Product Musings: Bare Escentuals Blush in Fruit Cocktail


I’ve Mused Bare Escentuals Glimmers and Eyeshadows but I never discussed Bare Escentuals Blushes. Secondary, on my list of favs from Bare Escentuals line would have to be their blushes.


Bare Escentuals has some great hidden gems in their blush collection that many people probably never took note of, one such shade would be Fruit Cocktail.

Doesn’t the name just make you happy?


The shade is a popping pink that kinda reminds me of fruit cocktail. Every eat fruit cocktail in the can? All that fruit and if you’re lucky a single cherry or two….I used to love the cherry when I was little, it was the highlight of the fruit cocktail! This blush reminds me of those days.





The color could be a bit loud for some but for my cheeks it’s very flattering. It has that just pinched look that I favor in my blushes and if I’m feeling frisky I can even use it as an all over color wash on my eyes!

Bare Escentuals Blush in Fruit Cocktail is one to watch, the Muse loves it!

Tried it?

Love it?

What are your fav shades of BE blush?

Tell the Muse!

Lollia Guest Haus Collection: Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo and Lollia Bee Balm Conditioner Review

Last week I featured a friendly, feminine beauty budget find from Lollia to moisturize your skin! This week I’ll feature a sweet little duo to cleanse hair and condition your hair that’s sure to please you packaging wise, cute wise, and price wise!



Lollia holds my heart when it comes to ultra cute, girlishly chic bits and bobs for body and hair care. Today I thought I’d bring you a review of Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo and Lollia Bee Balm Conditioner in the scent Mint Julep.




These sweet petite treats are available from Lollia for $8 USD each and come housed in small little toothpaste style tubes that are practical yet have that hint of designer charm for displaying in your wash room or on top of your vanity.

Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo is formulated with purifying clover blossom to protect tresses while wheat proteins build strength. This shampoo is light enough for daily use on all hair types without weighting it down! It’s lightly perfumed with Mint Julep which feels cooling and soothing on the scalp and scents your hair with a delicious blend of vanilla bean, shredded coconut, star anise, and crushed mint.





Lollia Clover Blossom Conditioner adds shine and flirt to hair. Keep hair calm and moisturized with milk and wheat and the cool scent of Mint Julep!






Both the shampoo and conditioner are very light formula so if your hair is color treated, dry, oily, or silicon free, like my own, you’ll be able to safely use this without weighting hair down or stripping color.

The scent is delicious and it lingers quite nicely in your hair so you’ll be smelling minty fresh all day long. Mint for your hair possibly sounds weird but the other notes of vanilla and coconut morph the mint into a gorgeous blend that’s sure to please.

Since these cute little treats are such a budget friendly price they are perfect for gift giving, stashing in your guest room, or most important, traveling with!

You can snag Lollia Shampoo and Conditioner by visiting www.lollialife.com

Lollia goodies are Muse Approved for purchase!

Stash Spotlight: Morgen Schick Lip Shines


For today’s Stash Spotlight I thought I’d give you a peep at my stash of Morgen Schick Lip Shines!


Some of you may be privy to Morgen Schick’s cosmetic line and some of you may be scratching your head saying “who?” Morgen Schick does a line of cosmetics that premiered on HSN some years ago and she also has her own website where she sells the line. She really has some incredible cosmetics and I happen to be a huge fan, particularly, of her base makeup line, tis HG material for this Muse.

I’m also a huge fan of the Morgen Schick Lip Shines. Don’t ask me why as they really aren’t the best lipgloss around but I’m terribly addicted to the tasty mint flavor, the ridiculous amount of color variety, and the great long wear of the product. They aren’t richly pigmented but they do leave a nice hint of color on lips with a slightly shimmery finish that’s really quite nice. I’ve collected quite a few year since Morgen had sets of five available that would ship ever season or so…of course I was on that auto ship option!

Since than I’ve collected various ones from Evil-bay, or swapping, and purchasing on HSN. I highly suggest seeking at least one shade out for yourself as they are an interesting gloss to try!

Loves ‘em!

Without further babbling from me a few pics of my stash are below!

Benefit Smokin’ Eyes Palette


Oh hello pretty Benefit palette I knew nothing about!

Check it!

Brand new the Benefit Smokin’ Eyes Palette! Hi there.

Just noticed this little guy parading around on the Benefit site and now I feel a lemming coming on. I’m smoky eye disabled so this should be just the treat for me as I always screw up a perfect nice smoky eye with loads and loads…oh and loads of shimmer so I really could use a kit giving me the how to and low down on the perfect smoky eye! Kinda looks like the Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette but without alot of the fanfare!


This actually covers not only a smoky eye but also brows as well so you’re getting an all-in-one kit for lids and brows. Cool beans! The kit includes three shadows, a black eyeliner pencil, a brightener, 2 blushes, mini tweezers, and a complete lesson book for idiots like me who have a hard time getting that perfect smoked out eye look.

The question is, to order or not to order….hmmmm! Benefit still has 20% Off of an order of $50 USD or more so I should probably grab this and some Benefit Lemon Aid….whatta ya think?

I’ll probably cave sooner rather than later.
