Last weekend I visited Lush to check out their newly launched debut make up range 'Emotional Brilliance'. I'd read the press releases about the new line but was keen to see for myself how the concept of selecting colours worked.
One of the Lush staff offered to give me a personalised colour reading, you simply spin the wheel and then choose the three colours that stand out to you the most which are meant to reflect your state of mind. I selected Focus a bright silver eyeshadow, Feeling Secure a vivid purple eyeliner, and Bubbly a pearly pink lip colour.
There's 30 colours in the range all priced at £14.50. My favourite shade is Perspective a subtle pink lip colour that's perfect for everyday wear and would look great as a cheek tint too! All the colours I sampled were highly pigmented and blended easily. Numerous shades in the collection have dual purposes and can be used on the eyes, lips or cheeks depending on the look you're creating. Many of the products contain jojoba and almond oil alongside cupuacu butter as a base providing soft and nourishing properties for the skin.
Lush have also launched Eyes Right mascara, which claims to be suitable for the most sensitive of eyes containing only 1 preservative, Emotional Brilliance, a light-reflecting face powder to give a shine free finish, Charisma, a bronzing skin tint to give you a glow and Feeling Younger, a skin tint containing a magic orange pigment which works as a reflector leaving your skin looking brighter and youthful.
In keeping with Lush's environmentally friendly policy their entire make up range is suitable for vegans.
