September Favourites ’17

I’m currently on holiday when this post will go live on my blog and although I’ve only really been in the UK for just over 2 weeks for the month of September, I can still write what products I loved throughout that time… Right? 😛

I do apologise for poor image quality… I took this the night before we left and was rushing to get so much done. 😦

  • Garnier PureActive Intensive 3in1 Charcoal Anti-Blackhead.

This is a product I bought on a whim. I love any facial cleansing products that contain charcoal, as it’s great for oily skin and can really help pull any crap out of your pores. As the title suggests this is a 3in1 product which means you can use it as a facial wash, scrub and as a mask. This isn’t the BEST product in the world but it’s done some wonders for my skin so far! It’s not as scrubby as I was hoping it would be, but my skin has been having some sensitive days recently so this has really helped when I want to use a scrub but nothing too harsh. I definitely recommend giving this a go! I haven’t tried it as a mask to be honest, but it’s an amazing facial wash for sure.

  • Lush Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Tint.

This is my tube of Sugar Plum Fairy lip tint from last Christmas and it’s a lip product I randomly just started using again this month. I think with all the excitement of the Lush Creative Showcase and the Christmas goodies of 2017 being announced, it jogged my memory of this lip tint. It smells amazing, leaves a lovely magenta pink shade on my lips and moisturises at the same time! I’ll definitely be buying more Lush lip tints this year, including Black Rose for Halloween and Santa Baby for Christmas.

  • Paco Rabanne Lady Million EDP.

I’ve owned for a while and when I was first given it by my mom (it was originally a gift she had been given but didn’t like it, so gave it to me! :P) and at first I REALLY hated it, but after using it for a while I’ve grown to love it. The scent reminds me of Yankee Candle’s Fluffy Towels scent and I love it so much. I feel fresh and clean when I wear it and whilst ages ago I couldn’t wait to get rid of it, I now want to buy a new bottle as soon as it runs out. For ages it was my go to scent for work, which to be honest it was for the 2 weeks of September.

  • Mandarin Spa Amber Heaven Gentle Hand Wash.

My mom recently gave me this hand wash after noticing I was running low on hand wash in my bathroom. I had a back up ready to pop next to the sink, but how cute is that??? When I lived at home I would often use this hand wash if either me or my mom had bought any. I love the scent of this hand wash so much as it smells so posh! I can’t really describe how it smells to be honest… Sort of musky but a floral musk… If that makes sense? Even though I really like this hand wash at the moment, I do have a hate/love relationship with this stuff. Before now this hand wash has flared up my eczema and I don’t really know why. I has flared up slightly the past month BUT it hasn’t been as bad as it has been in the past.

  • Dove Pistachio and Magnolia Shower Foam.

Whilst I love this shower foam, I highly doubt I’ll be buying it again unless it’s on a special offer. I picked this up in Boots for £2.00 and even then I think this was expensive, FYI it’s usually £2.99. There are three different ones you can pick but I love pistachios so I had to pick this one. I have found that this softens my skin after use and will leave me smelling yummy for a while after use, but I just feel like you have to use loads of it to get a good lather going in a sponge or shower scrunch and that in itself is a con for me. This being said this was something new and fun to try and due to the scent I picked it’s also lovely to use as we go into the colder months. The pistachio has a lovely warming scent to it. As I said, when this is on offer again I’ll definitely pick one up!

So now my beauty favourites are done, time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month!

Favourite TV Show – American Horror Story.

First of all, I know I don’t usually include 2 images when talking about my non beauty favourites, but I had to for this. I just want to get this out there that 1. I have a new favourite actor – Evan Peters and 2. The way he acted when playing Tate in season 1 of AHS was amazing and beautiful. I love the first gif I attached but the second one, oh my! Whenever he cried in that season I just wanted to cry with him. He’s one of those actors who nails crying scenes perfectly and those are some of my favourite to watch. Due to studying acting (as well as writing scripts) I love when an actor can be emotional and he’s just perfect at it (and may I add a perfect human being? :P).

ANYWAY… American Horror Story! Me and Dane have heard loads of good things about this, including from his own parents and we’re a little late onto the AHS wagon but it’s better to be late than never at all, eh? We are currently halfway through season 2 and we are loving it. I loved season 1 so much and his parents both said it’s their favourite to date! I have a feeling it’ll be mine too. If you don’t know much about AHS, every season pretty much has the same actors/actresses but each season has a different story behind it. BUT they’re all supernatural themed. They’re currently all on Netflix so I recommend going to watch it if you haven’t already. To be honest I’m really excited to see more of Evan Peters acting. He’s amazing. :’)

Favourite Film – The Girl On The Train.

This was recently on Amazon Prime to watch and I had heard SO MUCH about both the book when it came out, as well as the film. I wanted to watch it in the cinema but Dane wasn’t keen for it at the time. I’m glad I waited to watch it in the comfort of our own home but bloody hell, it’s good! I haven’t read the book so I can’t compare that to the film but even if you haven’t read the book like myself then I recommend you give it a watch. It definitely reminded me of Gone Girl, but in a different way.

Favourite Book – Erm…

Yeah I’m shit. I haven’t been reading anything AGAIN! To be honest I’ve been saving all my reading for my holiday. I do have shit loads of reading to catch up on though. I have all the K-ON! manga to catch up on, as well as many other manga books. I also have normal books to read and intend on taking 2 Bridget Jones books with me on holiday (as you’ve probably guessed I’m writing this JUST before I go on holiday…) as well as some manga, but we shall see. I’m sure I’ll do a post about what books I took at some point.

Favourite Song/Album – Porter Robinson & Madeon – Shelter and Rihanna – Te Amo.

These are both songs I discovered this month and ones I know I’ll continue to listen to loads, especially during and even after my holiday. Shelter was brought to my attention by Dane who mentioned that someone had used an anime in their music video. It’s an amazing song and the anime music video that accompanies it is lovely and sad all the same.

As well as that I also discovered this Rihanna song thanks to a beauty video on Instagram. I didn’t know of this songs existence, even though it’s been around for just over 7 years now. Bloody hell! I know my usual music genre tastes are in rock music as well as some electronic but I do have a soft spot for Rihanna. She just writes some catchy as fuck tracks and this is one.

Favourite Game – Life Is Strange: Before The Storm.

I completed this game in a day (including unlocking all the specials in each level of the episode) and I loved it, but at the same time I’m unsure what to think right now. I will elaborate without giving away any spoilers! This is a prequel to Life Is Strange where you play as Chloe, sadly she doesn’t have Max’s power but she has her own speciality. In this game you get to find out what happens with Rachel including how her and Chloe become friends and what happens before Max comes into the picture and Rachel goes missing. You get to be a little more rebellious with Chloe than you ever could be with Max and whilst I like this, I do find that both Chloe and Rachel are bratty. I’m not the only one who thought this either. THIS BEING SAID I can’t really say they’re acting bratty when Chloe’s dad recently died and Rachel has some stuff going on herself, which you find out about somewhat in the first episode. Overall it was really fun to play and I already can’t wait for episode 2 to come out soon! I bought the limited edition bundle so that I can get the bonus Max level, as well as all the episodes for Before The Storm.

So those are my favourites from the 2 weeks I was in the UK in September! It went by really quick and I already can’t believe I’m going away in just a couple of days (as I write this) and I’ll be back in 3 days when this post goes live on my blog (FYI hello future Nat! :P)

What were your favourites throughout September? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time all, take care! I hope you’re all well, I miss all my lovely readers! :’)

Lush Halloween & Christmas 2017

Wow I can’t believe it. The Lush Creative Showcase has come and gone and I still regret not booking a ticket and going… Next time I will for sure!

It’s only September and Lush have not only announced what will be up for grabs this Halloween and Christmas, BUT they’ve released all the goodies online for us to buy NOW. Erm, what?!

I just want to get this out here that I am super pissed off about so many products that haven’t made a return. The main one being So White bath bomb, a bath bomb I have bought at least once every year since its release in 2009. FYI this was my favourite year for Lush Christmas as it had some of the best releases in my mind. Most of them are now shitty Lush Kitchen exclusives…

As well as that Lush hasn’t brought back Father Christmas bath bomb (Snow Fairy scented), Stardust bath bomb (was an amazing price and smelt amazing), Reindeer & Robin fun (cola scented), Santasaurus re-useable bubble bar (which I REALLY wanted to try last year and never got to!) and Peeping Santa bubble bar (strawberry scented). I’m sure there’s more I could think of as well! Either way I’m mostly disappointed that Yog Nog has COMPLETELY gone. What the fuck Lush?! :S Disappointed is not the word.

