Staying with shopping with a conscience, I've thought I'd share one of my top make up brands B cosmetics, made by Lush. The 'B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful' make up range is not only suitable for vegetarians but also vegans and is strictly against animal testing, but also some of the yummiest and most appealing ranges on the market. Not only do their products come in a wide range of colours, the packaging is also gorgeous and perfect for putting on show on your dressing table!
My top picks are:
The pressed eyeshadows are available in over 30 shades and are long lasting thanks to their base of almond oil, jojoba and rice bran. They also come in shimmer and matte tones. The jewelled pots are simply stunning and refills are also available- the ultimate in environmental and animal friendly make up! My favourites are 'Boogie', 'Belize' and 'Beatrix'
The jewelled heart shape tin of the Lip creams is simply gorgeous and the contents don't disappoint! Each is made from a conditioning base of shea butter, beeswax and jojoba and each is flavoured by either rose, chocolate and orange and finished with a dusting of gold leaf. What's more their available in 20 shades and there's one to suit all skin tones and palettes. For that 60's vibe, try 'Blast' with black flicked eyeliner or follow the stars and go for bold red lips with 'B Cause'.
Take a peek at this stunning cream foundation in a stunning glass bottle with metal shaped casing. Not only does the range come in 6 shades, its made with soothing rose petals to calm the skin and rice brain oil to make it last all day! For my pale skin, 'Binky' is a must!
These divine wooden carved pots hold a wealth of gorgeous glitter- perfect for that finishing touch! Its available in ten shades including bright jewel tones perfect for summer or the classic black glitter, which I'll be using with a wet brush to create a black glitter eyeliner!
And because a girl can never have too many brushes, they've created a range of jewel encrusted brushes including the make up bag essentials of an eyeliner brush, blusher and foundation brush!
The range also does a selection of beauty, hair and shower products, as well as fragrance- there's something for everyone (and they'd make the most perfect gifts for others- or yourself- there's no better gift than self gifting!)
