Review + Look: Lorac Pro 2 Palette

Hey everyone! When I hauled this palette a few posts back, I was so excited to try it out! The original Lorac Pro Palette is one of my favorite palettes ever and when I heard they were coming out with a second one, I knew it would be mine at some point. First off the casing is pretty much the same as the original in feel and look, this one is just a gray color instead of black. The whole top row are matte shades and the bottom are shimmer. This palette is more on the cool side with the shades here. It also came with a sample size of their Behind the Scenes Eye Primer. If I remember correctly, the original palette also came with this primer. The Pro 2 Palette retails for $42 and can be found at Ulta and Lorac's website.


Look at this beauty! I was so excited when I opened this up and really wanted to play with it, but I held back and took some pictures first. At first glance, to me the colors all go nicely together and I automatically put colors together in my head of looks I wanted to do. I'm posting my favorite look I've done so far at the end, so stay tuned!


Now I didn't do swatches of these, so forgive me! When I was taking these pictures, it was early on in the day and my lighting seemed to make the colors look true to what they are in person. Instead of describing each one, I'm just going to say my favorites in each section. 

I first noticed Lt. Brown. I thought this would be an amazing crease color.

Nectar is also a great crease color, which surprised me. Definitely more peach toned than Lt. Brown, but when I used it in my crease, it just made my whole look come together nicely. 

Rose is just freaking beautiful! I can't get enough of this color and it's going to be in the look I post here!


I'm digging pretty much every color in this section, but Navy really intrigued me. I'm not the biggest fan of blues on my eyes, but I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it looked. I'll be posting a look with this color and Silver later. 

Chrome is amazing to me! It's  like a taupey grayish color and looks beautiful on the eyes.

Onto the look...



I primed my eyes as usual, then took the Rose color and used it all over my eyelids up to the crease. I then took Nectar and blended that into my crease. I took a little bit of Cocoa to define the outer corner of my eyes a bit and finished off with mascara. I don't know why I forgot to highlight, but oh well. I must've been a little excited and just didn't remember to! Aside from a couple mascara smudges, I absolutely love how this look came out! Nectar was such a surprisingly great crease shade and I can't wait to use it more. Rose, oh Rose, how beautiful you are! If I had to pick one shade that's my favorite in the whole palette, Rose would be the winner. It's just gorgeous!

If you only buy one palette this entire year, have it be this one! You have your neutrals for everyday and then go to some fun colors for nights out or when you're feeling fancy. I'm just so in love with this baby and have been using it almost everytime I've done my makeup. Seriously, I haven't been this excited over an eyeshadow palette since Urban Decay brought out Naked 3. 

What do you think of the Lorac Pro 2 Palette?

  1. I have been on the fence with this palette because I typically like warmer colors but I can't help but love the look of this palette. I love the first one so I just might have to get this one as well. Great review! :)

    1. Lorac is a great brand. I haven't tried much from them, just their eyeshadow palettes and single shadows, but I'm always impressed with them

  5. this palette looks so amazing. I wish Sephora still carries Lorac here in Canada but unfortunately they are not. So hard to get my hands on even the original one. The darker shades look so rich and perfect for fall and the neutrals are perfect for everyday.
