Mother's Day is just around the corner. And what better way to celebrate Mom than with a killer make-up set from LORAC. The Mother's Day Collection contains several of their best-sellers and I'm in love. What a steal for $32!
• (NEW) Alter Ego Lipstick: This lipstick coats lips in highly-pigmented color with an opaque, matte finish. The ultra-rich formula contains anti-aging antioxidants such as Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed Extract, and Vitamins C and E.
• Cobra Mascara: Mesmerize and hypnotize with LORAC Cobra Mascara. Apply the curling, lengthening and volumizing formula with a custom Cobra head wand to create dramatic, build able volume and length for the longest, thickest, blackest smudge and flake proof lashes ever!
• Lip Lustre: Amp up your look with Lip Lustre Gloss. This glimmering, glam gloss is paraben-free, super hydrating and infused with antioxidants of Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed and Vitamins A, C & E.
• PRO Powder Cheek Stain: Get an instant flush of long-lasting, natural-looking color with this innovative, 12-hour-long-wear powder blush. This fragrance-free/paraben-free powder stain is easy-to-use and applies super smooth for color that lasts.
• Superstar Baked Eye Shadow Trio: Easily create Red Carpet smokey eyes with LORAC's color-coordinating shades of shimmering baked eye shadow trio. Baked on terra cotta to create a silky-smooth unique texture, the highly pigmented, long-lasting shades are designed to be applied either wet, for a more dramatic, smokey eye makeup look, or dry for a natural eye makeup look.
Lorac has just released their new lipglosses, Lips with Benefits, and it has rocketed right to my number one lipgloss for Spring '12. The first thing that caught my attention is the awesome swirled colors which mix together in the tube to create absolute lipgloss perfection (totally mesmerizing). I can't tell you how gorgeous these glosses look on - especially Nick (shimmery light pink) which is my favorite. They have a lovely shine and the perfect amount of shimmer. Aside from the beautiful colors and crazy-cool packaging, the formula is stunningly hydrating! Lips with Benefits are paraben-free and contain Acai Berry, Pomegranate Extract and Vitamin C & E which help to nourish and protect the lips. And if all this wasn't enough to convince you to give them a try - they smell like Creme Brulee! Love this line and can't wait to add some more to my collection. Chuck and Josh will definitely be mine this weekend - hmm, that sounds fantastically dirty when I see it typed out.

I am seriously coveting this palette! I saw Lorac Unzipped online and have been dreaming about owning it ever since (think a trip to Sephora is in order). I know, I know, I already have about a thousand different nude shadows, but this palette has so many gorgeous wearable shades and all in the same place. I get excited at the very throught of all the shading, blending and smokey eye-ing I can do with this bad boy. And bonus, it's only $40.00! I can think of a million worse ways to spend that money - like on oil changes or groceries...
I am getting so excited for the holidays I can't even stand it. The malls are decorated, Starbucks has their holiday-themed cups and lattes back and my neighbor who never takes down his Christmas lights is now appropriately back in season. All is glittery and festive without the snow. And the holiday collections are releasing so quickly I can hardly keep up. LORAC has the most brilliant limited edition Bejeweled Collection for this year. They have released the Exclusive Bejeweled Day and Night Jewelry Box for Sephora, which has a gorgeous makeup collection all housed in the glittery goodness of a keepsake jewelry box. This amazing box includes two eye liner pencils in dark brown and black, two high-shine lip glosses in Rose and Peach, Bronzer, a Face Palette for Day (which has 16 eye shadows plus blush) and a Face Palette for Night (again, 16 more eye shadows and another blush). You cannot beat the set for the price (only $56.00). The other item is a must-have stocking stuffer. LORAC's Bejeweled Lip Gloss Collection contains 6 stunning glosses all housed in a beautiful diamond-encrusted cap (fake diamonds, of course - what do you expect for such a brilliant price?!) The colors are all beautiful on and are so moisturizing you'll be shocked at how great they feel on. Definitely my new go-to glosses and such an awesome price ($25.00 for the set). Colors include Ruby Red, Peach Moonstone (my fave for the season as it's peachy-nude with sparkle - pairs gorgeous with smoky eyes), Hot Sapphire Pink, Rich Garnet (my second fave paired with nude shadow, black liner and black mascara), Pink Diamond and Bronze Topaz. You will want this set for your BFF and for yourself.

