LORAC Pro Palette 2 Eyeshadow Palette

LORAC Pro Palette 2 Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 16 x 0.02 oz.; 1 x 0.19 oz.) contains sixteen eyeshadows, plus a miniature-sized eye primer. Overall, it’s a nice palette with a mix of colors, neutrals, mattes, and shimmers, so you can do a variety of looks with different finishes and levels of depth. The palette leans somewhat on the warmer side, and it is also heavy on medium-dark to dark shades. I would have loved to see one or two lighter, cooler-toned shades to play off of some of the cooler-mattes. It would have also been nice to have one or two shimmery shades that were cooler-toned, too. In general, the pigmentation was good across the board with one or two misses, and the eyeshadows were blendable, long-wearing, and had softer textures.

Comparing this palette to the original Pro Palette, Taupe seemed quite similar to Lt. Brown, and Black is in both palettes. Rose is a lighter, more metallic version of Gold, so they seem similar at a glance but are less so in practice.

Buff is a light, yellow-toned beige with a matte finish. It had good color payoff, a soft, silky texture that wasn’t powdery, and lasted for eight and a half hours before fading. bareMinerals Pacific Sands (LE) is lighter. Kat Von D Entomology (P) is yellower. Divergent Altruistic Almond (LE) is similar. Wet ‘n’ Wild Naked Truth #2 (P, $2.29) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Ali Ababwa (LE) is similar. Urban Decay Foxy (P, $18.00) is lighter. bareMinerals Daydream (P) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Lt. Brown is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation, which applied evenly and smoothly. This shade was easy to use, as it was so blendable, due to the soft, silky consistency. Worn, the color stayed true for almost nine hours before fading. LORAC Unspoken (P) is darker, warmer. MAC Rose Cloud (LE, $15.00) is similar. Kat Von D Glasswing (P) is lighter, yellower. Laura Mercier Café au Lait (P, $23.00) is similar. Makeup Geek Latte (P, $5.99) is warmer. Too Faced Milk Chocolate (P, $16.00) is similar. Chanel Charming #2 (LE) is a touch yellower. LORAC Taupe (P) is slightly warmer. Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Cool Gray is a cool-toned, gray-leaning taupe with a matte finish. The texture of this one wasn’t as silky as nearly every other matte finish I’ve tried from LORAC; I wouldn’t describe it as stiff, but it just wasn’t as soft. The color payoff was decent to good, but again, that lack of silkiness to the texture seemed to make it less intensely pigmented. It still blended fairly well, though, and stayed on for eight hours before it started to degrade. theBalm #25 (P, $6.50) is grayer, lighter. Guerlain Two VIP #2 (LE) is lighter. Chanel Charming #5 (LE) is darker. MAC Fashion Fix (P, $21.00) is warmer. bareMinerals Exhale (P) is similar. bareMinerals Rowdy (P) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Nectar is a light-medium, muted peach with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft texture that leaned a little powdery, but it was blendable during application. It had good color payoff, and it wore well for eight hours on me. Inglot #341 (P, $6.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Plum is a dark, plummy purple with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, though the texture was a little thinner and drier. Applied, the color didn’t start to fade for eight and a half hours. MAC Fig. 1 (P, $15.00) is similar. Make Up For Ever #160 (P, $20.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Navy is a dark, lightly brightened, navy blue with a semi-matte finish. It appears mostly matte applied, but there are very fine shimmers spread throughout. The texture of this shade was incredibly soft and silky, though a bit powdery. It’s actually intensely pigmented and a little goes a very long way, but it doesn’t adhere as well to skin, so some of the pigmentation gets lost as it is blended against the skin. When used with LORAC’s eyeshadow primer, this wasn’t an issue. Applied, the color lasted for nine hours, but it did stain slightly (both with and without primer). MAC Prussian (P, $15.00) is greener. Make Up For Ever #6E (P, $20.00) is a cream product. Inglot #332 (P, $6.00) is more of a violet blue. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Charcoal is a medium-dark gray with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery, so the color payoff was noticeably sheerer as a result. When I tested it, the color didn’t show signs of fading until after eight hours of wear. bareMinerals Velvet Charcoal (P, $14.00) is lighter. MAC Gravel (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Typographic (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Soot (P, $15.00) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Tempest (P) is lighter, less matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Black is a medium-dark black with a matte finish. The texture was very soft and silky, but it was noticeably powdery, so you’ll want to pat it on and build-up color to minimize fall out. The color payoff was semi-opaque. It does wear well for eight and a half hours before fading. There is no shortage in matte blacks on the market: See comparison swatches/ view dupes.

Snow is a brightened white with subtly warm undertones and a frosted, almost metallic, finish. The texture felt soft and buttery, and the pigmentation was mostly opaque. It was easy to apply and blend on the lid, and it lasted well for nine hours before fading. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #1 (LE) is similar. Kat Von D Lunar Lights (P) is a touch darker. Tom Ford Beauty Ice Queen #1 (P) is cooler-toned. Tarina Tarantino Dreamy #1 (P) is warmer. Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #1 (LE) is cooler-toned. theBalm Sassy (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Flawless Figure (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Chillproof (LE, $15.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Beige is a light peachy beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The powder’s consistency was soft, buttery, and smooth, though it was just a smidgen powdery. The color payoff was excellent, and it stayed on well for nine hours. Too Faced Riviera (P, $16.00) is similar. Divergent Humble Sheen (LE) is darker. NARS Jezebel (P) is darker, more orange. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is darker. Disney by Sephora Splendid (LE) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #2 (P) is lighter. MAC Pink Sensibilities #1 (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Too Faced Amaretto (P, $16.00) is darker. Urban Decay Liar (P, $18.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Her Cocoa #4 (LE, $15.00) is darker. CoverGirl Scorching Cocoa (355) (P, $4.99) is warmer. Disney by Sephora Chateau (LE) darker. MAC Sable (LE, $15.00) is similar.