I also want to get this out there that I think Lush have REALLY put their prices up lately and it’s also very disappointing. Nearly £5.00 for a bath bomb?! For a few years now I’ve had a serious love/hate relationship with Lush and it’s usually due to their prices. I remember when I could walk into Lush and buy 2 bags of goodies for £30.00. Not those 2 bags would cost me near to £100.00. I seem to only really buy Lush when the Boxing Day sale hits, which is a shame. It really does say something about me… and I don’t care! If I can stock up on Lush products to last me the whole year then why the hell not?! I’ll be doing that again this year for sure.

ANYWAY! Instead of being gloomy about amazing Christmas exclusives that have come and gone, I wanted to share with you guys today about what I’m excited to pick up throughout the rest of the year from Lush!

Also! I will only be talking in depth about products that are new or ones that are coming back from the previous year(s) that I haven’t yet tried… So are technically still new to me! 😛

First I’ll start with Halloween products.

  • Monsters Ball bath bomb – £4.50 (link)

This little cutie is returning for a second year and due to not being able to try him last year, I’m really pleased for him to be back! He smells of lime Fruit Pastilles and come on, just look at him! He’s a little cutie, for a monster. I’ll definitely be buying a couple of him this year when I get back from holiday to try out. Lush seem to see lime scented things as their sort of Halloween signature fragrance, which to me isn’t very “spooky” but I’m not complaining! 😛

  • Bewitched bubble bar – £4.25 (link)

This is a newbie to the Halloween collection this year and one that I like the sound of! Alongside the lime scent, Lush always have something blackcurrant scented too. I’m not complaining! 😛 This bubble bar looks and sounds really nice so although it’s probably not one I’ll rush out and buy if I smell it and I like it, I might buy one. 😛 From the website it turns your bath water black and sparkly and I’m down for both of those!

  • Black Rose lipstick – £6.50 (link)

I’ve used Lush lipsticks and tints in the past and they’re pretty amazing to be honest! I’ve been using my Sugar Plum Fairy lip tint from last year and I forgot how great it is! Due to that I really want to pick this one up! It looks black in the tube but when applied to the lips is a vampy dark raspberry pink shade. Perfect for the colder months! I mostly love how these moisturise as you wear them, which is something I’m always after in a lipstick.

That’s sadly all the Halloween products I’m after this year, which I’m sure my bank balance appreciates!

Now onto the Christmas goodies I want… Bank balance is going to soon be hating me. 😉

  • Thundersnow bath bomb – £4.50 (link)

When I saw this being spoken about at the showcase I thought I recognised it, but it wasn’t out for Christmas last year so I did a little digging as to where I would have seen it before and discovered that it was actually a limited edition product at the Lush Summit at the start of the year! Crazy, huh? All that time and now it’s out for Christmas. It sounds amazing though. It has peppermint and cocoa butter in so it sounds like it’ll smell of After Eight chocolates. YUM! It also looks really cool, like a disco zebra. 😛

  • Snow Fairy jelly bomb – £4.96 (link)

As many Lush fans will know Lush recently brought out their jelly bombs and they look pretty cool to be honest! I’m not going to be trying it myself however until I need to buy more bath bombs and bubble bars. I still have some bath bombs to use up from last Christmas! I definitely want my first go at them to be Snow Fairy scented though. These are really expensive though at pretty much £5 and although I can get 2 baths out of it, I need to consider if I really want to pay that much for ONE bath bomb. I’ll probably wait until the Boxing Day sale to grab this…

  • Sherbet Dip bath bomb – £3.75 (link)

This is one that I think is REALLY random for Christmas and to me it just doesn’t scream Christmas at all. If anything it reminds me of the school holidays in the summer and going to the corner shop with your mates to buy sherbet dip and other crappy sweeties. This is from memory the cheapest Christmas bath bombs that Lush has brought out this year and I have wondered if that’s one of the reasons that people have bought it… Either way it sounds really nice and I’d like to give it a go, but I’m not fussed if I miss out on it. It sounds similar to Fizzbanger bath bomb.

  • Plum Snow bubble bar – £5.95 (link)

I have to get this off of my chest and say what a cheek I think it is to charge £6.00 for a bubble bar. I don’t care how big it is or how many baths you’ll get from it. That’s expensive. I can make my own bubble bars for less and get more… I think. 😛 Either way it’s a fucking shame to be honest because this bubble bar sounds amazing! By the name it obviously shares its scent with Plum Rain shower gel, which I still need to smell! It sounds delicious… Just a shame about the price. I’ll be waiting until Boxing Day to buy this.

  • Man In The Moon bubble bar – £5.95 (link)

This is another newbie for Christmas this year and like Sherbet Dip bubble bar, it just doesn’t scream Christmas to me… If anything it could remind me of stories you would have been told Christmas Eve… By the sounds of it it shares its scent with Monsters Ball due to the lime fragrance, which I like the sound of! It’s also funny how they both have one eye each. Can’t go wrong with that!

  • My Two Front Teeth bubble bar – £3.95 (link)

Again, what the hell Lush? This is such a random shape for a Christmas product and I don’t get why it’s here! Maybe it was a random toy that someone in the Lush creative team had when they were growing up. If this is the case then why didn’t Lush include a little moustache too??? This sounds lovely scent wise however and would be one I’d pick up if it was as good as it sounds. It contains vanilla and lavender so this would be a lovely bubble bar to use in the evenings, especially for children due to how fun the bubble bar looks too.

  • Christmas Cracker bubble bar – £5.95 (link)

This is one I’m unsure if I’ll like or not due to the scent, as it has that citrus lemon and lime smell going on, which Lush seem to be loving this Christmas. BUT they actually have a product out that is Christmassy! This looks like a pretty big bubble bar to be honest but again it’s so damn expensive! I have a feeling it has a bath melt on it as well, but it doesn’t state that. It does however contain popping candy so it’s a fun one for children to use around bonfire night.

  • The Snowman bubbleroon – £4.25 (link)

I love bubbleroons so much! I find they’re really soothing for the skin and especially great during the colder months when your skin is feeling dry and needs some serious TLC. I’ve not tried the snowman bubble bars or melts before, but I wouldn’t mind changing that this year. This contains orange to brighten your spirits and soya milk and shea butter to soften your dry skin. This again would be a cute one to give to children to use.

  • Star Light Star Bright bath melt – £4.25 (link)

This apparently shares its scent with Golden Wonder bath bomb (which is now my favourite Christmas bath bomb now that they’ve discontinued So White…). It contains lime oil as well as ginger, so I’m not sure what this would smell like. I’m pretty sure this is also a reoccurring product that was around for a few years before 2016. If that’s the case then I know a lot of Lushies will be happy to see this back!

  • Snow Fairy FUN – £6.95 (link)

This isn’t a new product and actually came out last year, BUT again it’s a product I never got to try and wanted to. I’ll definitely pick one up this year though, I LOVE the Lush FUN. It’s a multipurpose product but I love mostly using it as a bubble bar, to wash with and surprisingly even to use as a shave gel for my legs. Hey! Why can’t I shave my legs and smell like a fairy at the same time? 😛 This is actually the only FUN Lush have brought out for Christmas this year, which I’m really disappointed about. Again I also sound like a misery BUT I remember when FUN was £5.00… Don’t you? :S

  • Salt And Peppermint Bark body scrub – £6.95 (link)

Again, another returning favourite has come back for a second, if not third year now! AND I AM STILL YET TO TRY IT! This has clearly done well each year for it to come back and would be an amazing partner to team up with Christingle and Thundersnow for a minty and fresh bath.

  • Snow Fairy cold pressed soap – £5.95 (link)

I’ve never used cold pressed soap before but as old and regular readers of mine will know, I HATE Lush soaps. I’ll use them if gifted or bought them, but I would never go out of my way to buy them. They often flare up my eczema and case sore and dry patches on my skin and always, ALWAYS dry up my hands and make them sore. I think the only time I’ve used Lush soaps is for shaving my legs and that’s usually the rare few I can use, one being Rock Star. I’m willing to give the cold pressed soaps a go though, they sound like they’re better for your skin and they look nice in their round little pill shape. ALSO IT’S SNOW FAIRY! I have to give it a go! I’d probably not use this for my hands, but instead get a nice soap dish for the bathroom and have it for washing hands.

  • Berry Berry Christmas shower gel – 250g – £11.95 and 500g – £17.95 (link)
  • Berry Berry Christmas naked shower gel – 240g – £11.75 (link)

This is one of the two new shower gels that Lush has brought out for Christmas this year and I’d like to say that that they have done an amazing fucking job! Last year they brought out Bubble shower gel which was my favourite new product of 2016 (you can read my review here). I don’t think this will be my favourite out of the two but you never know as I haven’t actually smelt them yet! This just sounds so fruity and delicious and I love scents like that as it contains cranberry and blueberry BOTH OF MY FAVOURITE FRUITS! This also contains loads of lustre as well, which looks amazing throughout the bottle from what I’ve seen on pictures. I can’t wait to give this a sniff!

