One of my favorite makeup lines is Lorac Cosmetics, founded by Carol Shaw. She regularly dolls up prominent celebrities for their red carpet looks — and even her first name (spelled backwards) provided the name of her company. Her company, like Urban Decay, is known for its stellar eyeshadow palettes. I even reviewed the Lorac “Pro to Go” Palette (a small version of its legendary “Pro” palette) here.
When I spotted an even more travel-friendly and downsized version of this palette (the “Pocket Pro Palette”) at my local ULTA, I knew it had to be mine! 😍
Notice the compact size of this palette:
It contains 3 basic neutral colors:
1) “Nude” — An icy champagne color, incredible as a brow bone or inner corner highlight!
2) “Pewter” — Shimmering cool-toned taupe. Great as a lid color or smoked out for a one-shadow look!
3) “Espresso” — Matte chocolate brown. A gorgeous shade for the outer V, crease, and even as an eyebrow color.
The texture of these shadows is buttery beyond belief! And feast your eyes upon their strong pigment:
I have created a sample eye look featuring this amazing palette!
For this look, I applied “Pewter” to the lid and into the crease. Then, I applied “Espresso” to the outer V and crease. I then highlighted the inner corner and brow bone with “Nude”. Lastly, I darkened my eyebrows with “Espresso”.
I can’t rave enough about this palette — and about Lorac eyeshadows in general. With their silky smooth texture and high pigment, they are even superior to Mac eyeshadows in my opinion! The small size of this palette also makes it ideal to pack in your bags for a long trip.
A total winner! 👍👍👍
Final Verdict: 5/5 Stars
