LORAC’s new Lip Luxe 8 Hour Lip Colors are said to be long-lasting, pigmented, and infused with antioxidants. These new lipsticks come in 6 shades. This review is for the shades True Red and Bordeaux.
These lipsticks come in very light-weight, reflective steel tubes. The bullets are narrow and slated at the ends.
True Red is a medium, neutral red shade with a matte finish. Once it’s applied to the lips, it has a brighter, candy apple-like quality to it.
Bordeaux is a red wine shade with a matte finish. Once it’s applied it’s not as deep in color.
Both these shades are pigmented and opaque on the lips while still allowing the natural texture of your lips to show through. True Red has hint of sheen to its finish, while Bordeaux is more matte.
The Lip Luxe formula applies to the skin fairly well. There is also a small amount of antioxidants in the ingredients. The formula has a slightly powdery finish, so those with already dry lips will want to apply a moisturizing balm on top. Otherwise, these lipsticks aren’t overly drying.
The matte formula adheres well to the skin, making these shades last for 3-5 hours before needing re-application or touching-up. Even after several hours, the shades leave a stain behind on the lips for a few more hours.
Ease of Use: 9/10
The matte formula is on the drier side, but is typical for a matte lip product. These apply pretty well given their matte quality, without too much tugging.
For $16.00 you get 0.05 ounces (1.7 grams) of product. This is a significantly smaller amount of product per dollar compared to most lipsticks from competitor brands.
