YAY or NAY?
Packaging on these palettes is just OK to me. It's obviously made from cardboard, nothing to fancy to make you feel like it's a higher end product. It does come with a mirror which is a plus! Another plus is that each Palette comes with a Sample (deluxe size) of their Eye Primer. I did test the primer out and I liked it a lot. Each Palette costs $42 each.
Lorac Pro Palette: (warm shades) 16 shades in all. Top row is Matte shades and bottom row are Shimmer shades.
- I love all the shades in this palette, you can mke so many looks with all the shades provided. They are so pigmented, a little goes a very long way. Lots of transition shades. This is an all over favorite already for me. I love warm eye shadows and I can tell come fall 2015 this palette will be working over-time. The colors are very blendable and easy to work with.
- My only complaint is the fall out, you really have to tap off your brush before applying any color otherwise you'll have it all over your face. So make sure to really tap off your brush before applying to the eye.
Otherwise this palette is an all around YAY for me!
Lorac Pro 2 Palette: (cool shades) 16 Shades in all. Top row is Matte shades and bottom row are Shimmer shades.
- I love the different shades in this palette, gives you some interesting shades to come up with looks to use them. The colors once again are very pigmented, easy to blend. Not as many options for transition shades but still workable. The palette is nice but I wouldn't reach for this very often. Its one of those palettes you know has a certain shade you want to use with other shadows you have. Not really a palette you can use to make a "one stop look". I did make a Navy Smokey eye using just the colors in this palette, (you can find that look under the MAKEUP LOOKS TAB) nothing fancy, just testing it out. I also had used the Jade color for a look on St. Pats Day, but like I said I used other brand eyeshadows to finish that look.
- This palette does have the same fall out so make sure to tap off brush before applying.
Overall I would say this palette is NAY for me. It's nice and the eyeshadows are great, but I like to buy palettes for "one stop looks" this didn't do it for me.
