Well, hello lover. This is probably one of the most hyped up holiday releases of the year. The Lorac Mega Pro palette has turned me into a modern day Veruca Salt. The moment I saw it, I feel in love and immediately wanted it then and there.
Unfortunately, each time I went to purchase it, it was completely sold out! So I scrawled the internet and ended up purchasing it off eBay, way above it's retail price. All I can say is it is totally worth it and worth the extra dollars I paid.
The palette consists of 32 beautiful shadows, 16 of which are matte and 16 which are shimmers/satins. If you love the original Lorac palettes, you will adore this one. I can't fault the eyeshadows at all, they are pigmented and long wearing. There is not an ounce of chalkiness, and I find even with the shimmers there is minimal to no fall out, which for a clumsy applier of beauty products is a mega plus.
The exciting thing about this palette is 28 of the colours are completely brand new. I love it when a make up company gives us something new and doesn't try to just repackage old colours. The 4 original colours are White, Cream, Espresso and Black which are the must have basics and I've almost hit pan on all of these in my original Lorac Pro palette.
Above are a few colours I've swatched. You can just tell , even with the gentlest swipe of colour on my fingertips how pigmented these shadow are. My favourite is Merlot, a winery/burgundy red which makes for an amazingly different smokey eye.
The only thing I will say that I won't like about the palette and all the Lorac palettes is it's very difficult to clean. The moment you get any eyeshadow on the packaging, it instantly looks like a hot mess. While I'm OCD about my make up packaging, it's something I can completely forgive because the eyeshadows are out of this world.
