So here's something that everyone on Instagram seems to be talking about - LORAC Mega Pro 3 Palette. I wanted to jump right in and review this, but I thought I'd give it some time and use it so that I can do a more complete review than just show you swatches and talk about pigmentations. So now that I have used it for almost a week what do I think about this product?

First, I think the pigmentation of these eyeshadows are amazing. They feel buttery smooth, but do have A LOT of fall out so you definitely need to tap your brushes before applying these eyeshadows. This is a shame because this palette is white and after one use my whole palette looked like it was very well-loved. They also do blend very well so I think any beginner who has difficulty blending eyeshadows would love this palette. However, some of the darker colors, like Eggplant, apply very patchy on my oily lids. These eyeshadows might perform better with a primer underneath, but I personally don't think its fair to do a review on eyeshadows because people use different primers and different primers do vary in quality.

Second, this palette is absolutely beautiful to just look at, and I particularly love the matte shades in this palette. I do however find that this palette is not as versatile. The left half of this palette is full of shades that I probably would use to highlight my inner corners or as a transition shade, and the right half of this palette is full of dark browns and burgundy colors that I would use for a smokey look, to deepen my crease, or to blend out my eyeliners (honestly with this palette, I don't think I need to buy any more brown eyeshadows ever). I personally think that all over the lid shades determine how unique and versatile a palette is, but with this palette I only see Cider, Bellini, Rust, and Rose Quarts as such eyeshadows (for my personal taste of course). Cider and Rust remind me of Makeup Geek's Flamethrower but less intense, Bellini is gorgeous but a bit too light for my skin tone, and Rose Quartz a bit too cool toned. 

I do think that if you love your smokey eye makeup, you will absolutely adore this palette. As a person who likes something more natural and light and likes a palette with bunch of all over the lid shades with a few dark + highlight + transition shades, this palette wasn't perfect. Given the number of the eyeshadows in this palette, I just thought there would be more. The original LORAC Pro Palette, on the other hand, is the one I find more versatile than this one.

Overall, I do not think I would feel comfortable bringing this with me on a trip because I would be craving for some other metallic shades to put on my lid to spice things up. However, I can imagine myself using this palette everyday WITH my Z-palette, which is 80% composed with those foiled, metallic all over the lid shades that are not too dark and not too light. And this palette would most definitely be the palette that I will reach for when I want to complete a smokey makeup look!

So here's a look I created with this LORAC Mega 3 Palette. I used Eggplant, Brown Sugar, Hickory, and Tulle!

By the way, this is what my palette looked like after doing finger swatches. White looked pretty, but I don't think it was a good idea.
