The cycle that is *fashion*/trends in make up...Lush Emotional Brilliance!

Colour therapy uses light in the form of colour to balance "energy" wherever a person's body be lacking, whether on physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental levels.

Lush has used the power of colour, the meaning of colour and words attached to specific colours like an affirmation in the creation of their new line Emotional Brilliance, an empowering concept no? Well it is one that has been seen within the cosmetics world before and it was a range called Tony & Tina.

Tony & Tina were 2 New York based artists who believed in the *power* of colour book published in 2002
The line was *full colour* and colour therapy was at the heart of the range.
Along with esoteric names the colours would resonate with you and there was a *test* that would guide you in your choice of colour.
The nail colours in particular were very popular and were sold in Liberty late 90's onwards. The Glitter is called *The Gift* and this picture is courtesy of: Pretty Random Blog.
Tony & Tina were a couple and never meant to create a range of make up, it started with nail polishes as part of an art experiment in 1997. The range grew and grew and with the lipsticks they incorporated aromatherapy as well as colour therapy, the couple split and Tony & Tina was sold to/acquired by Wella's cosmetic division in 2002 and stopped trading in 2005.

Lush Emotional Brilliance:

Colour therapy for eyes and lips where you choose 3 colours and each colour you choose has a meaning and that meaning and colour resonates with you.

Aah the cycle that is fashion. I love the lip colours and the colour that resonated with me was *Power* mwah ha ha ha. ;) The woman that is the colour mastermind at Lush is Ro/Rowena and she was the creative behind B never too busy to be beautiful. I have only ever heard wonderful things about her, so I think Emotional Brilliance was created with the best intentions and as the perfect colour range for Lush.
Just shows the cyclical nature of fashion and make up. xx
