Well, let me clarify. I think that the actual products themselves, which are completely vegan, are a great idea. Because of their non-chemical construction, you can wear the color pretty much anywhere, whether on your body, your eyes, lips, cheeks, wherever. That part I like. You may not truly wish to wear neon-green lipstick but you CAN IF YOU WANT TO, and that is the point here. I’m always a fan of multi-tasking makeup, and this stuff fits the bill.
But, the presentation that I was semi-forced to listen to in the store was so new-agey, so hokey, that I had a difficult time not rolling my eyes at the poor salesgirl who was probably just trying to earn a commission for herself. Which I totally understand. However, I was told by a complete stranger what my personality was like based on the three colors that I chose off a color wheel. Whatever. I don’t know why Lush figures that an elaborate sales pitch would help move what seems to be an already fairly impressive product.
If she had just told me that I could use the makeup anywhere for anything, there was a fairly good chance that I would have bought one just to try it out.
But the high-pressure sales pitch that claimed to know all about my subconscious completely turned me off and had me running out the door at the nearest, polite-est opportunity.
Lush, you may want to rethink this.
