Review & Swatches: Lorac Pro Eyeshadow Palette

Overall: GREAT
I am a fan of Lorac in general and so far this is my favorite palette yet.


Fun Fact: Lorac is Carol spelled backward for makeup artist Carol Shaw (the creator)

16 Eyeshadows (8 Matte Shades & 8 Shimmer Shades) .32 oz & a Mini Behind the Scenes Eye Primer .17 oz

Matte
White
Cream
Taupe
Lt Pink
Mauve
Sable
Espresso
Black

Shimmer
Nude: Peachy Nude 
Champagne: Similar to Nude w/ little more light taupe w/ iridescent micro glitter
Gold: Very coppery gold metallic
Lt Bronze
Pewter: More of a bronze than silvery pewter
Garnet: Coppery Maroon
Deep Purple
Slate: Gun Metal

PACKAGING: LOVE
They won me over with the very thin and easy to store packaging.  It comes with a nice size mirror built in, magnetic closure, matte black covering with silver foil lettering.  There is no super cute design but it does look nice.

COLORS: LOVE
  • Color Selection: Perfect mix of Matte & Shimmer, neutral & bold.  Create any type of look. The color names are very true to their color with a few exceptions noted above.
  • Pigmentation: Great  Really saturated colors
  • Quality: Amazing (infused with botanicals which are supposed to be soothing ... not sure if that makes a difference).
  • Uses: Wet or Dry  So it would be easy to use these as eyeliners too
PRICE: GOOD
About $42 dollars US (suggested value of $110 or so says Lorac's marketing department)

WITHOUT:
- Sulfates

- Parabens
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan


If you are getting started in makeup or just looking for an everyday staple then this would be a good palette for you.
