Vera Wang Look Eau de Parfum Review

In 1989 Roxette had the Look:

Or at least the juvenile Muse thought so! The floor is now open to slander Roxette’s bad hair…I’ll turn away while you do so….

Done?

Ok!

In 2008 Verg Wang Look has “the Look”, minus the bad hair of course! Vera Wang Look is a new Eau de Parfum that represents the style and passion that Vera Wang’s new Fall/Winter Fashion Line introduces for 2008-2009.

Vera Wang Look is dominantly a soft floral with notes of lily, freesia, and jasmine but other notes such as sweet vanilla, musk, and deliches apple create a sparkling soft fragrance that manages to have a sophisticated yet fun edge. I got a rather clean, crisp citrus like scent from Vera Wang Look. If you enjoy soft florals, brisk, clean blends this would be something you’d love. Vera Wang Look is ideally perfect for a day time fragrance in the Muse’s opinion. Look extends it’s clean, sparkling look to it’s packaging as the scent is held in a simple, clear prism bottle.

Taking into consideration that Vera Wang Look is an Eau de Parfum you’ll have a good long wear time on this. I used about three squirts and it extended from around 6 in the morning all the way into the evening around 7 when it started to wear down slightly but still held a rather nice touch of scent.

All in all Vera Wang Look is something worth checking out for yourself! The collection consists of the main fragrance plus additional items to layer with such as a sheer body lotion, body cream and more!

Vera Wang Look is currently available at Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdale’s, and other select department stores. Do stop in and have a sniff for yourself the Muse thinks you’ll love it!

Tried it yet?

Tricia Sawyer Clearly Pretty Lipgloss Review

Check it. I was just telling you how much I love lip stains with my Missha Tinted Lip Marker Review right?

So let me introduce you to another fine lip stain…might as well do two stains in one day! What the heck I feel like living dangerously today!

Tricia Sawyer Clearly Pretty Lipgloss has my heart at the moment as far as lip stains go! Loves it!

What is it? It’s a body heat-activated lip gloss that turns the perfect, customized shade of pink! Basically it enhances your own natural lip color flushing lips to a really intense pink that’s quite beautiful! I tried it and my sister tried it and we both got different results. Mine turned a rather dramatic fuchsia pink that I was absolutely loving and my sister it turned a rather dark red that was quite charming! I wouldn’t mind either shade in all honesty as they both were rocking as far as I’m concerned!

I’d call this a liquid stain considering that the formula isn’t quite intensely glossy. You can use a bit more gloss on top after application to get a fuller lip look. The formula does get super props for creating a rather sizzling shade of pink on my lips! It goes on clear but takes a mere second to turn into a brighter shade of pink or in my sister’s case red!

I thought it was rather interesting that it turned a delicate pink on my arm but on my lips it was a louder shade of pink! I guess the body temperature of my arm was a bit cooler than that of my lips.

If you adore the look of just kissed or just bitten lips you should try out Tricia Sawyer Clearly Pretty Lip Gloss! Good stuff! The Muse likey this one…alot!

Missha Tinted Lip Marker Review

A few years ago Bourjois Paris introduced Bons baisers de Paris (Kisses from Paris) which the Muse absolutely fell in love with. These cute little pens that looked like a marker were actually a stain that gave a blush of color to lips! I’ve used many lip and cheek stains in my time but none were every compared to these! The color was soft and not overpowering, they didn’t dry my lips out, the application was simple, and the packaging was ideal! Sadly, somewhere along the line Bourjois Paris diced Bons baisers de Paris from it’s line up and the Muse has never seen them again!

T’was a sad day indeed!

Until now.

I recently came across a similiar style of pen from a Korean brand entitled Missha. The Missha Tinted Lip Marker is pretty much a perfect duplicate of the Bourjois Paris version so the Muse of course needed to try them for herself! Turns out these little markers perform the same functions as the Bourjois Paris and are a perfect dupe plus accessible in the Missha main catalog! Joy! Bless be! The Muse’s excitement can be heard far and wide.

I recently asked a friend to pick me up the two available colors and I was so excited to finally get them I nearly cried…just nearly…

The only thing I could possibly rant about would be the lack of colors. Sadly the color selection is narrowed down to two shades where as the Bourjois Paris version had a total of four shades but aside from that they function pretty much the exact same way!

The colors available are a red pink and a pale pink which match perfectly with my lip shade. They don’t overpower my lips are making them look abnormal. The color is a simple, natural stain that adds a bit of pop to my normal, natural lip shade. I simply smooth onto my lips with the felt tip and I’m left with a beautiful flush of color. They don’t dry my lips out and they color literally lasts for hours at a time! With a bit of gloss I have a very natural looking lip that’s flattering and pretty!

I know of quite a few brands who have done a similar style stain such as mark, Pixie, Sephora, even Urban Decay and believe you me I’ve tried them all but none have successfully created such a great product as Missha and Bourjois Paris has! The lightness of the stain creates such a natural flush that’s not quite been duplicated by these other brands!

I paid retail for these so they cost around $8 USD or so but I have seen them on E-bay for about $12 USD or so and truly they are well worth it!

The Muse loves ‘em and approves ‘em for purchase! Try looking on E-bay or ask a mate in Korea to nab you some! Well worth your cash!

Muse Approved for purchase all the way!
