LORAC Alter Ego Hydrating Lip Stain | Review and Swatches

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

LORAC Alter Ego Hydrating Lip Stains, which comes in eight highly saturated buildable colors, seems more like a lipstick than a lip stain, in my estimation. Each of the five shades that I have can be sheered out, or built up for greater opacity. They cling to the lips like a matte lipstick, but they are lightly moisturizing and they have light sheen. I find that all of the shades that I have been testing glide across the lips effortlessly and deposit color evenly. I neither experience bleeding into lip lines, nor do I experience patchy uneven fading. They each have enough cushion for comfortable wear, and I receive several hours of wear from per application with greater longevity from the darker, richer shades.

  1. I am a fan of LORAC, but surprisingly I have never tried their lipsticks. I am fascinated by the flat top bullet. Secret Agent and Thrill Seeker would be great shades for me!

    1. I am too, their products are really great quality and such a pleasure to use. I'm surprised that you haven't tried any of the lipsticks. I highly recommend trying them. Yes, the flat bullet is interesting, and the shape is perfect for swatching! Secret Agent and Thrill Seeker would be perfect shades for you, Allison.

    1. I like them a lot, and it is nice that they don't contain fragrance. Some of the fragrances that are put into lipsticks can be a bit drying on lips.
