LORAC Dream Girl Eyeshadow Palette
LORAC Dream Girl Eyeshadow Palette

LORAC Dream Girl Eyeshadow Palette ($24.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes ten eyeshadows, with two of those being oversized (the “highlighters”) in a range of neutrals and pops of color with the palette leaning warm in undertone. Some of the shades were easy to use, while others were prone to sheering out when applied to bare skin and really needed an eyeshadow primer or slightly tacky white base to pop/look their best.

Dream Girl #1 is a buttery, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had a soft, denser texture that was smooth and blendable on the skin while adhering well. It wore well for eight hours. bareMinerals Standing O (P, ) is less shimmery. Hourglass Color Field #2 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. MAC Canter (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Brass Knuckles (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Gucci Beauty Antique Gold (P, $37.00) is darker, cooler. Anastasia Legend (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Make Up For Ever ME512 Golden Beige (P, $21.00) is darker. MAC Golden Hours #3 (LE, $21.00) is warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE, ) is darker, warmer. MAC Captivating #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker, warmer. bareMinerals Rising Star (LE, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #2 is a medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. The texture was somewhat powdery, so it had sheerer color coverage on the skin. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Viseart Marais (P, ) is more shimmery. Urban Decay Riff (P, $18.00) is less shimmery. Viseart Brique (P, ) is darker, brighter. Colour Pop Desert (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Make Up For Ever S706 Milk Toffee (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Sable Riche (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. Dior Atlantique #5 (LE, ) is darker. Disney by Sephora Bazaar (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. MAC One to Watch (P, $21.00) is more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #3 is a light-medium coral-orange with a pearly, golden sheen. It had so-so pigmentation with a dusty consistency that made it prone to sheering out when applied. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. MAC Paradisco (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. MAC Paradisco (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #6 (P, ) is darker, cooler. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #2 (P, ) is darker, cooler. Urban Decay Freelove (P, $18.00) is cooler. Makeup Geek Cosmopolitan (P, $5.99) is darker, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #4 is a muted, medium-dark bluish-teal with a mostly matte finish. The texture was powdery and thin, which made this apply poorly on bare skin. It was better patted over another shade or else applied over an eyeshadow primer or white base. It showed signs of fading after six and a half hours on me. Makeup Geek Shark Bait (P, $5.99) is darker. theBalm C2 (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Inglot #338 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #5 is a light-medium, golden copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had a really soft consistency that made it prone to thickening on the skin if you over-applied, so I highly recommend using less than you think you need, as it is quite pigmented with little product. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours. Makeup Geek Untamed (P, $9.99) is darker, brighter. Colour Pop KathleenLights (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker. LORAC Unleashed (P, ) is darker, warmer. Tarte Candlelit Dinner (LE, ) is darker. Sephora + Pantone Universe Butterum (LE, ) is warmer. Make Up For Ever ME700 Amber (P, $21.00) is lighter. LORAC Nude #2 (LE, ) is darker. MAC A Glimmer of Gold #3 (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Exquisite Ego #2 (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Brownluxe #3 (P, ) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #6 is a brightened, medium lavender purple with warm, pink undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. There was micro-glitter in this shade, so there was some fall out over time, though the underlying color lasted for eight hours.
Make Up For Ever D926 Blueberry (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. NARS Parallel Universe (Right) (LE, $24.00) is lighter. Colour Pop Dasher (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker. Too Faced Live It Up (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. L’Oreal With a Twist (LE, $7.99) is darker. MAC Tropica (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler. MAC Cheers My Dear (LE, $21.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Light Violet (LE, $32.50) is lighter. MAC Butterfly Party (LE, $32.50) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #7 is a softened, light-medium olive green with warm, golden pearl. It had decent color payoff, though it had a drier, thinner consistency that made it easily sheered out on the skin without a base. Makeup Geek Jester (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker. Sephora + Pantone Universe Kelp (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. Makeup Geek Poison Ivy (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, darker. MAC 2 Dozen and One Greyhounds (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. Cle de Peau Stardust #2 (P, ) is darker. theBalm #16 (P, $6.50) is darker. Make Up For Ever I324 Bronze Khaki (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. Tarina Tarantino Dandy Lion (LE, ) is darker. Gucci Beauty Mosaic (P, $37.00) is darker. Colour Pop Mirage (LE, $5.00) is lighter. Hourglass Color Field #4 (P, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #8 is a dark bronzy brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, slightly dense texture that really needs to be pressed into the skin and must be laid down prior to any other shades. When I tried to blend it over a more satiny shade (from the palette), it applied as a crumbly brown and was harder to blend. The color wore well for eight hours. Zoeva Subtle Blend (P, ) is lighter. Sleek MakeUP Aladdin’s Lamp (LE, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker. Urban Decay Reign (LE, $18.00) is darker. Too Faced Cinnamon Sugar (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Urban Decay Snakebite (LE, $18.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Radar (P, $18.00) is cooler. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #3 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. Le Metier de Beaute Autumn Rust (LE, $30.00) is darker. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #4 (P, $30.00) is warmer. MAC Woodwinked (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Bronze (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Too Faced Brown Sugar (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. Too Faced Haute Chocolate (LE, $16.00) is darker. bareMinerals Embellish (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita #4 (P, ) is less shimmery, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #9 is a brightened, subtly warm-toned white with a frosted sheen. It was very pigmented with a dense, buttery consistency that adhered well to bare skin and lasted for eight hours. Buxom Diamond Darling (P, $12.00) is less shimmery. MAC Smoky Black Friday #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery. Tarina Tarantino Dreamy #1 (P, ) is less shimmery. Too Faced Famous in a Small Town (P, $16.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Lunar Lights (P, ) is less shimmery, warmer. Too Faced La Croisette (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Viseart Yves (P, ) is more shimmery, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #10 is a light peach with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had a softer, blendable texture that was a little dusty on the skin and faded after seven and a half hours of wear. theBalm D2 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC Summer Honey (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #2 (P, ) is darker, warmer. theBalm #18 (P, $6.50) is warmer. theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker.

