As you begin preparations to pack up for college you’ll notice plenty of cosmetics, hair and skin care goodies launching new lines to tempt and tease you at check out. You obviously need to wash your hair while away at school…ok, I’ll be fair…some of us don’t bother washing while we’re at school especially laundry nor do we sleep or eat anything that doesn’t come from a vending machine, it’s cool, we’ve all been there. However, budget friendly options are available so at the very least let’s try to keep our hair squeaky clean.

Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Collection is a new line of products designed to work together to achieve a touchable tousled look. Believe me I TRY so hard to gain this look it’s not even funny. Stiff, crunchy hair is OUT, soft, tousled locks are so IN.


Check out the brand new Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Collect below (it’s budget friendly too).

If you’re a fan of Herbal Essences you’ll be happy to know the entire line is quite budget friendly with a $2.99 price tag (aside from the finishing cream marked at a reasonable $5.49 for a large jar). So if you’re looking to snag some hair care to tote away with you to school or you’re in need of soft, tousled curls that aren’t going to cost you a ton of cash check out some of these options!

Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Shampoo and Conditioner $2.99
Cleanses hair without stripping and smells super fresh and pretty too!

Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Finishing Cream $5.49
My favorite of the products. This is a soft conditioning cream for wet hair that makes your tresses oh so soft and scented pretty.


You know the Muse, she’s normally a Lush fan for life but I can be occasionally tempted to the dark side to indulge in cheap drugstore hair care goodies. Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Collection is particularly good for someone like me who avoids hair dryers like the plague. The products can all be used on my wet hair to create soft, frizz-free curls that are gently tousled and pretty. For $2.99 it’s not going to change your hair’s life but it sure will attempt to!

Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Collection is available now at your local drugstore.

Stay tuned for more back to school beauty buys in upcoming posts.

Twilight Beauty Cosmetics: Twilight-Inspired Makeup Collection

twilight+beauty+cosmetics

Spoiled Pretty has the deets on the new Twilight inspired cosmetic collection. We already knew that DuWop was busy creating something special for us in the works that was Twilight themed but I don’t think ANYONE has realized how big a collection this is turning out to be.

Click it below to read the deets!

Yes well call me what you will but I’m a fan of Twilight so I’m excited to see how this line turns out. My original thought was DuWop would create a small selection of items to pair up with the new V Gloss they introduced earlier this month. Nope, not the case. It’s even bigger and better than that!

The beauty line actually consists of two separate collections. It’s actually entitled Twilight Beauty so they are taking this above and beyond a simple release from one brand.

Twilight Beauty will launch two different lines of cosmetics which will be entitled Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight. The two lines will be available with the second film’s release this Fall.

Spoiled Pretty reports that Esmy Manica and Kimbery Clark of All About Beauty and Cristina Bartolucci, the founder and Creative Director of DuWop Cosmetics, are part of the development team behind the Twilight Beauty Cosmetic Line.

The line will include over 70 products!!!!!! Holy cow! That’s a brand all in itself so you can see how interesting this is shaping up to be.

Luna Twilight is inspired by the female characters of the books with an array of soft, natural beauty looks and stunning, fierce ones. Some products will include First Light Body and Face Glow and Gleam Metallic Mascara.

Volturi Twilight is inspired by the Volturi family crest. The line features Foreshadow Primer which is coupled with a loose glitter dust called Labrynth Shadows. These loose powder shadows are supposedly highly pigmented and are housed in stackable pots providing the ability to mix and match colors.

Luna Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 at Dillardís and Nordstrom. Volturi Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 through specialty retailers. Both lines will be sold at TwilightBeauty.com, the exclusive website for both brands.

I’m highly interested in checking this out for myself as I’m curious about colors, products, and prices.

What do you think?

Love the idea of an entire line dedicateto Twilight?

Not so much?

Musings of the Day: Picture Perfect and Airbrushed Finish!

I was just looking at the new Temptu AIRbrush Makeup System on Sephora and hoping I’d win the lotto so I can make extremely over indulgent airbrush gadgetry purchases.

I’ve never been airbrushed before but when I’m rich and famous I plan to airbrush every part of my face and body thanks so much.

Which brings me to my Musings for today! Would you use an in home airbrush system to get yourself picture perfect? Have you used one before? What did you think?

Tell the Muse and click below to hear my tale!

As luxurious and incredible as an airbrush of my very own sounds I so know I’d make an utter mess of application. I’d probably end up foundationing my bathroom walls instead of my face knowing how goofy I am. I can’t recall the system but I remember seeing an infomercial a few years ago with an in home airbrush system and totally being sold on it and almost buying the bloody thing!

I’ve never had the airbrush experience but I’d totally be up for trying it out. Sephora should offer to test this out, I’d be first in line!

What do you think?

I’m looking forward to this collection as I’m enjoying all the tweed browns and shades of olive green I’m seeing as of late. It really screams Fall to me.
