I love and feel immensely proud when I see a Pakistani brand making its way into the line of favorites of many. And Luscious Cosmetics is one brand that is ruling everyone’s mind , be it, their eyeliners, lipsticks, blushes (I personally am a huge fan of their blushes) and of course The Face Contour Kit.

Let’s take you to a Luscious ride 🙂

The Brand Claims:

Whether you are a beginner or expert, this kit is designed to help you highlight, define, and sculpt your features in a few easy steps. Featuring 4 silky, blend-able powder shades that work together to create celebrity-grade contours on any complexion or face shape. Advanced light-adjusting technology ensures the results always look natural. Use the contour shades for shading/defining, the highlighter for emphasizing and the illuminator for a sexy candlelit glow.

My  Thoughts:

May I please borrow good 5 minutes to just fully unleash how smitten I am by its packaging. I am head over heels with its artistic metallic packaging. To me, the metallic packaging gives it a luxurious appeal and in addition to this, protects the product much, much better. Girls, it’s sturdy and trendy; and I love it! ❤

If you are new to the contour world, fret not for this kit comes with an enclosed illustrated guide booklet that guides you through the techniques of highlight and contour.

Luscious Cosmetics Face Contour Kit brings you 4 powders, a darker contour, a medium contour, a highlighter and an illuminator. I love the fact that they are formulated keeping in mind the skin-tones of Asian women, because trust me guys, hell breaks loose when we brown girls set our foot out to search that perfect contour shade.

All four of them are highly pigmented and gives off a really natural finish. The product blends well, stays put and looks good. 😉
I use the darker contour to define my cheekbones, jaw line and nose. Absolutely love the chisel it gives off.
Medium shade is my muse for the forehead and sometimes the nose. Actually, whether I want to use the darker or medium shade for my nose depends on my mood (I know it’s weird). If I am not in the mood for contour thingy, or to be more precise, lazy, I just grab a fluffy blush and use the medium shade to add warmth or a wash of color to my face so that I do not look like a zombie.Haha! 😀

Now, now, now! Let’s talk about the highlighter. I was a tad bit disappointed with it. Perhaps, it is meant for girls who are more towards that subtle highlight. As for me, I like it a bit dramatic or vivid. It seems too dull for it to be a highlighter. In my view, the illuminator does a far better job and photographs so well.

The illuminator can work well if you’re going for the strobe technique. But you got to be careful, make sure it aligns well with your complexion for it is a white powder with a sheen and might appear a bit whitish in your photographs if it doesn’t go too well with your complexion.
If you ask me, the illuminator has to be my most favourite of all 4. I love the glow and luminosity it adds to my face.

This Luscious Face Contour Kit does a fairly good job. However, Luscious Cosmetics, needs to up the game with regard to bringing versatility to their shade range and of course
a bit of a drama in the highlight pan won’t hurt much ;).

All in all, Luscious Cosmetics have literally nailed it if you talk about the formulation of the powders. Finely milled and absolutely gorgeous upon application!

PROS:
-Sturdy packaging
-Comes with a illustrated guide
-Formulated keeping in mind Asian skin tones.
-You like a subtle highlighter
-Great pigmentation
-Easy to blend

CONS:
-You like a bit of drama in your highlighter
-Illuminator does not sit well with your complexion
-It is pricey
-Excess fall out within the kit

Just Concealer Things – Review Post

Sawadika! 🙂 (Thai obsession)

If you ask me what is that first place in my travel bucket-list , then it, my friend, is THAILAND!

Thailand’s on my mind these days! *dreamy sigh*
Everything is so picturesque about it… .

Ah… .I guess I must stop gushing about it and head straight towards the point of this post; because guys, when it I talk about my Thailand obsession, I daydream, and when you daydream then you can do nothing else :P.

Well, today, the post is dedicated to “Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer.” I am in shade “030-Classic Beige.”

Rimmel London 2

Claim: Banish the signs of fatigue and illuminate the eye area. With an oxygen complex. Lets skin breathe.

Packaging: It comes in a cutsie wee fawn colored tube in combo with the color blue. It’s sleek and slender, with a brush applicator inside.

Rimmel London
My thoughts: First and foremost, I am quite impressed by the way the consistency is formulated. Girls, it has a great coverage to offer, yet it feels light-weight and it does not at all give that heavy-ish feel. To sum up, it sure fulfills the “concealer” claim. As far as the highlighting part is concerned, for me it does not live up to its claim; I did not, to my utter disappointment, get that brightness or the illuminating effect that it claims to offer .

The sun’s lost its temper here in Karachi, and this concealer manages to battle the searing heat for about good 5-6 hours. And the best part is, it, at least in my opinion, does not appear cake-y upon application and I even did not see it creasing.

The applicator is similar to that of L.A girl pro HD concealers; the downside is common. It is so much of a heck to control the product when you squeeze the tube for the product to flow out. You may end up wasting it and mannnn, it hurts!

It is priced at PKR 565 and I got mine from Chase Value Centre, Karachi. Affordable and perfection; that’s what Rimmel’s about.

PROS:
-Light-weight.
-Pocket and travel- friendly.
-Does not appear cakey.
-Does not feel heavy.
-Affordable

CONS:
-The quantity should have been more.
-Hard to handle the squeeze tubing.
-Does not live up to its claim of highlighting.

I highly recommend this product and look forward to hearing about your experiences with this Lil buddy! 🙂

Until next time lovelies,
Love and fairy-dust all the way! ❤
