Jump ahead to read more about Lush UK Valentine’s Day 2009.
I’ve already discussed the Lush NA Valentine’s Day releases and although they looked lovely I had decided I really didn’t any of it. I did think that Lush UK would stick to the same round up but noooooooo they had to go and do some items that are exclusive to their side of the pond that I’m so lemming now!
Lately the release after release of B fragrances in Lush soap format is absolutely thrilling to me. First Cocktail, followed by Keep It Fluffy, and now beautiful Love! Oh love, sweet love!
Love is one of my favorite scents from B Never so I’m thrilled they made it into a soap! Yay!
If you love girlish scents you’ll really enjoy a heart shaped, limited edition Mmmmm Melting Marshmallow Moments! Softens up your bath water and offers extra moisturizing and beautiful scent. Gather up a SWALK and spoil yourself!
Taking it’s newest Bath Bomb, Vanilla Fountain, and making it into a fragrant massage bar is a clever idea to say the least! Heavanilli Massage Bar is sure to please the vanilla lovers out there!
Lush UK ships worldwide so if you’re wanting to cure that lemming you can order now at www.lush.co.uk

Prescriptives made a wise choice dubbing it’s new primer “Flawless Face” as it indeed delivers on the promise of a flawless face.
The Muse has been burnt by primers before and particularly isn’t a fond fan of Smashbox Photofinish. Can you say itchy and acne? Ack! I normally chalk up almost all primers and compare them to Smashbox Photofinish which makes me generally wary of attempting to test any out but I’m sure glad I said yes to Prescriptives Flalwess Face Primer as indeed it’s a great find!
I don’t need a primer to cover lines or pores but I do need one to help keep my foundation fresh, aid my foundation to apply easily, and allow my foundation to look flawless when on. Prescriptives Flawless Face Primer does all three quite successfully!
I hate silicon based primers since they tend to pill on my face and also cause me to itch and break out. Pilling, if you’re not familiar with the word, is an effect of product coming off the skin in little rolls and clumps that resembles skin…yuk! Eye creams are legendary for pilling and primers in my case as well. Prescriptives does have a bit of silicon feel to it’s formula but it manages to feel moisturizing when applied and does not pill. This is oil free so it absorbs easily without leaving behind a greasy feeling or causing itching and acne later on!
The primer gives skin a smooth, even texture to allow foundation to apply easily and seamlessly while making it last longer. It’s quite thick so it should work quite well at filling pores, fine lines, and other problem areas you might have. For me it’s a combination product as it acts as a primer but also illuminates my face due to it’s pearl like finish. I really like this one and I imagine I’ll repurchase it once I’m done.
Overall, the product allows my foundation to glide on easily, keeps my foundation fresh for 2 to 3 hours longer than usual, and allows my face to look flawless and perfect so indeed it keeps many of the promises it makes.
Who should try it?
- Anyone will large pores, fine lines, or imperfections that need extra prepping prior to foundation use.
- Those who desire a flawless, even complexion.
- Anyone who wants their foundation to look and stay fresh for hours on end.
Prescriptives Flawless Face Primer is $27.50 USD and available now from www.prescriptives.com

Avon Hollywood Lights Lip Gloss caught my eye recently.

Avon Hollywood Lights Lip Gloss brings it all to the table with it’s slick built in mirror and light up wand for quickie touch ups in the dark!
Available in four shades at a price of $7.99 USD mmm I think I can afford to nab one or two try it out for size!