I think I’ve seen air cushions in 10% of the packages… but the majority have almost nothing in them with the box always 10x too large, and they like to use the slowest shipping known to man (I think it’s SmartPost, where it goes from UPS to USPS), most things are damaged to some degree.

Whenever a company does that to me, I email them and complain, and tell them I expect a replacement or refund. If I get flak, I offer to have my attorney write them a letter. I only have to do that once or twice before they start padding my packages properly. I think I have a “crazy bitch customer” alert attached to all my beauty store accounts. lol

I’ve done a lot of complaining already with ULTA, and they always replace or refund – it just takes 30 minutes on the phone, my own packaging supplies (you have to ship it back), a stop at the post office, and then waiting 10 days for it to arrive (it has to be approved and reshipped, and it always takes forever to get here), so I just don’t bother any more and avoid buying from them as much as possible. If I was a regular consumer, it would be worth the effort, but since I’ll never use this again (especially because I didn’t like it), at the end of the day, it just made a mess to photograph but I got my value out of it.

That’s an awful hassle for you. I can see not wanting the headache in this case. I complained the first couple times I got broken items, and mine have been padded ever since. I’ve been through it with quite a few retailers, TBH. I’ve never had anyone just keep sending under-padded orders and making me fix it time after time. That’s really discourteous, especially to someone like you who buys lots of products regularly. *SMH @ Ulta*

Man, I WISH! I’ve called ULTA three or four times this year as well as got involved with their via Twitter for resolution once (nearly half my order was broken — like 10 pieces were broken) and still, some of the worst packaging jobs I’ve seen.

Do you guys think if we staged a Temptalia-members boycott of Ulta until their packaging and shipping (and customer service!!) practices change, we could get some WERK done?? 😀
I am only slightly kidding. 😉

I agree. Their shipping is extremely slow and awful. I luckily found this on Nordstrom’s site. Unfortunately, I had to order the Hearbreaker palette from Ulta. Tick,tick,tick..geez -so slow! If it comes damaged, I will be returning it and exchanging it until they get it right though. I avoid ordering form Ulta if I can. The whole free shipping over $50 is bologna too IMO! That should be free especially to platinum members or at least match ColourPop and make it $30.

