Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection is making its debut today on my face. It’s super hot today, first real hot day we got in New York, so a bronze-y look seemed the order of business when I woke up this morning.
I feel Lorac is terribly overlooked sometimes because they seriously make some of the best eye shadows ever and have such great, inexpensive sets during seasonal releases. Their Summer 2012 Collection is sizzling and their new Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Set is a mere $39 taking care of lips, eyes, face, and accessorizes you with a nifty bag too.
Take a look!
This set includes:
- Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Bronzing Powder
- Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Eye Shadow Palette
- Lorac TANtalizer Lips With Beneifts Gloss in Raoul
- Canvas Makeup Bag
This a little different from Lorac since they favor releasing limited edition palettes for their seasonal launches. Granted, they always have some sort of set that pops up but nothing like this in the past. Both the shadow and bronzing powder come in a flip top, cardboard compact with a full size mirror inside. This packaging is slim and easy to store but won’t travel well since it might open during transport so be aware if you do tuck it into your bag to wrap a rubberband around it to keep it securely closed. I find the palettes very cute and practical as well since the shadows have larger wells and are easy to get at with a brush.
Lorac’s eye shadow formula is typically silky with a thinner consistency however, lately they have been favoring a Stila style formula which I quite like. This formula is buttery, with a velvety texture with excellent color pay off but sans the frost you’d get with a Stila eys shadow.
I think the shades can be mistaken for ones you’d find in Lorac’s Unzipped Palette and yes, on some levels, they are similiar but I find they head off into a more bronze-y, warmer realm. I only used Fierce in my look below because I find contrasting with such similiar shades a little difficult. Fierce is the lightest shade where as the others are all chocolate browns and end up looking very similiar to the other when blended together. So I do think these work best with Fierce and one other shade OR using each shade in four separate looks alone but not together. Needless to say they blend like butter and have a smooth, even glide across lids.
The bronzing powder has the same soft, velvety feel as the shadows but with a thinner consistency. This is a very luxurious formula with a soft texture that blends easily on cheeks and face. It has a golden over spray that quickly disappears after a few strokes of a brush but no worries the powder underneath still yields a gorgeous golden bronze on cheeks with a metallic-like finish. The metallic finish is a little too much for my heavy handed application as you can see in my photos. I’m just a goof with bronzer application sadly but it does impart such a lovely golden bronze that’s completely wearable. I didn’t get a muddy or too orange-y finish from this at all.
Lorac also includes an exclusive shade of Lips With Beneifts Gloss in Raoul. I didn’t like the original Lips with Benefits formula because they were too nude for me but I am enjoying the TANilizer shades. Raoul is exclusive to this kit and is a peachy nude shade with a swirl of bronze.
I mentioned this before but I absolutely love the makeup bag they included. I typically toss bags like this into a big drawer I have which pretty much is the graveyard for makeup bags from sets I purchase. But I’ve been making use of this. It’s cute for tucking cash, keys, and essentials in and has a wooden bamboo wristlet that allows you to tote it around easily.
This set is a mere $39 which works out to less than $10 per item in the set. It’s a deal in my opinion.
Overall, makeup sets come and go through my beauty life and some are hits where as others are misses but no doubt that Lorac is a hit. This contains quality products at a very affordable price and allows for an easy Summer look in minutes.
