Lorac Skinny Palette in Navy Swatches and Review

Hello friends,

Today I bring you all an affordable LORAC Skinny palette! It comes in three variants - nude, plum and navy. This is from the small US shopping I did through my dear friend revathy. I had mentioned in detail about it here.

I got it only because I wanted a decent everyday palette. I have started incorporating eye shadows in my everyday makeup routine and since all the good shades I have are darker and not office friendly, I decided to pick this one up and see how it fares.

REVIEW

Lorac Skinny Palette in Navy comes with a gorgeous combination of workable shades. It has cool toned beige, an antique gold color in metallic finish, grey, taupe, matte brown, black and a dark blue color! A perfect combo!

In terms of packing, the eye shadows come in a skinny dark blue textured palette with a magnetic closure. It feels nice and sturdy. It also has a large mirror in it. It does not come with any applicator.

Coming to the colors, it has seven shades.

The first shade is a light beige shade with negligible silver shimmer. It has a matte finish with a tiny amount of sheen peeking through. On my skin tone, the sheen/shimmer does not look obvious. It looks just like a matte beige color.

The second one is grey. It has satin finish. It is very pigmented and easy to work with. But I am not fan of this color on my eyes.

The third eyeshadow is dark matte brown. It is very versatile. I use it on my crease most of the times. It is very easy to work with and the pigmentation is amazing. The texture of this one is very smooth and creamy. It does not feel chalky at all.

The fourth one is a gorgeous antique gold color. It looks flattering on my skin and the pigmentation is very good. It is smooth, creamy and very easy to work with. It is my favorite shade in this palette. It has metallic finish. I pick the product in a flat brush and spray water in it to get an intense pigmentation.

Fifth shade is Taupe with satin finish. It is an excellent over-all lid color and has good pigmentation. It is also very blendable and easy to work with.

The next shade is dark navy blue. The finish is satin and It has very good pigmentation. I am not quite happy with its texture. When compared to this eyeshadow, I prefer the texture of my inglot one here. It is quite powdery and does not blend evenly.

The last shade is matte black. It is not the most pigmented black in my collection. But it is very good for blending the blue out or creating a smokey eye. I prefer the black eyeshadow from the accessorize palette over this.

Key Highlights of the Palette

The color combination is very good and versatile
Affordable.
The Antique gold shade, dark brown and taupe are very good for creating everyday eye looks
All the eyeshadows except the beige one stays put for more than 6 hours on my eyes.
The eyeshadows creases when used without a primer on a hot and humid day.
With primer, I did not notice any creasing.
The beige shade is chalky
The navy blue and black aren't the best

Simple Dramatic Eye Makeup using the Lorac Skinny palette in Navy

For this look, I used the dark brown on my crease (with sigma crease brush) and went over the outer corner with the black. On the lids i used the gold color with a flat (Wet) shader brush from kryolan. I also used kryolan primer, Kryolan liquid eyeliner, Lakme Absolute Kohl and Rimmel Mascara.

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
3.5/5

I am not impressed with this palette. Though I really like most of the shades, I felt that the texture could have been better. I wanted to buy the Pro one but now I feel slightly discouraged. I don’t think I can spend around $50 with uncertainty in my mind. I’d rather buy from MAC and call it a day. Known devil is always better than an unknown angel.

But that said, it is a very good palette for the price I paid (without all the hassles of International shipping).  Thanks to my friend.

Do let me know of your views on this one.

Love, 
Raji
