I got this as a GWP and after first looking at it i gave it to my mum, but she didn't take to it, so just the other day i experimented using this as an eyecream and its fantastic! My tub is for combination to dry skin and it nourishes the undereye area really well and sinks in quickly. I have also been using this on my neck and its great, i would say there are two cons, firstly the scent. It's light but it's noticable and it smells faintly of sunscreen and chemicals. Secondly this isn't a cheap moisturiser, so i will continue use on the eye and neck areas and if i continue to enjoy it, i will probably repurchase
Love this cremesheen! It's part of the In The Groove collection, It's a creamy peach, though its fairly sheer on the lips. What i love about it though is how smooth and non-sticky it is! Totally different to a regular MAC lipglass and now i've tried this i don't think i will be able to go back.
Having always heard MAC mascaras were passable, I never really looked into them. Only when i got this as a gift and tried it did i realise it works for me! I would say i have regular to long lashes and there not super thick. I curl my eyelashes and apply 1 or 2 coats of this and its great! For me it almost rivals lash blast (covergirl) because i get the volume as well as the length! If your on the fence, give it a go, especially in Australia because a drugstore mascara is realistically only a few dollars less!
Don't be fooled by the look of this product in the pan, it is not just any blush, this is amazing! I have never been a fan of shimmer or glitter on my cheeks as my skin is no where near perfect, but this really creates a glowy sheen. Its so beautiful! I've been wearing this everyday as a blush and bronzer and putting a little bit of pink blush towards my apples and its gorgeous! If your thinking about getting this, do it! You won't regret it!
Love this! The citrusy, tart lemon-grass scent is delicious and so far my favourite scent from LUSH. It makes the bath water a pretty green and i find that half the bomb is plenty for a bath - and you can even smell the scent while relaxing in the bath. I find alot of other lush scents seem to disappear once the bomb has hit the water, definetly will be repurchasing!!
First off, this conditioner smells lovely like a soft vanilla but i think thats where my love ends. From reading other reviews, i agree this makes hair a bit dull and knotty due to no silicone so i have found my self using my herbal essence conditioner every couple of washes just so my hair dosnt become too unmanageable, but i think i have come to the decision that after buying a small bottle to try for A$14 and noticing the tangly-ness, the good smell isnt enough to make me repurchase, especially when i can get my herbal essence in a much bigger bottle for around A$6 and i feel like it is actually conditioning my hair and making it feel silky.
I'm in two minds about this mask. It smells absolutely amazing like chocolate cake batter with a hint of mint but in terms of the mask making a difference to my skin I'm not really sure. I have oily skin and this tends to give me a nice matte face after i remove the mask, but the next day i will be a little bit flaky especially around pimples. I also feel like the mask is a bit too rich for my face to use it up enough times before it expires. I have been using it every couple of nights in order to use it up and i think it may have made my skin a little more congested, though whether thats due to the clay bringing out my pimples i'm not sure...
The scent of this is so relaxing. Its hard to describe but it reminds me of something close to lavender, but not, which is good as I'm not such a fan of lavender. I used the whole bomb in my bath and unfortunately the scent didn't last too long as its quite faint to begin with but it left my skin soft and it left me feeling clean and relaxed. My only gripe would be the stars which sink to the bottom of the bath, which are very sharp and a pain to clean up. I would probably buy this again but only in a christmas sale or something because I'm not sure its worth full price.
Vanilla in the mist is a nice soap. Its not amazing or terrible its just kind of normal. Its one of LUSH's creamier soaps, which I like. I find it lathers sufficently but leaves a kind of yellow tint that washes completely off, it reminds me of the stuff used to sanitize people before surgery, so its a bit weird! The scent is ok, not something I would buy again. It smells slightly of vanilla but mostly of something doughy that isn't quite sweet. Not a soap I would purchase again but I'm glad I've tried it.
This is such a unique product! Who else makes a facial soap that has chalomine to soothe redness? I'm surprised its not more popular because its so effective! After using this soap my face looks radiant and the only redness is right on pimples i have, not the whole area around them. Using this soap makes me feel like im doing something really good for my skin and i love the results. When i wash it off it sometime feels a little tight, but i find a bit of toner and moisturiser clear the tightness up nicely. Would definitely recommend for people worried about redness because its really helped me!
After a bit of research on lush.com i went into the store wanting to buy a sugary sweet soap, i smelled the snow fairy shower gel, and while it was sweet there was something in it that wasn't quite right. Then i smelled rockstar which i had previously smelled and loved but once i smelled angels delight i knew it was the one for me! Its sugary and sweet but i think its a bit different than most other sugary scents. It reminds me of gummy bears and lollies. And its a lovely looking soap. I think the only downfall is it isn't very moisturising and gives a squeaky clean feel after use. But i don't mind it, i want to stock up before its gone after Christmas!
Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

I love this powder! This controls my oil better than blot powder and looks so much more natural, my only gripe would be the packaging because the powder is so fine it tends to get messy and a lot comes out. Would buy this over and over again though, because it leaves the face looking natural and not powdery while controlling oil!
This is one hell of a mascara, i don't think i have ever applied one coat of mascara and thought wow maybe thats too much volume! Its crazy and after my initial shock i love it! The formula is pretty thick and the brush might take a bit of getting used to but this mascara is amazing!
This is gorgeous! I have it on my nails right now and there is nothing i would prefer. It is the most gorgeous vibrant fuchsia that is shiny and beautiful all the time and in the sun it simply glows with tiny silver shimmers. This is also a great formula, some OPI's are thick and goopy but this one is thinner, smoother and twice as opaque! Love it
Let me just start buy saying i love this colour! It is stunning and a bit retro. Unfortunately for me this one is so streaky and inconsistent! After one coat it was similar consistency to OPI Alpine Snow which evens out after 2, but a second coast of this colour just dosnt cut it, because it still looks streaky. After the third i feel like its too clumpy. But out of 5 fingers 2 look great and the other 3 look terrible. Unfortunately just too much work for me...
