I am a massive Lush fan. It shocks me at times that I haven’t blogged about them more but I guess it’s easier to blog about new stuff than the things you use on an ongoing basis… One of the things I have touched on in the past is the makeup range that Lush brought out in July of last year – Emotional Brilliance. I’ve had a quick look at the lipsticks in my post on Emotional Brilliance and their record breaking attempt but now that I have four of them I thought it was about time that I did a post on all of them.
These lipsticks come in beautiful glass bottles with a doe foot applicator. The bottle is sturdy enough that you don’t need to worry about bringing it travelling. Each lipstick costs €17.95/£14.50. They are designed as a liquid lipstick so are very moisturising but you do have to be careful with them as they don’t set fully. They are so highly pigmented that they can stain your skin if you’re not careful. On the plus side, when they are wearing off they do leave a stain on your lips so you aren’t left with no colour – particularly with the more pigmented shades!
Out of all of the lipsticks that I have from the Emotional Brilliance range Bubbly is the most sheer. It has a lovely irridescent sheen to it so it’s a really nice product for a neutral lip. It’s described on the website as a two-tone rose pink but I can see a coral tint to it more than a pink.
Believe is described as a raspberry ice-cream pink on the website but I feel it has a more coral/red tone to it. This colour is highly pigmented yet very wearable.
Passionate is such an appropriate name for this colour. It’s very vibrant and hard to ignore. This colour is described as two tone hot purple pink on the website and I have to agree with that description. This shade has a blue undertone so is great for making your teeth look whiter as an added bonus.
Lastly, yet the first lipstick I bought from this range, is Decisive. This is described as a vintage cherry red and is what I would consider to be a true red. My picture of it doesn’t do it justice as the lights seem to have washed it out a bit but this is a bold red and gives an absolutely perfect lip.
So that’s my Emotional Brilliance liquid lipstick from Lush ‘stash’ – let me know what you think! Do you have any of the colours? Which of them would you wear?
*Two of these lipsticks were given to me at the Pucker Up for Record Breaking event and the other two I purchased myself. My views, as always, are my own!
