One for my Fair Skinned Beauties !

I received a press release today aimed at all you porcelain beauties out there and wanted to give you a quick heads up.

Lush have released another colour supplement in the range which is specially designed with redheads and fair complexions in mind. 

Jackie Oates £7.50

The base consists of whole oats, honey, shea butter and lanolin to hydrate, calm and soothe sensitive skins. You can mix this with a moisturiser for more of a sheer colour or on its own as a foundation or concealer.
I have not tried any of the colour supplements yet but thought I'd share this as i know there is a real gap in the market for fair skinned gals who want a bit of cover at a decent price and knowing LUSH it will be worth giving this one a go.

I have to say i think really pale skin looks so beautiful and i hate to see naturally light skinned girls wearing orange foundation. But there is still a lack of light shades available in the majority of middle market makeup ranges.
Have you tried any of the colour supplements? Do you struggle to find a foundation that's the right colour?


  1. Thank you for this!! I struggle so much to find the perfect shade! In Mac the lady says i am an NC15 but even then she said that's too dark :/
    I need this in my life :) xx

  2. How genious of them to come up with such a product! Kudos to Lush ;)


  3. Oh I'm so happy you posted this!

    I'm indeed a freckled, sensitive skinned redhead, that never tans, but just turns a ravishing shade of lobster red.
    And I have yet, in my soon 32 years of being, to find a foundation with a colour that's somewhat me.

    I'm currenty using a super thin layer of GOSH Extreme Wear in 11 porcelain, but that doesn't cover my vibrant redish cheeks, and everywhere else, there's that distinkt tone of "well that's not your skincolour" orange.

    So perhaps this could be it... I sure do hope so.

  4. Thanks for your comments ladies, i know this post is not suited to everyone but there is a need for this type of product. I really hope it's as good as it sounds.
    If anyone tries it please let me know how you get on xx

  5. I've seen this recommended before, it looks pretty good!

  6. Thank you so much for posting this - it's so hard finding new products aimed at ultra light skin. This is definitely one I'll be checking out. x

  7. I've tried this as i used to work at Lush, and once i left, randomly got sent a package with perfume samples and this product. It is good , but is very very light and i'm just lighter than an NW15, so it is only for very very very pale people, ie Nicola Roberts pale

  8. Yes, I agree...finding a light enough colour can be hard, especially with the tints of orange a lot of foundations seem to have in them! Very annoying. This product sounds interesting.

  9. Sounds great. I am also a naturally ginger, fair/celtic skinned, red cheeked/nosed girl. The sun is my enemy, coverage is my friend. It's so hit and miss with foundations. So many seem to have too much pink or orange.

  10. I have it! it's very fair (I'm pretty pale) and smells like bread :)

  11. completely agree i love the porcelain look too but such a limited range xx

  12. Oooh i'll need to have a look at that, i'm not sure which "shade" i'd be in MAC terms, prob like an NC10! haha, but I know I need Alabaster foundation when it comes to Clinique.

    I've tried the whole fake tan thing, i've even considered sunbeds, but i've finally decided to embrace the pale! :P

  13. I struggle to find concealer that's the right shade, but I'm not fair I'm more on the light/medium side. :)


Thankyou for all your comments, i appreciate each and everyone xx
