LORAC Mega Pro Palette 2, Review, Swatch

This palette features 32 eye shadows, predominantly neutral in warm and cool tones, 16 mattes (top 2 rows) and 16 shimmers (bottom 2 rows). The case is made from blue cardboard which closes magnetically. Flip open and you are greeted with colossal mirror almost the size of the entire palette.

While some of the shades look quite repetitive (i.e Porcelain, Custard, Bisque, Sugar Moonlight), the quality of both mattes and shimmers are stellar. The mattes are consistently buttery-soft while the shimmers feel velvety sans fallout. They are arranged from lightest to darkest, with the top two rows dedicated to mattes and the bottom two for shimmers. These don’t budge or disintegrate when worn over eye primer.

4th Row (Shimmer)

Moonlight is creamy yellow

Seashell is creamy nude

Peony is peach

DK Sienna is chocolate brown

Penny is bronze

Olivine is taupey-green

Gold Leaf is gold

Black Ivy is dark olive green with gold specks

If you favor neutral with slight affinity to smoked out looks, LORAC Mega Pro Palette 2 is definitely worth-considering. The lightest shades, particularly the shimmers can be used as highlighter, if you think about maximizing practicality. 

Now let’s move on to my autumn-inspired makeup! With so many color choices, you can tell I had fun mixin’ and blendin’. I used Penny (bronze) on my lids, transitioned with Tangerine (brick orange) on crease, lightly blended with Goji (maroon) on crease. For my eyebrows, I used Cabernet (brown maroon) and for brow arch, I light-handedly applied Porcelain. For my inner eye corner, I used Moonlight for subtle-shimmer appeal. For my upper lash line, I smudged black eye liner and layered with Black Ivy (dark olive green). For my lower lash line, I smudged Cinnamon (copper), Goji and Black Ivy together.

    Very pretty Kath! I love how they completely separated the mattes from the shimmers in this palette.

    What a gorgeous palette! I love your swatches and the look that you created!

    Beautiful look! I like how the palette is arranged and the shades look great. I wish someone would give it to me for the holidays!

    That's a pretty fantastic palette!

    I love your look you are rocking the autumn look! You're making me regret not buying this.

    Pretty eye look. I like my Mega PRO Palette 2. 🙂

    I know it's called Mega but it's so hard to store the palette. I'm always moving my original around to new places.

    I love my LORAC palettes! The lip color is amazing on you!

    I am so on the fence with this palette. Everyone is saying to get it, and the colors are gorgeous and it just sounds overall amazing, but I feel like there's SO many colors in it that I might not ever reach for it… that sounds so backwards, ahha. Either way, the look you made is so pretty!

    Your eye look is absolutely gorgeous – you are rocking it. After I bought this palette, I didn't think I would love it as much as the first Mega Pro… but have been reaching for it a lot and using the bottom row tons. I have my review going up this week and I'm so glad this one is still available for purchase.

    Lorac is tricky to get here on top of this being an Ulta exclusive (they are also anti-Canadian) or I so would have jumped on this. Such great shades and I love how you've used them. Gorgeous as always!

  12. November 18, 2015 / 3:05 am

    Gorgeous look, I'm so glad I didn't pass on this palette.

  13. November 18, 2015 / 1:45 pm

    Such a gorgeous palette and I love the autumn look you created!

  14. November 18, 2015 / 6:45 pm

    I totally wasn't going to get this palette. Now I'm finding it harder to resist. Great look!
