LORAC Back to Bronze Collection: Review, Pics, Swatches!


LORAC Back to Bronze


Press Sample


Welcome back warmth with LORAC’s Back To Bronze Collection! After weeks of rain we here in the Pacific Northwest are finally getting back to warm (hot!) weather and back to that sun-kissed beach babe look. If you don’t have a beach, fake it with this fab collection from LORAC!

This perfect Beach-Ready Bag contains everything you need to look bronze and beautiful this season:

  • 3D Lustre/Liner in Copper/Black Cherry
  • Cobra Mascara
  • TANtalizer® Baked Bronzer (Travel-Size)
  • Alter Ego Cream Lipstick in Girl Next Door
  • Lip Lustre Gloss in Peach Lustre
  • Travel Bag

The dual-ended 3D Lustre liner is awesome sauce! The black cherry shade is not too harsh and the shimmery copper shade really makes eyes sparkle and shine! I used Black Cherry really close to the lash line and then used copper on top of that, then I applied Urban Decay Zero on my waterline.

I must admit I’m not that impressed with the LORAC Cobra mascara, but then you KNOW how picky I am about mascara! The brush is curved which helps a bit with application, but the formula was too dry for my liking. Since I heart mascara it has to be pretty special for me to love it and this was just meh.

LORAC Mascara

TANtalizer Baked Bronzer looks very peachy swatched but it looks more natural on the skin. I do, however like to use it mostly as a blush just because it has shimmer to it. I prefer a matte bronzer for a more natural look. This trial size is great for throwing in your bag if you need a touch-up when going from work to drinks, preferable a mojito on a hot summer day–yummmm!

LORAC TANtilizer

Alter Ego Lipstick in Girl Next Door is infused with Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed and Vitamin C & E to coat your lips in luscious, rich color. It is bright without being vivid and has more of a matte finish than I expected.  Top it with Lip Lustre Gloss in Peach Lustre for glossy, shiny lips.

    It’s a really great look on you, Cindy! Unfortunately, I just haven’t been impressed with the quality of LORAC, lately. I remember when Carol Shaw first came out with the line, and it was one of the few “makeup artist created” lines. It was high-end and the quality was great. Sadly, I’m assuming she sold it, and, like Stila, it just isn’t what it used to be!

  22. What a great deal for all of these products!

  23. What a cute set and it looks phenomenal on you. Just beautiful.
