LUSH Red Dragon Soap Review, Photo

LUSH Red Dragon Soap ($7.95 for 3.5 oz.) is a limited edition soap infused with Lush’s Karma fragrance to celebrate the Year of the Dragon. I made sure to suds up last night with this soap to kick off the new year myself. The top of the dragon has a dusting of “gold,” which does immediately disappear after it hits the water. Lush describes the Karma scent as a “spicy blend ot patchouli, lavender, and pine.” There is also orange oil in it, which is one of the more noticeable notes of the scent for me.

MAC Duck Powerpoint Eye Pencil

MAC Duck Powerpoint Eye Pencil ($15.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “soft grey brown.” It doesn’t read gray at all to me; it’s more of a warm-toned, medium-dark brown with hints of red in the base. It has no shimmer, so the finish tends to look more matte on the lash line. Chanel Brun-Teak is similar but darker. MAC Brownborder is also similar and only slightly darker.

Cle de Peau Beauty Secret (R7) Extra Rich Lipstick

Cle de Peau Beauty Secret (R7) Extra Rich Lipstick ($60.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich coral-brown with a natural sheen and hint of shimmer. It’s more of a muted coral that doesn’t have the level of warmth that many corals have. Dior Versailles has a similar coral-brown-like base, but it has a lot of golden shimmer, so it appears lighter. MAC Mellowarm is reminiscent of this shade but with more orange. Cle de Peau #114 is slightly more orange, but it’s somewhat similar. Burberry Blush is pinker.
