Sunkissed Sculpt & Glow | Review

Sunkissed Sculpt & Glow Kit
 Today I have a review of a relatively new product from Sunkissed, their 'Sculpt & Glow*' Contour kit £4.99. 
I have tried a bronzer by Sunkissed before, which I already have a review up of on my blog (you can find it here) so was excited to try out this new product. 
Sunkissed Sculpt & Glow Kit
Firstly the kit comes with a 'Sculpt' shade, used for contouring and a 'Glow' shade, used for highlighting. 
The contour shade is perfect for using to define cheek bones, the sides of your nose and jaw line. Unlike some contour products, this adds depth to your face without the usual orange tinge.

The highlight shade is used to highlight cheek and brow bones for a brighter, uplifted look. Some highlights have a chunky glitter finish, which can be unnatural for everyday use but I love this highlight as it has a natural shimmer that is find more suitable.

Overall I love this little contour kit, it's very affordable, the two shades are great and it has a sleek and compact design! 

Do you have a favourite contour palette/kit? If so what is it?! 
Let me know below in the comments.

Easter at Lush | Haul

Today I am back with another Lush Haul! My last post was also a Lush Haul (which you can find here) and contained some products from the standard Bath products at Lush but today I have two products from the Limited Edition Easter range! 
As Easter is this weekend, I thought it would be perfect to show you two of the products I have from the Easter selection as the products won't be around for long! 

The first product I have is the 'UltraViolet' Bubble Bar £4.95. It's used by taking a chunk and crumbling it under running water, 
creating heaps of bubbles. It has a refreshing Violet scent, just like Parma Violet sweets! 
Lush generally say that it will give two generous baths but I personally can get around 8 decent baths from a bubble bar this size, so is great value for money. 
If you prefer bubbles in your bath, this is the product for you! 

The second and final product I have is the 'Fluffy Egg' Bath Bomb £2.95. This is a one use Bath Bomb, used by simply dropping into a bath of water and watching it fizz away.

This product shares the same sweet scent, as the much loved 'Snow Fairy Shower Gel' that only makes an appearance at Christmas time. So is defiantly something worth stocking up on if you're in need of a Snow Fairy fix! 

The only thing I would say about bath bombs, is that they don't create any bubbles but adding a small amount of a bubble bar to the bath should fix this if you like bubbles!
Lush do have a full range of products in their East range which can be found here or by popping instore to take a look but be quick... the products won't be around for long! 

Have you tried any of the products from the Lush Easter Range?

Small Lush Haul | Lush Cosmetics

I'm a huge fan of the bath products from 'Lush Cosmetics' so today I thought I'd share with you, four bath bombs from their standard range. 
I haven't tried any of these bath bombs before, so this post is a great way to share my first impressions and opinions on the scent and appearance.

'The Experimenter' £3.95:
This is one of the more colourful bath bombs by Lush. It contains four bright sections, which are meant to create a rainbow of colours in the bath. 

With this bath bomb it is quite hard to work out and describe the scent but on the website it says it contains 'Vanilla and Tonka absolute'.
I would though, say that this has an aquired scent and is definitely worth having a sniff of in store before buying.

'Frozen' £3.95:
A bright blue bath bomb, I believe is inspired by the film 'Frozen'.
The bomb contains 'Grapefruit, Rose and Neroli Oil' sounding quite refreshing. 
It gives bath water a blue hue with a fine shimmer, very fitting with its name but should give a nice relaxing bath.

'Avobath' £3.50
This bath bomb has a plain design compared to the other two but has a refreshing lemon scent, that reminds me of sherbet! 
It contains fresh avocado, so is hydrating and its lemon scent is from the Lemongrass oil that it contains.

I think this bath bomb would be great to use in the morning before a busy day because of its uplifting, fresh scent!

That's the end of my Small Lush Haul. I'm planning on posting full indept posts of each of the bath bombs, when I use them, to show how they are whilst in the bath, how they left my skin feeling and giving my overall impression! 

Have you used any of these bombs from Lush? And would you recommend them?
