Lush Nottingham Emotional Brilliance Launch

On Friday I was lucky enough to be invited to the Emotional Brilliance launch at my local Lush in Nottingham.

The blogger event began at around 6:15, and we were split into two groups. We were then each given a chance to spin the colour wheel. You close your eyes, spin the wheel and when you hear it come to a stop, open them and select the first three colours that you notice first. The first indicates your strength or weakness, and I picked out Decisive. The second is your subconcious, or something that you want, and I picked Feeling Secure. The final colour that you choose is your aspiration, or something that's at the heart of your character, and I pulled out Passionate, which I think is quite accurate! The whole idea is definitely an interesting one and something that appeals to me personally as I own a tarot card deck and it's a very similar concept.

Feeling Secure, Decisive and Passionate. This photograph was taken with flash.

After choosing my colours I was allowed to play with them in front of a mirror. My favourite of the three products turned out to be the red liquid lipstick, Decisive, which was surprising since I'd have betted on me loving the purple eyeliner the most! It was lovely to apply, and felt very soft on my lips. The pigmentation is incredible. One dip of the applicator was more than enough to cover my lips, and it was still going strong several hours later. I didn't buy anything at the event but I am very tempted to go back and pick one of the liquid lipsticks up.

This new range consists of 30 colours, including liquid lipsticks, eyeshadows and eyeliners. However, the products can still be swapped around and used for other things, they're really quite versatile. There's also a new Desert Island range, which consists of  a bronzer, highlighter, mascara and translucent powder. I only saw the mascara so I wasn't able to photograph the other products in this range. All of the products are Vegan too.



Personally I really enjoyed the event. As always, it was lovely to meet some fellow local bloggers, and it was nice to be able to get a good look at the products. The whole colour therapy idea is something that appeals to me, although I'm aware that others might see it as little more than a fun gimmick. I do feel that the range is a little overpriced (the colours cost £14.50 each), I'd like them to be a tiny bit cheaper, but I was very impressed with the products, the liquid lipsticks in particular.

You can find out more about the Emotional Brilliance range the Desert Island products on the Lush website. If anybody has any questions you can also find Lush on Facebook and Twitter.

Did you attend one of these events? Are you interested by this range?

    1. It was a really fun event, but I do think it'd sell better if the price was a tiny bit lower. :(
