Lorac Pro Palette 4 ReviewAs a huge fan of the Lorac Pro eyeshadow formula, naturally I had to pick up the fourth palette in the lineup. Today I’m sharing my review and swatches of the Lorac Pro Palette 4!

The color scheme feels very autumnal to me, though the dark burgundy packaging certainly helps the palette lean this way.

Formula + Thoughts

The Pro eyeshadow formula is super soft with a tendency to kick up a bit of powder in the pan. However, the buttery shadows are pigmented and blendable. I don’t mind the messy pans when I have shadows that give me an easy time on the eyes.

The mattes are some of my favorites out there and do not disappoint here. In general, the shimmers are very pretty, but the finishes are dependent on the individual shade. For this reason, the quality of each shade can vary.Lorac Pro Palette 4 Review

Most of the shimmer shades in Pro 4 are fantastic. Midnight is a little bit of a disappointment though. It’s not really a shimmer; it’s more like a satin black with sparkles in it. My issue with it is that is produces a ton of fallout. It is very black, which is great, but I wouldn’t recommend using this shade unless doing eye makeup first.

I really enjoy the looks I get with this palette! I am especially impressed by the shimmers this time around (with the exception of Midnight). The mattes are just as great as always.

Overall, I think this palette is cohesive, but not too one-note (*cough* Lorac Pro 3), so I think a lot of people will really enjoy using this. I see myself reaching for this palette frequently this fall!

The Lorac Pro Palette 4 is available at Ulta for $44 for 0.32 oz (16 x 0.02 oz)
