Our Full Review of the Luxy Dating App: Is This "High-End" Dating App Worth Your Time?

The starting page of our Luxy reviewWe spent a lot of time putting together this review of the Luxy dating app. It positions itself as a dating app for “high-end singles” that promises to help you “connect with “the successful and attractive.” Put simply, it’s an app for rich singles to meet each other. It has one of the most expensive premium memberships out of all the online dating apps and websites we have reviewed.

The question is: is it worth the money?    

We have seen plenty of online dating services that walk the walk, only to leave guys disappointed once they invest in a premium membership. That’s a travesty, especially at “high-end dating” prices.

This is why I like to write these online dating reviews. It gives you the chance to discover what the websites are really like without having to pay money upfront.

In this Luxy review, you’ll discover how easy it is to date successful and attractive women from your city using this website. You’ll discover whether it’s a cut above the free and cheap mainstream online dating services, plus what you’ll actually gain from investing in a premium account.

How I Reviewed Luxy Dating App
The review below goes into great detail about what you’ll get with a free profile and a premium membership at onluxy.com. I started out by testing the free profile to see if that’s enough to get me any dates. Once done, I paid for the premium membership, which has more features than the free one.

I sent messages to well over 50 women and noted how much attention I received. How many women would look at my profile? How many would reply to my messages? How many would share contact details with me? For those that respond I actually set up dates with them to really understand how responsive and committed the women using this site are.

Read on to find out and see how this compares to other online dating websites.

Our Recommendation

Onluxy.com: Our Recommendation

Luxy Matches

Luxy tries to maintain the quality of its user base by making new users jump through a number of hoops to get in.

First off, you’ll need to go through a 24-hour “vouch” process, where existing members vote whether to allow you in or not. You’ll need more than 50% of voting members to vouch for you to be granted a free profile. It’s not clear what criteria they are using, but Luxy suggests it helps for you to fill in your profile while verifying your photo and your income.

Don’t panic, though. I’m a bald 32-year-old dating/relationships writer and I was still successfully vouched by the Onluxy community. It felt good to be part of the in-crowd 🙂

Having said that, it’s not the end of the world if you don’t make the grade. You can skip the vouch process by paying for a premium membership.

A premium membership is expensive, but a free account will waste you a lot of time

You’ll need to verify your photo in order to message other users, but with a free account you’ll only be able to message those who “liked” you. Similar to mainstream apps like Tinder and Bumble, you’ll have to swipe on members one-by-one, deciding whether to “like” them and hoping they “like” you back.

The key difference here is: you only get 30 swipes per day with a free Luxy account.

You can buy “boosts” so that your profile is more likely to be seen by other members. But it’s almost undoubtedly more cost-effective to buy a premium account.

Membership Benefits

Luxy is packed with high-quality women

I bought a one-month premium account for $79.99 on sale (it’s usually $99.99) and this gave me the opportunity to message any Luxy member without them having to “like” me first. It also allowed me to see who had viewed my profile and who had already “liked” me. (There are other benefits, which I’ll list later).

Browse 1

Just as I’m not a six-figure earning CEO, neither are all the women on Luxy.

Nevertheless, the quality of the women is high. It’s hard to stumble across a laughably unattractive woman. I guess the vouch process helps to take care of them.

It’s not the quality of the women that is the biggest advantage of an exclusive dating website though. It’s the quality of the men.

The barriers to entry mean that women probably aren’t being bombarded with messages from unattractive low-quality morons. Your message is less likely to get lost in the noise.

What’s more, a woman may be more inclined to see you as a half-way decent guy and check out your profile, if only because you bypassed the barriers to be accepted by the Luxy community. As with a high-end nightclub, the fact you got in implies some value on its own.

Also, if women are paying to be a part of the website, they’re more likely to be serious about meeting someone.

My response rate would suggest this is the case. Out of the 50 women I messaged, I received 21 replies and swapped contact details with 7 of them.

Luxy.com is not a well-designed website

I tested the desktop version of onluxy.com and was frustrated with several parts of the website’s design.

