    Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

    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.

        Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

        These are beautiful lipsticks--highly pigmented and they glide on, but the one con and it is a major one, is that these lipsticks are drying and they tend to show every crack in your lips--not the prettiest look. If you can overlook that and make sure to apply a generous amount of lip balm beforehand, these lipsticks are worth a try. I really wish LORAC would reformulate these and make these lipsticks more moisturizing...then this lipstick would be perfect.

        I purchased two shades: Show Girl, a bright pinky-coral that reminds me of MAC's Party Parrot, and Flower Child, a medium orangey-coral.

          Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

          This is my second Lorac Alter Ego purchase. I just purchased this lipstick in the color 'Seductress'. I was hoping it was going to be a little bit of a deeper rose color, but I still love it. I often buy MAC lipsticks; however, decided to give this a try because there isn't a MAC that is close by :/. It's definitely comparable, if not better. Even application and doesn't look clumpy. Keep in mind that I always use a lip primer (NYX). I think most lipstick wearers make the mistake of not applying some sort of moisturizer and that is what makes lipstick look clumpy and unappealing. Please restock Dominatrix... I've been trying to buy for awhile!

            I was having a very long overdue moms night out. New dress, shoes, and yes even splurged on new lipstick. This is now my favorite brand. The quality and color is amazing. It truly made my lips feel so beautiful. It was a little pricey (16) but it was so worth it. I am defiently buying more of this line. I also have very sensitive skin no issues. It's weird how one little tube of lipstick can make such an impact. I am going back to buy lighter and natural shades. I am not a big make up fan like natural looking but for special occasions love the pop of color.

                I'm a lipstick junkie and I'd have to say that LORAC lipsticks run with the best of brands, if not better! They have a good range of colors for any occasion and they're long lasting. I've tried many prestige brands and this is a staple in my makeup bag.

                    A:

                    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.
