Hope you’re doing fine. I dedicate this week to Makeup Revolution London 🙂 Like I had shared with you all in my earlier post, I did a mini haul from Makeup Revolution London. I have already reviewed one of the lipsticks, “Beloved”. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out to be a good buy for me 🙁 Now, it’s time to review my second lippie from this range. This one’s named Luscious. Is it a yay or nay for me? Read on to find out. 🙂
Makeup Revolution London presents this ‘Luscious Amazing’ lipstick, which will make you look even more beautiful. Non-sticky and long-lasting, this lipstick will spread evenly. This lipstick will give you an irresistible look.
It retails for about Rs. 450 online, but I got it for Rs. 225 after discount.
My Experience with Makeup Revolution London Luscious Amazing Lipstick.
Talking about the packaging, the packaging is the same as the ‘Beloved’ one, with the colour on top of the lid and the brand name printed in golden letters.
Luckily, I have had no issues with this lipstick so far 🙂 I had forgotten to mention the fragrance of the lipstick in my previous post. These lipsticks have a mild nutty fragrance that I like. I am however not sure if it would be a con for some.
The colour payoff is quite good. This shade is a peachy shade with orange undertones. It is quite pigmented and the colour comes out beautifully in one swipe itself.
However, I must say I was disappointed this time too, when I actually swiped it on my lips. I have come to realize that some products look great, but when you actually use it, you realize that it is not suited for you. 🙁
This was very true in my case. The colour somehow looked artificial on my lips. To be honest, if not worn properly, it seems as though the colour has just been smeared on your lips. This colour would look lovely on fair skinned beauties. This lippie is quite creamy and moisturizing but it settles into fine lines. Hence, please moisturize and exfoliate your lips well before applying this lipstick. I wouldn’t recommend this lipstick to dark skinned beauties.
The staying power is not very good. It lasts on the lips for about two to three hours. It also transfers very easily. It will not last a heavy meal. This lippie leaves a light stain behind which make my lips look peachy. 🙂
The only saving grace is that this lippie works wonders as a blush. It looks completely natural, imparting just the required amount of glow to the cheeks. It’s quite easy to blend, too. I am also thinking of using it as a base for my dark lippies. Please do let me know of any other uses for these lippies, guys.
Let me sum up the pros and cons for you.
Pros of Makeup Revolution London Luscious Amazing Lipstick:
- Affordability, especially after the discounts.
- Very creamy, moisturizing.
- Will suit fair skinned beauties well.
- Cruelty-free brand.
- Works well as a blush.
Cons of Makeup Revolution London Luscious Amazing Lipstick:
- Complete no-no for dark skinned beauties.
- Poor staying power.
- Transfers easily.
- Settles into fine lines.
Would I recommend/repurchase Makeup Revolution London Luscious Amazing Lipstick?
No to this particular shade. Will try out other shades only after reading reviews. If you are fair skinned and a peach lover, go for it.
Moral of the story: A lippie that looks good on someone else, might not necessarily look good on you 🙁 It is very important to keep the skin tone in mind while choosing lipsticks. I had read reviews of people who are fair skinned beauties.
I will see you soon, guys with more reviews and hopefully more wisdom 🙂 Keep smiling, stay beautiful 🙂
