As part of it’s Summer 2009 Collection Too Faced introduced three new stand alone blushes entitled Pinch My Petals Blush.

I love that Too Faced has extended their rather cute, retro glam girl packaging to their single product cosmetics. They normally reserve this style packaging for their popular Quickie Palettes so I’m quite delighted that they created three single blushes in this design. I’m actually hopeful that this could set the wheels in motion for them to extend themselves further on such packaging. Each blush features a different pin up girl, too cute! These are a flip style durable cardboard compact with mirror. Too Faced Pinch My Petals Blush ($19.50 USD) is available in three shades so far which are Pinch My Petals (sheer pink), Mocha Mi Amore (muddy brown), and Papa Don’t Peach (peach/coral).
If I’m honest I really didn’t like Mocha Mi Amore or Pinch My Petals. Mocha Mi Amore was terribly dark on me and quite muddy, not a flattering shade at all. And Pinch My Petals was too sheer to really enjoy and a tad on the chalky side as well. The real star of the collection is Papa Don’t Peach which could pass for a subdued Orgasm-like shade. The pigmentation was lacking a tad bit on both Mocha Mi Amore and Pinch My Petals plus the matte finishes just weren’t working in the least for this Muse however Papa Don’t Peach definitely had a nice slightly shimmery finish with plenty of pigmentation, quite a lovely Summer shade.
Overall, I love the packaging, liking the price (not too bad a deal at $19.50) but was a tad disappointed only one of the three shades worked for me. As I mentioned I look forward Too Faced possibly introducing other items with this style packaging, that much is a big win for me.
Tell the Muse!
Oh hello there inexpensive way to get clean, smell pretty, and moisturize my body too!
If you’re looking for the big three’s in a body wash check out Dove Go Fresh Body Wash and Dove Go Fresh Soap. The big three you say Muse? What’s that? Well you want something that multitasks right? Something to wash your skin with quickly in the AM plus something that smells pretty and makes YOU smell pretty, and finally something that isn’t tough on your skin and offers a nice moisturizing finish.
Dove Go Fresh Burst Body Wash in Nectarine and White Ginger is the perfect beauty budget shower wash option. This sweet, tart citrus smelling shower gel has a nice foaming lather that moisturizes skin and leaves you smelling lovely. The formula is a gel wash which makes the Muse sing in the shower. The Dove Go Fresh Burst Soap is just as a nice and perfect for layering up with the wash, get yourself doubly clean!
Btw did you hear about the Gossip Girl: Real NYC Stories Revealed that’s sponsored by Dove Go Fresh? I heart Gossip so damn much. I haven’t watched yet but Gossip Girl star Jessica Szhor (Vanessa) is promoting the new program to celebrate the launch of Dove Go Fresh Burst Body Wash.
The video series gives Gossip Girl fans a glimpse into the real lives of four young women who live in the same Manhattan hotbed as the Gossip Girl characters. Basically it’s the story about their life, career, love interests, family, and friends. Sounds like MTV Real World starring Manhattan’s elite. I can barely tolerate B and S sometimes imagine having to watch real life socialites in their everyday lives? I’m unsure if I’m excited or scared! Count me curious though! I’ll give my thoughts after I viewed the videos! Anyone watch ‘em yet? Tell me the deets!

You can Dove Go Fresh Burst Body Wash and Dove Go Fresh Burst Soap at your local drugstore.
The Sephora Catalog Summer 2009 should be wingin’ it’s way to your mail box soon, if it hasn’t already. It’s considerably smaller than years past but quite nice none the less.
I’m not particularly excited about the items in the catalog but I do so admit I’m thrilled with the theme which is entitled Fantasea. I’m partial to mermaids and the mysteries the ocean holds so this is right up my alley. With plenty of aquatic eye looks and really great model images I was simply enthralled with the catalog although as I mentioned there was nothing makeup wise that caught my attention in a major way.
Without further babble from me check out some of the pictures I snapped of the catalog!
Well done Sephora, the Muse loves it! With the economy slowly, very slowly on the up rise Sephora managed to create quite a nice little catalog for Summer ’09. I do so look forward to seeing the updates on the website soonish plus any videos or tutorials they might be generous enough to share with us, as the Muse always wanted to be a mermaid when she grew up!
What do you think?
Tell the Muse!
The Muse is blessed with so many incredible friends in her life but she does so wish she had more that were into makeup that way she could debate MAC Makeup Remover Wipes.
The Muse freaking loves the topic of these wipes. She adores people that go on and on about how wonderful they are, mind you the Muse thinks they are pretty special too but….
It irritates the holy hell out of me that people say these bloody things take it ALL off. But…but…but how? I love them with a passion. They don’t dry my skin out, smell amazing, make my skin feel moisturized, and remove my makeup….
They do a crap job on waterproof mascara. So technically speaking they do not get it all off yet many a fan will insist they remove EVERYTHING.
Why jebus why!
I’ve honestly never had any success getting off waterproof mascara with these. I even seen one very popular youTuber say they took of MAC Liquidlast….she must be using a different wipe than I am or she’s on crack…no freaking way are these doing that unless I scrub my eye with it like it’s a brillo pad.
That’s my two dollar rant of the day.
Love ‘em, just wish they’d do a better job with waterproof mascara and wish everyone who says they take off everything wouldn’t say that.
But you can say whatever you like in my comment box.
What do you think of these wipes?
It’s ok the Muse will still love you long time if you say they take off waterproof mascara…although it might be a tiny bit harder to do so after you admit that but love you she will.
An unusual mix of gold, bronze, and smoky black and gray make up Gosh Cosmetics Golden Glamour Summer Collection.
The Muse can get on board with gold but she’s not sure she’s convinced on black?
Gosh Cosmetics paired up two rather gorgeous trios for it’s Summer staple look one of which is a stunning golden, bronze affair where as the other is a black and gray trio for a smoky eye look.
The idea of wearing a smoky eye out in the Summer does puzzle a Muse but hey whatever floats your boat. The collection also includes a brand new Giant Sun Powder meant for all over application to get a kiss of the Summer’s glow!
The collection isn’t terribly big and most of it is made up of items already found within the catalog but none the less I’m liking the promo image at the very least.
Do share what you think!