Omg I so agree!!! I HATE Ulta, and yet I’m also a platinum member just because they carry exclusives there that I can’t get other places, and also because they regularly send me 20% off everything (including prestige brands) coupons that I feel like I have to use. Lol. I order from them pretty regularly and their shipping sucks in all ways possible. TERRIBLE customer service to boot and their samples suck too. I really should just stick to Colourpop!

Well, this statement is true (because ULTA doesn’t and most of my orders from ULTA arrive in some state of disarray), but this palette didn’t come from ULTA and was actually a press sample. I don’t typically get press samples from LORAC and had bought a LORAC palette recently (but it was a different one) but confused the two — updated the post.

Well..boo to Ulta and Lorac for poor shipping! I’ve ordered once from Lorax directly- The MegaPro palette. It did arrive in good condition. But,the shipping did take a while. Oh well, I really don’t mind it taking a little longer. But, if the product is damaged, I would not be happy.

With LORAC, at least you could say it’s just a small operation so they can get some leeway (or at least, I do), LOL! ULTA has no excuse. I ordered Mega Pro from LORAC directly as well, but I did pay their astronomical fee to get it here in one or two days.

I agree. I avoid Ulta. Espescially the website. I even have bought many things at the brick and mortar and the SA out a bunch of stuff in one small bag. As I walked out carrying the bag by the plastic handled, the handled snapped and 3 or 4 polished broke all over my stuff! No one rushed to help. The polish ruined my work pants. Luckily ,I had on scrub pants that day. If I had been in a meeting, in dress pants, I would have been irate because their was no offer to replace them. Anyway, they had to replace all the items. Total mess. Their employees are so undertrained. Its really sad. They could potentially rival Sephora. They just chose not to.

Sorry to be downer here, but every time I’ve bought these style palettes from LORAC, They’ve been mediocre at best. Not the buttery goodness.. Like Glo Getter or whatever and all those.. So I’ll be passing on this as well. I do like the look you created. I’m surprised at the B rating! 🙂

I don’t think I’ve tried that. Their palettes are hit or miss – some of them are nice, some of them aren’t.

You’re right. It was the Glow Getter., same size like this, and virtually electric shades that weren’t awesome at all. Still, they do go on sale for around $19 at times so it’s not so bad!

Wow, the colors are so pretty for summer, and glad it got a decent score. But I’m finding that the Lorac shadow formula doesn’t work well for me. I have a couple of Lorac singles and the Lorac Pro 2 palette, and while the colors and finish are gorgeous, it seems that many of the shadows are too soft and powdery to stick well to my oily lids, even with primer. I have to use a slightly tacky cream shadow base, press on the shadow, then brush away any fallout. But if I re-touch up the shadow, there’s fallout again.

I find their formulas vary from palette to palette to some degree, with some being more or less the same, others being quite different, though LORAC tends to lean powdery.

I got this recently, but I haven’t gotten to play with it yet. The colors all swatched nicely on my arm without sheering out. I didn’t notice any significant powderiness. The test is always on the eyes. I can’t wait to try it Unfortunately, I’ve had appointments the last couple mornings, so I didn’t want to chance a new palette. Tomorrow though, I’m going to test drive this baby.

I played with it some today. I do like it very much. The blue is somewhat sheer, but very pigmented for me. This may just be due to my Casper-white skin, but the shade really pops on me. It has a nice sheen to it.

I didn’t find the peach shade dusty, but it’s not as vivid as the others. I liked it better built up a little. I also tried the green, the yellow (shade #1) and Shade #10. Those were about the same for me as for you.

I like the idea of the palette but some of the shades were not as good as I was hoping. I’d probably only use it a few times in the summer anyhow 🙁

I bought this last week out of frustration with the Too faced Sugar Pop palette because the shadows are just awful in that palette I think. I noticed Rachel R. and a couple others stating that they liked this one, so I took a chance. I am so far having pretty good luck with Too Faced shadow Insurance primer. It’s certainly not my best quality shadows. But, with the primer and doing my eyes first, I can do some fun, summer looks or just some basic, fresh looks. I think it’s a great palette. A must-have? probably not. But, generally a nice little palette. 🙂

This looks nice, I’ve been thinking about getting it. You’ve created a beautiful look with it.
I have the other Lorac palette in pink packaging (Heartbreaker) and use it often.

