I wore a grey dress to the wedding I mentioned in my last post, and wanted to use red lips as a statement piece. It was pretty late at night when I came up with the idea, and it happens that I was going to Kohl's. My only reasonable choice was Lorac Alter Ego Lipsticks in Pin Up.
It was nice to shop cluelessly for beauty again, you know the ones we did before beauty blogs and youtubers. Anyways, once I got home, I checked the reviews online to find out that people complained about how dry the formula was. So I was pretty afraid I may have to return the product.
But surprisingly, Lorac Alter Ego lipstick in Pin Up was pretty good. It felt bit dry on the lips, but not anymore than any other lip product that lasts for a while. It was still there after drinks and o'devours, but definitely gone after salad.
The verdict is, I absolutely love the color. It is true red that is plain and classic. The formula is creamy to application and slightly dry on lips. The price point is appealing $16. Would I recommend it? If you know any lipstick that stays after a meal, then go for that. If you don't mind reapplication after a meal, then Lorac Alter Ego lipsticks are affordable option. By the way, if you want to see the color on, then stay tuned for my outfit post for the wedding.
