LORAC spring 2016
What is it about spring that makes me want to bust out different products as well as begin experimenting?
Could it be that spring cleaning is in full swing; the windows are lastly large available to let in a wonderful smelling breeze; it stays light out well into the evening as well as (at least where I live) after a long white, boring winter, the whole world seems to be vibrant again?
It’s lastly sunny on a routine basis where I’m from! — a land I will lovingly refer to as “the arctic tundra.” (We’re not that far north. I’m just being dramatic.) Of course, for me, this indicates that I requirement to begin bringing out my BRIGHTEST clothing, like my yellow cardigan as well as purple silk blouse. You name it — if it’s bright, I’m gonna wear it to celebrate the season.
For that reason, I like to keep my spring makeup a bit a lot more understated, as well as LORAC has a riches of new spring 2016 products to help.
LORAC released some genuinely magnificent blushes as well as lipsticks, two of which I’m using above. The color source Buildable Blushes ($22 each) are pigmented bit pops of color in a gorgeous variety of colors from neutral to electric purple.
They’re 100% matte as well as smooth as butter, provided their lack of shimmer. My worst headache in a matte blush is a product that deposits color on the cheeks however then blends poorly because of a rigid texture, as well as I’m delighted to report that LORAC color source Buildable blush blends like a dream! The pigmentation is intense, as well as these blushes blend exceptionally well, enabling for layering to diverse degrees of intensity.
I paired the bright pops of color on my cheeks with a nude lip, the new LORAC change Ego Lipstick in Exhibitionist ($17, special to Kohl’s). When I believe of a traditional lipstick formula, these change Ego Lipsticks have it. Thick however smooth as well as simple to apply, they’re extremely pigmented and, although not marketed as long-lasting, stick around on my lips for a number of hours.

Wearing new makeup from LORAC spring 2016
As far as my eyes are concerned, I kept the look basic as well as traditional with a soft brown smokey look appropriate for daytime wear in the office, coupled with a light flick of black liner as well as some killer mascara. all of these products are offered in the LORAC Soft to Smokey eye collection at ULTA ($30 each).
This set is packed with whatever needed to accomplish a large variety of smokey looks, be they subtle as well as brightening for daytime, or deeper for a night on the town. The collection would be perfect to throw in a little makeup bag if you’re planning to shift your makeup to fun time after work.
Alas, although I took these photos on a Friday, my evening enjoyment included convincing two excessively worn out kids to sleep…but maybe you have something a lot more interesting up your sleeve?
The collection includes LORAC Front of the Line pro Eye Pencil in Black ($20 value), the brand’s Cobra Mascara ($21 value), a combination consisting of the shades Cream, Beige, Rosy brown as well as Dark Brown, as well as a sample size Behind the Scenes Eye Primer. I elected to keep my look lighter as well as mostly utilized cream on my brow bone as well as a blend of beige as well as Rosy brown on my lids.
These shadows layer well, indicating that the collection truly can take you from soft to smokey!

I like it when a brand brings out an variety of products that aren’t necessarily part of a cohesive collection, since it provides fans the chance to mix as well as match as well as pick products that are completely tailored to their own lifestyle. LORAC’s spring 2016 releases are diverse, from the pops of cheeky color to traditional va-va-voom pigmented lips as well as buildable smokey eyes. This breadth is what makes the brand fantastic as well as easily accessible for everybody at a “splurge however not as well much of a splurge” cost point.
