6 Days With Lush Emotional Brilliance

*Press Samples*

A few weeks ago, Lush contacted me to feature Emotional Brilliance. I was excited, as I had only tried a few products from their makeup line before. 

First up, I went to the store to experience an Emotional Brilliance reading. I had never taken the time to do this in store before, but I think it is a bit fun to do even if it isn't normally your style. (It definitely is not mine, as I generally want to experience a product without frills or just be left alone, ha! Well, except at Lush and Space NK, I could chat all day!)

Back to the color reading! I closed my eyes and when I opened them again, I chose three shades that really stood out to me. The first signifies your strength or weakness, the second your subconscious, and the last your aspirations. So, take a look at my color reading selections! You can also do your own color reading in store, or online

My Strength Or Weakness: Passionate*
I seriously love this GORGEOUS fuchsia pink. It is a very long wearing lip color that I nearly have to exfoliate to remove. I love the color and feel super confident wearing it! Do I feel passionate? I sure do, and it totally is a strengthanda weakness! (Those of you who get excited about certain projects or plans will know what I mean!) 

My Subconscious: Calm*
I was immediately drawn to this pretty pale blue. If you've been hanging around the blog lately, you'll notice I've had a thing for blues. Even when I went into Lush, my nail polish AND shirt nearly matched this shade. Anyway, this selection is pretty fitting as I am pretty overly calm and composed most of the time, haha! I find this color to be super summery, and on my skin tone it becomes a pretty shade of turquoise.  Love it!

My Aspiration: Motivation*
Motivation is always my aspiration, isn't it funny how that turned out? I was surprised how much I like this gorgeous dark teal blue shade. It looks almost neutral, and yet it isn't, and that is just the type of liner that I love. Now if only it could give me that extra kick of motivation I'm always looking for…!

I was able to choose 3 additional shades, and this time around I chose colors I knew I would wear.

Sophisticated* 
This eyeshadow just adds polish and sophistication. It is a great rosy taupe and makes for an amazing every day color. This shade is definitely a unique addition to my collection, and I know that I'll be using this tons. 

Quietly Motivated*
Another eyeliner… It seems that I have a thing for eyeliners! This one is a pretty light brown with sparkle and dimension, and even blends out to a pretty eyeshadow color. 

Decisive*
I was not having a decisive day when I first wore this amazing magenta-red. I totally love the color, but it requires a bit of blotting and careful application to keep it looking perfect. Once you've done that though, this color wears beautifully!

The eyeliner applicator is a bit hard to use, but I chalk that up to my lack of skills with liquid liner in general. I imagine those of you with skills will be used to it quite quickly. Also, these lipsticks are reasonably comfortable. I say reasonably because my lips are quite dry and flaky, and after wearing one of these shades all day I definitely need a bit of hydration. However, I imagine both of these points may not apply to many of you! :)   

All in all, I quite like the Lush Emotional Brilliance lineup. I loved Charisma Skin Tint, am having a go at the Feeling Younger Skin Tint*, and have enjoyed the lip/eye offerings I've tried before. Watch the video to hear about these shades and see them swatched on camera! 

What do you think of Lush Emotional Brilliance? Have you had a color reading before? Are any of these shades calling to you? :)
