The Muse was babbling to you yesterday about the Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection. Quite an exciting little collection of goodies to get hyped over to say the least.
Today I’ll be bringing you a review of the brand new Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Body Chiller Mists! Gotta love ‘em for a burst of refreshing Summer scent!
Check ‘em out after the jump!
Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Body Chiller Mists are available in three brand new, limited edition scents for $12 USD each or 3 for $25. The scents are Lemonita, Coolada, and Frostea. The bottles are shaped just like the Victoria’s Secret Double Mist Body Sprays which lead me to believe these were double mists but they are actually body mists.
As I mentioned in my original post about these I was quite happy to see they were body mists. I find body mists are easier to apply and the scent lingers a tad longer than the double mists. The double mists are quite nice but they apply a tad oily plus the scent just gets sucked into my skin and fails to last all day. I was hopeful these might last a while longer. As predicted they do last a fair bit longer than the double mists formula but within a very few hours time you’ll need a refresher but none the less they do last out considerably well when compared to double mists.
Out of the three Lemonita is my favorite. It’s a cool, tart, refreshing lemon scent. It’s rare to come across lemon scents that are true in body and this just hits the right notes. If your a fan of lemons you’re sure to love this. Frostea is a delightfully sweet, fresh brewed ice tea scent and Coolada is a Pina Colada blend that’s heavy on the coconut!
All three are unique, fun blends for Summer. Even though they fail to linger long I still love them and think they are worth picking up. The scents have Summer fun written all over them and the burst of scent they do provide really gets me in the mood for warm weather!
Muse Approving these for purchase. I think they are worthy of a pick up!
Anyone try yet?
Tell the Muse!
A HUGE thanks to a reader who caught me mentioning how much I adore the scent of Soap & Glory and telling me, “Muse, you do know they make a body mist right?” What? A body mist? Where? How? Who? Why wasn’t I sent the memo about this?
I somehow missed the boat on this! Whoa. See, allow me to explain. The reason I missed this was because I always noticed the spray on lotion and actually this is what I thought was being recommended to me. But I ran to Target as fast as my little legs could carry me to take a lookiee just to be sure I didn’t miss anything. Low and behold, indeed there was a body mist! Oh. my. god. I nearly passed out in the aisle.
Jump ahead for my take on it!
Soap & Glory Mist You Madly is indeed a body mist that smells like that signature Soap & Glory scent. The blend is a combination of Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Magnolia, Freesia, Vanilla, and Musk. The Soap & Glory scent is such an incredibly complex blend to describe but for the most part it sorta reminds me of a unisex scent that leans towards a more muscular fragrance but pretty none the less.
I was excited to try out Mist You Madly and was hopeful I’d be smelling Soap & Glory-like! The mist comes in quite a nice size of 8.4oz for $11.99 USD. Not bad. Good price, good size.
After trying it out I was a teeny tiny disappointed for two reasons. One, it didn’t smell quite like the Soap & Glory scent. Something is different but I’m not sure what. Could be a bit too much musk or too much vanilla but it doesn’t quite have that twang that the other items in the Soap & Glory line has. Secondly, I hosed myself down with this literally and it didn’t last at all. Almost as soon as it made contact with my skin I got a nice whiff and it quickly disappeared. Le sigh. Darn it!
I really wanted to love this!
The good news is at the very least it is a body mist that smells like Soap & Glory which is better than nothing at all however a bit of a linger and a nice throw would have made it all the more better plus keeping to the original scent would have been nice too.
Ah well the Muse is ever, always a nit picker.
The Muse had to second guess the idea of shelling out $95 USD for a foundation powder when she seen the new La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation.
But now that I see how flawless my skin is looking I’m a believer.
Jump ahead for the review.
What it promises:
Lightweight coverage in a powder foundation that can go on sheer, medium, or heavy. Contains gemstones that capture light energy to create a translucent color palette, optically erasing imperfections to reveal a flawless completion. Ferment works to add visible clarity and brightness to skin, revealing a more luminous appearance.
What that means for you:
Simply put La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation works much like a transparent white powder to blur fine lines and minor imperfections to create flawless coverage.
I tested out a good size sample of the powder and I must say I am quite impressed. The powder isn’t quite like anything I’ve tried before. The formula is an interesting texture that’s cooling, light, and slightly creamy (I know a powder that’s creamy, sounds weird). I realize the idea of a creamy powder could be a contradiction but the powder does have a slightly strange formula that’s super smooth and blends beautifully, feeling much like a cream would. I was worried about trying it out on my dry skin but it leaves behind beautiful coverage no flakes, no settling on my face like a mask, simply gorgeous coverage. The powder also contains SPF 15 for extra coverage in the sun.
$95 may seem alot to shell out for one powder however the quality of the item more than makes up for the price. It’s ability to offer sheer to full coverage makes it a perfect foundation item for Summer when the idea of liquid foundation makes us cringe.

Simply put the powder is truly a luxurious item that manages to conceal and create the illusion of perfect skin. Who doesn’t want just that?
I know I’ll be indulging in the full size shortly.
What do you think?
Anyone try La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation?

A few people had asked for fashion and accessory posts and honestly it’s way outside my playing field but I thought I’d give it a shot. If you like it, shout it in the comment box and I’ll continue to bring you more posts like this one!
This particular post is about a discovery I recently found at Charlotte Russe for $6.99 USD!
Check it out after this jump!
I really love how inexpensive some of the accessories are at Charlotte Russe and I was particularly delighted to run across this gorgeous flower burst necklace! I normally head in for the shoes but I’ve been known to rummage around the chic accessories.
It’s one of those classic jewelry pieces that can be used dressed up or down. It comes on a long chain and the flower design is made from glass-like crystals. Quite pretty! You can snag it for $7 bucks at Charlotte Russe. Def recommend nabbing one, really a cool accessory in the Muse’s opinion!
What great discoveries have you dug up at Charlotte Russe?
Tell the Muse!
I admit I’m easy to amuse. Which is why when I tested out Foot Petals Sweaty Pedi Foot Fragrance I got a sincerely bad case of the giggles. What? I can’t help myself. The name alone makes me laugh myself silly. Sweaty pedi? Come on that’s kinda funny in a teenage boy fart joke kinda way isn’t it?
Told ya I was easily amused.
Jump for the review!
Even though the name is amusing the actual product works quite well. Foot Petals Sweaty Pedi Foot Spray has a little description on the bottle that says sexy-solutionz collection which again had me giggling. But I gotta say the scent is kinda sexy like. I know, I know foot spray that’s sexy…well it could happen. Anyone with a foot fetish should love this! The scent is kinda a soft vanilla scent although it does say it’s a sweet lavender and vanilla blend I get mostly a powdery sweet vanilla from it, quite pretty for my tired toes and feet!
Spray directly onto your feet to keep them fresh and smooth all Summer long as this absorbs perspiration and protects your skin against blisters, so if you’re sporting strappy sandals this Summer you can avoid those pesky blisters.
If you’re looking for a good way to keep your feet dry and cool this Summer do check out Foot Petals Sweaty Pedi Foot Fragrance (LOL sweaty pedi!).
