Back in the Summer you might remember me babbling in excitement when Lush introduced it’s Hair Gel line. This is a first for Lush as they normally lean towards other haircare items but never styling agents!
If you happen to be British or an Anglophile then you’ll be familiar with The King of Mods and Goth Juice.
The King of Mods
You might wonder who this King of Mods is. Well, it’s now a Hair Gel from Lush but it’s also a reference to the one and only Vince Noir aka Noel Fielding from The Mighty Boosh as for Goth Juice that’s a whole other story! Goth Juice, according to Vince, just happens to be the strongest hair spray known to man which is made out of the tears of Robert Smith (if you don’t know who Robert Smith is we can’t be friends anymore! Serious.). In this case Lush made Goth Juice a hair gel and not a hairspray.
So after that rather long story (You’re lucky it isn’t longer as I can discuss the Mighty Boosh all day long) I want to give the King of Mods and Goth Juice a big go ahead for purchase!
I wandered into Lush this weekend and I sniffed both King of Mods and Goth Juice and promptly fell in love. Sadly, I didn’t get a sec to snatch some up for my very self as I was in a bit of a rush and the Christmas crowd was vast and Herald Square Lush happens to be the size of a closet in an old Victorian house so put together a small store and a crowd and you have an unhappy Muse that’s clamoring to get out as quickly as possible!
But fear not I ordered both Goth Juice and the King of Mods from Lush UK last night and I’ll do a much better review upon using both but at the moment I can give you the low down on the scent!
I fear the name sold me on both as I’m a big Noel Fielding fan (and old enough to actually get the references in The Mighty Boosh) but upon actually getting a chance to sniff these I’m quite more in love than before!
King of Mods reminds me of Ocean Salt a bit. It’s a crisp, citrus scent with lime and grapefruit! It’s quite lovely and fresh smelling!
As for Goth Juice, yes the name was a big seller for me, but the entire idea of a herbal, earthy hair gel wasn’t too appealing but I’m happy to say that Goth Juice is a big YAY for me! It’s purple (Seriously! What color did you expect Robert Smith’s tears to be!??!) and smells alot like Jungle to me. If you use Jungle you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s a bit more earthy than Jungle but it’s a very nice herbal, earthy green scent that really is quite pleasing to the nose (I’m surprised I like it since I’m more of a fruity/sweet lover! It may just be the name that’s blinding me!).
Overall, both are really gorgeous and I’m eager to see how well they work!
King of Mods and Goth Juice are available for purchase from Lush for $15.95 and $14.95 and UK side for £6.95 per pot!
King of Mods, Goth Juice, The Mighty Boosh, Noel Fielding, and Robert Smith are all VERY Muse Approved (I just happened to pop in a Mighty Boosh DVD here at work as I typed this to get into the spirit of the post!)
Cyber Color is a Korean brand that’s pretty much available all over Asia such as Singapore, Japan, Etc…
It’s a pretty inexpensive brand of cosmetic and I have some of their shadows and can say they are pretty pigmented for the price!
Sasa just got in some of the new Holiday Collection Eyeshadows which are entitled Jewel Amour. I must say I am pretty tempted by these and they look yummie!
Cyber Color Jewel Amour Eyeshadows Available from Sasa.com
Some colors that are tempting me:
These are a whopping $11.30 which is quite expensive as they are about 75% cheaper if you purchase them in store but I have a funny feeling after the holidays they’ll be marked down! So as tempting as they are do wait on these if you’re wanting them as they’ll be on clearance sooner or later!
Although, the colors are making me want them right now rather badly!
Almost every year about 30% or more of my Holiday Shopping gets done at Amazon.com
I mean who doesn’t shop at Amazon right? They literally have everything and the kitchen sink!
The main reason I shop at Amazon is to earn back money! Who doesn’t love to shop PLUS earn back cash!
Here’s a list I’ve compiled of places to shop on Amazon that’ll earn you cash back!
From November 6, 2007 through December 18, 2007, every purchase of $50 or more of products offered by L’Occitane will earn you a gift certificate for $15 off a future Amazon.com purchase.
The Body Shop

Last year I earned back $180 which I used on Books, DVD’s, and a small Sephora order! I got the reward around the middle of February so it’s just in time for the Spring lines! I remember purchasing some of Smashbox’s Toki Doki collection with the certificiates!
The moral of the story is if you’re going to spend money why not get something back for it!
How chic (or greedy) would you be pulling this out of your bag for touch ups this holiday!
Retro Makeup case with the words “I only shop for me, myself, and I” printed on it!
The Muse doesn’t practice such a cruel art of gift giving but she does adore how cute this is (but I did order one for myself anyway and one for my sister’s stocking!).
