Lorac Alter Ego Lipsticks

Good morning beautiful friends!

This morning as I have some time to myself (while baby bear is napping) I find that my mind keeps wandering to makeup. Since its usually filled with mommy thoughts, its so refreshing to focus on something for me. I think its important to find a good balance.

I’ve recently purchased the Alter Ego lipsticks from Lorac because I don’t own many lipsticks and am trying to be more adventurous with my makeup. All the lipsticks I’ve owned before are terrible quality. I usually just chose the cheapest of cheap because deep down I knew I wouldn’t use them. This time, I thought to myself that if I got good quality lipsticks then maybe I would be more encouraged to use them!

I picked up 4 shades. Pinup, Nymph, CEO, and Supermodel. All four shades are highly, highly pigmented and go on extremely smooth! I’m very impressed to say the least. I couldn’t believe how silky they are. As for the pigmentation, I literally dabbed the lipstick to my lip the first time I tried it and it was full on color.

Below in order from left to right are Nymph, Supermodel, CEO, and Pinup.

Nymph is, what I consider, barbie pink. It’s cool pink according to the site. Supermodel is a warmer peach pink. CEO is my favorite of the four. It’s a gorgeous mauve or dusty rose color. The finally, Pinup, which is a beautiful classic red color. OBSESSED!

 

A couple of things I struggled with when trying this lipstick were:

1) I couldn’t get it to stay even. Maybe this is my incompetence with lipstick, but I felt like I had to keep applying it and rubbing it to get it to stay even.

2) It left my lips feeling very dry after wearing it. I had to pile on lip balm once I removed the lipstick. It is a matte formula, so that would explain why it could be drying.

 

On the plus side, these lipsticks last for a long time and are such vibrant colors! I think if you plan to just use them on rare occasions they make a beautiful addition to any makeup collection.

I’m already wanting to add more colors to my collection including Dominatrix and Show Girl! (:

Let me know if you’ve tried these lipsticks and what you think of them!

See ya later! (:

    I love trying new lipsticks and these are gorgeous shades. I’ve never tried Lorac before but I totally hate when lipsticks leave my lips feeling dry, so I don’t know that I would love how it wears.

    I’ve never tried any of Lorac’s lipsticks before. I love their eye shadow palettes though. I’m not to big on matte lip sticks because I don’t like dry lips but these are worth a try!
