The Lorac Pro Metal Palette is a newly released, exclusive to Ulta, http://www.ulta.com, it has not been released on Lorac’s website as far as I know. The palette retails for $28.00/8 eyeshadows total 0.144oz/4g, the palette is limited edition. The entire palette is shimmer, which is a nice change of pace. This is the standard Lorac packaging, the cobalt color in the pan is very eye catching, it helped seal the deal for me, all the colors are pretty, but not colors I don’t already own! On first impression, the colors are beautiful, but no runaway color after swatching!Swatches are over primed skin, (hence, white under cast) using flat, dense shader brush. The eyeshadows are powdery with a lot of kick up, several swipes to get the color payoff. This palette is not a must have, if you have other Lorac Pro/Unzipped palettes, you probably own some of these colors. The palette is very compact(fits in palm of hand), all shimmer shades, the shadows can be use wet or dry, it fits perfect in makeup bag, while I reframe from using shimmer shades in crease area or lid to brow, I think you could come up with plenty of looks using this palette alone, especially in the spring/summer months. I would recommend this palette because Lorac shadows have good pigmentation, easy to blend pretty and user friendly!
