Lorac Silver Screen Full Face Collection Palette Review and Swatches

The Muse is ever so guilty of sometimes passing by great palettes and never realizing their potential. That would be the case with the new Lorac Silver Screen Full Face Collection Palette.

Oh my gosh, how did I miss this one? It’s available exclusively at Ulta and it’s $30 bucks and probably some of the best money you’ll spend on such a nice palette this season. Really liking the elegant looks you can create with.

Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush Review and Swatches

When I originally discussed Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush with you I was in high debate if I wanted to indulge. The “matte” part really threw a Muse off. Am I the only one that finds the idea of a matte blush terribly unappealing? I was just thinking matte eyeshadow such a difficult blending process, imagine blush? How would that work?


Jump ahead to find out if matte works in a blush!

Turns out my fears of a matte blush are unfounded by the fact that Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush is more of a satiny finish with a sheer layer of sparkle. Quite gorgeous to say the least. So far I’ve only picked up one shade in this blush and I couldn’t be happier that I indulged. The formula is silky smooth with a nice satin finish and the barest hint of shimmer. For a baked product you’ll get nice color pay off which is sometimes not always the case with baked shadows or blushes. I was quite impressed with the natural, fresh glow that blush gave me cheeks. I picked this up at Sephora in the shade Exposed which has hints of both peach and pink. It reminds me a bit of a watermelon candy for some reason or another.


I didn’t peek at the Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow because I was in a rush but I’m now wanting to go back and have a look, see at those plus pick up the other shades in this blush. The shade is truly unique with a very nice finish. I’m Muse Approving it for purchase! Quite a pretty blush for Summer wear!

Lorac Summer Collection 2009: Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow and Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush

Lorac

Lorac The Muse sometimes doesn’t give you enough tender, loving, care. Please don’t take offense, I do so adore you but sometimes you get pushed to the back corner but have no fear you have my utmost attention this Summer with all your delightful baked goodies.

Lorac introduces two brand new baked goodies with it’s Summer Collection. Introducing Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow and Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush, I know, I know matte! Try not to panic! I promise we are all going to be ok.

Matte scares a Muse and probably scares about 99% of you as well. But I must say that both the Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow and Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush look utterly dreamy and possibly easy to blend especially since they are baked which makes them extra silky smooth plus “satin” is in the name!

I’m partial to the Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush available in three shades for $24 USD each…I could cope with gathering up all three for my very own!

lorac+2

Shades available:
  • Exposed (Peachy Pink)
  • Hollywood (Bronzed Rose)
  • Velvet Rose (Plum Rose)

It’s probably safe to say Lorac could probably talk me into purchasing two or three of it’s brand new Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadows as well available in 5 shades for $22 USD each.

lorac+4

Shades available:
  • Chic (White)
  • Drama (Charcoal)
  • Insider (Deep Blue)
  • Posh (Nude)
  • Social (Brown)

Well, hello there Posh and Social! The Muse happens to be both very posh and very social (at least she likes to think she is) so you’re perfect for her.

All in all I think I like the looks of these even though “matte” is thrown around. They look quite silky and very pigmented! The Muse must get to Sephora and pick up a few for review. Keep it tuned here for the good word. It’s ok to admit that matte is where it’s at sometimes.

Lorac Visual Effects Mascara Review

I love Lorac Visual Effects Mascara.

Bestest mascara evers people!

You must go out and grab yourself one immediately!

I blogged this way back when but I never got the chance to snatch up one for myself and plenty of time passed before I actually decided to add it into my cart for purchase! I must be mad to have waited so long to grab it because it’s seriously awesome.

Allow me to mention that Chanel Exceptionnel Mascara is sincerely awesome but the price tag is in the high end range of $28 USD. I don’t mind the price in all honesty as the product is sincerely solid and high quality however if you’re not feeling that price you can go grab yourself a $19.50 USD tube of Lorac Visual Effects Mascara and call it a day because honestly it works pretty much in the same way as Chanel Exceptionnel!

It deserves to be mentioned that the applicators are vastly different on the two mascaras however I discovered while testing both that I got pretty much the same finish to my lashes with both (and might have even liked Lorac’s version a little bit more!).

Lorac’s promise of longer, fuller lashes comes through big time with the intense applicator and great mascara formula. It curls, separates, and lengthens my lashes to extreme heights which makes Lorac Visual Effects Mascara a possibly new Holy Grail mascara for the Muse!

The applicator works as a brush and a comb by pulling upwards, outwards, and combing through for extra lenght and volume. The brush is a oddly shaped barrel design that with first use will create a rather big smudgy mess but after a little bit of a learning curve you’ll be quickly on your way to longer lashes!

I liked the false-like look this created to my lashes and how much lenght I was able to achieve with two applications or even one for that matter! One minor rant is the fact that I get small smudges on the top of my upper eye due to how long my lashes are now. So when I first apply I have to be careful not to blink until the mascara dries otherwise I end up with little tiny dots of mascara on my highbrow area. The formula is ultra black and very thick so if you’re not a lover of thicker formulas you may want to avoid this.

I was SHOCKED to hear the poor reviews of this on Makeup Alley! I personally loved it and definately recommend trying it out. I am slightly worried about the effects it would have on those with shorter lashes as I do see that this may create a bit of a mess however those with naturally fuller, longer lashes it should be ideal to create great volume and curl!

I honestly loved this one and give it a big hearty approval for purchase!

All in all I’d say it does exactly what it promises however it does take one or two applications to learn how to use it correctly to get the best results!

This one I’m loving!

Tried it already?

Like it?

Love it?
