      Disadvantages

      Guilt-free, but not gilt-free!

      For those of you who don't know, Lush have a sister store selling cosmetics and perfume, called B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful, and it is from this range, rather than Lush, that this eyeshadow comes. B cosmetics are available from several stores in London, a store in Poole, Dorset (the birthplace of Lush) and by mail order/online.
      (For more info, please read my review of B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful!)

      I have been trying to decide whether Bethlehem is gold or silver. In fact, when you first look at it it looks off-white, but on the skin it shimmers with both silver and a very pale gold, a very unusual colour indeed. If it wasn't for the fact that all B Never Too Busy colours are given names beginning with B, I would suggest that this one should be called Moonshine, because that is what it reminds me off. It is very eye catching and ideal for evening wear, with an iridescent quality.

      This eyeshadow stays on well, covers really well, and is a reasonable(ish) price at £8 for a teeny pot - it compares with some of my other favourite make up like Urban Decay in terms of price and quality.

      So why particularly should you buy this one? For me this (and the whole range!) is The Best because it comes with the added extras of fabulous packaging (and I mean fabulous, a sequin studded, bejeweled pot, each one is different!) and the guilt-free eco credentials of a company who have been producing cruelty free, gorgeous products made with natural ingredients for ever and ever (or since the mid 80s at least).

      Over the top in decor and luxurious as the pot is, the idea behind it does not stray from environmental friendliness, because it is re-fillable, and next time you could choose another colour if you liked. The refills cost £5, so represent a substantial saving too. I'd recommend treating yourself, or else this would make a fantastic Christmas stocking filler.
