Emotional Brilliance?

Lush, Lush, Lush. Oh we have a love/hate relationship don’t
we? I have to admit, I’m really not a fan of the over zealous staff in some
Lush stores, so I always avoid going in when it’s quiet. On the few times I’ve
been in when there was more than just I in the store though, I have been overly
drawn to the new Emotional Brilliance make up range. I must admit, the reviews
I’ve seen flying around and the whimsical ethos behind it all have been a
massive influence and therefore made me want it more….

The Lip Gloss in ‘The Kiss’ smells to me like they might
have popped a little too much of the aniseed like substance in, and that I’m
not too keen on to be honest. It has nothing to do with that time I got smashed
on Pernod, pretty much passed out, then necked a pint of milk the following
morning to vom it back up in my bed, honest. Hey I was young, YOLO and all
that. But I digress. Aniseed is not my favourite scent or flavour. However, the
consistency of this is lovely. Not sticky and more like a balm with a high
gloss pay off. It’s a nice yahhh.

I would describe these uber pigmented lip colours as Rimmel Apocalips meeting up with the ELF HD blush for a few gins then giving it the big one on
a Friday night. They have the moisturisation, the sucker punch of colour and
the weird velvet like texture to boot. Me likey. The colour really does stain
your lips, so much so that I literally had to wear ‘Passionate’ for 4 days in a
row until I managed to scrub the colour off!! It was a good thing though as now
I’m way more comfortable rockin’ a bolder lip in the daytime at least. I’ve
also got to state this is my new favourite lip colour ever. It’s so vivid! It
doesn’t smudge or bleed either. Gotta say, it’s a bit of a winner. I’ve not
actually tried the red shade ‘Ambition’ yet though, I’m just not brave enough
in case it stains as well, but maybe this weekend I will live on the edge.

Sorry if this review has bordered on the brief side, still
no internet at home, which ultimately means more time snapping stupid pictures
of myself and less time being able to knock out blog posts. I hope you can
handle this. I am certainly struggling.
