Hautelook by Nordstrom (and Lorac Review)

I was introduced to Hautelook about a month ago, and when I was shopping around I came across some Lorac products on sale. I decided, after much indecisive flip-flopping, to purchase the Rockin' Red Hot limited edition mini lip gloss collection. which comes with 8 different shades varying from nude to pink to red and even one light purple. It did take a while for me to receive my order from Hautelook once it was placed, but since I was in no hurry it wasn't so bad.

Shade names are:
Amp (Nude)
Electric (Pink Nude)
Groupie (Baby Pink)
Tour (Petal Pink)
Backstage (Fuchsia)
Solo (Magenta)
Encore (Red Coral)
Rock (Sheer Purple)

Overall I wasn't impressed with the glosses, they were a lot more sheer than I expected, and the color practically disappears on the lips once applied. Some of them have a bit too much glitter in them for my taste, and it wasn't all that finely milled either. The packaging of the product is extremely cute, but I still wish that the colors were more opaque and pigmented. I'll keep trying them and see if my opinion changes, but thus far the colors I have tried have not made me all that excited.

Stay Beautiful
