Lorac PRO Palette Review


Lorac PRO Palette review

I mentioned in my try not to buy haul on Monday that I would have a full review of the Lorac PRO palette today so here it is! I know these have been done to death but I can’t help myself, I absolutely love it and I want to talk about it!  

I have wanted this palette for years – I used to see it all the time on Youtube and blogs with The Anna Edit and Estee Lalonde being my main enablers. I always remember how much trouble Estee had getting this palette because it was always out of stock so when my friend was in America on holiday recently and asked if there was anything I wanted back I said this palette and told her not to go out of her way to find an ULTA. She found one though with a fully stocked Lorac stand and I could not be happier!

Lorac PRO palette  original review

This palette had become my go to and I haven’t put it down in the three weeks I’ve had it! The packaging is super slim line and matte black and is definitely looking a little grubby already but I couldn’t care less! Inside are 16 beautifully pigmented neural eyeshadows with 8 mattes along the top row and 8 shimmers (1 sparkle to be precise) along the bottom.

The mattes do have a bit of fallout and you only need to lightly dip your eye brush in to get amazing payoff! If I’m going for a matte eye I love using Light Pink to set my eye as its really brightening then I usually go for Taupe or Mauve through the crease and I’ll build up my outer corner with Sable and Espresso before using Cream in my inner corner and halfway across my lid and then I'll use Black to line my upper lid.

If I’m doing something a little more special, I’ll use basically the same combination but instead of Cream, I’ll pop Pewter or Light Bronze over my lid. I will pluck up the courage to try out Garnet one of these days too! As usual my swatches do no justice to how pigmented and smooth these eyeshadows really are! 

With the palette also came a mini Behind the Scenes eye primer which I have been enjoying using. It dries matte quickly and brightens up my eyelid but I do find oils start to peak through during the day. I have oily lids and most primers start to fail on me after half a day’s wear so I don’t hold that against it. It’s fine for daytime use but I still something like the NARS one if I’m going out as it lasts a little longer.

Overall, if you can’t already tell, I am in love with this palette and it has very quickly climbed to the top of my favourite palette list! The quality of the shadows is amazing and though I probably would have liked to have seen another mid toned matte brown on the top row instead of the stark white I really don’t have anything bad to say about it at all! I feel like this is what I wanted the Smashbox Full Exposure palette to be but the bottom row shimmers in that palette are awful and I never reach for it even though I love the mattes. The mattes in the Lorac palette remind me of the Kat Von D Shade and Light eye palette which I also love but I do think the Lorac is more versatile as it has the shimmers too! 10 out of 10! 

What do you think of this palette? What’s on you eyeshadow palette wishlist?

  4. Yay! Amazing review of an amazing palette that is definitely on my wish list now if it wasn't already. There is a lot of fallout in the Pro Matte too but like you said, they're insanely pigmented. I want to try some of these shimmers now. So happy you got your hands on this finally and that you're pleased with it xxx

  6. The shades look really pretty, Im glad you said they are more pigmented than the swatches. It is strange how some shadows can be super pigmented when you use them but they don't swatch as good.

  7. That's a beautiful palette and colour payoff is really good! Shimmery eyeshadows look creamy, pewter and garnet are my favourite. I don't see the point of white tho, it hardly shows up. Anna is always an enabler :)

  22. I totally love the Lorac palette I have (though agree they do have some fallout) so maybe I need to add this to my collection as you can't really go wrong with these shades :)

  23. A great collection of neutral shadows it seems. I have quite a lot of them already, so I am not i terested, but especially good quality mattes are hard to find.
