Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
Cali22 11/27/2012 8:37:00 PM
I love this so much. Its a really rich black, yet it dries right away and never smudges. It stays put for hours. I have had it for about 6 months, using it about 4 days out of the week and I still have most of it left and it is still as creamy as it was the day I bought it. This makes the price well worth it to me. It works really well with the slanted MAC eyeliner brush I bought. I wont ever buy any other eyeliner again.
What the heck, Lush?? I love creamy, spicy scents so was excited to try this based on the description. It doesn't even smell remotely like milk or spices at all. It took me a while to figure it out but to me it smells exactly like the aqua marina facial cleanser. Very weird. Kind of a soapy, calamine smell? This is one lush product that I didn't appreciate. The bubbles also lasted about 1 min. The water didn't feel or look any different.
I should have listened to the reviews about this one! I hoped it would be a nice light cherry scent as described, but it is really medicinal and I don't really get any cherry. I like the consistency though, its a nice light lotion. It does feel a bit greasy at first but sinks in well. I was expecting a nicer smell.
I have the green one. I really like the packaging, which is probably why I bought it in the first place. It isnt amazing when it comes to moisturizing, but its a nice light hand cream. I dont really like my hand lotions to be heavy anyway, as I am always waiting for it to sink in then. I probably wouldnt buy it again, just because I like trying new things.
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve

I really love this. I keep it on my nightstand and use it every night. I always wake up with soft, moisturized lips. I use it a lot during the day too, and it moisturizes so well. I dont get the dreaded white corner yucky stuff with this, so that is amazing in itself. It wears off well, without making lips look weird in the process. The scent is just subtle and not overbearing, which is nice. I have had a tin of this for about 6 months and it still ooks like I've barely used it. I actually like the tin packaging, and I dont really worry about it too much.
I love the smell of this soap. Honey, tofee....yum. The honeycomb on top is kind of cool, but I found that it was a bit annoying once the actual soap started wearing down because the honeycomb doesnt get used up as fast as the soap part. I got a wedge piece and it was kind of awkward to use without scratching myself with the honeycomb. I might end up just taking that part off. But the soap itself is very creamy and just smells great. Very nice.
I wasnt super impressed with this. It doesnt have an offensive smell, but it just isn't amazing to me. Its just kind of floral and not much else, and I'm not really into floral scents. A nice creamy shower gel, but I am finding myself struggling to use it up. I wish they would come out with a pumpkin or lady katrina shower gel for this year..
Smells like candy, bubblegum, etc. It's a very sweet, kind of artificial smell. I use this now and then when I am in the mood for it, and its nice for that. I sort of feel like a little girl when I use it, because of the smell, colour and sparkles in it, but I still like it. I wouldnt go crazy over it, but I might buy it again.
Smells are personal and this one just wasnt for me. At all. It was very overwhelming in the shower and I didnt like it. It did make my skin soft and its more moisturizing than some of the other shower gels I've tried from lush.
AHHH I love this so much. It smells soo amazing. It's like a watermelon/grape/grapefruit smell..? Really nice. I hoard this every christmas, but the jellies last a really long time for me. I usually keep them in the freezer to make them last even longer. I really hope they continue making this every christmas.
Bath Treatments -LUSH - You've Been Mangoed bath melt
Cali22 4/20/2012 2:59:00 PM
Just average for me. I'm not a huge fan of lemongrass scented things, so that may be why I dont love this. Its really lemony, and not the best lemon scent either. I really wish it actually smelled like mango. Makes skin soft, like all of the bath melts do. ps. They dont have very many bath melts to choose from, so I have discovered using pieces of the massage bars as bath melts....awesome.
Awesome smelling soap! Very fruity, creamy and a bit exfoliating (has kiwi seeds and other fruit bits in it). I found the christmas time angels delight soap to smell quite similar to this. Didn't last too long, but will buy again.
I have no idea why I took so long to try this! To me, it smells exactly like the new love perfume, or the Valentine's Day love potion massage bar. It's a spicy apple scent. This one never really caught my eye before, and I wasn't sure I wanted a yellow bath...But there is blue inside so it turns the bath a lovely green. Makes the bath water really soft and moisturizing too. Will definitely be repurchasing soon!
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Guarana Lip Butter

I bought this on a whim last week because I had never seen it before and it smelled really good. I am soo glad I did because I really like it. I don't even know what a guarana is but this smells/tastes/feels/looks amazing. Very fruity. My pot is red, and it is a light pink formula. Its glossy and moisturizing. I find it to be a much better formula than other similar body shop lip balms I have tried for some reason.. Also, I think the little pots are cute and I like them. Now why isn't there a body butter in this scent?!
Cleansers -Ponds - Deep Cleanser and Makeup Remover With Cucumber Extract
Cali22 4/4/2012 4:53:00 PM
*My review is for the light version that says it is for oily or combination skin* I have normal/combination skin but it used to be pretty dry and sensitive and this worked great for me then too. The best makeup remover/cleanser ever. I have used all kinds of makeup removers, but nothing compares to this, IMO. I used to use the normal one...It worked well too but it always felt heavy and I couldnt wait to wash my face after. I went to buy another jar and I saw this. Hallelujah!!! This is so effective at removing ALL of my makeup plus it feels amazing while I remove my makeup and especially afterwards. It makes my skin soo soft. I use this often to remove my makeup when I get home and dont use a cleanser right away after because I dont feel like I have to. I will wash my face before I go to bed though. If I am wearing a lot of makeup I like to take some off with a makeup wipe first, then go in with this, because the wipes dont get it all off. I know its an extra step, but I dont like the feeling of spreading this on a full face of makeup. If I didnt use the wipe, I would use this twice, so same thing. I just dampen a cotton pad and wipe off with that. I dont really care about the pot/hygeine issue, because I always wash my hands first. I like the pot, it seems kind of luxurious to me. It wouldnt be the same for me if it wasnt in that pot for some reason. This does not leave my face greasy, brather perfectly cleansed and balanced. Amazing! I have had trouble finding this version, but I am determined to track down a lifetime supply of this..
