The Lorac Pro eyeshadow formulas in my opinion are the best that I have ever tried. They blend smoothly like a dream and last all day with very little fallout. Most of the palettes that Lorac comes out with are fairly consistent, and there are usually never anything that disappoints. The Lorac Mega Pro 4 palette is no exception.
The packaging on the Lorac Pro palette is beautiful with a huge mirror on the inside. It is also very slim and compact for the amount of product and is good for traveling, because it is light to carry. I got my Lorac Mega Pro palette on sale for $35, but it normally retails for $59. That is still a discount, considering the regular Pro palettes sell for $44 each, and you get half the amount of product.
The first two rows have matte finish shades (with the exception of a couple satin finish shades), and the last two are shimmery shades. I think that the Mega palette is a great value and worth purchasing for sure if the colors appeal to you.
That being said, I did notice something peculiar when I first brought the palette home. Lorac claims on their website that “this limited edition PRO artistry palette is packed with 32 all new eye shadows in all the matte and shimmer shades,” but when I swatched a few of the shades from my Lorac Pro palette, I saw some duplicates. I got curious, so I googled some images of the other two palettes that I do not own and saw some similar looking shades in there too. (I will not be including solid images or claims featuring the other two palettes, because I do not own them, and therefore, I cannot give a solid jugdement of whether the shades are actually the same in that palette.) This had me wondering if Lorac was just pulling shades from previous palettes to put in there.
They obviously aren’t all the same, but a few shades have me questioning the actual value of getting this palette if you already own one of the others. Aside from that though, I think that the Lorac Mega Pro 4 palette could be a gorgeous edition to anyone’s makeup collection and is worth the buy, in my book. This palette is limited edition, so you should hurry up and get one if you think that you’ll want it.
