Spotted: LORAC Alter Ego Matte Lipstick Value Set at Kohl's (with Reader Swatches)

Have you heard about this new LORAC value set at Kohl's? It was definitely new to me until longtime reader Allison (@allibally on Instagram) kindly shared these pics--and swatches--with me today. Check it out!

NOTE: Remember that if you can't find this set at your local Kohl's store, you can order it at a Kohl's Kiosk (located in-store) and you'll get free shipping, no minimum order required.

LORAC Alter Ego Matte Lipstick Set 
(retail: $35 at Kohl's - $80 value)

These are full-size tubes and, as you probably know, just one full-size Alter Ego Lipstick retails for $16 on the LORAC website, which truly makes this an $80 value as printed on the box. For perspective, you're paying $7 per lipstick here, which is about the price of your average drugstore lipstick these days. Also, I love that all of the shades in this set have a matte finish.

More pics and some swatches, after the jump...

While I have yet to personally try these matte shades, I've heard that the lighter shades in this range can get a bit chalky, but that the medium and deeper shades are quite nice.

By the way, there's a detailed, informative review of Free Spirit on MakeupAlley HERE that might be helpful to you if you are a purple lippie fan.

Have you spotted this set at your local Kohl's yet? Do you already own any of these shades? I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks again, Allison, for the great sighting, pics and swatches!


  1. oMG! I missed the 3 set from HSN and so happy I could try to get this one. You know if I can use the extra 30 percent off coupon on these?

  2. Lorac is excluded from the 30% off coupons, however, you can use Kohls Cash:)

  3. I don't see these on the kohl website. does anyone know if they can be ordered online?


  4. I own Duchess and love it--it's the perfect nude lippie for my pale skin (with peach undertones) and has become my go-to when I need to look low-key and polished. Love the formula as well.

  5. Just picked these up at my local Kohls. Amazing deal.

  6. I went yesterday and grabbed this! I had gotten one of the lipsticks in the set, Free Spirit, for Christmas and hadn't opened it yet, so I returned that and got this for $20!! That is basically buying one and get the others for $1 each!! Amazing!!

  7. Does anyone know why these are in a gold tube versus silver tube in the swatch links and on the lorac website?

  8. Vixen and Free Spirit look pretty!
