With the lipstick, that’s normally $16 itself, this turns up as a great value! It’s almost like you’re paying merely $14 for the blush palettew which I think we can all agree is a very nice deal.
Let’s take a look at the Lorac Unzipped Cheek Palette and see what the good word is!
I remember the Pop Rose Belle Blush being one of my very favorite blush palettes and the Lorac Unzipped Palette reminds me so much of it! The design is very similar (although Pop’s palette had eight shades of blush and not four)!
This is a sturdy cardboard flip open palette with a full size mirror that contains four shades of blush that range in color from pinks to peaches! It’s a nice assortment of blushes with an excellent formula and beautiful pigmentation!
The blush shades included Underrated which is a medium a pink with soft matte finish, Unashamed which is a bright shade of cooler pink that also has a matte finish, Unapologetic which is a dusky bronzer rose with a matte finish, and Unimaginable which is a light peach with a luminous glow-y finish.
All the shades had excellent pigmentation and a long wear of eight hours on my drier skin. They apply and blend flawlessly into skin but three out of the four shades are quite pigmented so do use a lighter hand during application! I was a little worried about the majority of matte finishes here but I didn’t experience any dryness or density from the colors and they all applied easily and blended out flawlessly! I was very impressed with the wear as from morning until well into the evening the shades remained true and didn’t fade in intensity. It was almost as if I had just applied them coming out of an eight out of wear, they remained that intense and strong on.

The Alter Ego Lipstick included with the set is the Girl Next Door which is a permanent shade so if you love the color it’s easy enough to replenish it. This is matte finish cool toned pink with a very opaque finish. The Alter Ego formula is very thick, very matte, and quite creamy with a vanilla fragrance and flavor. You can read more about my thoughts on the formula by seeing my Alter Ego Review where I’ve swatched other shades and discuss the formula more in detail!
