Rachel Zoe x Lorac Hollywood Glamour Mini Palette in Effortless Glamour is one of six new mini 6-pan eyeshadow palettes that launched in collaboration with fashion designer Rachel Zoe for the Holiday 2019 season. These are extremely affordable little eyeshadow palettes that are $15 each. Ulta got two of the palettes and the remaining four are available on Lorac’s website.
As you may know Lorac was sold to Markwins Beauty in 2018 which is also the parent company of Physicians Formula and Bonne Bell. I haven’t seen any bad reaction to the Markwins take over of Lorac. We didn’t get a Pro Palette this year but as they say the night is still young and that could be coming down the pipeline!
This palette is Made in China where as before many Lorac Palettes were Made in the USA. Markwins does appear on the PETA cruelty-free list but I didn’t notice a leaping bunny logo on the box. People do have concerns with makeup that is made in China regardless of the cruelty-free status. I personally have no issues with makeup Made in China and have used it from a variety of brands in the past without issue. However, one thing that is notable about anything Made in China is the quality can be considerably different compared to products made in the US or within Europe.
That being said, on with the review!
Rachel Zoe x Lorac Hollywood Glamour Mini Palette is pretty tiny. It’s just the size of a business card with a nice mirror inside and six eyeshadows that are 0.0425 oz for a total of 0.17 oz. It’s a really cute palette that will travel very easily with you or store away without taking a ton of space. I put it right next to the an Urban Decay Lipstick for size comparison. The eyeshadows are all named but they names are not printed anywhere on the palette but instead are on a clear film insert.
The palette contains five eyeshadows and one pressed glitter. There are no warnings about using the pressed glitter shade around your eyes or whether or not it is eye safe. It’s a chunky glitter suspended in a gel-like base making it easy to pat on however, I don’t recommend using it near your eyes due the the larger glitter chunks which can be a danger to your eyes. I would have appreciated some warnings about the pressed glitter but I searched both on the palette and on the box and saw no such warning. The gold is so pretty and goes so well with the other shades it’s a shame that I can’t use it but I’m a little scared to use it. Glitter Glue might be helpful if you do decide to risk it! I’m absolutely in love with this palette but I could have definitely done without the glitter!
These shadows are not quite like Lorac’s typically powdery, silky eyeshadows. They have firmer texture with a lot less powdery kick up but they still have a gorgeous buttery feel that apply and blend easily. I’d go so far as to call them creamy! There are two mattes here, one satiny metallic, one shimmer, and one satiny shimmer. There’s absolutely no fall out with the satins nor but I did experience a little fall out with one of my favorite shades in the palette which is Champagne. Oh my gosh I love this shade. It has a light almost creamy texture (it is a powder though)! You can apply it easily with a fingertip if you like! It creates a really ethereal glow on my lids and makes for a nice nude eye that you can accent with a darker shade at the outer v of the eye. I’m also a lover of the reddish brown shade called Amaranth! The golden brown hue of Chiffon is equally lovely.
I swear this palette was so made for me. I was very pleased with the texture, performance, pigment, and shade selection in this tiny little palette! It’s made me want to try the other five in the collection. Lorac, you nailed it with this little guy! I’ll be purchasing more of these for sure!
