These are worthy of a mention. Behold, Victoria’s Secret New Beauty Rush line up entitled Tropical Coolers:
I’m not going to say these are amazing because they are sadly not. However, I was drawn in when I seen the display and scent selection. I found myself heading to the till to pay for three bottles while struggling to hold them all in my arms. I made it safely there and before I knew it I had shelled out $24 USD and tax.
I’ve tried Victoria’s Beauty Rush Body Double Mist before but as I said I was tempted by these new scents. If you’re unfamiliar with these they are simply a dual layer fragrance that mixes a fragranced water base with a fragranced oil base. This basically translates as you’re getting a moisturizing scented body spray!
They work fabulous on wet skin and it’s kinda the feeling of a dry oil spray that conditions, softens, and leaves behind a gorgeous scent.
Sadly, the thing that I dislike about these is the scent doesn’t linger nearly as long as I’d like. When you spray on the first time you get a super healthy amount of fragrance that smells both fresh and fruity however the staying powder is zero and within an hour you’ll need to retouch up sadly. This could be my body chemistry that sucks the scent right in but it does happen to my sister too so I’m not the only one experiencing the problem with these!
I’m quite upset at this because I do generally love the scents they put out and I’ve tried virtually all of ‘em but they don’t linger at all!
The three that sucked me in were from a new line entitled Tropical Coolers. It’s three new scents that are called Lotta Colada, Punchy, and Mango Madness! All three are super duper sweet and fruity and true to the name.
Shown below after being shaken. Once shaken the oil and water base combine to create a beautifully, conditioning body spray!
For the price you can’t really not avoid picking up one or two up to try out. They aren’t nearly so nice to tote around in your bag for touch ups since they are so big.
They really smell sincerely heavenly….now if we can convince Victoria’s Secret to make them a touch stronger we’d have a winner here!
Not so much?

I’m all for light, sheer, and colorful in the Summer!
I can get all three with Victoria’s Secret New Pink Tinted Lip Balms. How cute are these? Reminiscence of MAC’s Tinted Conditioner Sticks these little guys are about half the price at $7 USD each plus they are heaps cuter! Just look at that cute little heart in the center of each!
These are definately on my wish list! I haven’t yet seen them in stores but you can click on over to Victoria’s Secret website to check them out or add them to your cart!
The Muse likes ‘em, wants ‘em, and feels a purchase coming on!

I prefer a lighter fragrance in the Summer and Victoria’s Secret new “Sensual Fruit” Collection is the perfect combination of a light and sweet scent for the hot weather!
I picked these up a few weeks ago at Victoria’s Secret and I’m quite happy I purchased them as the weather is beginning to get humid and I really like a quick body spray that lingers on in the sticky heat!
I picked up Dewy Peach and Juicy Apple both of which are a lovely cocktail of sweet fruit! I find these linger all day when I layer them with the lotion and I’m left with just the right amount of scent that’s light enough for Summer wear and tear.
The price can’t be beat at 4 for $19.99 USD or 7 for $29.99. You can mix and match till your heart’s content which is a plus for me as I can never make up my mind!
I enjoy a nice light fragrance in the Summer and these fit the bill perfectly!

Here’s an awesome Beauty on a Budget find for you!
Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Sparkling and Luminous Loose Eyeshadows.
I picked these up this weekend spontaneously while waiting in line at Victoria’s Secret. I see them ALL the time and Victoria’s Secret pimps them out big time. These things are in little buckets all over the store so seriously sooner or later you’re bound to pick up one or two even if you don’t want to which is just the case for me!
I didn’t need, nor want these but somehow, someway they finally ended up in my cart.
What can I say? I guess I got tired of seeing them all the time and never trying them! No idea why I bothered purchasing them but honestly I’m actually glad I did because they aren’t so bad!
These are $7 USD each which is the most obscene price I ever heard of in my life as they are so tiny! $7? Come on! No way am I dishing out a near $10 bill for these little tiny eyeshadows!
But I brought five of them which means I got ‘em for $4 USD each! I like that price much better
They are available at a single price of $7 or as a purchase of 5 for $20 which sounds much better.
F0r some odd reason everyone and their mum decided that it was a good idea to be at Victoria’s Secret and the line was fracking out the door. So as I waited impatiently I was busy swatching every color of these shadows on my arm and decided I did indeed need one or two.
As I said they are good.
First of all they are very light and shimmering. If you love a “not so made up” look these are definately something you might want to consider purchasing. Pigmentation is not too bad and the color is buildable. The powders are light, shimmery, and have a nice bit of sparkle.
They are advertised in two finishes one of which is a “high sparkle” finish while the other is a Luminous version. I honestly can’t tell the difference between the two as they both give a nice fair amount of sparkle.
Colors range from a few bold colors like greens, purples, and teals to lighter shades like pink, beige, and white.
I personally choose mostly light colors as I thought they would be great for Summer for a light makeup look.
Not alot of product comes in the little jar but for the price I can’t complain too much. The applicator is awesome in my humble opinion! I wish that Urban Decay had such a great applicator on their new loose pigment shadows. It’s a dense, rounded sponge tip that fits very nice not only in the contour of my eye but right across the lid for easy application!
The colors I got were:
- Glow Nude-A sparkling nude cream color
- Deja Blue-A deep blue green
- Goldblinger-A soft creamy gold
- Miami Ice-A sparkling white
- Twinkled Pink-A iridescent pink
All in all these are pretty good quality for the price and the Muse likes them! If you favor a light, natural look or just want an easy, simple eyeshadow application these might be something to consider!
Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Sparkling and Luminous Loose Eyeshadows should definately be able to fit into your Beauty Budget!
