The very popular handmade skincare line, LUSH, has introduced a cosmetics line. I have a few pieces from the makeup line to swatch and review for you, so let’s get started with their liquid eyeliner!
AMOUNT OF PRODUCT: 0.2 oz.
PACKAGING: It’s packaged in a clear glass bottle. The top looks like a dropper from the outside, but it is actually a fine-tipped liquid liner brush.
SIZE: About the size of a bottle of eye drops.
CONSISTENCY: Very liquidy.
SMELL: None that is noticeable.
INGREDIENTS: Rose Petal Infusion (Rosa centifolia) , Water (Aqua) , Glycerine ,Stearic Acid , Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis) , Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) , Cupuacu Butter (Theobroma grandiflorum) , Triethanolamine , Cetearyl Alcohol , Synthetic Fluorphlogopite , Titanium Dioxide , Iron Oxides , Ferric Ferrocyanide , Methylparaben , Propylparaben
- Set the mood: Go bold and colourful, or less dramatic, these beautiful colours are easy to use and blend effortlessly into the skin to create a softer look if required.
- 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.

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.
