    Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

    I brought Nymph thinking it would be a cute pink that would seamlessly match my tone, but it's way too bright. It's almost a Nicki Minaj pink. The formula is weird. It's super chalky on the lips. It dries to a cracked look(even with a primer underneath), and it just isn't good. I'm returning this product ASAP.

      Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

      I was super excited for this lipstick but was let down. I got Southern Belle, which is a beautiful color, but sooo chalky and dry. Does not go on smooth at all. I never use it. I've wanted to return it but can't find the box. For the price, there are so many other lipsticks that are much better, even in the drugstore. Maybe the other shades have a better formula...

        Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

        I love a bold, beautiful lipstick, so it was easy enough to understand that I fell head over heels with the Lorac Alter Ego color selection. What I didn't love was the application of the lipstick. It was extremely spotchy. I understand that it is a matte lipstick. I love a matte lipstick and own several. For some reason no matter what I tried, I couldn't get this one to work for me.

        Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

        My experience with this lipstick is overall really good. I got it in the shade 'Pin Up' which is classified as a 'classic red'. I'll start off by saying it's pretty difficult to work with. Not a car lipstick, because you will get it all over your face. I think the only reason it's a little hard to manage is because it's so pigminted. It's one of the most opaque lipsticks I own. But if you have a few minutes in the morning to really perfect it, you will be happily surprised what you'll end up with.

        On the down side, I don't have especially dry lips, but this sank into the lines in my lips just a little bit and that wasn't anything I couldn't tolerate. THIS PRODUCT HAS A FORMULA ON THE DRY SIDE.

        However, the product is absolutely breathtaking on the lips and this is a TRUE red and very flattering on fair skin tones.

        PACKAGING IS AMAZING. It's so sleek and simple and I love it!

        Would not recommend for people that have naturally dry lips.

          Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

          I bought this lipstick in Pin-Up. It was the first red lipstick that I had ever bought and it was great! So smooth to put on and such a bright red color. I want to wear it all the time and I am definitely thinking about purchasing different colors of this lipstick. The ONLY downside that I really noticed was that towards the end of the night, it started to clump a little bit on my lips. But, this was after at least 7 hours worth of wearing it.

            OMG I am so obsessed with these Alter Ego lippies. The colors are SO bold and pigmented, and stay all day long. They have a matte finish, which I love, and can be topped with a gloss if you want a little shine and dimension. Addicted!! :)

                I'm a late 40 something, fair skinned and like to go with a less madeup look for Summer. Less eyes and more lips seems to be the look this year. I purchased Vixen and as a first-time Lorac product user, I'm hooked. I get so many compliments on the color (fuscia) by young and old. Perfect amount of color to compliment the no-makeup look.

                  I want everyone. I love the colors and the feel. I put it on before work, drink my coffee, soda, eat breakfast, snack, and lunch, attend endless and pointless meetings and still look fantastic. I usually have to reapply after lunch and then I am good until I get home.

                      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!
