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.
