It’s no secret that eyeshadow palettes in shades of nudes and neutrals dominate the beauty-blogiverse – you know which ones I’m talking about, right? I’m definitely on board that train, but it doesn’t mean that I stick with only those palettes. I’m currently a fangirl of Lorac and if you took a look in my kit, the brand rules in the eyeshadow department.
I carry both Lorac Pro Palette 1 and 2, plus Lorac Unzipped and Unzipped Gold. Most of the shades housed in all four palettes are universally wearable by most skintones, and the colour payoff and wear of the shadows are second to none.
Lorac shadows glide on smooth and evenly. I find that I get less shadow fallout with the shimmery shades meaning less clean-up around the eye area when I attempt anything smudgy or smokey, and most importantly less wasted product.
I often mix between both Pro Palette’s for any given look and use them for more glam, dramatic, or smokey styles. With the Unzipped Palettes, I save them more for when I want to do a glowing neutral face and eye to be paired with a bright or statement lip. The Unzipped Palettes do contain deeper shades (in the brown family, mainly), but I find the lighter shades, especially in the gold version, delightful.
Lorac can be found online at Sephora, and also in stores in the U.S. They can also be found at Ulta, another U.S. beauty store. This might be disappointing to us Canadian artists but the great news is, if you are in the GTA like us, Ulta did open up a location right across the Buffalo border by the Fashion Outlets. So if you want to play with the product, get dressed and dust off your passport!
