The LORAC Unzipped Palette is an utterly fabulous find for those who have been longing for a neutral palette with quality pigmentation.
There was not one eyeshadow within this palette that I found difficult to work with, didn’t show well on the lid or was packed so heavily with glitter I looked like a showgirl. LOL In all seriousness, this is everything I have ever wanted in a palette! The blending shade included (Undercover) works beautifully with every color in the palette, even the browns! That’s extremely rare to find!
Within the Unzipped palette, you’ll find 6 shimmer eyeshadows and 4 matte eyeshadows:
- Undercover = Matte
- Unbelievable = Shimmer
- Unattainable = Shimmer
- Unconditional = Matte
- Unbridled = Matte
- Undiscovered = Shimmer
- Unreal = Shimmer
- Uncensored = Shimmer
- Unspoken = Matte
- Untamed = Shimmer
Compared to eyeshadows within my present collection and out of all the eyeshadows within this palette, my most favorites are Unconditional and Untamed. I feel these two are the most unique out of the entire palette. Unconditional is best described as an even MORE buttery version of MAC’s Haux, but with more pink tones to it. Untamed reminds me of what you might get if you were to mix MAC’s Carbonized with Glamour Check!; it has a brown, red-purple mixture that is jaw dropping. With the exception of those two and possibly Unbridled, the remaining eyeshadows are easily dupeable with shades from Urban Decay and MAC.

- Unreal and Unbelievable (layered over one another on the inner half of lid)
- Untamed and Unbridled (layered over one another on the outer half of lid)
- Uncensored (crease)
- MAC Blanc Type (blend) – could also use Undercover here
Beautiful-no 4 is also my favorite! You know me-I like the darker shades 🙂
Haha! They’re the best!
Were you able to dupe the other shades yet?
Not yet! 😉 I’ll probably do a separate post soon, though! 😀
This looks tempting but I think I’m going to wait on it til I’ve been able to check out the 2 LE palettes I’m so eager to have. If the Dior one (Bonne Etoile) turns out to be a dud (fat chance!), I may spring for this Lorac palette though a lot of the shadows, as you say, are pretty dupe-able. I don’t own a single thing from Lorac so this might end up being my first purchase.
Ouuu! Great one for a first purchase with LORAC if you do choose to go for it!
I have eyed Dior before but can bring myself to commit. LOL! How would you describe their eyeshadows?
I haven’t purchased a Dior shadow in years but I think their 5-pans are sort of like Chanel’s quads – can be great or can be not so great and they’re awfully pricey. But the Bonne Etoile one got a great review at Temptalia and the colours look so absolutely desirable. But I’ll have to see what it’s like when it finally arrives in-store (I’m still waiting!)
Gorgeous babe! My only problem is it looks a little warm toned. I’m a wrong?
LOL! Am I wrong? That’s what I meant.
Yes, in my opinion this one is more warm-toned than cool-toned.
I meant to mention that in my review and forgot LOL whoops!
I have been looking at this palette for a while. I think it just tipped into the must have list, lol!
Haha! It’s a great one! 😉
Thank you for this post Zabrena! I have had this palette for about 4 months and have been waiting for your looks to be posted. Can’t wait to see what other ideas you come up with. These posted are certainly inspiring! : )
You’re most welcome!
Yes! Combo posts on this site is never complete! More to come! 😉
I’m at a crossroads….I don’t own a Lorac palette and not sure which one to purchase …the unzipped or the pro palette? Help Z! They are both nice!
Hmm! I personally prefer the Unzipped myself out of the two but you would be able to get more looks out of the Pro palette because there’s a wider assortment of eyeshadows and finishes. Which post did you like the combos better in? That might make it a little easier! 🙂
Thanks Z! I think I’m leaning towards the pro palette since it has more shades and matte options. All of your looks with both palettes give endless options it hard to decide! You truly are talented with those shadows and I’m finally courageous enough to try other colors I would not have before! Thanks again!
I’ve been debating over this palette or Stila In the light palette. I’m a nc35 in mac for reference. Which would you think would flatter my skin tone best? thx 🙂
How does Unzipped compare to UD Naked 3 palette? Please do a comparison when you get a chance… thank U v much!
Well, it’s not out yet silly! 😉 As soon as it comes out, I’m grabbing it though! And will be sure to mention in the review how it compares to the Unzipped palette for you. 😉 Thanks for asking!
You are right! Thank You v much for doing that for me!!! You rock, Zabrena!
Have you done a dupe list for this palette? Every time I go to buy it I feel like I have such similar shades that I cant justify it (oh, really…watch me)
But, really I have all three UD Naked palettes and I feel like they are so similar. Would consider looking into dupes?
I have to admit, I was unsure about this palette AT FIRST, but NOW…WOW! This is my go-to palette almost every day!The colors are soooo gorgeous and wearable, and it’s great when I am in a hurry (and feeling a little lazy hahaha). Love it!
It is a great one!! 😀
Finally found this orderable from Sweden!
Really creamy colors (me like:)). Favorite so far is Unbelievable and Untamed. Look gorgeous together.
Only negative is the naming of the shadows. Difficult to remember them.
Unreal – Naked Lunch
Unattainable – ATG
Unconditional – Haux
Unbridled – Embark
Will print out your looks above and use next week at work. Exciting!
Awesome, Lena! 🙂 Thanks for adding some dupes for the shades!
I just bought the Unzipped palette this weekend using my 20% off entire purchase at Ulta! I snagged a couple of their It Cosmetics Luxe brushes too! Anyway, I am brand new here (have watched you for ages, but just got a membership). I am so excited to see all of these looks and can’t wait to play with my new palette. PS..I bought it instead of Naked 3, how do you feel they compare?
Ouu! Great deal, Shanna! And welcome to you! Thank you so much for your longtime support! 🙂
Compared to Naked3, I’d say this palette is much easier for everyday wear and every eyeshadow in it has a dreamy formula. Whereas, some of the eyeshadows in Naked3 can be enough to drive you batty with fallout. LOL So you made an excellent choice!
Hi. I follow you on YouTube and decided to finally take the plunge here. So glad I did. I was wondering if you would be able to add looks for unzipped gold and mega pro 2 (ulta exclusive )
