Lorac Beauty and the Beast Lipstick Collection Review & Swatches

The new, limited edition Lorac Beauty and the Beast Lipstick Collection ($36) includes five Lorac Mod Cream Lipstick shades inspired by the Beauty and the Beast film. This is probably my second favorite set in this collection, the Cheek Palette being the first, as all of these shades were quite flattering on me not to mention it’s such an excellent value since it included five full-size lipsticks.

Let’s tale a look!

After purchasing the Lorac Beauty and the Beast Lipstick Collection from the brand’s website I ended up purchasing another set when it launched at Ulta as soon of these shades are too good not to own backups of. It’s a rarity I run across a lipstick or lipgloss set that contains all shades I love.

This set comes housed in a gold metallic box. The lipstick barrels are gold with clear casing that has a rose vine design embedded on the front that swirls down to the bottom of the tube. Lorac and Beauty and the Beast’s emblem is located on the inner barrel of the lipstick. It’s a very pretty presentation. Each lipstick is 0.11 oz in size each with a total of 0.55 oz of lipstick in the entire set.

These are the same Mod Cream formula that was presented in the Lorac Pirates of the Caribbean Mod Lip Cream Duo that launched a few weeks ago but I found the formula much, much nicer and less dense, drier in comparison to the Pirate release. They are not matte nor as dense as Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick either.

Lorac Beauty and the Beast Lipstick Collection Swatches (Belle-ieve, Red Rose, Savoir Faire, Tres Chic, True Beauty)

I really enjoyed this formula. It’s light, creamy, has a slight shine and wore for around four to five hours depending on the shades. It applied very easily on my drier lips with a smooth, even finish and excellent full coverage that was pigmented on a single layer. There is a faint, subtle vanilla flavor and fragrance as well which I found pleasant enough.

Shades include:

  • True Beauty (pale mauve)
  • Red Rose (petal red)
  • Belle-ieve (nude)
  • Tres Chic (beige)
  • Savior Faire (nude peachy rose)

I was delighted with these shades. Almost all of them worked really well with my skin tone and there’s quite a nice variety of wearable nudes as well as stronger pops of color like a gorgeous rose red.

All in all the Lorac Beauty and the Beast Lipstick Collection is well worth indulging in. The price is right, the formula is a joy to use, and the colors are gorgeous. And don’t forget about the gorgeous packaging.

Love!

    Did you see Lipstick Queen has a few lippies on sale, on their site? I’ve never ordered from her site directly but I’m tempted.

    • Isabella Muse

      I didn’t but now I’m headed over to see 😀 thanks!!!!!!!

  • kjh

    Seriously, they really did make this one just for you. Girly, with all flattering colors? Who immediately springs to mind? Aaand, they coordinate well with the blushes. The eye palette is usually the centerpiece of any of these themed collections, but I’d say it’s a tad weaker than the blush/lips pieces in this case.

  • Adrienne

    Thanks Muse. There are 2 colors in that collection I wanted so my Ulta said online only and I headed over to Kohl’s because you have mentioned them a few times with Lorac releases. Unfortunately she said they were not allowed to put them out yet. However, for anyone who is interested the Pirates collection is on sale there now.

    • Isabella Muse

      my pleasure, sorry it isn’t in stores yet! hopefully soon!

  • Alicia

    Thank you and you look beautiful in all colors! How do these compare to the glosses? My lips have always been very lined so I tend to avoid lipsticks-how do these do with lip lines? Or would you recommend the glosses more? Thank you!

    • Isabella Muse

      Can’t really compare a gloss formula and a lipstick one 🙂 It’s vastly different. The glosses are sheerer and not as pigmented as the lipstick. The lipsticks applied very smoothly and even on my dry lips! Hope this helps!?

    Awe, I really love the whole idea and the lovely packaging with this collection. I saw it in the store recently, but alas any nude or light lipstick shade unfortunately makes me look like an extra from TWD.

    I think the mauve and red shades look fabulous on you!

  • Sheree

    I don’t know, for some reason I just equate clear caps with cheap lipstick…

  • genevieve

    Very pretty shades and they all look lovely on you Muse. I think the lipsticks from this collection are really good.

  • tiffany

    they are oos at ulta and lorac- i hope i can find at kohls (i hesitated buying at ulta because i knew a gwp was coming and then it was gone that day)

  • Ami

    Curious question: Are the colored bottoms of those just helpful when choosing a lipstick color OR are they one of the brands that does hidden balms?

  • Jeanine

    You look great! We are the same skin tone so I hope they’ll look just as great on me.
