I was meeting a friend for lunch and our rendezvous point was Lush – dangerous, I know… Being out of Oxford for a couple of weeks meant that I hadn’t bought anything from Lush for a little while, so I allowed myself a budget of £15 to buy myself a little treat. I was surprised to see the From Dusk To Dawn Massage Bar was still in the shop, since I thought it was a limited edition for Valentines Day, and all the Lush people seemed as confused as I was, so I thought I’d grab another one in case they do eventually disappear! I also bought a mid-size bottle of Dirty Springwash Shower Gel, having been won over to it the last time I was in Lush on account of its dark mint, which is very similar to my discontinued favourite soap (although not the same: bring back Ice Blue!).
From Superdrug, I sought out Sleek’s Rose Gold blush after seeing it on many a beauty blog. This is, believe it or not, my first ever proper blush. I’ve often used Benefit’s Benetint or even a No7 lipstick to put a bit of colour in my cheeks, but never a purpose-made blush, so I’m excited to see how I get on with this pretty coral-gold blush!
Then while I was at the till I made the mistake of letting my eye get caught by Rimmel Pear Drop nail polish, a pretty minty-turquoise polish which I thought would quell my longing for spring colours. I’m actually pretty disappointed with this, though. It’s a very frosty green, with incredibly visible brushstrokes, but this shimmer wasn’t at all noticeable in the bottle. Also, it’s a lot greener than it appears in the picture – I really need to get a new camera, my phone is terrible at getting colours to read true. Still, the search for a plain mint green continues.
Do you think the Sleek blush is worth the hype? Oh, and can you recommend me a good springish mint green? I like the colour of the Illamasqua green speckle, but I don’t want the speckly bits!
