only minor rant I have is the top is a clear plastic top so it kinda looks like I lost the cap on these. They look a bit unfinished if that makes sense. It seems they ran out of cash to get a proper lid on these LOL! Aside from that I generally liked these and thought they were a rather great beauty budget find.
Definitely head in store to try ‘em out as testers are available. Overall, for the price you can’t go wrong. A rather cute little budget friendly option for natural, fresh Summer makeup! Loves it!
Sportin’ Berry Cooler on lips and cheeks minus foundation with a touch of gloss on top of the stain!
Cute little baked eye shadows with a metallic, shimmery finish and a cheap price tag!
How do they perform?
The formula is silky, smooth and blends beautifully for the price. Some fall out here and there but sometimes we have to take the bad with the good folks. They wear long, are nicely pigmented, and I’m rather in love with ‘em which makes them all the better right?
Who might like ‘em?
Anyone who wants a pigmented, cheap shadow! Anyone who wants a funky, foiled eye look for the Summer! Those who adore baked eye shadows!
I’m having a blast doing various looks with these this week. I can’t verify completely about how many shades there are but it appears around 6 to 8 shades. Honestly, for the price I’m pretty impressed. I don’t normally love the Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush makeup line but I have found a gem or two in those little displays by the register and Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Wet Dry EyeShadow happen to fall into the superstar category. I only got three shades as I was trying to keep my purchases to fun, Summer shades and a few colors fairly shouted Summer lovin’. The colors I got were Gold Rush, Hot Ginger, and Blueray. Gold Rush is a shimmering beige gold, Blueray is a pool blue with hints of aqua, and Hot Ginger is sparkling bronze. You can use the shadows wet or dry. Dry you’ll end up with a high metallic sparkle effect and wet you’ll have more of a foiled eye look. I didn’t create a look for you using all three shades but I did do two looks one of which I’ll post here and later on with my review of Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm you’ll see me sporting Gold Rush.
Overall, the price tag and quality of the shadows makes them a worthy item of a pick up. These aren’t available on the Victoria’s Secret website as of yet so you can’t see swatches but head in store for a peep. These are tossed in with the other Beauty Rush items so you can’t miss ‘em. I noticed that some stores have only three or four shades where as other stores had close to 8 shades so shop around for a bigger selection.
I’m Muse Approving these for purchase! Well worth picking up. Loves ‘em!
Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Beauty Rush Lip Butter are available in three shades, have an SPF 15, and are tasty treats for your lips this Summer!
Check out what I think after the jump!
I showered a whole lot of love on the Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection when I seen it in stores. The Muse cannot hold out against VS makeup goodies very long. I’d have normally left the glosses in all honesty but something tempted me that day. Could be the allure of a tasty gloss, could be the bright popping colors, could be I was just weak that day. Whatever the case may be I ended up getting two of the three shades available (who knows I’d probably gotten three if the other shade was available at the time). Now, one thing I should mention, I was mistakenly thinking these were glosses but actually they are lip butter. Oh, ok, big difference!
I was kinda juiced at such popping shades in a gloss but as I mentioned, lip butter, big difference eep! No likey the texture or formula on my lips. Feels a tad bit on the silicone side and kinda waxy-like. Mmmm…not loving it sadly! I’m wearing Frostea (orange shade) in my FOTD here if you’d like to see what they look like on.
Aside from the undesirable formula these hold a bit of appeal as they are tasty. I got Frostea and Lemonita. Frostea tastes like iced tea and is a bright popping orange shade where as Lemonita is a tart, fruity lemon and a shade of sizzling pink. Both have decent pigmentation so you can get away without using a lipstick or stain underneath as they do leave a hint of sheer color behind.
Taste is great (love flavored lip products), price isn’t bad at 3 for $15, and the colors are pretty sweet for Summer plus these contain SPF 15. They definitely have a bit of a good thing going for them now I just need to get over the idea that they aren’t a gloss but a butter aka waxy, silicon feeling on my lips, yak! If I can get past that I might be able to recommend ‘em for purchase.
The Muse is boldly going where no Muse has gone before. To the land of nail polish….yes it happens occasionally, the Muse ventures outside her comfort zone and takes on exciting new cosmetics like nail polish.
Remember kids, the Muse knows nothing about nail polish, isn’t an expert of any kind, and is only doing this post for a little fun.

I swear I’m having nightmares someone is going to ask me some techy nail polish question like what finish this is or something equally important and I won’t know how to answer. I’m truly a n00b when it comes to polish (be gentle) so I really can’t review this proper for you however I did want to show you this funky fun shade from the Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection I was telling you about last week!
