Love that it has both matte and shimmer colors in similar shades. Makes it a very versatile palette to have. Wish the shadows were a little bigger, but they are super pigmented, so you don't have to use a lot. The eye primer is pretty great, too.
this palette is my most reached for palette it has 8 shimmer 8 matte and I love them all a very sleek palette doesn't take up much room the only downfall to it is the palette cover gets dirty easily it is similar to the nars material!! I use the color mauve for my crease all the time
HG eyeshadow palette! By far my go to and most used!
For xmas 2013 there were soo many awesome kits and palettes floating around- so hard to choose. I was stuck between the Carried Away set by Tarte and Too Faced's Shadow Bon Bons. But the Lorac Pro was a constant want, and seeing as how I don't have the Nakeds 1 and 2 or the Naked Basics, I figured this would be a good nude palette dupe. Its more than that and I couldn't be happier with it!
Pros: Cheaper than the Nakeds, has luxue, creamy shadows and silky mattes, sleek, lightweight package with magnetic enclosure, easy to store and flip up and use, has everything you need! You get jewel toned smokey shades, and a ton of neutrals. I love the mattes on the top and use those the most. White, Cream and Light Pink make great lid and highlight colors, as do the shimmers Nude and Champagne on the bottom row. I love the uniqueness of Mauve and its versatility- smokey eye blend out/crease. Taupe is a great smokey eye blender shade and I use Taupe at the brow base with Sable in the middle and Espresso at the tail. Ta Da! Perfect brows! Espresso is great for a brown liner and Black is a perfect smokey eye base or liner. Sable is wonderful for soft smokey eyes. Lt. Bronze is a great lid color, Gold is great on the lower lash line, Pewter doubles as a smokey eye/crease/lid color and is super unique, and as is Garnet, which is also versatile. (Can go with Pewter or darker with Deep Purple and Slate). Deep Purple and Slate round out the palette, making it a smokey eye, as well as neutrals eye palette! Its perfect for travel, has a pretty good mirror and its been my most used palette. I just find myself compelled to play with it more and more and its so easy to pop on some shadow in the morning and it will look fool-proof. The top row of mattes look excellent with black winged liner- so you have your pin-up looks right there. Most used shades: Cream and Taupe. Most unique: Mauve, Pewter and Garnet.
Cons: There are hardly any, but I will mention that the package gets easily scuffed, even with gentle handling, so it will not remain matte black like it comes in the mail. Also, Mauve for instance is a little stiffer to work with, so if your brush is at all a little damp it will be hard to blend this shade out- or even when your brush is dry- so just take your time a little with Mauve- but the extra second or two is worth it as looks just gorgeous in the crease with some browns, or as a transition blending color. Its really a stand out shade in the palette, and I feel like a lot of palettes include shimmery roses but NOT matte mauves. All in all, love these buttery shadows- with their ease of use, and range of looks. LORAC makes insanely good shadows and this palette deserves all the hype it gets!
I love this palette! It's my baby! The colors are sooo soo pigmented and creamy. I love how there's matte on the top row and shimmer on the bottom. The primer works just as good as the palette. It says on longer tho when you do use the primer. I totally recommend this palette for every girl that has an interest in makeup. It's good for smokey, natural and there's purple, blue, gold, red and pink if you want that pop of color.
One of the THE best palettes I own. Super pigmented colors go on really nicely and stay on all day. The Lorac line is really one of my favorite make up lines by far!
I was on the fence so long about buying this palette. When I first heard about it - I was intrigued but still wasn't sure. I carry my Naked 1 with me everywhere and just didn't think anything would come better. Well, I was totally wrong. This palette has every single shade you could use for any type of eye look - smokey, neutral, pop of color - you name it - you can most likely create it. It was the best money I spent and I am so happy. The shades are so pigmented and buttery. I have been using it to create looks every single day since I got it and haven't been able to put it down. :) My one con is that the palette can offer some fall out - but if careful, it shouldn't be a problem. Lorac - you have always stole my heart, but this time, you took that and held on tight :)
LOVE, My go to pallet!
I have had this for about 5 to 6 months & I have used this everyday since! I have hit pan on only one color so far, the white color (its great for highlighting your brows!
Great for travel..it has all the colors you need to create all the different looks you can think of; smokey eyes, neutral looks, golden special events.
This is a staple you need in your colletion!
Cant wait to try more Lorac products :)
I think I am in love. This Palette includes 8 shimmers, and 8 mattes. My favorites are champagne, pewter, mauve, and cream. I like this a little more than the Naked Palette. The packaging is very sleek; sort of like how Nars products are packaged. SO glad I decided to get this Palette instead of the Naked 2 palette. I feel like Mauve is the perfect pink/light brown shade that really completes the matte selection, and cream is close to my skin tone, so I can use it is a highlight. LOVE!!!
My favorite palette!
I'm obsessed with this palette for so many reasons! The packaging is nice. There is a magnetic closure and I've never had an issue with the palette opening in my makeup bag. I've also dropped it a few times (oops) and none of the shadows even chipped. There is also a large mirror, which I use as my main mirror when traveling. It's handy!
The eye shadows themselves are great. Half are matte, half are shimmer. I prefer this combination of textures over either Naked palette, where you're getting mostly shimmer. I feel this combination allows for more looks. It's definitely a versatile palette. The quality is also great.
The matte shades are all wonderful. None of them are chalky. All are nice and velvety, with little to no fallout. They are VERY pigmented, though. So a little goes a long way. The shimmer shades are also fun. All of them are great quality, with the exception of Champagne. I had high hopes for this one because the color is so beautiful. However, it seems to be a different formula than the rest. Rather than rich, satiny shimmer, it's more of a cheap, glittery shadow. I swatched it on my hand and immediately there was glitter all over. I tried it on the eyes and had glitter all over my cheeks within minutes. Other than that one shade, the rest are amazing. The other shimmers are very much a satin finish, no glitter at all. Pigmentation is out of this world. Love, love, love them.
All in all, it's a great palette. You have a little of everything in it. You can do anything with it, from super natural, to smokey, to a fun night out look. I would definitely recommend it over the Naked palettes any day!
Love it !!
Great palette! Love this one so much more than the Naked palette, I'm into more of the matte color choice and less shimmer. But you get the best of both worlds with this one. The colors are richer than the Naked palatte, and the price is cheaper. This has been my go to palette lately.