  • Santa’s Christmas shower cream – 250g – £10.95 and 500g – £17.95 (link)
  • Santa’s Christmas naked shower cream – 240g – £10.75 (link)

THIS is what my favourite product of 2017 is looking to be. It shares its scent with Reindeer And Robin FUN and the Santa’s Baby lip tint and lip scrub which had a cola scent. Not exactly Christmassy but it’s really warming and reminds me of winter now thanks to Lush. I already know I want to pick up another Santa Baby lipstick BUT I definitely want to get the 500g bottle of Santa’s Christmas. Everyone is saying how gorgeous it smells and when used in the shower it leaves a long lasting scent on the skin. I was going to order one of these before I go on holiday, but I might as well wait until I get back. Lush have brought this out in a naked version which I very much doubt I’ll be getting. It just looks so fiddly to use!

  • Christingle body conditioner – 100g – £9.95 and 250g – £17.95 (link)
  • Christingle naked body conditioner – £9.75 (link)

I KNOW this has been around for about 2 years now BUT I am still to try it. I was gifted a Snow Fairy body conditioner last year and I haven’t used it yet. I intend to use it when I’m back from my holiday. This is going on the list as I still want to buy and use it, so it’s still technically new to me. It’s a minty body conditioner that you use in the shower after cleansing your skin. Like an in shower body lotion basically. I’ve used these in the past (the Nivea ones) and they work amazing! I haven’t yet used a Lush one, but I really want to. I’ll definitely be picking this up, I LOVE minty shower products. I’d definitely team it up with Intergalactic bath bomb. As you may have heard Lush have brought out some naked items this year including the body conditioners, body lotions and shower gels and creams. I don’t think I’d opt for the naked versions myself, they just sound and look too messy and fiddly.

  • Once Upon A Time body lotion – 100g – £7.95 and 225g – £13.95 and 500g (link)
  • Once Upon A Time naked body lotion – £7.95 (link)

So White looks to have been discontinued and in its place we have been gifted with Once Upon A Time body lotion AND a naked body lotion… I can’t complain, I have some sort of replacement BUT what if I didn’t want a body lotion? 😛 In all fairness I could do with moisturising my skin more, but I never feel like I have the time between working, blogging and being a lazy gaming moo. 😛 I wouldn’t mind giving this a go in store and seeing what I think. If anything I’d pick this up in the Boxing Day sale if it’s on offer.

  • Snow Fairy sparkle jar – £6.95 (link)

Snow Fairy is one of my favourite Christmas scents and I remember quite a while ago now that Lush brought out a massage bar in the classic Lush Christmas scent. I never bought it and I regret it so much. I knew a few people who purely got it to burn and use as a wax melt. I wouldn’t do that myself as it’d be an expensive wax melt! BUT I would love to pick up the new sparkle jar version of this to use when me and Dane give each other back massages. He loves the Snow Fairy scent just as much as I do so this one is right up our streets. The one thing I don’t like about this is the shimmer inside. I wouldn’t really use it in all fairness so this product seems like a waste of money to me.

  • Twilight sparkle jar – £6.95 (link)

This is exactly the same as the Snow Fairy sparkle jar, shimmer included! The only difference of course being the scent. This has the classic Twilight scent to it and although I’m swaying towards the Snow Fairy sparkle jar if I had to buy one, I also really like the sound of getting Twilight for back massages before bed. If I pick either of these up though it’ll be in the Boxing Day sales. 😛

FINALLY AFTER WRITING THIS POST FOR ABOUT 4 HOURS IT IS DONE! I’m not joking either. I’ve been faffing around from doing a live Instagram video, to messaging friends. It is finally done and here!

Overall what are my thoughts on Lush’s winter 2017 range? I’m pretty meh about it really. I know I have a decent list of products I want to smell and try but meh I don’t know what to think really. Apart from a couple of scents I don’t think majority of the products are actually anything to do with Christmas. When were citrus scents classed as Christmassy? Or a random pair of teeth and a man in the moon? I know a lot of people have said similar if not the same things as I have. I’ll buy some of the stuff but not as much as I will have bought in previous years, which to me is a shame.

When I get back from holiday I hope to go to Lush and check out ALL the new Christmas products and pick up a few bits. Hopefully anyway. 😛

What do you think of the Halloween and Christmas range this year? Make sure to let me know your thoughts in the comments down below.

Until next time all take car and I hope you’ve had an awesome weekend!

Benefit Gogotint Cheek & Lip Stain – Review

Don’t you just love when you have enough Boots Advantage points to treat yourself to something fancy? I noticed recently that Benefit Cosmetics had added a new lip stain to their ever growing collection and it’s definitely one of the nicest I’ve seen! I was going to be good and wait until me and Dane go on holiday, as I could have picked it up in the airport but I fancied a treat now… 😛 I had nearly £90 worth of points on my Boots card so I decided to treat myself before payday.

I’ve owned this stain for a week now and I am in love with it! I knew I had to review it for you all and compare it to Posie Tint, which I own the mini version of.

If you didn’t know Benefit have a lip stain line which you can use on the cheeks and lips. Before adding the new Gogo shade they had 4 shades in the collection, Gogo makes it 5.

There’s Benetint which is a rose colour and from swatching it in the past on my hand it’s actually my least favourite of all the tints. It’s a water like consistency is really awkward and annoying to work with and due to that I also feel that the colour doesn’t built up much and isn’t very pigmented due to it. I know it’s just a stain and isn’t meant to be pigmented but for the price I don’t feel that Benetint is worth it.

Rant over! 😛 The rest of the lip stains have a gel like texture to them, which is what I love! It’s easy to apply and feels really comfortable on the lips. The other shades include Chachatint which is a mango shade, Lollitint which is a candy-orchid shade and Posietint which is a poppy pink shade.

Of course we have the new shade Gogotint which is a bright cherry shade. Of course this will be the shade I’ll be reviewing today. I found this chart on the official Benefit website so thought I would pop it into this post. I don’t personally feel like it’s accurate though. I wish I had all the shades to swatch for you guys. As I own Posietint I’ll be swatching that alongside Gogotint so you can compare. I’ll probably review it in the future though as I’m hoping to pick it up in the airport before we go on holiday. I currently only own a mini version of Posietint so I’ll take pictures next to my full size of Gogotint for comparison.

Image taken from benefitcosmetics.com

Posietint mini next to full sized Gogotint

The full size of all the Benefit lip stains is 10ml, and the minis which you can buy or get in gift sets are usually 4ml. I got my 4ml mini lip stain from Boots about a year ago for £5.00, which was a complete bargain in my opinion! I don’t think Boots do the lip stain minis anymore, but they do do other minis as well.

ANYWAY! I want to talk about the packaging first. It’s got the typical Benefit retro pin up style to it that they’re so well known for. I love the bottle for Gogotint so damn much! It’s a gorgeous metallic glass bottle in a cherry pink colour to match the colour of the shade itself and a white lid with some detailing on it. I’m sure the detailing on the lid has only been introduced recently. The fact that it’s a glass bottle makes me a little wary and nervous, but I’m sure I wouldn’t damage it in anyway, unless I threw it. 😛

I love the bottle so much as it looks simple, yet expensive and pretty at the same time. However, the one thing I don’t like is not being able to see how much product you have left. It’s kind of a guessing game with these. The only lip stain to be in a clear bottle is Benetint. All the others are in the metallic coloured bottles.

Gogotint brush with product

Gogotint brush without product

Posietint brush

The brush for the Benefit lip stains remind me nail polish brushes. It’s really weird to be honest due to how flexible it is but how fiddly it is at the same time! I’ve struggled a little at times to use it when lining my cupids bow. It’s not too bad really as you can wipe away any mistakes you make, but all in all it is a pain in the arse if you’re in a rush. I find with my mini Posietint that due to the size the brush is a little thicker and therefore easier to use. I do wonder if a lip brush might be worth using when trying to be precise with the full size bottles. Either way I manage. 😛

Now I’ve spoken about the basics of Gogotint, I’ll FINALLY talk about the product itself!

I found a bit about it on the official website and Boots website too:

Brighten up with cherry red lips & cheeks!

Gogotint is the wildest flush you can get from a bottle! Our see-through bright cherry red lip & cheek stain is vibrant, juicy & pops till you drop. You gogo, girl!

• Cherry red lips & cheeks
• Kiss-proof & smudge-proof
• Longwear cheek & lip stain
• Instant pop of color
• Bright, see-through flush of color

Gogo-getter! Too busy for beauty? Never! Brush gogotint cherry red tint on cheeks and lips then blend for a vibrant flush. It only takes 5 seconds! BEAUTY TIP: Thank you CHERRY much! Gogotint’s flush will get you lots of flattery. Not used to all the attention? Just respond “thank you cherry much”…they’ll get the hint!

