Freak Out

This was a video makin attempt gone wrong. Couldnt see what I was doing, camera ran out of memory, daylight faded... And I wasnt really pleased with the result. The photos arent great either.
But it's better than nothing!

Lush Haul!

Damn you, Lush Kitchen. Damn you. You will steal all my money. And I dont have all that much!
A few years ago, I saw Vampy Varnish post about the Almond and Coconut Smoothie, and I needed it. But by then, it was no longer available in sweden nor the uk. I wrote to both uk and swedish Lush about it, but I was out of luck. It was no longer in their production.
And a few months ago, a friend of mine told me about Lush Kitchen.
And a few weeks ago, the Creamed Almond and Coconut Smoothie showed up in their Kitchen. And I pounced.
With a few other products.. I would have gone bananas, but you know.. Shit's expensive.

So here's my first Kitchen + Uk Lush order. I have another on the way, but thats another post.


First up:
Creamed Almond and Coconut Smoothie. 
What made me NEED this, is that I looooove their smoothies. They make you super soft, smell awesome and they are perfect for lazy people like me who cant be bother with lotions.
And that I love almonds, coconut and jasmin. 
The thing is though, I dont like the scent of vanilla. And this smells mostly like vanilla. 
But at least it's an earty and nutty vanilla scent, so its all good. I still like this, even though it doesnt smell exactly like I wanted it to. 





On to
Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair Shower Gel
I wasnt super excited about this, but since it contains my favorite scents, lavender and jasmin, and the fact that I am in love with Lushs shower gels, I threw this in the basket to. (And since I got dumped recently, the name called out to me too, huehuehue)
Fig and guava juice, with lavender, jasmin, ylang ylang and and rose petals, makes an ... unusual scent. Kind of fresh and uplifting, but at the same time all flowery and ... nice! Its more of an unisex scent, than a flowery sweet "womanly" (gaging at that word) scent. 
I really do like it! The colour is stunning too. Great for hot summer days. And some one actually told me I smelled awesome, and that it kind of smelled like Karma, but not really. I dont know how Karma smells, but my thumbs are up!




Last one
Twilight Bath bomb
To most lushies, this bath bomb isn't news. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Twilight Shower Gel. It's my all time favorit scent. And since I have a bath tub at my new place, this bath bomb was a must have.
It smells just like the shower gel. Lavender, heavy and sweet.
But I havent tried it yet. My bathroom smells so amazing with this bomb just waiting for a bath, so I havent dared to use it. Haha.
But pictures have told me that it looks beautiful in the bath. All pink to blue to purple and .. Yes.
Cant wait. I need to always are two in my home, one for a bath, and the second to always smell that awesome Twilight scent.

Doe-a-Love

First try with the Colourpop shadows! Used both fingers and brushes to apply, and it was super easy.
Kind of bummed that Erotic turns pink when applied lightly or blended. Oh well. It worked well with the look.

Swatch: Colourpop Super Shock Shadows - Puppy Love, I Heart This, Erotic, Doe-a-Deer

Finally got to try out some Colourpop stuff! To pick out a few items among all that awesome stuff was pure torture. I want so much more!!!

I tried to pick out stuff that I actually would use, rather than things I just wanted bcuz pretty. Or bright. I narrowed things down with thinking I 'needed' a  base color that could be used as a highlighter, something glittery, something smokey and something bright. Because ordering stuff från Colourpop without getting someting that POPS aint right, dawg. (Sorry, watching Fresh Prince while writing)
A quick swatch of the Lippie Stix "Bichette" is in this post too, I dont know how to write anything but "it's perfect" about it. It might get its own post.


Puppy Love


I Heart This




Erotic



Doe-a-Deer



First swatch with just one swipe and no primer (and Bichette)


Swatch over primer, several swipes with finger


Ok, thoughts..
First up, Puppy Love. I couldnt really catch it's pretty duochrome/sheen-ness. Peachy colour with a soft pink and cold sheen. "All proceeds from the sale of ‘Puppy Love’ will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society". This donating thing, with the paw on the lid and the perfect base color/highlight, it was no brainer that I had to get it. Sadly, it's not available any more.

And then then on to something glittery... And boy, Colourpop have some nice glittery ones. I thought I would by something that would be easily packed on it's on or on other shadows for a pop of sparkle. Enter, I Heart This. Described as "Cool-toned silvery taupe with multi-coloured glitter", this color is super perdy! Its like... cool and warm at the same time. KWAARM. (H5 if you get the reference) Lots of sparkle, all though the silver showes up a bit more.

Doe-a-Deer got to be the "something smokey" shadow. I thought it would bring out the green in my eyes in a smokey look, or just a simple crease colour that isnt black or brown. Described as a "blackened violet", I feel is more of a dark plum with a hint of a purple sheen. Gorgeous. 

And for the fun shadow. Erotic. This shadow makes me moan. It's described as a "Super neon candy apple red with sparkling pink and copper glitter" and I couldnt agree more. Super bright, super sparkly. Super erotic. Also, look at this close up swatch, is pure sex.

I havent played around with these shadow that much, therefore I havent really commented on the quality. If you are new to Colourpop, I can tell you that these shadows are not regular shadows. They are in this.. weird.. mousse-y gel formula. That turns into powder when used.
Cant wait to do some looks with them!

** Colourpop är ganska svårt att få tag i i Sverige då de inte fraktar utanför USA. Jag sambeställde med två andra, varav en av oss hade kontakter i USA som kunde beställa hem till sig och skicka vidare ut till Sverige. Annars går det att skaffa sådan där postbox av något slag. Är inte tillräckligt påläst för att vilja tipsa om något där. Googla!
