I went with the Pro palette - it has a great mix of colours and is actually a fair bit different than any of the other palettes I have, making it a great addition in my collection!
The Lorac Pro Palette also came with a sample of the Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer.
Lorac Pro Palette ~ $44.00 US. Go PRO with the LORAC PRO Palette! Created by celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw, this PRO artistry palette is packed with 8 shimmer and 8 matte eye shadows in all the shades you need to create the hottest looks straight from the Red Carpet. LORAC's velvety-smooth shadows are infused with soothing botanicals and are ultra-pigmented to perform wet or dry so you can shade, shadow, line and define your eyes, just like a PRO. PRO Palette contains 16 Eye Shadows and a Mini Behind The Scenes Eye Primer for stay-true color that lasts, a PRO must-have!
I really love that this palette included an equal amount of matte and shimmer eye shadows that coordinate with each other. This is a mixture of cool and warm toned shades, and I like the options of both in a palette to create multiple different looks!
These shadows are so beautiful and super-soft, buttery like! So smooth, they glide on the skin and are highly pigmented!
Here is a look at the swatches:
The top row is all matte and the shadows have very straight-forward names so you know what they are! They all apply very smooth and only the black is a touch patchy which can generally be expected in darker shadows.
The bottom row is all shimmer shadows and these are absolutely gorgeous! The gold shadow holy moly - so amazing!
I created both a day and an evening look to give you an idea of how versatile the palette is. I used the Lorac Eye Shadow Primer prior to applying both looks!
Day Look: Cream under the brow, Mauve and Pewter in the crease, Champagne on the lid. I completed the look with a brown pencil eyeliner and 2 coats of Rollerlash Mascara.
I have to say that the Lorac Pro Palette was a solid purchase - I love how soft and luxurious the shadows feel! They are also highly pigmented and show up well on the lid! The palette is versatile and I really like the variety of shades and tones included! I would highly recommend this palette, especially if you have not tried Lorac shadows before!
