These are such amazing shadows. The pigmentation is shocking and I love that they are Matte! I really have never found a matte shadow that is as beautiful as these. I own Posh & Social and need to pick up more. If you want to try out a Lorac shadow, go for these first you will not be disappointed. Posh is a beautiful brow bone color and I literally use it everyday in some shape or from!
Loving the matte
I'm really impressed with Lorac's baked mattes e/s, Very good for everyday, blends well, and is very well pigmented. I have not tried them wet yet, but I can imagine how much more pigmented they would be wet. I have the posh, chic, insider, and social. I got them for $2 bux a pop from hautelook, so I thought why not try them.. Best $8 I have spent, i find myself grabbing for them everyday, so they stay on my makeup table for easy reach :D
good eye shadow
I have 4 colors (swatches above);
Insider is dark blue a hint or teal to it
Drama is grayish blue
Posh is a light nude (a tad lighter than my skin color NC30)
Social is brown with red undertone
These baked matte satin eyeshadows looked matte in the pan and in natural lighting but in sunlight they show a little sheen.
I like all the colors, they just look complicated.
The texture is smooth, glide on easily. I like it a lot.
Smooth and even
The thing I dislike about a lot of matte shadows is that usually when I apply them they are not as even as I would like. This is not the case with Lorac's Baked Mattes! I haven't used this product wet yet, since I have it in white (Chic) but the pigmentation you get dry is still decent for the highlight. I haven't really used this up until recently since I usually use a satin high light but this has been great especially if i am looking for a bit of highlight on my face with no glitter or shimmer, it stays a light powder consistency and I have to say that I am truly impressed. I sort of brushed off Lorac in the past because I despised their lip glosses. That just goes to show that you can't judge a brand by one product!!
I have this in off-white (Posh) and it works really well as a base for my eye shaddow because it has no sparkle to it. I also use it as a powder highlighter for my cheekbones, along the bridge of my nose, and just under my eyebrows.
