LUSH Haul February 2016

Hi loves, today I have a haul post to share with you. It has been such a long time since I actually posted a haul on my blog. So I thought today would be perfect! My boyfriend surprised me and ordered a bunch of goodies from LUSH. I have such a guilty pleasure when it comes to bath products, and LUSH is one of my favorite stores. My favorite items from LUSH are their bath bombs and bubble bars! 

These are the items he ordered for me:

  • Intergalactic bath bomb- which this bath bomb includes a mix of bright neon colors and refreshing peppermint. I am literally in love with the scent. I am a huge fan of peppermint. 
  • Sex Bomb bath bomb- this is my all time favorite bath bomb. It was one of the first bath bombs that I have ever tried and I love it. It has such an amazing scent and I love the little petals that come out of the bomb. 
  • Butterball bath bomb- this is also one of my favorite bath bombs. I have purchased so many of these. It has a vanilla scent and it has chunks of creamy cocoa butter inside of it. This bath bomb leaves my skin feeling so soft. I love it so much! 
  • Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb- this will be the first time for me to try this one! I love the light blue color. This bath bomb has a lavender scent and is supposed to be calming to help you fall asleep. I can't wait to try this one. 
  • Unicorn Horn bubble bar- I am seriously in love with the look of this bubble bar. I love the fun pastel colors. This bubble bar has lavender oil mixed into it. I love using bubble bars because you can get more then one bath out of them. They are easy to break up into pieces.
Let me know in the comments what your favorite thing from LUSH is. I just noticed that the website now has their Easter collection so I may have to place an order for some of those goodies as well!

Palladio Pop Shine Brilliant Lip Balms in Socialite and Get Real

PR Sample|Affiliated Links

Hi loves, I recently received a couple of the new Palladio Pop Shine Brilliant Lip Balms, and I couldn't wait to share them with you! I have them in the shades Socialite and Get Real. They also come in 4 other shades as well. I have tried a lot of Palladio products in the past and I always seem to enjoy them. So I was excited to try these new balms. 

Socialite is a beautiful pinky coral which will be a wonderful color for the Spring and Summer. Get Real is a typical brown nude which is great for everyday wear. 

The Pop Shine Brilliant Lip Balms claim to have soft, creamy, bold colors and also have a moisturizing feel on the lips. When swatching them I did notice how soft the texture was. They also had a lot of pigmentation. You can build up the color to get an opaque look on the lips. I loved the colors but they are not very long lasting on the lips. You do need to apply them every couple of hours or so, which is typically when it comes to most balms. 

These balms retail for $7.00 each and can be found at www.palladiobeauty.com. 

MAKE UP FOR EVER 9 Artist Shadow Palette Volume 3 Florals Spring 2016

Hi loves, today I have a very exciting post on the new MAKE UP FOR EVER 9 Artist Palette. This is the volume 3 palette which contains floral shades and is here for Spring 2016. I am a huge fan of the MUFE shadows, and this palette is literally perfect for Spring. It comes with a lot of bright pastel colors that are perfect for Spring. I don't have a palette like this in my collection, so I was excited to play around with it. And let's just say, I am in love. 

This palette comes with 9 different shades that each contain .05oz of product. This palette currently retails for $44.00 and can be found at www.sephora.com. Now lets move on to the shades that are in this palette:

  • ME-230 which is a metallic peacock blue
  • I-544 which is a iridescent pink granite (this shade is one of my favorites in the palette as well)
  • ME-930 which is a metallic black purple
  • D-236 which is a diamond lagoon blue
  • I-804 which is a iridescent golden pink
  • I-918 which is a lavender (one of my favorite shades in the whole entire palette)  
  • S-404 which is a satin straw yellow
  • ME-512 which is a metallic golden beige
  • I-528 which is a iridescent pearl
I think they did a great job with adding a variety of different finishes. I wish they would have added at least one matte shade just for like a good transition color, but that's okay. I really enjoyed how well all of the shades swatched. My favorites were the iridescent shades. I love the texture of these shadows because they feel almost wet when you touch it, but it blends out into a nice powder. I also loved the pigmentation. The quality of these shadows are just incredible. 

If you are looking for a great palette to add to your collection this Spring, I would highly recommend this one. You can create so many fun pastel looks, and pastels are always a huge trend in the Spring. I can't wait to continue to play around with this palette and create more fun looks!
