My sample looked nothing like this. Obvisouly is it a tiny sliver, and not the whole block, but my soap only had a few little sand grains. Nothing over the top like this looks. So it does have some exfoliation, but my little sample didnt, so I cant comment much on theat part of the soap.
The scent is SUPER SWEET LEMON! Not like a tart, citrus-y lemon, but really sweet. The most perfect way to describe the smell is it reminds me of those super cheap lollipops you get at the bank when you are a little kid. The lemon flavor. Lol. And if you were never lucky enough to
It lathers up very nicely, like a soap should, and rinsed off very clean. The scent lingered for a little bit and was lovely. If you like anything lemon scented, you will definitely love this soap.
This soap has no exfoliation to it. Just an everyday soap. I really loved the scent of this soap. Although it isnt described as so on the site, it smells lik eucalyptus to me. Which is a scent I love. Most of the LUSH products I have, the scents are SUPER strong and over powering, but not with this soap. And I like that. Again, this is just a basic soap. Lathers nicely, rinses off clean and leaves a VERY faint scent on the skin. The smell of this is very relaxing, but its not a soap I would use daily. More so when I want a relaxing bath.
More LUSH reviews coming in the next few days! keep and eye out for them!
Til next time!

I had time to actually do my makeup, and take a "decent" picture.
Natural sunlight. Still washes my skin out, but at least the eyeshadow looks true to life.
- UDPP all over lid up to brow
- 88 palette, light gold on inner lid and inner lower lash line
- 88 palette, deeper gold on outer lid and outer lower lash line
- MAC Shroom to highlight and blend out lid colors
- MAC Zoomlash mascara
- MAC Grand Duo is Earth to Earth
- LIPS = nothing, because i think pink lips look bad with gold colors.

When i first heard about this collection i was super excited! I LOVEEEE blushes and face products. Way more than eye stuff. Granted i love eyeshadows and doing eye makeup, i uch more prefer "painting" my face!
I wanted to order all of them, but they were $22.50/each. Yeah, right. I decided to only order the ones i really loves and would use often.
Typical MAC packaging. No special LE stuff here. Half is a solid mineralized color, half is a marbled mineralized side with vein-ing of other colors to compliment the solid "blush" side. Gorgeous to look at.
Amazing. The pigmentation of these are great. Definitely why MAC promoted to duo fiber 188. They are super smooth and blend beautifully.
YESSSS it is there. No it is not a chunky shimmer. There is no glitter in these. It is a very strong pearlescent sheen. Absolutely stunning!
Overall, i dont have much to say about these. My favorite is Earth to Earth. Will be a summer staple for sure. Love Rock is next! Awesome purple/pink. Moon River is my least favorite, although i still love it. It is just very light, so i feel it will look best layered over a darker cream base. If you love shimmering, pigmented, fun cheek stuff, you should get these.
I absolutely love everyone i got!
Til next time

I am constantly browsing Lush's site, oogling over all the goodies! But not being able to see them in person (and smell them) has made me not order them due to the price.
Right now, Lush has a super offer where you get a ton of stuff for only 20 dollars. Lush's night in for two.
I also ordered a sample of the Therapy Massage bar and full size Rockstar soap!
Im so excited for my order to come in and i will post a detailed review on everything i bought.
My order included:
- Therapy Massage Bar Sample
- Rockstar Soap (full size)
- The night in for two package that includes:
- 2 Muslin flannels
- 2 Ultrabland Cleansers
- 1 face mask
- 2 toner tabs
- 2 face moisturizers
I chose Angels on bare skin, tee tree toners, and imperils moisturizer.
Im so excited and can't wait to receive my order in the mail. The only issue i have with Lush is the OUTRAGEOUS shipping price and time!

I have a quick question.
I am keeping all of the prizes for the winner a secret right now like i said before. But they will be beauty/makeup related prizes.
BUUTTTTT i have a question.
I have the "new" Studio Sculpt foundation in NC25. Now i know some people LOVE this foundation, but it DOES NOT work well with my skin. It didnt break me out, but i just love my SFF much more. So should i include it in my prize package? There is about 98% left. And its just sitting in my traincase.
Should i include it?
