Victoria’s Secret Summer Collection 2009: Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection

Victoria%27s+Secret+Pool+Party+Collection+6

Let me tell you something, it’s cold outside! The weather doesn’t know what it wants to do. Is it Summer? Is it Spring? Is it Winter? On lawd please decide already! Well even if it’s not feeling Spring or Summer-like outside I’m still feeling the love for the Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection!

Jump for it!

Before I tell you all about the Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection allow me to mention the fact that Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Eye Shadow are now in press form! ‘ello Awesome! They aren’t on the website yet but I got three of them yesterday in some nice looking shades. It looks like there are a total of five shades available and they seem really nice (haven’t yet used them on my eyes). I got this incredible aqua shade that reminds me of a pool! Pretties!

Anyway! On to the rest of the good stuff!

Victoria%27s+Secret+Pool+Party+Collection+5

Victoria’s Secret Limited Editon Pool Party Body Chiller Mist is available in three scents. Lemonita (Sweet, Tart Lemon), Coolada (Tropical Coconut Blend), and Frostea (Cool, Crisp, Fresh Brewed Ice Tea). These were quite the surprise for me as I thought they were the typical Beauty Rush Double Mists but oh no they aren’t! They happen to be regular body sprays! I’m quite excited about this as I do find that the double mists are a tad oily and the scent doesn’t linger as long as I’d like. I’m excited to try these out. I snagged all three of ‘em for 3 for $25 USD! Review coming shortly!

The scents also come in a Body Chiller Glimmer Cream (shimmering body cream) and Body Drink Lotion.

Face Stockholm Go Natural Mineral Foundation Review & Face Stockholm Magic Wand Review

face

Call the Muse overzealous but her “Day of Beauty” post was inspired by her absolute love of two things that she adored about Face Stockholm’s Spring Collection. The Go Natural Mineral Foundation and the Magic Wand. I cannot begin to express my absolute delight with both of these products. I think each deserves it’s own review post but I decided to group them into one “Face” post!

Check below for the full review!

If you know anything at all about the Muse you know she abhors mineral makeup. It makes me itchy, it feels like a mask on, my dry skin hates it, and I just feel like I have way too much makeup on when I use it. I’ve come across maybe one or two mineral foundations I like but even those have ended up deep in the bowels of my unused makeup draw.

Until now.

When I first got my hands on Face Stockholm Go Natural Mineral Foundation I was quickly of the mentality, “oh no another mineral foundation!” I was bracing myself for a bad case of itching and terrible flaky results due to my dry skin. Oh my gosh so not the case with this mineral foundation.


The foundation is paraben free and allows your skin to breath (even dry skin!) It simply blurs across your face and leaves behind weightless coverage. Plus did I mention it has UVA/UVB protection? Likey!

If you have had terrible experiences with mineral makeup in the pass I highly suggest checking this powder out. If I can love it anyone can love it.

Since this is all about the face I thought I’d also introduce you to the Face Stockholm Magic Wand Concealer Pen. This pen is just as great as my Dior Radiance Pen! It’s nicely pigmented, moisturizing, and conceals dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness in a flash. My dry eyes adore this! It comes in a click style pen which is always a plus with the Muse as it makes it travel friendly and mess-free application too.


Both Face Stockholm Go Natural Mineral Foundation Review & Face Stockholm Magic Wand are Muse Approved for purchase!
