THE SPECS:

AMOUNT OF PRODUCT: 0.2 oz.

SMELL: None that is noticeable.

  • Soothe moves: The base is made with soothing rose petal infusion and skin-softening almond and jojoba oils to care for the sensitive area around your eyes.
  • Take your time: Our eyeliners and eyeshadows offer beautiful colour which doesn’t set straight away so you have plenty of time to get your look just right.

MY THOUGHTS:

Hmmm… I’m going to keep this review short. I’m not very fond of these liners, as a professional. For one, they come in glass bottles. That means that they are vulnerable to breaking in my kit, and they will add considerable weight if I chose to carry multiple colors. For two, the formula is very runny and takes multiple strokes to get the line opaque and streak-free. For three, it is super dry! You can see in the swatch photos how drying the liner is. For four, the purple stains! Yikes! That is a huge no no for me. I can’t send models and clients home with stained eyelids. The same thing happened with their liquid lipsticks. Take a look at the evidence below… (and this was after cleaning my hands three times)

I absolutely cannot justify spending almost $20 on this eyeliner for my professional kit. I would be interested to see if LUSH ends up changing and improving their formulas as their cosmetics line grows.
