Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick Collection (Kohl’s Exclusive) Product Review

Before I get back to going through my endless amount of sub boxes, I wanted to post one more product review. This is about the new Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick Collection which is a Kohl’s exclusive. As soon as I saw this collection I was WOWED and I knew that I NEEDED to purchase it immediately. That’s exactly what I did! As soon as I saw the set make its way onto the floor I picked one up and told my Beauty Advisory that I would be purchasing it at the end of my shift!

1

The gold packaging on the lipstick is limited edition to this set only. This set is valued at $80 but is priced to sell for $35! Individually, these lipsticks cost $16 each.

2

From Left to Right – Duchess, Seductress, Vixen, Free Spirit, and CEO. They smell exactly like a Mac lipstick. It’s a very vanilla-y scent that I absolutely love.

3

These are matte finish lipsticks. Some say that they find them drying. I feel like they are comparable to the Mac lipsticks I own. They go on creamy and stay for probably three to four hours before a reapplication is needed. The only color I am not completely in love with is Free Spirirt (the purple) because I feel like it’s a color I can’t really pull off… Although I will still probably wear it!

This Saturday (March 7th) Kohl’s stores will be offering 10% off Prestige beauty items, this set will be included. So make sure you run to your closest Kohl’s to snatch up these beauties!

Kohl’s Beauty Haul

So I actually purchased these items like two-three weeks ago, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t posted this yet… And because I waited I lost my receipt 😦 So, prices won’t be exact. It’ll all have to be estimates. SO SORRY! Anyways, over labor day weekend, thanks to the lovely ladies in Julep Swap, I found out about an awesome deal through Essie! The deal was if you bought three Essie products, you were to take a photo of your receipt and send it in to receive a free top coat! So, here’s what I got:

Kohls3

I only paid $13 (and change) for all of this stuff!!!

1) Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – $6: This a beauty blender sponge to smooth lines of concealer and foundation. My sister has one and raved about hers, so I finally caved and got one!

3) Essie Sexy Divide (purple) nail polish – $8.50: Purple for my sister!
