The LORAC Pro Matte Lip Colors: When a Flat Matte Finish Won’t Do

If you’re matte as hell, and you’re not gonna take it anymore! — and by “it,” I mean lipsticks with a flat matte finish, then check out LORAC’s line of long-wearing Pro Matte Lip Colors ($16 each).

Available in 12 shades that range from nude to vibrant, they’re super fancy-schmancy. They have a lovely, finessed matte finish that looks like a plush piece of expensive velvet, and a twist-up pencil tip that makes them easy to use for lining and filling in your lips.

The three I’ve tried — Coral, Violet and Magenta — easily last through drinks and snacks. Wear time is excellent.

Look for the Pro Matte Lip Colors now at LORAC counters and online.

Pro Palette Redux! The New LORAC PRO Palette 2

Published in: Daily Beauty

LORAC Pro Palette 2

The LORAC Pro Palette strikes again! Introducing the new LORAC Pro Palette 2 ($42), available now at Ulta stores and online.

Do you remember the LORAC Pro Palette from 2012?

I thought it was/is pretty good. Apparently it was also a hit, because LORAC made a sequel.

Here’s to hoping it’s more Terminator 2 than Hangover 3 (she said, raising a half-empty bottle of Glow Vitamin Water Zero).

The LORAC PRO Palette 2 is available now for $42 at Ulta stores and

P.S. Oh, boy. That navy shade in the top row will be epic for the dark blue liner/nails look. 🙂

LORAC Tantalizes With a Six-Piece Golden Bronze Summer Set That’s Good to Glow: The LORAC TANtalizer Glow to Go Collection

LORAC TANtalizer Glow to Go Collection

It’s time to glow! The new LORAC TANtalizer Glow to Go Collection

My propensity to wait until the last minute has again left me without any fabulous Memorial Day plans…

Unless Jay-Z and Bey call or I win that Mega Millions jackpot, in which case you’ll find me in the Maldives in one of those luxury huts on the water, I’m pretty much stuck at home, puttering away.

Putt, putt, putt…

Of course, Tabs loves the fact that I’m not going anywhere because it means he’ll have his assistant to kick around and assault with his 20 pounds of brute force whenever he wants.

I suppose I should be happy that he doesn’t weigh 25…

Even though I’m staying local, I’m not letting that stop me from at least looking like I went away.

I want a relaxed glow, dagnabbit!

LORAC’s new TANtalizer Glow to Go Collection couldn’t have come at a better time.

The LORAC Mint Edition Palette Plays It Cool

LORAC Mint Edition Palette

Minty! That’s LORAC’s Mint Edition Palette refreshing my eyes, cheeks and lips

Not that I need another clutch…but if someone were to build one based on LORAC’s Mint Edition Eye/Cheek Palette, I would not be averse to the idea.

I’m just sayin’.

LORAC's Mint Edition Palette

How cute is this!?

With the silver and black accents?

I used to rock a pair of mint green Bongo Jeans in the exact same color about a zillion years back (it had zippers and bows around the ankles), and now I suddenly have the urge to put my hair up in a side ponytail with a scrunchie and peg my pants…

Mint — it’s EVERYWHERE!

What year is this again? Did we just go back in time?

Wait — I don’t think so, but LORAC looks like they did for the retro design. This eye, cheek and lip set launched earlier this spring, but it looks like it could have been released a few decades before that.

Regardless of the palette’s release date, mint is having a moment — I’m seeing it on purses, shoes, nails, makeup — and Mint Edition is riding the wave…

LORAC's Mint Edition Palette

A complete look

LORAC included all of the basics for a minty fresh look in this $42 set (a $160 value) — eight eye shadows (four mattes and four shimmers), a powder highlighter, a powder blush and a full-sized liquid lipstick.

GLO Get Me a Doctor! The New $20 LORAC GLOgetter Eyeshadow Palette Is Giving Me a LORAC Attack This Summer

Published in: Eyes, LORAC, Makeup, Palettes, Product Reviews

The LORAC GLOgetter Palette

Wearing the $20 LORAC GLOgetter Palette on my eyes

With its classic summer colors, LORAC’s GLOgetter eye shadow palette was probably meant for fun-filled beach boardwalks, fair food and cruising down the coast with the windows rolled down…but I feel like a beauty bandit when I think of the price — only $20! — like I should be wearing black from head to toe and a mask like a cat burglar.

I can’t believe this 10-pan limited edition palette is only $20 at Ulta. At that price, it’s almost like stealing!

LORAC GLOgetter Eyeshadow Palette

These easy-to-blend powder shadows are consumate summer colors — the kind that look great with a tan — and when I wear them with primer, they last from 8-10 hours on my dry lids before I notice much creasing. No fallout, either.

LORAC GLOgetter Eyeshadow Palette

I bet you could totally Beyoncé it out with these and bang out some intense looks with loads of blending and layering, but I really like GLOgetter for simple looks with one or two shades.