I had a look around Instagram and YouTube for ages of people swatching and showing off the colour of this so that I could get an idea of whether I would like this colour or not. When I heard it was a cherry red/pink shade I KNEW I would love it. These sorts of pinks are right up my street. I can’t be dealing with light colours. 😛

Dark heart – Gogotint, light heart – Posietint and circle beneath is Gogotint blended out

This really is a bright colour and would actually be a great lip colour for anyone who is wanting to venture over to the dark side of the none nude variety! This in my opinion is the most vibrant and pigmented shade that Benefit have brought out in their lip stain collection to date. I love it!

Wearing Gogotint

Wearing Gogotint

As I’ve already mentioned this has a gel consistency to it and isn’t too thick and isn’t too thin, so it’s perfect for applying. It’s especially great for applying to the centre of your lips for a just bitten look. This is something I have tried somewhat with Gogotint and it looks gorgeous with this shade.

The one thing I really like about this shade is that it’s buildable so you can dab a little on with your finger to create a soft pink shade and look, or apply a couple of coats to really pack a punch with that gorgeous cherry red colour for an alternative pin up girl look.

I have tried both and love them both just as much as the other. I also applied this in the inside of  my lips and then applied Posietint on the outside for a gradient and just bitten look.

I’ve worn both of these at work and they last really well to be honest! I’ll have to top them up when I go for my break (4-6 hours into my shift) but that’s kind of normal to me for something like this. I also use my Vaseline before applying this and making sure to wipe away most of the excess when applying the lip stain. I also use it over the top of the stain throughout the day to keep my lips soft. It doesn’t dry out the lips though and if anything feels comfortable and not like you’re wearing anything on your lips.

I can’t really put my finger on what the scent of this is and it smells exactly the same as Posietint. I don’t want to say a chemical smell because it doesn’t smell like that at all… But it doesn’t smell of anything either… It’s scentless! 😛 It doesn’t smell disgusting, let’s put it that way and it doesn’t smell when you apply it to the lips, which is good.

Of course as the name states, you don’t have to just use this on the lips, you can also use it on your cheeks as a blush. I won’t be doing this but it looks so pretty when blended out!

I tried to test if you can remove this with my Garnier micellar cleansing water and it removed really easily which I was surprised about. This is a little disappointing but at the same time I can’t complain! I’d be moaning about it staining if it didn’t come off. 😛

Another little thing I like to do with Gogotint is I like to apply a highlight onto my lips to give it a pop of colour! I never thought of doing this before and I’m so chuffed with the outcome, which I’ll show on here of course!

As I always do, here are some picture of me wearing Gogotint alone, with Posietint and of course with the highlighter. Loads of pictures await you!

My overall feelings on Gogotint is that it’s an amazing lip stain and one that I don’t regret buying. If anything it will become one of my go to lipsticks now! I’m definitely going to take it on holiday with me as it’ll be lovely to wear both in the daytime and the evening when going out.

All 5 of the lip stains by Benefit cost £25.50 from both the official Benefit Cosmetics website and Boots. As I mentioned before you get 10ml of product for this price and right now I feel it’s well worth the money as a little bit of the lip stains really does go a long way and of course it’s a 2 in 1 product, you can also use this on your cheeks as a blush!

What do you think of the new lip stain? You like it, or are you not sure? Do you own any of the Benefit lip stains? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time all, take care and I hope you’ve had a lovely week so far.

Lush Coventry Halloween & Christmas BBlogger Event (WARNING! Picture Heavy!)

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 15 21 pm_zps62mm0y0x.jpg

Oh my God I have never been so excited to write a post for quite a long time. As regular readers will know I LOVE Lush and I especially love when they come out with their new Halloween and Christmas products every year.

SO when the Coventry store called out for bloggers to go to their store for an event last week I jumped at the chance! I have been to the Coventry store various times in the past and it’s a lovely little store.

The event itself to date has been one of my favourites that I have attended and I really hope to attend more like it in the future. The staff were friendly and chatty and the fellow bloggers who were there were all lovely.

Apart from having a nose and sniff of all the new goodies the staff also talked us through all the new products which was great! When you visit Lush over Christmas it is constantly busy so you’re forever wanting to get shown how to use things but never being able to properly. So this was a great chance to see all the products properly and even try them ourselves.

The first thing we were shown were the body and face products which I was excited to look at. Buche De Noel an old Christmas favourite was the first thing to be shown to us. I’ve never tried it before but it’s said to be a creamy and softening face cleanser. You can get it in the normal version and alcohol free. If you like this old favourite then this year they have a special gift called Festive Fresh which contains Buche De Noel and Let The Good Times Roll.

A face product that they didn’t have in store (nor show us due to that I imagine) was the Papa Noel face wash jelly. When you take it out of the packaging it’s in the shape of a white Father Christmas beard. It’s the first time Lush have made anything like this and it looks like fun to use. I hope I get chance to look at it in a store soon!

The second item they showed us is a new one for Halloween this year which is Goth Fairy. This is part of the massage bar range but it contains shimmer so when it’s rubbed onto the skin it leaves behind a bit of shimmer. Well I say a bit, but it’s quite a generous amount! I stepped forward to have this demoed on me and it really does feel lovely. I was tempted to buy one of these to use on me and Dane as a massage bar for our backs, but due to the shimmer I left it. The scent of this reminded me The Comforter a little bit with its blackcurrant scent. This will be a great product to apply before a night out, especially over the Christmas period! As this is part of the Halloween range you need to make sure you pick one up before they fly away.

As a fan of the Twilight scent and family I KNEW I would love the Sleepy body lotion, which is new this year. I hope Lush bring this out in the Lush Kitchen often to keep us lot happy! This isn’t a super thick body lotion and when you first open the pot it has some silver shimmer on the top which makes it look too good to use! I tried this on my hands during the event and it made them feel really nice and soft. As regular readers of my blog will know I suffer with eczema and so I’m always trying out different hand creams to try and help it. This one seems like a winner and one I’ll definitely be picking up before Christmas is over! It smells just like the shower gel too, but not as intense which I really liked. It’ll be a nice one to use before bed.

There was more products that the staff showed us, but sadly I didn’t get pictures. One being the Fairy Dust dusting powder, which is a returning favourite from last year. It smells just like Snow Fairy and I was given one last year by a friend. It smells gorgeous and due to it containing shimmer it’s lovely to use before nights out.

For Christmas Lush have also introduced a new dusting powder called Mr Sandman, which shares its scent with the Twilight family! It smells lovely, but not as good as the shower gel and body lotion in my opinion. If I had to choose one of the two new items that are out this year, the body lotion would be mine. This is a white dusting powder so it doesn’t leave behind any colour after use, just plenty of shimmer!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 25 pm_zpsk4ffe3ih.jpg

After looking at those items we were moved onto shower and there are a couple of new pieces for Christmas. The first one we looked at was Salt And Peppermint Bark body scrub which Lush brought out last year. I’m so glad they’ve brought it back as I never got the chance to try it last year! This smells like peppermint chocolate bark, which is obviously where this gets its name from.

Sadly this year there aren’t any new shower jellies, but Lush have brought back Santa’s Belly which was a new one last year. It is said to share its scent with So White bath bomb, but I don’t think so at all! So White is crisp apple smelling, whilst this one has a different scent in my eyes. It’s red with red stars inside of it. Nice to use in the mornings to wake you up! The Coventry store has a huge version of it on display, which I played with for a bit.

Lush have also brought back Snowman shower jelly which has been around for as long as I can remember! The store has a big version of this too like Santa’s Belly, but sadly my picture turned out blurry of it. 😦  It comes in the shape of a snowman, which looks really cute when you take it out of the tub. It smells of gentle citrus and like Santa’s Belly will be lovely to use in the morning before work to wake you up.

Another product from last year that I was super excited about has come back again this year! YAY, and something that makes it better is that it is now available in two sizes instead of just the large size. This is Christingle body conditioner. It’s like a body lotion that you use in the shower. You apply this to the skin after using a shower gel and rinse it off to be left with beautiful smooth and yummy smelling skin. Due to the mint and menthol in this one it leaves your skin feeling tingly and cool. Probably not what you want in winter, but it smells amazing AND look at that gorgeous blue colour!

Alongside Christingle Lush have brought another body conditioner out this year, however this one is new and one everyone has already fallen in love with. Of course it is Snow Fairy body conditioner and oh my God it smells beautiful! I know I already want to pick one of these up and hopefully quite a few in the Boxing Day sales. Like the shower gel the conditioner is pink, but when you open up your new tub it will have some shimmer on the top just like the Sleepy body lotion. Oh Lush why do you do this to my bank account?

