Lush Emotional Brilliance // Translucent Face Powder

Since the launch of Emotional Brilliance is creeping up on us, it's about time I get on reviewing the products for you. I thought I'd start off with my most used and favourite of the bunch. 
Before you powder your nose:
Emotional Brilliance Translucent Face Powder is one of the four supplements Lush have created to complete their new range. It's a loose, translucent, ultra-fine light reflecting face powder,that is suitable for all skin types...what a mouthful. Being a translucent powder it can be used to either set your foundation, provide shine free finishes & even out your skin tone. If you have dry skin like me you'll be pleased to know it contains plenty of softening jojoba oil that allows the pigments to be delivered onto the skin smoothly. It also protects your skin from any elements. There are absolutely no preservatives or mineral oils in the powder, so it's very unlikely this would irritate those who are sensitive. 
How to use:
Like any loose powder it's best to use a brush. The brush I get on best with, with this powder is my favourite Sigma large powder brush. A little of this powder goes a LONG way. 

Packaging:
As lush like to keep their packaging to a minimum the powder comes in their usual glass pots, that the lip scrubs and colour supplements come in. The glass pots are perfect to keep and use when you travel, I normally do this or just recycle as you normally do. Keep the caps and take back to the store for them to send back to the supplier. There's no sifter with this powder, so go careful and don't over load your brush.
How I got on:
I have dry skin, so finding the right powder can be a little tricky, I've tried many over the years. I've used the same powder for the past 5 years. There aren't many powders out there that won't dry my skin, however this hasn't. I've had many compliments and even I couldn't stop looking once applied. My skins been naughty this month, it's decided to have a few days where it joins the oily crowd, which I used to my advantage, this powder worked on those days too. My skin looked and felt good! This powder leaves your skin smooth and silky. It's actually pink, I was expecting it to be plain white, but once blended out, it's a great translucent powder that reflects the light a little, you won't be a disco ball and it's no replacement for your highlighter. It didn't break me out, it isn't heavy on the skin, it doesn't cling to dry skin, it sets my foundation for the whole day. As much as I adore Lush, I wasn't expecting it to be this...brilliant!

    1. Haha! It's fine if you go careful, I haven't really spilt much, mostly when I poured it out on my hand for the photo :P
      Feels so smooth, I love it! Really doesn't feel like any other powder.

  4. Ooo lucy I really fancy this! I get a bit oily sometimes so was eyeing up the laura mercier powder but this sounds more nourishing...and of course cheaper.

    Great review :D

  5. Wow this sounds brilliant! I wasn't expecting it to be so fab, I'd thought it might have too much of a glittery finish. Ace review :-)

  6. Not sure if £12 is really worth it tbh if it's the same size jar as the lip scrub.. but then again I'm cheap.. lol. Though ofc probably need to try it first!

    1. Haha, lip scrubs are completely different though, you get a decent amount of powder I think, especially for the quality, a lot cheaper than high end :)

    1. Thank you :) I've had shiny skin again today and it worked a treat, I'm also getting smaller spots so I'm guessing this is lighter on the skin, not that I get many spots anyway :)
