"Get Unzipped and unleash your natural beauty with LORAC's Unzipped Cheek Palette and Alter Ego Lipstick Set. This super-sexy pearlized palette comes with 2 matte and 2 shimmer universally flattering blushes and an ultra-pigmented Alter Ego Lipstick in Girl Next Door. LORAC: UNZIPPED, UNAPOLOGETIC AND UNIMAGINABLE!"
The packaging is a slim, cardboard palette with a magnetic closure and features a mirror. The lipstick has a vanilla scent that can be noticed on initial application, but not tasted. In a whole the blushes had great pigmentation and formula, although some shades (mostly the mattes) were lightly powdery in the pan. All four blushes applied easily and blended out smoothly on the skin. I would recommend starting with a light hand to control the color and shimmer level, it's extremely easy to go overboard with this palette.

Underrated is a medium, muted pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, silky but a tad powdery in the pan. It had good pigmentation and blended out nicely and evenly on the skin. Underrated wore well for +8 hours before fading. (5/5)
Unashamed is a medium, brightened pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, silky but powdery both in the pan and on the skin. While this shade had good color payoff, it takes a little more patience to work with and blend out on the skin. Unashamed wore well for +7.5 hours. (4/5)
Unapologetic is a medium-dark, golden brown with warm undertones and a frosted gold finish. The texture was soft, smooth, silky and applied easily. This shade had good pigmentation and left a soft sheen to the skin. Unapologetic wore well for +8 hours. (5/5)
Unimaginable is a light-medium, peachy pink with warm undertones and a frosted champagne finish. The texture was again soft, smooth, silky and applied easily. It had good pigmentation and left a light, frosted sheen to the skin that didn't emphasize the look of pores or imperfections. This shade could easily be used a blush on lighter skintones, or a highlight on deeper skintones. Unimaginable wore well for +8 hours. (5/5)
Girl Next Door is a light-medium, yellow pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, fully opaque but had a thick consistency that lightly tugged during application. It had incredible, rich pigmentation in a single swipe, but the formula would benefit best by being applied with a brush. The lipstick has a vanilla scent and was lightly drying over time. Girl Next Door wore well for +4 hours. (4/5)

Overall, this set is an incredible value—you're getting a full sized lipstick and four blushes that can be worn alone or easily layered to create your own desired shade. The colors in this palette will be absolutely great for spring and summer looks, so I highly recommend picking it up if blush is an every day staple for you!
