It’s my first Lush Christmas as a full blown addict and I’ve already hauled and then hauled again with a wishlist a mile long of all the things I need. Before I was able to get myself in a store the lovely in-laws surprised me with a bath bomb from Lush and it was one of the Christmas ones at the top of my list, Golden Wonder.
Makeup Revolution has been creating some serious packaging need recently. They brought out their Rose Gold lipsticks and it was so hard not to buy all of them simply for the packaging. Chauffeur all soft pink beige, was of course the one I picked…for now.
I have been fighting thin, prone to oily hair since forever T_T I can’t touch or brush my hair after I have set it in the morning and I can’t even look at hair treatments. I kind of just gave in to the oily, limp look, but once again I have been rescued my the Lush fairies with Roots Hair Treatment.
Eyeshadow is hard for me. Lipstick, contour, everything else I can do and if I may say so I do it well, but eye shadow some days I just can’t. I feel like I never end up with a good look. So for the last wee while my focus has been on mastering eyeshadow and bringing different colours and looks into my every day makeup looks. One of the things I have learnt while doing this is that you need an eyeshadow primer. I have used my Jordana eye primer off and on when I remembered, but when I got serious about upping my eyeshadow game I knew I had to start and eyeshadow primer hunt.
Freedom Cosmetics and Makeup Revolution are always the best place to start for me. In my recent haul from TAM beauty I slipped in a eyeshadow primer and hoped it would lead me down the path of fly eye makeup. Read more
Mascara is one of the easiest things to collect, but that doesn’t mean everyone you magically end up with is a good one. In a mascara I look for something that with fully coat all my lashes without clumping them together and make them look as full as possible. After using Revitalash I am blessed with quite lush eyelashes at the moment, but something that would make them look longer wouldn’t go a miss.
Maybelline recently launched their Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara designed to give lashes a dark, sultry look, with all the volume and a formula designed to keep them beautifully curled and in place. Yes Please!
Maybelline has launched new face products left, right and center lately. With my weakness for foundations I knew I had to try the new Dream Velvet Foundation and then when they launch products together, you just have to get all of them together. Or you know just get excuses to buy more makeup XD So I purchased then Master Conceal, Dream Velvet Foundation and Master Fix Setting Spray.
Back again with more swatches of the L.A.Girl Matte Flat Velvet Lipsticks. Over and over again they keep impressing me and sending me back to buy more! In part three of my swatch fest I have Vavoom, Bliss, Hot Stuff and Snuggle for you today.
2016 seems to be the saga of the makeup removal for me. I have tried a great number of really good ways to remove your makeup this year, from cloths that just need water, cream cleansers, different Micellar waters and wipes. Each has there only awesome way of removing my makeup, but some have fallen down in other areas despite being amazing. None have truly swayed me to repurchase either because they still needed a lot of product or rubbing to get it to work or stripped my skin too much or couldn’t be used more than three or four times a week. On I went to find something bigger and better to help me remove my makeup.
Then along came Lush…
Too Faced has always had such cute packaging and I am always such a sucker for packaging! Since they came out with the Love Flush blushes I knew that I need at least one of them in my collection and now that I got my hands on Your Love Is Kings I hope some of my makeup lust is satisfied. Read more

Rosy Cheeks is my first Lush face mask and promises to give you soft, matte and calm skin, just what I need in my life. Read more
