LUSTING OVER LUSH

The appeal of Lush is clear: deliciously scented beauty products bearing the natural, fresh stamp of approval. I’ve been an avid follower of Lush for years – first being introduced through what was probably an ancient video of either Zoe’s or Rhiannon’s, though I can’t remember which. They’re well known for their bath products: luscious bath bombs, bubble bars, and various soaps and gels that will leave you feeling like a beautiful fairy princess, though today I thought I’d talk about a few products that don’t get as much hype.

THE NO-FUSS CLEANSER

Upon my arrival in London I was plagued with a serious issue: bone-dry skin. My face dried up like a prune à la Spongebob’s waaaaaater crisis and I was seriously troubled. After binge reading a million of Anna’s (of ViviannaDoesMakeup) blog posts, I finally found a worthy solution. Or at least what I had hoped would be a solution. (more…)

2.11 DRUGSTORE HAUL

It sounds dumb to say aloud, but damn, do I love Walgreens. I made a little trip today to pick up essentials that’ll get me through the rest of the semester (and the rest of college – what is my life?!) and ended up spending a little too much time in the beauty aisle. It’s okay, though! I realized I haven’t done a drugstore haul in a long while because nothing there has excited me all that much, but today I found some things I’m really looking forward to trying.

BATTLE OF THE LIQUID LINERS

As an avid lover of the feline flick, I am very picky when it comes to eyeliner. The brush, the handle, the line, it all makes eons of difference in my wings, and ultimately, my life. I’ve tried and tested many a liquid liner, and I think I have a pretty great lineup to share with you. So here you have it: the liquid liner breakdown. (more…)
