LORAC Mega Pro 4 Palette ($59.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holiay season, though the color scheme is certainly not typical for the holidays! To my eye, it gave a more springtime vibe to me due to the more muted quality of a lot of the colors.

First Impressions

While I have always appreciated the blendability of LORAC’s Pro formula, I have often struggled to wear it well on bare skin due to how powdery/soft they are, as the colors often sheer out or go on unevenly (as they seem more prone to absorbing the natural oils on my skin). This palette had some shades that were dusty and thin, and those sheered out very easily and were hard to keep intense/opaque. There were others that were quite pigmented and seemed to go on well (or that they would). The more powdery formula often wears shorter on me than the average powder eyeshadow, and the eyeshadows in the palette felt similar to past releases so nothing says that the wear would be improved but we’ll see.

LORAC seems to like to reuse names, as there were several shades in the palette with the same names as past releases but the colors were completely different (not just in a way that might occur from a different batch). I have no idea why a warm beige is called “Cool Taupe” at all given the shade existed previously (and was more taupe-like!).

Unzipped Desert Sunset

LORAC Unzipped Desert Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes ten shades in hues of warm neutrals to the tune of copper, bronze, and brown with pops of purple, red, and berry. This was the best performing palette of the Sunset series, which was not a surprise given that warmer neutrals tend to be more pigmented/less difficult to do given the plethora of well-rated warm eyeshadow palettes out there!

From my experience with LORAC’s formulas, the one in the Unzipped Sunset series seemed more like a hybrid between their Pro and Unzipped formula, as the Sunset palettes did not seem to have the same denseness (particularly in the shimmers) as the permanent Unzipped palettes. The mattes, however, were more substantial (less thin) compared to the Pro formula, which also meant less powderiness/sheering out during application.

LORAC Unzipped Mountain Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes ten shades in a “cooler” set of neutrals with a few less neutral shades. I wouldn’t describe it as a genuinely cool-toned palette, but they were not nearly as warm-toned as most palettes are these days.

Unzipped Ocean Sunset

LORAC Unzipped Ocean Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes ten shades in hues of warm neutrals and a few pops of color. There were some nice shades in the palette but some duds, so it was a real mixed bag, which makes it hard to feel strongly either way.

If you’re someone who normally wears primer, I think it might be worth checking out if the colors appeal, but the formula seemed more prone to fading (both initially, almost as it “melted” on the lids as well as during wear). From my experience with LORAC’s formulas, the one in the Unzipped Sunset series seemed more like a hybrid between their Pro and Unzipped formula, as the Sunset palettes did not seem to have the same denseness (particularly in the shimmers) as the permanent Unzipped palettes. The mattes, however, were more substantial (less thin) compared to the Pro formula, which also meant less powderiness/sheering out during application.

It’s part of the Unzipped series, and for the summer/fall, LORAC has released three new, limited edition Sunset-inspired editions. This is the cooler version of the three palettes, though there were warmer shades in it, and it also read as a smoky palette to my eye. The palettes launched this morning on ULTA!
