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!).

Sneak Peek: Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set Photos & Swatches

Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six shades of liquid eyeshadow with three shades being part of the Shimmer & Glow finish and three from the Glitter & Glow finish.

First Impressions

Only one of the shades is a shade I’m familiar with–Smoldering Satin–so I don’t have too much food for thought at the moment. Peachy Sheen ran sheer and would definitely be better for adding glitter on top of something else rather than attempting to build it up (which does not always go well in this formula due to the amount of glitter). The three Shimmer & Glow shades seemed fairly pigmented and smooth, and they have more of a pearly-to-metallic finish so I am curious how well they’ll sit on the lid but haven’t had the chance to try them yet.

Little Vices

Urban Decay Little Vices Lipstick Kit ($25.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains five travel-sized lipsticks with two exclusive shades (Double Crossed and Mad) and one just-released shade (Love Drunk). The three shades that have been released before were consistent with their full-sized versions. Mad was the weakest in the set, as it was sheer and patchier, and would be most suitable for use as a layering shade as a result. I liked the set overall and think that if the shades appeal, but the Metallized shades still under-performed (consistent with the permanent line).

Value

Full-sized Vice Lipsticks retail for $17.00 for 0.11 oz. or $154.55/oz. The set contained 0.15 oz. worth of lipsticks or $23.18 worth of product–I was actually surprised it wasn’t priced at $20 (Urban Decay is usually pretty reliable for value-packed sets). On the flip side, for less than the cost of two full-sized lipsticks, you would be getting five shades, and as long as you’re not someone who tends to finish lipsticks quickly, the set would still be worth checking out.

Temptalia Asks You

For something that I’ll use up, sure, absolutely. I’ve learned over time that it’s just very, very hard to finish most cosmetics for me (even when I wasn’t blogging as much!) that I don’t buy backups much for anything color-wise. I’ve done so with discontinued holy grails like Chanel Dragon or Burberry Trench. I’ll purchase backups of certain skincare products or basics (like foundation, brow gel, etc.) when there’s a good sale but try to limit to just one backup… except lip balm, since I go through that often enough!
