Retro Lush Is Here!

Lush Cosmetics has a special knack for discontinuing some of my very favorite products. Lush normally runs through items that aren’t selling well at year’s end and they end up axing them and putting out a fresh new line in the place of some old favorites.

Most Lush addicts fail to understand they mystery of the dreaded discontinue list as many of the items seem to be selling great so why stop making them? No items are immune when it comes time to chop the line up and do away with the old and bring in the new! Bad news for Lush lovers everywhere when that happens!

But I do have good news! Phew!

Lush UK has been running something called Retro Lush for the past few months now which brings back old favorites. This first began as a series of races and those items ordered enough from the site would be made up and brought back for purchase. Soon after these “races” they decided to just bring back all the old favorites and sell them as regular items! Yay! The Muse did indulge in ordering from Lush UK and stashing away large quantities of bath bombs, shampoo, and other yummie items!

But the good news is if you fear the scary airmail prices from UK to US you can now get Retro Lush from the Lush US site! Wahoo!

Do click on over to begin the shopping frenzy!

If you need help making your selections from Retro Lush or you’d just like further information my comment box is open!

I lurve me some Lush and have tried everything in the store!

Happy Shopping!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Have you tried the Honey Beehave powder? I’ve never heard of it, but it sounds intriguing. I do love Silky Underwear Dusting Powder.

    *starts the chant* 17 Cherry Tree Ln, 17 Cherry Tree Ln…

    Seriously, Lush NEEDS to bring that back for Retro Lush. I was able to snag a small slice of it from my local Lush after I raved how much I loved it and missed it. It made me a happy girl XD

    Oooohhhh Lush Lush Lush!! I love Lush my whole bathroom is full with it, to bad I don't have a bathtub! Some RetroLush items are gorgeous, like Marzibain (I took some to a Fancy hotel) and Hollywood. I really love Narcotick too the scent isn't that good but it's amazing what it does to my skin!!! Since I'm living in The Netherlands I order from the UK.

    Love Lush! <3

    Lucky you!!! Lush Spain seems to hate their customers 🙁

    But this week in London I’m going to put my hands on the new emotibombs, tab pills and all the new stuff!!! Will tell you about it when I’m back!

    I wish they’d come back to SG. These look so yummy…and very you in their whimsical flair! 🙂

    hey mandy!

    Yup. Skip. Smells like cat pee in my humblest. Love SU myself but Honey Bee not so much! I have a jar if you want it. I only sprinkled a tiny amount out. Let me know 😛

    blah! But if you do take it remember you won’t be coming to bed with me after you use.

    Smelly! lol!

    hi mc!

    lol!!!!!!! I love 17CTL myself 🙂 Sigh! I have the perfume 🙂 Sakura anyway which smells the same. Lush made it as an exclusive forum perfume about a year ago 😉

    Also I have the shower gel, rub rub rub which smells like it 😉

    Sakura bath bomb smells like this too so at least it’s not all gone. Would you like a small sample bottle of rub rub rub? Let m eknow!

    It was beautiful! I agree.

  • the Muse

    Maripan is my fav..mmy snow cake perfection!

    Narcotick is a bit too herbal for me and woodsy but I do love freeze, b4b, happy hippy, etc..the shower gels are yum!

    Can’t remember name of the product, but it’s a bar of shampoo, that keeps hair very dark and extremely shiny.. And I’m desperate for them to bring it back…. Its the best ever. But I can’t even find any history of it online.
