    Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

    I love this lipstick in "Supermodel" with the NYX lip liner in natural. The only problem is that it can be drying, clumpy, and emphasize dry patches on your lips. I find that if you use an eos lip balm underneath, it applies LIKE BUTTA

    Love the color of this lipstick. It has a nice matte finish. The only drawback for me is it tastes a little weird but it won't stop me from buying it again.

        COLOR IS BEAUTIFUL BUT IT WENT ON TOO THICK. IT CLUMPED UP AND LEFT GAPS OF SKIN SHOWING ON MY LIPS NO MATTER HOW LITTLE I APPLIED.

          Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

          I bought two of these lipsticks, CEO and Duchess. I love CEO but returned Duchess because it applied quite patchily. I may have just gotten a fluke. They are a bit drying but that's the norm with matte lipsticks. Be sure to exfoliate before you apply because any dry patches will be very apparent. The pigmentation is amazing and CEO is such a great color. They also smell like vanilla, which is a plus to me!

            Been using this lipstick " Southern bielle" shade and gotta say my first of favorites. It really knows how to brighten up your face but dries off too quickly. But, overall it is one of the best lipsticks I have ever owned. Try mixing it with lipgloss looks so glossy and classy.I personally have this lipstick everywhere I go with me I am pretty much a fan of this shade. I recommend this lipstick if you have color eyes, my beautiful green eyes come alive when I put on the makeup and I have medium skin color. In love with the look. Thanks Lorac I am officially your customer

              I absolutely love this lipstick. It has become my new favorite. It's my first matte and can't believe I just started wearing it. I wear the shade everyday and everywhere; work, store, special occasions you name it. And it lasts, I don't have to apply it 10 times a day.

                    Alter Ego Lipstick in Nymph is a cool pink shade that looks great on all skin tones. To achieve the best look with this shade, apply lipstick with a light handed patting technique until you reach the perfect cool pink shade that you desire.

                    Alter Ego Lipstick in Pin Up is more of a true, cherry red shade rather than a cool (blue) toned or warm red.

                    This product's shades are universally flattering across all skin tones. Try Flower Child (Coral) or Duchess (Rosy Nude); both shades are especially lovely on those with olive skin.

                    Yes, this product is highly pigmented and features shades that work well across all skin tones including dark complexions. We recommend choosing bright shades for a fresh pop of color. Jet Setter (Deep Fuchsia) (Item #:2271799) is gorgeous on dark complexions!
