LUSH Gets Pretty for Valentine’s Day 2009

I’m a LUSH fan–I say it proudly, and I say it loudly. (Oh, boy, me rhyming? Le sigh.) I love how they always have prepackaged gifts to give (or receive). This Valentine’s Day is no different, with some very lovely gifts to give, as well as a Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar to celebrate the lovey-dovey day. LUSH is kind enough to suggest that any single ladies get themselves some LUSH to pamper themselves silly!

True Love Gift ($42.95)
This limited edition gift set contains LUSH’s best selling aphrodisiac Sex Bomb, chocolate and honey centered Soft Coeur Massage Bar, honey and toffee scented Honey I Washed the Kids Soap in a heart mould, comforting Vanilla Fountain Bath Bomb, white chocolate Honey Trap Lip Balm, and a special heart-shaped Melting Marshmallow Moments Bath Melt . . . so don’t miss this chance to get your hands on your very own True Love!

Happy Valentine’s Gift ($19.95)
Spread the love with this gift filled with three temping treats that are best shared with others. There’s a sensual and sticky Soft Coeur Massage Bar, a matched pair of soul mate soaps called You Wash My Back, and a delectable Melting Marshmallow Moments Bath Melt.

Hello Sailor Gift ($12.95)
This gift is perfect for that someone who really floats your boat. It contains two shower sensations including sea salt shower scrub Rub, Rub, Rub, peppermint-infused Too Drunk Emotibomb to re-energize, and one temporary tattoo just for fun.

Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar ($8.95)
Massage your sweetheart with this sensual solid oil made with crushed strawberries and an infusion of hibiscus flowers. Simply rub the bar between your warm palms to release this fragrant oil and massage firmly, but gently into a willing body.

Availability: These limited edition Valentine’s Day products will be launching on February 1st in LUSH stores nationwide and online at

Dolce & Gabbana – The Makeup Line – Spring 2009

According to WWD, Dolce & Gabbana are really set on launching their makeup line. The line will range in price from $20 nail lacquers, $28 mascaras, $30 lipsticks, $36 eyeshadow duos, and up to $59 for foundation. The line also will have bronzers, blushes, eye/lip pencils, and lip gloss.

There will be a 110 stockkeeping units, and lipsticks with a scent are back–with a trademark rose scent. The mascara is said to have a peppery note (whattt?). As far as the packaging goes, it’s weighted glossy gold housed in velvet pouches (sounds like Guerlain). Even for those with the budgets to test out this new beauty line, distribution will only be in three places for the brand’s initial launch: La Rinascente Milan Flagship at the end of January, then Selfridges [of London] and Saks Fifth Avenue in March. As far as I read, Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC (Fifth Avenue) and Beverly Hills would see this in the spring. Saks intends to saturate other stores later this fall with D&G.

Excerpts from the article:

“We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood,” Gabbana added.

[Pat] McGrath developed three looks that epitomize the line: “Lustful Lips,” inspired by a silver screen siren with dark ruby colored lips and nails; “Provocative Eyes,” a smoky eye and pale lip, and “Sensually Natural,” a pared-back look of neutral hues.

Are you dying to check out Dolce & Gabbana’s makeup line? See it as just overpriced makeup? What are your feelings on D&G’s attempt to get into beauty?
