Lorac Pro Palette

I am a sucker for a good eyeshadow palette and have been wanting to try Lorac's Pro Palette for a long time. Lorac is an American brand and I wanted to buy this when I was in America last year, but as Lorac is no longer sold in Sephora, I couldn't find it anywhere. 

A couple of months ago I thought I would try searching eBay and found loads of these palettes being sold for really reasonable prices. I paid £24.00 for mine from an English seller, so if you too are looking for the Pro Palette I recommend trying eBay.

The Pro Palette consists of 16 eyeshadows, the top row are all matte colours and the bottom row are all shimmers. I love that this is a really versatile palette and you can create loads of different but more importantly, wearable looks with it.

The quality of all the shadows is really good, they are all highly pigmented and blend easily. 
Apart from maybe Slate, there isn't a single colour I wouldn't use in here and that's what really appealed to me. I hate eyeshadow palettes where there are 4 or 5 eyeshadows you wont use.

I thought I would show you three different looks with this palette, so you can see how versatile it really is.

Look One

For the first look I used LT. Bronze all over the lid with Taupe in the crease. This is the kind of eyeshadow look I would wear everyday, as its simple but brightens your eyes and makes you look more awake.

Look Two

For my second look I went for all matte shades and used Mauve all over my lid and underneath my lower lash line, with a bit of Espresso blended out in the outer corners for depth. Mauve is a beautiful murky purple colour, which I know would look great with By Terry's Misty Rock.

Look Three

For my last look there was one colour that I just had to use. Garnet is a metallic red bronze colour and it was the only shade I used for my final look, blended all over my lid and quite far underneath my lower lash line. This is definitely an Olsen twin colour and if you have blue or green eyes this will look amazing.

If you got this far I thought I might as well show you whats on the rest of my face as well!

A combination of a new amazing brush find from NARS (Ita) and the fact that the new Maleficent film is out soon, has led to me falling back in love with contouring. I think I'm going to do a whole separate post on this next week!

Oh and lastly how could I forget lipsticks!

Look One - Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick in Nude Rose (a new favourite!)

Look Two - Burberry Lip Cover in English Rose (an old favourite!)

Look Three - L'oreal GlamShine Stain Splash in Lolita
