    Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

    I bought this lipstick at Ulta in the color "duchess" after seeing Camila Coelho use it for several of her tutorials. I'm so happy with this purchase. It has become my go-to lipstick. The color is so beautiful and the lipstick is so smooth and moisturizing (I recommend trying it in store). I really hope Lorac doesn't discontinue this line! I will be buying an extra one just in case!

      This lip color looks great with a tan. Also it is very cream and stays on fairly well.

      Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

      I have problems with lipsticks bleeding into my lip lines and somehow stumbled over this brand based on liking the color (socialite). I realized quickly they won't bleed and the color lasts for hours. I went back and bought one in girl next door (too bright pink for me), CEO (love this!) and finally Duchess - which is the perfect combo of CEO and Socialite. I plan to get a red one as we get closer to fall/winter. Love wearing lipstick instead of always lipgloss with no worries of bleeding. One issue: take all lipstick off before reapplying to avoid cakiness.

          Very matte finish, and not dry feeling on lips.
          I will buy more lipsticks from this brand. It does not last more than 6 hours, but it is fine.

          Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

          I bought the shade Girl Next Door. It's a pretty light pinkish coral shade. Pigmented, but very dry unfortunately. I probably would not buy another in the same line.

            I own it in dominatrix, and it's one of my favorite vampy colors right now. Would love to try other shades.
            It has a really nice formula, and a good wear time.

                  I love lipstick and had been meaning to try Lorac for a while now. I purchased this lipstick in CEO. It's a shade that is rather subtle for me but I think it looks really sexy. Day or night this has become my new favorite. I have 100+ lipsticks but I reach for this one every time. Love it.

                  I really loved that the color came out exactly like it looked on the stick, I use Flower Child and it comes out just as bright as it looks. I used it with the Urban Decay Ozone primer pencil and it lasted all day, great product!

                      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!