There are a total of four shades available and the one I’m sportin’ today is called Clemenshine. The other shades I didn’t haul but this particular color did appeal for whatever reason so I just snagged it with the rest of my treasures as it seemed such a fun, funky shade for Summer. It’s a bright, true orange so indeed it fairly shouts Summer! These are 3 for $15 which you can mix and match with other items in the collection so I guess not too badly priced? I’m not sure how much does polish cost anyway? I don’t normally buy polish aside from a few select Chanel shades and when I have my weekly pedi I get whatever is hanging out on the rack or I steal something from my sis.
If you’re looking for bold, neon shades this Summer, I’d check these out as they seem quite fresh and fun for the warmer weather.
Hope my first official nail post wasn’t too bad, wink!
Ok, I admit it. My shower stall is filled with way too many shower gels that I’m constantly rotating. What? I love variety!
Fruity, Sweet, Foody, you name it it’s hanging around in my shower!
Click ahead to find out about 12 Shower Gels I can’t live without! And some that are long gone so I find I have to live without ‘em, oh woe!
1. The Muse finds she can’t live without Lush Back for Breakfast Shower Gel! At one time she did when it was long gone! But bless be Lush has brought it back, praise the shower angels above. Bright, sunny citrus to wake you up in the morning should make Lush Back for Breakfast one shower gel you wouldn’t want to live without.
2. Lush Freeze Shower Gel suffered the same faith as Back for Brekkie but just like it’s fellow gel in arms, it’s back and better than evers! Summer is hear so this cool, minty sensation keeps the Muse feeling brisk and refreshed during her evening shower! Can’t live without it!
3. You should always buy enough Lush Snow Fairy to last you the year round because you’ll find you have to live without it until Christmas of the next year when it’s released fro the short Holiday season! Tis the Season with Snow Fairy!
5. I have to live without Victoria’s Secret Lime Tartina. This tart, sweet lime concoction was introduced last Summer and has ever since been long since gone. Sadness!
6. Bath and Body Works Red Hot Love Story was introduced for Valentine’s Day in or around 2007. The Muse hauled it like a good little junkie while it was still around because this sweet, tingling red hot shower gel went buh-bye!
7. What in the world was Philosophy thinking when they axed Empowermint from their popular 3 in 1 shower gel collection? Bestest stuff evers! The Muse is down to her very last drop, bring it back Philosophy, bring it back!
8. Since Bath and Body Works Red Hot Love Story is long since gone the Muse can pacify herself with Philosophy Red Hot Cinnamon Dots! Loves it!
10. Soap and Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel is one of those shower gels that lingers long after your shower is over, it’s just pure goodness in a large pump bottle. Soap and Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel and the Muse have been going steady for a while now!
11. Red Licorice Shower Gel? Yes, indeed, perfection! Philosophy Red Licorice Shower Gel brings it! Plus the Muse can use it as a shampoo too, she has twizzler scented locks and is loving it!
That’s all folks. 12 Shower Gels I wouldn’t want to live without and quite a few that I have too, sniff! Go ahead and name some of your fav shower gels, doesn’t have to be 12 could be more, could be less!
It’s a been a while since we had a beauty poll! Miss it?
Today is a poll of favorites! So what’s your fav place for Bath and Body goodies? Are you a fan of Victoria’s Secret or Bath and Body Works? If you had to choose one which would it be?
As for me I’m a big lover of Victoria’s Secret since they are a tad more on the unique side when compared to Bath and Body Works. Bath and Body Works used to have the edge with it’s interesting little cute items like the Temptations Collection but since they have gone very mainstream I find I prefer VS over BBW. Victoria’s Secret seemed to have more unique fragrances in their body splashes and they introduce some really fun items during the different seasons. So I’m def for VS.
How about you?

Today I’ll be bringing you a review of the brand new Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Body Chiller Mists! Gotta love ‘em for a burst of refreshing Summer scent!
Check ‘em out after the jump!
Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Body Chiller Mists are available in three brand new, limited edition scents for $12 USD each or 3 for $25. The scents are Lemonita, Coolada, and Frostea. The bottles are shaped just like the Victoria’s Secret Double Mist Body Sprays which lead me to believe these were double mists but they are actually body mists.
As I mentioned in my original post about these I was quite happy to see they were body mists. I find body mists are easier to apply and the scent lingers a tad longer than the double mists. The double mists are quite nice but they apply a tad oily plus the scent just gets sucked into my skin and fails to last all day. I was hopeful these might last a while longer. As predicted they do last a fair bit longer than the double mists formula but within a very few hours time you’ll need a refresher but none the less they do last out considerably well when compared to double mists.
Out of the three Lemonita is my favorite. It’s a cool, tart, refreshing lemon scent. It’s rare to come across lemon scents that are true in body and this just hits the right notes. If your a fan of lemons you’re sure to love this. Frostea is a delightfully sweet, fresh brewed ice tea scent and Coolada is a Pina Colada blend that’s heavy on the coconut!
