The Lorac Mega Pro 4 Palette, My Thoughts + Giveaway!


The pro palettes from LORAC get a lot of discussion and I've seen them in favorites videos time and time again. When I swatched this one- the brand new at the time LORAC Mega Pro 4 on a trip to my favorite Ulta store in Florida, I was amazed but how pigmented and soft the shades were. Even though it was my birthday month at the time, I was torn on whether I really needed another eye shadow palette, especially at it's price point. So I walked out without it, unsure if I'd done the right thing. And then holiday season arrived and this went on sale in a big way and I just couldn't avoid it. It's pretty much been the only eyeshadow I've worn since it arrived as well, aside from the Morphe Jaclyn Hill Palette (review coming soon) which arrived shortly after. I used it in Mondays tutorial video if you'd like to get a closer look at the shades and see exactly how they apply. Also, read until the end of the post for the giveaway details!

The first thing I noticed with this one was the packaging for some reason. I think that reason is the pink color with silver and gold writing. Although I am a big believer in mixing metals, I don't know how I feel about it packaging wise, it looks a bit messy to me. The actual palette is large but very thin and easy to store and the massive full sized mirror is something I very much adore! Did I just rhyme in a beauty review post? Wow, just wow!

Ok, time to talk about the actual shadows. There are 32 shades in total. The top two rows are matte and the bottom two rows are shimmer which gives a perfect variety of texture to play with and create different looks. The color choices are genius too, you've got a little bit of everything from pastel pinks and soft a mint green to deep navys, turquoise and duo chrome purple. I'd have to say my favorite one is called Spice, it's the most beautiful brown-red, and if you know me at all, you know it'll get a ton of use! Here is the main downside to this palette if you are looking for one at all, and no I'm not talking about price because you will find it on sale from time to time. The main downer for me is that the shadows are so soft that they are just a tiny tad too soft which means they end up everywhere. Soft powdery specks land all over the palette, a bit of fall down will occur on your face too if you aren't very careful to tap off before applying. You can literally see the powder dust kicking off as you blend them back and forth on the eye. 

I wouldn't go back though, this one is a keeper for me! I may have to be careful to tap off excess powder before applying to my eyes but these shades are such versatile ones to have on hand and they create the most blended, smooth, highly pigmented looks that it's worth it completely! So if you are eyeing this as I did, watch Ulta, wait for it to go on sale and then grab it when you can because it seems it is actually limited edition.
