lush colour supplement review

I'm tossing the phrase 'holy grail' out there. This little pot of foundation-come-tinted moisturiser answers the often insurmountable 'your skin but better' brief with a few swift swipes of a buffing brush.

It strikes the perfect balance between matte and dewy, offering up a 'lit from within' finish that boasts some serious staying power. I tend to touch my face a lot during the day, so come 6pm my base is generally MIA. Happily, a test drive at work today confirmed this baby boasts higher than average staying power irregardless of excessive face touching. A little goes a long way - I swipe a little on each cheek and across my forehead before blending in with my buffing brush. If you fancy an au natural look but still want a little something extra, just mix a little in with your favourite moisturiser.

Lush tout their colour supplements as multi-purpose mineral-free nurturing bases for those with paler complexions that even out the complexion, reduce redness and enrich the skin with a rose petal infusion (to reduce redness), vitamin e rich rice bran oil (to add moisture) and titantium dioxide (to protect the skin from the sun). I for one would take the lighter complexion note with a pinch of salt as my chosen shade 'Light Pink' blends seamlessly into my routinely fake baked visage. The rest of the shades run from the lightest 'Jackie Oates' - named for the English rose complexion of the singer of the same name - through to 'Light Pink' 'Light Yellow' 'Dark Pink' and 'Dark Yellow'.

My one gripe? There's something incredibly endearing about quirky product names and Lush seemed to have ran out of steam on the creative front here, giving four out of the five shades in the range decidedly unimaginative names.

Naming aside, I'm 100% sold. The Lush Colour Supplements are £8.95/20g and can be found here.
