demeter

Exclusive to YesStyle.com these cute coffrets contain one quirky fragrance and a lotion for $58 USD. Bit on the pricey side if you ask me but the cute factor sure does appeal!

Whether you’re a drama queen, a trouble maker, think boys are smelly, or think that the world revolves around you, there’s a Demeter scent just waiting for you!

Boys Are Smelly? We all knew that! The smell of well worn leather seems to be the order of business in regards to how smelly boys are! And the Muse always thought it was sweat and testosterone, goes to show you what she knows!

Demeter+1

The Muse likes to think the world revolves around her and just think she can have her own fragrance that’s all about her! Warm Caramel and Vanilla are what it’s all about!
Demeter+2

Are you a drama queen? Don’t answer that. You’ll probably deny it anyway! The Nile isn’t just a river in Egypt…it’s also a fragrance entitled Drama Queen which smells of champagne and black pansies…who knew drama smelled like that?

Demeter+3

Bet you’d admit to being a Trouble Maker faster than you would a Drama Queen! Trouble Makers smell like the things that our mama’s warned us about like cannabis, whiskey, and tobacco! Being bad never felt smelled…..so good?

Demeter+5

Chicks Rule! We knew that. They rule with sugar, orange, lemon, and all good things nice!

Demeter+4

Indulge your personality with Demeter’s David and Goliath Collection @ YesStyle

Bobbi Brights Collection: Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color Retro Pink and Rose Brown Review, Swatches, Photos, and FOTD

As part of the Bobbi Brown Brights Collection, several new shades of Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color were released. I’ve reviewed Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color briefly in my Bobbi Brown Shimmering Nudes Collection post but I thought they did deserve a revisit and an article of their own considering what a lovely formula and product they are.

Bobbi+Brown+Creamy+Lip+Color1

Four new shades of Creamy Lip Color were introduced with the Bobbi Brights Collection, two of which are making a spotlight appearance here on Musings for my review. Today I’ll be discussing, reviewing, and showing you the shades Retro Pink and Rose Brown.

Skip ahead to hear what I think about these lippies!

I’m a big fan of emollient lip products! Shiny, glossy, moisturizing, I’m all over that. Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color brings all those great qualities to the table with a rich pigmented base that’s sure to please makeup lovers far and wide.

The formula of the lip colors is a nice glossy, moisturizing lip treatment. It’s a cross between a lipstick, a gloss, and a lip balm, all rolled into one product. Who doesn’t love all those qualities cocktailed together? I know I do. The product glides onto the lips beautifully leaving behind pigmented, glossy color. I’m a particularly fond fan of applying a dab or two of lipstain on my lips and following up with a few strokes of the creamy lip color for a lovely pout!

I have two of the four new shades released which are Retro Pink (a bubblegum pink) and Rose Brown (a muted brown with a hint of brown).

Bobbi+Brown+Creamy+Lip+Color7

Rose Brown makes me think of my friend Iris as I know she’d completely love this shade because it would remind her of one of her favorite lipstick shades from Esprique Precious, BR300….actually on me, as you’ll see below, the color came out as a coral because I paired it up with a touch of an orange lipstain under it prior to use. The effect of the stain and the lip color on top is interesting to say the least.

Retro Pink is a great Spring shade considering how light and fun it is. If you enjoy Bubble Gum pink shades this will surely please.

There aren’t a good deal of creamy lip colors on the market like this at the moment. I try ALOT of different brands as you know and I really never ran across a product like this outside of the Asian market. I enjoy how lightweight it is and absolutely love that it still remains a good deal pigmented even though the formula would seem sheer when applying. Color is buildable and lips are left feeling glossy, shiny, and lovely.

What’s not to love?

Who would love this?

  • Anyone who likes a lightweight lip color with plenty of pigmentation and a super gloss finish!
  • Those who aren’t too big a fan heavier lipsticks but still desire a bite of color on their lips!
  • Anyone who enjoys a glossy, moisturizing lip treatment.

These are really fab in the Muse’s opinion and a tried and true favorite. I look forward to new color releases and I’ll continue buying since the formula is outstanding.

All in all Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color are Muse Approved for purchase. The Muse thinks they should be on your beauty radar! Loves it!

Product Musings: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Mildew

Mildew…hmm sounds unappealing but eyeshadow in Mildew…likey!

Urban+Decay+Eyeshadow+in+Mildew4

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Mildew is an army green shadow, and like all green shadows, lends a certain mystery to the Muse’s eyes. It seems that dark brown eyes and green eye shadow are a marriage most divine!

Mildew is pretty fantastic considering it doesn’t have the heavy duty shimmer overload many Urban Decay shadows have. Hey, the Muse is all about tons of glitter but sometimes it’s difficult to clean up! Mildew is deeply pigmented, silky smooth, blends like a dream, and doesn’t contain any glitter, always a plus for the glitter haters of the world!

Pair it up with a lighter shade of green for a contrasting, popping eye look or use it on it’s own with a bit of black liner on your bottom and lower lash line for a mysterious, alluring look!

However, you use it you’ll be happy you hauled it as it’s truly a great shade!

Do you have Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Mildew in your stash?

Love it?

What are some of your absolutely favorite Urban Decay Shadow shades?

Musings of the Day: Spring Release Info

musings

I think a majority of the major cosmetic brands on the market have released info on their Spring Collections. Hells, most of them are selling it online and at counters for weeks now.

But which brands haven’t you heard from and are eager to hear from about their Spring Collections?

Join me to Muse about what collections you’re excited to hear about!

This was a no brainer for me. I’ve explored pretty much all the Spring Collections so far aside from the Japanese brands that haven’t released quite yet. However, one brand has not uttered a peep about anything Spring-like as of yet.

Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals.

I do look forward to seeing what Bare Escentuals has in store for us. I’m a constant ranter about their kits but I’m also a fond lover and fan and always look forward to what they are up to next! Aside from a few Buxom Lip kits I haven’t seen anything new pop up yet and I’m quite excited to see what they put on the table if anything.

How about you? What brand have you been patiently waiting on to release their Spring Collection?

Tell the Muse!
