Frugal Gourmeting with the Lush Brightside Bubble Bar

Lush Bright Side Bubble Bar

I have friends who are horrified that I burn tarts or use $5-$8 bubble bars or bombs! Seriously, my friend Jamie can’t walk into Lush with without proclaiming how expensive the bombs and bubble bars are and wincing about how you’re only using them for one bath and how that bath is costing me anywhere between $5 to $10.

She also does the same thing when we go to Yankee Candle and tells me I’m burning money each time I melt a tart.

Oh woe.

I love her but I guess I don’t have the same mentality about beauty that she does as I consider the $8 bucks I spend on a Lush bath relaxing, comforting, and just a wonderful indulgence and money well spent. I work hard I deserve a little R&R under a mound of delicious scented moisturizing bubbles don’t I?

Well for friends like Jamie might I introduce you to the Lush Brightside Bubble Bar?

L’Oreal Collection Privee Review & Swatches

LOreal Collection Privee Colour Riche Lipsticks

Now that I finally reviewed all the shades in the L’Oreal Collection Privee Collection for you I thought I’d share some final thoughts!

As you know the L’Oreal Collection Privee is a selection of high end looking L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks (there’s also a Privee Nail Polish Collection available) that come housed in a matte black casing with gold accents. Each shade is inspired by the skin tone of a past or present L’Oreal model or brand ambassador. The shades a range of non traditional nudes for creating a natural lip look.

The celebrities included in the collection are Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, Jennifer Lopez, Julianne Moore, Doutzen Kroes, and Liya Kebede. This collection actually got an earlier launch in the UK but it’s now popping up here in drugstores. Unfortunately it is a limited edition launch so if you love these shades you’ll have to be sure to pick them up as soon as see them as they will likely disappear fast.
