Things I Love Thursdays | Lush Cosmetics

T.I.L.T.! I feel like there should be a day of the week to celebrate my favorite things! Like Oprah, only there won’t be any free giveaways. But anyway, let’s carry on…

This past weekend, LUSH Cosmetics launched their “Emotional Brilliance” collection. Essentially, they have several new eyeliners, liquid lipsticks, liquid eyeshadow, etc. in colors named by emotion. They had a “color game” where one chooses a color on a wheel, based purely on which three stand out first. The “emotions” my mind chose were Ambition, Calm and Feeling Secure (very accurate!). After the color game, my friend Ciarra and I tested the different eyeliners, eyeshadows and lipsticks. You can play the same “emotional” color choice game here. Since I’m so fair-skinned, bright colors look absolutely crazy on me, but I ended up bringing home some Motivation (but not enough to sit down and study rather than watch too many episodes of Lost– maybe I should have brought home two bottles).

I have a love/hate relationship with Lush. I love their products, but I hate that I practically go broke every time I go in there (serious exaggeration, but my wallet would sincerely appreciate it if I just stayed away).

LUSH masks are also absolutely amazing. I have been using Cosmetic Warrior— I don’t love the way it smells, but it does wonderful things for my skin. Catastrophe Cosmetic is another favorite, and I picked up Cupcake over the weekend. I would make other recommendations, but my best suggestion would be to read the descriptions and decide which of these is best for your skin type.

The environmentality of Lush is also a plus– bring in five plastic containers (either from masks, body wash/scrubs, etc.) and you get a free mask. All of their products are natural/organic, and a majority of them are “vegan-safe.” I am not even close to a vegan, but appreciate the non-animal testing, all-natural, tree-hugger mindset of the Lush corporation.

The Mary Kay consultant in me is cringing at the fact that I’m blatently promoting other skin care products, (and I 100% believe in MK products, or I wouldn’t share them :)) but I believe the Lush is a whole other brand/product and I love it.

Do you have any favorite skin care products? Any other Lush-lovers out there? Feel free to comment below!
