In the beginning of June, I bought several stuff from the V.I.P. Sale section from the Lorac website.

Here's a reminder of the things I bought. A reader wanted a swatch of the lipstick. I thought I would review it for anyone interested in the product.
Product Review: Lorac Cream Lipstick in Baby Doll

Where to purchase: loraccosmetics.com
Price: $9.50 for 0.12 oz/ 3.4 g

Made in California

Description from the back: LORAC's Cream Lipsticks contain a unique blend of emollients designed to retain moisture in your lips. Get a Red Carpet picture-perfect pout with these long-lasting, rich hues that always leave your lips looking and feeling healthy, moist and full.
Ingredients:
Thoughts: At the end of last year, I've been into Lorac products. When I heard some of the Lorac products are being discontinued and are on sale on the website, I had to check it out. It might not had been a great idea because I bought some stuff that I highly doubt I need.
Here's the packaging of the lipstick. For some odd reason, it reminded me of MAC old packaging. That sure is telling you how old I am. :X
Here's a close-up shot of the lipstick. It's more on the peachy side or at least with my naked eyes.
Here's a swatch of the lipstick. I read online that it's a duplicate of MAC lipstick Hue. Unfortunately, I cannot compare the lipsticks since I have no clue what I did with the MAC lipstick.

Now for how it looks on me...
My natural lip color is light, pigmented pink lips. Lip products tend to turn more pink on me compared to others. This lipstick turned exactly the color of the swatch.
Here's how the lip color looks overall.

Now for my overall opinion... Out of the blue, I decided to smell the lipstick. It smells like a slight scent of vanilla but it's not noticeable. I never noticed the scent until I decided to sniff it. The lipstick is very creamy. It goes on smoothly and feels like silk. Unfortunately if you have dry lips, I highly recommend skipping this product. My lips are on the dry side compared to most people. I have to apply lip balm several times throughout the day. Even though the lipstick is creamy, it falls into the fine lines on my lips and makes the dry spot more noticeable. This lipstick is meant for people who have normal to moist lips. I definitely do not agree with their description that the lipstick "retain moisture in your lips". After applying the lipstick, it looks the same from beginning to end. It did not improve in dryness, as well as, looked healthier. The one thing I did like about this lipstick is the lasting power. It lasts a good amount until I had to eat or drink. I also like that the lipstick did not come off easily with pressing my lips together.

Pros:
* Pretty color.
* Not noticeable scent.
* Creamy texture.
* Feels like silk.
* Long lasting.

Cons:
* Hard to find since it's discontinued.
* Not recommended on dry lip individuals.
* Will notice the fine lines and dry patches.
* Does not improve lip moisture.

Would repurchase: No.