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 43 pm_zpsictftods.jpg

Of course it wouldn’t be a Lush Christmas without Snow Fairy! I’ve recently opened my 1kg bottle that Dane bought me for my birthday. There isn’t much I can say about this. It smells beautiful, it looks beautiful, so go buy it. 😛

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 36 pm_zpsxhmfhd75.jpg

Rose Jam shower gel has been around for a couple of years now and I don’t actually remember it ever coming out. I do however remember everyone obsessing about it last year! I personally don’t see what all the fuss is about this shower gel, but that’s just me. It does have a floral yet sweet smell behind it. I was gifted the bubbleroon version of this last Christmas and I absolutely loved it! I’ve got a Rose Jam to use so I’ll make sure to review it soon! 😀

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 02 01 pm_zpsaqax3yia.jpg

This isn’t for Christmas and is actually for Halloween, however Lord Of Misrule shower cream is available all year in the Oxford Street store, so this is just a goody for anyone who can’t make it to that store. I still want to give this a go as I really do like the scent of it.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 27 pm_zpsw1qfulwb.jpg

The newest member of the Christmas shower gel family this year is Bubbly and oh boy this is probably my favourite new thing this year that Lush has brought out. I ended up buying one of these after the event as I loved it that much. It shares its scent with Golden Wonder bath bomb, so an uplifting and citrus scent thanks to ingredients such as grapefruit, lemon and grapes. I already know I’ll be buying a huge bottle of this as it’s just such a beautiful scent.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 46 pm_zps83xbg4u7.jpg

The last shower item we were shown were Candy Cane and Yog Log shower roulade. Now I’m not a huuuuge fan of these as I find they’re quite expensive for what they do to my skin. However when I heard that Lush weren’t bringing back Yog Nog as either the soap or the bath bomb I was GUTTED! I did get to try this in store however and it felt really lovely when applied to the skin. So it is something I will be trying at some point! I doubt that I’ll fall in love with it mind. I mean come on Lush!? I want Yog Nog back! 😛 I was actually expecting them to bring out a shower cream to be honest, but alas it didn’t happen. I may have to make my own with the two Yog Nog bath bombs I have left.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 13 18 pm_zpsjw9bynxl.jpg

Next we moved onto the soaps. I’m not a huge fan of Lush soaps (apart from Yog Nog and Rock Star) as I’m allergic to quite a lot of them so I often more than not steer clear of them. At Christmas though I always give the new and existing ones a sniff and this year I discovered quite a few I liked the smell of.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 32 23 pm_zpstilmp1b3.jpg

This is Igloo soap and it reminds me of a mixture of Turkish Delight and fruit pastilles. That being said this soap does infact smell of Turkish Delight which in turn reminded me of Angels Delight soap that Lush had out for various years until last year. I didn’t like that soap sadly due to it giving me an awful allergic reaction. The smell is lovely mind. This will make a lovely gift for someone to open on Christmas Day who loves fruit pastilles.

This is one of my least favourite products this year and it isn’t due to the appearance or scent. I LOVED Reindeer Rock last year and the year before. Before the change it was purple, with silver reindeer on and it smelt just like The Comforter. I LOVED it! Now it is blue, looks like a pebble with a gold reindeer on and smells NOTHING LIKE IT DID BEFORE! WHAT?! It smells more floral now and whilst it doesn’t smell horrible, it just isn’t the same. I would have expected Lush to change the name of it to be honest. Either way it does look pretty, just a shame about the scent change…

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 32 pm_zpsmmsb2otg.jpg

These two are definitely my favourite soaps this year and I can actually see me buying a chunk of them both to try.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 37 pm_zpsab42mcol.jpg

My favourite of the two and out of all the soaps is definitely Baked Alaska. It’s been around for a couple of years now from memory and I never really recall it smelling like this beforehand but it is gorgeous. It reminds me of Bubbly with its citrus scents, such as grapefruit. It is definitely one that would wake you up in the morning to use. Sadly due to the type of soap this is (gel look) I have a feeling I’ll be allergic to it. Sad times. 😦

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 35 pm_zpsbsu4cphp.jpg

This was definitely an eye catching soap and one I really love the look of. If I got a decent chunk I would end up wanting to just have it for show over Christmas on a soap dish instead of using it! No I joke. This is Snowcastle soap and like Baked Alaska it has been around for a while from memory. This smells of creamy marzipan and is one for people with a sweet tooth! It isn’t too sweet scent wise though. This is a creamy soap and I have a feeling my skin will like this one, especially my hands.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 40 pm_zpsip53gsci.jpg

This is a new soap this year and one that I’ve seen quite a few people go crazy for. When I first saw and heard about Shooting Stars soap I immediately assumed it would smell the same as Shoot For The Stars bath bomb due to the appearance. Alas it is nothing like it and actually smells of lemon and lime which smells delicious! This soap is very pretty to look at but it’s also a little bit special. When put in the dark or at least a dark room the UV in the stars makes the stars glow. Magical or what?!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 49 pm_zpszyvajamp.jpg

I didn’t get a very good picture of this soap sadly, which I was pretty gutted about! But this is Santa’s Postbox soap and it is gorgeous to look at! It’s in an English red postbox shape and it just looks amazing. It also smells great too and shares its scent with Satsuma bath bomb due to the orange and satsuma scent. I got given  chunk of this from the store to take home but sadly due to the gel style consistency of this soap I’m worried that I may end up having an allergic reaction… We will have to see how I get on! I’ll be reviewing this for sure.

Alongside all those soaps there were two I sadly didn’t manage to get pictures of such as them being Halloween soaps and I was kinda too excited for the Christmas ones. I did smell these of course and they are really lovely. Fireside soap reminds me of bonfire night due to the smokey yet soothing scent of it. I would love to buy this but I don’t know if I would use it enough. It’s a very manly scent. There was also Magic Wand soap which is full of yummy fruity scents and one that will definitely wake you up on a cold autumn morning.

These are just two of the many new Christmas products I was excited to see at the event and I ended up buying the Sugar Plum Fairy lip tint after the event finished. YAY! I haven’t yet used it though but I intend to after today and review it as soon as possible.

As well as the Sugar Plum Fairy range Lush have brought back the red cola smelling lip products Santa Baby lip scrub and lip tint. I tried the new lip tint in the tube (I’ve only ever owned the one in the tin) and it really does tint, if not stains your lips! I would love to pick one of these up before Christmas is over. I’ve owned both in the past and they really are lovely lip products so I was excited to try the new ones which have a yummy blackcurrant taste and scent, just like The Comforter… Which in turn is one of my favourite scents by Lush.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 24 41 pm_zpsnm2kleon.jpg

I’m surprised I didn’t pick up the Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub after the event as it smelt delicious, just like Ribena so I can only imagine it would taste just as amazing as well! I love the Lush lip scrubs as they’re great value for money and really are good to use before applying liquid lipsticks. However I always forget to use them and they end up being a waste of money… If someone gifts me this this Christmas I won’t complain but due to the above fact I can’t see me buying it myself. 😦

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 24 53 pm_zpsmxsejj12.jpg

This is the Sugar Plum Fairy lip tint. LOOK HOW DAMN PIGMENTED THAT IS! Oh and the colour is gorgeous too of course! I didn’t expect it to be as bright as it came out. It looks like a dark purple in the tube but comes out as a raspberry pink with some pink and purple shimmer, which is only slight. This reminds me of Rebel lipstick by MAC. I honestly cannot wait to wear this to work and review it.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 53 22 pm_zps1pmmc10g.jpg

Onto the part of this post that I’m sure everyone is excited for, the bath bombs and bubble bars! I have loads to talk about here, both old and new products.

Candy Mountain bubble bar is an oldie that has changed shape over the years, but a few years back it finally found it’s form and is the beautiful mini mountain we all know and love today. It smells exactly the same as Creamy Candy bubble bar and Rock Star soap. If you like Snow Fairy you’ll love these as it smells like a sweet creamy vanilla scent.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 20 31 pm_zpsrxou1dtt.jpg

These are the two new reuseable bubble bar by Lush and they’re both amazing!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 20 34 pm_zpsw1h8pcs9.jpg

The first one is Jester, a cute little guy who will appeal to children a lot. It is a citrus scented bubble bar which will be lovely to use after a long day when you need to be perked up a little bit. I know I’ll be picking one of these cuties up! I love how colourful it is and I bet it makes the bath water a lovely orange colour to match its scent. This teamed up with Bubble shower gel will work perfectly.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 13 pm_zpsc6alijes.jpg

This is another one of my favourite bubble bars this year! It’s Santasaurus and it smells just like Honey I Washed The Kids soap, so of yummy toffee and sweet treats. Plus look how cute it is?! It’s a little dinosaur with a Christmas hat on! Yes you wouldn’t expect to see it at Christmas but this is why Lush are so great when it comes to Christmas. They come out with different things and not always traditional, which I love. I bet this turns the bath water a beautiful turquoise shade. I’m so excited to try it.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 56 57 pm_zpsc3wwzdpe.jpg

Magic Wand is a returning favourite to Lush and I still have a couple of these left in my Lush box. These share their scent with Snow Fairy and create some amazing bubbles when put under a running tap.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 00 pm_zpswosaigke.jpg

