Lush- #2- Easter/Spring Edition!

I could not resist when I placed my first Lush order and they sent me a little pamphlet filled with their Easter/Spring goodies. Of course, I had to immediately place another order in fear of the cute bath bombs and bubblebars being sold out quickly. Of course I had to.

So here is my order:

I haven’t used anything yet as I literally just ripped the package open because I was so excited!

Now an individual “review” of what I got!

This is Bubblegrub. This little cutie is a bubble bar, a very adorable bubble bar. Who knew a bubble bar could be so cute? 

The smell did shock me somewhat, I guess because I didn’t read the scent…I just ordered it because I couldn’t stand how cute it was and I needed one. Their description says it smells like Vanilla…hence the vanilla antennas. It smells a little bit like vanilla but I strongly smell like an outdoors, woodsy kind of smell. This bubble bar was $7.95 (USD).

This is a Hoppity Poppity bath bomb. Also super cute. I ordered two of these because I want to use one and save one. It smells like a lemon and lavender scent, smells like spring for sure! It is filled with green popping candy that will crackle, pop and fizz in the tub. It was a lot smaller than I expected it to be but then again I didn’t look at the ounces because I was so excited to get this cute bath bomb! It is a 2.8 oz bath bomb.  This bath bomb was $4.95 (USD).

This is the Fluffy Egg bath bomb. This has the most amazing smell I have ever smelled, ever. It smells like candy. Like cotton candy and vanilla combined. I absolutely love this bath bomb! This bath bomb is 4.5 oz, so it is a decent sized bath bomb. It’s bright pink and has a little flower on both sides. I seriously cannot get over how amazing it smells. This is definitely a must buy! This bath bomb was $5.95 (USD).

Also, as always, I received a small sample of one of their soaps. This time I got The Godmother. It is deep pink, candy colored soap. It smells amazing, like candy! A mix of bubble gum and cotton candy. This soap is supposed to be a soap version of their shower gel, Snow Fairy. I’m very happy they sent me this sample because this is a sample that makes me want to buy the full sized product.

Thanks for reading everyone! What are your favorite Lush products? Let me know in the comments below!

Lush- #1 

Finally, the moment I’ve been waiting for forever. Okay maybe not forever, but at least like 3-5 days which felt like forever because I was so excited!

This would be the second time I have purchased anything from Lush, the first time I went to a Lush store 5 hours away from me. That was the first time I laid eyes on and fell in love with the Comforter Bar.

Here is my order, I ordered the Bella Fruta gift box, a space girl bath bomb, and that little blue chunk is a sample of their soap Dirty Girl.

I have never ordered Lush through the mail before and I will have to say they’re packing was good. It did keep the products from breaking/cracking. However I had those packing peanuts literally EVERYWHERE, in tiny pieces and a lot of them were shredded. They have a tendency to cling to objects so I had tiny pieces all over myself, my dining room table, floor and wall. I finally got it all cleaned up! Moving on…

Here is The Space Girl Bath Bomb

Oooo, ahhhh…so pretty and glittery!

This bath bomb is made with grapefruit oil, to me it smells more like a grape scent. Regardless of the scent, it smells delicious.  There are popping candies in the middle of this bath bomb, I have yet to use this so I have never experienced it but from pictures I’ve seen and articles I have read I will definitely fall in love with it.

I am a little iffy about the glitter, don’t get me wrong I love glitter, but  I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it being all over my body.

Here is the sample I received, Dirty Soap.

Honestly smelling it for the first time I almost thought they sent me a chunk of gum. It smells exactly like spearmint and herbs. From the smell I am not a fan…but I have yet to try it out!

Now time to get into what was in the Bella Fruta gift box!

First up!

The Comorter Bubble Bar, my favorite Lush product! 

It has a sweet smell to it, almost like a mix of berries and cotton candy. It honestly smells good enough to eat, I’m not sure if their products are safe to eat so I will hold back from devouring it. This bubble bar makes the bathtub so relaxing. It will also make your skin so soft. And the pretty pink/purple bath water is so pretty to look at and relax in. It comes in the smaller chunk in the Bella Fruta gift box.

