In June 2017, I went to PHAMExpo and purchased some products.

I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Parian Spirit Brush Cleaner (top left) and Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick in Old Flame (middle right). For this post, I will review the Lorac liquid lipstick set in the middle left.

Thoughts: Lorac was actually sold through the store Naimies at PHAMExpo. When I checked out this booth, I was shocked one liquid lipstick was the same price as the set. For that reason, I decided to get the set. It was a good deal and I can't pass off a bargain.
In the set, it comes with four full-size PRO Liquid Lipstick from top to bottom; Light Peach, Soft Pink, Soft Mauve, and Plum Brown.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's slight scent while applying. I just sniffed the products and they all smell the same. They smell like vanilla to me. The first time I used the liquid lipstick I didn't like the scent, but it was okay after couple of seconds. The next time I used them it didn't even bother me. It was just a one time thing. Secondly, I like the packaging. It's very attractive. It's simple with the brand and name of the product listed on the glass part of the liquid lipstick with a black top. It just looks professional. I also like that it comes in a see through packaging. If you own more than one like myself, it's easier to distinguish the colors apart. It's sturdy and well-made. The top is also sturdy. I can feel a slight squeeze when I open/close the top. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. The doe foot applicator fits with most liquid lipsticks. It has a slanted tip on one side of the applicator. It's also easy to define the lips and fill in the remaining. Third, the consistency is on the liquidity side. It's not the most liquidity liquid lipstick I have tried but it's on that side. It's easy to use and dries fast. It dries within a minute. It's not the fastest but it's doable. Once it dried, it's transfer-proof. Like all liquid lipsticks, it falls on the natural lip and in-between all the fine/deep lines. I noticed the lighter colors (Light Peach and Soft Pink) define the fine/deep lines more so than the deeper colors (Soft Mauve and Plum Brown). The lighter colors are also more streakier as well. When I applied Light Peach and Soft Pink no matter how hard I tried to smooth the colors out, it just got thick and unattractive. I saw the deeper lines coming out and I find my deep lines not that pretty. I don't mind the fine lines. I think it's pretty and it's my signature lips. I didn't have any issue with the deeper/brighter colors Soft Mauve and Plum Brown. One thing I found interesting is that Plum Brown is oilier than the rest. When I did the swatch on my hand, all the colors came out fine except Plum Brown. It was just oil until I shook the bottle. I learned that with these liquid lipsticks from Lorac, it's recommended to shake before applying. I don't mind shaking the product but knowing myself, I will forget since other liquid lipsticks don't need shaking. Fourth, I only like two colors (Soft Mauve and Plum Brown). Light Peach and Soft Pink did not look good on my skin tone. It just blended with the skin tone. Soft Mauve and Plum Brown showed some color on my skin. To be honest, I cannot see myself reach for Light Peach and Soft Pink. Most likely I will mix these with lip liners or other liquid lipsticks. With that said, these will look great with smokey makeup. Soft Mauve will be great all season, whereas, Plum Brown is great for fall season. I can see myself wearing these colors. Pigmented-wise I have impressed. It's not the most pigmented but it's up there with all four colors. Lastly, it lasted until I ate. The grease from the food loosen the chemical in the center of the lips. Most of the colors came off in the center, whereas, the outline was there until the end of the day. I found it comfortable and not drying at all. I did not see any white residue from dryness. I noticed a lot of people in the blogosphere did not review these products and I wondered why it's not that popular. Now I can understand. It's not the best but it's not that bad. If you do get colors from this line, I recommend passing the lighter colors!

* Slight scent while applying.
* Attractive, professional looking packaging.

Cons:
* Lighter colors (Light Peach and Soft Pink) define the deep lines.

Would repurchase: Yes.
