Did you think this day would ever come? My quest for the Lorac Pro Palette finally came to an end when my friend Meghan from Meghanrosette surprised me with the cutest parcel of goodies! Included in the package was the palette I hunted for too many times to count…and I was ecstatic (see this Instagram for proof of that)! For some reason I couldn’t find this palette ANYWHERE and I looked for it every single time I went home to Canada/USA. Let’s not dwell on the past though! Here’s it is….You can probably see that I’ve already put this baby to good use-in fact I don’t think I’ve used any other eyeshadows since I got it! The outer packaging is slightly NARS-esque & you can see that there are plenty of beauty wounds (concealer spillage) on the outer packaging. It’s definitely not an easy one to keep clean, but I still love the look and feel of the packaging. Once you flip it open you’re faced with two rows of eyeshadows. The top row is completely matte and the bottom row has shimmery shades which makes it really easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.
You pretty much get it all in this palette. In the past few weeks of using it I often thought to myself “oh, but it doesn’t have a —— shade…” and then I would have to correct myself because it’s in there. I can’t think of a single shade that’s missing from this palette…? Maybe a grey-purple shade? The pigmentation of the shadows is perfection, they’re easy to use and smooth in texture.
The only surprise to me was that some of the shadows are very powdery and loose which causes quite a bit of fallout in the palette itself. Once the colour is on the brush I don’t have an issue with fallout at all, but it’s almost like a lot of the shadows are loosely pressed pigments. Has anyone else found that? It doesn’t bother me, but I thought it was wroth mentioning.
My overall thoughts? This palette is frickin’ fantastic and I’m so happy I finally have it in my life! Thanks again to Meghan for making my makeup dream come true!
