Summer Scents: C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum Review

When word of C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum hit the Muse was quite hyped for a sniff. She loves all of the C.O. Bigelow Lemon Collection and the general idea of a lemony fragrance along the same vein absolutely thrilled her to bits and pieces.


Check out my review of C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum

Considering the formula is inspired by it’s Lemon Body Cream I was all about hauling this as quickly as I could get my greedy hands on it. I admit I was worried they’d end up messing it up with notes it didn’t need especially since the description reads of green lemon leaves, creamy undertones, and a warm white musk. That sounds all nice and lovely but honestly the Lemon Body Cream is more about straight up sweet, tart lemon without all the unnecessary extras. You know what I mean dontcha?


I was pleasantly surprised that it does indeed smells simply like lemon, particularly like C.O. Bigelow Lemon Body Cream. No fanfare here it’s just sparkling, fruity, and sweet, with a round of tartness which blends it out to a happy effervescent note that the body lotion lacks. It’s quite lovely and light, beautiful for Summer wear.

I absolutely love it.


C.O. went all out with the packaging on this guy as well. It’s a large glass bottle that’s 3.5oz in size but feels way larger. Right now it’s Buy Two C.O. Bigelow items and Get Two Free including this fragrance which regularly retails for $34 USD so if you have a friend (or just overindulge yourself) you can split the costs between the two of you. It retails for $34.50 USD and I think it’s well worth picking up. I admit I was slightly disappointed that it didn’t last longer on my skin so I was left touching up after two hours or so but regardless it’s such a nice Summer scent that I can’t resist Muse Approving it for purchase. If you absolutely adore the C.O. Bigelow Lemon line or you’re just simply a lover of lemony scents this one is for you. Truly a great blend for Summer!

Jelly Pong Pong Brush Set Review

The Muse recently shared the joys of Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Gift Bags with you. Inside of one of the gift bags she purchased was the brand new Jelly Pong Pong Brush Set. Wahoo travel friendly brush sets are my down fall. I tend to over collect brushes when in fact I only need 3 or 4 to get the job done. But that never stops me from purchasing ridiculous amounts of brushes or sets, etc….it’s a disease.

I know many of you were curious if this particular set was worthy of a pick up.

Click it to see if it is.

I’m in high debate if the Jelly Pong Pong Brush Set is worthy of it’s $12 USD price tag. Considering I got mine in a Deluxe Gift Bag I’m feeling like it was a deal however splurging out $12 on it doesn’t appeal simply because it includes an eyebrow brush which I know will end up tossed in the bottom of a draw somewhere plus one of the brushes isn’t technically a brush it’s a sponge smudger. Taking away from all this the price still works out to less than $3 bucks a brush which isn’t bad at all.

Aside from the brow brush I’ll definitely get use out of the remaining four tools. The brushes are all extra soft and silky however not as dense as many brushes I’ve used for application in the pass. This could be a deal breaker if you like brushes a bit denser and stiffer. Personally I didn’t mind the extra softness and thought they had a certain quality to them for the price.

These make a rather fine travel friendly set and were included along with the Jelly Pong Pong Muffin and Meringue Gloss Set so I feel like I got a rather nice deal getting both item together. The set includes a blush brush, a smudger, a brow brush, and shadow shaders.

They aren’t MAC brushes but they aren’t half bad either. If you’re purchasing some Jelly Pong Pong items or a deluxe bag sliding these into your cart as well for a little test isn’t a hardship. It’s worth it if you don’t have a ton of brushes or you want some brushes to knock around with when traveling rather than bringing your more expensive tools along for the trip!

Beauty News: 50 Cent Launches Cosmetic Line For Men

Is the economy so bad that 50 Cent isn’t doing so well in the record industry? Shrug. Who knows could be but whatever the case is 50 Cent decided that he has a calling, a calling that includes cosmetics for men.

Jump it for the news!

The Cut reports that 50 Cent is launching his own line of cosmetics for men. His line will include moisturizers as well as health supplements which supposedly he feels will “butch” the line up. Umm ok….I dunno if supplements make it any less girly but we still love you 50 (and maybe said supplements will make a man more regular)! And hey if Diddy can do perfume who says you can’t go around creating manly man eye cream!

Go on with your bad self 50!
