LORAC PRO palette + swatches!

Hiiiii everyone,

First of all, excuse me if you were expecting a post the last 2 weeks. Funny story! The day I was planning on writing a new post (actually this one) the charger of my macbook died and it took me one week until I got my new one delievered and then I didn't find any time the last 3-4 days on doing this post but today I'm pretty motivated and I took some time to finally get this done ^^

I wanted to show you my LORAC PRO eyeshadow palette and swatched it for you guys ;)

My wonderful friend Kelly send me this amazing palette from the USA, unfortunately the mirror was smashed when I opened the box but luckily all the colors were save.


The Lorac Pro palette has 16, yes SIXTEEN eyeshadows! Half of the shades (upper line) are matte and the other half  (lower line) are shimmery. It comes with a little Behind the Scenes Eye Primer tube. The eyeshadows have a very nice pigmentation and you can wear them wet or dry. The palette has soft and smooth textures, and the colors are quite neutral. ($42.00 for 16 x 0.02 oz.; 1 x 0.19 oz.) 

Descriebed by Lorac: "Go PRO with the LORAC PRO Palette! Created by celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw, this PRO artistry palette is packed with 8 Shimmer and 8 Matte Eye Shadows in all the shades you need to create the hottest looks straight from the Red Carpet. LORAC’S velvety-smooth shadows are infused with soothing botanicals and are ultra-pigmented to perform wet or dry so you can shade, shadow, line and define your eyes, just like a PRO."



White (= crisp, powdery texture, great as highlighter)
Cream (= pale beige)
Taupe (= warm toned, medium dark brown)
Light Pink (= well light pink lol, powder texture)
Mauve (= pink-plum, a bit powdery)
Sable (= dark taupe)
Espresso (= very dark brown)
Black (= medium dark black)

Nude (= shimmery pale beige, close to Champage)
Champagne (= rose tinted, close to Nude)
Gold (= rich metallic medium dark copper, not exactly gold)
Light Bronze (= warm toned peach)
Pewter (= medium dark shimmery brown)
Garnet (= redish-brown copper)
Deep Purple (= blackened warm purple)
Slate (= charcoal gray with flecks of teal micro-shimmer)

My favorite colors from this palette are Taupe, Light Pink, Mauve, Espresso, Champagne, Gold, Light Bronze, Garnet and Deep Purple. LOL I know that are half the colors but I would have also got it if it only contained those 8 ^^

The price is very raisonable for the 16 eyeshadows you get. I would say they are as equal as my Urban Decay shades. The case is so easy to carry and you can do almost any look you want. 8 shimmers and 8 Mattes is such a great idea. This is a great palette for the price and I am excited to try more looks and do some posts for you ;)


Nice to be back in the blogger world




  1. Love neutral eyeshadows :D

    This palette is so nice! A shame that it's not sold in Europe :/
    Anyway, please thank you instagram friend! I'm currently on the wishlist hunt for that Anastasia Palette she told me about. I'll try to get it from Cultbeauty next month or around April (specially because I have a free shipping coupon to spend :P )
