Brief Breakdown of Lorac Pro and Lorac Unzipped Palette

Picking eyeshadow palette can be frustrating, too many choices, too many good reviews, too many beautiful palettes and some of us have limited budget.





Lorac Pro Swatches 

Lorac Unzipped Swatches 


I have planned to write a review of my LORAC PRO palette before I ordered my LORAC UNZIPPED Palette, but soon after my UNZIPPED was arrived, I know it`s better to write a brief breakdown of them.

My overall comment about these palettes is they are really good quality palettes. Their shadows are mostly pigmented, soft and buttery, especially the metallic shades. Both of them can be used for achieving neutral, daily basic look and smokey eyes and both of them are sold with sample sized of the Lorac Behind The Scene Eye Primer which I don`t really use because Lorac eyeshadow stays put beautifully without primer on my lids.

Let`s talk about the Lorac Pro first. It`s a really versatile palette consists of 16 eyeshadows, eight matte and eight shimmery shades. The lighter matte shades might need to be built up on medium - dark skin tone but the darker matte shades and the shimmery and metallic shades have amazing pigmentation especially Gold, Garnet and Slate.

In the other hand, Lorac Unzipped palette consists of ten full-sized eyeshadows, with four matte shades and six shimmery and metallic shades, the overall tone of this palette is rose and bronze with a red burgundy brown shade(Unbridled). All shades are supremely pigmented and soft with minimal fall-out.

If you watch Kathleen Lights talks about this palette on her My Make Up Stash - Palette video, she mentions that she isn`t happy with the two shimmery shades in the second row which are Undiscovered and Unreal because of lack pigmentation and grittiness, I find that the shades actually buttery and pigmented, they might be not really showed up because they are lighter shades.

Now, which one do I prefer? I can`t deny that Lorac Pro Palette is versatile, but if you don`t wear any darker eyeshadow IRL,  you don`t really need it. To be honest,  I don`t really use the purple, slate, espresso and black shades,  but I can say that it  will be a great palette for those who like smokey eyes besides neutral eye make up or those who work as make up artists.

Another thing I should mention is , one of makeupalley reviewer mentions that Lorac Unzipped shows up better on her olive skin and darker eyelids due to dark circle and I do agree. The Lorac Unzipped is more pigmented for olive and medium-dark skin tone girl than the Pro one.

I should say that the Lorac Unzipped is the winner for me. Don`t get me wrong, I love my Lorac Pro palette, but I find myself enjoying Unzipped than the Pro one.

Hope this help, kisses and hugs.

I got my Lorac pro @loveformakeup_id and My Lorac Unzipped from @tnt.beauty.shop

Out Of Comfort Zone, L`oreal Pure Garnet Lipstick

Halloween is the best time of a year to try out bold and weird lipstick color, agree?

As I didn`t have time and patient to think about Halloween costume, I decided to purchase a new lipstick in vampy color and recreate a modern twist of Morticia Addams. Because the time was limited, I chose to visit cosmetics counter in a mall than ordering Colourpop online.

I have been eyeing the L`oreal Pure Red series from months ago but I know I would rarely use red IRL as I`m working as a teacher. I was interested with Blake Lively`s which isn`t available here,so Pure Rouge is on my wishlist, but Pure Rouge is not a vampy color, so I chose Sonam Kapoor`s Pure Garnet which is darker.

Bottom : My L`oreal Lipstick in Pure Garnet

Pure Garnet is a matte deep, wine, almost burgundy kind of red which is gorgeous for night time. The texture is amazing, as it`s a matte but creamy and easy to be applied and it doesn`t have any weird smell. The packaging is elegant, with all black and a button which shows the color and Sonam` signature on the cap. While wearing this shade, you don`t need  to apply a lot of make up to be ready, but the application can be tricky, I use a lip brush to apply a tint layer of the lipstick before applying the color straight from the tube.

I personally don`t think that I can pull this color, but my SO gives me approval with this color and it makes me think to purchase any burgundy, darker red lipsticks.
Those dark circles

If you have sensitive lips, this baby will cause chapped lips for a day, but it`s a really beautiful and affordable lipstick, prepping your lips beforehand will be helpful for those with sensitive lips.

Will I purchase another color? Maybe, but nothing beats Colourpop Matte Lippie Stix so I don`t think I`m going to purchase another color too soon. But If you don`t have sensitive lips, you can consider to buy this lipstick for IDR 155.000 at L`oreal counters.

What`s inside : The Body Shop Royal Anniversary Basket Sale

In the second week of October, The Body Shop Indonesia had sale for some selected products. As I had to buy gift for my friend, I spent time to find gift for her and checked some items which were on sale. I picked the Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in Shade Deep Matte (04) which is the darkest one and the Colour Crush Eyeshadow in Shade Bronze Bliss (210).



Let`s talk about  the Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in Shade Deep Matte (04) which is my first matte bronzer. I picked the darkest shade because the other two are too light and number 3 is not really different with my skin tone so it will be like a compact powder for me. To be honest the range of shades is too limited and those who have darker skin than mine would not be pleased by the color selection. It will be really brilliant if The Body Shop releases wider range of shades and undertone.

I don`t have any complaint about this bronzer, it`s fine milled, smells like powder milk, great for subtle contouring and  give warmth on my face, but it has a bit of orange undertone in it so those who don`t favor bronzer with orange undertone can cross this out from their wishlist. But overall, I`m pleased with this bronzer and I think it`s a great bronzer though it`s a bit pricey ( As Maybeline Indonesia hasn`t catered any sculpting bronzer) and I love the packaging.

The color is a bit darker IRL

The Colour Crush Eyeshadow in Bronze Bliss (210) is a bronze color with a hint of gold and orange undertone, and I personally think it`s like the metallic version of the bronzer. It smells nice like a flower that I can`t identify.The color pay off is amazing and it`s nice for travelling , but it doesn`t beat my Lorac Pro eyeshadow in terms of longevity. Some reviewers complain about the plastic packaging because it looks cheap but I personally doesn`t have any problem with it. ( I haven`t taken any picture while using this eyeshadow)



Actual color is darker IRL


One swipe for each

In brief, I love these two new babies, they are great, they don`t cause any break out and they were on sale (the best part)

To be honest. after my recent visit to the Body Shop, I put the Shimmer Waves and Baked to Last Bronzer into my wishlist, but not now, maybe next year, or maybe when I really need it.

(N.B. My actually skin is not that soft, I can`t turn off the front camera filter)
