Lush Handmade Cosmetics Colour Supplement

I've spent more than a few hours poring over Lush's website, entertained by the clever descriptions and glorious miracle bath products.  I'd never ordered anything, though, because paying $6 shipping on a single $5 bath bomb kind of boggles my mind.  The nearest Lush store is unfortunately three hours away; if there were a Lush store closer to my area you better believe I'd be in there at least once a week (Lush!  Come to Birmingham, AL!).  Then one night I discovered Lush's Colour Supplements and couldn't resist clicking the order button.

The Light Pink Colour Supplement designed for "pink cheeks and pale features" sounded perfect for my complexion, and the fact that "fresh rose petal infusion" is the number one ingredient was also a definite selling point.  Rose petal infusion calms redness, so right then I was sold on this product.  Plus, it's multi-purpose.  You can mix it with moisturizer for a light tint, or apply it directly as a full coverage concealer.

It took a while for my order to arrive, but the Colour Supplement had to be freshly mixed so I didn't mind too much.  I was a little uneasy about ordering it without having tested it first (ahem, listen up Lush and set up shop in Alabama), but once it arrived I immediately swatched it on my hand and knew it really would be perfect.

The Light Pink shade matches my skin flawlessly.  It is literally the exact color of my skin, plus it smells like roses.  It also smells very clean and fresh, which I've never experienced with concealer or foundation before.  Lush's reputation for "fresh handmade cosmetics" really is something special.  The container seems absurdly small, but really, a little bit goes a long way.  This will definitely last a while.

The package directions urge you to mix the Colour Supplement with a little moisturizer on the back of your hand before applying it on your face, but since I've been using Oh Hush face oil instead of traditional cream moisturizers lately I went ahead and applied it directly from the container on areas I needed the most coverage.  The formula is pigmented enough to achieve full coverage, but thin enough to blend quickly and easily without feeling gunky or like you've clogged up your pores.

I hear Lush's moisturizers are pretty incredible, too.  I've never actually heard one bad thing about this company.  Lush fans--tell me about your favorite products!  Who else loves their Colour Supplements?


  1. This sounds like lovely stuff! I've not actually tried anything from the Lush range, I've heard so many great things about their products though! Have added this to my list of things to check out when I'm next near a store. Thanks for the review x
