mark Mists Juicy Body Fragrance

Oooo I want the new mark Mists Juicy Body Fragrances! They look darling!

mark+Mists+Juicy+Body+Fragrance

Jump for the deets!

Juicy Peach, Luscious Mango, Tangerine Squeeze, and Very Watermelon sound absolutely heavenly in a body mist! I’m such a fan of fruity fragrances in the Summer and these sound just the thing.

The catch?

They are $10 bucks each and only 3.2 oz in size.

Mark what in the world are you thinking? You guys are known for fun, inexpensive beauty finds. Why such a high price tag guys!?

For this price I can go to Victoria’s Secret or Bath and Body Works and get triple the size for less!

Loves ‘em but will skip on that price tag!

Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder Maui Review

I raved Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder for you last week and I decided that since I already had added Antigua to my beauty arsenal it was about time I also hauled Maui.

So away I went to Nordies to nail myself thee most delightful shade of bronzer I ever did meet.

Click for it!

After testing out Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder in Antigua and getting a few emails telling me how I had to haul Maui too I gave in and headed to Nordies to purchase myself a compact. Ever so happy I did! Thanks to everyone who rec’ed it as it’s delightful. I had it in my head for a while that I also wanted Maui but after the many raves I knew for sure it would be special. A simple glance at the display had me nodding and telling the sale associate, “Yes, please, ring that one up!”

If anything at all Maui is actually even more flattering than Antigua as it’s such a pretty shimmery golden pink. I can’t say enough good things about these shades that Bobbi added to her bronzer collection. Truly pink it’s so universally flattering and as a bronzer it’s just idiot proof to apply. A quick buff with a kabuki and you’re left with sunkissed pink cheeks that give off such a pretty shimmer of color.

Maui is considerably truer pink than Antigua is. Where as Antigua sports a slightly dusky, dirty rose shade, Maui is more a truer pink with hints of golden shimmer. Granted, I think both are killer shades but I’m ever so happy I hauled Maui as I seem to adore it even more. These are the only two pinks in the collection and I believe Maui was released last year where as Antigua is the LE shade for this year. I’m hopeful next year we’ll have another version of pink to choose from.

Nothing makes bronzer feel user friendly like a delightful shade of pink!

Loving you Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder in Maui (and you too Antigua!).

Anyone own Maui?

How about Antigua?

Share it!

Sportin’ Maui!

Clean, Fresh Summer Fragrance: Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Coral Review

My sister is a real fan of clean scents. Cotton, linen, etc….really appeal to her. I can’t really say the same as I’m more of a sweet, fruity type myself. Recently, I tested out Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Coral and was pleasantly surprised at what a fresh, clean scent it was.


Click it for the review.

Although fruity blends speak to me in the Summer I admit that the freshness and gentleness of Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Coral seems an ideal scent for warmer, humid weather. The fragrance has a certain contradiction of complexity and simplicity. With notes of Chinese Berry, Pink Peppercorns, Apple Blossoms, Waterfruits, and Cear Aldehydes it combines to create a fresh, floral, crisp, clean scent that’s sure to please anyone who can appreciate a softer fragrance.


Linen does come to mind when it hits my nose first spray. Inviting and soft like a towel from the dryer. Drown down is more of a crisp, floral that still manages to remain fresh with an every so slight sweetness.

Truly Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Pink Coral is something special. I’m really enjoying this one for warm Summer evenings.

Beautiful, simply beautiful.

Who might like this?

  • Anyone who adores very fresh, clean scents.
  • Anyone who enjoys a lighter scent for the warmer weather.
  • Anyone who adores scents that are both fresh and floral.

Anyone smell this yet or buy?

Tell the Muse!
