Review+Swatches - LUSH Makeup!
I never thought I’d see the day when LUSH put out makeup items, and I don’t mean that in a bad way, just very surprised. We have items for lips, eyes and cheeks. The first collection (how awesome does that sound??) is called Emotional Brilliance and consists of 13 Liquid Lip Colors, 11 Liquid Eyeliners and 6 Cream Eye Shadows. And instead of just focusing on what color you like, they are rolling it out with a game attached – a game that has you pick your colors based on your mood. Take a “spin” here.
Like a lot of their products, they pay attention to what’s not inside each product like parabens, mineral oils and making them vegan.
So as with everything on this site and what you want to know is … how did they perform? Click after the jump to see how they held up as well as more pictures.
Shown here: Liquid Lipstick in Perspective (dusky rose), Cream Eyeshadow in Focus (iridescent blue/gray), Liquid Eyeliner in Motivation (two-tone peacock)
Let’s look at each item individually. First, the Liquid Lipstick in Perspective - a total YLBB color, this one felt super moisturizing on the lips probably due to the organic jojoba oil, candelillia and rose wax. Though not transferable, it did last on my lips for a few hours (without eating or drinking anything). I give this one a grade of a B+.
Cream Eyeshadow in Focus – I totally loved this color in the bottle as I have a new dress from here and this would go perfectly. The color went on smoothly but I couldn’t seem to get an even coat of it on my lid so before it was fully dried I blended it around so it just left a light sheen over my lid. I give this one a grade of a B.