This is a returning reuseable bubble bar from last year and is one that whilst I’m not a fan of the scent, it’s definitely one of the best looking of the four! It’s The Magic Of Christmas and is a gold star bubble bar on a cinnamon stick. It smells warm and delicious of cinnamon and clove. If you love scents like this then you will love this one!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 55 32 pm_zps3cm1irhl.jpg

Peeping Santa bubble bar is another returner from last year and one I’m excited to see again! I got one of these for Christmas and I didn’t think I would like it, but I loved using it in one of the first baths I had in our house. It’s a soft strawberry scent and is very conditioning for the skin. I want to pick up quite a few of these in the Boxing Day sales!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 53 26 pm_zps0kkl4uaj.jpg

I am so damn happy to see this little cutie back, The Christmas Penguin! Lush didn’t bring him back last Christmas and myself and lots of other Lushies were really sad about it. Finally he has returned and I can’t wait to pick one up. He has a lovely soft scent which reminds me of Johnson’s baby bath. If I remember right this is a bubble bar aimed at children but sod it, adults love this cutie just as much.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 56 55 pm_zps5kthtnjk.jpg

This bubble bar is called Snowie and is clearly inspired by David Bowie. The legend died at the start of this year, which was a terrible shame. 😦 So from what I can gather, Lush decided to show their love for him in this way. This bubble bar reminds me of something that I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s said to have grapefruit in but I can’t really smelly it to be honest. It reminds me a little of Tramp shower gel and Supertramp bubble bar, but a softer smelling version. I’ll definitely be buying one.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 16 pm_zpsi735darf.jpg width=

Finally we have Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar this year which is a returner after seven years. Yes you read that correctly 7 YEARS! This is also the bubble bar we got the chance to make ourselves, which was so much fun! This smells heavily of cinnamon and is a very warming bubble bar. It’s bright red and have red glitter all over it too. I’m not a massive fan of the scent as it gives me a bit of a headache. It is clearly inspired by the shoes that Dorothy wears in The Wizard of Oz and a lot of people probably wouldn’t relate the film to Christmas, but I sure do. From the age of 5 I remember year after year attempting to watch this movie before bed on Christmas Eve and always falling to sleep around the time she meets the Scarecrow. When I was 9 my dad bought it for me for Christmas so I could finally watch it without worrying about falling to sleep. I was so happy!

Now it’s time to talk about bath bombs! There are quite a few new ones out which is awesome. My favourite things to buy from Lush are always the bubble bars, bath bombs and shower gels/creams. 😀

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 49 pm_zpsu1dhqwnw.jpg

This is one of the new bath bombs for this year which is called Mistletoe and I really don’t like it! Which is a shame as it looks so damn pretty. It’s a very strong floral scented bath bomb and I’m not a fan of that at all sadly. If you love ylang ylang then you will love this bath bomb!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 47 pm_zpshhutn60m.jpg

This cutie is a new version of Shoot For The Stars and I don’t know if I prefer it or not, I think I do however. It’s blue with gold star melts inside. It shares its scent with Honey I Washed The Kids which has a yummy toffee scent. I was given one of these in my goody bag after the event and it smells just like the previous versions. This is one of my favourite bath bombs so I can’t wait to see what it’ll be like with its new design.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 31 pm_zpsyfs683pf.jpg

This is another new bath bomb this year which everyone has gone crazy over due to Roller bath bomb. Never Mind The Ballistics is a yellow bath bomb with a pink bath melt on the top. It’s said to smell really citrusy due to the orange and lime oils but personally I couldn’t smell anything at the time of giving it a sniff. Maybe it was due to smelling so many products. I was really excited to smell this too, so when I did I was left disappointed. It looks very pretty though and I know the colours are inspired after the Sex Pistols album cover, but it doesn’t really remind me of Christmas sadly.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 08 pm_zpsph290ara.jpg

This is by far my favourite bath bomb and especially my favourite for Christmas. I remember when So White first came out back when I was either 19 or 20 and it was a tiny little bath bomb. Well it has come a long way since then! It’s become a larger bath bomb, has had bubble bar added inside and has had colours added inside. Now it has been transformed again and has a green leaf on the top and from what I’ve heard is now green inside instead of red. I cannot wait to get my hands on one this year!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 24 pm_zpsbc7o49b3.jpg

Another returner from last year and one that Lush has updated for the better this year. I know I found myself dealing with broken Star Dust bath bombs in the post and it really pissed me off. Now Lush have created a stronger bath bomb so that this same issue doesn’t happen again. It’s exactly the same as last year though and is so damn pretty! I can’t wait to pick some up again as I miss their creamy vanilla scent.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 34 pm_zps0rsmo8ms.jpg

An old favourite among children and adults alike, it’s Butterbear bath bomb which shares its scent with Butterball bath bomb. It smells of chocolate and contains chunks of cocoa butter. Great for moisturising the skin after a long day.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 21 03 pm_zpsx7v3hooe.jpg

This is one of my favourite Christmas bath bombs and is called Golden Wonder. It’s been around for as long as I can remember! I still have one from last year in my Lush box that I still need to use. It smells of citrus so lemon, lime and oranges. It shares its scent with Bubbly shower gel so I can’t wait to team the two up together!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 27 54 pm_zpshe1lfoi6.jpg

Father Christmas is a bath bomb that Snow Fairy lovers need in their lives. Due to sharing its scent with the best Fairy around and when it fizzes away in the bath the red outside reveals a bright green center.

This is an oldie bath bomb from a couple of years ago and is called Luxury Lush Pud. It doesn’t just share its scent with Twilight bath bomb, but it also looks beautiful! Christmas pudding doesn’t usually look like this which is what I like the most about this bath bomb. As it dissolves in the bath the coloured circles move from around it to form beautiful colours in the bath, as you can see from the picture above.

This is a bath bomb I thought Lush has discontinue for good after it not making a return last year. I loved the smell of this one and so did Dane but it wasn’t meant to be as we never bought one two years ago and couldn’t last year. However the bath bomb has now been changed and is better than ever! When placed into the water is is probably one of the prettiest bath bombs Lush has brought out. I am of course talking about Northern Lights. It’s a floral bath bomb which I find is really light smelling in comparison to a lot of Lush’s floral bath bombs and products. When placed into water it doesn’t just show it’s purple colours, but also yellow and blue. It’s so pretty and really does look like the northern lights.

Alongside Lush’s bubble bars and bath bombs we also have the bath melts and FUN bars to pick up too. Snow Angel is the only bath melt out this Christmas which is a shame as I love them! I’ve got one of these in my Lush box from last year and I’ve never used Snow Angel before. I hear it smells of marzipan which sounds delicious. I can’t wait to use this one cold evening to warm me up a little inside.

Of course since Lush creating FUN they always bring some out every Christmas. Lush have done the unthinkable and brought out a Snow Fairy FUN! I’m so damn excited for this and can’t wait to pick it up soon! They also have Reindeer And Robin which smells of cola and alongside Snow Fairy I’m really excited for it. Elf On The Shelf smells of refreshing grapefruit and Santa smells floral. FUN is amazing as you can use it for various things! To wash your body in the shower, run under the bath to create some yummy bubbles, make little people out of it and also used on your hair as shampoo.

I left the Halloween bath products until last to talk about!

Boo bath melt is new this year for Halloween and one I really wanted to love due to how adorable it looks, but sadly it isn’t for me. It smells of ginger and ick that really isn’t a scent for me. Why couldn’t it smell of marshmallow? It would have smelt amazing!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 20 57 pm_zpsssipeshl.jpg

I’ve never really smelt this bath bomb until now and it smells really yummy and fresh with lime and grapefruit. It’s Sparkly Pumpkin I wouldn’t mind giving it a go to be honest but the gold glitter puts me off… We shall see for sure.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 51 pm_zps9l4isdhl.jpg

Pumpkin bath bomb is new this year and one I knew I wouldn’t like. I’m not a fan of pumpkin both in taste and scent and this just reminds me of the scent of a pumpkin pie. ICK! It does look beautiful though and it is perfect for Halloween, especially over the pond in America.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 57 pm_zpsc9akak5p.jpg

This is by far one of my favourite items that Lush has brought out for Halloween! It smells of lime and reminds me of lime sweeties. Monsters Ball reminds me of something from Monsters Inc and I love it so damn much! I’ll be picking up a couple before Halloween is over.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 28 01 pm_zpsnxbows0c.jpg

Autumn Leaf is a new bath bomb for Halloween this year and of course it’s for the autumn season. I was sad that I didn’t like the scent of this one mind as it was very grass and floral heavy. It looks beautiful though!

So that is all the products! I know this post is really damn long as it is but I have a little bit more to write about and then I will be done! FINALLY! After going around the store we got the chance to make our own Red Ruby Slippers bubble bar, which was so much fun to make! I got the chance to mix the colouring and flavours into the mix which was harder than it looked at the time.

