I finally checked out what all the fuss was about and got my butt over to LUSH today. I must say I had the best time there and adore the staff! I was welcomed with open arms and dove hands first into a demonstration of their bubble bars. When they found out I was a LUSH virgin they took me around the store and showed me everything, and demonstrated on me their numerous massage bars, body butters, body tints, by the time I left I was a LUSH expert.
I wish I had purchased more but in the end I walked out with two bath bombs, a bubble bar, and a sample of yummy soap.
I got the Sex Bomb and Space Girl bath bombs, and the Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar. I loooove the smell of Sex Bomb! I also got a free sample of Sexy Peel soap and it smells like a bunch of lemons which is a great pick me up smell :).
I wish I could say my experience at MAC was as wonderful. I’m definitely not a MAC virgin but considering it had been a while since I’ve purchased their foundation, for the life of me I couldn’t remember my color number. After standing there clueless and ignored for 10 minutes a MAC employee approached me and assisted me in finding the right foundation number for my skin. He then proceeded to give me a free application and lesson, which was greatly appreciated but I felt bad since he was trying to sell me a bunch of other products I couldn’t afford at the moment. After explaining I just wanted foundation the lesson was over and he hurried up and grabbed the foundation I asked for.
I can understand his annoyance, I should have said something but before I could I was grabbed and sat in a chair. After I left I checked my makeup in my mirror and was very disappointed. Since the application was rushed the foundation was not blended well ( I could see on my nose where he didn’t finish blending) and whatever powder he used caked on my face very badly. In the end I know if I want a specific MAC product I’m better off buying online.
Oh yeah, I’m an NC15.
