For The Love of Lush

It's quite rare that I dedicate a whole post to one product, but I think that this particular item deserves a lot of love. It's quite a humble little lippy, it doesn't ask for much, just to be given a chance. Anyway, before we get into it, here's a little back story. 

Lush launched their makeup range back in Summer 2012 and I think that it deserves a lot more attention than it currently gets. It seems to be quite under the radar. To be completely honest I can see why, the prices are similar to Mac and some of the products look a bit out there, but there are some real gems that are so worth the price tag.

I attended a blogger meetup back in June, part of the day was a lock-in kinda tour around Lush in Birmingham city centre. Already being an avid lover of the bath bombs, skin care etc, I really wanted to learn more about the makeup that they have to offer. The lovely Lush lady Claire chatted about each product and explained the purpose of them, she pointed out that a lot of them are multi use, which I thought was pretty cool. I'm not usually one to buy into the whole lip and cheek thing, however these are amazing, I'd wear it on my whole face if I could. 

Right, let's get back on track. This is why I don't tend to do these kind of posts, I'm such a waffler! I'm going to try to say this without sounding like a total creep. When I walked into Lush I noticed Claire's incredible lip colour, so after all of the introductions were done I immediately made a beeline for her. She told me that it was their lipstick in Perspective, it was in my basket within seconds. A couple of the other girls picked it up too, we were all in awe of it. 

It is a gorgeous rosy pink shade that's just perfect for everyday. The thing that I love most about it is it's versatility. If you give your lips a quick swipe and pat it in, it creates a really enhanced natural matte lip. However, do a couple of slicks and you'll be lookin' glossy. Like the others in the range, you can also use it as a blusher and eyeshadow. I think I'll be sticking to lips and cheeks for now though. The formula is so smooth and long-lasting, it's a real treat to wear. I really love the packaging too, it's quite compact so it's perfect for your handbag. It doesn't look like your average lipstick from the outside, don't worry though, it just has the standard doe foot applicator so a super speedy and precise application. I'm not going to get into ingredients because lets face it, who cares, but they contain jojoba oil which keeps you lips hydrated through it's wear. 

I don't really buy into the whole makeup to match your mood thing, that's aside trust me, these are good quality products that truly have captured my heart!

It can be purchased in store or on for £14.50.
