That Eyeshadow Palette

You know which one I’m talking about. The Lorac Pro palette. It’s lusted after by all us Brits. Maybe because it’s so hard to get your hands on over here, maybe because it’s so damn beautiful and so unique. Maybe both.

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Garnet looks a lot shoddier than the rest. It arrived smashed and I had to fix it (my first time fixing broken makeup, so maybe it doesn’t look that bad now, eh?) and the people who I bought it from weren’t very keen to do anything about it. Don’t you just love bad customer service when you’ve paid about £50 for an eyeshadow palette.

Anyway, I digress, after the meltdown of ‘oh my gosh it’s broken’ and I finally realised I had this palette in my hands I may have squealed a little bit. It’s bloody gorgeous and I’ll fight anyone who disagrees with me. The shades are all buttery, pigmented, and a dream to apply. Ironically, Garnet is my favourite shade, complimenting my green eyes beautifully. With a collection of mattes and shimmers there really is something in here for everyone, and for the first time in a long time I know I’ll use every shade. I’ve never actually seen a matte white in any palette before, but whoever thought of that deserves a promotion. I love to use it as a base to make the other shades pop a little more. Taupe is the perfect shade for the crease, while Champagne is perfect as an inner corner highlight. I don’t know about you but I think this palette is perfect, even if Garnet did come to me smashed and I couldn’t get that perfect untouched photo (beauty blogger problems at it’s finest). 

What do you think of the Lorac Pro palette? Do you think it’s beautiful like I do?
