Lorac Pro Contour Palette & Brush Review, Photos & Swatches
Hi loves! I know, I know… this review is WAAAAY overdue. Buuut better late than never. I miss reviewing stuff for you loves so let’s start with this one since this has been the most requested ever since I introduced this in one of my haul videos.
Product Description from the Lorac Cosmetics Website:
Go PRO with LORAC PRO Contour Palette! Created by celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw, this PRO artistry palette contains 2 matte highlighters, 1 shimmer highlighter and 3 matte contour shades to easily create perfectly sculpted features. LORAC’s velvety-smooth, blendable highlighting and contouring powders are fragrance-free and ultra-pigmented so you can highlight and contour, just like a PRO.
The PRO Contour Brush is a LORAC web exclusive. The PRO Contour Brush has a unique dome shaped which allows for effortless precision and control, a PRO must-have! Made from synthetic material, the PRO brush hair is hygienic and easy to clean between applications.
I bought this with the contouring brush included. I don’t know if they sell this separately so I figured that I should review them together as well. As for the palette’s packaging, if you’re familiar of the Lorac Pro’s packaging, then you’ll be familiar of this one, “finish-wise”. The palette comes in a sleek, black, rubbery-matte finish which unfortunately is a dust and fingerprint magnet. I like how thin the packaging is I’m just not a fan of the finish. Upon opening, you will see this huge mirror, allowing you to see yourself while you apply your entire face makeup. It’s also ideal for travel. It also comes with a plastic film so you wont get the product onto the mirror.
The palette comes with 3 contouring shades & 3 highlight shades. I know that there are a lot of makeup brands out there from drugstore to high-end coming up with their own version of contouring palettes but the reason that I got this one is because it features mostly cool-toned contouring shades. From the lightest to the deepest contouring shades, all of these are more on the cooler side. If you want to mimic that shadow effect then I suggest you give this palette a try. As for the highlighters, you get a beige, yellow and shimmery highlight. The yellow highlight is perfect for baking and the shimmery highlight is beautiful as well if you want that subtle glow.
Lorac/Lorac Pro never disappoints when it comes to their pigmentation and color pay-off. Each of these powders are ridiculously pigmented yet they’re very blendable. Although, if you’re a beginner, you might wanna be extra careful when it comes to using this palette. Make sure that you tap off the excess product and take it one step at a time. Apply it layer by layer, building it up to your preferred intensity. And of course… blend, blend, blend.
I miss my red hair
Another thing that I love from this is that it can double as a neutral eyeshadow palette. It’s practically everything you need when you travel. I’ve already used this entire palette and they lasted on me for 5-6 hours total. This palette has been used and abused and I must say, this is an instant hit.
As for the brush that’s included, it’s a thin brush with a dome-shaped tip for more precise application. It’s not as dense though so I suggest you use this only for initial application then you use other brushes to blend. It’s not really that ideal for blending, if I may say so myself.
Overall, I am really in love with this palette and I find myself gravitating towards this palette from time to time. I am really drawn towards contouring products being that I have such a round face, but this is the palette that made me love to contour even more.
Again, it’s richly pigmented though, so you might want to be extra careful when it comes to application. Like any other makeup product, start off small and work your way up, otherwise you might overdo it.
