Upon online shopping at Ulta I came across two limited edition, Lorac, Ulta exclusive eyeshadow palettes. Each palette costs $12, and are supposedly valued at $110. Without hesitating, I added Platinum Status to my basket and awaited its arrival.
Now, the packaging is very cute; sturdy cardboard, magnetic upon closing just like the beloved Lorac Pro Palette. It's almost the size of a iPhone so it's easy to chuck in your bag hassle free. Inside there is a mirror and five shades, none of which are matte.
Someone who hasn't tried the Lorac Pro Palette would most definitely agree that this is a great palette, unfortunately I was a little bit let down. I just didn't find the shadows to be as buttery and soft. Yes these shadows feel better than drugstore shadows but they're just not that familiar Lorac quality. The swatches photographed are with one swipe and no primer, these do however appear much better with primer just not great like the Lorac Pro. The last two shades were probably the biggest let down, I was looking forward to that deep purple but it applied patchy and felt a little gritty to the touch, and a sheer swatched black is always a bummer. The shade I liked the most was probably the middle coppery brick shade but even that had quite a bit of fallout. The last thing that drives me nuts is the fact that there are no names for these shades, aside from 1-5, as stated on the back of the box this palette comes packaged in! All in all I would say pass on this palette, I don't understand where the $110 value came from, maybe if this came with a quality primer I would recommend purchasing.
