Lorac Mint Edition Collection - First Impressions

Last week I did a post announcing that Lorac was having a sale on their Mint Edition Collection. At the time I received the email informing me of the sale I didn't hesitate for a moment in buying it. The collection was an Ulta exclusive and was originally priced at $36, but on sale now for $17. What can I say? I am the kind of gal that can't pass up a sweet deal.

I wanted this collection since I first saw the cute mint wristlet and the mint matte eyeshadow. Mint has been fast becoming my 2nd favorite color. What's not to love about mint? It is a soft, beautiful pastel color.

The Mint Edition Collection comes with an eyeshadow palette which contains 6 eyeshadows (3 matte and 3 shimmer), a blush, a limited edition lipgloss, and and adorable mint and silver wristlet. The top row of the palette contains the matte eyeshadows, which are a matte cream, a matte beige, and a matte mint. The second row of the palette contains the shimmer eyeshadows, which are a taupe shimmer, a brown shimmer, and a dark purple shimmer. The matte cream and brown shimmer eyeshadows definitely have micro glitter in them. They are all great looking shadows that are pigmented and have the same buttery consistency that Lorac eyeshadows are known for.

The palette also comes with a coral shimmer blush.

The lipgloss is a limited edition coral pink lipgloss by the name of Christian.

The wristlet has silver like sequins on the outside over a mint fabric while the inside is completely lined in a mint fabric. It has a small zipper pocket and has a Lorac label.

The packaging on the palette is utterly adorable. It has a picture of a silver and mint clutch or envelope. It is the perfect size for travel or to keep in your purse. It is a neutral palette with the exception of the mint and purple shades, which definitely will add a pop of color.

This palette is still available for purchase on www.loraccosmetics.com for $17 if you are interested. The total price I paid including shipping was under $19.

I can hardly wait for tomorrow. I really enjoy being able to create makeup looks with new products. It is similar to having a new set of color pencils or paints and thinking of all the things that you will create on your blank paper of canvas. The whole process truly is comparable to creating a work of art. Tomorrow's Face of the Day will be created using this palette.

See you then...