I used half of this bar in my bath last night along with a small chunk of the Mango bath melt you’ll see in a minute and here is my beautiful bath water:

Isn’t that soooo pretty. And here is the bath melt I used with the Comforter Bar to have myself a relaxing, warm bath cocktail.


You’ve Been Mangoed. They name their products with such brilliant names, I love it. This is a lemongrass and mango bath melt. A bath melt is pretty much loaded with butters and moisturizers to condition and moisturize the skin. The smell of this melt is more citrus smelling and less mango smelling. My skin however didn’t care what the scent was, it made my skin so soft and moisturized.

Miranda. This is the fruit salad of soaps, it smells like kiwi and oranges. Those small black specks in the soap are actually kiwi seeds, used for exfoliation. I haven’t used this soap yet but I am excited to try! I love the color of it, a pale green with some yellow tints to it.

Strawberry Feels Forever. This is a massage bar, it smells like strawberries (obviously), coconut and a hint of flowers (maybe). This is meant to be used on dry skin but it also can be used after you take a shower or a bath on damp skin.  I haven’t used this yet but I cannot wait to give it a try!

Avobath Bath Bomb. I love avocados, which is what drew me to this. Also, the pastel green color is beautiful. It is made with avocados and olive oil, to make your skin soft and smooth. This bath bomb is said to be uplifting and should be used when you need a wake up call. It smells like lemongrass, and earthy citrus. This bath bomb I will definitely be breaking in half and getting two uses out of it because it is pretty big.

Sympathy For The Skin. This is the smaller container because it came in the Bella Fruta gift box. This is a creamy, banana custard body lotion to give you soft skin. I have never tried Lush’s lotions, I did try this last night after my bath. It is made with real mashed organic bananas. It smells amazing like a mix of bananas and vanilla (the vanilla smells slightly over powers the banana), and it made my skin so moisturized and I smelled so good all night. It has the perfect texture for a lotion- soft and creamy. I like that a little goes a long way as well, I put it all over myself last night and I didn’t even put a dent into the container.

I think the packaging for their lotions and sugar scrubs are so cute!

So that wraps up my second Lush purchase but my first Lush online order!

Sephora Purchases!

I have been stalking Sephora for good sales. I received two gift cards for Christmas for Sephora from my Dad. I went to the closest Sephora to me and of course- they were all sold out of everything…probably because it was around Christmas time. So I decided to just hold on to them, and continue to hold on to them until I forgot I had them (I know, I know…how could I?!). Then I decided to quit sitting around holding onto gift cards and to spend them, so I got on to Sephora and spent every last penny on those gift cards and I figured I would show you what I got!

I am not going to review the products I bought because I haven’t used most of them before but feel free to ask me to do a review on something. Right now I am simply going to just show the products and make some comments about them!

(I am not posting this to brag, I am posting to show what I got in case someone would like a review on a product or if anyone would like to tell me that they have used a product I bought and how they liked it.)

So here is what I ordered:

IMG_9635

-Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube

-Too Faced 5 Star Favorites

-Benefit Cosmetics The Real Steal

-Luxe Affairs Sample Bag

-Benefits Cosmetics Pretty Parfait

-Dolce & Gabbana The One For Me (sample)

-Philosophy Live Joyously (sample)

-Lacoste (sample)

IMG_9626

This is Benefits Pretty Parfait! The packaging is super cute, it’s a tin in the shape of a little bakery/sweets shop. Inside of the tin is:

0.3 oz They’re real! mascara
– 0.4 oz Benetint rose-tinted lip & cheek stain
– 0.25 oz Deluxe sample of the POREfessional primer
– 0.05 oz Mini Laugh with me LeeLee fragrance

IMG_9630

And of course, it’s in the collectible tin. The reason I picked this was because I really wanted the Benetint and buying this whole tin was cheaper than buying just the Benetint alone.

IMG_9624

Here is the next item I picked out– Too Faced 5 Star Favorites. Which includes:

– 0.17 oz Better Than Sex Mascara
– 0.17 oz Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
– 0.03 oz Perfect Eyes Eye Liner (black) 

IMG_9625

Let me just say- I used all three of these within 10 minutes of opening the package from Sephora and I am so in love. Obviously it’s true that you get what you pay for.

