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?

Ahhh blessed relief. Let’s all let out a collection sigh of utter, blissful relief. My good friend Iris from Rouge Deluxe reports about the Lavshuca Fall Collection 2009 and what a pleasant surprise it is!
Finally something great to look forward to from Lavshuca this year.
With it’s disappointing release after release as of late Lavshuca has fallen into the do not buy list for the Muse. Look at Summer, utter disappointment there!
My last known purchase from Lavshuca was Summer 2008 and I do think, currency conversion aside, this is testimony how bad collections have been as of late from Japan. Because seriously if I’m not hauling something is terribly wrong.
But have no fear the Lavshuca Fall Collection 2009 is so something special to look forward to it appears. The floral motif and interesting color selection shown in the photo above is enough of a reason to get this Muse excited. I’m looking forward to how this develops and I’ll start saving my pennies as of now so I might indulge. Iris reports the following items will be released:
- Lavshuca Light Mix Eyes (5 Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Grade Color Eyes (1 New Shade Selection)
- Lavshuca Dual Prism Eyes (2 New Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Full Baloon Rouge (15 Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Rouge Star Classics (2 New Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Power Memory Eyebrow (2 Shade Selections)
- Lavshuca Power Memory Eyeliner (1 Shade Selection)
- Lavshuca Pore Concealer Base
Count me excited for Fall to get here!
Wanna Beauty Babble with me? During our last babble we were hit with survival beauty
and all the essentials we’d need in dire situations.
How To Play:
The Beauty Babble section basically is a scenario of “possibilities” with questions and answers about what you’d do in situations where cosmetics would be needed!
Today’s babble is about various weather conditions and makeup items or skincare you’d need in such situations!

You head to work on Monday expecting it to be like any other day of the week when your boss pulls you aside with some incredible news. He relates to you that he wants to send you to London for the entire Summer to work at the UK branch. You’re so excited you can’t believe your good luck! As soon as you leave his office you dial up your best friend who lives in England to share the details. Your best friend informs you that it would be a terrible time to come to London right now because the predicted weather for the next three months is gloomy, cloudy weather and rain! You’re kinda feel badly after you hear this especially since you’re having perfect Summer weather right at home. You keep your chin up and decided you’ll need a few makeup essentials to bring Summer with you to cold, dreary London. What will they be (choose five)?
I’d choose a fun Summer scent, a great bronzer, a pretty shade of blush, a shimmery, Summery palette for my eyes, and a good primer to keep my makeup from falling off my face in the rain!
Fragrance: Harajuku Lovers G
Warm, coconut will help me think Summer during those rainy days!
Urban Decay Baked Bronze in Glided
As if you haven’t heard enough how much I love this bronzer! Shimmery cheeks with hint of gold and peach will bring a little sun to my cloudy day in London!
MAC Eversun Blush
My ideal blush this Summer and plenty peachy to bring a little color into my world on dreary days!
Kate Von D Gypsy Eyeshadow Palette
A slew of Summery greens to spring up my look in the rain!
Korres Face Primer
Love this stuff! Keeps my makeup so fresh! Hopefully it’ll help keep it waterproof too!
Your best friend asks you to dinner on Friday night and explains she has amazing news to tell you! You meet up with her and as you’re ordering dinner she springs on you she’s getting married to an Arabian Sheikh. With your mouth hanging open you gasp in shock! After getting over your shock you gush how excited you are for her. After the waiter leaves with your order you proceed to ask her for all the details. She explains that the wedding will take place in the Sahara Desert. Trying not to gasp in shock you begin plotting skincare items you’re going to need to keep your face properly moist. Pick three items to keep your skin in order!
Lush Ocean Salt
Most people don’t use Ocean Salt on their face because they feel it’s too harsh but I happen to love it! It’s ideal for those crazy desert days when my skin begins to flake up!
Mandom Perfect Assist 24 Double Moist Cream
This will keep my skin moist and dewy while the sun is beating down on my head!
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun Block
Gotta have high SPF for those sunny days in the desert! 85+ on this one! w00t!
Ok! Now it’s your turn. The desert and dreary, cold rain for three months! Babble it peeps and tell me what you’d need to survive these nasty weather conditions.
Click ahead for a babble or two!
The British Beauty Blogger found these on Spoiled Brat. Gosh it brings back such memories. I remember when Pupa did all sorts of cutesy styles like these. Remember the Pupa Le’Diable Devil Kit? Spoiled Brat has that too! What a hoot! I didn’t even think Pupa made these things anymore for the European market outside of Italy!
These kawaii Pupa Ocean Glitter palettes look like they have four shadows inside, two blushes, and two glosses (or lip creams). Incredibly cute and brings back so many memories when Sephora used to carry Pupa!
Anyone remember the good old Pupa days?
