B Never too Busy to Be Beautiful Xmas 2008!

I first came across Lush owned B Never Too Busy to Be Beautiful in London a few years ago.  I loved the boudoir style of the shop and bought a product or two back then.  It was a cream eyeshadows in a brown – green – nice colour but the product was horrible, creasy and slow to dry.  I decided to take a look at the website again today and they definately have some very cute, albeit gimmicky products.  They also make a lot of Vegan friendly, natural products.

Check this gift set out!


This Christmas, we’re offering a brilliant, mini-sized collection of our 21 best-selling cream and glitter eyeshadows. True beauty on the go; they will slip easily into handbags or pockets. Easily blendable, you can party every night with a stellar new look, or use them as eyeliners to enchant. With luminous, kaleidoscopic hues to daze and subtle, radiant shimmers to mesmerise you’ll be spoilt for choice. Plus, we’ve included a Flip Look Book with each set to inspire you along the way. It makes an essential gift for a special someone who deserves the beauty of lovely eyes.

Contains: 21x Mini Cream Eyeshadows and Glitter Eyecreams and Flip Look Book

The set is £55 – which for me too is too much. Although the formula may have improved a lot, I still have nightmares about clumpy cream shadows and because its quite a natural product mine started stinking not long after 4 months.  With so many cream shadows in one set, if they do go off there is not way I will get anywhere close to using them up.
This glitter set also caught my eye:

Contains: 1.5g each of Gold, Silver, Iris, Sky Blue, Emerald Green, Dusty Pink, Poodle Pink, Black, Red and Lavender.

This is eye safe which is great – at £22 its not too bad but you only get 1.5g and whilst I love glitter and sparkles, I am not one for full on glitter on the face anymore.

The Mint Julips Lip Scrub also looked good at £4.50

With the heavenly aroma (and taste) of yummy after dinner mints, this smoothing blend of sugar, softening jojoba and peppermint oils delivers a cooling, refreshing `zing` to your lips. Eliminating dry flaky skin in an instant, this gently exfoliating scrub leaves lips super-soft, supple and primed for pouting.

However look at the ingredients:

Castor Sugar (Sucrose), Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Chocolate Extract, Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Flavour

I could knock this up in 5 mins!  a bit of sugar, oil, food grade flavouring, some peppermint oil – easy!

The eyeshadows look great though – £8.50 each if you want the pretty case or £5 for a refill:

As cute as the packaging is I’m kind of over it.  Yes its super duper cute but its bulky and I don’t have the space for yet more bulky packaging.  If I buy 10 eyeshadows with a case it will cost £35.50 more than if I just bought a refill – granted it is very pretty. But I think I’d rather get refils and stick them all into an Aveda palette instead.
