Lorac was founded by a beauty legend and pro makeup artist Carol Shaw and it is now part of the Markwins Beauty Brands portfolio. Lorac has relaunched their popular pro palettes with a new formula and reusable packaging.
The new mattes are silkier and blend out much easier than the old ones did. I also love that they can be built up a bit if you want a more intense colour. The shimmers are still soft and easy to work with, they don’t have that powdery feel that can sometimes make drugstore metallics difficult to use and they don’t flake or fall off easily.
I love that this is an all-in-one palette with a great selection of warm and cool toned neutrals. There is also a good amount of dark colours for smokey eyes and even a black for deepening up your outer corner. The only shade that could be improved on is the brown shade Espresso, it can be a bit patchy and blotchy if you apply it too heavy so I usually wear it with another eyeshadow to make sure my lid looks smooth.
The packaging is beautiful, it’s a sleek palette plastic with a traditional MUR glossy black bottom and hinges to open. It has a large mirror in it and comes with a dual sided brush which is nice. I also like that the pans are magnetic and can be refilled. This makes it so easy to switch out the shades you like depending on your mood or if you want a particular type of look.
