After a sudden surge of feeling dramatic and creative, I’ve been playing around with a lot of eyeshadow looks that involve taking the shadow out further out and attempting the “soft wing” trend. My Urban Decay shadows just haven’t been cutting it and I realized that I really missed the blendability and depth of my deeper LORAC shadows.
I decided to pick up this lil’ baby LORAC Pocket Pro Palette from Ulta. It’s the only three shades I would ever need to create a simple, go-to, every day look. In the same shipment I also got a Z Palette. Let’s just say… depotting LORAC shadows is a big no-no. They’re too soft. I lost a lot of shadow in the depotting process but hey, what can ya do. I definitely didn’t want to have to keep track of this tiny mini palette. That being said, I took some pictures before I ruined them for good:
And just because I know that those pictures don’t mean anything unless you can see what they look like swatched and applied, here are some photos of these beautiful shadows in action:
It’s unbelievable how buttery “Nude” and “Espresso” are. I don’t know how LORAC does soft, pigmented shimmery nudes so well but man, they definitely are the best.
