I love me so shimmer. I love glitz, dramatic makeup, subdued glamor, I love it all.I currently own the Lorac Lustre Drops in Gold & absolutely love it. I use it on my eyes & even sometimes in the center of my lip or on my cheek bones. perfect multitasking gold year round but especially during the holiday season! When I saw Lorac was offering the Lorac Rockin’ Red Hot 3D Liquid Lustre Set containing 4 new to me (one shade is permanent while the other 3 are limited edition) for a fraction of the price I was thrilled! Keep reading to see what I thought!
Amp up your look with LORAC’s Rockin’ Red Hot 3D Liquid Lustre Set! Featuring our original, best-selling Diamond shade (white gold) plus 3 limited edition shades in Platinum (silver), Amethyst (taupe), and Topaz (warm bronze). This paraben-free, long-lasting, shimmering top coat can be applied over eye shadow or worn alone on eyes and cheeks for luminous, prismatic, 3-Dimensional sparkle and shine. Refuse to be 1-Dimensional and go 3D with LORAC!
Basically I wanted this because I was planning to buy the Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre Drops in Diamond anyway, why not pick up 3 more shades for a few bucks? The shades in Platinum, Amethyst, & Topaz are limited edition & absolutely lovely. I like that these are wearable shades because I can snaz up a neutral look simply. As much as I love blue/pink shimmer I find that those two shades are quite common as top coats while these are obviously more classic.
The packaging on these is actually glass & the top is a dropper. You can see the shade names on the bottom. It feels very sturdy & I honestly can’t imagine a better way to store or use this particular product.
Before shaking, you can see the beautiful shimmer settles. You need to shake it. Seriously.
In the video that is the most common way I use the Lorac Lustre Drops but you can also use them with a brush, on its own, or as a highlight although that isn’t my favorite. I personally like to apply it to the back of my hand but obviously you can put it on something else if you prefer. They dry quite fast on the eyelids when you gently pat them in but do let them dry. I don’t have issues with creasing but less is more. If you want more shimmer, layer it & don’t just flood your poor eyelid.
Lorac Lustre Drops in Diamond- Adds an iridescent sparkle & a fine golden shimmer. This is lovely over pretty much any eyeshadow & is very versatile. You can buy this shade on its own here.
Lorac Lustre Drops in Platinum- Very metallic & kind of a gunmetal silver. More pigmented. Limited edition at this time & only available in this set.
Lorac Lustre Drops in Amethyst- A grey/purple/brown type taupe but not as pigmented & more demure. Limited edition at this time & only available in this set.
Lorac Lustre Drops in Topaz- A copper & bronze shimmer. Perfect to amp up a neutral eye & really catches the light. More pigmented. Limited edition at this time & only available in this set.
From left to right we have Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre Drops in Diamond, Platinum, Amethyst, & Topaz.
Obviously they are more spectacular (at least in my opinion) over eyeshadow or a base of some kind. They draw in & reflect light so beautifully & add a bit of dimension. I hope they make at least a few of these shades part of their permanent collection! If they come out with more next year I’d love to see an emerald, cranberry, & maybe even some kind of holo. Wouldn’t that be fantabulous?
This set retails for $28 but it worth $64 & I just couldn’t pass it up. I actually purchased mine off Amazon with free shipping which is super handy but they’re also available on the Lorac website. I haven’t seen these available in stores but they are on the ULTA website now & labeled as online only.
Have you tried any of the Lorac Lustre Drops? What do you think of this set?
