Lush Colour Supplement Review

Sometimes indecision can be annoying and I should know because I am the friggin' Queen of indecision! When it comes to make up though, you generally don't want a product that can't make up it's mind..I thought. Enter Lush's Colour Supplement. Is it a foundation? Is it a moisturiser? Is it a Velociraptor? Well, no; no its not that, but I'm on a mission to find out what it is. 

Exhibit A- Lush's Colour Supplement in Light Pink. There are 5 shades to choose from, ranging from the superbly named Jackie Oats- for the palest of ladies among us to.....light pink, dark pink, light yellow and dark yellow- no I don't get it either! Why give one a brilliant little name like Jackie Oats, in true Lush tradition and then just kind of half arse it on the others. Bit of a cop out. After a little of debate, myself and the lovely lush assistant decided that I was a Light Pink over a Jackie Oats...awwww...I wanted to be a Jackie Oats (and it smelled yum too!) 

The product itself is a nicely thick consistency- that whole Goldilocks theory I have- not too thick and not too thin.... The idea behind this product and the reason it isn't a foundation is that it can be used a multitude of ways. If your looking a horror, the theory is that you apply it straight from the jar for a more complete coverage. If your feeling a little more in the mood for something Au Naturale, you can mix it with your moisturiser for a tinter moisturiser. 

To continue the Lush theme I though it was best to mix it with one of their moisturisers so I used some Skin Drink. Problem. Skin drink is for dry skin and I only very occasionally have to use it, it's more the Beau's product then mine. When I use this again, I will definitely use a less intense cream, probably the Imperialis that I intend to buy when my Decleor runs out. I think that would give a really delicious dewy look. It needs something thats a light moisturiser as my face looked beyond dewy for a while almost damp- not a look I would be wearing out anytime soon as my hair just stuck to it and I looked like I had a stuck on beard- different, but not necessarily right.....  but for pictures and the like on here, it's all good.

I added a bit of the supplement straight from the pot, no blending; to see if it would do anything to the dark circles under my eyes, nothing much does. As well as making your skin look good, the product is designed to try and make it feel good. It has Red Rose Petal Infusion to damped any redness skulking about your face, also theres Glycerine in there too doing dark magic to make your skin absorb moisture well, giving you a more flawless look. On the skin it felt divine. Really silky and it blended gorgeously. 

And here's the end product. I think, if I do say so myself I look resplendent. Not in the face, as for some reason as soon as try to smile at a camera I turn into Hamster Child but my skin looks gooooood! I like that you can still see my freckles; it has managed to even out my skin tone, which does have a lot of red   and pink undertones to it without covering my face completely. We chatted about it and this isn't a foundation; Lush doesn't want you to look like you are wearing makeup; they just want you to look like a better version of yourself. A sort of healthier yoga-ey, outdoorsy, Gwenyth Paltrow style person and it has always been said how similar me and Gwenny look...

If you had a complete breakout of pizza faced proportions I don't think it would cover mixed with a moisturiser and your best plan of attack would be to go at your face with the pure product foundation style. I tested it out on my little sister who is having a bit of a teenage breakout at the mo- she's a completely different skin tone to me, much darker skinned (bitch!!!) and we agreed that if she bought it, one of the yellow based supplements would be best for her. However even though it didn't 100% match her skin tone it wiped out any of the redness surrounding her spots! Winning! 

So, thoughts. Hurrah for indecision I say! If this is indecision then Im in full support of it! Is this going to be my new foundation? No. It just doesn't quite have that coverage that I would want on a night out but is it going to become my new tinted moisturiser and go-to daytime piece? Yes. I like that I can mix it to the coverage that I need and if anything is going to make me look well and like I've exercised and eaten sensibly without leaving the comfort of my sofa then bring on more. I still wish I was Jackie Oats though; such a good name!
