The Muse absolutely adores Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff Eaze and she welcomed it with open arms into the Lush haircare family however with it’s release the Muse had to bid farewell to her favorite hair treatment, The Strokes.
But it’s back!
Lush has introduced The Strokes back into the Retro Lush Catalog and the Muse is all about stocking up on a few and stashing them in her fridge! The Strokes tames my curls and adds tons of shine and body! It smells fresh and citrus like and leaves my hair scented as such for days and days and days after using!
To use The Strokes simply slap a heaping amount on dry hair and slip on a shower cap or wrap your head in a towel. The Muse normally runs a towel under extremely hot water, rings it out, and wraps around her with the treatment on. I leave it on for about an hour although they suggest 20 minutes or so. After the hour is up I rinse off and shampoo (no conditioner required) and I’m left with smooth, soft locks that remain as such for at least a month!
Best hair treatment evers!
The Muse adores The Strokes and is happy for it’s return! Remember kids Lush Hair Treatments only last 3-4 months so use them in that time or they’ll go bad!
There isn’t any doubt in the Muse’s mind that when beauty lovers ask to have an angel sent their way they are talking about Thierry Mugler Angel.
Exquisite comes to mind when discussing Thierry Mugler Angel Perfuming Body Cream. Dropping $80 USD on a body cream may seem obscene but the cream is so rich, so complex in scent, so moisturizing, and so gorgeous that the indulgence of $80 will seem like mere pennies.
The many notes and levels of Thierry Mugler Angel fragrance lends a certain complexity to the scent that’s near impossible to explain. The name “angel” can be misleading or at least it can for the Muse as she was expecting a much lighter fragrance but in fact the scent is quite deep, dark, and unique. Notes of Bargamot, Honey, Dewberry, Red Berries, Vanilla, Chocolate, Caramel, Hedione, Helional, and Patchouli cocktail together to create a exotic and sensual fragrance. I’m not a big fan of patchouli and it’s a very dominant note in the fragrance especially during dry down however the other notes in the blend create a unique layer that morphs the patchouli into something a bit more passionate and exotic.
Thierry Mugler Angel Perfuming Body Cream is the perfect companion for layering the scent onto skin after using the perfume. The moisturizer glides on and literally melts into the skin leaving behind a softer version of the fragrance. Although the cream is thick it remains silky and smooth while absorbing easily.
Of course the Muse is a sucker for beautiful packaging and she simply loves the stunning jar that the cream comes in. The moisturizer comes encased in a large, heavy glass jar decked out in silver and blue coloring with glitter in the base of the jar and a star motif surrounding the front. The packaging lends as much beauty as the fragrance does and is completely vanity worthy.
This is truly a luxurious product and well worth every penny! I’m looking forward to adding the fragrance to my collection soon. All in all a rather beautiful and exotic product.

The Muse likes to think it was kismet when she met up with Kitschmas.
MAC Pigment in Kitschmas is one of my first and favorite pigments! The Muse adores the soft lilac color and loves how it lends a certain frosty feel to her lids!
If you favor light shades of purple or just purple in general this is well worth picking up. The formula is one of the flakier pigments from MAC which in turn gives it a nice hint of shimmer. Use it by itself or pair it up with a darker purple for a gorgeous contrasting eye look!
I only got the chance to watch the first five minutes of Gossip Girl this week since the Muse has been very, very, very, alot busy but did you check out who’s starring as Chuck Bass’s uncle?
Well, hello gorgeous!
Muse, who is this love muffin you speak of?
Tis my future husband Desmond Harrington of course!
Desmond played Joey Quinn in this season of Dexter and did a brilliant job of it might I add. Now the Muse normally doesn’t fall for manly men such as Desmond but she must say that his accent sends shivers down her little spine. Desmond was born in Georgia but grew up in the Bronx and that boy has the accent to prove it. Loves it! I don’t think I’ve seen him in a role where he’s fully dropped his accent so it’s always rather fetching to watch him work. Growing up in New York I have a deal for the accents around these parts…hells you should hear my friend Marc his accent is harder and rougher than Desmond’s!
And hello now he’s playing Chuck’s uncle on Gossip Girl? The Muse is totally thrilled. Holy Hotness Batman! I sure hope that they keep him on Dexter next season as well because although he wasn’t cast in the most brilliant light the Muse just enjoys the extra eye candy on the show! Yums! I think they’ll set him up with Lily on Gossip Girl but from what I have seen…was he flirting with Blair in that first scene? This could get dangerous!
Desmond is Muse Approved by all means possible teehee!
I seen these last year during the Semi Annual sale and skipped them and now again I’m presented with them and I can’t help but feel that old special lemming come on for these. I’m so intrigued to try them out. Knocked down from the original price tag of $25 USD and now priced at $11.99 USD I probably can afford one or two to try out right?
I think mainly, as unconventional as it is, the packaging appeals to me in a big way. Isn’t it really pretty? But on a sad note I worry it’ll be really difficult to get the product out plus the general mess of it which is why I’m glad I can steal it at this price because hey if I hate it at least I didn’t dish nearly $30 bucks on it!
