Before I start, yes yes I know about the whole Jeffree Star scandal that exploded recently. I have chosen to stay away from his brand before, because I can't really stand him. But then a friend of mine gave me this as a birthday present, and I'm not hating it. It's a really cool colour!
You can't tell me what to do! It's my lips and I make out if I want to!
First of, this colour is divine! That cool, weird, greyish purple. Yum.
Second, that doe foot is really easy to use. I do prefer a lip brush to get precise and sharp edges, but the doe foot works in a pinch
Third, the claim. "Our liquid lipstick goes on opaque, dries completely matte and stays on for hours!" Mjeh. My friend, who is obsessed with the velour lipstick, was a bit disappointed by the forumula on this. It does go on opaque, after a whiiiile it dries down and becomes matte. But it takes a while. And it does not stay on for hours. Acutally, it doesnt stay on very well at all, for being a liquid matte lipstick. It works more like an ordinary lipstick in that sense. It transfers and smudges.

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.
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.
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.
