Lorac Mega Pro 2 Palette - First Impressions, Review and Swatches!

Oooooh you know the holidays are getting near once all the holiday makeup collections start to release! Like you I have many items on my list. Oddly enough this was not something I was initially interested in. I'm not quite sure why. I have the original Lorac pro and pro two palette and absolutely love them. I passed on the Mega pro last year and kinda regretted it once it was sold out.

I was going to pass on this one too but after seeing pictures of it over and over again on my instagram feed, it started to look like a great palette that I could and would use every day.

I picked this up on Sunday at my Ulta and I'm so glad I did!

The palette is quite pricey at $59 but I think it's definitely worth the price. The regular Lorac Pro palettes are $42 a piece and you're getting two palettes in one here for only $17 more. So I think it's definitely worth it.

I feel like most Lorac palettes I've purchased have come with a eye primer but this one does not, just so you are aware.

The palette in size is not bulky despite being double the size of a Lorac pro palette. The thinness of the palette keeps it from being bulky. I think it would be great for travel. You have every shade you'd need with you. I love that there is a nice size mirror included.

The palette includes sixteen matte shades in the top two rows and sixteen shimmer shades on the bottom rows.

I think you get a great variety of warm and cool tones. There are great blending shades, transition shades, and I love a good shimmery lid shade and there are plenty of them!

The looks that you can create are endless. You can get a great neutral eye, smokey eye, and even a colorful eye look.

If you have never used Lorac eye shadows you don't know what you're missing! Lorac eye shadows are some of the best out there. The formula is like butter...BUTTER!  The pigmentation is amazing. They blend easily. Some of them can kick up a lot of dust but that doesn't hinder the quality, blend-ability, or performance at all.

On to some swatches!

First row - Matte
Second row - Matte

Third row - Shimmer

Fourth row - Shimmer

I've already used this palette and love it! I am so glad that I changed my mind and picked it up. I know I will use this a lot. I highly recommend that you pick up the Lorac Mega Pro 2 for yourself before it sells out. It is a limited edition item so once it's gone, it's gone!

This would be a great gift for anyone this holiday season!

You can find it on ulta now!

Nice palette, but I know myself and I would only use the neutral colors.

@Monica, You know I'm usually the same way! I like to throw in a little color on the lower lashline occasionally for a pop of color. :)
