LORAC Cue the Confetti Blush Palette

LORAC Cue the Confetti Blush Palette
LORAC Cue the Confetti Blush Palette

LORAC Cue the Confetti Blush Palette ($30.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes four full-sized blushes/highlighters. The three blushes are part of the permanent range, while the highlighter is a limited edition shade. The Color Source Buildable Blush formula is supposed to offer–you guessed it–buildable color coverage with a “silky-smooth” consistency available in matte and satin finishes. The Light Source Illuminating Highlighter formula is supposed to be buildable for both a “soft, natural sheen” or “layered for a high-shine, dramatic effect.” The four shades in the palette weren’t what I’d call buildable; they are very pigmented with a light to moderate touch of the brush to the pan–which will be a happy thing for someone who likes more pigmented cheek colors. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable across all four shades, and they lasted between seven and eight and a half hours on me. The brush is smaller than the average blush brush, but it didn’t seem too small (like it would take a lot of work to apply and blend over the cheek area), and it was fairly soft with only a few bristles that seemed out of place.

Value

  • Colour Source Buildable Blush: $22.00 for 0.17 oz. or $129.41/oz.
  • Light Source Illuminating Highlighter: $22.00 for 0.20 oz. or $110.00/oz.
  • Set Values: $55.64 worth of blush, $16.50 worth of highlighter
  • Total Value: $72.14

Spotlight is a medium, coppery bronze with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that added luminosity to my skin but did not emphasize my pores. It is less buildable than it is very pigmented, but if you use a light touch and a fan brush, you can get sheerer coverage without a lot of work. The texture was very forgiving and easy to use. This is supposed to be the highlighting shade, and it will highlighter medium and darker skin tones but will work more as a highlighting bronzer on lighter skin tones. On my light-medium skin tone, it gave a subtle warmth and sheen when applied with a fan brush. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading. Bobbi Brown Bronze (P, $46.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty (Bronze) (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Terra India (LE, $53.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Clinique Bronze Glow (P, $27.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Santos (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). theBalm Balm Desert (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bahama (LE, $38.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tinge is a pop of light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage in two layers. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty, but smooth and blendable on the skin. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. For reference, this shade just barely shows up on my skin tone. KIKO 109 Candy Rose (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC What I Fancy (LE, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Catrice Coral Me Maybe (P, $5.99) is darker (90% similar).

Makeup Geek Spell Bound (P, $10.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Clinique Pink Honey Pop (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Fun Ending (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Celebrated (LE, $28.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Daybreak (503) (P, $46.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). NARS Unwritten (LE, $30.00) is darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Mallory (Light) (P) is lighter (80% similar). NARS Sex Appeal (P, $30.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Technicolor is a bright, medium-dark coral with warm undertones and a slight pink-leaning paired with a semi-matte finish. It seemed mostly matte but produced a more “natural matte” finish when blended on the skin–the kind of finish that looks like skin and not really flat or dry. It was intensely pigmented, though, where just a tiny bit went a long way, so I would not use the term buildable to describe this one at all. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable, and with a very, very light hand and some time spent buffing, it could be worn at a sheer coverage level. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. Tarte True Love (P, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). NYX Summer Peach (P, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Coral Flower (P, $49.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Coral (LE, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Spring Flock (LE, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Make Believe (LE, $30.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Sephora Flirt It Up (06) (P, $14.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Chanel Angelique (190) (P, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Bashful (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Corail Bagatelle (763) (LE, $43.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Vibrant (LE, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Day Dream (LE, $30.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Guerlain Coral Blush (LE) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Vivid is a bright, light-medium cotton candy pink with strong, blue undertones and a satin finish. The version in the palette is much more intense and brighter than the permanent version I have. The pigmentation was ridiculously intense–it was opaque in no time at all; I felt like I had to use a feathery touch just to get medium coverage! The texture was incredibly soft, smooth, and finely-milled, and as I blended the color out, the finish became more and more satiny. I was pleased that it was rather easy to blend on the skin, because that’s something I find is truly a deal-breaker with such pigmented and bold/bright blushes like this one. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. MAC Saucy Miss (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sweet Sentiment (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Quickie (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NYX Electro (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Se Pomponner (P, $32.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Florida (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #3 (LE) is more shimmery (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Lush & Libido (500) (P, $42.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Pegacorn (DC, $8.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Mochi (DC, $8.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Covered Strawberry (LE) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Maybelline Pink Fever (20) (P, $8.99)(85% similar).

