LORAC has come out with a new palette: Pro 3! This has 16 eyeshadows, with the top row being matte and the bottom row all shimmer, just like they did with their last two Pro palettes. The shades are rosy-toned neutrals and when I first saw this palette, I got excited. Sadly, it did not meet my expectations based on the previous two Pro palettes LORAC has put out. I have been using this over the past week, and not only are the eyeshadows nowhere near as pigmented as past LORAC palettes, but the colors fade on the eyes throughout the day. SO disappointing, especially at this price point.
If you ever had the opportunity to try the IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty palette, the Pro3 reminds me a LOT of it. The eyeshadows are more powdery in this one and if you do want greater pigmentation, you have to apply the eyeshadows wet. Even with that method, the color in the pan doesn’t translate to the eyes for most of the shades. I wanted to love this so badly and if the shades looked on the eyes, as they do in the pan, I would have. I honestly prefer my Unzipped palette over this one, in terms of quality; and those are more of the rosy toned neutrals I prefer, not these.
