Palettes -LORAC -PRO Palette 4

on 9/9/2018 12:43:00 PM


I'm a huge fan of Lorac, I have all the Pro Palettes and Mega Pro Palettes and pretty much any other palette that Lorac comes out with. I was super excited when I saw this 4th Pro Palette come out and snapped it right up. It's not a groundbreaking palette really, nothing mind blowing happening here color wise or formula wise either but despite that it's an extremely flattering palette for day to day use. I have olive green eyes and every color in this palette flatters my eye color beyond belief. Even my husband has complimented me each time I've worn colors from this palette and that always is a plus for me!

My favorite combination is Merlot and Black Currant, they give a gorgeous burgundy eye look that compliments my eye color. The top row is pretty much just basic mattes that compliment the shimmery shades on the bottom row. Rose Bud is the best color on the upper row besides Black Currant and I love the combination between Java and Midnight. Silver Mauve is a beautiful lid color and Soft Pearl makes a great inner corner and brown bone highlighter.

My only issue with this palette and the reason i gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 is that the staying power isn't as good as other Lorac palettes, I'm not sure why. The colors tend to fade within a 4 to 6 hour period and I need to retouch even when using a great primer like Urban Decay's Primer Potion.

Otherwise I love this palette, maybe it's not worth the $44 price tag if you have a similar palette you like but worth the $$ if you don't. LOVE!!!!

Liquid -LORAC -Sheer Porefection Foundation

on 8/26/2018 12:18:00 PM


I bought this in a fit of feeling like I had money, ha. It is pricey. However, it blew any other foundation I've used over the decades out of the water! Goes on easy, wears well (especially with primer), very little transfer. Did not break me out or give me any bumps. The airless pump packaging ensures that I got every bit of my investment out of this bottle, which lasted about 4 months (at the very end I just opened the whole thing and dug out what was left at the top). A lippie off since it is $$$, but to me worth the investment!

Lips -LORAC -Alter Ego Hydrating Balm Stain - Thrill Seeker

on 8/16/2018 5:00:00 AM

I picked this up on clearance for half price, so $9.50 before tax. It's a lovely true red, neither warm/orange nor cool/pink, truly neutral. It's neither a lipstick or balm, somewhere in between; I'd say similar to though different texture than the old Revlon Lip Butters. The case is very pretty and classy looking, metallic and shiny, clicks closed securely. The bullet is flat topped and the product applies smoothly and evenly. As a balmy product, it's not terribly long-lasting. It's a great quick red, doesn't require a lot of precision and fussing. Oh, and no weird smell/taste.

Lip Gloss -LORAC -A Lavish Affair Alter Ego Lip Gloss Collection


I bought one of these sets and ended up giving most of them away. The colors are really pretty in the package but they didn't really work out for me....

Concealers -LORAC -Porefection Complexion Pen

on 8/9/2018 6:01:00 PM

I'm very happy with my purchase of this concealer. ULTA originally was out of stock in my shade, but I did ultimately acquire it on July 5, and have used it daily since then. For reference, it retails for $23.00 for a 0.03 oz/1g stylo pen. Mine was purchased in store (vs online). I am in the Warm shade range and color CP1. This concealer is encased in a click pen style wand that dispenses the product through a triangular head. It's about the heft and size of a full-sized mascara tube but fits nicely in my small makeup bag. The triangled tip makes it easy for me to apply around my inner eye corners & nose. But what I love even more is that in addition to taking very little product (a few strokes) under my eyes to conceal and brighten, it also cleans up and sharpens contour very well! I don't using a brush to blend it, as I find that my fingers work very well, so I can't speak to blend-ability with tools aka sponges etc. But it works easily into my skin and stays put where placed. I do set it afterward with a "bake" (Ben Nye powder) applied with a makeup wedge, then remove any excess powder with a brush. On my older, dry complexion I am getting a full 8 hr. day of wear, and have also topped it off in the evening before going out to refresh my look. I find that it is build-able, but that I only have to use a very small amount to get my desired layer of coverage. For that reason I think it's a very good value. I am already planning to pick up another asap so that I don't have to switch it back and forth between my vanity and makeup bag. It is the type of item that you cannot see into; so when it's empty it might take me by surprise lol. I haven't tried the click-up method for fear it can't retract again, so try this at your own risk ;) One further note: My dark circles can be bad, so I always also routinely use an eye cream and corrector before applying -any- concealer.
