Happy Friday everyone! This week I received the long anticipated second installment of Lorac’s Pro Palettes. The original Pro Palette is hands down my favorite palette that I own, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this guy! The main different between Pro 1 and Pro 2 is that Pro 2 features cool-toned shades, as opposed to the Pro 1 being full of warm-tones. The packaging is identical to the 1st, with exception to the color being a cool gray. Like the original, it contains a full row of mattes and a full row of shimmers for a total of 16 shadows. The shadows themselves are exactly what we’ve come to expect from Lorac. They are extremely pigmented, buttery smooth on application, and easy to blend. Their quality rivals that of the first Pro palette. Like the first, it also includes a matte black. The variety of colors is also phenomenal. You can go for a more neutral and natural look, or really bump it up with a dark smokey eye. The possibilities are really endless! One color in particular that stood out to me is Nectar. It’s a peachy-pink matte and it’s such an original color! I don’t have anything like it in my collection and it would be perfect in the crease to add some warmth as opposed to using the typical light brown shade. One thing I wish this palette had was a dark matte brown to deepen up looks since the only dark matte that’s not colorful is just plain black.
Bottom line, I absolutely love this palette. The quality, colors, and variety are so good! It’s the perfect palette for traveling or simply everyday use! It’s definitely one to check out if you’re in the market for great quality shadows with a lot of variety.
The Lorac Pro 2 retails for $42 and is available now at Ulta.com and will be available in Ulta stores on 6/29.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
