LUSH Emotional Brilliance Lipstick Review and Swatches

For those of you who don’t know, Lush launched their makeup range not a long time ago.

I was near Lush the other day so decided to check out their lipsticks as I’ve heard very good things about them. And, wow, they did not disappoint!

I don’t own one yet but I did swatch almost all the shades on my hand in store and did put one on my lips (Lush provide disposable applicators) which I had on for the whole evening.

These are very pigmented, long-lasting and non-drying. I also love the fact that they can be used as blushers, too.

I left Lush with Charm on my lips which survived pizza and drinks with friends. I actually had to get back and get one for my friend as I knew she’d like it. The one you can see on the photo is  hers now, it is Charm.

Here are just some random swatches of Lush’s makeup. I would definitely

LUSH Rub Rub Rub and Glögg Review and Photos

I haven’t been to LUSH in some time so I’ve decided to go and get something as a part of my Birthday treat. I’ve picked up one Christmas set with a big discount (obviously) and Rub Rub Rub.

I haven’t tried  the Northern Lights soap yet but I’ve used other products several times already and want to share my opinion.

Rub Rub Rub

I personally really loved this scrub as it is such a multi-purpose product. You can use it as a scrub on a dry body, mixed with water as a scrubbing shower gel for a more gentle effect or as… shampoo!

Although it does say that you can use it on your hair I don’t think I would ever do it unless a recommendation from a friend. And, wow, I was actually really impressed with the results.

Actually when I’ve asked a lady at LUSH for her favourite product – she pointed at Rub Rub Rub. And it is lovely. Leaves the body soft and clean when used as a scrub and leaves the hair shiny and light when used as a shampoo.

The only minus is that it won’t last you for a very long time. I am through half of the bottle in less than a month. I will definitely re-purchase this product at some point.

Birthday Makeup and Beauty Purchases

First of all, I’d like to thank you for all the amazing Birthday wishes on Twitter, I was totally overwhelmed! 🙂

A lot of you asked me to share some details and, although I don’t really like writing about myself, there are some things I can show.

Here are the products that I’ve used for my evening makeup. I am sorry that some  products have so many finger prints on them, I did not have time to clean everything, it’s just a quick photo.

Although I was around so many beauty counters, I did not pick up anything. I can’t wait for Dior Addict Extreme but those lipsticks are not out yet.

I really needed a new top coat and a base coat so I’ve got Seche as I LOVE their products.

And for  some reason I’ve decided to visit Lush as I haven’t been there for ages. I’ve picked up Rub Rub Rub to try and  their ‘Scandinavian oriented’ (as I like to think)  gift set called Merry And Bright.
