Last week I placed two orders; one with Lush and the other with Lipstick Republic.
I recently purchased a Beauty Blender sponge from Lipstick Republic and kicked myself afterwards for not getting the pack with the cleanser in it as well. I assumed I could just use my shampoo to clean it like I do with all my other brushes but it just didn't quite get all the foundation out. I'll be reviewing this cleanser properly soon but let's just say its fantastic.
While I was browsing the site I also decided to pick up a Saucebox single eyeshadow in Caramella. I'd heard people rave about their palettes but wanted to try the formula for myself and for only $6 it was a bargain. I probably won't do a full review on this eyeshadow but I will say that is incredibly pigmented and soft with hardly any fall out. Love it.
The lovely Michelle from Lipstick Republic also threw in a couple of NYX eyeliners for me as a freebie so I was pretty happy about that. As always the products were all packaged up in bubblewrap, black tissue paper with a gorgeous pink ribbon around it. Customer service from Lipstick Republic is always amazing and is the main reason why I continue to shop there and not other places. It's the little things that count.
I've only recently really started to get into Lush products. Mainly because there was no Lush store when I lived in the Northern Territory. There is only one Lush shop that I know of in South Australia and it's right in the city which can be a bit of a pain to get to so I placed my order online.
I purchased the limited edition perfume - "Creamy Candy" a Dreamtime Bath Melt and a Bath Ballistic "Phoenix Rising". The night I received this package I went straight home, drew a warm bath and popped in Pheonix Rising. It's a beautiful dark purple colour and it probably smells divine. The truth is I was so relaxed I can barely remember - I do know my skin felt moisturised after, so much so that I skipped putting on moisturiser! I also had an amazing sleep.
Creamy Candy is a limited edition perfume and smells incredibly sweet (obv) I love sweet perfumes but this one is going to take some time to get used to as it is quite strong and does last a long time on. The bottle was a lot smaller than what I imagined for $30 I was imagining a 50ml bottle I guess but that's my fault for not looking. This doesn't have a size on it but I would estimate it at around 25-30mls.
Overall I'm happy with my little Lush haul - the products all smell divine and are great for a treat at the end of a stressful cold winter's day!
