A Little Matte, A Little Shimmer, & Everything in Between

Lorac Pro Palette Review

So I recently purchased the Lorac Pro Palette! The palette comes with 16 different shadows – 8 matte, 8 shimmer. The Lorac Pro Palette costs $42. Unlike the Naked 3 Palette, it does not come with an eyeshadow brush but it does come with a small eye primer. I haven’t used the primer yet because I just bought this yesterday but I have heard really good things about it so I’m very excited! I was pretty torn about if I should spend the money on the Lorac Pro Palette because I just bought the Naked 3 Palette recently (not to mention the tons of other palettes I own) but I think I will be very happy with this purchase.

One of the most appealing things about the Lorac Pro Palette is the wide variety of colors. Whereas the Naked 3 has all rose gold-esque colors, the Lorac Palette has an extremely diverse array of shades. The colors vary from light pinks to bronze to dark browns/plum to black and gray (with a few other colors thrown in there). I also love that there is both matte and shimmer colors. It’s a great palette to create both day and night makeup looks. All of the colors are very pigmented and have great color payoff. (You’ll see this in the swatches below). The eyeshadows have a creamy and buttery type of feel which I love! A lot of times, eyeshadows that are extremely creamy lack color payoff but the Lorac Pro Palette definitely offers both. My only complaint as of now is that some of the matte shades are a bit chalky. The chalkiness leads to some fallout so I will definitely be patting my brush before applying the shadows.

Overall, I really like the Lorac Pro Palette. Even though it’s $42, I think it’s a great investment. The palette has so many different shades that you can create a ton of different eye shadow looks. This would be a great palette for someone who is new to using eyeshadow because it gives you a lot to experiment with. This palette would also be good for people with all different skin and eye colors. The eyeshadows would look good on anyone. I would definitely recommend this palette!
