LORAC POCKET PRO PALETTE

After a sudden surge of feeling dramatic and creative, I've been playing around with a lot of eyeshadow looks that involve taking the shadow out further out and attempting the "soft wing" trend. My Urban Decay shadows just haven't been cutting it and I realized that I really missed the blendability and depth of my deeper LORAC shadows.

I decided to pick up this lil' baby LORAC Pocket Pro Palette from Ulta. It's the only three shades I would ever need to create a simple, go-to, every day look. In the same shipment I also got a Z Palette. Let's just say… depotting LORAC shadows is a big no-no. They're too soft. I lost a lot of shadow in the depotting process but hey, what can ya do. I definitely didn't want to have to keep track of this tiny mini palette. That being said, I took some pictures before I ruined them for good:



And just because I know that those pictures don't mean anything unless you can see what they look like swatched and applied, here are some photos of these beautiful shadows in action:



It's unbelievable how buttery "Nude" and "Espresso" are. I don't know how LORAC does soft, pigmented shimmery nudes so well but man, they definitely are the best.

This trio has been needing to join my army for awhile and now that they have, they will be stars on days where I don't want to think about my shadow combos. They blend in an instant, complement each other so nicely and pair well with any cheek/lip combo.
