Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

This is a really nice formula. Well pigmented, matte finish, and not too drying. I expect some dryness with a matte lipstick, but I've experienced far worse. The color I chose (Dutchess, a nice pinky nude) was perfect. Even application, and really great staying power with a lip primer. It did feather on me after a while, but I used a clear lip liner the next time and everything was fine.

    Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

    Great product, but I like to sometimes use two different lipsticks to create a color that best suits my skin tone and with this lipstick it doesn't look cery good when I do that. But the color still looks cery great and it is a true matte which is what I perfer

              Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

              This is my favorite lipstick ever- in addition to the Lorac Pro Matte Lip Color. Lorac truly knows what they're doing when it comes to lip products. I have most of the shades of this lipstick and it's just on point with everything. The colors are beautiful and they smell like vanilla, similar to MAC lipsticks. They're also super long wearing, including eating and drinking. My only complaint with this product is with the color Vixen. While the color is amazing, it smells terrible. The smell reminds me of what it smells like when we used to dissect frogs in Biology (formaldehyde?). My favorite colors are Goddess and Duchess. Goddess is a beautiful neutral/mauve/purple shade. It suits most skin colors. Duchess is my perfect nude. It has a slight rosy tone to it. I would recommend them to anyone.

                This dark red color is a great shade. I have found a lot of dark reds turn to a pink red on my lips. Love it when I want something a little more dramatic

                        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.
