Latest LORAC Reviews

Behind the Scenes Eye Primer
1.0
Created with Sketch.

25 days ago

This primer irritated my eyes! I wore it daily for a few weeks and somehow never made the connection. As soon as I started doing my makeup my eyes would get watery, and they were watery throughout the day. I tend to have sensitive eyes, so it took me a while to realize that it was worse than usual. One day it just dawned on me, I switched back to my MAC primer, and no more watery eyes. I feel so bad that I did that to my poor eyes for so long. Mine was from a Pro Palette 3 that I bought recently.

Alter Ego Hydrating Balm Stain - Thrill Seeker

Thrill Seeker is a "scarlet red" - a true red, neutral toned, and a smidge too bright/bold for me for workdays. Love that it feels moisturizing like a balm, gives full coverage with one swipe like a lipstick, has a satin almost semi-gloss finish, and provides some lip staining. I like the packaging as well, it feels nice in the hand and sturdy though not heavy. It's the kind of lipstick tube where the cap is nearly full length; it's a smooth, shiny gunmetal grey with some concavity on the base piece for better grip. Just my usual peeve - can't tell what the shade inside is unless you read the label. $19.

This was my first LORAC eye shadow purchase (Nordstrom Rack:) and I've tried most high end brands. The good: great color selection, soft and impressive longevity even without eye primer. I love the matte black which is a strong liner. However, despite all these wonderful things, I won't buy again due to the kick back and mess it causes. I barely touch my brush in the shadow and have a mess on my face if I don't blow some off the brush. This probably won't be a deal breaker for most, but for this working mom always in a hurry it is.
