I’m pretty late to the party with Lorac. Like Vincent Longo, I noticed the brand many moons ago… and nothing really moved me. So I moved on. I feel like Lorac is so underrated… excellent quality for the most part — but no real advertising. I feel like people just don’t know enough about the brand to pay any real attention to it. Perhaps it’s just as well. Maybe Lorac should just exist on word of its excellent quality and word of mouth.
I managed to score the last Red Carpet Reveal Palette from a local beauty supply store (they also sell them at Sephora and ULTA):
The palette contains three shadows, one blush and a dual ended brush. The thing that moved me about this palette was the consistency of the product. OH MAH GAWD… the shadows are like creamy silk! Just divine to touch and to blend. Ditto for the blush. It goes on sheer but like the shadows, the color is totally buildable. All of the colors feature a subtle shimmer (not glitter). That lightest color looks more tan/yellow in the pot, but I’ll tell you that it swatches more of a pale champagne. Good for a highlight on light to medium tones. Not so good for the darker skin tones. But the two middle colors are truly universal. I love them both… warm medium brown and warm dark brown. That rose blush is pretty universal too. Next time I get a really warm toned model, I’m going to try it on to prove that point.
I absolutely love this palette. It’s totally foolproof, and a really lovely way to get a face done quickly and efficiently. I can see tossing this on (even using that darkest brown in the brows) and a little gloss, and heading out the door.
I definitely see myself getting some use out of this one.
