Hey Pursebuzzers :) Today’s review features the Lorac Mega Pro Palette. IMG_0884Yay! Look at what FINALLY came in the mail! Feels like I waited forever for this palette’s arrival.
I purchased this palette through Amazon. This palette released on October 7th, may still be available.
Lorac has been teasing us with a limited edition palette since September! Sadly, it is limited edition.
Keep reading to see if this is a palette you’d like to purchase for yourself or as a gift.

IMG_0890As always, the packaging is quite similar to all other Lorac products/palettes.
It’s your typical white & black box– as for the palette, it’s a beautiful burgundy with gold writing.
This palette pretty much screams holiday! The palette is sturdy & thin.
This palette incorporates shimmer and matte eye shadows.

IMG_0896I’m so pretty, right? I’m seriously in love with the way this palette looks.
Just wait for the swatches… :)

IMG_0891Alrighty, so this is our first look at the lovely palette. This palette has 32 shadows.
The first 2 rows are matte shadows. The last 2 rows are shimmer shadows.
So to break that down, 16 matte shadows and 16 shimmer shadows.

IMG_0903I love the formula for Lorac shadows. The formula blows me away with every swatch.
This palette is so wearable– perfect for everyday wear and nighttime, special outings, etc.
If you’re a make-up artist, I think you should pick this up.
I love the original Lorac 1 palette. I have yet to pick up Lorac 2, hopefully it’s just as great!
Are you ready for swatches? Keep scrolling!!

*From my first impressions of this palette, I fell in love. The above swatches were WITHOUT the use of a primer. I’m sure these shadows will stand out and last even longer with the use of an eyeshadow primer. I love how this specific palette includes warm and cool tones. I love the beiges and browns– this palette is PERFECT for the holiday season and year round. In my opinion, all of them were pretty pigmented with the exception of “cream,” “lilac,” and “caviar.” These shadows are ultra soft, smooth and buttery. If brown and beiges are your thing, this palette is for you!! I have been rocking “sepia” in my crease and adding “sand” as my lid color with “opal” as a highlight. LOVE! Again, this palette has a lot of neutral tones that I know I will personally make use of.

If you would like to see some eye looks using these shadows, please let me know by leaving a comment below! I can make a separate post showing how I would use these colors on an every day basis and maybe a nighttime look! Leave a comment below & I’ll get to it.
