LORAC Pirates of the Caribbean Cheek Palette ($30.00 for 0.54 oz.) includes three highlighters and three blushes. The palette features the brand’s Light Source Illuminating Highlighter and Color Source Buildable Blush formulas. The highlighter formula is supposed to be buildable and luminous, but my experience with them was that they were quite pigmented–soft enough to blend them out or use a bit less for sheerer coverage, just not what I’d actually describe as buildable. As you might guess from the name, the blush is supposed to be buildable, though two of the three shades were rather pigmented and one was more medium and buildable. The palette’s more amped up pigmentation was why it was rated lower, but if you’re the type of person who wants more pigmented highlighters and blushes, then it should work well for you.

LORAC Brunch Queen Alter Ego Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cooler undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation–though not opaque–that applied evenly across the lips. The consistency was creamy, smooth, and had moderate slip, which gave the finish some shine. There was a touch of color that pulled into my lip lines but was less than I would have expected given the texture and lightness of the color. It wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

The Alter Ego Lipstick formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “satin finish.” For pastels, the I Love Brunch shades are surprisingly good–they did not sink into lip lines as badly as most pastel-hued lip colors do (especially given how much slip these had) and applied fairly evenly. They weren’t perfect, but they were better than I would have expected.

LORAC California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette ($30.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in both matte and shimmer finishes. The palette runs warmer, but it seemed more like a neutral palette with pops of rose and mauve accents. The formula felt looser and drier overall; sort of like LORAC’s “filler” formula, when they put together more affordable palettes but aren’t part of their Pro collection (which always has a silkier, more refined feel). I find that this formula can be better or worse depending on the shades and finishes. The downsides of the formula tend to be that they are prone to fading more quickly and sheering out, so a good primer is an absolute must-have to make this palette wear and perform well.

LORAC California Dreaming Cheek Palette ($30.00 for 0.48 oz.) contains four cheek colors to add “highlight, color, and glow” to your skin. The texture of the four shades was very similar to their permanent Colour Source Buildable Blush and Light Source Highlighter formulas. They felt smooth, soft without being too dusty or dry on the skin, and had pigmentation that ranged from medium to opaque (the “downside” to both formulas has always been they’re often more pigmented than buildable, which you may prefer or may be a deal breaker). This is a rather warm-toned palette, so it will work best for someone who likes warmer, brown and peach shades along with a fair amount of shimmer.

LORAC Brunch Queen Alter Ego Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cooler undertones and fine pearl. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied evenly on the lips–as in the color did not show streaks–but pulled into every lip line I had, so it did not look that great on its own. The texture was smooth, creamy without being thick, and comfortable to wear over the three hours it lasted on me.

The Alter Ego Lip Gloss formula is supposed to offer “highly pigmented” color with a “soft, vanilla scent.” The four new, limited edition shades for spring are more pastel, and as a result, they tended to suffer from a milkier consistency that was prone to settling into my lip lines. They had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with average wear (three hours). The formula had a sweet, vanilla scent, was mostly non-sticky, and lightly hydrating.
