Products aside, Beauty Luscious' website itself is truly helpful. One aspect that stood out to me was that there was a guide on how to achieve a few of their looks that the models were wearing (under the Get The Look tab). This step by step guide let's their users recreate various glamourous looks without even leaving their bed or paying any money! It also helps those who are just starting out with experimenting make-up to be able to fully utilise their new products.
Onto the review - I received three samples from the lovely people of Beauty Luscious: The Luscious Mousse Foundation, The Flawless Finish Foundation and The Camera Ready Face Primer.
The Luscious Mousse Foundation $48AUD: This was the first time I've tried any mousse textured foundation before, so I was quite intrigued as to how my skin would react. I usually stay clear of anything labeled mousse as I do have quite oily skin and just assume that mousse type foundations will literally melt off my face. Surprisingly though this mousse foundation held up extremely well on my skin - especially considering I wore it to work and it was an extremely hot day. One thing I didn't like about this mousse foundation was it did make me look dry in a few areas. Which I find quite weird as I don't tend to have that many dry patches, this was then further enhanced when I powdered my face to finish. Being a mousse foundation newbie I am not quite sure whether I used the wrong brush for application (I used a Sigma Flat Top Kabuki on one side and my fingers on the other). Either way, the end result was quite impressive despite a few dry spots.
The Flawless Finish Foundation $45AUD: I'm not quite sure why but foundation reminded me a lot of the Revlon Colorstay Oily/Combination foundation. I think the finish of the foundations were quite similar as it was both matte, both had amazing coverage and long lasting power. One thing that the Flawless Finish Foundation worked better than the Revlon Colorstay was that it felt much lighter on the skin. I sometimes feel as though I can't wear Colorstay on extremely hot days as it is slightly on the thicker side and therefore makes my skin feel clogged and cakey. The Flawless Finish Foundation has the same great coverage but much, much lighter. Very impressed.
The Camera Ready Face Primer $50AUD: Now a days I'm pretty much a primer snob. Having found my holy grail primer (Benefit's Porefessional) I don't really test out any other primers. However, it's quite refreshing to find a product that makes you think twice about your current HG product. This is what happened when I used the Camera Ready Face Primer. Although it didn't fill my pores and create a ultra smooth canvas that Porefessional does - this primer makes your foundation/BB Cream/tinted moisturiser stick onto your face like no tomorrow. I'm pretty sure you could walk on the sun and your foundation would not melt off your skin - ha just kidding but you know I mean. This is absolutely an amazing primer if you have trouble with your make-up fading throughout the day.
Both foundations are available in quite a few shades (at the moment there are 6 different shades in stock for the mousse foundation and 7 shades in the liquid). If you are stuck on what shade will match you the best - just shoot an email through and I'm sure you will get a lovely helpful reply.
Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed with all three products I trialled. All products were crafted amazingly and had extremely astonishing results - certainly worth the slight hefty price tag. If you're based outside of Australia and you would like to get your hands on Luscious products head over to Luxola here - also get 15% off your first order!
