Lush Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipstick Swatches

Hi, everyone! Today's featured swatches are of several of the Liquid Lipsticks from Lush's new Emotional Brilliance makeup line. I experienced the collection shortly after its launch in July (you can read about my initial review and impressions here), and walked away with two of the lipsticks, Passionate and Vibrance. I subsequently gained five more of these lovely little treats from a friend who used to work for the company and had extra products to share. It was such a thoughtful and generous gift!

Here is a photo of the seven Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipsticks in my collection now:

 
(L-R) Lush Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipsticks in Ambition, Power, Vibrance, Decisive, Passionate, Confident, Perspective


The texture of these lipsticks is relatively thick and quite creamy and comfortable on the lips. Most shades, as you'll see, are highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way! Some shades have a velvet to matte finish, while others pack some serious shimmer. And despite their moist feel, they're actually quite long-wearing. I pretty ideal formula, if you ask me!

Here are swatches of the 7 shades in my collection:

Lush Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipsticks in (L-R) Ambition, Power, Vibrance, Decisive, Passionate, Confident and Perspective
With flash

Ambition is a vibrant, warm, red-tinged orange with an opaque, semi-matte finish. Not for the faint of heart.
Power is a bright, orange-coral with gold shimmer. Slightly more sheer than Ambition.
Vibrance is a highly shimmery orange-gold shade. Definitely the sheerest of the bunch. Would look lovely layered over another lipstick.
Decisive is a bold, nearly-opaque, slightly blue-toned red. Screams Hollywood glamour.
Passionate is a bright, blue-based fuchsia colour. Richly pigmented and slightly shimmery.
Confident is a deep, saturated plummy eggplant shade. Perfect for vampy fall lips!
Perspective is a semi-matte, slightly cool pinky-mauve-nude shade. The subtlest of the bunch, but perhaps the most unique.

Here are a couple more swatch photos:

Have any of you tried the Lush Liquid Lipsticks yet? Any favourites? Any of the shades above that you'd like me to feature in an upcoming Look of the Day?

Thanks for reading! xoxo

  5. I love the first two. I wanted to buy some of these when they first came out, but I heard a lot of mixed reviews so I didn't rush out to get them. I do still want to get a couple things though.

  6. i looove the mauve one, it'd go with any outfit. and i love how thick they are- so many lipsticks come on semi clear and it drives me nuts. it must be fun playing with that, i've never heard of liquid lipstick till now

    1. Yeah, it's actually fun to work with the liquid lipstick texture- they're really easy to apply but give great colour payoff, which is great! I think I was most surprised by the mauve shade, Perspective, because I usually can't wear shades like that, but it is surprisingly flattering!

    1. Yes, they're super pigmented. You should definitely test out some of the Emotional Brilliance line; they're fun little goodies to try, with a great colour selection. And was there some sort of song to go along with it? I haven't heard it!

  22. Hi Jen! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your comments really mean a lot to me. I hope you enjoy the stuffed squash recipe. I have been itching to try lush's new makeup line and after reading this post I might just have to head to the shops this afternoon. I think picking a colour might be next to impossible though.