LORAC Mega Pro 3 Palette

LORAC Mega Pro 3 Palette
LORAC Mega Pro 3 Palette

LORAC Mega Pro 3 Palette ($59.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes 32 (!) eyeshadows split across two finishes–matte and shimmer. The palette is an earthy take on neutrals; a little smokier, not quite as overtly warm-toned, and some colors have a subdued/muted quality to them. There are a few cooler-toned shades in the palette as well. I have found that LORAC mattes, while often silky and very soft, are powdery or dusty, which makes them harder to use in practice, as they’ll sheer out, appear dry/dusty on the lid, or fade more readily. I think the matte formula used in this year’s palette is better than last year’s–it is not as prone to kicking up a ridiculous amount of product in the pan with the barest touch of a brush, but it is still a softer, dustier formula that benefits greatly from a primer for better adherence as well as longer wear. LORAC shimmers are better and more consistent, as they are soft, a little dusty or thin, but they tend to be rather pigmented and apply fine to bare skin and last seven to eight hours. If you’re normally a fan of LORAC’s eyeshadows, I think you will enjoy this palette. If you feel like your eyelids eat LORAC matte eyeshadows, this might be better than the normal, but it might still be an issue. The Mega Pro 3 Palette should be available today exclusively at Ulta.

You can use our palette vs. palette tool to compare this palette against other neutral ones, but I have also pulled out two to get you started: Mega Pro vs. Mega Pro 3; Mega Pro 2 vs. Mega Pro 3.

Pink Cream is a pale pink with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that was a smidgen dusty in the pan due to how soft it was. It wore well for seven hours before fading. MAC Yogurt (P, $16.00)(100% similar). Too Faced Powdered Sugar (LE, $16.00)(100% similar). Stila Pale Pink (LE, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Tan is a muted, light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was great, while the texture felt so soft that it was a little powdery, it was a lot less powdery and prone to clumping as some of LORAC’s past matte shades have been for me, so it was easier to work with. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. Smashbox Totally Nude (P) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Beautiful (LE) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Sorbet (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Laced (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Rose to the Occasion (LE) is darker (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pecan is a muted, medium-dark pinky-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which wasn’t really buildable unless you had a lightly tacky base under it. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and blendable. This shade wore well for seven hours on me. Anastasia Dusty Rose (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Strapless (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Choc-ful (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Laura Mercier Fresco (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Dusty Rose (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar).

Guerlain Bois des Indes #3 (P) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). MAC Haux (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Walnut is a medium-dark, yellowed brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was finely-milled and silky to the touch. This shade lasted for just over seven hours on me before fading noticeably. NARS Bengali (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Viseart Taupe (P) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Picnic Basket (LE) is darker (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dusty Mauve is a muted, medium-dark lavender purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft enough that it had some powdery kick up when used, but it adhered better than anticipated and did not sheer out immediately upon blending it out. On me, it lasted for six and a half hours. Colour Pop Bill (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Ciate Jet Setter (LE) is warmer (90% similar). IT Cosmetics Romance (P) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #116 (DC, $20.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Violet Hour (LE) is more muted (85% similar).

Too Faced Rendezvous (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Violet Gray is a dark mauvy purple with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff with a soft, finely-milled texture that was just barely dusty at times. It wore well for seven hours before fading. Zoeva Exquisite (P) is more muted (95% similar). YSL Paris #9 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Atelier Wood Pink #4 (P) is lighter (90% similar).

