Lush Emotional Brilliance Glamorous

As you may know, Lush has launched their first make-up line and I have reviewed Bubbly (orangey-rose pink) in the past. I actually had luck with their products because I am loving Bubbly and Glamorous but I think Glamorous is a tad more special and surprisingly flattering. Let's start with the packaging. All products (eyeliners, liquid lipsticks/blushes and mascara) have the same vial-inspired look. The top (the cap) is made of black recycled plastic and the bottom is made of glass. You get 5g of this creamy lipstick/blusher and it would seem to be a bit small amount of product hadn't I been nosy and popped the plastic “neck” on the “throat” of the bottle (I have no idea how I come up with these metaphors). When I took a peek inside I could tell that the bottle is very densly packed with this lipstick/blush. Quite thick and somewhat foamy. So, I don't think that I will run out soon because, besides how densly packed with product this bottle is, you also need just a teensy bit because it's really pigmented. BTW these products last for a year.


Kao sto vjerovatno znate, Lush je lansirao svoju prvu kozmeticku liniju a ja sam recenzirala Prposna (narandzasto-ruzicastu nijansu) prije nekog vremena. Prilicno imam srece sa njihovom kozmetikom jer volim nijansu Prposne i Glamurozne s tim sto mislim da je Glamurozna malcice posebnija i iznenadjujuce mi lijepo stoji. Poceti cemo od pakovanja. Svi proizvodi (ajlajneri, ruzevi/rumenila i maskara) imaju isti izgled i oblik bocice po epruveticama. Gornji dio tj.cep je napravljen od reciklirane crne plastike dok je sama bocica od stakla. Dobijete 5g ovog kremastog ruza/rumenila sto bi se inace cinilo kao relativno mala kolicina ali posto sam znatizeljna, skinula sam plasticni “vrat” sa “grla” bocice (nemam pojma odakle mi ova poredjenja). Kada sam zavirilaa unutra odmah se vidjelo da je u bocici gusto stisnuta bogata kolicina proizvoda. Jako gusta i donekle pjenasta. Zbog toga mislim da ga necu isuvise brzo potrositi jer i pored ovoga, uopste vam ne treba puno proizvoda po nanosenju jer je jako pigmentirano. Usput receno, ovi proizvodi imaju rok trajanja do 1 godinu. 

The applicator which is located on the inside of the cap seems to be an issue to some bloggers because it seems wobbly and not stuck firmly on its place. I think there's no need to worry because it benefits from being wobbly when you reach to pick up some product. You will be able to pick it up from the sides more easily due to this. Now, the texture. Since I have Bubbly as well, I can compare the two although I'll make a more thorough Lush Emotional Brilliance product comparison with the ones I do have. Bubbly seems more thick than Glamorous. Although very creamy, Glamorous is more hydrating and blends like a dream. The pigmentation is excellent. A definite blue-toned bubble-gum pink which would in most cases look unnatural now seems extremely flattering. And I honestly think it would look marvellous on cool and warm skin tones.

Aplikator koji se nalazi sa unutarnje strane poklopca je izgleda nekim blogericama problem jer im djeluje da se previse mrda, nije cvrsto zalijepljen. Mislim da nema potrebe za brigu posto je ta njegova “razmrdanost” dobra stvar jer se lakse moze pokupiti proizvod sa strane i ivica. Sto se teksture tice, posto imam i Prposnu, mogu da uporedim ove dvije nijanse iako cu jednom napraviti i poredjenje Lush proizvoda iz linije Emocionalna Brilijantnost, barem onih koje i sama imam. Prposna mi je nekako gusca od Glamurozne. Iako je i ona jako kremasta, Glamurozna je vise hidratantna i jako fino se blenda. Pigmentacija je izvrsna. Definitivno je rijec o zvakasto ruzicastoj sa plavim podtonom koja bi u vecini slucajeva izgledala neprirodno ali mi sada djeluje jako, jako lijepo. Iskreno, mislim da bi lijepo pristajala i na kozi hladnijeg i toplijeg podtona.

