Greetings All! I am back from outer space! more details to come as I recover from a massive jetlag 🙂 Anyhow, today, I’d like to talk about this amazing eyeshadow palette that I took with me on a short notice trip to Mars. I bet y’all know what is, it’s the Lorac Pro Palette. I know a lot of you swear by this, even more so than Urban Decay’s Naked Palettes. Well, I’ll give you my 2 cent comparison later in this review, but for now, lemme tell you how I dig this eyeshadow palette sooo darn much.
First of all, I am in love with the color selection of this palette. They all seemed very versatile and very wearable. I also like that this has the most matte textures of eyeshadows in a palette. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do love shimmers, but there’s a point where I feel like I need to be able to adjust my eye makeup game from day to night or from natural to all glammed up. Second, the pigments baby. The pigments of this palette is to die for. I love how one swipe can make all the difference and each shade is oh so buildable. I can definitely create a natural daytime look with this like a pro, and then transition to a more dramatic look at night.
Even though this palette has a lot of matte shades, there’s also 8 shimmery shades that complement each matte eyeshadows. They are not overly glittery and the shades are just about as natural as the mattes. There are 16 shades in total for this particular palette.
Aside from the gorgeous array of colors to choose from and the incredible pigmentation of this Lorac Pro Palette, the last thing I really love about this is the ease of application. Each shadow goes on smoothly like a velvet, and on top of that, they are extremely long lasting. They never smudged on me all throughout the day. I also noticed that my best eye makeup happens whenever I use this specific palette. Oh yeah, you bet! 🙂
Comparison to Urban Decay Naked Palettes: A lot of people raved the Lorac Pro Palette for being well-pigmented that they almost find it to be similar to Nars Eyeshadows which are also known to possess such strong pigments for its eye makeup. Well, for me, that is definitely true, and I really really like my eyeshadows to be strongly pigmented as well. That also explains my liking for Nars eyeshades. However, when it comes to comparing this Lorac Pro Palette to the popular Urban Decay Naked Palettes (1,2,3 & Smoky), to be honest, I was a bit surprised that I actually enjoy using this Lorac Pro more than the UD Naked Palettes. Something about UD’s pigmentations that didn’t seem to materialize well on my skin. They also feel a bit drying and slightly harder to blend than the Lorac Pro Palette, which can be applied wet or dry. Also, there’s not a lot of matte shades in the Naked Palettes, yet each of their palette always comes with a nice eyeshadow brush.
So, have you tried each of the eyeshadow palettes mentioned above? Which ones suit your fancy?
Stay tune for more reviews and photos from my latest jet lag-enducing trip and adventure. LOL.
