Well, let’s talk pricing first, what do you all think? Do you think Lorac pricing is okay? Too much? I think it is just right! You are paying for quality, and that says a lot!! I believe these are exclusive to Ulta and Khols, and possibly the Lorac website!! Get them while you can because they are selling out fast, I had to order some online because my store (Khols) wasn’t getting any in stock, frustrating my so glad I got them, they are seriously beautiful!! I can’t even deal with the cute packaging, so cute! I knew I had to have the whole collection, these were made for ME! Lol hehe! The packaging is the typical Lorac packaging, sturdy cardboard, with a high quality mirror inside the palette, the designs are imprinted, and raised which adds a fun spark to the palettes!! The packaging has butterflies, cats, gemstones, snowflakes, and just pretty objects, like I said very hip, boho, hipster, modern, spritual, and unique, I am really digging it, perfect for me! The colors in both the eyeshadow, and blush palettes are both very buttery, pigmented, bendable, soft, but I do want to mention they are a bit powdery, kind of typical of Lorac pressed powders though. They are quite crumbly, which is wasteful in my opinion, they do blend nicely, but I am not sure this formula is the same as the Mega Pro formula, maybe it’s just the way I swatched, with them, not sure. Regardless they are still very good quality with a wide variety of colors, mattes, and shimmers, all very beautiful! Okay the lipsticks, OMG my goodness, these are literally the best liquid lipsticks I have EVER tried, no joke, see the pictures for lasting ability, the last photo is after I scrubbed with soap, water, and a paper towel, they are fully waterproof, and do last, and stain your lips, so be aware, they do try perfectly matte, I tried to get pictures of first application, and dried, then wet again, hoping to help show wearing power. I highly recommend these, they smell like vanilla cupcakes, and apply very opaque, and no re dipping the wand into the tube, a little goes a long way! This set of 4 is a great deal because just one I think is around $18 each! Definitely get this collection if it’s something you love, like I do, it will look flattering, and beautiful on many skin tones, I am in love!! What do you think about this collection?

  1. I have Lorac Pro Palette and I absolutely love it..but we don’t have Lorac here in Canada. I was eyeing up this eyeshadow palette online because it looked so pretty – that’s a little disappointing that the shadow quality isn’t the same standard as their usual shadows.
    Love the packaging on this California Dreaming launch – so fun! Although the snowflakes are a little odd…

  2. Oh wow, I haven’t seen Loracs liquid lipglosses before but they look like they’d be great. I love the color tones you chose too. I have tried their lipsticks and it’s been a total favorite of mine so I have no doubt that they’re as great as you say they are! I’ll have to try one out!

    xo, JJ
