I guess you are wondering why I am sad. I found out that Lush was discontinuing some of my favorite products, Yummy Yummy Yummy Shower Wash Cream. The scent is delicious fragrance of strawberries and cream. Super Nova Bath Bombs that is a luscious fizzing bomb with the sent of a champagne cocktail. The underlying fragrance and essential oils of Orange, Limes, and Cognac. It has festive confetti . OK, it leaves the bathtub a bit of a mess but the experience is wonderful. One of my favorite soaps I Should CoCo. It smells like a tropical dream,with the fragrance of fresh coconut and a slight bit of orange. It has exfoliating properties with real coconut throughout. My beloved Tramp Shower Gel wonderfully exotic , mysterious and sensual fragrance of patchouli and oak moss. My favorite things are going away. I am sure that Lush will develop more incredible products, but I am still sad my favorites are leaving.

I have been using Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Ultra- Hydrating Foundation for two months. From the very first application, it went on so incredibly smooth. I used two colors Caramel for contouring and Honey Beige as the foundation. It is a unique creamy whipped foundation. It endured my hectic schedule and lasted all day with just spot touch-ups of powder. This foundation has 14 hour hydration It felt light, no creasing in my problem area around my eyes and the sides of my mouth. I still have normal to oil skin, and it was still light and hydrating. Maybelline outdid themselves with this foundation. It comes in 10 shades. My hope is that they will expand there color range. It is definitely my new holy grail foundation.

I started using these product on June 27th. I have been using these consistently since then. The L'Oreal Lash Boosting Serum was a complete fail for me. I haven't seen any growth or additional thickness to my eyelashes. The L'Oreal Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara was only average. Nothing to right home about, though I had high hopes for it given that I have be using L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara for years and I have always returned to it. If anyone has had amazing results, please leave me a comment below.
I have missed doing my blog. During the course of early spring and all of the summer, I have spent a great deal of my time in the doctors office. I have a back injury that was making me crazy. Also, a family member is ill, and I have been focused on these two issue. All is well and I am back now and I have a lot of products that I want to review. New looks for Fall 2010 that I want to share with you and answer any questions that you might have. Hope you are having a great week.
