LORAC Mega Pro 2 Eyeshadow Palette
LORAC Mega Pro 2 Eyeshadow Palette

LORAC Mega Pro 2 Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.45 oz.) contains sixteen matte eyeshadows and sixteen more shimmery shades (varies from satin to metallic). The quality is comparable to LORAC’s eyeshadow formula in the past Pro palettes: very silky and soft but moderately powdery, so some shades are faster to fade, have a lot of fall out, or sheer out when applied to the skin. I like their shimmers more than their mattes, because I test over bare skin, and the mattes tend to need a primer to perform well. The palette gets pretty messy, as there is a ton of excess kick-up with almost all of the shades, so use the most delicate of motions to get color out of a pan.

This new, limited edition holiday palette that will be available exclusively at ULTA beginning October 4th, but it is apparently available to Platinum members exclusively today here (I have heard that non-Platinum members had success purchasing as well).

Worth repeating is that this year’s palette contains 0.45 oz., whereas last year’s palette contained 0.62 oz. (the price is the same on both palettes); visually, they appear to be the same size, and the pans still line-up, so I can only guess that the pans themselves are shallower or somehow they tweaked the formula to make it fill the same volume with less product. I was surprised to see such a noticeable difference in quantity, given that they otherwise appear to be the same size.

Updated 10/5 at 8AM PST: LORAC PR emailed me with the following information: “Similar to all of the brand’s PRO palettes, the shadows in this new one have the same base formulations, pan size/depth and shadow volume. However, the difference in weight is due to the actual weight of the shadow pigment, which varies based on light or darkness of the specific color.”

I stand by my original thought that that’s far too many white/off-white shades to be in one palette. That’s like eight shades that would be hard to use on anyone with even a mildly dark skin tone. Plus the fact that it’s less product for the same price is very disappointing to me.

Vice 4 is the only Holiday palette I’ve gotten so far (I adore it!) and I’m not really thirsting for any of the other ones (besides possibly Spectrum). It seems like most of the holiday palettes this year have taken a dip in quality and a massive upswing in size/bulk.

“The palette gets pretty messy, as there is a ton of excess kick-up with almost all of the shades, so use the most delicate of motions to get color out of a pan.”

I recently came to find lorac’s formula to be quite ‘fragile’… I started depotting my palettes a few days ago and lorac’s are the only ones that broke apart πŸ™ I guess they are just softer in general? I will pass this, lots of very common colors and the price point doesn’t seem very great considering the quantity drop compared to last year’s. Fingers crossed for the new MUFE shadow palette to come out and get a great review from you!

Some pretty colors here, but skip for me. Me and Lorac shadows just don’t get along –they are so soft, powdery, and silky that they don’t stick well on my oily lids, even with primer. The matte ones tend to melt/smudge and the shimmery ones tend to fade πŸ™ I have a Lorac Pro 2 kit sitting unused in my stash, might have to try glitter glue, or wait until I’m 60 years old, when my lids finally dry up to the point of “normal” LOL My fave color here is Blue Quartz, but I have CP Kimono, which lasts great on me. Will be checking out dupes for Peony and Penny

I hear what you’re saying, Katherine! To me, it is a formula that people will LOVE or hate working with, depending on their preferences!

It was out of stock almost immediately after your post went up I feel like…I could not believe it.
After reading the ingredients I feel like they’re too cheap to justify the price tag (talc, mineral oil, etc.) anyway. I mean, I have plenty cheap palettes that have those ingredients, but I feel like the mid to high end ones shouldn’t.

Before your review and swatches, I felt that this palette was a no-go for me because it looked like too many pale/light shades, but I have to let you know that your excellent skills as a photographer did the colors in this palette justice so much more so than Lorac’s promo pics!
But, I’m still not buying it for many reasons:
1.Yet again, the purples and majority of plums are wretched in quality!
2. Too little product for the $, and quite the deduction from last year.
3. Powderiness GALORE.
4. I can get better with UD , MUFE, & MAC.

