      A great eyeliner

      My favourite store, Lush, recently introduced a new makeup line into stores. Called Emotional Brilliance, it was designed to promote certain feelings and emotions. The idea is that you spin a colour wheel and choose the three colours that stand out for you most. I was initially dubious about this idea, as I prefer to choose my makeup based on which colours suit me. I was also unsure whether a shop known for bath products and soap could really produce a successful makeup line. However, after trying a couple of lipsticks I received for free and really liking them, I decided to give a couple of other products a go.

      My chance came after Christmas when items produced before a certain date were reduced to half price. This lowered the price of the lip and eye products from £14.50 to a more manageable £7.25. I picked up the 'Feeling Secure' eyeliner in a rich purple shade.

      It comes in an apothecary-like bottle with an applicator, made of glass with a black plastic top. You can clearly see the colour inside and how much you have left. The eyeshadow and eyeliner bottles are identical to the lip colour bottles - the only difference is the actual colour inside, and the style of the applicator brush.

      The eyeliner is suitable for vegans, and is made with a base of rose petal infusion, glycerine and almond oil. It is designed to be gentle on the skin and I certainly haven't experienced any irritation from using it. The eyeliner is made from the same base as the cream eyeshadows, meaning that it doesn't set immediately - this gives you the chance to correct any mistakes!

      There are several lovely shades in the range, but I chose this one as I liked it the best. I love purple and I thought a purple eyeliner would be a great way to get my eyes to stand out. The brush is very thin which makes it easy to get a reasonably straight-ish line. It is also short, which I find actually makes it easier to use - holding it closer to my eye leads to a steadier hand, I find.

      It's possible to use the eyeliner for both thin and thicker lines. I tend to prefer thin, but sometimes make it a bit thicker for more of a dramatic effect. Though it takes a minute or two to dry properly, this isn't normally a problem for me although if I open my eyes wide I sometimes find that it leaves a mark on my upper eyelid. This is easily removed, however.

      The eyeliner lasts really well - I can wear it all day and it doesn't flake or come off in the rain. It is, however, easily removed with normal cleanser or eye makeup remover. I've had a number of compliments when I've been wearing this, which makes me very happy!

      I am very impressed with this eyeliner and despite the high price would consider buying it again. I'd also like to give some of the others in the range a go.
