I was so excited to receive a package from LORAC Cosmetics in my mailbox this week, I just wanted to take the time to post about it to yall! 😀
Before I continue, if you don’t know what LORAC is, let me explain. 🙂 As mentioned above, it’s a cosmetic company that was created by Carol Shaw – the daughter of a hairstylist and manicurist. Over the years LORAC has grown into a brand like no other — it is the Red Carpet Authority and has unparalleled access to celebrities, which says a lot about the brand!!
In their own words, “As a brand that puts care before color, but sacrifices neither, LORAC‘s treatment-based makeup is truly unique. From the plant extracts, emollients, skin rejuvenators, and conditioners they pack in their products, to the stuff left out (oil, fragrance, and other harsh ingredients), every LORAC product fulfills Shaw’s dream to design makeup that makes you look gorgeous like the stars do — without appearing as if you’re wearing much at all.”
So now that you know a little bit about the brand, I can now talk to you about the products I received to review from LORAC. It will take me a little while to go through and review everything, since I want to give each product sent to me it’s own review, but that just means more for you all to look forward to! 😀
For today’s post, I’m just going to give you a rundown of everything I received from them. As you could see from the picture above, there are several different items!
The first thing I noticed right off the bat is the Unzipped eyeshadow palette that comes with a deluxe sample of their Behind the Scenes Eye Primer. Since I am a big eyeshadow junkie (I LOVE playing with new shadows and different colors) I was thrilled to get this palette, as well as the Pro To Go eye and cheek palette. This little duo palette will come in super handy for when I travel and don’t want to take a bunch of stuff with me!
They also sent along one of their Natural Performance Foundations for me to try. I’m always on the lookout for a good foundation that will give me great coverage (since I deal with acne and hyper pigmentation a lot!) but keep my face look natural and not too cakey. So I’m excited to give this one a try! The next product was their Front of the Line Pro water-resistant liquid eyeliner. The color I received was brown, and since I only owned black liquid eyeliners before this, I was really excited about this one! The last item in my LORAC bundle was their Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss in Intermix. The color is a kind of bronzed pink – which is usually the kinds of lip colors I like to wear, so it worked perfectly!
Well, there you have it! That’s my exciting package I received in the mail this week. 🙂 I look forward to bringing y’all reviews in the near future!
I know I don’t usually post a “What’s in My mailbox” kind of thing…but I’m seriously reconsidering doing that on occasion. I’d love to get your opinion on it! Would you be interested in reading a “What’s in My Mailbox” post? I don’t think I’d post it once a week or anything (since i don’t get things that frequently), but maybe whenever I do get something in the mail. Please just feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!!
(Just as a disclaimer, I am only posting this to 1) help spread the word about LORAC and 2) show you what to expect as I break down this large bundle into several single reviews over the next few weeks. Easier than trying to pack it all into one post! Many, many thanks to LORAC for sending me these review items! 🙂
I'm excited to hear more of what the products are like! I have heard of this brand before but only a little. It will be interesting to learn more about it.
What would a "Mailbox" post be? I would answer your question, but i am not sure what it is.

4readin – What I mean by a "What's in my Mailbox" post would be something I would do to show you what I got in the mail. Maybe a few times a month…or whenever I get something noteworthy.
Like I did in this post, I would include my 'unboxing' pictures and just give you my first impressions of the products, which I'm excited about, and just an informative post about the products or company I am reviewing them for.
I hope that clarify for you! 🙂
Ohhh, alright. I think I understand. That sounds like a great idea! 😀

4readin – Thanks! It wouldn't be often — OI haven't gotten anything since this package. But I just thought it'd be something fun and different…kind of like a first impression of the products, before my official review. 🙂
