Lorac Tie Dye For Lip Gloss Collection Review, Swatches, Photos

Get it?  Tie Dye For? Ha! See? I’m not so slow after all. Granted, I didn’t get the Hide and Go Cheek reference from Hard Candy but I totally get the to Tie Dye For one!

In all seriousness this is probably my favorite gloss set of the season. Purchasing gloss sets during the Holidays is a hit or miss situation. It’s hard to say which will be winners and which will be mediocre purchases that saved you money but don’t have an incredible formula to back them up.

The Lorac Tie Dye For Lip Gloss Gift Set gets you five generous lipglosses, with a fab formula, plus it’ll only set you back $25 bucks. Formula, quantity, and inexpensive? Check, Check, Check!


Five “tie dyed” lipglosses from Lorac in a gift set ready for giving!

You gotta admit some gloss sets definitely forsake size and quality to give you the gift of many. I mean Holiday sets are all well and good but sometimes the size of the glosses are super tiny where as other times the gloss formula runs a bit shabby. Lorac has both a great quality and a nice size to back it up. This is one of my favorite gloss sets this Holiday Season!

These are 0.11 compared to a normal size Lorac Gloss at 0.17. So really it’s a nice substantial size in my humblest.

The novelty? The tie dye formula of course. It doesn’t really speak Christmas to me but I absolutely love the design. The glosses are made up of this groovy tie dye design which features three or four different gloss shades in one tube. For the most part the gloss is one single color but it’s still really a funky effect in the tube.

They are a full color gloss as well so you aren’t investing in an opaque, sheer, subtle gloss here. You’re getting great pigmentation and color pay off in each and every gloss. The formula runs towards being thicker and has a nice creamy finish. It’s not necessarily a glossy gloss but it has a nice shine and a hydrating feel. It wears comfortable to me without being too tacky or sticky and has a few hours of wear time prior to needing a touch up. The applicator is a smaller brush which is fabulous in my opinion since it allows you to really layer it on as sponge applicators simply won’t cut it for such a brilliant gloss formula and would ruin the effects so I’m all in favor of this style applicator.

They did take the time out, thank god, to name each gloss individually. It’s a total pet peeve of mine getting a gloss set and proceeding to have to point it out to someone as “that pink gloss from so and so brand…” I’d like to be able to have a name for it.

The glosses include In the Mix (Nude, Orange, Beige Combo which comes across as a nude peach on lips), Flaming Mix (Orange, Red, Raspberry, and Peach Combo which comes across as a burnt candy apple red on lips), Shocking Twist (Fuchsia, Pale Pink, Raspberry Combo which comes across as raspberry fuchsia on lips), Berry Blender (Berry, Purple, Cream, Plum Combo which comes across as a bitten blackberry shade on lips), and Social Mixer (Berry Pink, Pale Pink, and Iridescent Pearl Combo which comes across a rosy pink on lips).

I honestly have nothing to say bad here. Love these!

  • Anyone wanting an inexpensive lipgloss set that has a nice variety of shades, nicely sized glosses, and a nice formula to back it up!
  • Anyone who wants more for less (this is $25 bucks broken down that’s $5 a gloss).

  • Those seeking a glossy gloss and not a full color gloss (this comes across as a full color gloss so if you’re wanting something sheer and natural this isn’t it).

Lorac again, like always lately, gets this lipgloss set RIGHT. It’s one of the best ones I’ve tried so far in terms of gloss sets for the Holidays and has a great offering of product. I really loved the formula, loved the design of the glosses, loved the $25 price tag, and just overall, enjoyed the glosses.

I think it’s worth a haul and it deserves a Muse Approval of purchase!

Loves it!

Did you haul it?

      my pleasure jas ;-D


  • 11/4/10 2:47 Bethy:

    I hauled these awhile back and I LOVE them! I’m with you, there’s no bad to these glosses. Every color works for me, even the nude which I was thinking might be to light. I’ve never bought back-ups of glosses because with the basket of lip products I have, let’s face it, it’s highly unlikely I’ll ever run out of any one tube. However, I am extremely leaning towards buying another set just in case or to gift individually or whatever! Five dollars for a high-quality LE v. pigmented gloss is a total steal.


    • 11/4/10 9:43 the Muse:

      totally agreed bethy ;-D also you can get a back up set at 20% off at beauty.com this week if you’re really lemming ;D!


      • 11/9/10 21:39 Kellie:

        how do you get the 20% off???


        • 11/9/10 21:46 the Muse:

          during the sephora friends and family event kellie everything was 20% off I posted about it with the coupon code a week or two ago, it’s sadly over now.


  • 11/4/10 4:47 Mara:

    I just got this set via the Sephora Friends and Family at the last minute (score!). It’s my first Lorac purchase ever and judging by your review and others I’ve seen online, it was a great buy and the first of many of this brand for me.


    • 11/4/10 10:41 the Muse:

      Mara super buy! go hauling chica ;-D Lorac has some fun offerings!


  • 11/4/10 8:28 Jen:

    • 11/4/10 10:58 the Muse:

      me too katy but they don’t! :(


  • 11/4/10 12:22 Kelly M.:

    Hi Muse!

    Are they similar to Nars iip glosses? Nars gloses usually have good color pay off. I never tried Lorac before. You’re musing me into getting these =) ha ha!



    • 11/4/10 12:28 the Muse:

      hi kelly no hun. Nars tends to come across a bit different texture wise. These are creamier and considerably much pigmented than a NARS one. The formulas are vastly different. ;-D hope this helps!


  • 11/4/10 12:54 telle:

    i *love* these- thanks for doing the review! 😀 I havent used them yet because I am just enjoying their tie-dye awesomeness for a while! :)


    • 11/4/10 13:01 the Muse:

      ha telle ;-D can relate, can relate ;D


  • 11/4/10 15:54 Miss D:

    Wow, I knew these would be gorgeous. Now I know what my next purchase from Sephora will be. :)


  • 11/4/10 19:41 Robin:

    *Adds to wish list* :)


  • 11/4/10 21:24 kali:

    I just got this too and love it! I had a hard time finding anything bad about them too!


    • 11/5/10 13:40 the Muse:

      kali had to dig hard for anything bad ;-D they are too good!


  • 11/19/10 11:35 Ru:

    Did you have a problem with these settling into your liplines? I tried on that nude shade at the store, LOVED it, but within an hour when I came back it was in my lip lines!


    • 11/19/10 12:15 the Muse:

      no ru no problems here hun. they didn’t migrate either. maybe a primer prior!?


  • 5/3/11 11:07 Majick:

    I bought these during the holidays and they are fantastic. I think the colors work on everyone because of the unique mix in the tubes. I haven’t used them recently because I’m all hung up on the BITE products (saffron – thanks Muse) right now. BUT – I don’t remember them migrating into my lip lines. I’m a big fan of LORAC products in general but these were an even bigger pleasant surprise.
    I have to be careful I don’t cave and buy another set. I have WAY to much stuff.
    I’m proud of you Muse that you finished a lip gloss to empty. WOO HOO!


    • 5/4/11 9:51 the Muse:

      lol majick thank ya thank you very much *bows*
