Thoughts: These are my very first Lorac products and I was extremely excited to try them out! The main reason I bought this kit is for the eyeshadow palette. I know I would love them since it's my typical colors I tend to grab for.
Here's how the eyeshadow palette looks when it's open. Some people might find the packaging bulky, but I actually don't mind. It's also very sturdy.
Here's a closer look at the eyeshadows. They're very packed and you will hardly get any loose powders.
Here's a swatch of the eyeshadows taken outside in the sun. They're shimmery and lighter than they're really are with the naked eyes.
Here's a look I did with the eyeshadow palette.
I used all three colors and be careful with the dark brown. It's extremely pigmented!
Here's how the makeup look when the eyes are open.
Here's the overall look on me.
Now for my overall opinion... The eyeshadow palette is extremely pigmented and shimmery. If you don't like shimmery eyeshadows, this isn't for you. I personally like shimmery eyeshadows because I make my eyes the main focus of my face. Other than the pigmentation, the palette is extremely compacted. You will hardly see any loose powders and I think this will make a great travel-friendly product. I cannot 100% guarantee since I have not taken this travelling. Lastly, it lasted all day on me. Then again most eyeshadows last all day on me since I use an eye primer.
* Gorgeous neutral colors.
* Compacted; hardly any loose powders.
* Lasted all day on me.
* Cannot buy the eyeshadow palette alone; comes only in this set.
* Some people might find it bulky.
* Does not come with a sponge applicator.
Would repurchase: Yes.
