This is the holiday palette I’ve been waiting ALL year for — the Mega Pro 3 palette!! 😀 I know every beauty brand is coming out with something special for the holiday season…but me being a HUGE LORAC fan and pretty much obsessed with their PRO palettes….The Mega Pro is the only one I care about! So! Did it live up to my (high) expectations? Let’s get into the down and dirty! 😛
If you’re curious to see last years palette, you can read my review HERE!
LORAC Mega PRO 3 Palette
The packaging this year is a creamy-white with a rose gold print. I know I’ve heard some people say they don’t like it because it’ll look dirty fast…but it’s honestly my FAVORITE packaging out of all the Mega Pros. Yes, it’s white, but I find that no matter what the color of the palette, shadow smudges still show up because of the texture that the palette is. 🙂
At first glance there doesn’t seem to be anything extraordinary about this palette. It just seems like a typical neutral palette. And it is — in a GOOD WAY! I feel like there is a good mix of both warm-toned and cool-toned eyeshadows in this palette that people of a wide variety of hues and tones can get a lot of good use out of it.
A regular PRO palette (that has 16 eyeshadows) retails for $44. So if you think about it you’re just paying $15 more for TWICE as many shadows. Right there, I feel like this is a no-brainer in value. As long as the eyeshadows are good, right?! Let’s check out the swatches below…
The shimmers are fantastic — that red shade showed up lighter than it appeared in the palette, but I found it still applied smoothly. The mattes are also really good, though I found more than one shade that felt dry compared to the typical LORAC PRO formula. Specifically the eggplant and navy shade on the far right on the top row. However, I’ve used both and thought they both performed very well.
No Issues Using it!
Above is an eye look I created using a lot of the warm copper-ish shadows in the palette. Each shadow I used blended effortlessly, didn’t skip, and showed up beautifully. I’ve used this every day since I received it (about a week) and each look I used a different shadow. And I never ran into any issues working with any of the shades. 🙂
Yes! Even though some of the mattes are dryer than typical and that red is misleading, I TOTALLY recommend it. I think this palette would be the PERFECT gift to give someone who is either just starting out in their makeup adventure or who wants to invest in their first high-end palette. The LORAC Mega PRO 3 can give you every day eye looks and more glam, date night looks. And there are so many shades that are SO appropriate for fall, am I right?!
Okay, now that I am done GUSHING over how much I love this palette…let me know, did you buy this palette?? Do you own any other LORAC PRO palette? I am a BIG fan of their palettes, let’s fan-girl in the comments!!
