We all know LUSH as an eco-friendly brand, but this really takes it to the next level! Today, at 12 PM sharp, they will be leading a protest that urges shoppers to go “naked” by purchasing products free of packaging. The main event is located in NYC (Outside LUSH Soho, Broadway, & Spring St.), but the activity will also take place in Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Washington DC, Orlando, Portland, Aspen, Boulder, Carmel, Pasadena, Scottsdale, Maui, Annapolis, Bethesda, St. Louis, Las Vegas, Kansas City and Providence.
Why are LUSH employees shedding their clothes to talk about packaging? The environment is one of the biggest global issues we face today. In order to combat climate change and to protect the Earth’s scarce natural resources, shoppers need to take action by avoiding packaged goods. Unnecessary packaging can be found in almost every retailer: loose fruit individually shrink-wrapped or on plastic trays in supermarkets, the prolific use of plastic carrier bags and the mountains of plastic bottles used for cosmetic products are all contributing to the growing environmental crisis.
Did you know… LUSH only uses 100% post-consumer waste bottles for their plastic bottles? Their paper bags, cardboard boxes, and reusable tins are all made from recycled materials?
Good luck to those very brave employees! You wouldn’t catch me struttin’ my birthday suit all over town, even for a good cause, but then again, maybe I need to go on How To Look Good Naked, and then I’d be all over it.
On her inspiration, Bobbi Brown says, “I love nude makeup – and it’s especially sexy when it’s saturated with glimmering, light-reflective flecks.”

If you, like me, always enjoy about discovering a new beauty line, then I have some news for you! Jouer Cosmetics has re-launched itself exclusively at Henri Bendels this August. It is an “innovative collection of custom luxury cosmetics.” (No doubt about that, since it’s a Henri Bendels exclusive, can’t imagine it not being luxury!) They are touting the Luminizing Moisture Tint SPF 20 as their star product, along with their Age-Repairing Brightener and Concealer. Jouer does niclude a full line of color pieces as well (lipsticks, shadows, etc.). Apparently, Jouer first launched in 2004, but this is the first time I’ve heard about it.
Check the line out at www.jouercosmetics.com.
What look are you wearing today? What makeup are you sporting? Is it a no-makeup day? Full out face?
OMG, I was hit by a nasty, nasty bug on Sunday afternoon. I probably caught it on the plane, but who knows. All I know is that it sucks something awful, and I really wish it would go away. I feel miserable, incredibly groggy and sleepy all-freaking-day-long, and whiny! I think my boyfriend is on the verge of going insane. A sick Christine is NOT good for anybody. I did this look on Monday, but I completely dozed off, though I totally meant to post it earlier. I swear!
You will need the following…
- Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (creamy neutral base), Dreammaker eyeshadow (white-gold), Sharp eyeshadow (chartreuse), Cool Heat eyeshadow (blue-teal), Graphblack technakohl (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
- Cheeks: Suncentered Colour Forms powder (peach)
- Lips: Soft Lust lipstick (frosty champagne), Rich & Ripe lipglass (red-coral)
- Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
- Substitutes: Dreammaker = Nylon; Sharp = Sour Lemon; Cool Heat = Electric Eel; Suncentered = Peachykeen; Soft Lust = High Tea; Rich & Ready = Lust
Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Dreammaker eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Sharp to the middle of the lid, then overlay the outer lid with Cool Heat eyeshadow. Drag Cool Heat eyeshadow into crease using the 239. Sweep Dreammaker underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Suncentered using the 129. Apply Soft Lust lipstick to lips, and then top with Rich & Ripe lipglass for color and shine.
