LORAC is a tried and true favorite in the world of cosmetics brands; they always seem to come up with the best launches. Not surprisingly, their newest launch has me completely addicted: The Alter Ego Lipstick! The combination of richly-pigmented colors (awesome colors, might I add) and the unique finish make this my hero lipstick of the season.

The finish on the LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick isn’t quite matte and it isn’t quite satin; it’s got a creamy texture but the fact that these colors have so much pigment to them gives them a one-of-a-kind finish that’s to die for. It’s pretty much impossible to choose favorites with these shades, too! I’ve narrowed it down to Seductress, a vibrant but wearable pink/red, and Dominatrix, a deepest deep plum.

Rather than swatch these shades, I decided my readers needed to see the full effect of these luscious lipsticks! From top to bottom we’ve got Centerfold, Dominatrix, Girl Next Door, Seductress, Jet Setter, Showgirl, and Vixen. You can see the entire collection of colors here, and don’t forget to leave a comment letting me know which color is your favorite!

I think seductress is my favorite… but they’re all gorgeous and Dominatrix is crazy complementary to your beautiful brown eyes! It makes them pop.

These all look so amazing on you! They really compliment your skin tone. I need to head to the beach and work on my tan after seeing this post. I also love the idea of a satiny matte finish, because I’ve never gotten quite along with matte, so this may be the perfect compromise.

Hi Teni!

I have seen in alot of your videos that you use the Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Dark Brown but I am trying to buy it and they only have 3 shades: Blonde, soft brunette and dark brunette so thats why i wanted to ask you if dark brunette and dark brown are the same color??
Thank you!!

Is there a drug store dupe to dominatrix!?

Tamara Ludwigs 10/02/2014 at 8:13 pm

I just bought the Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick in Dominatrix because I have been looking for a fall plum lipstick and I absolutely loved it on you! I have a question though when I applied this lipstick it was almost blothcy-like and if i patted my lips together or rubbed my lips together to try and get an all over smoother and even look it would come off or be darker in certain sections than others. I tried then applying more to see if that would help but it only made it worse. I’ve never had this happen with a lipstick before and i didn’t have chapstick on or anything on my lips that would make it greasy or not stick to my lip. My lips are not chapped either, I use a lip exfoliater once in awhile and my lips were smooth so i’m not sure why it didn’t go on evenly. I was wondering how you applied it so evenly with a flawless look? Did you use a lip liner or did you apply it with a brush? Just curious and I would very much appreciate any advice or help you have to give, Thank you!

Lucretia 12/23/2014 at 11:54 pm

I prefered your two choices too, Dominatrix & Seductress, but my question would be …and please, please reply, as I would like to try too ASAP … what is the face make-up you used? And I mean the most the blush or product and color you used for your cheekbone? I would appreciate so much!! Million thanks already …and HO-HO-HO, Merry Christmas!!! <3

Lucretia 12/23/2014 at 11:57 pm

Sorry, I forgot to mention I loved the most your cheekbone color for Centrefold lip color, and I’d be interested in that specific color you in that picture and look. Thank you!

NBA 06/01/2016 at 5:12 am

You have got impressive stuff in this case

Johnny Pillbox 10/14/2017 at 10:47 pm

Fucking hell you are so boring to look at. You’re not even ugly. Just outstandingly boring. And you look like a clown that’s put makeup on whilst pissed.
