LORAC California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette ($30.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in both matte and shimmer finishes. The palette runs warmer, but it seemed more like a neutral palette with pops of rose and mauve accents. The formula felt looser and drier overall; sort of like LORAC’s “filler” formula, when they put together more affordable palettes but aren’t part of their Pro collection (which always has a silkier, more refined feel). I find that this formula can be better or worse depending on the shades and finishes. The downsides of the formula tend to be that they are prone to fading more quickly and sheering out, so a good primer is an absolute must-have to make this palette wear and perform well.

LORAC California Dreaming Cheek Palette ($30.00 for 0.48 oz.) contains four cheek colors to add “highlight, color, and glow” to your skin. The texture of the four shades was very similar to their permanent Colour Source Buildable Blush and Light Source Highlighter formulas. They felt smooth, soft without being too dusty or dry on the skin, and had pigmentation that ranged from medium to opaque (the “downside” to both formulas has always been they’re often more pigmented than buildable, which you may prefer or may be a deal breaker). This is a rather warm-toned palette, so it will work best for someone who likes warmer, brown and peach shades along with a fair amount of shimmer.

Brunch Queen

LORAC Brunch Queen Alter Ego Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cooler undertones and fine pearl. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied evenly on the lips–as in the color did not show streaks–but pulled into every lip line I had, so it did not look that great on its own. The texture was smooth, creamy without being thick, and comfortable to wear over the three hours it lasted on me.

The Alter Ego Lip Gloss formula is supposed to offer “highly pigmented” color with a “soft, vanilla scent.” The four new, limited edition shades for spring are more pastel, and as a result, they tended to suffer from a milkier consistency that was prone to settling into my lip lines. They had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with average wear (three hours). The formula had a sweet, vanilla scent, was mostly non-sticky, and lightly hydrating.

LORAC Panorama Color Source Buildable Blush ($23.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cooler undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation, which was easily buildable to opaque, true-to-pan coverage with a second layer. The powder felt soft, smooth, and silky and wasn’t powdery at all. It blended out beautifully on the skin and had a luminous finish that looked glowing but not shimmery. The blush wore nicely on my skin for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

LORAC Limelight Light Source Illuminating Highlighter ($23.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light, minty green with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It seemed to appear cooler in the pan, but the shimmer itself seemed warmer (like a pale gold) so that it appeared warmer as I blended out the color. The consistency was soft, smooth, and a touch thin, but it applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. It had a high-shine finish–definitely not a subtle highlighter–but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This was a fun highlight to work with, as the aqua hue transformed anything I paired it with. On my normal-to-dry skin, the highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

LORAC I Love Brunch Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes 16 eyeshadows with a mix of matte and shimmer finishes, cool and warm-toned shades that are centered around a pastel theme. This palette will be best for someone who normally uses an eyeshadow primer (or even a white-based/cream-colored base), likes softer colors, and prefers their pigmentation to be medium and buildable rather than intensely pigmented. The formula felt comparable to LORAC’s typical Pro palettes, but these felt denser and had more substance to them, so there was less excess product kicked up in the pan, and some shades lasted longer (without primer) than is typical.
