LUSH Makeup Swatches!

Lush swatches

Swatches in Daylight

You guys know how much I love LUSH – the company who has actively taken a stand against animal testing! Well, I’ve been excited to check out their new ALL vegan color cosmetics line – Emotional Brilliance. In typical LUSH tradition, the makeup comes in unique containers that give you the “I made this in my kitchen” feeling.

I tried the cream eyeshadows in Sophisticated (taupe) and Focus (silver) – both pictured with and without Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer. I was impressed with how they managed to be so heavily pigmented but so easy to blend into my skin. They are made with a rose petal infusion, almond oil and jojoba oil to baby your skin.

The lipsticks (Perspective – sparkly pink and Decisive – a bold red) come in the same kind of packaging – not exactly purse-friendly. But, I really liked the creamy formulas and was impressed with their staying power (I had trouble getting the Decisive swatch to come off my arm!). I swatched Perspective on a primer in the pics because I actually thought it was an eyeshadow at first. The beauty of these products is that you can actually use them for eyeshadow, lipstick or blush.

Swatches Indoors

The eyeliner comes with a thin brush (in the cap), but I had better luck using my own (firmer) eyeliner brush. It was kind of hard to get a straight line with the built-in brush. I would actually recommend using your own brushes for most of the LUSH cosmetics. Independent (black eyeliner) stays on very well – even without primer.

The Eyes Right mascara is a healthy smudge-free mascara that is actually made with wheatgrass to nourish your lashes! The bottle holds a LOT more mascara than the average mascara tube, but you are supposed to use it up within 3 months of opening (because LUSH doesn’t like to use a lot of preservatives). So, make sure you use it daily!

Have you tried any LUSH cosmetics yet? What did you think?
