Lush Solid Shampoo Bar

Since LUSH is pretty far away from where I live, I tend to not visit often. But when I do i end up wanting to buy the whole store. One of the new products I purchased was their solid shampoo bars.

Over time I have experimented with a few different brands and formulas. It's really hard to find mascara for me because for some reason I always end up looking like a racoon at the end of the day with tonnes of smudged mascara under my eyes. These three mascaras seem to work best for me though:

    The Maybelline Mega Push mascara is the most natural looking of the three. It adds lots of volume but not much length, it barely clumps and stays on for an average amount of time (for me it's about 4 hours). The Dior Blackout Waterproof is definitely a bit more on the pricy side, but it is amazing. The mascara goes on without any clumps, it lasts me all day and it makes my lashes look so much more voluminous and a bit longer.
