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, but 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 versatility. Best of all, though, the quality is always there in each and every Lorac palette. I have never ever 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. 😉
Moving on to the colors, can we just stop and take in all the glory of these beautiful shades? First up you have 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, 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 great 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
Check out my other favorite Lorac Pro Palettes!
My daughter was telling me about these palette thinking she was hinting around. After reading your review think I will have to surprise her with one.
Aw, yes you can’t go wrong with any of the Lorac palettes. Hope she loves it!
oh my! I fell in love with those swatches,
They’re soo pretty, right?! Love!
I’m in love with the palette you showed, might have to think about this buy! The shimmer shades are so to die!!!! I love love love!
That’s my favorite part of this palette is all the gorgeous shimmers! 🙂
I’m a huge fan of Lorac palettes as well! I have the Mega 2 & Pro palette and use many of those colors frequently. I love the pigmentation on these shades!
The pigmentation is so awesome! So glad you love Lorac too! 🙂
It’s a good one! I used it yesterday!
I love it! So glad you love yours too! 🙂
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!
Thanks Jennifer! This palette offers extreme versatility in having matte and shimmer shades! 🙂
I love your make-up reviews! I love all the colors in this palette.

Thanks Greta! So many beautiful shades! 🙂
Obsessed with this palette! So many gorgeous colors! I usually prefer mattes but these metallics are so amazing! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
They are stunning! I can’t wait to create some gorgeous looks with it! 🙂
Oh my gooooodness what beautiful shades. Love the shimmers the best, but all of them are so great and can be used for so many different looks! What a great gift to yourself 🙂
Haha yes, technically it was my husband’s “gift” to me- but I picked it out so pretty much I treated myself lol.
I have the original pro palette and love it but this one sounds like I need!
I love the regular pro palette too! Definitely a favorite go-to! 🙂
What a gorgeous palette! You could create any look with it. Great pick!
Agreed! It’s such a versatile palette for creating so many pretty looks! 🙂
I do not have this palette yet. I debated on if I really needed it or not. Those shadows are gorgeous though!! I love all the shimmer shades!
I was that way with the former Mega Pro palettes, but this one with all the rosy shades and beautiful shimmers drew me in! 🙂
They are all so pretty! I really like the dark palette and the shimmer one. Those are so gorgeous!
I know! I’m kindof obsessed with both of those swatches specifically! So many pretty shades to choose from! 🙂
That was one of my major goals to maybe just wear more makeup 🙂
I love all the colors. Maybe I should start on how to wear them!!

They’re beautiful colors! Feel free to let me know if you have any specifics on makeup you’d like me to cover on the blog! I always love sharing tips! 🙂
Oh my goodness, these shades are gorgeous! Love that you swatched all of them, can’t wait to see a make up look with this 🙂
Yes! I’m thinking a Valentine’s Day look with this palette is in my future! 🙂
These colors are gorgeous! I have the Lorac Pro and Pro 2. I have so many palettes that I don’t reach for them often but after this post I need to give them more love. I would use 90% of the colors in that palette! Thanks for sharing!
Lorac Pro and Pro 2 are seriously like my go-to palettes most days. I always appreciate the nice range of mattes and shimmers! 🙂
Oh my word… all the options of colors. So beautiful.
Haha I know at first I didn’t want to swatch them because I didn’t want to mess up the beauty lol.
Such a gorgeous palette! Obsessed with the rose quartz color <3
It is so gorgeous! One of my faves for sure! 🙂
I’m obsessed with Lorac shadows…they are so creamy and pigmented. I especially love how easy their matte shadows blend.
Beauty With Lily
Yes! It makes it super easy for creating beautiful eyeshadow looks! 🙂
Such a pretty palette! I love Lorac..they have the best eye shadows!
Agreed! The quality is excellent!
This palette is beautiful! I have not tried a Lorac product, but for this value, I may try it once I finish my current palette! Happy Birthday!
It was Dec. 22nd but thank-you! And this palette is so pretty! 🙂
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!
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! 🙂
The rose quartz is so beautiful!
That’s one of my fave shades! So pretty!
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
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!
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! 🙂
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! 🙂
Wow! 32 shades! This palette looks like it has everything. I don’t usually go toward the “shimmery” shades, but love dark mattes!
I’m a shimmery girl through and through haha, but yes this palette has TONS of awesome matte colors! 🙂
I have always wondered about these palettes! I actually saw these at Kohl’s. and was thinking I should try one! Now that I’ve seen your reviews, I want to, I especially love the shimmers! Such beautiful colors that are right up my alley! I hope you have a marvelous Monday beautiful!
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! 🙂
