I just try to put color into this grey world

Overlook - Lush Handmade Cosmetics

Publicerad 2014-07-02 08:59:40 i My Collection, Reviews, Swatches,

Lush was kind enough to send me some of their makeup that they carry, and I had no idea that they would send me this much!  So I got pretty stoked when I opened the package. Anywho

For those who are not familiar with Lush should know that this company makes all of their products out of fresh and organic ingredients, Are against animal testing and all of their products are vegeterian. They even tell you at the bottom of the product when it's made, by whom and when it expires. Which I think is just great! because it gives you a sense of when you're not supposed to use it anymore.
They most known for their soaps an bathbombs, and I think it wasn't that long ago they came out with the makeup.
First out I'll show you the creme eyeshadows that I got.
Left to right; Intuitiv (Intuitive), Vis (Wise), Sofistikerad (sophisticated)
Intuitiv (inutive) Is a shimmery lime green.
Vis (wise) is a matte olive green.
Sofistikerad (sophisticated) A shimmery taupe
All of the eyeshadows comes with a doe foot wand, and as you will see on the picture below it's quite short, and I've seen people complain about that. BUT I noticed that you can actually remove the wand so you don't have to fiddle around with the lid of you don't like that and it's easy to put back so it's not like you break it when you take it out. I myself don't find any trouble using it as it is.
All of the eyeshadows are made with softening and gentle products Like almond oil and cupuacu butter.
The rest of the ingredients are dependin on the color and the formula of the eyeshadow.
Left to right; Intuitiv (Intuitive), Vis (Wise), Sofistikerad (sophisticated)
These three eyeshadows are all vegan
You get 5g for 195 kr ($18.95)
Next we have the Lip creams
Left to right; Drivenhet (Drive), Perspektiv (not listed on the UK site), Kraft (power)
Drivenhet (drive) is a pinky purple with hints of shimmer
Perspektiv is a warm beige that suits most people and can also be used as a blush and a eyeshadow
Kraft (power) is a shimmery golden red
These do also come with a doe foot aplicatior and they glide on like a dream. My favourite is Kraft (power) even thoug I know I will mostly use it on photos and not when I'm going out since I'm not confident to wear this out.
The liquid lipsticks have a jojoba oil, rose wax and candellila wax base to soften dry lips, but also happen to carry the colour pigments incredibly well. This means your colour can be adjusted to however bold you like to wear it, and will stay put all day long.

All of the lipsticks are Vegan aswell

And the Eyeliners:
From Left to Right; Trygghet (Feeling Secure) Motivation, Frisk (Healthy), Lugn (calm)
Trygghet (feeling secure) is a dark purple eyeliner with a slight hint of fuschia shimmer
Motivation is a Shimmery teal color
Frisk (healthy) is a bright green color
Lugn ( Calm) is a light blue color
These unlike the lipsticks and eyeshadow has a thinner brush instead of a doe foot wand, And it's not so weird since these are eyeliners, imagine putting on eyeliner with the other applicator! Here I could find that the lid is a bit in the way, But again, I didn't have any problems with it when I tried these out.
To my surprise though; Lugn (calm) does stain the skin! which get's me a bit confused since it's a blue color. usually the purple and reds are the ones that stains not blue haha!
You can see here how short the wand is with the lid, but luckily you can take it out without problem.
All of the eyeliners are made with softening and gentle products Like almond oil and cupuacu butter.
The rest of the ingredients are depending on the color and the formula of the eyeliner I believe.
From Left to Right; Trygghet (Feeling Secure) Motivation, Frisk (Healthy), Lugn (calm)
An all of these are Vegan aswell.

And lastly we have the face products!:
Jackie Oates Colour Suppliment

"This is ideal for smoothing those with pale complexions that need soothing. It's made with oat milk as a base, which helps to calm skin down, to which we've added loads of nurturing shea butter, honey, aloe vera and glycerine to hydrate and even out tone. As pale skins need to be careful in the sunshine, we've added titanium dioxide. Mix a little with your favourite moisturiser and apply to clean skin evenly."

this is a nice foundation, It's the lightest they carry and it works really well on my pale skin. It's super light and you barely feel it on your face.
 It has light to medium coverage, so if you want to cover all of your belimshes up you'll need a concealer for that. It's supposed to work great on those who has natural red hair.

 I only have one complaint about this product, And it's not about the product in particular, but about the packaging. I'm not overly fond of poking my fingers into a jar when it comes to face products, so a bit better packaging would be nice, Although I think that if they had it in a pump bottle you would end up using way to much. Because you actually don't need much of this to cover your face, so don't be intimidated of how small the jar is.
This product however is not Vegan
You get 20 g for 145 kr ( £9.25)
Emotionell Briljans (Emotional Brilliance) Tranclucent Face Powder
"An ultra-fine translucent face powder with jojoba oil for a flawless finish to set make-up or even tone on bare skin. This light-reflecting powder with a pink undertone creates a matte finish. You don't have to sacrifice moisture to be shine-free; we've used lots of softening jojoba oil to nourish the skin and protect it from the elements."
This powder feel similar to ELF's HD powder, but at the same time not. It's softer. And the pink tone threw me off at first , but once I tried it i saw that it was nothing to worry about.
Once ahain with the packaging, I'd like to have some sort od a sifter in it, because it is fairly easy to pour up too much powder.
This powder is Vegan.
You get 8G for 159 kr ($18.95)

The lipsticks, eyeshadows and eyeliners came with this cute tag on them unfortunately some of them broke for me before I could take pictures of the whole "gang"
and this is what I was talking about above.  You get to see who did it, when they did, what batch it is and also when it expires. I think it's really cute, and it's also a nice thing to see. Sincde they actually hand make everyting they sell, Not by order, But everything you buy from them is made by one of them that works there, not a factory (except for the packaging) they're HAND MADE.
I hope you liked this, and tell me if you'd like to see more like this in the future :)
