A while back, LUSH released a color cosmetics line and I’ve always wanted to try something from there out but didn’t really get a chance to. Until recently, that is! I finally took the plunge and got a cream eyeshadow. I figured that I might as well try some CF cream shadows that I like before saying goodbye to the ones I love and have.
Anyway, I picked out Sophisticated, a shimmering taupe cream color. I tried out a couple, but I couldn’t take my mind off of this.
It’s a beautiful taupe shadow that I felt would go with most of the colors that I owned. I really fell in love with it. This is an opaque swatch, and below is a blended out swatch:
Here, it’s Sophisticated with shu uemura’s ME medium brown 885 in the outer corner and crease:
These don’t crease, by the way. The line on my eyelid is just my eyelid. 🙂
I can’t put my finger on if it’s warm or cool, to be honest. I feel like it’s warm on the swatch, but when I look at it on my eyes, it looks quite cool.
It’s very easy to use, with a doe-foot applicator/wand thing. You dot a little bit on the part of your eye where you want the color to show up then spread it around.
These cosmetics are freshly made in small batches, so be sure to check the bottom of the bottle for the date it was manufactured and the date it will expire or go bad.
Overall, I’m very happy with this purchase and I want to look into their other cosmetics. I don’t really have a lot of colors for their cream shadows that I’m all that interested in, though.
These are available in LUSH Cosmetics branches all over. LUSH is cruelty-free.
