Summer Fragrance: Thymes Red Cherie Cologne Spray Review

I’ve been wanting to try out Thymes Red Cherie Cologne for a while now! I saw so many reviews about it that my head was swimming with visions of how awesome it would be!

Picture+342

I finally got a chance to test drive Thymes Red Cherie for myself and I’m here to say that I am disappointed but I am also pretty excited.

I believe there might be a contradiction in there somewhere!

When I first heard the description of this I nearly fell over! Pomegranate, red cherries, passion flower…OH WOW! I really needed to smell like red cherries you see! I was thinking how fruity and gorgeous this would be! Turns out that I was quickly disappointed upon first sniff! Sadly it’s not as fruity as I had hoped!

However, the good news is I’ve fell in love with it as it’s such a playful scent that morphs as my body chemistry goes up and down!

When I first spray this on I get a floral almost sweet scent of the jasmine and passion flower. This lasts throughout the day but as my body temperature rises the floral turns this into a sweeter blend and it begins to sparkle and become effervescent! Almost lemony if that makes sense!

It’s a very happy, playful blend that’s sure to please anyone who likes fun fragrances! It may turn you off that it’s a Cologne Spray considering most woman have a problem with Cologne Spray not lasting long but the good news it’s very long wearing and lingers beautifully for me and it’s constantly changes and begins to smell differently as the day goes on!

If you’re looking for a unique, light scent for the Summer this is definately something you should consider purchasing!

Visit the Thymes Website for more great goodies! They have quite an amazing selection of unique scents and products for those of you who are as addicted to Bath and Body goodies as the Muse is!

Vincent Longo Summer Collection 2008: Beautiful Dreamer

vincentlongo

Shimmer, Glimmer, and Shine your way through Summer with Vincent Longo’s newest collection entitled Beautiful Dreamer!

It looks very promising! Since my addiction to cream eyeshadows has escalated recently I’m jumping around in excitement at the prospect of the eyeshadows being released with the Vincent Longo Summer Collection!

vincentlonjg

I heart Vincent Longo Eyeshadows in a major way so I’m all over these new liquid eyeshadows! Sadly, the color selection is pretty small with only four colors but I have hopes if they sell well maybe they’ll extend the color line up! These promise shimmer and if the promo image is anything to go by I’d say they look superb! They don’t come cheap at $24 USD but I’ve never purchased a Longo product I didn’t love so cheers to the Muse purchasing these and reviewing them for you shortly!

vincent+longo

Also included in the line up are three colors of Gelli Gloss. Each gloss is $15 USD and provides a sheer, delicate color for your lips! They look interesting enough but I think I can safely skip.

And finally Hydro Stick Blush in 4 colors for $25 USD each. These remind me of NARS Multiplies and heck they are nearly $12 USD cheaper so you might want to head to Sephora and swatch yourself silly trying to find that perfect Orgasm dupe for the price!

I’m looking forward to this collection and I am very tempted to order it online but I think I’ll head into Sephora to have a quick peek and swatch prior to purchasing!

Beauty on a Budget: Glossy, Shiny Lips with Avon Pro-to-Go Lipstick

I remember when I was around 13 or 14 years old, a very not so long time ago, I had these really cute Bonne Bell flip-up gloss sticks. Now at the time I was the height of popularity due to these awesome glosses! I’m talking major cool here!

Turns out, after a quickie visit to Bonne Bell’s website, they still make these flip up gloss sticks! W00t! I’m all for re-living my teenage years!

Ok, ok I might be a tad bit old for cosmetics purchased from Bonne Bell however Avon is allowing me to cash in on awesome packaging with it’s new Pro-to-Go Lipstick. Hells these don’t only carry the same great style as the my old Bonne Bell flip glosses they also happen to carry about the same price tag at $5.99 USD each! Can you seriously hurt anyone by trying these out?

You know how much I heart Avon lately right? I couldn’t not test try these new Pro-to-Go Lipsticks for myself so away I went on my merry way to obtain some!

They happen to be pretty darn nice! The formula is a beautifully moisturizing, glossy lip color that has fantastic pigmentation and nice staying power!

I can’t begin to say how impressed I am with Avon lately. As a long time Avon hater I must admit that lately some of their products are pretty bloody good plus the amazingly, inexpensive price tag keeps me coming back for second and third helpings!

I’ll go ahead and admit that the awesome formula isn’t really what had turned me on to purchasing these….I liked the packaging. Don’t you dare sit there and say you never purchased cosmetics for the packaging alone! You’d be a liar if you said that!

Picture+381

The packaging on these is just super and I’m sweating it really hard! Sorry but it’s a fact that the packaging had my heart before the formula every did! It’s your basic slimline lipstick with a chic little click slider on the slide that slides up and down to open the cap on top and bring the lip color into view for a quick slip on the lips and go thus the name I guess…Pro…to…Go!

These are available in 15 colors which is pretty darn nice! Gives you a nice selection of color to choose from! They are on par with MAC Slimshines formula wise and are at least half the price! So if you’re kinda budgeting yourself at the moment and you’re lemming MAC Slimshines these are a nice, inexpensive substitute!

The two color selections I took for a test drive were Russet which is a beautiful maroon red and Pink Passion which is a very beige, nude pink.

Picture+387

Both colors looked great on even though I’m not normally a nude girl I did enjoy how nice Pink Passion appeared on my lips!

I actually used them without gloss as they were moisturizing enough to do without plus they did have a faint gleam on my lips.

All and all, for the price, you can’t really go wrong or hurt anyone by giving these a try! I’d definately give them a whirl! The price, packaging, and the good formula all work well to create a really nice, solid product!

Cheers to Avon for creating some killer items lately! The Muse likey!

Tried these?

Love ‘em?

Hate ‘em?
