Beauty Review: LORAC's Hidden Gems!

I first fell in love with LORAC when the first Sephora store opened in the Toronto Eaton Center a few years ago. My first purchase from LORAC was the holiday gift set of the mini Lip Polishes that smelled of vanilla and peppermint. They are the cutest little glosses ever and I used to carry all of them in my purse because they were that small! Last month, I was on the hunt for the perfect peachy gloss without all the stickiness and I found it! I don't know why I had never heard of it before but LORAC's Gloss Stick in Sheer Peach is AMAZING and one of my new favourite finds!! It gives your lips enough colour, high shine, and keeps your lips feeling soft and smooth for hours. It also has a nice peachy scent. The Gloss Stick comes in two other colours Sheer Berry and Sheer Plum and a clear one for pure shine.

Another fabulous find is LORAC's Oil Free Neutralizer which neutralizes redness, conceals blemishes, undereye or blemish discolourations, or can be used on its own as a tint. Ali from ChickAdvisor.com, bought this for me to use on her during the podcast shoot! It neutralized the red areas without making her face that unflattering green that other correctors do while at the same time controlling her oily areas. It also was a great base for her foundation and lasted through each 12 hour shoot!

Nothing's getting the boot tonight! Happy shopping!

Ooo.. those sound perfect. I'm always on the hunt for the perfect lip balm that gives a sheer hint of colour, is moisturizing, a bit shiny but not super glossy, and wonderful :)

I'll try the Gloss Stick! Thanks!

I also love the Lorac Gloss Stick. I have it in Berry and I carry it with me virtually everywhere. It is great to just wipe on for a little moisture, but the color is very sheer and wearable. I recommend this find for almost anyone!
