LORAC Alter Ego Lip Gloss Collections

Last year I bought (and instantly fell in love with) the LORAC Love, Lust & Lace Lip Gloss Collection Gift Set. These lip glosses quickly became my favorites and I have been wearing them constantly!  My favorite from last year’s set is CEO, a beautiful dusty rose “my lips but better shade”.

While unfortunately that particular 6 gloss set is no longer available, these beautiful lip glosses can be bought as singles for $16 USD.  Available in 16 shades, you can find them at Kohls, Ulta and Lorac.com

lorac alter ego lip glosses | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comAt such an amazing deal of 6 glosses for $25, I was anxiously waiting for this year’s Lorac Alter Ego Sets to come out!

A few weeks ago I swatched the Happy Hour Hues set that is available at Kohls.  Unfortunately, even though they are beautiful, I felt as if the shades available wouldn’t work well with my skin tone.  So despite the great deal, I passed on buying the glosses.

My sister in law was at Ulta and sent me a picture of the A Lavish Affair set available there. She ask if it was the same or if the set of glosses are different.

I was so excited to discover that they had completely different glosses available at Ulta.  While the shades are similar in each set, they are just different enough.

These glosses are highly-pigmented and have a long lasting glossy color without feeling sticky or uncomfortable.  I think that the slightly vanilla scent is a pleasant scent that I love.

The tip of the applicator works great for the cupids bow as well as getting color in the corners of your lips.  Also the angle of the doe foot applicator gives a very smooth application.

I am so happy that I decided to buy this set.  Each of these colors is absolutely beautiful in a very different way.  I can’t decide which one is my favorite… probably Goddess, a purple tones mauve, which is another “my lips but better” shade.  So far I have really been enjoying wearing It Girl, the golden flecks are beautiful and when it wears off they still look great without looking crazy like some sparkly glosses can.  Bae is a beautiful pink toned neutral shade that is similar to Sex Symbol from the Love Lust & Lace set.

Sex Symbol from last year’s set is very similar to Bae in this year’s A Lavish Love Affair set from Ulta.

I thought for sure that Icon (cherry red) wasn’t going to work with my skin tone.  When I put it on, I realized that it is more of a glossy watermelon red than a brick red like last years Vamp red shade is. I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it is.  Dominatrix (deep burgundy) was in last years set as well and it makes my teeth look extra white.  I have not worn Diva yet, but I know that I will get a lot of use out of this set.
