With a hairstylist father and a manicurist mother, it’s safe to say that LORAC creator Carol Shaw was born into the beauty business. As a teenager, a makeover at a Beverly Hills salon (a graduation present from her aunt) changed not only her look, but her life as well. “I’ll never forget how incredible that makeup artist made me feel, I looked and felt like a star!” says Shaw, who left that day realizing her destiny: To be a makeup artist.
As a brand that puts care before color, but sacrifices neither, LORAC’s treatment-based makeup is truly unique. From the plant extracts, emollients, skin rejuvenators, and conditioners they pack in their products, to the stuff left out (oil, fragrance, and other harsh ingredients), every LORAC product fulfills Shaw’s dream to design makeup that makes you look gorgeous like the stars do—without appearing as if you’re wearing much at all.
When I leave the house, I want to look like a star but I don’t want to look made up. I want a natural look that leaves me feeling confident and put together without looking fake. Most of all, I don’t want the make up I’m wearing to be harsh on my skin. I received lip gloss and eye liner from LORAC to try out and I was thrilled! The Tie Dye For Lip Gloss leaves my lips with a gorgeous high gloss. It’s infused with Acai Berry and Pomegranate to add a boost of powerful antioxidants that help nourish and protect. The natural emollients like grape seed oil, apricot oil and coconut oil soothe and moisturize. The Tie Dye For Collection includes colors Flaming Mix (red), Shocking Twist (fuchsia), Social Mixer (pale pink), Berry Blender (purple) and In the Mix (nude). I love how they made my lips feel!
The LORAC Sparkle Pencil is infused with sparkle to add drama, color and definition to your eyes. They can be found in midnight sparkle (black), paparazzi (brown), pink diamond (pink) and blue topaz (blue with silver). They glide on smoothly and have a creamy texture so it’s very easy to apply them. I really love the sparkle in these liners. It really plays up your eyes!
LORAC offers free shipping on orders over $50 so now is the perfect time to get your holiday make up! They even offer VIP discounts on select products!
