99% of the year I use make-up that is the palest shade. However sometimes, on those very odd occasions when my skin meets sunshine, I need something a little darker. But because it’s only a small portion of the year that I need a darker shade I begrudge buying a new product.
This is where Lush’s Colour Supplements are little pots of brilliance. Add a smidgen to your moisturiser, foundation or sun cream and you’re sorted!
They come in seven different shades, from Jackie Oates to Dark Brown. If you’re unsure which shade would suit you best, just head into a store and they would be more than happy to match a pot for you.
I’m currently using the Light Pink pot (3rd along), adding a tiny bit to my moisturiser every morning for work and to my foundation when I go out.
INGREDIENTS: ROSE PETAL (below), SOYA OIL (below), TITANIUM DIOXIDE, RICE BRAN OIL, STEARIC ACID, TALC, GLYCERINE, TRIETHANOLAMINE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, METHYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN
As always from Lush, the product is not tested on animals and is handmade (thanks Judo) which is great. It’s also light and natural on your skin, doesn’t feel oily or clog your pores. The only negative I would say is that the colour range is not massively inclusive for those with darker skin as the dark brown is not really that dark.
I’m hoping we get some more sunshine in England so that I can keep using this product, otherwise it will be going back in the make-up bag until the sun reappears next year! Come on British summer!
