Lori Greiner Deluxe Cosmetic Organizer Review

A year or so ago the Muse did a post and video about her makeup stash and within that post I blogged about Lori Greiner and how she’s a goddess from above with her awesome storage items and ideas!

A majority of my makeup collection and jewelry collection is stashed away in various storage boxes and armories that I’ve purchased from Lori’s Clever and Unique Creations line. Lori obviously thinks like a woman because her storage solutions are obviously what all of us have been looking for our entire lives! As the name suggests the are clever, unique, and exactly what makeup junkies need to stash away all there goodies!

Not a day goes by that I don’t get at least 2-3 e-mails asking me where I got my storage boxes and one in particular that gets questioned over and over again is the Lori Greiner Deluxe Cosmetic Organizer. I thought I’d do a post and review about this particular organized since it’s so chic and holds ALOT of product!

The organizer is disguised as a beautiful box complete with tassel pull but inside hides an array of awesome little nooks and crannies to stash away an entire wardrobe of makeup! I don’t want to disappoint but this one is currently out of stock on QVC however that’s why the Muse is here to tell you to 1. be on the look out for it on E-bay and 2. be sure to set your Tivo as Lori is often on QVC and this sometimes pops back into stock so you’ll want to grab it while the grabbing is good!

The top half opens to reveal four fold out trays, two on either side of the box. On the left side of the box (the top tier) you have 28 slots for lipsticks, fold this back to reveal two deep comparements for blushes, shadow palettes, etc…..move over to the middle of the box and you’ll have one main compartment for storing small bottles, more palettes, etc…also in the center, divided in half from the main compartment, you have 8 sectioned boxes to hold brushes, eye pencils, etc….on the right hand side (top tier) you have two main comparments for storing more palettes, shadows, etc…and finally on the bottom tier 8 sectioned dividers for holding blushes, shadows, etc….

As you can see the unit holds tons of product and if your collection isn’t ridiculously large you can probably fit it all safely inside this beautiful box. I actually now have three of these boxes and each is filled to the max! One is in my washroom and the other two are in my spare bedroom or what I’ve deemed “the makeup room”.

When I originally purchased my first unit it was only available in a green print but it’s since evovlved and is available in blue and pink. I’m quite partial to the pink print! I can’t recall exactly but I believe this was around $29.99-$35 USD when I purchased it and as I mentioned it is out of stock at the moment on QVC but it does sometimes slip back in and out of stock so keep your eyes opened!

Lori has a slew of other fantastic cosmetic units and storage ideas so do have a click over and check out her site for ideas on how to get your stash in order!

I have my eye on her new makeup vanity unit which looks amazing and her new mirroed spinning jewelry cabinet which looks amazing!

You can see all of her items by visiting www.lorigreiner.com

I’ve been a fan of her items for many, many years and her entire collection is Muse Approved! I really do sincerely love everything she puts out! Her ideas are simply awesome and I haven’t come across a better place that offers such amazing storage solutions and other great gift giving ideas!

Best of Urban Decay Baked Gift Set Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Friends and Family Event started yesterday but I didn’t have a chance to blog it! Get 30% off your entire order using code FFH30!

Now is a great time to stock up on palettes, shadows, and more at a 30% savings! Yay! I’m going over to have a look in a few seconds but before I do I thought I’d review one of the Best of Urban Decay Gift Sets for you!



You might have guessed that the Muse loves to match so of course gift sets that contain an array of matching items are always appealing! The new Best of Urban Decay Baked Gift Set contains everything you need to create a sizzling hot Holiday eye look by combining Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Baked, Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner, Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Bourbon, and Urban Decay Primer Potion all for $32 USD (and just think at 30% off that would be $22 USD or so!).

Even though these sets were introduced for the Holiday the Muse feels like the Best of Urban Decay Baked Gift Set is ideal for the Fall as the color combination reminds me of falling leaves! Baked eyeshadow is a shimmering bronze shade that matches up perfectly with the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Bourbon and topped with a bit of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Baked you’ll be smoking!

To create my look below I used Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Baked all over my lid and crease, lined my lower waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Bourbon, and completed my look by lining my upper lash line with Urban decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Baked. Since I was busy being Baked I brushed some Urban Decay Baked Bronzer on my cheeks as well!

If you fancy a bit of a warmer feel to your Holiday looks you should definitely check out the Best of Urban Decay Baked Gift Set and at 30% off who could go wrong? The Muse adores it and thinks you will too! Muse Approved for purchase all the way!