I’m kicking myself right now! Ulta did a platinum today only release and i missed it. I had a busy morning and didn’t check my email. At least there is next weekend.

I’m excited about this palette. I did order it. I never used my original MegaPro until recently and I think I like these colors more. Glad it’s the colors I can’t use because of a carmine allergy that scored low! The rest looks good. The Lorac Pro is probably my favorite palette so I’m looking forward to it.

I thought I was going to likely getting this. Upon reading this review two times thoroughly, plus an initial skim, I am now thinking probably not. It’s just not exciting me like I had hoped.

I do and I tend to not use them much . I just reread AGAIN and noticed your poor eye! Oh geez, I hate fallout in my eye! I wear disposable contacts. So, they automatically have to be changed. But, they shield my eye. Makes for a mess when you don’t need it though! Ugh. That has to get rough when your testing shadows. (:

I like this better than I thought I would. There are some really pretty warm colors. I feel like I have these kind of shades, and there are too many really light colors. I’ll pass.

To be honest, I don’t really like this palette. For a start the quality of the shadows are all over the place and many of the matt shades are quite poor. Secondly, their are a lot of very similar colours bulking up the palette and yet there are few original ones. If you were a purple fan – you would be very disappointed. Thirdly – it is a bit mean to charge the same price and deliver less product than usual.
The colours are extremely dupable and ones that have been in their previous collections.

Olivine is one gorgeous shadow but the rest of the colors aren’t really doing much for me. I think I can safely skip this one

Great review! It seems like dark purple shades are a difficult many companies to do correctly and I don’t understand why. Seems to be a trend. Have you noticed?

Oh, wow! Big disappointment. Who ever did a palette with 3 colors at the 95% dupe level? What’s up with that, seriously? They won’t be distinguishable for many… Most? Some significant duds.. Most eminently dupable, many from MUG or CP, and Nyx did better on the blue. Some dupes from MJ20, which I fell for. The only shades that really appeal to me are the oranges! I’ve used Pro M 1 lots, but think I’ll forego this one.

I was really excited for this palette but now I am not sure if I still want it, I wish the shadows weren’t so powdery. I like the selection of shades though.

Initially I was interested in this palette but when I got the notification over the weekend that it’s now available at ULTA, I wasn’t as excited as I thought I’d be. It’s a nice palette, but I’m still on the fence…

Way too many off-white shades that look practically the same, but a great review!

So far none of the holiday palettes have me reaching for the ol’ credit card. I hope Too Faced’s newest Chocolate Bar eye palette (Bon Bons — I hate how they’re re-using an old name) will be good. Have you heard anything about it? thx

This is a pass for me. The performance is meh, there are too many light colors, and the more interesting colors are poor quality. I don’t appreciate this formula and prefer the formula of the Unzipped palette. I find the pro formula to end up looking powdery and cakey on my eyes. I bought into the hypeof the Pro 1 & 2 palettes, but never reach for them. I wish she’d come out with more shadows with the Unzipped formula, because that is one of my all time favorite palettes.

Would you say this is a palette worth the purchase? I own the original Lorac Pro palette and love it. Really upset I missed out on last years mega pro palette. I don’t mind the colors of this palette, but really torn about the formula from hearing reviews.

If you really like LORAC Pro’s formula, you’ll probably be fine. I think what they use in the Pro palettes is on the more powdery side, though I have had better luck with the original Pro and Pro 2 palettes vs. the Mega ones.

I’m really sorry and sad I had no chance in hell to get it , bcz they made it an ulta exclusive no one outside of US was able to get it ,and if they do it is double the actual price which I don’t think is worth it . It’s a really nice palette but why make it so hard for your fans/customers to get it I don’t get their gain rather than piss a bunch of people off and lose your clientele, i love their stuff but I am not that happy with their company on the whole they might lose me as a loyal customer..
