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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Just expensive for my budget! Haha ^-^ The product looks promising based sa mga photos mo, Miss Yette. I’ve been thinking what contouring product should I get na affordable, say within 1k. Any recommendation for me? =)

    • If it’s contouring palette you want, you might want to try BYS, or Sleek. You can also try the ones from ELF. The one I featured in my haul/faves. Unfortunately, it’s still not yet available here in our country. You can also try City Color Contour Effects. But if you just want a contouring product and you’re just learning, try Shawill’s Perfect Powder #003. It’s a really good cool-toned contouring powder and it’s not as pigmented as Lorac so it’s very beginner friendly. You can definitely build it up.It’s also very affordable. It’s only P168 I believe.

    Haven’t tried anything from Lorac but I keep hearing good things about the brand.
    I just started contouring the past 3 months and I still consider myself a beginner, but I love the BYS contour palette and another from LA Colors. Highlighting is another topic though, I can’t see the effect of highlighting no matter how much I apply!

    • You might need a lighter shade? Or perhaps the lighting. I used to think that I can’t see the highlighter on me whenever I apply it but the moment I stepped out of my room my face looked like a huge disco ball. So you might want to consider the lighting as well. Otherwise, check out other shades. Mary Lou Manizer from the Balm works for everyone because it’s really light.

    This Lorac palette is so pretty from the packaging to the photo of you wearing it. Happy skin contour powder is my fave but hopefully soon I could try this out:) I understand why you missed that red hair because it so gorgeous on you! Btw, I miss you on doing review. I’ve been checking if you have new post always. Have a great day always:)

    • Awww, I miss doing it too.. But ever since Sept things just kept piling up one after the other. So sorry about that. Anyway, I have more reviews in my “baul” so stay tuned

    Up until now, I still don’t know how to contour so I’m just settling for more affordable contouring kits as of the moment for me to experiment on. But I so love Lorac. I promise I would buy that once I’m good with contouring. Love how did the contouring. I currently have the Happy Skin and City color kits.

    • I don’t have any face products from Happy Skin, I love their lip products though & would love to try their cheek colors in the future
