'Lush' face of the day

I wanted to wear something light today. You know the feeling you have on a lazy day yet want to perk yourself up by evening your skin tone. Now I usually use MAC Face and Body to do that however I have been loving some new stuff from Lush that I have been using from a while. 

I am wearing Colour Supplement in Dark Yellow from Lush mixed with their Imperialis Moisturiser to make a tinted moisturiser of my liking and consistency. I use more moisturiser and a pea sized amount of the Colour Supplement to make mine. You can of course change the ratio depending on the intensity you want to achieve. 

It looks so dewy yet natural in daylight and lets your skin show through. It instantly perked up my complexion without feeling heavy. Something you won't be afraid to wear when the sun hits(hopefully soon!). 

A mini-review on both these products.

Lush do a lot of different moisturisers catered towards various skin tones, however I got Imperialis as its targeted towards combination skin tone to balance it out in areas where its dry and oily accordingly. 

It contains Lavender to balance the skins oil production, Orange flower to tone the skin and St John's wort to calm down any irritations. I have combination-sensitive skin and this works just right. I think most of you would fall into this category due to it bordering on both sides. 

It looks like strawberry yogurt, good enough to eat! 45grams priced at £11.45 is just right for this. It looks very light but you really only need half a tea spoon sized amount to cover a full face. 

I have had this Colour Supplement since a few months now. I originally bought it out of boredom whilst rummaging in a Lush store at Liverpool Street. I did not quite like it at first because it is very concentrated and me being me, I did not follow instructions and used it directly from the pot for full coverage.

Well it did give me full coverage but it felt too heavy and kept sliding off my face. 

Now when I used it mixed with the Lush Imperialis as a tinted moisturizer it worked like a dream! You need only a pea sized amount of this baby for it to make you your custom made tinted moisturiser. I got the Colour Supplement for around £7 and it's lasting me ages. 

What do you recommend from Lush?

I really like their Grease Lightning gel to combat breakouts because it's also really soothing on the skin due to the aloe vera. I think I'd quite like to try their colour supplement now though!

I can't stand Lush but I have to say, products like this do pique my interest.

I was also naughty and just tried the color supplement straight from the jar.

I like Lush Fresh masks =) I like their cleansers too, such as Herbalism, Aqua Marina...

I was abit scared to try this product when I first saw it as I see lush as a bath product shop and I did not like the only facial product I tried as it was horrible.

I've only ever bought the body products from Lush. Also bought the Henna blocks which I just did not get. It was a pain in the arse, needed to chip away at it which took ages and was an absolute mess. BAH!

I did spot the concealer in there the other day. £7 sounds like a bit of a bargain, especially if it works. Wonder if it will suit my skin tone? xo

What a gorgeous finish. I have been thinking of trying their colour supplement. I've seen a few people use it to 'blank out' their lips before applying lipstick. I wish my skin was in good enough condition to wear a tinted moisturizer.

I've looked at the colour supplements and thought they required to much faffing around. I guess once you get the hang how much need it's fairly easy?

@Skin Scrubs - I guess that's because they are quite pigmented and that's their main sort of 'problem' as we don't come across many pigmented product these days.

It works lovely as a tinted moisturiser in my opinion.

@Halima - Unfortunately they don't cater for Asian/tanned skintones much. This one is a tad bit lighter for me but I don't mind it. If you're comfortable wearing shades like NC30, this should be fine :)

I'm a lush addict, so I am definitely checking this out :) I have really dry skin and I live in a super-dry and cold area so my HG from lush is definitely Buffy the backside slayer. I can't live without mine, simply put. Also love all of their fresh face masks (love lettuce and brazened honey the most) and Jasmine and Henna Fluff eaze (hair mask) is also good.
