Lorac Croc Palette

Lorac makes some of the best coordinated makeup palettes that take the guessing out of creating a polished, put together look. I've been using the Snake Charmer for several years now (even though the blush is too bright for me nowadays). It's my go-to item for a shimmery evening look (and it slides easily into the slimmest clutch), but it's a bit bold for daytime. I don't remember why I never paid more attention to the understated Croc palette, but I recently rediscovered how great it is.

The muted rose blush is Soul, one of my current favorites. Three of the eye shadows have delicate shimmer that is daytime appropriate, and the fourth is a suede brown that creates depth. It's not dark enough to use as a liner, but it definitely works well in the crease. The shadows have a delicate smooth texture and they blend together seamlessly. The pigment, like every Lorac product I've ever tested, is rich and the color payoff is great and very true to what you see in the pan. I like playing and creating lighter and darker variations, according to the mood, but I mostly blend the highlighter with one of the darker colors for an effortless, polished but almost bare look. Used over a primer, the eye shadows hold for 14 hours easily with no creasing and minimum fading.

Lorac Croc Palette ($36) is available from Sephora and Ulta (where I bought mine).

  1. i've loved your blog for ages, here's my first comment. hope the unpacking is going well :) i also love lorac's cosmetics, just got introduced to them a few months ago. the palettes are very easy and excellent for my grad-student faces on the go (or in the faculty bathroom). you may want to check out their site - plenty of great holiday package and vip discount deals going on.

  2. I have this palette as well, and it is a go-to, especially for daytime neutral looks. You're right - with my UDPP it will easily hold all day and well into the night.

  3. This is probably my most beloved palette. It's effortless and always gorgeous on.

  4. I've wanted to try Lorac for some time now, but unfortunately it's not available in Australia, so I've had to order this palette online. Your recommendations are always excellent, so I'm looking forward to this addition to my makeup collection arriving in my letterbox.
