Lorac: Review & Swatches

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


I'm obsessed, crazy about, in love with Lorac Cosmetics. I've always liked the brand, but lately they've stolen my heart. From their amazing pigments to their long wearing products, they've definitely won me over. I received this lovely package the other day for review and needless to say, I was very excited.


(Disclosure: Products received above were sent for consideration from PR)

I loved everything.. and I mean... EVERY SINGLE THING.





This bronzer is absolutely stunning. I honestly have nothing like it in my collection. Warm Glow bronzer is described as a light bronze with pink undertones. Retail is $28.




This was probably the most exciting product I received. I had been eyeing the product on the website for some time. The reason I love it is because it's unique. It's literally a top coat for your eyeshadow. It adds that perfect pop to make any eye look 3-D. When it comes to this product, a little goes a long way. Retail is $16.

"Carol Shaw, Celebrity Makeup Artist to the stars, created 3D Liquid Lustre to AMP up your everyday natural eye makeup look! This paraben-free, long-lasting, shimmering top coat can be applied over eye shadow or alone on eyes and cheeks for luminous, prismatic, 3-Dimensional sparkle and shine. Refuse to be 1-Dimensional and go 3-D with LORAC!

Use with your favorite LORAC eye makeup palettes or with some of LORAC’s best eye shadows! Simply shake bottle and squeeze a small amount on the back of your hand. Gently pat onto eye with fingertips. Apply more for a more dramatic eye makeup look."


Lorac has beautiful glosses. They've extremely pigmented and wear for quite a while.



"Multiplex 3-D Lip Gloss"

Get glam, glossy, gorgeous lips with Multiplex 3-D Lip Gloss! This innovative, paraben-free Lip Gloss contains holographic pigments for multidimensional, high-lacquer shine and vibrant, long-lasting color. Its unique formula is infused with antioxidants to help nourish and protect while the creamy, moist texture help lips look silky-smooth and ultra-glossy. The custom, pro brush is designed to easily hug the curves of the lips for a super sexy 3-D pout!

Polised is described as Light Opalescent Pink. It's gorgeous. Retail for $22.



Haute is the perfect baby pink shade. Retail for $22.

Couture Shine
Paraben-Free Liquid Lipstick – Sheer to Pigmented Finish
Couture Shine Liquid Lipstick provides a glamorous looking pout and luxuriously smooth feeling lips with its creamy, long-wearing formula. This innovative, paraben free liquid lipstickformula features light-reflecting Mother of Pearl to keep lips soft, smooth, supple and naturally rejuvenated. Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba and Sweet Almond Oil help hydrate and fill in fine lines, plus a natural anti-oxidant Oriza Sativa Bran Extract keeps lips protected. 

This has to be my new favorite lipgloss. It's actually called a "liquid lipstick" and it lives up to its name. It's very pigmented and has extreme long wear. You don't have to re-apply every five minutes like most lip glosses.




Vintage is the most GORGEOUS nude ever. I think this product was made for me. YUP. Retail for $22.



I normally don't love reds on me, but for this gloss, I'll make an exception. This particular gloss was featured as mini in their Holiday 2011 Collection. Retail for $22.

I've never tried self-tanners for fear of being orange (ahhh!), so you can imagine how surprised I was when that didn't happen with this product. I tried a small amount on my hand to see the gradual tan that occurred. I loved the color pay off I received. I'm tempted to try it all over my body and see how that goes. Retail is $34.
