THE BASICS
A while back Luscious released their new collection, the Ather Shahzad Master Makeup Collection containing lipsticks, lip glosses, eyeshadows, blushes and highlighters. In short, a complete package for every makeup lover. Today I am reviewing two of their Lip Palettes that contain 5 shades each.

MY OPINION
I am not a fan of lip palettes, I find them a nuisance but Luscious very quickly changed my mind. Ather Shahzad collaborated with them to release a lipstick and lip gloss palette inspired by his favourite models. They reached me VERY beautifully packed with gold glitter and confetti.

I instantly liked the sleek, black hard plastic packaging. The palettes are very sturdy but lighweight, making them perfect for traveling and for even keeping them in your handbag. Both the palettes come with a very handy lip brush and a good-sized mirror. I love the brush and never need to dig in for any other.

In the Lipstick Palette what wow-ed me most, was their gorgeous colours and pigmentation. There is everything from nude to red to wear it alone or mix n match. Meesha is a lovely tomato red. Mehreen looked bleh in the pan but transferred to a gorgeous pinky brown on the lips. Nadya is my favourite of the bunch, a beautiful pinkish coral. Iman is a very flattering nude which I immensely like. And Cybil is a bright, bold, hot pink. All shades have an amazing colour payoff and a semi-matte finish. 

Although their wear time is slightly disappointing. They start to fade from my lips after 2 hours and fade quite unevenly leaving the inner portion empty. There is also a massive outcry on Luscious's steep prices of this collection, considering in the past Luscious has been a very affordable brand. To be honest, as far as this Lipstick Palette is concerned it is worth the Rs. 2250 price tag. You are getting 5 gorgeous lipsticks which every person is definitely gonna like, you can create more shades, the lip brush is amazing and you can take the palette on vacation not needing to worry about the space. Worth it!

The Lip Gloss Palette on the other hand did not appeal me this much. For one, I am not a lip gloss fan I don't wear them often. And two, I did not find the colour collection in this lip gloss palette too impressive. Nadia is a pinkish nude, almost clear on the lips if worn alone, same goes for Natasha, a shimmery peach, and Vinnie, a brownish nude. Zara is a bubblegum pink with silver shimmer. And Rachel is a dark maroon-ish lip gloss. All lip glosses are quite sheer except for Rachel which has sheer-medium coverage. But none of them are long-lasting and I personally prefer to layer them over the shades from the Lipstick Palette for a glossy touch. The Lip Gloss Palette is not worth the hefty price and I'd most likely skip it.

MY RATING
The Lipstick Palette is a must-have if you are into lipsticks, love playing with colours, travel a lot or are a makeup artist.
The Lip Gloss Palette did not wow me. It is pretty average.
