LORAC Mega Pro Palette: IS IT WORTH THE HYPE?! | Review + Swatches

Hi beauties!

The LORAC Mega Pro Palette has officially launched after all of the hype it’s received on YouTube and other social media channels. Here’s the breakdown:

You get 32 eyeshadows in this palette. 16 are matte, 16 are shimmer. 28 of the shades are brand new, never before seen shadows. The 4 repeat shades are Black, White, Espresso, and Cream. The palette is more warm-toned and it leans more toward light to mid-toned shades; while there are a few darker, smokier colors, there are definitely a lot more lighter colors that work great as blending colors, crease colors, or even lid colors.

Price: $59
Availability: amazon.com or loraccosmetics.com (I’m not sure when it will be back in stock – I would recommend signing up to be notified when it’ll be back on Amazon!)

NEW Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquers & Lipsticks Review + Swatches!

Hi beauties!

I finally spotted the brand new Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquers and Lipsticks at CVS (see display below). The collection consists of 14 lipsticks and 12 lip lacquers, ranging from brights to bolds. The collection will be part of Revlon’s permanent line of lip products so if you can’t get your hands on them just yet, have no fear!

I got mine for $9.79 each while Revlon was having a BOGO half off deal (ladies, always stack your coupons!) I’m a huge fan of this collection: I love the colors offered, the pigmentation/color payoff, the creamy, buttery formula of the lipsticks, and the non-sticky feeling of the lipglosses.

One huge con for me (for both the lipsticks and the lipglosses) is the packaging. The lipsticks don’t twist down all the way, so you end up having to be very careful when putting the cap back on to make sure it doesn’t touch the actual lipstick. As for the lipglosses, aesthetically I love the iconic Revlon lipgloss packaging, but this time they’ve added a brush applicator (as opposed to a dough foot applicator). Nay for me.

Screen Shot 2014-10-14 at 10.12.52 AM

I was completely surprised at the weartime of the lipstick – Sweet Pea lasted a good 5 hours on me and did not look or feel dry, cakey, flakey, etc. It literally looked as good as it did when I first put it on. Same goes for the lipgloss, although I wasn’t eating, talking, or drinking (just editing!), so I’m assuming the glossiness probably would have faded had I done those things.

Overall, I’m a huge fan of this collection! If you can get your hands on them I highly recommend them.
