Snow Showers is the return of last year's great Champagne Snow Showers. One of my favorite scents, not just from Lush, but period. Lush calls it their version of a Bucks Fizz which is a British drink and also my favorute truffle flavor by Charbonnel et Walker chocolates.( Haven't had the drink). It has cognac and orange oils and is just yummy. The cognac doesn't give it an alchohol smell just deepens the citrus and gives it a smooth edge. The scent is very much like last years version.
The Comforter has a very berry scent but with a hint of almost menthol from the Cypress oil. The bergamot is pretty quiet in this and the Cassis berry is strong. This is the strongest smelling of the group with the Cassis packing a punch. This scent lasts the longest.
I do not know if these are LE or permanent.

I always loved those little ball highlighters but hadn't used any in a long time.( Again, I still have some vintage qualifying ones from ye olde days). Meteorites are beautiful but not enough pigment. These have pigment and can even be used as a light blush. Very pretty, with a tiny bit of shimmer but not much.
Prescriptives is also having a holiday contest and some price reductions of gift sets. Read on for more info:

I've been using the Cuticle Cream lately. Winter always bring a big need for hand creams, nails creams etc. The best I used was a Swiss brand that I haven't found in years. I'm glad to have a new one on, well, hand.
The Eve Lom version is a tiny pot, but that pot holds a lot and a little goes a very long way. You really need just a dab . It imparts a high shine to the nail bed as well as tons of moisture. All that oil doesn't make it greasy though. It dries quite fast and sinks in. It also seems to last through at least one hand washing. My nails are looking much shinier all the time now since using this and I haven't even used it every day.
There are loads of oils in this to help nails- Sweet Almond, Eucalyptus, Clove, Camomile, Soybean, Hops and a few more.
