Company’s Description

Created by celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw, this PRO artistry palette is packed with eight shimmer and eight matte eye shadows in all the shades you need to create the hottest looks straight from the red carpet. LORAC’S velvety smooth shadows are infused with soothing botanicals and are ultra-pigmented to perform wet or dry so you can shade, shadow, line, and define your eyes, just like a pro. With 16 shadows to contour, line, define, and create any look you desire, you have everything you need for your eyes and brows in one sleek palette!

This review is for LORAC’s new PRO Palette, which includes 16 eye shadow shades (8 shimmery and 8 matte) and a mini Behind The Scenes Eye Primer.


Packaging: 9.75/10

This palette is made of heavy cardboard. It is very thin but durable and sleek. It closes via a magnet and contains a full-sized mirror inside.

Quality: 10/10

This is probably the best palette I’ve ever used.

The formula for every single of the 16 shades is creamy and applies smoothly. The powder is not too chalky, crumbly, stiff, or dry. They don’t produce fall-out. The formula blends out wonderfully.

Every single color has great pigmentation, regardless of whether it’s a matte or shimmery formula. The matte shades apply evenly and the shimmer shades aren’t chunky or glittery.

I also was very impressed with how long these shadows lasted without primer underneath. There was only slight creasing after six (6) hours of wear without primer. There was slight creasing after ten (10) hours when applied over primer.

The Behind the Scenes Eye Primer is equally impressive. It keeps my shadows crease-free for noticeably longer than many other primers I regularly use, including Urban Decay’s Primer Potion and Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance. LORAC’s Behind the Scenes Eye Primer is very close in consistency and quality to NARS’ Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.

Ease of Use: 10/10

These shades do not produce fall-out, don’t need to be layered to get the color to show, and blend out smoothly without losing their color.

Price: 8.5/10

For $42.00 you get 0.32 ounces (8.8 grams) of product, plus the mini eye primer. This is on the lower end of product size given the price-point.

    I must how much I love reading reviews on this palette! it really appeals to me more than the Naked palettes but sadly the brand isn’t available in my country and haven’t found an online shop yet that carries it… meanwhile, I’m saving up for it!

    Gorgeous palette! Especially that taupey shade is pretty!

    I would really like to own this! Will have to save up for it. Doesn’t have half matt, half shimmer shades?
