The One and Only LORAC PRO

DSCN9784

 

Here I am, writing a post about the long-awaited LORAC PRO palette, yup it’s been a long time coming. I’m sure this beautiful palette doesn’t need introducing but either way, it deserves another fangirl raving. There are 8 matte shades and 8 satin/shimmery shades housed in this very sleek cardboard packaging. I’m not the biggest fan of cardboard packaging but I can’t deny that together with the big mirror, it makes a great – if not perfect – travel companion. Talking about traveling, I can easily take this as my only eyeshadow wardrobe on holidays and be settled. Oh yes, it’s that good.

At a 42 dollar price point, it doesn’t disappoint. On the contrary, it lives up to my high expectations! The shade range is just impressive and gives rein to your imagination – day to night looks, it has you covered. The palette has overall – mostly warm – neutral shades with a few pop of colours. Of course all the coveted adjectives apply to these: creamy, buttery, smooth and a dream to blend. The pigmentation is also not a letdown, a light dip in the pan is enough to dispose enough colour on your lids. The matte shades are the most impressive ones as good ones are mostly a rarity. It’s worth mentioning that they are very soft in texture which means that there’s a lot of excess powder that gets kicked up the moment you tap your brush on the side of your palette. The palette may get messy but luckily your face doesn’t – no fall-out during application!

My favourite shades out of the palette are Lt Bronze, a peachy champagne shade that makes a great base. Taupe, a light camel brown that makes the perfect transitioning shade. Pewter, can’t deny another great taupe. Garnet, a lovely rusted copper that makes my heart skip a beat. Below you can see the look that I have been sporting the most up until now being Lt Bronze as a base, Garnet on the outer ⅔ of the lid, Sable in the outer corner to smoke things up ever so slightly, Taupe in the crease. Under my lower lashes I smudged Garnet with Sable in the outer v. In the inner corners I have Nude and Cream on my brow bone.

It was a non-successful challenge for me to reach for anything else than this swoon-ish palette. This proves how much I love this hard to get palette. And yes, it’s totally worth blood, sweat and tears – even a plane ticket would be justified, just sayin’ …
