Philosophy Green Apple 3 in 1 Shower Gel Review

Mmmmm look what I found hanging out at my local Nordies:

Picture+171

I had blogged about Philosophy Green Apple 3 in 1 Shower Gel a few weeks ago but I hadn’t been around Nordstrom for a while to get my hands on it. Last night I hopped into Nordies to have a look at MAC Colour Forms and the bright, neon color of Green Apple lured me to the display.

I didn’t order this online because I was a bit worried I’d be disappointed. Philosophy makes great shower gels but sometimes they are lacking and scents are really hit and miss! However, we have a total winner with the new Green Apple scent!

The Muse loves it! I used it this morning and I can’t rave enough about the delicious smell. It’s very true to it’s name and smells like a crunchy green apple but the best part of all is the cocktail of sweet versus sour. It smells like a sour apple jolly rancher candy! Mmmmm! It has that sweet scent with a nice sour edge and kick. They captured the essence of a sour candy beautifully!

I have to say I have had my share of disappointments with Philosophy Shower Gels and I am slightly choosy when I purchase a new one. But they really did an outstanding job with this one. I felt like the scent was more pronounced and stronger in comparison to older releases. I also noticed that it seemed to sud up more and offered tons and tons of luxurious foam!

If you like sweet scents with a bit of a kick this one is for you!

The Muse gives it a big Muse Approval for purchase!

Gosh Cosmetics Fall Collection 2008: Spellbound

Spellboundad

Gosh Cosmetics has been on my hit list for a while. I read about it everywhere and I’ve seen some raving reviews. It’s a Denmark brand that recently hit our shores and is available for purchase online.
Gosh Cosmetics has tempted me for so long and I think I’m going to finally indulge in a few purchases to see if it lives up to all the hype I hear. The Fall Collection looks stunning in particular the eyeshadow trios!

See of yourself if you don’t believe me:

That cranberry pink trio shall be mine! Hmmmm…expect a review soon! The collection consists of four new Effects colors (these are loose shimmering pigments), four new shades of eyeshadow trios, two new colors of shimmering of the eyeshadow stick, and three new shades of eye liner.

Sephora The Lash Stash

How awesome is this?

sephora+the+lash+stash

This kit contains an array of various mascaras so you can test them out prior to committing to a full size. $28 USD nabs you seven designer brand mascaras!

I think this is simply awesome. I hate purchasing mascara and later finding out it’s rubbish this allows you to try it out prior to buying the full size to see if it’s really something worth purchasing! So cool!

It works out to about $4 USD per a sample size of each mascara and that’s not really alot since you’ll probably get more than a months use out of each sample. Plus they are the perfect size for travel!

The kit includes all of the following:
Benefit BADgal
Blinc Kiss Me Mascara
Lorac Publicity Stunt Lashes
Smashbox Bionic Mascara
Stila Multi-Effect Mascara
Sephora Brand Lash Plumper
Too Faced Lash Injection

Even though I normally wear Japanese brand mascara only I think the kit is a genius idea!

Props to Sephora for this one!

Pop Beauty Lip Lust Review

Have you ever successfully completed a tube of lipstick? Am I the only one in the world that has the hardest time in the world using one up?

If you have this problem too you might be interested in trying out Pop Beauty’s new Lip Lust Lipstick! These tiny tubes house a hydrating, moisturizing lipstick that’s sheer and natural with a beautiful glossy finish.

Pop+Lip+Lust+Lipstick+Dew+Toffee+45

Pop+Lip+Lust+Lipstick+Dew+Toffee+2

I tested out Dewy Toffee which is a nude peach. The color gave me a beautiful, natural look that went beautifully with my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Shimpange. I’m particularly smitten with the glossy finish on these and I love how they simply glide onto my lips not to mention give my lips much needed moisture on hot days.

The packaging is simply sweet! Since this isn’t a full size lipstick you can easily slip it into your makeup bag for touch ups without taking a ton of room. The size makes it equally charming for the simple fact you can actually get through the entire tube where as with full size lipsticks I’m normally ditching them because I can’t get through them within a year or two and by that time they are long since old, dry, gross, and germ ridden! If you’re familiar with Lavshuca’s Jewel Lips Mini the Pout Beauty Lip Lust is comparable in size to this.

All in all it’s a rather great Summer lip stick as it offers a beautiful glossy finish plus plenty of moisturizing benefits to keep your lips shiny and hydrated in the hot sun!

The Muse digs it!

Check it out at Sephora!

Tried it?

Can you get through an entire tube of lipstick?

Love Pout?

Visee Fall Collection 2008: Glamorous Hunter

visee

Our friend Kodi Kumi is back in full swing advertising Visee’s Fall Collection. After a rough patch of publicity it’s nice to see her back in the promo for Fall!

A few items are being released with Visee’s Fall Collection but of course the item that really jumps up at me is the new Glam Hunt Eye Palettes. Visee makes a great eye palette as you may have guessed from my previous raves. These are a revamp from the last few releases and the colors are very suitable for the cooler weather that will be upon is soon!

The palettes come in five styles and include five shades of shadow plus a brush for application. I see at least three color combos I want but I may just indulge in all five.

Each palette is 1890 yen but it’ll probably be a bit cheaper due to various drugstore discounts in Japan.

Expect a review on these shortly!
