Lorac Sweet Temptations Lip Gloss Collection Review & Swatches
Lorac Sweet Temptations Lip Gloss Collection is a selection of six generously sized lipglosses all packaged together at a sweet price that Lorac introduced for Holiday 2012.
Fact, Lorac creates some of the best lip gloss sets around the Holidays and I absolutely always recommend picking them up!
Take a look!
At $25 (without a raise in price for the past three or four years!) this is one of the nicer gloss gift sets you’ll run across this Holiday Season. Packaged in a beautiful brown box that resembles a chocolate box of sorts with diamond bedecked toppers this set includes six shades of mouthwatering Lorac Lipgloss inspired by Holiday treats.
Pumpkin Spice, Butterscotch, Creme Brulee, Cotton Candy, Frosted Cupcake, and Candy Apple
Pumpkin Spice, Butterscotch, Creme Brulee
Cotton Candy, Frosted Gumdrop, Candy Apple
The formula of each gloss is infused with antioxidants like acai berry, pomegranate, grape seed, and vitamins C and E to help nourish and protect your lips. Glosses are 0.11 in size so quite a generous size per gloss here. The set includes a range of nude pinks, peaches, and a few popping shades like a candy apple red and a bright sparkling pink.
There is some disappointment here as some of the shades apply and look very similiar on lips. I ran into issues with the nuder shades of peach and pinks looking very similiar (this is why I only did a few lip swatches below) however, with a little stain under them you can definitely add a bit of pop. The most opaque shade is Candy Apple which is a rich, warm Holiday red. This produces full color coverage where as the other shades have a hint of tint to them.
The formula is a little grainy due to the glitter in the mix which results in less than smooth application. This is why I’m grateful for the brush applicators each gloss has. You’re able to swipe that brush across lips a few times to get the smoothest layer of gloss and color where as a sponge might produce some patchiness. The texture of the gloss is comfortable without being sticky however, it does have a little tack which allows it to wear quite long.
Now for the fun part…!
Each gloss is named after a decadent holiday treat and…drum roll…they each taste like one too! Candy Apple, Cotton Candy, Butterscotch, etc…each gloss has a unique flavor and scent. Cool right?
- Candy Apple (warm red)
- Frosted Gumdrop (bright pink)
- Sugar Plum (berry)
- Cotton Candy (medium pink)
- Butterscotch (pale peach)
- Crème Brulée (light pink)
Overall, this year’s Lorac Holiday Lip Gloss Set has a few quirks but in the long run it’s one of the best gloss sets you can haul. Plenty of bang for your buck here with a nice selection of shades to choose from. It makes an excellent gift as well!
Available now at Sephora and Ulta.
