LUSH Easter 2012 Collection (Blogger Event)

This past Sunday I went to an event at the LUSH at Universal Citywalk to check out their new Easter products. It was cool to see demos of each product and I definitely want to pick a few up! These products are already on the LUSH website, so check them out here!

LUSH Carrot Top Bubble Bar

Carrot Top Bubble Bar, $7.95: This lemon and buchu scented bubble bar is an awesome product because you can use it for up to 10 baths. The bubble bar actually looks like a carrot. Just hold it by the green corn husk top and swish it around in your bath.

LUSH Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb

Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb, $6.95: The Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb is one of my favorites- it is a sickeningly sweet scent, my favorite! This one smells like the discontinued Candy Fluff dusting powder. It’s described as a vanilla ice cream cone that fell into a cotton candy machine! I love this one, and I definitely have to pick it up.

LUSH The Immaculate Eggception- Pink

The Immaculate Eggception- Pink,  $12.95: This is an awesome bath bomb that you can crack in half and has a cute little chick inside! This one is a little expensive, but it can be easily used for at least 3 baths. It is scented with ylang ylang, grapefruit, and vanilla. This was my favorite of the two.

LUSH The Immaculate Eggception-Yellow

The Immaculate Eggception-Yellow, $12.95: This is the same one as the one I just mentioned, but it has a cute rabbit inside instead of a chick. It is scented the same as the pink one, but in my opinion it smells a little bit more citrusy.

LUSH Bunny Knot Wrap

 Bunny Knot Wrap, $5.95

LUSH Chick Knot Wrap

Chick Knot Wrap, $4.95

Lippy Girl Makeup Review

I was sent this awesome package by Darcey Diehl, owner of Lippy Girl Makeup. Lippy Girl is a line of lipsticks and blushes that are natural, organic, and paraben free. I think this is an awesome line with a lot of potential! I got 3 lipsticks and 2 blushes! If you want to purchase in the U.S., use this site.

The lipsticks are: Sassy Ass, Very Vixen, and Homewrecker. The blushes are: Wall Flower and Bitch Slap. The packaging is matte black and very cute.

First off, the lipsticks. These colors are pretty standard in makeup, but I think the fact that they are natural makes them unique. I really wish they had a bright orange though (Hey Darcey, don’t you just want to make a color named Olivia’s Orange? 😉 )! I find these lipsticks to be really sheer, but still build-able.  I swatched these on completely dry lips.

Lippy Girl Lipstick in Sassy Ass
Lippy Girl Lipstick in Very Vixen
Lippy Girl Lipstick in Homewrecker

These are all some very pretty shades, but I think my favorite is Homewrecker because it is the most unique to my collection!

Now, onto the blushes. The shades I got were Wall Flower and Bitchslap. These are 2 very different blushes! Wall Flower is super light and takes a few tries to make it visible on your cheeks, but Bitchslap is extremely bold and shows up immediately, and it is very easy for it to get too pigmented.

Lippy Girl Blush in Bitch Slap and Wall Flower

The only issue I had was that my lipstick in Sassy Ass broke. I don’t know if it was my fault, though! You can also take off the bottom part of the packaging, which is different for me, but it doesn’t really bother me.

Overall I am really impressed, I think that everything wears as usual for lipstick and blush, so no complaints here. I would definitely recommend them if you are able to get your hands on their stuff. Also, check out this video I filmed about this line!
