Review: Lorac Pro Palette

Friday, 10 October 2014
This one really is a cult favourite despite the fact it can be a little difficult to get hold of in Australia for a decent price and from a reliable retailer. Be careful guys, there is a lot of fake Lorac palettes out there unfortunately. I ordered mine from Amazon recently and I want to post a bit of a review as well as where Aussies can get it and how much it will set you back.

I am a bit of self confessed palette addict. I have two Naked palettes not to mention others from Inglot, Lancome, Estee Lauder. Yeah, I probably have a problem. Considering all of them, I would say for value for money and best colour choices in a palette you cannot go past the Lorac Pro! While I would say I probably love my new Inglot one best because I chose all the colours myself, it did cost $120, which is totally worth it because the colours are gorgeous and the pans are HUGE but it is still more than double what I paid for my Lorac Palette.

I ordered mine from Amazon and it worked out to $47.89 AUD with postage (the palette is $42.00 USD). While this price does fluctuate a little bit with exchange rates it is usually just under the $50 mark and I would say that it is definitely worth the price. I would definitely tell you to buy from Amazon rather than Ebay because there are a lot of fake Lorac palettes out there. You get 16 beautiful shades, 8 mattes and 8 shimmers which really offer a great spread of neutrals and more intense jewel colours. All of them are very pigmented and high quality. Instead of rambling too much I will let the swatches speak for themselves.

Top Row Mattes (left to right)

  • White - fairly self explanatory. It can be quite stark but it is a good colour to have in your collection.
  • Cream - bright cream that is great for highlighting when you don't want shimmer or stark white.
  • Taupe - this is a great contour colour for the socket. I also often use this as an all over shade.
  • Light Pink - another beautiful one and it is a very light and wearable colour.
  • Mauve - one of my favourite mattes, this is a great base colour too. I love to wear it with the light bronze or pewter shades.
  • Sable - this is a very reddish, warm brown which admittedly does't work so well on my pale, pink toned skin but would be another great contour colour for warmer complexions
  • Espresso - great for an outer corner shade and it is just so pigmented. I also love smudging this one in to my upper and lower lash line for definition. I can also use this colour as a brow powder in a pinch which makes it a good multi use palette for travelling.
  • Black - very self explanatory but the pigmentation is great. This is a light swatch
Bottom Row Shimmers (left to right)
  • Nude - light peachy pink
  • Champagne - refer to name
  • Gold - true bold and intense gold
  • Light Bronze - light champagne bronze
  • Pewter - dark taupe brown
  • Garnet - reddish brown 
  • Deep Purple- this one does look much more grey and it is the only one that looks a little bit different from the pan. The purple is somewhat visible in bright natural light
  • Slate - darker gunmetal grey
Basically the range and quality of these colours is amazing and you really can't go wrong with it. I like that it also has a good range of warm and cool tones and an equal distribution of mattes and shimmers. The shadows for this palette really are exceptionally well chosen. Each pan is rather small and the whole palette contains 8.8 grams so if you have a firm favourite you use everyday I could imagine you might use it up fairly fast. In saying that though, they are all so beautiful you could really use these equally as you go and just replace the whole palette. Out of all my Urban Decay, Inglot, Lancome and Estee Lauder this is the one I would recommend if you were only buying one. In saying that though, my new Inglot that I review yesterday is my current favourite though it did of course cost more than double the Lorac palette.

As you can tell, I really love my Lorac Pro palette. Have you been eyeing this off for ages like I did. Might you place a little Amazon order now? Let me know in the comments.

Stay Rosy.

  1. I'm loving my Lorac Pro too, and I totally agree about the shade Mauve - such a good shade and works so well with Light Bronze and Pewter! :)
