“This is my favorite palette,” said the cashier at Ulta as I placed the Lorac Pro Palette on the counter, “Lorac makes the best eyeshadows!” With that kind of endorsement, I was excited to get this new palette home!
Going to Ulta is always a treat for me because there’s just not one near me. I go to Sephora all the time (4 conveniently located, 2 of which are walking distance!) but Lorac is only at Ulta. (Maybe it was Sephora back when I was in college? I’m not sure, but I remember owning a single vibrant Lorac shadow back then.) Lorac makes three beautiful Pro Palettes, all of which I want to own. I decided to start with the first mostly because it makes sense to start there, but also because of the shade “Garnet!”
Lorac Pro boasts 16 incredibly wearable shades, half of which are matte and half of which are shimmer. Though I always thought I preferred matte shades, I’ve come to really need a bit of shimmer to complete a look.
The matte colors across the top row are white, cream, taupe, light pink, mauve, sable, espresso, and black. The shimmer shades are the bottom row: nude, champagne, gold, light bronze, pewter, garnet, deep purple, and slate.
These shades combined are like the perfect library of neutrals with the power to make a very dramatic look as well! As you might have guessed it’s the garnet shade that really speaks to me. It was my inspiration to create this look!
I can’t wait to get my hands on the other Lorac palettes. Which is your favorite?
