My Holy Grail Eyeshadow Palette


You ever come across that one makeup item that makes you think to yourself - If this is the only (insert makeup item here) I could use for the rest of my life I would be perfectly happy with that? Well that's how I feel about the Lorac Pro palette! 


When I first saw it on YouTube I thought to myself "eh another neutral palette" & then I saw it in person and still didn't think it was that special. Finally when I went to Ulta and swatched some of these colors I was sold!! There are 16 colors in this palette and 8 of them are matte and 8 are shimmer. Don't be scared of the matte!! They are not chalky and they apply beautifully. 
 

I love how every color seems to go perfectly with one another. 
 (Top row matte colors: White, Cream, Taupe, Light Pink, Mauve, Sable, Espresso, Black; Bottom row: Nude (Shimmer), Champagne (Sparkle), Gold (Shimmer), Lt. Bronze (Shimmer), Pewter (Shimmer), Garnet (Shimmer), Deep Purple (Shimmer), Slate (Shimmer))
This palette is also half the thickness of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, which makes this great for travel!

I will say that these eyeshadows are soft so I do suggest applying your eye makeup first, but this palette is worth changing up your routine for! Honestly I like this more than either of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, and I LOVE Urban Decay eyeshadows.

I highly suggest buying this palette!!

Caution: Your other eyeshadows WILL feel neglected once you add this to your collection since you won't be able to stop using it.