All three are unique, fun blends for Summer. Even though they fail to linger long I still love them and think they are worth picking up. The scents have Summer fun written all over them and the burst of scent they do provide really gets me in the mood for warm weather!
Muse Approving these for purchase. I think they are worthy of a pick up!
Let me tell you something, it’s cold outside! The weather doesn’t know what it wants to do. Is it Summer? Is it Spring? Is it Winter? On lawd please decide already! Well even if it’s not feeling Spring or Summer-like outside I’m still feeling the love for the Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection!
Jump for it!
Before I tell you all about the Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection allow me to mention the fact that Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Eye Shadow are now in press form! ‘ello Awesome! They aren’t on the website yet but I got three of them yesterday in some nice looking shades. It looks like there are a total of five shades available and they seem really nice (haven’t yet used them on my eyes). I got this incredible aqua shade that reminds me of a pool! Pretties!
Anyway! On to the rest of the good stuff!
Victoria’s Secret Limited Editon Pool Party Body Chiller Mist is available in three scents. Lemonita (Sweet, Tart Lemon), Coolada (Tropical Coconut Blend), and Frostea (Cool, Crisp, Fresh Brewed Ice Tea). These were quite the surprise for me as I thought they were the typical Beauty Rush Double Mists but oh no they aren’t! They happen to be regular body sprays! I’m quite excited about this as I do find that the double mists are a tad oily and the scent doesn’t linger as long as I’d like. I’m excited to try these out. I snagged all three of ‘em for 3 for $25 USD! Review coming shortly!
The scents also come in a Body Chiller Glimmer Cream (shimmering body cream) and Body Drink Lotion.
I’m always terribly excited about new makeup collections from Victoria’s Secret so when I seen the brand new bits they released with the Pool Party Collection I got quite hyped!
Victoria’s Secret Limited Edition Pool Party Cheek and Lip Pop (3 for $15 or 6 or $20) available in three shades, Splash, Pop, and Cooler.
Also available are Victoria’s Secret Limited Edition Pool Party Lip Butter with SPF 15 (3 for $15 or 6 for $20) available in three flavors to match up with the release of the body mists.
And finally for your tips and toes four shades of Victoria’s Secret Limited Edition Pool Party Nail Paint (3 for $15 or 6 for $20) in four shades! All bright neon shades that are sure to please those who like a bit of loud with their Summer nail look.
I picked up quite a few of the items above so I’ll be reviewing them all for you shortly. I’m really enjoying this release from Victoria’s Secret and I’m quite happy they didn’t let the economy get them down as the release is quite large! Bravo Victoria’s Secret, the Muse is always a fan!
I didn’t see the lipstick or gloss but def check your local store for those. The Muse suggest clicking here, printing, and heading in store to snag these (my store had ‘em) as it’ll save shipping plus you get 20% Off with the coupon.
After yammering on and freaking on and on about how much I wanted Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush 3-in-1 Body Washes, the Muse finally caved and hauled ‘em all!
While the Muse’s friend Kira shopped butt floss the Muse wandered over to the Victoria’s Secret body care section and started stocking up on the brand new Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush 3-in-1 Body Washes in dozens, ok not dozens but almost, try half a dozen, what? I can’t just choose scent. Come on people I’m the Muse for crying out loud. Since the washes were 3 for $25 and there happened six that turned into the lucky number of the night. But have no fear my entire haul cost a mere $34 and change as I used my handy dandy 20% Off coupon plus I had a coupon that came in the mail for $10 off and finally I had a gift card with a whopping $9 bucks on it! Score! So each cost me less than $6 bucks or so.
Obviously I haven’t had a chance to use all of them but I just got out of the shower not 10 minutes ago after using Honey Do and the Muse likey! They smell quite strong and multitask as a shower gel, bubble bath, and shampoo. I used it as a shower gel and shampoo, now my hair is smelling all fruitylicious.
The scents I got were:
Slice of Heaven
Coconut Craze is quite a nice tropical coconut blend but has a touch of headache inducing car air freshener scent if that makes sense at all. Appletini is nice and sweet, fruity, and has a nice tart round out. Honey Do is fresh, sweet, and smells very much like a cool melon. Juiced Berry is my favorite as it’s a nice fruity berry smell. Candy, Baby is a nice cotton candy vanilla like scent. And finally Slice of Heaven is a very nice sweet vanilla blend.
Compared to other 3-in-1′s such as BBW’s and Philosophy, these are def up there as a good decent wash and shampoo. They are extra strong smelling and moisturizing. All in all it makes the shower experience a sweet one. Likey!
Well worth checking out and Muse Approved for purchase!
