It's been a while since Luscious Cosmetics Pakistan released their Signature Lipsticks which come in a seemingly NYX inspired packaging and a generous amount of product. These lippies are my hands down my favorite product that has been released by Luscious and for good reasons. They come in an array of 16 gorgeous colors which are specifically targeted and formulated keeping in mind the skin tones of Asian/Olive toned ladies. From neutrals to brights, Luscious has you covered. The finish for most of the lipsticks is soft matte, but there are a few shimmers in there too.

The shade that I got my hands on is Shade 3, Buff Pink! Now first things first, the shade seems to be shown as a very, very pale pink on the website. While this does come in the category of pale pinks, it has more color than what is shown on the website. The other thing with this particular shade is that it seems much darker in the bullet for some reason, it really isn't in reality. Now that that's out of the way let's get onto how amazing this lipstick is-
1. Super moisturizing! I wouldn't say use it without a lip balm underneath, but this is a lipstick that will not dry out your lips after you put it on. Ive used lipsticks that dry out my lips within an hour, not the case with this gem.
2. Long lasting! Matte lipsticks usually stay on longer than the other finishes and being a soft matte this lipstick stays on and on, literally for 3-4 hours, and it fades nicely with no clumping on the sides of your lips.
3. The pigmentation! For a lighter shade, this lipstick has excellent pigmentation, two swipes and its opaque.. I wonder how richly pigmented the darker, brighter shades in the line are if this one's soo good.
4. The scent! I can't describe how yummmy this lipsticks smells. It's the perfect blend of vanilla and perhaps some coconut(?), don't quote my on that though. The vanilla is soft and subtle and not over powering at all. There have been times where I've just opened the tube to take a whiff. Yes, it's that amazing and more!
All in all, I love this lipstick and can't wait to try out more from this range, especially the darker shades since the lighter shades aren't usually the best with pigmentation in lipsticks, but if the lighter shades are this amazing, I can only imagine how great the darker, brighter ones are.
Online-here! and at departmental stores nationwide.
Until next time, tc.
