Lush // Emotional Brilliance Eye Right Mascara

Eyes Right is another new addition to the Emotional Brilliance collection that launched last weekend. It retails for £12, found online or in your local Lush store worldwide. Like all mascara's it has it's pro's and con's.
All you need to know:
Eyes Right is packed with ingredients to nourish your lashes and just one preservative. The buildable formula contains Japan and Carnauba wax to help the formula set, it isn't going anywhere. Wheatgrass nourishes your lashes from the 4-6 preservatives you've coated your lashes with for years. Perfect for those with sensitive eyes or those who have always been too scared to try.
Like the eyeliners, shadows and liquid lips the mascara comes in a glass bottle, with the black cap lid that you can take back to Lush to recycle. If you've read my previous reviews, you know I'm a big fan of the packaging for this collection. I think it justifies the price while keeping to it's Lush basics. The wand is your fairly standard mascara wand, it would have been nice if Lush had took the game up a further notch and added a curve to it or larger brush. You'll see the mascara wand is also incredible short to fit the bottle.

How I got on: 
Eyes Right has it's pro's and con's with a little work I think the mascara could be brilliant. The first negative being the length of the mascara wand. It's short. As soon as the cap finishes the brush starts. Now this makes application tricky, fiddly and a little bit messy, not one for days you feel shaky or in the car! However the lashes this brush reaches, it coats pretty well, I used two coats. The formula is probably one of the blackest mascara's I've owned and it only has one preservative. It also doesn't smudge in the rain or while working out, it's been tested during my odd workouts and the monsoon I got caught in, in Bristol the other week. No smudges at all. For me it's 50/50 it's pigmented, it's gentle, it's monsoon proof but the wand lets it down. 
£12 for 5g and an awkward brush is rather a lot. However it's Lush, it isn't drugstore and it's not full of complete rubbish, plus drugstores aren't that far behind. It's the only item in the range that I won't repurchase, or at least not in a hurry, I'd use it with another brush . Great formula, wrong wand. 3.5/5. The stores have disposable applicators, so try before you buy, our preferences are all different.

  1. the wand put me off this mascara :( it sounds good otherwise though!

  2. Would love to try this but £12 is rather a lot for only 5g! Not sure if it would last that long xo

  3. Would love to try this but £12 is rather a lot for only 5g! Not sure if it would last that long xo

  4. It's expensive but I'd invest if it wasn't for the wand! Everyone's saying the same so maybe they'll fix that?

  5. Such a shame about the wand, that would really put me off x

  6. I would love to try this mascara as it sounds so good, but the price and the wand put me off which is such a shame, great review though xx

  7. A very honest review! The length of the wand would definitely put me off x

  8. I never knew that Lush made mascaras, the price does put me off, as you can get so much better mascaras on the high street, even for cheaper. x

  9. I really want to try this to see what the formula is like but really am not keen on the wand! x

  10. I tested this mascare in Lush earlier this evening & I have to say its actually the best mascare I have ever tried my entire life :) the wand is the one thing that does put me off but they do give your a handful of re usable wands for free which can only be a good thing xoxo

  11. I like the idea that it isn't smudge proof, and that it's highly pigmented, but I'm with you on the wand, that's not cool. Think that would put me off a purchase to be honest.

    Thanks lovely, great review :) Xx

  12. I would have actually tried this if it wasn't for the short wand! X
