An eye shadow palette with shades for every look and high color payoff is always one of my favorite beauty finds. So when celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw sent me the soon-to-be released LORAC Pro Palette 2 that she curated herself, I was thrilled. I can’t wait to try these hues! Everything from a smooth nude for daytime wear and accenting to rich plum and black for the sultriest smoky eye are included. The sequel to the original cult classic Pro Palette, the Pro Palette 2 offers 16 versatile neutrals for the girl who loves a little shimmer on the eyes, but likes to accentuate her features with a matte beauty look as well.
My first impression, these shades are gorgeous! They’re highly pigmented and blend out smoothly across your skin when applied wet or dry–a major bonus for those who may still be struggling with even application. The darker matte shadows will make your eyes pop, add dimension to your look and would work as an eyeliner with a soft edge as well. While the first Pro palette played it a bit safer by sticking with more neutral browns, the Pro Palette 2 is definitely for the more adventurous. How can the Mocha, Navy and Jade not make you want to take beauty risks? And like the original, your eye makeup will stay put thanks to the mini Behind the Scenes eye shadow primer tube included.
I’m thinking of giving this palette a complete wear test on my next straight from work to night on the town. That way I can use the palette to easily transition my look. Can’t wait!
What colors are your favorite from the Pro Palette 2?
