Out of all the Lush moisturizers, this is my favorite. I have combo skin oily in tzone and dryer on the perimeter. Most moisturizers with oils in them clog my pores. This one hasn't. I love the smell, the fact that it is hydrating without clogging and that it sinks right in without leaving a residue. The packaging isn't the best but that is because its Lush and they don't really believe in packaging. I do like moisturizers in a pump bottle which is more hygenic, so I will transfer this one into a pump container.
I'm in love with these. I bought Sophisticated eyeshadow which is a beautiful shimmery taupe to apply all over your lid. I then lined my lids with Quietly Motivated which is a nice medium bronze and the combo was spectacular. I was skeptical about the staying power because in the past all creams shadows creased on me. These are liquidy goodness and they stayed put for a 8 hour shift and then some. I also bought the deep plum lipstick called Confident. Its a gorgeous deep plum perfect for fall. I do have to add a clear lip balm over it because my lips are on the dry side and without lip balm the product stuck to my dry spots. It doesn't last as long on me as a lip stain, but it does last longer than a lip gloss. I love these and plan to buy more.
Blush -Burberry - Light Glow (blush) in n. 2 (Cameo)

I wanted to write a review on this blush and how fantastic it is. I am reviewing the color No. 1 (Russet) which is a gorgeous soft shade, it is almost a coral rose if that were a color. It has a hint of brown, but is not muddy. It is very pigmented and you only need a dab. Once blended it gives a pop of color that looks natural and healthy as if you just went out for a brisk walk in the cool fall air. I am a medium-light skintone and I have red hair, I thought that it might clash with my coloring, but it looks so natural. I am not sure if a blonde haired blue eyed girl would look ok in this, but I do see this color flattering to a lot of others. The consistency is silky and long lasting. I highly recommend.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Luvalla - Balancing Day & Night Cream

I love this cream. I have combination sensitive acne-prone mature skin (what a mouthful!) and this cream is heaven in a tube. The texture is silky creamy, smells divine and sinks right in. I like to use essential oils often and during the day I find applying an oil is too much under makeup. This cream is the perfect balance. It also seems to stop my oil production without making me look too matte or dry. I use Retin A at night about 2 - 3 times per week and when I get those little flakies this cream takes care of it without greasing me down. I always loved Jurlique creams for their purity, but this cream is definately giving Jurlique a run for its money. I like this cream better.
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Devita Daily Solar Protective Moisturizer spf 30

Holy Grail here. I have very sensitive mature acne prone skin. I am currently using Retin A at night a few times per week. I have trouble with alot of sunscreen ingredients either they break me out or irritate me. This one did neither. Its consistency is a gel-cream which I like alot as it sinks right in. I do layer this over another gel-cream moisturizer (Anna-Lisa Calendula) and a treatment serum as I find the Devita on its own is not enough for moisture. In winter I will layer it over a heavier moisturizer. It is fantastic for layering as it does not ball up or sweat off or cake on. It truly is amazing. I love it.
