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.
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.
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?
