            I have bought this in CEO and love it. For some reason, this particular color is clumpy and feels filmy on my lips. I returned it for a refund.

                    Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

                    This lipstick is by far the worst I have ever tried. I purchased this in Show Girl since I wanted a vibrant watermelon color for summer. After all the rave reviews, I decided to go to my local ulta store to swatch. With my luck, a tester wasn't available so I went ahead and purchased the last tube of this shade thinking that since everyone swears by this lipstick, it would be a good purchase. I was wrong!!! Although the color is truly beautiful and vibrant, the application is a chalky texture. Exfoliating, priming and moisturizing my lips didn't help the application at all! I tried to lick my lips to add moisture but that just made it worse, taking away most of the product. It exaggerates every line on the lip and is definitely not a good look. However, if applied with a gloss on top, it does make a difference for the better. I have tried many matte lip products that work way better and last much longer than this one but who wants to do that when the purpose of it is to be matte?! Being returned asap! Hopefully I could find a better quality brand that has the same or almost similar shade that is completely matte.

                    Love it stays on,bold color and no need to apply to my h due to it having a deep pigmentation. .my only suggestion is to apply a moisturizer on top to avoid the drying of your lips matte lipstick has.Other than that thus product is great!

                          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.
