Going all shades of pinks and reds for February! Todays special is Buff Pink by Luscious Cosmetics!
I did a review on the shade Raspberry - 16 last year and I absolutely loved it! So did this shade sweep me off my feet too?
Here's what I think:
Obviously, the packaging is the same. I happen to quite like it even though it is a bit chunky for my liking. Not cheap & plasticy at all. On the contrary it feels very classy to hold and again I love how you can see the shades at the bottom. I do wish Luscious put the names for these lipsticks at the bottom too instead of just the numbers, I mean whats the use of such pretty names if they're not going to be on the product?
The shade on me, is a medium blue toned pink and one of the prettiest pinks I own by far. As far as the formula is concerned, I am very much in love! It's not as moisturizing on the lips as Raspberry was, but is still comfortable to wear and this too, contains the goodness of the Jojoba (ho-ho-ba)! I love that the finish is something in between a satin and a matte! I do however, recommend exfoliating lips prior to application because the formula for this may accentuate any flakes on dry lips.
The pigmentation is pretty average so I do need to swipe a couple of times to get the perfect coverage (maybe its just in the winters its like that, Im not sure, I'll shall update you guys in the summer). Although this particular lipstick isn't crazily pigmented, it LASTSSSS! It lasts amazingly long on me. I wore it to university (where I eat and drink like there's no tomorrow) and by 2:30pm by friend randomly commented "Oh I love what you have on your lips! What is it?" and I really thought to myself, WHAT do I have on my lips because I was certain that with all the coffee, random junkfood and the salad I just ate, the lipstick could not have possibly survived. "Someone hand me a mirror!" I shouted and there it was, after 6 hours of wear (and tear :p) the color still pretty much there with a slight bit of fading. For a lighter shade of lipstick, I think this is brilliant! Me and my friends are hooked!
Do I recommend this? Yes I do! Just like the Shade Raspberry, this has won my heart and it's my new everyday lipstick. It's a color I probably wouldn't have tried on my own (because I love a bold lip) so thankyou Luscious for letting me try this! I don't know if this shade will flatter all skin tones so I strongly recommend visiting a local store nearby to try it on before purchasing.
-May accentuate dry bits and flakes.
