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.
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?
