Lorac Bejeweled Take 2 Eyeshadow Palette Trio for Holiday 2012

Lorac Bejeweled Take 2 Eyeshadow Palette Trio for Holiday 2012 ($35) are popping up at Ulta today.

Remember these?

Lorac originally introduced this trio for Holiday 2011, it looks slightly different color wise though.

Take a look!

This is last year’s set:

Above is this year’s set as see at

Looks like the shades are very dupeable but this year there’s a smoky blue palette variation.

It’s an exciting release if you didn’t indulge last year as it makes a great gift. You can split it up and gift to three different friends, nifty right? Plus the price is SO friendly as the compacts are gorgeous and the makeup inside is equally lovely.

I’m unsure if I need it since I already own last year’s but I love it regardless.

What do you think?

Did you haul last year’s?

Will you grab this year’s version?

Do share!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    These would make a great gift indeed. The shades aren’t unique but the packaging sure is.

  • Cindy

    I feel like I’ve already got colors very similar to these, but the packaging is so cute! I’m a sucker for bejeweled and fun packaging.

  • Suselew

    These are so obviously copy cats of Tom Ford’s quads with jewels on the covers, especially first and third. I’ve been lemming a couple of his quads but the prices are so high. Not a fan of cheesy packaging. It’s also harder to store when you have TOO much stuff!

    • the Muse

      actually they aren’t copies at all considering Lorac released them last year prior to Tom Ford releasing his version Suse. The ones in this post are from Holiday 2011. I didn’t find the packaging cheesy, seems quiet pretty too me 🙂 true on storage! phew I’m always looking for new ways to store!

  • Quinctia

    Lorac, why you gotta make such dupable shadows? *whines*

    I do like their formula, but their palettes all seem same-y to me.

  • Robin

    I’m new to LORAC and after reading your reviews, I picked up and love the Unzipped and Pro palettes. They are now myHG eyeshadows! Will look at these this weekend. Good price and I like the colors, except for the blue one. May use it as a liner

    • the Muse

      yay both excellent palettes robin and so happy you love them so much! ;-D the blue one def puts me off too! but you can always gift it for xmas? maybe a secret santa?! 🙂

  • Jen_m_sunshine

    Muse! Stop with the great palette postings!!! My husband is going to make me unsubscribe from your blog 🙂
    I ended up picking up the Mariposa palette and a Laura Mercier Twilight Grey eyeshadow from allcostmetics!!

    I am really liking this trio from Lorac….but didn’t pick up the Pro palette. Never really used Lorac so both are a good way for me to test out the brand. Which set do you think is better?

    Again – I DO NOT NEED anymore palettes BUT they are such good deals and OH SO PRETTY!!! Big hugs muse

    • the Muse

      lol jen! I’m so so sorry hehehe ;-D yayyyyyy nice hauling ;-D I’d go with pro, that’s really a great palette! This is a nice set as well but the pro really has some awesome shades ;-D hehe!

      Big squishy hugs back jen! <3! have fun shopping ;-D P.S. Wait for Sephora FF to buy the pro palette, 20% off w00t!

  • Jen_M_sunshine

Are you a fan of Laura mercier? Her two holiday palettes from last year are 50% on her website. Pretty good deals ….still pondering whether to snag one! Muse, you make my day! No one I know understands my obsession with all things cosmetic related! I think I need rehab, seriously.

    • the Muse

    • the Muse

      • Jen_m_sunshine

        Weekend was good – great fall weather. How about you?

        Muse, Here is a link to pict of UD smoked eyeliner set. Rumour has it that a UD vice palette coming out soon as well and next year a Naked Basics.

        BTW, am loving the mariposa palette! A gorgeous combo = YDK on lid with some infamous (bright pink) layered on top! I am having fun playing. THanks again for sharing that website!

  • CG

    I got last year’s and this year’s is different enough to warrant having both. Gorgeous combos- but keep in mind almost every single color is COOL TONED. Warm toned people won’t enjoy these.
