Lorac Summer Collection 2009: Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow and Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush

Lorac The Muse sometimes doesn't give you enough tender, loving, care. Please don't take offense, I do so adore you but sometimes you get pushed to the back corner but have no fear you have my utmost attention this Summer with all your delightful baked goodies.

Lorac introduces two brand new baked goodies with it's Summer Collection. Introducing Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow and Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush, I know, I know matte! Try not to panic! I promise we are all going to be ok.

Matte scares a Muse and probably scares about 99% of you as well. But I must say that both the Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow and Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush look utterly dreamy and possibly easy to blend especially since they are baked which makes them extra silky smooth plus "satin" is in the name!

I'm partial to the Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush available in three shades for $24 USD each...I could cope with gathering up all three for my very own!

Shades available:
  • Exposed (Peachy Pink)
  • Hollywood (Bronzed Rose)
  • Velvet Rose (Plum Rose)

It's probably safe to say Lorac could probably talk me into purchasing two or three of it's brand new Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadows as well available in 5 shades for $22 USD each.

Shades available:
  • Chic (White)
  • Drama (Charcoal)
  • Insider (Deep Blue)
  • Posh (Nude)
  • Social (Brown)

Well, hello there Posh and Social! The Muse happens to be both very posh and very social (at least she likes to think she is) so you're perfect for her.

All in all I think I like the looks of these even though "matte" is thrown around. They look quite silky and very pigmented! The Muse must get to Sephora and pick up a few for review. Keep it tuned here for the good word. It's ok to admit that matte is where it's at sometimes.

Wants 'em?

Loves 'em?

Tell me!

Actually, Prestige Cosmetics makes baked eyeshadows and blushes that are deceptively similar for a fraction of the price; often you can get them in BOGO or BOGO 1/2 off, or even, Buy Two, Get One Free deals. I purchased three such baked eyeshadows at Ulta for $11 and change, thanks to a sales promotion and a coupon.

While I am not a fan of mattes, Fyrinnae is slowly converting me. I also like some of the MAC Satins. How do you find Lorac compares to MAC?

How easy are they to blend?
I tend to feel like a novice when it comes to blending mattes.

I only purchased the eyeshadows, but I thought they were okay, all things considered. Did you try applying them wet? I find it works like a charm for the eyeshadows.
