The Lorac Pro Palette, what I thought was an urban beauty myth finally mine for the taking *holds palette up to the sky to angels singing*
I was lucky enough to get my hands on this beauty as a result of a good friend (BFF x1000) hunting it down in Florida. Knowing that this palette was only available in the US (and even then the chances of finding it were likened to discovering big foot!) I was sceptical that my request would be fulfilled. To my delight upon her return my dream had come true!
The Pro palette came packaged in a compact black box along with a good sample size primer at 5.5g
The palette itself contains 16 deliciously pigmented and buttery shadows, 8 matte (top row) and 8 shimmers (bottom row). The shadows are presented in black sleek packaging which is handily narrow and compact for travelling. One of the things I like most about the palette is the correlation between the matte and shimmer shades, for example for each matte shade there is a shimmer shade below it which compliments it beautifully. I find that this is particularly useful for those of us who are not au fait with applying eye shadow and need a quick shadow combo on a sleepy Monday morning. Handy pairings aside, all 16 shadows compliment each other extremely well and can be mix n’ matched for dozens of versatile day to evening looks.
Retailing at $42 (£26) the Lorac Pro palette is one of the best quality products I have come across. I am reaching for this palette on the daily over my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette- it just can’t compete on quality, pigment or blend ability! As you can tell I am head over heels in love with this palette! Well worth the trip to the US… Or a good will gesture from a good friend (BFF x 1000)