Finally it was time to buy any goodies we wanted, grab a goodie bag and head home but not before a picture of us all, which I have popped here of course, alongside a picture I nabbed from the Lush Coventry Instagram page.

Overall I loved the event that the Lush Coventry store put on for us beauty bloggers and I felt so happy being there! I was shattered after work and just wanted to have some fun at the event and meet some fellow bloggers, which is exactly what I did. I had an amazing time and from what I said at the start of the post it’s so far the best event I have been to to date!

I want to thank the store for letting me come to the event and I hope that I can attend more in the future.

What do you guys think of the Lush Halloween and Christmas range this year? Make sure to let me know what you think in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week.

Birmingham Anime and Gaming Con (Haul Inc.)

 photo Photo 04-10-2016 11 54 45 am_zpsrq44mvun.jpg

On Sunday me and Dane went to the anime and gaming con which was held in Birmingham. The con ran on both the Saturday and the Sunday and although we wanted to attend both days, Sunday stood out to us the most. We’re so glad we only went for the one day though. We had a lot of house stuff to do Saturday and if we had attended both days nothing would have been done. Oh the joys of being an adult and homeowner eh? 😛

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 1 21 32 pm_zps3u3uretz.jpg

The con itself was amazing and everything we imagined it would be like and more, so I thought I would write about it today for you all, as well as share what we bought at the con as well. Sadly I didn’t get any pictures of the con as we were too busy enjoying ourselves. I’m awful at getting pictures at places like this. 😦

As old readers will know me and Dane have been to a couple of conventions now including Birmingham comic con and Hyper Japan and this one was very different to those two. For a start the con as tiny in comparison to both of those, but that wasn’t a bad thing! We liked that it was small as it meant we got chance to really look at what everyone was cosplaying as and even get the chance to talk to people if we wanted to. It also meant that we could look around everywhere without having to queue, there not being enough room to walk around and even the worry of forgetting about looking at anything.

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 11 02 15 am_zpsqsc6d5jk.jpg

We also never bothered dressing up for the con as we’re boring farts and never really bother with anything like that. We could have worn our South Park outfits but meh. I wore my Iron Fist dress with Dane’s plaid jacket, tights and some brothel creepers. I loved my outfit and whilst I was a little self conscious in it, I felt comfortable for the majority of the time. I of course had to wear my Sailor Moon Luna bag that Dane bought me last year at Hyper Japan. I forgot how much I love that bag!

When I mentioned to people at work that I was going to the con I got a lot of questions such as, “Ooo will there be Japanese food there?” and to be honest I wish there was. Sadly there wasn’t any food stalls there but there was food offered by the place it was held at which was good! It was lovely weather on Sunday and it would have been lovely to have an ice cream van outside of the con… But I know that isn’t the organisers fault, problem, etc.

At the event itself there was always something going on which was great. There was the main hall where there were dealers and artists, a stage and a video gaming room. A corridor away there was the activities room and bar where you could go for something to eat and drink, watch anime, chillout, have your photograph taken in your cosplay outfit, play some games (TCGing, board games and RPG) and talks and workshops. Later in the evenings in this room they held karaoke and parties which we wished we had gone to.

We attended a couple of the workshops which were really interesting! The one Dane was most excited for was about the yakuza in Japan and although Dane knows quite a bit about it, I don’t and it was very interesting for me to listen to. The guy who got up to talk about it was great too and went into a lot of detail. The workshop I was excited for was about plushie making, which sadly got cancelled due to the host of it being poorly. There is always next time!

The stalls that were around selling things were good, although a lot of them were selling fake merchandise. As readers will know me and Dane collect Nendoroid figures so we know a fake when we see one! It was sad that we spotted three fakes and then saw that they had all sold. Very sad times.

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 6 05 20 pm_zpseb7f5fyy.jpg

Speaking of which lets get onto what we bought at the convention! We bought quite a few things most of them being mine to be honest. 😛

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 6 05 52 pm_zpsjbauhztc.jpg

 photo Photo 03-10-2016 7 58 14 pm_zpsv1jmpvrb.jpg

 photo Photo 03-10-2016 7 58 21 pm_zpstdbtg21t.jpg

We picked up two Nendoroid figures from a seller who was selling legit merchandise. She was reasonable with her prices too! I bought Isabelle from Animal Crossing and Dane picked up One Punch Man. They’renow living in our Dane also bought me a cute little Umaru secret figure box too! I got one of Umaru lying down on her tummy which is so cute.

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 6 05 50 pm_zpsdhpyvlzj.jpg

As well as fakery there were also some legit and lovely sellers at the event. Some who were selling their own work which is what we bought most of at the event. One guy was selling prints to people… A bit too heavily and forceful for us two. He was trying to get us to buy 10 prints for £40. Would have been a good deal if we wanted that many prints! We ended up buying one, this water Pokemon print for our bathroom.

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 4 47 15 pm_zps9jimxehn.jpg

As well as that we got two artists to draw for us, one of which isn’t actually finished yet. The first picture we got drawn was this chibi picture of me and Dane which is from one of our favourite pictures that we took not long after we got together. The artist is also going to draw and colour a digital image of us too, which we’re excited about! Another artist draw a picture of Dane from when he was in his band days. He would dress up in funny costumes whist on stage. This picture is from a costume he wore in Sheffield which of course is of him in a banana. It’s perfect and he loves it!

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 6 05 55 pm_zpsxx8f6swu.jpg

These are probably my favourite buys from the day, which are these two adorable Eeveelution t-shirts by Ohayou! who I’ve been a fan of for a while through Etsy. She does more designs than this which I really want to get. The two I picked up are one of a Sylveon print that says “dragon slayer” (if you don’t get it look it up) and one of an Umbreon looking sad… I couldn’t not take that t-shirt design home! The only thing I don’t like about these is the plastic feel of the print but it’s nothing serious. I’ll be wearing these all the time with some jeans, shorts and skirts. I plan to buy more of their goods in the future, or at least ask for them for Christmas. 😛

 photo Photo 02-10-2016 6 05 43 pm_zpsdmyn74ud.jpg

Alongside those goodies I picked up some little bits and pieces that were dotted around. I picked up some dog and red panda stickers, three Totoro pens, a Romantic Bear peel off lipstick (which I love! I have more of these on the way so I’ll be reviewing them all then), a pack of Eeveelution stickers, an ice verion of Ninetales sticker, a Lady Rainicorn sticker, a picture of Haiku in dragon form, and various badges.

As well as my opinion on the convention I wanted to get Dane to talk about his views.

Well, we had a really good time and were amazed at the incredible cosplay on show, but i think that was the biggest gripe for me. Too much emphasis on the cosplay aspect, not enough for those not so into cosplay to do. The talks were not very well organised and I felt sorry for a lot of the speakers as they had to alter their presentations due to technical errors and last minute changes and fillers. We didn’t watch any anime which is a disappointment as I was expecting a great chill-out atmosphere to watch anime and socialise. What we got was a tiny screen and a couple rows of chairs. To make people want to watch anything at an event you have to make it an improvement to what people may have at home. Personally, I can watch any of the anime shown on a much bigger TV, on a nice comfortable sofa with amazing sound. There was no incentive for us to take part.

I completely understand it is the very first one held in Birmingham so things may not always go to plan and there may not be enough funding to create the best convention ever. For the price we paid it was completely worth it and I can only expect to see it grow. I would like to see it in a bigger space with more artists and shops, more emphasis on gaming and the talks/panels, interesting food options and a more inviting experience for viewing anime.

Overall we loved our day at the convention and it reminded us how much we love going to events like this. It’s made us realise how much we really want to go to Birmingham Comic Con in November so we’ll be booking to go to that very soon!

October ’16 Wish List

Hello to autumn, Halloween, hot chocolate and of course October. Not my favourite month of the year but pretty damn close. I’m excited for so much this year due to living in the house. WOOHOO!

I have my eye on a few things at the moment but I constantly think that Christmas is looming so I may as well wait. Well it’s under 15 Sunday’s now until Christmas… WOW! Those will fly by. So it’s time to start thinking about what goodies I want from Father Christmas. 😛

I kid it’s too early for that!

 photo October 2016 Wish List_zpsjqkrlugo.jpg

  • Romantic Bear WOW Long Lasting Lip Colour 6 Pack – £2.75 (link)

These are such a bargain! You get 6 for that price, not just the one. Which is amazing! I think this is a cheap brand and I was cautious at first but after reading the reviews everything about them sounds pretty damn good from both reviews on the item on Amazon as well as from YouTubers. I have a feeling Dane may have ordered these for me whilst I’ve been writing this post due to how cheap they are. If he has I will be so excited for them! 😀

  • Disney Store 101 Dalmatians Glazed Mug – £9.99 (link)

I nearly bought this in September but I had to be good and left it… That and I have a lot of Disney mugs in our cupboard at the moment. BOO! It’s a really nice sturdy mug that would be great for hot chocolates. I may still pick one of these up in the future… I love Disney mugs too much, especially when they’re 101 Dalmatian or Lady and the Tramp themed.