Harajuku Lovers Music Review

To celebrate the Muse’s latest contest to win a Harajuku Girls Solid Perfume Coffret she thought she’d do a week in review of each Harajuku Fragrance!

I’ve already reviewed these prior but that was by nose alone considering that I had only tried out ‘Lil Angel and reviewed the other based on scent cards! I’ve since gotten the chance to test this out by spraying, smelling, and testing them out on myself so I can give a better more detail review of each blend! Yay! Each Harajuku Girl fragrance is unique and interesting to say the least! I’m starting my review today with the Harajuku Girls Fragrance Music.

Always looking to make someone laugh, charismatic Music has no qualms telling it like it is! Stylin’ in a smocked sailor outfit and black lace-up boxing boots, Music marches to the beat of her own drum! Her scent is fruity floral with notes of pear, sweet pea, and sleek wood!

Music’s fruity base of pear dominates her fragrance but the combination of sweet pea creates a very special, unique floral blend that’s fun and lively! Although all five scents are something I savored and enjoyed I must say that I lean towards Music as topping my favorite list as she’s definitely different to say the least. Music manages to combine fun and sexy thanks to the slight woodsy vanilla note that comes out after dry down. The scent manages to last all day with 2-3 sprays which is pretty brilliant when taking into consideration these are EDT’s! Music should appeal to those who like a fresh, fruity, flirty blend.

The Muse likes this one because although it has touches of floral yet it still manages to remain sweet and the Muse is all about sweet blends! Music is a favorite for this Muse and says to give it a shot for yourself! It’s Muse Approved for purchase!

Philosophy Berry Bubbly Shower Gel Review

The Muse doesn’t drink. A majority of most alcoholic beverages kinda taste like nail polish remover to her so she avoids liquor like the plague plus the Muse drunk is always a rather silly sight and we all know the Muse is SO not silly! Seriously now! So indeed she does avoid alcohol like the plague and sticks to her drink of choice, tea.

What’s that? How do I know what nail polish remover tastes like anyway? Well duh! Obviously all cosmetic junkies know what it taste like! Stop asking dumb questions.

On the bright side the Muse does fancy an occasionally flute of bubbly and berries. Champagne and Strawberries were meant for each other.

You know last year the Muse happened to fall in love with Philosophy Bubbly Three in One Shower Gel and although it didn’t contain the berry it sure did bring the Bubbly! Sparkling, crisp, and beautiful were simply some of the things that were pure perfection about Philosophy Bubbly.

Philosophy decided to step up it’s game this year and created the next best thing to Bubbly….How about Philosophy Berry Bubbly! The Muse thinks nothing goes better than Strawberries and Champagne so how about Philosophy Berries and Bubbly…Mmmmmmmm sounds like a master plan to this Muse!

Although I love Philosophy Bubbly with a passion I must say that a little something extra special is contained inside Philosophy Berry Bubbly and it tops off an already great recipe and makes it pure perfection.

Philosophy Berry Bubbly starts with a fresh, sparkling, effervescent citrus base which tickles the nose. This is quickly followed up by the faint scent of sweet strawberry which combines beautifully with the sparkle of citrus to create a true to life Champagne and Strawberry scent that’s pure and fresh! Philosophy deserves a major award for creating a perfectly sparkling experience with Berry Bubbly!

Please don’t think that the scent is reminiscent of any blend of champagne and strawberry you’ve tried before because it’s completely different and unique! It’s has a certain sweetness with a full on citrus body that can simply be called sparkling! Philosophy managed to capture the “bubbly” effervescent of champagne and put it in a bottle!

Philosophy Berry Bubbly can be used in your shower, in your bath tub, or wash your hair with it! It’s three in one you see!

The Muse nabbed her bottle of Philosophy Berry Bubbly from QVC and believes as of now it’s exclusive to them however like last year I’m pretty sure you’ll see it pop up on Sephora, just renamed and repackaged!

If you can’t wait and absolutely need your dose of bubbly and berries head over to QVC and punch in Item Number A86879! This one is Muse Approved for you and for gifts! QVC has a special deal at the moment which allows you to purchase one Berry Bubbly for $18.24 USD and each additional bottle for $15.24 USD. I ordered 6 bottles…two for me and the rest for gifts as these are super nice for gift giving and the price can’t be beat! I highly suggest nabbing these before they run out and have a wait list!



Philosophy Berry Bubbly will be making a guest starring appearance under the Muse’s tree this year!
