[REVIEW] Luscious Signature Lipsticks

I have always been hesitant wearing a nude lip color. I always fear that it'll wash out my appearance. Luscious Cosmetics always offer a shade selection that will suit olive skin tones. When we look at other companies to find our perfect nude sometimes we end up with a pale lip that isn't flattering. The 5 lipsticks from their Signature Collection that I will be reviewing are all neutral shades perfect for everyday wear, the colors are very subtle with good color payoff. The overall collection has 16 shades, majority are very neutral tones with pinks and warm rosy shades with one or two vibrant colors. These have a semi-matte finish that is not at all drying on the lips even after a couple of hours. With a lip liner you can assure these will last for more than 3 hours.

What Luscious Say:

Introducing Luscious Signature Lipstick collection.

Packaging:
The lipsticks come in an all plastic case. The packaging has a swatch at the bottom of the lipstick which is very accurate to the product shade. The case is really sturdy, not flimsy at all.

06 Creme Cocoa is a light nude shade that has a pink undertone



07 Moroccan Rose is a warm rosy pink which is more on the nude beige side. This is one of those "your lips but better" shades.






09 Pink Velvet is a light rosy pink with a hint of gold shimmer. The shimmer is really subtle. Its more pink then 06 Creme Cocoa




13 Coral Pink is a nude beige. I don't really notice the pink as described, its more of a light beige. 






15 French Rose is a warm rosy pink shade. Its slightly toned down then 07 Moroccan Rose



To Sum it up:

The deepest shade out of these is  07 Moroccan Rose which is my favorite. All of these have a semi-matte finish that's very moisturizing. I love the formula of these because I prefer matte finish lipsticks but with these they don't make your lips look dry. The most nude shade out of these is  13 Coral Pink which isn't entirely coral as described. With a lipliner these wear comfortably for more than 3 hours. They are super creamy and easy to apply. I usually have a problem with lipsticks feathering on the outer corner of my lips, these didn't give any issue of application. These have a mild vanilla scent but its not over powering, its similar to the scent in their Lip Coutures. 


What I like and dislike about these are the shade selection. Its great that each lip color is suitable for medium to tan skin tones but I wish that the collection offered more vibrant colors since some of these have very subtle difference between them.
