Lorac Cosmetics has a NEW lip gloss out, Lips With Benefits. They are purely pigmented, liquid lipsticks with really high shine, a smooth and hydrating formula, and they are paraben free!. I'm head over heels for these, and yes, I have added all the men to my wishlist (you'll see what I mean soon), even though I'm not a nude-lip-fan, I still want them all! They might seem pricey, but in a full day of wear you only need to reapply maybe 2 or 3 times at the most! I love it! OH! And they smell so delicious, I might even love the scent more than MAC lip products (WOW!).

Create a stir wtih LORAC's Lips With Benefits Gloss! This unique, hydrating formula is Paraben-Free and infused with antioxidants of Acai Berry, Pomegranate Extract and Vitamins C & E to help nourish and protect your kissable pout. These luscious glosses feature a menage-a-trois of swirling striped hues for a one-of-a-kind, high-shine finish with flirty, sexy color and a sweet Creme Brulee fragrance that will have you wanting more. No strings attached, no sticky entanglements, just a satisfying, silky-smooth application every time. Don't be bashful, Lips With Benefits comes in many complementing shades to please you so you won't have to feel guilty about choosing more than one color to love!
7 shades: Alex (berry), Ben (light peach shimmer), Chris (fuchsia shimmer), Chuck (nude), Josh (fresh pink), Mark (neutral peach), Nick (light pink shimmer)
Let's start with Alex, he's my FAVORITE! He's a pretty berry shade with silvery shimmers, you can sheer it to a tint, or pile it on for a bold glossy lip. I cannot say how much I love Alex! The packaging fools you into thinking it'll be a plain Jane pink, then you apply it and you instantly have a luscious punch of color and shine.
Now, Mark intimidated me a little. I'm not one for nude shades at all, I always steer away from them because they always dull my complexion and make me look odd (I think anyways.) But, I gave Mark a chance, and guess what?? I actually really like this shade! It's a peach that doesn't lean pink or orange - just plain old peach. Apparently that's the secret to nudes for me - stick to neutral nudes. Mark has really light shimmer, barely there, in the sunlight you can see it more. Mark is lighter than my natural lip color, but it still adds color to my lips instead of blending in with my skin tone.
Lastly is Nick, who is a pretty light pink shade with some fantastic shimmer! This actually reminds me of my Nivea Kiss Of Shimmer balm, just more pigmented, opaque and shinier - but the same type of shade/shimmer ratio. This is more of an every day lip color for me, I've got it in my purse so no matter what makeup or clothes I'm wearing, it always looks good - fresh and pretty!
