Autumn Offerings from The Body Shop

Autumn Offerings from The Body Shop

I’ll never tire of new releases, especially when there’s a seasonal shift in the air. I was lucky enough to be sent a whole host of new goodies by The Body Shop so I’ve been like a kid with crayons painting everything on myself with glee. Here’s the lowdown! First...
SUQQU Nuancing Glow Powder: The Powder you need to know about

SUQQU Nuancing Glow Powder: The Powder you need to know about

If I have an inkling that any powder exists that promises a glow, I’m all over it like white on rice. As you may have seen from last week, I’m back in love with my Guerlain Meteorites but that’s a final step in my makeup routine and isn’t strong enough...
Autumn Reds

Autumn Reds

A few show-stopping Autumnal reds today, the type of deep, sultry, red wine shades to make the transition in Autumn seamless. There’s something about the dark nights, wrapped up in a new coat, with a beautiful scarf, all in really rich colours, that just looks so lovely with a really...
How much time do you dedicate to blogging?

How much time do you dedicate to blogging?

Blogging is like every other hobby in life, you can dedicate as little or as much time as you fancy and still get great enjoyment from it. I’ve been blogging solidly for 2 1/2 years and there’s times when I’ve been pretty prolific in terms of getting ahead of myself...
Skin Wars - What are you Tackling?

Skin Wars – What are you Tackling?

My skin is a bit all over the place after pregnancy so trying to find the right concoction of products to look after it is a little tricky. At the moment I’m trying to give my skin some much needed hydration, make it look a little more alive as I’m...
NARS Brow Gel

NARS Brow Gel

I spent my early teenage years with what can only be described as an epic unibrow. I therefore hated my eyebrows through those formative years and their furious unbridled growth despite my best efforts. I managed to pluck them into the most horrific unflattering thin excuses for brows over those...
Golden Brown

Golden Brown

Autumn is starting to peak through the clouds and therefore I’m in a bit of a brown mood and craving strong earthy shades. So with that in mind I had a route through my stash and found some lovely products with a distinctly Autumnal feel. First up is the brand...
Guerlain Meteorites Spring Blossom 2014 - The Ultimate Highlighting Powder

Guerlain Meteorites Spring Blossom 2014 – The Ultimate Highlighting Powder

I’ve always spoken of the undeniable beauty of Guerlain Meteorites but it’s been a few years since I had the perles in my possession as I’ve been using the pressed version for the past year or so and deviating to new illuminating powders now and again. But it was high...
Let's talk Mascaras - The Good, The Bad and The 'Meh'

Let’s talk Mascaras – The Good, The Bad and The ‘Meh’

There are a few beauty products I always find frustrating at the best of times, namely base products as they’re such a personal thing depending on your skin type, but apart from that it’s bloomin’ mascaras. For every good mascara I’ve tried over the years there has been a whole...
Cindy-Lou Manizer

Cindy-Lou Manizer

I’ll never tire of any sort of highlighter or illuminating powder so something pretty from The Balm was always on the cards for me. Mary-Lou Manizer always looks beautiful in any reviews I’ve seen but when I saw the pink prettiness of Cindy I have to say it won my...
Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed

Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed

You never appreciate what your makeup can do until you really, really need it and parenthood brings around the sort of zombie stupor that’s given me ample opportunity to really test my makeup hard! So whatever you’re knackered from, whether it’s work, night’s out or those elusive times when you...
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

I have to say, I love having great looking nails but I have no patience with them. As soon as I paint them, I’m itching and trying to do stuff even when they aren’t dry and I’m also quite rough with my nails so I never get more than a...

lush santa's lip scrub and lush santa baby lip tint

Yes I KNOW it’s October but really that’s only 13 weeks away from you know what and when you factor in the saving and spending involved, it’s good to talk about things early. So that’s takes me to this wee duo I was kind enough to receive at the recent Christmas Lush event and which I thought were far too bright and perky to save for another couple of months. To me, little items like these together are a perfect gift for a girl who loves her makeup and are a little extra special than just buying a regular coloured balm for a mate or loved one. Together, these are the perfect pair and here’s why.

santa's scrub and santa baby lush

I’ve spoken of my love of the lip scrubs before and this one has everything a girl could want. It’s sugary to exfoliate your lips to perfection, it’s the perfect Christmas red, it’s full of edible mini hearts and it smells like cola bottles. SOLD! Now of course you could make your own lip scrub if you want but as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone, I think this little jar would easily put a smile on someone’s face, it definitely did with me. And it’s full of all manners of niceness for your lips including cherries, dates, coconut and lime oil.

santa's lip scrub lush

Next to the big bright punch from it’s sister lip gloss, Santa Baby. This tiny tin may not look unassuming but trust me, there’s a whole lot of colour going on inside. This matches it’s sister scrub perfectly, with a highly pigmented lip tint packed with fair trade shea butter, cocoa butter and rosehip oil. The colour is a bright pink/red that was really easily applied with just my fingers and it stays put without feeling drying or uncomfortable on the lips. In short, a great little tint to have in your handbag and it’ll last really well on the lips and look after them at the same time!

If you’re interested in trying either, they’re available from Lush now, although unfortunately I don’t have the €€ prices to hand but neither is going to break the bank as the  sterling prices are £.5.50 for both!

So girls, would either of these tempt you either for yourself or as a cute little gift?

      Haha loads of goodies in there waiting for you!

  • http://polishedandprimed.com/ Stephanie (polishedandprimed.c

    Hearing lots of people raving about that santa scrub. The hearts look nearly too cute to use though!

      They nearly are, but they’re tasty too:)

  • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

    Great hope you like them!

  • http://www.heysarahlee.com/ Sarah Lee

    That Santa Baby lip tint looks an awful lot like “It Started With a Kiss” repackaged!… but I may have to investigate this further and purchase both those items, all in the name of research, of course ^_~

    • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

      It started with a kiss is still on sale so don’t think it’s a repackage but next time in Lush I’ll swatch them side by side to get a better look!

  • Aoife Valentine

    Awh, the little hearts are so cute. I’ve never tried any of the make up stuff from Lush, must give it a look!

    • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

      Their face powder is beautiful, one of my all time favs!

  • Ah Sure Tis Lovely

    So cute, I would try more Lush stuff but they are only in Dublin and Cork and last time I checked their delivery prices were ridiculous.

    • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

      Ah that’s a pity, if there’s ever anything you want I can organise with you and post them down!

  • Megan Daly

    Wow this is awesome, I really want to try this out now!!

    • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

      Great Megan glad I tempted you:)