Too Faced Dreams (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). LORAC Wisteria (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Tang (LE, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Tarte For Realism (LE) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Kat Von D Plum (Contour) (P) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eggplant is a dark, reddish burgundy with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which applied fairly evenly and wasn’t too challenging to blend out (it could have been more forgiving, though). This shade did last longer than others at almost eight hours before it started to break down. Tarte Drama (P) is darker (95% similar). NARS Indes Galantes (Right) (LE, $25.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC I'm Into It (P, $16.00) is brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Velvet (LE) is warmer (90% similar).

Dark Navy is a subdued, blackened navy blue with subtle, cooler undertones and barely-there satin shimmer over a matte finish. The shimmer really wasn’t noticeable on the lid, and as a result, it looked and performed as a matte finish would. The texture was silky in feel, but it was dusty and more prone to sheering out, so this is one that would benefit from a primer. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Inglot #389 (P, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Midnight Kiss (LE) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Switch Me On (LE, $20.00) is brighter (95% similar). Smashbox Harbor (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Tornay (P) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Beaugrenelle #6 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Inked (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Laura Mercier Deep Night (P, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Apres l'Ondee #5 (P) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Maven (LE) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #02 (P, $32.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Crepe is a light beige with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The powder felt silky and very smooth in the pan, but it had a very strong white base and tended to look whiter against my skin tone, so it’s one of those shades that might appear chalky on some complexions. It had good pigmentation with a touch of fall out during application. The color started to fade after seven hours of wear. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #4 (P)(100% similar). Hourglass Atmosphere #1 (P)(100% similar). Smashbox Vanilla (P) is lighter (95% similar). Laura Mercier Buttercream (P, $23.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Rock Candy (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Givenchy Delicate #4 (P) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Black Tie Attire #4 (LE, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Classic (P) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Nude #1 (LE, $19.00) is more muted (95% similar). Sephora Secret Boudoir (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Sand (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Dream On (LE, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Righteous (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Laetus (P) is darker (95% similar). Hourglass Monochrome #1 (P) is darker (95% similar). theBalm #24 (P, $6.50) is darker (95% similar).

Kat Von D Sage (Highlight) (P) is cooler (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Toffee is a light-medium, subdued orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was moderately dusty–one of the looser shades in the palette–so it sheered out noticeably when applied to bare skin; I would definitely recommend using a primer to make this shade apply and adhere better. It had so-so color coverage and lasted for six hours. Makeup Atelier Red Ochre #3 (P) is darker (95% similar). Viseart Beige (P) is warmer (95% similar).

Rose Quartz is a dark bronze with warm, rosy undertones and a metallic finish. It had a much denser and more cream-like texture compared to the other shades; it felt different from past LORAC eyeshadows (even their metallics). There was no fallout or powderiness with this shade, and it was extremely pigmented. I had no trouble applying or blending it on the eyelid. On me, it started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #2 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Olive is a dark, olive brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that applied evenly to the skin and blended out with ease. This shade started to show signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear. (This is a repeat.) Urban Decay Brokedown (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Dark Roast is a muted, blackened brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a frosted sheen. It was richly pigmented and had a soft, lightly dusty consistency that didn’t kick up too much excess in the pan, and it did not lose its intensity when applied and blended out on the skin. This shade wore nicely for eight hours on me. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #6 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Clarins The Essentials #10 (LE) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever ME614 Graphite Brown (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar).

Pomegranate is a bright, medium-dark red with warm, coppery undertones and a satiny sheen. It had good color coverage, but it appeared lighter and less intense swatched and applied to the lid than it did in the pan. The consistency was thinner and a bit dusty, but it was workable and wasn’t fussy when I used it. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #2 (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Sleek MakeUP Sunset #8 (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Licorice is a blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was looser in the pan, so you’ll want to make sure to tap the brush off prior to applying to the lid to avoid excessive fall out during application. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied well to bare skin and blended out fairly easily. I noticed the color faded after seven and a half hours of wear. Make Up For Ever D830 Black Rose (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Tatar (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Evil Stepmother (LE, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar).

There was a one-day, early launch for Ulta Platinum members a few days ago, but the palette will launch officially on October 2nd, exclusively at Ulta. I’ll do my best to review it by the 2nd, but I am not sure if I will make it with this many eyeshadows to test for wear, so here are swatches in the meanwhile:
