Victoria’s Secret Summer Collection 2009: Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection

Victoria%27s+Secret+Pool+Party+Collection+6

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%27s+Secret+Pool+Party+Collection+5

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.

DuWop Summer Collection 2009

duwop+summer+collection+2009+11111

Dearest DuWop,

You obviously listen to the Muse when she’s yammering on and on about your incredible crush palette from last year because you introduced a new one with your Summer Collection! Gasp! You really love the Muse don’t you? Showering her with gifts such as this. Btw you were a little late coming out with your Summer this year but we forgives you because of the new shade of the crush palette plus the other bits you have coming out look mighty fine.

Thanks for hearing my prayer! Love ya lots!

Your faithful servant,
the Muse

P.S. Let’s do lunch soon!

Yes, you read that correctly. The DuWop Summer Collection 2009 is up and available on the DuWop site (and on Sephora if you so please) and yes you also read correctly that a brand new shade of the DuWop Crush Palette is out! My god the excitement is too much, I can’t stand it. If you haven’t tried the crush palette you are so missing out of one of life’s greatest joys!

Jump ahead for the rest of the release deets!

Although small the DuWop Summer Collection 2009 looks mighty fine peeps. Check it below!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+5

Ok, so of course I want to tell you about the new DuWop Crush Palette ($24 USD). Last year I fell in love with this palette and I hoped and prayed for another color selection, bless be my prayers were heard and in comes a new shade entitled 18 Karat. So I have to rant a little bit because I’m the Muse and that’s what I do. 18 Karat looks a little, tiny bit uneventful from the photos. I’m a tad worried as it looks sorta matte, not as shimmery as the prior palette, and even appears almost a dupe of the other palette however I will say in it’s defense that the stock photo may not be doing justice. I’m really worked into a frenzy over this palette and I’m looking forward to getting my order so I can see if it’s a yay or a nay. If you missed my raving do check out my review of the original DuWop Crush Palette by checking it out here.

Love, love, loving the new DuWop Iced Teas ($19 USD)! These are a cooling transuclent lip treatment with a exotic fruit flavor which also contain sunscreen. They look incredibly yummie! I’m unsure if they taste different, like their names imply, or it’s the same taste. Four shades are available which are White Peach, Black Currant, Strawberry Kiwi, and Passionfruit!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+2

As always I’m on the bandwagon for expressing my intense dislike for bronzers but count me on board with the DuWop SunDrops ($28 USD). DuWop Sun Drops is a universally flattering bronzing serum that gives a healthy radiant glow. The fact that it’s in a pump packaging makes it very appealing as it means the chances of overdoing it are slim!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+3

Speaking of bronzing also available is the new DuWop Revolution Deep ($28 USD). This I’ll avoid like the plague but anyone who is interested in a deep tan this gives a smooth, bronzed effect to skin!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+4

And finally DuWop Doubleglow7 Deep ($25 USD) is the brand new Doubleglow from DuWop. This I can get on board with as it looks quite glowy and shimmering! Perfect for highlighting cheeks with a splash of the sun! Likey!

DuWop+Summer+Collection+2009+1

Although it’s a tiny collection it really covers just about anything you could possibly want in a Summer collection. I’m quite excited about trying it all. You can get 10% Off and Free Shipping with your $50 order by entering the code BRONZE at check out! So go shop! Please for the love of god get the Crush Palettes! You’ll love ‘em!

The Body Shop Summer Collection 2009: The Body Shop Hot Brights Summer Collection

The+Body+Shop+Summer+Collection+2009+The+Body+Shop+Hot+Brights+Summer+Collection++4569

The Body Shop Hot Brights Summer Collection is available online kids! If you’re wanting a fun, slightly funky look for your Summer look do check it.

Jump ahead for the full retails on this collection!

The Body Shop Summer Collection looks interesting enough this year. The packaging is always interesting with The Body Shop and they didn’t fail at making a fun packaging for it’s Hot Brights Collection. The palettes have sweet flower motif emblems on the covers, quite nice. The collection doesn’t have a whole lot of wow inspiring colors but I see a few odd pieces that I can get on board with! The collection is sectioned into two groups, one being the color cosmetics and the other being the sun/tanning/bronzing collection. This is normally how The Body Shop does their collection every year so you have two available options of either color or a more tropical, Summery look using their bronze items. Have a look below for more details!

Excel Summer 2009: Excel Shimmer Mix Shadow

Excel+Shimmer+3

My little eye spies the brand new Excel Shimmer Mix Shadows available from Sana this Summer!

Excel+Shimmer+2

Pretties!

Available in three shades for 1,260 yen each these pretty mosaic shadows look quite interesting. I have three of these LE’s from a few year’s ago but they are solid colors and not as pretty. The finish is a heavy duty shimmer so if you’re not a big fan of such a finish I’d avoid but for those of us that are sparkle junkies these should please!

Excel+Shimmer+1

Colors available are SM01 (Pink), SM02 (Gold) and SM03 (Green).

Excel+Shimmer+4

Wants ‘em!
