Lush is known for its girly-meets-hippie mash-up bath and body line, so when I heard they were adding some color, I just thought it would be some patchouli scented lip gloss or something crazy like that. I didn’t, however, expect that they would formulate a version of the (soon-to-be discontinued??) Sensual Skin Enhancer from Kevyn Aucoin which got a lot of love from Makeup Artists for its versatility and complete coverage. How is this even possible that the company that formulates Bath Bombs with saccharine colors and off the wall names could come up with something that could potentially land its way in my professional kit?
If you can’t already tell, I’m nuts about their new Colour Supplements, 4 thick foundation-meets-concealer-meets-tinted moisturizer wonders that let you completely customize your coverage. Before we get into all that, check out 3 of the 4 shades (light pink not included).
I’ve been using the Dark Yellow one by mixing most of it on the back of my hand with my daily moisturizer but leaving a bit unmixed. I apply it (mixed) onto my face section by section using my fingers and then pressing it in using a sponge. I then apply the unmixed portion with a concealer brush in the places where I need a little more coverage . I didn’t use powder to set it but the natural coverage lasted all day long without separating.
I didn’t expect this much out of it (and not just because its first ingredient is Rose Petal Infusion either.) Foundations that have lots of coverage need to blend in and sit well on the skin so it’s invisible, a difficult feat that many department store lines don’t even get right. It’s a small pot, but the pigment is dense so you’ll get a lot of use out of it. Oh, and it’s only $14.
Lush, you’re totally forgiven for naming a Bath Bomb Fizzy O’Therapy, Colour Supplement is your official Get Out of Jail Card for life.
