I really like this, but I think you have to have the right hairstyle to pull it off. I have very long, layered, wavy, thick hair. I spray it in and then blow my hair dry. I get a very cool just from the beach look, but I can understand why you wouldn't if you didn't have this exact hairstyle. Also, I looooove the scent.
Fragrances -Coty - Harajuku Lovers by Gwen Stefani - G

I am in love. Everything about this fragrance is perfect. Its sweet youthful scent, its adorable packaging.
When I first purchased it, it reminded me of a beachy version of L by Lolita Lempicka. The more I wear it, though, the less vanilla I think it is, and it's more of an oceany coconut pineapple. I grew up in Florida, and it reminds me of home. It's also a very sheer fragrance, perfect for layering to your preference.
And how could I review this product without mentioning its truly unique and cute bottle? The little Gwen doll makes me smile every time I see it.
G makes me excited to try the other four fragrances in the Harajuku Lovers line.
Cult of Cherry is pretty nice. It's actually prettier in the package than it is on my lips, though. I wish it went on just like it looks, which is a medium shimmery red. Instead it goes on like a bright plastic red with very little shimmer. I was hoping for something that looked similar to New Year's Yves, but this is definitely not it. It's ok, but I wouldn't buy it again.
So Scarlet is the perfect color for those of us who prefer a deep, berry red. It reminds me a lot of Urban Decay's Gash, but it goes on smoother. I actually find it surprisingly creamy for such a deep red.
Blot it for a sweet perfect daytime raspberry red, or just swipe it on for a glamorous evening look.
Polishes -MAC - Illegal Purple (Cult of Cherry Collection)

Illegal purple is a very dark, almost black, purple. It's gorgeous and sophisticated. It actually looks like a dark red until you start to layer it, and it becomes this creamy deep purple. So beautiful.
I've never really been a huge fan of MAC nail polishes, but this has instantly become my must have nail color. I never buy back ups of nail polishes, but I'm going to have to get a back up of this. It is absolutely the perfect dark purple.
The only complaint I might have, and this is minor, is the brush seems fairly big. I have teeny tiny nails (not super short, just small) and the brush is almost as wide as my nail, so it makes precise application a bit tricky.
I actually love this liner. I think the color is bright and fun, and have actually gotten compliments on it. As for the lasting part, that is very true. I took a shower and it was still on my eyes without smudging. That's amazing and kinda weird. It did, however, come off with eye makeup remover no problem.
This is my first Fluidline and wow, have I been missing out. Such a smooth application, and it dries fast so I don't have to worry about smudging it like liquid liner. The color is a deep rich plum, which I actually like to use as an alternative to black. I need to check out more shades, because so far I'm in love with this product.
I've always wanted to try this. I was so intrigued by the reviews. Well, I found it at CCO, so I couldn't resist. I never thought I'd say this about what appears in the tube to be a glittery neon green lip gloss, but this is beautiful. I've just recently gotten into lustreglasses, as I thought I preferred the stickiness and pigmentation of lipglasses. Spring Bean, though, gives a long lasting shimmery shine without being sticky. When applied, it is a sweet sheer honey color that is surprising and unique. I simply adore it.
This is ok. I love Lush dusting powders, but this is toward the bottom of my list. It's not bad, just not as good at the others.
It smells like licorice and honey, and I do wish it was just full on honey. I was hoping for something sweeter.
If you're familiar with Lush dusting powders, the texture of this is very similar to Karma, meaning it's one of the grittier ones.
I love the Ginger scent from Lush. I actually first got into it because of the dusting powder, which I got for free at some promotional event. The perfume is really nice, but really, really strong. I put it on well before I leave home, because it would actually be distracting at work otherwise. However, once it settles, it is the beautiful glamorous gorgeous Ginger I have come to love.
Love this! I'm usually not a fan of frost, but this was such a pretty shade, I had to get it. It's a nice warm shimmer for summer. I do, however, to find it more of a peach than pink shade.
The other reviewer is right, you only need one swipe of it. The temptation is there to over apply it, but a little goes a long way.
This is pretty nice, but I'm not totally in love. I expected the purple to be more of a vibrant true purple, but as another reviewer said, it's a bit bruise-ish looking. The gold side, though, is just beautiful. And when you use both sides together in the look, it looks less like you have a black eye, and with enough blending and working with the colors, you can achieve a really pretty look.
So pretty! I don't even know what else to say. It's just pretty. Dainty actually makes me happy to wear it. Such a beautiful glowy flush that would look great on most.
This is pretty much the best stuff in the world. It smells like lime lollipops. It's also not as watery as most Lush shower gels. I love it so much, I actually open up the bottle and take a whiff, even if I'm washing with a different product. Yes, I admit it. I'm sure that makes me a Slammer addict. ;)
This is one of my absolute favorite Lush products, and by far my favorite Lush shower gel. The reviewer who said it smells like jasmine, tea, and honey is exactly right. Jasmine is definitely the most powerful of the scents, with the honey just adding a bit of sweetness. I find it to be ultra feminine, a bit old fashioned, and all around gorgeous
It also has my favorite texture of the Lush shower gels. With the exception of Flying Fox and Happy Hippy, I find their shower gels to be quite runny and not thick enough. Flying Fox is kind of the thickness of honey without being sticky.
For those hoping to find a honey scented shower gel, this is not it. This is very much a jasmine scented product with a touch of honey. Check out Honey I Washed the Kids soap, Flying Saucers shower gel or Honey Waffle soap, the last two of which are coming out with the Retro collection, if you're looking for a sweet honey scent from a Lush shower product.
