Just as a little FYI and some news to wet your whistle, Lush Cosmetics will launch its first make-up range next month. Though they've been keeping most of the range a secret we know a little bit about the line.
It consists of vegan lip colours, eye shadows and eye liners in an eye-popping array of colors and your loyal reporters over here at Racked Chicago will be among the first online pubs in North America to see it first hand. That's right, there's a preview on the 10th of July in Bucktown. New York gets a preview the day after us and the global launch happens on July 21.
look forward to Emotional Brilliance, a range designed around providing shades that match up with the wearer's emotions, with products like the pillarbox-red Ambition lip colour, the violet Feeling Secure liquid liner and the pearly grey Focus cream shadow. Products in the line can be worn to depths of color or lighter to sheer. This versatility is thanks to jojoba oil, cocoa butter, rose wax and rose petal infusion and like other Lush products, the packaging is environmentally friendly.
