Roll Out the Red Carpet with Lorac, & Meet Carol Shaw!

Being the huge celebrity that I am, I just don't have the time or patience to spend on applying lots of makeup that doesn't perform. I mean, in between the movie screenings, killer afterparties, and trips to the French Riviera, who has the time to waste on junky products and messy singles?

OK, so maybe I am exaggerating just a wee bit, but good palettes are hard to come by, while great liquid liners are even harder to spot. Fortunately, LORAC has the cure for what ails you (and me). LORAC proves that you don't have to be rich and famous to have quality makeup that works as hard as you do, whether you are a Hilton or a simple suburban gal.

I have not had the opportunity to explore much of the line before, but after trying both the Red Carpet Reveal Palette, and Front of the Line Pro Liner, I swiftly kicked myself in the shins (not easy, trust me) for not trying LORAC sooner. I came, I swatched, I tested, and I promptly fell madly in love.

Front of the Line Pro Black Liquid Liner

Front of the Line Pro Liner is a gift from above, and an amazing liquid liner to boot. This sleek pen applies both the thinnest and thickest of lines, and does. not. move! I have previously declared my love for the fabulous Chanel liquid liner pens, but Front of the Line Pro has now bumped Chanel out of the rotation. The black shade is rich, with a slight metallic sheen to it. Best of all, no clicking necessary, and no ooze to deal with.

Red Carpet Reveal Palette

The Red Carpet Reveal Palette houses a beautiful trio of neutral eyeshadow shades, alongside a dusty rose blush. Not one to gravitate towards neutrals usually, it was the quality and versatility of the palette that drew me in at first. Each and every shade is buttery soft and deliciously pigmented. The colors range from a shimmering pale gold to rich, deep chocolate brown, with textures that are in that perfect state of everyday shadow homeostasis, right between a shimmer and a matte.

Don't take my word for it, here are the swatches:

And here is an fotd featuring the palette and liner as well:

These new offerings from Lorac are definitely not to be missed. Seriously, you need these now. Get your own at, or, and get camera ready in no time flat.
