Charlotte Matheson, LUSH make-up artist, suggests using foundations formulated with vegetable oil and not mineral oil, “The new Colour Supplements are made with soya oil and bran oil which are light and fine vegetable oils that will carry the pigment into the skin without congesting it in any way. They also have a fresh rose petal infusion base, which soothes and softens the skin.” (LUSH.com)Four shades to choose from:
Light Pink lightest shade for fair of face and rosy of the cheek complexions. This is good for all-purpose colour.
Light Yellow A natural rose petal base in a paler shade to match ivory skin tones (with a slight yellow undertone). It is helpful to cancel out uneven redness in skin.
Dark Yellow A natural rose petal base with a deeper shade for olive as well as light Asian skinned beauties.
Dark Pink darkest colour for those with dark skin or for anyone with a tan – it has a very deep red undertone.
For reference: I use the Light Yellow as concealer, Light Pink as an eye lid base for eyeshadow, and Dark Yellow as my base. The LUSH Colour Supplements will give a light coverage, great for everyday not be used as a full-coverage foundation. Think of it as a healthy looking skin tint for your face, a sheer tinted moisturizer, perfect for these hot, humid Summer days.

-100% pure freeze dried Collagen-Fibre eye pads (infused with Myoxinol, hibiscus flower extract which relaxes facial wrinkles) are placed under eyes.
-under eye area is pre-moistened with the Skin Energizing Gel (which I like to use on its own too)
-the Collagen Pads are moistened with water
-leave on for 15-20 minutes & throw out
That's me sans makeup with the eye pads on! Go figure I finally post a pic of me & all you see is my eye(s)...
As you can see in the pic I do have dark circles but its actually an improvement, the puffiness is reduced. The kit comes with 4 sets of two eye pads of which I'm already finished so I'm going to purchase more as I love this product.
For more info & where to purchase visit Reviva Labs

Ladies..today lets look below the neck, more specifically cleavage. I swear these bras will make your puppies into doggies, ok I'm not a large breasted woman and these new bras from La Senza's Fall 2010 collection will boost your cup size atleast two sizes. For me that's great as I don't have much and sometimes certain outfits need that extra oomph factor.
The Perfectly Me™ Push Up bra (pink shade) can be worn 3 ways; classic, criss-cross, and halter. Comes with removable push up.
