As soon as I saw a post on Instagram about the LORAC Mega PRO Palette I knew I had to get my hands on this super palette along with a lot of other people.
I haven't really tried LORAC products and I always wanted to try the LORAC PRO Palettes 1 and 2 but never had a chance. I see a lot of makeup artists stock their kits with the palettes. I was about to purchase the originals until I found out this motherload was hitting for the fall season. It actually launched for their 2014 Royal Holiday Collection but looks like it won't even reach the holidays.
Because I am a typical makeup addict I stalked the LORAC website, Facebook and Instagram feeds to make sure I didn't miss out. Marked the date Tuesday Oct. 7th in my Filofax (thank goodness for my planner to remind me of all these makeup launches). Woke up at 6am PST to purchase the palette. Told my husband I forgot to send out a work email .. lied but whatever I needed the palette. So happy I did and got my hands on it.
The shadows overall are super pigmented! I felt every time I dipped my brush into the shadow I needed to tap my brush. Also I learned very early that you only need to tap your brush into shadow very lightly and it will pick up a lot of shadow. I wish there was a variety of colors though. There are a lot of light and mid tone shades all around the same color (check out the first half of the palette). With that said it's a good palette to create neutral natural looks and classic colored smokey eyes. If you are into color/brighter colors you may want to pass this up.
I knew I wanted to create a couple of tutorials featuring colors from this palette because it can get overwhelming with all the colors provided. First up is a soft smokey eye, hope you enjoy!
