I am a huge fan of LORAC Cosmetics because they make high quality cruelty-free products that are affordable. As one who is lipstick and lip gloss obsessed, I have to say that LORAC does both exceedingly well.
Seductress, a stunning rose, effortlessly glides across the lips and deposits color beautifully and evenly. It has the perfect amount of cushion, is comfortable on the lips, and it has a gorgeous velvety matte finish. It doesn't dry out the lips, even when worn without a lip balm, and gives me about 3 hours of wear-time. While I don't find the formula drying, I don't find it moisturizing either. This lovely formula neither bleeds, nor does it settle into lip lines, and it fades evenly. The pigmentation is utterly superb, and a single pass offers beautiful opaque coverage. LORAC Alter Ego Lipsticks have a warm fruity vanilla scent that fades soon upon application.

LORAC's Lip Lustre Lip Gloss in Peach Lustre. Amp up your look with LORAC Lip Lustre Gloss! Inspired by our top-selling 3D Liquid Lustre Eye Shimmer, these glimmering, glam glosses are paraben-free, super hydrating and infused with antioxidants of Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed and Vitamins A, C & E. Wear Lip Lustre alone or with your favorite LORAC lipstick for added sparkle and shine.
Peach Lustre is a gorgeous high gloss shimmering neutral nude peach that is lovely alone, or on top of your favorite lipstick. This gloss clings to my lips nicely without being too tacky– these are not sticky, but they do have a touch of tackiness which accounts for their tenacious ability to stay put. Those among you who prefer traditional doe-foot applicators may not be as quick to embrace their brush applicator, but I actually really like it. The brush is short, easily follows the contours of the lips, and doesn't have a tendency to splay. LORAC Lip Lustre Lip Glosses have a delectable scent that reminds me of Crème Brûlée, but, that too, fades quickly.
