A bright gold Monday morning Fantasy with LUSH Emotional Brilliance

I wear a really startling amount of gold eyeliner, so a good, reliable (read: permanent-range) gold has been on the top of my wishlist for months. I have and love Marcelle Lux Diamond Pure Gold, which I rave about on a pretty frequent basis, but I’m constantly on the lookout for a solid gold: a smooth, metallic finish, rather than chunky glitter.

(Which isn’t to say that chunky glitter is a bad thing; I’m crazy about chunky glitter. It would be nice to have both on hand, though, you know?)

I can think of very few brands who do gold eyeliners, and even less who do them in the tone I’m looking for. (Less bumble-bee yellow and a little bit closer to white-gold, or at the very least, antique gold). Take the liquid component of the sentence–an integral part thereof–into consideration, and just like that… results found: 0.

(Make Up For Ever #9L might have fit the bill, but: pencil.)

Meet LUSH Fantasy.

I haven’t had a chance to see this one in person, yet, but I’m excited for it: a permanent-range gold liquid eyeliner, no chunkiness in sight. At $22.95 CAD for a whopping 8g of product–most liners are about 2g,–Fantasy is one of two eyeliners in the Emotional Brilliance range that have been formulated with a long-lasting, no-smudge formula. (The others are designed to take longer to set for a softer, more blendable look.)

Keep your fingers crossed for this one, fellow gold-lovers!

P.S. The Emotional Brilliance range is housed in glass bottles (both recyclable & easy to reuse) with disposable wand applicators made from recycled black LUSH pots. With no extra packaging (the ingredients and info are all on the name-tag, attached with a basic black hair elastic), they’re designed to look cool on a dressing table & travel just as well.

This cruelty-free range will launch July 21st in LUSH stores and online.

    Now this range sounds promising! I think MUFE has a gold liquid eyeliner, but it's probably more yellow gold than true gold. Can't wait to hear if it holds up!

    • Yep, it is — MUFE & UD's are about the same amount of gold, unfortunately! (Which is to say: the amount that's not so much gold as it is metallic yellow. :()

  • Wow! I'm really excited about the Lush gold liner. It looks great from the bottle. Can;t wait for try it!

    I would brave the crazy strong smell of the store to try these babies out~ xD

    • LOL! A true display of your dedication :p Those stores are *smelly*!

  • It's funny… I love LUSH, but I just couldn't get into this range… I guess because I wasn't really sure what they were supposed to be used for. They just looked like liquid colour when I looked at promotional photos. :p

    But a gold eyeliner from LUSH, you say? That definitely intrigues me. I can't wait to read your review on it! :)

    • Same here, to be totally honest. As much as I like consistency, the rows upon rows of the same packaging just didn't seem very exciting! The individual product shots & descriptions that are popping up online are definitely helping, though ;)

  • Love to see this on you! You are right tho, most golden eyeliners are more of a yellow gold rather than white gold, but I love both!

    • I wish I could, too! Yellow-golds are just too warm for my face, though, most of the time — less "classy winged liner" and more "what the hell is on your face take it off take it off now." :p

    I want this so bad, I can't wait to see how you like it!! Ever since I heard about the collection I have been lemming it so hard!!! Thanks for this!!

    Have you checked out Milani Liquif’eye in gold? I really like it, and I hope it’s not too yellow for you. Here’s a swatch post from Temptalia:

    PS- Hi! I’ve not commented before but I love The Notice :)

  • My Lucite Dreams

    I love gold. I really like the packaging on these, it doesn't look very user-friendly though. I do really want to try out lush's beauty line,

    • I'm really curious as to how the packaging will handle — it's definitely cute, but I'm just hoping it holds up well & allows for good control!

  • Garrhhh I haven't tried ANYTHING from Lush and I keep hearing more and more wonderful things about them. These liners look stunning. I don't even really wear liquid liner, but I would for this baby!

    • Hey, & that's the test of a good promo image, isn't it? Not just "I love products like this, so this looks great," but "I don't usually like products like these, but this one looks great."

      I hope you give LUSH a try sometime & like it, honey! :)

  • It is very much an antique gold! I have a swatch of it lurking somewhere in a tweet. It is easily one of the most gorgeous items from Emotional Brilliance *__* similar tastes, yes? ;)

    • Ooh! I'm going to sift through your tweets later; it's going to be awesome. Like a wonderful party of only mild excitement, just for one. :p

  • It looks very much like those aromatherapy oil bottles~~ I hope to see your review and swatches on this. I'd love a good gold eyeliner!

    • Everyone needs a good gold liner! ;) They're kind of a must-have for me — probably my second most-worn, after black.

    I have Fantasy and I actually usually use it as an eyeshadow. I have not tried the other colors so I don't know if they take even longer to set, but Fantasy is easily blendable into a shadow…that said, once it tries it does not budge! love it =)

    • Oh, cool! I was just thinking about what Fantasy would look like as an eyeshadow, but I haven't had a chance to give it a try yet. With your rave about it, though, I think I'll have to! ;)

  • So this post may be from 99 weeks ago, but I'm going to comment anyway ;) I need to see this one in person because non-bumblebee-yellow gold liners are indeed hard to come by.

    • I ended up reviewing this one! Couldn't STAND the wear time. Lancome's new gold Artliner is a lovely gold that wears all day, though ;)
