Lorac Mega Pro 3 - Review & Swatches

28 November 2016

Christmas is almost upon us (OMGYAY!) which means it's time to pump out the reviews and I'm starting with the Lorac Mega Pro 3.

This palette is a limited edition Ulta exclusive and retails for $59USD, if you don't live in the US you're going to need to get a friend to ship it to you or use a parcel forwarding service, I'm not going to rant and rave about how much this irks me, I already did that in my video, just be aware that this palette is going to set you back about $100AUD and if you only want to know if it's worth that much money, I will tell you straight up, it is not.

If you're sticking around for specifics, let's get to it; the palette contains 32 shades, 16 of them are matte and the other 16 shimmers, the beauty of Lorac Pro Palettes is that they have a perfect matte to shimmer balance and the shade ranges allow you to create different looks every single time you pick up the palette.

This year the colour theme is very neutral, a little bit feminine without being excessively pink and totally wearable, the darker shades in the palette allow you to take all those pretty peach and mauve neutrals and turn them in to more defined looks for the evening.

The formula is typical Lorac, if you're not familiar with it then you can expect very soft, smooth shadows with good pigmentation that blend and layer well. You will find that dipping your brush in to the shades will cause a little kick up of product but this typically happens when the formula is as soft as these, personally I don't think it's a detriment to the palette, the shadows perform well and at the end of the day that's the main thing.

The palette contains a nice balance of cools and warms but I do feel like their are a few 'out-of-place' shades like Pomegranate, Mist, Deep Fog, Glacier and Dark Navy. Pomegranate does work with the majority of the shades in the palette, but the blue and greys seem a little odd to me

Overall I'm loving the palette, the colour range is gorgeous, the formula is very nice and they are easy to work with. My only gripe is that we can't get these easily in Australia (and most other parts of the world!) and even on their third release of a Lorac Mega Pro, the Lorac team couldn't work out a way to make it easily accessible for many of their international fans.

If you have the money to burn and you want it then go for it but if your budget is tight you may want to skip this one.

What do you think of the Lorac Mega Pro 3?
