LUSH Lip Scrub: The Kiss

LUSH Lip Scrub: The Kiss

Have you ever tried a cruelty free LUSH Lip Scrub? I love them!. My favorites are Bubble Gum and Popcorn. Last year, I tried to purchase the vegan LUSH Lip Scrub The Kiss, and it was completely sold out.  LUSH Lip Scrub The Kiss
So, here’s my warning (to myself), and my readers, I’ve heard from the LUSH staff that The Kiss Valentine’s Day lip scrub sells out every year. So, you best be getting your order in online, or stop in soon to try The Kiss.  It’s pink, and will give your lips a little bit of a tint. It’s a caster sugar scrub that has a sweet mandarin flavor. In addition, sugar, a touch of sea salt and even edible red hearts will leaving your lips very soft, and smooth! It’s a great lip treatment, and it’s under ten dollars!

Has anyone tried a LUSH Lip Scrub? If so which one(s)?

 

I written about LUSH products many times. At the link, you’ll find the latest one.

Valentine’s Day Nail Art: Milani & 100% Pure Polish

Valentine’s Day Nail Art

February 1st means it’s time for some Valentine’s Day nail art! I have used two brands that are, of course, cruelty free: 100% Pure and Milani. In addition, they are both Leaping Bunny approved brands. 100% Pure is a vegan nail polish. I used 100% Pure Horsetail Base Coat. Then, I applied two coats of the shade Innocence. It’s a really pretty, soft, pink. Then, I used Milani for some of my nail tips. I also used it for the glitter in the shade Disco Lights.

I love both nail polish companies because the nail polish is extremely easy to apply, the shades are so pretty, and the price is always reasonable!

No surprise, but it’s always very interesting to see how different a manicure looks in different lights. The first photo of my Valentine’s Day Nail Art was taken during the daylight hours. This is my favorite, because it shows just how delicate the pink shade is, and the lovely glitter polish.

This is one day later, and it’s in the evening, trying to find some good lighting for you to see the colors and the glitter of my Valentine’s Day Nail Art.

Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray Review

Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray

While getting my hair done at the hairdresser, I read an article that Mitch Stone recommened using Texturizing Spray if you want to add more volume to your hair. So, after Mitch Stone Texturinzing Spray arrived in the mail, I was anxious to try it out. I’m sure you’ve heard of Mitch Stone as he’s been in the business over two decades. He’s an acclaimed hairstylist who works in film, television, editorial, advertising and of course, on the fashion circuit. He was part of the Oscar-winning hairstylist team on ‘Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events.’ 

Since it’s being featured, of course, you already know that the Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray is cruelty free. What really intrigued me is that Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray can be used on all hair types. You can safely use Mitch Stone if you not only have normal hair, but colored hair, or fine hair. In addition, you can apply the Texturzing Spray on wet or dry hair. I have used the Texturizing Spray several times already, and love it!

It’s very easy to use. I simply pumped the spray all throughout my wet hair, and while I concentrated it at the roots, I also worked it all the way to the ends of my hair. Then I blow-dried my hair. I loved that it gave my hair volume and texture, but it wasn’t at all stiff. In other words, it not only did not look like I had sprayed a ton of product on hair, it also didn’t feel that way. It left my hair looking glossy, and it did give my hair volume. All that is due to fact that the Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray is enriched with VCompS, a mixture of vitamins (E, C, B3, B5, B6), minerals, and papaya.

Take a look at the above photo. This was taken at the end of the evening (hence, my Hubby trying to find some decent lighting in the house). Even at the end of the day, the Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray gave my hair a beautiful shine, my hair had volume and bounce, and you can see a nice wave was still present. I added an arrow to the photo, just in case! I don’t like when products leave not only an obvious look of product in the hair, but also, when you run your fingers through, you can feel it. Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray was just perfect for my hair. Check out the Mitch Stone website to learn more and find out where you can purchase products: http://www.mitchstonehair.com/

Treat Collection Nail Polish Follow-Up

Treat Collection Nail Polish Follow-Up

I purchased a Treat Collection Nail Polish, which is cruelty free, vegan, and five-free. I previously posted about the Treat Collection nail polish shade A Special Something, and as I wrote, I decided to put the polish to the test.

After the first day, I found that Treat Collection Nail Polish was accurate in their advertisement as being fast drying, and with a fabulous glossy sheen. I applied two coats, and it did indeed dry fast, and it most definitely had a fabulous shine! The photo below is without any top coat at all!

I added a top coat to test out the claim of being long lasting. After four days, except for some minor scuffing (which I am sure is due to working, and being a Mom doing activities with my two and four-legged children), the polish looked great! So, I worked on some nail art to hide anything that wasn’t quite perfect. Here’s an update.

Treat Collection Nail Polish

In addition to the beautiful shade and shine, I agree with the Treat Collection Nail Polish claim that it is long lasting. Check out my photos and let me know what you think.

 

First, I tried some nail art using FingerPaints, which is a Vegan Nail Polish, in black and red glitter. Then, for Friday night, (Saturday night we had a snowstorm so we stayed in), I decided to add some rhinestones to my nail. As you can see, the rhinestone photo is a different color red. That’s due to the fact that it was indoors, due to the dark conditions pre-snowstorm.

ColourPop Cosmetics Puppy Love

ColourPop Cosmetics Puppy Love

ColourPop Cosmetics, the cruelty free beauty company from Los Angeles, California has a beautiful shade cruelty free and vegan shade that I’d like to tell you about. The shade is called Puppy Love, and is described as a soft peach with pink & gold duo chrome in a pearlized finish. Sounds really pretty, right? The best part is that there is no need to feel guilty about another beauty purchase as ALL of the proceeds from the sale of the Puppy Love shade will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society, and their effort to “save them all.”

Just don’t take too long to think about purchasing Puppy Love, as this is a limited edition product. It’s only $5.00!

ColourPop Cosmetics

I love the Cosmetic’s philosophy: “We think that whole barrier between fancy and affordable is absolute nonsense. That’s why all of our products have luxury formulas at prices that won’t break the bank.”

Here is the website for ColourPop Cosmetics: https://colourpop.com/

In case you’re not familar with Best Friends Animal Society, it’s an organization that works with shelters, rescue groups and members nationwide to end the killing of dogs and cats in shelters—and Save Them All.

Let me know if you’re going to pick up Puppy Love!
