Beauty Review: LORAC 3D lipgloss

I’m pretty frugal when it comes to certain products. I’ll spend an arm and a leg on skincare products, but lipsticks and glosses? Eh. Aren’t $3 glosses just as good as glosses that cost over $20? There’s only one way to find out.

I was strolling in Sephora one fine day and came across a stunning lippie from LORAC.

Oh the beautiful glitter-ness!

This was my first time checking out any products from LORAC. I had to go home and do my research after making this purchase. What Sephora says,

“The Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss features a viscosity that visually retextures the lips, and smoothes away imperfections allowing color to appear more vivid and luminous. The unique formula is infused with antioxidants to help nourish and protect, while the creamy, moist texture helps lips look silky-smooth and ultra-glossy. It combines a liquid lipstick and lip lacquer for high-impact color and the 3-D Holographic effect will make your pout stand out!”

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrance
- Synthetic Dye
- Petro-Chemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

Well look at that! It’s a green gloss. For my ladies who doubt that higher end brands do not come out with paraben-free products, I think y’all need to take a nice long look at LORAC.

And as for the gloss, I LOVE it! It almost reminds me of MAC’s Dazzleglass but not as thick. It is long wearing and this particular color (3D) makes for great layer. It’s pretty sheer when you wear it solo.

 But man does it POP when you layer it on top of a gloss. I like the wand too. Makes for even application.

For it to retail at $22, I say it does a darn good job. I’m itching to check out some more products from LORAC. I wonder if their mascara is just as green.

Have y’all tried anything from LORAC? Or am I like 10 years late in just now discovering this brand?
