When I think of spring colors I usually think of pastel shades of pink, blue and green. The last few years coral entered that mix and this year brings mauve. I love these 2 shades especially when it comes to makeup! For today’s post I’m sharing a Lorac Alter Ego lipstick and gloss, in both a mauve and a coral shade, and lip liner options for both sets. I’m also linking some more affordable options!

Why Lorac Alter Ego?

I am particularly fond of Lorac Cosmetics and had been eyeing the Alter Ego lip glosses so I was very excited to try them.  I ordered 2 colors that I thought would look good on me- a lipstick and matching gloss in both.

Coral: Girl Next Door lipstick and gloss, Peachy-Beachy liner

Mauve: Goddess lipstick and gloss, Eastend Snob liner

I like the Alter Ego lip products a lot! The lipsticks say that they are “highly pigmented” and they truly are. Because they are a cream, they are comfortable. The gloss is also pigmented and it’s not too sticky- which is great! I have to add that its pretty ironic that these could likely be my alter egos. 🙂

Alternatives

To be honest, I and loving these shades for all makeup, regardless of the brand. Andddd nail polish, clothes and accessories too. I guess I just really like these colors, haha! That being said, I also want to share some links for some more affordable options of these Spring lip colors. While I’m sure you can find these colors in most brands, these brands are 2 of my favorites.

NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel and Vanilla Cream Pie

CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Coral Cat and Kitty Purry (the lipstick that got me hooked on mauve)

I shared these lip combos on Instagram (and this post), be sure to look there for more shots of them!

  1. oh..these colors are so fab! I was in a mauve phase awhile back but totally want to check these out now! Such a great color for spring! And I’m loving the coral! Never thought I would but it looks surprisingly good on! I also love Lorac’s formulas – definitely money well spent. I also have to ask – you have some FAB nail color happening in this post – what is it??

      Thank you, Jill! These are definitely more intense colors than I’ve tried in the past but was also pleasantly surprised by how they look on. I really like Lorac and yes, these formulas are great! The nail color is called Total Honesty. Its the Perfect Match Gel Polish by LeChat. 🙂

    The colors are classic and I believe would be great for most anyone. I have never tried that brand. My sister sells MK, so I pretty much just use that, but I love learning about new products. 🙂
