Lorac Luxe Lip Color Review & Swatches

Lorac Luxe Lip Color lipstick

Lorac Lip Luxe Lip Color is a brand new paraben-free lipstick launching with the Lorac Spring 2014 Collection that promises eight long hours of wear with a highly pigmented formula.

Available in six shades Lorac Lip Luxe Lip Color has promises a matte finish that doesn’t bleed of feather! Sounds like a treat to me….

Shall we take a look?

Lorac Luxe Lip Color

Lorac Lup Luxe Lip Color ($16) has a creamy semi-matte formula that wears and wears and wears and wears…it doesn’t quit. Even when it fades away it stains lips a brilliant hue and that lasts and lasts and lasts.

If you need strong, long wear to get you through the zombie plague or a week long session of WoW well this is the lipstick formula for you. Housed in a super slim, super slick mirrored case these small lippies weight in at 0.05 oz in size.

Although Lorac markets them as a matte formula I felt they were semi-matte in finish as they have a hint of sheen to them as well as a balm-y texture which is way more comfortable and weightless than a more traditional velvet matte lipstick. The pigmentation is astounding on these with full opaque coverage on a single pass. The colors are vibrant, rich, and very beautiful from what I’ve tested out thus far. The formula is light with a barely there finish on my lips. And the wear? Truly they can get you through an 8 hour work day without a touch up! Color stays where you put it and without eating or drinking these will last and last and last…even after they wear away you’ll notice they stain lips rather brilliantly and that stain will last for a good two hours after.

And through it all you’ll find the formula doesn’t go dry, doesn’t migrate or feather, and looks as intense as the first time you applied it.

Lorac Lip Luxe Lipstick is a winner ladies and lads. This one should be added onto your must have Spring list.

My only issue?

I’d love a bigger shade selection!

Aside from that sheer perfection.

Muse Approved.

    Wow Muse, the Orchid Lippie looks gorgeous on you! I want to rock that color – hopefully my Kohl’s has these (got a gift card for Christmas). :)


    • 1/16/14 9:38 Isabella Muse:

      aw thanks Michelle, it kinda scared me a little I typically avoid purple 😀 I’m sure they’ll be launching shortly at kohls if they aren’t already available! Ulta.com has them in stock as well already!


  • 1/15/14 20:05 don pon:

    Orchid looks great on you! :)


    • 1/16/14 9:37 Isabella Muse:

      thanks dear :) I was a little scared of it!


  • 1/15/14 20:44 heather:

    i LOVE skinny lipsticks & semi-matte finishes! i’m liking how this orchid doesn’t have all the sparkle of that newly launched too faced la creme purple lippie which i had my eye on.


    • 1/30/14 12:01 Carla N.:

      Okay, so I’m doomed. Whatever.
      The first month of 2014 is not even quite over, and already I have my eye on the following orchid-purple lipsticks: Stila “Gemma,” Too Faced “Lollipop,” and now Lorac “Orchid.”
      That wouldn’t be so bad, except that 1)I own 100 + lipsticks of various colors, 2) I have MAC Violetta, MAC Lavender Whip, MAC Rebel, and Lime Crime Poisonberry, 3) I don’t wear purple lipstick every day of my life, and 4) I’m not confident that I could get out of my house, in case of fire, because it would take too long to gather up my makeup collection before I passed out.
      Oh, well. We all have to go sometime!


      • 1/30/14 16:04 Isabella Muse:

        but what’s one more!? ;-D


        • 1/30/14 16:30 Carla N.:

          It’s the “What’s one more?” line of reasoning that got me 100+ lipsticks.
          And only one pair of lips! :O

    Ahh! Looks great and lovely! Too bad I don’t know where I can get Lorac stuff in Canada.


  • 1/15/14 21:23 Robin:

    This may push me off the no buy wagon! Can you describe the Scarlett color? I thought It would be more red, but it looks coral. Orchid will be mine. Are theses limited edition?


    • 1/16/14 9:37 Isabella Muse:

      it’s actually not red at all it’s kinda a neon tomato red with a strong coral undertone. they are not, they’ll be part of the perm co,collection!


  • 1/16/14 5:17 Angel:

    Needs it!! Wow, so happy to hear these wear so well. And Paraben free!? Woo hoo!! I’m agree Muse, now I want these and hope they make more colors. That top violet color looks great on you!


    • 1/16/14 9:36 Isabella Muse:

      they wear incredibly long angel! aw thanks girl! Let me know if you try curious on your thoughts!


  • 1/16/14 17:03 Kristanna:

    Scarlet! Oh MYYYYY what a fantastic color on!


    • 1/17/14 9:25 Isabella Muse:

      it’s BRIGHT 😀


      • 1/30/14 16:33 Carla N.:

        BRIGHT is exactly what I crave!
        How can I possibly resist a bright orchid lipstick in a year when The Color is Radiant Orchid.
        Obviously, I can’t, and I don’t particularly want to … :/


        • 1/31/14 9:41 Isabella Muse:

          lol carla ;-D I hear ya! bold is nice!


  • 1/16/14 18:27 Deb:

    Wow Muse, Orchid looks amazing on you! I envy you; I love the color but just can’t wear it. It makes me look like death warmed over.


    • 1/17/14 9:22 Isabella Muse:

      thanks deb I’m a little unsure with it :)


  • 1/17/14 6:57 Melody:

    I agree here, Muse, Orchid looks lush lip on your skintone here! Don’t be afraid of that one, suga, it’s fablicious on you! Seriously! :) I’m really excited for these I adore long long forever lasting lippies that don’t dry out YOUR lips in winter?! Sign me up perfect! I’ll take them all! 😉


    • 1/17/14 6:59 Melody:

      aw thanks chica :) <3! you should def try! good stuff!


  • 10/16/14 9:26 Danadoo:

    I just bought orchid based on your review and i love it!! It truly feels barely there, which is something i just love..ive got a huge stash of lipstick that i rarely wear because of a thick greasy texture that has to be reapplied a million times a day. I also love that this stains my lips after the initial color wears off. I think this lippie is going to be worth every dollar. Im hoping they launch more colors, orchid is really the only one that interests me and i look terrible in super bright colors. I will be buying a backup!


    • 10/16/14 9:29 Isabella Muse:

      yay happy to hear it dana :)
