This review is for LORAC’s Sweet Temptations Set, which is an ULTA exclusive. You can find it in ULTA stores for the Holiday season. The set includes four (4) eye shadow palettes, which each contain four (4) colors: Satisfying Toffee Crunch, Tease Me Truffles, Tantalizing Dark Chocolate, Indulge In White Chocolate.
This set comes in a simple, but gift-ready box. Each palette comes in packaging made of heavy cardboard and decorated like bars of chocolate. The palettes each have a mirror in the lid and close via a magnet.
All of the colors in all of these palettes have great pigmentation. The formula is also very good, though not the best when it comes to LORAC. The formula for LORAC’s PRO palette is definitely better. That said, the formula for these palettes is soft and smooth. They apply with good color and blend while maintaining their color.
The less-than-impressive part about these palettes is the wear time. I found that the shades creased sooner than normal for LORAC eye shadows. It took about two (2) hours for them to crease when applied over bare skin and four (4) hours over primer.
This set gives you a great range of neutral shades. Satisfying Toffee Crunch and Tantalizing Dark Chocolate are very similar, containing browns and golds. Indulge In White Chocolate is perfect for a dark smoky eye. Tease Me Truffles is good for a smoky eye with a pop of purple.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
The formula for these shadows is good for easy application. The powders transfer onto the skin easily and blend out smoothly, with good pigmentation.
This set is a steal. You get four (4) palettes with four (4) shades each, for $36.00, which works out to less than $10 for each palette.
