LORAC's Couture Shine: Liquid Lipstick for the Gloss Girl

LORAC's Couture Shine lip gloss
As much as I might love trying out and writing about new lipsticks, at heart I am a gloss girl. If you put 15 different lippies in front of me, about 90% of the time I will just reach for the gloss, ignoring the lipstick. Which is usually pretty sheer, which is a look I do like, but sometimes the pale girl in me needs a bit more color.

Enter this new gloss from LORAC. Described by LORAC as a "Sheer to Pigmented Finish", the color I tried is definitely pigmented, and when I apply it the color is definitely pigmented, though still has a bit of translucency, which makes it blend better with my skin, somehow looking just amazing!

The color I have is called Elite, which is pretty much perfect for me. I have my eye on Haute and Glam, both of which also have a bit of shimmer.

The formula feels hydrating and it lasts for a few hours, despite drinking coffee and talking. I also love that the formula includes "a natural anti-oxidant Oriza Sativa Bran Extract". Anytime you can fight aging, I'm happy!

  1. Yeah, I rarely wear lipstick myself. I don't know why, but I feel kind of false in it. This looks like a good product to try.
    The fact that it lasts is always a plus.

  2. thanks for keeping me up-to-date with all the latest trends!

  3. Reminds me of Benefit VIP gloss. I love the shine and pigment of that gloss! This one sounds like a great one to try!

  4. oh my goodness, for a second i thought i was seeing some thing out of a biology textbook! may i suggest some brushing it on there to make it look like a makeup swab! :) otherwise it looks v. strange...just a thought.
