For the eyes, I always prime my eyelids with Behind The Scenes Eye Primer but you use your Holy Grail or favorite eye primer of your choice. To create this sultry eye look I used the Lorac PRO Palette. 

Lorac pro

I start by using Nude from lash line to brow bone then with Garnet on the lid and outer corner. Next in order to define the eyes I then go with Black in the outer corner and on the crease. Smoothen the rough edges and blend it well.

For a more dramatic effect you can try the shadows wet. To line and define, use¬†a liquid liner¬†in¬†Black¬†along the top and bottom lash line. Finish with your favorite babydoll lashes or any falsies you feel comfortable on. But¬†in my case, I’m wearing the Elf Black Lashes¬†and curl it with a little mascara to stick my lashes to the falsies.

So, there you have it, my version of this inspired eye makeup which I believe you can create it too.

What would be your most loved inspired look you have created for fall? Don’t forget to leave your comments below.

It’s Nordstroms’s Exclusive¬†“The Resort” Eye and Cheek Palette by Lorac for $20.00 including¬†free shipping. What more can one¬†ask for? Except maybe for them to restock this palette at Nordstrom so that you and I are¬†able to grab, snag or haul it for vanity sake.

It contains:-

  1. Six eyeshadows
  2. One eye and cheek highlighter
  3. Two blushes
  4. One bronzer

all in one palette. It comes with a full size mirror and the design on the packaging is freaking inviting.

LORAC Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette|Review & Color Swatches

 

 

Today, I love to talk about this wonderful Lorac Unzipped Palette which have been streaming among many bloggers and youtubers alike raving about it. Just to put it out, Lorac is a brand that I truly enjoyed after my great experienced with Lorac Pro Palette.

This is not a new Lorac collection or release in case you wonder but it’s something I wanted to have. I love the beautiful neutral colors in this palette and it’s just so tempting.¬†The color pigmentation was¬†very strong and I would say comparable to MAC.¬†By the way, this palette also comes with a mini¬†eyeshadow primer. So remember to check it out. This Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette, I got it¬†for $40.00.

primer

Lorac Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette comes in 10 ultra rich, shimmering and matte shadow in a super sexy, nude palette. (Net wt: 030 oz)

Since I just received it, I’m on top of the world and so excited to share my thoughts and opinion. Unfortunately, as I opened the packaging, I noticed¬†one of the shadow¬†(Unbridled) broke during handling and¬†I was obviously heartbroken. So, I found a way to salvage it by keeping it¬†in a small jar and use it when I do a smokey eye. It works!

palette and primer

Included in this palette, you also get a Mini Behind the Scene Eye Primer sample with net wt: 0.19 oz.

Lorac unzipped

It comes in a nice packaging with gold trim zipper and LORAC icon on it. I love how the¬†packaging is, it’s¬†slim and sleek. The box material feels like a PU leather and I notice that it has a good size¬†mirror on the inside lid. I love this palette because the pan¬†is bigger than those of the same price range.

shadow palette

A shimmery and matte eyeshadow in the palette. The colors are absolutely gorgeous with the broken dark brown Unbridled shade which is unfortunate. I also realized that the Undercover is a little bit powdery but the rest have an awesome texture.  Other than that, overall, the pigment is rich and texture were incredibly soft and smooth. Very easy to layer and so easy to blend. This is a gorgeous nude palette for everyday wear.

swatch

Here are the color swatches on bare hands. I don’t do swatches on eye primer or eye base. Isn’t these colors gorgeous! The color payoff is awesome. A little goes a long way, babe!

Beautiful neutral, nude with amazing pigmentation. The Unbelievable and Unattainable has a more gold shimmery finish which are lovely to wear for night out for a more dramatic look. My favorite shades are the Uncensored and Unspoken.

Here are the pictures I wore using Lorac Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette. Natural and stunning look that last all day.

I’m in love with this look. It’s an everyday wear to work, grocery, transition color from summer to fall. It’s such a gorgeous palette with so much to offer. Hope you guys like and enjoy this review and the EOTD look.

Overall, I’ll continue using¬†this palette¬†until the next time to repurchase. I love the pigmentations and the quality is just awesome. I highly recommend you to try this palette because it’s AWESOME! You can get this at LORAC online. Don’t forget to also check on their new palette Lorac Unzipped Gold Eyeshadow Palette¬†while you’re there.

LORAC PRO Palette Review & Swatches

Yoo!Hooo!!! My wish for a Lorac Pro Palette eyeshadow comes through. I received a package in my mail today and I’m super excited to share my thoughts on. It’s on Lorac‘s online website¬†and it’s selling for $42.00 with net wt:¬†0.32 oz.

Lorac palette packaging lorac pro

This palette also comes with a Mini Behind the Scene Eye Primer. There are 16 eyeshadow colors in the palette ranging from light to darkest shades.

I did a swatch for the eye primer as well as the color swatches¬†for the eyeshadows. The eye primer is creamy and has rich coverage. I find that with this eye primer, the eyeshadows seems to hold up and blend even better. I honesty don’t usually apply eye primer¬†for my lids but with this cute little tube Lorac behind the scenes eye primer, I got to try it, right! Which I did! (giggle!!!)

light shades dark shades

The color swatches on these shadows doesn’t seems to appear very vibrant especially the light shades of white/cream/taupe/lt pink/ mauve on the top section and nude/champagne and lt bronze were pretty pale. The white/cream and pink looked very similar in pinkish tone while the nude/champage/taupe and mauve have quite the same similarity as well in terms of the peachy tones.

I really love the gold/pewter/garnet/deep purple and slate in the darker shades of shimmer and sable/expresso and black in matte finish.

palette colors colors of Lorac pro

They were all beautiful colors and I really love the rich pigments of these formula. As the weather turns colder, my makeup¬†choice seems to be leaning towards to a little bit of shimmery and glittery shadow palettes. Probably also because of the holiday seasons but for now I’ll be wearing more shimmer makeup look.

closed up shadow look finish lorac pro eyelook

For the price of $42.00 a palette for a high end eyeshadow, I believe it is reasonably price. It has beautiful 16 color shadows and they are all wearable. The light shades can be wore for daytime and the more shimmer ones for a night out. The quality of this product is amazing and it’s very easy to carry since it’s very light and a nice size mirror for me to check my beautiful eyes when needed.

The eyeshadow look – I used the sample Lorac Pro eye primer which was included in the packaging. The color shades I used for this look were the Garnet for the lids, Deed Purple for the crease and Lt Bronze as highlighter. Finished it with my Prestige waterproof eyeliner in Granite. I didn’t wear the mascara yet for this look because I wanted to focus on the eyeshadows more. Lovely, isn’t it!!!

Which color shades do you like best from this shadow palette?

Thank you for taking the time to read.
