If you tried and loved the first LORAC Pro palette, it is almost guaranteed you will fall head over heels in love with the second one, too! With a mixture of warm and cool shades, this palette offers more colors than the first but still hosts the same layout with the top row being matte finishes and the bottom row the more shimmer-y shades. Pigmentation is superb with every single eyeshadow in this palette; they glide easily onto the eye and also make for beautiful blenders. The only eyeshadow you might find troublesome in this palette is the one called ‘Silver’ as it is packed with glitter and tends to fall out everywhere during application.
My most favorite eyeshadows in this palette are: Nectar, Mocha, Chrome and Jade. I feel like the most unique shades in this palette are Jade and Mocha, while the others could easily be duped with other brands.
The packaging is thin, sleek and easy to keep clean, making it ideal for travel. It does lack a good blending shade, however, for those of us who are very fair. The shade called ‘Buff’ isn’t that great of a blender unfortunately and is much too sheer for an even blend. Despite those minor flaws, it’s well worth looking into and will definitely give you a good range of looks.
Look #1 – see the video tutorial here!
- Jade (inner and outer third of lid)
- Rosé (middle of lid)
- Light Brown & Nectar (blended in the crease)
- MAC Blanc Type (blend)
All of the looks are beautiful- and that’s an understatement. I am so excited to use this palette. It is probably one of the best ones I have bought yet! Look number 1 is still my favorite… that was the one I mentioned in my last comment : ) Thanks again!
Thank you, Virginia! Enjoy! 🙂
Gorgeous looks! Darn! Just when I decided that I didn’t need this palette! Are there any Mac dupes in the palette?
These are all so gorgeous!! I cannot wait to try each one! 🙂 you’re amazing!! <3
Gorgeous! I can’t wait to try a few of these out!
Gorgeous! I especially love the placement of the colours in look no 1. It looks so elegant on you.
I used to always find that this type of look (with a darker colour in the inner and outer lid and a lighter colour on the middle lid) never used to suit me. I just couldn’t get it to blend nicely. I experimented and found that applying the crease colour down first really helps with the blending. So happy to have found a way to get this type of look to work on me :o) !
Whoo hoo! I often do the same application technique you mentioned too! Sometimes if you apply the crease color last, after the lid colors, you can end up blending them away as I’m sure you found out! LOL! That always made me so mad so I started doing it backwards. Ha! Thanks for sharing your experience, Saira! 😀
So excited, just returned from my 4th of July holiday and my Ulta shipment arrived with this palette…my first Lorac purchase! Can’t wait to try combos 1 ad 4!
Whooo hoooo! Enjoy, Peggy!!
Omg just did look #4, and these shadows are AMAZING! To coin a phrase from a retro TV commercial, “I can’t believe it’s not butter!” Lol! ;-D
LMAO! Awesome! Thank goodness it wasn’t “Where’s the beef?!” Haha! 😉
LOL that’s hilarious Zabrena! Oh and my day was additionally made by the sample of Benefit’s “They’re Real” eyeliner that I got from Sephora! I was hesitant to try, but when I got the VIB offer for the free 30 day sample I had nothing to lose! This truly is THE best eyeliner, it glides on smooth and didn’t “skip” or “jump” as other liners tend to do on my “mature eyes”. And best of all it helped me not mess up, both eyes were even (a shocker for me, let me tell ya)! So if you haven’t tried it yet, I’m giving it two big thumbs up in case you haven’t tried it just yet 😀
I’ve been anxiously awaiting this post. 🙂 So beautiful! I can’t wait to try them all, but I definitely paused on #4, so unique. Thank you for this! I definitely created a binder look book for some of my favorite palettes with your looks. Thank you for all the work you put into this site. It’s much appreciated.
This is the second palette that I purchased after watching your review. I have already tried two looks. My favorite is the look #1 with the Jade shadow – Love it! Thank you for your beautiful combinations!
So after talking to Lorac found out that Amazon carries these, I finally broke down and I was able to get my hands on one!!! Slightly cheaper than the other alternative I had (living in Canada). Just got it today and can’t wait to start playing with it! Thanks for these looks 🙂
If you could do a blog post or video duping the remaining colors, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you can do a fall inspired look with this palette on your YT channel would also be great…..Thanks!
I’m glad you are adding to this. I have been eyeing this pallet. I think it’s going to be the next one that I get.
Hi Zabrena! I adore these looks, already tried several of them out and loved the colour combinations!
I also loved how look no.1 appears on your beautiful eyes. I was wondering if I could personally pull it off having deep set eyes, maybe you happen to have any technique for that? I would be grateful if you could suggest something.)
Thank you for your inspiration!
These eyeshadow combos are everything! Thank you for posting this. I will definitely be using these combos for work!
Are there any dupes for this pallate? I might have to buy it for the brown eye tutorial you did it was gorgeous! !!!!!!!!!!! My favorite; -)
Yay – I finally got this last week! I was conflicted about whether to get the first one or the 2nd but as soon as I looked at them in-store (didn’t even need to swatch or do a close comparison), I knew that this was the one for me. I SO love it and I think it will become my travel palette because it’s got so many shadows and it also has some colour as well. I do like the KvD Shade+Light palette but I really miss having some shimmer in it; Monarch has shimmer but is totally neutral. Pro2 is the BEST of all worlds!
Do you happen to remember what falsies you’re wearing in look #14? I adore them! And more importantly, I adore you!!
Number 16 var hard to achieve! In the picture it didn’t look like a dark smokeyeye, but that is what it turned out to be. I did use light brown and cocoa instead of mocha, though, because I am not a big fan of using shimmery shades in the crease… Do you have any tips? Maybe I could just apply jade on the inner and outer part of the eye, and then skip cocoa somehow? I felt like a dark green shade like jade needed another dark shade to be blended properly. Thank you in advance 🙂
I was so disappointed in this palette and know I’m pretty much alone. It was stunning, but the colors would not blend for me. It’s as if I laid them down and they just stuck in place. I always prep with a primer and base color, but nope. Such a bummer, it was the prettiest looking palette I’ve purchased. Back to my Chocolate Bar!
