LORAC Brunch Queen is a very cool-toned, medium-dark lavender with a cream finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
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.
