When it comes to trends, it would be fair to say that 2017 has – so far – been the year of the unicorn.
Even high-end designers are getting in on the act. Just when we thought we’d seen it all, a pair of colour-changing Christian Louboutin unicorn heels came clomping all over our Instagram feeds.
But if you’ve been watching this fantastical, rainbow-coloured joy unfold with less than sparkle in your eyes, fear not: Lush’s new Halloween beauty collection is here, and it’s goth enough to soothe even the darkest of souls this autumn.
As any Lush fan (or ‘Lushie’) will know, the annual Halloween collection sees both the return of some of their much-loved, limited-edition items, as well as the arrival of a whole host of new products to see you into winter and beyond.
And their black sorcery is definitely a foil to the world of pastel-hued magic we’ve been surrounded by of late.
Slated to return this year are the Lord of Misrule shower cream and bath bombs, as well as the Goth Fairy shimmer bar and Pumpkin bath bomb, all of which went down a storm in 2016.
But what else can we expect for Halloween 2017? Read on and start deciding which products to add to your shopping basket – the whole collection is available to shop at the Oxford Circus store now and will be launching online 5 September, followed by stores across the UK on 18 September.
Bewitched Bubble Bar
While the Bewitched bubble bar is an obvious must for cat fans, don’t be fooled by its adorable expression: it will fill your bath with black-as-ink bubbles within moments.
Black Rose Naked Lip Scrub
Formulated with moisturising coconut oil, this decadent scrub will leave you with irresistibly smooth lips.
Magic Wand Soap
Attention, Harry Potter fans: this one’s for you. Formulated with charcoal and pomegranate, this magical soap will leave your skin both fully cleansed and gently moisturised.
Black Rose Lip Tint
If you’re not quite ready for your favourite shade as actual make-up, don’t be put off by the black hue of this creamy lip tint – the colour transforms to a gorgeous bright pink on contact with your skin.
Who else but Lush could take every colour of autumn and cram it into a single soap? This is a must-buy for the colder months ahead.
Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar
Nothing spells Halloween quite like the humble pumpkin, which is given a glittering makeover with this gorgeously scented bubble bar.
Monster's Ball Bath Bomb
Get in on the monster act with this zesty, fruity bath bomb that comes complete with a delectable chocolate nose.
Pink Pumpkin Bubble Bar
Perfectly pink and sparkly for those not ready to give up the glitter entirely, this pumpkin bath bomb is billed as an intoxicating love potion – perfect for bewitching season.
