Worth the hype? Lorac Pro Palette

Lorac Pro Palette review

I'll be honest, I was pretty chuffed when I finally got my hands on the Lorac Pro Palette. It was incredibly hyped last year, but alas so difficult to get your hands on this side of the Pond. For a long time I held off paying the extortionate customs and shipping charges but it was inevitable and one day I crumbled.

The Lorac Pro Palette boasts 16 colours, eight of which are mattes and the rest shimmers. This to me is perfect. I love having a mix of the two, this way you can create so many amazing looks with just the one palette. It mainly consists of warm colours, and there's also a really good mix of shades so you can either create a simple fuss-free wash of colour for the day, or go all out smokey eye for the evening. It really does offer the best of both worlds.

Let's talk about pigment, and believe me, you will not be disappointed with the Lorac Pro Palette! The formula is incredibly buttery and super pigmented. In fact, it may be a little too buttery as there is a fair amount of fall out from these shadows. You really just need to lightly press your brush into the shadow as a swipe will leave you with enough eyeshadow to make up an entire troop of Victoria's Secret models. So unless that's what you're doing, go easy! When I first used mine I used far too much so lesson learnt there. We don't want to be wasting something this gorgeous now do we?

I'm yet to go to town and create a full on smokey evening look with the Lorac Pro Palette but I have been getting into building gorgeous day time looks with it. My favourite hues have got to be Champagne (paired with liquid liner), Lt. Bronze with Pewter in the crease for work, and a mish mash of Sable with either Garnet or Espresso for something a bit more striking and bold.

The packaging is pretty gorgeous too. The palette itself is really thin and light so it's perfect for travelling (or doing your makeup on the train as I do!). It's got an almost rubbery NARS-eque texture to it and it's pretty sleek.

It's pretty obvious that I think the Lorac Pro Palette is worth the hype, and I'm eagerly looking forward to visiting Ulta in October to see what other Lorac goodies are on offer.

Have you tried the Lorac Pro Palette? I'd love to know what you think of it too!
