Hey dolls! I’m trying to figure out the value of some types of posts and weighing the pros/cons to determine overall value to you all as readers! So if you could take the time and cast your vote, it would be MUCH appreciated. If you want to elaborate on your answers in the comments’ section, please, please do so! Your feedback is so vital to the improvement of the site.

For Dame Edna, Chill, and BBR, I have purchased all of the products from the launch. I have then photographed each product, and if there were lip products, put each on and photographed that, too. Are either of these really valuable to you? Is it worth doing?

How useful is seeing photos (taken by Temptalia) of ALL the products from a MAC launch?

  • VERY useful! I love it! (84%, 1,033 Votes)
  • I like seeing the photos, but all I need are swatches! (10%, 128 Votes)
  • It's useful, but it's not really necessary. (4%, 54 Votes)
  • I don't find them very useful at all! (1%, 11 Votes)
  • Other - I'll tell you in the comments! (1%, 1 Votes)

Total Voters: 1,227

Finally, I’m trying to incorporate more video into this blog. I have some things planned, but I wanted to know if you find product reviews helpful in video format, if you prefer written reviews (as are already in place), etc.

Do you want to see video product reviews?

  • Yes, but only if you do BOTH written and video. (33%, 386 Votes)
  • No! I prefer written reviews. (30%, 353 Votes)
  • Yes! I'd love them more than written reviews. (19%, 221 Votes)
  • Yes, from time to time, but not all the time. (18%, 214 Votes)
  • Other (0%, 2 Votes)

Thank you!!

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 www.lushusa.com.

Here are some product close-ups of Chanel’s Magic Night ombre essentielle eyeshadow and Chanel’s Fandango blush. Plus, swatches of those two as well as Chanel’s Delta ombre ‘eau (liquid eyeshadow). I have not yet had a chance to try Fandago yet, so I can’t report on whether it ends up turning to mud on my cheeks yet!
