Lorac Mega Pro Palette - 1st Look

The Lorac Mega Pro Palette is something that I have been dreaming, drooling, and obsessing over for months.

I may have even been counting down the actual days until its release.

With that in mind you can imagine my disappointment when I found out the release of the palette was going to be delayed a week.

Especially since I had been stalking Lorac's website the night before and noticed that it was uploaded on their website but you were only able to add it to your wishlist.

The next morning, October 1st (the original release date) I was feeling hopeful with my thoughts that maybe the delay was a joke, but I thought its actual availability would be a long shot. 

Just before 8AM I scanned the website, saw the palette, clicked on its picture and to my surprise the add to cart button was there.

Immediately I hit that add to cart button and checked out so fast that I may have not been breathing because I am pretty sure I was holding my breath.

Then I exhaled and checked my email.

There it was a confirmation email for my payment that was automated from Lorac stating that they were processing my order.

In the back of mind I was praying that the order wouldn't be cancelled because honestly that is just cruel and I would have been devastated.

That same day around 4:30 PM Lorac sent out the blast email below to its customers, which explains that while they were preparing their shopping page a glitch on their site allowed a lucky few fans to purchase the palette. They announced that the palette isn't sold out and that it will launch on October 7th.



On Friday (two days after placing my order) I arrived home to a box from Lorac.

Here it is, the Lorac Mega Pro Palette in all of its splendor and glory.





The Lorac Mega Pro Palette comes with 32 shades, 16 matte and 16 shimmer. 28 of the shades are brand new whereas 4 shades (white, cream, espresso, and black) are from either the Lorac Pro Palette or Lorac Pro 2 Palette.

I used the palette briefly this morning for a quick makeup look. I applied Sepia (1st row, 4th color) in the crease and under my eye and Cashmere (4th row, 2nd color) on the lid.

I can honestly say that the quality of these shadows are just like that of the shades from the Pro Palette and Pro 2 Palette. The mattes are soft and blend smoothly whereas the shimmers are buttery soft and pack a punch.

The eyeshadows in the Mega Pro Palette are also the same size as those in the Pro Palette and Pro 2 Palette.

The Mega Pro Palette is definitely a must have for anyone's makeup arsenal with its array of shades matte and shimmer that will allow for a flawless look every time.

Whether you want a neutral everyday look or a smoky look for a night out this palette is for you.

Get yours on Lorac's website on October 7th. The Mega Pro Palette is a limited edition palette that will only be sold on Lorac's website and Amazon.com.

Were you one of the lucky ones that was able to purchase the palette early or are you planning on getting it on October 7th?
