LORAC Unzipped for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

LORAC Unzipped

New for spring 2012 from LORAC is the Unzipped collection.

This collection features luminizers, bronzers, an eyeshadow palette, lip glosses and a baked powder. I’ve got a few of the items for ya to check out.

TANtilizer Highlighter & Matte Bronzer Duo

This compact features a light shimmery pale peach highlighter shade on one side, and a medium/deep bronzer on the other. It’s great for those who like to contour and highlight.

I found that the highlight was super light on me, it barely shows up. The bronzer, which is pretty pigmented, is probably too deep for fair ladies such as myself, but would work for those with darker skin tones.

Lips With Benefits Lip Glosses are a new item and come in six different shades. And did you see how cool they look? They have swirls of other colors running through them. I really hated to dip inside and ruin the effect!

They’re paraben-free and have Acai Berry, Pomegranate Extract and Vitamins C & E for moisture. They’re not sticky, but provide a nice thick-ish coverage. They all smell lightly like caramel, but really not much of a taste. I am in love with the pigmentation, moisturization and longevity these give! I’ve worn two of them so far and they last on average about 4 hours before I need a touch-up. I can wear them comfortably for 8-10 hours and not feel a drying sensation at all.

The one negative you will see is they do settle a little bit into lip lines, but not too bad.

Josh is a medium ballet pink.

Ben is a light shimmery peach.

Mark is a deeper, warmer peach.

For me the bronzer just wasn’t working, BUT I adore these lip glosses!

      Hi Phyrra,

      Mark is gorgeous, especially in person. :)

    I love Lorac. Ben looks like a beautiful neutral. I wish Lorac would come out with more color though. Sometimes it just looks like all their collections are looking the same? Like a revamped version of the same color. These colors suit you though. Beautiful.

    Hmmm I like Ben and Mark, but Lorac is apparently impossible to find in Europe!

    Oh I like Josh. I haven’t bought Lorac in such a long time but this is changing my mind.

    I adore the glosses too. They look good on you – all of them. I have the Tantalizer self tanner lotion. Haven’t tried it yet, but we’ll see.

  • February 10, 2012

    I need all of those glosses!

    I agree with you about the bronzer/highlighter duo. That bronzer is just too dark. The glosses look wonderful. I won’t be purchasing any. I have tons of glosses that I don’t even wear.

    Interesting that the bronzer had a too light highlight and an almost too dark bronzer – weird!! The gloss shades are lovely though :)
