    I think this is one of the creamiest feeling lipsticks I've ever had. It applies very nice and the color is well pigmented and very shiny. I like it.

      Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

      I think this is a pretty great product. The first time I bought this lipstick and swatched it, it was a little sheer. But after wearing it for a day I thought the color payoff was much better. I think it looked better on the lips than on the face. The lipstick is a little sticky though and I used a translucent powder to make it matte. But overall great lipstick.

        I would not recommend this color for pigmented lips. I have to mix it with a purple lipcolor and it looks great. This color would look smashing on pink lips without any mixing.

          I may have a new favorite lipstick. These Lorac Satin Lipsticks are a good fit for me. I have issues with Atopic Dermatitis and a lot of Matte lipsticks are way too drying for me. These feel very nice on the lips and do not seem to irritate my extremely sensitive skin.

                I like this lipstick, I'm not sure what makes it great, I think it's the high pigmentation. I got Pin Up and it's MUCH brighter than I thought, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it looks good with my complexion. I would like to try one of their mauves sometime. It is less drying than a lot of mattes as well.

                  These lipsticks are quite nice. They seem pretty moisturizing, nice smelling and pigmented. I love a very medium neutral lip. I chose Cat Lady for my pinky nude shade and Exhibitionist for my more warmer nude. Both are lovely and work great with my Buxon Undercover lip liner. I've been spending my money on palettes, finally realized I have too many eyeshadows and no good lip products. I have really enjoyed the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty. WooHoo.

                    Hi, I just bought this Alter Ego lipstain in CEO, and although I love the color snd the velvety way it glides on, I wish it would last longer so that I wouldn't have to reapply so often. Is there something I need to do to make it last longer?

                      Make sure that your lips are well hydrated before you apply the Alter Ego Lipstick so that your skin does not pull in the lipstick looking for moisture.

                      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.

                      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.
