This smells heavenly and I used one whole bar per bath. The scent is so soothing and relaxing! It's definitely my favourite Lush bubble bar:-) My skin feels really soft after I used this. Love love love!
Lotions/ Creams -Nuxe - Huile Prodigieuse (Multipurpose dry oil)
shelnmum 5/27/2012 10:18:00 PM
I finally purchased a 100ml bottle of this dry oil over the weekend as there was a 20% off at my local beauty store. I have read so much about this and had always wanted to try it. I must admit what attracted me is the scent, I felt like I am on a beach holiday :) The oil is easily absorbed and leaves my skin soft. (I have only used this twice over the weekend and I used it after my shower at night.) I think the 100ml bottle will last me for a good while :)
Lipstick -Hourglass - Femme Rouge Velvet Creme- All
shelnmum 1/19/2012 2:42:00 AM
I bought a tube of this lipstick in Fresco and it has such a lovely silky texture and such a nice natural rosy shade! :) However, the lipstick broke on the second day I used it :( :( :( I have since ordered a second one in the same shade from Zuneta.com and waiting for its arrival. Can't wait! :)
I bought this from my local Sephora after reading a lot of good reviews on this mascara. It is worth the high price. The application and removal of this mascara is quick and easy. Love how this opens up my eyes :) This is now my HG mascara! :)
Blush -Le Metier de Beaute - Radiance Powder Rouge in Echo
shelnmum 1/19/2012 2:30:00 AM
I bought this blush unseen as I had ordered this from Nordstrom.com. When it arrived, I almost could not find the blush as it is really tiny! And Nordstrom packed it amongst huge pieces of brown paper... The first thought I had was, did they forget to send me the blush? Luckily I searched and found this really tiny box between the brown paper! The packaging is similar to the rubbery packaging of NARS products, finger prints, dust and dirt magnet :( Color wise, I wasn't really impressed with it when I saw it in the pan, but when I applied it, it gave my cheeks a fresh look. That's the only saving grace for this tiny USD30 product!
Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
shelnmum 1/19/2012 2:12:00 AM
I finally got myself a tube of this eyeshadow primer after almost every beauty blogger raved about it! :) And indeed, this is better than UDPP! This goes on colorless and a little goes a long way! I have oily lids and I used this yesterday for the first time. Applied my NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner after using this and the eyeliner lasted for more than 14 hours! No creasing, no fading! I am really very impressed! :)
I bought the Japanese version of the Snow Fairy Liptint when it came out in October when I was in Japan for a working trip. The Japanese version is actually better as it is packaged in a better tin, and the texture is more silky as compared to the UK version which is a tad too waxy and dry :( The smell is nice at first but after a while, I find it gives me a slight headache as commented by another reviewer.
I went completely crazy and hoarded this shower gel! :P As there is no Lush stores where I live, I bought a 500ml bottle for 3000JPY when I was in Japan and later I realised it only cost about 8GBP if I buy it off the Lush UK website which ships internationally! :( Anyways, to minimise the damage done to me, I purchased another 500ml bottle which I believe must have been lost in mail and I am still waiting for the replacement. I went on to order another 250ml bottle from Lush HK. Crazy, I know :P Anyways, on to the shower gel. I adore the scent, its really sweet and I adore the pink colour of this shower gel! :) It rinses off easily too, which is what I liked :)
Eyeliner -Stila - Smudge Stick Water Proof Eye Liner in Moray
shelnmum 7/27/2011 3:24:00 AM
I bought this eye pencil as I am currently on a coloured eye liner craze :P It is a convenient pencil which you twist up for more without having to sharpen. I loved the unique olive colour with sparkles. I got compliments when I wore this, this looks quite natural although it is a colored eye liner. It is quite pricey at 20USD, there is no attached sharpener (some brands like Chanel & Rimmel have a hidden sharpener at the top of the pencil). Texture wise it is creamy and easy to apply as compared to Chanel and MAC which are quite dry in texture and tugged at my eyelids. I have already ordered 2 more of these in Purple Tang and Blue Ribbon :)
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eyeshadow Pencil in Mercury
shelnmum 6/27/2011 3:02:00 AM
This is my first UD 24/7 Glide-On Eyeshadow Pencil and I have absolutely no regrets buying this! :) When I want a smokey eye look, I just use this baby, which glides on nicely on my lids and I a good to go. I have received a lot of compliments whenever I use this :) I have since purchased 3 more in Delinquent - very beautiful shimmery dark purple, Wasteland - dark brown and Midnight Cowboy (a shimmery beige). I hope they will never discontinue this :) And I will definitely repurchase when I run out :)
I really want to love this pencil, what with so many raves on it. This is a beautiful navy blue with subtle shimmers. However, I think my eyelids are too oily. The pencil smudged like crazy by mid day :( And I also find it to be too dry for my liking as it tugged on my eyelids. It is also expensive for such a small pencil. I prefer Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils.
I bought this in a set with the cheekie brush as I read alot of good reviews on how easy it is to apply the cheekie with the brush. The brush is cute and chubby with short and neat bristles. However, I think I have not gotten the hang on how to use the brush to apply the cheekie :( The cheekie did not apply evenly if I used the brush. However, applying with my fingers gives a more even application. I really like the colour Peachie on my cheeks, it's a fresh peachy color that makes me look really healthy :) I applied it on my cheeks after liquid foundation followed by powder and It lasted for a good 8 hours on my cheeks! :) I may buy the Cheekie palette next :)
I first saw this lip stick being worn by blogger Keiko Lynn and I thought it is such a nice nude colour! I am always in search of the perfect nude lipstick and when I saw the description on Julie Hewett's website, I decided to order this. It is a sheer lipstick and it does not last long. But I do like the colour. I may try pairing this lipstick with a nude lip liner to see if the combo will last longer on my lips :)
I just bought this gloss and o-glow blush today. I was very curious to try these 2 products and i was so surprised that both these really turned pink on my lips and cheeks! Two cons, 1) the o gloss kinda stained my lips & 2) it take some time to remove the staining.
Lip Gloss -NARS - Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Happy Days
shelnmum 5/13/2011 9:31:00 AM
I have 3 of these pencils, Happy Days, New Lover & Baroque and this is my fav of the 3. The colour is a beautiful shimmery coral and it looks beautiful on me :) However, I find this a little drying, needs sharpening and has a waxy smell to it. I will not repurchase.
