Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - The Olive Branch

Jul/07/2011

Disappointed with this shower gel. It's my first go with LUSH gels and Olive Branch leaves me wondering if I will bother with them again. I envisioned rolling hills of Tuscany, bright and comforting, but this just smells too musty, perfumey and fake. It must be the added 'perfume' I noticed high on the ingredients list. It also leaves my skin dry when practically no gel ever has …Read more

The shade is beautiful. In fact, most of the shades are stunning and very brightly pigmented. Unfortunately that is the only positive. I went to Sephora recently to test these and the UD eyeshadow sticks. I swatched every color on my hand. I swiped all the colors about an hour later and it rubbed/smeared right off..incredibly easily. I've seen drugstore items with better staying power. Of …Read more

Honestly, I didn't like this brush at first. I even swapped away a backup. The problem was actually user error. Once I fixed that, this cheap, but effective flat top brush is easily one of my favorites for applying my Meow mineral foundation. It's super soft and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
A little black die did run out after the first washing, but that's it. It …

I have been wanting this polish for a while now and finally picked it up during Sephora F & F. Well, it's as nice as I expected it to be. Applies pretty good. I don't like the small brush but it's doable and the formula is nice. Lasting power is great. The color is just gorgeous, a light green/blue with micro-shimmers. Would I buy this again? No. DUPE ALERT! Sinful's …Read more

OH my. This is one of the sexiest fragrances ever. I actually got this in a swap and had no idea what it smelled like in advance so it was quite a gamble, but it paid off! I really like sweet, fruity smelling perfumes (RL Romance, Lancome Miracle, etc) and this one is entirely unique. It isn't cloying at all. My only gripe is the lasting power ( an hour or 2 on me) is pathetic for a …Read more

Yuck! I seriously dislike this product. It burns my face like you wouldn't believe. I like that they are super moist and it removes makeup pretty well. That's about it, though. Overly fragranced, too. Stay away if you have sensitive, acne prone skin.

I fell in love with this the first time it met my nose! Very feminine and sultry smelling. Woodsy yet a little floral. It can be a little cloying if you over-do it so just spray your wrists or neck then dab on other areas. I have had several people compliment me while wearing this fragrance. Some said I smelled like marijuana?!?! Since then I only wear it out when I don't have to worry about …Read more

This stuff is absolute junk. I was real excited to try it, too. Picked up the duo package from Walmart last night and went straight home to put it on. What a mess! First of all, the formula was very very dry (maybe old product?) I was struggling to build it up because of how dry it was. The color is also sort of charcoal and not striking at all. I put The Falsies mascara on the other eye and …Read more

I am shocked by the negative reviews here. Meow's eyeshadows are some of my absolute favs! I have tried all their different formulas and while they may not all be completely unique, the pigmentation is great. I am especially impressed with their seasonal/LE collections, which showcase some of the most beautifully complex shades I have ever seen, from ANY other brand, period. They look best …Read more

Horrible mascara! I bought this in brown, which is pretty much black. The formula is very runny and gets everywhere. It also clumps like crazy and the wand is absolutely useless! It doesn't fan or anything, no matter your application technique. Sure you could run a lash comb through, but you have to do it over and over and it winds up bringing down my curl. Lashes felt crunchy. Was harder to …Read more
