B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful Holiday Catalog Photos

B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful was the glamorous side of Lush Cosmetics. Old school Lush fans will take note that items from B Never’s catalog have popped up from time to time at Lush and most recently in the Gorilla Fragrance Collection.

I’ve loved B with all my heart and was really crushed when they closed shop.

Le Sigh…!

I was cleaning out my makeup closet recently for Fall and I came across one of B Never’s old Holiday Catalogs and I really wanted to share it with you so I took a ton of pictures but damn I need to do this one in two parts.

So do jump ahead to enjoy some of what B Never offered us!

Jump!

As you can see B Never was alot more glamorous than Lush. The collection was very feminine and pretty, almost vintage-like. I really miss it. The thing I missed the most is Keep it Fluffy which was my very favorite B Never scent. Although Lush has been slowly releasing fragrances from B Never such as Dirty, B, etc…they never did bring back Keep It Fluffy as a perfume merely as a soap one Holiday season.

Keep your fingers crossed for me it comes back soon!

What do you think of B Never?

Do you remember B?

Do share!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I’ll be doing a part 2 very soon which includes some of B Never’s makeup offerings!

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.

    B Never was before I was aware of Lush etc., or I just never heard of it at the time!

    BTW That “Two Hearts” line makes me think of the Doctor haha!

      • theRothstanator

        Just curious! : ) I thought that maybe it looked like it was from the late 90s or something.

          • Linda taylor

            Cocktail was/is my favourite. I still have a little tin of solid perfume and some shower jelly left .

  • Nicole

    I still have my love bubble bar OMG love that scent and the eyeshadows are soo smooth why did they do away with that line dam Lush

  • kstrina

    When I worked for Lush I won a contest and got $1000 of B never and loved it!! I was so sad when they closed.

      • kstrina

        brushes, eye shadows, makeup bag, perfume, so much….i just hated that the eye shadows expired so quick. I still have a few and the ones I trashed I kept the cute little boxes they came in! 🙂

        • the Muse

  • Cristi

    I wish they never did away with this line! It’s all so gorgeous… 🙁

    Since this was before the time I started getting into makeup, I never even had a chance to try it out. *pouts*

    They really should bring those eyeshadows back… I’d haul them SO hard, Lush wouldn’t even know what hit ’em! XD

    I discovered B while traveling in London many years ago and was amazed at the quality and diversity of the products. I was pinching pennies at the time and picked a few liquid liners, white, pale pink and red, to take home with me. As my supplies began to diminish I sought them out online but the 50$ shipping to the U.S. deterred me from purchasing, however I discovered there were two shoppes in Japan and I just happened to be heading there! The Japan shoppe was so tiny compared to the U.K. offering but I was ecstatic nonetheless. I replenished the red and white liners and then added gold, fuschia (sparkle), a pink and yellow blended eyeshadow pot, one of their gorgeous candles in an ornate cup and a few other goodies. My total came in just under 300USD and the shoppe girls spoiled me with a complimetary makeup box and makeup remover. I am so sad to hear they have gone out of business, I was just looking for their products this morning, having no idea they were gone. I hope they get resurrected someday, there has never been a makeup company as unique and amazing as B. I’ll be hoarding what gems of product I have left to wear at all the best parties!
    Thanks for taking the time to share the catalogue, brings back heady memories of the first time I ever stepped into a B store.

    To anyone still following this thread, LUSH has just released a makeup line, not as diverse or fancy as B Never but who knows what will come out of the LUSH kitchen next! Here’s a link to some of the new products via LUSH’s website (

      we know S, I posted about it a few times already, Emotional Brilliance 🙂

    Necro-posting:

    The LUSH Kitchen has a Keep It Fluffy bath bomb (and I believe Funny Face Fun bubble bar is the same scent, also available this week).

    I ordered a handful of items ages ago. Some of which I’m trying to decipher currently. A Two Hearts Beating As One bath bomb, which still had it’s tag. Because B Never didn’t believe in minimal packaging and it’s still in it’s little red mesh bag.

    The other (which brings me here though attempting to figure out refresh-my-memory-Google-search) is a little pink rose bud bubble bar that I think came in a pack of 3. Last of its kind. Sad.

    Me thinks I’ll have to message LUSH and play the “Name That Bubble Bar” again. (They figured out my Elixir bubble bar within a few hours/few different experts!)

      they also have celebrate shower gel and baby face cleanser (ordered 6 of them haha). oh gosh the little 3 pack of bubble bars I remember it could have been cocktail but don’t quote me 😀 tweet them! they’ll help 😀
