Lorac Pro Palette is a product I’ve lusted after for at least eighteen months now, after seeing it feature in hundreds of favourites or tutorial YouTube videos. I’m a serious eyeshadow palette fiend and own a ridiculous amount that will probably serve me til I’m 95 but I simply can’t resist an array of beautiful eyeshadows with a palette. Lorac is a brand we can’t get here in the UK which had only heightened my desire to own it, the heart wants what it can’t have.
The Lorac Pro Palette $42 is a neutral eye lovers dream, containing an amazing 16 shadows in a range of divine hues. What makes the Lorac Pro Palette so unique is that the top row of shadows all have a matte finish and the bottom row of shadows are all shimmers so you could create an abundance of different looks from the one palette. Included with the palette is a 5.5g tube of the Lorac Behind The Scenes Eyeshadow Primer too, making the palette even more of a fantastic deal with a combined value of over $110.
The Lorac Pro Palette is a long, slim, light palette housed within card packaging which may not be the most robust material, it certainly is lightweight and travel-friendly. The outer casing has a rubberised texture to it which I really like although I envisage it’ll soon get marks all over it through use as it’s very similar to that of NARS.
The lid closes shut thanks to a magnet, which does keep the palette closed quite securely for a card palette but if I was to travel with it, I’d probably put a couple of hair ties round each end just to grip it tight. Within the lid there is a narrow mirror which is always a good inclusion within a palette especially if you do take it away with you. Each of the 16 shadows are individually named, and are spaced out enough that you wouldn’t transfer shadow into the surrounding pans.
I really love and get a lot of use out of my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette so I was particularly excited to have a palette containing a further 8 matte shades as good matte eyeshadows are quite hard to find. From watching countless YouTube videos I already knew that the pigmentation and lasting power of these shadows is immense and I totally agree.
