Next up in our best of British series, is one of my favorite bath/body lines. Lush is a longtime favorite at TDO for its incredibly whimsical and inventive products. Glitter bubbles? Hot and cold shower jelly? A great pumpkin soap? If you’ve dreamed it, they’ve probably built it.
For their newest line, they want you to forget all about being in-season or on-trend. Emotional brilliance, is all about choosing colors to suit your mood. Like the mood ring, the classic 80’s throwback, each of Lush’s 30-shade collection is associated with an emotion. Feeling fuchsia? Maybe you’re in the mood to believe. Orange-red? Strong. Classic red-blue? Ambition.
The range includes lip glosses, eyeshadows, and eyeliners. My favorite is Lush’s Liquid Lipstick, a super-emollient, high-definition, bold colored lippie infused with candelilla wax, jojoba oil, rose wax, and ultrabalm, the super ingredient responsible for Lush’s ultra-moisturizing products. The finish is smooth, non-sticky, incredibly long lasting and the hues are incredibly pigmented and vibrant. Have difficulty choosing a color? You can also stop into any Lush store and get a custom reading from the color wheel. Spin the wheel, pick your top three colors, and learn more about your strengths/weaknesses, subconscious, and aspirations. It’s one part psychic evaluation/makeup consultation and just the thing to show the world how you feel.
