the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Review and Swatches

The bloody Balm gets me every time with their uber cute glam packaging and interesting little cosmetic releases that make it seem like the world will end if I don’t haul it.

Such is the case with their new highlighting powder entitled Mary-Lou Manizer. I’ve no idea what the name is about I guess it’s a cross between man and luminizer? I’m not really sure but hey whatever floats your boat the Balm, I’ll go along with anything you say if you keep pumping out these cute packages of makeup goodness.

Did the Muse happen to tell you that she adores pretty powders?á No great secret there right?

Flirt Flowerific Cheek Color 6

When she first got a peek at the new Flirt!

This Fall, Kenzo comes at us with a brand new eau de parfum. If you’re a fan of FlowerbyKenzo you’ll be quite delighted at this new scent which is a tribute to the original fragrance.

A sensual floral stream of rosa damascena, jasmine, sensual musks and vanilla make up FlowerbyKenzo Essentielle.

This new fragrance was composed by Franšois Demachy and is housed in a three newly designed bottles by Serge Mansau. As with many of the Kenzo bottles, this is a slick, modern affair with an architectural look.

Victoria’s Secret I Love Coconut Collection

Victorias Secret I Love Coconut Collection 1

Ok, nobody panic but I think someone forgot to send out the memo to Victoria’s Secret about it being Fall.

Oops.

With the introduction of the new Victoria’s Secret I Love Coconut Collection one does wonder what’s up at VS headquarters. Maybe they are just in denial that the season is over and in honor of it still being Summer over at Victoria’s Secret they decided to bring us a tropical coconut collection to make us yearn for those long, humid days.

Could be anything but the Muse chooses to believe that someone screwed up and didn’t tell them it’s Fall.

It’s ok though, I can still so get excited about coconut.

Jump for it!

The Body Shop Fall Collection 2009: The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents Review and Swatches

The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents is available now in store and online. The Body Shop went a little warm this year and a little bold with their new Fall line up. I was quite delighted to see a mix of Fall friendly shades thrown together with some very vibrant, popping shades of green, blue, and lilac. Quite an interesting collection if you’re a friendly fan of color.

In honor of their new Fall Collection, The Body Shop is featuring new haul videos daily from youTubers who review, discuss, and even do tutorials using the collection. You can hop on over to The Body Shop Blog and enjoy a new video daily to see who’s loving all over the collection and what sort of looks they created. The Muse did a very brief video on her MuseTV channel over on youTube however she doesn’t particularly excel at video creating which is why she is following up that review with a post here on Musings.

Jump ahead for my review of The Body Shop Precious Pearlescents.
