Stuck in a makeup rut?

I like to think of myself as adventurous but to be honest on most fronts I am predictable maybe even stuck in a rut. I find a makeup look I love and then wear it every day, favorite shirt, favorite meal.. etc, etc.  When I got a chance to check out the Pixi Week of Wakeup Makeup I thought this might be just what I need to get out my normal routine rut.

This collection has been so fun I love how it has all everything I need in once case (great for vacation) and its helps girls like me be a bit more adventurous. One standout thing is the quality of the line it rivals the major cosmetic lines I love. The shadows have great pigment and last all day and the gloss is hydrating and looks great.

Blake Lively says NYC made her trendy.

Blake Lively says she has a better wardrobe since living in New York.

The 23-year-old American actress has become an international star thanks to her role in the hit US teen drama Gossip Girl.

Blake enjoys the perks of starring in the popular TV show, which follows the lives of a group of stylish youngsters living in New York. The star says her wardrobe is far more impressive since appearing on the glamorous series.

“None of it is mine. It’s nice to play dress-up, it’s like being a little girl and putting on make-up and outfits. I grew up in Burbank [California] and I love living in New York City so much [because of the shopping] and I now have a way better wardrobe,” she said in an interview with British newspaper The Independent.

The beauty plays Serena van der Woodsen in the popular show, and is often compared to her charismatic character. Blake says although she wears the same kind of clothes and lives in the same city, she is rather unlike her fictional character Serena.

“I wear pretty clothes and live in New York so people think I’m very similar to her; they see her talk and interact in their homes once a week and they probably assume that is who I am, but it’s not me,” she explained.

Get Dirty with LUSH’s Latest Launch!‏

A great new line, I just had the chance to check it out and I love the scent. The Dirty body spray is just yummy I love when my husband wears it. The body wash and shave cream have a great fresh spearmint smell and a woody undertone which combines for a super sexy smell. Love!

For people who care about their appearance but can’t be bothered with too much paraphernalia in the mornings, the NEW “Dirty” collection is a no-nonsense fragrance that hits you with intensely crisp spearmint, thyme and tarragon, and the subtle smell of calm seas.

Dirty takes the common idea of ‘layering’ with beauty products a little bit further. Normally, grooming products will all have a different scent. However, this new concept of layering means you can shower in invigorating spearmint and thyme, shave with soothing lavender and sandalwood, and style hair with tarragon and oak moss. Once all of these products with their individual fragrances have been used, the combined scent will be that of Dirty, and can be topped off with the body spray, which contains all those main notes.

Dirty Spring Wash Shower Gel ($9.95 for 3.3oz, $17.95 for 8.4oz, $26.95 for 16.9oz)
Don’t be a dirty rotten scoundrel. Recreate your very own mountain spring and wash with this tingly, softening, minty shower gel that contains spearmint, thyme, and sea salt.

Dirty Shaving Cream ($12.95)
Shave it all off using our ultra-softening oats and benzoin shaving cream. There’s also lavender and sandalwood in there to soothe any irritations.

Dirty Hair Gel ($12.95)
Refresh your coif with our conditioning and softening, firm hold styling product. Made with fair trade coconut oil, linseed gel and balm herb infusion for the perfect just-got-out-of bed style.

Dirty Body Spray ($19.95)
If you don’t have the time for a full-on Dirty routine in the morning, take a quickie instead and spritz yourself liberally with this body spray before you head out the door. No one will ever know.

Available online and in LUSH stores on May 23rd!
