    Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

    This product is so underestimated! I just started working at Ulta and I needed to stock up on lipsticks that I could wear to work. All my coworkers said Lorac had the best lipsticks and that they have them all! I got Minimalist and Vixen. The colors are beautiful and the formula is so comfortable! They last forever, apply evenly, are pigmented, and have a nice smell and pleasant taste. I now understand why all my coworkers have the whole collection. I will be adding all of them to mine! Everyone should have these in their collection.

          Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

          I got this on a whim, and oh my gosh, I adore it. It goes on so smoothly, with gorgeous pigment, and it stays so well! I didn't expect it to last through much of anything, so I'm sitting at home just drinking whatever, snacking, and licking my lips, expecting to see a disaster when I walk past the mirror, only to find that it still looked perfect?? It's definitely NOT transfer proof at all, but I guess the pigmentation is so intense that the color stays on for a while anyway (is that how it works?). It faded as I kept drinking, but even then, it faded to a beautiful (if slightly uneven) red that I wasn't mad at.

          It was a little drying, and like I said, it's not transfer proof. But it's so beautiful and works so well, I'd happily recommend it. I have a feeling I'll be getting a lot more of these!

            Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

            I must admit, I had a gift set of Lorac Alter Ego lipsticks for months that I never even opened. I finally got around to wearing it. OMG! I am a self proclaimed lippie hoarder, so my collection is huge and it takes a lot to impress me. Where to begin? This lipstick is amazing. The pigmentation is wonderful. Just one swipe gives a lush, deep color. The lipstick is smooth and glides on. The texture is very easy to work with. The only con I see is that I wish it smelled like the delicious vanilla scent of the Alter Ego glosses. Other than that, 5 stars! The color selection is tops. So in love with Lorac products, they continually impress me! I just ordered them in 10 more colors, which brings my Alter Ego lipstick collection to 15 shades (and 16 glosses. Like I said, hoarder). Trust me, they are THAT good.

            Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

            I love this lip stick so much! I bought it about 9 months ago. It last log, applies and stay smoothie, and usually doesn't smear. The only time it has smeared on me is when I run my fingers over it or take a drink our of a glass or straw. I would definitely recommend this to others!

              I have several Alter Ego lipsticks but Duchess my favorite color of all time. I wear this nude almost every day. It's nude but not so nude that it makes me look like a corpse. The color Minimalist is too nude for my fair skin tone so I mix that with CEO which is a darker color. This stays on all morning, through my eating and drinking. I've always applied lipstick after lunch so it doesn't bother me that it doesn't last all day long. Some have commented that this lipstick is drying but I don't find that at all with Duchess. Love it so much I have 2 backups!

                  What is the difference between the Ego lipsticks and the Pro Matte Lip color lipsticks? Because I know they both have the matte finish, right?

                    A:

                    Correct, all Alter Ego Lipstick and PRO Matte Lip Color shades are highly-pigmented with a matte finish.
                    Alter Ego Lipstick comes in an original lipstick bullet form, whereas PRO Matte Lip Color comes in a retractable stick form that is slimmer than an original lipstick bullet. PRO Matte Lip Color also has a PRO tip that hugs the curves of your lips with precision that can be used to line and define the lips.
                    Alter Ego Lipstick is a matte lipstick finish but glides on and feels similar to a cream lipstick texture. PRO Matte Lip Color has a velvety-smooth, weightless feel.

                • Q:

                  I have the flower child shade, and is gorgeous but it is not matte at all. It says cream, and applies like cream. It also smears and bleeds and makes marks in the lips when I press my lips together. What do I need to do to make a better application? I have used liners and primers, and alone, same outcome. Is there a primer you would recommend. I am not familiar with a cream lipstick at all.

                    A:

                    Alter Ego Lipsticks do provide a creamy, texture but the finish should be matte.

                    Flower Child is a beautiful, bright shade. Try using a lip brush for a more precise and controlled application. First line your lips using the brush, and then fill in your lips using the brush. Continue to layer as desired.

                    A:

                    The Alter Ego Lipstick component was not designed to have the clear compartment at the bottom to be accessible. However, the bottom compartment is filled with the Alter Ego Lipstick formula, and it can be accessed. If you are interested in accessing this part of the component, you can do so by holding the bottom compartment with one hand and holding the gunmetal barrel (not lipstick cap) in the other firmly and pulling apart. The extra Alter Ego Lipstick formula sits below the gunmetal trim of the bottom compartment, so you will need a lipstick brush to reach.

                    A:

                    Alter Ego Lipsticks can be worn alone, but a lip liner does help achieve a precise lip line. LORAC does not currently offer a lip liner in Alter Ego shades, but you can achieve the same precision by using a lip brush with your Alter Ego Lipstick.

                    A:

                    Alter Ego Lipsticks come in array of shades from soft nudes to bright hues. Each and every shade can look good on a fair toned complexion, so it really depends on what look you are trying to achieve. If you're interested in trying a beautiful coral shade, we recommend trying Flower Child or Girl Next Door. Flower Child offers a nice pop of color for a bright coral finish, whereas Girl Next Door offers a very soft light coral/peach finish.