  • Pokemon Kanto Edition Monopoly Board Game – £27.53 (link)

I have been on the search for this in stores for MONTHS! I’m not even exaggerating that! Me and Dane want this as a part of our house and we have found every other Monopoly board game other than this. I did find it on eBay for £29.99 and ages ago on Amazon for a staggering £45.00! It’s currently under both those prices from a seller on Amazon and I’m hoping it’ll still be there on payday.

  • Berrisom Lip Tint Cleanser – £7.42 (link)

I never knew about this until I started to search for the lip tints on Amazon and it looks pretty good. It’s a cleanser that you use on the lips to remove the lip tint. It looks and sounds fairly straight forward to use and sounds like a good idea. If and when I get the Berrisom/Romantic Bear lip tints I’ll be picking this up too to go along with them.

  • Pokemon Center Original Kuttari Sleeping Cubone Plush – £13.55 (link)

I love these plushies that the Pokemon Center in Japan have released and I have two. A mew and an Eevee which Dane bought for me. This alongside Ampharos are definitely on my Christmas and birthday wish lists this year! Dane bought me Mew for Christmas last year and Eevee for my birthday this year so I’m hoping he will repeat this again. I want a nice little display of them in our  living room cupboard.

  • Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint 6 Pack – £14.03 (link)

These are the lip tint tattoos that everyone is talking about and either going crazy for, or aren’t that arsed about. I recently found some of these for sale in TK Maxx and went to buy one, but at £9.99 each I thought they were a bit pricey… I’m glad I never because for under £20.00 you can get all 6 shades which I think is great! Like the Romantic Bear ones I think Dane may have ordered these for me too. I hope he has as I have wanted to try these since YouTubers started to discover them.

  • Mafia III on PS4 – £39.99 (link)

I am so damn excited for this game to come out! Less than a week and it’ll be mine. I plan to get it the day it comes out so I can play it all of my weekend off of work. I swear I saw this for £35.00 earlier last week on Amazon and I wish I had ordered it there and then!!!

So that was my wish list for October! I actually forgot to add some Kat Von D goodies but that can be for another post I guess. I would have also added some Christmas Lush items but that can be put into a separate post for sure!

What goodies do you have on your wish list this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments below.

Until next time take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Lush Christmas 2016

some_text

Woohoo it’s part two of my post(s) about the Lush Halloween and Christmas collections that recently leaked. This post is by far going to be my favourite of the two as I love Christmas time at Lush. They bring out my favourite Lush items and whenever I visit a store I always just feel so Christmassy and reminiscent of the Christmases before.

I am super excited for the collection this year, even though I am extremely sad and disappointed to say goodbye to Yog Nog bath bomb and Yog Nog soap. As a “sorry” for this I expected a shower cream to be announced but as of yet there is no news of this. There is a replacement for Yog Nog of course, which I will talk about at some point in the post.

I am going to talk about the new products that I am excited about this year, as well as any updated and new changes to some old favourites. By the way these aren’t in any sort of order.

 photo Christmas 15_zpsvvddgoqf.jpg

Two of my favourite Christmas bath bombs are on this page, those being Shoot For The Stars bath bomb and of course So White bath bomb. They’ve revamped them this year and I really like the look of them both. The gold stars in Shoot For The Stars are meant to be bath melts, which will be lovely!

 photo Christmas 14_zpst4eieq6m.jpg

Some old favourites again, including a new favourite last year that being Stardust bath bomb. Lush listened to its customers and their constant complains of Stardust’s breaking easily in transit and instead made the bath bomb sturdier. I just hope it doesn’t cost more money now as it was a good price before. I’m unsure of what I think about Never Mind The Ballistics bath bomb right now… It doesn’t really ring to a Christmas vibe to me. We shall see.

 photo Christmas 1_zps713ahvd0.jpg

I never got to give Northern Lights bath bomb a go when it came out a couple of years back but it’s come back this year and I know a lot of Lushies who are really happy about this! I wouldn’t mind giving Satsuma bath bomb a go to be honest but I’m not overly fussed if I don’t get the chance to. I’ve still got two Father Christmas bath bombs to use, as well as a Snow Angel luxury bath melt.

 photo Christmas 3_zps2ycjjnt8.jpg

I love Snowie bubble bar so damn much and I think it’s easy to see why. It’s of course a bubble bar that is in tribute to the late David Bowie and it’s such a little cutie. I wish they would keep him all year around.

 photo Christmas 4_zpsaf8aqzvi.jpg

I am so bloody happy that The Christmas Penguin bubble bar is back! I wanted to buy him last year and I couldn’t find him anywhere. Well I’m sure he wasn’t around last year anyway! Of course a firm favourite Candy Mountain bubble bar is back as well which I’m pleased about too. I still have one of my Peeping Santa bubble bars from last year. I’ll be using that soon.

 photo Christmas 10_zpse8lz9fed.jpg

I don’t think anything has made me so happy on this list as the Santasaurus reusable bubble bar has. I was worried it would be something horrible smelling (well to me anyway) but I was delighted when I read that it smells of toffee! I wonder if this is to replace Yog Nog somehow? Jester reusable bubble bar also sounds really nice with its citrus scented bubbles.

 photo Christmas 5_zpsocne5xg9.jpg

I was so damn excited when I saw that Snow Fairy got a FUN this year! For £5.00 I will be stocking up on these bad boys to use in the bath! Reindeer And Robin FUN sounds delicious too as it is said to smell of cola. NOM!

 photo Christmas 13_zpsclkbgrhd.jpg

Urgh Lush soap… I’m not a massive fan of the stuff as it either dries my skin out and causes my eczema to flare, or it gives me allergic reactions. ICK! The only two soaps I have been able to use and enjoy from the Christmas limited edition is Reindeer Rock soap and Yog Nog soap. Sadly they have discontinued the latter, but have kept Reindeer Rock on and changed it a little. I’ll be excited to pick up a newer version of it. It smells and reminds me of The Comforter.

 photo Christmas 12_zpsf2cgc1q7.jpg

I am so damn excited for the roulades this year! I am sad that the Yog Nog bath bomb and soap have gone, but Lush haven’t upset me completely as they’ve brought it out in a roulade form. They’ve also done the same with Candy Cane which was also a soap for a while. I’ll definitely be trying both. I’ve never tried a roulade before so it’ll be exciting to give them both a go.

 photo Christmas 11_zpsbh7umzqb.jpg

Snow Fairy! That is all I have to say!

 photo Christmas 8_zpsekezluaq.jpg

I’m not a massive fan of the shower jelly that Lush have brought out for Christmas for quite a while now. I do rather like the sound of the Papa Noel face jelly mind. I don’t get how it works though other than breaking off a piece and applying it to the skin. These are soon going to become a regular thing to Lush if you ask me as I have already seen leaked images of a bunny shaped one for Easter…

 photo Christmas 7_zpsvj5bhphn.jpg

I am so pleased that Lush brought back the Salt And Peppermint Bark body scrub as I wanted to try it so badly last year and I never got the chance to. Now I can! YAY!

 photo Christmas 2_zpsyhsxoxcf.jpg

Oh my I am excited for everything on this page! Most of all the Snow Fairy body conditioner. I love Snow Fairy as it’s just one of my favourite scents and reminds me to when I was a child. I wanted to pick up Christingle body conditioner last year but I never got a chance to. I’ll definitely be picking up both this year. It also looks like they’ve made two sizes instead of just he one this year which is great for trying before committing to a  larger pot!

 photo Christmas 6_zpsnyj9cot0.jpg

Fairy Dust dusting powder came out last year and I was given a bottle by my friend Sophie that her sister no longer wanted. I haven’t used it much to be perfectly honest but it smells amazing and I’ll be using it quite a bit throughout the colder months. I love the sound of Mr. Sandman dusting powder as it’s obviously Twilight scented and would make a lovely edition to my evening routine.

 photo Christmas 9_zpsvwvpqm1r.jpg

I love the lip products Lush bring out at Christmas as they’re always really pretty and taste amazing! The Santa Baby lip tint and scrub both taste and smell of cola which is good of course. NOW Lush are bringing out a blackcurrant offering called Sugar Plum Fairy. OMG YES YES YES! I will probably buy both of them, especially the lip tint. Come on it’s purple. 😛

So those were my briefs thoughts on the new Christmas products leaked for 2016. It’s a shame they have leaked so early but Lush needn’t worry to be honest as it will just show them what products we’re all loving or not loving as much… I am once again sad about Yog Nog. I really hope it comes back!

What products do you like the look of for Christmas? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely bank holiday weekend.
