Review: Lorac afterGLO Eye Shadow Palette

Lorac afterGLO Eye Shadow Palette2

Lorac recently came out with a new eyeshadow palette as part of their Summer 2014 collection. The colors looked bright and fun so I knew this would be perfect for summer. The price is ridiculous as well! This palette, which contains 10 eye shadows, was only $24!

Lorac afterGLO Eye Shadow Palette – “This sleek and sexy palette contains 8 vibrant matte and shimmer shadows plus 2 over-sized neutral shadows, perfect for creating sizzling summer looks. Whether you’re headed to a pool party or a hot night on the town, LORAC’s afterGLO Eye Shadow Palette will give you endless color combinations to complement your summertime, sun-kissed glow!”

This palette is slightly bigger than an iPhone so it is very small and compact. The packaging seems like cheap plastic but it’s actually pretty sturdy. The texture of all of the eye shadows is very soft and creamy. They all seemed velvety and buttery when swatched. However, the pigmentation was not consistent. The deeper, darker shades, which are the two blues and the dark brown, were all true to pan and extremely pigmented. One swipe is all you need for intense color. The other 5 shadows varied in comparison, but with enough building up of color, you will get great pigmentation. The two most disappointing colors to me are the purple and coral shades. They both seemed absolutely beautiful in the pan but they swatch and apply differently. The colors don’t get as rich and vibrant as they look in the pan no matter how much you build up and apply.

The two lighter browns apply beautifully and are extremely pigmented over a base, such as NYX Jumbo Pencils or Maybelline Color Tattoos. The gold is very patchy but looks beautiful when applied wet. The highlighting shades are very pigmented and apply very easily. The shimmery pink shade is probably my favorite shade out of the whole palette. It applies almost like a champagne color and it is so gorgeous! I like to highlight my brow bone, inner corners, cheek bones, and down my nose with this shade. When using this palette, you definitely need to use a primer or base. Even though you really need to build up color for a couple of the shadows, they all blend very easily. There was also no fallout at all so that made me very happy. These shadows aren’t as long lasting as I wanted them to be. They started to fade after about 7 to 8 hours of wear. However, because this palette contains pops of color, neutral transition shades, and beautiful highlights, I would recommend this palette. It is very easy to use and would be great to use during the summer.
