Project Focus 10: Lorac Pro Palette

IMG_8086I’m doing a Project Focus 10 with three beauty bloggers. I am trying to finish up 10 products in the span of 10 weeks. A new PF10 post on any updates along with a product review of one of the products will appear every Monday. It’s a challenge for me because the products must be ones I’d never done a full review on before but are still on the market!

Here’s a review on 10/10 PF10 products:

My thoughts

I really thought I was going to use this palette a lot more than I actually did during PF10. I started out using it all the time during the first two weeks. I think it’s because I don’t love every single shade in the palette.

I love this palette mainly because I hardly have any matte shadows. I was able to play with all the matte shadows and they were easy to use because of the high pigment and easy blending. I found that the looks I did with all matte shades tend to look better over time (over an 8 hour work day.)

The shimmers are great, but I have so many shimmers that these did not stand out to me. Although I love pairing the brown matte shades and putting a gold shimmer in the middle. It gives it dimension and look really pretty on the eyes.

What’s your favorite eye shadow palette at the moment?