This amazing pink shade illuminated and provides instant swipe of healthy color to my cheeks and my lips. I even prefer to use it as a blush because it makes my complexion more radiant and skin awake. It's very well pigmented but it diffuses all the pigment concentration evenly on the skin and it's so easy to use with your fingers which makes everything more easy and fuss-free. There are limitless ways to use this product. As I've mentioned, my favourite way is to apply it on my cheeks and I love that it's effectively blendable. If you are going for a light and natural flush of pink just dab it on your cheekbones and blend away immediately. When you're blending it while it's freshly applied and “wet”, you take away the pigmentation from one place and evenly distribute it over your cheeks. That creates a light pink veil over the skin.

Ova nevjerovatna ruzicasta osvijetli i da neku zdravu dozu boje samo jednim premazom mojim jagodicama i usnama. Cak ga vise volim koristiti kao rumenilo posto ucini da mi ten djeluje osvijetljeno a koza nekako razbudjeno. Jako je pigmentirano ali koncentriranu pigmentaciju ujednaceno rasprostrani po kozi i jako je jednostavno koristiti prstima sto dodatno olaksava stvar. Neograniceni su nacini na koji mozete koristiti ovaj proizvod. Kao sto sam spomenula, meni je omiljeni kao rumenilo i super mi je sto se lagano blenda. Ako zelite samo prirodnu ruzicastu na obrazima, samo natapkajte malu kolicinu aplikatorom i odmah blendajte. Kada “razvlacite’ proizvod po kozi dok je jos svjeze nanesen i “mokar”, prenosite pigment sa jednog mjesta i ravnomjerno ga razmazujete preko obraza kreirajuci njezni ruzicasti veo.

If you want a really punchy color, add a second layer and leave it for a few second to rest on your skin. When it dries a bit it looks much more intense and being more dry, less blendable – it focuses most of the pigment on a smaller part of skin thus giving an intense color. If you want to use it as a lipstick, building the intensity is also possible and some preparation of the lips (e.g. lipbalm) is something I'd advise but it isn't necessary, just something that will make your lips look even better. It has an enviable staying power and I recommend Glamorous to everyone and anyone. If the price of approx 19$ seems like too much, regard it as a fantastic cream blush and then as a lipstick. The blush side of it completely makes it worth every penny, at least it does to me.


A ako zelite stvarno jaku, izrazitu boju, onda dodajte drugi sloj aplikatorom i ostavite ga par sekundi na kozi. Kada se mrvicu osusi izgledati ce mnogo intenzivnije a samim time sto se malo osusio, teze ga je blendati pa ce fokusirati pigment na manji dio koze dajuci jacu boju. Ako ga zelite koristiti kao ruz za usne, takodjer je moguce pojacavati intenzitet ali bih preporucila osnovnu pripremu usana prije nanosenja (barem malo labela) ali to nije neophodno, samo detalj koji ce uciniti da usne izgledaju jos bolje. Jako se dugo zadrzava na kozi i preporuciti cu Glamuroznu svakome od srca. Ako vam cijena od 45KM djeluje previse, gledajte na njega kao na fantasticno kremasto rumenilo pa tek onda kao ruz za usne. To sto je izvrsno rumenilo mu (barem meni) opravdava cijenu.

      Znam da ih vise nema kod vas, citala sam sa nevjericom jer se prepadnem je li i BiH next? Nadam se da nije jer ih jako volim, dosta mi je njihovih proizvoda bas "leglo" i ne znam kako bi ih niti cime zamijenila. Uh, to mi je nocna mora.
      A znam da boja na slikama vuce na tu nekako umjetnu ruzicastu pa cu ja uslikati nju na sebi iako mi je to kao knedla u grlu…jos nisam slike sebe postavljala na blog a i ne volim sebe fotkati…biti ce to cudno iskustvo u svakom slucaju ali nadam se da ce pomoci
