My sis is absolutely in lust with all things Donna Karan particularly Cashmere Mist. For the past several years Donna Karan Cashmere is her signature scent of choice. Recently, I found out that the scent is turning 15 years old. Gasp! Who knew?
DK created the signature scent out of love for the luxurious fabric because she adores it and designs with it, wears it, sleeps with it, and uses it all year round. The Muse can appreciate that feeling as cashmere is such a gorgeous, posh fabric and so positively soft on skin!
The scent itself is as comforting and soft as the fabric with a combination of sensual lily of the valley, vanilla, amber, and bergamot. The line itself is so popular (not only with my sister but everyone else on the planet) that the collection consists of twenty different products including shampoo.
Happy Birthday Cashmere Mist! Funny as my sister’s birthday is in August too…how fitting!

Pop Beauty Lush Blush was on sale a few weeks ago on ASOS. Gawd, the Muse is kicking herself for not getting it back than. She’s lemming it terribly. It’s such a cute little blush, I needs it in my life don’t you see?
Jump ahead for a babble and more pictures.
Pop Beauty has been releasing quite a few items as of late. For some reason upon their exit from Sephora I was scared they’d pull completely out of the US but they are very much alive, kicking, and open for business on their website. Bless be as I adore the line.
The new Pop Beauty Lush Blush has captured and held my attention as of late. The cute design has a sponge top applicator (common in Japanese blushes) and a nifty little flip top lid. I admit the rather spunky little packaging tickles me most but I’m likely leaning towards the interesting shade they have entitled Cherry Blossom (deep rosy red shade) as well.
The blush comes in three shades which are Peach Blossom (apricot), Cherry Blossom (rosy red), and Rose Blossom (pink). For the most part I’m leaning towards Cherry Blossom at the moment. My hand is just about ready to hit that submit button….somebody stop me please?
Available for $18.50 now from www.popbeauty.co.uk

If you shop Kohl’s it’s likely you browse around the American Beauty Cosmetics display and check out what Ashley Judd is up. My sister simply adores Kohls so while she’s busy getting her Kohls sale jive on I normally wander around the cosmetic counter and aisles to see what’s new with Flirt and American Beauty.
For a bargain department store Kohls has a pretty extensive array of beauty items that they carry, American Beauty being one of their in house brands.
Jump ahead for a peep at keeping your peachy Summer glow with American Beauty Perfect Mineral Loose Powder Blush.
If you’re a lover of mineral blushes you’re sure to enjoy the American Beauty Perfect Mineral Loose Powder Blush. This little guy is a loose mineral blush available in six shades for $18.50 (it’s on sale right now for $14.80). If you’re busy comparing it to your BE blushes you must know that it’s about triple the size and considerably larger for the price. It comes with a brush for application but I honestly didn’t love it. It sheds terribly and the bristles are awful scratchy.
Aside from the crummy brush the actual blush is quite nice particularly the shade I have which is Nude Sand. Nude Sand is a deep coral shade with a very subtle shimmer. The blush is silky smooth and blends beautifully leaving behind quite a pigmented pop of peach to my cheeks. It gives a very nice glowy look to my face and cheeks. The formula is very lightweight and long wearing for a natural, healthy finish.
Overall, it’s worthy of a pick up if you’re at Kohls. It’s a rather fab way of keeping that Summer glow all through Fall!
Say hello to my new little friend:
La Mer The Radiant Concealer!
Jump ahead for my review and swatches of this new concealer from La Mer.
$65 could prove too much to splurge on a concealer but honestly I’m willing to spend my life savings on anything to make me look well rested and flawless. I can’t be the only one feeling that way!
The new La Mer The Radiant Concealer doesn’t come cheap but it does what it promises and that my friends is worth it’s weight in gold.
This concealer comes housed in a super chic white case with a mirror plate proudly displaying the “La Mer” on it’s cover. Kicking up the packaging further is the fact that it comes with a faux leather carrying case and mini concealer brush and here you have yourself a super chic piece of cosmetic.
The Muse is in love with the fact that Le Mer continues to extend it’s cosmetic line further and further as of late and of course couldn’t be happier about a concealer release as hey she happens to be utterly obsessed with concealers as you may know from reading her babblings.
With a formula that sports an SPF 25 and gemstones that capture the light to mask dark circles and blemishes this concealer is ready to do battle with your worst flaws.
I have dry under eyes so I normally seek out the most moisturizing concealer I can find but I do so admit that a concealer with a harder, tackier texture actually offers me the longest wear. This is the formula this concealer sports. It’s not creamy or moisturizing and has a harder texture than my normal round of coverage but it still manages to blend seamlessly and wears incredibly long. My dry eyes don’t seem to mind the formula at all so it’s not creeping into fine lines or caking up. Once blended it wears all day without failing me. The pigmentation is very good and it manages to conceal my main worries such as fine lines, puffy eyes, and dark circles.
Overall, it’s ability to wear stay in place all day makes it a gem of a concealer for this Muse. It covers completely and allows a flawless, well rested look.
Quite a great concealer. The price is high but well worth every penny.
Anyone try yet?
Tell the Muse!
