Lush lips

After looking at Lush’s new(ish) collection of make up every time I went into my local store over the last few months I finally took the plunge and bought one of their liquid lipsticks. I can never resist a good red lippie so I chose Decisive, described as “a vintage cherry red”. It is a rich, blue toned red, not too liquidy and it comes in a dinky glass bottle with a sponge applicator

The applicator doesn’t feel too strong, indeed a bit wobbly, so I am very

careful when pulling it out as I don’t want to break it. It looks pillar box red in the packaging but it is more of a pink toned red when applied to skin

It gives wonderfully rich, smooth coverage on the lips. Only one coat was needed for bold colour and it is lovely and soft and doesn’t dry the lips out as other long lasting lip colours can do. I can easily wear it alone and not feel dry. It is still on my lips after lunch and several cups of tea, although the softness had dried a bit but it returned after a swift application of clear gloss. The colour isn’t as red, it has toned down to a much pinkier shade which is not unpleasant and I suspect it will finally end up as a stain – not something I would complain about!

I would certainly buy more of Lush’s cosmetics, indeed I have my eye on Perspective, a natural dusky rose colour, for days when I want to be subtle or to emphasize my eyes.
