Frosted Sequoia

LORAC Frosted Sequoia Mini PRO Eyeshadow Palette ($15.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral palette that included three matte eyeshadows and three shimmery shades. All six eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and longer-wearing with the lightest matte being more powdery and being the “weak” shade of the bunch.

Timber

Timber is a light, pinky-beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery, though certainly finely-milled and smooth, but it was more prone to fallout. It had opaque color coverage that sheered out slightly without the benefit of a primer underneath. It lasted well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

-

In 2020, the brand reformulated their PRO eyeshadows and released new palettes (and new shades, however new-new they might be). The formula is supposed to be "highly pigmented" that "last[s] without creasing" and "blend[s] effortlessly." Each eyeshadow can also be removed from its respective palette--there's an included tool to do so--to rearrange the palette or depot (nice touch!).

The mattes felt less thin and were not quite as dry as the prior formula--a bit silkier--though the matte eyeshadows are still lightly to moderately powdery with light fallout but are blendable. I think it's a formula more suitable to someone who tends to prefer buildable coverage and a little more muted color.

The shimmers were slightly creamier, smooth, and blendable with higher color coverage that had good adherence to bare skin. They seemed a little thicker than the prior formula, which I think gave them better hold.

For the most part, they were easy to use with most shades lasting between seven and eight hours, which is average, so the longevity wasn't any better/worse than most eyeshadows on the market (including the prior formula).

Acorn

Acorn is a light-medium brown with warm, more orange-leaning undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which applied beautifully to bare skin and blended out with little effort as the texture was soft, smooth, and not too loosely nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Sequoia

Sequoia is a muted, medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was soft, blendable, and a little powdery in the pan but not prone to fallout. This shade wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Firefly

Firefly is a darker gold with warmer undertones and a metallic finish. I noticed the color looked a lot lighter and yellower when applied than it did in the pan. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and not overly dense, so it picked up well with a dry brush and yielded opaque coverage. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

I’m confused. When I think of “foliage”, I picture greens, golds, orange or red. But Taupe? Only if the “foliage” is in a mulch pile!
Other than that, this isn’t bad or anything. I only wish that it put me a Sequoia forest mood.

Girl, you are old enough to remember ‘All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray.’ And it’s North American fall, so…. What makes that funny is that Lorac issued the California Dreaming palette, which did not fare so well as Mystic Oak. And that’s the song that inspired the palette theme. This foliage is not as bright as NJ’s in Oct.

Another beautiful little gem from Lorac – I am sorely tempted by this one, but really I do have similar shades from my other Lorac palettes, especially when I get the Fairytale Forest one….

This is cute and all, but all of these brown palettes on repeat are enough to make me fall asleep. This is on sale for $9 at beauty brands right now, and even at that price I can’t bring myself to buy it, knowing that I’ve already got basically every brown known to man in my collection already.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
