Bath and Body Works Summer Collection 2008: C.O. Bigelow Body Washes

Bath and Body Works is slowly updating it’s website with the new Summer Collections for 2008! One item I ran across while breezing around the site are the new C.O. Bigelow Body Washes!

Tis a mint infused fruity body wash that promises to invigorate you in the shower and wake you up! I’m just thrilled to hear they are infused with mint! How yummie is that?

Raspberry Mint, Lime Mint, Lemon Mint, and Orange Mint are available now from Bath and Body Works for $12 USD each!

Expect a review soon as I’m very tempted by these!

Want ‘em?

NARS Orgasm Lipgloss and Nail Polish Set Review

If you have $30 I can show you the perfect way to spend it!

Behold:

Meet the best duo I’ve seen around since Batman and Robin (that’s saying alot considering these guys wore tights and fought off crazy criminals! Hey, I’m just saying it has to be hard work wearing tights and saving the world!).

NARS has decided to pair up it’s popular Orgasm Lipgloss with a brand new nail polish in Orgasm! My life is almost complete now….I’m just waiting patiently for the NARS Eyeshadow in Orgasm and I should be good to go!

Picture+239

In all seriousness NARS Orgasm Blush is probably one of my most favorite colors around. It’s peachy, it’s pink, it has a tiny bit of shimmer that reflects so beautifully off my cheeks…in other words, it’s perfect.

NARS Lipgloss in Orgasm is equally perfect and now….nail polish too! Oh my!

I’m super excited about this kit. What’s not to love? The color is pure perfection, the price is awesome, and I get not only hot nails from it but hot lips! Yes, indeed, the Muse is liking it alot.

I’m not very good at taking care of my nails sadly but I’m definately going to be sporting NARS Orgasm Nail Polish all Summer long! I’ve truly fell deeply in love with this and I say you needs it now so hurry to Sephora and purchase it for your very own!

Sometimes brands create items and work the angle so many times it’s enough to make a person yawn or scream (depending on your personality) but in the case of Orgasm I don’t think they can extend the line any further without making me roll around on the floor in excitement! Who doesn’t love the awesome line of blushes that NARS has available, hell I have practically all of ‘em! Extending the line to include matching glosses and nail varnishes is an absolutely brilliant idea to me and I seriously can’t grow tire of the beautiful peachy pink concoction that is Orgasm. They definately picked the perfect combo for this kit!

So….

If you have $30 bucks to spare, I highly recommend heading to your nearest Sephora and grabbing yourself this little kit! You won’t be sorry!

Here’s a little Face of the Day for you but please be gentle as I am foundation-less! I only used NARS Blush in Orgasm and NARS Lipgloss in Orgasm for the FOTD and I’m otherwise cosmetic free. I’m having a bad skin day too so give a girl a break icon wink

Picture+324

Sephora hasn’t yet updated it’s site but the new catalog is making it’s way into your mailbox shortly (or it may already be there! Go check!).

I love the Calender Girl theme! Very cute! The catalog opens as a calender would and contains some very interesting bits and pieces of cosmetic yum! I haven’t been this excited about a Sephora catalog in a very long time but props for such an interesting theme this year! Bravo!

Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Bronze Collection $35 USD
P213718 hero

Sephora Summer Safari Palette in Zebra $26 USD

Even though the catalog didn’t contain a ton of cosmetic lemmings I still happily flipped through the pages in excitement as it was so very well done!

NARS Round Up Review: Abyssinia and More!

I got my hands on NARS Eyeshadow in Abyssinia finally. This color was released with the Spring Collection and I’ve been meaning to purchase it for ages. It’s not as bright and loud as my normal colors go but I adore it. I also got a few other NARS goodies that I’ll be discussing later on in this post!

Abyssinia is a very delicate pearl color which gives a faint creamy look to your eye. Using such a light color on your eye area will brighten it up and make you appear more awake! I love the simplicity of this color because it allows me to take advantage of using heavier liners on my eye. I normally avoid lining my eyes when I’m using brighter, bolder shades as I think it’s a bit too much but when I’m using a lighter color I love going to town with my liner and making it pop! Such is the case with NARS Eyeshadow in Abyssinia! It’s a beautifully, refreshing color for using as an all over color wash, a high brown highlighter, or as a prep for a bolder shade! Yesterday morning I used Abyssinia with MAC Dual Eye Pencil in Nighthawk and Front Row and the look came out rather awesome. I was able to take full advantage of darking my eyes up with MAC’s pencil while keeping my eyeshadow simple and natural! I was trying to recreate the look of NARS Spring and Summer Collection with my bold lips and natural eyes!

Here’s what I came up with:

Picture%2B317 400x300

Face
Aromaleigh Rocks! Mineral Blush Powder in FemmeFatale

Eyes
NARS Eyeshadow in Abyssinia
MAC Dual End Pencil in Nighthawk and Front Row
Majorca Majolica Mascara

Lips
Cynthia Rowley for Avon Lipstick in Plum Orchid
Cynthia Rowley for Avon Lipgloss in Plum Orchid

Since I’m discussing NARS might I mention the dual ended Lipgloss/Lipstain Duos! I’m feeling neutrals lately and NARS Dual End Lipgloss/Lipstain Duo in Stolen Kisses/Pamp is the perfect nude neutral combo! Pampa is a beautiful chocolate with touches of gold and Stolen Kisses is a Dusky Rose that compliments Pampa beautifully! I always stain my lips prior to applying gloss so this little guy is a god sent for me! The idea of having my stain and gloss in one easy tube is simplicity at it’s best! The stain is beautifully pigmented and the gloss is wonderfully emollient without being sticky or tacky! The shades go wonderfully together! Each Duo is $28 USD and available for purchase at NARS or Sephora.

Last on my list is the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Since falling in love with Bobbi Brown’s lip crayons I really adore the idea of a lip pencil that you can use for not only lining but filling! NARS version of the lip pencil is a moisturizing, pigmented pencil of color that’s simple to use and great to have around for on the go touch ups! The color I got was Belle de Jour which is a sheer beige! Toting around a small pencil that works like a lipstick makes my life simple plus the color selection is awesome!
