Ather Shahzad Master Lipstick and Lipgloss Palettes by Luscious Cosmetics [Review]


Luscious Cosmetics recently partnered with Shahzad Raza of the iconic Ather shahzad Duo, and launched a Master Makeup Palette, a Master lipstick and a Master Lipgloss Palette, each of the shades in the palettes have been blended from Shahzad's own Master palette in a variety of shades and textures so anyone can create his signature look for a day or a night time look! I'm sharing my views on the lipstick and lipgloss palettes today! 

Luscious Claims: The Ather Shahzad Master Lipstick Palette is a collection of 5 high-fashion lip colors created by celebrity makeup artist Shahzad Raza for a multitude of looks from natural and pretty to bold and dramatic. Each shade is named after the supermodel who inspired it. A lightweight formula with an intensely pigmented, long wearing matte finish, each color can be worn alone or mixed together to create your own signature hue. Achieve a precise application with a full-size lip brush and mirror for touch-ups on the go.
The Ather Shahzad Master Lip Gloss Palette is a collection of 5 super creamy lip glosses created by celebrity makeup artist Shahzad Raza in a variety of shades and finishes for day-to-night wear. Each shade is named after the supermodel who inspired it. Try a different one each day or layer them together for customized color.

My Thoughts:
Both the palettes have sleek black packaging which is extremely travel friendly.  Each has five shades and contain a good quality lip brush, the shape of which is just perfect for applying lip products. At the back of both the palettes, the colors and their names have been provided (all shades have been named after the Pakistani top models).
The Lipgloss Palette has five shades; Nadia, Natasha, Vinnie, Zara and Rachel. Both Nadia and Natasha are transparent but the latter has a bit of shimmer in it. Vinnie is a lovely nude color, it's my personal favorite among the lot because it suits me so well. Zara is a shimmery bright pink translucent shade and Rachel is the darkest shade of all, a brownish maroon glossy color which looks extremely pretty on the lips. All the shades are non-sticky, but they're extremely soft and a bit goo-ey, when I dip in the brush to pick up a shade it moves the product in the pan and is reason that I've hit pan on my favorite shade Vinnie although I've used in twice only. And if you have pigmented lips the colors may show up the same on you so it's always a good idea to dab some concealor on your lips before applying the gloss. Staying time is about 1-1.5 hours, and it wouldn't be logical to expect more from a lipgloss anyways.     
The Lipstick Palette also has five shades namely Meesha, Mehreen, Nadya, Imaan and Cybil. Meesha is a bright red, a bit towards scarlet, Mehreen is a nude-y brown with orange undertones; it's a nice neutral everyday color , Nadya is a pretty coral leaning more towards orange; an instant attention grabing color. Imaan is a neutral beige color, it washes me out a bit so I wouldn't say it's my perfect nude and it also tends to settle into fine lines, but it helps create some exotic shades when mixed with the other colors. The last one Cybil is a beautiful bright fushcia shade. The shades are creamy mattes as in without any shimmer, but with a creamy texture which is an ideal combination, the pigmentation is insane at a single swipe, I love putting on each one of these shades, it a delight putting them on honestly. The staying time is 3-3.5 hours which is not bad in my opinion, and if you're eating or drinking before that then you definitely would need a touch up.
Price wise I think the lipstick palette is justified, the shades are super pretty and you get five of them in one handy palette, the lipgloss palette is however steeply priced but as I said if you're a lipgloss girl then this palette would make you truly happy!
Price And Availability:
The lipgloss palette is priced at pkr 2150 and the lipstick palette is priced at pkr 2250, available in superstores nationwide as well as online on their website www.iloveluscious.com
