Guest Post: Lush Emotional Brilliance

Lush's Emotional Brilliance range

This may be all of my favourite things rolled into one, Lush (one of my favourite British brands) has launched it's cruelty free, natural cosmetic range Emotional Brilliance. A line of thirteen liquid lip colors which double up as cream blushers, eleven liquid eyeliners and six cream eyeshadows and even offers a mascara with only one perservative. Products retail at £14.50 which is not cheap but it does contain a lot of goodies, though for regular Lush users you will not be surprised to know that some of the range does contain parabens. The range is based on the idea of colour therapy and colours evoking moods and shades are named as such e.g. a vibrant red lipstick called Strong and Motivation a teal blue eyeliner. It's worth making a visit to a store to get a better idea of the concept behind it.

The lipstick recipe for the liquid lipsticks is a super softening base, which is a simple blend of organic jojoba oil, candelilla wax and rose wax, intensely skin-softening and soothing.

                  The eyeliners are made with the same nourishing base as the cream eyeshadows with a soothing rose petal infusion and skin-softening almond and jojoba oils, there’s also glycerine to help carry the colour. The cupuaçu butter in the eyeliners helps to set the colour pigment nicely, these beautiful colours are easy to use and able to create a softer look if required.

I love the droplet packaging and sponge applicator on the lipsticks and eyeshadows and the eyeliners have a fine point brush for precision application. For those of you that are anywhere near a Lush store I urge you to go in and check these out and take part in the Lush colour wheel, for those of you can't then click on the link below to learn more about Emotional Brilliance.
