Smolder is my HG liner. I was using Stila's onyx before, and even though the color payoff is out of this world...it still smudges like crazy! Smolder is an intense eye kohl that is vibrant, goes on easily but doesn't smudge. It's very versatile meaning you can wear it numerous ways. I mostly like it for my waterline! I'm on my second pencil (because I lost the first one) and I was lost without it. The price is a little on the expensive side, but I only wear it when I go out so it's worth it to me. If your looking for an eye pencil that will give you that dramatic/smokey eye this is it!! Many makeup guru's use this, that's actually how I found out about it. I will continue to repurchase this!!
I went to MAC yesterday because I had some B2M's to turn in and since I'm always on the hunt for a nude lipstick I figured I'd give Myth a try. I had also heard rave reviews on Myth from several magazines. TBH, I'm not sure about this lipstick. I'm NC40 skintone and I find that it is very light on my lips. I will agree that if your looking for that "androgenous look" this is perfect. I did swatched this on the back of my hand at the store, and it looked like a very nude beige w/slight pink undertones so I thought this would be perfect. However when I wear it alone I get a concealer look. The color has alot of grey casts to it. I did apply it using MAC's Hodgepodge liner and topped it w/NARS Turrkish Delight and it was pretty. I'm kinda torn b/c on it's own I don't like it. When I add other colors and a liner to it it's good. A good lipstick IMO shouldn't need other adjustments. I also tried dabbing it on vs swiping it on and it was better. With Myth I find that I could easily achieve the same look by using concealer on my lips and adding a liner and gloss to it. As far as it being dry it is. I would recommend exfoliating your lips prior and also use chapstick before applying, because it will accentuate any dry spots/lines. I'm giving Myth 3 lippies b/c I've only tried it once and I feel as though I need to experiment w/different looks before I give up on it.
I'm a lil confused by Dreamtime. I've been a fan of YBM for the longest time but wanted to try something different so I thought I would give this a whirl. I don't get the scent. It's extremely light, herbal and plain. I gave it 2 lippies because I kinda liked how it made my skin feel but it's soooo overpriced for a tiny melt that did nothing. Ceridwen's Cauldron is better and bigger. I will stick to that.
It's amazing how this plain bath ball is my absolute favorite bath bomb! I didn't really know what to expect from Butterball. All I know is that I have dry skin, and love moisturizing treats for my skin. Immediately my body drank this up. It's filled w/shea butter along w/other moisturizers. I like how some of the butter was floating in my tub, so I picked them up and rubbed them all over me. The smell is amazing...slightly baby powder scent. My only caution w/this bomb is it will make your tub greasy so be careful getting up and reentering, I almost slipped...but if your skin is dry like mine, you will love Butterball!
Wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this online, but this is my favorite bubble bar! Left my skin super smooth, turned my water into a milky abyss, and completely relaxed my mind and spirit. I didn't cocktail this w/anything else and it surpassed my expectations. The smell is delightful and I will always purchase this. I'm so glad that I bought this on a whim...it's now my favorite :) I just wish it was cheaper and a lil bigger but I will repurchase this always!
I bought this online because LUSH was having a 50% off sale at the time so I figured what the heck. Anyhow, I previously read reviews on TIsty Toasty and was shocked at so many negative reviews. Maybe I got a bath bomb from heaven because mine was great! It had a nice feminine rose smell to it, although the rose buds are pointless meaning decor only. It left my skin feeling milky soft and lightly perfumed. Not a huge rose fan here, but I did enjoy the smell and the total experience. Next time I want to use it w/my boyfriend ;)
This smells almost identical to Summer Pudding but unfortunately, it's not even moisturizing. Godmother left my skin feeling squeaky clean, and very dry. I'm not a fan of the artificial/candy/berry scent either. It left a nice hot pink mess in my shower. Surprisingly, my boyfriend liked the smell of this (which kinda freaked me out) because he said it smelled like skittles candy lol. Off it goes to him
I cut this in 1/2 and make 2 uses out of Avobath. I also cocktail this w/ YBM, Sexy Peel, and Each Peach massage bar. I'm typically not a citrus person, but for some reason I love this! It smells like citrusy-lemons. It does a fantastic job at moisturizing. Doesn't leave a greasy film in my tub either.
This soap has me a little torn. I loooooove the exfoliation seeds in it, but the smell...kinda soapy to me. It smells a little like laundry detergent. I can appreciate the overall components to this soap like the leaves, color, lather and seeds, but I wish it didn't smell so "soapy". As far as longevity, it's lasted a really long time for me and hasn't melted away in the tub like alot of LUSH soaps.

Love the vanilla smell! Not my absolute favorite, but it's good. It's very relaxing to use, but the scent didn't linger on my skin like some others. Didn't really moisturize either. I mainly like this for the scent.
Short and to the point...this mask stunk..bad. Not sure if I got a bad batch but I couldn't get past the smell. It smelled like rotten sushi. Didn't notice anything different w/my skin. Waste of money. Sorry LUSH but I will pass on this one :(
Eau Roma Water is by far the best toner I have ever used! HG stuff here ladies! I used to use Aveda toner water that cost 3x's as much but recently tried this and I'm in love! I use this after washing my face w/Aqua Marina, and before I use Skin Drink. If you have dry skin, you will absolutely love this! My skin literally drinks this up and it's nice b/c it preps my skin before I apply my moisturizer. It has a nice rose/lavender scent to it too. I typically pump 4-5 squirts on my face. There's so many toners out there that are horrible for your skin. They contain alcohol and other stripping agents in them. If you've had bad luck w/a toner...try this, you will impressed. I will continue to purchase this!
Hahaha Each Peach smells just like Pledge furniture polish but I like it? The name is deceiving...doesn't smell at all like peaches but it does smell like lemons. I like to cocktail this with Avobath and Sexy Peel. It does seal the citrus effect in using it this way. My only gripe is you have to be careful where you store this because it will melt, and it does take some time for it to fully absorb into your skin. Sometimes I have to wait over 1/2 hour before getting into bed because it's still greasy. Other than that, once it absorbs, your skin is very soft and smells absolutely delicious! Just make sure your partner is a lemon fan because this can be slightly overpowering when going to bed. I will repurchase this, but don't see me anytime soon because I still have tons left after having this for 6 months.
I would give this 3.5 lippies if I could. I ordered Summer Pudding online before smelling it, IMO it smells exactly like Godmother. I'm not a artificial/berry scent fan but I do like how it has granules in it that offer a nice exfoliation. The soap was milkier than others. I found that it moisturized better than Godmother that left my skin feeling very dry. Not sure if I would buy this again because I'm not a huge fan of the smell. I guess I could deal w/it, after all it's not a bad smell, just not one of my favorites. I was hoping for a more authentic fruity smell. If they changed that, then this would be one of my top soaps from LUSH.
Bought this on a whim and I really love Big Blue. I love the experience it gives me. Everything from the smell to the seaweed in it...I adore. Leaves your water a beautiful blue color. It reminds me of bathing in a fragrant ocean that leaves my skin nice and soft and completely eases my mind after a stressful day.This to me is my favorite bath bomb to relax. It does make a your tub a lil messy but I don't mind, after my bath I just scoop up the seaweed and throw them out. It also doesn't leave a greasy residue in your tub like some LUSH bombs do. Can't wait to buy this again!
