Makeup for Work: Simple Plum ft. Lorac Pro Palette 2

28 Jul

Hello, all! Another quick look for you today, but as I mentioned I’m rather behind in the interesting posts. Figured I’d post it at any rate, as some people don’t wear crazy rainbow things on a daily basis 🙂

plum collageI was having fun with the Lorac Pro 2 again. I am really enjoying the plum color (aptly named Plum) because of how muted down it is. Believe it or not, the only other decent purples I own are from Sugarpill. Yeah. Not muted. plum collage 2This technique with the purple could be substituted with a dark green like Jade or blue like Navy to achieve a similar effect on different eye colors. plum collage 3 Oh!

REVIEW: Lorac Pro Palette 2

26 Jul

Hello, all! I decided to not be super late on the bandwagon and picked up the second Lorac Pro Palette (my review of the first Pro Palette here)lorac 2 collage 3

Packaging on this is the same no-nonsense sleek cardboard packaging as the first Pro Palette, but grey instead of black. Easier to tell them apart, I suppose, which is always nice.

Swatches were done with one finger swipe on bare skin. Check out those shimmery shades! I nearly had a heart attack when I swatched them.

Neutral Eyeshadow Palette Smackdown: Part 1

28 Apr

Whoa. That sounded dramatic. 

But really, I have so many neutral palettes. Why not talk about them and share the glory?

LINK TO PART 2 HERE

1. Urban Decay Naked Palette

(My review here.)

Yep, Naked the First and only for me, as I have found love at first swatch (you should’ve seen me in Sephora. It was like I’d gotten a perfect SAT score…which sadly, I did not). Granted, this palette is not very versatile. More mattes, please! But the colors are gorgeous and each is unique, so I forgive. The packaging does irk me a bit, although I know they’ve fixed this in the Naked 2 and 3. Fake velvet though? Really? Dust magnet all up in here. I wouldn’t take it traveling, but it is one gorgeous lil thang.

One thing I love about this palette that I don’t see a lot is the variety of warm and cool tones. The Naked 1 is known as the warm-toned neutrals out of the 3, but it has a few cool tones in there, too! Darkhorse is greeny-brown, Toasted is a pinky-brown, Gunmetal is a blue-silver just to keep things interesting…come on, it’s amazing.

And because I like lists…

Pigmentation: 5/5

Versatility: 3.5/5

Packaging: 3.5/5

Overall: 4/5

Do I reach for it? Almost every day!
