“Go PRO with LORAC!

LORAC’S velvety-smooth Eye Shadows and Blushes are ultra-pigmented and packed with long-lasting PRO power so you can easily contour, shade, line and define, just like a PRO!”
I was a late-comer to the party on this one. Having so many eyeshadow palettes containing neutrals, I really didn’t feel I needed this one, despite the good press it has received since it first came out. I adore Lorac’s eyeshadows (owning and loving both the Unzipped and original Pro palettes)–but, as lovely as they are, I couldn’t justify buying yet another palette containing a selection of browns and creams, even if I loved the quality. So, for the longest time I passed this one by.
Then one day, when I was being particularly cranky (and lazy), I ran off to work with nothing more than BB cream on my face. When I took a look in the mirror later, I realized I looked pale and, well, dead. I badly needed some makeup to make me look less like a corpse dragged out of the river. I keep a pretty decent stash in my purse, but eyeliner and mascara alone weren’t cutting it. I needed color; something to bring a little life to my pale, flat complexion.
And, suddenly, the Lorac Pro-To-Go Palette had a place in my collection. Or more accurately, it found a place in my office desk drawer. This super compact, fold-able palette doesn’t take up a lot of space, which was perfect for my workplace needs–but despite its small size, it contains six complimentary neutral eyeshadows with both shimmer and matte finishes, plus two blushes, a bronzer, and a decent sized mirror of its own.
Well, well, well now. Wasn’t this the perfect solution for my troubles on those days when I was running late (or just too lazy) to do my makeup before getting to work?
