Review: Lush Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Happy Valentines Day everyone! Being the singleton that I am I decided, instead of getting all down on this loved up day, I would have a bit of a pamper session. 

I recently ordered a bunch of products from Lush (See what I got HERE!), one of which was the Valentines Day limited edition Magic Mushroom bubble bar.

Aside from being super cute, this bubble bar also smells pretty scrumptious! Its bright red top smells of vanilla, while its white stem smells of strawberries (I had expected it to be the other way round!), giving your bath a delicious strawberries and cream scent that isn't overpowering.

This bubble bar is easy to crumble and just a small portion gives lots of lovely bubbles. It also leaves your bath a rather pleasant rosy red colour. Although it doesn't boast of any skin moisturising ingredients, I found this bubble bar to leave my skin feeling very soft and nourished.

The Magic Mushroom retails for £2.45 and is only available for a few more days, so be quick if you want to snap this little beauty up!

Review: NYX Slide On Eye Pencils

I had heard a lot about these eye-liners, so when I came across them at IMATS London I just had to give them a go! I swatched them then and there and was amazed at how smoothly they glide on! These liners are highly pigmented, little or no pressure is needed to achieve a super intense colour. They are waterproof and don't smear or smudge, perfect for the waterline. They are very comparable to the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye-liners but a lot more affordable, retailing at £6.50 in the UK and £8 in the US.

I purchased two of these fabulous liners at IMATS in the colours Gunmetal and Glitzy Gold. I had been wanting a gold liner for ages and this one was perfect. I could not find the black liner so opted for Gunmetal and am glad I did, it's not as harsh as pure black.

I have been using Gunmetal in my waterline everyday since I got it (hence the stubby end) and it stays all day, even through those long busy work days! I had such a problem with my previous pencil liner wearing away throughout the day but this is just perfect! They are also so easy to apply to the upper and lower lash lines and look great!

I will definitely be purchasing more of these liners as they are absolutely fabulous! I can't believe I didn't try them sooner! This is a big fat recommendation from me! :D
