Lush haul featuring new makeup line!

Hello lovelies.

Sorry for my absence but to be honest I have not found anything worthwhile to blog about!

Anyway, lets jump right into this haul.

As a VIP to my lush store, I was invited to the 'exclusive' launch of their new makeup line, emotional brilliance. It has 30 colour products (Liquid lipsticks, eyeliners, and liquid eyeshadows) and 3 other products including a face powder, highlighter and a tanner. I was given a colour reading and got Passionate (A gorgeous fuchsia) Happiness (A bronze gold eyeshadow) and Calm (A blue eyeliner.) They were all amazing but a little out of my price range at £14.50 so I got the 'Feeling younger' skin tint.

It's a lovely base similar (So I've heard!) to MAC's strobe cream which I've been wanting to try for a long time. It's only £12 and after 1 use I know it is going to last for a long time. It gives a lovely,  very shiny-in-a-good-way look. I use it all over the face lightly before foundation then dab a tiny bit extra after foundation along the cheekbones and down my nose for some extra definition. It's amazing! If you would like a seperate review then please let me know in the comments as I have alot to say about this product.

Left is blobbed and right is blended out. Gorgeous right!
Next I got the 'Dirty Body Spray.' This is aimed at men but I like smelling like a man so it suited me well. I got told I smelt of soap by my mum who doesn't understand lush, so take that as you will. To me it smells like a slightly minty, aftershave smell which is quite strong so you don't need a lot. I love it and for 180ml the £14 price tag isn't too bad. The spray bottle is cool too.

Next I got the 'Each Peach And Two's A Pair' massage bar which is £5.50. Lately I've been loving my 'Strawberry feels forever' massage which has been disconned (Sadly) so I wanted to try this one. It smells of lemon sherbet to me and is so silky smooth. You just melt it between your hands slightly and rub it in. It's so moisturising and I can see it lasting a long time.
My hand looks bizarre in this photo, but just for a size comparision!

Lastly I got the 'You've been mangoed' bath melt. I've always wanted to try this and had the spare change in my pocket to pay £3.10 for it. I haven't used this yet so I can't comment but it smells nice and seems to be popular.

I hoped you enjoyed this post as it was a lot of fun to write for me.

Have you tried any of the new makeup range?
What are your favourite makeup products?

Thankyou for reading.


  1. Nice haul there! I'm liking the look of the 'Feeling Younger' I use Benefit High Beam & am thinking this would be similar? It's cheaper than my current one so think will try the Lush highlighter when mine runs out. Glad you like the Dirty spray; it's not for me but it is v refreshing scent. The packaging is cool too. Love YBM melt but only have it as an occasional treat. Generally I prefer the bubble bars to the melts but they're great if you skin needs a drink. EP MB will compliment it perfectly :-) xx

    1. I think it'd be similar to high beam too, although I've never tried it before. You could always ask for a sample too. I never liked the dirty but tried it on in the shop and it developed nicely on me. I actually tried the YBM and love the scent when it's being used, so might buy it again once I run out. My favourite things are the bubble bars too so it was nice to branch out a little :) xx