For example:

  • Before purchasing a premium account, I was told 20+ people had “liked” me. Upon purchasing an account, I was able to discover that several of these were based in a different country and a couple were men!
  • I continued to receive a steady stream of likes and profile views after purchasing a premium account, but again these were rarely people from my country.

User Profiles on the Luxy dating app

  • The “Who Likes Me” page barely shows any details about the people who like you. You see a picture, their name and one (seemingly random) detail. To find out where they live, you have to click through to their profile. To “like” or discount them, you have to navigate back to the previous page.

OnLuxy Who Likes Me

  • When searching for women, you can’t set a maximum age younger than 28.
  • The website doesn’t tell you how many miles away other users are. You can’t filter your searches based on this either.

You’d expect more from such an expensive service. Still, the website is bearable to use. Most guys would put up with it, if it meant securing a date with a high-class woman – and this is absolutely possible.

Is Luxy worth the money?

We paid $79.99 for a one-month Luxy Black account. It was on sale when we bought it, so you might have to pay the full price of $99.99. Just like a high-end nightclub, the price is deliberately high to scare off lower-class people.

For Luxy’s target audience, $99.99 a month is loose change — and perhaps therefore worth the money. The same way that blowing four figures on a table with bottle service is worth the money to them.

Are there better options out there?

Still, we should mention that it’s absolutely possible to hook up with great women online without breaking the bank.

When we reviewed Adult FriendFinder, we found there were plenty of great women happy to message us back and meet us super quickly. These women were responsive and open, so we didn’t have to resort to too much small talk to land a date. We’d suggest you give Adult FriendFinder a try before blowing the big bucks on Luxy if you’re only looking to hookup. If you are 100% committed to finding a long-term partner with money Luxy is going to be a better option.

Positives and negatives of Onluxy.com

Overall, our feeling about Luxy are mixed. So here’s a quick summary of what we liked and didn’t like.

Positives
Negatives
  • High-quality women;
  • Exclusivity gives you a higher chance of being noticed;
  • No bots, scammers or cam girls in sight.
  • Frustrating website design;
  • Expensive;
  • Most “likes” and profile views came from women outside my city.

Luxy profiles, pictures, and members

Profile 1

Luxy profiles are extensive enough to encourage members to paint a detailed picture of themselves. Most members have taken the time to do this. As mentioned before, the entry fee encourages people to take the website seriously.

You must have your photo verified by Luxy in order to message people. You’ll be given a crown symbol to show off on your profile if you’re a premium member. Luxy also encourages you to verify your income, although the women who chose to do this were in the minority.

Nevertheless, you’ll be impressed with the overall quality of the women using this website.

Luxy.com design

As mentioned above, there are a number of frustrations when it comes to navigating luxy.com. We didn’t test the iOS or Android apps. With that said, the desktop version of luxy.com is bearable enough to use — and the aesthetic of the website does emanate a touch of class.

Luxy messaging and chatting

You can leave unlimited messages to members all over the world if you have a premium account. You can send emojis and images too if you wish. Most of the women were responsive, and there wasn’t a single woman who sent sketchy links.

The chat feature is pretty straightforward. However, your messages get deleted when you log into a different device.

What can you do with a free membership on Onluxy.com?

With a free account, you can send messages to women who you “match” with. That is more generous than a lot of other high-end online dating websites, although free profiles are 40% less likely to be shown to other members during the “match” process.

Also, remember you’ll have to pass the “vouch” process to be granted a free account in the first place.

There is no sign of any advertisements on this platform.

Pricing

There are two premium accounts. Luxy BLACK and Luxy Platinum. When we reviewed Luxy, it was running a 30% off sale on these memberships.

Luxy Black Membership

  • see who has already liked them;
  • see who has viewed their profile;
  • change their profile name;
  • “like” as many profiles as they wish.

Luxy BLACK members get a “crown” on their profile to show off their premium status. They will also get more exposure than free members. In fact, on average they are shown to 40% more people.
