Luscious Super Moisturizing Lipsticks - A Mini Guide and Review
















Hello lovelies! Today I will be reviewing the Luscious super moisturizing lipsticks from a much loved local brand known for its affordable prices yet great quality. Also, since I have quite a collection of these, today will be a small lesson on what lip colors suit what skin tones. I am no expert but I have learnt from my mistakes and hope to help those who are often confused like me when it comes to shade selection.




Product Claims

A creamy and moisturizing formula enriched with Vitamin E and Grape Seed Oil for healthy lips. Designed for all day comfort and natural color results. Each shade is now a celebrity! Available in 20 satin-finish, shimmer and glossy shades.

What Do I Think?

I like how the design is simple yet not cheap to look at and the Luscious logo is a nice touch. There are a lot of good things to say about this range and I think the best part is that they are fragrance free so no one has to avoid them just because of an undesirable scent. The first thing I probably look for in any lip product is the pigmentation. I think this is one of the most heavily pigmented lipsticks I have ever tried. The creaminess plays a part in this I feel because it glides on so effortlessly that I don’t have to keep swiping it over my lips to get good color payoff. I was really happy that it lived up to its claim of being super moisturizing. It has an average staying power of about 3-4 hours with minimal eating and drinking. It is unfortunate that the staying power is affected in hot and humid weather and that is my only issue because the weather here is mostly hot. This can be remedied by using a lip liner underneath and making sure you don’t load up too much of the product on your lips.

What Colors to Choose for Your Skin tone?

The arm swatches above are on my neutral skin and today my sister will be the cool toned model while my blog partner Fizzah represents the warm toned dusky beauties. The lip swatches below will show you how a color looks completely different on a person with another skin tone. While picking out a lip color for yourself, go with the age old philosophy “Nature knows best”. Study your natural lip color. If it has more pink, you know that pink tones are a safe bet for you, if it has more brown in it then choose one where brown tones are more prominent. It can be tricky to find a balanced color that suits you perfectly.

The tones in your lip color should match those of your skin for example, cool toned people should go for cool lip shades. If cool toned women go for darker warmer shades they might look too harsh on them and cooler lighter lip colors clash with warm toned skin and may even wash them out. All the lip swatches have been taken in daylight. I hope you guys find this useful.

Sunset Pink

It is a peachy neutral beige color.

Its full intensity shows up on cool tones. It has a white base so it clashes with the yellow tones in neutral and warm skin tones.

Honeydew

It is a warm latte.

The yellow tones in neutral and warm skin tones absorb the brown color making it appear lighter. It is a beautiful nude for warm tones.

Haute Pink

It is a bright pink shade.

The red tones of this shade are more prominent on a cool toned person and it looks pinker as the warmth of the skin tone increases. It looks great on everyone though.

Just Peachy

It is a medium peach color. 

On a darker warm toned person it appears much lighter, almost as a pretty everyday medium to nude color depending on your depth.

Dreams

It is a mocha pink shade. 

An ideal every day color for a dark warm toned person but the brown in it shows up a lot more on neutral and cool skin tones.

    1. Thank you for your appreciation and encouragement :) Yes it is one of our favourite brands. Great stuff at affordable rates! Yes Sunset pink actually depends more on how fair you are as compared to what your tone is. It really suits people with fair skin and yellow tones :)
