Do you know the difference of being a beauty blogger and a make up artist?
As a beauty blogger, I scout affordable yet quality products to share with my lovely readers. On the other hand, as a makeup artist, you must invest in high-end makeup products for you to be able to provide reasonable makeup services. Okay, let’s be real, you want to impress your clients with your high-end makeup products.
So ever since I started building my makeup kit, I always do my research first before buying them because high-end makeups mean the shedding of thousands. Yes, I kid you not! My first high-end makeup is the Lorac Pro Palette that I purchased for 2300php (around 50usd) from @everydaydaze on Instagram.
I know it sounds costly but since it is one of the brands that other beauty junkies and makeup artists swear by, I took a leap and try it myself.
Inside the box contains the Lorac Pro 16 eye shadow palette and a travel-sized Behind the Scenes Eye Primer in a squeeze tube. Sorry if the palette looks abused lols since I started using it before I have taken this photo. Those cute heart stickers serve as my markings in all my make up products.
I love that the palette is lightweight and travel-friendly where you can just slide it inside your make up bag. It also has its own mirror which is a plus. My only gripe is its matte black finished that is prone to scratches and stains.
The palette consists of 16 eyeshadows – 8 matte and 8 shimmers that can be used both for daytime and nighttime look.
As a makeup artist, this comes in handy not to bring too many eye shadow palettes with me.
From top to bottom – White, Cream, Taupe, Lt. Pink, Mauve, Sable, Espresso, Black
From the matte shades, my favorites are Taupe and Mauve for my transition colors and Espresso and Black to define and locate the outer V.
From top to bottom – Nude, Champagne, Gold, Lt. Bronze, Pewter, Garnet, Deep Purple, Slate
Nude and Champagne are perfect for highlighting the brow bones and inner corners of the eyes. While Gold, Lt. Bronze, Pewter, and Garnet can be used in creating soft smokey eye looks. You can also use the darker shades Deep Purple and Slate in defining your outer V.
Lorac Pro Palette has a great color pay off, soft and smooth texture.
I love that it has 16 wearable shades to play with and can create so many eye make up look from daytime to night time look. Longevity-wise, they lasted for 6 to 8 hours without creasing and fading. They will definitely lasts longer if you used eye primer beforehand.
Overall, I highly recommend this palette! Totally worth the price!

Thank you for your comment on my blog!
Yes, i follow you on GFC #72, follow you me back? ;o)
Have a nice day!
It's a beauty! 🙂 What I really wanted to learn is to do eye makeup. I've been checking out how-to vids but don't have the time yet to follow it. 😀
True, make up artist also invest on workshops! Good luck on your chosen career. Frustration ko dati ang maging make up artist so hanggang hairstylist na lang ako hehehe
Wow that is indeed expensive. The shades and color are very vibrant though and would certain look stunning worn.
Good to know about this. I have yet to try eye makeup. I admire those who are good at it as it's such an art in itself.
I don't put eyeshadow because I don't know how. But I have some in my drawer given to me by friends.
i'm not a makeup fan but trying to learn for the past couple of weeks. i might try this when i'm already used to the blending, shading and what not 😀
Lorac Pro looks like a great palette!! Great review.
At age 62, my mom still loves to color her face with those make ups. Most of her relatives will always give her make ups as pasalubong. Your Lorac Pro set is something she would definitely love.
I don't have a single piece of high-end makeup to date! It indeed sounds expensive but I'm sure the palette is well worth it.
To be honest, I know nothing about eye shadows. I'll keep coming back for your posts so that I'll learn something from you. — Maria Teresa Figuerres
I don't use eyeshadow because I am not really sure how to use it. My eyelids are not showing kase.
Considering that there are 16 colors plus an eye primer as well, I'd say this product is worth the price. I'd consider buying this for myself.
That's alot of shades… I wouldn't know where to start! It is an investment though especially if you're a make up artist.
I want!!! Would you rather get this or the Chocolate Bar palette? Coz I think they're around the same price here (resellers)
