Someone told me that March comes in like a lion and goes out like lamb but it was actually pretty tame this year but hells April now that was some sincerely crummy weather. April flowers brings May flowers, abso-freaking-lutely! It’s been rain and cold since almost the first day of April. Yak! With showers brings many bad hair days all around. Frizzy nightmare! The rain makes a Muse’s hair stand up on end like Einstein. Granted the geek inside the Muse doesn’t mind in the least being compared to Einstein however she’s not so sure about the hair.
Have no fear Sunsilk Captivating Curls has me covered to keep the evil frizz at bay and keep my wavy, curly hair nice and tame!
With four ways to tame your curls it’s easy enough to avoid scary Einstein hair with a full line of budget friendly products from the new Sunsilk Captivating Curls Collection.
Sunsilk Captivating Curls Shampoo and Conditioner features plant extract aloe-e to help tame unruly frizz and define curls. The Must thinks it smells rather pretty of peach and gardenia so you’re left with fresh scented curls as well as tame ones.
Sunsilk Captivating Curls De-frizz Leave-in Creme is my new best friend, totally repurchasing when I run out. It’s a soft cream conditioner that you can leave in for taming frizz and keeping curls happy.
Sunsilk Captivating Curls Gel & Cream Twist is a unique blend that provides conditioning benefits of a cream and a gel. This does a great job of taming frizz and defining curls but it weighted my hair down a fair bit so I did have to use with caution.
Lastly Sunsilk Captivating Curls Scrunching Mousse creates full-bodied, bouncy curls for a romantic look. Kept curls tame, controlled, and beautiful.
Although the Muse is a lushie haircare girl at heart she can appreciate the fresh scent and curl taming power of the Sunsilk line plus who doesn’t love haircare that costs under $4 bucks. Loves it. If you’re looking for a line to get your curls under control do check out the SunSilk Captivating Curls Collection!
Snag your wellies and head out in the rain to sing because SunSilk has you covered, be gone frizz!

The Muse has been a fan of Villainess Soaps for years now. She recently was thinking what a great Beauty Discovery it would make here at Musings as some of you perhaps never heard of this e-tailer!
Jump ahead to discover Villainess!
I thought that Villainess would make a great beauty discovery because they recently introduced a new skincare line to their normal routine. The new About Face collection includes mud masks and a makeup remover. Quite exciting to say the least.
For it’s fans Villainess is known for it’s incredibly unique round up of soaps that have a bit of a dark edge to them but are delightful none the less. Big slabs of colorful soap in an array of beautiful blends make up the catalog at Villainess with frequent introductions to special limited edition soaps that are available for a very short time which are known as “Temporary Insanity” this is what makes Villainess an interesting and fun bathing experience.
Villainess branches out to getting your skin not only clean but soft and dewy as well with it’s line of body scrubs that they call Smooch! And of course an entire line of whipped body creams wraps up their catalog. Recently, perfume oils have also made a guest starring appearance as of late!
Although the collection isn’t huge the release of new blends quite often keeps things fresh and of course keeps fans clamoring back for more please. With the introduction of it’s new face muds and makeup remover the catalog delves deeper into keeping not only our bodies squeaky clean but our faces as well.
I’ll be reviewing a few pieces I recently purchased for you in an upcoming post including the brand new muds but I thought I’d introduce you to Villainess Soaps today and tell you what a great beauty discovery it is!

Knowing how much of a fan girl I am when it comes to NARS you can imagine how hyped I was over the release of a concealer from NARS. Considering NARS has such an incredible line up it’s always put this Muse in a state of shock that such an extensive line of product only ever included a simple stick concealer. Stick concealer? What is this 1960? Of course NARS more than makes up for it’s lack of coverage by bringing out uber fabulous shadows and blushes but the Muse was always feeling a bit empty inside without a super amazing concealer to go along with all those other great beauty bits and bobs from our friends at NARS.
To my delight with the Spring Collection 2009 a brand new NARS Duo Concealer was released! Whoa, likey!
I can go for this. Jump ahead to see if I’m loving NARS Duo Concealer!
The Muse is never one for beating around the bush when it comes to something she really, really loves or something she strongly dislikes. In this case she’s feeling utterly devastated how much she didn’t like it this new NARS concealer. Le sigh.
The duo concealer is made up of two shades for mixing and combining your perfect color combination. I honestly thought these were going to be a creamy, dreamy moisturizing formula…um not so much. It deserves to be mentioned that the product has serious raves on Sephora. For me that’s rather puzzling as I didn’t find much at all to rave about but I did read through each review diligently because I wanted to see what it was that was so exciting about this concealer.
Main problem is the formula and second problem is pigmentation. The formula is a thin consistency that’s very hard for lack of a better word, so much so that it makes blending an absolute nightmare. Coverage is extremely sheer so don’t expect to cover up much with this in regards to dark circles, fine lines, etc…it’s merely a very lightweight coverage that blends like utter rubbish and proceeds to dry out your skin and settle badly into fine lines.
I did notice most of those who reviewed the product on Sephora were in their teens or twenties. Perhaps the Muse is simply an old lady with too much to cover. I personally wouldn’t indulge if you have dark circles, fine lines, or puffiness, generally speaking if you have a whole lot of stuffins going on under your eyes don’t think NARS Duo Concealer is going to cover it.
If you desire a light weight coverage and like concealers that aren’t thick, creamy, or moisturizing but simply light and a bit hard in texture this might very well be something you love.
As for this Muse she’s terribly disappointed and will hold out hope that maybe NARS will go ahead and release a click pen concealer in the future or a more moisturizing concealer. Until than this Muse is sticking with Bobbi Brown
and Mally Beauty
for her concealing needs.