IMG_9621

Here is the next item I ordered, The Real Steal. Which includes:

– 0.3 oz Full-size They’re Real! Mascara
– 0.01 oz Mini They’re Real! Push-Up Liner
– 0.05 oz They’re Real! Remover sample packet 

IMG_9622

I can’t wait to try out the liquid liner with this set, it does seem like it would be hard for me to apply…but you never know!

IMG_9623

I also got an Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, I have used this product a million times and I swear by it. Mine just ran out two days ago, so I needed to get another one. I have a couple of other brands of eyeshadow primer, so maybe I will do a compare review on all of them!  If anyone is interested?

IMG_9620

This is the Luxe Affairs sample bag. Inside this bag there are mini samples of these fragrances:

-Viktor & Rolf, Flowerbomb

-Dolce & Gabbana, Dolce

-Tom Ford, Velvet Orchid

-Gucci, Flora by Gucci-Gorgeous Gardenia

-Balenciaga, B.

-Cartier, Baiser Vole Lys Rose

-Viktor & Rolf, Spicebomb (For Him)

–Gucci, Made to Measure (For Him)

They came in a cute mini drawstring bag!

Then the last thing I got was three samples of other fragrances.

IMG_9617

(sorry-I could not, for the life of me, get the photo to turn the correct way!)

-Lacoste, NOIR Pour Homm

-Dolce & Gabbana, The One For Me

-Philosophy, Live Joyously

So there you have it, my Sephora purchases. I always like to see what other people buy, so I can get ideas or see future reviews on products I might like to pick up! Let me know in the comments if you have any of these products and what you think about them, or if you want me to review any of the products shown 🙂

Thank you all for taking the time to read my post! I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

ELF Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliner. My best friend, and my worst enemy. First of all, it took me months to find one that I was comfortable using. Yes, comfortable. Some were awkward to hold, some were bulky, some were too runny, some were too crayon-like. Second of all, my favorite ended up being one that is $1 a bottle. Now that’s what I call a steal of a deal!

Bargain shopping for liquid eyeliner accidentally. Yessss!

And here she is

IMG_9406

…what a beauty.

I know everyone has their opinions on products and some products work well for others and some don’t. This product however saved me a lifetime of buying expensive liquid liners and testing them out to hate them. I will go through my likes and dislikes of this product.

After buying and trying out over 10+ liquid liners, the ELF Liquid Eyeliner was the winner for me.

Likes
– this eyeliner is cheap, it’s $1!
– you have full control of the brush and the amount of liner on it
– the brush makes it easy to apply and make smooth lines
– it’s small and easy to hold, the applicator isn’t bulky or in the way
-they don’t test on animals

Dislikes
– each brush is slightly different
– you can’t get all of the product out of the bottle easily (but still, it’s only $1)

IMG_9413-0

The brush “wand”, that’s what I’m calling it, is so easy to hold and gives you great control because it’s slim and not bulky. It is so easy to create smooth lines because you have complete control and you also control how much liner is on the brush. I had a very bad experience with eyeliner that is in a squeeze tube, my entire eyeball was black and my vision was blurred. I have also had bad luck with the pen liquid liners, all those have done for me is either cut my eyelid or made my eyelid raw from rubbing it on it.

Here are a few pictures of my eye with the ELF liquid liner on it:

IMG_9415

One of the only issues I had with the liner was that after my first bottle ran out (and I acted like the world was ending), I went and got another bottle. This time, the brush was slightly different almost like it had more bristles and the end wasn’t to a point. It was more flat and squared off which made it extremely difficult to apply. I tested it out and bought five of the eyeliners and most of the brushes had the same shape but they aren’t 100% the same. So there is my only warning!

I definitely recommend this product to friends (really anyone that will actually listen to me rave about it because I almost cried when I finally found a liquid liner that didn’t give me problems). I have always heard that the best beauty products are the most expensive and I have learned that that is not always the case.

Buy it. Try it, and let me know your experience with it!

This product is definitely a 4.5 star product.
