Review: Lorac Pro Palette 2

November 9, 2014

So recently I had a bit of a bad day (wanna read an old post on how I cope with bad days? Here you go) and I had a sneaky impulse buy...I know, I shouldn't have, but I'm not even sorry considering how much I love this product. I went for the Lorac Pro Palette 2, and I cannot get over how phenomenal it is.

I'm sure you've heard about the Lorac Palettes, because pretty much everyone has raved about them. They each come with 16 shades, 8 matte and 8 shimmery. I find that every single color is something I would use, which makes this palette really versatile and different than the rest of the neutral palettes I have. It's also a good palette to travel with because it has so many useful shades and it's really thin, so it's easy to pack.

The shadows are so incredibly pigmented. You only need a little bit on your brush and that's enough - that's how great these are. The shades are all so soft, smooth, and buttery, which means they blend together seamlessly. 

Lastly, the most important thing: these last well throughout the day. More often than not my makeup kinda sorta melts away by the afternoon, but these shadows have held up. The longevity especially helps with setting eyeliner, particularly the shade 'black'.

The top row is made up of the matte shades: Buff, Lt. Brown, Cool Gray, Nectar, Plum, Navy, Charcoal, and Black (swatches from bottom to top).

The bottom row is all the shimmery shades: Snow, Beige, Rose, Mocha, Chrome, Silver, Jade, Cocoa (swatches again from bottom to top). I especially love these shades because they're not too out there with the shimmer. I recently went through a period where I almost hated all my eyeshadows because they felt heavy and sparkly (even though I was probably overreacting and just being weird and hormonal), but once I tried these shades I was able to wear eyeshadow again. 

My favorite ways to use this palette have been: 
  • Rose all over, blended out
  • Buff or Nectar on the lid with either Lt. Brown or Cool Gray in the crease
  • Navy or Plum on the lower lashline
  • Cocoa in the outer corner
I also briefly mentioned 'plum' in my last post, which was all about purple products in my makeup collection. Check it out here

Thanks for reading! Have you tried this palette?