Yet another palette without a matte brow shade. Why is this happening!?
Pretty colors though. Just not a fan of LORAC in general.

I don’t think you can really hit everyone’s preferences for a brow bone highlighter, as some prefer shimmer, some prefer matte, and you have a variety of skin tones, so what you like may not work for someone else anyway.

I avoid buying from ULTA as much as possible if it isn’t a lipstick/gloss, but even tubes of skincare have arrived exploded.

Wow.. So glad I read this and saw extra comments! I’ve rarely ordered from ULTA, but I’m scared to again! I’m so sorry about so many bad experiences! Wow! That’s not cool..

Very pretty summer colours – it’s a shame that Lorac couldn’t get the blue colour right – making it a matte didn’t help the cause. I love number 7 – lovely colour.

I almost ordered it from Nordstrom but decided to wait for your review. Glad I did. the swatches are not what I expected. the kind of intensity I like is just not there Thank you Christine! ^^

I absolutely love the eye shadow look you created with this! I can see how this could easily be over the top, but you made it subtle yet ‘look at me.’ Perfect! I love Lorac and this looks like a great palette.

This is really not half bad for $24.! The only shade here that doesn’t quite look too great is the teal. I do wish that it were a deeper, more saturated shade of teal like some of its dupes. I love that very deep bronze shade, and the golds and purple looks fantastic!

This is such a fun, cute palette! The packaging is a little loud but I like it along with the mix of colors. I was hoping for that Pro palette quality but this still looks like a nice palette

I have the Heartbreaker Ulta exclusive palette and that one, like this, is MADE IN CHINA. That said, these are not the same formula and quality as the usual LORAC eyeshadows. I am done purchasing these cheap versions that LORAC puts out. I still love LORAC, but only the NOT Made in China items, like the Pro palettes and the Unzipped palettes.

The made in China ones are a mixed bag. I didn’t think the Skinny palettes were too hot. I like this and Heartbreaker, though. I noticed the Party Girl (something like that) one on Ulta got pretty dismal customer reviews, so I skipped that.

AMEN! It kills LORAC’s true greatness when the made in China palettes take its place.. I had forgotten all about that realization! Thank you! That’s what it was in the palettes shaped like these.. There’s another with 4 shadows and a couple other things, not sure what it where, but there’s a gorgeous deep royal violet in it.. Just like in another I had.. But no pigmentation.. It’s a toss up, for sure, like Christine said.

The Heartbreaker palette was released simultaneously with this one, but Heartbreaker is only at Ulta. It’s the neon pink packaging and someone in the above posts mentions it, too. I think Lotus also commented about the so-so quality of these types of “cheapie” LORAC releases. It actually irritiates me that LORAC does releases like this, i.e. cashing in on brand loyalty while providing an inferior product. I’m careful to read the back of the packing now (although yes, I was fooled again with Heartbreaker).

I have been wearing these shadows exclusively for a week now. At first I thought I would return them but every look I’ve created has been pretty and they’ve lasted all day with no fading or creasing so I’m keeping them. The blue teal looks STUNNING as an outer V color for the green (a happy outcome to the risk I took of using that color on a work day). I always use primer and the blue/teal gave beautiful pigmentation. Using 1,2, and 3 made a naked eye look prettier on me than any combination I’ve been able to put together with Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette. The purple (which I expected to have pod pigmentation) was true to color and lasted all day. It looked nice with the rich brown color in the outer V. But much more surprising to me is how pretty the dark brown looks all over the lid (with a rich gold or bronze base), the light brown in the crease, and then put the purple right on top of the light brown in the crease. Both the high light colors are nice too. I agree with your grade, Christine. I have very nice eye products from brands like Tom Ford, Chanel, and Nars, and the quality is not the same. However, for a fun summer palette on a budget, I think the quality here beats out most products in this price range and above. I am glad I got it!

Pass! Although your eye look I LOVE! So pretty and unique!
But I won’t settle for mediocre quality shadows anymore, there’s just no reason to! I’m SO hoping the new Metal palette does much better!!
