Lorac Mega Pro Palette 3 Review + Swatches

Hey Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! Today I wanted to share with you my birthday gift to myself this year. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Lorac eyeshadow palettes and own several of their regular pro palettes, including Lorac Pro and Lorac Pro 2, butย when I saw this limited edition palette come available, I knew I had to snatch it up.

Lorac Mega Pro Palette 3

The Lorac Mega Pro Palette 3 features 32 eyeshadows and retails for $59. The colors are so gorgeous and I love how Lorac palettes always have a nice mixture of matte shadows and shimmer shades for extreme versatility.ย Best of all, though, the quality is always there in each and every Loracย palette. I have never everย been disappointed in the quality, the pigmentation, and the longevity of these shadows, and that’s what always keeps me coming back for more.

As mentioned previously, these shadows do have wonderful pigmentation which makes them great for blending, but I personally always use the NYX white eyeshadow base as a primer on the lid to ensure the colors are bold, bright, and beautiful, and that they stay in place all day long. Also, because the shadows are a soft, velvety texture, a little product goes a long way. I recommend lightly sweeping the brush in the product, so that you don’t end up making a mess everywhere. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Swatches

Moving on to the colors, can we just stop and take in all the gloryย of these beautiful shades? First up you haveย some gorgeous light, everyday matte shades that are perfect for both base and transition shades. I’ve already been enjoying using so many of these to create multi-dimensional looks, and both Pecan and Toffee are already favorites of mine.

Next up,ย you also have some beautiful dark mattes in a range of cool and warm tones, perfect for creating beautiful smoky eye looks. The top three shades alone would be so gorgeous for creating a romantic look for Valentine’s day.

Moving on to all of the shimmer shades, I’m absolutely blown away with how stunning these shades are. Between the beautiful light shimmer tones that are greatย for highlighting the eye, and the darker, seductive looking tones, there’s a perfect shade for every beauty lover out there.

I can see these shades making an appearance in my eye looks year round, with shades that will look beautiful in every season.


What do you think of the colors in this palette? I’d love to hear if you’ve ever tried Lorac eyeshadows! Let me know in the comments!

Have a great week!- Cara

  6. You’re review is so helpful! I’m a complete dummy when it comes to makeup… like I’m lucky to leave the house with blush and mascara. But I’m trying to branch out more and you always give such good advice!

  22. Bark looks amazing! Right up my alley. I’ve never bought one of the bigger palettes, only the smaller ones that somethings show up on Hautelook. I’ve always been really impressed with the quality too!

    Posted 1.16.17 Reply
    • It’s a great color! That’s honestly why I always go with Lorac just because their quality is amazing! This was a bit of a splurge for me, but I really love the colors and think I’ll get a lot of use out of it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now I need to order this palette because these shades are definitely my type of shades. I just ordered the Tartiest Pro Amazonian Clay palette. Lord help my bank account lol

    Posted 1.16.17 Reply
    • Lol, I know right?! I feel like these types of palettes are worth the investment simply because they’re so versatile and last a long time!

  25. When I saw the palette I wasn’t impressed, but your swatches changed the game. I am in love with dusty mauve, pecan, mist, maple and all the shimmer shades!

    • I know what you mean- sometimes so many eyeshadow palettes can look beautiful or boring, and then end up being totally different once you swatch. I love it so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

    These colours are so nice! From bold to neutral, love it! I am not a big fan of shiny eye shadow though.

    • Thank-you! I think when incorporated with mattes, shimmer shades can be so beautiful! But everybody has their preferences and that’s okay! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yes, you should Andrea! I’ve never bought a palette from them I didn’t like. I personally really like how they include so many everyday shades with a few “fun” shades for special occasions. It makes it very useable! ๐Ÿ™‚
