Lorac Unzipped Palette, and Behind The Scenes Eye Primer Review, Swatches, and Look.

About a month ago I went into my Sephora inside JCPenny and was in awe of the Unzipped palette from Lorac, so of course I picked it up!

This is the palette closed and it also comes with a Behind The Scenes Eye Primer.

Natural light


The inside has a great size mirror.

Natural light
L to R, Top Row ~ Undercover, Unbelievable, Unattainable, Unconditional, & Unbridled
Bottom Row ~ Undiscovered, Unreal, Uncensored, Unspoken, & Untamed
Colors are swatched in same order as they are in the palette and swatched with no primer.


How do I even begin to tell you how much I love this palette! If you have not used Lorac eye shadows, you must try them! They are in a league of their own! If you are not familiar with Lorac, it is a makeup company founded by makeup artist Carol Shaw who has been a celebrity makeup artist for years.

There are so many nude/natural palettes out right now, and I have them all, but the Unzipped Palette is probably my favorite. I do love all of them, but I find myself reaching for this one more than the others. I think it gives you a great variety of matte and shimmer eye shadows. One of my biggest issues with palettes is I feel like they never give you a good matte crease color and this one has what I need.

You can create a simple everyday eye with this or really get some drama and create a beautiful smokey eye for an evening out. This palette is great for all skin tones as well.

The Unzipped palette eye shadows are so pigmented and smooth and they blend beautifully!

I was pleasantly surprised with the Behind The Scenes Eye Primer. I usually use TFSI or UDPP, but this one is fabulous. I have been using this a lot lately and I find it works just as well as TFSI and UDPP. It has the same texture as UDPP. When I use it my eye shadow doesn't crease and stays vibrant all day! What more do you need!

This is an everyday look that I throw on my face when I don't know what to wear. Neutral eye, with a pop of color on the lips. Simple and easy!

Overall I definitely recommend the Unzipped Palette! It is is a great palette for travel, especially for this Summer, you can throw it in your makeup bag and have a great set of shadows that you can wear with anything! It is a must have in my book!

You can find it at or your local Sephora store for $40.

What do you think of the Unzipped Palette?

Purchased this myself.

I think it is beautiful and it just went on my wishlist.

We used to have a Sephora in JC Penney but they took it out. I was absolutely crushed. :(

Very pretty FOTD. I love the neutral eye colors with the bright lip. Great for everyday wear. Even at night this look would be great to wear. :)

I haven't tried Lorac products yet. I heard their eyeshadows are amazing. This Unzipped palette has versatile range of neutrals. Great for day to night too. :)
