Lorac Pro Palette Review & Swatches

Lorac Pro Palette 1

Oh well hello Lorac Pro Palette wanna be my new best friend forever? The new Lorac Pro Palette ($42) is newly launched for Fall 2012 and includes sixteen fabulous shades of eyeshadow as well as a Mini Behind the Scenes Eye Shadow Primer.

I feel like it’s Christmas! What a surprise for Fall to get such a wide range of eyeshadows in a single compact.

Of course, I instantly had a makeup boner (am I allowed to say that on here?) when I saw it pop up on Sephora. Lorac has a fairly great track record and releases high quality palettes again and again and again. I also feel like they offer enough variety in these palettes that they are worth picking up without worrying about dupes in past palettes you own or have tried from the brand in the past.

Let’s take a look!

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quads are a new range of shadow palettes from the brand available in four shades. At a glance these were an exciting launch as they looked like something you’d seeing coming out of Asia.

The palettes are portrayed as a shimmery shade selection in promo images that offer a luminous finish to eyes. I think Maybelline successfully captured “luminous” here but the formula might not be everyone’s bag.

Take a look!

Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette In the Heat Review & Swatches

Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette In the Heat 41

Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette possibly single handedly changed my mind about Sephora make up. This was such a great palette full of lovely natural, nude shades of color.

I’m typically not a fan of Sephora’s house brand but truly the Moonshadow Palette is a mind changing experience particularly if you love baked shadow formulas.

For Summer 2012 Sephora has released a new color variation of the palette entitled In the Heat which I quickly snapped up.

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection Review & Swatches

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection 22

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection is making its debut today on my face. It’s super hot today, first real hot day we got in New York, so a bronze-y look seemed the order of business when I woke up this morning.

I feel Lorac is terribly overlooked sometimes because they seriously make some of the best eye shadows ever and have such great, inexpensive sets during seasonal releases. Their Summer 2012 Collection is sizzling and their new Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Set is a mere $39 taking care of lips, eyes, face, and accessorizes you with a nifty bag too.

Take a look!

MAC Beth Ditto Powder to the People Review & Swatches

MAC Beth Ditto Powder to the People 4

I dunno about you but I definitely have a certain affection for pretty powders. But I have grown up a little and my makeup life has matured to a point where I’ll analyze said pretty powder and ask myself a few questions prior to a purchase.

  • Do I really need this powder?
  • Am I just buying it because it’s pretty?
  • Will I actually use it or will it sit in my stash unused merely brought out on special occasions to stare at?

Somethings you have to be a little grown up about these things but sadly, this technique doesn’t always work and I become overwhelmed by cute powders like the new MAC Beth Ditto Powder to the People, polka dots, ahhhhh!

Sometimes it’s tough resisting but in this case, you probably won’t need to dish out $38.
