I love that Stila is embracing it’s roots and packaging their new Stila Backstage with Lea Rose Collection in a cute little can! The can is cardboard but the Muse is still loving that they are taking things backwards and kicking it old school.

Mmmhmm the Muse listens to everything you say. Remember when some of us were complaining that Urban Decay 24/7 Liners just don’t stay put?
Have no fear!
Benefit to the rescue with it’s new Badgal Liner Waterproof……oooOoooOoo! Ahhh! Whoa….could this be the solution to lasting liner all day long?
This Muse doesn’t many problems in the liner department as she rarely wears eyeliner however she wouldn’t mind at all if she could find a liner that lasts all day without wearing out from her waterline!
Her waterline is one particular place where liner fails to stay. Although Urban Decay 24/7 Liners last pretty much all day the Muse does find a touch up here and there never hurts.
However, Benefit BADGal Eyeliner sounds exactly what she needs!
Promises to keep you rocking through rain or shine and lasts right up until you take it off. Sounds to good to be true? Maybe! Remains to be determined! The Muse must get her hands on some and see how well it holds up to her tests!

The Muse was feeling every so hopeful that the new Body Shop RoseFlower Lips would turn out as good as they looked in the promo pictures. Although for the most part it was the Roseflower Blush that called my name, I do so admit that the lippes were equally as beautiful.
Turns out they are beautiful and have a super fab formula to go along with ‘em too!
Read ahead to find out all about them!
I’m pretty impressed overall with The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Spring Collection. In particular I thought that The Body Shop paid special attention to packaging this year which didn’t go unnoticed by this Muse, whom happens to be a packaging junkie. The new RoseFlower lipsticks come housed in a crystal clear tube which for the most part isn’t anything too special however wrapped around the inside tube is a gorgeous pink overlay with pretty little rose flower emblems that totally tickled this Muse.
Aside from the uber pretty packaging the lipsticks themselves are truly a rather great find. I tried out two of the three shades and both were very pretty and flattering for the Spring weather. The formula is nicely moisturizing and leaves behind a shiny, glossy pigmented pout. As advertised the lipsticks contain organic beeswax and marula oil which repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier. In keeping with it’s rose theme the lipsticks taste and smell like a delicate rose which adds a certain charm to the overall lipstick. If you’re lips tend to be drier you’ll love the formula as gloss is completely optional considering that the lipsticks themselves leave behind a nice shiny lip look.
The colors I tried were Deep Pink and True Pink. Although both shades were lovely I thought True Pink was the better rose shade that paired up beautifully with pink cheeks and a pink eye look that I created this morning. Deep Pink is strangely named as there isn’t any question it’s pink but it’s more of a fun fuchsia shade rather than a true deep pink shade.
At $16 USD per a lipstick I didn’t think they were too badly price considering they deliver with a high quality lipstick and lovely packaging to go along with it.
Overall, I’m quite pleased with both shades and think I’ll add the 3rd shade to my collection. Perfect for your Spring looks, Roseflower Lips from the Body Shop are Muse Approved for purchase. The Muse liked ‘em alot!
On your wish list?

Breathing new life into your skin is now quite cheap thanks to Avon liiv Botanicals Collection.
The Muse thinks combining a fine quality product with an inexpensive price tag is quite nice and she can have both with the new liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter.
Ok, so this stuff is seriously my latest obsession. Considering my skin needs as much moisture as it can get when the cold weather sets in, I’m all over liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter.
$10 bucks people! That’s right $10! Loves it.
liiv Botanicals has a whole lot of awesome going on with it’s brand new facial and body collection. The line is clinically and demagogically tested, suitable for even sensitive skin as a preservative-free and dry-free product. The collection is a holistic beauty care collection that harvests plant power to restore vitality to skin. Whoa. Count me impressed.
But aside from all that the more important thing would be how awesome it smells….gorgeous. It’s a combination of a certain freshness with a hint of floral and a whole lot of crisp ozone that combines to create a beautiful healthy blend that’s quite alluring.
liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter is an ultra-rich body butter that’s super thick and made for various skin types, especially dry skin! This moisturizing body butter immediately hydrates my skin and makes it smell quite pretty too! My rough elbows and knees literally suck up the formula while it leaves behind silky, smooth skin. The body butter absorbs easily without leaving behind a greasy mess.
Count the Muse impressed that a body butter costs as little as $10 USD and smells quite brilliant, contains good for you ingredients, and makes my skin super soft.
