LORAC Pro Palette Photos, Swatches, & Review

I finally got my hands on this dreamy palette and couldn't wait to share about it!


   I was initially impressed by the selection of colors and the idea of having a row of matte and a row of shimmer/metallic. This palette is very no-fuss and straight to the point; just my style. The colors are densely pigmented yet blendable, and an excellent selection and variety.
   I would absolutely suggest this as a great base palette, whether you're new to makeup or just looking for a solid collection of neutrals that aren't too warm or too cool.
   The only thing I find a little odd is that there's only one silver shadow. When looking at a palette, I always try to identify the shades that can be used together and gradiented  for the best blending and transition, i.e., a cream shade, light brown, medium brown, dark brown, black. It could be paired with the shimmer cream shades, but there isn't a shimmer black to go with it. If you want to use it, you will have to account for that and have complementing shades on hand.
   I do like that there is more than one pink shade, which is unusual but clever. You can do so many looks with this palette--not just a brown smokey eye.

The palette version I got comes with a mini eye primer, which is excellent. I'm not positive if this is how every palette comes or if there's other versions, but the primer is definitely worth buying separate also.

(I also realized that in my photos I have the palette folded over, but the top flap has a mirror on the inside.)

My favorite shades are:

Nude for highlighting

Sable because it is very warm but not orange

Gold as a "pop of color" inner corner highlight or lid color
