I brought along my new 40mm pancake lens for its first field trip. I actually like it a lot more than my nifty fifty! It's significantly sharper, faster and quieter than the fifty.

I haven't been in Lush for a while (I've had to resort to ordering their bath products online as the shop's smells sometimes sets off my allergies), so I had no idea that they had added a perfume range!! I absolutely adored how Lust smelt! I have a soft spot for anything Jasmine scented and Lust was pure Jasmine in a bottle. I totally need to pick up a bottle sometime.
Meet Anthony and Dan, these two gentleman were in charge of mixing up batches of Ayesha fresh face masks for everyone to take home. We had a good chuckle about the effects of asparagus in your body. Apparently I have not yet matured beyond toilet humour.
I ended up with Drive (purple), Lifted (yellow), and Motivation (turquoise). At my colour reading, I was told that Drive is my strength and what people immediately notice from me, I subconsciously seek to be Lifted (yes, especially from the 32,000 documents that need to be reviewed on my desk), and Motivation is what allow me to attain what I subconsciously need (procrastinate much?).
As all the names are rather innocuous and banal, Emily and I wondered what happens on days when we wake up feeling like ass. We suggested they to add colours called "Crap", "Annoyed", and "Cynical" to the line in the future.
Overall I find Emotional Brilliance to be a very nice collection and I hope they'll eventually expand the collection to include things like foundation and blusher. There is a good range of colours to appeal to everyone, pigmentation is most excellent, and the colour wheel game adds a bit of frivolous fun. At first I felt like the price point was a bit too high but you really do get a lot of product for the price - the glass bottles contain a whopping 9g of product. My vegan friends will also appreciate the addition of a new makeup range they can use.
