Lookbook: LUSH Space Girl Bath Bomb spacegirl

The product that motivated me to even walk into a LUSH for the very first time is still the same product I endear the most from LUSH Cosmetics…the bath bomb. At this point in my LUSH obsession, I have tried almost every single bath bomb throughout the years, from delectable and soothing to not that impressed. The Space Girl bath bomb is one of my top five favorite bath bombs now, and I thought I would share with you what it’s all about. Also, for those bath bomb virgins, you are about to get a crash course in pampering!

Space Girl Bath Bomb, by LUSH

Lookbook: LUSH Space Girl Bath Bomb space

Space Girl bath bomb is a 100% VEGAN bath bomb that is brand new to the LUSH Cosmetics family. This bath bomb was inspired by a song titled “Space Girl,” by The Imagined Village, and has a bit of a cult following. This bath bomb is shaped like Saturn, with “space dust,” which is obviously actually glitter. The scent is of blackcurrant sweeties, and it smells light, refreshing, and feminine.

The bath bomb itself smells like a mixture between fruit and candy. It’s sweet, but not overpowering, and leaves a light scent behind on your skin. As with all other LUSH bath bombs, Space Girl makes your bath water extremely soft and moisturizing for your skin.

How-To: Use a Bath Bomb

Step Three: Lay back and relax

On contact with water, bath bombs fizz like crazy, releasing the scent and all the great-for-your-skin essential oils. Within a couple of minutes, the entire bath bomb will have dissolved into the water, and you will be left with super soft, scented, hydrating bath water. Some of the LUSH bath bombs contain color in them, changing the color of your bath water (Big Blue bath bomb). Others, leave behind bits and pieces of essential herbs, such as lavender sprigs (Golden Slumber bath bomb). There is even a bath bomb to soothe tired, aching muscles (Fizzy O’Therapy bath bomb)! No matter what your preference or mood, LUSH has a bath bomb for everyone.

Some LUSH bath bombs are larger in size than the Space Girl bath bomb. Some are larger than your fist, and a lot of LUSH fanatics prefer to use an extremely sharp knife to cut their bath bombs in half so they last longer than one use. This is a great way to make bath bombs last longer! I am especially a fan of this method because there are no LUSH stores in my state, and sadly, I must travel three hours to my nearest store.

LUSH Cosmetics Space Girl Bath Bombs retail for $4.95 each, and can be purchased at your local LUSH location . You can also browse and purchase this product online by clicking the photograph and link below:

Here’s our newest Bath Bomb of astronomical proportions. We were inspired by The Imagined Village’s intriguing song Space Girl from their second album, Empire & Love. Shaped like Saturn with added space dust (aka glitter) and the refreshing scent of blackcurrant sweeties to make an intergalactic experience that can only be found in the tub. Lie back and enjoy the ride.

Benefit Benetint is one of Benefit’s oldest and most classic products. In fact, I talk to women who are in their forties who have used this product for decades. This product was released in 1976, and has been the bestselling lip and cheek stain since. It leaves a very natural rose tint to your skin and lips, and applies like a red-tinted water before it dries.

Holiday Dressing With MAKE UP FOR EVER

As we introduced to you a few weeks back , MAKE UP FOR EVER has created a set of must-have rock-inspired products for the holidays. Though the cases alone are cool enough to make me want to buy them without seeing what’s inside, we figured it couldn’t hurt to share some expert tips from their education manager, Erin McCarthy. After all, it’s what’s inside the makeup bag that really counts, right? Using the Rock For Ever products, follow Erin’s tips to get their favorite looks:

Holiday Dressing With MAKE UP FOR EVER Dany+1 smoky eye bronze Holiday Dressing With MAKE UP FOR EVER Dany+2 smoky eye bronze “Start with a medium iridescent grey shadow (Eye Shadow #82) on the entire eyelid, blending up past the crease and smudged across the lower lash line. Intensify the eyes with the deepest black shadow you can find (Diamond Shadow #307 is great with its micronized sparkles). Apply this deep black shadow in a thick line across the upper lash line and smudge with a brush into the iridescent gray and across the lower lash line. As the colors blend together you’ll get a smooth blend from deep sparkling black to soft iridescent gray. The effect is a classy smoky look with a hint of glitz, perfect for any holiday party.”
Holiday Dressing With MAKE UP FOR EVER P272601 hero smoky eye bronze
“MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Rock For Ever Palette is a must-have because it includes a deep black diamond shadow and three neutral shimmering shades to create countless variations of this look—from a soft metallic gray to the most intense black smoky eye, or even a bronze smoky eye.”

“Want to rock this look in a subtle way? Go for a metallic liner. Our Travel Aqua Eyes Set comes with five great shades to try this season. Apply a black liner across your upper lash line and pair it with a silver, bronze, gold, or iridescent steel grey liner placed right on top of it. The black liner along the lash line will frame your eyes while the subtle metal liner will add extra glitz for the holiday season!”