Oh, I so want this! LORAC's holiday lip glosses are always fabulous and this year's Bejeweled Lip Gloss Collection seems to be continuing the streak. I haven't seen them in person yet, but that red all the way to the left looks like it's going to be gorgeous, right? I'm so into a red lip lately and especially red glosses, so I think this set needs to come home with me. It's a great value, too. For only $25, you get six different glosses in these shades:
Red Ruby - Red
Peach Moonstone - Peach
Hot Pink Sapphire - Bright Pink
Rich Garnet - Dark Cherry
Pink Diamond - Opalescent Light Pink
Bronze Topaz - Bronze
Pink Diamond seems like it'll be a great layering shade, doesn't it? I can't wait to try all of them!
All you LORAC fans should be setting an alert on your calendar for this Friday, September 2nd. For that one day only, Hautelook.com will be offering two exclusive Haute Couture palettes that were created by LORAC founder and reknowned makeup artist, Carol Shaw. The one-of-a-kind palettes are available only this Friday during Hautelook's "Deal of the Day" event, which lasts for 24 hours.
The Haute Couture Palette in Avant Garde (pictured above) is made for creating Carol's signature smoky eye. Its four shades include a white shimmer, taupe shimmer, charcoal shimmer and plum shimmer, and it comes with a custom, double-edged brush in the palette.
The Haute Couture Palette in Sand Tropez (pictured above) is a neutral palette that can be used to get that "barely there" look that's perfect for daytime hours. Shades include a matte ivory, a gold shimmer, a bronze shimmer and a matte espresso brown, and it also includes a custom double-ended brush.
Each palette retails for just $14 (they have a value of $76 each). Set the reminder on your phones now!
Oh, this is so coming home with me this weekend. Part of LORAC's fall collection, Ooh La Lace is a new Sephora exclusive shadow palette that has six baked shadows in it, with both shimmer and matte shades. Here's the shades you'll find in the palette:
Lust - Cream with shimmer
Smolder - Matte gray
Risque - Matte black
Stunner - Light bronze with shimmer
Knockout - Bronze with shimmer
Racy - Matte brown
I love baked shadows and I've especially had good luck with LORAC's version of them in the past, so I'm excited to play around with this one. (I saw it in Sephora this weekend and was going to buy it, but the line was really long and I had to be somewhere, so I had to walk away from it. It was hard, people, I'm not gonna lie...) And how cute is the packaging? I love the lacy pattern on it. See you again on Saturday, Ooh La Lace!
If you're a fan of LORAC (and who isn't really?) this sale is definitely for you. Starting today at 8am PST and going until Wednesday, May 11th at 8am PST, Haute Look is having a blow out sale on the brand. Some of the items you'll be able to score include lip gloss collections, eye shadows, cream eye shadow liners, blushes... and that's just a few of the items that'll be for sale. (Products will start at just $1.99!) Just log on to hautelook.com to start shopping. Happy hauling!
I really want this new Time to Shine Palette from LORAC. It's available exclusively at ULTA, where I was browsing this weekend, so I almost bought it, but then I remembered that I had a 20% off my entire purchase coupon for ULTA, which would've been great, but it doesn't actually start until April 2nd. So I was forced to put this delightful palette back and cross my fingers that they still have some left in a few days (which seems dicey - there were only a couple more on the display). It's $28, which I kind of can't justify, but with the coupon, it'll only be $22.40, which somehow seems much more affordable. (You know, if you take out the fact that while I'm there, I'm sure I'll throw a few more things in my basket...) It's just too cute to resist though - I'm such a sucker for eyeshadow palettes, especially when they come in a fun case, like this one. The shadow colors are even prettier in person, plus I've been wanting to try the Multiplex 3D Lashes Mascara, and this seems like the easiest way to do so without buying a whole tube of it. So if you're planning to buy this at the ULTA Burbank this week and you're taking the last one, well, let's just say I'm going to be very disappointed in you...
