Lush, Mac and Book Haul.

I realise I have been posting more hauls, and none of me actually demonstrating the products. That shall soon come. Promise.

LUSH

I took a trip to Lush yesterday to purchase some items that were missing from my life. I purchased;

Lemony Flutter - Cuticle butter (1st time buy)
Honey I washed the kids - Soap (2nd time purchase)
Curly Wurly - Shampoo (1st time buy)
American Cream - Conditioner (1st time buy)

Sample: Coconut powder deodorant.

I was also given Big shampoo for free, it was a lovely surprise. Thank you Lush for such good customer service. :) This is my 2nd tub!



I originally went in to get 'big' shampoo but decided that 'curly wurly' was more suited to my hair type after consulting the sa. I assumed it was for curly hair, and was assured it's for anybody who needs moisture in their hair. It's a pinky colour and has lots of coconut chunks in it.

I explained that I was trying to grow my hair, and was advised that I should wash my hair with 'curly wurly' one day, 'big' the next and 'curly wurly & big' mixed together another day. So that my hair would keep guessing?! Will let you know how that goes!


MAC CONCEALERS

The Benefit boing that I purchased recently isn't cutting it. I think they have changed the formula AGAIN, and somehow it doesn't sit properly, it just cakes, settles and looks disgusting.

So, I headed to Mac as most of you said that they were your favourite concealers to use. I purchased the 'Select moisture cover' in NW30 for under my eyes and the 'studio finish concealer' in NC35 to cover blemishes on my face. I have never tried these concealers before, the only Mac concealer I have tried is the 'Select cover up'. These better preform!


BOOKS

I also took a trip to Borders, they are closing down!!! :( They are in administration so all books are on sale. I grabbed these;

The black book of style - Nina Garcia
The art of Indian head massage - Mary Atkinson
Secrets of youth and beauty (aromatherapy for natural rejuvenation) - Daniele Ryman

Will let you know if they are amazing once I have finished reading them!

I definitely want a review of the Coconut Powder deodorant!
Lush has indeed great customer service, they know how to keep us happy!

Sooshi said...

great haul! I really want to try Big and I love lemony flutter!

I didn't love Nina Garcia's book though. =/

First of all - LOVE your blog.

Second- I have curly wurly shampoo and it's pretty awesome. The texture is weird, but I like it-because it has that coconut or something in it, so it feels odd rubbing it in your hair. Sometimes it tends to frizz my hair when I use it, and I have tp use more products, but could just be my hair :-)

Lemme know if ya like it.

Great haul. I love both of those concealers! Great Lush goodies, I bought American Cream recently and wasn't that impressed but looking forward to hearing your thoughts on everything. xx

Lizeth said...

I've been meaning to checkout the BIG shampoo.Seems very prominsing :)
Good luck with your concealers.I'm not sure if they have CG where you live but if so, you may want to give the concealer a try.I wrote an entry on it yesterday.Creamy and covers great for under the eye.

nice haul hun :)
I have just finished my bottle of american cream, the smell lingers till the next wash, but I didn't notice any breat improvement in the condition of my hair,so I will not repurchase. MAC concealers-one word - great ;)

Cheryl♥ said...

glamour rouge said...

*~mad munky~* said...

american cream smells gorgeous :o)

TalluluhBella said...

I love the Lemony Flutter Butter!

Would love to know your thoughts on the Curly Wurly shampoo :)

Aleksis said...

Hmmm wasn't too big a fan of the moisturecover BUT it was on top of a different one so that could be why it creased...my personal favorite is MUFE lift... uhhh mazing...get a sample!

Christina Tal-Qurru said...

If your looking for a moisturizing conditioner try Retread! It is amazing. It has soy milk and yogurt in it and makes my hair feel AMAZINGGGG. And try lemony flutter as a lip balm too! Its really great on the lips!!! And the coconut deodorant is great to use over your normal deodorant as a back up. Especially if you sweat a lot, but its smells really good!
Hope that helps!

Muhsine said...

Thank you for your comments girlies.
will do full reviews soon!

@Aleksis wore it this evening didnt crease on me. :) x

@Christina Tal-Qurru ooo great tips. yes i think prefer retread too, thats the strongest conditioner, i feel like i need to use alot of product to achieve the softness i desire. x

~*Mare*~ said...

I love American Cream, Lemony Flutter is ok...kind of overrated. I definitely want to try the Curly Wurly and Big shampoos next up.

tina_mbc said...

Lovely haul! Please let us know what you think of the concealers... I use Select Cover Up for under the eyes myself, but I think I need a lighter shade now that I 'm mega pale, so any reviews could come in handy! :)

lemony flutter is so nice on the lips overnight..i swear it feels like i still have it on, when i wake up in the morning.

i tried to look for the shampoo you just picked up, while i was in lush tonight..didn't see it..but i'll check again :)

ladyb said...

I'm a big believer in switching up shampoos and conditioners too. I'm looking forward to your review on the lush range.

I love the book haul - very interesting picks ::)

Little Rus said...

I must try those LUSH shampoos.. I've been meaning to do it for ages and can't get my act together. :)
Would love to read a review on "Secrets of youth and beauty" I love essential oils and have a tiny collection of my favourites at home.
Have a wonderful day!

Really want to try the Lush Big shampoo, I have the Curly Wurly & its ok (not a fan of the chunks). The lemon fluttery is awesome!
