    I have been looking for A matte that lasts a long time and does not make my lips feel like the Sahara desert... I love wearing this brand and the color is gorgeous!!! It feels great all day long, and only need to freshen after eating... Every time I wear it my hubby wants kisses and tells me how gorgeous I am! Love!

      Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

      I picked up CEO a while back but, just haven't gotten around to do reviews until now. This wasn't something I was really intent on purchasing but, a nice little sale is what gave it the edge. It's a pretty color. Comes off more brown on my lips than I had expected. The formula is a little confusing to me. It's not a matte where you're lips are hurting and you feel like you need lip balm but, they aren't moisturizing either. I think they have a wonderful color variety but, these aren't my favorite. I feel like there are other brands out there that have a better formula with just as good of a color variety for around the same cost or less. I don't hate them. I'm just not overly impressed.

                Comments about Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick:

                Love this lipstick in Alter Ego. I was looking for a violet color that wouldn't be too harsh-- something with a more ash grey undertone, rather than a bright red or blue base. This fit the bill and was a fantastic price, to boot. Even for a violet, this lipstick looks great for the office. I just dab it on very lightly, blend it with my fingertip, and then blot. It's almost neutral, with a hint of violet. Perfect for my skin tone (medium, with yellow undertones). Adore it. My only quibble is how quickly it wears off, but 1) it's a traditional lipstick formula and 2) not a stain, so that's pretty much par for the course. I re-apply throughout the day with no trouble. This is my first time buying Lorac and I'm definitely a fan.

                      I'm fair-skinned, so coral tones are my go-to. "Girl Next Door" goes on so much lighter than it looks, almost as a pale pink. I was hoping for an immediate matte finish, and it stays creamy for a while. Once it does dry, it makes lips look flaky and dry. Overall disappointed in this product.

                          A:

                          The Alter Ego Lipstick component was not designed to have the clear compartment at the bottom to be accessible. However, the bottom compartment is filled with the Alter Ego Lipstick formula, and it can be accessed. If you are interested in accessing this part of the component, you can do so by holding the bottom compartment with one hand and holding the gunmetal barrel (not lipstick cap) in the other firmly and pulling apart. The extra Alter Ego Lipstick formula sits below the gunmetal trim of the bottom compartment, so you will need a lipstick brush to reach.

                          Alter Ego Lipsticks can be worn alone, but a lip liner does help achieve a precise lip line. LORAC does not currently offer a lip liner in Alter Ego shades, but you can achieve the same precision by using a lip brush with your Alter Ego Lipstick.

                          A:

                          Alter Ego Lipsticks come in array of shades from soft nudes to bright hues. Each and every shade can look good on a fair toned complexion, so it really depends on what look you are trying to achieve. If you're interested in trying a beautiful coral shade, we recommend trying Flower Child or Girl Next Door. Flower Child offers a nice pop of color for a bright coral finish, whereas Girl Next Door offers a very soft light coral/peach finish.
